Dear Lee
We are very pleased to write you and thank you and your band for your wonderful performances at our wedding reception. You and the Silver Moon Orchestra far exceeded our hopes in setting the perfect mood for our dinner, and in filling the dance floor with lively and varied music throughout the afternoon. You did a wonderful job learning the swing song for our first dance. We were also excited that you provided a variety of music that everyone at our party was able to appreciate. In fact, many of our guests have expressed to us how much they enjoyed listening and dancing to your music. We were all very impressed with your performance and we will thoroughly enjoy recommending to our friends in the future. Thank you for your great performance,
Ben and Alicia Wolf

Dear Lee
We wanted to thank you so much for contributing to our "more-than-perfect" wedding day. You and your band are the ultimate professionals. You were right; people are still commenting how great the music was. I'm so happy we chose Silver Moon Band and I hope there's another opportunity to hire you again.
Warmly, Noreen and Eddie

Dear Music Lover,
We have enjoyed Lee Waterman and the Silver Moon Big Band on several occasions here at Mondavi Winery. As a matter of fact, they played for our Christmas party and everyone liked the music very much. We highly recommend this band because of their great musical performance. They are certainly a great invitation to dance.

Dear Lee It gives me great pleasure to write this letter. Please feel free to use it as a reference for future clients. We never did thank you in writing for the beautiful music you and the Silver Moon Big Band provided for our 40th Anniversary party in St Helena. Dancing under the stars was heavenly as you could see from the number of people who took to the dance floor. I had a "ball" dancing with so many of our guests to the classics of the big band era. Not only was the eleven-piece band wonderful, but you were amazingly of the party's tempo, playing quietly during dinner. You were also wonderfully co-operative in setting up and taking down a complicated layout out doors. Dick and I were completely happy with you and the Silver Moon Big Band and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend you to anyone desiring glorious dance music provided by co-operative, competent professionals.
Sincerely, Barbara and Richard Rosenberg
Dear Lee,
It was great to have the Silver Moon Big Band at our New Year's Eve event at the Corinthian Yacht Club. I thought you guys did a superb job and the music was excellent. The dance floor was full of people from the moment you started playing. I've received a ton of compliments about our event and your band. I hope to book you at some events in the future.
Regards, Bruce Powell
I am so glad to have received this email even though Jen and I are on the east coast. Please keep me on your email list. As it turns out, I have been meaning to write you for well over a year to thank you personally for the wonderful music you and your band provided for Jen's and my wedding. It's been a while since our wedding, so I'll understand if you don't remember performing for us. To refresh your memory, our wedding was on August 30, 2003, at Auberge du Soleil, and your band played a terrific rendition of Georgia on My Mind for our parting dance. I'm embarrassed that I'm only now writing, particularly because Jen and I were so very impressed with the wonderful music. Indeed, your music certainly stands out in our memories as one of the highlights of our day. Your band has such a dignified quality about it -- it definitely has a presence and yet you are so respectfully unassuming. Again, thanks so much to you and the rest of the members of Silver Moon Band. Jen and I will try to attend a gig of yours when we're out in California again!
Thanks, Jim Moseley Washington, D.C.
Dear Lee
You and your band were the perfect addition to our evening celebration. And thank you for jumping in to play for me when I sang an impromptu verse during my bouquet toss!!
