Good Morning Steve.

 Just to give you some feedback from the Honeymooners, they and all the guests thought you and the Pearlies were in their words “awesome” the perfect band, exactly what they wanted.

 Also they were so impressed with your willingness to  work in with the Best man and Grooms man allowing your Sax ( don’t know his name sorry ) player to accompany them with their little ditty…..they were just blown away.

Once again thanks to you and the boys for helping make their Wedding a memorable event.

Best Regards Brian and Barbie.

Your Message: – Hi was just looking at your website remembering the wonderful gig you did for us at our wedding. Everyone still remembers the music – we all had a wonderful time – swing and jazz – with a touch of bollywood! We danced the night away – I think we didn’t even stop til the early hours! I didn’t even remember to write a testimony then – so I’m writing one now. Looking forward to your album launch on Sunday.

Kind regards, Nadia and Rohit

 Dear Steve,

A quick note to thank you once again for a fantastic night last Friday.

We had an absolute ball and all of our guests have told us they had the best time.  Many people asked us about the band and we received numerous compliments.

We particularly loved how you were able to adapt to the setting and come out onto the terrace to be amongst the action, and allowed us to sing or perform.  Jenn in particular was thrilled to have a chance to perform with such a talented and easy going group who plays exactly the sort of music she loves to sing.

There is no doubt you were a key part of the success of the evening, and your warm and friendly personalities added to the atmosphere as well.

Hopefully we might see you around the traps one day soon.

All the best, and Happy Christmas Keith and Jenn

Hi Steve,

Now that the excitement of the night has slightly diminished and the blood alcohol has been reduced to zero, I like to thankyou again for your part in our night. You were sensational! We (including Dare) really appreciate you allowing the opportunity for Dare to get up for a couple of tunes. I know there is a risk involved when that happens.You read the state of play beautifully all night and when you played “compared to what” it blew us away, it is a masterpiece that does not get any where enough recognition.For people like our family, we never get sick of being reminded what a great place this part of the world is for music

Now doubt we’ll see you about

Regards

 Hi Steve,

We are absolutely ecstatic with how everything turned out, we can not thank you enough for the exceptional job you did on saturday night. We have had so many phone calls to say how wonderful the night was and wanting to know your name and details.  I can not thank you enough for everything you did to make it the best night of our lives.

The venue were blown away and I think will be recommending you guys for future use there. Mission accomplished getting everyone on the dance floor! Oldies, young ones, sour pusses and even Anthony with his crap back.

I think my favourite part was doing the Hokey Pokey with my dad – who doesn’t dance! The whole event was a constant roll of amazing song’s and I was singing the whole night through.

I could not have asked for a better night. Thank you for being amazing and easy to work with from the start and I will be highly recommending you to anyone and everyone.

Carly and Anthony.

p.s. I knew I would want to give you a tip, and I’m glad!

 Hi Steve

Just back from Hawaii where we continued what you started for me as the perfect 60th birthday celebration.  I wanted to say thanks for the most magical night on 9 March.  All my guests raved about the Pearly’s and I suspect you will get business out f it.

You are so fantastic and somehow the sound seemed even more perfect than ever…… the whole night was a dream come true for me, so please pass on our thanks to the rest of the hot4.  You are all amazing and I am SO happy that I “found” you…..

Blessings.  Kerri

Hey Tom and Steve,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the rest of the Pearly Shells for your amazing performance at our wedding on March 23rd in the Grampians! Our guests just could not stop raving about how much they loved the music and how it made them want to dance – you even got one of our grumpy old uncles who had not danced in 40 years on to the dance floor and he has been complimenting our wedding ever since!

So thanks again and great job!

 Mate, mate, what can I say? The Pearly Shells saved the wedding! They were just awesome. Your guys are really serious musicians – the way they make those instruments do what they want is beautiful to watch.

And their spirit, given the deluge, was much appreciated. True professionalism.

We would love to have you back again. There is a great old hall near here, real 1920s atmosphere, and I’m wondering how you’d feel about a night where we’d invite parents and friends of the school to a dance, bring a plate, have a supper etc I think you’d raise the rafters. And you know what? It’s waterproof.

Thanks for everything Steve, hope to hear back from you,

John

 Hi Steve!

Well we’re back from beautiful Boracay in the Philippines & I just wanted to say a huge Thank You to you & the boys for playing at our wedding at Siren’s on Sunday 19th Sept. You did an outstanding job! We loved the band & so did everyone else – I’ve had nothing but glowing reports! Bek & I are now ‘Die Hard’ Pearly Shells fans!

We loved the CD you gave us – Smithy (Bek) has even taken out her Bullet For My Valentine (heavy metal cd) from the stereo with the Pearly Shells taking up permanent residence in the CD Player! That’s praise indeed! Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to the lads!

How can I get some more Pearly Shells cd’s & do you guys have a Facebook page for friends of the band – we’d love to catch the band in it’s various forms live again!

Cheers & remember  .  .  .  . There really are seven nights to rock!

 After attending a friend’s wedding where the Pearly shells were playing, I quickly said “I want them!”

Both young and old hit the dance floor at our wedding…a true sign of a sensational band! The Pearly Shells hit the right note indeed helping our wedding night be one of fun, laughter and celebration. We have and will continue to recommend Steve and the Pearlys to others.

Hi Steve-thanks for Sat Night at AQ wedding-I felt you guys were ‘on fire’ and the feed back from the guests was all positive.

Sorry to see you stuck out the back- as I had hoped the seating arrangement had you in the main area (something was lost in the translation between PQ to AQ to Mel Aquarium –so I hope you got fed and looked after. I didn’t realize you were not in the main room till our late arrivals arrived. They I know were blown away with their dancing time

Anyway thanks heaps-your band certainly contributed to making the night one to remember – I hope your team enjoyed it also. Sure to see you out and about some time

Hi Steve,

Thanks for helping to make the Monash Medicine Ball of 2006 a resounding success. the feedback we’ve been getting has especially highlighted the Pearly Shells Swing Orchestra as a highlight – it was such a great sight to see the dance floor packed for the entire night! Thanks again for a great night, we may well get in touch with you again next year.

Hey Steve,

Jason Rollheiser here, I just wanted to say Thank you for the fantastic show
you and your band put on at my wedding reception, back on the 28th at Sails
on the Bay! Everybody had a great time and I give you guys full credit for
that. It looked like you guys were having a great time playing and I think
people picked up on that.

I can honestly say I had never been to wedding before where all the guests
stayed untill the very end. It has been my experience in the past that
people start to peeter out soon after the meal untill only a handful are
left at the end of the night, but this occasion everybody seemed to be
enjoying them selves so much that the night ended much to quickly for them.
I never had much of an oppritunity to thank you properly or even ask if you
had enough to eat and drink that night, sorry about that. I hope that it all
went well from your side.

Please pass along my sincere and exuberent thanks to your fellow band
members for a fantastic evening!!! I will be passing along your names to
whomever might be needing a great band for their special night!
Well Steve, I look forward to seeing you at the ‘Bendigo’ soon, please keep
me informed of you upcoming shows!! Thank you again!!

Regards,
Jason and Lauren Rollheiser.

Dear Steve (and the Pearly Shells)

Thankyou so much for playing at our wedding on March 27th 2004 at the Baths in Sorrento. Ever since I saw you play years ago at the Night cat, I have always wanted the Pearlys Shells to play at my wedding and I was so happy that when the day finally came, my dream came true. The band was fabulous. All the guests commented on how brilliant you were, the atmosphere your tunes produced was perfect. Very cool, laid back and swingin. Ed and I had the best time dancing the wedding dance to a live band. You all looked super cool and I am looking foward to dancing to you again.

Kind regards,
Nicole & Edward Burnes
