Wow! You and your group were unbelievable at the wedding.
It was extra special given our long history. We heard from so many family and friends that said you guys were the best band they’ve ever heard at a wedding. I think you guys are getting better with age. And, most importantly, it was oh so meaningful to Katie that you were a part of this wedding.
Also want to express our appreciation for jumping in and taking care of the ceremony. Your personal touch on that worship song made the wedding very special for us. You might want to consider getting into the growing Christian worship music business.
Phil, thanks so much for everything you did to make last Saturday so special. Please pass on our appreciation to the rest of the guys.
