“Dear Friedel,
I would like to sincerely thank you for having played an important part in making our function on Saturday evening such a great success.

Our guests were pleasantly surprised to be entertained by a live artist/saxophonist. Your rendition of the various songs just added a “special touch” and created a mellow and relaxed atmosphere.

Allow me also to commend you on being punctual and very professional in the manner you have rendered a service to us. Wishing you all the success.

“Hi Friedel
On behalf of the Client, Stephen Pellerade and Corporate Dance company S.A. we would like to thank you for your amazing talent you displayed to the guests for the Gatsby themed event and his surprise wedding.

Your saxophone playing is soul full. The guests were highly entertained by your character, skills and the way you conducted that saxophone to produce sound that is satisfying. Some of the guests said that the entertainment felt like they were in a movie.

We are truly looking forward to partner with you in the future.
