I write to you from back home in the states with jet lag from hell yet great appreciation and admiration for yourself and the members of The Chocolate Martinis. You were all magnificent in your musicianship! That insane crowd of Brits and Americans were speechless over how amazing you all were. 
Many thanks for the kindness you all showed me and for kicking some serious ass for an amazing crowd. 
Both Felicity and Stanley agreed you were all incredible.
– Best,
Christine Tucci Angell

What a fantastic band you are!!! You absolutely made the evening at L’anima… such a wonderful mix of ballads and classics and rock! And something for every age too… which is pretty rare these days. So this is just to say a very big thank you to you all for making the party go with a real swing. You were wonderful.
– Joanna and Oliver Blunt

Thank you so, so much for the best night ever. You were amazing! Everyone kept asking how we managed to find you guys. The music absolutely made our wedding.
– Erica Hatley, Wedding Reception, Surrey, July 2012

Thank you for playing such an amazing set at our wedding at Stoke Place this August. Everyone said what a fantastic band you are and the dance floor was packed right until the end of the night, with guests who had never previously spoken before dancing together because the music and the atmosphere was so good! Mim and James were both absolutely fantastic and Johnny and I are especially grateful with what you all did to learn our first dance song, you made it really special for us and it was absolutely perfect. You definitely made the night for everyone and we have been on a high ever since.
– Laura and Johnny Etkind, Wedding Reception, Buckinghamshire, August 2011

We’ve had lots of guests saying how good the band were. Really professional – couldn’t have asked for more!
– Mark Dodson, Wedding Reception, Buckinghamshire, September 2010

Wow! What a bloody fantastic night. I just wanted to say a huge personal ‘thank you’ from Dean & myself. Mim, wow! What a voice. Everyone commented on how great the band was and our ‘first dance’ was perfect. Having you guys made the night without a doubt so ‘thank you’ once again for making our reception party such a success. People were shouting for more when you had finished which says it all
