  2. Wedding at Maraetai Boat Club   
    Thank you for the absolutely awesome job that you guys did for us at the wedding. It was just magic and everyone was thrilled with it. We got comments from all over. You made it a wonderful night for us.  
    Lyn Yeoman, Maraetai.
  3. Party on board the Ultimate Escape 
    Bernie and the boys were fantastic! They totally made Lorraine’s party at our house and on the water, all guests have been raving about them.  They gave it their all. Thanks again to the Custodians, they rock.  
    Best regards, Stuart
  4. Te Aroha RSA  
    Hi Bernie, Nick and Jimmy.  WOW!  What a great night at the RSA. Even the best event organiser could not arrange an exit like that!  Te Aroha RSA is alive and kicking with Elvis.  Its been 10 years since the Te Aroha RSA has had such an incredible night.   The  night the Custodians and Elvis came to town, right from the 1st song to the grand entry by ELVIS on the president's VXT 1300 to the even grander exit by the same method, but if you want to to know why a grander exit, you will have to visit the Te Aroha RSA and listen to the tales about how Elvis left the building.  Bernie, Nick & Jamie,  thanks for a great night and we look forward to your return soon.  
    Regards Russell Smith, President, Te Aroha Memorial RSA
  5. PGG Wrightson Real Estate Conference
    Dear Bernie,Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for looking after us at our ‘Making It Happen’ conference held in Auckland at the Heritage Hotel.  Firstly I would like to say from the outset we found your team very easy to work with and would like to commend you on going to visit the venue before coming back to us with your recommendations which were very helpful. We then required an onsite meeting with you to go over the nights events as this was our gala awards evening and again we must say that it was very easy working with you and nothing seemed to be a problem.

    On the night, well what can we say, you filled the gaps admirably where necessary during the breaks in our awards and at the conclusion of the awards ceremony the dance music started and the dance floor was immediately filled and you continued to have our troops boogying the night away until the conclusion of the evening.

    Bernie, I just want to pass our thanks onto you and the guys and certainly would use your services again. Please feel free to pass on my contact number to anyone who is thinking of utilising your services and would like to chat.
    Yours sincerely
    Deane Pettit 
    National Training and Recruitment Manager

    Thanks again for an absolutely awesome night!  Brett had a great night as did everyone else.  I've had so many positive comments about the band and how awesome you all were.  Thanks also for giving our son Jack such a great experience in being a muso!!!  I've given him a guitar lesson this week already and he's had his keyboard out and pots and pans for drums!!!

    Birthday Party, Bay of Plenty
    Thanks for an awesome night on Saturday, your band was fantastic! and we would certainly be very keen to get you back for community functions if you are interested?

    P.S. Oh and also meant to say thanks for the new song you learnt, was better than the original, I would recommend keeping it on your song list, everyone raved about it, so thanks for that.
