Dear Anna Can I once again thank you for a fantastic nights entertainment, everyone has been extremely complimentary with regards to the variation of your programme, the professionalism of your singing, and your lovely/bubbly personality. I think it's fair to say that everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. One or two hearts perhaps beat a little faster than they are used to, but that was a small price to pay!! With regards to a second booking... should either of those dates be O.K. I have been told to ask you if you could include a couple more classical songs in your act, once again opinion has been unanimous with regards to the sheer excellence of the those you did on Saturday. Once again Anna, thanks for a great night, I hope all goes well with you until we see you again, lots of bookings and lots of success.Brian Lindsay Social Chairman Chester le Street Golf Club

The Anna Reay Band were excellent, they were exactly what we had hoped for. One of the reasons we picked the band was their willingness to play some ceilidh tracks which was important to us as the wedding was 1/2 scottish! The rest of the tracks they played had the dancefloor filled and jumping for the rest of the night. They were even (far too) accommodating when my friend dragged me up to the mic to sing along with them, I'm sure they didn't enjoy that bit though!
