Some comments from past performances

Just a short note of many, many thanks for such a fun night of GREAT music on Saturday night at River Bend!! I was thrilled to have you all at our first annual Tennis Ball, and the feedback from members has been overwhelming – Thanks to you!! Can’t wait for the next one!

Gary, I really enjoyed you the band's performance last night at the Rio. We will definitely come see you when you play the Washingtonian. In this bad economy, it is always great to take my wife for a cheap date at the Rio on a Saturday night and hear some live entertainment. Your Sax playing on Tequila was phenomenal. You did a flawless performance even while moving around a lot. I could almost not believe it was not a recording. I thought the keyboard playing and harmonies really stood out as well. Your Jimmy Buffett covers are some of the best IÕve heard. YouÕve got a good band, keep rocking. Scott Taylor, CPA Chief Financial Officer

"I can't even begin to tell you how many people told me how great you and your band were. Everyone just kept talking about you all. And thank you for letting my husband sing with you all. I know my son and daughter always get a kick seeing dad play and sing. Please thank everyone for us for doing such a great job, and making our son's night a wonderful night to remember! Hey, hopefully my daughter will marry in the future, if so I'll be looking for you!"

"Dear Gary (and the Groove),

I just wanted to say thank you so much for playing my wedding! It was the best night I have ever had, and your music was a huge part of that. Thank you for making it so much fun and getting so many people to dance. I have gotten so many compliments from all of the guests on your performance, and I wanted to make sure I passed those on, too.

I hope you and the band have a happy and prosperous new year. I hope not to have to get married again, but if I ever do, you'll be the first band I call.

Thank you again, so much!"
