" Hi guys, just wanted to say thanks for playing an absolutely brilliant set at our wedding at Chateau Les Carrasses last month. With such a stunning venue it was a tough job for the entertainment to match it but you guys absolutely matched it and more . Almost all of our guests have mentioned you as the best wedding band ever. One of the best tributes I can give is that as typical British men, many of my friends arent dancers but you had them all up on the dance floor until dawn. My mum who is nearly was up and dancing and has told me how much she loved you guys. It was a pleasure dealing with all of you, thanks for making our wedding day even more special. Were already planning a return event. See you at Waynes Bar soon! "

" Hope this finds you all well. Now we have come down from the party and all the wedding stuff we have had chance to reflect how brilliant it all was! We both wanted to say how much we appreciated the way you guys handled the evening in all aspects, the friendliness and efficient way you dealt with the performance. It was a fantastic evening and you all played a vital part in that and we thank you very much for being exactly what we needed. We wish you great success and if you ever need us to act as a reference for you it would be our pleasure. "

We were watching some videos of it last night and the whole dance-floor were rocking out! You are all so talented and so nice! Thank you so so much for everything. We would love to have you over in our town of Buncrana some time! Think of this as your official invite, everyone here would love you too! Damien, thanks for all your correspondence and for the piano playing at the chapel, it was just perfect, thank you. We’ve quite a few photos of you all dancing away with us so if you have a Facebook page let me know and we’ll tag away! Thanks again. All hail Brightlights! "

" We can’t thank you enough for playing at our wedding. We had an amazing time and in large part due to you guys playing an amazing set of songs and keeping the crowd going. I haven’t spoken to Matt and Amy about the next few days in Nice but hopefully you all caught up again and managed to have a few drinks together. We will certainly try and drop by Nice and say hello in the near future. I know Andy mentioned you might try and play a few ski resorts for the winter. Please put us on your lists so we know where you are and can drop by and buy you all a few drinks and say g’day! Thanks again! Great / Amazing / Brilliant night!! If you ever need a reference please don’t hesitate to use us. "
