     "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a brilliant performance last Saturday night. Wow! What a performance. I've had people calling me and thanking Hillside for such an enjoyable evening.
      Your repertoire was perfect with a combination of Broadway tunes, a flair of Las Vegas, and of course my absolute favorite Motown. The only disapointment to the evening - is when the evening had to end. I could have you sing all night long. My thanks again for a great performance.
      I hope to have you back again for future special events."
