Hi Doz,

 

We had a fantastic time thank you. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performances and many thanks for the last minute accommodation of first dance music. My 8 year old nephew was also extremely glad that he got his moment in the sun as DJ during one the breaks! Wasn't sure if that would work out logistically.

 

All the very best

Hi Doris - Many thanks for a fantastic night at Sea View on Saturday, Cheryl, Dan & I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sorry we did not see you to say goodbye before we left, but look forward to seeing you at Littlsea in June. You very kindly said to me to email you regarding any future gigs where you & Lee will be performing your own material, we look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards Paul, Cheryl (Rockley Park) & Dan

Thanks Doris,

Especially for letting me sing to my new wife. You and the boys performance went a long way  to making it a perfect day for us.

Dear The Bet Lynch Experience

 

I recently booked a holiday through Haven to tie in with the opportunity to see your band performing live. The weather may be awful at the moment here at Riviere Sands, but seeing a band of your calibre has put a real uplift on me and my girlfriend's holiday!

 

It was great to see you. A great performance!

Hi Doz

 

Apologies it has taken us so long to write this, it's taken a while to come down to earth after the wedding. Alan and I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you and the band for an amazing evening at Cripps Barn. The music was fantastic, it really made the night for us. We have had so many compliments about you guys, including from the staff at the venue, and we really cannot thank you enough. It was lovely to hear Jim sing a few numbers, I know his dad was really proud to see that. Everyone was up and dancing at some point which was so important to us. We really appreciated all the communication, the choice of music and the fact that you were there on time and set up etc.

 

We would highly recommend the Bet Lynch Project to anyone who asked. Please let us know if there are any websites or forums that you would like us to leave comments on.

hopefully see you soon, maybe at Jim's 50th??!!

 

 

Lots of love

Hi Doz,

 

I just wanted to say: Thank you so Much for doing such a great job at our wedding !

 

I have only heard compliments about your set. French people are not used to see a band at a wedding, but they were all under your charm.

I know they were not very lively when you tried to ask them to clap in their hands, etc, but that is a language barrier more than anything else.

 

Many people were dancing which is great. I loved the Greek style song and the last one you did with the both of us in the middle.

 

We will remember this day forever and I am really pleased (and proud) that you were the band playing at our wedding.

 

Many Thanks Again,

 

Take care of yourself and Good Luck with everything.

 

Julien

 

PS: Let us know where and when we can buy your CD (as I forgot to ask you on that day, too many things were going on).

Hi Doz

 

PARTY AT STANWAY 05.06.10

 

You were fantastic!

 

Thank you all very much for your brilliant performance on Saturday.

 

Our friends have given nothing but compliments about the music you played for Gill and myself on Saturday night. The dance floor was continually busy with people enjoying themselves and partying!

I have had several comments from friends that this was the best party they had ever been to, the energy you all had was amazing and the song choice perfect with young and old all enjoying the music together.

Gill also enjoyed the bit at the end where you asked everyone to form a circle and we had to dance together in the middle.

 

Altogether a brilliant night, which went better than we could ever have dreamed.

Thank goodness we saw you in Torquay that night almost three years ago, and didn't lose the card!

 

We would definatley recommend you to friends and would, without any doubt, ask you to play for us again.

All the best for the future and your new album, we will keep a look out for it. (Look forward to seeing you at the Hole in the Wall)

 

Can you please pass this message on to the rest of the band.

 

Many Thanks

 

Love Clive & Gill Spencer

Doz and the guys,

 

Well, what can I say! We thought you were amazing. If you could have played longer we'd have all been there until the sun came up. You all made our day very very special indeed and something we will never forget. Thanks ever so much for all the hard work and effort that was put it. You were punctual, polite, a pleasure to talk to and of course the music was fantastic. I had a tear in my eye when you got all the guests dancing around us when you played Daydream Believer. We've been getting non-stop emails and texts from all our friends saying how brilliant you were.

 

Ali's sister is already planning her 40th birthday party (in 4 years time!!) so she can book you to play!! I may have to think of an excuse for another party and beat her to it. I hope you all had a fun time to and everyone was looking after you. Sorry it took so long for us to finish dinner, we lost track of time and didn't realise how late it was getting.

 

Hope you liked the cake!

 

Would we be able to ask a small favour? If you have them recorded, would you be able to burn us a CD of the play list from the night so we can keep it as a souvenir. Just let me know if any cost is involved and I'll sort you out.

 

Thanks again and hope to see you all again soon.

Dear Doz,

 

I would like to thank you and the other members of the band for a fantastic time we all had at our dinner and dance on Saturday. The Bet Lynch Experience really made our evening a success, with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves, dancing the night away!!!

The next morning there was rugby training, and I was approached by so many people who thought the band was absolutely outstanding. I know you are taking a year off, but we should very much like to book you again in the future.

 

Best wishes,

 

Rebecca

Hey Doz!!!

 

I am so sorry for not getting touch sooner. I wanted to say a HUGE THANKS for a fantastic night, the best ever. You and the boys were so fantastic everyone couldn't get off the dance floor. Needless to say you were the talk of all friends and relatives the next day and ever since!! One of my Dad's extended family is hoping his daughter will have you for her wedding in 2010! I think you could tell by all the happy people that we had a great time.

 

Thanks again, it was really special for us both.

Hi Doz,

Dear Doz

 

Just a short email to thank you very much for providing the evening music at Lindsay and Philip's wedding on 22nd August.  Everyone enjoyed the day so much and live music of the quality you and your band entertained us with completed a fantastic and memorable evening.  Many guests commented on how good your performance was.   It was a pleasure to meet you and we wish you all continued success for the future.

 

With our very best wishes

Dear Doz,

Thank you so very much for singing and playing so brilliantly at our wedding party.

Your participation helped to make the whole evening memorable for everyone. Many of our guests said that they had never seen their husbands/partners dancing so much, and the floor was always so crowded that some people were dancing on the matting too just for fun of being part of it all. The special things you did like getting the ‘girls’ on stage singing and having everyone link arms and dance around Richard & I were wonderfully inclusive and perfect for such a ‘family’ occasion.

Many of our guests commented in their ‘thankyou’s’ on what a wonderfully warm and friendly atmosphere there was and how everyone chatted and danced with everyone else, and much of the creation of this atmosphere was down to you and your band members. Please thank them all from Richard and I. They also said they thought the band this year was even better than for the Centenary Ball last year, but they all loved you last year so I think that just goes to prove how adaptable and versatile you are to different occasions.

My son Matthew tells me that you are all taking a year off next year. I hope you are going to be doing something exciting and different and resting a bit, as having a musician son in the family I know how exhausting the travelling up and down the country for gigs can be. Please email me when you are back in action again, as we would love the opportunity to use you again should the chance arise, and would love to know how you get on in the future anyway.

Very sincerely, Val Evans

More like Thank you!!!!!

 

Everybody thought you were brilliant. We had a great time, had a party the next day too.

 

We nearly postponed the wedding when my nan died, I was so close to her and it was quite sudden so I went a bit mental for a while to say the least! I think she sent the sunshine for us though!

 

Off on honeymoon today. Will come and watch you play as soon as we can and bring all the wedding guests with us aswell!

 

Take care,

Alex and I wanted to say a really big thank you for playing at our wedding on 14th June. You were absolutely fantastic and everyone was loving the music. Thank you for being flexible with our first dance and the sets, we really appreciated it. And a special thank you from one of our friends who said you were lovely when she feeling upset.

Well done for a fantastic gig

Many thanks

Hi,

 

Can you please extend the thanks of Laura and David to The Bet Lynch

Experience for a wonderful evening on Saturday at Maida Vale.

 

The band was utterly professional and really friendly.  They delivered

exactly the sort of party we wanted and we received so many positive

comments about them from our guests.

 

Many thanks,

Hi Doz,

 

Sorry it's taken us ages, but we just wanted to say a massive thanks to you and the guys for making our wedding reception a great party!  You're all excellent musicians, everyone really enjoyed themselves (even the hotel staff were dancing around!)  and your set list was perfect, especially the impromptu Nirvana number towards the end of the night which brought the house down.  We're sure everyone will remember our wedding reception as being the party of the year and we'd certainly recommend you to anyone wanting more than just a standard wedding band.

 

If there's somewhere on your site where we can leave feedback, then let us know, otherwise feel free to use this email as testimonial.

 

Many thanks and regards

Hi Doz and all,

 

What can we say?? Thank you so much for contributing to an unforgettable day

all loved you too! You made the evening reception so special, we truly loved

it! You better be prepared for lots more weddings in the years to come!!

 

Just off to Heathrow for honeymoon - Malaysia here we come!!

Dear Doz and the Band,

 

Thankyou  so much for the brilliant job you did at the BSC Centenary Ball. You really helped make the event the huge success we all wanted it to be.

 

As you saw, from the very first number the dance floor was packed- not always the case- and it stayed that way right to the end of you second set. You really got the crowd involved and I felt they'd have kept going for hours

more if you could have gone on.

 

I'm delighted to say that I've already had an email from a fellow Ball Committee member asking for your details as several people have enquired about booking you in the future, and I've passed Function Junction's details

onto them.

 

The Bosham Ball is held every two years- whether I'll be involved next time I don't know, but If I am I'll strongly suggest that we book you again, although such was the impression you made that I would hope that will be the

case anyway.

 

Also on a personal level your helpful and friendly attitude was much appreciated, and thanks for the email you sent when you got back.

 

Finally, I hope you all enjoy your week off- a rare event for you I know- and that a week without travelling in the van helps your back to recover!

 

Do forward this to the other band members, and I hope to see you all again sometime.

 

Best Wishes

Matt Somerton-Rayner

Dear Dos & Band Members,

Thank you guys for bringing fantastic music to our wedding. So many guests are still raving about how great you were.

Thanks also for helping my dad out with his song – he will be forever grateful!

All the best for your future – we hope you get more bookings at Phyllis too!

Lots of love & gratitude, Sarah & Saul

October 14th 2006, Ashdown Park, Sussex

An amazing day, followed by a truly fantastic evening, suitably enhanced by Bett Lynch, who truly were a fabulous experience, they certainly lived up to my (high!) expectations!

I reviewed samples of countless bands before I was lucky enough to be sent a link to this band, who I knew instantly were the band we were looking for!

Technically spot on, fun, zany and great performers, they really got the party going and everyone up dancing all night long!

We've had countless comments from all our guests regarding how much they enjoyed the band, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

 

So once again thank you so much for making such a special day even more memorable!!

The band were fantastic they fitted in with the atmosphere of the wedding perfectly. The dance floor was full the whole time they were playing until the early hours. Everyone commented on how good they were and one of my ushers is having them for his wedding after seeing/hearing them at the wedding. The last half hour 'rock requests/demands' was awesome thank you.

Doz,

 

Thank you very much for the email, apologies for the delay in getting back to you - but we've been honeymooning. You were absolutely great - in particular with the 3rd and final set. We've had many glowing comments from our friends and relatives about how how good you were.

 

We had a fantastic day - so thanks to all the band for contributing to the celebration.

 

Our friend Sean has yet to stop talking about the time he was invited on stage by a "real" band to sing with them (I promise this won't happen again). See attached photos.

 

Once again many thanks - we'll see you at the Redback soon.

Dear Doz,

I wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for making Selena & Henry’s wedding last Saturday such a fun occasion. We’ve had many kind comments about your band. You really created a great atmosphere & you are a very talented bunch.

I’ve your name to a friend of a friend whose daughter is soon to be married & they will doubtless be in touch with you, and I know if Selena, Henry or I are asked to recommend a band we will be highly recommending you.

Thank you again for making such a happy occasion really great.

Best wishes, Zena Gibbs (mother of Selena)

3rd Sept 2005 Millennium Hall, Horton-Cum Studely, Oxon

 

Dear Doz,

Thank you so much for making our wedding such a blast last weekend, you were all absolutely brilliant. We lost count how many people asked us where we found you & how fantastic you all were.

From the minute you kicked off with our first dance & Hot Stuff, it was a job to get off the dance floor. As the bride & groom, we felt we should be mingling with the older guests & talking, but you kept belting out one brilliant song after the other.

It was fantastic when the bride & the bridesmaids got a piece of the limelight and we sang Mustang Sally with you.

In essence, you got everyone on a complete high & kept us there all evening.

Will you come back & play for our 40th Birthday Party in a few year’s time do you think?

Thank you so much for being the icing on the cake & making our day so perfect.

Best wishes, Selena & Henry Coleman

Thank you again. Lots of love, Anne & Richard

Dear Doz & the Band,

A huge thank you for a wonderful evening’s entertainment on our wedding.

Everybody is raving about what a superb band you are and people have commented on how cool the Jimi Hendrix/George Clinton look-alike is!

Thank you for being so accommodating throughout the planning stage, it was really lovely to have someone so organised but yet fun to do our music.

I’m sure we will be seeing you again.

Lots of love, Michael & Lara (Tarbard)
