Hi Marina,

The guitarist came to Presdales this morning and was absolutely fantastic - couldn't be better!

Thank you so much for finding someone at such short notice.

Paul, Deputy Head

Dear Marina/Alan
Thank you so much for a sterling performance at our Silver Wedding party on Sat night just gone!!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the set you put together, and thanks for taking the time to learn our special song, Old Devil!!
You certainly helped to make the evening the roaring success we felt it was, and the comments we received on the night, and afterwards, about your performance just reinforced that.
Thank you, thank you once again. We look forward to the next time.

Chris & Jenny.

Dear Marina and Alan
We just wanted to thank you for performing at our wedding at Frimley Hall. We had a brilliant time, the music was just how we wanted. All our guests were very complimentary about the whole day. We had a friend video the day and obviously on the day it all goes so quickly there are lots we didn't notice, but we are delighted he did the video even though we were opposed to it at the beginning. It got us very emotional watching the service and only when watching it did we really appreciate the music you played and the singing, it was really lovely and worked perfectly.
So, many, many thanks again and know that your music and singing has made a couple very happy.
Very best wishes,

Lesley and David

Our wedding at the Chequers Hotel was a tremendous day and our thanks go to Alan and Marina for a fantastic evening of musical entertainment. Everyone has commented about the quality of the band on the evening including the saxophone player.
We could not have made a better choice for our special day, thanks again.

50th birthday party 12/07
Score played excellently and everyone at the party loved the music. Liked that the saxophone player joined in on the dance floor with the crowd. I would hire them again. Fabulous singers.

Dear Marina,
We would like to thank Score Live Music for  the string quartet, disco, latin dancers, belly dancer, up lighters and red carpet provided. Everything was great. The belly dancer did a great job getting everyone excited and involved.
I am really pleased with everything that was provided.
Many thanks and kind regards,

Subject: RE: Ceremony singer 02/08/13
Hi Marina
We just wanted to say thank you for singing at our wedding. Even though we heard & saw you on the day there was so much to take in that it went over our heads a bit. However we have just started watching the video rushes of the wedding and were reminded of how lovely your singing was.
So a big thank you from us both.
Best wishes

Jocelyn & Matthew Hawkins

I thought the band were perfect. They were very friendly and  managed to get most people up dancing. Feedback from other members of staff :  'they didn't want it to end!'
Kind regards

Billy White, Chairman

Hi Marina and Alan,
Thank you for your fantastic performance at our wedding.  You really brought the party to life and were a fabulous end to what was one of the best days of our lives!  
As you could probably tell by the reaction of our guests - ties round heads and playing percussion with vigour (thanks for the tambourines etc., a great idea!) they loved it too!  
I hope you enjoyed playing for us and we couldn't say a bad word about SCORE!  We will definitely bear you in mind for the future.

Best wishes, Yin and David

Subject: Re: 60th Birthday Party
Hi Marina,
I so enjoyed last night even though I was very anxious beforehand.
You and Alan made the evening so special for me and I can't recommend you highly enough.  I loved it when people got up to dance and used the tambourines etc! I shall tell people about SCORE, including some of the friends that were there last night and hire team building companies!
All the very best, Sue Job

Hi Marina,
I just wanted to thank you for a great evening on Saturday at Queens Eyot. The DJ was fab! Everyone had a great time - thank you very much!!

Subject: Thank you for the music!
Dear Alan & Marina,
Just a note to say a huge thanks for playing at our wedding - and for your flexibility about the Greek music recording.
We found the provision of music and standard of performance to be spot-on. It was very impressive and guests commented on the quality of the live music and the fantastic choice to use tambourines, percussion instruments etc to get guests involved on the dance floor.
Very best wishes,
Pamela & Justin Knowles xx

Subject: Harpist
Dear Marina
Your lovely Harpist's performance at our daughter Maria and her husband Michael's Wedding on Friday 14th June was truly wonderful. Her choice of music set the right tone for the day, our grandchildren were enchanted and in fact, one granddaughter was inspired by the lovely sound.
It certainly made our day just that bit more special and she completed our day.
Very many thanks to you both,

Kind regards Wendy, Paul and all of the Lee family

“Project-managing the activation for the launch of the new on-demand service, NOW TV powered by Sky, was made 10 times easier by working with Score.

The week-long activation, held at the Bullring in Birmingham, called for a number of  variety acts, dancers, actors, and musicians for intermittent performances and 'flash mobs'. Score was the perfect one-stop-shop that not only sourced everyone perfectly on-brief within the few short weeks' notice I gave them, but they also managed all the liaising, rehearsals, and costumes. All the performers were of high calibre talent and very pleasant to deal with, leaving the clients and me delighted with the results.

Score was integral to the overall success of the activation and director, Marina Fratta, was particularly invaluable. Not only would I happily engage Score's services again, but it's near impossible to recommend them highly enough.”  

Tamara, Consultant Project Manager

....What can we say? You were absolutely fantastic, we just couldn't have wished for better...

Carl and Tracy

...The music at all times throughout the day was perfect, beautiful singing for the ceremony, excellent background during the meal and good lively fun for the evening!...

Sarah and Simon

...You persuaded some people to dance who have always refused in all the time that we have known them!...

Rob and Nicky

...Without exception everyone had a great time and we both agree that without doubt you really helped make the day the success it was...

Nigel and Suzanne

... Your music went down very well and made a great finish to what I think was a very successful evening. Sorry Cliff and I didn't do too much limbo dancing but we both have dodgy backs!...

The piper was excellent. He was sympathetic to our individual requirements, prompt, professional and very much what we were hoping for. He enhanced the evening and the experience of all those that attended and the feedback I have received has been all positive.
Thanks to you and a special thanks to him.

Hi Marina,
Please see the various comments re the magician from my colleagues below:
I thought he was brilliant, made each trick feel personal and mingled extremely well without getting in the way at any point. Loved him. Yeah he was great!
It was a great addition to our evening and made for a very fun atmosphere so thank you for providing such excellent entertainment.
Kind Regards,

McDonald Hotel - Disco 04/06/11
“The disco was also excellent - the dance floor was hardly ever empty - a sign of good music ! There was a wide range of ages from 1 year to 75 years old and the DJ played a good selection for all.  He arrived in plenty of time which gave me a chance to talk to him before the party started and I found him very presentable and polite.
Thank you for help with this booking - I would recommend your company again.”

Wedding Monkey Island Hotel, 11/06/11: Saxophonist & Duo

I will definitely recommend Score to my friends and family in the future.”
