"Thank you so much for playing at Sophia's bat mitzva party on Sunday. We can't tell you how much we enjoyed the evening, in no small part due to your fabulous music. Our guests were so impressed by your sound, your professionalism, your look, your musicianship and your very obvious passion for what you do so well. So many of our guests wanted to know who you were and how we found you! Our family will always treasure the memory of Sophia's bat mitzva and we're so grateful to the Matzoh Boys for making it so special."
With our very best wishes, Michal and Jeremy
"Dear Jake, Peter and The Matzoh Boys (and Girls!),
We wanted to say thank you so much for the absolutely amazing job you did on Sunday.
The music during the ceremony was beautiful and spiritual and it was also wonderful to have a fusion of Sephardi and Ashkenazi musical themes.
Im Eshkachech Yerushalayim was a particularly special moment for us.
Everyone said how moving this was and it is something we will remember forever.
For the Israeli dancing you really judged the atmosphere perfectly and we had various Jewish people telling us that it was the most enjoyable Israeli dancing they have ever done.
We even had a non-Jewish friend say he wanted to convert in order to do more of it!
The first dance was really lovely, and we loved how the older guests were able to enjoy songs that they knew,
but we were also really impressed by the addition of your own personalities and unique style.
The atmosphere stayed strong, and even built up towards the end, thanks to the perfectly judged song selection as well as fantastic input from all of your lead singers.
We were so impressed throughout the day with your ability to judge and react to the mood in the room.
It was also really fantastic how you added in the house and dance tracks for the final part of the set,
and the jazz trumpet playing over the top was exactly what we had hoped for."
Very best wishes, Joanne and Jacob Turner
"I write to thank you and the whole band so very much for playing at our wedding.
It really was the evening of our lives,
and one of the highlights for me was your performance and the dancing it instigated.
Your music before dinner comprehensively broke the ice and, from that point onwards, the atmosphere of joy and affection was set.
We have lost count of the number of people who said how much they loved it,
and for a good number of those it was their first experience of a Jewish wedding and they dived in and embraced it.
You were so very right in your early advice and confidence that people would not be hesitant to join in.
I am very grateful to you for your patience and conscientiousness in the preparation for the night;
it really was a pleasure to deal with you and the whole experience was enormously enjoyable."
With kind regards, and very many thanks, Nick and Rebecca
"You absolutely rocked it and made a huge contribution to an amazing night.
Thanks for taking on all our suggestions and making it the perfect party.
The ceremony was lovely, the klezmer dancing worked to a tee, the
ska reggae set was fantastic and then you totally rocked it home.
You got the love was a special moment that we will never forget and
you were definitely right about the Latin track at the end.
Everyone had a brilliant time and the dance floor was heaving from
beginning to end which was just what we wanted.
Thanks again. Really good to have met you and hope to see you again.
A couple of people were asking for your contact details."
Thank you thank you, Jes and Bridget

Best wishes, Frances and Justin
"I just wanted to thank you and the band for last Friday night at Bush Hall.
I had a fantastic party and everyone I spoke to absolutely loved the band and in particular the lead singer.
You made it a really wonderful occasion and and all my friends and family have been full of compliments on your performance.
You were all worth every penny and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.
Once again my grateful thanks for helping us all celebrate in such style."
With best wishes, Emma
"I just wanted to thank you and the band for such an amazing performance yesterday - the music and tradition was such an important part of the day and you helped make it! We had loads of people come up to us and comment on how beautiful and atmospheric the music was during the service, and also how much they enjoyed the israeli dancing of which the band was such an important part."
Thanks again, Jess and Rich

You were absolutely fantastic and all our guests commented on how brilliant you were. You were exactly what we were looking for for our big day and we can't thank you enough for creating such a fab atmosphere and a great party.
If any potential clients need a reference, we'd be more than happy to provide one!!"
Thanks again! Paula and Steve
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your wonderful playing,
both at the synagogue and at Claridges.
The music at the synagogue really helped to kick off the day and gave a brilliant atmosphere in the room,
and at Claridges we both had so much fun dancing away to the Hora set, it was just perfect.
We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends and family if a Jewish band is needed!"
Thanks again and very best wishes, Izzy and Matthew

"Dear Jake, Peter and the rest of the Matzoh Crew
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing such a vital part in making our wedding the truly fantastic experience that it was!
I've lost count of all the people (several of them professional musicians) who've spontaneously praised your performances from the lead-up to the ceremony through to the very last song of the night.
You were outstanding and we're going to warmly recommend you to anyone we know."
All the best, Nadia and Bard

"Dear Matzoh Boys, just a short note to thank all of you for the great music at Amy & Alex's wedding. You caught & created the mood wonderfully with a great choice of Israeli and other music. We all had a fantastic time and know that you were the heart beat of our simcha."
With warmest regards, Zoe and Peter
"Just wanted to say thanks again - you were fantastic on Saturday and were the perfect finale to a wonderful evening! Layla and I loved the music and we received so many favourable comments about you from our guests - everybody, dancers and non-dancers alike, thought you were great.
Also, I hope you saw that your playing was so amazing that you even prompted complete strangers, innocently passing by in the street outside, to spontaneously burst into dance! Our friend spotted said dancer in the moonlight through the window and went outside to invite him in: after being twirled around the road a few times, she found out that he was a visitor form New York. Although he was too polite to gatecrash our party he asked her to pass on his compliments on your playing.
I would like to lavish you with praise but I can't compete - I can think of no higher compliment than passers by stopping in their tracks to dance in the street!"
Many thanks, Patrick and Layla
"Dear Matzoh Boys, I didn't have a chance to thank you on Sunday but you did a wonderful job! The music for the Chuppa and the Reception was perfect and enjoyed by all. It was a truly wonderful celebration. Many thanks for helping to make it such a special wedding. I hope I'll get the chance to hear you again soon."
Best wishes, Judy
"Thanks so much for a really fun Sunday afternoon. We all had a great time, the music was fantastic (and all the neighbours thought so too :) ). It was also a lovely opportunity for the girls to get to play their instruments."
Thanks once again, kind regards, Annette
"You were all really good and everyone is phoning me to say how much they enjoyed the party - food, venue and band.
Viva Espana was a great success.
Thanks and I will suggest you to any relatives or friends.
Thank you for making my birthday a very very happy occasion."
Best wishes, Marilyn
"The Matzoh Boys hit the perfect note.
The music transcended the generations and kept everyone on their feet all night. The Matzoh Boys are a fantastic simcha band.
Thank you again, you guys helped make our wedding what we wanted it to be."
Matthew & Paula
"Jake, Peter and all the Matzoh Boys and Girls
We wanted to thank you for the fantastic music and the great job you did at our wedding.
Everyone has commented how much they enjoyed it and how brilliant you were and the great music,
not only the klezmer (which many said was a lovely and different touch), but also the Latin and jazz:
it was refreshing to mix the classics with something different, funky and, well, just brilliant!
Thank you also for all your help in preparing our day - you were patient beyond words.
We and all our guests had an amazing time thanks to you all and we will all be spreading the good word.
Thank you all again"
Zara and Dan

Well done and thank you."

We all thought you were fantastic and really helped make the party so very special for everyone.

We've just returned from honeymoon and really wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed the music at the wedding. Lots of people commented on how much fun the dancing was, and we loved the after dinner set that you did.
Many thanks also for being so flexible, it all feels like a haze now but you were really accommodating!
Hope you enjoyed it, many thanks again"

"From our first enquiry through to the Matzoh Boys playing at our event, the service we received was second to none. Thank you for making our party so memorable, you were great!"
"Thank you and the boys for an amazing performance at our wedding.
You really were beyond superb, received many compliments (I think this manifested itself in the fact that you gave out all the contact cards you had) and helped contribute in making it the most amazing day we've ever had.
Our friends and family have not stopped talking about the wedding, and we wouldn't have changed a thing.
I hope you enjoyed playing as much as we enjoyed having you there."
