St. Lawrence School Fair - June13th 2015

I just wanted to thank you all sooooo much for all you did last night- it was really appreciated.The whole eve was a great success-we dont have a final total yet but I will let you know as soon as I have a figure. I have rarely seen an audience erupt into the spontaneous applause when you all joined us for the first time -it was a fantastic response and Pandemonium should be very very proud indeed.

Concert with Chobham St. Lawrence Handbells - June 29th 2013

I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful bands for your delightful entertainment at Virginia's party. Virginia said it was just what she had wished for, and she was full of praise for you and all your players - how lovely that you all helped to make this come true for her. A memory that will always stay with us; such a lovely family and friends get together that Virginia was truly well enough to enjoy.

Nicky, you were amazing, performing in every set! You must have been exhausted, thank you so much for going to all that effort. I would like to give a personal message of thanks to each band too:

Pandemonium - as always, your playing was perfect! It made such a warm welcome for all the guests as they arrived, and set the whole Caribbean party atmosphere from the start. Although everyone seemed to be chattering away and not specifically listening to you, we heard lots of compliments about your playing. Those of us who know your repertoire really appreciated your learning new songs specially for the party, and we loved hearing our old favourites too - well done and thank you all!

Steelicious - it was the first time I'd heard you guys, and I was blown away! Everyone at the party loved the tunes, and watching you evidently enjoying yourselves as you played. Thank you so much for making this a really special occasion for my dear friend and all her guests. It was amazing!

Panache - oh such cool cowgirl hats! You looked fantastic and kept everyone royally entertained until the very end. Thank you so much for playing at Virginia's party and making it such a memorable occasion. All the guests thought you were marvellous, and you really made the Caribbean atmosphere come alive.

Private Party - Fetcham - February 24th 2013


Thanks for a brilliant evening. The bands were terrific and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Well done. I hope you managed to raise a good amount after all your hard work.

I really enjoyed myself last night - superbly organised event, well done - would love to hear how much it raised for CR.

You were all amazing and were the icing on the cake at the end of the day!
Thanks once again - you'll be highly recommended!!!

Frensham Ponds Sailing Club - Saturday 9th July 2011

Just a quick note to thank you all for a superb performance on Saturday. You kick started Marks birthday celebrations in such a special and memorable way, which was much appreciated by everyone.

The kids should be really proud of their professional performance.

40th Birthday Chessington - Saturday 18th June 2011

I hope you and your band are well. I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for coming along to our event on Saturday. I heard lots of brilliant comments about Pandemonium, and the event certainly would not have been the same without you there. I didn't realise how tired many of the cyclists would be after the first day (not being a cyclist myself), and Pandemonium were perfect in helping them all to unwind and relax.

I hope you all had an enjoyable afternoon, Asthma UKwere delighted to have you at our overnight stop.

Thank you once again for your support.

Asthma UK Beach to Beach Cycle Ride - Saturday 14th May 2011


Many thanks to you all for donating your time to come in on Saturday. It was a wonderfully uplifting performance.

The day raised more than I ever hoped - £2,300 - and I hope to get an official handover asap and some press coverage.

Your support was really appreciated.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the group for being so brilliant on my wedding day - everyone thought you were amazing. Sorry, I didn't get a chance to chat to you properly, but as you can imagine, I had quite a lot of mingling to do!

Ceylon Tea Party, Bookham - Sunday July 12th 2009


Please pass on our thanks to all those involved in both the Parade and your arena performances last Saturday.  The players were really good and there is no doubt that having the children and adults perform in the arena gives a lot of pleasure to young and old and is now very much part of Village Day. 

The steelpans in the Parade make such a difference to the event.

We hope that all of your children and parents who came enjoyed the afternoon and the Parade.

Thank you and Jon for your hard work in getting the job done!
