If I can quote Molly Meldrum, “Do yourself a favour” go out and book Ella’s Holiday for your next night out. My brother & I recently had our 60th birthday & had Louise & the band play. Brilliant! just doesn’t seem enough to describe the way they set the mood, had people up dancing & really pulled the night together for us. This is the second time we’ve had Ella’s Holiday play for us, the first was at my wedding, what a wonderful night, so it was an easy choice to get them back again for our birthday. Thanks Louise "

Hi Louise and Stew, 

A note to thank you both, Lou and Stew, for providing such wonderful music and singing us through the night.  Your flexibility and ability to gauge the mood of the room created a great atmosphere. Some who hadn’t danced in quite a while took to the dance floor for a whirl! The event could not have been the success it was without your efforts in creating the wonderful atmosphere 

Thank you both so much.

Kind regards, 

Diana and Richard

Hey Dave 
Thanks for a great night on Saturday for the Bowral Rugby Club. 
Can you pass on our thanks to all the band for a cracking night. 
Lots of great feedback. 
Definitely helps when the band are so good, it makes the night even better than just a catch up. 
Nothing better than seeing a full dance floor till the end. 
all the best ,Chris
