“The night was exactly what we wanted – low key and heaps of fun, with just a little bit of formality when required. Ty was fantastic – quite a few people made comment on how good he was. And he was a delight to deal with on the night. We had such good feedback. There were people dancing that I didn’t expect to see dancing, and I’m sure it was because they enjoyed Ty’s music. Here are some comments I’ve had since, from our guests:
“I thought I was listening to a Neil Diamond CD, and when I turned around, it was Ty. I was amazed.”
“The muso was so talented. He played such a good range, and lots of stuff people of our era know.”
“He was really good, he kept it down during the meal, and ramped it up for the dancing. Perfect.”
He was very professional and well presented. We’re glad we put the effort into finding the right one.”
