RE: Corporate Party for IDEO, Bimbos 365 Club, San Francisco
Dear Carla,

What can I say? You were truly amazing. People's jaws hit the ground
when we opened the doors at 8:30 and they came through to see your
brilliant group on stage and hear the era-specific music filling the

It was a pleasure to work with you and I can't thank you enough for
adding so much to the success of the evening! We've had many people say
it was the best IDEO party yet.

Thanks again,

Holiday Party, Pacific Union Club, San Francisco
Dear Carla,

We're looking forward to another terrific holiday dinner dance--
Three years in a row!  What a strong testament that is to the  
wonderful music the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra produces.
Our clients and their guests always enjoy your orchestra's  
style and sound. You all transform the party environment with
the nostalgic period songs you perform so authentically.  
From the stage set up and vintage clothes to the selection and  
arrangements of the songs--Glorious!

And then there's the delightful part of working with you!  As
an event planner I really appreciate the opportunity to have  
the kind of open and reliable communications, which you  
have provided over the years. Thank you.

We anticipate many memorable celebrations dancing to the music of RSJO!

Anniversary party, San Jose Country Club.
Hi Carla,

Just a note to say what a wonderful time everyone had at our party. The band was great and played all the songs requested. Everything was done in a professional way and the band had a nice appearance and of course played as well as they always do.

You were very easy to work with and thanks for making the evening a lot of fun. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Society Party, Biltmore Hotel, Santa Barbara
Dear Carla,

For twenty years my wife and I have loved listening and dancing to the great music and vocals of the RSJO. We have attended every year in Sacramento, the Mother of all Dixieland Festivals. With over 100 bands, the RSJO is ALWAYS one of the top five, and draws crowds accordingly.

Every three years we organize the "Just For The Hell Of It Dance Party," at the Four Seasons-Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara. As the name suggests, there is no purpose other than to have fun. This year will be the sixth time, and people rave about the RSJO, and these same people have attended every dance for fifteen years, and will be there for this year's event. The RSJO are remarkably consistent and seem to really enjoy themselves as well.

Anniversary party at Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon
Dear Carla,

Your music contributed so much to an unforgettable evening.  And I don't
say that casually.  Not only were guests expressing high praise at the
event, but several mentioned two days later that they had gone to so many
functions that were great, but when they were over they were over: but that
they kept thinking back on Friday evening and couldn't get it out of their
minds.  I keep thinking of it this way.

My son (34 years old and in a heavy metal group) said that he initially
thought the music was coming from CDs, was surprised to see a live
orchestra, and extremely impressed at the quality of voices and
musicianship of the group.

My only regret is that Donna and I didn't begin dancing earlier in the
evening.  It seems everyone waited for us to get out and begin dancing.  Oh

We've also played and very much enjoyed the CD you gave us.  Right in the

Thank you for a splendid performance.

Best regards,
