12th December 2009 at Roadford Lakeside Function Suite, Devon

We just wanted to thank you for your contribution to Ben and Helen's wedding on Saturday. Everyone has commented on the expert calling, mix of dances and sheer enjoyment you provided. The couple who played for the ceremony were also great.

We do hope we have the opportunity to maybe use you and certainly hear you again.

Best wishes to you all for a restful Christmas and Happy New Year

The full 6-piece SheerHopody Barn Dance Band played to eager dancers in the evening, after Colin Wilson and Helen Brayley had provided music on Guitar and Flute both during the ceremony and again in the afternoon.

Hi Trevor & Sheer Hopody,

I wanted to thank you for providing a wonderful evening for us for my 50th birthday in Bishopsteignton on the 3rd October. We really enjoyed your music and the dances were different to what we are used to, which made it more interesting and fun. l thought the caller was great.

My Mum said afterward that she can't remember enjoying a weekend so much for a long time, and you have made a convert to country dancing of my neice Eloise. I have passed your details on to a couple of friends who have events coming up.

Thanks again for making my birthday so memorable.

Best wishes

20th June 2009 at The Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon

A belated note to say how delighted we were with Sheer Hopody on the 20th. Martin was a wonderful caller with just the right light touch. The musicians were superb and I'm sure you could see how much fun we were all having. It really rounded off a wonderful day at the church and the reception. Please thank everyone in the band and Martin. You were just brilliant.

I would just like to say thanks for a fantastic evening last Thursday. Everybody really enjoyed themselves and were raving about it at work on the Friday. I would imagine that several future events are in the 'pipeline' as I have had several people asking me for details, which of course I have been very happy to provide.

Thanks again for making Lindsay's retirement 'do' such a success!!!

Can I say on behalf of both Devon Square Surgery and Kingsteignton Medical Practice how much we all enjoyed Saturday evening's barn dance. Your band were excellent and Martin is a great caller. The feedback we have had already from everyone who came has been glowing and highly enthusiastic. I have given your name to a number of people already. The church hall was an ideal location and size for our party and I can assure you that the sound we danced to was spot on.

Well done and Thank you very much indeed!

Best regards

We would like to thank Sheer Hopody for playing so brilliantly at our wedding. Everyone had such a great time - Sheer Hopody made the event extra fun and special for us. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band and caller. It was so professionally done and the musicianship was of a very high standard.

Best regards,

Many thanks for providing our team with a great evening on Thursday, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and all the people who didn't attend were regretting their decision on Friday when everyone was saying what a great time they had.

I have arranged a number of these summer events and have never seen quite so many people on the dance floor - and enthusiastic about doing so ...especially my dance partner (The Boss!!) who normally never ventures on! I believe this is a credit to all your band for great music and the wonderful enthusiasm and patience from the caller!!

Many Thanks Again

22nd November 2008 at Escot House, Ottery St Mary, Devon

Delia and I have just got back from our honeymoon and would both like to say a big thank you to the band. We were both very nervous about the big day but we enjoyed it more than we could have hoped. A lot of our friends come from around the country and many of them didn't know each other but they all joined in and the next day we received numerous compliments about the band. Thanks again to all of you for a fantastic evening and we will certainly be recommending you.

Kind regards

Thank you to you and the band for a fantastic evening on Saturday - everyone enjoyed it so much and especially the birthday girl.

If and when you get a CD out, please let me know, I am really keen to be able to listen again to your music and of course let others hear how good you are.

Thank you again so much and please convey our thanks to the other members.

With very best wishes
