“I’m writing this letter on behalf of the Airport Commission to thank you and your group for the outstanding effort and performance during our Anniversary celebration. Thank you for the outstanding effort and performance. The orchestra is indeed the best steel orchestra I’ve personally heard, and I’ve lived in the Caribbean. May I say your entire group was courteous, polite and tidy. If there’s ever anything we can do to help promote your group or perhaps give you a resounding recommendation, please let me know. It was a pleasure to meet you all and to listen to a terrific group of musicians. BRAVO!!” —Parry Sound
