During the time Fresh Aire have been together we’ve played as a four piece, three piece and a duo. Mostly with our regular caller Ali but also with guest callers. We’ve played for beginners and folk dance clubs where the floor is full in seconds. We’ve played for events when the most difficult step to do is the one onto the dance floor. When we get comments they’re usually in the form of an email and we’re happy to say that they are usually positive.

Such a pleasure to have the brilliant Fresh Aire play at our wedding this weekend at Halsway Manor!

The music was really well balanced and not too loud! They are all fantastic musicians and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

March 2016 - Birthday Celebration
Just a quick note to say again how much we, and it would seem all of the party goers, enjoyed the party on Saturday. We all wanted to do it again the next morning and hopefully we can in the not too distant future! My sixtieth isn't for another six and a half years (thought I'd get that in) so we won't wait until then.
It was one of our best evenings we've all decided and while having a mix of ages is always an aim we definitely enjoyed having a lively group of " under thirties" who injected loads of energy into those of us who might need it these days! We loved it.

February 2016 - Fundraiser
What a wonderful evening. Thank you so much. Band, caller and atmosphere just brilliant! Thank you.

January 2016 Willand
On behalf of Willand Folk Dance Club I would like to extend our grateful thanks to Fresh Aire for playing such good music and making our dance on Saturday night so enjoyable, it was a good night with Eileen Nightingale calling a variety of dances. We were a little bit concerned as to how many would turn out as the weather was so bad, but it didn't seem to deter people, which was good.

January 2016 - Willand
I cannot praise the music of Fresh Aire more highly last night at Willand Folk Dance Club.  It was truly amazing and left Joe and I with a feeling that we had experienced the Dance of the Year (if not a life time).  Simply WOW! and thank you all for your amazing musicianship.  What an atmosphere!!!
Eileen Nightingale was also in fabulous form with varied and engaging dances (including a few unusual ones) which kept us dancing into the night enjoying a superb event.
My test for how good a dance evening is, is by how few times I look at the clock!!  But I didn’t look once last night.
A big thank you to the band for creating something very special last night.

January 2016 - Burns Night
Had a nice Mayoral “Thank You” card from the Mayor. She says she and Julian had a fabulous time and want to come again next year!

Just a line to say a big thank you for making our joint 60th birthday party so special. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening and commented on how fantastic the music was the dancing was great fun, it was just what we wanted.

June 2011 - Wedding
We’ve only just got around to printing off the photos of the wedding at Halsay Manor in June. We did a few extras for you and the other members of Fresh Aire because we know from experience that such photos rarely come into the hands of band members. They can be so useful for band archives and publicity purposes.

April 2011 - St Georges Day Celebration
Thank you Fresh Aire, for another brilliant evening. Everyone enjoyed themselves again. Silver Flame Rapper was a definite bonus. We will be recommending them and yourselves to the Friends of Konigsluter Twinning Committee as entertainment for the farewell evening on 10th August. We are pretty confident out German friends won’t have seen anything like it!

January 2011 - Burn's Night
Many thanks for what has been cited as one of our best Burn’s Night ever!  I was so pleased to see so many people packed onto the dance floor for your last set.
How on earth are we going to match that next year?

January 2011 - Birthday Party
Many thanks for your playing on Saturday night at my party. Please share my thanks with the rest of Fresh Aire also. We really enjoyed the music and dancing and your calling skills in a noisy crowd helped us all dance the night away. It was a very memorable occasion for me and I know you and Fresh Aire helped to make it a very happy one for all there.

Nobody liked us very much in 2010!

June 2009 - Birthday Barn Dance/Party
Thank you Fresh Aire for entertaining us and leading my barn dance so well. The music was fabulous and there were lots of praising comments going on about the band. It was a great celebration and thank you very much again.

August 2008 - Wedding
Just a little note to say thanks you very much for playing at our wedding on 28th August 2008. We really enjoyed the music along with the rest of our guests. One of our friends even said they didn’t realise they could have so much fun with lights on! This sums up our feeling of the evening. We hope you had a much fun as we did and look forward to booking you again.

August 2008 - Wedding
Can we want say a very big thank you to Linda, Graham, Eileen and Jim for our fantastic wedding ceilidh at the Bishops Palace on 2nd August. You were all wonderful and it was exactly the evening we wanted to have. We had such a fun time and so any of our guests said what a great time they’d had too – virtually everyone danced as far as we could tell…….. We can’t say enough how grateful we are to you all and what wonderful evening you all gave us – it really did contribute enormously to what was a perfect day.

June 2008 - Golden Wedding
On behalf of the whole family, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for helping make Saturday a very special evening for mum and dad.

Please express my grateful thanks to you and all the members of “Fresh Aire” for such a fantastic night at Henton Village Hall. Your caller did such a good job. Everyone had such fun We were talking about it for days.
