-"Dear Steve & The Violet Jive,
A very big THANK YOU for your amazing playing at our wedding back in May. It was everything we hoped for and more. Our friends and family hit the dance floor straight away, were still going when the lights came on and are still raving about how awesome the music was! Thanks so much for taking on board all our ideas for the set list"
-Sal & Ed (Wedding).

-"Hi Steve, Just a note to say thank you so much for Friday night. Absolutely everyone thought you were a marvellous band, and all the guitarists in the room were very impressed! You will always come highly recommended by me. Hopefully I'll manage to get a crowd down to the Grey Lady Music Lounge to see you next time you're there. Thanks again"- Rachel (Birthday Party) .

-"Just a quick thanks to you and the band for a fantastic performance on Sunday! We were so happy with the music and the atmosphere - everybody said that you guys were great and had fun! We're very happy to recommend you to anyone :-)
Thanks again" -Alison + John Mclellan
