Dear Donna and Mark, We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for performing during our opening weekend - you really brought something special to our grand debut and we couldn't have done it without you!

Terri Hack - Executive Vice President and Managing Director    

Gail Vancans - Community Relations Director,

Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes


"Thank you so much for your presence at our 35th Anniversary celebration at the Interpretive Center!

As always the gracious gift of your time and talent is greatly appreciated. You are always such a delight

and pleasure to have at our events and you always provide such excelent entertainment for our guests!

"Thank you,you guys played great and added the "coolness" to our wedding!" 

Cynthia & Mitchell

"Mark, thank you so much for playing for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Everyone was asking me

how I found you! (needless to say, they were obviously impressed) I will definitly recommend you to

everyone I meet. Thank you for helping make our wedding a memory we will cherish forever."
Sincerely, Kimberly and Gerry

"It is hard for me to express the sincerity and depth of gratitude I feel at how perfectly

beautiful an evening you helped provide. I was swept away from the moment Samba Pa Ti

began on the cliffside, and truly have not come down yet.  The whole event, and the music

in particular, was literally a Dream Come True.  It's not often anyone really gets a chance to say that.  

My only regret is that I wasn't able to hang out and soak in every note.  And I got a little

tongue-tied trying, and knowing there is no way to truly thank you enough."

Chris & Karen

It was so great to go back and watch it in a relaxed state. We're very grateful to the Ledford's for referring

us to you. It was exactly what we wanted and added so much to our dream day. Thanks again and take care!"  

Kadidja & Thomas

"Donna and Mark , Thank you so much for coming to play at our wedding, and for listening to all our crazy ideas. Everyone was

very impressed (You even convinced Jessica's grandmother to stay longer beacause she liked your music so much!)

and we look forward to hearing you play again. "  

Bob & Jessica

"On behalf of the Lunada Bay Homeowners Associaton, I want to thank you for your participation in our annual

meeting an family picnic at Lunada Bay Park."

Ruth Shaffer, President

"Over the past three years I have had Donna and Mark play for several events at my restaurant as a

with their group. They arealways professional in their attitude and

performances. I would recommend this band to anyone who enjoys good jazz and blues music."

Slava Jimov, Owner of The Golden Lotus

"Mark and Donna and their bands have been an integral part of many of my weekend fairs and festivals.

They always have an exciting group of professional musicians who never disappoint me. On his own

or with his vast contacts of premier musicians, he can tailor the band to suit anyone's needs."
