RE: Trucks & Trailers Auckland Christmas Function 2016.

Dear Andre,

I would like to thank you for the great night of entertainment that you provided at our Auckland 2016 Christmas function.

You mingled well with the crowd to get to know them and gauge their level of humour that you then applied well. It was great to see you participate in the karaoke and also encourage others to do the same. The staff all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the humour that you provided.

I would have no hesitation in booking your services again or recommending you to others.

Kelly Henshaw
