Hello Tony

Great show on Friday 10 June at Bureta Park. The best we have been to in a long while. We went to the Roy Orbison show by Eddie Low many years ago at Baycourt but although Eddie was good - just listening to Roy Orbison all night was a bit much. Your show has variety which keeps a fresh edge as the night rolls on and the performers and their characters change. We are definitely going to your next show at Bureta Park in September as Che Orton will be a nice extra. We watched "Stars in Their Eyes" on TV and enjoyed it all including your performance - very polished. A real shame they canned this show and "Dancing With the Stars". These were about the only things we watched and it was rather disappointing - especially as we had just got into dancing at the time it finished. I learnt something about the history and appearance of some of the stars who performed many of the songs that have been a part of our lives.

We met yourself when leaving on Friday night. A nice touch to make yourself available like this and say goodbye as people left.

Thanks for the great night.

PS Liked the catch in your voice as you started "Rave On" Just like Buddy Holly on the record.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for entertaining the clients today. The clients
had an amazing time; you brought laughter and happiness to the clients. You put smiles on
people’s faces and managed to put them all at ease, with your wonderful personality.

As staff members experiencing your performance, we saw the clients participate by clapping their
hands if they could, or tapping their feet .Many of the clients commented on what a wonderful
day they had, and this is Thanks to you for sharing your wonderful talent with us here at Stewart
Rehabilitation services. As you know some of the clients do not always have the opportunities to
experience entertainers like yourself. So for you to come and entertain them was a real treat.

Many thanks from us all at Stewart Rehabilitation services.

Dear Tony

Thank you so much for choosing Tauranga RDA to be the recipients of funds raised at the three Night of the Stars events that you organized both last weekend and earlier this year. We were absolutely overwhelmed with the support that we received.

A number of our volunteers and families of riders attended the events and said that they had an absolute ball. They said that the quality of the performances was of an extremely high standard and that the atmosphere was very friendly and relaxing. One said that she’d had ‘the time of her life’.

I would like to congratulate you on being able to organize and perform in such a high quality show that is obviously a night that is enjoyed by all who attend.

I would like to invite you to drop by and see our indoor arena project in progress and also to watch some of our riders in action and meet our horses, staff and some of the volunteers.

We will also send you an invitation to the official grand opening of the indoor arena facility which we plan to hold in early February.

Thanks once again for your support and kindness.

Kindest regards

.Hi Tony

Well, what can I say.....  You fronted an evening to remember and for many of our members, Friday night was the highlight of the entertainment, due in no small way to your awesome brackets.  Your kids are delightful and everyone loved their contribution.

You know, you really don't have to impersonate Roy Orbison or the others as you are a very polished performer on your own, although Roy and Buddy certainly went down very very well.

So Tony....a huge accolade to you for giving us a wonderful evening of nostalgia with all the songs we grew up with and something the members will remember and talk about for a long time.

I'm sure your bookings will continue to grow and all the very best from us all for your future.  You are a star.

Very kind regards
