Rom,
We thought the party Saturday night was a big success, and Moodafaruka played a large part in that. The band did a great job, and our 4 year old granddaughter was worn out afterwards. We want you to know that we received many compliments about the band. Everyone loved the music. Thank you again for being a part of our celebration.

Thank you so much for everything! I wasn't there but have heard RAVE reviews on how fabulous the band was and we definitely want to do a repeat for our next open house.
Will be in touch.

Thanks,

I love your music. It is sensational, enchanting and moving.

Hi Rom,
Thank you guys for making sweet music for our party. And my wife Barbara and I enjoyed talking to you before the show. Your people were great players and very nice folks.
Thanks for the two CDs! You thought I should listen to one before the other, but I cannot remember the order. Can you give me that order again.

Our Best,
George & Barbara Summers

Thanks for the great show yesterday. Just wish I had fewer guest so I could have enjoyed it more.

My very best,

Dear Rom,
Thank you and everyone in the band for making our party a smashing success. The music was absolutely wonderful! We loved the light show in the tree. You guys are terrific ( both as musicians and as people). A number of friends asked about your group for future events.

Sending you all a group hug,

NACE Wedding Trends 2015

Hi Rom,
I want to thank you for playing for the NACE Wedding Trends 2015 event last night at the J.W. Marriott. I could have not been prouder. I received so many compliments on your band. Your Trio was amazing and the music was perfect. We did have a crowd. Almost 300 people attended. One of my Country Club Clients told me last night that she had to book you for an event, that you were fabulous!! Thanks again for your awesome band and for representing Adams & Green Entertainment.

Thanks again! It's always to hear and see you all!

Thank You!
There were so many compliments! You sounded fabulous. Stella, the catering director from Pine Forest got up and danced to one of your songs!!! I've never seen her do that before. The even planner that hired you for Nov. said she is so excited that you were awesome!!
Thank you thank you!!!

Delores - Adams and Green Entertainment

Hi Rom,
I just wanted to thank you again for tonight! You guys are awesome! I also wanted to thank you for letting us use your mikes – especially when it wasn’t on the agenda! J Everyone loved you (I know you are used to that!) and you made our event a real success! It was great meeting you all and I look forward to working with you again in the future. I will check your website for dates that we can come and see you again very soon.
Thank you!!!

Ginger Moon, Houston Zoo

Rom,
I've given our folks who arrange events my recommendation for your group for any corporate or executive events. I had the chance to hear your team at a tennis charity event a few months ago, went online and bought music as it was fantastic! The young lady that plays the guitar has a certain charm that comes across, the percussion was perfect in balance and the overall spirit lively and entertaining.
Keep up the good work!

Lloyd Boyd, Vice President, CIO - Friedkin Services Group

Dear Moodafaruka,
I've been meaning to write to you for a while, so here goes, I really want to tell you how much I've enjoyed your music over the years and thank you for all the money I've saved on anti-depressants . To listen to your music I can't help but feel good. It's better than Prozac , and without the unwanted side effects ( like your head spinning around like Reagen in the exorcist) . Once again thank you , you guys and gals are just too much fun!

Randy Fielder

Thank you again for performing at our wedding on July 8th... it was perfection!!! :-)
We look forward to seeing you perform in the near future.

All our best,
Adrian & Lisa, Richmond, TX

Hi Rom,
You and your group were mind blowing. You exceeded our expectations.
Thanks for making our event unforgettable.

Dr Banker

I wanted to tell you how much everyone enjoyed the music. I have never received a compliment of the music before so that is a kudo for you. I just wanted you to know that.

Diana Midyett,
Meetings and Conventions Coordinator, Teva Animal Health

Hello from snowy and cold NJ! I returned after a visit to AZ and seeing you at the Carefree Art and Wine Festival. Wow... you are terrific! I have your CD on now and it brings me back to the sun and blue sky and your friendly smiling faces. Anti road rage music, remember? ha. Keep playing that beautiful music and I hope to see you again!

Sue McAllister

I just returned from my honeymoon and wanted to take a moment and thank you for the wonderful performance during my pre-wedding and post-wedding reception. The music and the dancers were great. I have received soooo many compliments, most especially about the entertainment. One group of friends had remarked “Where on Earth did Sherry find that band?!?!”. Everyone was really happy with the CD’s too and could not wait to play them at home, in the office or in the car.
All in all it was a great time.
If you ever need a reference, you can use me.

Dear Rom,
Thank you for a great performance. Just as the first time, your band was punctual and professional. We appreciate that you made special accommodation for Chuck, the comedian and our nephews to perform.
All of our guests cannot stop talking about your performance afterward and said that you are a wonderful addition to the event.
Your professionalism and performance definitely exceeded our expectation. You definitely underpromised and overdelivered. Thank you and please let us know when you have your new CD. We would love to purchase a few for our friends and family for Christmas. Of course, no pressure of you coming out with one before the holidays.

Sincerely,
Tammy Tran-Nguyen

Rom,
I appreciate you sooo much!!! I was thrilled that you and the group were able to play and you all made it so special for Craig's big 50! As always...we had rave reviews on the band and you made my night! It is wonderful to have such confidence in friends and I thank you.
I'm already dreaming of the next shin dig and always want you part of my life.

Mary Jo

Hey Rom,
I was just thinking about Moodafaruka ! You were outstanding ...words cannot express how pleased everyone was with your performance and I was thrilled to find a band that was not only wonderful, but so accommodating and flexible. That's rare ! People in my group who I don't really know well have stopped me in the hallways and raved about the entire evening, including your music. I've only been with Hess for 5 months and you've given me a great reputation ! Several people commented on you in particular for the solo guitar work during Oksana's solo. I agree - Wow !
You will stay on the top of my list for bands and I would not even blink to recommend you to others.
Thanks for your note and for being terrific ! Love, love your music ...

Therese
P.S. You rock!

Hi Rom,
I have received nothing but positive feedback regarding our event at the Hilton Tuesday night. It was a pleasure meeting you and listening to your awesome music. I went on Youtube to hear the whole band and I was blown away. Thanks again for sharing your talent with us. Take care.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards,
Christine Becker Anderson, CMP, Siemens Energy, Inc

Had a great afternoon listening & dancing to some great music this afternoon in Sugarland, TX. Thanks again for the CD! We will enjoy listening to that music every chance we get.
Our compliments to you and your band for a great performance!

Sincerely, Joe R. Dominguez, FIC

Absolutely love you guys! I've seen your full piece band and your trio and you never disappoint! THANK YOU!!

Rachel Loil

Hi Rom!
Just a quick note to say you guys were great Fri night @ Sullivans-my friends are now your fans! (and thanks for putting us on your list.)

Best Regards, Jim

A friend referred me to your website to check you guys out. I have to admit that I was kind of hesitant at first but once I checked it out, I could not believe that such talent was so close by and that you guys are more on an international level. Look forward to hearing you live for the first time this Friday

Jaime R. Olguin

Rom,
Thank you for a fabulous evening last Friday. Really appreciate you letting Rebekah and I in. We had a great time. The group I brought with me are raving about the band. They can't wait for you next performance. Keep me updated on where and when. We'll be there. I really appreciate our friendship Rom. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Blessings, Hector

Love love LOVE your music!

Julia Johnson

I'd never heard of Moodafaruka until I heard you play at lunchtime in the Allen Center Foodcourt, sponsored by Salata. Absolutely mesmerizing! I was the guy who stopped by & did not want to go back to work.

Callen Pasak

Hi Rom,
Just wanted to say thanks for the performance last weekend – it went really well. It was great to see all of those interesting instruments and hearing the combination of sounds from all of you – world fusion, right?

Thanks again. Best,
Kris Bergquist, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

I went to see your band at Sullivan's last Friday and enjoyed very much. My boyfriend saw you for the first time and now he is a fan! Looking forward to the next time!

Flor Hoffman

That was such a marvelous performance last night! You all bring so much joy to so many people. We all need it! You are such a refreshment!
THANK YOU!!!
GOD BLESS YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS AND ALL THE OTHER GOOD STUFF!

Nancy Anderson

I love your band and I want to be kept in the loop of all things incredible you do

Mustapha Bouaici

Hi Rom,
Thanks for an outstanding performance at our Convocation yesterday!
As you could tell, when we in our workplace, we are not nearly as expressive and responsive to your music as when “clubbing”, but I’m sure you knew that already. I hope otherwise that you and your band enjoyed the visit here.
FWIW: I heard many, many very positive comments from attendees, including some who never have anything good to say about anything, so kudoos to Moodafaruka!!
Although I have nothing to say about what will happen next year, I think my successor, Dr. Lance Pagliaro, will be extremely hard pressed to come up with any better choice for our entertainment!
See you at Capone’s soon and Happy Thanksgiving!

Jim Klostergaard MD Anderson

Been listening for a couple years now. 1st time I heard you play was at the Galleria mall and bought 2 cds. Everyone I show your music to loves it! Just got another cd today at Discovery Green. Thanks

Shane Martinez

I had the pleasure of listening to your Unbelievable, Mesmerizing talents @ Sugarland Town Square. You BLEW ME AWAY!!!
Kudos for touching my soul!! I bought one of each CD that you had that night. I havent listened to much else since then, and neither have my friends. I cant wait to see you again!! God Bless.

Tiffany Biewer

Rom and the band,
I write to express our deepest gratitude for your contribution to the "Cuisine of India" fundraiser held for us last night at Dharma Cafe. You all were simply wonderful and contributed so much to the evening. I am so honored and humbled by your generosity. Thank you for giving of yourselves and your considerable talents. We consider you special friends of the Boniuk Center and will promote your performances regularly in our newsletter mailings, which are read by over 1200 people each month.

Dr. Jill Carroll

I saw you at the woodlands art fest...you guys were terrific. i know have all your cds...please let me know when you have anything new....and when you will be performing in the area....best of luck...you all are very talented group....a GREAT SOUND

Bruce Hogge

Dear Rom,
Wanted to praise the gorgeous performance at the JCC -- what an inspired message and a performance -- wow -- it was a celebration that cannot be described, only experienced. I was lucky I got the family to come along.

Sage Rose

Kathy & I loved your show at Town Center

Mark Miller

Rom,
Thanks again for making my surprise birthday party such a hit. Even the rain couldn't dampen the spirit of the party. You made a "challenging" event in my life (turning 50) delightful and memorable.
There were a couple of electrical cords left on the deck and Brooks will be sending them to you shortly in a large brown envelope. I hope you get them before you need them.
Please tell all the group members how much I appreciate them and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

Anita Myers

I just got home from Mcgonigel's where I just saw a group named Moodafaruka sight unseen and man was I blown away! This is the best live music I've heard in years. I was sick that I had to leave because I have just been diagnosed with parkinsons and was getting quite uncomfotable.
I did, however, download several of your songs and am enjoying them right now.
Count me in as a new Moodafarukie and please let me know when you guys play again. Since I'm not working anymore I will even travel to hear such great alluring music.
Thanks again

Allen Hernandez

You are so multifaceted !!!! Love your music and performance. What an asset you are to Houston.

Sheila Langston

Saw you guys at The Duck the middle of last year and was blown away. I thought your performance was amazing. I would like to know when you'll be coming back there and anywhere else in Houston.

David Hook

Had a fantastic time last night, thanks for the great music!

Audra Thamrin, Windrose Land Services

Congratulations on being one of Houston's great Treasures
