"Thank you for the outstanding music at our daughter's wedding August 24...you helped make it an extra special day for everyone. We are hoping to get up to that area end of Sept. and see a few places you will be playing, and would like to get to sit and relax and enjoy listening to you again... Toni & Cal West (Stellwagen Wedding)"
Dear Lex and Joe,
Thank you so much for an unbelievable session from all of you. We loved it as well as our guests did!
We hope in the end you had as good as a time playing for us as we did dancing the night away!

Hi Lex and Joe,
We have finally received our wedding photos and looking through them we are
re-living our fabulous day!
Here is a great shot of Ryan and I having a blast to one of your original
songs. I have many more photos of
you both playing at both our ceremony on Beachmere and at the cocktail hour
taken by friends, family, and our
photographer (Patrick Macnamara). If you would like some for your
website I would be happy to send you links.
We enjoyed hearing you play so much that the Sunday following our wedding we
went to see you play in York
with some friends.
Thank you for making our day so special. We will continue to rave about you,
and come see you play when we are in the area.

I wanted to say thank you for your amazing performance
at out wedding at the Black Point Inn this summer.
Jill and I were talking about how you set the mood
perfectly for the jazzy stuff, the "custom" songs and
the funkier stuff. We watched the video last night and
I was thinking that I wanted to tell you guys what an
awesome job you all did and the praise about the music
was free-flowing. If there is ever a chance for me to
act as a recommendation, I would gladly do so.
Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season and thank
you once again for doing such an excellent job.
Just a quick note to follow on from our wedding in Henniker on July 12th -
you guys were great, really great. We've been looking at the various
and videos that people made, and the amount of people on the dance floor
speaks for itself - I know that there were not many numbers that I sat
for! You judged the mood and the pace of the evening very well - getting
good light jazzy sound during the dinner, and then ripping into foot
stomping blues and swing for the rest of the evening.
It was also really brilliant the way that you were able to jam with my
Cabaret-singing brother - both during our first dance, and the impromptu
request in the middle of the evening.
Thanks so much to you and the whole band....
Paul & Teresa Osborn
I just wanted to thank you and the guys one more
time for helping to make our wedding an absolute
blast and great success!!! Everyone loved the
band. People who had never seen you guys before
were asking me where I found such a great band
and I told them I searched the internet for
hours, just kidding. Anyway thanks again and hope
all is well. By the way, tell Joe the cd came out
great and it was definitely one of the best
presents we got!
Thanks and take care,
Jeremy and Stephanie Roux

John and I are still in recovery from all the fun
we had on our wedding day(and the entire
weekend). I just wanted to send you a quick note
to say that THE NIGHT LIFES ROCK! The band was
great - we had so much fun I can't tell you. We
loved the music(including the cocktail hour by
Lex and Joe) - and so did all of our
guests(except one grouchy old guy who doesn't
know what's up- ask John about that guy). Anyway,
so many people loved you - that I am giving them
your website -because they want to order your
CDs. Also, one friend loved you guys so much that
he will be contacting you for another party.
Thanks again- Love Kerri C.

"The wedding was incredible! Everyone was
blown away by our ceremony (in the best sense of
the word!), but the other thing everyone talked
about all night, and are still talking about, was
THE BAND!!! Lex and the Nightlifes, were so
awesome- perfect, hip, cool,nice, nice guys, and
sooo gooood!!! they were downright slick!!!!They
were the absolute best! Everyone kept
saying,"wow, they're good...where did you
find them?!!!" "they are the Best
band!" Everyone danced all night, the floor
was never empty! The youngest teenagers were
dancing and having an awesome time, along with
the eldest of our party (well into their
eighties!) Thank you so much.

Subject: A great time with Blueswing!
Dear Annie: Sorry for the delay in responding to
you. We had a hectic time post-wedding, and then
a delayed honeymoon in Ireland. We wanted to get
back to you with a very enthusiastic report about
Lex and Joe's Blueswing. They were everything
we'd hoped for, and we were very pleased. Lex was
very cool and receptive to our musical requests.
He and the band were great at modulating the mood
and volume of the music to the pace of the
reception. We were pleased with his rendition of
our first-dance song, Cole Porter's "Night
and Day" -- we understand the band brushed
up on the song just for our day. The band played
a nice range of jazzy dinner music early on
before switching over to the hotter
rhythm-and-blues, blues, and swing tunes which
initially drew our attention when we heard their
demo tape. It was a seamless transition. The band
got rave reviews from our guests, with such
comments as, "This band is kickin'!",
"Can we get these guys to come all the way
from Maine to Toronto?" and "We want to
throw a party and have these guys play!"
People were out on the dance floor and cutting
the rug. Lex was funny and gracious -- at one
point, the band was asked to turn down the
volume, because the reception was held in a
museum, and a movie was being shown on the next
floor down. Lex accommodated the request without
a problem. We also were impressed that the band
made the entire round-trip from Maine, and
performed, in one day. Definitely professionals.
We were pleased that the band played so many Van
Overall, we think we got a very good value for
the money. We'd be happy to re-send this email to
you as a signed letter of recommendation if you
would like. And thanks to you, Annie, for your
responsiveness in dealing with us.

My name is Emma Clark, and I'm 16 years old from England. I saw you playing at a bar near the Eagle mountain house when I was on holiday in New England 2 years ago. Me and the rest of my family enjoyed it so much that we bought the album "Whats All These Blues About".
I am the one who has played the album over and over again and I love it! I was never really into jazz and blues before but now I can't get enough.
I wanted to let you know how much I still play and really enjoy your music. I play the guitar and I want to be a musician, I have written quite a few songs, and a few have been jazz, and blues inspired!
So thankyou for your music, I love it!!
lots of love,
