Just received an email from the person who booked the wedding The Fred Ross Project performed at earlier this month in San Mateo (September 5th). Names have been removed to protect the innocent (you know who you are anyway), and we removed a few lines that were remarks made directly to the booking agent.

Well you should know that Fred stole the show as we requested!!! And, the band too..as you promised!!!.
The things that make a wedding fun…open bar and a Great Band..? Maybe that is the wrong order…great band, limited speeches keeping great band from playing, great band, beautiful outdoor venue, great band!!!
You did a grand job for our team. How lucky the hotel recommended you…And, let me just say…we all fell in love with Fred and the band…I knew he could do Prince. VERY COOL.
FRED DID SUCH A SMART THING when he played Happy… I told the bride party over…last song. She said no, I want 2 more songs! He played 2 more of his own selection…!!!
He knew the princess bride didn’t know what time it was. He ALSO knew the hotel rules…very smart plan for this bride…and our venue…!!!
Funny story…the bride requested no line dances and no dancing through the party as you saw…on her belated form to you.
Fred complied and did his part!
SHE looked at me and Said NO..LINE DANCING! WITH a small smile she gave it up for Fred and the frat boys!!!..
