"Dear Dave and Gigster... Dave, you were fantastic!!  Thank you for your incredible performance in the chapel at Collisheen Estate on 7 September 2019 and for your entertainment during canapes and whilst waiting for the bride and groom to walk into the reception.  Robert and Michelle’s wedding was amazing and your contribution to the entire occasion added to the specialness of the afternoon. Thank you for singing the wedding Alleluja so beautifully.  Everyone of our guest have commented on how talented you are.
