Wow! I cannot say enough about our event!!! Amy was THE BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all just loved her! She added an element that we didn't even know was missing from the event. She made it so much more special, I can't even tell you. Not to mention how both she and Heather chipped in to help me set up after it took me an hour to get there from Fisherman's Wharf! I was freaking out! Anyway, upon the very last raffle ticket hitting the bread plate, the troops came up the stairs and all was well! It was a huge, huge hit! We had a ball!! We will definitely ask for Amy the next time we plan an event. I will tell all my fellow planners, as well. I love the Hornblower cruise. I can't get enough of it. I tell everyone about it and encourage every passer by to go. The city from it's vantage point is so breath taking and the service, food and just everything is always the best.

I just wanted to tell you that you are awesome. I just can't even thank you enough. You made our wedding so special, it's going to make me tearful writing this.

And the songs sung at each table for us was so much fun! Everyone is complimenting us on what a pleasant event it was, and you really made it so. I really appreciate it. We loved watching you dance!

We're the ones that are sorry that we didn't get a chance to tell you at the end of the night what an incredibly wonderful job you did with the music.

I look forward to many future events, and to being of service! ;-)
Kind regards,

Amy -
As you know, we have had a number of Genentech events this year as the company continues to do research into cancer-fighting drugs. These biotech scientists do intense work in their jobs, so offsites are a great time to unwind from the pressure of their lengthy projects which are often a few years in duration. Every one of their event planners has lauded your efforts, and made special mention of how you made their event such a big success. Whether you were acting as DJ, Karaoke host, or team-building leader, they wanted to acknowledge your unique skills and thank you for the happy faces at the end of each event. As these word-of-mouth Genentech clients call me, they are requesting you by name... great job! I believe that Genentech is the largest biotech company in the world, so I anticipate that future business will come our way. Thank you for making Hornblower Cruises and Events shine!

The students at Piedmont High are just RAVING about what a good time everyone had on their Grad Night in 2003.

The kids keep thanking all the parents and now the parents are calling the organizers to thank them for the fabulous time.
-- Organizing Committee, Piedmont High School, CA
 

Thank you so much for your great DJ work Friday night. We had a blast and the promotion was a HUGE success! Renel is anxious to do another one. Thanks again, you were a joy to work with!
-- Jennifer Mullo 98.1 KISS FM, San Francisco, CA
 

I rarely ever take the time to write a compliment, but in this case I feel compelled. It is getting more and more rare these days to find people who truly go above and beyond to deliver what I consider exceptional service. Amy did just that. She made me feel very welcome at the event, like a friend rather than a guest. Her enthusiasm, playfulness and genuine affection for people was quite obvious, and never diminished throughout the evening. Her skill in getting people relaxed and involved with the karaoke and dancing, etc. demonstrated strong people skills, and was additional evidence that she really enjoys her work. I'm sure it was not easy being away from friends and family on New Year's Eve, but Amy made us feel there was no place she'd rather be. She is a talented singer, and we all enjoyed the entertainment she provided. She is the type of individual the world could use a lot more of.
-- Mark Hoenig, New Year's Eve party guest
 

The DJ, Amy Foster, was a blast. Amy was very outgoing and personable. The choices of music that she made were perfect with what we had selected before the event. People felt comfortable to go to her to make special requests and Amy was very accommodating. Amy's experience helped with the transitions of our event and the sound effects she used made a great touch when we were awarding prizes.
-- Jacqueline Walker, President, Employee Entertainment Committee Pharmacyclics, Sunnyvale, CA
 

It was a perfect evening, and I wanted to thank you for your awesome spinning capability. The music was wonderful as always, and I'm so glad you were able to make it once we switched our date. It would not have been the same without you.
-- Julie Stevenson, Marketing Assistant, Chevron Oronite, San Francisco, Ca
 

You made everything flow smoothly in a professional manner. We never felt rushed and were able to enjoy our wedding and ourselves. We heard from our guests, over and over was that our wedding was the best wedding that they had ever attended.
-- Michael Bede and Debra Stewart Bede

the dj at work!

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the wonderful "party experience" we enjoyed last evening. I had no idea there was so much hidden talent at CAD Solutions. The karaoke was fun, side splitting, and quite enlightening. Everyone who participated had a great time and those who watched had an even better time. You, Amy, responded to my every wish and made everyone feel that they were a part of the happening. You visited with each table taking music requests. I just wanted to say thank you for making my life so much easier. You took all the worry away and allowed me to be a guest at my own party. THANKS!
-- Linda Edwards, Director of Human Resources CAD Solutions, San Jose, CA
 

Amy was a fabulous DJ!
-- Susan Keely Incentive Dimensions, San Francisco, CA

First and foremost, thank you, thank you, thank you for a fantastic evening last night. You guys (City Beat Band) were just incredible. Couldn't have been a bigger hit - love that, and I LOVE you!
-- John McKinnon, Mana, Allison and Associates
 

Amy’s group stole the show. It was a spectacular show – Amy was awesome and completely engaged the audience. She had all of the guests shaking their booties to the music of the decades. -- San Francisco Event Manager
 

The band was marvelous! Amy improvised the Star Spangled Banner during the fireworks that was just magnificent. I'd like to hire this band for another event.
-- Peggy Martin, Benicia Yacht Club
 

I listened to your demo last night and it is SUPER! A++! You'll be great for our group.
-- Stephanie Wolfram South-Western Educational Publishing
 

Amy Foster and City Beat were fabulous. My worst fear was that the band would be "adequate". Amy surpassed my washes in providing excellent dance music, playing every song I had previously requested. Her voice is beautiful, and the band never missed a beat. Our people danced non-stop and enjoyed every moment of the music. Amy was receptive to any special requests or concerns throughout the evening, and was particularly helpful in her impromptu role as "cruise director". She kept the evening flowing so that I was able to relax and enjoy the party.
-- Cynthia D. Aiello, Legal Administrator Meyeres, Nave, Riback, Silver & Wilson, San Leandro, CA
 

Amy, you have a beautiful and versatile voice! We've enjoyed your band at our holiday party for the past three years!
-- Mrs. Grossman, owner Mrs. Grossman's Stickers
 

The music was perfectly timed, very jazzy and sophisticated, but also background during dinner, and then dancing like crazy after dinner.
-- Alison Healy, party guest

-- Marilee Sonneman, Sales Director, Mana-Allison & Assoc., Inc., San Francisco, CA
 

Amy, queen among entertainers- graced the group with her presence. It was like a Christmas party at mom's house with everybody leaning around the piano, eggnog and brandy in hand, singing Christmas carols. The group loved her so much; I want her on all my trips!
-- Captain Patrick Boyle Hornblower Cruises, San Francisco, Ca
 

We were lucky enough to have Amy Foster as our pianist and she did an outstanding job as always. Her singing, acknowledging of special occasions and the noting of special sites was perfect. Everyone loved her. I am still amazed that she can get people dancing during a brunch!
-- Anthony Patrich A & D Business Services, San Bruno, CA
 

Dear Amy... Thank you so much for helping to make our birthday party cruise such a success. We have received many thank you notes from our friends, and many of them commented on how much they liked the music, whether it was the CDs or your piano playing. You did everything we asked of you and more. You were concerned that I have some of the food, and I felt that you were really looking out for us. You told the guests about the sights, spoke of the things we discussed, and introduced everyone perfectly. Thank you also for suggesting that we have a caricaturist. He was enjoyed by everyone. We will recommend you to our friends should they need a pianist for a party. Thanks again,
-- Jan Half and Alan Hafter Birthday celebrants, June 21, 2003
 

A big thanks you to you for your piano entertainment and for providing the Phantom of the Opera show. We were a little nervous about booking the entertainment without previewing it first. Our group has a reputation of being hard to please and is used to having the best. In fact, when the Phantom show started, we were watching our group rather than the show, and they were mesmerized! The entertainment certainly met, and exceeded, your description.
-- Pam Hundal, Conference Coordinator Star Franchise Association
 

Amy Foster added the perfect touch to our event.
-- Barbara Grisier, Taligent, Cupertino, CA
