Just wanted to say "Thanks" for the extra back & forth on the Stefon Harris gig in the Family Theater last week.
Mr. Harris and his band were very happy with all your instruments and appreciative of your team going the extra mile for them.
Thank you on my part as well.
I wanted to extend my personal appreciation for your assistance last week with regard to providing the microphones we needed for the 8th Annual HBCU Career Development Marketplace. Thanks in part to Drums Unlimited, I'm happy to report our event was a success.
The American Small Business Alliance stages about 30 conferences of varying size every calendar year. As such, we plan to contact you again in the event we need specialized equipment or general A/V support.
Thanks again for your efforts and have a good week.

Thanks once again for hooking me up with all the backline gear we needed....revision after revision....you just add to the list. Thank you. Your staff were wonderful and a joy to have around. :) Our show was off the hook....one day, I hope you can come and experience it. You are awesome and I hope you will be around next year when I will need you again.
Thanks my friend...

Just a note to say thank you for the great job of taking care of our trio at the Gaylord gig in july.....everything was just great.
Just wanted to say thanks soooo much for your help last weekend! The DW kit and keyboard were perfect and everything ran very smoothly! Really appreciate your help and look forward to working with you again when we're out in the DC area..
THANKS SOOO MUCH !!! Hey, thanks for everything !!! Larry, was awesome.!!! I didn't have to worry about anything on stage, and thank God for that, I had many other issues to deal with. If I need back line anywhere up there again, you're the man. GREAT JOB !!!!
Great job on the BasketBall Charity event at the Washington Hilton Towers. The band looked and sounded great, and were happy with everything. Hope to see you all again.
Best, Jeff Vee
Thank you for your help putting together and pulling off the Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp / Health Monitor event at the Marriott. The gear was great (thanks for sending the jazz bass) as were Billy and Brian. I had expected to see Billy before he left, but got swept upstairs to look after the after-party, and guess he and Brian packed and blazed. Please tell Billy thanks for me, he did a great job. I looked at a venue we're considering for future full-blown Fantasy Camps, and these corporate parties are starting to take off. I hope we have many opportunities to work together in the future, and I'll recommend you to anyone looking for quality back line gear and staff in your area.
Thanks again for everything!
To Michael and All Staff at Drums Unlimited:
JJ Rassler from Rounder Records here: We recently rented gear from you, for Irma Thomas' appearance at XM and NPR. Our plans were altered midstream, and we called upon your assistance at an 11th hour situation. You were there. From first communication to the completion of the agreement, we experienced nothing but the ultimate in professionalism. Your courtesy, knowledge of our needs and experience with our mutual clients was a reassurance from the outset. Your service impeccable and your prices highly competitive.
As the Senior Special Events and Tour Coordinator for Rounder's National Promotions Dept., I would like to express our sincere gratitude and a large Thank You. Whenever we, or any of our associates, are in need of Tech Support in the DC area, it will be Drums Unlimited that gets the first call.
All the best, and Thanks again. -JJ
Where do I begin? What an incredible event and more to the point, what an unbelievable effort on everyone's part. Without a doubt, everyone went above and beyond the call of duty and Kim, Blayne and I want you all to know how much we appreciate your hard work. I know between the cold weather and sleepless nights, everyone was pushed to the edge... maybe even beyond. Yet, the end product was outstanding and the Air Force Memorial Foundation, The US Air Force and the Perot Family join me in thanking all of you for an incredible effort. We were all a part of history. Congratulations, thanks again and here's to the next time...
Dear Mr. Toperzer:
As we at Visionary Marketing Group officially conclude our Jazzy Summer nights Concert Series, I feel it is most appropriate to take a moment and thank all those who made this series successful. Month after month Drums Unlimited supplies our artists with all their required back line equipment as well as prompt friendly deliverers. I would like to extend a special thank you to Andrew, Billy, and Jimmy for all of their hard work and perseverance through the sun, rain, and humidity. Michael, thank you for being so flexible and accommodating. A genuine sales rep is hard to come by and I appreciate everything that you have done for us. It is a pleasure doing business with you and look forward to bringing you business on future projects.
Many Thanks, LaNae' Keene

I am writing to say thanks for all your help over the pass two weekends. Everything went well. I really appreciate you putting up with all the changes but it all worked.
Thanks again. Vander Lockett
Just wanted to say thank you, and how much I appreciated all your help on the ASCAP event. You truly made it happen. I can't thank you enough for your calm throughout all the twists and turns.
Thank you so much for helping me with last night’s event. Your guys were prompt, polite and efficient. Gear was great.

Hi Mike, Your guy Billy was great. He certainly had his work cut out for him. A very successful evening for everyone involved.
Thanks again, we'll do another soon....
Thanks for your work on Kegs & Eggs this year. The crew you sent out were great.
Assistant Program Director

Thanks again, you're very responsive, and helpful. It's refreshing to run across a company that has good customer service vs. some of the experiences I've had over the years. If all goes well, this could be our new annual tradition for our group coming to D.C. every Spring.
...thanks to Larry – from what I could see, there were no issues with back line from the Garfunkel crew, so we appreciated having him around.
DU, Thanks so much for a wonderfully thorough crew and excellent gear! I backed up Jon B the other night and was very impressed!
Wanted to let you know everything went great in Laurel on Saturday. Thanks so much! I hope we can work together in the future. Take care.

Great – thanks so much Michael! And thank you for being so flexible with us on this one. You all are so great – we couldn't do it without you!

Thank you so much for working with me on renting the keyboard for the 29th event at Park Place. It worked perfectly and the event was a huge success. Thank you for your help!
Thanks for a great job on the CCF gala event last Friday. Your guy David was excellent... it was a hectic night and he went the extra mile.
Talk to you next time! Happy Holidays-

...Thanks, and David did a great job yesterday, so thanks for that too...
I wanted to thank you for the kit at Jaxx on Saturday nice, they looked and sounded great. Even though I own a Recording Custom myself, I haven't used them with Y&T, man those drums sound great, the toms especially are awesome. that was a good sounding Black Beauty as well. you guys keep your drums in good shape to, with all the parts there, (you'd be surprised what some guys deliver).
Dear Michael. Just a belated note of thanks for the wonderful work you did for our performance at Lansburgh last week. You and your staff were magnificent, and the performance went smoothly thanks to your great control over the synthesizers. Rehearsing in your space felt great too. I am sure we will be in touch again soon.
My best regards, Angel
Michael, thanks again for everything, of course your guys were perfect as usual. I did give them a check that night, hopefully you received it okay.
Thanks for taking care of us last weekend. David did a great job. Told the promoter of that gig that he should use you next year!
Upright bass "Bob" is awesome -- our bassist loved him, including the large-diameter strings. The recording session went beautifully.
Many thanks, Rob Hayes - Berklee
Thanks again for all your work in helping produce yet another successful show. This was a tough gig; especially working around the unforeseen difficulties with the weather and a hotel that seemed inexcusably uninformed. David and Jason did an exceptional job and handled every situation like true pros, consistent with what we've come to expect from Drums Unlimited. Thanks for all your hard work.
I just wanted to contact you guys to say Thank You for the hospitality we received at Artscape I personally cant wait to work with you gentlemen again.
I wanted to thank you and your guys for Sat. Professionals all the way. I appreciate it.
I look forward to working with you again.
Everything was GREAT! True pro! Much appreciated! Larry was great to work with! Looking forward to working with you again on Sat!
I just wanted to check to make sure that we are all square. You’re guys did a great job and after the little amp deal the gear was great.
Once again,let me say thank you on behalf of all of us in the Franz camp. Everything you provided was spot on and i must say all the gear was in great condition,not something you always see on the road. It was a pleasure and we'll see you along the way again,I'm sure.
Brian (Bob) O'Brien
Thanks for all the hard work last night. That is a really tough venue. Anyway, you all put it together and made it happen, it went well and the client is happy. I owe you all a drink.
Just wanted to say thank you for all of your support on this event we could not have done it without you everyone was on time and on their game I really look forward to working with all of you again in the future.
Thank you for working with us again this year, the band had an amazing show! I put your check in the mail this week. We look forward to working with you all again next year!

Thanks to everyone for all their help with our performances. Sheryl was very happy and we hope to work with everyone again soon. The event overall looked great and I have gotten some nice reviews back already. Happy Holidays!
Thanks so much for the backline delivery on Saturday for BAE at the Hazy Air and Space Museum. Jason, who delivered, was great to work with, even with the surprise snow! He was flexible with loading in and setting up. Appreciate everything you did and always a pleasure working with you. Look forward to receiving the final invoice.

Thanks for supplying the drums on sat, they were perfect. Thanks for making it easier for us to return the gear on sat, as we spent all of sun in airports. You guys were great and I have nothing but good things to report about y'all...
Take care and thanks again.
Thank you so much for all your assistance with my program last week. The client was extremely happy with the guitars and services from Drums Unlimited.

I write to thank you all for the individual parts you have played in making our recent the AMAZING success that it was. There are 28 individual suppliers on this email list and whatever product or service you provided; you did so to the highest standards and expectations. Bespoke tours such as this become less and less common place for students; one of the predominant reasons for this is a lack of confidence in and increased apprehension of things going wrong. You and your teams not only remove that apprehension, but have systems in place to deal with the odd glitch which boost confidence for Tour Operator, Clients, Students and Parents alike..
Just another THANK YOU for your help with our jazz festival. Your man Mark was AWESOME and a pleasure to have here. Thanks for all you do and for being there for me every year when I need you! I sure hope you can come out someday!
You are the BEST!

Dear Michael & Drums Unlimited Team,
It was such a pleasure to work with you during the week of the Microsoft WPC. Thank you for the opportunity to use your services during the event. Our client was very pleased, and thanks to you we were able to execute a very successful experience for the Microsoft partners.
We look forward to working with you again in the future!

The gear was great and helped the show rock. Thanks for having everything we needed and getting it done. We’ll be back the next time we have a fly-in-out date in the DC area. You guys are pro.
I just wanted to say thanks for working with us on the Rita Coolidge event we had this last Saturday. Your equipment was in great condition, sound great and looked good. The technician you sent, Matt, was great to work with. He arrived on time, knew the equipment, interfaced well with the artists and my crew. He also did a quick fix on the snare drum to get it to work how they wanted for the show with out any snags. We really appreciated his work.
Again, Thanks, P.S. I'm checking on the method of payment for you.

This is "MC Mike"! I obviously took the email POC list from Vic Beresford for my email (Thanks Vic!). First, what an honor for me personally to be associated with such a first class, awesome, 'knocked it outta the park', Army Birthday Ball. If because of your individual role you were glued to your program monitor, audio or lighting board position, teleprompter jockey, stage manager, show producer/director/writer, or did your part for production but didn't get to be at the actual event ... I am passing along some unsolicited comments that came my way throughout the evening and the next morning at the Hilton.
CSA GEN O'Dierno - Thanks, you all are doing a super job and great event! (backstage left)
VCSA GEN Austin - Thanks for all you guys have done to make this event spectacular... (while headed for a bathroom break passing by FOH)
LTG LeGere - Thanks for a wonderful show! It all felt like we were part of one big family ... the Army Family ... very comfortable. (BSL after WCR I think)
Corporate Guy (and my classmate) - "How can we get the WCR for our next college reunion?"
Two drummers from FDC - "How can I tell folks I got to watch 7 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famers from backstage tonight?" (musician Nirvana!)
Young Army Couple Sun AM - This was our 4th Army Ball. The entire evening was perfect! Really liked Afro Blue during dinner and then high energy Rock-n-Roll and dancing later! And for you Karen -- "For a hotel, the dinner (food) was really very good! ... AND... easy access to bathrooms a big plus!" (said the wife as she smiled)
I think the high point of the evening for me was the remote to Afghanistan and the Soldiers. The standing ovation by our audience made it special. And I am glad those Soldiers had their lines all memorized too! If you have time, go to the Army Homepage and check out the story and some pics that were posted. Some good comments there as well from guests and what it meant to them to attend such a party.
Hope you all got some rest on Sunday!
Thanks again for allowing me, my Co-MC GeNienne, and everyone who was onstage at some point the chance to make a little difference in the lives of our Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families - America's Heroes! I know they appreciated all the hard work! Army Strong! HOOAH!
