"Hi Ed,just wanted to extend thank you for all of your help to coordinate our 10 Year Anniversary Gala. Emerald City Throwdown was a hit and great to work with. Our audience enjoyed the jazz music during the dinner portion, and I’ve received great feedback on the show! It was a pleasure working with you, and I hope to collaborate with you in the future... "

"Ed Shaw has been an awesome partner for F5 in planning our large corporate events. Not only has he delivered "over the top" service on the actual day, but he also works very closely with us throughout the year, helping to secure the best talent available and suggest cutting edge themes for our parties. I would recommend him without hesitation. He is a true delight to work with, both personally and professionally."
"Ed, there was not a even a pimple of error throughout the entire production. Everything went extremely smooth and was accepted by our members and guests as a GREAT performance. The only way that I can imagine to thank you is to permit you to use any part of the production as a sample of your abilites and to be used as reference for a glorious recommendation. Ed, Thanks again and again. It and you were just superb."

"You took our and our clients’ vision and made it 100 times better and not one detail was overlooked. You did so with a “nod” and confident authority throughout the whole process, accessible and responsive. Thank you for making Zella look so good…”
"...do feel free to list "Nintendo" as another satisfied customer. I truly enjoyed working with Ed Shaw Entertainment. Your constant communication made the production process simple and the entertainment you provided was a hit! I will not hesitate to use your services again in the future."

"Hi Ed, Everything was FANTASTIC! We’ve heard nothing but raving reviews from folks who attended.
Thank you so much for everything. You were excellent to work with."

"Ed is great to work with because I can always count on his expertise in the talent industry to find me a great band for my corporate events. It's nice to know that I'm paying not only for a product but good customer service. I have recommended Ed's company to others and hope they will use him in the future. I appreciate how he makes himself apart of the event, which makes me feel much more confident as the event coordinator. I have worked with other talent companies and have not been as satisfied"
"I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thank you for everything...Our party on Friday was amazing. Everyone had a great time, in fact everyone all said this was the best party we've ever had."

"I wanted to take a minute and thank you for all of your help in putting together this event. Everything that I am hearing about this event has been VERY positive and people are saying what a fun time they had...In the past, HPBA has held receptions that were not very well attended because they were just “receptions”. …The event was well attended, and I believe that next year will have an even bigger attendance due to the fact of people raving about how much fun they had."

Ed, I just wanted to pass along my thanks to you and the band (3D) for a great performance at the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards [Ernst & Young] program. The band easily caught on to the timing of the walk-ons and sounded great during the dancing section… Please pass along my thanks to the band and I hope to work with you again for next year’s show.

"Ed is great to work with. I've utilized his company to hire out entertainment for several corporate events. He always provides top notch service, he's quick at returning calls, and a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend him."
"I just wanted to let you know that the band was wonderful on Saturday! They were so nice to get setup early, they were pleasant to work with, and they preformed beautifully. The employees really enjoyed hearing them. I just wanted to let you know that we had a great experience working with you."
"You did a fantastic job, as usual. You are a permanent fixture as long as I do events for F5."
Not sure if I've already sent you an email regarding Rocko and the band at our Suncadia wedding. They "made" the reception. Everyone commented on how fun it was to dance to their music and liked how they performed. Thanks so much for getting the details all squared away early so we didn't have to stress at all!"

"They were the best! We extended our time with them for an extra hour and they didn’t have any problem with it. I think they had as much fun as us! ...They were very organized and on top of it. As an event coordinator I was able to leave the night in their hands and was able to relax and have fun myself."
“Ed is reliable, professional and personable. He is attentive to each detail of our event and a pleasure to work with. Successes all around!”

Just wanted to let you know that all went well with Lindsey and Phil's afterparty!

Hi Ed, just wanted to tell you how great everything went! Julian was fabulous (we received many compliments on his music in the Conference evaluation forms). Please tell him thank you for his CD, which I have listened to several times already ?. Regina and crew were also total pros. The light towers were so cool and really set the “rock star” mood. The fundraiser was a smash success and raised 6 times more than we did last year! People LOVED it, and then they filled the dance floor until Regina finally had to leave. It could not have been more successful.
Thank you again, I would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone!!

Things did not go according to plan but [torrential downpour of rain] but your crew stuck through and for that I am really thankful. They were really easy going and friendly.
