St Louis, Missouri

Dear Gentlemen of The Contors:

Thank you most sincerely for a first class performance at the Backstreet Jazz and Blues Club at Westport Plaza on Saturday night July 15th.

Hearing and seeing The Contors on Saturday night was definitely one great highlight of a very great weekend. We could not be happier with the choice that we made for musical entertainment for our Saturday evening out.

Most musicians say that it is a long and difficult road to success in the business of musical entertainment. I believe that The Contors have arrived at that success and I really felt that we were seeing and hearing a solid team of professional musicians at work. You eight individuals are each so unique and so talented, while so at ease in providing smooth and cohesive sound together, that I felt compelled to say thank you and commend your hard work and the dedication that has brought you to where you are right now. Your product of music and the entertainment of seeing you each working together with such style of performance and having such a good time in providing it is very much appreciated.

My girlfriend and I had such a wonderful weekend that we plan to do it again and hopefully we can see you again sometime. We visited your city to provide transportation to my nineteen-year old guitarist son to attend Oz Fest, deciding to make a weekend of it for ourselves by dropping him off to meet his friend on Friday night and then just enjoying the city until rejoining him at noon on Sunday. We visited the Zoo at Forest Park, we dined at Favazza's on The Hill, and we got to see The Contors. Weekends just don't get any better than that.

Yours in Music,

Steve Coates
Springfield, Missouri
