"Just a quick email to thank you for your part in what was an extremely successful party to celebrate our company's 25th anniversary. Everyone really enjoyed the band and feedback has been fantastic. If you could pass on our gratitude to the other members of 'climax' it would be appreciated. I would certainly have no problem recommending you to future organisers and please feel free to use us for testimonials."
"I want to tell you that I danced for the first time yesterday to the Climax Ceilidh Band at Chippenham Folk Festival. They were great; one of the best and most innovative sounds I've heard for a long time. And this, in a car park, under canvas, in torrential rain and wind, with the strangest p.a. system in the world (Adrian. If you don't know, don't ask.). There were tones of The Eel Grinders, with drones from accordion (and guitar) over fiddles and pipes. There were bits of Cock and Bull, elements of French and European, from the pipes and guitar. The whole sound was new and original but conscious of its past. Some of their own tunes were inspiring and tuneful in a new fashion, and at the same time absolutely in the English dance tradition. Ms Masson was calling, she's good as well. Always knows when to shut up:- a great virtue in a caller."
