"The Curt Landes trio was the hit of our wedding
reception. Their easy, relaxed style and jazzy tunes made all of our guests, both young and old, feel like dancing and added
that element of fun we wanted. Everyone had a great time and couldn't stop raving about the band for weeks. Thanks Curt for
making our wedding and reception even more memorable!"

Curt for being a part of the festival this year! I heard from several people that you were their favorite performer of the
day. I too thoroughly enjoyed what I was able to stop and listen to. I need to come to a performance when I am not "working."

"...the trio we had for Valentines (Curt Landes)
was in our opinion and that of the Schwindingers as good as it gets...we liked them better than larger bands we've had in

Curt, I wanted to thank you & your band for a truly wonderful evening. As I had suspected, you & your group were
the perfect fit for this affair & it's guests.
Every single person that either Marie or I have
spoken to, have mentioned you guys, and what a nice evening you had made it"

"It was a fabulous show. I mentioned to my friend
Kevin that this is as good as it gets. We couldn't have heard a better show anywhere else in the world! Daryl, Wilhelm, Andre
and you were the best musicians I have heard in a long time!"

"...thanks so much again for playing for us on
Sunday. We're still "high" on your music even w/out beer, Curt. People still talk about the event. ...
I love everything you guys did. ...For sure we'll come and see your performance around town. I'll bring friends. ...I
just wanted to relay the over-all positive emotion that was apparent during the party. Gaptoof & Friends' performance
and presentation set the happy as well as contemplative moods.

We had a delightful evening last night at
your performance with Brian at Joe's Cafe. What a great way to show my Aunt Patrica, visiting from the Northwest, some
of the fine music and culture we have here in St. Louis. My parents were quite impressed and truly enjoyed themselves. My
wife Lindy, friend Ann and I are very frequent consumers of the wonderful musical offerings at Joe's and St. Louis in general,
so expected nothing less than the excellent show you delivered! ... I wish you continued success and look forward to seeing
each of you again, soon."
