We enjoyed ourselves at the Eton! It was worth the drive from New Liskeard! It was a 6-7 hr drive.
You are a fun bunch!

I wanted to thank you so much for helping to make Friday's event a success. The band was great and I have already received lots of compliments on the night. I appreciate all the little extras -the introductions, the positive attitude, working with the other artists -and playing right through!! Please pass my gratitude on the other guys. I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Thank you for a great night of fantastic music at the Granite Club 25th McMurchy Tennis Invitational reception on Nov 28th, 2015. Go Freddie Go was a great hit with my guest, with nothing but compliments from them all. Your music selection was bang on for the night and I will continue to recommend Go Feddie Go to anyone who only wants the best.
All the best,
Blair A. McMurchy
We meant to send this earlier, but we just wanted to let you know how happy we were with you and the rest of the band at our wedding!
Everyone was having a great time dancing right up to the end of the night, which was exactly what we were hoping for. We got a ton of complements about having you guys play (really, from everyone there) and I suspect you might have some additional work from some of our guests in the future.
(My boss, Rob, attended and mentioned that, coincidentally, had you guys play at his wedding a few years back too.)

Thank you for a great night of music and fun. You guys were awesome!! We had lots of comments about how great the band was. I am so happy it worked out and you were able to join us. Hope to do it again some day!!

You beat me to it; I was going to write an email to you later today to say thank you. The band was totally AMAZING. So many of the guests complimented the band and commented on how great it was to have music they actually enjoyed listening to and dancing to. Thanks, also, for backing Maya up so well during her song; a very special moment for her -- to sing with such great back-up!! :)
All the best,
Janna and Mike Nadler
Hi Paul and Gerard and Skeets,
I want to thank you and Go Freddie Go for making my "When I'm 64" Birthday Party such a huge success. The band was amazing!! I don't think I've danced that much in a long time. So much fun! I really appreciated that you worked out an arrangement of the Beatles' song "When I'm 64".
You did a great version of it. I also loved how you couldn't be stumped when one or two of our guests requested some songs that they believed would be too difficult for you to tackle. You guys blew them away.
I've been getting lots of amazing feedback from our guests. Go Freddie Go never disappoints. I know I'll be calling you again in the near future when we're planning another dance party at BPYC.
Hope to see you again soon,
I did not have time to write you an e-mail following the wedding, because we had to leave almost right away for the honeymoon.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the other members of Go Freddie Go for a truly fantastic job. The energy level was very high and the band is extremely talented. It really added a lot to our wedding and we received a bunch of comments regarding the awesome live music.
Thanks again for helping to make our wedding as memorable as it was.
Just wanted to thank you and your band for
last night. So many people came up to us
to tell us how wonderful you were and
wanted to know where we found you guys
(thank god for Elaine!!). You guys were
awesome and really made our night.
Abby and Dan
Thanks for your best wishes. Sharon and I still remember and reminisce about how much fun we had!! So many of our friends continue to comment on that night also. You and your band were "instrumental " in making it such a great night!!
Jeff and I are on our honeymoon in Jamaica right now but we really wanted to say thank you so much for your awesome performance at our wedding! So many of our guests were coming up to us saying how much they loved your band! "Go Freddie Go" made our wedding reception all that much better. We all had so much fun dancing and enjoying your music!!!
Heather and Jeff Grimshaw
Awesome night---thank you so much; you and the band were spectacular. Thanks for the Neil Young song as well----meant a lot to me my friend's mom.

Thanks Paul for your band's great performance at the Oshawa Golf Club last night. In the 8 years we've been there, we've had over 30 dinner/dance nights, many with bands, some with DJs, but none of them had the crowd up and dancing non-stop like Go Freddie Go. To have people stay until after midnight was simply unheard of, in the past, things petered out by 10:30! People were coming up to me all night saying how great it was, and several wanted your contact info for upcoming events they were having.
If you'd like to trek out to Oshawa again next year, we'd definitely love to have you back for our opening event. We'll let you know once the date is finalized.
Andy & Gloria Schwabe
Thanks again for last night. You guys put on a great show and you worked really hard. I will definitely recommend you to others.
Thank you so much for a great night of entertainment. You and the band members did a great job to make Jim's party a huge
success! All our guests had such a good time dancing & listening to your music. You did a great job handling all the requests. You even got that Tennessee Waltz down for Jim!!!!! He's already planning on his next one!!! Says he thinks he should have a 65th!!!! Thanks again for everything. We'll be watching for your upcoming dates.
All the Best,
Want to thank you, Skeets, Gerard, Keith and John for another incredible evening. The place was jumping and everyone had a wonderful time. This was our fourth fundraising event featuring GoFreddieGo, and it was the best! The band never lets us down with their talent, energy and humour.
You are the best!
Paul (et al "Go Freddie Go" members),
We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the incredibly entertaining performance you provided at our wedding. Our guests are still raving about the song selection. Our goal was to make sure everyone had an enjoyable evening and you performance made that possible.
Wishing you all the best,

Just wanted to thank you again from Monica and me. You guys were absolutely fantastic, and we couldn't have asked for anything better. The crowd was loving it, and the music was perfect. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding a very special night.
I look forward to seeing you guys play again!
Thank you so much for playing Patrick and Monica's wedding. you guys were great. special thanks for letting Maddie sing. it made me a very proud Papa.
I just wanted to say thanks again for the awesome show your band played last night. Your music made my sisters reception very special. I know that a lot of people were very impressed with your playing and I hope that it results in more business opportunities for you in the future. I hope to hear you again soon at other venues!
Hi Paul and Gang,
We just wanted to say hi and thank you once again for all your hard work and the great entertainment you provided at our wedding! You guys did an amazing job and the feedback we received about you guys was great! We look forward to the possibility of hearing you guys play again in the future and wish you all the best! Take care and thanks again.
Benjamin and Mia
Lauren and I just got back from our honeymoon last night, but we wanted to send you a belated thank you for making our wedding such a great party. You guys rocked hard, from the hora until the house lights went up, and our guests haven’t stopped raving about the music. Given the history of Sax family and your band, we’ll probably be in touch for you to play at the weddings and birthdays of Lauren and my kids.
All the best,
David and Lauren
Thanks so much for a great performance! As always you guys were amazing - the life of the party.

I apologize for the delay, however Gary and I wanted to let you and the rest of the Band know how much we enjoyed having you at our party.
Everyone had a great time and everyone commented on how good the Band was.
Thanks again and hope to see you again.
"what I like about you"!
My husband and I were at the Donalda Club curling event last evening and thoroughly enjoyed your band. Obviously very talented. Please add us to your mailing list of where your group will be preforming.
Back from a mini vacation from the states. I am not back in the office until Tuesday, but wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the band for a wonderful evening last Friday night for our Ontario Region Gala, the members really enjoyed themselves and appeared to love your band, the band members and the variety of music.
It was a pleasure meeting you and some of the band members. I hope they all had an enjoyable time playing at our event!
Cheers to you and gofreddiego band!
I look forward to hearing the band play again in May in Collingwood, we ll touch base close to the event date!
Thanks Again Paul, pls extend my sincere comments to your band members if you could.

I meant to send this before now but I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for making our wedding on October 23rd so special. The guys were amazing, just the best. Everybody said how much they enjoyed the music and I couldn't believe how much dancing was going on. We only had 50 guests, but over half of them were dancing at any one time, right from my 3 year old niece to our parents. The venue had previously not allowed live music due to concerns about the volume, but we had no problems in this area, the music was loud enough to dance to but we could still have a conversation in the same room. We had to shut down at 12.00 and everybody was sad about it, that is a good sign!
We had booked the band to start at 8.30 but we were about 45 minutes late starting, due to over enthusiastic wedding speakers. We were really impressed that the band then played straight through, only taking one short break, for the rest of the night. This meant we really did get the full benefit.
Go Freddie Go really made our wedding reception perfect.
Big thanks aswell for the awesome version of Rocking in the Free World they did for me!

Dear Mr. Filipiuk,
On behalf of Toronto East General Hospital foundation and Jenny's Annual Beach Party Organizers, I would like to thank you and the rest of the members of Go Freddie Go for continuing to entertain party goers each year and for keeping everyone on the dance floor 'til close' at the 8th Annual Jenny's Beach Party fundraising event.
Over the last eight years, the late Beaches resident Jennifer Houghton and her family and friends have raised over $130,000 for the Toronto East General Hospital Oncology Clinic. In keeping with Jenny's last wish, all funds raised go towards the comfort of Oncology patients and their caregivers.
From all our patients, families and physicians who will benefit from the funds raised at this year's event thank you once again for your part in making Jenny's 8th Annual Beach Party Fundraiser a success.
Toronto East General Hospital Foundation
"Go Freddy Go" was a great success at our event and I thank you so much for your fabulous team and wonderful music. You were "Right On" and gave the evening pizzazz. It was fun, peppy and classy all at the same time. Thank you Paul. You are popular and busy, but that is exactly what one wants when they have their own successful speciality business. You are the best and we were thrilled to have your group as an important part of our evening. Happy Halloween!! If we do Masquerade Madness for a fourth year I know we will want you to play. Thank you "Go Freddy Go" was the tonic our party needed.
Thank you again for playing our wedding July 11th.
You were the highlight of the wedding. People couldn't beleive how good you were. We're recomending you to EVERY new wedding we hear of!
Emily and Peter
P.S. Here is a picture of you from the wedding:

Just a quick note to tell you how pleased we were with the band at Tim & Melanie's wedding last Saturday. Everyone enjoyed the music and had a great time! Also, thank you for indulging our friend (who only sings Doors and Pink Floyd, as he no doubt informed you!) and my own whim to play as well.
I can't tell you the amount of people who have emailed me about how fantastic you guys were at my mom's party. Thank you so much for making the night. I have given your contact information to those who asked, including a few curious neighbors who slept with their windows open to hear you.
I heard your band "Go Freddie Go" at Midnight Madness in Oakville and really enjoyed the show!
Would you please add me to your mailing list so that I can attend future events and concerts.
Thanks so much!
It was great to meet you at the Oakville Midnight Madness on Friday.
Virginia and I both had a blast and are really excited for our wedding now that we have heard you guys play.
Incidentally we had one woman ask us how we found you as she was thinking of booking you for her son's 18th birthday (we gave her your website) and another woman ask if she could come to our wedding!
My wife, Marisa, and I were at the Corso Italia Festival yesterday (Sunday) and had the pleasure of catching your band's performance for the first time. We were absolutely delighted with your sound - great instrumentals, excellent vocals (your harmonies during the Beatles songs were teriffic) and smart choice of songs. Although I have recently had surgery to replace both of my knees and am walking with canes, your great sound and choice of songs moved me to get up and dance. I'm paying for it today but it was worth it.
I stopped by and asked for your card and briefly chatted with you at the end of your final set. You mentioned that you could put me on an email distribution list to advise me of any future public events where the band will be performing.
Unfortunately, I don't have any family events coming up where I might have the opportunity to hire you but Marisa and I would love to see and hear you again and to bring all of our friends.
Keep up the great work!
Wow! What a party...
Paul, there is only one word for the band and how young you made us feel at the party on Saturday night, WOW!!! So many folks came up to me, or phoned me after the party, to express their delight with the band. You guys kept us on the dance floor long after our feet said, enough! And, you can count on some more island gigs, everyone wants you back.
You were great to deal with and all of the guys were sweet, so a very big thank you from me. If you need a reference in future, please do ask me, I'd love to tell everyone how great you were.
Best and warm regards,
I'm so excited that you're available and willing to play at our formal in June. I was at the Hadden (Dave Hadden - Headmaster of Lakefield College School) retirement party in November and had the time of my life dancing to your music! Everyone had so much fun and your band is fantastic!! The students who were there are telling everybody what a great band we have for formal so the hype has started. Thanks so much and I can't wait to hit the dance floor again!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you guys that you MADE the party for our parents. It just wouldn’t have been the same without you. I can’t tell you how many people raved about your band. I think Georgie and I are becoming your agents, we’ve been asked for your info so much!! I’m going to pass your info along to some friends of mine in the event planning business.
I really enjoyed working with you – you set my mind at ease a long time ago.
Thanks again Paul. Hope to see you again soon,

Just wanted to say thank you SO much for the Freddie's on Saturday. They were the best received entertainment of the day. We had people say that they have been doing this walk for many years and had never had a band that was as much fun as Go Freddie Go. I'm sure you'll be asked to come back next year.

We so enjoyed your band on Saturday night. The music was perfect for our very mixed crowd and was a wonderful way to enjoy the rest of the evening. We have already had a couple of inquiries about you guys, so I hope it ends up bringing you added business!

Dear Go Freddie Go,
Wow! Thank you so much for all of the entertainment you provided on our wedding day. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing. You left us more than impressed as well! The night went by so quickly, we just wish that it could have lasted longer.
Jen & Jamie
Oh my gosh, thank you SO much! I'm on my honeymoon right now . You guys were FANTASTIC - you got so many compliments from our guests. I absloutely loved how you played our wedding song. I can't say enough good things! People are STILL talking about how great you were.
Just wanted to say thanks to you and your band mates...the wedding was amazing and everyone really enjoyed the music and dancing! I hope everyone on your end enjoyed it as well.
Thanks again and I hope to see you soon.
Want to thank you and the band for a wonderful event on Saturday May 3. The dancefloor was crowded all evening and everyone had a wonderful time thanks to GFG.
With the success of our third GFG event, our charities will surely benefit.
Once again, thank you ....you were amazing!
You guys were terrific! Everyone loved the band!
Thanks for helping make our event, a special evening, and one which will be remembered by all. You can tell they like the band, when we had to kick them off the floor.
Let's hope we get to work together again soon.

I am chairing a committee for the Woodbridge High School 50th Reunion / Anniversary Bash, set for the weekend of September 20th, 2008.
I'm not sure if anyone from the entertainment committee has contacted you yet, but your band has been proposed as our entertainment for the evening. Anyone who has seen the band perform can't say enough about it and with music that ranges from the 50s to the 70s you will cover the range of age of our attendees perfectly!
We are expecting about 600+ people and have a huge tent booked at the Woodbridge Fairgrounds for the Saturday night.
I am hoping you might not be booked...will you please check and let me know? I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Thank you very much.
I've been meaning to send you this email since August! Sorry it's so late. You probably don't even remember our wedding back in August - but people at our wedding certainly remember you guys! You really made the night amazing, and without you there I don't think the wedding would have been as much fun for us and everyone else.
I hope that you're all doing very well, we're doing great here in London and if any of you are ever around make sure to give us a bell so we can treat to a well deserved pint.
Best wishes this New Year,
Julia and Alex Arenson
ps. you guys f-ing rock!
Just a quick note to thank you, Skeets and Gerrard for the amazing entertainment you supplied for our wedding last night! Everyone was commenting on what a great band you are, and by the looks of the number of people on the dance floor, I think you were absolutely the right band for us! You really helped to make our wedding fun and memorable, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the people who were there end up booking Go Freddie Go for their own events. I will certainly encourge them to do so! You sounded and looked awesome!
Thanks again! You guys rock!
Back from Honeymoon and just wanted to say that everyone raved about Go Freddie Go!
As the bride, the day just flew by and a lot of it doesn't seem real, but I did dance a lot and remember hearing so many of my favourites. Thank you so much for making our night even more memorable. You guys did an absolutely fantastic job. The dancefloor was never empty. It was a beautiful night outside, so a lot of people were drawn to the outside patio, but every single person I spoke to said that they did dance and that the sound of the band was just amazing. Some people said that they couldn't leave the dancefloor, the music was so great. The brass section was a real hit too. Lot's of people talking about that.
Keep us on your list, as we would love to catch your next act.
We wish we were getting married again to have the party all over again and a reason to hire the band! Thanks again for everything and for making it run so smoothly.
All the best.
Kate & Jon
We wanted to thank you so, so much for all your help with the wedding audio "stuff". I don't understand that "stuff" and you were so, so helpful and accommodating. You put my frantic mind at ease!
We have to thank you for making our wedding so special. To have Go Freddy Go play was one of our must-haves and you guys did not disappoint. We have not stopped getting compliments on how great you guys were. You pleased the young and old alike! I'm sure you could tell that you were well received by the amount of people on the dance floor right up to the end of the night.
You made our day so special and we are so grateful. All the best,
Terri and Paul Parisani
LIVE CD REVIEW:
"The Toronto based Go Freddie Go proved once again what fans and admirers have been saying for nearly two decades: that no one serves up the same tight-packed, tireless Rock and Roll with so much fun and energy as they. Though billed modestly as an 'oldies cover' band, Go Freddie Go is really so much more. From 40's swing to Beatles to Led Zeppelin to Country & Western and beyond, their versatility makes them more resemble a can't miss, traveling party than anything so easily classified. And a recently added horn section has given the group an even fresher edge. I've seen Go Freddie Go mix it up as a trio, quad even throw in all kinds of instruments for variety. But I've never seen them look and sound so hot as they did on January 1, 2000 at their New Century Party at Scruffy Murphy's. Armed with their amazing repertoire and tremendous enthusiasm, The Freddies and their horns had the packed crowd on their knees gettin' healed till the sun rose! For those who were in attendance that night, this live recording will be a treasured momento. And for those just now coming to know the Freddies, I can think of no more fitting introduction"
