"The Court Jesters were a special added bonus to top off our Heart Ball. You guys played great dancing music and I heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests. At the very end of the event, there was one table of attendees that were planning on staying until the band stopped playing! Several of the hotel staff and guests from other parties that night stopped in with their compliments of the music. Another great thing about having the Court Jesters at our Heart Ball was that many of our guests knew the band members personally. They were able to engage the crowd that we had and for that we are very grateful. Thank you for your talent, flexibility, and time spent with our organization."

-Lindsay Martin, American Heart Association, 2011 Heart Ball Executive Director'
"Guys: Thank you so much for participating in the fundraiser for Cara and her husband. I know that many people came and contributed to the fund just to hear your wonderful band. It seems like when there is a call for helping someone, people like the two of you and the legal profession step up to the plate big time. I know this is a belated thank you but I have my hands full with two retiring judges and 40 law students and professors from Mexico City. Again many thanks and happy and safe holidays for you and your families."

- Jimmy Allison, SABA Executive Director'

On behalf of the San Antonio Zoo Board, thanks for a great gig!"

And what came thru loud and clear is that you and the guys love to play - and that attitude made it a real pleasure for me to work with you. You delivered big time, and definitely exceeded our expectations. We appreciated (as did the client) that you kept the party going even though you had fulfilled your contractual obligation. That is a real switch for us when we deal with bands. Next time we are back to SA - you will definitely be getting a call. thanks again - all the best to you and the guys. Jf"

The Court Jesters continue to provide unbelievable entertainment compared to any band, but their performance is all the more remarkable because they consist of full-time lawyers and judges. SABA is in your debt."
