"Hi Geoff, Just a note to say that the guitarist was brilliant last Thursday and exactly what we wanted. He is a very skilled musician and all our guests were suitably impressed with his guitar playing.
Unfortunately, with the dinner party in swing he left quietly without disturbing us and the caterers did not let me know he was going. I was therefore horrified that I had missed him without so much as a thank you.
Please pass this e-mail on to him and thank him once again for a brilliant performance, which enhanced greatly our evening."
