hello my name is buster I am from Woodstown new jersey. I just wanted to say thanks to you and the don’t call me francis band for coming out tonight to put on a spectacular show my friend. you knocked it out of the ballpark my friend. well let me tell you about myself. my name is buster. I am a 42 year old single male from Woodstown new jersey who was born blind at birth. my mother had german measles which caused my blindness at birth. However, I don’t let my disability get in the way of doing things. I do have some limited vision enough vision to still ride my fourwheeler and my tandem mountain bike. Chris, on January 19, 2001 I suffered a terrible loss when my grandmother went to be with the lord. she died of colon cancer and I can’t wait to see her when I get to heaven my friend. My grandmother chris was very instrumental in me accepting jesus Christ as my personal savior. I accepted the lord in high school was baptized 6 years ago. I am a very active member of my family church which is sharptown Methodist church. Ever since the loss of my grandmother went to be with the lord my family really doesn’t bother with me that much anymore so my church family and friends help me in times of need. I share my story with you my friend to say thanks for a well job done. All the mixes were exact and the sound was great it wasn’t too loud or too soft it was just perfect. the drum mix was perfect, the bass guitar mix was outstanding the guitar mixes were spectacular and the horns and the keyboard mixes were right on chris. I play latin instruments myself and am very knowledgable about sound and audio engineering. I have a friend who is a professional sound and mixing engineer by trade who use to tour with blood sweat and tears when my friend isn’t on tour he is helping us at are church keep the sound running smoothly as it does. maybe some day I will get the opportunity to play some latin instruments with the band would love to do that sometime my friend. again as a meals on wheels recipient I want to say thanks for coming down with the band to put on a spectacular show for us tonight.

I want to thank everyone from the Don’t Call Francis Band for the tremendous musical experience you provided for Meals on Wheels of Salem County’s 40th Anniversary Gala last night. Not only was the music fabulous, DCMF’s showmanship and professionalism in being so flexible with us on our program details was truly appreciated. DCMF helped make it an EPIC and memorable night for all our guests, donors and sponsors. With heartfelt thanks, Peg Marshall, Executive Director.

Thank you so very much. Last night was wonderful! All our friends, family, Abbey and I danced all night! I just cannot say how wonderful the band was. I am not sure if I will be able to walk for a while, as I danced so much, but I am not worried. I cannot wait until we have a chance to have another party and hire Don’t Call Me Francis again. Thank you again for making our wedding just as wonderful as we hoped. – Lisa Spector
