"I want to thank you for all the enjoyable hours you have given me with your organ music.

For me there's no one else who can match your God-given talent. I'm 82 years old and have loved organ music ever since I was a small child.

I have always wanted to play the organ but it wasn't to be. The breaks never came my way.

I just wanted to send you a few words thanking you from my heart for coming into my life with your music on the organ.

The New Year is here an I want to wish you and your entire family the greatest of luck and health."

Your devoted fan,

Archimede Ziviello, USA


"I Just want to say a big thank you to John for a breathtaking performance at Llay last night (20/6/18). I have seen many good performances but John’s was the most accomplished and entertaining of all of them. I loved his style and it was refreshing to hear more playing than talking ! Music just oozes from his whole body. Wonderful."

"Dear Blackpool Tower, could you please thank John Bowdler for the wonderful Wurlitzer Experience I had with him yesterday morning. He was very helpful and very friendly towards me and the party that were with me. A great advert for the Tower."

"Hi John, just a quick BIG thank you from everyone here at Dancelife-uk.

What a fantastic time we all had dancing on Thursday to your wonderful music in the magnificent Tower Ballroom.

The prowess and command you have on the mighty Wurlitzer is truly awesome. Your timing, rhythms and the shear joy you put into your playing is quite mesmerizing. You portray and possess a very rare and delightful talent.

Dancing to your music is just such a joy. All our dancers had the most wonderful time.

You are certainly doing your part in keeping dance alive for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you so much."

"Dear John, enjoyed the DVD very much, also your Oswestry concert. We've learned to dance after a fashion since the last one we attended!

Hope to see you in Blackpool later in the year.

Keep on bouncing!"

"Dear John, we spoke at Torquay about Nocturne in Eb and I am happily playing it, though it does not seem quite the same as your version.That may be something to do with ability!!!

Everytime I go to one of these events I am blown away by at least one performance. This time you were the one.

Thanks for the entertainment. If I practise really hard I should get to be as good by the time I am about 150!!

Hope to see you again somewhere in the UK.
