The entire band did an amazing job. Our friends and family have not stopped talking about how great they were. They had already come highly recommended from several others who have had them at their weddings, but when we saw them up at my family reunion last year at Gavin's, we knew that they were the eclectic band that we had been searching for! We could not get over how kind and humble he was either.Sent on 07/03/2012
When a group of air conditioning vents didn't work on that ridiculously hot day, the hall offered to extend the party and said that they would take care of Andy Cooney and the band if they agree to stay and play for us. The vents that were not working were the ones up near the band, but they did not complain, they just played their hearts out.
They all went ABOVE AND BEYOND by staying the extra time and they did it at no charge. We can't thank them enough!
