Perfect Wedding with a perfect band.

We loved the Bay Kings band and highly recommend them. Tori and Brandon have great voices. The band had a huge variety of music and definitely kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Even our nondancers couldn't sit still and were on the dance floor. We had a 9 piece band and the horns were a great addition to the band. The Bay Kings helped make our night perfect.
