Everyone Loved Our Cocktail Hour Music
In planning the music and the general vibe of the reception, my mother in law suggested we start the event off with some live music. We agreed that live music, especially a jazzy group, would go very well with the decor of the Stafford Perry. She was able to find the Mike Davis Trio, and with just a few suggestions and the venue information, they showed up, played beautifully, needed no assistance in their setup or tear down, and we got beautiful music at our cocktail hour! They even started a few minutes early when the ceremony wrapped up a little more quickly than we had said in the original quote.

We had the Mike Davis Trio for our wedding ceremony as well as our cocktail portion of the reception. I highly recommend Mike Davis Trio! Mike was great to work with on the music selection, and after the wedding he told me that they are adding one of our requested songs to their repertoire for future weddings!
Mike is a former college music instructor and accomplished musician who has brought together a team of seasoned professionals. If you're having an elegant affair, check them out!
