    Incredible to work with and extremely talented!

    Christina is an amazing person to work with. My husband was the one mostly in contact with her and she helped walk him through every step of the way. From beginning to end everything was very clear and we always felt like she had the answer to all our questions. We first saw her band perform at Frutig Farms and decided on that day we wanted her to perform at our wedding!
    Planning a wedding in 2020 was very tough and Christina made sure to make it a breeze for us. Highly recommend!

    Hiring the CK band will be the easiest and best decision you make for your event!

    Short Review: If you get Christina and her band to play for your wedding (or any other event), you will be making an excellent decision!

    Long Review:
    Pre- wedding + reception: Christina was a true delight to work with. Not only did she communicate extremely well throughout the entire process, she checked in with us multiple times throughout planning to ensure that we were happy with how everything was proceeding. We had to re-plan our wedding about 4 months out (thanks, Covid!), and she was one of the few vendors that was really flexible with how we could proceed. Honestly, just a great mix of professional, yet also very personable while helping to plan a huge part of our special day!

    Wedding and reception: The CK Band was phenomenal! From the first dance to the last song, they did a great job crafting a really personal set list and crushed every single song. They were able to being a ton of positive, fun energy to a small (~40 people) wedding, so I could only imagine how much they'd blow the metaphorical roof off with a bigger event. Having them play our reception and wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made during the whole process! They were truly fantastic from beginning to end!
