This band played at our wedding reception and it was AWESOME. They took requests, rehearsed songs from our request list and played them beautifully. Set up was seamless.. Our guests and family could not get enough of them! People still rave about the band! In hindsight we could've done without the DJ and just gone with the band for the night.Sent on 10/16/2015
