Wedding Summer 2012

“Hi, just wanted to say thank you for sorting out the band for us, was a totally wacky night, everyone loved the band, and had a good time (even if the genny died an hour before the band arrived). The bride loved it, and had a blast. The two main topics of conversation about the day was the pig spit and the band. Even though we had no power for the start, the band played on, and when it was fixed, it just made it better. I would definitely recommend the band, the music flowed nearly as fast as my homebrew, all the members were approachable, The caller was clear, i couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
