"We had many musician friends at the wedding. We all couldn’t believe how much you were able to sound like the original artists!” ... Cindy and Rob Tobias
“I never danced so much. We were having so much fun, we hated to leave the reception to go on our honeymoon — we got over it.” ... Tom and Kathy Martin
“Our main concern beforehand was that a five piece band might be too over-powering for the room. We couldn’t have been happier with how you handled the volume throughout the entire reception. Thanks for doing what you said you would, and more.” ... Mary and Harvey Turner
“You knew exactly when to remain in the background and when to get people really moving.” ... Lauren and Ben Goldman
