Bags Howard assembled a quartet of musicians to play for our wedding cocktail hour. They were great!! They had people tapping their toes and dancing the entire time and we received so many compliments on them after. The wedding venue even mentioned that they planned to recommend them in the future. The music was perfect for the mood we wanted to create for the wedding. In addition to their musical talent, they were very professional, on time, and wearing appropriate attire (of the type we discussed in advance). I can't recommend them enough!

Bags and his Riverside Carnival Band were absolutely amazing, and the hit of our speakeasy-themed wedding. They are a group of talented and professional musicians who kept everyone's heads nodding and toes tapping all evening. Bags was wonderful to work with in the months leading up to our event and accommodated our specific requests without any trouble at all. They even took a request on-site from my jazz aficionado in-laws, which was great. I would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone considering jazz at their event. My only regret is that I had to spend most of my time greeting my guests, and couldn't spend more time just enjoying the music!

Bags and his bandmates are truly all 5's!!!! They were on time, all were very talented musicians, and they engaged the crowd with sing alongs and pure dixieland fun! It was my Uncles 65th Birthday. After the party, he told us that this was the best birthday party that he has ever been to in his life!!! All our guests felt the same way. If you are having an event and looking for a band to bring home the good times - Bags and his bandmates are truly it!!
