Wedding in San Diego, CA on 06/30/2007
"Alli and the Cats are consumate professionals. They were able to meet with us and prep for our wedding on short notice, and they were easily able to accomodate our requests. Alli also is able to learn songs that are special to the couple and perform them at the event. Her take on our song "Don't Forget to Catch Me" was perfect! Everyone thought the band was the perfect addition to the wedding, and we got a lot of compliments on their professionalism and their fantastic sound! We had problems dealing with other bands, but Alli was a breeze. If we ever host another large bash, she is on the top of our list for entertaining. "
