Birthday Party (Adults) in Marietta, GA on 05/04/2013
" Had the guys out for my birthday party on 5/4/13. Wow, what a great experience. Even though it rained that day, the band just moved inside and kept the party going. This band is so talented and so professional. They would be a great addition to any event. There was excellent communication between Jim Miller and myself prior to the event, which eased our minds during the planning stage.
These guys are great musicians and everyone at the party really enjoyed them. If you are looking for a bluegrass band for your next event, look no further. You've found'em!
