Anniversary Party in Centerville, OH on 05/20/2007
"When you hear the phrase "The band makes the party" it couldn't have been more true than when applied to the Tom Daugherty Orchestra. Their Big Band Swing sound made a very special event even more memorable.
They were professional, accomodating, flexible and FUN. They are incredibly talented and left us all in awe. They have a song list a mile long. They are the "complete package" with great musicians and vocalists.
Thank you Tom Daugherty Orchestra...you made the night a night to remember.
