!Akimbo Rocked!!! They were so perfect for our amazing wedding in the Santa Cruz Mountains. They went the extra mile in helping make the event a superb success. They came early, in order to finish the sound-check before the ceremony began. They loaned equipment for a PA for the ceremony. And they were helpful and allowed a multi-track board feed for recording. They even played music for a contradance! The music was top notch, with wonderful variety and very enjoyable to dance with. The swahili love song, Malaika, made the perfect first dance, especially considering the bride learned the song in the Peace Corps in Tanzania. And near the end the "!Akimbo Mask" came out and led a thrilling group dance that all the guests enjoyed. Thanks !Akimbo for everything! -Jamie and Bryan

We asked !Akimbo to play for our wedding celebration. We were looking for a band that would play music to move our bodies as well as feed our minds. !Akimbo was that band. They exceeded all of our expectations. They came early to do a sound check to make sure there were no problems and that the sound was right. They were flexible and accomodating of our requests. They were interested in making the event what we wanted it to be. And once the music started, energy poured from the band and flowed into the dancers. !Akimbo doesn't just stand on the stage and play music, they perform! They interact with the dancers. They are not just there to do a gig, !Akimbo obviously enjoys playing their music and being part of the celebration. They played as long as we had the energy to dance. I didn't expect my mother to dance at all that night, but she was out there with the rest of us. In the week since the party, friend after friend has commented to us about how much they enjoyed the celebration. !Akimbo was at the heart of what made it a great party.
