"Brandon and Jackie were such an amazing addition to our wedding!! We were very casual and fairly unorganized, but they brought talent and professionalism to make our big day even more special!! There were compliments galore from guests on “our” music choice, which Jackie and Brandon completely picked themselves. If we could get married again we would definitely hire them! Thank you both for being so laid back and flexible!" ~Karina S.
"This duo is multi-talented, personable and just plain FUN: not only is there a body of ORIGINAL work, Jackie and Brandon can tailor your event in a way that fits what or whomever is being celebrated. Musically and vocally, you will be delighted. What a great memory for my husband's most-excellent birthday party!" ~Susie H.
"These 2 talented artists have done something that is pretty difficult these days and that is to create an original sound that isn't contrived or a carbon-copy of anyone else. Rich vocal tones that go from sweet and sensual to powerful and gritty when needed are the hallmarks of their sound. The result is a soulful, bluesy, jazzy, Americana mixture that like few others in this genre is truly special." ~Dusty Gus Americana Review
"This captivating record offers a tale of tragedy and finding resolve, leaving the listener engaged throughout the journey in between. Every song has something to say and we're impressed with the maturity of this band's debut record." ~Texas Music Pickers Album Spotlight
