Michael and Jennifer were wonderful to work with. We hired them to play at our son's rehearsal dinner in Knoxville. Their music and energy was one of the biggest reasons the evening was so much fun. They even took the time to learn a new song I requested. I really cannot say enough good things about them. They definitely were 5 PLUS in every category! In addition to being professional and extremely talented, they are NICE, as well. I feel like we made two new friends. I would not hesitate to hire them again, and can recommend them Highly!!

Mr. and Mrs. McLain were very accommodating and most of all very professional. They went above and beyond with providing much needed help with the booking process and and delivered a five star performance. I would most definitely consider booking them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking to receive a great performance!!!

Michael and Jennifer and the others in the group were superb! True professionals and very talented! For my daughter's wedding, we wanted them to play on the farmhouse porch during the ceremony, then move and play from the barnhouse patio immediately afterward, then move again to the pavilion tent to play during dinner. None of this was a problem for them. Very accomodating! And everybody love them! Their musical talent and audio expertise was all top notch! I rated them all with 5's because they truly deserve that rating! Thanks Banjocats! (also very nice people!.. it was a pleasure meeting them!) Sincerely, Rick Howard
