Our committee members and guest rank Strawdawg a huge 5! They were terrific and really made our event a huge hit. We can not thank Strawdawg enough. They even offered to play longer as participants had so much fun on the dance floor. Hats off to Strawdawg. I highly recommend them and would hire again. Theresa.
