Bags and his fellow musicians were terrific! They were the second line band at my husband's funeral. Their music selection was perfect for the processional and recessional. They arrived on time, were friendly with my family, and lifted our spirits. They were wonderful to brave the hot day and long, difficult walk to the burial site. I know that my husband would be very happy that they granted his wish. Thank you so much! Carol Pitts

Bags and his crew were absolutely phenomenal!!! We had a 1920's themed wedding reception and I can't speak highly enough about how much they contributed to the overall atmosphere. They're all incredibly talented and Bags was great to work with. I would highly, highly recommend them. Such a fun sound and a great group of guys.
