PK3 truly made the retirement party that I hosted for my friend outstanding. All of the guests have given me rave reviews about their performance. All members were consummate artists and performers. They were friendly, professional, and really seemed to enjoy being with us. They accepted requests and went the extra mile with an encore performance at the end of their concert. I do not hesitate in recommending them for your special event! Susan G.
