My client was not pleased with the attitude and professionalism of this band. Band members should never eat off of a buffet without being invited.

Better World’s Response:

I asked somebody at the event about food for the trio and was told it was fine. I'm sorry that we upset someone there and will be absolutely sure about any details in the future. Thanks for your understanding. Marc Smason
