Hundreds of people outside on a beautiful summer evening, listening to great music performed by a great band. What could be better? The crowd was up and dancing through the whole performance and the music mix fit was just right. We would highly recommend this high energy group and look forward to working with them in the future.

Very professional, experienced and accomodating band - they kept the dance party going from the time they started until the time it was over. Played wide range of dance music and provided their play list prior to party for minor adjustments. Would definitely hire again!
