Greg was a wonderful professional to work with during the planning process! Then the night of the performance the band came early, set up quickly, and had great atmospheric lighting to add to their sets. Their positive energy and musical talent made the show a unique and memorable experience for the audience. And it was the perfect way to spend the evening before our wedding enjoying the night and relaxing to their tunes. Having never seen live reggae before we were blow away with the sound, vibe, and energy of the GWP! Thanks guys for making our night one we'll remember forever. The Wells

We were so extremely pleased with The Greg Ward Project! Our son's high school graduation party was so perfect and I credit the GWP for making it the best party we ever had!! They were very professional and the music they played, classic reggae hits and original tunes thrilled every one of our guests. We are still receiving calls telling us how great they were! We definitely will hire them again in the future! Thank you Greg Ward and thank goodness we found you on Gigmasters.com!
