We hired Special 20s to play for our wedding. We couldn't have been happier!!!! They were excellent in every way. Morry, the band leader, accommodated our every preference and need. We are dancers and really wanted a band that we could swing dance to. He was wonderful to work with both on the phone before the event and really great at the wedding reception because he was proactive with the guests in their participation, timing, selection of music and beyond that the quality of musicianship was outstanding!! We had one rocking party that left our guests and us with lasting memories. It is without reservation that we recommend the Special 20s!!!

Morry + The Special 20s were INCREDIBLE! We booked them for a corporate event in Chicago (we are planners from Los Angeles) and they blew our expectations! Communication was fast and easy with Morry, they showed up early and set up (very self sufficient). They sounded great, looked great, and our clients were thrilled. Thanks for everything, guys! We so appreciate it.
