excellent choice for my Birthday/BBQ. Professional, easy going, talented group. Played great variety, all the guests had fun and commented "where did you find this band". Just a great time and they were a big part of it. Cant recommend them enough.

All the Above was very reasonably priced for the the surprise 40th birthday party that I held for my wife. Every one of our guests commented about how good they were and how much fun they had. All I had to do was call them, they showed up, and played. No issues.
