Quartette Barbette did a fantastic job our Christmas party. We had hired them for background music, but they truly deserve center stage. We were very impressed with their sound, talent and extensive repertoire. I would definitely ask them back for a future event.

Barbette and her associates played for my twin granddaughters 4th birdthday party. It was absolutely amazing! We had several special requests for songs such as the overture of 1812, timed complete with canons, and it was A++++++++! Extremely warm and accomodating and will most definitely use their group again. SUPERB! Melanie Loveland Daddies Board Shop, LLC
