Wow, what a great performance! We hired International Strings for our rehearsal dinner and they went above and beyond our expectations. They even leaned few of our favorite songs on such a short notice. All of our guests keep raving about the band and I am recommending them to everybody. Thank you so much for making it happen and for your wonderful music!

They did a great job. Played the exact genre of music we were looking for (mid 40's jazz) and was perfect background music. Event was for 850 ppl in a ballroom.
