We had a great experience with Tom and his Cats. He always returned my calls, checked with us about the song list, coordinated well with the hotel and our event planner and in the end rocked the house. We wanted a band that would keep the crowd dancing and having fun and they delivered. I would definitely consider using them again or for other events. Jim Noreiga
