Recent review: "The music was fantastic, the dances where simple and fun, my only issue with the band was I found the caller to be unnecessary harsh in what I assume was his attempt at banter, however I did feel it regularly came off as demeaning and rude. Not ideal for the mood on the dance floor. Still though he did get the job done, we fumbled through the dances and had a good time doing so."
