The Mexican Way were fantastic, great communication beforehand and awesome on the night. We went for the full Mexican 'Day of the Dead' theme fancy dress and Mexican meal to start, and the band really topped it all off and made it so different and memorable. Everyone loved the night and commented on how good the music was and what a fun evening they had. Everyone was singing and dancing and shouted for more when it ended - Farman was very kind to oblige and the trio belted out another round of 'Don't you want me baby' which had everyone on the dance floor. Thank you for making my party such fun!
Best regards, Michaela x
