We heard the duo perform at a wedding that we attended and I knew after listening to them that this the band that we needed to hire for when our wedding comes around. We talked with them here and there before the wedding and discussed our plans and desires while also recommending a number of songs to play for the ceremony. Lizzy did a great job with rehearsing the songs and sending us samples of how they were progressing with learning them before our big day. All that hard work paid off on the actual day as they sounded amazing and filled the stage with so much great music. What's more is that our guests were especially happy with their work and thought they were beautiful too. I am very grateful that they were there for our big day and that they worked so hard to make it so unique.
It was honestly an absolute delight to have Talisha and Chris playing throughout the ceremony and dinner and most of our guests are still talking about how incredible the band were weeks down the line. We have had people asking for your details and will be sure to pass them on. We would certainly have no problem recommending you guys.
