I just wanted to pass on our thanks to 4 Beats 2 The Bar for playing at our wedding recently. We have had so many comments about how good they were and how much people enjoyed the entertainment they provided. I'm no musician, but some of my family are, and they said they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. We'd certainly recommend them to others.
