These guys were the perfect group to play for us on the evening of our wedding. They were professional, fun and played beautifully the whole evening. We danced all night long. Nathalie has a stunning voice. We have had so many people come and tell us just how much they enjoyed everything. We couldn't be happier and would love to do it all again. Thank you all very much.
Oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about! Natalia sang beautifully all through our wedding day celebration, and I'm not surprised she had so much praise from the guests. You all selected the perfect music for what we wanted, and got the whole crowd on their feet to dance.
The lunchtime party I had for my 21st birthday featured these guys, a bassist and a couple of guitarists. I've never had such a good time at a party! HUGE HUGE thanks for everything and for putting such big smiles on everyone's faces. I'd love to book these guys again sometime!
