“We hired James and the band for a barn dance to celebrate a 21st and 60th birthday. The evening was a great success and I would thoroughly recommend James and will certainly be using the band in the future. Thank you James and everyone for an amazing evening.”

A very nice band who did a great job at getting my (somewhat reluctant) party up on their feet dancing. One of the band's member was late but this did not matter and they played later to make up for the time. Super friendly and nice.
