What a great band! Extremely talented musicians, a patient & entertaining caller and lively tunes all helped to create a brilliant atmosphere that really made our party go with a swing. Everyone said they had a wonderful time & the band was great, the only problem was that the evening went too quickly! They all said that, & they all stayed right to the end at midnight, so I guess they were telling the truth!
