"I would love to recommend Mark and his band! They were worth every penny and then some. From classical guitar during the ceremony, to jazz during cocktail hour, and on to rock for dancing in the evening – they're a one-band do-it-all show. We got numerous comments from guests (we had around 200) that loved them, as did we. Easy to work with, reliable, etc. I can't say enough. Hire them and enjoy your wedding!" Cathy Reidy Liermann
