“I never danced so much. We were having so much fun, we hated to leave the reception to go on our honeymoon — we got over it.” . Tom and Kathy Martin
“Our main concern beforehand was that a five piece band might be too over-powering for the room. We couldn't have been happier with how you handled the volume throughout the entire reception. Thanks for doing what you said you would, and more.” . Mary and Harvey Turner
“You knew exactly when to remain in the background and when to get people really moving.” . Lauren and Ben Goldman
