Quantcast

The four musicians were absolutely amazing. Our President truly enjoyed them. I was told that the sound level was point on as well. Not too loud that people had to talk over but loud enough that people could enjoy them. They definitely enhanced our night.

Brian was easy to work with while we were hammering out the basics. I appreciated his positive outlook and flexibility in scheduling the location and the music. We had a wonderful time!
