Is there anything else you would like me to know?
We’ve played over 2,000 weddings in most every Northwest venue and continually draw national and international acclaim by guests from New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, New Orleans, Nashville, and abroad. What do they say? “There isn’t one band in our city who plays everything you’ve played tonight, and at the level you have played it.” Extraordinary! The reason is that we stay more current with modern music repertoire than any band, anywhere.
