  • Highly recommend this band for your wedding or special event! Steve is so charismatic and very talented as is his female vocalist. The entire band is talented. So glad we decided to book this band for our wedding instead of a dj. Our guests really enjoyed them and everyone danced until the very last song. They totally made our night. Thanks again Steve!
