From our first meeting until the actual performance, the band was nothing but professional. We loved having them perform at our wedding. Many guests could not stop rating about how much fun they had and how good the band was. They kept the seats empty all night long with their great music!

We experienced everything they had to offer – Freeze Frame with their 80’s music, and then had fun with their live karaoke, and finally we also were entertained by Groove Factory, which is their all variety music. It was fabulous and our guests really […]
