"The band exceeded our expectations and the musicians were a pleasure to work with. Their music was great and they are polished and professional in every way!"

Luann P, Barre, VT

"They were great from the very start til the end of our special day. They helped us put together the best combo/package for our French themed wedding. My husband being American we were so happy to find a group that could really embrace both cultures! Their repertoire was so versatile! We had violin and cello for the ceremony: simply amazing then the 5 piece band for cocktail hour and dinner was just the right amount of class and fun. Would highly recommend, could not be happier!"
