What People are Saying About Us…

“…thank you for helping make our wedding so wonderful. Your music helped set the tone we wanted for the day – your trio played perfect background music for cocktails and dinner and later the ‘Big Band’ filled the dance floor. It was exactly what we hoped for. We appreciated your professionalism and willingness (and patience) in catering to our wishes. From beginning to end, working with you and your group was a pleasure. We are very thankful we found you, and look forward to adding your magical touch to our future events. I would be pleased to act as a reference any time. ”

– Shannon, San Jose, CA

“Craig and I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job the trio did at our wedding. We’ve had so many compliments on the music from our guests. (Even my heavy metal nephew thought it was great!) Naturally we feel our wedding was something special, but your music gave it a “classy” feel and made it that much more special.”

– Ginnie, Palo Alto, CA
