McCleod Nine String Duo made our party an exceptional night! Their repertoire was fantastic and diverse and they added a huge element of fun to the night. They are not only great musicians, but also very professional, and got everyone involved with singing and dancing. Several guests commented at how much their music added to the night! Thank you Christy and Gordon! Hope we can book again soon!

Christy and Gordon played for my husband's 50th party this weekend 3.1.2019. They were both AMAZING! It was definitely money well spent as they were exactly the entertainment I wanted for our party. They got us up dancing and laughing. They were on time and set up when we arrived. Christy is easy to talk to and listened and asked questions as to what songs and how we wanted things. We are going to listen to them again next weekend at the North Texas Irish Festival! I can't say thank you enough for the professionalism, talent, and genuineness you brought to our party. You were the icing on the cake!

I am very impressed with the level of talent Mcleod Nine possesses. I have hired many bands and entertainers over the course of my 15 year career and they are in my top 3 favorite performers ever! My Assisted Living & Memory Care Community is a senior living community age 65+ and their performance got them all dancing and singing along. They were absolutely high energy and are just phenomenal entertainers and we will be hiring them again! I would recommend this band for any age group, venue or event, I was completely engaged in their performance throughout the evening! And on a side note, Christy and Gordon are great to talk to! Just an enjoyable evening!
