I enjoyed the performance. However, I was not informed of the fact that their "lead guitar" broke his hand, until they arrived. I was told that the replacement would arrive at 6 ish she did not arrive until 7. In fairness Abbey offered for him and Tak to play as a duet until the replacement arrived. I refused as the sound would not be the same. All in all the music was professionally delivered, Abbey tried to accommodate as best he could. Guests were happy. But for the above I would have given them 5's across the board. I would recommend but would insist that they notify Gig masters or their hosts of any such fundamental changes ahead of time.
