Memorial ServiceReviewed on June 4, 2022From Anza, CA

Everything was wonderful! Showed up on time. Played as agreed. Very satisfied. I would just note tho I wish one of the drummers did not have “advertising” on the side of her drum.

FuneralReviewed on May 4, 2022From Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

Darrell was so easy to work with. I had an idea of what I wanted him to play but he was very helpful with helping me figure out what would be best based on the service we were planning. Hes very responsive to calls and emails. Something I appreciate very much! And….the music was wonderful and a perfect way to make my dads service special. I would definitely hire Darrell again!
