Shag Horns totally made the day special. Chris was always responsive with all my questions and asks leading up to the event, and on the day of, the band totally rocked it and rolled with whatever we threw at them. We ended up taking the party outside at one point and the band totally was able to make a parade and lead people outdoors and keep the party moving. They are all extremely tight and great players, and our guests can't stop talking about how fun they were. Book these guys! You wont be dissapointed!
We play all your favorite throwback jams from the 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's and guarantee to keep the party going all night long.
