Private PartyReviewed on July 31, 2021From Stockton, CA

We had a Mardi Gras party for about 300 people, Gumbo Band came and played, and they blew everybody away, they were absolutely awesome.

The Gumbo Band:

Like to thank the client for the wonderful review, thank u Sharon. Myself and Dr David Hardiman at this stage in our music careers are all about having big fun. It is so wonderful to be able to say it is not about the money but instead about making people feel good or even better great about their decision to make the Gumbo Band a part of their important occasion and then in the end they are so happy that they did.. Drummer, Paul Tillman Smith

The Gumbo Band:

Thank u wonderful client. Considering the social climate we are now engaged in pandemic and all we all came to the table the best we could. Many musicians are having a very hard time and at this time we'd like to thank any and everyone stepping out on faith to hire musicians.

I was very hesitant to use GigMasters... I was worried that it was some sort of scam and I would end up without a performer at my event... boy was I mistaken! The Gumbo Band was AMAZING, professional and so kind! We very much enjoyed having them at our event and are hoping to hold another event where we can have them join us again. Thank you GigMasters for proving me wrong and helping with such a successful event!
