Dana just played at our wedding in September at the Botanical Garden in Des Moines and he did an amazing job for us. He really is a talented musician and everyone tremendously enjoyed his music. What's more, he was so easy to work with and really went out of his way to understand what we wanted. He was always on the ball with follow-up and planning and everything was exactly as he described. To say he over-delivered is an understatement. He was our favorite wedding vendor, hands down. Book him for your next event, you won't regret it!!!!!!
