Mamma Coal is THE BEST! Hiring Mamma Coal was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding! It's been weeks since the wedding and my guests are still talking about how amazing the band was. The line dancing was a big hit! Incredible talent aside, Carra is lovely, helpful person. She genuinely cared about making her band and music fit our vision for the wedding. Her follow up and professionalism surpassed my expectations. On many occasions, she had suggestions to make the day more special and flow more smoothly. She even acted as an unofficial wedding coordinator in some respects! I cannot say enough glowing things about her. Do not hesitate to hire Mamma Coal!
Here is what a recent client said about Mamma Coal:
"Mamma Coal performed at an event we hosted in Scottsdale, and we are so happy she did! The band was exceptionally talented and performed fun, upbeat songs and slow, beautiful ballads. We had guests at the party who commented on how they were a "real band" and not the typical band you would hear at an event. They showed off their vocal and musical skills in every song. Not only did they sound great, but they were so easy to work with. From the event planning to the execution, Mamma Coal was always professional, responsive, and warm. We could not have asked for a better partner for our event!"
