I feel like we hit the jackpot with Absinthe. They came to the site of the party (which was in the northwest suburbs, while they live in the southern suburbs) and set everything up the evening before the gig. I was happy to see them take the party as seriously as we did! The party was for over 100 adults with disabilities, and they were such a hit...and thankfully super patient with a few over-enthusiastic party-goers. I can't say enough good things about this group of people - the music was lively and fun, the lights brought fun to the stage, and they enjoyed themselves almost as much, I think, as the party-goers. Highly recommend this bunch.
