The PlayThings’s Response:

It was our pleasure! We love it when our clients (and the venues we share) recognize the value of bringing more to the table than 'just music' - even though that's the focus of attention. Glad we could do everything in our power to put you at ease, know that everything was taken care of, and that your guests would enjoy a great time! We look forward to working with you again!

Nice People, on time, played longer than requested, seemed to really get in to the event and participated, some of our guests were even a little rowdy and the band took it in stride and played on. I would highly recommend Playthings for anyone seeking a live band for their event. We are planning on booking The Playthings again for next year!
