Review by Cara A.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on May 5, 2022From Livermore, CA

Steve was so great to work with and very responsive. We hired his band for a corporate event at Wente and they were a huge hit! He understood our business and was flexible on tailoring to fit that which I loved. Will definitely hire them again in future. Thank you Steve and the rest of the band!

The PlayThings:

Our ability to custom-tailor events for our clients relies heavily on the people we work with, great communication, and managing clear expectations. We were fortunate to get all of these from Cara and team. Excited to work with them again in the future!
