The Band was an instant hit at our Wedding Event. At least five guests commented that they didn't believe the band could sound so original - just like the artist of the songs they were singing. They had to do a double take! Our group was a lively group and the band kept every body in the house on their feet. My Mother, who is a Gospel Music Lover, made distinctive good comments about the originality of the band. Music was on point! The ELOVEATION BAND was AWESOME! We appreciate you guys coming through like you did. Rikko & Band Members, you're the best! Keep it up ! We expect to hear you making more Noise in the future. Excellent Band! Noland & Sand Hicks
