Not only were they accompanying on such short notice, making sure they got a band to play at our venue, but they were prompt, professional and friendly. We loved the group! They were very good. The band was talented and very pleasing to listen to. they even learned a new song for us for a surprise that was a favorite Irish Song of my moms!
