Private PartyReviewed on September 25, 2017From Front Royal, VA

My wife and I recently held a private social event for roughly 100 people at our home. The event entitled Prohibition 2017 was a total success because of Iva Jean Ambush and the Ambuscade crew of Terry, Jeffrey, John and Jimmy. They were great to work with from the start, ensuring we would be satisfied with the songs selected, arrived early to set-up and than blew away the folks attending with their outstanding musical talents. I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE! As our social will be an annual event, I have already asked Iva and her group to be ready for next year's event. I would not think of hiring anyone else. Why not go with the best....
