Outstanding...outstanding...outstanding. When I was in my kitchen preparing the food and drinks, I could not believe how fantastic the music sounded, and it was coming from my home. My guests were amazed that I found Madoca and Prince, after just recently moving to Ga. Their music and yeoman effort made the party a complete and total success. 200 per cent satisfied. Gig Masters made it happen. Wow, what a great evening.
