I booked So What Kombo for a craw-fish boil/mardi gras themed birthday party. They were absolutely amazing!! They were VERY accommodating, and even learned new mardi gras songs to play at the party! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is interested in booking a jazz band. Everybody at the party loved them - such a great experience!!

So What Kombo ia a talented group who made our event incredible. Booking on such short notice I wasnt sure what to expect... they blew it out of the water. We recieved such positive feedback from our guests. The Event Manager at Glen Annie asked about this group and asked for their card. Thank yo so much for making my father's Celebration of Life Jazz Bruch extra special. Felicia and Chris Archer
