Thank you to Judy and the Happy Wanderers. They are excellent musicians and sound fabulous together. They were very professional, accommodating, low maintenance to work with. I found them on this site and highly recommend hiring them!!

The Happy Wanderers were a big hit! Everyone enjoyed their performance and shared that having them as part of the event made celebrating my Dad's 85th birthday perfect.
