This quartet was amazing! Truly the perfect touch for my mom's garden birthday party. The musicians were extremely talented and their sound was great. Everyone was in place before my event started, so the guests arrived to this lovely and lively music that really set the mood for the entire day. They even serenaded the guest of honor with a jazz rendition of Happy Birthday and she LOVED it!!! A heartfelt thanks to all the musicians - can't wait to have you at my next party!!!
