We hired Barb and her singer to play at our wedding on Captives island last weekend, Barb played on the beach for the ceremony and then we moved to the reception room, we were very pleased as they accommodated all our requests and were very gracious, just what we needed! Also, throughout the process Barb was very professional and responsive to all of our questions. Thank you so much! Marc and Sara
