The band was FANTASTIC! It really set the tone for our Christmas employee event. We received compliment after compliment for the band. They loved the sound, selection of music, and the passion they displayed in their playing. We would highly recommend the Taimoor Band. Prior to the event, they stayed in contact with us; eliminating any worries or concerns. If we have a party next year, we would not think twice in having them at our event. Thank you for making this our very best party!
