Hiring the Skinny Williams band to play our Wedding was one of the best decisions we've ever made! They were absolutely incredible from start to finish. Our friends and family could not stop raving about how good the music was, and kept asking where we found someone so good. On top of the wonderful music, Skinny is just a very nice guy. He was always very responsive during the planning stages, and made his part of the process easy as pie. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone I know planning a wedding.

The singers were off the chain and my guest are still buzzing with joy. Contracting for a service and paying in full before is awful and not recomended!!!! I loved this band and would gladly use them again, with a mediator for service agreement. My stage was broken down too soon and I was apalled since we were fininshing early anyway, that 3 hours only, benefitted them not me...
