Vacaville, CaliforniaSep 2018Fundraiser

Michael James System was amazing! Their music was the perfect complement to our Vintage VW Show and Fundraiser. I got a ton of compliments on this year's band selection. They sounded great and their song choices were wonderful. Their communication before the show was superb and they were very easy to plan with. The day of the show, we had some power issues and they just rolled with the punches without a complaint. I can't thank you guys enough for helping to make our event a success and a show to remember.
