Absolutely made our party a monumental success. Everyone was so very impressed by their musical ability and professionalism. Guests raved about the great music, and throughout the party, kept asking me how I was able to find and book such a great band. My cousin joked about having to come up with an excuse for a party just so she could book Infrared to play! Thank you, thank you Infrared. You are musicians extraordinaire!!! P.S. Dad says in ten years when he turns 100, he wants you to come back and play
