FuneralReviewed on December 18, 2021From Oakland, CA

Mr. Hardiman and the Band played for my Brothers Memorial, and they were OUTSTANDING! unfortunately, time did not permit for them to play longer, but they turned sadness into celebration and our family is closer now. Everybody was WOWED! Thank you Mr. Hardiman and the All Star Band for your performance. This one will go down in History!
