We would have the Kansas City Rhythm Kings back in a heartbeat. This was a charity event with over 200 people attending. The comments have been incredible about the band and how wonderful they were. Everyone wants them back for next year's event. Brad was the person I communicated with and he was SO easy to work with and to assure me that their band would be a hit - he was so right - thank you so much for having them available.

We absolutely loved this band for our wedding reception! They got everybody dancing. We had forgotten about dinner music, and they played recorded music for us without us even having to ask. Guests of all ages complimented us on the music choice. They were unbelievably classy and smooth to work with. Thank you!
