Ernest and his band were so nice and played the genre and songs we liked. They even played a song for our second line- we loved them! Definitely recommend!

Group was up and dancing so I suspect that everyone was pleased with the band and the music that was being played.

Our attendees were from all over the USA and we wanted a band which covered the spectrum of music from the New Orleans area, as well as a mix of popular music from the 60s & 70s. Pooyai exceeded all our expectations playing rock and roll, country, blues, jazz, Zydeco and swamp pop. Lots of crowd interaction as well as chair dancing going on! Although not the sole motivation, they were extremely reasonable in pricing and willing to work within our budget. We had very positive feedback from our group and highly recommend Pooyai!
