Straight Shooter was a blast!!! Being from Manhattan, KS there wasn't alot of live bands to choose from and we picked Straight Shooter from the LONG list of songs they play and their overall ratings.Their list of songs is extremely extensive and ranges into something that EVERYONE likes to dance to. They kept the party moving way after the my (new!) husband and I did-and everyone is still talking about them!! Their music was great, they sounded amazing (I never heard them live until the night of the wedding)!!! This is the one that will leave you with no doubts when you book them, and will amaze you with their talent at your function!!! Thanks Straight Shooter!!!
