Saw them a few times

The three times I have seen them, Breaking Character has always been awesome. They have a great song list and play stuff that most other cover bands don't play. It doesn't take long before a lot of people start dancing

Awesome performance at our Graduation Party

Breaking Character was exactly what I was looking for! They are extremely polite, courteous and professional. They showed up early and gave my daughter the performance of a lifetime. I highly recommend them. I am looking forward to creating another event so I can hire them again!
