A Professional Group

I booked this group for a Festival we put on. I have to say this was best band not only musically but conduct wise as well. The band does not drink (which is rare when dealing with bands). Very well manored and accommodated a few changes we had in our schedule. We will book them again.

Great Country Band

I have seen this group several times, They are very energetic and was great to hear new music as opposed to older stuff that every band plays. These guys plays just about all the new stuff on the radio. The lead vocalist swoons the ladies and goes out into the audience and they eat it up!!
