We had a retirement party for my husband after 35 years as a Firefighter. Adrain Xavier was fantastic to work with. He was timely and responsive when we were planning the event and his price was really reasonable for what you get. The band was absolutely incredible. We asked them to play reggae music and it could not have been better. They are so talented! They also engaged our guests from the stage to congratulate Craig. I highly recommend Adrain Xavier!
Easy to work with, would certainly hire again
