Performing everywhere from corporate events to outdoor festivals to weddings, Concrete often uses their talent to help with marriage proposals -- and have a 100% success rate! We are the perfect surprise. =)
We hired Concrete to sing at our son's rehearsal dinner. Not only were they a dream to work with - very responsive, on time, etc. - they were amazingly talented. The singers took my breath away! Everyone commented on how excellent they were. Concrete arranged songs just for us outside of their regular repertory, and they were just fabulous. I can't say enough wonderful things about Concrete! They made our event really special! Thank you, Catherine!
Concrete surprise my husband with a performance on our anniversary and did a wonderful job. I was very impressed!
An absolute pleasure to have these guys sing for my surprise marriage proposal. They couldn't have been more courteous, patient and prepared. They braved the cold and improvised seamlessly when the plan went slightly off schedule. I'd recommend these guys to anyone for any occasion.
Great performance, kind people, easy to work with!
Hiring 'Concrete' was the best decision I could have made for my surprise proposal. They were delightful, gracious, and eager to help me make my day special. With all of the worries I had planning my event, they were never one of them. Since the beginning, they were always prompt and eager to help me coordinate the planning of the event, choosing of the song, and rehearsing to make sure everything goes just right. The day went off without a hitch and their beautiful, breathtaking performance brought myself and my fiance to tears. If you're considering this group for your event, just know they're up to the task!
We have hired Concrete to sing custom songs along with some others from their repertoire at 2 different events, and they are excellent! Can't say enough good things. We look forward to hiring them again the future, and recommend them highly.
Amazing! That's all I can say. I asked the group to surprise my girlfriend for Valentine's Day, by serenading her, unannounced, at her apartment. The plan worked like a dream, with my girlfriend making her way to her building's reception area to 'pick up a large parcel', only to be surprised with a song from the group. It was beautiful, it was magical, it was perfect. Thank you Concrete.
