Frankie and the Fabletones were an awesome addition to my sister's 70th surprise birthday party. Many of the guests commented on how much fun it was to hear the "Oldies" performed so well. It is clear that the Band love what they do. Some of the guests plan on booking the Band at future events. Also, Sergei of Frankie and the Fabletones was extremely professional and handled the administrative and business aspects of preparing for the big day graciously and with attention to detail. All around fantastic job by Frankie and each of the Band members. Thanks to all. Everyone from age 2 to 70+ enjoyed your music.
Response from Frankie and The Fabletones:
What a great party for a wonderful woman loved by family and friends and the greater community- an honor and a privilege to perform for all you wonderful people. Thanks so much.
