Both musicians were exceptional! They were prompt, professional and played the requested song perfectly. It was such a great experience-I would definitely hire them again!

Amazingly good!

By Rick F. on July 19, 2015

We had the All Stars perform at a memorial service and they were prompt, courteous and professional. They had people clapping and dancing in the aisle and really uplifted the mood, which was exactly what our departed loved one would have wanted. Highly recommended!
