Comments from clients:
"Thank you from the one whose broken soul you soothed. Gave me the courage to get up and dance!"
"FYI--Our party was a hit and we loved Bickley. It was such a nice touch to have the steel drum and she was VERY nice! She was professional, courteous and had a great playlist. We are thinking of doing another similar party in the fall and will probably request her again :)"
"I feel like I'm on holiday in the Caribbean!"
