I never met Jill before the day my daughter got married. I'm an out of town MOB and Jill was excellent with communicating with both the bride and me. Music was FABULOUS! Her quartet was prompt, talented and very accommodating. I highly recommend Jill! Thank you for making the day more beautiful with your music!
