We had an outdoor party at our home memorial weekend 2017. Lenny k and k.r.a. Band was the featured entertainment. At the end of the party all 60 of our guests said they thoroughly enjoyed the music. We had to postpone our trip to the islands but we definitely brought Jamaica to our home. If you want the real deal then you must book this band.
This band was just awesome
