I was nervous about hiring a group I had never heard live before. Lydia Marks is a dream to work with. She was very professional. She returned my emails and phone calls immediately. She arranged the musicians based on the needs for my event. The price was affordable. She arrived on time and her and the musicians were professionally dressed. She has an amazing voice and the musicians were very talented. I highly recommend and may use again in the future!
