Mood Swing orchestra provide AMAZING music!! I got such great feedback from my guests as well. Here are a few I got multiple times:
• This was the most fun I ever had at a wedding!!!
• When you said you were having a live band, I was picturing a few guys and guitars. This was so much better!
• We are just blown away. Haven’t had this much fun dancing in years!
My whole goal for my reception was to make a memorable experience for all of our family and friends to feel like they were really apart of the celebration of our marriage. I wanted a fun party were everyone stayed late and danced all night. Like any bride, I wanted to be able to look back on my big day and feel like it was the most amazing day of my life. And it was. Jerry was absolute amazing to work with and really understood my vision for the wedding. He helped my fiancé and I get exactly the reception we dreamed of. I loved the variety of music he could provide us with, depending upon our personal tastes and the atmosphere we wanted. I am so glad we went with Mood Swings, it made our big day a day I will be dreaming of for the rest of my life.
