The District blew my party away! This all female group has a ton of energy, clear vocals, and had everyone in the house mesmerized while they sang. I was looking for a group to boost the spirits of my family during an especially stressful time. The District delivered! The women shifted everyone from sad to happy in less than 30 seconds with their friendly vibe, upbeat tempo, and cool, hip tunes. It was just what we needed and my party had a great night!
