This was an amazing band to work with for my daughter's wedding. From the first online contact Richie was a dream to work with. He worked with his band and made a special effort to learn new songs for the Bride and Groom's First Dance and the Father and Daughter dance as well. They drove a good ways to provide top-notch music, set up an amazing light system, took requests from all of our family and friends and worked hard all night to provide a memorable experience. I highly recommend The Fender Benders for any type of event. My daughter's wedding will always be thought of as the Wedding with the Great Band. Thank you Richie, David, Pete, David and Ned.
We all had a great time. Sincerely, Karen & Cliff Sumner. July 29, 2013
