My birthday party was a huge success due to the music provided by The Gummy Sharks.. The dance floor was at times overflowing with guests as they enjoyed the music of their generation. It was an 80th birthday party, and guests ages ranged from 40 to 85 and everyone enjoyed moving to the music.
Response from The Gummy Sharks:
Thank you so much. We had a great time and thanks again for having The Gummy Sharks at your party to be part of your special day
Price Range: $500 and up
