We absolutely LOVED the band's performance at our wedding party on Saturday. The guys looked and sounded great and were extremely professional. They created the perfect atmosphere for our garden party and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing Dixieland sound and feel!  I'd also like to thank Book Live for a professional and speedy sevice. Despite booking quite late in the day for my event, they were extremely helpful and the result was fantastic. I will definitely use Book Live again and recommend it to my friends!
