“The band was AWESOME! What a wonderful group of guys. We could not have been happier. We loved how they helped with the opening band who are all still in high school, how to set up and sound the greatest. That warmed my heart that they would help them out so much. Greatest group of people, ever and we will ABSOLUTELY use the band again!! Thank you so much for all your help!” -Brigit, St. Francis Youth Hockey Fundraiser 2015
