"Rich, We wanted to extend our thanks to you and the band for providing such excellent music for our wedding and reception. We absolutely loved the music - it was perfect during the wedding, cocktail hour and reception. So many guests were impressed and asked about the Swingset. My brother's company has booked you for the Seahawk Stadium grand opening and was happy to have previewed you at our wedding. Our wedding would not have been the same without such great music, and we truly appreciate your professionalism and talent."
