" This band bring a sense of whimsy and musical sophistication to any festive or social occasion. Their timeless sound and style are a complimentary addition to their environment, with or without a stage on which to perform. They are reasonable with their rates and bring a positive energy that feels as though they are as invested in an event as the hosts. I look forward to collaborating with the band as often as possible! "

Eamon Rockey - General Manager, Betony NYC

" The perfect band to set the tone for any event - from polished fundraisers to swank dinner affairs, they consistently bring ambiance, a mellow vibe and a smooth sound to the evening. I’ve worked with them for at least five events and I’ve been thrilled with their music time and time again. Can’t wait to collaborate with them again soon! "

Moira Sedgwick - Senior Manager, Share Our Strength
