Wonderful band at a reasonable rate! They were flexible about adding time at the end of the contracted session if need be. Jim was very courteous and pleasant to work with when it came to coordinating everything. The music was great! My husband and I still get comments about how fun our reception was and about how great the music was that the band played. Downtown Sound was even able to throw in a few polkas and waltzes to appease my Polish family.

This band is great, my husband works with the drummer so we had always planned on booking them. We got so many compliments from our guests, even the staff from Mintahoe catering said the band was great.

I still hear comments about the band at my wedding! They were so open to what I wanted and made my wedding reception a hit! I will forever remember the sounds of the evening. The band didn't break at all...they played before the dinner and then after until the wee hours! :)
