Terry was great to work with, i even changed the time of performing very late in the game and he was able to acommodate our needs. I was out of the building much of the time taking photos and greeting guests during the cocktail hour that I didn't get to hear them perform much. They had already started packing up when I walked in, but they set back up quickly and Terry remembered my favorite song to play without me even asking! They sounded GREAT and all of my guests loved how it set the tone and got people in a good mood before the wedding started.
