Events & Moore
I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Kim & Scott for many years right here in East Lansing. They are truly the one of the most down-to-earth, easy-going, good-natured and friendliest couples you'll ever meet. They both are very skilled at their crafts and do excellent work. They have an amazing family unit and are very dedicated to the community. I highly recommend Moore Voices & Events.
