Brent provided us with the most amazing music throughout our day. We received many compliments from our guests on his work, and we of course agree with them! Brent contributed in making our day run smoothy and effectively and it was everything and more that we could have asked for. Brent kept us up to date with how the timings for everything would run on the day, and was happy to play the requests we had. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the service he gave us, we would highly reccomend him! It was the perfect, unique touch to our wedding day! Thank you once again, Katie and Kyle Rough
