Extremely Professional, passionate and wonderful band. I hired Dani's Trio for my festival/event and I was so impressed by how professional and passionate they were. The band played a wonderful set and we had the best comments from our guests. Dani's Trio would be perfect for any event and will dress/style themselves to fit in with your theme. Perfect for big parties and weddings. Highly recommended, thanks to them for a wonderful performance. I can’t wait to work with you again. Jennifer Allen Hop Stuff Brewery
