Mac, Steve and Shura, played saxophone, keys and bass in attendance to a Wake. Without guide they read the room, playing a beautiful selection of smooth jazz, creating a peaceful atmosphere during a painful time. If your looking to book this band, do so comfortably, as they were respectful, on time and professional!! Top Notch Musicians and Sound" Rated 5 Stars

Thank you Steve and Kevin for doing such an amazing job. I was so impressed with how professional but how relaxed you were. So many of my guest told me they really loved your music!
