Absolutely amazing! Talented musicians, read and to work to the audience, great set list (with minimal input). We could not have been happier. All our guests were thoroughly impressed. Great communication beforehand as well (the venue had some stipulations around PAT and PLI, easy to resolve with this group). Highly recommended in every regard.

Hired Honey Bee Jazz for our wedding reception. They communicated well and were able to accommodate our request enthusiastically. Vocals and band was just perfect for our occasion.
