Good music, however I felt they could have interacted with the audience a bit more to liven things up. And even though we asked them to stop for around half an hour so we could do speeches ect, they still insisted on a 10 minute break and did not stay longer even though they had had a half hour break courtesy of us. However that said the music was good and I would use again
