KD danceband played for my 60th Birthday.They were wonderful, professional, seemless, effortless.Music was lovely and they adapted to the audience.Friendly musicians from a range of backgrounds.I have one complaint,it was all over too soon.Many friends said what a god band they were.Even the venue staff were interested in possibly hiring them.I would be over the moon to have them play for me again!
