Just wanted to say thanks once again. Class of 97 played at our wedding on 10.6.23 the songs they played kept everyone on the dance floor the atmosphere was amazing. They learnt our first dance song even tho it wasn't on their list of songs. I would highly recommend to any of my friends that are looking for a band.
