A little bit of feedback from our clients . . .

I booked Sweet Assassin for my birthday party, and couldn't have made a better decision. I lost track of the people who came up and said, 'What a fantastic band! How did you find them?' I'd highly recommend them for their professionalism, musicianship, and great music choices."
