“We couldn’t have been happier to have Great Family Reunion play at our wedding! They are by far the best wedding band I’ve ever heard and so many people came up to me at my wedding to tell me that as well. They are were extremely accommodating to our requests and overall they are just a fun group of people! I would HIGHLY recommend using them; there is no better band!”
