Bride & Groom

As you know we were going to do the " island wedding ". So after deciding to marry here we wanted some of that same vibe. Mickey was an excellent choice and Alex and I really appreciate you finding him for us. He created the perfect atmosphere. He was louder when needed and barely present when the occasion called for that. Amazingly, he learned a song for us in a couple of days time. On top of that a beautiful dude to converse with. I would recommend him to anyone who enjoys the steel drums and that Caribbean feel. Thanks again to you and Mickey for the tunes.  -Dan &Alex T.
