Bride & Groom

Hey Ellie! Melanie can echo my comments, but I can't praise the band enough -- they were absolutely fantastic. So many guests remarked about what a great band it was, and so many guests were dancing the ENTIRE time. It was so much fun. Rudi was great to work with -- he learned our first dance song (and they did great playing it!), worked with us on a flexible break schedule, and really did a great job managing the crowd. If there are any other forms or other paperwork to fill out to compliment the band, please let me know. Again, we really loved Peace & Love!

Soiree in Charlotte

They were wonderful! I really had a good time working with them - very easy to talk to and make sure things went smoothly. And the dancefloor was packed by the end of their second song - that is always a good sign!!! Looking forward to working with them on New Years Eve!

The party was a great success. Peace & Love were awesome!! The music was fab and they were a lot of fun. Some of the girls really liked them. lol. I hope they had as much fun as we did. I would highly recommend them for future events as well. The coordinator at the Club was asking about them for next year. I look forward to working with you in the future. We plan on having this fundraiser on an annual basis. Please let the guys know how much we appreciate them helping with our event.
