We booked Billy and his band to perform their Gypsy Style Jazz for our wedding evening reception and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. The intoxicating energy if their performance appealed to all our guests. Billy was also accommodating and versatilile enough to perform a special request for us as our first dance, originally intended as a duet between billy and our Pianist, Billy and his band were able to arrange the entire peice to include their 5 members with less than 40 minutes reversal time... And the results were spectacular, and a testiment to the outstanding skill these guys possess. A great night and a wonderful band. 5 stars doesn't do them justice!
