Mike Dangeroux was an absolute hit at the wedding. We had people there from all over the Country and Puerto Rico, and Mike appealed to all. He and the rest of the band members are insanely talented and rocked-it big time. Everyone danced, even the "non-dancers." I highly recommend as he will not disappoint.
Excellent band, very talented. Just not always as courteous and wouldn't turn down the sound. Needed to make that clear upfront.
But, you will love the entertainment they provide.
