The expert says…
“Hiring a live band is an extremely popular idea, especially for those couples in search of the continuous flow of high energy and elegance that is sure to WOW the crowd. If you had one chance to dance with your spouse one time as a married couple, do you want it to be to the same recording that was played on the radio for the past 20 years, or do you want it to be a completely unique performance, just for you two?” -Kerwin Felix, KLF Pro Entertainment
