"We had Ryan and his band play at our wedding recently. They were fantastic!! They got the crowd going. Ryan was great to deal with along the process. We had to reschedule due to COVID and that wasn’t a drama. We had many guests commenting on how great the band was. Thank you Ryan and team for the great music provided at our wedding. We would highly recommend you legends!!"."
