We absolutely LOVED David

I just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know that we absolutely LOVED David and his trio for our wedding!  They were beyond what I could have ever imagined and created such beautiful ambiance for the ceremony and cocktail hour.  Thank you for everything you've done to make our day so special.

The Music was Lovely

Hilton Head Entertainment was wonderful! We worked with Jessica to book a DJ and ceremony musicians for our April 2017 wedding. Bill West, the DJ, was fantastic! Very nice, and he played a wide selection of music that got everyone onto the dance floor. Our ceremony musicians were also wonderful – I have to give a special mention to Dave Kimbell, who played the cello/violin and ukulele - he worked closely with me to ensure that our favorite songs could be played during the ceremony, and he also accompanied a soloist who sang for us. He was very responsive and helpful. And the music was lovely!
