Midnight Hour truly made our wedding day special and memorable for all. Shavin was so easy to work with and helpful with song choices, entrance ideas, and the overall flow of the evening. The band kept everyone on their feet, and even nailed our special request song!! I would recommend booking this band to any future bride & groom for a guaranteed special night.
