Dear Iris!

Thanks so much for all you did for our engagement party! The orchestra played great music that we all thought was beautiful. My MOTHER was even dancing! You did wonders while planning my party, and I think we worked together well. The band was better than we could have hoped for - Thanks so much! Can't wait for the wedding!

Dear Iris and the Freedom Band,

We can say with all honesty that The Freedom Band is the best wedding band we have ever heard. Everything they played sounded even better than on the video, which was more than we hoped for. We know it was a great band because all of our parents were dancing - and they never do! We really appreciate all you did for us. Thank you for everything.

Scott & Wendy R.

Dear Iris,

The Party Rock Band was even better than we imagined. The video does not do them justice. We danced the whole night long. The lights were really nice and our guests keep telling us how much they liked the band. I think you made a room full of fans last weekend, maybe we will crash your next wedding reception!

We had such an enjoyable night thanks to you. The Essence Band was incredible. Our guests have not stopped talking about Jill and Eddie. Let me tell you, we were waiting for the 80s set and you guys did not let us down. We actually rocked out at our wedding reception! How many people get to say that?! Really, Thank you Iris!
