WOW! What a night... The MasterBrokers team danced the night away! You guys really did an excellent job. I highly recommend this band to anyone who is looking for a band that will get the feet tapping. My team of 70 guests did not sit down the whole night! I would definately book you guys again. PS I got rave reviews for such a great night, you guys made me look good, thanks again.
