What Our Customers Are Saying

I just wanted to drop a quick note and tell that James and Sylvia were phenomenal Thursday! I just wish I had more residents up and interested in coming! There were more staff than residents that attended. We were having such a great time! The two of them are very engaging and entertaining,… not to mention the talent! I was 100% pleased. I will definitely book them again in the future and I highly recommend them! I can’t thank you enough for finding them and making this a very special day for us.
