OH WHAT A NIGHT!  Chihuly Garden and Glass and The Space Needle put on a spectacular sold-out NEW Year’s Eve Party. Amazing food, ambience, and a stunning pyro-technic show and digital light show. Music for dancing was darn good too. #happynewyear2019 #chihulygardenandglass #seattlespaceneedle #heyseattle #mbb

You won’t be disappointed

Posted on: October 31st, 2018 by Mbenson

One of the highlights of our wedding was having this band. They were INCREDIBLE. Everyone – younger friends to even older generations – loved them and kept asking us their name and where we found them. They rocked the house and everyone was dancing and having a great time. I couldn’t have been happier with our decision to hire them for our wedding. Everything was perfect from the ceremony piano to the dinner trio for light background music, to the reception, and all the MC’ing in between was top notch. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.  – Katelyn, 10/13/18.
