336-339-8720Faron, "Everyone loved your performance at the Bear Ball. You guided the guests enthusiastically into the evening providing the perfect atmosphere for our fund raiser. By the time we got to the Bear auction everyone was jovial and enthusiastic and ready to bid on the bears. The amount we raised for the Avery County Humane Society far exceded our expectations and we give you credit for helping to set the stage. The singers were
adorable and all of you bent over backwards to accomodate our wishes. Many people commented that the party felt like the parties of old at GGCC. The Bear Ball was probably a one shot deal but if we decide to do it again you will certainly be at the top of our list. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone."
Cynthia Bullock-------Sedgefield Country Club

Laura Gentry----------Sedgefield Country Club
"Wow! What a wonderful wedding day. You ALL went above and beyond what we expected of you. Your patience, positive attitudes and professionalism were exactly what we needed. It was such a blessing to have folks who love what they do and take such pride in what they do make this day happen for Kristy just as she wanted. I really can't get over how well it all went. I so easily get in a tizzy and especially when I'm tired and nervous, I cry easily. But yesterday, I was able to enjoy everything that was going on around me. I really never felt stressed. What a miracle! I hope it is a long while before I have an event like this to plan, but when the time comes it will be difficult to measure up to what we experienced yesterday. May God Bless Each of You!"

" The band put on a fantastic show. Their stage presence and audience intertaction was second to none. They had the whole park up and dancing. When a light rain shower rolled in , the band did not miss a beat and even had the people up dancin with their umbrellas. We would certainly have UBU back for a future event and highly recommend them to other municipalities looking to book bands for their summer concert series or any other event."
