It’s All About The Venue! Or Is It?

“You are going where?” … “Alcatraz.”… “Why?”… “Why not!”

Situation: We wanted to give these high performers a night they wouldn’t forget. They are young, work hard and they deserve to have some fun! Need: A fresh, young band that will appeal to millennial and fit with the unique venue. We want high-energy, fun music. We want a party!
