The Western Flyers - Country & Western Band - Fort Worth, Texas Event Location: San Antonio, Texas Event Type: Intl. Corporate Conference 14th September 2023
From the moment I heard them on-line, I knew they were the best fit for my client event. Their sound is toe-tapping good and makes for a lively night.They were easy to contact and answered all of my questions on a timely manner. They traveled from north Texas to San Antonio and were early for set-up. They arranged for a local sound person and saved me the hassle. Our event was held at the San Antonio Zoo and Zoo staff requested their information for future possibilities. Besides professional, and incredibly accommodating, they're downright nice and talented. The clients LOVED them too. After dinner, no-one moved, they just sat and enjoyed. Thanks Western Flyers!
