    David, Catie and the rest of team! You guys were amazing!!!! Thank you so much to bring the 1920' music and performance at the Yeung Sing. We received so must positive comments! It is certainly something different then our normal New Year Eve music choice. But you guys made most of the guest up and dancing. It was beautiful! Thank you so much! Nothing is too much trouble and you guys just a bunch of lovely and professional people!
