The Raybans
Party & Dance Band

"The band was great. We have had lots of positive feedback about them. Also, they were very nice."
Jane Bruner, November 26, 2007

"The band played from 8pm - midnight & the dancefloor was full the whole time. People were on the dancefloor during band breaks waiting for them to return. The children refused to leave early because they wanted to dance. It was great!"
Lee & Sue Denton

"Just a note to tell you that the band (The Raybans) you provided on November 19, 2005 was fantastic. Everyone at ABOTA enjoyed them thoroughly, and I would like to book them for next year's party... Again, my accolades to the band for their politeness , their enthusiasm, and their wonderful music. The made the part a real hit. Best regards."
Carmen S. Mitchell, corporate event
