Researched for live band for wedding and A Little Dream Live Music surely did not disappoint! Chloe was prompt in her response and singer+emcee (Jeeyon) with guitarist (Dennis) was funny and they had the fun chemistry together. We had a hiccup in playing our montage twice. Jeeyon not only made it less tense, assisted in changing the programme a little and also managed to change the audience’s attention. After the event, we had many guests asking for their contact. They said this is the first time they listened to wedding live bands and this is like a concert! Overall, my husband and I are glad that we chose A Little Dream Live Music, Jeeyon and Dennis. Best decision ever
