Mardi Gras Birthday Party... Santa Barbara

(Private event)

We've now Added some  new "Mardi Gras" Favorites to our Song List !!

FEEDBACK: Craw-Fish Boil / Mardi Gras themed Birthday Party 

SO WHAT ko ROCKS AGAIN...
 

I booked So What Kombo for a craw-fish boil/mardi gras themed birthday party. They were absolutely amazing!! They were VERY accommodating, and even learned new mardi gras songs to play at the party! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is interested in booking a jazz band. Everybody at the party loved them - such a great experience!!  - Jennifer S - 2/22/14
