Amazing choice for our wedding!

I first spoke with Laura about a year before our wedding. I’d reached out on their website and Laura suggested a call. She was so professional and friendly on the call and listened to our requirements and put together a package based on that, nothing was too much for them, even when I asked last minute for an early set up, they were super accommodating. We had Laura perform an acoustic set during our reception drinks and it was wonderful and really fit the vibe of the drinks. In the evening we had the band perform all their classics and they had the dance floor filled all night. It was an amazing evening of entertainment and I couldn’t recommend Jupiter Ray enough! All our guests were commenting on how talented the band are and their music choices were spot on. Thank you Laura and team for the amazing day and evening!!
