The music provided by your enthusiastic, fun and very talented group was truly enjoyed by everyone! Our gathering helped bring real faces and stories to the devastating impact of enacted and proposed state budget cuts, but Bandemonium helped add a more festive & fun mood for our rally.

The music and spirit that Bandemonium brought to our alternate transportation parade was exactly what was needed to draw attention and helped to get the mesage delivered in a fun way. Thank you!
