“We knew right away that we wanted Laurence to play at our wedding the first time we heard him perform at our local restaurant (Trulucks), he was the reason we came back each week. Laurence is a true professional and a terrific artist. Laurence and his band created the perfect ambience for our outdoor spring wedding, adapting to the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and well into the night. We thank him for entertaining all of our guests and making it a wonderfully memorable evening."
