We had a wonderful experience working with Murray Hill Talent for our wedding music needs. You were prompt and helpful in coordinating our band/dj combo. The band, Endless Summer, did a nice job setting the mood for our reception during the cocktail hour. DJ Brendan Howard was terrific and played all the right songs at the right times, our guests had a blast and we couldn't have been happier with everything
