They were AMAZING!

5 stars - The Cardinals are Highly Recommended
booked The Cardinals for their Wedding

“The guys were amazing - absolutely loved having them at our wedding. They got the vibe just right and nailed it - the dance floor was packed all night! We were so glad we chose them and have the best memories of the evening. They looked after the tech side of things and were both incredible flexible and professional at the same time. They even came up with our first dance 5 minutes before we did it because we had forgotten to choose a song! thanks so much to you all. We loved it and wish we could do it all again.”
