"Having a band for our wedding reception was extremely important to us to really give our guests a good party, and The Ideals turned out to be a perfect choice. We already loved the music, but the band really brought something special to the evening. The range of songs provided something for everyone - our family and friends were dancing through the reception which is exactly what we wanted to happen."
