cmg: We booked The Gambler Express for our wedding in Italy recently. The band were great, they were very professional, sent us on a playlist before the wedding which was exactly what we wanted, came early to set up and then their music was fantastic. Everybody is still talking about the music on the night and how much fun it was. I would highly recommend them as a wedding band. Note - we liked their music on the videos on this site but it is even better live. We spoke with Josh and his colleagues after the wedding and they are all very nice guys. All in all a great experience, thank you The Gambler Express and Stagend.com
THE GAMBLER EXPRESS: Thank you for the great words. It was so good for us too.
