♫ My wife and I were dead set on finding the perfect band for our wedding. We spent virtually every Friday and Saturday night for two straight months in search of our perfect match. However, that one fateful night at the Palmer House, we realized we had found our band. Trust us, there is NO NEED to do the exhaustive research we conducted. Just, honestly, relax and rely on the AKO. At the wedding, they were beyond fantastic. We hardly talked to anyone who didn't mention how great the band was. Please, listen and learn. You won't find a better band. Take it from two of the AKO's most satisfied customers.
