I hired Bruce Ling as a strolling fiddle player for a corporate event that was held at a local park and he was a hit!  The client and her guests loved him!

I also referred him to one of my wedding receptions that took place in a park in a beautiful rustic building and Bruce and his group Hawks and Owls played for the reception.  My client was from the Detroit area and asked my assistance in procuring a band for her event.  The client loved Hawks and Owls and said that they had the best time in big part due to the music! 

Bruce and Hawks and Owls are a great live music addition to any corporate or social event!
