Most of them are also committed to the music and performing arts community, and teach at colleges, universities, and conservatories.

Dear Braden, I want to thank GH and Dale for providing an unbelievably memorable performance event at our bridal shower. He arrived  early, was professional in all ways. His performance was spot on. Many thanks to Dale and GH. I will recommend you to friends and family. Thanks again!
