To whom it may concern,
I worked with Acacia Road last September on a live project incorporating the band and various students of Marc Fargeot. The evening ran extremely smoothly without a hitch and on schedule to the minute, the band were extremely professional, well rehearsed and competent as musicians, their repertoire was very family friendly and lively, a good mix of songs to please any audience. I even have a copy of the gig in my personal music collection as their take on some of the songs was very good. Acacia Road are accomplished musicians who play cover songs to an extremely high standard but more importantly they have their feet on the ground and are extremely professional, courteous and polite to both audiences and sound crew alike. A complete pleasure working with them.
