CLIENT TESTIMONIALS:

The Boomer Band's performance at our New Year's Eve event was absolutely outstanding. We were knocked-out with the selections that were played. You knew exactly what we had in mind based on our brief discussion. The Boomer Band is a classic 50's act and would bring an atmosphere of high energy to any event. I would be happy to recommend The Boomer Band to anyone who may be looking for a 50's Rock n Roll  Band. Thank you and The Boomer Band again for a truly outstanding performance.
