"The Carolina Trio provided the perfect touch to top off our daughter's beach wedding. The musicians' willingness to perform on the beach and their outstanding ability to play the pieces we needed was beyond compare. The group continued to entertain during our cocktail hour and provided the perfect backdrop for this celebration. Anyone who can book this group for their event is fortunate indeed."
