"And also by the compliments the band generates. It is not uncommon for the
father of the bride (or other guest) to come up and say something like; "You
guys are F***ing amazing. This is the best wedding band I've ever heard."
Because OKOM in that fashion is swinging, danceable, easy listening MUSIC."

We have heard similar remarks, but many go on to say that they haven't
enjoyed wedding music so much in years because they can talk!!! Playing
acoustic with power only for vocals puts the music "out in the hall", but
doesn't shatter eardrums the way most wedding bands or DJ's do.
