You want your guests to be entertained,
not overwhelmed.

work very well with other bands and event planners.

Fundraisers for the best nonprofits know that
 happy guests are generous guests. Several nonprofits hold silent auctions or wine tastings, and the music of Take Four makes these events especially rewarding.
Dan is happy to handle light emcee duties, too.
