Recognizing the importance of creating an unforgettable reception, Cathy and Alex enlisted the talents of Desert Child, a remarkable Durango band that we absolutely adore working with. With their extraordinary ability to captivate audiences, Desert Child provided a unique and vibrant experience. Their lively mix of favorite covers, performed in an innovative style, breathed new life into the atmosphere. The five-piece band's infectious energy and talent for engaging guests ensured a packed dance floor all night long. I can't say enough about all the amazing events I've done with Desert Child and the raving reviews they get from guests (and venue staff!!) for the fun, lively energy they bring to each event we get to work together.
