“We knew we wanted to incorporate live music into our wedding and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect musical group to work with. The Sammie Francis Trio was absolutely amazing! They were super helpful and responsive to all our questions and ideas throughout the wedding planning process. They gave us great suggestions for songs to play during the ceremony and learned new songs that we wanted to have played. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to listen to them more during the cocktail hour, because we were busy taking photos. But based on the incredible feedback we received from guests, we know that the Sammie Francis Trio was an absolute hit the entire time they played during our wedding. Having live music play as we each walked down the aisle is a memory we are truly grateful to have. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to work with the Sammie Francis Trio. They made an already wonderful day become truly magical. Thank you so much Sammie Francis Trio! We can’t wait to visit Portland soon and see you all perform!”

“We hired the Sammie Francis Trio for our daughter’s going away to college bash and they were AMAZING! It was a multi-generational crowd and there was something for everyone. Miss Francis is an irrepressible blast of lyric energy and can really swing a Cole Porter or Billie Holiday number. This trio would be ideal for an intimate gathering at a bar or restaurant, or a full-fledged concert, street dance affaire, or wedding. I recommend them highly and will absolutely hire them for my next world-class party.”
