Tamar and Yuval Havkin

A client once asked me…

 Whether I ever get bored of playing the same songs at every party I do…

Surprisingly, for me, that is never the case.

In every party I feel as if it was my own

Whenever I go on stage, singing and playing,

I watch everyone joining me on the dancefloor,

Dancing and partying,

And that will always send a rush up my body,

Exciting me and pushing me to perform better and create a thrilling atmosphere.

Our band always projects a lively feel to the room,

Setting the tone for a great party.

I always connect to each event and client and feel as if their Simcha is mine –

Looking forward to celebrating with you
