-Prof. Mike Crain, Sacramento State University
Wow! What a performance/learning experience! Vince and all the group are so knowledgeable about their craft and are really good at helping to make it accessible to the rest of us. They were great with both children and adults alike and took the time to really answer questions. They were a joy to have in our library. Thank you for sharing your gift.
