My son, best friend and I had one of the best experiences ever! I have been to a number of events, large and small, but for the cost, Ace of Spades did an amazing job of pulling together not only a great show, but experience. The Ace of Spades team does a great job, we felt special, and the music was amazing. We will definitely be back.
