I think that the musicians under the employment of Vista hotel can be hired as a wedding band if a party is booked for marriage in the said place.

The hotel looks like an interesting place to visit; I just hope that someday, I can find time to visit it. Aside from the foods and events that if offers, I’m more curious on the hotel’s interior and exterior design.
