Country Music Live Band for Party

I thought I'd give it a shot in case you know someone who knows someone.

My soon-to-be and I are signing the papers/tying the knot in the USA - stress-free and no fuss - but, giving in to (understandable) family wishes on both sides, we are planning a big party at nice spot on the lake in my native region (Northern Italy) with friends, family and loved ones who are scattered around the world, but don't mind an Italian holiday This will be in the spring of 2016.

I am pretty much "signed off" on the planning (i.e. I couldn't care less about the color of the tablecloths or what kind of flowers we have in the rooms, or what party favors we give our guests - I trust my mom's and the planner's judgement and frankly I don't give a...), but on two things I put my foot down: good food and a live music band.

Thing is...we like country music. Finding a country music live band in Northern Italy...kind of hard. I found this website: http://www.italiacountry.it/ that I'll be browsing through, but they don't seem to have contact info for bands (I need to check more thoroughly).

I thought maybe you know a good band in Switzerland who would be willing to come play country music for an afternoon-evening black tie party in Italy, and I'd be interested in talking to them/checking them out. I should mention that, due to the nature of the party and our "sophisticated"/picky taste in country music (if there is any such thing!) we'd like professionals, not someone who plays the guitar as a hobby on the weekend. No offense, but we don't want to take any chances - for the right people, we would of course be willing to pay their travel expenses in addition to whatever money we agree. We'd much rather pay someone to come down from Switzerland, if need be, than fly someone over from the USA

Suggestions, tips, etc. welcome!

Check them out. I have only heard them once but thought that they are really good. They play regularly in NW Switzerland.

Thank you! I will check them out. I think they might have demos on the website or youtube.
