    John made us feel at ease by talking through the timeline leading up to the wedding and did a perfect job as MC — fun, professional, and classy.

    All of our guests cannot stop remarking about what a fun wedding we had and how good the band was.

    John was extremely professional and organized the whole time. He made sure to hit all of our "must play songs" in and even sang two songs in Italian! It's amazing to hear the range and skill level of the band.

    I thought the highlight of the night was when Tony got on stage like he was at a AC/DC concert and almost did a stage dive in the middle of the guitar solo.  The look on your face was priceless!!.."
