    John has a sense of knowing exactly the songs the guests are vibing to and chooses the best music to keep up the momentum.

    They were kind, professional, excellent with communication and sounded amazing.

    He really made everyone feel at ease and have the best time dancing"

  • "We had SO much fun at the wedding. You and your band were absolutely amazing. Your set list was exactly what I wanted, all my friends and family loved it. Love Hall and Oates, 80's, crazy......

    Every vendor we had at the wedding said it was absolutely the most insane party they have seen. I had 30 people come up to me saying how much did it cost to get you guys..... And I still have the music in my head right now.

    Absolutely amazing, it was one of the best weddings I have ever experienced. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. If I ever have a party in the near future you will be my first call. Amy and I thank you" -- Patrick Shepard

  • "...we could not have been happier with you and your band. Our family and friends are still talking about how much fun the band was.

    I thought you would like what we did when you performed Bohemian Rhapsody haha. Our group is also just a bit silly so it is the perfect storm when you add an open bar to the mix.

    We did have a videographer and he said he got us both playing with the band on Don't Stop Believing!

    and Many thanks for helping us coordinate everything. It was a true success and we had an awesome time!
