We have dozens of testimonials from our former clients to back up what we are saying, take a look at a couple:
Several years ago, I heard Joanne and her band perform at a bar in Martha’s Vineyard. We had the most wonderful time that night – everyone danced till the bar closed. Being an event planner in New York, I took Joanne’s card and put it away, not knowing if I’d ever have the chance to use her. Years later, after getting engaged, I reached out to Joanne and was able to secure her and her band to come from to the north west corner of Connecticut for our wedding reception.
We hadn’t heard Joanne and her band perform in years, but they did not disappoint. Over the years, I have planned many parties and used a variety of bands and performers, and I have never experienced anything like what Joanne and her band did at our wedding. They had everyone, and mean EVERYONE on the dance floor. From children to guests in their 80s, people couldn’t help but dance. And on top of the hours of performing, they went above and beyond and surprised me by working with my father on a special musical toast he wrote for my fiancé and me.
