Loved that Adam is both a musician and a DJ! He was able to play acoustic for our ceremony and then turn our reception into a party as a DJ. Took the decision of band or DJ completely out of the equation because he is truly the best of both worlds. He was easy to work with about song choice and various other customizations. He also MC'ed our reception and kept everything flowing. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician and/or DJ.

During the preparations for our wedding in 2012, we received recommendations about the beautiful and talented Jazz vocalist/songwriter, Gabriela Martina, from friends of ours. After a fantastic evening at a jazz club in New York and a short meeting with Gabriela Martina, our choice was made right then and there! We just wanted HER for this special day in our life!!! And it was definitively the right decision! Our song requests for the wedding ceremony such as our favorite love songs from stars like Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Bette Middler etc. were not a problem at all for Gabriela Martina and she adjusted her repertoire wonderfully and seemed very accommodating to our wishes. People sat with tearful eyes and deeply touched hearts during the whole ceremony. I will never forget this moment in my life. We asked RED VELVET SOUNDS to play some more smooth jazz, light swing music while our guests were having dinner and later for the party they came out with funky, groovy and soulful songs that fit perfect! They seemed very open and flexible in terms of music genre and cleary - we had a blast!Thanks RED VELVET SOUNDS for a very professional performance in any way and your wonderful voice, Gabriela Martina: you guys made our big day unforgettable for everyone!

Diane assembled a string quartet for my wedding that performed beautifully. I received so many compliments from my guests about them. Beyond the overall quality, I greatly appreciated their versatility. They performed classical music for the ceremony and contemporary music for the cocktail reception. And Diane can sing as well. Her vocal performance moved many of our guests to tears and provided "the special moment" that everyone will remember.

About

I have had the opportunity to attend a number of Bucky’s shows starting back in the early 1990s. Bucky combines his outstanding musical talent with Hilarious standup comedy, he creates characters that we all can identify with and includes members of the audience in much of his show. Without any doubt Bucky Lewis is a very funny comedian and talented performer. One of New Hampshire’s best home grown talents.
