Mary is warm, smart and professional. She was very quick to respond to questions I had about booking her band for my wedding. At the event, they sounded great and were so much fun to watch! I can't say enough about The O-Tones. My friend Dana booked them after seeing them at my wedding and I think it's safe to say she had the same experience.

My wedding was in West Haven, CT on May 30, 2015. Edward is the BEST! He is professional, punctual, a people's person, and his fee is very reasonable. He knows how to keep the guests entertained and dancing, he is funny, he is a MC, and knows the right music to choose. Edward made our event stress free, and he went over and beyond to make it a pleasant experience. Thanks so much to you, Edward, and your brother. You were wonderful, and you did such an awesome job with the CDs that you prepared for Nathan and me. If you are looking for the best and an awesome DJ, Edward is the person. Again, thank you for making our event memorable and so much fun. Brenda and Nathan

Hire this band!!!! They were amazing!!! They are such talented musicians and showmen. My wedding reception was unforgettable and I heard it called "epic" and that is mostly thanks to this band. They were also very flexible so they will be up for anything!! They showed up for the outdoor/tented reception and didn't even bat and eye when they had to set up all their equipment on pave stones. I have also seen this band live at a few bars and they took that same energy to our reception. Love this band.

    Erin is simply an all around amazing person! She is so easy to talk to, no pretense, just a normal person with some spectacular talents. Although she always make me laugh, I have not been able to make her comedy shows yet, but it is on the list. Her music however has entraced me from day one. A soulful voice that embodies Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, and Melissa Etheridge, but blended only the way Erin can do. I have had the pleasure to hear her solo several times and she captivates me with her original song "Fall Out" every single time. When with her full band, the sound gets purely bad ass! Just when you think you have heard it all, she belts out Led Zeppelin :-) Huge fan, hands down the best local talent we got.

      I hired Ken to provide musicians for an anniversary party in a New York apartment. I told him I wanted good quality classical musicians who could also play standard "cocktail party" music, and he provided a duo that was fantastic. It was a 2 and a half hour party. I was impressed by his knowledge in asking me what I and my guests would like to hear, and his knowledge about helping me define my terms which were "jazzy" and "standards."

      Avenue Groove was my automatic go-to band for my twin daughter's wedding at the Farmington Club in Farmington, CT last September. They are simply the BEST wedding band I have ever heard (and I am also a professional musician who knows MANY bands!) Their professionalism, tact and warm approach made the announcing in of the wedding party seem like saying hello to your best friends! The wedding party danced their way into the reception hall all the way from the outside gathering spot! Once they started playing, EVERYONE got up to dance and never sat down! This band goes from one song into the next and keeps everyone rocking from beginning to end, making for a PERFECT party for any age crowd! We were SO impressed with them that they are also playing our other twin daughter's wedding this month on August 31st at the Great Hill Country Club in Waterford. There wasn't even a MOMENT'S hesitation when we sat down with my daughter, my future son-in-law and the groom's parents about who to have play their wedding since my future son-in-law's family had also attended another relative of theirs wedding with Avenue Groove playing for that one also (on our recommendation!) The bottom line is that I've been a professional musician for 50 years, played ALL types of music and I can honestly say that there is not a more perfect band for playing a wedding than Avenue Groove if you want the wedding to stay exciting, moving right along and FUN! Oh......and their level of musicianship and sound is second to none also! My wife and I go to hear them all the time also. That's how much we LOVE their music!

      4EverFab is one of the most professional and enjoyable bands to play at my venue, The Simple Man Saloon. Our patrons are always asking me when their next show is. Do yourself a favor and book these guys. They are spot on when it comes to the sound of the Beatles.
