Mike and his band performed for my wedding and were exactly what we were looking for. We requested a swing style group and they were great. My husband and I are both musicians, so we definitely wanted live music. As musicians we were really impressed with how talented and versatile they were. I would highly recommend Michael Purcell and his band for any event. The music was definitely one of the best highlights from our day.

Laura and the band played at my 30th/my dad's 60th birthday party. They were very easy to contact and work with. Everyone at the party loved listening to them play!

The Refrigerators were one of the best decisions we made for our wedding reception! Not only did they save the day when a different band cancelled on me they way out did any expectations I had for our reception entertainment. The Refrigerators were professional, considerate, and were amazing performers! People are still talking about how great the band was (8 months later). My only regret is not booking them in the first place!

The band is exceptional! These are Incredible musicians and vocalists- their music delighted everyone from grandparents to the teenagers. We have never seen a wedding/event band quite like them!

Dave was exceptional as a solo! His performances have always been great. If you need specific songs, Dave can also bring another performer as a Duo band. Will book Dave again in the near future.

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.

The acoustic duo performs very good covers of popular alternative rock songs. Katsura keeps a positive energy and is great to work with. They are very flexible.

Bob Stump and the Road Side Attraction performed for my bridal shower. I was little hesitant because I thought it may not be the right style of music for our "english tea party" inspired bridal shower, but BOY WAS I WRONG! They were FANTASTIC and fit right in with the girls. They are true professionals and their love for music radiates in their performance. They played songs fit for the occasion but with their spin on it making for a creative and unique sound. It couldn't have been better and hiring them was the best decision. I'd hire them again in a heart beat.

Randy came highly recommended from a friend. We have used him for my husband's 40th, a Christmas party and a few corporate events. He and his groups are extremely talented and even play different kinds of music. I will continue to hire him whenever I need a band!

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!

We could not have been happier with using Joe for our party. He is reliable, came early to set up, has a pleasant personality and played very well. The guests complimented him extensively. He brought his own sound equipment and keyboard. I highly recommend him!

Mr. Marcel Blanchet, Mr. Lonnie Gasparini and Mr. Paul Gabriel performed their extraordinary blues with style for us at our graduation party. I was fortunate to be able to book them. These men are serious musicians -- each with an impressive curriculum vitae of playing at major venues and with world-renowned artists over the years. They turned our pool party into a blues festival! They arrived right on time, set up their own lighting and sound system very quickly and professionally, were open to playing inside our home in case it rained, and were extremely helpful with suggestions on how to configure the dancing area in tent and outside on our driveway. They were accommodating regarding requests. They were extremely professional and yet friendly. They got everyone up and dancing, and all evening I heard nothing but compliments about their sound. They played a perfect mix of original pieces with classic selections, and the combination of percussion, Hammond organ and lead guitar was perfect! Their intuition was right on as to what to play to keep the party lively. My husband and I felt proud to treat our guests to an evening of excellent blues in our own backyard! I would recommend these gentlemen to anyone who's looking to create a fabulous blues party experience. Kind thanks for everything, Marcel and the band! We will try to book you again for our next event!!

I've seen the Pleasers perform several times in the last year after hearing rave reviews from my friends about this awesome dance band, and what can I say, they were so right! These guys have such a soulful feel-good vibe and they really get the crowd moving all the while looking super fly and throw-back. My boyfriend and I live in Hudson but we made a special trip down to dance all night at their Valentines show at BSP in Kingston, it was our sweetest Vday so far. I only wish they'd play more In Hudson!! Aaaaand get me some CD's ;) Otherwise we were thoroughly Pleased!!!
