I had the pleasure of booking the Pettinelli Band for a garden party. The musicians showed up long before the scheduled performance and are quite gifted and talented performers. The Band was a big hit. As a result, others have inquired about how to book them for future parties. I would definitely book them again.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Obviously, I cannot thank the band enough for the fabulous job at our wedding this weekend!! I seriously felt like we were having our own private concert with all of our family & friends. The songs were wonderful played and beautifully sung. I seriously cannot think of one song that I did not enjoy. I I did all the corresponding with Rob, he was very helpful every single step of the way, answering any question I had over the past 8 months. The band was very professional, courtesy and polite. I would recommend anyone who wants to have an amazing party (especially a wedding reception) to hire this band!!!! The night was ***AMAZING*** Thank you for everything!! Susan & Matthew Connors

In one word to sum up this band is PHENOMENALl!!! I hired Pristine Raeign for a corporate brunch event that took place at the Four Seasons Inner Harbor Baltimore. I asked for the band to perform the top billboard hits in a post modern jukebox style. I drove to Delaware where they put on a full on performance for me...down to the attire. I was blown away! I hired them immediately and the compensation was very reasonable. Tina the band lead was professional, responsive and was open to all of my suggestions. Super easy to work with. They showed early and was prepared well before start time. Needless to say the crowd LOVED them. The vocalists were on point, drums, pianist, and guitarist were amazing. There was a brass player who played at least 6 different brass instruments and the violists was a delight. I would certainly hire this band again for another event. The hotel also asked for their information to recommend the band to clients for other functions. So did some of our VIPs in attendance. My boss was pleased with the entire brunch and it definitely turned the heads of our VIP clients and executives. Trust me, this band will not disappoint!

Talk about a GREAT TIME BAND!!! I can't say enough about how surprised and pleased I was seeing this band for the first time!! When I say this is a band for ALL ages I truly mean that!! One minute we are dancing to today's Top Hits that my son could even relate to...(You wouldn't think a band could pull off the Cupid Shuffle but think again!!) And next minute we were on the dance floor with my older family members singing "Don't Stop Believing!!!" by Journey... I can't say enough about the whole night with this band!! Never a dull moment and the whole band is enthusiastic in getting the crowd off their feet!!! Every time I hear they are playing a venue I try to rally up my friends and go out for a great night!!! Again...this band ROCKS!!!! Love you guys!!! I'm a forever fan and same goes for my whole family!!! We love you All Tuned Up!!!!! Keep on rockin!

I truly can't begin to say enough wonderful things about this band. The exquisite music speaks for itself. Ron played at my wedding and the entire crowd still speaks about what a class act both he and his orchestra are. He not only had a littany of directions and partial MC-ing to do, but benevolently dealt with my sister who had planned some surprises as well. He is professional, patient, reliable, talented, friendly, accommodating, and downright fun. The band are highly talented musicians and good people. I recommend them highly!
