So glad we used a harpist through Sweet Harmony! It was so easy getting in touch with Tara anytime I had a question, she was really on top of everything. We had 2 songs that we really wanted to be played, and they were able to add them into the repertoire of song choices. It was such a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony, and I would definitely recommend Sweet Harmony to anyone looking to hire a musician.

I had the pleasure of having Arnie and his violinist friend Joe come play at my wedding recently and we were over the moon about. They were early, they did what they said they'd do, and they did it so well. Firstly, both are very talented musicians that have a huge array of songs to pick from. Arnie even worked with me to incorporate an Indian song into the play list for the day. They played the ceremony music and Arnie helped do they cocktail hour music. One of our guests told us that while in conversation Arnie played a song from their wedding day a long time ago. This kind gesture really touched them and us as well. His playing really set the elegance into the evening. We were very lucky to have found you Arnie and we thank you very much for being able to share your talent with us and be a part of our memories!

I've had the pleasure of working with singer/songwriter Gary Reed both in the studio and live performances. His song list includes many popular tunes that people always enjoy. He is also a very accomplished fingerstyle guitarist with a giant catalog of memorable songs he has written. Anyone attending one of his shows is in for a major treat!

My husband and I hired Patty to play the harp for our wedding ceremony in July 2016. Patty was a dream to work with from start to finish. Not only is she an amazing harpist, but very reliable and was prompt to answer any questions I had. Patty's music added a very special touch and elegance to our ceremony. Our guests could not stop raving!

Ian was a pleasure to work with and played at my outdoor wedding on June 4th. He was on time, always responded to questions or concerns I had and the music was some of the most beautiful violin music I have ever heard. He made the ceremony and I will never be able to thank him properly for making my wedding day so special.

Lisa played beautifully at my wedding. I had not met her before my wedding day, and she was sweet and accommodating considering the trouble my venue was giving us on our wedding day! She played a song my husband and I picked out as I walked down the aisle- my wedding is a big blur, but I remember hearing the song begin to play as I rounded a tree to walk down my 'aisle' and that's when a tear was brought to my eye. She played beautifully during cocktail hour and dinner- I barely got to see her before she slipped away for the night, but I could hear the beautiful music around the grounds as I took care of all of my wedding business. My guests were all super excited by the songs and the cool electric violin. Thanks for everything Lisa!

John is quite the crowd-pleaser in the Philadelphia music scene. He has delighted McGillin's guests time after time. Each performance is unique (as his music library both covers and originals is quite extensive.) We know it's going to be a successful night when he is hosts our Open Mic Night at McGillin's, performs as the featured musician, or simply swings by to jam with other musicians. He has a great attitude and his smile is contagious!

Jeff was excellent. He exceeded our expectation. His voice was so soothing and the music was perfection. The sound level was perfect for the party and he even brought another mic so our guests could chime in. We were SO happy with Jeff. He had a great personality and stayed even longer when requested.

If you want the best and a fabulous professional Entertainer, then I am your man. I am a Variety Singer who has performed in venues across the United States and abroad; as you can see on a Google search. Our Band music ranges from Frank Sinatra to Motown to R&B to Country and more. I have an engaging way of bringing the audiences into our performances; inviting them to clap to the rhythm or sing along when they feel inclined. I grew up in Philadelphia and performed with The Blue Notes, Smokey Robinson, and The Temptations, to name a few. I am the real deal! I am a very polished performer and was trained and mentored by Harry Belafonte, and honed my soulful singing skills, while performing with The Commodores and Lionel Richie. If you want to add some comedy to your event; I can do that as well with my sidekick dummy. My comedy is family-friendly, and I was inspired by Bill Crosby and Flip Wilson. I am also a famous and popular Ventriloquist. There are Ventriloquists and there are Singers, but there are only a few who are doing a combination of both as I am. Our clients include Mayors, Law firms, Corporate companies, Hotel chains, Clubs, Health organizations, and many private clients. The Ernie Fields' Band will bring the PARTY TO YOU!
