Thank you Kim,
The band received rave reviews, thank you for being part of our event! This was my first year working on the event (I just joined HAP last March) so I am not sure what the history has been. I will definitely reach out to you again next year if we are given the green light to have the party again in 2015. Thanks for doing such a terrific job.
We were so pleased with L'USA! They were so professional and courteous, but were also great entertainers with lots of energy. Our guests could not say enough great things about them - we danced all night. The band took only 2 short breaks during their four hour show. They were amazing!
I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how impressed my fiance and I were of your performance at our friends' (Matz) wedding. So! When we started to look for bands for our own wedding, we immediately thought of LUSA.
I just wanted to send you a note to THANK YOU again for everything. L’USA was wonderful! You were wonderful! I have had so many people that were at the wedding tell me how amazing the band was. I’ve gotten multiple “that was the best band I’ve ever heard at a wedding” comments. The bartender kept dancing behind the bar and also made the comment that you guys were the best band he’s ever seen at St. John’s. It was a great night – everything was perfect and I was so thrilled to work with you.
Thank you! We had a wonderful time and have received so many accolades for choosing L’USA for our event band. You were all wonderful and truly a pleasure to work with from day one and throughout the entire evening. Please extend my deepest appreciation to everyone in your group and I’ll be in touch again soon. Also, I’ve had several people request your information, so I’m passing it along. Hopefully you’ll get some calls for performances.
Kim, people are still all talking and raving about the wedding and THE BAND! It was fantastic. The closing set was so fantastic and emotional, I will cherish it forever!
Well it is over and it could not have been more outstanding! Newsmaker made the night. From beginning to end (and I mean the final song), the dance floor was packed. My guests never danced so much in their life. I had numerous messages the next day telling me “the best band ever!” Some people had to take Advil from dancing so much and being sore. I cannot thank Perry Joseph and the entire band for what they gave us that night. The quality of sound the (saxophone player is awesome) the singers and the bands ability to keep the party going is on a different level than I have ever experienced before. Additionally, Perry Joseph was wonderful to work with. Professional, organized and wanting to make sure he pleased us completely. On all levels, Newsmaker hit it out of the park! There is not a single thing they could have improved. So when people call you for suggestions, know that Newsmaker represents the best in bands. Thanks for referring us to them. It was a happy, wonderful celebration that I will never forget.
How does a small town family (groom's side) and a big city girl (bride's family) get together and get along together for the first time at their wedding? The answer to this question is through Music. We were lucky enough to have booked the band Persuasion to play (from recommendations ) at our daughter's Wedding. Not only were they an amazing band but their vocals were spot on. They were able to get two complete families dancing together and having the time of their lives from the beginning of our event until the end. They were professional, looked amazing, and extremely talented. I would without hesitation recommend this band to any and all who want to have a fantastic time at their event.
Wanted to take a few minutes after the dust settled to tell you how wonderful our experience was with Perry and the Newsmaker Band. They rocked the house and we couldn’t have been more happy with their performance. They got everyone on the dance floor to surround Adam and I as we entered for our first dance and the night just got better from there. Perry MC-ed the event perfectly. He even got my Husband to serenade me in front of all our guests – this was truly an unforgettable moment. Everyone was raving at how great the band was and we really had a great dance party. Not to mention how easy it was to coordinate the logistics with Perry. Can’t rave enough about how great they sounded and the energy they brought to our wedding. We would highly recommend them to all our friends and family. Thanks!
I meant to write sooner, and I hope my delay doesn't diminish what I have to say. Kim, thank you soooooooo much for recommending Newsmaker for our wedding. They were absolutely PERFECT for the occasion. The compliments have been pouring in this past month since the wedding. Everyone wants to know where we found our amazing band The dance floor was packed all night long; I think people danced until they couldn't dance anymore, lol Perry was wonderful to work with and is a real asset to the company. He really made it a point to know all the details of our wedding day, right down to the crazy last names of our wedding party (he got every single one right too!). Perry, thank you so much for all your hard work to make our special day so memorable. Brett and I couldn't be happier!!!
Just a quick note to update you about Jill’s wedding this past Friday. First, Backstreet Horns was unquestionably, the hit of the event. The food was good, the ceremony was nice but the music was amazing. Bob Jensen is wonderful to work with, low maintenance and our experience with the band was first rate. It was a true pleasure to have them performing for the wedding. Everyone commented about the band multiple times and complimented us for selecting them to perform.
Hi Sandee, I just got back from my honeymoon and wanted to write you regarding Bob Jensen and Skyline and the Backstreet Horns (SBH) at our wedding on May 24th. I was expecting them to be good and give us a good performance, but we did not get a good performance… we got a great performance! And great may be an understatement. They were phenomenal. We got compliments from almost every guest on the energy level and the talent brought forth by SBH. My friends and family were on the dance floor all night. They did an amazing job of sensing when the crowd was growing tired and would switch up songs or genres to get people back. I have never been to a wedding with a band that was anywhere close to the level of amazing given to us by SBH. It was the single best highlight of our reception. Our wedding song was beautifully sung and performed, as well as the other songs we requested. Everything for their entire four hours was amazing. I have no negative things to say. I think they should be at every wedding. If I had to grade them, A+ is the only letter that would do.
Please let me know if there is anything else you want me to do or say to rave about them, as I strongly believe that they are a world class act and consider myself lucky to have had them perform at my wedding. Thanks again for all your help and hard work!
It’s been awhile and I apologize for the delayed email but I wanted to personally thank you and Skyline and the Backstreet Horns for an amazing night during our wedding on July 7, 2012. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, to this day still can’t stop talking about the band and how great they were.
Also, thank you so much for working on the outline with me for the reception. Everything went smoothly (from what I know, haha) and the night was perfect.
Once again Thank you Thank you THANK YOU.
Thank you would never be enough. You guys made our wedding ROCK. Thank you for everything. You guys are truly so incredible. The music was better than I imagined.
Thanks for making our wedding wonderful!!!
Charlie and I wanted to send you and your band a huge thanks - what an unreal night! Your band did an outstanding job! It was perfect and the crowd was so into it. Most of our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. The crowd involvement was just perfect as well as the song selections. Amazing energy from every member from your band especially the lead gals. We’ve received awesome feedback about you guys and know you’ll get a lot of referrals when the time comes for them. Thank you for helping to make that the best night of our lives - we had a riot with your band!! Such a blast – truly helped set the tone for the rest of the night! A night we’ll never forget and cherish forever – I hope your band had a fabulous time with us, and our family and friends at meadow brook! Thanks again!!!
I just wanted to thank you for the great job that you and L'USA did at Megan and Ryan's wedding Saturday night. From the moment that we met you last January we felt totally confident that we were in great hands and never once worried that you wouldn't deliver as promised. Being in the business that I am I know how important the entertainment portion is - I think Ryan thought I was crazy when I started working on the band immediately, but totally understood Saturday night why it was so important. You kept the night moving along in a professional and entertaining way - we got so many compliments about you guys and we'll make sure to pass along your information to anyone who asks. Thanks again and hope that we run into you and L'USA again.
Thanks Kim for doing such a fabulous job! We have had so many compliments on "the band"! I just dropped Nicole and Tim off at the airport for their honeymoon to Hawaii! I will call you with my debit card number in a bit. That last journey song with them on stage will go down in family history 🙂
The band was great, everyone comment on the quality of the performance and I would like to thank you on behalf of myself and the BLET for making our celebration one to remember, nice job to everyone in L'USA!
