We booked the Covers for our reception and they were absolutely amazing! Getting a quote and booking the band was easy, as was communicating with the band. Bruce was always quick to reply to emails or phone calls, and always answered questions/tossed around ideas well. The band was accomodating to our schedule and they were very discreet with setup. They learned the song for our first dance and it was wonderful. The song selection throughout the night was great! Everyone was out on the dance floor the entire night! The only downside was that guests would trickle out during the later band breaks. We had the band select the playlist for band breaks and that was great too. The band members were respectful, professional, and so very sweet. I would hire them again in a heart beat and I think everyone else should too!
The Covers did an amazing job at our wedding reception! Tons of our guests came up to us during the reception and said how great The Covers are, and asked us how we found them. They are tight, talented, on point, and have a great set list and attitude. They even learned our first dance song for us AND the leader, Bruce, let us come by his studio so we could practice our special first dance with him playing the song! He truly went above and beyond. We scored big time with finding them!
We hired reception jazz for our wedding and a month later guests are still talking about what a great band they were. They played a variety of songs and our guests danced the night away despite neither my husband's family or my family being big dancers. Additionally, they allowed my cousin to play a few songs with them on the keyboard which I know meant a lot of my grandma and aunt. I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting entertainment at their reception. It sure beats a DJ!
our guests loved them. we would hire them again. They took requests and knew their music.
My husband's one request to was to have a live jazz trio at the reception and he was thrilled to find Reception Jazz. We had them play for cocktail hour, then added a vocalist for after dinner and it turned out to be a great choice. The band was wonderful to work with and extremely flexible too (their piano player stepped in at the last minute to also play at the ceremony). The vocalist, Rachel Holder, has an AMAZING voice and people were absolutely raving about how great she was. Although we aren't huge dancers, we did do the traditional dances (first dance, father/daughter dance) and were pleasantly surprised at how many people danced throughout the evening to old jazz standards (Louie Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald) and new favorites too (Stevie Wonder and Norah Jones). Many of our guests commented that it was a classy, refreshing change from the wild DJ dance party that happens at many weddings. Very highly recommended!
Reception Jazz provided music for my wedding reception on August 24th, 2010. From the very beginning, Scott (the owner) provided prompt and thorough feedback about all of my questions. We discussed in detail exactly what I wanted for my reception, and his performers carried out our requests with professionalism and good spirits. I received many comments from my guests about how much they enjoyed the music and about how it "made" the reception. Also, the great thing about the jazz music provided by reception jazz is that it is accessible to people from all age groups. I looked into some other jazz groups in the TC area before I came across Reception Jazz, and I believe this is one of the best prices and also one of the best quality ensembles available for a wedding reception.
