Best Wedding Band EVER

Honestly guys, look no further. We LOVED Crescendo Amelia. They were so easy to work with and so talented! They have such a great selection of music. We wanted mostly classic songs with some fun modern ones thrown in and they hit the nail on the head! 10/10 would recommend!

Amazing People and Musicians!

Crescendo was an absolute delight to have at our event. Between the professionalism of their whole band and their friendliness with us, we really couldn鈥檛 have asked for better people. Their music was excellent, and set the tone for the best show we could have asked for!

Since the sixth grade, I've been performing music. Great music has always been my passion. As a bandleader & performer with over 20 years of experience, I have never been more proud of our musicians than I am today. Truly a world class ensemble with some of the brightest, kindest & talented individuals- I am lucky to call them my friends. Performing weddings together has always been an extra special occasion for us, and there truly is nothing quite like watching a newly wed couple take the stage for their first dance.

I absolutley love the feeling of being on stage & interacting with the audience. Dancers are my absolute favorite, the energy is just magic. Theatre is my first love, but I'll never forget the first time I sang on-stage during a play and the drummer from Crescendo Amelia came up to me and told me I should sing with them. He was right, obviosly. Seven years now and I've neverr looked back! Working with wedding clients is my favorite, I'm big on personal touches, style, aethetics and indivudual tastes, so make sure you let me know exactly what you want. I'll make it happen for you!
