A Note from Heather:
Singing for two lovebirds on the happiest day of their lives is nothing short of thrilling! It's an honor to witness from the bandstand. As a veteran performing artist and a newlywed myself, I love everything about wedding entertainment. I aim to give you a tailored and complete musical experience which means staying in close contact with you and your wedding planner in the months leading up to your special day and making sure you love your wedding music. My band is best known for our "vintage" sound, performing current pop songs with Jazz, Motown, and Funk grooves. Also popular is my straight ahead Jazz combo that plays from the American Songbook, covering artists like Frank Sinatra, Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, and Ella Fitzgerald. PS, I also majored in Opera and play classical piano so hopefully we've got you covered!
I welcome your questions and look forward to making music for your long cherished :BEST DAY EVER!

Heather & her band were the PERFECT choice for our wedding. We have eclectic friends and family and she was able to oblige to all of our requests. Her communication was clear and she communicated with us all the way up until the wedding on changes, requests, scheduling, etc. Beautiful voice, groovy sound, and elegant presence. Really classy!Sent on 03/31/2016

Heather was fantastic. She helped us pick a great selection of music and helped keep a fun romantic atmosphere all night. Highly Recommended.Sent on 04/01/2016
I was so impressed with Heather! She really goes above and beyond and is so talented. She's a great communicator and very easy to work with. She kept in touch with me long before the wedding going over songs and working on logistics and timelines. One of the most impressive moments was on the wedding day when she sang hava nagila. If you've ever heart this song, it speeds up and gets really fast. Heather learned this song just for the couple and when she sang it, it was perfect. You can tell she is really passionate about her singing. She really takes great care and making the couples day special and helping them choose the perfect songs to match their style. She goes above and beyond by learning new songs when needed. I recommend her 100%, you can't go wrong choosing her!
