About Louis Pettinelli Entertainment

Louis Pettinelli Entertainment is a grassroots company that started, like many great things, with a dream. Louis Pettinelli Entertainment was started in 2013 as a small, exclusive company with the overarching purpose of connecting clients with a premium entertainment experience at an affordable price, and has remained that way despite a continually rising wave of success since.

Unlike other agencies, Louis Pettinelli Entertainment maintains a unique and personal connection with every one of its clients throughout the booking process, preparation period leading up to the performance, and most importantly, the performance itself. Every client that books with Louis Pettinelli Entertainment deals directly with Louis himself. There is no sense of being "treated like a dollar sign" with our company. We seek to actualize your performance dreams and expectations from theory into reality. 

Due to this unique approach, Louis Pettinelli Entertainment has become a dominant force in The Tri-State Area for wedding entertainment. 

Louis Pettinelli Entertainment manages the Suyat Band, which is a dynamic top 40 ensemble available for weddings. They specialize in contemporary party favorites by artists like Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, as well as classics by artists like Michael Jackson and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Their singer Matt is from the Hawaiian Isles, and stays true to his cultural roots, which lends The Suyat Band and their music a unique Hawaiian influence. Matt is actually the nephew of Israel Kamakawiwo?ole, whose rendition of the classic “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” left an indelible mark on American pop culture and music.

Louis Pettinelli Entertainment also manages The Louis Pettinelli Jazz and Pop Group, which is a classic ensemble specializing in the music of The Great American Songbook by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Miles Davis. In addition, they also perform the works of pop artists like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye in an authentic and uniquely funky style. 

The Louis Pettinelli Jazz Group is ideal for couples seeking something different than top 40 entertainment for their wedding reception. In addition, The Louis Pettinelli Jazz Group is available in various configurations for wedding cocktail hours. 

Louis Pettinelli Entertainment also offers classical guitar, classical piano, and classical violin and cello services for wedding ceremonies.

It was an absolute pleasure hiring Louis Pettinelli Music to perform for my wedding proposal!

I reached out to Louis with the idea of performing 'Fly Me To The Moon' before I proposed to my girlfriend. He was immediately on board with the idea! I appreciate the time and effort he put into preparing for the performance - we coordinated via audio messages to determine appropriate scale and sent me an instrumental recording of the piano to help me practice. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better trio to work with.

Louis, you made our proposal truly special and I’m so thankful to you, Ian (band leader), and the rest of the musicians for your services!

What a wonderful jazz quartet!
I hired Louis to provide live jazz for the cocktail hour at my daughter’s wedding. I was able to request several favorite songs that they included in their set list. They were fantastic and set the perfect mood. Lou’s was easy to work with and even helped with some appropriate music and sound system for the ceremony when our other arrangements for that fell through at the last minute. I could not have been more pleased and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much!
