Louis and his band recently performed at our wedding. Everything about our experience with him and his team exceeded our expectations.Sent on 05/17/2018
In the months leading up to the wedding Louis and I had several check-in conversations to discuss the type of feel my husband and I wanted for the event, special song requests, etc. We asked for several songs outside the traditional set for our ceremony and they performed them beautifully.
We had so many compliments from guests about how wonderful Louis and his band were. The sound was simply perfect.
I would 100% recommend Louis and his band for other weddings or special events. He's wonderful.

Our Wedding Day
These guys are AWESOME! We heard about the Suyat Band about 9 months prior to our wedding when we checked them out at the Salty Whale in Manasquan. They played great there but even BETTER at our wedding. Louis was so good to us making sure the band knew every song that we wanted them to play AND they learned our wedding song for us and played it perfectly. They were so engaging the entire night, I remember taking pictures outside as people are just entering the room and the dance floor was instantly electrified. People danced the ENTIRE NIGHT. Don’t hire these guys if you don’t want dancing at your wedding, seriously, these guys make the party and are a huge part to why our night was so special and successful. We would like to thank The Suyat Band for all of their hard work prepping for our big day and making every minute of our biggest night ever so joyful. We highly recommend them to play on your special day.Sent on 05/10/2019

It was an absolute pleasure hiring Louis Pettinelli Music to perform for my wedding proposal!Sent on 07/15/2018
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!
