The Suyat Band plays a diverse repertoire of music, specializing in top 40 selections and wedding classics! Recordings of The Suyat Band are available on my website, http://www.thesuyatband.com. The Suyat Band ranges from The Suyat Acoustic Duo (2 pieces) up to a 10 piece band!
The Suyat Band is led by its lead vocalist Matthew Suyat, who is the nephew of critically acclaimed vocalist Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, whose album "Facing Future" garnered him worldwide recognition upon its release in 1993.
The Louis Pettinelli Jazz and Pop Group specializes in both jazz selections of The Great American Songbook by artists like Frank Sinatra and Cole Porter, as well as upbeat musical selections for dancing by artists like Michael Jackson and Earth Wind & Fire. The band typically plays jazz selections during the first half of the reception as guests are eating dinner, and then launches into the dance music for the dancing portion of the reception. The Louis Pettinelli Jazz & Pop Group is available anywhere from 5-8 pieces. However, if you're looking for a band that just plays jazz music, the band is available from 1-4 pieces as well.
The Adam Shaber Experience specializes in all types of rock, ranging from classic rock from the Woodstock Era to alternative rock by artists like Greenday. The Adam Shaber Experience is available as small as Adam as a soloist to a 6 piece band. The trio consists of guitar, bass, and drums.
Intrinsic Groove is the most versatile of the bands that Louis Pettinelli Entertainment has to offer. The full configuration of Intrinsic Groove includes a vocal frontline trifecta, with each vocalist having a genre specialization, as well as a horn section and full rhythm section.

The Suyat Band was absolutely incredible when they played our wedding in August! They learned specific songs for us ahead of time which turned out amazing! They traveled out to Connecticut and played our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We had a blast and danced all night. Thank you, Suyat Band!Sent on 04/27/2020

Louis was a pleasure to works with.
Louis was keen to know my desires and expectations when it came to matching my music preferences to the theme of my cocktail wedding reception at the Parker House in Boston. His trio included his base, a keyboard, and a brush snare drum. The light jazz was the perfect background to our intimate gathering of about 50 people. We particularly loved the Sinatra choices. Louis was the ultimate professional in both quality of music and dependability of appearance. I strongly recommend him for that classy and more intimate occasion.Sent on 04/28/2020

Fantastic experience, we would love working with Louis Pettinelli Entertainment for future events. We hired a jazz quartet (singer, bass, drums, and keys) for our Tau 2020 Global Conference reception with around 600 guests. Louis Pentelli's performance for our event was perfect! Louis himself was very professional and easy to work with, especially with our strict schedule for our reception. On the day of our ceremony, the band was again very professional and dressed for the occasion. The singer was phenomenal—one key thing I would like to point out this their variety of music selection. Louis was able to accommodate their music selection to fit our preferences comfortably. So far, it has been two weeks from the event's conclusion, and we have gotten excellent feedback from our guests on how much they loved this band. I would highly recommend their services for any event you have.Sent on 05/07/2020
