An absolutely spectacular band!

Without question the best wedding decision we made was hiring the Louis Pettinelli band for our entertainment 🎶

From the very first interaction when Louis returned my call at 10:30 PM(!!) to begin the process of planning for our daughter’s not-too-far in the future wedding in Basalt, Colorado, which went off spectacularly well, two weeks ago today, Louis was a gem to deal with. Having had a VERY Frustrating experience with another band and their unwillingness/challenges in communicating, we were stunned by how friendly, attentive, thorough, thoughtful, and professional Louis, and in the end, everyone of his band members, were to deal with. He made the entire planning process, which included having to almost daily hound us to provide him song preferences/timing/everything that makes a wedding go off flawlessly, I can’t begin to say how wonderful he was to deal with.

Then there was the MUSIC!!!!! Absolutely unbelievable from beginning to end… The musicians were incredibly professional, arrived promptly, and were completely set up well in advance of the service, AND every single member of our 8 piece band was a delight to deal with. The music for the service, processional and recessional, cocktail hour, and then once we all moved inside to the beautiful antique barn which they nearly lit on FIRE with their energy, the entire evening was perfection! I don’t think for a minute that anyone could sit in their chairs! Since we chose not to have a sit down dinner but passed hors d’oeuvres all night, the only comments that we got the next day were that people left hungry because they couldn’t take a break from the dance floor! It was a good problem to have! I truly can’t even believe how fortunate we were :-)

We couldn’t recommend Louis Pettinelli one bit higher! You’ll see from your first phone call what a delightful experience you’ll have. Put everything in Louis’s hands and you’ll be so glad that you did. Thank you thank you thank you, Louis!!!!

Unbelievable Show!! They made our wedding!

We were nervous hiring any band because you usually don't know who you'll get for vocalists, etc, but Louis Pettinelli Entertainment was incredible! It made our wedding - everybody had such a blast. It was awesome having them play during our ceremony and the dinner as well. Well worth it! Go with LPE! (We were in Madison, WI)

Amazing band, amazing vibes, super accomodating

We were a little skeptical of going with a band that we had not heard in person, yet we were convinced with the responsiveness and reviews that they would be a great fit. I couldn't be happier with this band. We originally did the 7 piece snapshot but last minute decided to upgrade to 10 piece band and they were super flexible and happy to assist with this upgrade. The band did not stop playing the entire time we were there. They were very professional and kept the party going. Our dance floor was packed for the entirety of the wedding. They also learned out first dance song and it was such a special moment for us.

Founder

Hi there!

My name is Louis Pettinelli. I am the founder of Louis Pettinelli Entertainment.

Before starting LPE, I worked as a freelance bassist. I still actively perform as well, and lead many of the LPE ensembles!

My musical background includes years of performance experience, as well as two music degrees (B.A. in music from Rowan University, and M.M. in jazz performance from SUNY Purchase).

I hail from a large Italian-American family of musicians and educators, and have been immersed in music from birth! I began playing trumpet in the 4th grade, and then also learned electric bass in 8th grade. I then started playing upright bass at the age of 17.

Creating Louis Pettinelli Entertainment was the perfect way to combine my entrepreneurial inclinations with my musical aspirations.

Here at LPE, I speak with all of my clients on a personal basis, and consistently deliver top-quality service.
