Entertainers of the Year - 2020
If you’re reading this, you’re most likely planning a wedding; we were in the same boat a little more than a year ago. The amount of planning and preparation required to throw the party of the year is indescribable and unimaginably stressful. Now imagine doing so in the midst of a global pandemic...Sent on 10/24/2020
Of all the decision making, the music and entertainment is one of the most important aspects of the night.
After some research, we found the Suyat Band, checked out some of their promo videos and went to one of their live shows; they seemed fun, energetic, and extremely talented.
On the night of our wedding, they were even better; exceeded every expectation and made our night.
We went with the 8 piece band, and it was well worth it.
The entire team was extremely professional and punctual; didn’t miss a beat.
Even to this day, our friends and family talk about how much fun they had, and we definitely have the Suyat Band to thank for that.
This turned out to be an easy choice. We highly recommend the band!

Exceptional service during a challenging time
We had the pleasure of having the jazz quartet from Louis Pettinelli Entertainment at our wedding. Both Louis and the rest of the quartet were extremely flexible as we had to make a venue change in the weeks leading up to the wedding due to covid-19. They were also very accomodating day of with the various schedule shifts. We loved their jazz music selection and were very impressed by the talents of the musicians and vocalist.Sent on 07/18/2020

We hired Louis Pettinelli Entertainment for our wedding which had to be postponed and rescheduled several times due to COVID. Despite this, Louis was extremely flexible throughout all of the changes and updated the contract and pricing as our needs changed. Louis also worked with us to provide sound equipment and helped us to run the AV for the ceremony and reception through his system for a very reasonable cost. My family was not able to attend the wedding due to COVID but Louis helped us to figure out the technology to incorporate them through a video and zoom. Louis arrived several hours before the ceremony to ensure everything was set up on time and him and the band were very professional and put on an excellent performance. Overall, Louis' flexibility, affordability and willingness to go above and beyond to meet our needs helped us greatly and I would happily recommend them to anyone else.Sent on 07/29/2020
