What an incredible wedding band!
I feel like 5 stars doesn't give Ray Colao and his band the credit they deserve! They were absolutely perfect for our wedding night!Sent on 04/09/2019
From the beginning of working with Ray, I was met with professionalism, great communication, flexibility and this overall feeling that Ray wanted the best for us on our wedding day. I truly appreciate the band response time and their promptness. They were quick to answer all of my questions and as a nervous bride, this put so much of my nerves at ease.
On the wedding night, the performance by the band played a major part of transforming our event into a night that will not be forgotten. All of the guests really loved the music and the interaction from Ray and the band. Our guests really loved how Ray got out into the crowd and interacted with everyone! Can't wait to see all of the fun dancing photos from our wedding night!
Thank you again Ray and your band for transforming our wedding into the perfect night!
Ray Colao and The Colao Band's reply:Emilee, it was absolutely our pleasure working with both of you over the last year! Thank you for your attention to detail. Your music selections were wonderful. Your brother in law singing the mother son dance was also a great touch. We thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write this review.
