    Incredibly talented musicians and so much more! Brought life and energy to our party!

    We were so fortunate to have found Ray Colao and his band for our wedding. Under an unfortunate circumstance we had a last minute cancellation by a wedding entertainer we had previously booked and with only about a month until our wedding weekend we found Ray. He just so happened to have an availability for our wedding weekend and with short notice we booked him and his band, immediately knowing how lucky we were to find them. In hindsight, our last minute change in plans was an absolute blessing in disguise because the performance that Ray and his band put on during our Latin wedding night celebration was unbelievable!! Ray and his band brought the party to life with their energy and spirited performance! He did more than just provide excellent, energetic music, he got the crowd involved and took our celebration to another level. He even brought professional dancers that showcased some incredible salsa moves which was very entertaining to us and our guests! We received so many compliments from our guests that they loved the music and performance during this night of our wedding. Ray is a terrific performer! We couldn’t have been happier with the way the night went and we owe so much of this to Ray and his band! It was exactly what we wanted and more! Thank you so much for being a part of our special weekend, we will always remember you fondly!

    Perfecto from start to finish!

    Guests described the event as “perfect”, and Ray and the band are a big reason why. It started several months before the wedding as Ray and the band auditioned for us - in his living room! Perfect emcee and musicians for the bilingual wedding (groom from Mexico / bride from US). Special song requests were made months in advance, and we were thrilled, and deeply touched, by the arrangements. The groom joined the band on stage late in the evening, bringing the house down with Elvis’ “Falling In Love with You.” Ray as emcee was outstanding, weaving English and Spanish throughout the evening, keeping everyone on the dance floor. Working with professionals who are top of their trade and just great folks was such a treat. I wish we could go hear and dance to them somewhere! Hire Ray, and then relax. Anything dealing with music - ceremony, cocktail hour, wedding party entrance, special dances, open floor dance, couple exit, whatever - Ray will take care of it. Check that box off and relax. Thanks, Ray. With love, The Briells and Palmas.

    Absolutely beautiful music and great energy!

    The band did a wonderful job throughout the entire event. We got so many compliments of how great the band was, and they truly helped create an ambience and energy that we so very much desired. We had so much fun, in large part to them! Would highly recommend them!
