Great to work with and a phenomenal band
I cannot say enough good things about Christina and her band. Before the wedding itself, she did an amazing job helping us organize what music we wanted for the ceremony, cocktail hour and of course the reception. She was extremely organized during this process and she made this aspect of our wedding easy to plan and stress free.Sent on 11/27/2019
Christina and her band exceeded any expectations I had for the reception. Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but the energy herself and the band brought that night was electric. We had people on the dance floor from the time they started playing until the very last song. They truly brought an element to our wedding that I'll never forget and always be grateful for. One of the highlights on our wedding night was a member of her band that played the fiddle. He absolutely killed it and was amazing to watch. If you're looking for a wedding band that will bring a great energy to your wedding and is easy to work with, I recommend Christina with the highest regard.
The Christina Kateri Band's reply:Hi Bryant! Oh gosh, how do I even begin to respond to your encouraging words (a bit late on my end)?! You and Gabby had the most *wonderful* wedding celebration and we were just so happy to play a part in that. I look back on your day with so many great memories and it's times like these that I find myself overwhelmingly grateful to be able to do what we do. Hearing from our clients, especially reviews like this, provide so much energy and joy so I thank you for sharing. It's been so fun seeing glimpses of your married life together on social, and I'm so excited to see your future unfold. Cheers to you and your beautiful life!

Incredible to work with and extremely talented!
Christina is an amazing person to work with. My husband was the one mostly in contact with her and she helped walk him through every step of the way. From beginning to end everything was very clear and we always felt like she had the answer to all our questions. We first saw her band perform at Frutig Farms and decided on that day we wanted her to perform at our wedding!Sent on 02/18/2021
Planning a wedding in 2020 was very tough and Christina made sure to make it a breeze for us. Highly recommend!

I wish I could have more than just one wedding (with the same person though lol) so I could work with Christina again and again! That 's how much I LOVE working with her! Her voice and performance is just pure magic! Working with Christina is one of the best decisions I've made for my wedding. She is so professional, organized, patient, responsive, thoughtful, warm... She is just AMAZING! She walked me through the process and helped me figure out what kind of music I like (I was absolutely clueless to begin with). And at the wedding she picked EVERY song right! I can't remember how many times I heard my guests tell me "the band is really great". I want to thank Christina and her band a thousand times for making my night incredible! I will recommend them to anyone in a heart beat!Sent on 10/19/2019
The Christina Kateri Band's reply:T! My feelings are completely mutual. :) I absolutely *loved* working with you to plan out the music for your day. You had me laughing all along and made the process so fun for me. You were a stunning bride and one of my favorite moments was getting to watch you and Jake dance swing to open the dance floor, while we played Olly Murs. Then getting to dance with you myself later in the evening. Everything about your day was exquisite and yes, it would be wonderful to get to do it over and over again! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and for sharing about your experience. We all loved celebrating with you! Cheers to you and Jake, and your many years of happiness ahead! XoX!
