    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!
    Planning a wedding in 2020 was very tough and Christina made sure to make it a breeze for us. Highly recommend!

    Pure magic!

    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!

    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!
