    Absolutely magical!

    Christina and her band were absolutely amazing! Christina was so great to work with leading up to our big day - making sure she knew what we liked, didn’t like, and any special requests we had. She was so organized, which helped me so much because I knew that I didn’t have to worry about the music!

    On our wedding day, she brought so much energy and pure joy into her work, it made our night so special! The dance floor was packed the entire evening and that’s because she played such great music that kept everyone engaged and wanting to keep the night going. We truly didn’t want it to end! I loved working with Christina and her band and would do it all over again if I could!! Thank you!!

    The Christina Kateri Band's reply:

    I'm smiling wider than I can articulate. :) Chelsea, your and Sri's wedding will go down in my books as a wishful standard for-ev-er. Your family was an absolute dream to team up with and seeing how beautifully the American and Indian cultures, along with your individual family traditions, were infused in every part of the day was breathtaking. The joy on all your faces as we celebrated and danced is one of my favorite memories from your wedding. I'm *so* grateful you chose my band for your big day and thank you from the bottom of my heart! I wish you and Sri a lifetime of happiness and love! XoX

    Christina is fantastic and reliable!

    I'm a wedding planner from Toronto and we were planning a fabulous Michigan wedding from out of country last summer. Live music throughout the day was a huge priority for our clients. The moment I spoke with Christina for the first time I knew she was exactly who we were looking for. Professional, warm, friendly, accommodating, and helpful at every turn. She was thorough throughout all of the planning stages which was such a stress saver for everyone involved.
    On the actual wedding day Christina and her team followed through and exceeded our expectations. Both musically and logistically. We hope we can get back to Michigan for another event with her soon! We can't thank you enough for everything! Fabulous doesn't even begin to describe our experience!

    The Christina Kateri Band's reply:

    Melissa! I can't express enough what a dream it was to work with you and Morgan. :) I loved getting to know you better and join forces to help make A + J's wedding day unforgettable. I wish I could partner with Lustre Events on all of the events my band plays, and I truly hope the opportunity presents itself again! Until then, happy planning and thank you!
