Party of a lifetime!
I always dreamed of having the TSE Band play at my wedding (my dad was a member 30 years ago when he was still with us)... and my dream came true this past weekend. Al and the band learned "our song" especially for us and it was the perfect moment to start the best party ever. The band was NO DOUBT the highlight of our event and helped to create a fun, festive, and special day that no DJ would have ever been able to do. They engaged my crazy friends and family and everyone's first comment to me was "the band was AMAZING and so much fun".Sent on 07/02/2019
Having a live band should be every bride and grooms #1 decision... and then calling the TSE Band should be the next one.
Thank you to Al, Tino and the whole ensemble for making our special day one we will cherish forever.

I hired this band to play for a holiday party for about 178 guests and couldn't be more pleased to have this band as the dance floor was packed for every song. They played great dance music and some slow music as well. They were professional and got the people up and dancing all night.Sent on 12/09/2019
Working with Al Santoro was a pleasure and he was very accommodating even playing some background music while the guests were having dinner. Then the real partying began with the great sounds of the band, along with Al and Terry singing vocal leads. They even had some smoke clouds that enhanced some songs throughout the night. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Delivered a memorable experience for us and our guests!
When it came to booking music for our wedding, we knew that a live band would make the night memorable and add SO much more to the party. As we started our search for bands in the area, T.S. Ensemble's reputation put them at the top of our list; short story is, we were not disappointed.
We engaged with Al Santoro as the representative from the band, and one thing that was immediately apparent from our discussions was that he and T.S. Ensemble had done so many weddings that they knew exactly what information was and wasn't important. In the planning weeks leading up to the wedding, he made sure to patiently walk through the detailed questionnaire and extensive song list, taking care to clarify names and pronunciations and relations (as they would be providing emcee services). He allayed many of our concerns about our first dance, the schedule we had planned with the venue, and even offered microphone equipment for our outside ceremony for a small fee. When it was time to submit the list of songs that we wanted for them to perform, they assured us that they would use them as inspiration for a fun set on our wedding night. The only small piece of feedback would be to move a lot of their onboarding and paperwork to a more electronic format, as navigating their extensive music list was a bit daunting and manual-intensive.
In the final days before showtime, Al contacted us to coordinate the day-of preparations. In the hustle and bustle of all of the small details coming together, Al knew to stay relevant and quick, so that we could get to the dozens of other things on our plate. The day of the wedding, he walked through the outdoor equipment with one of our guests who would be responsible for the ceremony music, which was a nice bonus. In addition, T.S. Ensemble allowed my wife and I to practice our first dance while they were prepping, which made us feel more like they were "there for us" on our day. Suffice it to say, the rest of the night went off spectacularly; they were jamming and we got dozens of compliments from guests about the live band and how great the song choice was.
I give this detailed accounting of our wedding experience in order to communicate that, when it came down to executing the music of our wedding night, Al Santoro and T.S. Ensemble knew just what to do. They elevated the party for our friends and family, and seem to be experts in the business of entertaining. The professionalism and knowledge they displayed when helping us plan is also something I want to call out for others who are thinking of hiring a live band for their event.
A glowing 5/5 stars from us!Sent on 01/21/2020
