Engagement Party Band
Marc Hoffman made the booking process and day of set-up extremely easy! Everyone absolutely loved their music! He played a mix of jazz and light pop/rock throughout the night that really made the party!Sent on 01/14/2020

Marc Set the Perfect Atmosphere for the Party
Marc is a great musician, that's obvious, but it was his attention to what tone we wanted to set for the party that made him stand out. I've booked a lot of music over the years and Marc's willingness to make sure the night went perfectly was appreciated. Highly recommended.Sent on 11/01/2019

Perfect beach wedding music

Highly skilled professional!
Marc was a great choice for our event! He has a large and wide-ranging repertoire, and was very flexible in his services. He was willing and able to play specific songs that we requested, asked us follow-up questions about our event and about our requests to make sure it was just what we wanted. Marc did a wonderful job accompanying our family member who sang a song - they practiced just a few times together right before the ceremony, and Marc was able to adjust the key quickly and easily to make sure the performance was just right. We were nervous because when we asked Marc for a recording of his accompaniment so our family member could practice to it, he wasn't able to provide one of just the piano portion. But despite that hurdle, they were able to practice efficiently right before the event and it turned out great. Marc is definitely very skilled and we would recommend him to anyone wanting a pianist (with the bonus that he is also a vocalist)!Sent on 10/20/2019
Marc Hoffman's reply:Thank you! Yours was a beautiful ceremony and the pleasure was all mine. I so enjoyed meeting and working with your uncle, too. All the best to you two! - Marc

Very Professional and Pleasant

AMAZING! Highly highly recommended! :)
If i could give Marc 10 stars instead of 5 i would! We had a 100 guests wedding, and the venue was pretty small so we didn't want to have a band but we did want to have live music for some part of the wedding. Marc was the perfect choice! For someone who has never thought about it before...trust me, having a pianist at your wedding is very classy and elegant. I also want to say that wedding planning is so stressful for any bride, and it's so important to find someone who is responsive, flexible, understanding, and professional. Marc is all of these things! He is one of these vendors who make the planning process so much easier. Marc has a list of songs he usually plays BUT he told us we could pick anything we want (any style!) for him to play, and he'd be happy to do it. He even brought his own equipment (he told us he had everything he needed and he could bring it with him!)... again, very flexible! Marc's performance was also VERY beautiful! Thank you Marc for being a part of our special day!!!!Sent on 11/03/2018
Marc Hoffman's reply:Diana - I am truly humbled by this incredible review. Yours was an elegant and very well planned wedding and reception and it was truly a pleasure for me. I can't thank you enough for finding me and for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful wedding celebration. All the best to you two! Thank you - Marc

Excellent Part of our Wedding!
Marc was wonderful and easy to work with. He listened to what we wanted and tailored his performance to fit our wedding and cocktail hour beautifully. Our ceremony music was fantastic and our guests loved the cocktail hour!Sent on 11/04/2018

I have never had to hire a pianist before so I did not know where to start. When I started researching, I came upon Marc's profile and read his positive reviews. Based on his reviews, we booked Marc to play at our wedding on May 27, 2018. Although we never met Marc or even spoke to him on the phone prior to our wedding day, he delivered exceptional and reliable service. We communicated primarily via e-mail. Marc is professional, prompt, and respectful of our song requests. My coordinator even mentioned to me how fast Marc was at replying back to her e-mails. The piano was played so beautifully, I can still hear my song being played as I walked down the aisle. I would not hesitate to contact Marc again if I ever needed a pianist!Sent on 06/04/2018

Marc performed at both our ceremony and reception. We felt so lucky to have found him, because his music set the perfect tone for our celebration. He has his own arrangements and published music which we found on Spotify. But he could perform anything we threw at him. What we didn't realize when we booked him is he's also a vocalist. (Everyone has been to those weddings that had a vocalist who made you cringe.) Marc was a joy to listen to and sang a beautiful love song during our ceremony. The reception was in the gardens, so we were shooting for old love songs and jazzy romantics which Marc pulled off easily.Sent on 05/07/2018
Marc is the ultimate professional. I never had to meet or even talk with him during the months we were planning. Everything was arranged through email, so his attention to detail was flawless when it came time to execute our day. Marc is also part of a trio ensemble, but we were looking for a classic soloist with charm and elegance. We got that with Marc. We recommend him highly.
Marc Hoffman's reply:I can't thank you enough for the kind words. Yours was a beautiful celebration in one of the finer wedding venues in the area, Rosa Lee Manor. It was a pleasure working with you and all the best! - Marc

Marc Hoffman is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. He exceeded all expectations for our event and everyone was delighted with his performance. His laid back demeanor and confidence kept everyone involved relaxed and assured that the event was going to run smoothly and efficiently and it did!
Also Marc is an amazing pianist and highly skilled at his craft. His repertoire of songs included hits from yesterday and today. His interaction with the audience was just as smooth and seamless as his playing.
Do yourself a favor and hire Marc Hoffman for your event!Sent on 03/02/2018
Marc Hoffman's reply:It was a beautiful event and a pleasure for me. Thanks so much!

Our best wedding decision!
My husband and I hired Marc to provide live piano music and voice at our wedding reception and it was one of our most favorite details in our wedding. We love live music but were searching for an alternative to a loud band or party DJ. Marc's lovely piano and vocal talent was the perfect solution. He played so many of our most favorite songs and helped to make our reception an elegant, relaxed, and beautiful environment. Marc was so easy to work with and top-of-the-line professional --responding quickly when I reached out to him, tailoring his performance to meet our desires and requests, showing up well on time, traveling well beyond his home base, and even taking requests on the fly. We had so many guests talk about how much they enjoyed his music. We knew we were in for a treat based on his sample music and reviews, but Marc well exceeded our expectations in all areas!Sent on 11/05/2018
Marc Hoffman's reply:Morgan - How kind of you! Thank you again for allowing me to play a part in your beautiful wedding day. It was truly a pleasure. All the best to you two! - Marc
Neil · Married on 12/16/2017
Excellent professional. Skilled pianist and vocalist. Very flexible to tailor his program to your needs. We actually used him for a Christmas party and not a wedding and the date below indicates the party date. I would expect he would do an excellent job for either a wedding reception, pianist during the ceremony or entertainer for a rehearsal dinner. He traveled 2 and 1/2 hours to my venue so he will travel.Sent on 03/13/2018
Marc Hoffman's reply:Thanks so much, Neil. It was my pleasure and I hope to work with you again!

Brianna · Married on 10/21/2017
I am a wedding planner and had the pleasure of working with Marc Hoffman for a wedding in Trinity, NC. I was thrilled when we began discussing ceremony music details and Marc knew exactly what to do! He is an experienced professional who needed minimal guidance from me and provided beautiful music for the ceremony. It definitely made my job easier and less stressful! I would suggest working with Marc Hoffman if you need live music!Sent on 11/20/2017

Perfect Musical PerformanceSent on 10/10/2017
Marc played dinner music for our wedding and could not have asked for a better and classier experience. Marc was super easy to work with, very accommodative in other request like announcing our wedding party, and performed beautifully. Highly recommend him for any performance you may need, particularly for your wedding. Would give him 6 stars if we could.
Jackie · Married on 09/17/2017
Marc Hoffman and his trio were the perfect musical experience for our daughter's engagement party. Marc was very accommodating when we originally booked him almost a year prior to the event. He was organized and professional and required little assistance from us on the day of the party. Their play list was perfect and their sound was extremely authentic and professional. I would definitely use them in the future!Sent on 07/02/2017
Madeline · Married on 07/02/2017
This band played at a wedding shower my family held for us. They were accommodating and flexible when weather forced them to change locations last minute! I did not book them myself, but they made the day really special. They did a great job "reading the room" and playing the perfect songs. Flexible, talented and easygoing.Sent on 07/02/2017
