What a band!
It was really difficult finding a live band in Italy that we liked. When we chanced upon The Bit Band we knew they had to perform at our wedding. Mary and Nadyne are fantastic singers and really knew how to get our guests up and dancing all night. The musicians are top notch and they were able to cover our entire day (ceremony, cocktails and dance reception). If you are looking for a live band, look no further!! Thank you Bit Band for adding to such an amazing day.Sent on 12/29/2019

Where do I start....? You were simply awesome! It was the best way to round off a truly special day. The dance floor was never empty which is a testament to your charisma and energy - the audience were very engaged! We've had so many comments from guests about how wonderful the band was! Thank you for such a great evening. Would highly recommend you to others!Sent on 06/01/2019

We hired the Bit Band for our wedding in October and our guests are still raving about them. Dealing with Mary was so easy. She always answered our emails swiftly and helped sort out the music licence for us. She made herself available to speak to us on Skype a couple of times to sort out repertoire and the various locations where we wanted music. We asked for the Full Service and they did an incredible job throughout the day. Mary and Nadyne did a superb job during the dance portion. They kept the dance floor full from start to end with their energy. The band has very talented musicians and they have a very versatile repertoire that had my teen nieces and even my 80 year old grandmother dancing! I highly recommend the Bit Band if you are looking for a live band for your wedding.Sent on 12/29/2019

We found the Bit Va nd after some lengthy research on instagram and we were sold by their video clips and the stellar reviews they have on wedding wire. Believe me, they are even better in person! What an incredible bunch of musicians and Mary was such a pleasure to work with. She quickly responded to all of our emails and really helped us out in choosing the music for the various parts of the day. Mary and Nadyne are amazing singers and have such a good chemistry on stage. They had everyone dancing and singing along with them all night. Thanks to you all for playing the perfect soundtrack to our special day!Sent on 12/28/2019
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you so much for your review Lorenzo. We had a great time performing for your guests!

Amazing amazing amazing!
Mary was amazing to deal with from start to finish. From the first song to the last song the dance floor was full, all of our guests commented how great the band were. We went for the full package and it was well worth it, Mary even learned a specific song I wanted to walk down the aisle to. Their repertoire is very diverse and suits every age group, we left it to them on the night and hadn’t picked any specific songs and every song they played had everyone singing and dancing along. Couldn’t recommend enough.Sent on 10/03/2019
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you for your wonderful review. We had so much fun with you and your guests! All the very best, The Bit Band

My husband, I and everyone else who attended our wedding absolutely loved The B.I.T band. They gave it 110% from start to finish and that was until 0300!! Great communication from Mary and with the amount of weddings they do, to still perform like yours is the only one. Amazing!!!Sent on 10/14/2019
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you for your lovely review Gemma. So happy that you and your guests enjoyed yourselves! All the very best, The Bit Band
Matthew Chater · Married on 09/15/2019
Amazing Band! Look no further.
After stumbling across a video of Mary and the BIT Band online, we stopped searching for our Wedding band. We knew that we not find any band with more authenticity, emotion, and fun, and they sure delivered on the night! Our guests were blown away with the quality of the band and after giving Mary full reign over the choice of music there was great song after great song all night long. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone without hesitation!Sent on 09/28/2019
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you for your testimonial Matthew. We had a blast performing for all of you. Wishing you both all the very best!

We changed our wedding date to make sure Mary & The B.I.T. Band could perform at the event
When I heard Mary's voice online and read a helpful review on Wedding Wire (that mentioned the guests were on their knees at the end of the wedding begging her to stay), I knew there wouldn't be a wedding of mine without B.I.T. Band performing. So we had to shift some dates around to make it happen - and I'm so glad we did. Mary and the B.I.T. band are some of the most professional and talented musicians I've ever met - and I've been to weddings with famous pop stars performing - they fade in comparison to Mary's voice, energy and state of euphoria she drove us into on the dance floor, together with her band. She is one of the few musicians who can as easily perform Stevie Wonder, Queen and Bruno Mars, always choosing the best possible song for the right moment. So much so that months later we (and our guests) still keep humming some of the songs Mary sang. All of our guests have been most impressed with the B.I.T. Band and kept asking HOW did we find them. Everyone was on the dance floor since the very first song of the first set. Our dream of dancing in the moonlight on Lake Como (we had a dance floor built outside) was brought to life by the talent and energy of Mary and her band. One of the best memories of the whole wedding for us was Mary's last set - singing Queen medley - and guests simply losing it on the dance floor, we felt like we were all in another universe or dimension, it was so fun and powerful.
B.I.T. Band's repertoire is also enormous and will cater to any taste. Mary is Canadian Italian and sings in multiple languages. She was trained in classical opera singing so can perform both the wedding ceremony and the dancing part. We had the B.I.T. Band perform at our cocktail hour (trio - Italian classic tunes and Jazz), during the wedding ceremony (piano & amazing Italia classic - all recommended by Mary and stroke a cord perfectly), and 3 sets during/after dinner. Mary and B.I.T. Band are world class performers and if you can still get on their schedule, do it right away - they get booked up very quickly.
Beyond Mary's and B.I.T. Band's professionalism, energy, an amazing taste in music and ability to read and ignite the audience, I have to add that they are also wonderful, warm people. We became friends as we prepared for the wedding and we left like old friends after it. I can't thank Mary and her team enough - you literally MADE our wedding. Highly recommend and again, book fast!

Best band for our fairy tale Italy wedding!
Mary and her amazing band really made our dream fairy tale wedding day in Italy truly special! Mary has an incredible voice and kept our guests entertained through the cocktail hour and created such a great atmosphere during the after party. The dance floor was pumping and kept both young and oldies entertained. We've had many guests commenting about BIT band and we highly recommend! They were also really flexible and made sure we had music playing through dinner as well as providing mics for the speeches. They went above and beyond for sure! We thank you so so much we had a blast! xxxSent on 10/17/2019

Such a great band!
Mary and the BIT Band played at our wedding at Villa Di Ulignano in Tuscany just over a week ago. Mary was amazing to communicate with in the build up to the wedding and the band delivered above all expectations on the day. We took the full service for ceremony, aperitif and dance and were so pleased we did as the live music added perfectly to the atmosphere and celebration.Sent on 09/14/2019

We are extremely happy to have chosen The Bit Band for our wedding. The atmosphere was fantastic and the band was very responsive to us and our guests. Also the contact and coordination was always pleasant. We always had feedback on our questions or concerns within a short time. And waw the voice of Mary is just fantastic!Sent on 10/01/2019
The band is very recommendable and we would book it again any time.

Wonderful, everything we could have asked for!
Mary and the band were excellent, they sounded great and played even better. They tailored our song selection perfectly and had the dance floor full all night, which is just what we were looking for. Would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks againSent on 09/02/2019
Desiree · Married on 08/05/2019
Mary and the band were super responsive from day one and have a HUGE repertoire to choose from! We had them our full wedding day, for the ceremony they played our carefully chosen songs, some jazz music during the aperitivo and we had the best party after dinner with them! All our guests were amazed by the voices of both Mary and Nadine and wished they could stay for the rest of the night. This band knows how to create a big wedding party! I definitely recommend the BIT band for future weddings or other parties!Sent on 08/17/2019
Daniel Wilbor · Married on 07/13/2019
Mary and the BIT Band played during our wedding celebrations in July 2019. They were absolutely fantastic!!! If you want to ensure that your guests will dance and have fun then book this band. Mary's voice is powerful and soulful and sounds better than the real thing. We have had guests tell us that it was the best wedding band they had seen. Although we didn't get much chance to speak to the band they seemed like a genuinely nice group of people. The kind of people you would want to welcome to your wedding. I couldn't recommend this band highly enough. Dan and Claire.Sent on 08/09/2019
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you for your testimonial Daniel. We had a fabulous time performing for you and your guests and their participation with our Queen medley at the end of the evening was TOP!!!

Thank you so much! We absolutely loved this band!!!!
We had such an amazing day with The B.I.T Band! They beautifully accompanied our ceremony, they created a relaxed and upbeat atmosphere for afternoon cocktails and antipasti and really got our party started after dinner!
They even added two songs to their repertoire and performed these absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for this!
Mary is a real gem and has such a wonderful presence with her voice and personality. The entire Band is just too nice and really knows how to perform!!!
We want to thank you all again for your fantastic music, your smiles and all the magical moments that you have created for us!Sent on 07/01/2019

Gina Scelzi · Married on 06/04/2019
We got married three weeks ago in Tuscany close to San Galgano and had the Bit Band perform at our wedding. They performed at the ceremony, cocktails and dance portion and were absolutely amazing!! Mary sang at the ceremony with the keyboard player and everyone was in tears when she sang Con Te Partirò by Bocelli. Then at the cocktails Nadyne sang with her soulful voice along with the guitarist and bass player and they did such lovely arrangements of some of our favourite songs. The Dance portion left everyone absolutely speechless. The whole band with both Mary and Nadyne singing were OVER THE TOP! So many people came up to us afterwards saying that it was the best party band they had ever heard....and many of my guests have heard some great live bands coming from New York and L.A! They just couldn't get over the talent that this group had. Not only were they all great musicians but both Mary and Nadyne had everyone up dancing and participating all night (even my 90 year old grandmother!!) I highly recommend The Bit Band to anyone planning on getting married in Tuscany. It was an unforgettable day for all of us and they definitely were a huge part of that!Sent on 07/17/2019
Thank you Bit Band!....(now I gotta figure out how to get you guys out to New York for our anniversary party next year!)
The B.I.T. Band's reply:Thank you for your review Gina. We had a great time performing for you and your guests. We hope to perform at your anniversary party in New York!!

Live music to make your day really special
Mary and the BITband more than lived up to our expectations and those of our guests - they were just fantastic! I honestly couldn't recommend them more highly. Mary's crystal clear classical voice brought tears to the eyes of everyone during our civil wedding ceremony in San Galgano Abbey. Later, she had everyone tapping their feet to bluesy and jazzy songs as we drank aperitivi around the pool at Il Mulino delle Pile. Finally, to the surprise and delight of all, Mary and her band transformed our wedding reception into a real party as noone could resist getting up to dance to great rock and pop music until the early hours of the morning. We were a very mixed group - the youngest being just 11 and the eldest 73 - but everyone was on their feet, so if you want your wedding to truly 'rock', then Mary and the BITband are the way to go!Sent on 07/29/2019

The B.I.T bad were excellent. They performed at our wedding on the 1st June last year. The band did an instrumental performance at our drinks reception and then the full band performed after dinner. There was a slight delay with our dinner but Nadine and her band respected this and left it a bit later to play. Nadines Voice and the band were just brilliant. They are so professional and really love what they do which comes across on the day. The band came and set up without any problems. It was seamless. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. I would have loved them to play for the whole night and not have a DJ ;)
If you are thinking about hiring this band, no need to hesitate, just book them, you will not regret it!!!!!Sent on 03/25/2020

The Bit Band was the highlight of the wedding
- absolutely great singers
- fantastic musicians
- respond to all wishes
- sensational music, so that we danced from the first to the last second
- great atmosphere
- incredibly lovable and friendly team
We booked this band for our wedding in Pienza and all guests were enthusiastic without exception. It was probably the best live band I've heard in years.
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special and for creating such a great atmosphere.Sent on 06/17/2019

A blast and added so much to our event!
This group is fantastic! They have a huge song selection and will do whatever you want to tailor to your audience. They are FABULOUS, so fun and interactive and have great voices! My guests kept telling me how awesome the band was and how they would want them for their wedding! I have not one critical thing to say and would easily book them again and again! This is a great choice for a fun, talented and professional group for your wedding! They really helped to add to the perfection of the night! People I have never seen dance before we’re out there dancing and it was because of them (and the Italian wine) hahaSent on 06/21/2019

Amazingly talented and really professional
Mary and the band were amazing - the dance floor was full from as soon as they started right up until the last moment. They really got the party going, and were great at reading the crowd. Amazingly talented and really professional, even helping us navigate the confusing SIAE taxes in Tuscany. A HUGE thanks to you all - we had an amazing wedding night.Sent on 06/04/2019

Pintrest Wedding - Topped off with incredible Band
Bitband stole the show at our wedding. Our guests danced for 4 hours straight and they helped make our first dance one that will forever be in our memory. To this day at family gatherings, our guests still cant stop talking about the music at our wedding. From the moment Mary and the band started during dinner - we were swept away by their talents. To Mary and the entire Bitband - we thank you for making our day so special. Future clients - look no further - they are the only choise you should considerSent on 10/27/2019

We hired the Bit band for our wedding in October in Tuscany and they were fundamental in making our wedding a huge success. They had our guests dancing and singing along all night. I can't thank them enough for making our night forever memorable!! Fantastic musicians and boy can Mary belt out a tune. When talking with her on skype she was so personable and helped us out in finding a dance floor and made some great suggestions for the type of atmosphere we wanted during the various moments of the day.

The most amazng band!
We hired The Bit band after reading all the recommendations on this site and we are so glad we did! We had our wedding in October in the Chianti Region with guests from all over Europe and the USA. Mary was so helpful every step of the way. She was very prompt in all her replies to our various emails and we set up a couple of Facetime meetings with her. We hired her band for the dance portion but wish I had also hired them for the cocktails! We all could have listened to them the entire day!! Listening to Mary's voice was like listening to a recording . Everything she sang was beautiful and her musicians are incredible. We come from L.A. and are used to hearing a lot of live bands but I have to say that The Bit Band has to be one of the tightest and most versatile bands I have ever heard. They played everything from Sinatra to Bruno Mars, from Gloria Gaynor to Jesse Glynn...it was truly amazing. Our guests were blown away by their energy and musicality. Thank you Bit Band for making our day so memorable....now we have to figure out a way of getting out to L.A!Sent on 12/04/2018
