I can't say enough about Ovation. As a bride on your wedding day, you're floating through the reception trying to say hello to everyone. In the majority of these brief conversations with our guests, they raved about the band and wanted to know all about them. For our first dance, the band learned a new song they've never played before ... and it was better than the original. Marc was amazing throughout the night and the music truly made a lasting impression on everyone. Thank you to every Ovation member for exceeding ALL expectations. We'll remember the horns, voices, and dance moves forever.Sent on 05/23/2017

A band that will keep guests dancing ALL NIGHT
This band exceeded all of our expectations. They kept the dance floor packed for 4 hours, and our guests (age 18-93) packed the dance floor. We were told over and over again that this was the best wedding band our guests had ever heard and we totally agree. They are professional, they can read the room, and they are great musicians.Sent on 11/10/2018

Ovation recently played at my husband’s birthday celebration where we hosted a party of multigenerational attendees. Aside from the fact that they were prompt and responsive with communication they were also willing and eager to accommodate our musical choices ranging from jazz, rock, R&B and classic standards with finesse, they brought everyone to their feet for a memorable and great evening! Thank you Mark and his band for making this party one we won’t soon forget!!!!Sent on 08/21/2018

My daughter got married July 14, 2018! I had been looking for a band that was going to have the dance floor packed all night and decided to book with Ovation! We couldn’t have picked a better band! It was exactly what we wanted...the band was excellent, the song selections were appropriate and well known to everyone and the dance floor was filled from the moment dancing began until it was time to turn off the lights and go home! We wish it could have lasted way longer than it was and was dancing for days after! Highly recommended!!Sent on 08/16/2018

If you are looking for live music for your event, look no further, because The Ovation Band is the premier dance band in the area! From the first few notes they play, you’ll be blown away by their sound! The Ovation Band is professional in every way and knows how to get your guests up out of their seats and on the dance floor making your event one that no one will forget! I am completely confident recommending The Ovation Band for your next party or event! You won’t be disappointed!Sent on 08/13/2018

Mark and his band played for our Oct 2017 wedding at Drake's Landing. Working with him was a care free process from beginning to end. We met once in person to establish a timeline for the evening and review song preferences. He was also available by text/email whenever we had any questions thereafter (with prompt replies). The band did everything possible to accommodate our song requests. They even put together a custom arrangement for our father/daughter dance and were willing to learn a couple songs not on their set list.
The reception itself flowed flawlessly. We did not have a coordinator for the evening, so Mark made sure we stayed on schedule while acting as our emcee for the night. During the few short band breaks, a seamless transition was made from live band to DJ'd music so that our guests were continuously on the dance floor. Select band members interacted with our guests on the dance floor and throughout the venue while performing which kept the crowd lively all evening.
Most importantly, the quality of the music was impeccable. The vocals were wonderful and the band sounded as if it was composed of high quality musicians.
You won't go wrong with choosing this band for your event, especially for one of your most memorable ones. We are truly happy that we did.

My husband and I got married at stambaugh auditorium in June 2014. We were given some information on the ovation band and realized they were playing at a local restaurant that Friday, so we decided to go and see them. At about the 3rd song into the night we both looked at each other and knew they were the band for us! We introduced ourselves to Marc pupino and booked right away. The ovation band brings a type of energy with fun songs across several genres and their guests who never leave the dance floor! The ovation band was professional and courteous! We know have been to several other weddings and back to see them perform at the fireplace!Sent on 10/02/2016
Thanks to Marc and the rest of the ovation band for continuing to get us out on the dance floor and for an amazing evening!!!

The Ovation Band is an amazing group of musicians that delighted our guests with their talent and personality. They truly helped make our event, the Eye Ball of the Valley, a huge success. Everyone was raving about the great music!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for outstanding entertainment for a wedding, charity fundraiser, private party, etc...Sent on 10/21/2016

“Wow”, what can we say! We feel very privledged to have had The Ovation Band as our wedding band. Not only did you blow us away but I can’t believe how many people commented on how amazing you were. The fact that there were guests who i have NEVER seen dance in public on the dancefloor the whole night is testament to you all.Sent on 12/30/2016

Ovation is hands down THE best wedding band out there! All of our wedding guests had an absolute blast dancing to the wide variety of music they played. We met with Marc once before our wedding and he was so easy to work with and such a nice guy! Nobody ever left the dance floor (except for when we cut the cake)! I would recommend Ovation to anyone looking to book music for their special event!Sent on 12/13/2017

The Ovation Band literally did everything we asked of them. Every special request we had they took care of. They all enjoyed our wedding reception just as much as our guests & that meant a lot to my husband and I. We live in South Carolina but we were getting married back in Ohio which was ‘home’ for both of us & they were very flexible in accommodating days and times that worked with when we would be in town. Highly recommend them!Sent on 12/12/2017
