Amazing strings for ceremony and cocktails and fantastic DJ

Bongo and B was great! The process beforehand was really straightforward and Chris and the team helped us select our songs for the day of. On the day, the strings were amazing and the ceremony and cocktail reception was great. At night, DJ Tage killed it and the dance floor was never empty! Highly recommend this group for any party you are planning!

amazing live entertainment

We've had an incredible experience working with Bongo & B! Our guests were mesmerized by live entertainment.
Planning: Chris helped to bring our vision to life by offering different options to our liking and to fit our budget! From day one, he took the time to see us in person, listened carefully to what we want, offered best practices and lessons learned from other events, and was always available for questions. There was a lot of hand holding - his professional outlook helped us to understand the details and managed our expectations!
The day of: We ended up getting a duo - James (vocalist) and Chris (pianist). They worked so well together! To this day I get compliments from the guests saying how amazing the music was! James, has the most special voice and left all the guests captivated by his talent! Not only is he super talented but he is such a sweet person. One thing that I was very happy about is that they went above and beyond to make our day special - I had finalized the list of songs last minute (~2 days before the event!) and suggested some songs that were not part of James' setlist. I was so surprised and happy to hear Harry Styles' songs that I've added last minute, it just elevated my whole personal experience! Ah can't get over his voice!
Our MC/DJ was Rich, what a kind and sweet person! He was flexible and open from the beginning to facilitate games, kept everyone on track of time and made sure music was to everyone's liking!
I highly recommend Bongo and B, my personal experience working with Chris, James, Chris, and Rich was incredible! (I feel like making up an event just so that I can invite them again :D)

Super organized, beautiful, and stressfree!

Bongo & B was easily our favourite vendor. They were so professional, on time, incredibly organized, and made the music part of our wedding not only beautiful but stress free. I recommend working with them anytime!

We had Mirian accompanied by a Piano for our live performance - she has an incredible voice and was so accommodating when we had last-minute schedule changes. The DJ was a lot of fun and our guests loved him!

Amazing performances!

The Bongo & B team was such a pleasure to work with! Chris was so fantastic, easy to communicate with and very flexible and even offered us advice on how to execute our events. We hired a team of Dhol and Violin for our fusion event and they absolutely killed it! All our guests loved Brigit and Tej as they were the stars of the night. We couldn’t have made a better choice than to go with the Bongo and B team.

Flawless Entertainment For Brayden's Baptism!~

Bongo & B Entertainment is the ultimate source for live entertainment for any type of event! My wife and I used Bongo & B to entertain our guests at our son's baptism event, and we were satisfied "over-the-moon" with their overall execution. We mainly dealt with Chris Romano and he allocated an amazing Electric-Violinist who entertained in the front foyer, a fantastic Flamenco Guitarist who entertained the main hall room during dinner time, and 5 fabulous Samba Dancers (including Chris as the drummer) who opened up the dance floor after dessert. The performance that they gave us was second the none and was just completely memorable. A huge round of applause to Bong & B + Team for this excellence from the Nunes Family!

Great service and fantastic entertainers!

Bongo & B Entertainment were absolutely fabulous! Chris and his team were very organized from their arrival to final takedown. They offer a wide range of acts, so they can cater to a variety of tastes and interests. For our event, Bongo & B assisted with all our audio needs, had an incredible cellist duo, and a live 7-piece band that had everyone tapping their foot or up on the dance floor. Our guests were engaged throughout the event and we received rave reviews at the end of the night. Their musicians were incredibly talented and we definitely would recommend using them for your event!

Absolutely Amazing!

I cannot say enough great things about Chris and the team at BONGO & B! After having to postpone our wedding twice due to Covid, we finally got married in November and Chris was so accommodating and supportive at every step of the way. We hired a string trio for both our ceremony and reception, and they were absolutely amazing! If you're looking for something to elevate your wedding (or any party!) and take it to the next level, I strongly recommend reaching out to Chris. BONGO & B offers such a wide range of entertainment options and they really cater to your individual needs. Their services and musicians are truly exceptional.

Amazing live entertainment!

Thank you Bongo & B for making our wedding day so spectacular! The live entertainment was incredible and we received so many compliments from our guests as well :) everything was perfect and everyone enjoyed every second of the entertainment throughout the night -- from the bongo party starter to the jazz trio during dinner to the late night music for dancing, it was all amazing! Thank you all so much for making our day so special!

Incredible!

Working with Bongo and B was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
Chris was amazing to work with. He is responsive, patient, and through in explaining the options. I wanted to have some live acoustic/stripped down music during our reception for the cocktail hour and throughout dinner service. He presented many options, but when I heard the demo of Mirian singing I knew she would be perfect! We booked their Soul-Pop trio led by Mirian - she is an absolute STAR. Chris arranged for me to choose a selection of songs from their repertoire, and she built the most perfect setlist around it for the mood of the evening. Our guests were entranced by her singing, I think every single guest mentioned how talented she is and how much they enjoyed the performance. THANK YOU to the entire team at Bongo and B, you helped bring the entire event together. It was a dream come true.

With an honours degree in Jazz Performance from the Humber College Music Program, I have many years of experience performing and managing Corporate, Social and Private events from a small to large scale.

As a Jazz Drummer & Pianist, I've brought over my artist talent, to talent development and expanding our incredible roster to bring Toronto the very best of Musical wedding talent.

Bringing together some of the best musicians I know in the city who are touring and performing at the highest level, allows me to excel Bongo & B to the #1 Choice when selecting your special days Live Entertainment.

Personally, I find communication and education the MOST important thing when I talk to all my brides and grooms. So many people like to just send an email without explaining anything behind the talent and WHY they are as good as they are.

For so many Brides & Grooms, this is often their first time hiring Entertainment, and I personally want to show them all the available options.

My passion for my clients and being a dedicated musician provides the chemistry for the flawless execution of performances. Knowing both sides of the same coin is an extremely valuable asset most people in this industry do not have. Having both Business, Management, Organizational and musical expertise, I always exceed my clients' expectations on all facets of an event from beginning to end. These unique dynamics build client relationships for years to come and allow for the proper execution of our talented showcases delivering unforgettable experiences that resonate long after an event is over!

Over the past 10 years, I've begun to amass a portfolio of Happy Clients with Hundreds of happy brides & grooms. It's been great seeing some of them years down the road with their children coming back to us to now take Music Lessons!

I can't wait to chat with you about your special day and how we can find you the perfect talent to suit your mood, budget, and make some forever memories!

I started performing music and player well over the last 20 years. Studying Afro-Cuban, West African and Caribbean rhythms from master drummers that reside in our beloved city to their homelands in Cuba always was a calling for me.

Understanding the power of the instrument and how it elevates the energy of all human beings is an undeniable force to the core of what Bongo & B represents.
