    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.

    Louisa!!! Thank you so much!! You went through so much having to post-pone so many times, we are so glad in the end it was a perfect wedding! It was such an honour and privilege to be a part of your special day! We can't wait until further celebrations when you require the amazing team we have! Congratulations again!!

    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!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Paige!! Thank you so much!! You & Matthew + your family and friends were such a blast to perform for! We also had an incredible time playing for your special day. The venue and setup were incredibly stunning thanks to the Fab Fete Team and of course, your vision!

    We can't wait for future celebrations should you need incredible talent! All the best to you and Matthew and we'll be in touch soon!

    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.

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you so much Samantha for your kind words and explanation of our exceptional consultative process! Mirian is incredible and we are so glad you loved her performance for the whole night!

    We absolutely love hearing this first hand and it means so much to us! Thank you again and we can't wait for the next celebration!!

    Look no further for your live music needs!

    Highly recommend Bongo and B!! My husband and I were looking for some live music entertainement during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We were put in contact with Chris and I cannot express how amazing the service he provided was. He took the time to get to know us and although we originally went in with the intention of booking a violin duo, Chris was so good at figuring out what our vibe was, he ended up recommending an acoustic guitarist that my husband and I absolutely fell in love with. The array of talent they offer is like no other and I guarantee Chris will be able to find what you're looking for. Although in the end our acoustic guitarist was not able to play the guitar anymore and only sing, Chris worked his magic and ended up setting up a Vocal and pianist duo for our wedding. Special shoutout to both Mirian and Thomas! They were both truly amazing and myself, my husband, and our guests were so enchanted by their performances. I highly recommend both of them and Bongo and B in general for any special event!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Michelle!! Thank you so much for your amazing review!! It's such a pleasure hearing first hand how incredible everything was from start to finish! You and Adrian were so great to work with and we can't wait for future celebrations should you require exceptional talent! Wish you both all the best!!

    Exceptional performers and service

    While planning my wedding (I'm a professional event planner), I contacted a great many vendors in the entertainment industry as well as other industries, such as decor, florals, venues, attire and many others. Among all those contacts, none come close to working with Chris at Bongo and B. Chris made our talks seamless and hassle free. I have always admired the work of Bongo and B but have never used them till my wedding and I can tell you that I will continue to use them every chance I get. Chris was super accommodating, especially during this awful pandemic that hit our industry hard. I myself lost my job so that flexibility that Chris showed was more appreciated than I can communicate.

    Chris, Lauren and I can't thank you enough for everything you did for our wedding. We will always remember how much you helped us and I will do whatever I can to support you in business.

    As for the performers. Our pianist for our ceremony, Sandor was amazing. Sound was great, transitions were on point. All in all, a pretty flawless performance. We also had their beatlooper/violinist William perform at our ceremony and dear god was he freakin phenomenal. I only had about 60 guests and about 10 vendors and almost ALL of them (including the other vendors and even venue staff) raved about his performance. And we wholeheartedly agree with all of their praise. William's performance was awe inspiring. His skills are off the chart. I would completely recommend him.

    As you can probably tell if you made it this far, I'm a huge fan of Bongo and B and very obviously recommend them lol.

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Allan!! Wow, firstly you've been so great to work with during this whole process as we know how tough it's been. Reviews like these are what really make us strive to be the absolute best we can be so we can make that one unforgettable evening that much more special! It is a true pleasure and honour to hear this and we cannot thank you enough for referring us!! We can't wait for future celebrations to bring more spectacular entertainment! All the best to you and Lauren!

    Amazing Traditional Zaffeh!!

    I cannot thank Chris and Bongo & B enough for making our grand wedding entrance SO perfect. I wanted to bring some of my background (Lebanese) into our wedding and we found Bongo & B and they did an absolutely fantastic job with drumming is into our venue.
    Working with Chris leading up to the wedding was also so easy, he was very responsive and made us feel relaxed that everything was going to run smoothly. We got sooo many compliments on how amazing our entrance was.
    Thanks so much to those drummers!!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Hi Chantal!

    Thank you so much for this amazing review! It was an absolute pleasure to see you both enjoying the amazing zeffah drummers first hand on the day! I also have some amazing footage that I will send across to you as you had everyone on their feet partying alongside you! We wish you the absolute best in the future!
