    You must book your event with this group!

    We just got married last week and had Bongo&B provide a trio for our cocktail hour and a live band + DJ for the reception/dance party. The planning process was seamless; Chris was amazing, accommodated all our needs / preferences, and coordinated everything seamlessly. He was there the whole evening and was reading the room constantly and adjusting things so that the dance floor was always active. Shahi was our main vocalist and she was absolutely incredible! She was captivating and was so interactive with the guests, one of the best performers I have ever seen! I am so grateful to Chris, Shahi, and their team for putting together such a phenomenal party. It was truly unforgettable! All our guests were raving about the band! If I ever need to plan a major event again, I will definitely be going back to Bongo & B!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you so much Stephanie and Brandon! Big congrats to you both it was such a phenomenal evening with you both! Thank you again and wishing you an amazing start to your holidays and 2023!!

    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!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you so much Daniela & Jaxson for your wonderful reviews! we are so glad you loved Mirian our vocalist and leader of the Soul Pop Duo!! It was such a pleasure bringing you amazing talent!!

    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!

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    Claudio Thank you so much! It is such a privilege for us to perform for your family & Friends. We love hearing how amazing everything went and that it was so well received! Can't wait to celebrate future life milestones and keep the party going!

    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.

    Bongo & B Entertainment's reply:

    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!

    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!!

    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.
