Cocktail Special Events for our wedding and the party totally rocked!
We had Cocktail Special Events at Le Crystal for our wedding and the party totally rocked!Sent on 14/02/2021
Johnny is amazing with the people and had them dancing and singing all night long. Everyone raved about them and their DJ is amazing. I had seem them at several weddings, and they are not a copy and paste act. They cater to the crowd at hand and ensure your party is unique and total satisfaction. Unbelievable!
Thanks to COCKTAIL and Le Crystal, our wedding reception was a hit!
Our party was unlike any other weddings we attended in the past and they made our special moment different, and memorable.
A pleasure dealing with Johnny and thank you for all your help.
COCKTAIL Special Events rocks!

There is a family affair between us and COCKTAIL Special Events. COCKTAIL has performed for three of my cousins, my sister and myself. Every party was different and not a repeating act we had already seen! One thing remained the same, and it was their class and entertainment. They know exactly how to get a party going and keep it going.Sent on 12/02/2021
Their sound is crisp and at a comfortable volume where we can actually have a conversation in the room. Their songs selection is creative and gets people on the dance floor. Johnny was super attentive to our requests and very professional. A true gentleman that always delivers what he promises.
The music enchanted our special night, and my wife and I will never say thank you enough to COCKTAIL for creating so many memories we will cherish forever.

COCKTAIL Special Events all you need for your special day
Johnny, Melody and Patrick played at our wedding on September 21st and Johnny was easy to deal with previous to the wedding and was always prompt with his reply’s. On the night, what can I say but how excellent they were. They were able to judge the crowd and keep everyone on the dance floor all night long from the band to DJ Patrick later after the meal. Young and old enjoyed the music and I’m not surprised to hear you have a few new future brides dreaming to have COCKTAIL at their wedding. All I can say is thank you for being part of our wedding.Sent on 07/02/2021

Sensational!!! Really set the perfect ambiance
My wedding party will forever be remembered for having the best entertainment in town. We actually changed our wedding date in order to have COCKTAIL Special Events perform at our party, and it was the best decision we took. They have this special stage presence, and know exactly how to have a crowd eat in the palm of their hands.Sent on 04/02/2021
Unlike any other band/DJ in the industry, they created a magical atmosphere throughout the entire night, and our guests were able to speak to one another without having to shout on top of their lungs. John is very attentive, and pays attention to the smallest details which resulted in a great party. We had the three singers and guitar player + house DJ line-up, and they were simply amazing.
Thank you Johnny and COCKTAIL for making our special moment a memorable one.
