    Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

    Our wedding reception was simply perfect! Food, service at Le Crystal and COCKTAIL Special Events resulted in a flawless and in a night we will never forget.

    COCKTAIL Special Events set the tone right from the beginning with jazzy, lounge, chill out music that simply created a classy and cool ambiance. During dinner, it was the perfect mix of dance and easy listening numbers while our guests were eating.

    After dinner, their DJ took over and kept the dance floor packed until the end of the night. Amazing!

    What we appreciated so much was the volume in the hall during dinner. People were actually able to have a conversation without having to shout to one another. Their song selection was amazing and made our special night different and distinct.

    Unbelievable and talented singers impressed our guests, and entertained everyone in the room.

    Thank you so very much Johnny and COCKTAIL Special Events. You guys are the best!

    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!

    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!

    Good times!

    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.

    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's reply:

    Hello Stefano,
    Indeed, your family has been extremely good to us. There is nothing more flattering than performing for several members of the same family. This is exactly what I mentioned to you when we first met; WE ARE NOT A COPY AND PASTE ACT! Every event is different and we must cater to the guests at hand.
    We simply love performing for your family and look forward to your next event.

    Thank you again from th bottom of our hearts.

    Sincerely,

    Johnny Pacelli

    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.

    COCKTAIL Special Events and Johnny Pacelli is all you need for special memories.

    The Music Made the Difference

    There are no words to describe how amazing COCKTAIL Special Events are as a musical entertainment act. Unbelievable!
    Professional class act that surpassed our expectations.
    Three extraordinary vocalists, fun and unlike any other wedding musical entertainment we've seen.

    Very attentive to what we wanted to create for our wedding reception, and Johnny is the ultimate professional, and helped us so much organizing our special day.

    Thank you Cocktail and Johnny.
