Exceeded all of our expectations!

We booked the Nick Straccini Band for our wedding, and were simply blown away by their performance! When planning our wedding, having live music was one of the most important things to us, and we are so happy that we found Nick and his band - They exceeded all of our (high) expectations!

Nick put a ton of effort into selecting a set list that suited both of our tastes, and learned to play our first dance song, which will be a moment we will both treasure forever. The jazz quartet during the cocktail hour helped set the mood - and even got our 2 year old flower girl dancing!

After dinner, they kept everyone, including us, dancing all night long! Thank you Nick + Band!

Amazing performance and great variety!

Nicholas Straccini has a soulful yet raspy (in a good way) voice of an angel a la Chris Stapleton. Nick carries himself very professionally both in business and in his performances. Great guy to work with. Highly recommended. - Matthew

What a voice!

Nick is incredible. Seriously.

We had a lot of wants for our wedding day from our band, and Nick truly pulled through for us and gave us everything we we asked for and more.

For our ceremony, he sang while playing his guitar and learned a requested song. He pulled it off better than I could have even hoped for. Walking down the aisle, witnessing my husband's reaction was one of my favorite and most special memories of the day, and I'm thankful that Nick was able to give it the most perfect soundtrack.


For our cocktail hour, we had a jazz trio play and they were wonderful. Of course we were off for our photos so I wasn't able to hear them as much as I'd have liked, but I did for a little while during our family formals. From what I was able to hear and what was relayed by our guests, they were thoroughly enjoyed.

For the reception, we had a 6 piece band, and they were absolutely amazing. They played a huge range of different songs and gave them their own little twist. All guests of all ages enjoyed them and got on the dance floor.

I couldn't be happier with everything Nick provided (he also DJed during dinner and MCed for us) and can tell you without a doubt that if you choose him for your wedding day, you will not be disappointed.

Soulful voice, indeed!

Exceptional Band !!

I met Nick by coincidence... I was searching for a band for my wedding. Called him and came to the house to discuss... His voice was amazing as he sang a couple of lyricks from songs suggested then. The band was amazing and every members was professional and very kind. Nick found a way to sing some song that were dear to me, even touch it was a female artist that was signing... After earing him, I was so impressionne !!! The crowd couldn't stop talking about the amazing band that we had got. Would recommande them anytime !! You will not regret it. Thanks again Nick for making this night exceptional.

Just epic!

We are so happy we chose Nick and band to play at our wedding. They were instrumental (no pun intended) in making our wedding day the dream day we hoped for and it was just EPIC. They played everything we wanted and even surprised us with a secret song I did not think they would play. What a way to cap off the night. Just an amazing experience with Nick, he was truly professional and responsive to all our requirements and his team was stellar! Thanks Nick and Band.
Brigitte and Pierre.

Dancing the night away

My wife and I had the Nick Straccini Band for our wedding party and were extremely pleased with the quality of performance. We had multiple guests comment on the energy of the band and the wide variety of genres they performed. The dance floor was packed the whole night.

High Energy and reliable

We booked Nick back in 2020 for our 2021 wedding date and from the day one he was very much focused on giving us the best experience from beginning to end. The band was great and friendly and kept the music coming from the cocktail down to the last part of the night. Nick was also very attentive and even came up to me to apologize for something that I had not even noticed.

Over all if you do pick him he will try his best to stay on top of everything from day of logistics to song choice.

Everyone said the band was great and kept our guests dancing though out the night.
