Exceeded all of our 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!
What a voice!
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 !!

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.
