    The best in town


    This team was absolutely amazing. Everyone I speak to that attended our wedding, compliments on how good the band was. Even my aunts, that are in their eighties said they great and enjoyed the Italian songs.

    Silvio was very accommodating, we sprung them with a few last minute changes and within seconds they delivered. There are not enough words to express how we feel about them, their professionalism, and the way they entertained was TOP NOTCH.

    I highly recommend them!!!

    Amazing! Best Customer Experience. You want these guys the night of your wedding!

    Sophistoccasion and Silvio were amaaazing to work with!
    Of all our providers, Sophistoccasion was the only one we knew we could count on to be respectful of our limits, budget, amenable with all the other providers and easy to work with. They stick to their word, the contract, and use common sense in what is expected to be provided and not provided. There is a premium to be for having a live band at your wedding. When you compare with only the DJ, MC, and getting all the entertainment services piece by piece, Sophistoccasion might only be a bit more expensive, and they deliver on that premium and beyond. With Sophistoccasion, you get what you pay for, and that’s being treated with a lot of class, both for the bride and groom, as well as the guests and wedding party. You get the best experience there is. The whole dance floor was lit up with all the guests the minute the dance floor was open, around 8pm. It didn’t stop until the end of the night.
    A big THANK YOU to the whole team for making the whole lead up to the event easy on us, and making the event outstanding!
