    Labour Day long weekend - Wedding band review

    Hired The Intentions for our wedding on Labour Day long weekend. They were amazing and really knew how to get the guests up and dancing.

    Would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to hire a band for any special event. They will deliver above and beyond your expectations.

    The Intentions made our wedding the best day ever!

    I can not thank the intentions enough for making our ceremony and reception a dream come true! From start to finish we loved our experience - Jon Ophek is a true professional and the most friendly and positive person going! The entire wedding was dancing and every single guest was so excited and having an incredible time! There was the largest Congo line I’ve ever seen when the band performed love train and it’s a memory I will never forget! They got everyone up, dancing and having the best time! Thank you for your energy, enthusiasm and beautiful music!!

    A Must Have For Your Weeding!

    Right from the start Jon was very attentive. He always got back to us quickly if we had questions. We hired them for all parts of our wedding including the vocal ensemble, jazz band and the party band. They were all equally amazing! They were so professional the whole time. I have never seen so many different ages of people dancing for so long! We had many guests say that the band made our wedding. Thank you Jon for such a wonderful night! The ambience you added made our wedding day perfect!

    Book this band for your wedding and you won't regret it!

    Working with The Intentions was a dream - and they are an incredible band. When searching for a wedding band I knew I wanted something fun and when I found this band online I was blown away. My husband and I went to see them perform at 3030 Dundas and within 2 minutes we knew this was the band for us. Working with Jon was easy and he really knows events and what is needed. Everyone at our wedding gushed over how amazing our band was. It was so much better than a DJ! They allow you to request 2 songs to cover and they took our requests and knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend this band for your wedding hands down. It's especially great because they play motown so everyone knows this music - not just your young guests.

    12/10 Band, Best in the City!

    The Intentions played for our wedding and it was an absolute BLAST. Everyone was on the dance floor for the whole night and it was an integral part of our night. All the band members looked like they were having the best time and truly enjoying what they do. Jon, the band leader, was an absolute pleasure to work with; very responsive, thorough, flexible and kind. I would highly recommend this band to anyone that is looking to have a FUN wedding.

    The Intentions were an amazing addition to our wedding day. Working with Jon leading up to the big day was seamless and he was very helpful including giving us tips with creating our "day of" schedule. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect evening--in big part thanks to The Intentions! We continue to hear the best feedback from our guests who are still raving about the dance party. Thank you!

    Simply put, The Intentions! made the reception at our wedding the "event of the year" for our friends and family. All our guests, young and old, hit the dance floor right after dinner, danced their brains out and didn't stop until the last bus was threatening to leave. The Intentions! bring an authenticity and fun energy that you really can't find anywhere else in this city!

    The Intentions!

    The Intentions were the heart and soul of our reception. From the start, Jon was a pleasure to work with. He listened carefully to what we wanted and went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right. The band was absolutely incredible. We had the party band and the DJ and would not have had it any other way.

    Got the party started!

    The Intentions! were AMAZING! We had them play with their 7 piece band at our wedding in April. We were allowed to request 2 songs and they did a fabulous job of playing the very hard 'Arcade Fire' song I requested. The band has a niche genre of music that they play, but oh do they play it well. The music is great for all generations and really got everyone on the dance floor. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a band that is musical very talented and only plays songs they know they can play EXTREMELY well. We love them!
