TESTIMONIALS

“A huge thank you for everything you guys did on Sunday. The music was amazing and everyone said how much they love you. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. You are by far my number one recommendation from the entire evening!”

Kathleen (Bride) Toronto

“Hey guys, what a great day we had! Everyone loved you guys. I wish I had more time to listen to you before and after the ceremony. Unfortunately, duty called….oh the perils of being the bride.”

Rosanna (Bride)Stoney Creek

“You were amazing – no matter how young or old, you got everyone on the dance floor. I can’t count the number of guests that asked for us to book you for next year’s event…please come back!”

Krista (Event Coordinator)St. Catherines

“Our reception felt so much more personal and entertaining then any DJed wedding I’ve been to!”

Kelly (Bride) Brampton

“Thank you guys so much for the awesome job you did!  Ben and I were really excited about having you guys come to play at our wedding, but many of our friends were really doubtful about having a live band.  They were worried they wouldn’t be able to dance to your music or that you would only play one type.  I knew they were mistaken, but they found out first hand.  You guys not only met our expectations but exceeded them!  I heard that people were so disappointed when you said you were done that they wanted an encore.  Thanks for accommodating!  I had people coming up to me all night long, and for weeks after, to say how good you were.  You definitely made the party.  You guys were great at reading the crowd and catering to it, dealing with requests, and seamlessly changing songs.  I’m still amazed at the variety of music you play.  There was something for everyone.  Even the people who didn’t dance enjoyed listening to you.

Thanks again for the great night!!”

Jolene & Ben Ottawa

“I wanted to let you know that we (and all of our guests) want to thank you and your band for helping make our night so amazing!!! I will be sure and recommend the Toronto Party Band whenever I can.”

Louisa (Bride) Beeton

“Thank you thank you! You guys were amazing and we heard so many amazing comments about you and the band from our friends and family.  We were just so thrilled with how flexible you were and how smooth everything went.”

Dana Stoney Creek

“Everything in our wedding raced by in a hazy blur, but afterwards, everyone told us  ‘what a rocking band we had!’  Thanks for the energy and enthusiasm in the dance sets we couldn’t help but get up and boogie!”

Dan & Mira Hamilton

“Everyone had a super time at the reception, and of course we have heard a lot of excited people say, “that band you had was awesome!”  Thanks for singing the lyrics I wrote to my favourite song and then making a recording of it for our wedding video, it’s a memory we’ll treasure forever!”

Joe (Groom) Sarnia

“My wife and I are musicians, so the music for our reception was very important to both of us. We were lucky to get Toronto Party Band. They were professional, adaptable and fairly priced. The band took care of providing us with a sound system, which took a lot off of our plate. Being picky about music, we were pleasantly surprised that we  got to choose our set list, and loved the varied list of songs and medleys to choose from. Toronto Party Band is as hands on or hands off as you want them to be. Musically, these guys are tight, polished and a whole lot of fun. Our dance floor was full two minutes after they started, and our guests continue to rave about their set four months later. If you want a band that sounds great and gives you no planning headaches, look no further than Toronto Party Band.”

Kerry & Krista Kitchener

“Highly professional and a delight to work with. Thanks for giving me one less thing to worry about and one more to enjoy!”

Sarah (Bride) Toronto

“You thought of everyone! My grandparents and my friends couldn’t stop talking about how much they loved the band.”

Christian (Groom) Mississauga

“The wedding was perfect and you guys were absolutely amazing.  Everyone we talked to was telling us how awesome you sounded! We loved every second of the music.”

Matt & Shannon (Bride & Groom)Welland
