Dear Rich,

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed having your band, New York Edge, perform at our wedding in October. As soon as we had met you and viewed tapes of the band, we knew you would provide the perfect compliment to our day. We were not disappointed.

Not only did you provide wonderful musical entertainment, it was a pleasure dealing with you from a business standpoint as well. You are the antithesis to so many of the negative implications applied to those involved in the wedding industry. Your personal integrity matches your incredible musical abilities, and you made our day more special than we could have ever imagined. So many of our guests could not say enough good things about the entire band, an assessment shared by us wholeheartedly. Thanks so much for everything.

Dear Rich and New York Edge,

We want to thank you for making our wedding reception such a success. Everyone keeps remarking that you are the best band they’ve ever heard — and they’re right!

The music sounded fantastic and everyone, especially us, had a fabulous time dancing to it!

We look forward to seeing and hearing you again soon.

Dear Rich and the gang,

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding the event of the year!

There has not been one person who attended our wedding who hasn’t commented on your superior performance. Everyone had a great time and the music really helped set the tone. The way you all worked the crowd was amazing — it seemed that the right song was always being played at the right time!

We also really enjoyed getting to know you — you are really wonderful people to work with and you can rest assured that you will always get high praise from both of us.

Dear Rich,

Gerry and I just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous job that you and the New York Edge musicians did at our wedding.

Everyone had a great time!

All we keep hearing is how great the band was and how people felt that they were being entertained.

We just gave your number to another couple who attended our wedding!

You really are a group of talented professionals that know how to show people a good time. Thank you for making our wedding and unforgettable evening.

Dear Rich, Shanti and the entire New York Edge Orchestra,

There is no other band!

I’ve never been to a wedding where the band seemed to be having as much fun as the bride and groom (and we had a really good time). Your energy was infectious and the proof is in the pictures!

In all the photos we have seen not only is the dance floor always full, but all you see on the faces are huge ear to ear grins!

Please, please, please send people our way for a reference. We would love to share what a great experience it was having you at our wedding!

Dear Rich,

Your band was just fantastic!

From the wedding ceremony trio thru the cocktail hour to the reception — WOW! You had your finger on the pulse of the evening and everybody raved! and danced!!!

Thank you for helping to make this wedding celebration so memorable. (You have helped give Rachael and Neil marveous memories for a lifetime.)

Best wishes for many future successes.

Dear Rich,

I would like to thank you on behalf of Lewis, Dorey, Kevin and myself for the outstanding job you did to make the wedding a beautiful, lively and truly fun evening. From the very beginning to the very end you were incredible to work with. At no time did you make us feel that we were bothering you or that our requests were out of line. Making all of the wedding arrangements long distance could have proved to be a nightmare but working with you made the decisions and arrangements stress free. It was such a pleasure because everytime I spoke with you I felt as though I was speaking with someone who cared about us, and who wanted to be certain every detail was as we wanted. I was certain that when we hung up the phone our requests would be attended to. You combine professionalism, efficiency, and organization with talent, warmth and humour.

Somehow from the first conversation we had almost a year ago to the meeting you had first with Dorey and Kevin and then again with three of us, we believed we were making the right decision. Beginning with the music played during the ceremony to the music during the dinner, you and your singers and musicians proved us right in our judgement. All of you performed and sang so beautifully that we have received nothing but compliments. we hope when you read this note you will think of us and how grateful we are that you made our New York experience such a pleasure, not only for us but for our guests as well. If there is anything I can do for you…

With Sincere Appreciation,
Ellen (mother of the bride)

Dear Rich and Shanti,

Thank you so much for a phenomenal evening of nonstop music at our wedding. From the cocktail hour to the last song, everything was just right.

My only complaint (kidding) is that guests did not want to leave the dance floor and we had trouble getting around to them all. But that was countered by always being able to look up from wherever we were in the room and seeing the floor packed with people having the time of their lives — one of our best memories of that day.

It is inevitable that whenever people mention of our wedding we hear comments about how great the band was — to which we wholeheartedly agree.

AnnMari and I cannot say enough good things about you and have recommended you to anyone looking for a band. If you ever need a testimonial, do not hesitate to pass on our number.

Thanks again for making our wedding such a wonderful time.

Dear Rich and Shanti,

Thank you so much for providing outstanding music for our wedding. Cathy and I knew that you would do an excellent job and you did. Everyone raved to us about how great the music was. We, and everyone else, had a blast dancing the night away. My only complaint is that it went by so fast! We will recommend you to anyone who asks if we know a good band. And of course, feel free to use us as a reference in the future.

Dear Rich and Shanti,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter, Lisa’s wedding the most wonderful affair possible.You are the greatest! I have never attended an affair where the band was as sensitive and as professional as you were to every detail. From the moment the wedding began, the place rocked. As I searched out guests to thank them for coming, they were not to be found at their tables because they were all on the dance floor — from Lisa and Barry’s friends to relatives in their 80’s. Your sensitivity and professionalism met the needs of everyone. Every song request that we even mentioned to you in passing was remembered.

My heart was especially touched when you remembered that my husband, Joe, really wanted to play harmonica at the wedding. Although he did not bring one with him and had shrugged off playing, you guys pulled one out for him and his long awaited wish was fulfilled. He loved playing and the guests loved it as well.

We have received many calls from guests and they have all been raving about the band… The only complaint was sore feet!

Thank you thank you, thank you. You are the greatest!

With all our love and gratitude,
Linda and Joe (Mom and Dad)
Wedding of Lisa and Barry

The best advice I can give anyone making a wedding is to get a great band. The band makes the wedding. The better the band, the better the wedding.

Dear Rich and New York Edge,

Thank you for helping to make our wedding better than we could have dreamed it would be. From our first dance to “At Last” throughout the entire evening, the band was wonderful, fun and full of energy. We absolutely recommend NY Edge and we can’t wait to attend another party which you perform at. Thanks again.

Dear Rich and Shanti,

Brian and I can not put into words how much we enjoyed your talent and professionalism.

Both Brian and I could not have enjoyed you more at our wedding and as my guest remind us — New York Edge Music “made the party top notch.”

I enclose some photos for you to have. And if you have any doubt as to how good you are, you’ll notice in the photo with Shanti singing and my brother and I dancing the lady in yellow behind us only had major hip replacement 4 weeks prior. When I asked her why she was up when she is still recovering she replied, “the band is so good I could not just sit and watch everyone else dance.”

Love Always,
Kerry and Brian
