I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed working with you, and having you all on-site for our event! I have received so many compliments. The music is something quite important to our host and he was so pleased. Thanks again and will be in touch once we have a date for next year as we’d love to have you back!

Thank you so much for everything! It was an absolute pleasure working with you guys and we will have to find out about that record so that we can be sure to announce it at the next party! Ash loved the band, in fact he said we should’ve had it longer. You will be the first ones we call to start planning the next one. So happy to have met.

Always a pleasure to have Chuck Braman and team in the house! I could listen to their smooth jazz all night! How great to be back in person and to have this long standing relationship with such great musicians!

You all were fantastic. I can't tell you how many people we spoke with who just loved the jazz throughout the reception.
Lane Wilson, Thank-you Note, Wedding, May 28, 2022, Saxophone Quartet (Jazz Saxophonist, lead instrument)
My heart is full of gratitude for your presence at yesterday’s celebration of my dad’s life. He would have loved it! It would’ve been “right up his alley”. Everyone there who knew him so well was blown away by the music and how fitting it was for my dad. It was perfect and magical. And you, yourself, are an amazingly warm and kind man. It still amazes me that I found you online. I think my father may have had something to do with it! ; )
Geri Tepedino, Thank-you Note, Memorial Service, Jazz band rental March 5, 2022; Saxophone Quartet (Jazz Saxophonist, lead instrument)
You Paul, and Matt made the night very special. Your music pushed the evening out of the realm of “dinner party” and into the realm of “night to remember.” It was wonderful. Thank you for your professionalism and responsiveness throughout the planning process, too. I greatly appreciated your quick responses and how easy you were to work with.
Caitlin Cunnane, Thank-you Note, Birthday Party, March 5, 2022; Guitar Trio (Jazz Guitarist, lead instrument)
I wanted to thank you all personally (one more time) for the incredible music you provided Saturday night at my daughter's wedding reception at the Bowery Hotel. You created the perfect atmosphere with your song selections and sound! I told Chuck how I was absolutely blown away by your collective talent and musicianship. We felt like we hit the jackpot for live music and musicians. Chuck forwarded me your respective websites and information which I forwarded to my daughter and son-in-law (the ones who actually live in NYC). So I'm sure they'll be coming to see you at a future gig in the city—so they can brag to their friends how each of you played at "their" wedding. I hope we can do it again somewhere down the road. I wish you all continued success & happiness with your musical careers.

You’re just good people who are great at what you do and don’t have egos. I really appreciate that in all walks of life. Too many people are mediocre at what they do and have egos larger than they should!

I'm still rather speechless at how amazing our wedding felt for me, and you and your band were a major part of it. Now that we are back from our honeymoon (pardon our delay!), we are hearing our friends sing your praises as well! It's so much fun to relive. Thank you for making our evening so very special for us. You have been so great to us from the very beginning—a true gentleman, and professional. We were beyond blessed to have you for our evening.

I was just about to email you :) Thank you so much for being part of our wedding. You were a true delight to work with. You and your team made the reception more than just a “brunch.” The trio was the best part of the entire thing! We could not be happier we chose you. There are not enough words to express our gratitude.
Also, playing the song I wanted to dedicate to German was the icing on the cake! Please give all my gratitude to the pianist! Thank you for the compliments :) but really He was the hero of the hour…
