WEDDINGS

  • I wanted to tell you how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING 20 Ride was. They FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. They were truly one of the highlights of our night and we received so many compliments from all of our guests. I honestly cannot say enough good things about them. They were so professional and so talented. The mix of music was perfect and kept everyone dancing and entertained. We will continue to sing their praises as we look back on our day.

  • I wanted to let you know how incredible Zack and Surround Sound were at the reception. The singlehandedly made the party a HUGE success! I have always been a music lover and concert goer but through my friendship with Eric Church and touring with them I have a new appreciation for the artist and off the stage business side. Hearing stories on the road from tour mangers, promoters, crew and musicians is something you never think about hanging out on the front row listening to a show downing your favorite beverage. I have heard all the “hot’ bands over the years (Simply Irresistible, Party on the Moon etc.) at wedding receptions, NC deb ball, Coral Bay Club and all the country clubs from Charlotte to Wilmington and all the other usual stops they make over the years. Hands down Surround Sound is already every bit as good as any of them. But what I was most impressed with is the way Zack carries himself and the band was a total reflection of that in everything they did from the minute the pulled in the driveway. As they were unloading Saturday morning, two of the Carolina Inn banquet staff made a point to come tell me, "I don’t know how they are gonna sound but they are by far the NICEST people to work with we have ever had here.” And that is the way we felt from the moment we talked to Zack the first time on the phone. His (and the band) professionalism and desire to do anything we wanted to make our reception the best ever was amazing. The entire band and their performance was incredible. I still have people stop me and say it was the best reception they have ever been to and who was the band? And they did it was a smile and nonstop energy. Too many times I see these “big time” bands putting on their show and not engaging the crowd. We all felt like we were part of the show and it was one big happy family. I sure felt like we got and incredible value with Surround Sound based on what I have seen from other bands and I hope they are on their way to bigger paydays soon. Not just because they are a great band but because they do it the right way with integrity and pride and are NICE people!

  • Simply Irresistible was beyond amazing. My guests from all over the world, told me that this was THE BEST wedding they had ever gone to. The band MADE the night!  I could not be more thrilled with how it went. I will recommend them and your company highly!!!!! Making the world healthier and happier!!!

  • The band (Simply Irresistible) did an amazing job!!! I feel you guys have gotten even more impressive since March. The choreography was great and you could feel how connected the band was. They were so in sync, such great energy. The guests were obsessed. I kept watching people dancing and then stopping to just stare at the band. It was phenomenal. Jamal killed it as the emcee. I wish I could have you guys as my band every weekend. The whole band is just so respectful and professional, always shaking hands and introducing themselves to everyone during set-up. You guys are the real deal!

  • Everything was GREAT!!!!  They ended up staying and hanging out with us afterwards while everyone was breaking down!  People are still raving about them!  If you guys want to do "charity" for a bride and groom, you can always have them play at my wedding for free or a really discounted price!! ha ha!!!  I just got engaged in September and they are the first band or any vendor that finally got me excited to start planning!  They were amazing!! The dance floor was full the whole time and the family was super happy! Anyway, thanks for everything.

  • There are no BIG enough words for me to express how happy I am, having worked with you for this past ICE.  The excitement and energy Jesse Girls and the band provided was beyond all that I could imagine.  WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!  They are AMAZING!

  • Jessie's Girls played our daughter's Wedding Saturday night. During the planning stages of the Wedding, your advice was once they start, don't stop them. Well we adhered to your plan and the party was like none other. The band had energy that no other affair I've attended has ever had. Jessie's Girls is the real deal. Thank you for making the memories ever lasting. Love to the band from the Lewis/ Yaffe Wedding!

    Rob Lewis Father of the Bride
  • All I can say is WOW!! Simply Irresistible played at my daughter’s wedding in April and I have been to five weddings since then and everyone is still talking about how our band was the best they have EVER heard! The dance floor was packed from the first note until the last when we were “literally” shut down at 2 am. Nobody wanted to leave!! The dance floor was so crowded, the videographer said it was the very tightest dance floor she had ever tried to video. The band’s high energy matched my daughter’s personality exactly and made the wedding PERFECT! I wish we had another wedding to plan so we could hire this band again….we are thinking maybe for an anniversary party! Thank you, thank you for the fabulous job you guys did and for being so great with the guests! You are simply AMAZING, simply IRRESISTIBLE, and simply THE BEST!!

  • We are still recovering from our Stowe wedding last Saturday, but I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the band. It has been unbelievable the positive comments we have received, no only from our guests but from the Stowe Mountain Resort staff, who see a lot more bands than we do.  The staff said they have never seen so many people dancing at the beginning of a reception and we were receiving comments that  the band was ”out of this world”. It sounded like they were happy with the condos for housing and I heard that Jason the band manager was great to work with. Please pass on our thoughts and appreciation to the band, they were a big hit, especially the West Virginia song they learned and added another dimension to the evening.

    Ken T. Father of the Bride
  • Thanks for your talent. We enjoyed every minute of it. I need to give your name to more brides and grooms!

  • One word - amazing! They (Simply Irresistible) were great to work with and we hope to have them again.

  • “It was excellent!  Our best crowd so far and Taylor (lead vocalist ) did a great job!   They were super nice to work with, very professional, showed up on time.  I'm sure the committee will consider repeating them next year when we start planning.” (Testimonial for 20 Ride)

  • As you know, I have been booking bands for over 30 years and I have never been more impressed by a band in my life! We were fortunate to have “Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters” for our 25th anniversary at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club last Saturday night. Their music, appearance, attitude and stage presence was better than I’ve ever seen. Jerry Freeman was first class and was responsive to every need and request that was made during the night. There will be lots of requests for this band from all of our members attending and I am looking forward to planning our next party, somewhere, where we can afford the 4 more horns!!! Big Swing has raised the bar and some of our old favorites should all witness the production, energy and class that this new band brings to the stage. Big Swing did it all and I hope we can bring them back soon!

  • Fight Night in January has become the thing to do in Charlotte. A great fundraiser, this event draws the who’s who out. Jessie’s Girls rocked the house this year when they hit the stage. I don’t think I have ever seen so many guys just stop in their tracks!

  • As a passenger handler for Pan American Airways, I put the Beatles on a Pan Am plane in London in 1964 as they set out to the United States for the Ed Sullivan Show. At age 70 I have been around. The Minneapolis performance by Jessie’s Girls on September 21, 2013, ranks up there with the best, the best I have ever seen and heard.

  • Big Swing was a huge success for the Wachovia Championship Block Party. I had several people tell me they liked them better than Chicago.

  • Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters were a huge hit at the 62nd North Carolina Azalea Festival’s 2009 Patron’s Party Gala. They played a great variety of music and had everyone on their feet on the dance floor. Multiple patrons and corporate sponsors expressed their appreciation and said they thought they were one of, if not, THE best band we have had preform at this event. I am happy to be a reference for them in the future, as I would highly recommend them without reservation to anyone!

  • Simply Irresistible was out of this world at the Heart Ball Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Trump and Andre Leon Tally loved them. Ronnie and his team truly made the evening very special. I will happily recommend them to any of my colleagues around the country.

  • We L-O-V-E-D them! I can’t get enough compliments on the band. We would just love to have them back.

SPECIAL EVENTS

  • Jessie’s Girls made me look like a hero on a recent event, and I just have to share some sentiments. To start, Jessie’s Girls absolutely CRUSHED a show for 6000 University of Delaware alumni in early June for me, and after years of working on this event, the school board and students have never raved this much about a band. Dainavon was incredibly receptive to allowing me to help with general input about this crowd (which I appreciated), but they hit the nail on the head with absolutely every song they played. The crowd went absolutely wild with each new medley as it started, and this band just has that “IT” factor. They look like stars, they perform like stars, but most importantly they treat everyone around them with the utmost respect. For the amazing talent coming out of that band, they are the so humble and gracious. I was incredibly impressed with the way Dainavon spoke to and worked with his band members, and his leadership skills are reserved and calm, but strong and apparent.  I absolutely LOVE working with this band, and each time I see them I’m more and more impressed with how consistent and genuine their kindness is, and how well they can connect with a crowd. AMAZING band led by a total Pro.

  • This past Saturday was our 13th annual Premier Gala, with over 950 people in attendance. I must say our event this year was by far our largest success, largely due to Party on the Moon's performance being way way “over the top”! Fabulous just doesn’t cut it...their energy level, interaction with the crowd and dancing, singing, acting …what a complete package. The next day your band, and our event, was the talk of the town. I have had at least 40 people come up to me after the event and tell me to make sure we book the band again for 2018, so please pencil in the date.

  • It was wonderful!  The whole team was so easy to work with and Jessie’s Girls did a phenomenal job!  Mrs. Barbier-Mueller (client) danced pretty much every dance once the full band started.  Last night she said:  “It’s a great party, isn’t it?” and today she texted me:  “Thanks for the best evening I could have ever imagined!”  So, I’d say it was a smashing success! I also owe you a very late thank you for the wonderful job you and POTM all did on the Hardison Wedding!  It is always such a pleasure to work with you and your teams!  You make our jobs easier and that means A LOT! Thank you!

  • There is not a better name for ‘Perfect 10’ band.  I can not even begin to explain to you how UNBELIEVABLE they were. They started out at the cocktail reception with beautiful background jazz music.  Our birthday reception (with 180 guests in attendence) was held in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz Carlton in South Beach.  They played NONSTOP from 8pm to 12pm and had every guest in the room dancing, singing, etc….. I provided them with a songlist (which included 60s, motown, rock & roll, Michael Jackson, and some hip hop). They revised my list and sent back a list of what they thought would be appropriate.  We all thought the original artists were in the room during every song they played. I am so happy I chose them and so thankful to you for helping me do so.  They will play for us again in the future.

  • Hey Jerry!!…You all are undoubtedly the most impressive and positively charged group of performers we work with. We truly meant that tag-team hug and couldn’t possibly begin to express the appropriate amount of gratitude for how you handled such a crazy situation with such poise… THAT WAS A CRAZY STORM!! So many bands would have refused to play!! And your ability to create a situation where guests hardly were even aware of the storm, b/c they were having such fun, was AMAZING.

  • I just wanted to let you both know how much we all enjoyed Jessie’s Girls at our Down East Deb Party. They were absolutely GREAT !!!! Everyone at the party had a wonderful time. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the band. Many people told us that it was the best party that they had ever been to! You deserve a big ‘Thank you’ for a fabulous evening.

    Susan Bailey
  • I hope you and all the bands ears are ok today. They should be burning like crazy. Everyone is raving about Jessie’s Girls! You were such a big part of creating an unforgettable memory for four young ladies and their parents. It was even better than we imagined it would be. I hope you had as much fun as we did. Thank you so much and I wish you all the best in 2012.

    Nancy Ellis
  • Thank you for creating the best party ever in Kansas City. We had a blast and have received rave reviews about Party on the Moon!! Turning 50 and we can still dance, jump and party!! Comments: Best Party Ever, Party of the Century, Party of the Decade. Top of the list. To me the band makes the party and you all did just that on Saturday Night!!!! We all had sore calf’s the next day! You are the best band in the country. Thank you and I hope you had a safe trip back to Atlanta. See you in the Bahamas for the Brooks wedding!

    Ellen Merriman
  • Thank you so much for suggesting Party On the Moon’s sister band, Simply Irresistible.  I want to have another party just to have them again!

    Margo Harrod
  • Simply Irresistible and Party on the Moon performed together at our event in October. The girls were amazing and the entire group wowed the guests. I think we could have left off the food and drinks and our guests would have still been intoxicated off these two (2) outstanding bands alone!
