"The whole evening was outstanding! It was the band.  Such spirit in the room, so much dancing! There was hardly anybody at their tables--everyone was out on the dance floor!  You guys sure how know how to throw a party! Thanks again for making Rachel and Austin's wedding so special!  People from both coasts told me it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to in their life!"


Betsy O.

Mother of the Bride

You were wonderful. The range of your repertoire was truly amazing. The variety of traditional music interspersed with music from the 40's on to contemporary made for great dancing and offered something for everyone. We all had a blast. Also, having a dance leader was a terrific addition. For those of us who had no previous experience with ethnic dancing, it really helped get everyone into the spirit.


Marilyn and Fred O.

Parents of the Bride

WOW! I knew the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band was good, but you were all fantastic! I am still hearing raves about how wonderful the music was at the wedding. You really made the evening, and we could not be more pleased! You knew what would connect with everyone, and when adding the warmth and cheer, that made the evening just what we had hoped it would be--perfect! Thank you so much for managing all of our requests while making such beautiful music for us. You made the moment and the memories!<0/p>

You guys were awesome. Kept the ruach going, went with the crowd, great mix of klezmer and "modern simcha" music. We could not have been more pleased. It was great! There was so much energy in the room, and you were so important to that! Many thanks for helping to make it such a wonderful leibedek (lively) event!


Shira W.


I second my mom's response. We couldn't be happier with all the work you did! The music was amazing and the vibe you created was unique and exactly what we wanted! Our friends and family loved you and had an amazing time. I'm so glad everything worked out so perfectly!! Thank you so much for everything!!!

The wedding was perfect and the band amazing. Everyone danced and danced. We are still all aglow just thinking about it. It is hard to get back to reality after spending a year planning it. Ari and Jonah were just so happy. The wedding was magical--almost like a fairy land.
