Wedding Reception

“I just wanted to send a huge thank you to Sound Nation for the tremendous performance they gave at our wedding reception. There was a perfect balance of dance music, slow songs, and music that was just right for quieter moments. …I also wanted to let you know that we had multiple guests who came from abroad to celebrate with us, and one in particular (from Rome) dubbed Sound Nation ‘the best band in the world!’ We received no end of additional compliments on how wonderful Sound Nation was, and we know exactly who to recommend if we hear that anyone is looking for a world class band.”

Rowena Santiago and Jeremy Kuris

“I just wanted to send a note to let you know how please we were with Sound Nation at our wedding. We wanted our wedding to be a big party from start to finish and Sound Nation made that happen. They did a fantastic job and everyone has been raving about the band!”

Carolyn Brosnihan

“They exceeded our wildest dreams. The crowd said it all. They danced all night The younger and more senior generations. The music was a wonderful mix and the young people barely sat down to eat. We had requested a large dance floor and every inch of it was used.”

Fred and Marjory Goldman

“I have NEVER been to a wedding where so many people danced for so long. As soon as they started, until the time they finished, people were on their feet” It is a month after our wedding and people are still calling to ask “Who was that band? How did you find them? They were awesome!” Their enthusiasm was definitely contagious. It is difficult to find a mix of such enthusiasm and professionalism. Sound Nation really MADE our wedding the special event that we were hoping for.”

Patrick and Jennifer LoPresto

“What a night! Thank you for making our wedding so memorable! Our family and friends are still raving about how much fun they had and how great you all were! Many of them told us they haven’t danced that much in years…Even the staff said it was one of the best wedding receptions they’ve had there… It will be a night that we will never forget!”

Sandra Khoury, Special Event Director, LIUNA

“Sound Nation had people out of their seats dancing and having a great time!  They were spectacular!  They were so easy to work with. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. I heard so many compliments during and after the event. I highly recommend this band and would definitely consider booking them again for future events.”

Linda Minor–Meetings Manager, ACOG

“Our employee party was a monumental success primarily because of Sound Nation. Word spread quickly that those who did not attend missed the best party ever!  The band was friendly, courteous, and professional. Guests loved the theme and enjoyed every tune. I announced to the band that all 350 guests were madly in love with them! They blew the roof off! Sound Nation was indeed a hit…”

 Joan C. Waters–SMECO Human Resources Department

“We had a great event on Saturday night, and it was due in large part to Sound Nation. Everyone thought the band was great, and they were right.  They did a version of “At Last” that was better than the original Etta James version!  Please give my thanks and compliments to the band members.”

Alan Kirschenbaum–Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C.

“The band did a great job and everyone loved them.  They were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.  Their song selections were spot on and their transitions from song to song were seamless (this is a pet peeve of mine) which I really appreciate.”
