Creating the ultimate entertainment demands continuously new and original ideas, plentiful options, and unique elements of surprise. The typical “standard” timelines many use is the opposite of an engaged act’s behavior. Instead, every event Sound Connection produces has its own flow in real time.
Sound Connection is an internationally award-winning ten piece party band. The powerful four lead singers and incredibly talented musicians (including horns) pull guests into the drama. Andy oversees every detail, from sight to sound.
Sound Connection has traveled the globe, working with celebrities, choreographers, dancers, and other event producers to create unforgettable celebrations for both corporate and private social events of every size and purpose. Their reputation is reflected by the quality of those who book them.
For example, Washingtonian Bride & Groom Magazine asked Sound Connection to perform during their exclusive Vera Wang wedding fashion show. As appeared in the magazine, Event Industry leaders voted SC the metro area’s Top Band for the second year in a row!
Recently, Sound Connection were the headline performers for Mexican President Calderon, Manchester United Coach Sir Alex Ferguson, and 500 other VIP’s at the grand opening of OmniLife Stadium (Chivas Stadium) in Guadalajara. Needless to say, OmniLife’s owners were thrilled with the performance.
Celebrity event planners such as Colin Cowie (Oprah’s party planner), David Tutera (The View’s party expert), and Marcy Blum (Billy Joel’s planner) have worked with and continue to endorse SC because of their ability to “connect” with any crowd.
Hiring Sound Connection was like buying an insurance policy guaranteeing an amazing wedding and party. Andy knows how to design the music to make sure that the wedding is a celebration and a great time. Don’t think twice – if you want a wedding that every one will be talking about what a great time they had – hire Sound Connection.
Sound Connection played for our wedding reception in Bethesda, MD, and we can’t put into words how incredible they were. Even in the days leading up to the wedding, Andy Kushner was extremely responsive to us and accommodated our rather strict “do not play list,” took responsibility for bringing all of our intro and first dance songs, and agreed to read a long and comedic intro script for the bridal party entrances. At the reception, Sound Connection knew exactly how to read the mood of the crowd and adjust their music as appropriate. I was continually amazed with each successive song at how current they were or at what a great spin they put on older songs (when they played Party Rock the crowd was shocked and went wild!). We have been to many, many weddings over the past few years and there is no doubt in our minds that Sound Connection tops all of the other wedding bands we have heard. All of our guests – including professional musicians (Broadway, National Symphony Orchestra, recording artists, etc.) – just raved about the band, and they were the talk of our brunch the next morning. Our wedding band was the MOST important detail to us since we love to dance, and Sound Connection did not let us down. We are pretty sure that all of our engaged friends will be hiring them for their receptions! Absolutely amazing, first-rate performance – thank you Andy and Sound Connection!
We were blown away by Sound Connection’s energy, skill, and sound! We had high expectations after watching/listening to the online videos and recordings, but the band truly exceeded our expectations. Each member of the band was uniquely skilled in his/her instrument or vocals – Andy and the band did a great job of keeping our guests up and dancing for the entire night. Everyone we’ve spoken to since the reception has raved about the music in particular. Also, thanks to Andy for his flexibility during the reception. We made a few last minute procedural changes that Andy and the band happily accommodated. Overall, Sound Connection was the highlight of our wedding reception.
Hannah and I had the absolute time of our lives this weekend — and we cannot thank you and Sound Connection enough for creating such a high-energy party atmosphere full of amazing music! Our guests were left stunned by all of your talent, and we heard time and time again that night and this morning that this is the best live band our guests have ever seen at an event. And the way you kept all of our guests — from our friends in their 20s and 30s to our relatives in their 70s, 80s, and 90s — on their feet the entire night created an amazingly inclusive party for all of our guests. As you saw, when midnight struck we were all more inclined to keep singing and dancing then to go anywhere else! Thanks again!
