- Teresa Andris & Jon Machmuller
City Rhythm rocked our wedding! They were so much fun and I've lost track of how many of our guests have given us unsolicited feedback about how much fun they had dancing to the music and how great the band was. They had everyone up on the dance floor and having a blast from start to finish. On top of the actual wedding day experience, they were a pleasure to work with leading up to the event. Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how important this is. There are so many things going on, but we knew that the band was one thing we absolutely didn't have to worry about. Pete was professional, responsive, overall great to work with. Leading up to the event City Rhythm had our full trust that the party would be a big hit, and it definitely was. We are so happy that we chose City Rhythm to perform at our wedding and would definitely recommend them to anyone for any event without a doubt. Thanks again City Rhythm, we're still sore how hard we danced all night!
