City Rhythm Band: Live Wedding Band in Philadelphia

Laurie-Eric: Wedding

September 14, 2006

Dear Pete and City Rhythm,

You were just incredible at Laurie and Eric’s wedding last Saturday. The entire event was just so great and family and friends cannot stop talking about the band, the band, the band! Really, I just can’t thank you enough. I hope you all had as much fun sharing in the joy and happiness and energy of the night. I wish we had a "sound track" of the reception. If you wouldn’t mind sending us 2 more of your CD’s. We played it so much it’s now skipping. Your attention to the bridal party and families, mixture of music, cooperation with the club, and reading the crowd was wonderful! What a great party- thank you so much!

Carol Bardon

P.S. Thanks for the extra effort in preparation for "Yellow"

Syphard: Wedding

September 2006


Eric and I can’t say thank you enough for playing at our wedding in Stone Harbor. We both knew from the first time we heard City Rhythm on your website that you would be great but we had no idea! Your skilled professionalism completely blew us and our guests away. People can’t say enough about how good you were and I still can’t believe that the wait staff had to tell me to sit down and stop dancing so I could eat my dinner. It was truly and amazing night and we

couldn’t have picked a better band to share our wedding with. Thank you again so much- especially for making our first dance so amazing. Hope to see you again soon!

Aermos: Wedding

February 2, 2005

Dear Pete,

A note to tell you what a wonderful celebration you and City Rhythm, created for Kerry and Ted Aermos’s wedding. The orchestra was superb and could not have asked for better music. Several of our guests have asked for your name and number and will likely ask to engage you in their future. The celebration was such a success and great fun thanks to City Rhythm Orchestra. You were also wonderful and pleasant to work with. The Greek music was great!

Best Regards,

It’s been a month since our wonderful wedding and people are still talking about how fabulous everything was. I think the #1 vote setter was definitely your band. You did an awesome job and everyone raved about how much fun they had because of the great music. We cannot thank you enough and will definitely put you at the top of our recommendations. Many Thanks.

Bittmann: Wedding

Dear Pete,

I cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding reception such a great party. The band was incredible and kept the whole group up dancing. Our family and friends are still talking about what a great time they had. Happy New Year and we hope to see you in Avalon this summer!

Rosenberg: Wedding, October 30, 2002

October 30, 2002

Dear Pete,

Traci and I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the band for helping to make our wedding night everything that we hoped for and more. We were completely satisfied with the professionalism and style with which City Rhythm approached our special day, and we would, and will, recommend the band to any of our friends, family, and colleagues who were not in attendance at our wedding. You should feel free to give my name and phone number to potential clients seeking a reference. I particularly appreciated the timely manner with which you and Nick returned my calls and responded to my questions and concerns regarding the performance. Most of all, of course, we were simply thrilled and impressed with the performance itself, from the ceremony music, to the dinner entertainment, to the party. We received many compliments on "our music" and it is only fair to pass along those compliments to you and the rest of the band. We look forward to attending a City Rhythm performance at some point in the future.

Thank you, again, for helping to make our wedding special.

Dear City Rhythm,

We wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. You truly made the reception a blast not only for us, but also for our guests! We can’t even begin to count the number of people who commented to us how absolutely wonderful and awesome the band was that we had playing. We’re sorry that we didn’t have an opportunity to personally thank you as we would have liked to. Thank you so much for helping to make our reception a perfect one! We can’t wait to hear you play again

Fruscin: Wedding

April 27, 2002

Hi Everyone,

Just want to say thanks for a wonderful job you did at our son’s wedding on Saturday April 27th at the Rittenhouse Hotel. Sorry my husband and I did not get a chance to speak with you during the evening. We had a ball, as did our family and friends. You had us up and dancing the whole evening. We could not believe how quickly the time went by. Thank you for doing a wonderful job on "Forever Young" when I danced with my son Louie.


Margeali Fruscin

P.S. We came to hear you last year at the 5 Spot and knew then you would be perfect at our son and now daughter in-laws wedding reception.

P.P.S Please let me know how I can order your CD’s.

You certainly captured the energy and mood of the reception, so thank you! CRO gave us a perfectly memorable wedding reception and we look forward to hearing the band play again.

Jones: Wedding

May 2001

Dear City Rhythm Orchestra,

This thank you note is so terribly late but by no means an indication for how wonderful your performance was at our May 2001 wedding. Please accept our apologies for this long overdue letter. The band was a terrific hit and we’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests- both old and young. Your willingness to play more for a great party and less like a traditional wedding was fantastic. Thank you for your professionalism, charm, energy, and above all amazing music. CRO was perfect and made our reception a wonderful, fun event. All our friends who are getting married in the area have heard our praise for the band and we’d be happy to serve as references in the future.

Many, many thanks again,

Steve and Sarah Jones

Joe-Debbie: Holiday Party

Mark-Jennifer: Wedding

August 19, 2000

Dear Pete and Nick,

We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you how much we enjoyed the "City Rhythm Orchestra’s" first class performances at our daughters wedding at The Racquet Club on August 19th.  The sensitive strains for romantic moments and the upbeat, big band fun filled tempos for lively dancing played an integral part in creating and directing the mood and flow of the reception. The guests could not just hear the music but see it and feel it as well. We have had many positive comments about the band’s high level quality of entertainment and musicianship.

Thank you so much for helping to make Jennifer and Mark’s wedding a memorable occasion.

10th Annual Singles Charity Ball

February 14, 2000

Dear Pete,

Many thanks for your wonderful participation at our 10th Annual Singles Charity Ball. Your group and music was a big hit and your name alone helped tremendously with getting our numbers up for pre-registration. As a result, our party was an overwhelming success. We had over 2,600 attendees at our yearly extravaganza. Financially, we raised a lot of money, I am sure you will be happy to know that every cent of our proceeds goes for breast cancer research and education and free mammograms for the undeserved community. I’m also sure that knowing where your efforts are going will make you and your company proud. We all thank and commend you.

Loews Philadelphia Hotel: Foody-Toner Wedding

WOW!  The trifecta of weddings!  Pete and the Band were beyond AWESOME!  Most likely my only regret not having a fourth daughter is that I'm going to miss them. 

Please pass on our THANKS!
