Collingswood Grand Ballroom: Stephanie & Jamie Gregorian
Thank you so much for playing at our March 10th wedding. You made the evening so much fun. People were raving about you for weeks after and are still talking about it. That day meant so much to me, so thank you again for making it extra special! Keep rockin!
- Stephanie & Jamie Gregorian, The Grand Ballroom,
Indian Springs Country Club: Rachel & Rob Fisler
We just wanted to thank you so much for performing at our wedding. You guys were so amazing! We have people every day calling us to get your name and comment about how great you were. Our first dance song was performed perfectly. This is something we will never forget and we are so happy that your band was a part of it. Everyone's been saying it's the best wedding they've ever been to and we'd be lying if we didn't say that you and your band had so much to do with that. We have a few pictures of you performing and people dancing, having a blast and I will forward them on to you as soon as I can get them on the computer. We will forever recommend you to anyone who is looking for a band for any occasion. Thank you so much again!

Sheraton Philadelphia: Fox Chase Cancer Center Corporate Event
Just wanted to send a quick, but heartfelt, note to say "Thanks so much!" for the wonderful music you and the band provided. We have received lots of compliments and I wanted to be sure to tell you that! You were wonderful to work with and I would be happy to work as a reference for All About Me should you have a need. We will definitely be in touch when/if we have future events. Thanks!

Aronimink Country Club: Monica & Brian
How are you? I am sorry I didn't get to write you a thank you before we left on our honeymoon, but I wanted to let you know how AWESOME you sounded at our wedding. We had an amazing day, and so many people have told us how great our band was. Thank you for making our day so special. I really appreciate the time you took to help us choose the music and play (and even learn) the songs we wanted to hear at the wedding. Thank you SO MUCH! You were truly amazing. I didn't leave the dancefloor once the whole night, and Brian, who never dances, was even out on the dancefloor! I just can't thank you enough. You guys are awesome. And please pass on my thanks to Ed, who sounded fabulous playing the trumpet at our ceremony. Again, thank you for everything. You were one of the nicest and easiest vendors to work with. We returned home from
on Saturday, so I am trying to get back to reality, but it is hard. We have a lot of pictures of the band, so I will be sure to send them to you. Looking forward to talking to you soon! Hawaii

Penns Landing Caterers: Independence Blue Cross Holiday Party
Happy New Year! I just wanted to take the opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for helping to make our 2007 Holiday Party a success! I also appreciate your willingness to work with us on a few business matters prior to us committing. It shows that your company understands that business surpasses the night of the event in the form of exposure and future opportunities. I really enjoyed working with you and finally meeting you and all the members of the band. Again, thank you for a job well done. I look forward to working with you again.

The Boathouse: Dave & Regina Schmitt
We cannot thank you enough for playing our wedding. Live music was our top priority while planning the wedding and it certainly paid off. Everyone we have talked to says they can't remember the last time they had that much fun at a reception! I even saw some uncles dancing that haven't hit the dance floor in decades! This is all thanks to your great musicianship and flexibility. We were so touched that you arranged our first dance and father-daughter dance song just for us. The musicians in your band are amazing and really interacted with our guests to create an energetic atmosphere. Music is an important part of our lives. Thank you for making it an exceptional part of our wedding.
- Dave & Regina Schmitt, The Boathouse,
Cherry Hill, NJ
Pen Ryn Mansion: Maria & Bob Stumpf
WOW, WOW, WOW. I cannot thank you enough for helping make one of the most important days in our lives also one of the most memorable. You were unbelievable, more than we ever could have hoped for. Your talent as a band was only surpassed by your kindness.

The Down Town Club: Beth & Matt Gniazdowski
We wanted to email you and thank you for the AMAZING job the band did at our wedding on December 8! You guys looked great, sounded awesome, did everything perfect, and had everyone dancing! The thing that people commented on the most about our wedding was you guys - how fun you were and how great you sounded. Everyone loved all the choreography from the horn section and the Love Train line! We had many people ask us how we found you and there were a few that wanted your business card, so we told them about your website. The songs we asked you to learn were played so well - I can't thank you enough for that! My dad is so picky about music and the Glad All Over song is one of his favorites. He said he can't wait to see the video so he can hear it again because he thought you guys did such a good job with it! Sorry to be gushing, but you guys made our party fabulous and I am so glad we had you there! People also can't stop talking about Matt playing the cowbell - you made his night with that 🙂 You were all so easy and wonderful to work with too. Please pass this along to the rest of the guys - I hope we see you all at another wedding soon!!! Thank you again - you guys ROCK!!!"

Seaview Marriott: Mariann & Gerry
Mariann and I would like to thank you again for the great time we had, in a large part to All About Me Band, at our Seaview party on May 3rd. Your band fit so well in that room and with us. Again, it is something we will always remember. We'll pass along your business cards and check your site from time to time to try to catch All About Me Band at Ott's. Again thanks for the great Party!
- Mariann and Gerry, Seaview Marriott,
Pen Ryn Mansion: Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Jaques
We just wanted to let you know how wonderful the band was. Everyone could not stop talking about you guys! We even had someone ask for your info because they are interested in booking you! Thank you again for accomodating all our special requests! You guys really made our wedding spectacular!

Loews Philadelphia: Nancy Lutin
Just want you to know that the music for our wedding was wonderful. The music for the ceremony and cocktail hour was just right and set the mood for both perfectly. The band provided great sound and energy at the reception that we hoped for. They were terrific. We received many compliments from our guests about them. The All About Me band was a major ingredient in our wedding, being something we will always look back on with joy.
- Nancy Lutin, Mother of Bride, The Loews Hotel,
Sheraton Society Hill: Karli & David Ross
Dave and I just want to thank you for getting a great party going. We had soooooo much fun at our wedding and owe a lot of that to you. Guests could not stop raving about you and we can see why. We have never been so pleased with a band as we were with you. The music choices were phenomenal and that last song totally rocked - I (Karli) get gittery when I hear it on my ipod. Furthermore, thank you for all your help in organizing the night and being soooooo accomodating to our wedding needs. We loved you guys and wish you all the best. We hope to see you at future events. Please email us if you are ever playing at a bar close to Philly as we would love to hear you play again. You got our vote for best band! We have definitely spread the word about you guys and if we are ever in the market for a band for a big event we will definitely keep you in mind. Thanks again for making our wedding so much fun!

Congress Hall: Mark & Cynthia Dahn
Where do I start? Cynthia and I are still riding such a high from the wedding on Saturday. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Everything was perfect. The set list was amazing. You read our minds. The Jimmy Buffett songs you incorporated were spot on. Thank you for taking the time to learn them. Our guests continue to rave about the band and the "steel drummer" on the beach. You guys were a hit! When Cindy and I began the journey to plan our "beach" wedding, we knew two things: (i) we needed a great band that would work well with the beach surroundings; and (ii) we needed a beach location. Well,
and Congress Hall provided the perfect setting and All About Me really made it feel like a beach wedding. I think we hit a home run. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did. You are all very talented musicians and I only see a bright future for all of you. Good luck with everything and again thank you. Now, if I could think of another reason to have a party so that I can hire you again.... Cape May, NJ

Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia: Liz & Brad Kramer
Brad and I can't thank you enough for making our wedding SO special with your music. We are entirely lucky to have found such an amazingly talented band for our "big day". Claire de Lune was stunning! Thank you so much for playing it for us. Your music set the scene and we had so much fun dancing the night away. To this day our guests still ask about you guys!!!! Thank you for sharing your musical talents with us and our guests, you made our wedding spectacular and unforgettable. Forever appreciative!"

Philadelphia Marriott West: Kevin Viola
I want to say and give our sincere and heartfelt thanks to the All About Me Band, the best wedding band out there. I'm a musician and took enormous care and time to find the right band with the best song list and especially the best presence and excitement for my daughter's wedding. All About Me Band was absolutely number one even over some of the outrageously high-priced bands who didn't even come close to All About Me. They are so attentive, will learn songs for you, and when they play songs, you will be amazed how much they are just like the original artist. Forget the DJ, go with All About Me. Finally, the best compliment we can give is what everyone at our wedding said: "Where did you find this band, they are the BEST band we have ever heard! Ever!" I'm not kidding, everyone kept coming up to us and saying this. We thank them for making our day a dream to remember!
-Kevin Viola, Father of the Bride, Marriott,
Ballroom At The Ben: Molly Pendergrast
I just wanted to thank you so much and tell you what an amazing job you guys did at the wedding. You were definitely the talk of the night! Everyone has been saying how wonderful the band was. Please let me know if I can do anything - Im working on a formal thank you letter but it might take me awhile to get it out to you. But if you ever want to give my name and email to a prospective client I would be happy to talk to them and tell them how fabulous you guys were.
P.S. I am so sorry that the guests basically harrassed you guys into playing one more song and I'm so appreciative that you did:) Those last 30 mintues on the dancefloor were one of the highlights of the night for Chris and me!
-Molly Pendergrast, Ballroom at The Ben,
Ballroom At The Ben: Matt & Cristin Eanes
We are back from our honeymoon and getting back to the grind but I wanted to take a second to thank you for everything! Since October we have had so many rave reviews about the reception, the night in general, and especially you guys! You all really blew our expectations out of the water...the way you handled the day, playing some songs to get everyone comfortable and dancing during dinner, then cranking it up and keeping everyone on their feet. It was perfect and we cannot thank you all enough. We were pulled outside for pictures at one point and when we came back in to visit the rest of the tables, there was nobody sitting. Everyone was up and dancing! From the bridal party entrances, to the first dance being amazing allowing her uncle to sing with you guys, to the very last song! It was a perfect night for us both and you guys deserve so much credit. Everyone the next day was so blown away with how much fun you guys were and how they had never been to a wedding and danced so much! I'm positive you sold a number of our guests on using you guys in the future, I've already heard a few rumblings. Someone made a comment about how impressed they were with you in particular, how you kept everyone on schedule, the energy up, and organized. Thanks again for everything and we both wish we could do it all again in slow motion so we could get a chance to enjoy! If you are playing anywhere that we can come check you out please let us know...we would both love to see you guys again. Also, if you need a reference Cristin and I would be more than happy to be on your list. Couldn't have bigger fans!"

Cescaphe Ballroom: Michelle & Justin Porter
We are finally back from our honeymoon so we wanted to reach out to you ASAP to thank you once again. You and the band did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding. Hope you all had fun as well and enjoyed the food. You guys delivered better than we could have ever imagined! All of our guests loved you as well. We are still getting so many comments on how great and diverse you guys were all night long. Wonderwall was one of the best songs of the night! We will certainly keep you in mind for any recommendations going forward. Hope to meet sometime in the future again! We will say hello next time we catch you down at the casino! Thanks sooo much again!

Lime Spring Farm: Charlie & Amanda O’Malley
Amanda and I just wanted to thank you and your band again for being a part of our wedding. You guys were amazing and everyone kept telling us how great you sounded. Also, the intro music that you learned for us sounded fantastic and was exactly what we were looking for. We really appreciate how you were on top of everything, and were so incredibly easy to work with. Thanks again for everything!

Spring Mill Manor: Ashley & Matt Hershowitz
I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a super job and for just being amazing!! You made it spectacular! Many many of my friends commented on how great you all were. Just wanted you to know.

Free Library of Philadelphia: Bridget & Victor Guerino
I just wanted to thank you for doing such an awesome job at our wedding! Wow! We left Sunday for the honeymoon and just got back yesterday and we're just now seeing pictures, hearing stories etc. Everyone from the guests to the caterer was saying how impressive you guys were and how they have never seen people dance so much! Thanks for putting such a great song list together. We had an absolute blast and couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again! I will highly recommend All About Me! Thanks again!
-Bridget & Victor Guerino, Free Library of Philadelphia
We chose All About Me because when we heard a few bands live, they stood out as the best by far. Not only were they excellent musicians, but they provided amazing entertainment and really interacted with everyone. I HIGHLY recommend them! The band makes the wedding, and they were absolutely perfect!
