Chase Center on the Riverfront: Grand Re-Opening Celebration 2

November 18, 2005

Dear Dave & Kurt,

We at Planning Factory International want to express our sincere thanks for your willingness to work together on the Chase Center Re-Dedication Celebration on Friday, November 18, 2005. You produced four amazing groups that worked perfectly with the "feel" of each room at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.

The Ellen Lebowitz Jazz Group was wonderful in the Christiana Ballroom; guests really enjoyed mingling around the room and listening to the group.

Conjunto 23 was great in the lobby; their dancers were extremely enthusiastic and quite talented!

The Tony Forliano Jazz Group was terrific; they were the perfect group to entertain guests in the Governors' Hall.

Finally, Jellyroll was fabulous!! They were high energy and so enthusiastic; you had the group dancing like crazy.

Thank you again for partnering with us; we truly enjoyed working with you and we look forward to working together again in the future!

Warm regards,

Cher and Kate

Holly Hedge Estate: Scholer-Fruscella Wedding

October 22, 2005

Dear Dave, Kurt, and the rest of Jellyroll,

Dave and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for the phenomenal job you did at our wedding! you all went so far above what we could have ever wished for- from Beyonce to Springsteen and everything in between, we barely got off of the dance floor! Our guests still haven't stopped talking about "the best wedding ever," and this was due in no small part to all of the awesome music. Thank you all for our hard work, flexibility, and positive attitudes. You truly helped give us the wedding of our dreams!

September 30, 2005

Dear Kurt and the rest of the Jellyroll band,

Thank you so much for making our wedding such an amazing event!  Your enthusiasm, professionalism and sheer excitement engaged all of our guests, the effect of which was tremendous.  There was little room left on the dance floor!  It truly was a party and a joyous celebration!   Thank you for encouraging and listening to our input and especially playing Sweet Caroline for my niece - you have a BIG fan in a 3 year old from Indiana! You were a joy to work with and made this big wedding detail an easy process!

Above all, many thanks to each of you for sharing your remarkable talents with all of us - you are truly gifted and your music has the ability to transcend the ages… we felt so lucky to have you there celebrating our special day.

We are looking forward to seeing you all soon - and celebrating many other happy occasions!

Hotel du Pont: Sandford-Sweatman Wedding

 September 23, 2005


I can't thank you and Jellyroll enough for all that you did. Our reception was perfect thanks to you and the music your amazing band was able to produce. Learning our wedding song and my own request for my wife was exceptional. We were worried that no one would dance, but it turns out that we had people on the floor all night, especially our guests from overseas who couldn't believe their ears. You guys were my wife's first choice and first decision when we became engaged and I completely understand why she quickly locked you in for our reception.

Chris and I really just wanted to e-mail you to thank you and the band for making our wedding such a great time. The music saved the day. We just got back from our honeymoon last Tuesday! The band is AWESOME and we have gotten rave reviews from all who attended…Thanks for letting my dad play with the band, it was a blast and really meant a lot to myself and him. Not too shabby, right? He did well.

Thanks again, looking forward to seeing the band very soon!!!!

Please extend our deepest thanks to the members of Jellyroll. It was your performance that gave Lisa and Ben the wedding of their dreams. I'll never forget your rendition of "You're All I Need to Get By" as long as I live and I've received several phone calls in Houston about that dance with my son, Ben.

I really don't have the words to express how wonderful Jellyroll was at our April 2nd wedding! You guys were so awesome!!! We didn't want to leave the dance floor!

Ballroom At The Ben: Feinblatt-Clarke Wedding

March 19, 2005

I cannot begin to thank you and Jellyroll enough. Our wedding on March 19th was amazing, it was such a fabulous party and it wouldn't have been the same without Jellyroll.

Working with you was so great, you made everything so easy and everything turned out exactly as we had hoped. The dance floor was packed all night and that was exactly what we had wanted at our wedding.

Everyone had a blast- I am not usually on the dance floor...and I barely left the dance floor all night! We are still getting raves from our guests about how amazing Jellyroll was.

From the introductions to the very last dance, every note was perfect. The song seletion was great and we couldn't be happier about how everything turned out.

Jellyroll is truly amazing- and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making all my wedding day dreams come true!

The Rittenhouse Hotel: McBride-Daniel Wedding

October 30, 2004

I am absolutely speechless- Jellyroll was superb! I never had a better time myself at a wedding, and I never saw people interacting with a band as they did last evening at The Rittenhouse. It was the energy and talent of the band that made the evening a resounding success. Everyone remarked that the band was the best! There truly was something for everyone. I would encourage anyone considering an event to turn the evening over to Jellyroll for a guaranteed fabulous time! Thank you and the bandmembers so much!

June 26, 2004

Perfect! Absolutely perfect!

Jellyroll went beyond even our expectations, and our guests are still
talking about "Laura's wedding".

Your performance was incredible...the dance floor was packed...and nobody wanted to leave...but the way you helped us through all of the planning, and accommodated our every request is what we will always remember.

From timing the background piece behind my speech, to learning new songs for the "Father/Bride" and "Mother/Groom" dances, to getting my son on-stage to sing Mustang Sally, you were there for us on this very special day.

Judy and I want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. You helped make our special day perfect, and we will never forget it.

Best to you and Jellyroll,

Words cannot describe my feelings of happiness for Leslie and Scott on the night of their wedding.  They did a lot of planning and researching to make the night speciale and it was.  But we did not know how very special you and the Jellyroll band were until that night.  I’m still getting phone calls and even the strongest critics are raving! You were sensational! I wanted to say thank you for being a super guy [Kurt] and thank you for your talent!

What can we say-except that you guys are the best!  The band sets the tone for the wedding and the tone all night was dance-dance-dance!  So many of our guests thought ti was the best wedding reception that they had ever attended and they are still talking about how great you are.  As you recall, I called you first when we got engaged because I had no doubt in my mind that you would make the night!

Thanks for the energy and party spirit.  Thanks also, for letting me sing with you-what a treat!  Looking forward to seeing you at Regina’s wedding in December.  Thanks again for everything!
