Hartefeld National Golf Club: Crossley-Labruyere Wedding, June 19, 2009

June 19, 2009

Dear Shavin,

We cannot thank you and the band enough for your outstanding performance at our wedding.  We are still hearing from friends and relatives about how "our" band is the best wedding band they have ever heard.  For me, the fact that you took the time to learn our wedding song and worked with me to keep it a secret from Ken until that day was really amazing, almost as amazing as Ken's face when he recognized the opening lines to the David Bowie song!  He told me that he was just blown away at your rendition of the song and how perfectly it was played. 

Thanks again for making our day exactly what we hoped it would be!  Feel free to reprint this anywhere you like!

Concordville Inn: Good-Gondolfo Wedding, May 8, 2009

May 8, 2009

Dear Shavin,Michael and I absolutely loved having your band at our reception! You guys really made the evening wonderful. Our guests still tell us how much they enjoyed the band.  We really loved how you got people onto the dance floor.  Our special request for you to do The Hokey Pokey was great, with all of the kids and adults laughing and having a great time.  We especially appreciate the time you spent prior to the wedding, working with Michael to help him prepare the song he sang to me.  It was a very special part of the evening.

Our day was perfect, and you were a big part of it. Thank you very much!Michael and Sarah GondolfoBride and Groom

Rivercrest Country Club: Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce Charity Ball, March 7th 2009

Hello Shavin, Many thanks to you and the band for everything that you did to make the Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce's 2009 Charity Ball such a success!  The music was wonderful, and everybody had a great time - evidenced by the packed dance floor up until your very last song!  Also, thank you for helping out with the announcements during the silent auctions -- you made the auctions very easy for me to manage, and I truly appreciated that.  We have heard nothing but great feedback about you for all of our guests - you definitely got the party started and kept it going!

I would be happy to provide a reference for anyone considering Midnight Hour in the future!

Thanks again,

James Creese Student Center: Drexel Through The Decades Gala May 2, 2009

I would like to thank Midnight Hour for their fantastic job at the University Gala on May 2nd.  They were flexible when needed, always professional, and most importantly, amazing musicians.  Our guests enjoyed the variety of music provided, as well as the fun stage presence. 

Thanks Again,

Rivercrest Golf Club: Stout-O’Leary Wedding February 7, 2009

Midnight Hour is Fantastic!  They brought such an atmosphere of fun, excitement, and happiness to our wedding reception.  All of our guests commented on how spectacular the band was, and how they made the event 'above and beyond' any other wedding that they had ever attended.  The musical abilities of the band members and the variety of vocals makes almost any song you would like available for you to use - including the theme song from "The Simpson's," which the band played as we entered the ballroom.  Additionally, Pepper (the band leader) brought a ton of great ideas when we met with him to discuss our reception, and he worked with us to bring creativity into the Father/Daughter dance, our entrance song, the bouquet toss, and our first dance.  They are so much fun to work with and we would use them again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much!

Amber and James O’Leary

Crowne Plaza Valley Forge: Goldberg-Flis Wedding December 27, 2008

Midnight Hour had everyone on the dance floor from the beginning of the reception to the very end. We were more than impressed by their performance! They exceeded our expectations - our guests loved every song & danced the night away. Thanks for helping us throw a truly amazing wedding celebration.  You guys were awesome!

Belle Voir Manor: Wieczorek-Greblunas Wedding November 1, 2008

We absolutely loved having Midnight Hour play for our wedding.  I can't tell you how much John and I LOVED the music!!!!!!!!!!!  Our guests were telling us throughout the evening (and long after the wedding) how much they enjoyed the music and thought you guys were fabulous.  I'm so excited that you will be playing for my brother's wedding in July 2009...as John and I will get to groove to Midnight Hour again!!! 

Also, thank you for being so accomodating to our requests.  My dad's polka sounded fantastic on your system....I cant believe it sounded that good.  By the way, you guys also play a mean polka as well! The Brian Setzer song you guys learned was perfect...literally....it couldnt have been better.  

What seemed so great was that I felt like the band has a great time playing music together...you can see it and hear it!!! I will always recommend Midnight Hour to friends and family.  I really feel like the band made our wedding perfect. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Hotel Sofitel: Strauss-Hagarty Wedding, October 18, 2008

October 18, 2008

Midnight Hour was outstanding. Their sound was great, they played lots of different types of music, which was perfect for our diverse group, they played and didn't talk a lot, just as we wanted. We loved them, as did our guests. And, the dance floor was packed all night--the ultimate tribute!

Thank you to Midnight Hour!

Radnor Hotel: Horowitz-Wzorek Wedding, October 4, 2008

October 4, 2008

I cannot think of enough superlatives to attribute to Midnight Hour. You just played at my daughter's wedding on October 4th. I knew when I heard the clip that your group was terrific, but you were above and beyond. One of my biggest fears was that no one would dance at the affair. That fear left quickly. Your sound is unbelievable, your members are talented (understatement), professional, and accomodating. There were more calls the next days than I could count. The music was diverse, not too loud, and helped to create the wedding of our dreams. I cannot thank you enough.

Currents Ballroom at the Adventure Aquarium: NACE National Conference Annual Gala

Midnight Hour was incredible! From their professionalism to their outstanding musicianship, they kept us on the dance floor the entire night. From singing along with the band, to strutting our dance moves, we had such a great time! Dancing was a fun way to catch up with all of our NACE friends from around the nation.

The Down Town Club: Lawler-Dombroski Wedding, September 19, 2008

September 19, 2008

Hi Shavin!

Midnight Hour surpassed our expectations! Since we did not have a receiving line at the church, our plan was to get around to as many tables as possible at the reception. Our plan happily failed! We made it to three out of fourteen tables because the band had our guests (and ourselves) on the dance floor the entire night! We have since heard many wonderful things about Midnight Hour and the music selection from our family and friends and we are so pleased that you were such a big part of our day. Thanks for making our wedding reception a night we will never forget!

Stone Harbor Country Club: Flanders-Smith Wedding, September 6, 2008

September 6, 2008

Dear Shavin and Midnight Hour,

Thank you all so so much for putting on such an amazing show for our friends and family last night. Whenwe saw you play for the first time about a year ago we were blown away and told everyone that they were in for a really great time atour wedding. Fortunately, you not only proved us right, but you far exceeded our expectations! You sounded so fantastic and everyone told us so. Everyone wanted to know how we got in touch with you, and the consensus was that you were the best band anyone had ever heard at a wedding! Although tropical storm Hanna threatened to make our wedding a washout, you managed to take everyone's mind off the weather and had everyone dancing the entire night...we really are grateful to you all.

Private Residence: Surprise 40th Birthday Party

I went to a party on Friday night and Midnight Hour was there. They were excellent and really made the night. Often the band is something to have for just some of the entertainment, but not at this party! They really were impressive and the range of music really brought people together. If I knew they were performing at an upcoming event, I would go out of my way to be there!

Dear Shavin & Midnight Hour,

Breck and I cannot thank you enough for your performance at our wedding on Saturday night at the DuPont Country Club. Shavin, I could not have asked for a better band leader -- I loved working with you, and appreciate your dedication as well as your suggestions. Our guests were enthralled by the band, and I had an incredible time thanks to you! Thank you for making the night so special!

Ocean City Yacht Club: Inglesby-Olek Wedding, June 2008

June 2008

Wow, wow, wow! We can't thank you and Midnight Hour enough for helping to make our reception a major success. Hope you and the band had as much fun as we did on June 14th! Weeks after the wedding, we continue to receive over the top compliments on how amazing the band sounded. You did an excellent job keeping the energy up, and everyone dancing from beginning to end. The announcements and order of events were seamless, and you didn't miss a beat. You were so accommodating throughout the whole planning process, making sure the reception flowed just how we wanted and that all of our special songs were played. You were great to work around our choreographed first dance, letting my fatherget up and do a few songs with the band, as well as making room for Mike to perform with his friend. It was truly the time of our lives! A recent compliment we received was that you were the best wedding band one of our guests had ever heard...and she's "heard a lot of wedding bands". Again, thank you for all you did and for making Midnight Hour's pure talent a huge part of our special day. I know we will be recommending your services well into the future, and I'm sure our guests will, too!

Thanks again and take care,

Paige and Mike Ingelsby

Flanders Hotel: MacCoy-Zaprala Wedding, May 31, 2008

May 31, 2008

Shavin, we can't thank you enough for your phenomenal performance at our wedding at The Flanders! Everyone was raving about the energy levels of the wedding's dance floor. We can't express our level of satisfaction in words, but I especially would like to thank you for the bridal party entrance music - that was the funkiest version of the Theme From 2001 that I've ever heard. Your whole approach to our reception, from the cocktail hour to the after party, was very professional and met all of our needs. Thanks Again!!!

Normandy Farms-Silo Ballroom: Wojcik-Armstrong Wedding, May 3, 2008

May 3, 2008

On behalf of my wife Allison, her family, my family, and myself, I would like to extend our deep appreciation for the work Midnight Hour put forth on our special day. I can't tell you how many compliments we've received for the outstanding job you did. We truly couldn't have asked for a better performance. On a personal note, Allison and I loved your rendition of "This Year's Love"by David Grey. I hope you add it to your song list, because other couples would have to feel honored to have such a beautiful rendition played for them.

Excellent work! Thanks again!

Pinecrest Country Club: Gasbarre-McCracken Wedding, December 8, 2007

December 8, 2007

We had Midnight Hour at our Wedding on December 8, 2007, and they were the life of the party! The bandleader, Shavin Duffy, was absolutely great to work with in the weeks leading up to our event. At our wedding reception, from the bridal party being introduced to Christmas music, to our first song (which the band learned for us and did aGREAT job with), to the band learning and playing "Fins", we can't even put in words how pleased we were! We are still getting compliments from everyone! We have to say, the only complaint we have is that the night went way too fast! We would like to sincerely thank Midnight Hour for making our wedding reception more special and fun than we could have ever imagined!

Wilmington Country Club: Holiday Party for Ashby & Geddes

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed having Midnight Hour play at our party. I can't tell you how many people were raving over them! Brandywine Valley Talent and Midnight Hour made my job of finding a band for our holiday party much easier than I could have ever imagined!

Thanks again-

October 27, 2007

Midnight Hour was PHENOMENAL! We got countless comments throughout the night about your performance. Great Job on the Led Zeppelin song! It was such a great night!

Kristen & Brian

We had the pleasure of having Midnight Hour at our daughter's wedding on October 27, 2007 in Camp Hill, PA. The band was absolutely awesome. Everyone was dancing--both old and young. Many people commented on how great the band was. We even extended the reception since no one wanted to leave. Wish we could do it all over again!! Thanks again to Midnight Hour.

Pen Ryn: Seaner-Brown Wedding, June 9, 2007

To The Midnight Hour Band,

Wow, what can we say that would do your band justice. I first saw your band online and requested a DVD. We listened to it and loved it.Then we came to the "Showcase of Bands" at the Crowne Plaza and we were hooked. We met Shavin and Tiny and the rest is history.We couldn't wait for the reception. We knew everything was going to be great. We had a fabulous reception site and great band. A great band I said, was I wrong! We had a fantastic band. Idon’t think the dance floor was ever empty, even during dinner. I can't tell you how many quests came up to inquire about your band. We had guests that don't normally dance out on the dance floor. My son said to me that he had to look up at you a number of times to see if you were really singing because is sounded so good, he thought it was a CD. We didn't get a chance to talk with you during or after the reception, but my husband and I wanted to thank you for the outstanding job your band did and how much we enjoyed the music. I'm sure we will be recommending you quite often, because after the "bride &groom" you were the hit of the night. Thanks again and keep playing such wonderful music.

Montrose Inn: Kennedy-Devries Wedding, May 5, 2007

I have not had a chance to send out anything to the band but could you please extend my thanks, for making everything flow so seamlessly the night of the wedding! Mark and I picked Midnight Hour based on a quick showcase performance and were not really sure what we were getting into with them ~ they were the "unknown" of the wedding...but I received more compliments on the band than almost anything else...They could tell how the quests were responding to certain styles and just kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! They were great ~ so please extend to them my thanks and appreciation!



Westin Providence RI: Austism Society of America

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know what a great job Midnight Hour did Friday night at the ASA even in Providence, RI. It's great when you have the guests chanting one more song and the dance floor is still full at the end of the event.


Mendenhall Inn: Metzgar-Huppman, October 14, 2006

October 14, 2006

Hi Shavin,

Oh my God....what a wonderful performance your band did for our wedding. We have received so many compliments about he wedding and your band. Of course, Rob and I agree. The difference between a good wedding and a great wedding is the music, and we believe you made our wedding great!!!!! Thank you so much! Several people have asked for your contact information, so maybe you will be getting some calls for future events.That would be fine with us as we may be invited to those events and then we would get to hear you again.

Thank you so much!!
