  • Howard is fabulous! Our wedding was on Friday, I called him on Wednesday to ask for a saxophone player to be added to the jazz trio (I had a bridezilla moment!). He not only delivered at the 9th hour, but when I heard the saxophone I was overjoyed!!! It was the best playere i had ever heard. We received lots of compliments on the music and Howard treated us like we were old friends. He was great to work with.

  • I booked this vendor for my ceremony about 2 weeks before my wedding. Howard was so responsive and accommodating. I wanted a specific song played for my entrance so I had to locate the sheet music for strings before hand. I thought I'd found it but turns out it was for piano. He emailed a few friends to help search as well, but couldnt find it. The day before he reformatted the music for his musicians to play strings and the day of they sounded great for the ceremony. Extremely professional and communicative.

  • This band was great to work with. As a wedding coordinator, I truly value working with vendors that are professional and provide a high level of service. Not only did they exceed my expectation in both of these categories, they kept the energy up during the cocktail hour and reception. The result was a great and memorable wedding reception.

  • Howard was always accessible. All of our questions were answered. Our banquet manager had a hard time trying to get people to sit down and eat dinner! Friends and family continue to talk about the band, the music, and how they had such a great time. We felt like the music was customized for us. No generic playlists. What more could you ask for?

  • Mr. Franklin made sure that our day was just the way we wanted. They went above and beyond by learning a song they'd never played to ensure that our wedding was the most moving and memorable wedding that our friends and family have ever attended. I would highly recommend!

  • I cannot say enough about how amazing this band was on my wedding day! They truly made my reception an event to remember. A saxophonist played during the cocktail hour. They played the perfect tempo of music during dinner, and I got so many compliments from my guests...they even got everyone off their feet when dinner was over, and let one of my close friends get on the mic to get the party started! Howard Franklin, the band leader was the ultimate professional, and very responsive to any and every question I had for him along the way. I booked the band about 10 months out from the wedding and probably called/emailed him the entire time leading up to the day of and he was always curteous and open to my suggestions. All in all, I'd say the band was one of the best expenses I'm glad I invested in on my wedding day. They were just amazing.
