  • We hired Benny B Music/Ecco La Vita to play Italian music during our Welcome Dinner at Castello di Amorosa during our wedding weekend. They made the event so wonderful and everyone loved them! I just wish we lived locally in California so we could use them again. I highly recommend them! Very talented!

  • Ben has been absolutely great to work with! We reached out to Ben for a string trio for our wedding. Throughout the process, he was very prompt and incredibly friendly in communicating, and he has been very accommodating with our requests. We look forward to working with him again. Thank you, Ben!!!

  • Benny and his team did a wonderful job at our wedding. I was so stressed that people would not dance but Benny got everyone into it and even I was dancing all night. He really played to the crowd well. We were so happy with how it all came out, thank you Benny and team!

  • Benny was great! We hired Benny a few weeks out from the event and he was able to provide great service and direction during our planning process. He was very flexible and knowledgeable. He worked with a family member to provide accompaniment during during that family member's performance at the wedding. I whole-heartedly recommend Benny.

  • I've been to many weddings and I can honestly say there has never been a better band and/or dj than Benny. Now, in full disclosure, it is true that we had him for OUR wedding and so we might be a little biased. But I have objective reasons to give: 1) The acoustic band is as professional as it gets in the fact that these are all highly trained and skilled musicians. Their catalogue is extensive, but even if you have something that is not part of the standard repertoire - such as our recessional music - all they need is sheet music and it's good to go. Also, while I tend to be nervous about "cover" bands' vocals I can say that Benny added vocals to a few songs and they were great. One song in particular (it's been quite a while since so I forget the actual song it was) had a beautiful improvised long guitar intro that could have easily been heard at a concert and would have brought out serious applause. 2) Benny as DJ - Benny and I had a TON of communication well in advance of the we...

  • We were so lucky to have Benny and his string quartet perform at our wedding! We hired the String Theory Q played for 3.5 hours for pre-ceremony, cocktail hour and half of the reception (before the cake cutting). The live band made our wedding feel so classic and elegant, which is exactly the theme we wanted. We also hired Benny for his full DJ/MC package and he was awesome! We wasn't planned for dancing originally because we were worried about the space limitation and most of our guest might not want to. After the reception, one of our guests walked up to Ben and asked him if he could play some dance music. Benny accommodated the request and started the party. It was such a surprise to us and we ended up having so much fun! Thanks Ben! Overall, Benny is super professional, responsive and easy to work with. We'd highly recommend him to any couple who's looking for a wedding band! :)

  • We hired Benny for the Osher Marin JCC's annual Purim Palooza family carnival, and were delighted with the entire experience. He played traditional Jewish music with an interactive sing-along component, and accompanied his vocals on solo violin and mandolin. His music struck the perfect tone for the event, and played well in both our large theater space, as well as in our smaller atrium. Benny's music and engaging personality was a hit with visitors of all ages! Benny was an absolute pleasure to work with, before, during and following Purim Palooza. We will absolutely hire him for future events, and at some point, I hope to have the opportunity to hear his full band!

  • I just hired Benny and his team for a kiddush luncheon, and they were the perfect addition for the event. They kept the music playing for two hours straight and created the perfect atmosphere for people to enjoy their food and each other's company. They kept the music at a consistent level that allowed for conversation, but at the same time filled the room. As a party planner, I need to have dependable vendors, and Benny and his team are as good as it gets!

  • Ben was a pleasure to work with as we planned the music for our wedding. He met with us multiple times and was gracious and enthusiastic in offering suggestions and advice for how our event would come together. He learned special requests for our ceremony and put together a great group of musicians tailored to our day--a klezmer core that branched out into Irish folk, the American songbook, country, pop and more. Then he put on a new hat (literally!) and DJ'd the rest of the event, working from a list of songs we had put together and keeping the reception flowing. Ben is a true pro, and it's easy to see why he's so successful at what he does: He's having fun, which is key to everyone else have fun, too. Highly recommended!

  • We were delighted to have had an opportunity to work with Ben again for our most recent simcha. This time we began with Klezmania but then transitioned to having Ben as the DJ during our event. As with our last event, Klezmania filled our room with energy and joy. I wasn't sure before the event how well the transition to DJ would go but, to my relief and delight, Ben artfully made the shift and, before long, kids, teens, and adults were all dancing up a storm. Everyone was extremely pleased with the event and, as in the past, Ben was a pleasure to work with in all of our dealings. Todah Rabah!

  • Great to work with, very easy, memorable performers! We hired Benny & band for our wedding. We had them play our ceremony, processional, & music during brunch. We wanted a mix of jazz, more classical violin, and Kleitzmer music for after the huppah. Benny really delivered! The music was just what we wanted, and to this day our guests can't forget what a stellar performance they had witnessed. On the business end of things, Ben was great to work with. He understood my needs, and was easy going - yet organized. He was not too pushy, and understood that I needed time to make my decisions when it came to the wedding. He made great recommendations based on my needs and was a true pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding or a special event!

  • Benny and his crew create simply amazing music and their performances are always top notch. As an event planner, I have had the pleasure of working with Ben and he truly provides nothing but extreme professionalism and talent every step of the way. They work with crowd, get them up and dancing and leave everyone in a fantastic mood. I love working with Ben because I know my clients will be well taken care of. You will not be sorry if you hire him for your next event. He is the best!

  • My husband and I hired Ben to perform the violin and DJ for our wedding earlier this month. He did an amazing job. He kept me on track, helped develop a playlist for the ceremony and worked with myself and the other vendors in developing our timeline. He was responsive to emails, professional, easy to work with and on time for the event. The music at the reception was a huge success. He can read a crowd well, played a wide range of music and I think he got everyone, including my 97 year old grandmother, out of their seats! The wedding was a blast! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ and musician!

  • We hired Benny Be for our wedding in November, 2012. From the first meeting with him I immediately got a great vibe from him. He was very calm and easy to work with. He and I spoke during one of my many thousand questions leading up to the wedding, and every conversation he was extremely helpful and provide great guidance. Now comes the wedding day. I had to do absolutely nothing with regards to Benny's plans. He was true perfection. He started out our ceremony playing the violin, which was simply amazing, and continued through the cocktail hour. So elegant and relaxing, it made the guests very comfortable. Now comes the party!!!! He did such a fantastic job, played exactly the songs I requested and took recommendations from our guests, which I advised was ok prior to the event. Everyone said it was the best reception music they've ever heard and everyone had such an amazing time. If I have another event or a friend asks for a recommendation, I'd refer them to Benny any da... Read more

  • Benny Be performed at our wedding in Piedmont in October. We had originally chosen Ben because of all the positive reviews on Yelp and the fact that he seemed to have a lot of experience with Jewish weddings. Ben and a backup cellist did live music for the entire wedding: they played violin, mandolin, and cello for the ceremony, cocktails, and dinner, and then Ben MC/DJed for the toast and dancing. Ben is professional, patient, approachable; he made sure we had a shared understanding of music we wanted, and explained the different traditional songs that we might want for ceremony. They played both classical and traditional Jewish/Israelli music at the wedding ceremony. He also transcribed and adapted Sigur Ros' "Staralfur" for my wife's processional, which was great. Ben also sang before and after the ceremony, and as my friend Solomon said, the performance "gave the ceremony a certain air of authenticity". Ben was very responsive to the crowd and played a good range of mus... Read more
