  • We hired Benny B. to play at our wedding in August after a long and frustrating search for a violinist. Obnoxious people and insane prices - we seen and heard it all. We were just about to give up on the whole violin idea when we accidentally discovered Benny on CL. From the first time we called Ben we knew that this guy will be playing our wedding and no one else. In every sense our experience dealing with him is nothing short of remarkable. Ben is a professional of an utmost grade (musicianship and business both). His music list is a mile long and when my wife asked for an old Jewish tune for our ceremony that he did not know, Benny voluntarily learned it and played it beautifully. First he entertained our guests by playing throughout the cocktail hour. The highlight was when Ben and our wedding band guys (they never met each other prior to that) started playing along like it's nothing and they do it every night. Our guests were happy and entertained and dancing before the actual wed... Read more

  • We were very happy with the service provided by Benny B. Ben worked with us to come up with the music we wanted at each phase of the wedding -- the ceremony, cocktail hour, lunch, and live dancing music. His mc'ing during lunch (introductions of toasts, etc.) was very smooth -- we just provided the schedule ahead of time and he made sure it happened. The ceremony music was beautiful (combination of mandolin and violin), and the 5-piece band fronted by Ben was great. The best part of all was that Ben and the band got our guests on their feet doing an energetic chair dance and some frenzied circle dancing, which is exactly what we wanted -- lots of laughter and people having a good time. I recommend Ben to anyone looking for a complete package of music/dance/mc services for their wedding -- we were glad that he was there. Thanks!

  • n, Thank you for everything. Your band was superb. I was sad to see the band Thank you for everything. Your band was superb. I was sad to see the band leave! The acoustic music worked out just perfect for the first bit. The hora was energized and so much fun! The DJ portion was fun. The games were fantastic. You had so much good energy and our friends had such a good time!

  • I truly can not recommend Ben Brussell and his band highly enough. Every single aspect of working with Ben was easy and actually a joy -communicating and planning my daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration. The band's music was extraordinary - beautiful and motivating and energizing. Ben and the musicians understood the mood and energy level and we literally had 100 people (children, teens and adults; Jews and non-Jews; dancers and non-dancers) all holding hands and twirling and swirling together on and on. It was a once in a lifetime experience. (Maybe twice in a lifetime - we will definitely hire them again for our son's Bar Mitzvah!)

  • Before my husband and I were even engaged, we had seen KLEZMANIA! perform at another friend's wedding, so we didn't hesitate to call Ben Brussell as soon as we decided that we wanted a band at our own wedding. We picked our wedding date around this band's availability, and luckily for us, it worked out wonderfully! The guys in KLEZMANIA! have a way of reading the crowd and determining what kind of music is appropriate for the moment, and their talents do not end there. The band's renditions of many popular songs sound a.m.a.z.i.n.g. -- even better than the originals, according to some of our guests! The wild hora set was a huge hit at our party: we heard rave reviews from those who are very experienced in Jewish dancing and also from those who'd never before witnessed a hora. Ben and his band-mates are inspiring musicians; their performance of a few songs during our wedding ceremony had guests in tears, and their background music during the cocktail hour was also very fitting for...

  • I loved Benny Be Music as DJ for our wedding. Benny let us pick out all our songs from an amazingly long list. He was totally flexible with the amount of time we wanted (unlike some other DJs we checked out, who had set minimum blocks of time). Benny is warm, professional, and a heck of a good musician (I've had the pleasure of seeing him play Klezmer too). You won't be disappointed!

  • Ben B is an awesome DJ! Many of our guest commented on how much they enjoyed his music (and we did too!). He was also extremely professional, nice, and responsive. We recommend him very highly.

  • Benny and his trio played at our wedding on 08/10/12. Their versatility and professionalism made our special occasional very memorable!! The ability to sing in italian and play classic mandolin really impressed our families. "Volaire" turned into a sing along during the dinner portion of our event and brought smiles to all. I can't say enough about his vast repertoire, instrumental skills, and sense of timing. We will definitely be hiring him again!!!

  • Benny really did a great job -- he was professional across the line. He knew the best way to rig the venue for sound -- sound that travelled but was never pointedly 'loud.' We also had what can only be described as a dizzing # of special tune requests at special times. Benny worked with us on all of that. The pre-event meeting was efficient and to the point. All in all we felt we received great value for the cost. (Probably the best value of any service we engaged that day, in terms of ROI.) I'd recommend Benny Be highly.
