  • I'm a wedding coordinator, I work with a lot of bands and I can not say enough good things about my experience with City Connection Entertainment. Sal and Breena were extremely helpful and patient throughout the planning process. Even though we submitted special requests, after the due date, the band still learned the songs and my couple was beyond thrilled. Sal arranged for a fantastic solo guitarist for the ceremony. The dinner trio was jazzy and fun and the band, Energy, was amazing!!! They were so much fun on and off stage. The MC, Andre, was the best - every time he picked up the mic for the simplest announcements, he commanded the room in such a positive and engaging way. The whole evening was magical and so much of that had to do with the band. The dance floor was packed all night. If you're looking for great live music, 100% go with City Connection. Sal will hook you up with the best band for your style and budget. It will be one of the best choices you make during you... Read more

  • City Connection was a dream to work with from start to finish. Sal and his staff were a pleasure to work with. They were professional, reliable, flexible and very helpful. They not only provided outstanding entertainment but they also handled our lighting and sound system for the ceremony and reception. Our guests raved about the Band... "Into The Night". They were incredible!!!!

  • Sal and his team are professionals that know the music and entertainment industry inside and out. They were professional, on time, exceptionally talented and a good value. But Sal's experience goes beyond just music. He consulted on lighting and decor to create a truly once in a lifetime event for me and my now husband. Our wedding was unforgettable, and I can't thank Sal enough for everything he did to make it a special day for us.

  • Sal and his staff at city connection are top notch professionals. Sals' knowledge and music producer skills are exceptional. He never cookie cuts out the same event twice, whether it comes to the entertainment performance list, or speciality lighting. Each event is a unique, and creative expression of sals' amazing background, and he draws from an exceptional pedigree of talent for each event need. City connection is the one place that I know my clients will always be taken care of. Don't look any further for all your event needs, city connection is the one stop shop.

  • Sal and his team were so generous with the live entertainment that accompanied the DJ during the dinner reception. The extra two singers made such a difference and I really appreciate City Connection going the extra mile to learn new arrangements for the bride and groom's favorite themes from movies that were their # 1 selections for the first dance and Father /Daughter dance. Everyone on the team wanted to see this bride and groom have a wonderful night and they did!

  • Fantastic! My daughter is a preschool teacher and she married the owner of a toy store. Because of these unique professions their wedding had many touches of (to use popular wedding vernacular) "whimsy." My daughter wanted Disney songs for her first dance with her husband and for the Daddy/daughter dance. But because hers was a very formal wedding, I was concerned that recordings of Disney songs would sound really, really cheesy. So we didn't use recordings. Instead we hired City Connection Entertainment! Their singers and musicians turned those songs into the personal, meaningful moments we intended them to be. How amazing to have the immediacy and excitement of live music with the nearly unlimited library of a DJ! Speaking of DJ's, ours was fabulous! He was very thorough with his preparation and kept the party and the dancing going from beginning to end. He cued every toast, dance and event and the reception flowed flawlessly. I would definitely hire City Connection Entertainment ... Read more

  • Very well organized, prompt and professional. Excellent vocalists and musicians. Definitely would have them again if I had another wedding and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is planning a wedding and wanted live music.

  • City Connection was awesome!! Everyone at the wedding raved about the band "Into The Night". Sal was incredible. Worked with us on our budget and made the room look amazaing with his artistic touch. I can't say enough about how great of an experience we had with Sal and City Connection.

  • Of course with any event, communication was key. It is very rare that all parties involved are always on the same page, but City Connection Entertainment was extremely easy to work with and very responsive by both email and phone. The last thing any bride or groom wants to do on their wedding day is worry about band and music issues. With City Connection, we had no such worries. Even when we found out our solo guitar player had come down with an illness the day of, the problem was quickly resolved when the owner, Sal Kuenzler, stepped in to take his place. Both Sal and the band provided amazing performances that kept our guests dancing all night. It truly was the perfect day.

  • I don't even know where to start. I can't thank city connections enough for making my wedding day a blast. My guests are still talking about the day almost a month out. Sal Kuenzler and Breena were my contacts through city connections. Sal helped me hire the entertainment I was looking for. Once I decided Breena helps me through the process of everything required up to the day of the wedding. They are both very professional and easy to talk with. I hired a Quartet, a Magician Steve Silverman, and a live band Into The Night. The quartet played requests not on the playlist with out any problem. I hired them for the ceremony and through the cocktail hour. A few of my guest said I wonder if they could play stairway to heaven and the they started to play it the next song sitting nowhere near those guest. By the end of cocktail hour my guest were gathered around the quartet. Steve Silverman was great to make his way around to see most of my 240 guest. My guests are still trying to figure out...

  • These musicians do not come cheap, but it's a worthy expense if you want your party to be one people will still be talking about days or weeks later. My 130 wedding guests were blown away by the band's sound, and they did an excellent job working with us and our wedding coordinator to make sure the reception flowed just the way we wanted. Couldn't be happier!
