  • We felt so lucky that we had (with very little exception) wonderful vendors for our wedding. If I had to sum up the Carmine Band in one word, it would be: AWESOME. Our venue connected us with Carmine, and right off the bat he was a friendly, fun, cool person to talk with and had an easygoing but incredibly professional approach. We had a couple of calls with him before the wedding and just hung up each time feeling like we had a great conversation; we never had to stress about the details. They have a sound person who was phenomenal at setting up everything and also was able to do the mic our officiant needed for our outdoor ceremony. When the band's lead guitarist had an emergency, Carmine stepped in to play keyboard alongside our wonderful venue owner/coordinator and cellist, Molly, to make our ceremony music wishes happen. The band learned a song for our first dance, and it was so special for us. Their stage presence is something people are STILL talking about, over half a year late... Read more

  • We first saw the Carmine Band play up in the Portland area. They were so much fun - lively, a range of skills and instruments given it's an 8 piece band, with music for all generations. We are excited to party with them for our wedding next fall!

  • The Carmine Band was unbelievable! I come from a family of musicians, so I was looking for nothing but the best at my wedding and this band did not disappoint! In addition to sounding amazing, they were incredibly easy to work with, honored all of our requests, and made the evening very special! I would hire this band again in a heart beat!

  • The Carmine Band was absolutely incredible. They were wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end. They kept the crowd going!!!!! Six months later all our guests can talk about is how great the live music was. You know you have a great band when guests are referring to the band as "great live music" and not the "wedding band". If you are looking for a full band that can play everything from classic wedding songs to todays hits then this is your band. Carmine is so sweet. They will even learn new songs for you if you have a favorite they don't play. You will not be disappointed at all!

  • The Carmine Band exceeded all of our expectations. They made our wedding reception very memorable. Our guest are still talking about them months later. They have many voices and instruments that enables them to play all your favorites. They even learned a song for a special request. Annie has an amazing voice and Carmine has the more energy than someone half his age. The band is interactive with their audience and plays off the energy of the crowd. I would highly recommend them for your special event!!!

  • Carmine and his band are the best! He bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule, and played a wonderful mixture of oldies and contemporary tunes. Our party was at 5 and the band was at the venue early in the day setting up and getting ready. There is a wonderful camaraderie among the players, the horns are outstanding and the female singer was a delight. Book 'em!

  • Having a live band truly makes a difference and it was my wedding "must-have"! The Carmine Terracciano Band is THE BEST around and worth every penny. All of the guests loved the band and could not stop praising the musicians and female singer. Carmine is great to work with and does all of the announcements like a champ! They played an hour of cocktail music while the wedding party was taking pictures (think Frank Sinatra, Etta James), did the exact songs we picked out for the traditional dances, and kept the dance floor packed all night!! I highly recommend the Carmine Terracciano band for anyone's wedding or special event!

  • I can't say enough about how amazing The Carmine Terracciano Band is! They played our wedding and helped make it absolutely perfect! Not only are they an amazing band with the perfect mix of instruments and vocals but Carmine was also great to work with leading up to our big day! He had great suggestions on details to add to our dances and also learned a few songs for us so we could make the evening extra special! I would highly recommend this band to anyone and will absolutely look to use them again!

  • The Carmine Band was perhaps the best part of our reception! The dance floor was packed from start to finish and they played a great mix of genres that had multiple generations partying together (even my Wife's 92-year-old Grandmother!). They have a feel for the crowd and know what to play in the right moment to keep the party going. Very talented crew with a really full sound (loved the horns), we had so much fun and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering having a band play their reception.

  • Carmine went over what specific music we wanted. They provided cocktail hour background music and when dinner was done, they got the dance floor hoppin'. Carmine really listened when I told him we didn't want to be "stranded" during our first dance. He had our guests surround us for the first bit, and then invited all of them to join us partway through the dance. It was perfect!! I guess the best compliment came from my 31 year old daughter. She wished we had hired a DJ until she heard the band. She couldn't stop raving about how the singer made her voice sound "just like the original artist." I give the Carmine Band my highest praise. Just so you know, I am a professional musician myself. This band rocked!!

  • This is a band with wonderful, positive camaraderie among the players with stand out vocals and a fun party energy. It is clear that the musicians are skilled at playing events and really know what they are doing. By my age I have gone to plenty of events, I always joke that by the end of a wedding, people are tired and sometimes tipsy after a day filled with love and family at which point they will say almost anything. How many people have you heard yelling out how their wedding band was THE BEST??? I write this, not as a bride, but as a wedding guest. I have been to two events with the Carmine Band as entertainment and can tell you objectively that they are talented, fun, energetic, happy and bring all of that to the stage with them. The dance floor was filled all night and the best part was that they were able to get all ages up to the dance floor. How beautiful is it when all family members feel included in the celebration?? They are REALLY good at what they do, hire them!

    Thank you so much for your review. I'm lucky to work a great group of musicians who love to please our audiences!

  • One word says it all. ENERGY! The Carmine Band brings it! We hired the Carmine Band to provide music for our wedding reception, and the experience was unforgettable. Even before the festivities, The Carmine Band made it a priority to meet with us to discuss our needs, and made the whole planning process a breeze! They were receptive to our ideas, and offered suggestions that would make the big day the best it could possibly be for everyone. On the day of the wedding, the band arrived on time, and setup quickly and efficiently. The introductions were smooth, and the dinner music provided a relaxing atmosphere. The Carmine Band even went above and beyond in learning songs that we specifically requested for the traditional dances, which added a memorable touch to the reception. As the evening went on, the band played an excellent mix of modern and classic songs; intertwining upbeat dance music, and songs that we know and love to slow dance to! The dance floor was packed from start to fin... Read more
