  • I wish I could have more than just one wedding (with the same person though lol) so I could work with Christina again and again! That 's how much I LOVE working with her! Her voice and performance is just pure magic! Working with Christina is one of the best decisions I've made for my wedding. She is so professional, organized, patient, responsive, thoughtful, warm... She is just AMAZING! She walked me through the process and helped me figure out what kind of music I like (I was absolutely clueless to begin with). And at the wedding she picked EVERY song right! I can't remember how many times I heard my guests tell me "the band is really great". I want to thank Christina and her band a thousand times for making my night incredible! I will recommend them to anyone in a heart beat!

    T! My feelings are completely mutual. :) I absolutely *loved* working with you to plan out the music for your day. You had me laughing all along and made the process so fun for me. You were a stunning bride and one of my favorite moments was getting to watch you and Jake dance swing to open the dance floor, while we played Olly Murs. Then getting to dance with you myself later in the evening. Everything about your day was exquisite and yes, it would be wonderful to get to do it over and over again! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and for sharing about your experience. We all loved celebrating with you! Cheers to you and Jake, and your many years of happiness ahead! XoX!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Christina and her band. Before the wedding itself, she did an amazing job helping us organize what music we wanted for the ceremony, cocktail hour and of course the reception. She was extremely organized during this process and she made this aspect of our wedding easy to plan and stress free. Christina and her band exceeded any expectations I had for the reception. Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but the energy herself and the band brought that night was electric. We had people on the dance floor from the time they started playing until the very last song. They truly brought an element to our wedding that I'll never forget and always be grateful for. One of the highlights on our wedding night was a member of her band that played the fiddle. He absolutely killed it and was amazing to watch. If you're looking for a wedding band that will bring a great energy to your wedding and is easy to work with, I recommend Christina with the... Read more

  • The Bands was exceptional and made our 5th Wedding Anniversary party a huge success. Christina and her band members fit right in with our party and got us all dancing and singing along. I give them a 10+ and thank them for making our party one of a kind. Joanie Hollowell - Ann Arbor, MI

    Thank you so much Joanie! Celebrating with you was one of the highlights of my fall season this year! You and John are so gracious and your people were an absolute blast to dance, sing and laugh with! You made everything easy and it was a flawless party. I will never forget my first experience with vintage micro cars, and being the "main event" at a circus. ;) I hope we get to do it again some time! Hugs!

  • Christina and her band were ABSOLUTELY incredible. We were married almost 2 years ago, and people are still asking about our wedding band! Christina was such a sweet angel to work with, and she made the planning process a breeze. Not to mention, her high energy and amazing vocals kept our guests on the dance floor the entire night. My husband, a professional musician, was blown away by the instrumentalists and vocalists. Wish we could do it all over again so we could hire Christina and her band! Highly, highly recommend. -Katie and Michael G.

    Oh geez, thanks Katie!!! There was *so* much I loved about being part of your wedding festivities, though one thing that stands out in my mind is you getting on the mic and singing with us! What a special moment! Your kind words mean so much to me and the fellas and I are so grateful we got to help you celebrate your big day with Michael! We had a blast dancing with you all night long! Thank you!

  • Christina and her band were absolutely amazing! Christina was so great to work with leading up to our big day - making sure she knew what we liked, didn’t like, and any special requests we had. She was so organized, which helped me so much because I knew that I didn’t have to worry about the music! On our wedding day, she brought so much energy and pure joy into her work, it made our night so special! The dance floor was packed the entire evening and that’s because she played such great music that kept everyone engaged and wanting to keep the night going. We truly didn’t want it to end! I loved working with Christina and her band and would do it all over again if I could!! Thank you!!

    I'm smiling wider than I can articulate. :) Chelsea, your and Sri's wedding will go down in my books as a wishful standard for-ev-er. Your family was an absolute dream to team up with and seeing how beautifully the American and Indian cultures, along with your individual family traditions, were infused in every part of the day was breathtaking. The joy on all your faces as we celebrated and danced is one of my favorite memories from your wedding. I'm *so* grateful you chose my band for your big day and thank you from the bottom of my heart! I wish you and Sri a lifetime of happiness and love! XoX

  • The Christina Kateri Band far exceeded every expectation! Christina was patient, flexible, and creative as we planned our wedding. She knew exactly how to create an atmosphere of excitement and entertainment among a diverse crowd of guests, and played music that that appealed to every generation. The energy and enthusiasm in the room was contagious - all of the guests were dancing the night away! Without question we would (and have!) recommended CKB to friends and family hosting an event. I look forward to the next time we can see Christina and the Band perform!

  • I'm a wedding planner from Toronto and we were planning a fabulous Michigan wedding from out of country last summer. Live music throughout the day was a huge priority for our clients. The moment I spoke with Christina for the first time I knew she was exactly who we were looking for. Professional, warm, friendly, accommodating, and helpful at every turn. She was thorough throughout all of the planning stages which was such a stress saver for everyone involved. On the actual wedding day Christina and her team followed through and exceeded our expectations. Both musically and logistically. We hope we can get back to Michigan for another event with her soon! We can't thank you enough for everything! Fabulous doesn't even begin to describe our experience!

    Melissa! I can't express enough what a dream it was to work with you and Morgan. :) I loved getting to know you better and join forces to help make A + J's wedding day unforgettable. I wish I could partner with Lustre Events on all of the events my band plays, and I truly hope the opportunity presents itself again! Until then, happy planning and thank you!

  • The Christina Kateri Band provided such incredible vocals and music at our wedding and we cannot even begin to express how thankful we are! Christina went above and beyond for us in so many ways. She was not only an incredible performer and planner, but such a source of comfort to us during our most stressful moments! THANK YOU for providing such amazing music! I received so many compliments on both the ceremony and reception music. Friends and family both agreed that the music was one of the most memorable parts of the wedding. Ive already recommended her to several of my friends who are planning weddings!

    Thank you Lanie! What an incredible day it was! Thank you for having my band and letting us help you celebrate; it was such a joy to be able to participate in this milestone of yours. I know there are amazing things in store for you both, as you continue your life together. I wish you a long life filled with happiness and love!

  • Christina and her band absolutely made our wedding. Christina was incredibly kind, considerate, and easy to work with. She made the process of organizing music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing easy and enjoyable. Her band brought energy and fun and made the evening a truly unique, memorable, and special one for all there (especially us!). We can't thank Christina and her band enough, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for live music at a wedding or any other event.

    Wow, thank you Ian! The fellas and I absolutely loved providing your music, and having you join us on drums, too! ;) It's couples like you and Katie, and your amazing family and friends, that make what we do worthwhile. THANK YOU for choosing us and letting us contribute to your big day! I wish you the absolute best!

  • The Christina Kateri band will have your party or wedding hopping! Not a single person was sitting during my sisters wedding. Everyone was up having the best time and could not believe how incredible the musicians were. Also very professional from beginning to end. Christina will take care of every detail and make sure the music for your event is exactly what you want. Cannot recommend this band highly enough!

    Mary! How kind of you to share your experience! It was your sister's wedding that prompted me to pick up the ukulele and learn to play (for her first dance), and I haven't put it down since...I will *never* forget that or the wonderful time we had celebrating with you at the church and reception. THANK YOU!!!

  • Christina sang during our wedding ceremony in August 2014. As we knew she would be, she was amazing. Working together on the song we wanted and planning for the ceremony was smooth and painless, which is very important when planning a wedding. When our wedding day arrived, she was on-time, prepared, and sounded beautiful. We didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to working with Christina, and we would highly recommend the Christina Kateri Band when looking for live performers for your wedding day!

    Eeek, so many fun memories we have! It was such an honor to sing at your wedding and I can't wait to party with you at this special birthday celebration! I'm so excited you're having my band there to entertain (and be entertained with your crazy awesome family and friends) and continue with the good times. :) I'm smiling just thinking about it! You are a gem, thank you! XoX!
