  • We booked Amaretto for my daughter's wedding and they were fantastic! This was actually the second time we used them as we used them for an older daughter's wedding. David Fletcher responds quickly to emails and phone calls and they are great with special requests. We asked for a New Orleans's Second Line (a New Orleans's wedding tradition) and not only did they accommodate, they seemed to have a good time performing it. I highly recommend this band. The singers and musicians are super talented, friendly and will have your guests dancing all night long!!

  • Words cannot express how amazing the Amaretto band is. All I can say is BOOK THEM. You will not be disappointed!! Our guests were dancing all night. The band learned our first dance songs beautifully. Amaretto is the best wedding band I've ever experienced, and our night was an absolute dream come true. I only wish we could have danced longer! THANK YOU, David and team! We love you!

  • Amaretto made our wedding night. Not only are they very easy and professional to work with, they are fun, very personable, and truly want to make you and your guests have the best night ever. The dance floor was packed all night long! All of our guests, young, old, and in between, have been raving about how much fun the band was. Having Amaretto as our wedding band absolutely made our dreams come true. Thank you!!

  • Thank you for responding so quickly to our rush request. We would not have captured the beautiful church wedding of my daughter, if not of your professionalism. Your pricing is excellent and I just cannot say enough about the quality of work for the affordable price. Thank you very much!

  • Amaretto made the wedding the event we hoped it would be. They were responsive, professional, and were truly happy to be a part of our event. They provided the ceremony music, cocktail hour music, and of course the reception music. We couldn't have asked for more!

  • Simply put, we couldn't ask for anything more from a wedding band. We wanted to find a lively, complete motown band for our wedding, and the Amaretto band was it. We asked them to stick almost exclusively to that genre, but they played more modern music that was requested as well, and it was clear they would excel there too. Planning the day was easy, and they learned a few new songs for our dances. It was clear they enjoyed playing together, and they seemed to have a great time. That energy spilled out onto the dance floor, and everyone had a really great time throughout. We hired the Amaretto band for our wedding about six months in advance, which gave us the opportunity to see them in person a few times before they played live for us. They were as great when we saw them play a paid show as they were at our wedding. Top to bottom, great music and lively energy. I would recommend them to anyone without an ounce of hesitation.

  • Their name says it all..."Washington's Best". After reading other glowing reviews of Washington's Best and experiencing quick response to my online request for services, I decided to use them for my recent wedding and outdoor reception. Despite me being late for my wedding, photographer, Sassan was at the church early and began working his magic with the camera. Upon my late arrival to the church, Sassan immediately began photographing me and my bridesmaids and matron of honor. After the ceremony and upon arrival at the outdoor reception location, Sassan effortelessly took photos in the sweltering heat with a short break to eat and drink water. Despite my groom's challenging attitude caused by the heat, Sassan was able to direct my groom's attention to posing for memorable wedding photos and it shows in the photos. All 500+ photos within a span of 3 hours were nothing less than perfect! We are very pleased with the service and recommend David's Fletcher's Washington's Best to an... Read more

  • I could not have asked for a better overall experience from David and The Amaretto Band. I was impressed from the moment my husband and I first spoke with David to hearing the last song at our reception. The band absolutely made our reception. Our dance floor was packed from the second dinner was over until the lights came on at the end of the night. The band learned a song for my father daughter dance, and allowed my husband to sing an original song and played along with him! If you are the couple who loves to dance, have fun and get the party going this band is definitely for you.

    HI Kelly and Jason, Thank you for your kind words about the band. We had a blast at your Binghamton NY wedding. Just to clarify, Amaretto is a great DC based band, I founded it 25 years ago. The band that played for Kelly and Jason was the South of Houston band, my new NYC band. more info at www.southofhoustonband.com

  • The video was terrible. There was this awful digital zoom that makes everything look pixelated. If it was an HD camera when they put it on the DVD it ruined any quality it could have had. I am not impressed. I'm actually pretty sad about the whole video. There are multiple instances where the videographer was in the way, and it was obvious on the faces of the wedding party. And whatever light he used once it got darker was shone in the faces of my guests and was rather obnoxious. We ended up running a tad late and instead of offering to stay for an additional fee (Which we later learned was an option) he basically rushed us along and it feels like the video just ends. It's incredibly sad that I don't actually get to feel the magic of what was the most amazing and perfect day of my life while I watch this video. After reaching out to the company, we requested all additional footage from the night of our wedding. They said they had a huge data loss and no longer had the digital foota... Read more

  • Amaretto is an incredible band and I would have them at my wedding again, no question! They were responsive and once I told them what I was envisioning, I could easily let them run with it. You won't regret it!!

  • Amaretto was amazing! My guest raved about how great the band was and it really was the highlight of the wedding. Everyone was always dancing and the band did a really good job of incorporating music of all decades as well as keep everyone moving. They paced their songs well, they took appropriate breaks, and they played for a really long time. The dance floor was always packed. My only negative is that not all of our must play songs were played but that was okay because the music selection was superb. They were engaging and entertaining and I would hire them again in a heartbeat. They rocked!
