  • As the night ended the crowd chanted "ONE MORE SONG ONE MORE SONG" and I could have sworn I was at a concert and not my own wedding. My dad says he hasn't had that much fun since he was in his 20s! To put it mildly, Amaretto was so so much fun!! They were a joy to work with but nothing could have prepared me for the amount of fun we had with them during the party. My only regret is that the night wasn't longer! They are so incredibly talented and I wish I could have another party just to hire them again! Everyone danced all night long and is still raving about them. I highly recommend Amaretto - especially if you invite me to your wedding so I can dance to them again!!

  • Amaretto came highly recommended but they were even better than I expected. Their music was a good mix of golden oldies and current songs but everything was danceable. Our guests were on the floor dancing from the moment they started to play until we had to be pushed out of the venue because it was closing. The band was sensitive to our requests and managed to satisfy all the generations attending. The highest compliment I can give them is that guests who attended from all over the country and several foreign countries are still talking about how great they were even though the wedding was two months ago!

  • Our harpist was great! She was on time, professional, talented and willing to work with us. Our DJ was fun, full of personality and a great voice for introducing the wedding party.

  • Amaretto was professional, easy to work with, and did everything we asked. They were on-time, friendly, and did everything they could to make our wedding fun, enjoyable, and easy on us. Class act and top-notch service. In addition, they sounded great. The dance floor was full for 3 straight hours. Would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting a great, fun band at a reasonable rate for any type of event. We received a ton of compliments on how great they sounded.

  • Wow!!!! This band made our wedding! They were phenomenal and our guests could not stop talking about how great the music was. We could not have asked for more and would so highly recommend them. They made our wedding completely unforgettable and had all of our guests on the dance floor from the very beginning of our reception until the very end. Absolutely fantastic! We plan on recommending them to all of our friends and family not yet married in the DC area. We are so pleased with our decision to go with Amaretto.

  • We used Washington's Best for our videographer. We wanted our day to be captured on film but couldn't afford to pay the high price tags that most other companies wanted. Rick was our videographer and was great! He was friendly, professional, and got some great footage. We couldn't be happier!

  • I hired Washington's Best as our videographer for our wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens on 4/13/13. I wasn't sure that I wanted a videographer but a few weeks before the wedding I decided to go ahead and contract someone and I'm so glad I did!! David Fletcher of Washington's Best was great, he hooked us up with an amazing videographer, made the contract process super easy and got us our videos as soon as we returned from our honeymoon! We loved watching our wedding day on video and can't believe how much of it was a blur to us because of nerves, being busy with family, etc. I highly recommend using Washington's Best, you won't be disappointed!

  • THE ACOUSTICATS played our reception and if we ever have another occasion for dinner and dancing, we're calling Rich and the Acousticats!! They were so good that our guests couldn't help dancing as soon as they heard them play (which we loved by the way)! We were looking for a band that could play 50s and 60s music that everyone could dance to and the list of songs Rich provided already had many of the songs we love so that made choosing songs so much easier. Our guests RAVED about the Acousticats. Everyone was asking where we found the band! Rich was so willing to work with us to make sure he knew what we wanted and he's so down to earth and easy to work with. Our friends and family love to dance, and we were so excited that Rich and the Acousticats brought everyone out to have a good time. Thank you Rich and the Acousticats!

  • Washington’s Best did a great job for our wedding. While it may be a little out of vogue, my wife and I wanted to have a video of the entire ceremony and the important events from the reception with only minimal editing. Washington’s Best did exactly what we requested. The videographer was unobtrusive and helpful. He even stayed out for us in 15 degree weather to get a few nice clips of us posing for our wedding shots! In short, Washington’s Best provided exactly what we were looking for with great service at a reasonable price.

  • After extensively researching dozens of wedding bands in Washington, New York and throughout the region – including online reviews of comments/videos/audio files, sending friends to watch bands in-person (we recent re-located abroad) and phone interviews – we chose Amaretto. Our expectations were high - as the band leader noted that they had 13 music degrees among the 9 members - but their performance at our wedding reception FAR exceeded anything we could have imagined (they performed a quartet for our cocktail hour and full nine-piece band for the reception). In the set-up, the band leader (David) was incredibly responsive to email or phone inquiries and even set-up an in-person meeting during our brief visit to Washington. He gladly accepted a number of our special requests (songs, activities during ceremony, etc) and also offered a number of unique ideas that he'd seen work at previous wedding receptions. Most importantly, the band's performance was absolutely outstan... Read more

  • Washington's Best was perfect! Our photographer Nenad was a delight and very professional. He arrived early, was kind enough to call so I wouldn't worry and came with a printed list of the photos we requested ensuring multiple times we had all the shots we wanted. He took numerous photos throughout the event easily blending in to get the best shots without ever bring too obvious. The high quality equipment produced portrait like photos. Our musicians were perfect. We received compliments throughout the wedding. My mother thought they were playing to her and loved the music (note she normally complains about everything.) Our only direction to them was in regards to ceremony and first dance songs, all the rest were the musician's choices which were absolutely perfect! When researching photographers and entertainment Washington's Best by far was THE BEST deal. We search throughout the region and could not find anything close. I was hesitant to book because the price seemed too good to ... Read more

  • We used Washington's Best for our band booking, and recieved a videographer free of charge because of the package we booked with the band. Dave, our contact, was great. He was very knowledgeable, and gave us great advice. He was very easy to work with and incredibly responsive. The band, DC Fusion, was amazing. Best wedding band ever, hands down. Many of our guests said they were recommending them to their newly engaged friends because they had so much fun at our wedding. The videographer was ok. He wasn't very stealth, and he showed up in a lot of our photos. We received unedited footage, and it was decent. We'll probably have it cut professionally and turned into a real video.

  • We love Amaretto!! This band was used back in 2006 at my sister's wedding so it was only natural we re-enlist them for my own big day given how incredibly talented they are. We always loved the female lead singer, but the band had a new male lead - Brandon - whose voice and emcee spirit were wonderful. All our guests were singing the band praises all night. They hyped up the energy ensuring everyone was on the dance floor - even folks who you'd typically not find out there. People were so into the music, they were requesting songs left and right (though the band couldn't necessarily play them - but just goes to show how much people were enjoying themselves). The band also learned the song for our father/daughter dance and performed it flawlessly. David Fletcher, the band's manager, was responsive and flexible throughout the planning process. You are in good hands with David and the Amaretto gang. Would highly recommend.

  • Amaretto is absolutely amazing! Such a great wedding band! We had them for my sister's wedding, and when my turn came around I definitely wanted to have them. They're extremely talented and fun. Great times and tunes. Nothing cheesy!

  • We worked with the owner David to set up videography services for our wedding and we were very happy with the results. We knew we weren't going to be able to afford the bells and whistles videography services that many people go with that have multiple cameras and lots of lighting and sound equipment, so having this option which is just a videographer and camera was perfect for us. The package includes 3 hours and you get 3 dvds afterwards. Our videographer John was great and very accommodating when we needed him to stay an extra hour in order to get all of our speeches filmed.
