Shimmer band was amazing - they kept the dance floor full the entire night, were so easy to work with and so accommodating. Nicki and I both said we need to remember to refer them more often, it had been a few years since we had worked with them!

The band was absolutely amazing- they could not have been better or easier to work with. When I have told friends that I spoke to Jay so many times prior to the event and that he asked so many questions to make sure everything was perfect they have been shocked at how hands on they were. The whole flow of their sets was perfect- everyone was dancing the whole time and I would recommend them to anyone!!


May 01, 2021

I don’t even know where to begin. Shimmer was amazing on Saturday!!!! I honestly lost count of how many people asked me, “where did you find this band!?!” I gave very minimal direction on the setlist and they killed it. They read the room and knew exactly what to play. I couldn’t leave the dance floor! We had the most amazing time! Thank you for everything!


Mar 20, 2021

Thanks for following up....Shimmer was EXCELLENT and far exceeded our expectations!...our guests had a great time and we have received many compliments It was an unforgettable evening.


Dec 12, 2020

The band was GREAT! All of my guests commented on the quality and variety of music played at my daughter's wedding. My wife and I heard the band at a wedding four years ago and said then that they were the band for our daughter when she got married. You guys did a fantastic job and, if the need arises, we will use the Shimmer band again. Thank you very much for making the wedding reception special.

Amazing evening with the Shimmer band! From beginning to end we had a great time. Their sound was great and they made the effort to engage with the crowd. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

A heartfelt thanks to Shimmer Band. You made the wedding night this past Saturday absolutely PERFECT! Every song was amazing. Each band member had such great talent and energy. Our Daughter, Katie, has loved working with you and said that you have been so accommodating and understood everything she wanted. Also, Conly at The Farm raved about how nice it was to work with you. We had so many people calling and texting to inquire about you and tell us how much they enjoyed dancing all night- many of us older one’s couldn’t get out of bed the next day because our feet and backs hurt so much🤣. If our family has any more events, Shimmer Band is who we will use! Have a great week and thanks again.

Absolutely fantastic! Shimmer Band was truly wonderful and was a key part in making our wedding the best ever! From their assistance in customizing our first dance, timeline of the reception, coordinating a dance with the bridesmaids, interaction with the crowd, and just keeping the party going the entire time, they were wonderful! Everyone had a blast and even the non-dancers in the group were out on the dance floor! If you are lucky enough to have Shimmer Band play your reception, you won't be disappointed! We want to go back and do it all over again without changing a thing!

September 1st has come yet not gone …. We celebrated the exquisite love of Jaime & David. There are no words to express the immense joy that we experienced throughout our planning & vision journey which resulted in the most magnificent, delicious & memorable celebration of love. We know our family & dear friends whole heartedly agree. Jaime & David's wedding“happened perfectly” in part because of your thoughtful & creative energy. Shimmer was amazing, and created the most festive & fun atmosphere. Everyone !!! was on the dancefloor. Thanks so much for your guidance throughout the planning process. You made it so easy to plan for a night to remember. What I know for sure, as well ~ is that Jaime & David had so much fun with you, as well. as Gene did. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall. You will always have a special place with us, as we re-live and cherish Jaime & David’s perfect evening. Much appreciation for being part of our "9119" planning.

Choosing a band was one of the most important decisions we made for our wedding day and we could not have been happier that we chose Shimmer! Seriously, I spent 4 hours watching youtube videos of band demos and made excel comparison files of song lists. Trust me when I say you will not regret hiring Shimmer! Jay was great to work with leading up to the wedding and Shimmer knocked it out of the park at our reception!!! 10 out of 10 times if we had to make the decision over again, we would go with Shimmer! Our family and friends are still talking about how much FUN our wedding was. The entire night the dance floor was FULL! They were great about interacting with the crowd and kept the energy up all evening. Also, Shimmer is very talented vocally and the range of music they were able to play was fantastic. We wish we could be guests at their next wedding because they are just that good!

We thoroughly enjoyed Shimmer band! They were so energetic and had us all on the dance floor all night long!!! So many of the guests have told me it was the best band they have heard and wanted their contact information. I highly recommend Shimmer and will most definitely hire them again!

We LOVED the Shimmer band. First, they played great dinner tunes, and then they got our guests up dancing, and they never sat down again! It was perfect! Our favorite part was when they got the young girls up on stage to sing and dance during a Taylor Swift song - adorable! Every one of our guests raved about the band.

We were very pleased with the Shimmer Band’s performance. They were incredible. They kept the attendees dancing. I would highly recommend them to my friends. We also got a lot of good feedback from people that attended and everyone loved them. They were also very responsive and if we had any questions they gave us immediate feedback.

I cannot express how wonderful Shimmer was at our wedding reception! Everyone danced the night away and only had compliments about the band.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about how incredible Shimmer was at our reception. We heard from many of our guests that Shimmer was the best band they'd ever heard at a wedding. They were easy to work with, and Jay made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be for our event. They involved the crowd the entire night which I know our guests loved, and thought it was really fun how they invited the bridal party up on stage for one of the songs. The dance floor was packed the entire night. They helped make our reception everything we could've hoped for and more for our special day. I will certainly recommend you to any friends I hear of looking for entertainment for an event.

Wow!!!! It was an extreme pleasure to work with you and Shimmer Band a couple Saturdays ago at Lowndes Grove Plantation. You all are incredible musicians!!! I have worked with a lot of individual musicians and bands, and I must admit that working with you was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a group of musicians. Not only are you all some of the best in the business, but your responsiveness, thoroughness, and willingness to speak with me made my experience that much better. I cannot thank you enough! Please extend my gratitude to the rest of the members, and know that Kelly and David had the time of their lives. Here's to an exceptional Spring, and kudos to you all for being a bad-ass group of musicians. Y'all rock! Many thanks again for all that you do, and I hope to work together again in the future!

Honestly, choosing Shimmer for our band was one of the best if not the best vendor-related decisions we made. We truly LOVED them - from how they MC'd the night, to their crazy good talent, to putting up with all of our special requests, they truly made the reception so special. I was dead set to have a live band, and couldn't have made a better choice. We've received so many compliments from our guests about how much they dug the band too, and how much fun they had dancing the night away. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wanting live music for any event!


Oct 21, 2017

The band was incredible as expected as we have seen in the past!! They are so great to get everyone up on the dance floor and feel the vibe of the crowd. Music sounded amazing and we had so many guests come and ask what band it was because they were such great performers! Even off the stage the musicians were awesome to interact with. Timely, personable and super talented. We couldn't have asked for anything more, they killed it!! Thanks so much!

-Kristen R.-

Oct 14, 2017

AMAZING!!!! Shimmer band made our wedding reception one for the books! Our family and friends had a blast and that is an understatement. Our guests could not wait to get on the dance floor. Shimmer Band is the best band I have ever seen in action. On top of the amazing show they put on, Jay answered my emails back within minutes. I really can't say enough nice things. CAN WE DO THE NIGHT OVER AGAIN??


Sep 23, 2017

Shimmer was AMAZING!!!!!! Throughout our booking and music selection process, Jay Hardie was so easy to work with and super flexible with meeting the noise ordinances of our venue. Shimmer is everything we hoped they would be and then some. They are crazy talented musicians and singers, they are engaging and interactive, and we are STILL getting compliments on the group. My husband and I highly recommend Shimmer - they made our wedding reception so fun and memorable!


Sep 09, 2017

The band Shimmer was phenomenal, the sample track on them does not do them justice. They were professional, the sound was top quality, friendly, fun and the music was exactly what we asked for. My only complaint is that I danced so much I forgot to take selfies! Memorable is an understatement. I will be recommending them to anyone throwing an event/party. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY! We will be using them again for our anniversary party soon!

Shimmer totally made our reception! We can’t say enough about how awesome this band is and how easy and professional they were to work with. They played through dinner and then got the party started. Everyone (even the “non-dancers”) was up and on the dance floor! Even though it was really hot at our reception, they played it cool and kept everyone in a great mood. They emcee’d wonderfully and totally read the crowd at every single turn. Shimmer is top-of-the-line – the talent going on here is unreal! My husband is a musician and he and his musician friends were in absolute awe. We have gotten so many compliments on them…and more than one request for Shimmer in Concert!


Jul 21, 2017

EVERYTHING Saturday night was PERFECT from the band!!! We can't thank you enough. So so so many people said "That's be best band we've ever heard at any function"! You really read our crowd and pleased ALL! Our 5 year old granddaughter Maley wants to join! Again, thank you and please pass these thanks on to the others.

Jun 10, 2017

Both Shimmer and East Coast Entertainment were phenomenal! My husband is a musician and one of our guests asked the band if they'd let him play a couple of tunes, they were so accommodating and gracious to allow him to use their equipment and interrupt their set so he could get up and have some fun. Their lead singer even took a photo and found a way to send it to us! They really went above and beyond to make our day special. Every single member of the band was professional and kind. They brought so much energy and fun to our wedding and I couldn't say enough about how much better they made our day. Thanks Shimmer!


Feb 25, 2017

My advice is that this band is worth every penny! They were amazing in every way; from contacting us to showing up on time, to being a truly great band. The lead singers were excellent, the guests danced all night and the band was so engaging! I cannot give this band a high enough rating. Words cannot describe how much fun we had at our reception and the band was a huge part of this.


Feb 04, 2017

The Shimmer Band was fantastic! We received compliments all night regarding how great the band was! Jay was a fantastic communicator and even created a mix of our favorite dance songs to play during the intermission. Per my request, Shimmer cranked the volume of the dance mix up so it really was a continual dance party all night long, even during the breaks. The band was very entertaining and involved the crowd a lot, which we loved! Show stopping performances included 'Rollin on a River' and 'Shout.' Beyoncé's 'Crazy Right Now' was fantastic as well and probably my favorite! We added the two extra horns which were well worth it! Jay also provided uplighting for the stage area and lighting around the stage. It was just an overall awesome night! 


Sep 24, 2016

Shimmer Band was the absolute best decision we made about our wedding! They played music that got people of all ages on the dance floor, and everyone raved about their talent and energy that they added to our event. Would recommend without hesitation and encourage you to book them! 


Aug 27, 2016

I had the pleasure of attending a wedding where Shimmer Band was the entertainment in Nashville, TN and fell in love! Once I began wedding band shopping, Shimmer was my first choice and I couldn't have been happier with my experience! Jay, band manager, is professional, prompt in response, flexible and eager to please his bride and groom. Shimmer came to party and I received many compliments from my guests on their music. They listened to the musical interests of my husband and I and created a performance that made it hard to leave the dance floor. Highly recommend! 


Jun 11, 2016

The band  (Shimmer) Ellie recommended to my son for his wedding at Deerpark (April 3oth) was fantastic!! I knew she wouldn't steer me wrong, but bands always make me a bit nervous.  Anyway, everyone was super impressed with them, including Biltmore staff. 

 I danced my a** off!!!!


Apr 30, 2016

Absolutely loved the band.... How can they get better than this???? What can I say????

No one wanted to leave the dance floor, including me.....ONLY complaint is we needed a larger dance floor....I wish you could see photos.....we had a stage and dance floor built to accommodate the band.( dance floor was 576' and we could have lengthened it by at least half).

Over 600 people and the majority stayed close to dance floor.

We would highly recommend "Shimmer" to anyone... Clean music, Christians.... Love that part....and extremely talented.( a few of my high school friends are musicians and one is a former Band director and Symphony Band member).... Very impressed with music and musicians....

Great entertainers!!!!!

Need I say more???

I wish I was planning another event..... ( I need a month or two to recuperate) Thanks a million


Nov 14, 2015

Rick: they were awesome. I absolutely loved them and cannot count the number of people who came up to me just to compliment the band. Thank you for everything!


Nov 07, 2015

Hank, First off, thank you so much for bringing this amazing band to us! Our guests were complimenting them all night and the next day. We had so much fun. The entire dance floor was packed as soon as dinner was over. They sang a great variety of songs and a lot from the list we had requested. Neither Jay nor I have a single negative thing to say about them. My only regret is not having met them prior to the wedding so please tell them thank you from us. They may be hearing from some of our guests soon, as others in the area may directly request shimmer band as well for some of their events. Best band ever, and amazing dancing and partying because of them! Thank you again for everything!

We just absolutely LOVED Shimmer!

From the second that we walked into the reception Shimmer was setting the mood for the evening. They professionally knew what lower key songs to play while guests were arriving and eating. During that set, they kept the music and ambiance upbeat while at the same time stayed in the background.

Every song they played was amazing! The band kept picking it up a notch as the evening progressed. The first song of the 3rd set, we had requested Sweet Caroline for the bride whose name is Caroline. The band blew it out! It was a highlight of the entire wedding weekend. From that point on, I don't think anyone left the dance floor. When they played Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars, everyone thought it was Bruno on the stage! All of our friends are asking for Shimmer's information and if they travel to Houston, which is where we are from. 

We requested a song that was not on their song sheet for Caroline and Stephen's first dance - The Best of My Love by The Emotions. They learned the song and it was unbelievable!  I wish I could post a video of their first dance - they LOVED it!

I could go on and on. The lead singers and all the instrumentals were absolutely the best! This band could go on tour! Jay made the whole process so easy as far as picking the songs and assuring me that the evening would be flawless - and it was! When they ended with Shout, my only regret is that it was over.

I cannot thank Shimmer enough for making our daughter's wedding reception such a huge success! Band's can make or break a reception. Shimmer made our reception unforgettable!


Sep 12, 2015

Thank you so much! You guys were the absolute hit of the night! People have not stopped talking about how amazing the band was, that it was the best wedding band they'd seen, best wedding they'd been to, etc.

Everything was fantastic from our entrance to first dances, dinner music, toasts, the cake cutting and champagne toast, the epic hora, and all of the other fun party music throughout the night. It all went off without a hitch!

Music really makes the party and sets the tone for the night. Thank you for helping to make an already very special day that much better.

We loved having the opportunity to work with you and will definitely be singing your praises to all of our friends and family that are looking to book a band for events in the future.

I wanted to let you know that I think that Shimmer is an amazing and talented band. They were perfect for my daughter's wedding.  They are nice to work with, play great music, have great energy and were so nice to all of the guests.  They made everyone feel special and were so sweet to the bride and groom.  I really couldn't have asked for a more perfect band for the night.  Please use my review as a 100% endorsement.  If anyone needs to talk to someone who has worked with them I am happy to be on that list.

Just wanted you to know how pleased we were with the band Shimmer that played for our daughter’s wedding. We were a little concerned that we had not heard the band nor knew anyone that had used them in our area.

WOW! What a pleasant surprise. They had the crowd on the floor from start to finish with all the guest begging for more. I have had a dozen emails and text asking “Who was the band”. But the most important factor is that Mallory and John loved them and they helped make their night perfect. I would recommend Shimmer with the upmost confidence that they will make any event special and fun.

Thanks for all your help,

I can't thank you enough!!!! What a kind person you are to treat us to such a fantastic evening! "Music with Friends"was the perfect ending to a wonderful week in Charleston.  

We could not have picked a more perfect band for Katy's wedding! Thank you for suggesting Shimmer to us as one of the many great bands you represent. They did not disappoint.....WOW!!!

‘Shimmer’ was incredible and absolutely MADE the reception.  As I mentioned to Jay last week, we have received an abundance of compliments and comments from our friends and guests – “where did you find that band?!”  “They were phenomenal!”, etc.  I think the true test is that the dance floor was jam packed until the very last song.  I felt badly that, in the frenzy of the bridal couple departing, I didn’t get to express my personal appreciation to Jay and the band.  Everything was happening so quickly and then the evening was over.  I did reach out to him by email last week, but would be very grateful if you would convey that again.

My daughter’s friends are definitely in the “marriage zone”, so of course, we will recommend any and all to you.

I really have appreciated your help through this effort and am so glad that we were able to work with you and Jay.

Feb 07, 2015

I can't say thank you enough.  We have had so many compliments on so many aspects of the wedding - but over and over, everyone has said how GREAT the band was. I appreciate how helpful and professional you were throughout the entire process - even when we overloaded you with emails.  All of the music was perfect - from start to finish.  You were right - it was never too loud.  You really helped to set the pace for the entire evening.  Interacting with the bride and the other guests was just wonderful - I know that everyone had a great time out there dancing.  Thankfully, I was back up at the lodge when Ryan was being hurled through the air...a memory was made for many with Shout!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You let me know if you need a personal reference at any time and I am happy to provide it for you. I know a couple of my friends took your card  - I think you will have more bookings after your night at RT Lodge..

My only regret is that I did not get to hug your neck and say thank you in person.

I can’t take credit for booking Shimmer; my son made the arrangements. And I am so glad he did because I can’t imagine how anyone else could have been better.  

To begin with, his wedding was at our old country home.  We did everything we could to put lipstick on a pig and it showed, but the highlight of the evening was Shimmer.  When they arrived, they could not have been more professional or pleasant.  Everything about the set up was easy for us and then they were off to a little house on the property where the bride and bridesmaids were staying for a little quiet.

They began on a low key as they learned the crowd and what to play to keep the dance floor full.  That didn’t take long and the rest of the story is they were just fabulous.  They played long sets and took short breaks.  They raised the tempo as the night went on and finished on a peak.  What a band!

Since the wedding we have had conversations with many of our guests.  To a person, they have all praised Shimme...  They are the best!  Thanks for having them on your roster.  They create happiness.

Shimmer was everything I expected and more. They are true professionals and easily won the crowd over. Even today I am still receiving comments on how great the band was. My niece wanted to know if they could get Shimmer for her wedding in San Antonio Texas!!! I said "don't know but I can give you their number!!" What a super band with super musicians and top shelf singers. Words fall short.

Jul 12, 2014

I just want to let you know that Shimmer Band was absolutely fantastic on our wedding night. In fact, they were far better than even we expected and perhaps the best band I've ever seen in a party-type atmosphere. They did a fantastic job of mixing up hits from yesterday and today, the band itself and the additional horns sounded great, and the vocals were spot on all night. Our guests danced from start to finish and numerous commented on the band's overall quality. They absolutely played a major role in making Sara and I's wedding the best night of our lives, so thank you again.


Jul 05, 2014

We just arrived in Italy for our honeymoon. It was an amazing time I had multiple compliments on Shimmer. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that asked! Made the night perfect. I will be sure and email Jay our sentiments. Thanks for all your help in making our night special.

WOW!!!! what a great band. Both my husband and new son-in-law want to write reviews on the band, so I will let those two do the honor. I will say, I have never had so much fun!

Being new at having a wedding reception, I was so fearful of how things were going to turn out. Shimmer was so much fun, they were so easy to work with,and we had so many compliments on the band. That is just a short review to let you know about band. I love the band! I wish I had something else coming up again soon, so I could have them play again.

Thank your for your help.

Debbie gave me your email address. I am the Father of the Bride. I am so thankful to you and the band. They were spectacular. The variety of music and the quality of the product were unbelievable. They were incredibly tight and the sound was great. Even more, they were so courteous to all. As the night progressed, they got better and better. They did not mail it in. They seem to feed off the crowd and the total effect was awesome. I have been to so many events where music and dancing were a cursory thing. Maybe the relative younger age of the crowd helped. But I think it was the band. "If you don't love this, you must be dead" is a comment I heard. They played their ass off and for one really appreciated the smiles and enthusiasm they displayed.

If there is anything I can do to promote these guys let me know. You are welcome to use us as a reference any time. Thank you and thank you again.

! wanted to take a minute to write and tell you how much we enjoyed having Shimmer perform at our wedding on September 21, 2013. Everything went wonderfully. The band members were so nice and accommodating. Jay was such a pleasure to work with throughout the whole planning process for the big event. He always responded in a timely manner and was very insightful & helpful. All of our guest are still talking about how amazing our band was. We danced all night and had a blast! I will certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band for an event. I would like to plan another event just so I can have them perform again! Please extend my gratitude to the band. We are so grateful to them.

We were so happy with Shimmer's performance and they were by far my favorite part of the reception. I don't think there was a single person who wasn't dancing, and their music was so upbeat and definitely kept the crowd going. Also, it was such a pleasure to work with Jay and he did an amazing job at getting back to me promptly whenever I had a question or concern. We got many, many compliments and I'm sure when my friends get married I'll be asked who the amazing band was that played at my wedding!

Thanks again for everything. You guys are great!


Jun 22, 2013

Just wanted to follow up on my previous note now that I have had time back from my honeymoon. Shimmer was unbelievable. They had great showmanship which is imperative to a successful reception but on top of that they're sound was unreal. I have received many compliments from friends and family and will be sending all friends who come to me your way with Shimmer recommended.

On top of their performance, Jay was so great to work with. He made me look like I actually knew what I was doing in planning a wedding with my wife and in-laws.

Thanks for all your help, and many thanks to Jay and Shimmer as well for making our reception the best night of our lives.

They were absolutely wonderful. The night was a huge success and I don't think there was literally more than 1 minute that there was not someone on the dance floor. They were so accommodating and flexible - everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had been to and the best bands they had heard - so we were thrilled!

Is there a way to put in a review/rate them? would definitely love to do that too!

Thanks so much!


Oct 20, 2012

This past Saturday the SHIMMER BAND performed at the wedding reception of our son and his new bride! We can't stop talking about it!

The band made for the most fun evening we've experienced at a function. The quest were out of their seats and on the dance floor. Even the pastor and his wife were dancing! We have attended many wedding receptions, but have never seen so many people having such a great time at one event! We didn't want the evening to end.

Now we have to find another event in which we can call on the SHIMMER BAND to make our evening a success. They're music, style and and performance was fabulous! We highly recommend this band and promise you will love it!

We loved Shimmer! They were on time, professional, and had a very wide range of music and really had fun with the crowd! I'm highly considering them for next year; Jay was great to work with! I'll hopefully get back to you tomorrow with a date and a budget.

They did a great job. Jay was so easy to work with. This was my 19th gala and I think they were undoubtedly one of the best bands we have had.


Oct 08, 2011

They were great! Everyone loved them and had a great time! They got out in the crowd and really got them going! I did not want anyone "staying seated at their table" for the whole night which is why I really wanted a band, and they accomplished my goal for sure! Everyone danced the night away and I thoroughly enjoyed them as I think everyone did! They played a well rounded bit of music (something for everyone) and accomodated my request of Brown Eyed Girl when I asked for it so they get an A+ from me!!! I will def. recommend them to others as well as your services.

Thanks again for everything!

I am thrilled to tell you about them! WE COULD NOT HAVE HOPED FOR A BETTER CELEBRATION LEAD BY SHIMMER MUSIC!! They were all professional and personable. Jay went out of his way to craft the playlist exactly to suit our ideas. There were musically superb, brought incredible energy to the dance floor, and interacted with everyone in a way that was engaging but not over the top. They absolutely met all of our expectations and actually far exceeded them. We got numerous enthusiastic comments about how great they were from all ages present. I also want you to know that Jay brought extra PA equipment and the group spent a little extra time helping provide sound support for the area where the ceremony was held. While he and I had talked about this in advance, he was cheerful and willing and this was outside of the requirements of the contract. I would give them the highest possible recommendation and would be happy to provide any more testimonials you might need. Lauren and Denton are on their honeymoon but I know everything I have said speaks for them too. Thanks for checking in. I only hope I have a chance to hire them again sometime.

I wanted to write you back and tell you how much fun we had with Shimmer at the Vandever wedding on June 25, 2011. The band was everything we could have asked for. They were true professionals. The evening flowed as well as it could have. They did a good job of letting the party come to them as the night progressed, then once everyone was ready, the band totally won the crowd over. We are very happy with our decision to use Shimmer and would recommend them to anyone thinking of using a band for their reception. Our crowd was about 50/50 young to old, but from the looks of the dance floor, everyone was having a blast. They played a wide range of music like we requested so there was something for everyone. We were impressed with their musical talent as well as their ability to interact with the crowd. The musicians were very talented and the singers were very versatile. All band members were very friendly. We have been told my numerous guests how amazing the band was and that we had the most fun wedding they had ever been to. Thanks for referring them to us. We are very happy with the outcome. Feel free to reply to me or Maggie.

David, Emily, and our Families and Guests wanted to thank you so much for being a part of executing our perfect wedding. We were just thrilled with your energy, style and performance. You played all of the crazy songs that we requested and that we love to hear, and it made our wedding perfectly tailored to us. I cannot believe that I sang three songs with the band, into a microphone at the wedding, I LOVED doing it, and I'm so glad that there is no wedding video to have recorded that performance!

My dad had the best time performing with the band and it truly made his night and wedding weeking. Thank you for practicing with him in advance. He has been talking about his performance with you every day since the wedding.
David also wanted to let you know " just how incredible and professional the band was, and how every person has commented on having the best time."

David and I look forward to using you at future events. You were such a pleasure to work with. All the best.

Thanks so much for recommending Shimmer for Cari's wedding. We have heard from so many of our guests that they were the best band that had ever heard at a wedding. The dance floor was packed with both the older crowd and the younger guests. We wanted fun - and Shimmer delivered. Thanks again for your help in making Cari's wedding day so very special and please pass on to the band that we could not have been more pleased.

I just wanted to write you to let you know how exceptional we thought Shimmer was at the retirement party on February 5, 2011. Since the party the guests have raved about how great you guys were and how great the music was that night. Your incredible energy from the moment we walked in, continued through the night without ever letting up! Everyone had a fantastic time and felt that you guys really made the event. One gentleman said that he had not danced this much in 20 years. I have never seen that many people dance at a company function especially a room full of construction folks.

The Band can really make or break a party and we were completely thrilled with everything you did to make ours a success. Please let everyone in the band know how much we enjoyed and appreciated your hard work. We will recommend you to everyone we know. Also, please feel free to have anyone contact us as a reference. We would look forward to speaking with any of your potential clients to let them know how outstanding you were.

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you personally for all of your hard work and performance during our 15th Annual Gala. The event was a great success, and we've received much positive feedback from the attendees. The music was perfect and the musicians were adored by our guests. They brought a fantastic amount of skill and energy to the performance and, as evidenced by our guests' requests for an encore, were entertaining well into the end of the evening. I have already been looking into 2011 dates and would like to know if you have Nov. 12, 2011 still available? I know this is early in the game but maybe you can put a lose hold on that date for us.
