Amaretto Reviews

Band:  Amaretto–A
Fabulous.  We almost needed a bigger room for dancing!  Our room was bursting at the seams because these guys had the floor packed all night.  They sounded fantastic and knew how to keep the energy up.  They played us one mean hora–I have honestly never had so much fun and gotten so sweaty during a hora.  Everywhere I looked people (many of whom had never done a hora) were sweaty and dancing, too with huge breathless grins.  Amaretto was fun with the crowd too-at one point the trumpet and trombone player started to travel around the reception hall and dance with guests while playing their instruments.  So fun!!  We got so many compliments on the band and would definitely hire them again in a heartbeat.  Very highly recommend.
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for the amazing job you and your musicians did at our wedding. We had absolutely the best time in much part due to the great music that had everybody dancing and raving about you all.
Thank you also for all your hard work in helping with the preparation, answering a million questions and never saying no to any request. My favorite part was the beautiful music at the ceremony-“The Blower’s Daughter” was so moving and exactly what I had envisioned on my wedding day.  The piano playing with Amy was perfect.
Please, please do not hesitate to use us as a reference for any future couples to contact us.
Thank you again for everything!!! It was the greatest night of our lives.

Dear David,
I cannot begin to tell you how very grateful we are and will always be for the amazing performance you and your band gave us in Severna Park two weeks ago! You all made the party happen and made it happen with flare, pefection, style and grace! The music, the feel, from start to finish could not have been better — you all exceeded my expectations! Thank you thank you thank you! I only wish I could continue to sell your band to brides all over the DC area! We will always remember that perfect wedding day, with 75 degree sunny blue skies, in a beautiful place, with wonderful people and a truly great band carrying us along!
Incredibly grateful,
Claire F., MOB 🙂
Hello David,
I just wanted to let you know how extremely pleased I was with you and your band’s performance at my recent wedding at Congressional Country Club.   As I mentioned when I first booked with you, I saw Amaretto play at a wedding a few yeas ago. I left that wedding saying, ” I want this band to play at my wedding when I get married.” My dream came true and I saw during the reception, what I had always dreamed of ….my family, my best friends, and my husband, dancing the night away and having a great time. The best thing is, I was able to join everyone on the dance floor to enjoy the night I had been waiting for all my life.
You and your crew are just amazing. Your talent to gear music toward the crowd and play what made people dance was unbelievable. Thank you for allowing me to trust you with that task!
I have heard so many people talk about how touched they were when you played, “America.”  It truly was special for that song to be sung, as there were so many people in the room who are or were in the Military, and who serve and protect for the United States of America. It brought a lot of subtle patriotism to the event. Thank you!
Last but not least you all blew my expectations away with your version of U2’s, “All I Want Is You,” and the song “Landslide.” The 2 most important songs were the 2 best.
David, thank you again. Your band’s performance touched my heart and made those who thought live music wasn’t necessary….to THINK AGAIN!
Best to you all,    Chrissy

Video Reviews

I would like to thank you for your superb video of my wedding in Fairfax on May 27.  The videographer was extremely professional and unobtrusive.  The quality of the tape is wonderful and just what we wanted.  I will highly recommend your services to others.  Betsy M.

Thank you so much for the terrific job you and your musicians/videograher did on our wedding.  The music was wonderful and professionally done.  And the video turned out really well. We’ve all enjoyed watching it many times.  Dr. and Mrs. Chris M.

Thank you for having this video service with a professional quality and affordable price.  We are so happy we chose you to videotape our wedding.  We will “spread the word” and recommend your company as we encounter other upcoming marriages.  Debbi and Bruce

Just wanted to thank you for the video services you provided for us to help us capture the most beautiful and memorable evening in our lives.  We appreciate the hard work you put in throughout the evening, and it really paid off because the video came out great.  Gabrielle S.

Thank you so much for dong such a beautiful job at our wedding on February 19, 1994.  The video came out fantastic and we marvel at how you captured the special and spontaneous moments of our special day.  Kristen S.

A simple “thank you” doesn’t seem enough to express how much we appreciate the video of our wedding you made for us.  Your care and sensitivity is apparent in the composition of the video.  We realize its a job for you, but the care you took in making sure you captured the memories of our wedding makes it one of the wedding gifts we will treasure most.  Thank you so much.  Christine.

Thank you for the wonderful video you did for us for Julie’s wedding on October 7.   We love it!  You did a terrific job of capturing the spirit of the evening and all the special moments,  and when we watch it brings back all the happy memories so vividly.  We appreciate the work you did on it.  We are recommending you to anyone who asks.  Ilene P.

You certainly must be Washington’s Best.  Suzy and Warren saw the video when they received it and were delighted.  Warren even said it looked like such a great party that he wished they had been there…. you do miss a little when you are the center of attention.  I have never seen such a professional wedding video — I loved it.  And you were so completely unobtrusive.  Thank you for the superb job and please thank the musicians again for the great job they did to  help everyone have a good time.  What more could parents wish for… Thanks again.  Betsy  S.

We just wanted to take a minute to tell you what a wonderful job you did videographing our wedding on 7/22/95. No one even knew you were there.  And you got all the special moments on tape.  Thank you.  Renee and Paul
