Kevin,

Without a doubt that was the best night of my life. The beauty of the room, the warmth of those around us, the incredible setting, I have never in my life been happier. And it was you who made this dream come true. We have never heard so many compliments, so much amazement and awe about the music. People were beyond blown away, as was I. I’ve always heard that the music could make or breaka party. It is so clear that your music, your voice, your entusiasm made the party! I cannot thank you enough for everything. Your excitement, your motivating everyone to get up and dance, your energy–WOW. I will definitely send you pictures and give you a call when I get back from our trip to thank you in person. Thank you so much for making our wedding a fairy tale. I also want to thank you for being so gracious, so comforting, so generous and genuine. You are such a classy and kind person, and so responsive to all my crazy emails!

Again, thank you for EVERYTHING.

I will never ever forget it. 

Speak to you when we get back,

Tracy and Jon

To all involved in Wendy and Peter’s wedding:

First to Spencer, who answered all of our questions and helped us each step of the way–thank you soo much. Second to Michael, who helped us with our song selections and reassurances; and lastly and mostly to the Dane Wright Band, who just brought it all home for us. It was a joy not to worry about any part of this process.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Henry Marks Reviews: Bobby Attiko at Alexandra’s Bat Mitzvah

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Lori,

Hi! Now that the dust has settled, I have to let you and Bobby know that every aspect of Alexandra’s Bat Mitzvah was a GIANT SUCCESS! The food, the decor, and the service and of course the music! There hasn’t been a person who I have spoken to who hasn’t RAVED about the band! In fact, I just ran into a friend who told me their friend’s son emailed them from the party to tell them that The Black Eyed Peas were the band at Alexandra’s Bat Mitzvah! Please tell Bobby that in my opinion, The Black Eyed Peas have nothing on his musicians and singers!

Thank you again,

Have a great summer!

All my best,

Amy and Marc

Music was also provided for the wedding ceremony by a beautiful six member string ensemble that included violin, viola, cello, harp, flute and keyboard. The R&B singer Kenny Lattimore sang his hit song “For You” as Carmelo and LaLa walked down the aisle to huge applause. The recessional, “As” was performed as a duet with Kevin and Kenny with additional backup vocals from the band’s singers. Kevin also sang the couple’s First Dance, “So Amazing” by Luther Vandross.  The band opened up with a long hot dance set playing classic Soul and R&B from Stevie Wonder to Michael Jackson. DJ Clue played later in the evening. The entire evening was put together by celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss. Mindy told the band, “They love you!” She said that ‘Melo commented that he had to look up during the First Dance to be sure that it was the band singing and not a recording. That’s the ultimate compliment!  Kim Kardashian tweeted “The ceremony was amazing!!”
