Rave Reviews

J&Z Gordon (wedding)
Hi Concetta
Just wanted to say a quick thanks!! We’re very happily on our honeymoon, and loving being married. The wedding went off flawless in my eyes, and not only was food delicious, drinks great, but people danced and enjoyed a truly magical evening. We didn’t want it to end! Your band is incredible, but you my dear have a gift that us so special and beautiful that I’d never expected. I will write a GLOWING recommendation anytime you would ever need one. Xoxo

Lisa and Roy (wedding)
Hi Concetta,
Roy and I just wanted to thank you guys for your amazing performance at our wedding on Saturday. We had so much fun and all the guests were raving about the music. Everything was perfect!
Thank you!

Katie & Mark (wedding)
Hi Concetta,
Mark and I wanted to thank you and your band for the amazing job you did for our wedding on September 8th! We had never seen you live so we were going on the recommendation of the Flying Bridge. We were not disappointed! All of our friends and family could not stop raving about how great the music was. I have never seen my uncle Billy and John dance at any wedding and they did not get off the dance floor the entire night! I have never seen anything like it at other family weddings! Even my 85 year old great aunt got up on the dance floor! According to one of my uncles, you all are “stupendous!”. I was told “the music was so good I just could not leave the dance floor!” Thank you for helping to make our wedding great!

Nicole & Bob (wedding)
Hey Concetta,
I just wanted to say, you and First Class were Ahh-MAZING!!! You definitely rocked the house at the Boston Park Plaza! Thank you for making our wedding day one day we will never ever forget and making it the best night of our lives! You definitely helped make this happen for us!! Everyone thought you did a fantastic job as did of course Bob and I! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you perform again soon!!! Hugs!

Sandi Cassese, Mother of the Bride (wedding)
It’s the day after the day after and we are all still talking about the band! When Dana, the bride, first told me (M.O.B.) about hiring you I was thrilled since she’s been following you for quite some time. I knew it would be great – but you exceeded all expectations! Dana and the rest of our family are so pleased that you welcomed Neil, her father, to sit in on a few songs – especially “Brown Eyed Girl” – it’s always been a thing between them. I too enjoyed my little cameo – don’t know how that one happened though. Everyone knows that music makes the party – thanks for making ours. To quote Dana – “You’ll see mom – they are the kick-ass band of all bands” How right you are Dana. How right you are.

Mandy Connor Owner, Hummingbird Bridal and Events (event)

Colleen & Michel Lacasse (wedding)
First Class Band,
Thank you for performing at our wedding. You were AMAZING! We have gotten so many people tell us how amazing the band was! We couldn’t have asked for anything more, you were flawless! I LOVED the acoustic version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” you performed!
We can’t thank you enough!

Mary (Mother of the Bride, wedding)
Tania,
Please pass along our thanks to Concetta and the First Class Band. They really set the tone for Katie & Billy’s wedding reception. Everyone had a great time. A friend of ours sitting at our table commented that he hadn’t seen so many people up dancing at a wedding in years!

Chris and Laura Cassani (wedding)
Hi Concetta,
We just wanted to thank you again for playing at our wedding – it was amazing!! We had so many people come up to us and tell us you were the best band they had seen – you really brought such a great energy to our event and we really appreciate it. We will absolutely recommend First Class Band to our family and friends – thank you again!!

Doris Fine, Mother of the Bride (wedding)
Hi Concetta!
We would like to thank you and your wonderful band members for helping to make Leah and Craig’s wedding so much fun. As you know, we danced the night away (including many people who I have not usually seen on the dance floor over the years) and our guests are all still raving about how great you were and how much fun we all had.
Your music was perfectly pitched to the moment, and your range (rock to polka to waltz) truly impressive. My nieces will always remember their chance to “perform” with a real band! As you know, we had a large group of “musical professionals” and all agreed you hit all the right notes in every way. Thanks to all of you for your huge contribution to making the wedding a truly memorable event.
All the best to you and your band members.

Janel (wedding)
Hi Concetta and Elaine,
We just want to thank you both for the wonderful band on our wedding day. I got so many complements throughout the day and after about how much people loved the band and the music! Thanks so much for getting everyone up and dancing. It was a day we’ll never forget and you were a huge part of that! We really appreciate it!

Hi Concetta
Thanks so much for helping make our wedding such a blast! You guys were amazing, everyone was raving about you, and we had the best night! 🙂
Thanks again!

Jack Dearie (Father of the Bride, wedding)
Dear Concetta:
Before the euphoria of the past weekend fades and we return to business as usual, I wanted to let you know what a fabulous job you and your band did performing at Kelly and Alex’s wedding reception last Friday. I lost count of the number of people who told me it was the best wedding band they had ever heard and how blown away they were by your beautiful voice as well as the energy and charisma of the First Class band. While words hardly suffice, let me simply say “thank you” from the bottom of our hearts for an experience our family and friends will remember the rest of our lives.

Melissa Berg (wedding)
Hi Concetta – I’ve been meaning to send you a short note to say thank you so much for making our wedding on May 22nd at Willowdale Estate such a fantastic event!! People are still raving about how great the band was and how you all could play such a range of music, and do it all so well! I’ve already passed your name onto a few friends and family members for their consideration for future events and will continue to do so.

Thanks to you and all the band members for keeping the energy going all night long, playing such a great assortment of music and for making the night go so smoothly! Brian and I had a blast, and it was a night we will remember for the rest of our lives.

We hope you get some time to enjoy the summer in between all the performances this season. Thanks again for everything and maybe our paths will cross again at a future event.

Patrick & Melissa (wedding)
I just wanted to let you know that First Class was everything they were hyped up to be and more. The wedding was incredible and they were a HUGE part of why. Melissa and I wanted to thank you and also the band for an unforgettable day. If you could pass this along to Concetta and the rest of the band that would be great!

Carly & Sam (wedding)
Hi Pam,

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend. I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how WONDERFUL First Class was on Sunday. I’m sure you hear this all of the time, but they were the highlight of our wedding. Sam and I had the most wonderful wedding and the band helped make it possible. The crowd loved Concetta and the rest of the band. Our dance floor was full all night! We had quit a few people at the wedding whose kids are getting married soon and I hope you don’t mind if I pass on your contact information. Please know how much we appreciate all of your help in finding First Class and helping make our wedding day extra special. I know our photographer got some good pictures of the band. I’ll be sure to pass them on to you!

Kathy & Gary Picci (Parents of the bride!)
Dear Concetta and Members of the First Class Band,

You performed at my daughter’s wedding(Jen & Matt) at Church Landing on Jan 30th. When Jen started planning her wedding, the one thing that she was adamant about was the reception music. She said that’s what made a wedding reception amazing. Well, she was absolutely correct in choosing your band…you were superb…”the best of the best”!!! Your performance, selection of music(thank goodness, no cheesy-dances) and incredible musicality was so exceptional. Some of our guest were musicians and/or former band members and they were so impressed with you and raved about your sound and how you all complimented one another. They said they hadn’t heard a group like yours in years!!!

All our guests enjoyed themselves immensely and we received so many compliments praising your group and “how great the band was”. Even my little grandchildren danced the night away! We cannot thank your group enough for your part in making Jen & Matt’s wedding reception one they will never forget!

Continued success in all your endeavors….

Kirsten and Dennis (Wedding)
Hi Concetta!

We wanted to thank you for your wonderful performance last weekend at our wedding! You and all the band members were fantastic and we are getting rave reviews from all of our friends and family! The last song was phenomenal and we really appreciate that you sang one more song for us! You had the perfect balance of keeping the dance floor packed and not blowing out my father’s ear drums! It was a perfect day for us and we thank you for being a part of it! Thank you for everything!

All the very best,
Kirsten and Dennis (Wedding)

PS Pam, thank you for being such a great contact! You made the planning such a breeze. What a stressful year it has been and to work with such friendly professionals made the whole process so much more enjoyable. Thank you!!!

Kristen Mitchell (Mother-of-the Bride, wedding)
Hi Pam,

We had a wonderful wedding, and First Class Band was fabulous! They really made our reception and were such a talented group of true professionals! Everybody raved about them! Again, we loved First Class Band and loved having your help in making our special event so memorable. It has been a pleasure to work with you!

Altogether exceptional! First Class Band featuring Concetta made our wedding, “The Wedding of the Century” according to our guests. Each member of the 7 piece combo functions cohesively with the rest–and they do more than merely “play” songs…this group “PLAYS”…they dance, sing, entertain and function on a level beyond your expectations. There were several world class musicians on our guestlist–and the members of First Class didn’t know this–but the bride and groom were both musicians as well (groom is classically trained, and the bride was a stage and studio professional for years—so, in other words, we are EXTREMELY PICKY)…and everyone agreed that this band took the concepts of event entertainment to the highest caliber..everything was completely perfect–not one macarena, not one chicken dance…not one iota of wedding band cheesiness to be found anywhere! Concetta is also amazingly helpful and flexible–she and the band learned our “song” 2 weeks prior to the wedding, and they pulled it off as if they had written it. There aren’t enough words to express how grateful we are for this group–and for Gail of the Hank Agency for finding them for us. We would easily recommend Concetta & crew for any event…absolutely amazing! Thanks!

Mercedes & Kyle (Newport R.I. wedding)
Dear Concetta and the band,
Thank you for making our wedding so perfect and special! I must admit that I was a little nervous at first about hiring a band I never heard live before. But, you all blew the doors off my expectations! I wish we could have danced and partied to wee hours of the morning. You guys were just phenomenal!! Also, thank you for being so accommodating. (-: I cannot tell you how many compliments we’ve received from our guests saying that the band was fantastic.”Where did you find them ” They asked. All of you really made our party (wedding) the best!
Thanks again!

Ken and Michelle Kubec
Michelle and I wanted to thank you for your AMAZING performance at our wedding a couple of weeks ago! The praises continue to pour in from family and friends! The flow of the evening was perfect, and your enthusiasm, professionalism and performances were relentless. Whether you guys were playing Al Green or Bon Jovi you kept the dance floor packed all night long. Even with the hour extension, I feel as though we couldn’t get enough of you guys. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You guys rocked. Thank you for helping us celebrate our special day!
