Hello Alicia and Trent,

I just wanted to send you a note to express our genuine appreciation of your contribution to our wedding.

Not only did Lee and I think your jazz quartet did a fabulous job, we received numerous compliments from our guests.

The quartet sounded great, the setlist was exactly what we had envisioned, and you were very accommodating in playing requests.

We would, without hesitation, refer you to our family and friends and will be sure to keep you in mind for any future events.

Thanks again,

Hi Trent,

Jason and I would like to thank you, Trent, and the rest of the Trio for adding something special to our wedding day. 🙂

Working with you has been a great experience! From the very beginning, you made the process simple and always allowed us to take our time in making decisions. You also encouraged us to personalize the music selection which we truly appreciated and was a reflection of us as a couple. On the actual day of the wedding, we were extremely pleased with the jazz trio’s performance. The music played during our cocktail hour was a pleasant backdrop to the conversations and greetings being had by our guests. It set the tone and mood for the remainder of the evening. It was a fabulous way to start the reception! We also found the musicians extremely professional as they were on time, dressed in suits, and set up very quickly and quietly. Jason and I would highly recommend your services to any of our friends and family! Thank you again for adding a very special touch to our wedding day!

Sincerely,

Jennifer and Jason

To potential clients: On September 4, 2009, we celebrated our marriage at the Old Mill Inn and Spa for a garden wedding and a brunch reception. In planning for this special day, we wanted to provide our family and friends with a live jazz band as they enjoyed their brunch. For all wedding planners, whether you have a designated professional wedding planner or you are planning your own wedding– there’s always too many options and services being offered to you via internet and/or referrals. I found Alicia and Trent while browsing through the internet. Their website was professionally pleasing and well organized. Although we were unable to listen to them live due to schedules, the options of being able to listen to their music, the testimonials and availability of Trent to answer any questions via email and/or telephone really made our decision and planning that much easier. We were pleased with the music that they provided for our reception. We had a quartet Jazz band, and indeed they exceeded our expectation on the quality of their music, their performance and professionalism in adding the elegance of music during our reception. — Ian & Li-Anne

Thank-you so much for entertaining us so beautifully at our garden party.

Hi Trent,

The day went better than planned. Like most couples on their wedding day most of the events are just a blur, but certain fragments stand out. While my groomsmen and I were having photos taken in front of the club it was great to hear the music in the background. I know more than one of our guests commented on your performance. One couple mentioned to me later that they stayed long after the ceremony with their newborn to listen to you play.

Thank you again.

Best,

Dear Alicia & Trent

I want to thank you so much for the outstanding performance of your four piece quartet that played at my daughter’s wedding on October 11/08. It was like the icing on the cake before the Wedding festivities actually started. The music was so magical that it put everyone at ease and created a joyous ambiance for the reception line. Everyone commented on what a great choice I made and I know I couldn’t have made a better one! The bride & groom loved your music!! I will surely recommend you to everyone I know!

The booking process and communication was very easy and low-maintenance, and I would definately recommend your services.

To Whom It May Concern,

After meeting with Trent to discuss music options for our wedding, there was really no need to meet with anyone else. You got it, we met with only one musician and that very evening, we booked Trent & a Jazz Quartet for our wedding on Sunday, August 24, 2008 at Auberge du Pommier for our ceremony, reception and dinner reception.

From our brief encounter, we knew we would be working with an individual who is not only truly passionate about music but is organized (as you will find out about his website and quick response to email which was extremely important for us as we were planning our Toronto wedding all the way from St.Louis, Missouri!).

As a bride, you are constantly bombarded with all the other details involved in the rest of the wedding planning and if there was just one area you didn’t need to focus on, it would make your life so much easier. That’s what it was like with working with Trent. I never worried about the music being played nor feel the need to tell them a play-by-play songlist of what had to be played at our wedding because I knew that he and the other members were talented and they do what they do best. The week before our wedding, my husband and I wanted to have our first dance to “I Want to Grow Old With You” and requested if it would be possible to have it sang with lyrics from a member of his band and with his efforts he made it happen! It was beautifully done with the lyrics and instrumentation and all of our guests loved it, including us!

I want to thank Trent and the jazz quartet for being a part of our special day – you guys were amazing and thank you for letting us play with your instruments!

If you are looking for live music for your special ocassion, I would highly recommend Alice & Trent’s Classical & Jazz Ensembles. Really, save yourself the time, energy and stress of planning your big day and hire Alice & Trent!

Sincerely,

Amy & Derek

(Amy & Derek were married at Auberge du Pommier in Aug 2008)

Thank you so much for the wonderful music that Emma and Karlene provided at our wedding on August 3. The music was so lovely, and we received many compliments from our guests that I must pass on to you. They were extremely professional and talented. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone!!

I’d be very happy if you used my letter for your website, or to offer referrals to potential clients!

Thank you!!!!

Kathy

(Kathy and fiance were married at Cardinal Golf Club in Aug 2008)

Hi Trent. The musicians were amazing. (the classical duo also). My guests were thrilled (and surprised) to have a big band. Alex and I loved dancing to their music.

Thank you for everything,

(Nida & her fiance were married in Oct 2007)

 

Hi Trent,

The main thing I wanted to say is that many people thought the musicians were friends of ours, because not only did they play the music awesomely – but they also appeared to be very moved by the wedding itself. No one could believe that these were people I had never met, chosen off the internet – because they in no way appeared to be ‘musicians for hire’.

Because it was my wedding I wasn’t focused on the music (although I loved what I did manage to hear- and it was certainly great….but getting married is an all consuming thing) but it was just the fact that so many people just assumed we had some connection with them because of the way that they played all the pieces…..that made me realize that we had certainly lucked into something far more than ‘musicians for hire’. Apparently someone (I’m not sure who) actually had tears in their eyes as they were playing – a number of people noticed and they were so moved by that.

In any case – thank you…you have no idea what a ‘talker’ I am – I will recommend you to anyone who will listen 🙂

Thanks again!

Patty

(Patty & Alex were married at The Old Mill in Oct 2007)

The musicians were extremely friendly, courteous and more prompt than expected. Their performance was just as advertised, fit perfectly to our desires. They played to exactly what we had requested in the set-up sheet and incorporated the ensembles as we described. All of our guests who had nothing but great reviews and have already requested your contact information for future event planning which I am proud to endorse and recommend.

Overall my wife and I are very happy that we had found you on such short notice and also very grateful for the wonderful performance provided. We are truly happy to say that you were part of the most special day of our lives.

Truly,

Gigi & Joseph

P.S. – You can use my whole comment as a testimonial as we are speaking from our hearts.

THANKS!

Trent,

Both John and I wanted to thank you so much for performing at our wedding. The music at the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the guests have been commenting on them all week!

We also wanted to thank you personally for performing during the cocktail hour. Although, we didn’t get a chance to make it to the cocktails due to pictures, you were kind enough to come into the dinner and entertain us for the remainder of the time. You could have just left and enjoyed the long weekend, but you were truly a class act and we really appreciated it. Not to mention, you guys sounded great!

Finally, we would like to thank you for getting us a guitarist for our post-wedding brunch on such short notice. The muscian was wonderful and our guests were really impressed with him!

We will GLADLY recommend you to all of our friends and families for their events. Thank you so much for everything. It was truly a pleasure to (briefly!) have met you.

Cheers!

Hi Trent,

Thanks very much for providing the musicians for Tashi Ann’s wedding. They were wonderful and the music was calming and delightful. Thanks again for providing their services.

Our apologies for the overtime for the musicians (this was due to the photographer’s delay). However, the musicians were very professional and handled this well.

Once again thanks for your services. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Sonia

(Sonia planned the music for this wedding at Apple Creek Church in August 2007)

 

One zillion thanks.

The music was splendid and perfectly suited to the event and venue.

They were so helpful in starting early-as I mentioned our check-in

process was so smooth we had a room full of people much earlier than

planned and the quartet jumped in and began playing.

Again, we were very pleased and will certainly be booking through you again,

Many thanks

Hi Alicia,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the lovely music yesterday. It was exactly as we had envisioned it. I am sorry I was not able to thank you personally before you left but as you can probably well imagine, there were other things that needed my attention.

You and Pam added that extra little touch that completed what turned out to be a beautiful wedding for Kristen and David.

Thank you again and know that I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who is looking for type of service (although service is not the right word: art is more like it).

Regards,

Sheryl

Thank you for the fabulous music. We had so many comments from people about how great the music was. Many people told us that at first they thought a CD was playing and were pleasantly surprised to see a live trio – a testament to how professional and wonderful you were. It was definitely a treat to have you at our wedding! You were a pleasure to deal with through the whole process. I really can’t give you any constructive criticism, the evening went so smoothly!

We have recommended you to a co-worker of mine who is getting married in September. And we would be happy to recommend you to others in the future! Keep up the great work!

Thanks again for a wonderful evening!
