In The House: References

What an amazing job you guys did again this year - the dance floor was packed!!! Thank you for all you did to help with the flow of the evening! 

Christy Strawbridge - Duxbury Music Festival

We'd like to thank In The House for an incredible performance at our wedding reception last weekend. From the cool jazz played during cocktail hour, to the relaxing dinner set and the rocking dance sets, they exuded consummate professionalism throughout. Stephen, the manager, was very easy to work with - accommodating whenever possible, yet keenly aware of his band's strengths so as to produce the best possible product. The dance sets were unbelievably fun, rooted in the band's bread and butter, funk songs, but complimented by more modern hits that had several generations of dancers on their feet for hours. They were even so kind as to allow the groom (a very modestly talented singer ) to get on the stage and close out the night with one of his favorite songs. This made for a memorable finale to what many have described to us as "the best wedding ever." While we may be biased, we find it hard to argue that declaration, and the music was no small part of it. Thanks again for being part of a fantastic night!"

"We were extremely pleased with In The House.  I spent a fair bit of time selecting a band for our wedding and was pumped when I found this group's great sound and awesome selections.  Stephen was a pleasure to work with in advance and was able to accommodate all of our logistical needs.  We used band members for classical guitar for the ceremony, an organ and guitar jazz duo for the cocktail hour, and a 7 piece ensemble for the reception.  They were great at it all, and kept the dance floor rocking.  Not cheesy at all, they were talented and professional with a swinging set list and great full sound.  I'm pretty picky about music and have seen some pretty good wedding bands, but think we had the best in In The House, and heard many compliments from our guests.

Thank you
Tom and Sally"

"We so enjoyed having you at the Duxbury Music Festival last summer! I also
run a fundraiser at our Hingham campus and am interested to see if you are
available to perform. It's called Chase Away the Winter Blues. It's South Shore Conservatory's biggest annual fundraiser.

FYI please look at your calendar for next year's Duxbury Music Festival tent event.

Thanks and best regards,

"Dear  Stephen,

Thank you and In the House for the outstanding performance at MBHP’s celebration at Fenway Park’s EMC Club on July 11th. The band’s presence and performance at our celebration made the whole event sparkle.  I have heard nothing but rave reviews about In the House by many of the 200+ people in attendance, and have handed out the business cards you gave me for folks interested in booking you for future events.

Thanks, again, for everything.  I hope you had fun, and I look forward to working with you again soon.

"I am writing this letter of reference for the band In The House, not because I was asked to.... but because it is my pleasure. I had the most stress free experience dealing with the band and planning our wedding. Stephen was extremely pleasant and kind to work with. The band came up with the best set lists of songs that suited our personality, and were crowd pleasers for the young and old. Every song was done with such energy, and was performed so well.

The band In The House helped make our wedding day all that we anticipated, and so much more. Every person that attended the wedding remarked on them and their performance. I think they were an inspiration for all of my engaged friends planning weddings. When I think back on our wedding experience, I wouldn't change a thing! And the band helped make all of my childhood dreams come true.

Thanks so much In The House, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hillmann"

"That was the best gig Friday night!  :D  You all were so tight, polished and professional.  Everyone loved In The House!  The compliments just did not stop.  Thanks for getting my parents up on the dance floor!  I think you'll get some referral gigs out of the night.

Thanks also for letting me sit-in for Steve in my accelerated state.  It was a treat to play with so many excellent musicians.  Please thank Steve for having me in for a few numbers and for the very kind and complimentary In The House Tee Shirt. :)

Happy Holidays and I hope to see you soon,

"Hi Stephen,

Max and I just got back from our honeymoon and I wanted to say thank you to you for the fabulous job you did at our wedding.  Almost everyone I've talked to about the wedding has told me how amazing they thought you were.

You had everyone on the dance floor for most of the night which was incredible- and exactly what Max and I wanted.   Thank you so much- and please feel free to use us as a reference if you need it.  We would be thrilled to give you glowing reviews to anyone.

All the best,

"Dear In the House,

We want to thank you for the extraordinary music you played for Lori and Matt's wedding reception on October 2. It was absolutely outstanding. As I am sure you could tell, everyone LOVED it. We have never attended a wedding where literally everyone was on the dance floor and had such a wonderful time. Your music was energizing and kept everyone dancing and wanting more- even after we extended the time you played. Words can't really express how much we appreciate your making the reception such a fun and memorable event. Would it be possible for you to send us a playlist to keep as a memory?

Our best wishes for your continued success! Joan and Paul Shirilla"

"Dear In the House,

I tried to send an email a few minutes ago that said it was interrupted. If this is a duplicate, it is another chance for you to read accolades. I didn't want to take a chance of you not knowing how much we appreciate the great music at Lori and Matt's wedding. Everyone had a fantastic time, as you could tell, since EVERYONE was on the dance floor- from the little children to Matt's grandmothers who are in their 80s. Lori and Matt were so hopeful that everyone would dance and have fun and you exceeded our greatest expectations. People couldn't get enough-even after we extended the play time. Could you send a playlist from the evening for us to keep as a memento?

Thank-you again. We wish you continued success.

Joan and Paul Shirilla"
