Jilian;

Carrie and I wanted to tell you how unbelievably happy we were with you and the band at our wedding. From the beginning not only did you respond to all of our needs with marked professionalism and grace, but with a rare service minded mentality not often found in today's environment.

With so much else to worry about in regards to planning the wedding, it was a most comforting feeling knowing that such an integral part of the evening was in such good hands with you and the band at our service.

As for the music; it was just perfect. We have received nothing but wonderful feedback about everything regarding the band; how energetic you were, how appropriate, tasteful, personal; you name it! Diggin' Me was incredible, and True Love absolutely blew my parents away along with all their life-long friends who were at both theirs and our weddings!

I could go on forever, but suffice to say that anytime you need a reference, you know you can count on Carrie and I. Thank you again so much for being such a special part of the best day of our lives.

We both wish you continued success in all you do.

Fondly,
Carrie and Jeff

 

 

 

Dear Jilian -

 

We would like to express our thanks to you and each of the members of HotHouse for providing the musical backdrop to what many of our guests have referred to as the most enjoyable wedding reception they have ever attended. Every one of the follow up calls received by our parents, and by us, has included a glowing review of your band’s amazing and spirited performance. Teg and I completely concur with these accolades, as we found that most of our interaction with our guests took place on the dance floor!

As you recall, the Nor’ Easter that passed through West Point that evening made getting to the reception hall an adventure. Increased security on the post injected more negative energy into the event by introducing unexpected travel delays in and around the Military Academy. Hot House was able to redirect that energy in a positive direction by providing five hours of dancing enjoyment. Your masterful blending of upbeat songs and beautiful ballads demonstrated a keen awareness of audience interest and energy level. Every guest, regardless of age, musical taste, or availability of dance partners, had plenty of opportunities to enjoy the band to the maximum. And your choice of “Magic Carpet Ride” as the closing song was a great crowd pleaser.

Jilian, I appreciate how easy you were to work with in the planning of our
reception: for providing insight and recommendations on the song list and
for assuming such a significant role in planning and coordinating with the
reception hall. Your customer focus is unquestionable and is unique in my
experience with other facets of the wedding planning.

I would also like to thank you for the wonderful gift you gave us: the
recording of our “first dance” song. We have enjoyed replaying it many times since the wedding and it brings back such beautiful memories of the most special day of our lives together. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Teg and I feel extremely fortunate to have had you and HotHouse perform at our wedding. One of our guests commented that she considered it a rare treat to have a band perform at a wedding, in lieu of a DJ, and that she enjoyed the experience more than any other wedding she had attended. We appreciate the rare treat you provided for our wedding guests, and for us, and we would recommend you with great enthusiasm to anyone who is interested in a crowd-pleasing performance as part of their special event.

We thank you again and wish you the best of luck!

Hi Jilian!

I just wanted to send my warmest thanks for creating and overseeing the tone of our wedding. You and the band members were wonderful. Everyone had a great time, especially Michael and I. I loved hearing your voice in the background as I bopped along in my dream-like state. And Michael and I were thrilled with your rendering of "Grow Old" and  "just the two of us". Thank you so much for being such a treat to work with, we were really pleased.

If you ever DO record "Grow Old", please let us know! We'd love to have a copy of the performance since you sounded rich and sentimental, and ethereal.

Keep in touch! And all the best for continued vocal success!

Kara and Michael Sullivan

 

 

Dear Jill,

Yvette and I just got back from our honeymoon in Montreal, and wanted to thank you for everything. We have not stopped talking about you and the band since Sunday. Everyone that we have spoken to that was at the wedding has said the same thing to us..."Where did you find that band???? We have never heard a band as great as the one that was at your wedding"
Jill, high energy is not even a good enough description to showcase the talent in your band. True Professionals are what you are, and I make you a promise that anyone and everyone that I know that ever needs a
band will be getting your name and phone number....
We want to just say thank you again for making our wedding a major success.
Love ya guys,
Yvette and Stu Cole

PS Stay in touch

 

 

Hi Jill,

Sorry it took a while to get this out to you, but we are still glowing after the wedding last Sunday. Even with all the work and aggravation of planning the wedding (not to mention the roller-coaster emotions), I wanted to go back to St. Clement's and do it all over again. It was truly phenomenal!!! You guys were GREAT!!!! I want to thank you and the band for doing such a stupendous job. I KNOW all the guests loved the entertainment because we have been hearing compliments all week long. And especially a special thanks for getting those two special request songs together. It could not have been better...could not have been better!!!! I hope other brides and their families will use them at future weddings and enjoy the "moment" as much as we did. Very special! Sorry we made you cry, but heck isn't that what weddings are all about.

When ever we talk about the wedding for many years to come please know that the band will be considered as guests, not just the band...you guys were a part of it and a very big part of it. Thanks again, and, we have two more hopeful weddings down the road so I KNOW you'll hear from us again. Our very, very best to all of you, please keep and stay well and God love ya!

Marie

 

 

Jilian:

We just wanted to send a note to thank you and the rest of the band for helping to make our wedding day truly memorable. Now that the wedding is over and we've had some time to let the day sink in, one of the many things that stands out about the reception was the music. From the introductions of the bridal party to the final song of the night, the music you and the band provided set the perfect atmosphere for a perfect evening. Since the wedding, we've heard countless compliments from our guests on the song selection, the band's musicianship and your voice.

With all the details to tend to, it was great to know the night's music was in good hands. When we first heard your demo, we knew we had selected the right band. But your professional and friendly demeanor only reaffirmed our first impressions. We can't thank you enough for accommodating our special requests, and even letting Billy steal the spotlight for a few minutes.

We wish you all the best. Thanks again for making our wedding reception a night to remember.

Beth and Billy Brucker

 

 

 

Hi Jilian!  

 

I hope you and the rest of the band are doing well. We finally get a chance to
write a note to thank you all for doing such a wonderful performance during
our wedding party. We are not exaggerating when we state that everyone that

was there has commented on how fantastic and fun you all were. A great time

was had by all: everybody was dancing including folks that would not be caught

dead doing so. We got some of them on video in case we need to bribe them

later ;-) . So, as you can probably tell, Tricia and I were extremely pleased.

 

We hope having to come to all the way to Cape Cod did not put you out too much.

 

We will point people in your direction, if anyone should ask us for a band for

their event. Lastly, if you need a reference, please feel free to contact us, we

would be glad to provide one.

 

Thanks again!

 

Marco and Tricia
