"We were delighted to be referred to Ampersand from our caterer Seedling & Sage. Both were terrific, but I especially want to note that Sam and his group have an amazing repertoire. It seemed almost endless! Everything we asked for, they were able to produce--from classical to ragtime, big band, Brubeck and the Beatles. As an "older" couple, we were not comfortable with DJ music and I am SO glad we found excellent live music at an affordable price. It added real elegance to our ceremony and reception, and although our choices were very personal to us, Sam listened well, made great suggestions and coached us along the way. My only regret is that the time went by all too fast and truly, "I could have danced all night" --as could many of our guests! Thanks so much to Ampersand!
Both Ron and I wish you well; it truly was our good fortune to find our way to you. We heard many positive comments from our guests, too!"
"The band looked and sounded great. We were especially touched that you were able to play Billy Strayhorn's Lotus Blossom to get everyone in a festive mood! Your repertoire was huge and expertly played, and fit our vision of having live music at our wedding perfectly. Thanks for making our night extra classy and special!"
"I would absolutely recommend using Ampersand Productions for all your musical needs. The team was great to work with and can offer suggestions on how to jazz up any event (no pun intended) with the addition of musical entertainment. The contracting and payment process was clear and easy and made the entire experience stress-free. For the event, the team was there early and completely set up by the time guests arrived, and multiple guests commented on how nice it was to have them there. Thank you Sam and team for such a great event!"
“I’ve had the pleasure of contracting with Ampersand for a number of dinners and fundraisers. They can provide anything from intimate background music, to a rockin’ band, to wonderful dance music playing “The American Songbook” for the older crowd. Ampersand is versatile, well priced, and, the best part, FUN!!! HIRE THIS COMPANY!!!”
“Our organization has hired Ampersand on numerous occasions for many years to perform and book for large extravagant events as well as small intimate cocktail receptions. They provide very talented musician who always make for a memorable evening. Ampersand is both a professional and reliable company that I would highly recommend and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
