"We see lots of bands here at Moonstone Manor (formerly Conewago Manor Inn) over the course of our wedding season, but 'Flashback with Donna Mark' stood out from the crowd! Their sound and the amazing voice of the lead female singer are both amazing. They were professional, personable, well spoken, and well dressed as is befitting a wedding event. I recommend them to every bride looking for a live band at our venue. We do around 50 weddings a year, and welcome Flashback to play at any and all of them! They are the only live band we recommend.--Penny P., Moonstone Manor http://www.moonstonemanor.com
"We just wanted to write to let you know how exceptional you were at our wedding on March 19, 2011. It was a pleasure to have you at our wedding. Donna, you were so professional in keeping things moving throughout the night. You're all so talented, and your music added even more style and fun to our reception. Matt says, 'The girls danced all night and everyone was happy.' The music always makes the party and you made ours outstanding! Thanks, Tracy and Matthew K., Mechanicsburg, PA

Flashback was the perfect band for our wedding. Donna was very easy to work with and connect about anything concerning the reception. Flashback provided us with a song list and we were able to personalize our reception with the songs we wanted them to play. The whole band is very talented and energetic! Our guests enjoyed the music performance so much that people were constantly on the dance floor and because of this Flashback didn't even take a break during our 3 hour reception. Our guests fed off the energy of the band and in turn the bands energy was electrifying. Flashback provided the perfect celebration for our wedding day and made it a night to remember! If you want to constantly be on the dance floor at your wedding and/or enjoy a very talented band you definitely should have Flashback perform at your wedding reception!

Thanks Marla and Xavier. Your reception was as much fun for us as it was for you and your guests. You really know how to throw a party! The Conewago Manor Inn was the perfect choice. What a gorgeous location. Best of luck to you both. The Flashbackers.
