What an amazing group. F&A Band had our guests dancing their butts off ALL NIGHT. They really know how to play to a crowd, and made our wedding so incredibly special. My father-daughter dance was a new song to the band, and they learned it quickly and it sounded amazing. They also had a couple Grateful Dead songs- my dad and his friends couldn't have been happier! Keith is a great band leader and Emcee. He kept the party moving and made sure that the toasts, etc. went as planned. The musicians are excellent and the singers were phenomenal! Laraine is an absolute joy to work with and is very responsive via email and phone. She worked with us every step of the way, helping us craft our perfect setlist. She is so much fun and so knowledgable about weddings, particularly the New Jersey wedding scene. She was so helpful with etiquette and planning the night, like entrances and special dances and traditions. I can't recommend them enough! I hope I see them at my friends' weddings in the future!

FAO absolutely made our wedding reception!! So many guests were commenting that they were the best band they ever heard live, including my uncle, who plays in a band himself. They played music that was great for all guests, from mid 20s to grandparents to dance the entire night and they were also very accommodating with different requests throughout the night. They handled everything so smoothly and kept the night going on schedule. I cannot say enough good things about them and would recommend them to anyone!!

This band was out of this world!!!! Laraine was so accommodating to work with, and made all my requests happen!! They even learned the song I wanted played to walk down the aisle to. They were able to work with my budget and had a huge variety of music. The party never stopped dancing! I have had compliments on this band weeks after the wedding was over about how awesome they were and how much fun was had! No one stopped dancing the whole night. Literally, best money spent in the wedding planning process!!!!

Thank you Megan.. i was truly happy that everythig worked out perfectly . There were a lot of moving parts for the wedding. The ceremony at the Cathedral,
the first dance on the veranda and Catrice and Keith nailed it, what a great song choice with the John Legend piece. And then a packed dance floor all night! From the day I met you and Bob I knew this was going to be a very energetic wedding! Can't wait to see your pictures. and a honeymoon in Aruba!! One of my favorite places..please keep in touch....Laraine

Amazing!! We received multiple compliments from guests about how fun our band was! They were upbeat, interactive and a ton of fun! Laraine was great to work with. From our first phone call to meeting in person to discuss different music options a month before the wedding, the entire experience was awesome. The band was even able to learn a few songs for us! What they couldn't learn, they made sure that it was played while the band was on a break. Absolutely recommend for your wedding if you like to dance! Thank you for everything!

If you are looking for a band that will deliver the highest quality instrumentation, instrumental performance, and vocals that will send a chill down your spine then this is the band for you.This is not a gimmicky" wedding band" that substitutes flash for quality music. FAO played at my daughter's wedding on September 24th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I can't get their music out of my head. It was perfection. Keith is a musical genius and each song was executed with complete finesse. FAO is a group of highly talented and skilled musicians that do what they love and produce music that more often than not sounds even better than the originals. We had several special requests, not on their repertoire that they delivered brilliantly. My daughter was so excited to learn how many of the most recent hits were added to their song list just over the summer , such as Major Lazor ,and many more. Laraine, their manager is fantastic to work with and will collaborate with you to tailor the play list according to your tastes. Keith is a jazz pianist and played a Steinway babygrand with the rest of his quintet during the cocktail hour. Our guests were blown away by the performance. During the reception ,the dance floor was packed and no one wanted the dancing to end.

You won't regret it!!! Best band my guests have ever heard. Laraine was a doll to work with - it felt like we were best friends for years. She worked with us to curate a wedding play list that we LOVED, and also learned TWO songs for our wedding (first dance and father/bride dance). The band was outstanding! We wanted really amazing music for our wedding.. not a stereotypical cheesy wedding band and FAO delivered. We highly recommend booking them for your next event. - Kristina and Ron

This band was truly amazing. They had the whole room up dancing. Their versatility and depth of talent is astonishing. Laraine was so easy to work with, I never worried about a thing. They tailored the music to what we requested, and were professional at every step along the way. I could not be more happy with Franklin and Alison. My guests are still exclaiming how great they were.... They were fantastic!!

I can't even begin to tell you how many wedding guests came up to me to tell me that FAO was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. They did such an amazing job from start to finish including finding some strings for the ceremony. I was honestly a little nervous because I had only been to a couple of other weddings with bands and I wasn't sure what to expect but they did such an awesome job that I'm so happy we decided to go with them. the dance floor was packed the entire night with ALL of our guests...both young and old! And Larraine was very helpful with the whole planning process couldn't have asked for a better group of people on my wedding day.

Our wedding absolutely blew our highest expectations completely out of the water!!! Everything was so above and beyond our wildest dreams - it was the very best day of our lives. And, there is not one question that the Franklin Alison Orchestra totally made it that way!!! They were so unbelievable. Everyone one of our guests said the same thing - they kept telling us how amazing the band was - the best they've ever heard at a wedding!! To this day we are still hearing rave reviews of them. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and that's exactly what we wanted...by the last song not one person was sitting down! They even learned a special new song for us, which totally made our night.

Our wedding absolutely blew our highest expectations completely out of the water!!! Everything was so above and beyond our wildest dreams - it was the very best day of our lives. And, there is not one question that the Franklin Alison Orchestra totally made it that way!!! They were so unbelievable. Everyone one of our guests said the same thing - they kept telling us how amazing the band was - the best they've ever heard at a wedding!! To this day we are still hearing rave reviews of them.

We loved the Franklin and Alison Orchestra for our wedding two and a half weeks ago. All of our guests were blown away when they walked in to the reception and saw a 9-piece band on stage ready to go. They made the night so much fun. The owner was wonderful and enthusiastic from the beginning and gave us a great deal. We ended up going for an additional half hour, which was a great idea, and they still had to tell us when they night was over because our guests were having so much fun dancing to their music. We were extremely pleased with their performance and would love to work with them again.
