Jack went above and beyond our expectations. He was fantastic to work with and provided so much insight into our planning and making the coordination of the day go smoothly. Knowing how busy Jack is throughout the year (we booked the last open date of 2014) his attention and focus on our wedding made us feel like we were his only client. This doesn't even begin to touch on the band's performance on our wedding day.

The samples you hear on his website, while they are wonderful and one of the many reasons I chose to book Jack Garrett and The Syndicate, the samples are nothing to the live performance. Jack made sure to provide a continual increase in energy to the night and was able to build off of the moods and reactions of our guests - all while the band remained completely in sync. This extremely talented group of gentlemen and Theresa blew all of our guests away, making the dance floor impossible to leave, even my 86 year old grandmother was out there! The band was even able to support a surprise performance by my best friend, with no practice prior to the event - a feat in and of itself.

An outstanding band was my Number 1 priority for our wedding. Really, all you need are these guys and a dance floor - forget the flowers and the food.

Jack Garrett and The Syndicate were one of the highlights of our daughter's wedding. A big band sound, with professional musicians, who love what they do, performing great music, and entertaining.
Jack guided us through the process and details of having a schedule and timeline for the reception, so that the couple, family and friends could celebrate in incomparable style. We loved the maturity and depth of accomplished musicians. The band also showcased the performance of the bride's close friend during the reception. Everyone was on the dance floor, from 5 yr olds to 85 year olds. Jack Garrett and the Syndicate provided the music to insure it was a night to remember for a lifetime!

I must admit that I was a picky bride and had very high expectations. Jack Garrett and The Syndicate absolutely blew me away! During the planning process Jack helped my husband and I come up with a very detailed timeline and even helped with cool photo op ideas! We decided to add Teresa as an addition vocalist and could not have been happier! They are magical together! Jack Garrett and his band are able to create a classy and fun environment for people of all ages! Our guests were beyond impressed! The dance floor was packed all night and even my older guests were tapping their toes and enjoying the music! It was important to us to provide an experience that everyone would enjoy and they went above and beyond what we expected! I would highly recommend this band to anyone! Trust me...you will not regret it! We absolutely loved dancing the night away as Mr. and Mrs. Jack, thank you for helping to create an evening that we will remember for the rest of our lives! It truly was the wedding of our dreams!

We hired Jack Garrett and The Syndicate for our June wedding in Lexington, KY and could not have been happier! Our wedding reception was truly an amazing party thanks to them, and they had our guests of all ages dancing on the dance floor and having a good time. Their energy livened the party and we've lost count of how many guests told us during and after the wedding, how much they enjoyed the band, and how it was the best wedding reception they had been to in ages. We were incredibly happy with the songs they played, and very impressed by Jack's singing voice, MC talents, and the female vocalist's talents as well. Jack also helped us arrange the timeline of events for our wedding which was extremely helpful and much appreciated since we did not hire an actual wedding planner. Our experience was absolutely perfect and we highly recommend Jack and his band for any event!

These guys were amazing. I've chaired many charity and corporate events over the last forty years, most of which included music so I am no stranger to booking and working with bands. Jack Garrett is a total professional - what you see and hear on his web-site is truly what you get and more. We had considered saving money and hiring a DJ, but for my only daughter's wedding I wanted to splurge on a great live band and it was worth every cent. Jack worked closely with my daughter, son-in-law and the wedding coordinator choosing a long play (and don't play) list and developing a solid script for the evening - his advice and insights were invaluable. More than that, Jack and his band have the innate ability to "read" the moods of the room and play just the right music to electrify our guests and keep the party going. I was also very impressed that they played long sets and took very short breaks (filling the breaks with appropriate recorded music). In my experience this is quite rare....many bands seem to play for 20 minutes, then take a 25 minute break....Not Jack!
I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to book them again.

Jack Garrett and the Syndicate played at our wedding in May. My #1 goal for the wedding was for people to have fun and dance. To me, the band was the most important aspect of the wedding. And Jack Garrett delivered! Everyone, I mean everyone, was dancing for hours on the dance floor. We even extended the party a half hour because everyone was having such a ball. Jack kindly offered to stay and continue to DJ as well. I got so many compliments on the band from friends to grandmothers. Jack Garrett and the Syndicate had such a range and were able to play classics like Sinatra and also more modern stuff like Pharrell's "happy". Thanks Jack for being a great singer and MC for the night!

We planned a black-tie wedding, and wanted to make sure the music was full of energy. Jack and the Band delivered. The vibe in the room was great! Non-stop music and dancing, and we received so many compliments from our family and friends. Everyone had such a great time, and the Jack Garrett and the Syndicate really helped to pull together an amazing night. They truly helped make the night so special and memorable. If you are interested in great music, and want a band and band leader who will keep the energy up and keep guests dancing, Jack Garrett and the Syndicate are your best bet! I highly recommend them.

We will admit, we splurged on the band. We were having a vintage style wedding. I am a wedding photographer, so I knew the difference between a good wedding band and a great one. We found Jack Garrett online and after seeing a few video clips, we knew he was the band to beat.

After our first conference call, we knew he would cost a little more than we had planned, but we knew he was going to be worth it. It was the best money we have ever spent. Seriously. Jack and his amazing band of talented musicians were so good, so fun, so cool and provided the perfect entertainment for our wedding.

But above all, is Jack. We finally met Jack in person about 6 months before the wedding and just fell in love with him. He totally got us and knew what we wanted. I had a special tribute I wanted to do for my father and asked Jack if he could play an MP3 of a song my dad wrote and recorded in 1966 to surprise him and after listening to the song, Jack did not hesitate to say, 'I am going to teach this to my band and we are going to perform this live for your dad". Needless to say, it was one of the highlights of the night and blew my dad away.

His female vocalist Theresa was tremendous and did such a beautiful job with our first dance (Sade, By Your Side) as well as my dad's song. The whole band was amazing and Jack had a great feel for the guests and when to get everyone up and when to cool it down for toasts. He even let the groom join the band playing harmonica, which was another amazing highlight for me.

We decided not to hire a videographer and knew we would have friends capture some moments on their phones, but 3 weeks later Jack suddenly lets me know he has it all on video. and is now posting these incredible memories online and I am just giddy watching them.

Many of our friends and family are musicians. We have heard nothing but rave reviews from all of them on how good this band is. Well worth the money. Jack made the night perfect.

Wow! If you want a first class affair Jack Garrett is a must!!! Go to Jack's website read what they wrote, everything is %100 true!!!! If you're looking for the real deal they are it, let me save you time! From the first phone call with Pam to meeting Jack at the venue, so he knew exactly what we wanted Jack/and the band delivered! The two vocalist were awe inspiring and the rest of the 11 piece orchestra was perfect! Jack was our master of ceremony and took care of where we needed to be through out the reception. Perfection! Thank you!

From the moment you visit Jack Garrett's website you will know this is the band for you. Jack is 100% professional, all class, and incredibly talented... Along with every member of his band he brings along. Luckily, my husband and I had the pleasure of Jack and an 11 piece band for our wedding on 2/22/14. We met with him a few times before the wedding to determine the schedule, our song lists and he had fabulous ideas for song choices and scheduling. He customized the song list to exactly what we wanted and we had the option to say no requests (which was what my husband and I wanted). The day of the wedding went smooth and we couldn't have been happier! Chose Jack Garrett. You won't be disappointed

My now husband and I knew that a band was one area we wanted to splurge on because music is important to us and our venue (Coney Island at Moonlight Gardens) was made for a big band. We hit if off with Jack immediately during our first meeting. He was really upbeat and listened to us while still using his expertise and knowledge to lead us through the ins and outs. One of the perks of using Jack is that he provides a tentative schedule to keep the night flowing - and trust me it flies by so you need this!!! Jack and the band kept our reception hopping from the cocktail hour through the last song. He played a nice mixture of Frank Sinatra type music and more recent dance tunes. We had a pretty young wedding crowd and the dance floor was not empty for a minute! EVERY guest that has seen us since the wedding had told us we had the best, most fun wedding they've ever been to! And everyone attributed this to the band and the venue. Moreover, Jack and his band composed and played a very special Dave Matthews song for our first dance, which I know meant the world to my husband.

My now husband and I knew that a band was one area we wanted to splurge on because music is important to us and our venue (Coney Island at Moonlight Gardens) was made for a big band. We hit if off with Jack immediately during our first meeting. He was really upbeat and listened to us while still using his expertise and knowledge to lead us through the ins and outs. One of the perks of using Jack is that he provides a tentative schedule to keep the night flowing - and trust me it flies by so you need this!!! Jack and the band kept our reception hopping from the cocktail hour through the last song. He played a nice mixture of Frank Sinatra type music and more recent dance tunes. We had a pretty young wedding crowd and the dance floor was not empty for a minute! EVERY guest that has seen us since the wedding had told us we had the best, most fun wedding they've ever been to! And everyone attributed this to the band and the venue. Moreover, Jack and his band composed and played a very special Dave Matthews song for our first dance, which I know meant the world to my husband.

My wife and I were looking for a big sound for our venue. We definitely didn't want a DJ, we wanted that live music sound. Jack Garrett and the Syndicate Band were a great fit. The Soundtrack they provided for our night was unforgettable.

I used Jack Garrett and The Syndicate for my wedding on August 10, 2013. Jack was helpful and involved from the start, helping us pick our music, decide on the order of events, and determine what we wanted the overall feel of the night to be. I wish words could express how amazing Jack and his band were on the night of the wedding. The music was abosultely fabulous, and people were dancing all night long. After the wedding, every person I spoke to said that the band was by far the best part of the evening. My dad (the father of the bride) said that he wants to host another party just so he can hire Jack and his band again, and is already insisting my brothers (ages 17 and 19) use Jack for their weddings. I cannot recommend Jack enough. He made my wedding an incredible, beautiful and memorable experience, and I would absolutely hire him again.

Jack Garrett and The Syndicate did an amazing job at our wedding! Jack met with us to set up a timeline for the reception and kept in contact with us if we needed to change anything. We knew what was going to happen and when we could expect it. The music was fantastic as well! We have gotten a lot of compliments from our family and friends about the band. They played music from today along with classic songs. Jack did a great job making sure people were on the dance floor and having fun all night long. I would recommend Jack and The Syndicate to anyone who is looking for a great band that will guarantee a fun night for everyone.

Asking Jack Garrett and the Syndicate to play at our June 22 wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made! From start to finish, the dance floor was packed and full of excitement and anticipation as to what this talented group of musicians would play next. The band played a variety of styles such as big band, jazz, swing, rock n roll and oldies. When my husband wanted a particular song for the mother son dance, Jack had the score written and sang what became the most memorable song of the evening. He then sent us the YouTube videos of our first dance, father daughter and mother son dance while we were on our honeymoon. That is one of the many examples of the quality of service that he provides.

Jack was a joy to deal with. He was enthusiastic, comforting and happy to accommodate any ideas we had regarding our reception. Our wedding was elegant, classy and beautiful and we owe that to Jack!

As the mother of the bride, my husband and I naturally wanted to fulfill every detail on our bride & groom’s wish list in regards to music and entertainment. Jack not only accomplished every detail, he surpassed our expectations with his professionalism and talent. From our first meeting with Jack when we shared our vision of the reception, the excitement of the wedding day started to build. Jack listened, asked questions, took notes, offered suggestions, did some research, met with the bride and groom and created a customized plan for their event. On paper, everything looked great; in real life, everything was spectacular!
Our guests entered the reception with smiles that changed to expressions of wonder and surprise as Jack’s singing voice welcomed them into the event. Friends and family that spanned four generations attended and all were inspired to get on the dance floor and be a part of the celebration because of Jack’s masterful emcee skills, his perfect blending of tunes, and his captivating voice.
In addition, Jack’s professionalism guided us through the evening so that as parents of the bride, hosting the reception, all we had to do was enjoy. We highly recommend Jack Garrett Music for any special occasion!

Jack was wonderful for our wedding on June 8th. We had a large wedding reception of 300 people. Jack sang and deejayed for us that evening. Jack was great in the planning process, helping me come up with a timeline and a flow for the evening. He brought up points that I wouldn't have even thought about that made the day run so smoothly.

So many people came up to me during and after the wedding complimenting Jack's singing. I wanted something more than just a dj, and Jack brought that personal touch along with the fun dance songs for the evening. I loved how it surprised our guests that our dj sang. He didn't sing until it was our first dance, and that surprise element was fantastic.

Jack catered to all of mine and my husband's needs and wants. He learned a song that was important to us and sang it that evening. He kept the dancing going and could read the crowd so well.

I would HIGHLY recommend having Jack at your wedding. He not only makes your day special but also helps you before hand so you know what to expect. I can't say enough good things about Jack and our experience. He definirtey made our wedding all the better and really made it an event that people are still talking about.

I have to say, my wedding was absolutely perfect due to Jack and his band. Not only was their execution, preparation and attention to detail exceptional, their willingness to deal with out of the box situations surpassed any and all expectations. I can't thank Jack enough for his professionalism and most MOST certainly most important - his excitement for my event. So many vendors are blase since they have most likely been there done that more than 100 times. Every time with Jack and Pam is like their first time...its like your wedding is their first wedding. That enthusiasm encourages and motivates everyone involved.

Besides their eclectic musical background, willingness to please on all levels and beyond beautiful performances, Jack Garrett and his team will, without a doubt, never disappoint. My wedding could not have happened without him and that is the truth.

Jack coordinated one of my most memorable nights of my life. His attention to detail throughout the planning sessions, weeks leading up to the big day, and our wedding night were so greatly appreciated. Jack put just as much thought, time, patience, and dedication into planning this night as I did, perhaps more! It was great to see our family join together on the dance floor and enjoy the evening! Possibly the most memorable was the song choice Jack chose for the dance of the groom and grooms mother; "I wish you love." My mother-in-law still sings verses of that song! There is no doubt that Jack and the guys deserved to win The Knot awards - their professionalism and years of experience certainly show through. Since Jack took the time to get to know my husband and I, our vision, our likes and dislikes, I felt very comfortable that Jack would take care of us and our family during the reception - and he did. I couldn't be more thankful or happier. For our anniversary, Jack made us a wonderful DVD of our entrance into the reception room and our first few dances. It was a perfect way to relive the evening!

My most important review point is this - contact Jack Garrett now! What an amazing group of musicians he and The Syndicate are. Simply wow! Jack made our celebration fun, classy and beautiful. His version of "Wonderful Tonight" is stunning, and all I can say is what a way to end the evening! Jack and the guys (plus his wonderful assistant Pam) were easy to communicate with, extremely professional and provided an incredible amount of fun at our wedding reception. Jack learned the song we wished to dance to for our first dance and then played it live ... just for us ... and it was great!! There's a reason Jack has so many rave reviews. He's not just a wedding musician, he and his band LIVE music and it shows in the caliber of their performance. Jack will get your party started and keep it hopping while doing everything in between. If you desire incredible music for an unforgettable night, call Jack now!

I found Jack Garrett through my searches on wedding websites and the reviews that he was given. I then took a spin on his website and was even more impressed with the quality of his art! I have a music background (as do many in my family), so it was important to me to have the best - and I did!!
Not only did Jack give a great performance but -
Being my first wedding, I didn't have a lot of background information on how everything was supposed to flow. I didn't want to hire a planner, and I didn't have to! Jack helped me plan the agenda for the evening!
We took an hour and discussed everything that would happen from the time we said "I do" until the very last dance and exit. He was more than the wedding singer for our wedding - he was more like the glue that stuck everything together perfectly! I'd hire him again and recommend his work to those looking for a classy wedding reception.

Asking Jack Garrett and the Syndicate to play at our wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made! The band was full of excellent musicians capable of playing a wide variety of styles, with particular expertise in big band, swing, jazz, old rock n roll. But more than that, Jack knew exactly how to please our guests. From start to finish the dancefloor was packed and full of energy, and after our wedding every guest we spoke to had nothing but praise for Jack and the band.

Jack was also very easy to deal with in the run up to our wedding. He was enthusiastic and happy to accommodate any ideas we had when we met with him. Jack also gave us lots of advice regarding the timeline of the wedding reception based upon his previous experience, which was also very valuable to us.

If you're looking for a band to play at your wedding, and want to be able to relax when it comes to the reception and know that the party is in good hands, I couldn't recommend Jack Garrett any more.

As much as you wish to believe it's the guests, venue or even yourself that will make your reception run smoothly it is simply not true! The man with the microphone is picking the songs, cuing the toasts and setting the mood for the whole event. Jack Garrett and his band were unbelievable but not only that his experience and professionalism, his overall preparation and homework he did for the day was amazing. He was an absolute superstar and I have received so many compliments from all the guests in attendance. I won't be throwing any party with out Jack. I highly highly recommend him! Thanks again Jack.

We made the perfect decision hiring Jack Garrett. Five Stars are not enough to describe this fabulous band. Several members of our family are classically trained musicians and we had high expectations for the music for the wedding of our only daughter. In addition, the bride and groom love to dance and dreamed of dancing their night away to big band music. Jack Garrett surpassed by ten-fold everything we all wanted. Jack’s voice and personality provided an amazing mood for this wedding - move over Michael Bublé. The band members were incredible. We were blown away by the caliber of talent of each member of the Syndicate, his 10-piece orchestra. They played the music WE wanted to hear and had a great repertoire from which to choose our selections. He took charge of the reception so that everything ran smoothly. His sound equipment is of high quality. They sound even better in person than the recordings online (speaking of online – check out “Ice Ice Baby” (word to your mother)! The floor was packed all evening. I wish we had a CD. We will attend his public performances in the future.

My husband and I found ourselves in a hard position where the band that we had planned to use for over a year fell through a week before our wedding. We found Jack’s band by happenstance when we googled ‘Cincinnati Wedding Band.’ Despite it being nerve wrecking to find a vendor just through the internet, we fell in love with his voice the moment we played their version of ‘Ice, Ice Baby’ on their website. After sending an initial email, we found out that they were booked solid, but since our wedding was on a Sunday they were available for our night.

From the first moment we spoke on the phone they were timely, diligent and on top of any issue or concern we had. Jack called and pulled all of his A-list players and created an unforgettable, perfect night for us. This is a testament to his professionalism - that he could pull together such a spectacular night with just one week to plan. He provided everything that we had with our original band and then surpassed it. Jack is a great asset and we wish would have known about him sooner.

The dance floor was never empty and when we got our photos back from our photographer, everyone is grinning ear to ear. The music was never too loud and conversation was easy to have during dinner. Today, we still receive many compliments from guest about the music and how much fun they had at our wedding.

If you are looking for a band for a special event, do not look any further. You will not get any better than this and you will never regret making this decision. Jack is honest and we did not have one bad experience, conversation or issue with them before, during or after our wedding. It should tell you something that we look forward to his performances in town. That’s how good they are. That is how good they will leave you and your guests feeling during and after your party - which is really all that you hope to do. We are so happy we found them, even if it was from happenstance. We just chuckle and say that it was just meant to be.

Jack Garrett stepped up with only two weeks to go till the wedding when we had a problem with the first band. Jack was calm and cool from the get-go and we knew our wedding had literally been saved. He offered a ton of fresh ideas for our reception, meticulously planned every song, dance, sequence and MC event, provided the pianist and sound equipment for the ceremony, a trio for our waiting hour, played every song we requested, and assembled a super-star band of local and national jazz legends, with almost no time to work with. He even let me sit in on a song. I could not be happier with Jack, his band, or how the wedding went. Jack is a consummate professional and his services are worth much more than he charges. My wife and I have started attending his monthly concerts, as it is a rare pleasure to hear talented big bands anymore. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants a classy, professional and kicking band in their wedding.

His live serenading during the dinner hour was really a big hit with all the guests Jack is master of his craft and does everything first class. Read less

Jack and his band performed for our daughter's wedding. Not only did his band play live music, he is also a DJ and MC. He kept the time frame moving so all events were on time. He walked among our quests during dinner and sang. All the guests were amazed, they thought it was "canned" music, until he came by. Several mouths dropped open when he came by their table. He was excellent! The attention to detail is great. You get to choose every song, played, performed or sung. Dad did not want to spend the money, but will testify today it "made the reception". A fantastic value, people will think you spent so much more!

My husband and I are musicians, so one of the biggest wedding priorities for us was having great live music at our reception. Luckily, we found Jack Garrett and his fabulous band! This group of amazing musicians provided wonderful music for the entire evening, from jazz standards and Sinatra classics to ballads and swing tunes and wedding favorites! Our guests from all generations loved the professional caliber of the group and spent the evening dancing and enjoying the talents of the fine musicians. From the beginning of our interactions, Jack was extremely professional and very friendly. Jack made our meetings very convenient by being flexible with his schedule and driving to meet us in Cincinnati. We met twice to discuss an itinerary for the evening and also to talk about song lists and Jack was very thorough in following-up to make sure our evening would go as smoothly as possible. Jack has extensive experience with weddings, and his advice and suggestions were extremely appreciated. He helped us so much with organization and timing - and his personality was such a joy to have as part of our wedding. Jack went above and beyond for us with the music. He had an arrangement of our favorite song written for his band so we could have a live version for our first dance, and it was perfect. Jack's band provided a fun duo jazz combo for our cocktail hour and played some laid back tunes during dinner, then broke the dance floor open with "In the Mood" after our toasts. Guests are still telling me how much they loved the music (truly professional - sounds like all the recordings!!), and the floor was full for the entire evening. Even some guests who were unable to dance stayed until the end of the night just to enjoy the amazing group, headed by Jack's vocals. When I think of our wedding night, I think of how perfect it was because Jack and his musicians were there. Bottom line: Jack will work with you to design a beautiful evening. He is friendly, organized, charismatic, and extremely talented as a vocalist and band leader. You and your guests won't ever forget Crooner Jack and his fabulous musicians!

Jack and the Swinging Stars (10-piece band) played at our wedding reception in Toledo OH in October 2010, and they exceeded our expectations. The band was enjoyed by guests of all ages. They were classy during dinner, and brought a great level of energy as the night progressed.

In addition to great music, Jack met with us to help plan a wonderful reception. After our meeting, he sent a full reception schedule which proved to be very helpful. Jack also provided DJ services during the bands few short breaks, and he was a great Emcee for the evening.

Jack goes above and beyond the call of duty. Not only was he willing to accommodate our idiosyncrasies (e.g. special song requests, trivia games, wedding party announcements), but he made sure that he did it with professionalism and perfection. I wanted a classic Sinatra/Bobby Darin/swing sound to the music during the reception, and he did this to perfection- our guests loved it. He also included some renditions of modern music that really entertained our younger guests. Making sure our wedding (ceremony AND reception) ran well was his main priority. He met with us twice. The first time we met was so that we could get a frame of events. The second time we met was so that he could get all the details perfectly. I didn't have to worry about a thing, and we received many compliments from the guests about the music. He travels and is very reasonably priced...

Jack Garrett and his band made our wedding reception! His musicians are very high caliber and Jack paced the music so the dance floor was full all night long. They sounded so good that they even had people up and dancing during the dinner hour! Jack was great in the planning stages and met with my husband and I multiple times to custom tailor our night. He planned the evening with us beforehand and then acted as MC, vocalist, band leader, and also DJ the night of. Jack even had a song arranged for his band for our first dance that they'd never heard before, and he and the band played it perfectly. We felt very comfortable that he had everything under control, so we were able to relax and enjoy our night. We got so many compliments on the music the next morning! I can't recommend Jack and his band enough if you want live music for your reception. You won't be disappointed.

Jack Garrett and his band were exactly what we wanted for our wedding reception. He kept our guest entertained and dancing for the entire night-in fact he even had to help us kick people out at the end of the party! Jack was great at knowing our guest and played music that kept the dance floor full. Everyone, from our great aunt to our young cousins enjoyed what Jack had to offer. What I am most grateful for is how professional he was throughout the entire planning phase before our wedding. He was certain to meet with us in person multiple times so that he could really get to know us and what it was we were looking for. He also eliminated the need for a wedding coordinator for the wedding reception as he had everything in control. This was great as it kept me from worring and allowed me to just enjoy the moment. I would highly recommend Jack and his band to anyone who is looking for a classy, professional, service that promises to also deliever a great time!

We wanted our guests to have the time of their lives and everyone did. The dance floor was packed all night! We did not have one negative comment. Everything went absolutely perfectly. He really works with you before your reception to plan the whole night, you don't need a wedding planner if you have Jack. He does it ALL!

We lucked out. All of our vendors were great but Jack and the Band were unbelievable. We wanted a band that everyone could enjoy, young and old alike. Jack Delivered. It was more than we had expected. Jack was extremely professional and we were able to enjoy our day as Jack kept everything on schedule and gave us cues to do all the stuff that you have to do at a reception�cut cake, first dance, father daughter dance, etc. You�d be surprised how when you�re being pulled in many different directions these things can slip your mind. Jack kept it all on track.

The music was AWESOME! Everyone loved the band which was professional and, dare I say, groovy! Everyone was dancing and he created exactly the mood we were looking for, more like a laid back cocktail hour. We were told by several people that our reception was the most fun one they had attended, due in no small part to the excellent band. We would like to thank Jack for the hours he put in before the wedding reception, for assembling a great band, and making our special day even more special with great music and lasting memories. Thanks Jack (and the trio)!

Jack Garrett and his band were an absolutely wonderful part of our wedding. Jack went above and beyond the usual services of a DJ/band leader. He drove out to my family's home twice before our wedding, and was meticulous about organizing our reception (i.e. announcing the bridal party/bride & groom into the reception, finalizing our song list, choosing our first dance song, etc.). Jack won't only serve as your DJ/band leader, but also as your wedding planner!

And the music was FABULOUS. We had countless compliments throughout the night from guests. Their instruments and Jack's vocals sounded even better than on CD. The live music was definitely one of the best parts of our wedding. I would highly recommend Jack & his band to any other bride!

I cannot say enough about Jack Garrett & his crew!! We had a hard time figuring out what to do when we first booked our morning wedding and our afternoon reception music. We weren't sure if our guests would appreciate the traditional hokey "DJ" but we didn't want just a boring little trio playing background music. Jack made our reception a success!! He offered all the wonderful Jazz standards that my husband and I love so much but yet we had the ability to use the DJ for our current pop guilty pleasures! He even learned a new song for our first dance (Frank Sinatra's "Love is Here to Stay", perfect! It was the trio's first time playing it together, and it was PERFECT!!). All of our guests had an amazing time at the reception! Jack also provided as the "MC" so neither my husband or I were stressed about what came next and the flow of the reception. He was so professional! He met with us about 3 times to talk about our vision for the day, our fav. songs (and the "no-plays") and the order of dances, cutting the cake and special dances to include. He really cared about getting to know us and cared about giving us the reception of our dreams. He is very professional, flexible and very knowledgable about "what works". I think it was a little strange for him to host the "afternoon reception" but I can only imagine what he can do for a nighttime extravaganza! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

One of the reasons we choose him was because I wanted a live band and my husband wanted a DJ to make sure all our guests were dancing and having a good time. Jack Garrett provides both a live band and DJ equipment that he uses together. The night flowed so well and everyone had a great time. He appealed to our older crowd and our friends in their 20’s. Jack really worked the crowd and got everyone involved during dinner. Jack and his trio sounded fantastic and we are so glad we went with them.

Jack Garrett Productions is the complete package. From the beginning we needed someone dedicated and experienced. We were married at the Contemporary Arts Center, using 2 floors for the whole night. Jack came up with a plan to work between the 2 floors flawlessly. He wirelessly worked the upstairs with a DJ-type setup, and used the downstairs space for the band. It was perfect! He met with us not once, but three times, to discuss music, see the spaces, and nail down the details. he was also extremely involved through email. I can't speak enough good things about his dedication to making your wedding successful.

He listened to our ideas and made sure our wedding would represent us. Jack acted as coordinator, emcee, singer/bandleader, pretty much everything! He entertained with ease and my guests really enjoyed the live music, as well as being able to hear their favorites with the DJ. We used a lot of our favorite music for the dinner and ceremony, which he, again, really listened to our ideas. From the beginning to the end, Jack was involved, caring, and dedicated to making sure our big night went smoothly so we could enjoy it. I cannot say enough great things about Jack. BOOK HIM NOW. You will never grow tired of the positive feedback you get from having Jack involved in your wedding.

Jack Garrett and the Syndicate were awesome! We had 2 musicians perform during the cocktail hour and a 10-piece band with 3 singers for the reception. Jack deejayed during band breaks. We met with Jack twice before the wedding to go over song selections and our vision of the evening. The music at the wedding was great and helped set the tone for the evening - a classic, elegant affair. One minor issue was that it seemed like there were more breaks in music sets than I had anticipated. That said, the band kept people on the dance floor all night and is a great deal!
