Chris Cole and the Kahootz Band are OUTSTANDING! My daughter got married on June 7th at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The band was recommended to me and I researched them on-line. The reviews that I read are great however, THE BAND EXCEEDED all expectations. First, Chris is a real professional, flexible and great to deal with. Example, I asked if my Brother-in-law could play the drums for 1 song which was no problem and he did. I asked if Chris could sing a favorite song that I had in mind for the Father/Daughter dance and he agreed. During the planning, I was concerned about the actual song selection... don't be concerned. Chris has an incredible portfolio of songs from current Pop songs, 80's, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, and Frank Sinatra. The diversity of music appeals to everyone... young, middle age, and older. After the event, everyone was commenting on how GREAT the BAND was and they all said it was incredibly fun (one of the best weddings they attended). I highly recommend Chris Cole and the Kathootz Band.

We couldn't be happier we chose Kahootz! We had the best time time at our wedding, and so much of it is thanks to them. They have an incredible range, from classic songs to modern pop and rap, which was perfect for our guests ranging from their 20s to 70s. Regardless of their age, everyone on their feet the entire night! Chris was so friendly and helpful throughout the process. When we realized we hadn't rented the proper AV equipment for our ceremony and toasts (we got married in a non-traditional venue requiring extra AV equipment), he jumped in to help and found us an answer within 24 hours. He also met with us the week before our wedding to talk through the type of event we wanted so he could prep accordingly. We can't say enough great things about the entire band - they were wonderful!

We had the fortune of finding K2 when searching for wedding bands online. We were so impressed with the performances we found on the website that we hired them without the privilege of seeing them live first. When we met with Chris, the manager, prior to our wedding, he was the consummate professional. He accommodated our quirky requests and helped guide us with suggestions when we weren't sure what direction to go in. We would be remiss without pointing out how much he helped us to customize the night so it was a perfect fit for the two of us.

On the wedding night, the band nailed our first dance song, Fly Me To The Moon, and from then on they never let up. Not only did they sound great, but they brought an energy to the night that really pumped up the crowd and had us dancing right up until the lights came on. We had a ton of guests come up to us as we left the building, and at the after-party, telling us how amazing they thought the group was. We want to thank them for making our night unforgettable, and cannot recommend them highly enough. K2, you guys were great!

Choosing Kahootz for our wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made. From the very first introduction to Chris, all the way through to the pre-wedding meeting to the very last song on the actual big day, the entire process was seamless and made the stress of the day itself a non-factor.

In terms of the actual music and performance at our reception, the band was amazing. They played a perfect version of our first dance song, learned a very last minute request, and played a perfect variety of music that matched perfectly to what we loved and had the entire place dancing. It was non-stop great music throughout the entire reception and literally everyone that I've spoken with since has told me how amazing the music was and asked when we’ll be having another party with Kahootz playing!

I can’t recommend this group enough for it's all around professionalism, and would say that if you don’t go with Kahootz for you event, you’re honestly making a major mistake.

Kahootz is amazing!!! They played at my recent wedding and kept the crowd going all night long to rave reviews. So many wedding guests commented that Kahootz is the best wedding band they have ever heard and seen - I agree! Kahootz has great energy and the vocalists came out to the dance floor to dance and sing with the wedding guests. People loved this!

Kahootz was really flexible with some last minute changes to our schedule for that night and they kept the flow of the reception going despite these changes. Chris Cole, the main contact for Kahootz, is wonderful! Our meeting before the wedding with Chris was so helpful in framing the schedule and plan for our reception. Chris had some great ideas and advice at this meeting too. We knew that we could just relax and enjoy because we were in Kahootz's and Chris' most capable hands.

Kahootz is extremely talented, completely professional, and the band members are very nice too! Look no further, Kahootz is the best band out there!! My new husband and I are trying to think of a reason to throw a party just so we can dance again to Kahootz!

I have no words to express how amazing this band is. I am still speechless from an amazing wedding night! My husband went to hear them at a showcase and loved them. We signed up instantly. Throughout the process Chris was great. So easy to work with and he just got us...after 5 minutes in our meeting before the wedding he asked 2 questions and instantly knew what we wanted and what our vibe was. During the day they provided us with ceremony music - keyboard which played traditional Jewish ceremony music - was incredible!! Then there was a jazz trio during cocktail hour and the full band for the party. They read the crowd perfectly. Playing the perfect combination of music. We were told this was the first time at the venue that people were dancing before dinner and they couldn't get them to sit down. It was spectacular. The hora was amazing and everyone joined in. The next 3-4 hours were the best time of our lives and we are so thankful for Chris and the entire band!!! My feet still hurt and I was wearing flats!! Thank you so much!!!

Working with Kahootz was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. From start to finish they were easy to work with, straight forward, responsive, and fun. Most importantly though, they absolutely rocked the night of our wedding. We gave Chris a rough idea of our likes (and a LOT of our dislikes) and he created the perfect set list. The band sounded unbelievable and people of all ages were on the dance floor the whole night. I actually wish we had a recording of their version of our first dance song (by Otis Redding) because I loved it so much. They were also able to work with the hotel to manage the entire reception schedule so myself, my husband, and our families didn't have to worry about a thing.

At the end of the night, our friends were on the floor chanting "one more song". I think that says it all!!

I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about Kahootz! There are so many adjectives I could use to describe how amazing their talent is! Chris was such a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding. His patience, guidance and flexibility are truly one of a kind! As a wedding professional myself, there are few people that live up to my standards and Kahootz is definitely one that surpasses them all! Months later, my family and friends are still raving about Kahootz! I would not hesitate to recommend them personally or professionally!
