We had a great experience with Ken Battista and the band! Ken was responsive throughout the entire process and even learned our first dance song so he could perform it the day of (and did a fabulous job). The band kept the dance floor crowded the entire night and played a great mix of music! Wedding guests are still coming up to us and telling us how awesome the band was!

Despite the large reception area Ken and his band filled the room with quality sound the entire evening. They had everyone up dancing from my 7 year old niece to my 85 year old aunt. I had several guests compliment me on the music and how great the band sounded. The song selection was fabulous and thbananas memberwears so talented; My husband and I could not have been more delighted with our choice and would recommend Ken and his band to anyone. Thanks for making our daughter's wedding even more wonderful.

Our venue was small, so we were very concerned about the band being too loud and making it impossible for the guests to talk at their tables. The Ken Battista band was PERFECT. We expressed our concerns to them, and the volume level was exactly where it needed to be. When you book a band from a web site, you really don't know what to expect. A band makes or breaks your event. The Ken Battista band MADE our son's wedding an absolutely phenomenal evening. We could not be happier and sincerely want to thank each and every member of the KEN BATTISTA Band. You ROCK!

If you don't hire the Ken Battista band for your wedding, you are missing out. I had read glowing reviews before booking this band and thought, "Can they really be that good?!" And they were! They had our guests dancing the entire time, played all of our requests and had an amazing range of songs from Motown to Pink. They can play it all. My guests all raved about the music. Before the wedding, Ken was extremely responsive and throughout the night, made sure we were happy with the music selections. It is no surprise they are voted one of the hottest bands in Phila.

The Ken Battista band was the best choice for my wedding! Ken was very professional, responsive to all of my emails and Anna's voice is incredible! They were also very accomodating and flexible with my play list suggestions. The wedding went on until 1:30am and the band rocked it the entire time! My entire wedding was on the dance floor up until the very last song played. "Don't Stop Believing" will always be an amazing memory of my perfect wedding night!!

This band is absolutely awesome!!!! I strongly recommend having them play at anyone's wedding. They are professional, excellent, and their music gets everyone up and dancing. If you truly want to enhance your wedding, then BOOK them today.... You won't be disappointed....I had them play at my children's high school graduation parties, and then talked my son into playing at his wedding. He was at first skeptical, but soon realized that they were the right pick for their wedding. He wasn't disappointed. The crowd ranged from twenty somethings to seventy somethings in age, and everyone was up and dancing the night away. They over-exceeded even our expectations. You won't be disappointed!!! It's a no brainer!! If you want a wedding with fabulous, flawless and upbeat music, then get Ken's band.......

I can't possibly say enough about how wonderful the Ken Battista Band is! They did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding.

Book the Ken Battista band for your wedding!!!!!! I came across their wedding wire review one night after coming back from another band preview. I knew the other band just wasn't the one and after reading the Ken Battista band reviews I had a feeling I had found the one!

Ken could not have been more responsive throughout the entire process. I work in account services at an ad agency and I don't even respond to my client's emails as quickly as Ken did ;)

My husband and I booked them immediately after checking the band out at a local bar. We heard them play, heard Anna sing and again we just knew they were it.

At our wedding,Ken did a fantastic job emceeing, and the band had people dancing and having SO MUCH FUN. I told Ken ahead of time that I was really hoping for a great dance party. He said "not to worry, no need to share a play list, we got this" and I literally didn't give them a single request other than our wedding song and father/mother of the bride/groom songs. I danced my heart out as did all of our guests. Ken and Anna even welcomed my friend up on stage when she requested to sing Living on a Prayer. The pictures that Anna took of this from the stage are priceless. So many people complimented us on the band and people are still asking for Ken's name to refer to other friends who are planning weddings.

Ken makes this so easy--honestly 100% stress free because this band is incredibly talented, they are professional and it couldn't have been easier to book and coordinate with Ken, and they gave us the exact dance party we had hoped for--I literally just wish the wedding had been 2 hours longer so we'd have more time to enjoy it! I'm hoping to check them out at another local bar again soon to relive the glory of our wedding!

Ken was amazing, more than we ever anticipated, and far exceeded our expectations. We gave Ken a couple very specific songs, and left the rest up to his artistic creativity. He was prompt, professional and personable to our guests. The music created the perfect mood for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We would highly recommend Ken and the Battista band for any occassion from simple to elaborate.

Ken Battista did an outstanding job, all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music, many of our guests asked where did we find you. We truly loved the special saxophone solo's.
Ken was very easy to work with, provided attention to details, and kept our guests dancing. Ken was setup early, and provided the music for our Wedding Cermony and Reception.
Thanks Ken for making our day so special. Everyone had a fantastic time.
We rate you #1 and will certainly recommend you to others.
Your love for music and people are what make you so successful.
Thank You!

From first contact through the last dance at the reception, Ken and the KB Band exceeded our expectations in every regard. Ken has a keen sense of the crowd and was able to keep everything moving at a great pace and the dance floor was always full with dancers of all ages. Many of our guests commented both during and after the event that the KB Band really helped make the reception extra special. I am sure you can pay more for a band for an event like our wedding reception, but you won't find a better band than the KB Band. Real professionals!

Dear Ken,

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job that Ken Battista Band did at our Glasbern Inn wedding on October 2, 2010. So many of our guests asked where we found you; everyone (including Michael and I) were so impressed with the variety of music you played. From Lady Gaga to Frank Sinatra to Van Morrison...You kept the dance floor full all night long and helped to make our wedding reception perfect. We were looking for a smaller band for our 85 person reception, and we are so glad that we found you! Glasbern told us that you were the best and most fun wedding band they have ever had play there. We will certainly recommend you to others. Please pass along our appreciation to the rest of the band. Thanks Again!

Sincerely, Lisa Held and Michael McIlhinney
