Lady Forte' offers quality Top Notch Entertainment.

I am able to provide you with first class service in all area's because you deserve it! Myself and my unit are proficient in all styles of music.

I have been in the business for many years and I know what it takes to please the Bride & Groom. I have performed at weddings in Jamaica, Japan, Indiana and California.

I understand the Bride & Groom's (and family) immediate needs and I am sensitive to their special day. I work with Brides & Grooms on a daily basis regarding destination weddings from around the country. I have been very successful because I make sure everything is covered from beginning to end not just on the day of the performance. And the biggest plus of all is that I am always 100% present when holding a conversation.

I offer consultations (in person if possible) and follow up with the Bride & Grooms well in advance leading up to the wedding date. This is an added (no charge) service. This allows the Bride & Groom to concentrate on all other aspects of the wedding and to be very comfortable with the music department. My goal is to make sure the Bride & Groom are "stress free."

Lady Forte' music production was phenomenal!! The guest's were very happy with the song list and the performance.

Lady Forte' spent extra time with me going over particular's months before the wedding and then followed up with me the closer we got to the date. I give her two thumbs up. If you are looking for great singing along with professionalism the Lady is definitely your choice!
