Paradise Alley more than completed our wedding!! They got the party started right away and continued it to the very end of the night. Our schedule for dinner and everything else was pushed back tremendously because people could NOT stop dancing. Their interaction with the crowd, fun outgoing personalities, and awesome set list made our wedding one big party!!! After they were finished they even stayed to hang out and talk with my husband and I, our family, and friends!! Everyone agreed they were the most down to earth people and I know they were a complete pleasure to deal
With from day one. Defiantly worth every dime plus more!!!!

Paradise Alley made out wedding everything and more. Joel was easy to talk to and put us at ease no matter what was going on. He was quick to answer questions and the band had no problem learning any special songs we wanted for the wedding. From the beginning they were amazing to work with. Everyone at our wedding raved about them all night from their ability to play any song to the female vocalists spectacular voice. Someone even said to us they wanted to throw a party just to have the band play. The whole night was a great experience.

"What more can I say but “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!” I cannot even explain to you all how you made our wedding reception so special and memorable! This will be a party that we will NEVER EVER forget!! Mike and I had an incredible time!!! YOU ALL ROCKED!!! You were amazing at NHP Inn but, you went above and beyond the night of our wedding!! (Not that I expected any less because even in the small bar you kept the crowed moving and involved!!) Thank you for learning the songs we requested and being so flexible. Thank you for letting our photographer sing our first song with you and as well as the mother/ son dance. It was so cool to sing on the stage with him. Never in my life did I think I would be singing at my own wedding!! The complements that I received about how great you were do not stop coming! So many people said they have never been to a wedding where that many people stayed on the dance floor all night long! One of the best parts was when you put on the box heads!!! My dad really got a kick out of that! Joel, thank you for all that you did in making sure our night went smoothly! From the beginning, you and the other band members made me feel comfortable. You had such a great first impression that I knew my night was in good hands. I’m so happy that I found someone I could trust! All the musicians were professional and fun! Not to mention you all have such amazing voices! You would never know the real artists weren't singing on stage. You had lots of fun, were enthusiastic and in turn that kept our guest entertained and the dance floor packed! Looking back on our wedding reception, I can see all my friends and family dancing and having a great time and there is nothing better than that!!!

I look forward to the next time I can hire Paradise Alley for an event or just for a night of dancing!! If anyone is looking for a band, I will be quick to recommend you!!"

There isn't a song this band can't do! There is no song list you choose from, you name it they play it! We were very lucky to have booked this band for our recent wedding in Connecticut. All our guests were blown away and wanting more when the night was drawing to a close. Any suggestions I threw their way they were more than willing to accomodate. They are truly an amazing band and so easy to work with! If you want a fun, energetic, and memmorable event I highly recommend Paradise Alley. Thank you again for making our night unforgettable you guys and we'll be calling you in the future to play at our next event!

Paradise Alley absolutely rocked our wedding! From our first meeting to our goodbyes at the end of our reception, they were simply terrific in everything from planning, learning our specific song requests, running the reception, and rocking the guests. We have a couple of professional musicians in our family and PA was exuberant about backing our brother-in-law as he sang the rock/soul growler You Can Leave Your Hat On and jamming with another brother-in-law on the Led Zeppelin classic Whole Lotta Love. They were fun, professional, tremendously talented and played everything from Sinatra, to Pink, to Sarah McLachlan, to Black Eyed Peas and so much more. So many guests told us it was the best wedding they'd been to, which sounds ordinary and obligatory until they then raved on and on and on about Paradise Alley. By far - really, truly - the best band you could hope for.

Best,
Lisa

We hired Paradise Alley for our wedding. They were very flexible in arranging music for our ceremony and reception, and delivered everything we asked for with ease. The reception was one big rocking party, and Paradise Alley really set the tone in an awesome way. Our guests commented very positively on the band's performance. We recommend them wholeheartedly, especially if you want to avoid the clubby feel that DJs seems to insist on.
