We just recently had Velocity play at our wedding in central Wisconsin. They did an incredible job! They were fun and professional and picked great songs that kept everyone on the dance floor ALL night long. We had guests coming up to us all night and the days after about how impressed they were with the music. It made the night. We absolutely recommend them for your next big event!

We had no question we were going to have a band at our wedding. We heard/read nothing but positive things about this band prior to booking them, and I now know the reason why. Preparation was very easy and had a very lengthy list of songs to choose from. We had a surprise appearance with Bucky Badger and they were flexible in playing U. of Wisconsin-Madison songs during that time. They even learned our first dance song which was very neat to hear- All of Me by John Legend. I have heard from many after the wedding that the band was one of the best ones they've heard. The passion and energy was felt by each person. We highly recommend!

Truly 5-star service! At first, the fee sounded high, but as we worked with them and having them we realized that it was worth every penny-- would never consider anything less. Everything was perfect and we had nothing to worry about-- it was all handled flawlessly-- even a couple of little extras we asked for. They have a great variety on their song list-- very handy! Dance floor was packed and those who dd not care to dance were also entertained and enjoyed just listening and watching. We added the solo piano for cocktail hour and a jazz trio for dinner-- simply elegant and perfect. The lighting provided was great and tailored to our wedding colors and the venue. All went as planned and Matt was great with help in the plans.

The North Coast Orchestra did an amazing job at our wedding! All of our family and friends raved about the music they played, their professionlism, and their ability to keep the dance floor packed all night. From the very beginning, we faced a bit of a challenge because we were not in the local area. We were planning our wedding from Colorado, and Matt and his team made it very clear that they would do whatever was necessary to help us. After crashing a few weddings, we decided on NCO, and boy did we make the right choice. Matt was very receptive to the type of music we wanted to hear ('80's baby!) and adjusted to what the crowd wanted to hear. He did a great job acting as the emcee as well. If you are looking for an exciting, professional, and great value band, these guys are your number one choice! NCO rocked the house and we can't thank them enough!

It's quite simple...if you're looking into The North Coast Orchestra you should be booking The North Coast Orchestra! Our guests continually complimented (and still do to this day) how spectacular the band was. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and we (bride&groom) were so happy to see our friends and family having such a wonderful time. We also had dinner and reception music, and I'd highly recommend including that into your wedding plans. The dinner music was classy. The cocktail reception was beautiful with the sounds of the piano playing in the background. The North Coast Orchestra made the best day of our lives be the happiest celebration!

Thank you,
Tom

We have used North Coast Orchestra for both daughters weddings. They are awesome! Very responsive to our needs before the weddings & flexible about what songs they will/won't play. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end during both weddings. The guests couldn't say enough about how great the band was and neither can we! I would have them for another wedding, but I'm out of daughters! Maybe an anniversary?!

NCO and Matt Antoniewicz were great at our wedding. They were super flexible and not only took the time to get to know us, but were nice enough to learn a number of songs for our wedding. Specifically, in addition to learning our first dance and mother/son dance songs, NCO learned a special request song for us... My parents didnt get to have the first dance song they wanted at their wedding and NCO was kind enough to learn the song and give them the first dance they never had, now 35 years later! The band was amazing and kept the dance floor packed!

If you are in search of a wedding band that can play anything from swing and standards through the music of today, this is the band to book! We went with the nine piece band and they were incredible to say the least. ALL of our guests loved them (from age 9 to 90)! When chatting with our guests during the wedding, their first remark was "This band is amazing!". This was very important for us to hear, because we had guests traveling very far distances to celebrate with us.

The band and the manager are professional and flexible. The manager was always very prompt in responding to questions (via call or e-mail), even outside of normal business hours. We had trouble with some of the logistics with our venue site. The band worked hard to accommodate us, showed up extra early, and made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. When we arrived everything was perfect. They were great at gauging the crowd during the whole night to select songs that will keep the dance floor packed. It is so nice to see excellent customer service has not completely gone away.

The band rocked the place!!! When we first booked them we went to listen to them at a church festival and were so impressed that we couldn't wait until they would play at our wedding! They were professional, knew tons of songs, very entertaining and had the crowd going! They also dressed very appropriate for a wedding. I would highly recommend this band to anyone and if I ever had a need for a band such as an anniversary party they are number one!

The North Coast Orchestra performed at my daughter's 10/12/13 wedding. The bride and groom were more into swing mode and oldies, and the band accommodated them without a problem. Provided a lot of fun songs to dance to, and guests remarked how great they were.

They wore tuxedos as I requested, and looked very classy, also -- would definitely use them for a wedding!

My wife and I heard this band at a friend's wedding a couple years back and knew then they were the band I wanted for ours.

North Coast is awesome! All professionals and able to play a wide variety of music from any decade.

Extremely easy and friendly to deal with, very reasonable prices for live music of this quality for an entire evening.

We loved having North Coast Orchestra play our wedding - they absolutely rocked! Our guests danced all night long and all had a blast!

Book them!

I can not say enough about how great Velocity was at our wedding and leading up to the day. We felt very strongly about wanting a band at our wedding, and I did a lot of research to find for the right one and at an affordable price. Velocity was extremely professional, helpful, and responsive. All my guests raved about their performance and quality of singing. Most of the time, you had to double check that they were the ones singing because it sounded just like the original recorded singers! The variety of songs and ranges were phenomenal, and definitely kept our guests dancing all night. They are very reasonably priced, and more than worth the money. I would recommend a band over a DJ any day, and Velocity would certainly be the band to hire.

Just a note on what we had at our wedding:
We got the "Extreme Entertainment Package"
This included: 1 hour solo piano for cocktail hour, 1.5 hours jazz trio for dinner, 7 piece band for 3.5 hours, DJ service during breaks, and uplighting

The band was AWESOME! My husband thought for sure that most of our guests from our small wedding(135) would leave after dinner and that no one would be out dancing to the band, himself included! But guess what?! The dance floor was packed from the first couple songs they played until the very last song! My husband was out there almost the entire night with me! My sister is a singer and even got up and sang one song with them! They had a nice progression from older classic songs to newer ones. Even my Dad was out dancing all night! It was great and if I did the wedding all over again, I would still have North Coast!

Platinum provided the perfect mix of music for our entire wedding day. From Louis Armstrong for the ceremony, to big band and swing favorites for cocktails/dinner to Bruno Mars and more for dancing, we loved Platinum. They were great to work with from the beginning of the planning process right up to the day of the event. I highly recommend using Platinum or other ACA bands for your Madison event! They are worth every penny.

We contracted Northcoast Orchestra for our daughter's wedding held at the Wisconsin Club. The whole process couldn't have gone smoother. The agency was very responsive in providing us with information regarding the cost and services we could expect. They provided us with information on where we could view the band ahead of time. As we got closer to the date, Matt made it easy to work with the band on planning our selections. We had everyone at the wedding wondering where we found the band - everyone figured they came from Chicago! The musicians were very professional and highly skilled. The music selections that were actually played fit right into the mood for the evening. I tend to rate the band based on the number of people still dancing at the end of the evening. I would estimate that 40-50% of our guests were still there on the dance floor til the end. I would highly recommend Northcoast Orchestra to anyone.

After my sister had North Coast Orchestra play at her wedding, it was an easy decision to have them play at mine. They were very easy and great to work with. For both my sister and I, they were willing to learn a song to play for our first dances. They were very flexible to accommodate their set-up schedule so they wouldn't interfere with our cocktail hour in the same room. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, energetic band that will have your guests talking about them anytime they remember your wedding. Both lead singers have wonderful voices and the crowd loved them. Thanks North Coast!

We booked them through ACA entertainment. They were awesome!!!! They were great at communicating before our wedding and took requests during the evening. We had a very eclectic group at our wedding and everyone loved the music. Our wedding reception had a Frank Sinatra undertone and they performed all the Rat Pack songs we loved perfectly. I would highly recommend them for anyone who wants an awesome band at their wedding!
