CONGRATULATIONS on your recent engagement!
THANK YOU for your interest in THE BUZZCATZ. I am Ricky Sylvia, the band’s leader and lead vocalist, and I am proud to lead The Buzzcatz band in Orando, Florida. I’ve been a professional bandleader since I was 10 years old, and in recent years the majority of our gigs are weddings and fundraiser events. The Buzzcatz and I have performed at somewhere around 700 wedding receptions since 2001. We know how overwhelming and challenging it can be to select your vendors, especially your entertainment or band, which will be the “front line” in the image and tone of your reception. Here’s what you can expect from us: We are a tight-knit group of guys who have been playing together for many years. Our visual presentation is that of a tuxedo’d supper club orchestra, complete with retro looking music stands - but don’t let our formal appearance fool you - this is not your Grandpa’s “big band”! This group plays a high-octane mixture of the hottest hits from the past 50 years mixed with today’s hits to make a non-stop dance party. Our set list begins with classic love songs from the American Songbook including Sinatra, Harrry Connick Jr., Bobby Darin, and Michael Buble through the dinner hour. After dinner, we crank up the dance set that includes a great mix of Motown, Disco, Classic Rock, and today’s top 40 dance-floor hits. Our break music covers any of your favorites that are not found on our list, and it’s mixed deejay style for a seamless dance party. My style as Emcee is “less is more” and we keep all announcements and song selections classy, clean, and family friendly. Maintaining the quality of presentation that The Buzzcatz have become known for is my number one goal as bandleader of what many of our venues and clients consider to be one of the best “wedding bands” in the USA. Our extensive list of references includes Florida and Southern California’s most exclusive resorts and private clubs. We know how important this night is to our clients, and take great pride in knowing that many years from now they are going to be looking through their wedding album, point to a picture of the band, and say “The Buzzcatz ROCKED our wedding!” We look forward to being a part of this exciting time in your life, and we will see you on the dance floor! - Ricky

What can I NOT say about Ricky Sylvia and the BUZZCATZ from our wedding on 7/20/15 in St. Petersburg, FL!?! I dont think I have ever been to a wedding where a dance circle started BEFORE the salad's were even plated. From the ability for Ricky to MC to learning very obscure requests for first dance song's; "The Last Farewell" by Roger Whittaker for Mother/Son Dance......NAILED IT!!

Ricky was readily available through text/email/phone leading up to the wedding. After Natalie and I were lucky enough to; preview the BUZZCATZ at a private event prior to our wedding, speaking with Ricky, and the comfort level we had with him, gave them "carte blanche" on the playlist and asked him to adapt to the audience as things started going. The transitions were wonderful, and breaks were taken at opportune times. Speaking of breaks, I'm not sure how much time Ricky and the group were able to enjoy their break(s), as it seemed like guests were fawning over them, which they were more than happy to oblige with open dialogue(s).

The entire experience was complete class from the bands attire, the staging, the music, and most importantly the showmanship. This was Natalie's and my vision and couldnt have dreamed of a better experience than with the Buzzcatz.

We hope that there are opportunities to see the BUZZCATZ once again at public event(s) when available, if not we may have to bring them back around for a second go next year on our anniversary!!

Where do I even start?! The Buzzcatz were absolutely amazing at our recent wedding (4/25/15)!! When my now husband and I were originally starting to look into music -- we knew we really wanted a band at our wedding. A good friend of mine told me she had just heard the Buzzcatz at a wedding and that no one wanted to stop dancing! So I went ahead and contacted the leader of the band, Ricky Sylvia. Ricky was so wonderful to work with from the very start. He promptly replied to my email and made everything so easy. As the wedding date got closer -- Ricky even met with me and my fiance one evening for more than an hour to discuss song choices and other details (and this is in spite of his busy schedule!) He and his band learned our first dance song with no questions asked and it turned out beautifully! Ricky will act as the MC for the night if you want him to -- and of course, he also does a great job with this! He is funny and keeps the guests entertained. Our guests RAVED about how amazing the Buzzcatz were and the dance floor was packed the entire night! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the Buzzcatz for anyone's upcoming wedding!! They went above and beyond what I expected!!

My wife and I were introduced to The Buzzcatz by our wedding planner. Their promotional material perfectly matched the vibe we were trying to achieve for our wedding. So the decision to hire them was easy. We expected them to be great, but we had no idea the extent of their excellence until we got on the phone with Ricky, their band leader for the first time. He was incredibly accommodating and cooperative. He even gave us pointers on how to make the party even more exciting. Not to mention, he was an all around cool guy, which is definitely a plus. Then our wedding day came. It's hard to put in to words how wonderful the band truly was. I've never been to a wedding in which the dance floor was full at all times. The Buzzcatz were firing on all cylinders. Our guests kept coming up to us and saying how awesome the band was, which made us even happier. What really made the evening is how they handled our first dance. We gave them a pretty obscure song and what we got back was an exact reproduction of the song that helped my wife and I fall in love. We couldn't have been happier. The talent and care that The Buzzcatz put into our wedding couldn't be matched. They truly made our wedding reception, the perfect party. Ricky and the band are friends for life, and that can't be stressed enough.

The Buzzcatz were the best part of our wedding. Literally had the guests out on the dance floor all night from the 2nd song (after the 1st dance). All anyone can talk about is how amazing our band was and how could we have that band at our next function!! Can't say enough about how fantastic Ricky and the band were.

By far the BEST wedding band ever!

Hiring the Buzzcatz was one of the first decisions we made when we got engaged… we knew the band just not the location yet! We were recommended to them through family friends and weddings my parents have attended over the years. Ricky was more than helpful throughout the planning process with all of my questions!

We hired the full band and the dance floor was packed the ENTIRE night, which is exactly what my husband and I wanted! They played both modern and old school music which was perfect for us and our attendees. Ricky acted as an emcee for all the important events which was a huge help as well!

If you want to have a blast and dance the night away at your wedding book the Buzzcatz!
