The Buzzcatz are a nine piece band with versatile male and female vocalists and a smokin' horn section that can ignite a party anywhere with a danceable mix of American Songbook Standards, Jazz, Motown, & Rock N Roll. We are proud to be found at the top of the vendor lists of the most prestigious resorts and private clubs in the U.S.A. The Buzzcatz were named "Best Reception Band" in THE KNOT magazine's BEST OF edition, and also named "Editors Choice" by BRIDES magazine's Southern California edition. The "Nine Lives" tour has included stops at some of the swankiest venues in the country, including the Governor Of Florida's wedding and a command performance for The President Of The United States.

Our presentation is a nostalgic, formal appearance of a supper club orchestra from the glamourous and romantic 50's & 60's. Musically, we deliver the biggest dance hits from the past 50 years, just the way you remember hearing them. We come fully self contained with sound and lighting, and we provide deejay music on the band's breaks to insure that the dance floor stays packed all night long with a great mix of classic and modern music. Our lead vocalist also acts as emcee in a style that is a hit with young and old alike. We are fully insured and we've never cancelled a gig.

We have played at around 700 weddings in the past decade or so, along with many other private events, fundraisers, conventions, and festivals. Most of our gigs come from repeat customers or people who have seen us perform at another event. If you'd like to have references or testimonials, please ask any wedding vendor or upscale venue in the Central Florida or Southern Cal area about us, and then visit our website to read testimonials from our clients. We are also happy to refer you to some of our past clients. Our reputation for bringing a first class, professional act to the stage precedes us. Please read our reviews here. You can rest assured that you are about to book one of the best and most experienced party bands in the country, and that your party is in good hands.

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!

The Buzzcatz were absolutely phenomenal in every way! Ricky was a pleasure to work with from the first meeting and during each and every interaction following. He was professional, courteous and quickly responsive to all questions and needs. He was a great emcee throughout the evening and his musicians were fantastic. Ricky and the Buzzcatz absolutely nailed our first dance song; it was something that we will never forget! Worth noting is that the band members appeared to thoroughly enjoy performing at our wedding; we have pictures of their many smiles throughout the evening. Our guests continue to comment on the quality of the entertainment and how much fun they had. One guest commented that the Buzzcatz will be a must-have at her wedding. We could not recommend them more highly and will likely work with them again as, between us, we have 5 young-adult children.

Hands down, best band around. They are incredibly talented and amazing entertainers. There was not one person that didn't get out on the dance floor for our wedding. Every guest I spoke with just raved about how good they were. There literally was not one guest that didn't comment about them. They are worth every penny. Hire them...I assure you it will be the best decision you make for your wedding. I want to plan another party just to hire them again!

Ricky and his band were beyond wonderful! My guests are still talking about how great the band was at our wedding. The entire process from contract to day of were handled with great professionalism.

Most notably, Ricky was extremely responsive in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding. I asked for a couple of special favors. First, a track of our first dance song so we could practice beforehand, which he provided. And an even bigger favor, a special mash-up father daughter dance to Unforgettable (with some lyric modifications) and Old Time Rock and Roll. He was able to demo a quick track for us to practice with and did a flawless job the day-of.

What's more, our wedding was held at an outdoor venue and it started to rain during our first dance and continued through the two parent dances--this didn't phase Ricky or his team at all. They powered through giving a wonderful performance and a great memory for us all.

I am so appreciative of the bands services and would be quick to recommend them or use them again should I ever plan another amazing party! Thank you, thank you!

the buzzcatz are the finest wedding band i've ever seen.
i was a 65 year old father of a bride in her early 30's. i had nothing to do with booking the band. my daughter and her husband had attended a wedding a few years back at which the buzzcatz performed. after my daughter accepted her boyfriend's proposal, while i think my wife and i were the first people contacted, ricky, the leader of the buzzcatz ,was contacted shortly thereafter, long before any of the venues were arranged and even the date finalized.
in addition to the usual need to play music and accomodate both an aging group of baby boomers, as well as young people used to dancing the evening away, he had to deal with two probably somewhat unique requests from the father of the bride. first, i couldn't possibly have gotten through a traditional father/daughter dance song ("i loved her first" or something like that). instead i needed something that would mean something to both me and my daughter. and it had to be by the great irish poet, bruce springsteen. ricky sent me a copy of an acoustic version of "thunder road" he had recorded and we were done. so my daughter and i shared a dance to a song she pretty much heard every day from the day she was born until the day she went off to college. while both she and i kept it together, several of my closest friend teared up.
second, the wedding was march 16 and i'm 100% irish. i so noted in my father of the bride toast and deemed the relevant locale for the toast to be ireland where all my father was from and where it was already st. patrick's day. so a round of jameson's was served to all and the buzzcatz played "when irish eyes are smiling," it was wonderful.
so i've talked about my idiosyncrasies and not enough about the buzzcatz. quite simply they were great. they have an extensive song list and are tremendous musicians. and everyone at the reception so remarked.

We LOVED this the Buzzcatz - they were truly a pleasure to work with from the first moment we reached out to them. They had played our friends' wedding about five years earlier and as soon as we walked into our friends' reception and heard them, we said hands down, when we're planning our wedding we want them! The music totally set the tone for our wedding - it was formal (they wear tuxedos) and fun (EVERYONE was on the dance floor). They played a wide range of music (from Sinatra to Motown all the way up to current pop music) and did a great job with every genre.

A close friend of mine advised us that "you have to get a band". We took that advice and not only got a band, but "THE BAND".

Ricky and the Buzzcatz were a joy to work with from start to finish. We loved the music and impeccable "MC" skills that Ricky added to our celebration. Both MOB and FOB were 200% thrilled with their performance. Our guests were drawn to the dance floor from start to finish.

All of our vendors commented on the their ease to work with such a talented group of band members.

Ricky Sylvia was an absolute delight to work with! In the days, weeks and months leading up to the wedding, he answered any and all questions I had with a prompt, warm and professional response. My husband and I had several specific requests for our reception and Ricky continually assured us both that everything would be taken care of.

Not only is Ricky wonderful to work with, he's also an amazing talent!! As is the rest of the band! The music they provided for our reception was top-notch and ALL our guests raved about how much they loved it! We still have people telling us how much they loved the band that day!

Thanks so much, Ricky Sylvia and the Buzzcatz! You made our wedding reception wonderfully fun and simply perfect!!

The Buzzcatz were absolutely phenomenal at our daughter's wedding. They truly made a special evening memorable. Ricky was a pleasure - flexible, friendly, professional and all about helping us have one helluva party. We were thrilled! Get 'em if you can.

This band will make your reception a true party! Their play list is classy and fun. Our guests were dancing all night long! My dad even offered to pay them more money to play longer because everyone was having such an amazing time!

I was so very lucky. I heard the Buzzcatz at a friend's wedding, well before my daughter was even engaged. That same night, I said to my husband, "This is the band we must have someday at her wedding"....and we did.
Fast forward to the most wonderful night of our lives: The Buzzcatz brought their vocal and musical talent to the wedding reception and our guests up and onto the dance floor!!
Ricky has an amazing voice and brings classic vintage favorites back to life. His repertoire appeals to all ages, which makes such a difference at a wedding and gets everyone out of their seats.
Because they are so popular, booking the Buzzcatz was the very first thing I did after my daughter's engagement was announced! Working together with Ricky was such a pleasure. He is the nicest guy ever and so professional. He was patient and accommodating with all of our personal requests. He even worked with us to flawlessly pull off the SURPRISE Father Daughter breakout dance that had our crowd going crazy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzohB9E1BSw&feature=youtu.be
Thanks to the Buzzcatz for a magical night of music and dance that we will never forget!

The Buzzcats were a delight to work with, very knowledgable and professional, and willing to learn a few special numbers to enhance their extensive musical repertoire. It was their goal to provide outstanding entertainment and they exceeded our expectations. The party was a true celebration and the photos reveal the excitement and joy that the entire guestlist, but especially the bride and groom, felt throughout the entire evening.

The Buzzcatz were amazing!!! I don't think we could have found a better band for our wedding!! They were worth spending a little more!! Once they started playing everyone was up and dancing and we extended them an extra hour because our guests were having such a great time! My husband and I were still getting compliments a few months after the wedding! I would recommend them to all my friends!!

My daughter's reception was so much fun. We had two musicians from the BuzzCatz perform at her ceremony. At the reception we had the 8 piece band with Dana as lead singer. Ricky showed up for a bit as a wonderful surprise as he was in town. The BuzzCatz kept the dance floor full ALL evening long! They are amazing and worth every penny!

Fabulous! Best comments: Why in the world do we think we have to go to Atlanta to get a good band? Never danced so much at a wedding. Great soloists. Who knew Elvis was invited. Fabulous cocktail hour music. Great trumpet player for entrance of the Bride (Trumpet Voluntary). Played Bride and Grooms play list to perfection. Music for all ages. Flexible up to the last minute. I could go on and on..... These musicians deserve a solid TEN out of the above 5.0 scale.
Many, many thanks!!!

Not only were they QUICK to respond to my husband's and my emails, they were helpful and friendly through the whole process. They were a little out of our price range, but they were WORTH every penny and I would have them again in a second. They learned to play our first dance LIVE and they brought a second singer FREE of charge because "it wouldn't sound good without a woman vocalist" they said. They rocked the night away, and all the guests were on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. Seriously, we have no pictures with our guests in their chairs! They were professional, timely, and just PERFECT. People still comment on how amazing our wedding was- and they ALWAYS mention how great the band was! Thank you so much Ricky and The BuzzCatz for making our wedding so perfect!!! Sincerely, Tyler and Lauren Rockey

Ricky & Carmen lead singers did an amazing job and are so easy to work with! Everyone is still talking about the roaring good time we had on a Sunday afternoon and the band was the icing on the cake!! You will not go wrong by hiring the buzzcatz! Thanks again!

Having live music at our wedding reception was our number one priority. Our wedding planner Brittany from Tickled Pink Brides suggested Ricky and the Buzz Catz for our November wedding at The Gaylord Palms. We listen to their demo and booked them. I loved their sound and thought they'd be great. Little did I know they would be exceptional. The Buzz Catz made our reception. They had a perfect read on the crowd and kept the dance floor packed all night. I remember several times when I stopped dancing, wanting to go mingle with guests, only to realize EVERYONE was on the dance floor (even my husband's 95 year old grandma). Ricky was pure class -- nothing about the music choices, the commentary or flow of the night felt cheesy. Throughout the planning process I only chatted with Ricky via email and he was always promt, thorough and everything about the execution at our event was spot on. Their song list is deep and is perfect for setting a fun, party atmosphere that is still refined and elegant. I've already been plotting a five year anniversary party just to have an excuse to dance to their magnificent sound again! Cannot recommend them enough.

Ricky and the Buzzcatz is the BEST band in Orlando! When I got engaged everyone that I talked to raved about the Buzzcatz and told us “you have to book them!” So, I did research and absolutely feel in love with them, and we are so glad that we spent the money to have them at our wedding. We had a large wedding with a variety of ages and EVERYONE was on the dance floor, dancing the night away. If you are considering the Buzzcatz but think they are expensive, find a way in your budget to cut back somewhere else and book the Buzzcatz. They are sooooooo WORTH it!!!! Not to mention that Ricky is so easy to work with and knows exactly how to work the crowd. If I ever have a large party where I need a band I will use the Buzzcatz again!

This was the best part of my entire wedding! I over 400 guests at my wedding and no one was EVER sitting. They kept it going all night long! It has been over a year now and I STILL have people coming up to me asking about my band! Since my wedding three friends have booked the BuzzCatz. I have heard several bands, but they have it going on it! I would not choose any other band! They truly are amazing! Not only is their music fantastic, but their display is so classy! Love them!

The Buzzcatz totally made my reception!!! I have been married 6 months and of all of the things at my wedding reception that I spent so much time, energy and money on, the only thing anyone remembers is how amazing the band was. Ricky and his crew were so entertaining and so very talented. They stayed in touch with me, were completely professional, played music I requested, learned songs that we wanted, and accomodated every request. Ricky did the most amazing Louie Armstrong I have ever heard, and is a true entertainer. Best of all - they kept my dance floor packed and kept the bride and groom very happy.

The Buzzcatz responded with the following comments:

Just a note to wedding wire: I don't get the "Value" rating. Value is something you can't put a price on. Let's not confuse the two. No, we're not the cheapest act out there, but let's ask any of the brides above who were kind enough to review The Buzzcatz, and my bet is that they will all tell you that what we did for their wedding was INvaluable.
