Special Productions, Inc.
Special Blend was a huge success at our wedding. People of all ages were on the dance floor, in fact my 85 yr old grandma couldn\'t get enough dancing. The agency, John and Darla, were amzaing. We could not have been more pleased. We received many requests for the bands contact information. I hope to see them again in the future (as a guest).
Did an AMAZiING job! Played a wide range of music and kept the guests on the dance floor the entire time! Willing to learn new/requested songs, very friendly, and very professional. Would recommend to anyone who wants to throw a good party/wedding!
Brooke was our piano player at our ceremony on New Year's Eve. He was awesome. It was sort of last minute for us & we didn't even finalize all of the songs until the day before the wedding. He worked with me on everything, accommodating exactly what I wanted, which included some unique songs.
Special Productions was really easy to work with as well & I wish I had even looked into getting my DJ from them.
I highly highly highly recommend Brad Wagner (http://www.bradwagner.net/). Not only was it a pleasure to work with Brad on selecting the reception play list - I mean what a nice guy! - he and his band were amazing! Brad and his band played classy yet upbeat songs that absolutely set the tone of the night. I'm not usually one to be at a loss for words but I truly can't say enough about Brad.
FUN TO WORK WITH
VERY KIND AND VERY PROFESSIONAL
We were very pleased and happy with there services. The DJ's were great, they did an exceptional job. The dance floor was never empty and everyone had such a great time. Mary who took the pictures throughout the day did such a great job and was able to capture wonderful candid pictures throughout the night
You guys were amazing! Everyone had an awesome time and you guys were so sweet to us!

We can not say enough for Special Productions and Darla , they are amazing! We were so lucky to have booked Special Request along with their DJ Larry. Our night would not have been the same without them. Old, and young, American and Germans all bonded on the dance floor because of this amazing team. We keep getting compliments on our choice of music! They even learned a special song for us, for our first dance! We all had a great time!

You guys were awesome! We got nothing but wonderful compliments about the band! Thank you for making our day that much more special.
Special Productions is what made our wedding reception! They were such a blast and everyone commented on how much fun they were. I would advise anyone who is looking for a band to book Special Productions!
Special Request was great; all of our guests raved about the band; they learned a new song for our first dance and did great with it.
Special Productions is the booking agent that handled the contract with our band SPECIAL BLEND. Just a note on the booking agent....very professional and easy to work with.
Now onto the band.....amazing! Tim the spokeperson and (great drummer) wanted everything to be perfect for us.
He worked with me and made sure the delivery of the evening went as planned. They learned a special song for my daughter and her new husband (there first dance together as husband and wife).
I bought out all but one break....best decision I could have made. The energy that evening was incredible. All I can say is what great voices and great sound!!!!
Everyone was up dancing.
I was so pleased!!!!!!
Without a great band where does the room get its energy or better yet keep the energy?
It was humid that evening and hot but SPECIAL BLEND moved from one song to the next without a pause.
Great band, great experience.
Special Blend delivered a terrific show - we've still getting terrific comments about how everyone loved them. I can't imagine what else you can strive for.
We'll continue to tell people who you are. Your website was very helpful for our out-of-town bride and groom. They auditioned you from out of the area.
Thank you so much for the lively entertainment. The guests loved your mix of music - evident by the packed dance floor! You left them wanting more at midnight. It was a super evening - everything the bride and groom wanted.

Brandon and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful performance by Special Event at our wedding on July 12th. Music at our wedding reception was an extremely important part of the event for us and your band surpassed all of our expectations. The band did an outstanding job of keeping the guests on the dance floor, not just towards the end of the night, but the entire evening, which is exactly what we wanted. We have received so many comments from guests, such as "That band was AWESOME! How did you find them?", etc. We are very appreciative of the time and effort you put into this event to help make the night as special as it was for us.
Please feel free to use us as a reference for potential clients in the future. You are welcome to post this note also.
Thanks for everything.
Kris and Brandon
Dear John, Darla & Special Request,
We wanted to thank you again for putting on such an incredible show at our wedding on May 31st! It was the best day of our lives and you guys were amazing! We told you what was important to us was to have a great party and get people dancing. You played with energy and enthusiasm through the night. Everyone we have spoken with raved about the music selection and the quality. We loved singing along with you to "New York, New York" at the end of the night.
On a more sentimental note, we appreciate so much that you learned "Making Memories of Us" and "I Loved Her First". Both of these songs meant alot to us.
You guys were everything we could have hoped for on our wedding day and SO MUCH MORE.
All our love,
Sam and Jennifer
WOW! From the moment we booked Special Request a year ago until the last note played at our daughter Danielle's wedding on Saturday, your group was a dream to work with.
You all treated us with the utmost respect, kindness and understanding. We had some "special requests" and you live up to your name. Never could I imagine how you would be able to blend the Klezmer musicians with your own.
Everyone has been calling and raving about the band. It was so much fun having you be a part of our celebration!
Thank you again for everything. You are all the best!
Nanci and Earl
Thank you all for helping to make our reception one of the most elegant, memorable and personally reflective of as a couple. Our guests were delighted by the entertainment, which is precisely what we hoped for that night. Your talents and ability to gauge our desire exceeded our vision for the event.
From start to finish, our experience with Special Productions was outstanding. the Tommy Scott Quartet helped to set and carry out exactly the feeling we wanted at our reception. Tommy's ability to gauge the progression of events throughout the evening helped to make the night on of the most elegant, and memorable receptions many guests said they've experienced. For us, we'll remain grateful for Tommy & the group for helping to make our night perfect."
"... the trumpets did a tremendous job, and we're still hearing the praise about the music. I have the fanfare memorized and I'll never forget the great feeling hearing it before I walked down the aisle. Thank you for making my dreams come true. Your professionalism, kindness, and goodwill will never be forgotten."
Tim, I just wanted to thank you for making the most perfect evening even more perfect. You and Special Blend were unbelievable. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, just raved and raved about the music. If you ever need a reference or referral, please feel free to give my name and number. I just can't say enough. You were all fantastic and you'll never know how much I appreciate what you did for us Sunday night. Thank you again, and again, and again, and again. -Shirley Snyter Mother of the Bride
Tim from The Kentland String Ensemble could not have been more professional yet very personable. He took the time to understand my specific musical selections, procured music he didn't have and offered very helpful suggestions for our special day!
If the Kentland String Ensemble are any indication of the caliber of performers you represent, retention of customers is a given.
Scott and the other band members were just great. Our dance floor was full the entire evening. Their interaction with the crowd and choice of music was wonderful. We were very pleased with Special Event's performance. Scott did a great job with the wedding introductions. All of our guests enjoyed the music as evidenced by the packed dance floor. Many people commented about the band and were very impressed. They interacted with our guests and did a great job playing music which kept our guests on the dance floor. Their performance was above and beyond our expectations. I am so pleased that I hired them and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They made our reception a memorable evening for Lauren and Eric, our guests and family. If I ever have the need to hire a band again, I wouldn't hesitate to call you. We were at a wedding this past week-end and they had a band; they could not compare with Special Event.. All of our guests commented on how good they were. Sincerely, Debbie Steel Mother of the Bride
Dear Darla and John, We wanted to thank you and the rest of Special Request for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding! We had the best time and you helped contribute to the amazing evening. First of all, the band did a great job learning the music for our first dance. Although we could not find any sheet music for the song, you went above and beyond to learn the song by listening to it. We really appreciated the extra effort. You sounded amazing and it was exactly what he hoped for! Thank you for making it happen! You also performed the traditional Jewish songs perfectly with an unbelievable amount of energy. As we requested, the Jewish dancing lasted for quite a long time. You never seemed to tire! It was great. That actually goes for the entire evening. You all had so much energy and sounded so incredible. Everyone was raving about how great you sounded and how much fun you seemed to be having! Finally, thank you both for being so flexible and easy to work with during the whole wedding planning process. You are both true professionals. We were confident that once you were onboard for the wedding, that we never had to worry about this main part of the evening again. We were right. Thanks for helping make everything run so smoothly! Thank you so much! Jon and Danielle Eisenberg
