A few recent emails from clients:

"Just wanted to thank you for an excellent show.  We have continued to receive compliments on our band choice from young and old in attendance. Thanks for a great time." ~Joe Crockett

"The Bruce Swartz band was great! Bruce and I talked several times before the wedding to go over final details, they had a few surprises for us which were awesome and during the wedding everyone loved them! eather and I could not be happier with their style, performance and interaction with us and our guests. I would recommend them to anyone." ~Tom and Heather Forneris

"Thank you so much for everything. Our honorees, Hugh and Louise, and many of the guests last Sunday are still buzzing about how nice the party was and how wonderful the band sounded.
The pianist sounded great during the cocktail hour. Bruce is a professional, natural and wonderful MC. His announcements through the evening were perfect...Even when the schedule changed on him. The band was very flexible and “went with the flow” of things as our timeline kept shifting.
Thanks to the “extra” musicians who came out to accompany the pianist during the dinner hour. It was a very nice addition. Weren’t you supposed to be eating, relaxing, etc. during that time? Nonetheless your presence was noticed and appreciated.
The entire band sounded fantastic. We received so many compliments about the music. I even witnessed many of the guests approaching the band personally with accolades about their playing, their selections, singing, etc.
Most importantly, Hugh and Louise had a great time. Did you see them dancing with big smiles on their faces to their requested song, “Leroy Brown?“ They never had a wedding reception so this was the one they never had - 50 years later - and it was great! You'll never know how important the Bruce Swartz Group was in making this milestone occasion so special. We very much appreciate all you did for us last Sunday night.
Bringing such joy into peoples’ lives must be an awesome feeling. We just thought that we should let you know: You guys are amazing!! Thanks again!" ~Linda Owens
