Cathy did a phenomenal job for my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner. She is a great musician and has a wonderful warm personality that added a lot to the festivities.

I have had the pleasure of working with Encore Entertainment the past two years to secure multiple entertainment groups for outdoor drive through events. Not only were we provided with top notch entertainment, but it was done while facing many challenges from a pandemic and University red tape. Thank you, Larry, for being flexible and professional. Much appreciated. Looking forward to the next time we can work together.
Response from the owner: Lori,Thanks to you and your creativity. Some of the options you have suggested were out of the ordinary, but great definitely additions to your event.

We've worked alongside Encore Entertainment for years! Not only are they brilliant musicians they are professional and courteous. They are well revered in the city by many. They'll make any cocktail hour or event a party or a subdued atmosphere...whatever you're looking for.

We hired a string quartet for our son's wedding. Wedding was last night, and the music was wonderful. Two hours contracted, so we had seating music, ceremony music, and dinner music immediately following the ceremony. Great song repertoire, arrived on time and well prepared. We are very happy. Thank you.

Response from the owner: Thanks for the kind words. We work hard to find just the right entertainment for you and yours.
