Kevin Osborne Band Reviews: "YOU make the party. Period. End of story!"

 

Dear Kevin,

 

It was a true pleasure seeing you on Saturday night at our dear friend’s daughter’s wedding. I can only say this – we heard you the first time at Michael’s wedding 5 years ago maybe? Then we heard you at his sister Heather’s wedding, then you played at Robin’s daughter Harleigh’s wedding (Robin and I go back 40 years) and then I made sure that Nancy hired you for her son Eric’s Bar Mitzvah. Get the picture?

When Judy called me with a wedding date, I insisted she book you before she had THE SPACE – I said “Judy – do not even listen to another band: Kevin is your man” and Judy went ahead and booked you. Judy is thanking me over and over again and so did Nancy and Mark after Eric’s Bar Mitzvah. In all my party going years filled with wonderful events, I have never heard a band better than yours. YOU make the party, period. End of story. The food, flowers, room- it all matters but…. Everyone cares most about having a wonderful fun time dancing and you make it all happen. You have presence, style, polish and an understanding of the rhythm of a party and crowd that no other band leader has. Your voice is the best and you always put together a great group. My husband and I went on our usual jog on Sunday after getting home at 2 am and our legs felt like we had run a marathon the day before. I can go on and on but you get the point.

My husband Paul and I are determined to come up with an event in the future (we don’t have children) so we can hire you. We will – it’s only a matter of time. 70th birthday, retirement? , anniversary whatever! We love to entertain and what better way than to share your marvelous talent with all of our friends. You ARE the best.

 

Happy New Year and warmest regards,

 

Karen

 


Kevin Osborne Band Review: "THRILLED!"

 

Kevin!!

 

Returned on Saturday from two weeks in Italy, and I cannot reiterate enough how THRILLED we are with how everything turned out. We had the best time ever and I'm dying to find another opportunity to save our pennies and have you guys party with us again soon! The songs and overall vibe of the night were so special, and we really feel like that was all due to the amazing performers you have in your band! Thank you (and Erik!!) so much for all of your help and patience in helping us throw the best party ever. We had a ton of people who go to weddings all the time and they said we had the best band they had ever heard. We will likely be connecting you with a few newly-engaged couples very soon!

Thanks again! Hope to keep in touch with both of you!

 

Best,
Jessica

Kevin Osborne Band Review: "Thank you for making our night so special!"

 

Hi Kevin,

 

Now that we’ve had some time to rest and recap, we wanted to thank you and your band for creating an energy that made our wedding night surpass all expectations. The most consistent feedback that we’ve gotten about the evening has been related to the band, particularly the upbeat energy and the impressive versatility, not to mention the most epic hora anyone has ever seen. Whenever we hear these comments we want to reply “well obviously, it’s Kevin Osborne!” but most aren’t as lucky as we are to have been at parties with you before. We also wanted to especially thank you for taking the time to learn our first dance song. We had so much fun learning the dance and it was a really special memory we will always have.

So again, thank you for making our wedding so special!! We are your biggest fans!

 

Best,

Amanda and Evan

Hank Lane Music's Wedding Band Reception: Kevin Osborne Band

Hi Kevin.  I hope you're rockin' away. This is Zamir, Stephanie's dad.  I've finally decompressed from the wedding on 10/10. I wanted to write you a note to let you know how every one of our guests were so complimentary to the Kevin Osborne Band.  Most felt, as did I, that it was the best music by far they ever heard at an event.  To me it  was like being at a concert more than at a wedding.  More impressively was that the intensity and skill of the music playing transcended the songs themselves. I also wish to thank you for some of your guidance and support throughout the event.  Telling my daughter Stephanie that it was good luck to have rain at a wedding was comforting, as was your telling me to just see that all the guests were having a good time and that that's all that mattered.   Incidentally, every one of those guests without exception had only wonderful things to say about the entire evening. So on behalf of my family, which more than doubled in size in one day, I wish to extend to you and your band members my sincerest appreciation and thanks.  You bring much happiness and joy to so many people, and you seem to have a great time while you're doing it. Warmest regards, Zamir

Hank Lane Music's Wedding Band Review: The Kevin Osborne Band

Dear Kevin, Thank you for everything September 4th.  Michael and I could not have asked for better music. From start to finish The Kevin Osborne Band was fabulous and kept the dance floor going all night long.  As I am sure you hear all too often, by the end I could not believe how quickly the night flew by.  We have received numerous complements about how great the band was and could not be happier with the wedding. Thank you again! Sara & Michael Aingorn

Hank Lane Music's Wedding Band Review: The Kevin Osborne Band

 

Kevin and Allison- I am sneaking away for a moment to let you know that you have ruined my honeymoon! How can I possibly focus on being a newlywed and "married bliss" when all I do is relive every second of #clubgarbis #clubzipp #weddingoftheyear #garbisunzipped (all the hashtags have been used above and the first 3 created on the spot) thanks to you! From the second the doors opened and The Kevin Osborne Band introduced the nonstop dance party, to the intro song we worked hard on, our first dance, the hora, and then four hours of the best music ever, you truly blew my guests, my family, and ME and Jordan away. The compliments we received range from "best band of all time" to "i've never danced this much in my life" to "haven't I seen them at the Grammy's?" to my personal favorite "better than Vegas!" Aside from just killing it, thank you for working with me to make Jordan's return to punk rock a seamless execution. Oh and let's not even talk about my dad's speech and how you worked with him to get that audio footage. Sneaky - and thanks for making me cry:) Most times when you have a band and DJ combination, it's hard to switch on and off and the transition is flawed. This was flawLESS. Kevin's amazing voice complemented by Allison's perfect weaving of songs just hit it. We wanted a dance party, and we got a dance party. I honestly have flashbacks of my wedding every second and besides my vows, they are all to the dance floor. Can we just do this every weekend? Moreover, can I just follow you around and be your groupie? I think you need a hype girl on the dance floor to make sure everyone dances, I will gladly be that for you! I love you both dearly for working with me over the past months to make this the best night of our lives. I'm actually really serious about being your cheerleader, on and off the dance floor you have me for life. Xo - Carly (and Jordan, the punk rock prince)
