We had a wonderful experience with this group. They were able to "read" the party very well and performed accordingly. They knew when to be funny and when to be more serious and the people attending our party enjoyed them very much! The audience participation with "The Twelve Days of Christmas" will most certainly be one of the talked about events in years to come. Thank you John and Fermata D'Aria.

Sandra Thank you for the kind words. We truly felt like guests in your home rather than performers. Have a joyous Holiday season. Sincerely, John Q

I had such a pleasant experience with these gentlemen. They were the hit of the party! Not only are they all emensley talented but they're very nice guys and know how to work a room. My husband and I will not hestitate in booking them for another event. We couldn't have been happier! Last minute the WGN morning show confirmed that they would be filming live at our event. In a rush I asked if they could accommodate WGN and film one early morning segment, before they were scheduled to appear at the event which was hours later. Fermata D'Aria not only nailed their live performance, but we're kind enough to donate all their tips from that day to our charity! Great guys!

The guys went out of their way to create a unique, personal and special experience for our family. We were booking from out of the area and John made the process simple. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied and our needs met. Thank you. It was truly an evening we won't forget.

It was wonderful having this group entertain at our party! They are extremely talented and worked well with our guests whose ages ranged from 2 to 75. If you like barbershop singing (and who doesn't?), this group would be perfect for any event you are planning.

I can not tell you how PERFECT the evening was! Fermata D'Aria was a HUGE part of that! The guys were fabulous and my mom was thrilled beyond words. This was for her 70th birthday surprise party and she was surprised on so many levels, but when the guys walked in...she was speechless! They sang....they guests sang....my mom and dad sang, and everyone had a FABULOUS time!! I want to thank Fermata D'Aria again for their time...their talent...and their kind words...everyone had such a wonderful time and they were the icing on the cake. Thank you....Bravo! - Kaitie Mayberry Hauser

We had a sports theme Grand Opening for Assisted Living. They wore their striped vests for us and mingled with the Residents & Guests. Everyone loved them and sang along with them. They were PERFECT!

Fermata D'Aria more than met our expectations. They arrived early and ready to perform. The quartet willingly accommodated our requests for specific songs for our holiday memorial service. Everyone enjoyed! They are highly professional and personable, and we recommend Fermata D'Area without hesitation.
