CLIENT REVIEW: Dana Randazzo - Redondo Beach Wedding October 2014

Best Decision for Our Wedding

The best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Ben Mallare for live entertainment. We received so many compliments and excitement asking us how we found Ben. All guests were at awe during his performances!

Ben and his mates sing everything from pop, rock, old time classics to new age. For our first dance, he learned a song that very few people have ever heard of, and sang it on tune with ease. His vocals are amazing. We enjoyed every second of it.

Ben also did a fantastic job directing the reception. Introducing us to the dance floor as Mr. and Mrs., leading up to the cake cutting, bouquet toss, father / daughter dance, etc. I don't know what we would have done without him! He kept the night flowing and the crowd dancing all night long. No one wanted to leave!

Ben is professional, responded to emails in a timely manner, met with us prior to our wedding date to finalize details and was a pleasure to work with.

Ben gets an A++ for the fantastic job him and his mates did at our wedding. I can't say enough good words about the entire experience. I hope I get the pleasure of seeing him perform again. He was that good.

Ben Mallare is amazing and his band made our party absolutely unforgettable! The energy that he brought and his ability to read the crowd ensured that the dance floor was always packed by guests of all ages. Not only is Ben talented, he is also extremely kind and professional. Leading up to the big day we emailed back and forth and he was always responsive and brought so much positive energy. Party planning with him was easy! Ben’s vocals are incredible and his band’s musical range allows him to cater to your personal tastes. We had guests coming up to us all night praising Ben’s performance and telling us how amazing the band was.

Let me start by saying, stop your search and hire Ben Mallare and the band to perform for whatever special occasion you are going to celebrate. Thanks to Ben, determining the plans for music on our wedding day was never stressful. Ben was quick to respond to all of our questions and open thoughts. The music selection list that Ben and the band can perform is quite extensive and it ranges several decades. The musical performance was absolutely amazing and fitting. Ben and the band played the right music based on the mood and energy of our guests. Feedback from our guests began at dinner and didn’t stop for several days following our wedding day.
