Testimonials (shortened due to space limitations):
Thank you so much for the wonderful music that you provided for my wedding. Not only have you been utterly professional in every way, it has also been a great pleasure working with you. Thank you for accommodating our special requests to learn the songs that were most meaningful to us, as well as for agreeing to have the saxophonist play the recessional for that added special and unique touch.
We've received rave reviews about the music from many of our guests, particularly from our friends who know their music--young and old alike, and who, by the way, represented six different continents (all except for Antarctica). It is definitely a testament to your talent and ability to appeal to a very diverse crowd. Your music set the mood for a very elegant, relaxed and warm reception, with just the right amount of zing. If ever there is anything I can do to show my gratitude, please let me know.
Once again, thank you so much for all your help.
Jonathan and I are back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you, Madeleine Peyroux, and the rest of your band for such an extraordinary evening.
We have been to so many cookie-cutter weddings, and we really wanted to throw a party that stood out, and didn't feel like a wedding we had already been to. We wanted sophisticated, yet fun, and you delivered that and more.
Your musicians are really talented, and the music you guys played was extremely danceable. And as a band leader, you couldn't be a better presence (not to mention the hot harmonica playing!). Then there's Madeleine Peyroux. Hard to say enough about her except to say that it was an honor to have her sing at our wedding.
So Ron, thank you and Full Swing for exceeding all our expectations. Jonathan and I are pretty tough critics and we think you guys are just the best. Please feel free to use us as a recommendation.

GREAT MUSIC! How were we ever stressed out about our wedding? You were excellent--relaxed and relaxing, cool and accommodating. We got endless compliments on song selection, volume and style. Thanks for bringing all the class and professionalism.

Jason and I wanted to write to thank you for the music you provided at our wedding. You guys were absolutely amazing and you made the party so much fun for us and our guests. It was also a real treat to have Madeline (she's amazing as well) and I know we have you to thank for that. I can't tell you how many compliments we have gotten from our guests, most saying it was the best wedding music they've ever heard. One (of the many) great things about your music is that it appeals to all age groups, as evidenced by the representation on the dance floor (Jason's grandmother in her eighties had to be physically removed from the dance floor (!) and our friends in their twenties had just as much fun). It was also a pleasure working with you--you were so nice and helpful throughout the whole process, which is great when you are a stressed out bride and groom! We plan on coming to see you sometime when you are playing in the city. Thanks so much again and we hope to see you soon. Take care.
