Testimonials:

"The Woolies played at our wedding this past weekend, and I have to say they were absolutely amazing! Not only was Ben easy to work with, but every one of our guests, young and old, told us how much they enjoyed the music. I would recommend them to anyone hosting an event looking for some highly talented fun musicians! Thank you for making our wedding an astounding success!"
Tina Castellano and Brad McManigal.

Thank you so much for making our reception such a big hit. Our guests (of all ages) remarked at how much they enjoyed the music. I've never seen a dance floor at a wedding so crowded! I believe they could have danced all night long. JP and I have loved your music for years. I'm so glad that you were able to be a part of our big day. We'll certainly have special memories that will stay with us – always.
JP & Michelle Spampinato

Please pass my sincere gratitude to the Shanghai Woolies for playing at Concordia University's Library Learning Center Ground breaking Gala. This was an extremely important event as it was our "coming out party" to our high level donors. The Woolies were the icing on the cake in making the event a huge success. You created just the right ambiance that we were hoping to convey. In fact, one of our esteemed donors Isaac Regenstreif, former CEO for Pacific Corp Foundation commented as he walked into the Gala " The Shanghai Woolies… Wow they're my favorite band. This event is high class!" I also heard compliments about the music all night long as well as weeks after the event. I look forward to having you play for us again at other upcoming events and I would happily recommend you to anyone needing pure talent to highlight their event. Thanks again!
With warm regards, Trish

Thanks for making our Christmas party the perfect holiday experience! Our guests were raving about you and want to know where they can get more CD's! You actually got them to DANCE!!!! That was a first for us. Can we line you up to do this again next year?
Sincerely, Dr. David Shefrin

My fella and I are so happy that we found a band with incredible talent and fantastic stage presence for our wedding. The Shanghai Woolies have that down to an exact science!

The Woolies were the perfect band for our Mardi Gras Fundraiser. They were all really good musicians, kept the pieces short and snappy and were fun to dance to or just watch. Very entertaining! The average age of our membership is close to 70 but, I would highly recommend them for any age group.

There is simply not enough wonderful things I can say about the Shanghai Woolies!!! No words could do their performance at my wedding justice! Their musical talent, professionalism, personality, and their ability to read an audience is more than anyone could ever ask for in hiring a band. I would hire them over and over again! It was nothing but a privilege and honor to have them play for our big day!
