From Support Connection, November 2012:
Dear Kevin and members of BK Party Band,
From WeddingWire.com January 2012:
From Katie & Keith's Wedding October 8 2011:
“Just wanted to let you know how very much you made our daughter's wedding so VERY SPECIAL!!!! Everyone loved the music and could not sit down!You made the whole process from beginning to end so easy by making us part of your family!! Thanks so much!!Can't wait to hear you all again and SOON!!!”
From Ruth & Jeremy Wedding, July 9, 2011
“We loved Big Kahuna Band! Our guests were all raving about the band, and even our neighbors who were not at the wedding let us know that they loved the music!! The musicians were very professional and flexible. They came out to check out our back yard prior to the wedding and let us know exactly what they would need for their performance. Big Kahuna also learned our wedding song for us! They are a large band that is very versatile and you can not even find a smaller band with similar songs for a better price...aka they gave us a great price for their size/versatility(which is always important when searching for vendors). The band was also really easy to talk to and seemed that they were really interested in making our day special. They succeeded...THANKS Big Kahuna!!”
From Becky and BJ Wedding, July 3, 2011
“The band kept us and our guests on the floor the whole night. They were also very good about learning our first dance as well as the songs for our parents. Wonderful!!!”
From MJ and Keith Wedding, May 22, 2011
“The Big Kahuna was great beyond expectations. Their music got everyone to dance. Even the people who never dance. They practiced Italian songs and sang them beautifully. My parents were very happy. Guests are still taking about how much fun they had at our wedding. I have seen many bands play at different venues. What I liked about The Big Kahuna, they can play many different types of music. You have much flexibility with them. Much thanks for great music.”
From John & Jessica Fuller September 18, 2010 Wedding:
“I had so much trouble going around to all of the tables to greet the guests at our wedding because no one was ever in their seats! As promised, Big Kahuna had everyone up on the dance floor all night long. They played all the classic wedding hits plus several more recent songs. They also learned new songs for several special moments during the reception. I would definitely recommend Big Kahuna for a super fun wedding!”
From the Support Connection, April 10th, 2010:
"You guys are wonderful. Heard you quite a few times at Support Connection Galas. Your diversity is what does it. Enjoyed all your songs."
From The Hurleyville Fire Department Installation Dinner, January 2010:
"Lightning strikes twice with the Big Kahuna band! On January 9, 2010 the Hurleyville Fire Department hosted our annual installation dinner and we were pleased to have the Big Kahuna band back for our entertainment. Bob, Casey and the band were outstanding as usual and we all had a great time. They surely put on a fire show we couldn't contain (and didn't want to) so the bottom line is if you want great entertainment that will get everybody out of their seats and on the dance floor you don't have to look to far take it from me its a three alarmer you like to respond to!"
From the WHUD Radio Station Christmas Party, December 2009
"My name is Deanna and I am the Event Coordinator for K104 and WHUD. I love the Big Kahuna Band's versatile sound and their enthusiasm, they really know how to entertain and get EVERYBODY on the dance floor. That is why I not only hire them for our radio station's events, but this year we hired them for our OWN Holiday Party! They did an amazing job and successfully made it our BEST Holiday Party yet! We have different personalities, and different musical genres that needed to be catered to, and it was awesome that The Big Kahuna Band knew so much and played everything from Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me" to Eric Clapton's "You Look Wonderful Tonight" And for that I say Thank you Big Kahuna Band!"
From the Elizabeth Anne Seton Ball, November 2009:
"Thank you so much! We had a Ball ( literally and figuratively as well!). I cannot tell you how everyone raved about the event, music, etc. You get everyone up dancing and just having a wonderful time. I am so grateful for your kindness in discounting the evening. I will get on the guestbook as soon as I can. Thanks and have a great day. The band certainly gave 300 people the opportunity to have a fabulous time."
From Aline Graves Wedding, July 18, 2009
“Awesome band!! My friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. They were professional, easy to work with and so much fun!”
From The Town of New Windsor, July 2009:
"Big Kahuna was great! We had a huge crowd for their outdoor concert. They played a variety of music that entertained all age groups. We would definitely have them back!"
From The Aline & Brian Speeckaert Wedding, July 2009:
"Thank so much for the amazing time!!! You kept the dance floor full all night!! Everyone had the best time! I am still hearing how great our wedding band was. You are awesome! Thank you!!!"
WHUD Radio Valentine's Dance 2009
From The Support Connection, Inc., 2009
"I just wanted to say that The Big Kahuna band put on one GREAT show for all of us from the Hurleyville Fire Department! We celebrated 87 years of service and our 50th Annual Installation dinner. The weather was terrible but the music was fantastic. Bob and the gang put on a great show and truly were the life of the party! Any one looking for top notch entertainment doesn't have to look too far. Take it from me you wont be sorry!"
"Thank you for providing such amazing entertainment for my mom's 70th Birthday party. Your enthusiasm was contagious and everyone had such a great time dancing to your beat. You guys made the party!!! I also appreciated your professionalism. Thanks again. Steve and I will come hear you play again soon. . . I love to dance and I loved the music you played!!!"
"Thanks to the band for helping to make our holiday party such a success. Great selection of tunes and great delivery! Everyone was dancing and had a great time! The music was (at) the perfect sound level and having the music continue on breaks kept things flowing. Hope we can do it again next year! Thanks again."
"We would like to thank you one more time for the great music and entertainment you treated us to at the party. Your generous spirit and musical talent filled our evening with plenty of fun. We had heard that your band was excellent and you certainly lived up to your reputation. Hope we will have a chance to "party" with you again. People here are still talking and many people have said, "the band was great". It was certainly our privilege to have you guys with us for such a special occasion.. Again, thank you for being a part of a special day. Everyone enjoyed the band and also thanks for the mention during the game. We were listening on the way home and hearing your "shout-out" made our day."
From "Singles Going Wild";
I can't thank you enough for making my party the talk of the town (and I mean that literally...the neighbors were all talking). You were suburb!! Other than my firework display, you were all everyone talked about for days after. You played all the right music at the perfect tone. I had a variety of age groups, and you hit on all of them. My Dad was especially impressed. I also want to thank you for working with me with the cost. You had a lot of driving time, set up time, playing time and breakdown time that really doesn't add up to what you charged me. I would like to extend myself to all of you, as I am an electrical contractor, if there is anything I can help you with. I also would like to add a special thanks to Casey...THANK YOU!!!! I will continue to "highly" recommend you, as a few of my guests have already asked for your contact information. Attached is the site where you can view some of the pictures from that day.
Dear Big Kahuna Gang,
Ivan and I just wanted to thank you all for making our wedding day so fun and memorable. We received quite a few compliments for our choice for the band. Hope you all enjoyed performing for us as much as we enjoyed having you. We will be sure to recommend you to anyone who asks. Thank you all again.
To The Big Kahuna Band,
Thank you to all of you for helping to make our wedding day a success!
"Thank you for playing at our pool party at Jefferson Village. All our parties in the past have utilized the services of a DJ and having the band there was a refreshing change. Actually it was better than the DJ! All our homeowners were delighted at the quality of music and someone commented to me that they thought they were at a concert. It has been a pleasure working with you and your band."
Joseph Visconti, CBR
"Margarette and I want to thank you all for playing at our wedding and for making it the rousing success that it was! Not being able to talk to you in person but communicating entirely by phone and email from California as we did, it was amazing how easily you handled the affair. From dealing with the caterers (and even the party rental company!), playing our requests and co-ordinating the sequence of events, you made it all come off flawlessly. And of course the music sounded great."
Kurt and Margarette Wiemann
"As new members of the Cold Spring Boat Club we had no idea how much fun we had been missing at the annual Steak Bake. It's obvious why your here year- after-year. We knew all your songs and danced all night. Thanks for a great time."
John and Mary Franz
"Thank you all so much for making our (wedding) day that much more special. All of you were wonderful and nobody can stop talking about how good you were. Thanks again and we will highly recommend you to everybody."
Jenny and Jason Meehan
"We all had a great time the night you played aboard the River Rose. Your band is excellent. No.....it's better than excellent.....it's super excellent!"
"Thank you all for "making" our party. Everybody had a wonderful time. You played a variety of music, accommodating every age group. We especially appreciated your co-operation during the evening with the speeches and special requests. Thank you again!"
"Big Kahuna made our annual department dinner dance a hit once again. The reason is that they know how to make it FUN! They are superb musicians, their energy is high, and they really relate to the crowd. They had us on the dance floor to the very end. Thanks to Donna and the rest of BK."
