“One of my guests came up to me and said, “Just when I think they played the best song yet, they go and play another!” I couldn’t have agreed more. ”
The V.R.B played at my wedding earlier this month and I cannot say enough fabulous things about them! Coque and Brenda made sure the wedding went off without a hitch from start to finish. They made sure every single detail was executed with perfection. I truly believe a wedding is made by the music- and The V.R.B sure rocked it!
We decided to have a piano cocktail hour followed by a 7-piece band for our reception. We had the choice of making the band as large or as small as we wanted. We provided a list of song requests including some very challenging Chopin music for the cocktail hour. The pianist was able to play these songs superbly and even took the time to learn new music to perform just for us. After a mellow, relaxing cocktail hour, we started the party with some classic Rock and Roll. WOW were we impressed!! The VRB learned the music to “Dream a little dream of me” and performed it live for our first dance. We were blown away with their rendition of our special song. Our guests were constantly dancing and singing throughout the reception because the music was simply contagious. One of my guests came up to me and said, “Just when I think they played the best song yet, they go and play another!”. I couldn’t have agreed more.
These musicians make up an extraordinarily talented group who can pretty much guarantee a good time will be had by all. The music was not too loud, not too quiet. It was perfectly balanced for our venue. Coque was not only a fantastic singer, he was an on-point Emcee. He mentioned all of the things we wanted him to. He memorized the names of our family members and other important individuals. He and Brenda communicated well with my planner so that everything was picture - and sound - perfect!
Thanks SO MUCH, VRB
“I cannot thank you enough. Your professional assistance, planning and just plain hand-holding at times made this a wonderful night enjoyed by many!”
Dear Coque and Brenda,
I wanted to let you know your band, The V.R.B, was out of this world fantastic! Any parent wants the best for their child’s wedding. Our daughter and her fiancée were living in another state, only wanted us to focus on one thing: to line up a fantastic band for their wedding. They had many out of town guests as well as dozens of family attending and they all love to have a great time with awesome music and dancing. I wanted someone to keep us (parents) on track and did not want family to worry about timing and meeting the major wedding benchmarks along the way. It was a great feeling when my daughter would call prior to the wedding with a question in the proceedings or music and I could say to her “Coque and Brenda took care of that”!
You always kept in touch, offered to meet with us as many times as necessary and offered support and guidance along the way. There were so many details we did not consider that you caught and ran with.
Your concern and the professionalism of V.R.B. showed in asking exactly what the band should wear. The band was extremely professional in everything from the style of their clothing for the wedding, to engaging and answering guest’s questions between sets. They were always warm and smiling and made us feel like old friends.
You asked us in depth questions about the overall sound and style of music as we went through the process of getting a playlist we all liked. V.R.B. sounded fantastic at our daughter’s wedding, many guests came up to us to complement our choice. We could not have been happier! The sound level was perfect for conversation and dancing with Brenda running the soundboard and taking requests. You really took care of us and made it all happen in a magical night.
We had never hired a band or ran a wedding but you and Brenda talked to us and asked questions and we were finally able to define our wedding ‘vision’ perfectly! Your role as emcee, made the wedding run smoothly and none of us in the wedding party had to worry about any of it. Your beautiful work as emcee allowed us to relax and enjoy the night! We really like how you worked with the other vendors to make every part of the wedding seamless and flawless!
Our guests loved V.R.B. and many asked about you, where you were performing next and they loved both the sound and choice of music (which you helped us nail down).
Brenda was great working in our special requests. All we had to do was ask her and she made the magic happen! I cannot thank you enough. Your professional assistance, planning and just plain hand-holding at times made this a wonderful night enjoyed by many!
I have to say V.R.B. exceeded our expectations in every way. From the dress of the band, to our song list to Brenda balancing the sound perfectly, we all loved you guys!
We would not hesitate to recommend V.R.B to anyone seeking a professional, great sounding and helpful band.
