CLIENT REVIEWS

 
"Gordon and Donnamarie are amazing, helpful and  really knowledgeable about everything wedding!"

"Our search for a wedding band was extensive, but when we saw Gordon Dukes and his band perform live at O’Flanagan’s in NYC, we knew we'd finally found what we were looking for.

We were blown away by their musical talent and the fun and high energy of their performance, and

we immediately booked them for our wedding.

The band knocked it out of the park and had our guests dancing from the moment they stepped into the reception all the way to the moment it ended. The pianist also performed at both our ceremony and our cocktail hour and did a beautiful job.

We long ago lost track of the number of compliments we've received on the band, and to this very day, people are still raving about them when they talk about our wedding.

They were INCREDIBLE, and truly one of the highlights of our special day. Choosing “The Best Wedding Band” will be the best decision you make while planning your wedding!!!"

 

Our Client Say It Best!

"I hired the band for my daughter's wedding at the Garden City hotel. The band was spectacular!! 

Many guests commented on the excellence of the music. My wife and I have been dance partners

for several decades and we have had experience with many bands for all types of music.

This was the BEST!"

"Gordon, Christine, and the band were amazing! 

From the ceremony to reception they were exceptional. They were even able to play some Spanish and Caribbean music for our Guyanese relatives. Everyone raved about them. They made our wedding a memorable one! Do not hesitate in booking this band!"

"Honestly, the band makes or breaks the wedding and this band made the wedding. People did not

stop dancing the entire time and I am getting phone calls on who the band was. They are professional, easy to work with and just wow the crowd. You won't be disappointed. This is the best decision you

can make for any event."

"When we were planning our wedding we realized that there are a few major expenses, like the

flowers, the catering, and the band, that we could research to death, but we just couldn't know whether

we'd made a good decision until our wedding day. We just had to trust that we'd hired professionals.

I'm very happy to be able to say that our trust in Gordon Dukes and his band was repaid a hundred times over. As an emcee he managed the event extremely well, keeping the pacing just right, he had a broad list of music we could pick from and gracefully handled music we requested - what other band 

can do a perfect rendition of the Bob Newhart Show theme song with a week's notice?

The dance floor was full from the very first song and we got so many comments on how terrific the band was.

I honestly can't recommend hiring Gordon for your event strongly enough. He made a very special

day for us even more special"

"Having the Best was the most important aspect  of  planning our reception. We knew that we  wanted only The Best Wedding Band,  because without great music, there isn't much  of a party."
