“The wedding was glorious and the band was fantastic! Everyone enjoyed you tremendously. Great musicians you are! And friendly people too. Nice and easy to work with. We gave a high recommendation to the folks at the inn (Crisanver House, Shrewsbury, VT).”

Michael Gaeta - July 2001

“You guys rocked. Julie and I can honestly say the best wedding reception we have been to is our own, in large part to you. You kept everyone dancing and the music had so much energy no one wanted it to end. We will recommend you guys to anyone who is having a wedding in the future. Thank you so much for playing.”

Damien Fosnot and Julie Branby - July 2001

“The Fink-Kawall wedding of Sept 24 at Union Station (Northampton, MA) is now history but the memories are very sweet to me, and your band is a major reason why. Not only is your music in every way really excellent but you also respected the needs of other activities going on. You got rave comments from so many of our friends and family. We feel so fortunate that we could get you for this occasion. Many, many thanks.”

Barbara Fink - September 2000

“Steven and I would like to thank you for the awesome job you did playing at our wedding. Everyone had a great time dancing. You were a big hit with all the kids. Thanks for providing such great entertainment.”

Lisa And Steven Haddad - June 2001

“We wanted to thank you all four of us from our hearts. We want to commend you all for such a great job at my son Richard’s wedding September 16th at the Hotel Northampton (Northampton, MA). Sharon and Richard LaBarge were very impressed with your music and professionalism and how caring you all were. You made the wedding. Again thanks for such a great day .”

City Councilor Marianne LaBarge & Family - September 2000

“You are incredible! You made our day even more perfect with your amazing musical talent and your ability to learn a crowd! You played what the guests wanted/needed to keep them dancing and having fun throughout the night. You do what needs to be done and deal with who needs to be dealt with and you do it with a smile! People are still talking about what a great band we had. I’ve been a wedding photographer for 8 years and I know you’re the best. Thank you so much for a great time and all sorts of wonderful memories.”

Kimberly Jones - September 1999

“Robin and I would like to again express our appreciation to you for your invaluable contribution towards making Graham’s Bar Mitzvah celebration party a great success. The band’s appeal crossed all age groups and I was especially delighted to see how much the 13 –14 year old crowd enthusiastically responded to you having been exposed almost exclusively to DJ’s to date. This is especially gratifying because it promoted a unity among the guests which I’ve observed lacking in many celebrations of this sort. We shall look forward to attending events where Paris is playing. Please feel free to list us as a reference.”

Mark Immerman & Robin Freedenfeld - May 2000

“Bob and I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did at our party (50th birthday, 25th anniversary ) on July 3rd. We had never hired a band before and it was a bit scary, but your professionalism not to mention your talent made it a joy. Please feel free to give out our name and number for references if you want. Thanks again for making our party so memorable – our friends are still commenting on it.”

Janet Bissell - July 2000
