Thanks so much for the great performance at my daughter’s wedding reception this past weekend. Hip Service was a great hit! I have received many compliments on the band’s performance during both the cocktail hour and for dancing after dinner. The full dance floor all night was a great testimony to the band’s wonderful performance.
You were also very cooperative and great to work with in the planning before the big day. Thanks for helping to make my daughter’s wedding reception such a great event!

Unbelievable!!! Lovetrain was so so so so good. Everyone loved them. The songs covered all age groups and the dance floor was never emptied!!! David did an awesome job along with the rest of the group. I left there for Tahoe with the entire family so I was going to write you when I got back. My daugher and her now husband were so impressed and they said I was right to get the band verses the DJ. There just is no comparison. Thanks Steve for all your work!!!

I just wanted to thank you so much for the great people you sent our way, along with yourself of course. You have been a great help and I will always pass your information along. Doug Pauly did a beautiful job. People loved him. Lovetrain of course was fantastic. The dance floor was never empty unless they weren't playing. I have had many phone calls complimenting the band and Doug. They all made Ashley and Josh's wedding a very special and memorable day. None of us will ever forget it. I even had a blast, danced way too much, I had blisters on the bottom of my feet. Thank you so very much you guys are awesome.

I can’t say thank you enough for all the effort you, the members of Love Train, Mother Mayhem and the rest of your team put into making that a fantastic event. I look forward to seeing you again at our next MPI event!

Just wanted to let you know that the steel pans/keyboardist were wonderful last night. They were there on time, their music was fantastic and really set the tone for a fun and relaxed evening. Thank you for being so responsive so quickly – it’s nice to know you’re out there to help me with my musical needs!

Thank you for everything you did to make the MPI event the huge success that it was! The bands were great and it was fun to use this place and some of it's qualities. I sure hope we got a picture of the stage! It looked like a real rock concert!
Thanks again for everything.

Just wanted to reach out to you to tell you how great Gilda was on Valentine's Day. I didn't get a chance to thank her personally that night before she left. If you could extend my gratitude to her I would appreciate it. Melissa was also very thorough and very prompt. Great doing business with you. Talk to you soon-

I would like to say that AECSAC is a wonderful company. They are attentive, professional and informative. I am an Event Planner/Wedding Planner in San Francisco. This time I called for my own Wedding. Steve, our contact, listened to me and my fiance and hooked us up with a great band. They made us feel very at ease. They knew exactly what they were doing. I will keep suggesting AEC to many of my clients.

Please extend our sincere appreciation to Motoshi for his beautiful and talented harp playing. He really stole the show, and we are very grateful. His musical selection was superb. All our guests enjoyed hearing the music come to life by Motoshi. So did I as I was in the room next to him being soothed by the glorious harp music prior to my walk down the aisle.
Thanks a lot for coordinating all of this for us. Dan and I very much appreciate both you and Motoshi!

Thank you so much!

Thank you for following up from our wedding day! What an awesome event and Lovetrain really helped us out!
We had so many compliments on the band over and over throughout the night. We couldn't have asked for a better band. You may even get some phone calls from our guests requesting your services.
Thank you for all your help and we really enjoyed working with David! He was awesome and we loved him! Great team you have. Everyone danced!

Thank you for your creativity, patience, effort and support. The parents and students of Shalom School are extremely appreciative, especially me. Hip Service rocks!

Sorry it has taken me a while to get back. I was enjoying my honeymoon and then slowly adjusting to coming back to work.
My wedding was beautiful and I owe a lot of it to you. The lighting was incredible and the band kept my family on their feet the whole time. I have to say that everything turned out even better than I had imagined.
Ron was great to work with. He was very professional and the lighting units that he used didn't look tacky or stand out. He put in some orange lights the night before the wedding that ended up being too bright, and he came out early the next morning and changed them into these really subtle blue lights that looked gorgeous. The yard looked fantastic against his lighting.
As you know, I have a rather large and party-loving family. They love to be entertained and to dance. Big City Revue had them dancing the entire night. They let my uncle get on the stage and sing a bit and pulled my mom up there as well. Everyone had an absolute blast and we were all bummed when 11:30 rolled around and they had to stop. I would recommend them any day of the week and I would definitely like to see them play again sometime. Phil was so easy to work with and they did a great job emceeing the wedding and announcing the events of the night. My family cannot stop talking about that party and how fun the band was.
I want to thank you also for all of your expertise and professionalism. Planning a wedding is very hard work and it is a godsend to have people like you to work with. I knew I was in great hands right from the start. My mom and I were very pleased with the end result and cannot thank you enough.
Hopefully down the road I can plan another fun event where we can have a band. It really made my wedding so much fun and unique, especially when in a backyard setting.
Thanks again, Steve, for all of your help. You really made planning a wedding so much easier for me.
All the best,

We just had to let you know that Big City Revue was fabulous at our daughter's wedding this past Saturday night! They did exactly as we asked for time-line and dress and breaks. The crowd was dancing the whole night and a wonderful time was had by all! Thanks for your input and help in making some of our final decisions... the evening flowed beautifully! You seemed to know exactly what we were trying to achieve... and it happened!
Thanks for everything...

Not only were our guests, committee and our management thrilled with your performance for us at our 2005 Spring Gala “Deco and Diamonds”, they were doubly thrilled again, this year!!!
It was made very apparent to me that Hip Service “must” appear again! So, May 6, 2006 was another fabulous evening for Easter Seals! As your dancers waited and posed by the dramatic entrance to the ballroom it was made very easy for our guests to feel invited in as the great dance music started to rock the house! It is amazing what a difference one year can make. We had more people dance this year and a great many more people in the room and they stayed til the end of the evening – very unusual for our group. It had to be because of your fantastic vocals, dancers and, specifically, the whole experience!
It has been a joy to work with and get to know you, Steve. You have a fabulous band in Hip Service and your agency is wonderful to work with! Continued best of luck and I hope all your clients are as happy as we are to work with you. I would recommend Hip Service, and you, to anyone who wants to listen to me go on and on about your tremendous music and entertainment!

The party was AWESOME. Wow, was that band ever a HUGE hit!!!!! And yes, turning the party into a wedding surprised everyone and was so much fun. The hula dancers and band members were wonderful and I thank you again so much for all your help. The lighting, the food, the drinks, EVERYTHING was perfect!!! I have a lot of people that will be asking me for your name and number for party bands, etc..!!!
Thanks again Steve.
