What People say Regarding CTO Fifth Avenue® Dance Band

 

We had a wonderful night and the band was GREAT. In fact, we received photos yesterday and were talking about how many people were on the dance floor and how much fun they were having. I sent the following note to Ramona after the big day.

"You guys knocked it out of the park. Thank you thank you thank you! We had a blast, as did all of our guests. We knew you would put on a great show and you didn’t disappoint. If we could do it all over again we would not change a thing. Thank you again for lending your talent and flare on our special day. It was unforgettable."

Thanks for all of your help, we'll be sure to suggest CTO Fifth Avenue to anyone looking for live music that everyone will love.

CTO PARK CENTRAL®

 


What People say Regarding CTO Park Central® Live Band?

 

We had such a great experience with CTO Artists® and with our Band CTO Park Central® ! They were very responsive, addressed all of our questions and specific song requests. Our guests absolutely LOVED them! Thank you for such an amazing night that we will never forget!

- Stephanie McGuire


CTO Park Central® is THE hottest wedding band in Philadelphia. Hired them for our wedding reception and they were AMAZING! We danced and sang with them all night long!

- Melissa Nassar


My wife and I hired CTO Park Central® to play our wedding, and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

The dance floor was packed as soon as they started, and it stayed that way the entire night. The band leader Gloria worked really closely with us to build the program we wanted, and they not only accommodated all of our special requests, but they played incredible versions of their entire set list and kept the energy going all the way through their last song. Strongly recommended.

Aris Tzouflas


We were thrilled with CTO Park Central® at our daughter Sam's wedding. Gloria was soooo helpful and organized before and during the wedding.

Everyone present asked where we got the band from and of course, we told them about CTO. We would recommend them very highly.

We were really happy, they made the party a blast, kept the energy high and just knew exactly what they were doing.

Debra Feldman

- Susan Narcross


Used CTO Park Central for our son's wedding and we could not have been more thrilled. From start to finish the band was professional, musical and probably the finest players and singers I have ever heard assembled for a wedding band. They were also perfectly balanced in terms of sound. Not too loud at really any time for anyone. Kudos to the sound man that was included with the band.

- Mark Zettler


I have only WONDERFUL things to say about the incredible CTO Park Central® band from CTO. They were absolutely INCREDIBLE and completely exceeded my expectations. I've heard them twice prior (once at my sister's wedding in 2014, and again at a friend's wedding in 2015), and they are even better in 2018! Gloria is a superstar - and the band is the best I've ever heard. Their song selections were perfect, as were the vocalist associated with our entrance songs, and first dance, and father/daughter and mother/son dances.

Their energy is infectious and contagious and they make you not only want to dance but make you want to stand there and watch them perform like you're at a concert! We received basically 100 compliments about them throughout the evening and afterward, and as the bride and groom, we could not have been happier.

Thank you SO much and a huge thank you again to CTO for making our wedding dream come true. 🙂

CTO Midtown Express®

 



What People say Regarding CTO Midtown Express® Wedding Band

 

Virgil and the rest of CTO Midtown Express® are incredibly talented musicians who know how to keep the energy of the party going. They read our wedding crowd really well and kept the dance floor packed all night. Even though The Barnes Foundation where we held our wedding forbids subwoofers and requires the volume to be a bit lower to protect the artwork, we honestly could not tell because the band sounded so great. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about our phenomenal band - one person even asked if Midtown Express recorded a CD that she could buy! The band also did a great job at learning two new songs for us. There is absolutely nothing that we would change about our experience with Midtown Express® because their talent, professionalism, and responsiveness was incredible from start to finish.

- Anne Martinez


CTO Midtown Express® was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! The band leader, singers, and band members were all amazing and extremely accommodating. They brought so much energy and fun to our wedding.

- Mellisa Pohling


CTO Midtown Express® is fantastic!!! Not only are they great musicians and entertainers, they are great people who do their best to make your day magical. And do they ever! Our dance floor was packed from the first song to the very last. Thank you so much to CTO Midtown Express® for making the soundtrack to our wedding unforgettable!

Absolute one of the best bands I have seen in a. A very long time. They play a 4-hour concert at Altamonte Springs, Fl.

CTO Tribeca®

 



What People say Regarding CTO Tribeca® Party Band

 

We had CTO Tribeca for our wedding band on New Years Eve and couldn't have better things to say about them! They were a fantastic band, sounded great, interacted with our guests fantastically, and helped make it a night we'll never forget!
- Jarad Marx


Great company and the band Tribeca was better than we could have ever expected. Highly recommend for any function, but if you are looking for a wedding band to blow your guests away definitely check out CTO Tribeca.
- Meghan Graham


We are thrilled to have CTO Tribeca as our wedding band. I will add a review of the day after the wedding but have no doubt they will meet and exceed our expectations. Working with Angie and Carmen has been effortless! From our initial call to the showcase through contracting, they have been great partners. Angie really understands how to meet couple's needs and is extremely experienced in the market. I feel so lucky that leading up to our wedding day, I do not have a doubt about our band. The level of their performers is truly the best in class. Check out a showcase and see for yourself!
- Christina Morelli


CTO Tribeca is amazing!! We had CTO Tribeca at our wedding, and they are absolutely incredible! They put on a non-stop show for the entire wedding, and never ever take breaks. We had a wedding with 300 guests and all of them were dancing all night long! The dance floor was packed from start to the last second, and that is because of Tribeca. There was barely any room left on the floor, and that is exactly what we wanted. They are the best wedding band in Philly! All of our guests have been calling and texting us to comment on how fantastic CTO was. Maylyn, the band leader, is so wonderful and great to work with. She helped us to plan everything perfectly. The entire process with CTO was very organized and easy - which is exactly what a bride needs. I can't thank CTO enough for the party they threw at our wedding! I can only hope I'll be a guest at a Tribeca wedding one day!! THANK YOU!

DJ Joe®

 

What people say about DJ Joe®

 

Joe was incredible. He kept everyone moving and was a great emcee. My wife and I have attended a few events in the past where Joe was the DJ, so we booked him for our wedding and basically let him run with it. The dance floor was packed all night! We've received numerous compliments about how great he was. One of the best around.

- Christopher Moore


Joe was so awesome! He met with my husband a couple of times before the big day and went over everything with us to be sure we got what we wanted. He offered great suggestions when I had no idea what I wanted and the night of the wedding everything was perfect! Music wasn’t too loud but he knew how to get everyone up and dancing! Couldn’t have asked for a better person to DJ our wedding! Thank you!!

- Stefanie Davis


We are so glad that we hired Joe for our wedding! He had previously been the DJ for our friends' wedding last year, so once we got engaged we booked him as soon as we picked a date for our special day. Joe was always professional, quick to respond, and detail-oriented throughout the planning process. He did the music for both our ceremony and reception, and we received many complements on how great the party atmosphere was during the reception--mostly thanks to Joe!
We highly recommend his services to anyone in the area looking for a quality DJ for their wedding day!

- Megan & Miles, 07.21.18


Joe is the best. He coordinated the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and most importantly, he made our dance party everything we dreamed of. I cannot tell you how many guests told us he was the best wedding DJ they have ever heard. His online music database were you can literally choose every song you want him to play (and not play) kept the party going nonstop all night. He knows how to read the crowed, play toward the audience and mood of the room. He gets what kind of vibe the couple wants. He is not your typical wedding MC who gets on the michrophone all night and stands in the middle of the dance floor. He Gets on the mic only when necessary.
Seriously, he is the best.

- Melissa
