Stella and the Stanleys
"We just have to say again (and again and again if we could!!) how sensational you and "the Stanleys" made our wedding! The comments have been pouring in since last Saturday night about you guys! Everybody was so happy and had a great time, which was of course our goal, and you all helped make that happen. Thank you a thousand times over. Stella & The Stanleys exceeded every single expectation and we will forever be in your debt!" - D.S and S.F (bride and groom)
"I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you did under very different circumstances Saturday at our daughter's wedding with the rain and everything. Your band just made it such a memorable event and I can't thank you enough. It was fun, it was just exactly what we all needed. Thank you again so much. You really made the evening special." - M.P.G. (Mother of the Bride)
"Dear Lisa: Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! You guys were perfect, and [the groom] and I particularly liked the way you did our song. Everyone loved the band... in fact, we had quite a few people tell us that the wedding was the most fun wedding they had been to in 20 years (!), and I think your music and keeping people on the dance floor had a lot to do with it. The night went by so fast, I am only sorry that [the groom] and I didn't get to dance more...but we certainly enjoyed the music all evening! Thanks very much to you and the rest of the band for being a part of our special day!" - S.R.I. (Bride)
"Stella and the Stanleys was awesome! In years past, when we had a DJ, people left early, not this time! Folks hung around and enjoyed the music. They were great to work with, I would recommend them highly!!!" - M.K., Event Coordinator
"Thanks so much -- you guys were a hit! We've been piecing together what happened after we left, and the one thing that everyone can agree on was that you guys were fantastic! Thanks again for all you did to make our day so perfect. I promise to recommend you guys to everyone!" - J.S. (Groom)
"The event was a complete success and we appreciate the great entertainment by Stella and the Stanleys. Lisa was very cooperative of our events during the evening and we truly enjoyed having them." - D. K., Corporate Event Coordinator
Hi Lisa :) [The groom] and I want to thank you and the rest of the band so much for your absolutely fantastic performance at our wedding. The ceremony music and vocals were perfect -- exactly what I'd been hoping for. And the reception was a huge hit with all the guests. At least 10, if not 20, people sought us out to ask us where we found your band and to tell us how much they were enjoying your music. Not to mention how much we enjoyed the music ourselves. It was outstanding -- exactly what I was hoping for. You guys have a wonderful sound and created a really wonderful atmosphere. I can't say enough to get across exactly how much we enjoyed having you play at our wedding. One of [the groom's] coworkers asked if I would send her your email address. She would like to suggest hiring your band for their company's holiday party. Would it be okay if I gave her your email address? [Answer: yes, we have done many holiday parties and enjoy them a lot] Thank you again for sharing your talents with us! - J. M. (Bride)
“Lisa, I can't tell you how many compliments I've received about your band. People are still calling to tell me what a wonderful time they had and how they loved the music. From the beginning to the end of the evening was just perfect. From some of the video I've seen so far, I don't think there was a time the dance floor wasn't packed. All of you are so professional and your sound is the best. Your version of "In My Daughter's Eyes" was beautiful, I don't think there was a dry eye in the whole place. Every song that was played was raved about. Thank you all so much for making a wonderful evening even more special. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a band. Thanks again and keep in touch as to where you are playing and we will certainly try to be there. - B. J. “A very happy Mother of the Bride.”
“Thanks Lisa!!! We keep getting compliment after compliment from people about how much they absolutely loved you. Every single song was just so wonderful and fun and beautifully done. It was great to see so many people out there dancing the whole night away!” - A. T. (Bride)
“What a great choice! Stella & the Stanleys were excellent. We got lots of compliments on the band.” - Bride’s response to agency questionnaire
"I wish to thank you all for playing at [my daughter's] wedding. The music was fabulous and I had a very difficult time staying off the dance floor (as you are well aware!).... We are thrilled that we decided to go with your band instead of a DJ who is usually so set in his/her routine. Our daughter's wedding was a very special day, and we are glad your band was one of the things that made it even more special." - C.M. (Mother of the Bride)
“Dear Stella & the Stanleys - Bottom line - you guys ROCK! Thanks for the last minute advice and all of the support. We knew you would be the perfect band for our wedding. Thanks for making it 10X as special.” - L. L. and C. L. (Bride and Groom)
“You all did an excellent job. We are so excited to have such a fun and talented band in this area!!” - B. B. (Hostess)
“Wonderful! Everyone had a great time and the dance floor was crowded all night. The band was classy and yet fun - which is exactly what I was looking for. They helped to make the night special and we felt we had the wedding of our dreams!" - Bride’s response to agency questionnaire
“Thanks for all the last minute help and advice. You helped me think through what I wanted and then made it all happen. The music was out of this world.” - S. H. (Bride)
“You guys do it all! We have had difficulty with bands not doing all styles and someone always complains. Everyone loved you! Thanks.” - A. M. (Event Coordinator)
“I can’t tell you how many people complimented me for my choice of a band. Thanks for making me look good, and please let me know if you play a public gig. I’m your new biggest fan.” - N. B. (Bride)
“We would just like to thank you for everything. Both of us were receiving great compliments on the wonderful band we chose. We enjoyed all of the music selections and it was great how you sensed just what the crowd wanted to hear.” - J. W. & C. W. (Bride and Groom)
