Rebecca and I just wanted to reach out and thank you again for an amazing performance by Hudson Project at the ICA on Saturday night.
The client could not stop raving about you and her guests can't stop talking about you guys. We had so much fun working with you and can't say enough how impressed we are with everything about Hudson Project. We look forward to working with you again in the future!

All the best,

We have a friend who is very good at finding the worst in everything and telling you about it, yet even he was as in awe with your performance as everyone else.
There were times when Jay and I didn't know if we could even handle anymore dancing because of the amount of energy you and your group had. Thank you for leaving it all out there for us. We and our guests had the time of our lives. From singing Tina Turner with Cara to the little touches you threw in there for us (call me maybe) Jay and I cannot thank you and your band enough.

I wanted to thank you for The Hudson Project - they blew the guests away and the dance floor was never empty!!!!!
We literally had problems getting the guests to sit down so that the wait staff could do their work - it was amazing. I truly needed a larger dance floor - so they really, really, really were great. Thank you again and I can not wait for the next time.

I have no words to describe how incredibly you all were last night,and how thankful I am that YOU on a two show day got to Guastavino's.

Honestly, choosing you guys as our band was the easiest and best decision we ever made. I think literally every single person came up to me or Adam during the night to say "who the hell is this band, they are the best band in the world, i can't stop dancing!"

You guys are the best, and i really mean that – not just great, not just good, but the best. I know we talked about this before, but you need to get people to come see you at these gigs, the show you put on rivals anything that goes on any night on a broadway stage. You are a star, and I do not say that lightly.

You guys gave such an incredible energy to the party, and the crowd never wanted it to end. I was so psyched when "Walking on Broken Glass" came on I had to just jump up there with you guys.

From the very beginning I knew i was in impeccable hands with you. Thank you for creating the most amazing atmosphere for the best night of our lives.

Keep in touch, and thank you from the bottom of my married heart : )

all my love,
Sas

We wanted to send a note and thank Eric and The Hudson Project for the most incredible wedding!
Our wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, referred us to you for our wedding in Palm Beach at the Breakers on March 9 and we were so BEYOND thrilled with everything!  You completely understood my husband and I with every song you selected and played  and truly gave us the dance party of our dreams.  Your energy, music and voices made for an unforgettable evening and I can't tell you how many people are still asking us 'who was your band - they were amazing!'  So thank you for everything, you really set the tone for the most fun, unforgettable evening.

Best,
Emily & Aaron

In case you don't already know, I am reminding you that you are an extraordinary talent with a big heart.
The band was spectacular and brought the wedding party over the top! And, what a pleasant surprise to perform the additional music that kept the party going until later in the evening. Everyone raved about the Hudson Project wanting to know who you were and how we found you. It was a great recommendation by both the Pratt House and Matthew Robbins.

I wish you continued success with Elan Artists. I have no doubt that you will be setting the world on fire with your voice, your showmanship and your professionalism.

Please thank the members of the band for me for creating a magical evening.

Warmly,
Karen

You guys were absolutely amazing!
I will definitely be referring you to my future couples. I really enjoyed working with all of you. The nicest, professional band I have yet to work with in DC! It was a true pleasure! I have already told my coworkers to put your name out there! I have some friends in NY as well that I will be sure to tell to refer you!

Hope to work with you again soon! Cheers!

Best regards,

I cannot thank you, The Band and the sound guys enough for such an awesome job last night.
I have had nothing but rave reviews all day. The Hudson Project is the talk of East Hampton, yet again, and deservedly so.

Your flexibility moving inside, due to the weather, was seamless and your fantastic last minute set up for cocktails was genius.

All of you really care and poured your hearts into the event; it shows and it sets you apart.

The musical balance was ideal; the sound was fat, perfectly balanced and sensitive to the audience and time; and the execution was flawless.

It is a great pleasure to work with such talented and enthusiastic professional people, you set the bar very high in your business. Please thank everyone involved. As we discussed, I moved you to the top of our Preferred Vendor List for Bands and keep my fingers crossed that it will mean many enjoyable events working together in the future.

Yours,

Nick

I declare that the magical combination of the Hudson Project plus our rowdy group of hooligans produced the sweatiest dance-floor in the history of marriage.
The energy on stage was mirrored and magnified on our perpetually packed dance-floor, bursting with everyone from our teenage cousins to Janie's 91 year-old grandmother. From the moment people stepped foot in the tent, before guests were "supposed" to dance, Andrea and co. had a magnetic ability to get people out of their seats, fired up, and going wild.

I would also like to commend the extraordinary level of personalization delivered by the band- from learning the St. Louis-appropriate "Country Grammer" to the rap classic "Regulators" (they literally flew down their rapper to perform at our wedding) to killing our first dance song "Made to Love Her". The professionalism and energy that Hudson Project pours into every song, whether it's Hava Nagila or Edward Sharpe, is simply unmatched. Unlike most wedding bands, this is a group that I would pay top dollar to see at a concert venue.

The aftermath of the night has been the ultimate testament to the talent of this band. Obviously people will be polite and dive into hyperbole about the magic of your wedding. Our feedback, however, has been nothing but genuine, authentic proclamations that Hudson Project is the best wedding band that they've seen, putting past and future wedding bands to shame. You've created a new standard. If you have the priveldige to lock these guys up for an evening, your mind, and those of your guests, will be eternally blown.

I can't even begin to try to find the words to thank you for the most unbelievable night of my life!
You guys ROCKED THE HOUSE! All everyone has said to me is how amazing you were- I wish I could have another wedding so that I could hear you all sing again- bc it was just beyond outrageous. All I can say is- anyone I can recommend you too- consider it done. You guys are spectacular! I think we already have someone booking you guys.

Thank you again – and please pass this onto the whole band- all I can say is WOW!

Thank you and the rest of the band for being absolutely AMAZING at our wedding last Friday.
I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that EVERY PERSON at our wedding came up to us and said, "YOUR BAND IS THE BEST BAND EVER." Even our video and photographer (who both have seen so many bands!) said you guys were the best band they have heard. You all worked SO hard and every song you played was amazing. THANK YOU for EVERYTHING. You MADE our wedding so special. And we will NEVER forget. Thank you, thank you!!! We ADORE you guys.

Much love,
Chris and Jaap Ritzen Andrea-

Dyson and I cannot thank you enough for everything that you did at the wedding.
You guys were amazing - absolutely unbelievable. Everyone in maryland is talking about you guys!!!! My dad wants to know if you ever play at any bars or clubs in nyc and he wants to come hear you play again! Can we get on your mailing list???

Anyway, thank thank thank you - we loved you guys so much and you made our night so magical (and wild)!!!!

You are all PHENOMENAL!!!!
I have received calls all morning from friends and family raving about The Hudson Project. Erica and Marc were very wise to have chosen your Band for their wedding. No doubt I will be encouraging everyone who needs a band to hire The Hudson Project... Working with you was an absolute delight (my little paisano)... Thank you for making our Daughter's wedding a really special and extremely happy experience. Keep singing and smiling...you're the best!!!

Warm regards,

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the wedding was!!!! The band was unreal! How did you find such an amazing band that sounds even better than the recording artist that sings the original!! No one wanted them to stop! Each band member showed such love for Ali and Adam and their talent and warmth showed through!!! Thankyou all so much!!! Hope to see you all again and I surely know if Andrea needs a dancer she will call Ali! Ask her about her ultimate compliment!! Thanks!!!!!!

Hi Andrea, We hope to see you guys soon…loved your performance!

My Best,
Caroline DeBottis

I did want to tell you that we received actual thank notes to us from friends for being invited to our wedding!!!
People loved it! The band was amazing (did you get that? AMAZING!!!) The energy and skill were unmatched. We had so many comments like "where did you find them?" because in no way does Hudson Project resemble a typical "wedding band"...of course, the whole band is so great looking too so that is always fun when people see these gorgeous talented people performing on stage!!! As the bride, I was so pleased that all of our special requests were met including our first dance song, the song while I read my speech (Seasons of Love), my old fave (Always and Forever) and a new fave (Tightrope) and that we pulled of my tap dance extravaganza!!! I loved Andrea and felt a real affinity united (huge Broadway fans!!!) People danced the whole night and had such a good time. Of course our venue was fabulous. The band was flawless!

Thank you for being a part of our important celebrationt and for making our wedding so spectacular!

Lots of love,
Kim

We can't thank you enough for the fantastically amazing job at our wedding.
We were determined to ensure that our celebration wasn't "just another wedding", and the Hudson Project undoubtedly helped make that a reality; the band exceeded our expectations in every way. We can't tell you how many compliments we had, and how fascinated our guests were after finding out we'd originally seen the core team in NYC. In a sentence, the Hudson Project rocks!

Thanks so much again,

Alison & Dan

The Hudson Project was AMAZING!
We had them for our 15th anniversary party at the plaza and people r still talking about the music. Let me know if u want to talk more.

I wanted to send a sincere and heartfelt thanks for making the wedding of CJ and PJ Steffen a smashing success!!!!
We thought you guys were simply incredible…refreshing, talented and most of all FUN with an amazing energy! You guys really captured the essence of the party, read the crowd extremely well and put on a terrific show! Countless friends and family of the bride and groom kept coming up to us throughout the evening commenting how blown away they were by you (including CJ). Even our vendors noted it was the most fun wedding that they have ever attended, which can be attributed in a very large part to you guys. Please pass along my genuine gratitude to your entire team. Thanks again for being so accommodating and flexible throughout the planning and evening as the timelines shifted, and I look forward to another opportunity to work together with you again.

All my best,

We could not have been happier with your performance on Saturday.
We had high expectations and you absolutely exceeded them. I could go on and on and on: you totally pumped the crowd, you played all the right songs at all the right times, you learned every song we requested (which was so above and beyond), you were sexy, cool and fun.... etc. THANK YOU for making our wedding so special.

We would be totally honored to give you a reference or recommendation.

xoxoxo, Lauren & Ori
