This is the truth - the following (totally unsolicited) testimonials came to us from people for whom we have played. From Manchester, VT...to Martha's Vineyard...to The Hampton's of Long Island (we get some great gigs in even greater places) we've been blessed with the opportunity to play for wonderful people who really seem to enjoy our music. If you want, we'd be happy to give you their phone numbers just to prove we didn't make this stuff up.

"...We were always told that the key to a great wedding was the long cocktail hour and an awesome band. Don't Leave  exceeded all of our expectations on the "band side" of the equation. Arianne and I were extremely pleased with the performance you gave. Everyone danced until they couldn't dance anymore. I can't even begin to tell you how many people came up to us, both during the reception and in the 3 months since, that said, "That band is (or "was" as is the case now!) the greatest band I've ever heard at a wedding!"  You were able to play to the crowd (which was very mixed in age, taste, and style of dance!) and excite every last one of us - for that, we are truly appreciative."

"Don't Leave!" - Please come back! How can we ever thank you for one of the best times of our lives? You all created a musical environment that enlivened our souls and our dancing feet. Your ability to create mellow jazz dinner/conversational music, to romantic music, to down & dirty music to even rap made for an extraordinary evening and celebration. Your ability to connect with and relate to all our guests and the bridal party made for a most spirited and fun experience. We will never forget seeing our "men" dancing and singing along with the band, including the younger cousins with such energy and joy....We will remember June 15, 1996 for the rest of our lives and you all had a crucial part in the event.....p.s.. Everyone has been asking about you"

"...I'm hoping you'll pass on these remarks to the other FABULOUS members of your SENSATIONAL band. WHAT A GROUP!!! We are the couple who not only had the pleasure of enjoying your band at the Del Guercio/Neary wedding in Montauk but also had the lovely good fortune of having the chance to meet you all on the ferry ride home. I swear we felt as though we were old neighborhood friends of yours! THAT"S how you make people feel. What a fun, fun, talented, talented warm group of young men you are. What fun to meet you!... You are SUCH a fun discovery for us! Thanks for the joy you brought to ALL of the wedding guests, and to the Keanes in particular."

"What can we say...you guys are absolutely magnificent! Your talents are amazing! We wanted to thank you for all that you did for us on our crazy, but wonderful storm wedding day minus electricity and water. It was so wonderful to arrive at the Pond after an absolutely tense morning and find that you had taken care of everything. We can't thank you enough for that. Your music made the wedding! In fact, our guests are still raving about our great band. We wish that we videotaped the affair just to hear you guys again. We really felt you were behind us 100%...We encourage you to give our number to anyone thinking of having you play their wedding. We'll be sure to let them know that they are crazy if they don't choose you guys. Many, many thanks again to a very special group!!"

"Thank you, Thank you, Thank you . . . for making our wedding incredibly memorable with terrific music. Bob and I enjoyed it tremendously as did our guests!! Despite the weather outside, the Don't Leave Band was as sunny as could be inside the Wilburton Inn!! Our guests never stopped tapping their feet or dancing the whole night, thanks to all of you! Your talent, personalities and flexibility will always be remembered by the two of us. In fact, we're even thinking of having an anniversary party some year with you as entertainment again (this time, outside for cocktails!) so that we can relive the magic once more. The saxophone player also added a lot of excitement and energy. Thanks as well for learning "If I Loved You" for our parents to dance to! That was truly touching and appreciated by all. . . Every generation felt involved with the music!! And, we truly loved your rendition of "our song", "Love Will Keep Us Alive". Friends of ours will be getting married next summer in the Plattsburgh/Burlington area and we've encouraged them to call and book, "Don't Leave". So hopefully, we will see you all soon!! Take care and be well. If you need a reference, we'd be delighted to oblige. Hope your summer has been fun and eventful."
