The Clients Rave About The Ken Ulansey Ensemble
Bravo for another great performance! We’re heard nothing but rave reviews for the terrific job you all did at our wedding reception. Many, many compliments from all our guests – how great you sounded, how the selections were right on the mark, what a fantastic voice your female vocalist has, and what nice people you all are. It was a real pleasure to work with you – I’ve enjoyed all our conversations and sincerely wish you all the best ahead. You made our reception, and we’re so grateful we found you!
Our very best regards,
Nancy & Mike
Fantastic….you were fantastic! Everyone just loved the music. The true test, however, was having so many people on the dance floor in 98 degree-plus temperatures! Thank you to all. It was great!
Sue & Larry
Our guests are still raving about how wonderful the music was at my and George’s wedding. We were very impressed with how versatile – everything from Motown to Israeli folk to jazz – you all were. You and your band set different moods nicely and inspired us all to dance! Many thanks for the tunes as well as for giving me tips on wedding planning!
What a fabulous job you and your staff did with our 9/28 wedding!! Everyone raved about your talent and selection of music. You made our day memorable. We definitely would use you again and recommend your talents to others.
MaryKate & Chet
A special thank you for superb music at our reception on 11/29. So many guests were delighted, elated, and complimentary – saying the music was GRAND. ‘Til we meet again….
Elaine & Jules
Dear Ken (+Ensemble),
Dan & I cannot thank you enough for the most outstanding job you did on Sunday night! The band was phenomenal and did an expert job at getting the dance floor filled! All of our friends and family commented on how “sparks were flying”! When we were waiting to be introduced, we were lining up with our friends and close family – all looking at each other, saying, “are they really playing Ben Harper? How cool is our band — they’re playing Ben Harper!!” Then it went to, “they’re playing Sublime!” “Mia, where did you find a band that plays Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon AND David Broza?!?” Honestly, it was a smashing success and the most amazing night of both of our lives! Thank you for backing me up (effortlessly, I might add) and totally surprising Dan! Thank you for being so accomodating and generous and just incredibly talented musicians! You made the night!
Dan & Mia
What can I say? You – and the band — were incredible, amazing, wonderful – you really made the party a success. Unfortunately, I had such a hard time getting off the dance floor that perhaps I didn’t “chat” with the guests as much as I should have – but the music was TOO good and we all had a great time! The ceremony music was beautiful and I appreciate your guidance with the selections. You really are the best!
Alice & Ron
Ken, I am just calling to rave….you are just as good as everyone says you are! You are the bee’s knees! You did a great job….the only thing that mattered to me at the wedding was the dancing. The most important thing to our family is the quality of the music, so that everybody just parties down. So my enormous congratulations to you! (Alice)
Yep. They’re still talking about how grand our wedding was!! You and your crew really set the tone for the whole affair. Ceremony and reception tunes were truly exceptional! Thank you, Kenny – you guys were fabulous, soulful, inspiring, raucous, and groovy in just the right measure.
Richard & Mindy
Dear Ken (and “The Ensemble”),
Words cannot express how grateful we are! You guys were absolutely amazing at our wedding. You were classy, yet entertaining, elegant, but energetic! You played the perfect mix of music! More importantly, you played it so well. You are the perfect band for any occasion! The father of the bride is known to be extremely picky about music, especially with bands at weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, etc. Well, he still won’t shut up about how great you guys were! I think the sister-of-the-groom said it best when she said, “It was nice to have a band at a wedding that is made up of ‘real musicians.’ Please let us be a reference for you! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
All the best,
Michelle & Scott
You guys rock! Thanks so much for making our wedding so festive. I wish we had more siblings so we could have another wedding. Thanks again!
Ken & Kathy
Dear Ken (and the whole band),
Thank you so much for being such a classy, talented, fun band! And, of course, for playing at our wedding. You made it so much fun, and so special. I can’t think of anything you could’ve done better. I truly mean that. You guys are just incredible. I could go on, but I’m running out of room. So again, thank you!
Deb & Sean
P.S. I will be recommending you to everyone.
Finally! A quiet moment to thank you profusely for making our wedding at the Cope House in Aubury Arboretum so perfect. I have been meaning to write you since we got back from our honeymoon to tell you how much we loved he music you and your colleagues put together that evening. It was absolutely perfect! The image of everyone boogying down together to your band on that fabulous porch is my most vivid memory of that day. Chris and I danced up a storm. And you were so great to make room for our friend’s rendition of “Sittin’ on The Dock of the Bay.” Truly – you were amazing, and I thank you!
All the best,
From the beginning, you knew what we wanted – music was our most important focus and you made it yours! There was a constant party atmosphere and the music was unbelievable! People are still coming to us and expressing how great everyone was. Thank you for all of your hard work! We had an incredible time!
Orit & Matt
You and your associates did a wonderful job at Heather and Jonathan’s wedding. I would say you did more than a “job.” You gave the bride and groom, their families and friends, a perfect evening. We all enjoyed the music, danced more than any of us ever thought we would and watched some real foot-stomping. During the evening, a steady stream of folks came up to us and asked, “Where did you find Ken Ulansey?” Thank you again, and I hope to hear a lot more of your music in the future.
Esther & Allan
Thank you so much for the incredible music on our wedding day. The music was so wonderful and festive. Our guests said that they had never danced so much at a wedding before. Thank you so much again.
Nick & Jess
Thank you for the wonderful music. It was exactly what we wanted. Thank you, too, for being unflappable when it looked like we had to move to the Hilton. I certainly needed steady reassurance at that point! Please convey our thanks to the other members of the group. You all provided an important part of what turned out to be a truly unforgettable wedding!
You guys were awesome! We were so happy with everything. You seemed to hit the mark perfectly. I hope you were enjoying yourself as much as it appeared you were. Any time you need a recommendation, feel free to keep us in mind.
Tom & Michelle
Dear Ken & Band Members,
The band is Hot Hot Hot! WOW! Thank you for the excellent job of conducting the wedding of Meena & Jonathan at Aldie Mansion 5/22. Everyone thought the band was fantastic! – especially my husband Andy & brother-in-law, Jeff, who are both musicians. Of course they took over giving you guys a much needed break after playing so hard for us. You guys (and gals) are the best!
A belated but no less heartfelt thank you for your contribution to a wonderful, fun wedding reception! Dan & I were thrilled with all of it, and of course your music was a key part. Many people have complimented your talents since. Dan particularly loved your solos on the porch. I very much appreciated the process of working with you before the event, and your versatility, flexibility, confidence and relaxed approach. THANK YOU!!
All the best,
We want to let you know how much we appreciate the contribution that you and your colleagues made to our wedding party on June 7 at the Jewish center in Princeton. The ceremony was perfect in tone….Cantor Simon was delighted with the results, as were we….it was both traditional and spiritual. And then, we wanted everyone to dance all night long….and they did! Your musical choices were right on, a great mix of standards, rock and roll, Motown, soul, and funk. I doubt there has been another wedding that featured both “Low Rider” and “Ripple” on the play list. The vocalists were superb and the band blew the roof off. We heard over and over that yours was the best band they ever partied to….and we agree. Your coordination with the synagogue staff, the Cantor, the photographer, and the caterer, was seamless and invisible, making the night worry-free for the two of us. Ken, we thank you so much for your personal care and attention that helped to make our wedding magical and memorable – for us and our guests.
Martha & Harold
We wanted to let you know that we were delighted with the music that you and your ensemble provided for Christie & Mike’s wedding. Despite the multitudes of things that did not go as planned, we received many wonderful compliments at the wedding and then afterward from telephone calls and emails. Some were even generous to say it was the best wedding they ever attended. Here’s a sample of some of the comments on the music: “How did you ever find such a great band?” “The band is fabulous.” “They are really first-class.” “The food and the music were absolutely great.” “We could listen to the girl singing all day and all night.” And on and on. Ken, if anyone is ever sitting on the fence as to whether to hire you, we would be happy to give them a nudge by giving you a mighty fine recommendation. Thanks again for everything!
Chuck & Elaine
Thank you so much for helping make our wedding fabulous. You and your band were wonderful. The ceremony music was classic and elegant. The jazz at the cocktail hour was perfect. And the reception music was even better. Please thank everyone in the band for us – all of our guests had an incredible time – and so did we. Thank you for doing it all so well. It was perfect.
All the Best,
Amy & Joe
Tom and I want to thank you for the fabulous job you and your band did at our wedding. The music for the ceremony was lovely and we had an amazing time dancing at the reception. We received so many compliments on the music all around that we wish we could’ve recorded them for you. We also enjoyed very much working with you before the wedding to make arrangements and pick music. In the midst of many others making demand on us, you were flexible and accommodating, which we greatly appreciated. If anyone needs a reference you can feel free to give them our names for a ringing endorsement. We hope we will see (and hear) you again soon in the future. Thank you again!
Illana & Tom
Thanks so much to you and the members of your ensemble for the wonderful playing and coordinating at our wedding, and especially to you for your assistance in the weeks leading up to our ceremony. Your suggestions for ceremony music were just what I wanted; your version of The Swan was beautiful, and your colleague’s original composition played prior to that was exactly what I had in mind. I received numerous compliments on your ensemble’s performance. It looked as if the guests were dancing for most of the evening.
P.S. Even my mother loved it – the first time she’s enjoyed the music at a wedding reception!!
Thank you for your fabulous music at our reception. Please thank everyone in the band too! It was exactly what I wanted, and I will (and have) recommend you to lots of people, because you are not only excellent but you listened to what I wanted! (And were pleasant to work with!) I knew the second I walked into the club and heard you that it was going to be great. Moreover, all of my musician friends (some of them very picky indeed) went on and on about how much they enjoyed your group. I do hope you get some other gigs out of our friends. I have a feeling you will. I will certainly use your group for any parties I throw. Again, Ken, thanks so much!
Dear Ken, etc.,
We wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding: pre-wedding consultations, making nice to my mother, being flexible about musical selections, schedules and phantom contra-dancing bands, and especially for providing absolutely wonderful music and atmosphere. The wedding, on the whole, was as much as we’d hoped for – due, in (large) part, to you guys!
You have our sincerest thanks & appreciation,
Nancy & Mike
Your gang was absolutely fabulous at my wedding. We sang, we danced, we had the time of our lives. I can’t thank you enough for your time, talent and consideration. We’ll recommend you highly!
