"We recently hired The Usual Suspects to perform at a colleague's retirement party. This amazing band had partygoers of all ages dancing 'till the wee hours of the morning. The dance floor was packed and the evening an immense success. We witnessed undiscovered dance moves and endurance only made possible by awesome Motown music! It was an amazing party we will not soon forget!"

"Words cannot express how very thankful we are to your band. You guys absolutely ROCKED and made our wedding SO MUCH FUN! Everyone was saying how fantastic the music was and we are forever grateful."
Elana & Brian Jacobson

"We can't thank you all enough for the really great band. So many people commented on how brilliant the band was and you certainly got everyone up dancing. Having a live band, and such an excellent one at that, really helps make an event a success. Maddie and Adam's wedding turned out so well in large part thanks to all of you. We didn't really have an opportunity to thank you all for being so flexible with the times of your sets. I know that we overran and that you ended up playing much later. It was very kind of you all. Many, many thanks
Philippa & Christopher Lyons

"This is belated but heartfelt thank you for playing at our wedding - we really enjoyed having you, and thought the music was really great. We both received compliments from friends and family, including many of the other musicians present, on the quality of music/singing, as well as your stage presence! Aaron thought your hora mix was exceptional, and I really loved your singing of 'At last'. Our planner also commented that you guys were great. All the best! "

"We write this note to express how absolutely delighted we were with the The Usual Suspects as a band for the wedding celebration of Christina and Jonathan at the Museum of Anthropology.. Having 'found' you on the Internet I was apprehensive until my daughter Patricia and I came to your practice in the basement of the house in Oakridge when we quickly realized we had found The band. At the wedding celebration our guests clearly enjoyed all of the music, from pre-ceremony to ceremony to reception and then the after dinner dancing. Your music added so much to the evening. And it was all so much fun ... thank you! And a very special thank you for learning and playing Little Darlin' by The Diamonds. It sounded great, the dancers loved it and I know that Jonathan's family was really touched to hear the song played at the wedding celebration. Attached please find images of the band by wedding photographer Alana Couch. With much appreciation, "

"We first saw The Usual Suspects at our friend's son's Bar Mitzvah party and found that the band was just great! It was such a refreshing change to have a fun band that plays all kinds of songs everyone loves. What was really awesome was that the teenagers were up on the dance floor all night too. When it was time for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party, we didn't even think of looking at another band. The band members are flexible, fun and talented! All of the business was conducted professionally without losing any of the genuine warmth that is in the band members' personalities. There's no question we would use The Usual Suspects again – and again! Thanks for everything."
Leah Pomerantz and Mark Gurvis

"The Usual Suspects played at our two childrens' bar and bat mitzvahs. They played a terrific mix of fun and really danceable music. People danced and sang all night. They were extremely pleasant, flexible and responsible at every stage. I would use them again in a heartbeat."

Your live music and great energy filled the room and our hearts. We all left with great memories and sore feet, a good sign of a great time had by all!"
