About a month before we were engaged, we
went to hear Party of Nine at Shadow Lounge and were
blown away. We got home and I said if we ever get
married, they have to play at our reception. I was so
impressed with their range of song genres that I knew
our friends & family would just love them. Little did I
know, a month later came the ring and the proposal and
shorty thereafter came my phone call to Bernadette.
Bernadette's organized personality made the planning so
easy and reassured me as the days got closer that
everything would go off without a hitch - and it did! I
looked up at the dance floor at one point and could not
believe how many people were still dancing! My 87 year
old grandma even hit the dance floor several times. It
is impossible to stay in your seat while they are
playing. Our reception was above an beyond anything we
could have ever wished it to be and Party of Nine had
everything to do with that. We cannot thank you enough!!
We can't wait to see you guys again soon!!!
Sara & Bobby Picone
I can honestly say we booked Party of Nine
BEFORE ever hearing them purely based on the fact that
every single venue we looked at responded with them as
their number one live band recommendation!! From the
first phone call with Bernadette I immediately knew we
made a great decision and was beyond excited to have
such a professional, sweet, and energetic person in
charge of our entertainment. And boy they did not
disappoint! Music and food were our two main concerns
and Party of Nine definitely knows how to get people,
even those that usually don't, out on the dance floor!
They appeal to all ages and play a variety of music.
Bernadette was always available and responded extremely
quickly to any questions we had, which honestly weren't
many because we felt so comfortable that they knew what
they were doing. When planning a wedding it is a really
nice feeling to check something so big off the list to
stress about! They learned our first dance song which
was very special to us and sounded fantastic. Each
member of the band was friendly, personable, and so very
talented! If it's really important to you to have a fun,
upbeat, easy going band then look no further!!!
Lisa & Michael Kristich
I knew for my wedding I wanted to hire a band, so I started asking around and I
started to notice the same band coming up often which happened to be the Party
of Nine! So i went on their website and I noticed they were playing at a wedding
at Hotel Layette one night that I was going to be downtown, so I dropped in
there just to hear them for myself and I was blown away! After being there for
five minutes, I knew that they were the perfect band for our wedding!! I loved
Bernadette from the first time we spoke to discuss our wedding plans! She was
incredibly nice, professional and made sure this experience was as easy for me
as can be!! They played at our wedding June 13th, 2015, at the Avanti Mansion,
and I can't say enough amazing things about them. They are SO insanely talented!
Bernadette kept the guests wanting more! Their music song list touched on every
song you could ever imagine for your wedding! If things slowed down on the dance
floor (which they almost never did) they would play a song that got everyone
right back up! I had the best night of my life because of them! They kept the
party going all night long! They are the most talented band I have ever seen
play! I love the Party of Nine and I can't wait to hire them in the future! I
will also recommend them to absolutely everyone! Thank you again Bernadette and
all the Band members! You are all the BEST!!!!!
When people ask us how our wedding was, my
response is: We could've had it in a dark alley
somewhere, and it still would've been the best wedding
I've ever attended. Party of Nine was the reason. They
are the very best wedding band in Buffalo and we
couldn't be happier to have had them play on our big
day. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire wedding
and very few people under the age of 80 left early. If
you're mulling spending money on something else, rethink
it. PO9 is worth every penny. They play music that
appeals to all generations (be sure to request the
Hip-Hop medley, seriously). Bernadette is an awesome
entertainer, and is great at keeping things organized
during the months leading up to the wedding. All of the
musicians are extremely talented - they all bring
something unique to the table - and the horn section is
the icing on the cake. You will not regret your decision
if you decide on PO9 for your wedding day. You and your
guests will be blown away.
Brandon & Mallory
When we first heard Party of Nine we knew
they would be the band that played at our wedding. To
say they did an amazing job would be an understatement.
Party of Nine made our wedding! They had EVERYONE on the
dance floor. We have had so many people tell us how
amazing they were and how our wedding was the most fun
wedding they've ever been to. When they stopped playing
at the end of the night all of our guests screamed
encore! The venue practically had to kick us out. Of all
the decisions we made for our wedding, hiring PO9 was
one of the best!
Casey & Erin Murray
We looked at several bands for our wedding
and just felt we couldn't find the right fit for what we
wanted. I wanted my dance floor packed and I wanted all
ages dancing, I didn't want more people on the dance
floor during the breaks when we played the free ipod
songs than when the band was playing. I wanted fun songs
and just a few slow songs. After looking at 8 or so
bands in Buffalo, I realized I wanted a band with both a
male and female singer, I also wanted a horn section -
it just adds so much to every song! I found everything I
was looking for with Party of Nine. They are not
inexpensive by any means, but they are WELL WORTH, going
over our budget for them was the best thing we did for
our wedding! I got TONS of compliments from everyone on
my band for our wedding. All ages loved them! My dance
floor was packed the entire time and that's exactly what
I wanted. We had a great wedding and I think 90% of it
was cause Party of Nine rocked it out! Thank you so
much. My cousin texted me the next day saying she had
more fun at my wedding than she did at her own! Even
Aaron who was hesitant to book only because of cost said
we made the right decision and LOVED The band. I am so
glad I have 0 regrets with booking them and spending
more. I am so glad we went to see so many bands in
Buffalo and picked you and knew you were the right
choice for us. TO all the brides and grooms out there,
if you want a good band for your wedding THIS IS YOUR
BAND! I even looked at bands from Rochester, stop
looking, this is your band. Cut something else out
to make Party of Nine work in your budget, you WILL NOT
regret it! They were so detailed and organized
about the entire day. We loved everything.
Thank you so much Party of Nine!
Mary Lou Letina & Aaron Land
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! I am SO glad we chose Party of
Nine! We got married four weeks ago and hired them for
both the "jazz" cocktail hour (be sure to request Tim
Clarke...he's so talented! But you can't go wrong with
any of them!) and full band dance music for the
remainder. Everyone we run into since the wedding is
still RAVING about the band!!!! They kept the dance
floor PACKED all night! I first heard about them from a
friend who had been to a wedding they played at. She
told me that "Party of Nine MADE the reception" and she
was so right!!!! Bernadette is great to work with in the
planning stages getting our input on music selects,
flow, special requests, etc. You can even give input
into how they dress...casual, suits or tuxedos! The
whole band was so friendly and professional at the
wedding! Thanks to all!!!
Party of Nine played at our wedding in June and made our
reception so memorable! They are such a fun, extremely
talented band that plays a wide variety of songs. All of
our guests keep telling us how much they enjoyed the
band. Party of Nine kept our guests on the dance floor
all night long. Everyone was having such a good time and
none of us wanted the night to end! Bernadette was so
easy to contact with any questions or concerns and the
entire band was so professional. We are so glad we chose
Party of Nine to play at our wedding reception. I highly
recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their
wedding or party!
Megan & Joshua Waid
Party of Nine played at our wedding and we can't say
enough positive things about this incredible band! They
are extremely professional and definitely know how to
get your guests up and moving!! All of the songs they
sing are amazing! If you're looking for a fun band, look
no further! Bernadette is a pleasure to work with. Any
time I had a question, she would get back to me right
away and was always very friendly. We just loved working
with Party of Nine! Thank you again for making our
wedding so fantastic!!!
Stephanie Cardarella Tubbs
Party of Nine was the band we hired for our February 2015
wedding. I can't say enough positive things about this
choice! We knew going in that hiring a band was going to
be our "wedding splurge"....but people having fun was
one of the most important things for us. Party of Nine
kept everyone dancing for four straight hours. All ages
were on the dance floor for the entire night, and their
energy was amazing! We highly recommend this band for
your wedding and already have to a few close friends.
You all were amazing! Comments I got on the
party were speechless, amazing, best ever, band
fantastic, perfect! Thanks for being part of such a
special night! I would hire and recommend your group in
a heartbeat! As soon as I have an event, I will be in
touch! Again our thanks for making our party such a
success and really a ton of fun! You are all incredibly
talented and I am so happy we have you in Buffalo!
What a great time we had on New Years Eve. You folks are
second to none. You are all outstanding musicians and a
great party band. The energy of the band and yourself is
just wonderful. As I told you the other night.......we
have a group of 10 people who have quietly followed you
guys all around Buffalo and Western New York. Thanks for
sharing your talent with all of us. We love you guys!!
The most essential component to a memorable wedding
reception is the fun your guests have on the dance
floor. Friends and family will forgive the tedium of
speeches and mediocre food if they have a reason to
dance. Party of Nine will not only provide a reason for
your guests to hit the dance floor, they will make it
impossible for people to keep their seats. Not only are
they talented, energetic musicians, they are highly
experienced and consummate professionals. We hired them
for our wedding this past October 2014 and we can
honestly say after speaking with Bernadette the lead
organizer/singer for the band we knew immediately that
we would have absolutely nothing to worry about. In
planning a wedding or any large party, there are dozens
of decisions to be made. She was very thorough and
helped us with details we wouldn’t have otherwise even
thought about and gave suggestions to help the night go
as flawless and stress free as possible. Who should you
select as your band for any event? That’s easy. If you
want the best, get the best: Party of Nine. Very
Abby & James G.
I got engaged in August 2013 and I knew right away that I
wanted to get married in October 2014 and I had to have
Party of Nine at my wedding. Bernadette and everyone in
the band played 5 years prior at my sisters wedding and
I am pretty sure that is one of the only things everyone
remembers about that night. When I spoke with Bernadette
after I got engaged she remembered me and my family!
Working with Bernadette and Party of Nine was so easy.
They are flexible and professional. If you want your
Guests to stay and party all night then Party of Nine is
where it's at! They have music for everyone and are so
interactive with your guests. I couldn't have asked for
anything more... except to do it all over again with
Party of Nine!!!
You played a wedding at Brookfield and I just want to take
the time to tell you that you were awesome! I will
definitely recommend you to my future brides and member
Brookfield Country Club Banquet Manager
Party of Nine played at our lawn fete for
the third year this year. They really know how to rock
the "beer tent (garden)" Our patrons loved them. They
had people dancing and just having a good time. Thank
you, Party of Nine, for bringing life to our Friday
night beer tent (garden)
We cannot thank you enough for Party of
Nine being part of our wedding. From start to finish
your professionalism and talent were unbelievable!! We
cannot count the amount of compliments we received on
the band, you were phenomenal and made our wedding. We
hope that we are lucky enough to hear Party of nine in
the future we will absolutely refer you to all of our
friends and family. And lastly, Thank You for learning
"I've had the time of my life" it was better than the
original!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Adam & Jaclyn Cole
Party of nine was the best band we could
have chosen for our wedding reception! Not only is
Bernadette a pleasure to work with but they kept
everyone on the dance floor all night!! Even our
grandparents were dancing with all of our friends after
midnight! Everyone is still raving about how we had the
best band-one of my bridesmaids booked them the next
week for her wedding next year! We had a black tie
wedding and each band member dressed very nice also.
They really did a fabulous job in every aspect and I
would recommend them to anyone! Thank you party of nine
Lauren & Nicholas Salvatore
We actually booked Party of Nine before we
ever heard them perform because we heard so many
wonderful things about them, and we could not have
picked a better band for our wedding reception. Our
guests (and even the staff who worked our wedding) are
still talking about how incredible Party of Nine was and
that it made our wedding one of the best they've ever
been to! Each member has so much talent, and you can see
that they all love what they're doing. We wanted
everyone to have a good time and with the variety of
songs Party of Nine played this was accomplished, and
our dance floor was full the entire night! Having the
father/daughter dance song sung live also made the night
that much more memorable. We recommend Party of Nine to
everyone and will continue to do so. Thank you so much!
Michael & Kelly Amato
Party of Nine played for my in-laws 35th
surprise wedding anniversary party. We has about 50
guests and had the party at my sister-n-laws home in
their backyard. The band played all different genres of
music and every single guest loved them. We can't thank
you enough for making their party an unforgettable and
memorable one. Bernadette was very personable and
accommodating. My father-n-law used to play in band and
she even let him sit in for a few songs. My husband and
I had tears of happiness in our eyes as we watched dad
play the drums. That night will forever live in our
hearts. We can't even express how much that truly meant
to us! Everyone in the band was incredibly talented,
very professional, and you could tell how much passion
each band member had for music. I wish we would have
hired a videographer therefore, we could hear the band
whenever we wanted too and replay every amazing moment
of that night!! It was a memorable party that we will
certainly cherish forever! Thank you Party of Nine-you
all seriously know how to rock!!
Tony & Danielle Galbo
We cannot begin to express how thrilled we
were to have Party of 9 as our wedding band. In fact, we
booked the date of our wedding around their
availability! Our main focus when planning our wedding
was that we wanted to have an unforgettable party, and
thanks to Po9 that is EXACTLY what we had. Bernadette is
so on top of every detail, we had nothing to worry
about. Our groomsman is an accomplished singer and sang
our first dance with the entire band, which is an
amazing memory we will cherish for a lifetime. I have
never been to a wedding where the entire dance floor is
filled ALL night until ours! Because Po9 has such a
multitude of talent, they are able to play just about
every genre and time period of music, which kept
everyone happy and dancing. Our highlight was the 90s
hip hop mix with a special thanks to Mark on keyboard!!
You truly get what you pay for with this group—they are
professionals to the core and worth every single penny.
Our guests are STILL talking about how amazing they
were, nearly one month after the wedding!
Chris and Kristin Kacala
I can not speak more highly of PO9! Our
wedding was more than a month ago and I continually talk
about how amazing the band was. Bernadette was
incredibly easy to work with and made the night flow so
smoothly. Even when we had a timing issue, they gave up
their breaks and played straight through until the end
of the night. They kept everyone on the dance floor
until the end of the night. My guests are still raving
about how awesome the band was and I couldn't agree
more! I will absolutely hire them again!
Melissa & Jeremy Witt
We had Party of Nine for our wedding at the
end of February, and it was truly the best decision we
could have made! They completely surpassed our
expectations in terms of talent, keeping the party
upbeat, and overall experience. Bernadette was wonderful
to work with prior to the event in order to coordinate
the song list and details for introductions/first
dances. She also was very personable and on top of
things the night of the wedding to help things flow
wonderfully. We can not tell you how many of our guests
mentioned that this was the best wedding band they had
ever seen! Literally!! Really is nothing like a live
band to make your wedding absolutely perfect. They even
learned a song a couple weeks before the wedding to use
for the father/daughter dance and performed a surprise
song with the bride's grandfather, which was so special.
Thank you so much guys, it would not have been the same
without you all!
Alex & Lauren Pontikos
My husband and I were at the Tonawanda
Castle last night for Lauren and Alex's wedding. You
guys ROCK!!!!! Yes, we were up dancing. My husband
got the two neighbors up dancing during your Michael
Jackson set. We had a great time and would recommend you
to anyone we knew was looking for a band!
We recently had the pleasure of dancing
away the evening with Party Of Nine, celebrating our
wedding reception at the Hotel Lafayette, Marquis Ball
Room. It was a first class experience, from wedding
planning to the bring down the house encore. Bernadette
was our partner in planning and itinerary, and we are
grateful for the help. The full sound, musicianship of
the band, party spirit, and song selection put the
boogie in our party. It was impossible to stay off the
dance floor for long. Thank you Party Of Nine for making
our "Big night" sound so good. In the immortal words of
Mick Jagger, " It was a gas gas gas"!
Party of Nine played for our daughter and
son-in-law's wedding at Lafayette Hotel. They were
AMAZING! we never left the dance floor! They made sure
the party kept going at a fun pace - They played light
music during dinner and new exactly when to kick up the
pace! In fact, we asked them to play an hour longer
because the crowd wanted them to keep going! We knew how
important good music was to a successful party and that
is why we chose party of nine. We would highly recommend
them to anybody who is looking for a fabulous band and
amazing singer! Vickie Rubin
Thank you Party of Nine for making our
wedding reception an absolute blast!! You played a wide
range of music reaching every age group and far
surpassed our expectations. Not only did you sound
absolutely amazing, but you worked the crowd incredibly
well. In no time at all, everyone was on the dance floor
shakin' their groove thing! Bernadette, you were
incredibly helpful and straightforward and just
wonderful to work with. We couldn't have been more
please with our band selection. You helped make our day
perfect. We can't wait to see you in January at another
family wedding!! Thank you so much!!
Niki & Matt DiOrio
All I can say is wonderful, amazing, fun and upbeat! Party
of Nine played at my wedding and everyone was dancing.
Everyone was having a blast and there array of music was
wonderful and made the party last all night. Best band
and very easy to work with! I would recommend them to
play on any special occasion.
We could not have been more pleased with the
group's performance, they were all fantastic! Literally
every person we spoke with has heaped praise on the
band, many of whom said it was the best one they had
ever seen at a wedding. The band learned the
instrumental version of Jay Z's "heart of the city" for
our intro song and it was better than we imagined it
could be. The band really made the night special,
getting people of all ages dancing for the ENTIRE night.
Colleen's 90 year old grandfather was dancing until
10pm! Thank you Party of Nine for making our wedding so
perfect and memorable!!!
Colleen and Brendan Raleigh
Since our wedding, and
I've noticed one constant sentence that I say whenever I
am describing the reception to someone: "It was the
perfect day, but really, the band made the entire
night." Being a musician myself, the band we chose was
so important to me, and I am so happy that Party of Nine
was available on our day. My friends, family, and I
danced from the very first note up until the very last.
You can't say that about most weddings. I've been
hearing a constant flow of "that was the most fun I've
ever had at a wedding" and I will always respond with
"Right? It was Party of Nine." You can not get any
better than live music, and you can not get any better
live music than Party of Nine. I can't be any clearer
here: If you want your guests to have a good time - book
AMAZING!!! I am so excited that Party of
Nine was available to play at our wedding. Having great
music was a priority for me and Party of Nine did not
disappoint. Bernadette is fantastic and helped out with
organizing other details in addition to just the music.
Every one of my guests commented about how talented the
band is and they were all on the dance floor. You can
really feel the difference between live music versus a
DJ and it was worth every penny. Thanks again for being
part of our special night.
Danielle & Aaron Jerzewski
When planning our reception, one of our top
priorities was finding the right band...and we did!
Having already heard such great things about Party of
Nine, we had high expectations for the group, and they
totally surpassed them! Not only are all the group
members highly talented musically, but they are
incredibly fun! We danced the night away with all of our
guests, both young and old, and they are still raving
about PO9. We really loved the song selection and
greatly appreciated that we were able to provide special
requests in advance...it really made the performance
that much more personalized! One of our favorite
memories from the whole day was dancing to "Hang On
Sloopy," which the group learned for us. We also had a
wonderful experience coordinating the details with
Bernadette leading up to the wedding...she helped us
think through the specifics in a totally stress-free
way. Any couple who wants to have fun on the dance floor
should hire PO9! Thank you!!
Danielle & Andrew
We had originally heard Party of Nine at
one of our friends' weddings and knew that we had to
have Party of Nine play at ours. They were amazing!! The
dance floor was packed the entire time and we got
nothing but compliments on the music! They were the
highlight of the night. Any wedding would be lucky to
Mike & Julia Gengo
AMAZING!! Bernadette knew the in's and
out's of how to make our day incredible. She had great
ideas for how to get the party going, and the talent in
the entire band is incredible! I can honestly say at our
dance floor was packed all night. As the bride, I never
stopped dancing! We had more compliments about the band
than anything from our reception. Thank you so much,
Party of Nine!!
Kristen & Nick Trigilio
As we expected, Party of Nine was awesome!
If you want you and your guests to seriously have a
great time you should book Party of Nine! This band is
of top notch quality, has a deep play list and knows how
to cater their set list to the type of crowd.
The dance floor at our wedding was moving non-stop as
soon as the band came on and until the last beat. Just a
few of the comments we heard from our guests were "this
band is much better than the other bands I've seen at
weddings", "I didn't realize what a difference having a
band versus a DJ makes at a wedding" and "these guys are
We both agree wholeheartedly and can't wait to see Po9
in action again soon. Oh and by the way the band
(particularly Bernadette) is great to deal with behind
the scenes she is organized and helpful in setting the
tone ahead of time and very pleasant to work with.
Thank you for contributing to a memorable wedding!
Alison & Frank
Party of Nine also learned "Somewhere Over
the Rainbow" for our bridal party dance. Bernadette gave
Judy Garland a run for her money. The whole band is
extremely talented and professional. We cannot wait to
see them again!
Katie & Jim Magee
We had an amazing wedding and we can't
thank you enough for making the whole party dance and
sing all night long! My family and friends can't stop
raving about the music and the non stop fun and how u
kept the whole party always on the dance floor! Every
request and favor you did perfectly and made it relaxing
for us on our big day! We can't wait to see you again!
Katie & Jake Fahy
To be completely honest, At first when my
parents told me we had to have a band at our wedding I
was upset. We thought bands were only for the older
crowd. We listened to many bands before finding Party of
Nine, and lets just say, thank GOD we found them! They
are a perfect balance between modern and classic! :) We
wanted our friends to have a good time too, not just our
parents friends! Well, Party Of Nine was hands down, the
best part of the ENTIRE wedding. This band has so much
energy it got all of our guests out of their seats, even
the people we didn't think would dance!! From the first
song, to the last, our guests had a BLAST! The band was
more than accommodating for all our requests. They
played modern music like Lady Gaga and Tio Cruz along
with classic party songs! We made one of the BEST
decisions ever to have Party of Nine provide the
entertainment for the best night of our lives. Everyone
was anxious even when the band took a break! They
couldn't get enough!!!! We are so thankful so have such
amazing memories with Party of Nine on our Wedding day.
Thank you for making our night one we will never forget.
Erin & Shaun Morgan
Elizabeth and I just wanted to say thanks a
ton for playing our wedding. You guys made the party! We
had such a good time on the dance floor with all our
friends. We had numerous people come up to us and say
that you were the best band they have ever seen play a
Bill & Elizabeth D'Angelo
Thanks again for helping to make our
celebration so wonderful!!! I can't begin to count how
many people commented on how spectacular the band was.
You really kept the party rocking, and everyone had such
a great time dancing to the music. You are so
charismatic and you all so talented, I doubt there's any
band better in WNY!! You are the BEST!!!
We are beyond thrilled with the performance
Party of Nine gave us for our wedding reception!
Everything was absolutely perfect, from the
introductions to the amazing set list! Our guests had a
blast, and people did not leave the dance floor. We are
still receiving calls about how awesome the band was,
and what a great time our friends and family had at the
reception! Po9, we cannot thank you enough for making
our wedding day so much fun for all of the people who
came to celebrate with us. Our goal was to show our
friends and family a great time, and YOU guys made that
happen for us!
Also, Bernadette, thank you so much for the personal
phone calls in the days before the wedding. I know we
had some pretty difficult last names in the wedding
party, and we appreciated that you called to make sure
you had each and every name down perfectly!
Jim & Erin Mansour
Thank you so much Party of Nine for helping
to make our wedding reception perfect! Bernadette
arranged all the details for the wedding reception, such
as, when to have our introductions, cut the cake, and
what songs would keep everyone on the dance floor. It
was like having a wedding planner! The music was
wonderful. The band played perfectly all night. Our
guests commented on how there wasn’t one bad note all
night. They played fantastic! Everyone was on the dance
floor the entire evening. Our guests commented after the
wedding how they have never danced that much, their legs
ached for a week!
Party of Nine also learned our song “Songbird,” It was
more beautiful than the original by Fleetwood Mac. Every
member of the band was friendly, professional, and
extremely talented! I highly recommend this wonderful
band to anyone!
Brendan & Terri Rooney
OMG, WOW! We would never have had any other
band for our daughter's wedding. Party Of Nine made the
reception something we will never forget,nor will any of
the 220 guests that were there. You guys ROCKED from the
beautiful introductions you started with right down to
the friendly conversations we had with you all after the
wedding was over. The music was perfect from start to
finish. Your congeniality and presence were noticed
throughout the evening. Its hard to put into words how
special you helped to make this (our only daughter's)
most special day !!!! Thank You ALL from the bottom of
our hearts for the beautiful memories. We will be
forever grateful to all of you for making the day so
Tim & Char
Party of Nine is the most amazing band! They had everyone
up and dancing at our wedding. Bernadette is incredible
to work with. She is so accommodating and works so hard
to make sure every detail is perfect. Party of Nine also
played during our cocktail hour and they were so
My wedding was a few months ago and people are still
telling me what an amazing band we had at our wedding.
Every song I wanted played was played and boy did they
nail each and every song. They sounded spectacular and
made sure everyone was having a great time. Our wedding
would not have been the same without Party of Nine. I
have been to many weddings and no other band compares to
Party of Nine. If you do not have them at your wedding
or event you are truly missing out on an amazing
experience. I just cant say enough
about Bernadette and Party of Nine, they truly are great
and I cant thank them enough for making our wedding such
a memorable and fun one!
We love you guys!
Rob & Trish Mule
Party of Nine met and exceeded all of our expectations.
Considering we were planning an out of town wedding, we
had to rely on quality communication; never once did we
feel that we were “out of the loop”. We presented Party
of Nine with an unusual song and boy did they deliver!
PO9 nailed it. PO9 kept the reception rocking all night
long, there interaction with our guests created an
atmosphere that no one wanted to leave.
PO9 had our guests talking all the next day- no one
could believe they were just at a wedding reception; our
attention to detail and working with PO9; created on of
the best weddings of all time. Thank you PO9 for
everything! We look forward to working with you for our
Jacquie & Jeremy Hughes
Party of 9 rocked the house at our wedding!! When deciding
between a band and a DJ for the wedding we went to see
PO9 at Froghair on Transit Road and we were hooked!!
From Coldplay to Earth Wind and Fire, they play it all!!
Our dance floor was packed at the wedding from the kids
to the adults!! There were people on the dance floor
that I haven't seen dance in years!! Bernadette even
came out into the crowd and sang with us and our guests.
They were very interactive and when we chanted for an
encore they stayed and played a few more songs and the
crowd loved it!
Bernadette is extremely friendly and
professional and I had so much fun with her planning all
of the details! She did everything from announce the
parents and bridal party to special birthday
announcements and rocking out with the band. I wish I
could go back and party with them all over again. People
are still raving about our band and so are we. My
husband and I were really impressed and we would
recommend PO9 to anyone who wants to have the best
wedding reception ever!! Words don't express our
gratitude... you guys were awesome! Thanks again!! We
loved you guys!!!

My friends, Sara and Anthony, had Party of Nine
perform at their wedding in September 2010. I loved
them, so my fiancé and I decided to book them for our
wedding, which took place on August 20, 2011. Words
cannot describe the performance that Party of Nine gave
us on our wedding night. We loved every single minute of
it. They played our first dance, Unchained Melody, which
was incredibly romantic. I was beaming through the whole
dance! The dance floor was completely packed the entire
night. They played all of our favorites: Livin’on a
Prayer, Don’t Stop Believing, Sweet Caroline, Love
Shack, and of course, the infamous Michael Jackson
Medley, which lasted thirteen minutes!
treat was Rolling in the Deep by Adele, which they had
recently learned. My cousin’s husband, Dave, thought the
song 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago was a recording- he figured
the band was on a break. When he turned around and saw
Party of Nine jamming, he was astounded- he said his jaw
dropped! They sounded so perfect he thought it was a CD!
Party of Nine is also amazing at getting the party
started. Bernadette, the lead singer, was such a crowd
pleaser! People loved her! She is also amazing to work
with and a great person. When Party of Nine came back
from their break, the saxophonist came down on the dance
floor and played for us while we slow danced around him!
It was so cool! However, the most magical moment of the
entire reception was the last song. We had asked Party
of Nine to learn I Get By With a Little Help From My
Friends (the Joe Cocker rendition). They absolutely
owned that song. It sounded AMAZING. I can’t describe
the emotions running through me at that time. All of our
friends were surrounding us on the dance floor while
Bernadette and the guys belted out the lyrics. It was so
perfect and it was the moment I had always hoped for.
I wanted a memorable, wonderful last song and Party of
Nine delivered. I will never forget it! My mother
described Party of Nine as “superb”, and my sister said
that they were by far the best band we could have found.
You will NOT be sorry if you book this band! Many thanks
to Party of Nine, the night would not have been the same
without your amazing talent.
Stephanie & John Wager
Bernadette and the rest of Party of Nine are seriously
AMAZING! Aside from exchanging wedding vows, hiring them
was the absolute best wedding decision we made. They had
the entire dance floor packed all night, and when our
guest shouted for "Free Bird" the band delivered.
Everyone was so impressed with how much they rocked out.
From the start of the night straight through midnight
they keep the party going... everyone wanted an encore
and we got it! They are truly an amazing band who loves
what they do and does it great. Easy to work with,
professional and so much fun I can hardly stand it. I
don't have enough wonderful words to describe how
satisfied we were with PO9. They made our wedding
reception a night to remember. I will be recommending
them always!! Thanks so much to Bernadette and the rest
of the band. That was one hell of a party!
Sarah Perrino Nicholson
Bernadette, I want to personally thank you for the most
magical night you gave my bride and groom, Sara and Matt
with your music. You put on an incredible show for my
event and accommodated us in every way. The guests said
that your music was AMAZING and as you know, you had
them cheering for more! Not an open spot on the dance
floor all evening!!! I truly have never been so pleased
by the experience I had working with you and your band.
Coming from NYC, I can now say that I have a close to
home band that I will recommend to all of my clients
looking for live music. Most importantly, thank you for
nailing the song you learned for the first dance. Not a
dry eye in the 200+ guest count! You are all rockstars!!!!!
Can't wait for our next event together!!
Owner, Impressive Invites and Events
Thank you so much for an amazing night! You had everyone
up and dancing the whole night which was an especially
difficult feat because it was so hot in there! Everyone
has told us how amazing our band was!! We can not thank
Elizabeth Gage Bouchard
Thank you so much for helping to create the perfect
evening for Sara and Matt's wedding. Everyone wanted the
night to go on and on. Maybe Sara has a new career?
Thanks again you were wonderful!!

My husband and I live in Manhattan but we decided to hold
our wedding in Buffalo, New York, my home town. Choosing
Party of Nine for our reception was a no-brainer after
hearing them play during a holiday weekend in Buffalo at
Frog Hair. Party of Nine is undoubtedly the best band in
Buffalo. The band went above and beyond by learning our
wedding song (Sweet Pea by Amos Lee) and learning Piano
Man by Billy Joel to end our spectacular night.
Bernadette is a shining star with her energy and talent.
The entire band is professional, exceptional and
excellent at reading a crowd. We had allot of dancers
and high energy at our reception and they matched the
vibe perfectly. The dance floor was packed the entire
night! A big thank you to Bernadette and the band for
making our day as perfect as ever!!
HIRE PO9 & YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!
We had PO9 to play at our wedding reception. Let me tell
you it was the best decision my husband and I made. What
do you need to make a reception a good
party... good music right? Well PO9 rocked the house down
at our wedding! Everyone (esp. me) was dancing! In fact,
I never left the dance floor. They are amazing artists.
Everyone in the band is exceptional, all have there
specific part in the band and they can rock it. This band
belongs in the main stream, but thank God they're
here. Because of PO9 my guests said my wedding was
the best that they had ever been to!! I cannot
say enough on how great this band is. You have to
experience them for yourself and if you are thinking
about hiring a band this is definitely the one. They
play all different types of music which is great for all
types of crowds. I don't know if the PO9 noticed that
night but there was another wedding reception where I
had mine, most of their guests were on the patio
listening to our band.
Bernadette is very professional, her goal is to meet
your expectations, runs the party and is an awesome singer. If I
ever have a major party again I will definitely hire PO9. I just want to thank the band for making my
wedding the party it was really meant to be! We will
never forget our reception and it is mainly because of
you guys!! Thanks again!
PO9 was the best decision made about
the wedding after the couple's engagement. We were
looking for a band which would play lively dance music
from all eras which would appeal to all ages, include a
band leader who made announcements for us and got the
crowd on the dance floor. We found it with PO9 - we
couldn't have been more pleased with them! They are a
terrific group with musical versatility and a charming
band leader. You can tell the group enjoys playing
together. Bernadette worked with us to provide a truly
entertaining reception which was enjoyed by all.
We could not have been happier with the energy at our wedding all thanks to Party of Nine! Not only did they learn OUR song (which was perfect) but they completely catered to our guests. The energy was high and everyone danced the ENTIRE TIME. I can't tell you how many family members said that because of the dancing and the music it was "the best wedding they have ever been to". In addition to playing great music that everyone could relate to, our Best Man joined you for "Don't Stop Believing'"! One of the highlights of the night!! Our wedding video proves how much fun everyone had because of Party of Nine!!
We can't thank you enough for making our wedding perfect!!
Chris & Alli Burton
WOW... Where do we even begin?
Our wedding reception was amazing thanks to you! Since we live in Florida, but had our wedding in Buffalo, we were both unable to come and hear your band live, in person, before our wedding. We sent our parents and friends out to listen to you, and they raved and said you were great... but we didn't know for sure until we heard you ourselves on our wedding night. What an amazing choice we made. PO9 IS OUTSTANDING!!!
Our guests had so much fun, almost ALL of our 200 guests
were on the dance floor at ALL TIMES during the wedding!
I had guests coming up to me at the wedding asking for
your cards, saying that they've NEVER seen a band who
kept people on the dance floor all night!! Out of all the compliments we had at the wedding, the majority were for our choice of band. And not only were the compliments coming from the older crowd, but also from our younger friends. Seriously, we have never seen a band able to keep 20-somethings AND 50-somethings on the dance floor, together, for the whole night!!!
Overall, we had SO much fun at the wedding. The music was amazing, and it was wonderful that you even learned our "first dance" song for us so that we didn't have to play the CD!!! If anyone is
wavering on booking you for a band at their wedding or function, please give them my contact information and I'd love to tell them all about you. Right from the very beginning, over 8 months before my wedding, you were in constant communication with me -- which makes a bride very comfortable knowing that you are there for her!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You made our wedding reception so much fun. When we think back to that night, we just smile :)
WHAT A NIGHT! PARTY OF NINE MADE OUR RECEPTION!! The dance floor was packed from the moment the music started until the very end of the night. People who normally don't dance have emailed and called stating what a party and how much dancing they did because of PARTY OF NINE.
They know how to get the night started and keep the dance floor packed. Party of Nine knows how to play to the crowd, get in special requests and interact to make everyone feel special. Bernadette did an awesome job keeping everything organized, helping the night run smoothly. We recommend PARTY OF NINE to anyone who is looking to have the wedding of the year or any event requiring the best band in WNY.
Stephanie & Dan Lotito
All we can say is....WOW! You guys rock! What an amazing wedding we had this
summer. We had the time of our lives at our reception in large part because of you. Our families and friends are still talking about how great you were that night. We all had a ball! My biggest fear before the wedding started was that no one was going to dance. It was quite the opposite! I think all 300 guests were on the dance floor dancing the night away! We were sooooo happy! I don't think anyone left the dance floor all night. I know we did not.
Thank you again for being so wonderful and making our wedding an absolute dream come true. From the cocktail hour, to our wedding party announcements (we loved the Beatles montage), to our first group dance, the oldest married couple dance, till the very last dance.. we all had a blast!!!! You are all so talented. Thank you again! We can't to see our video and relive all the fun and exciting moments with you guys rockin!
Thank you so much for making our wedding a HUGE success! We will never forget it!
Michelle & Jeremy Barkley
LOOOOVE THEM!!!! Party of Nine played at my wedding and they were a blast!! Everyone, and I mean everyone, was up on the dance floor from the moment they came on until 1 AM!
Bernadette is excellent to work with- extremely organized, on the ball and a true talent. The whole band is very professional, and man do they know how to play!
I know for my wedding I wanted a fun party that would have people talking for weeks to come, and Party of Nine made that dream a reality. I cannot say enough good things about them.
Thank you so much for making my wedding a dream come true!
Just want to thank you for making my wedding night a complete success! Everyone had an amazing time and loved all of the music you played. I think every bride is nervous how their wedding night will end up, but after you started playing (at the cocktail hour and reception) I was at ease and was able to have a
blast. Thank you for remembering our friend's anniversary (they wrote a note thanking us for remembering it).
Thank you for playing songs you knew we would love. It was such a special night for us, and we couldn't thank you enough!

After planning numerous fundraisers that need musical entertainment for
nearly 10 years, I've found myself constantly looking for that one band that can fill two vital roles: engage guests and keep them there.
I have finally found my band.
Party of Nine encompasses all that I need to keep my guests happy, and on the dance floor. As Regional Director of a local nonprofit,
Camp Good Days, my primary goal is to raise money, a lot of
it... but I need to make sure our guests are not only supporting us, but also having a good time. Party of Nine made sure this happened. Their wide selection made it easy for the youngest and oldest of our guests to get out on the dance floor and shake their stuff. The toughest part is usually getting those guests to stick around, even after the break. Apparently this is not a problem for Party of Nine - the dance floor was packed from beginning to end. This is a talented group of musicians who know just how to interact with their crowd and keeping them dancing.
Lisa Donato, Camp Good Days
Po9 was the best wedding band I have ever seen... and we were truly blessed to have them play our reception. Bernadette is in a league of her own and the rest of the guys are extremely talented and engaging musicians. The songs were excellent (including our wedding dance, which the band learned from scratch) and appealed to a wide swath of personalities and ages. Our guests danced nonstop for three hours and have been telling us how much fun they had ever since. I would recommend Po9 to anyone interested in having a superior band -- made up of very nice people -- help make their event.
Matt & Sheri Lockwood
Our wedding reception was an absolute blast! And we no doubt owe a lot of that to Party of Nine.
If I may toot my own horn...I knew I had it right! We wanted a talented, energetic, fun crew that could really put some heart into the party. And that's exactly what we got.
All of our family and friends have commented how much fun the band was. The sound and performance were fantastic. Oh man...when the your sax player came out on the floor...SO much fun! The repertoire of music was perfect...some oldies, some swing, some soft, some to rock out to! And
you managed the crowd...your non-stop energy kept the party going 'til they kicked us out. Remember when you tried to say goodnight and everyone chanted "TWO-MORE-SONGS! TWO-MORE-SONGS!" ...not ONE more song, but TWO more songs! One of my groomsmen said yesterday "We never sat down from the second we got on the floor!"
I also remember at the end of the night when you introduced me to the band...They all gave me nods and enthusiastic thumbs up's... I could tell they really had fun playing our wedding. That made me very happy.
Also, as the host, I truly appreciate you being accommodative and proactive. It really put us at ease that it would just be taken care of.
We made the perfect choice! Thank you for all your hard
