My husband and I highly recommend Party of Nine! Bernadette helped us with the timeline of our wedding reception and everything went perfectly! The band had us dancing all night long! My guests are still telling me about how wonderful the band was at our wedding!

Party of Nine is the first and only band you should consider for a WNY wedding. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole night and called for an encore after the reception was over. Even then, people were so revved up that they hung around in the hotel lobby for hours, talking and having a great time.

Almost two months later, we still hear from friends and family who tell us that ours was “the absolute BEST wedding they have ever been to” and that they “haven’t had so much fun in a long time”... And to hear them talk, like 90% of that is down to Party of Nine!

Even before the wedding, we knew we’d made the right entertainment choice in Party of Nine. They aren’t just a great band, they’re great wedding professionals. I don’t think Bernadette ever took more than a few hours to get back to one of our emails. And because they’d played at our venue before, she was able to give us some really helpful tips on our setup and schedule.

I cannot speak highly enough about Party of Nine, and neither can anybody else. So, I’ll keep it short. Book this band!!

We first saw Party of Nine at my cousin's wedding and they were The first call we made once we got engaged (we even picked our date around their availability!). We could not be happier that we chose them to be part of our amazing day. Bernadette was fantastic to work with throughout the entire planning process (including administrative items, introductions, etc.) and made everything extremely easy. When I say the dance floor was PACKED from the first note they played until the very last song I'm not kidding - we had to break down at least 6 tables to make more room. People didn't even realize they took breaks because nobody sat down the entire night and the flow into our selected playlists was effortless (plus that's how good they sound!). We had tons of people come up to us during and after the wedding to say how much fun it was and almost every person mentioned how amazing Party of Nine was. They were a huge part of what made the night so much fun and I would HIGHLY recommend them for your next wedding or event!!

If you are getting married and want nothing but having a goal of getting people up and out on that dance floor, you must hire Party of Nine. My parents heard them previously at other local weddings as well as a lawn fete and had nothing but the most positive experience listening to them and experiencing them for themselves. My husband and I, living in South Carolina, at the time we had been planning our wedding, were unable to get home and listen to party of nine before our wedding, but trusted in the reviews and my parent's experience. I have to say, they were nothing but amazing. Bernadette is so sweet to work with. She is so organized and made sure everything was ready months before the wedding date. When you get closer to the time of the wedding, everything becomes so hectic and her way of staying organized and doing everything prior to make sure the night runs smoothly was so helpful. Their variety of music is good for everyone and they mix it up in order to get people on that dance floor. All of our friends said they wish we could have stayed on that dance floor for hours longer and it was so sad when that last song was played, we did not want the night to end. Frank and I would truly recommend part of nine to anyone for any event!!! They are amazing, and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding reception fun and so memorable. 6/3/2017 Hotel Lafayette

The Buffalo Launch Club held its annual Commodore’s Ball, the most prestigious event of the year with guests from around the country attending, so we had to have a top-notch band. Party of Nine exceeded our expectations with high energy music that made the event a night to remember! I would highly recommend Party of Nine for any special event. Thank you Party of Nine for an unforgettable evening that will be one of our most cherished memories.

My husband and I had Party of Nine for our wedding and could not have asked for a better band. From the time they started playing until the time the wedding ended the dance floor was full, their energy was amazing and they always kept the crowd engaged. Bernadette was so easy to work with and very accommodating. We have had so many people tell us they didn't want the wedding to end. Party of Nine is definitely our go to band!!

Bernadette and everyone at Party of Nine was great to work with. They were extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. With our event taking place in an unconventional venue, Party of Nine was extremely flexible and helped to make the evening a success. They tailored their playlist to ensure all our guests had a great time. Everyone loved dancing to their music. We would definitely recommend them in the future.

The band was fantastic! Your version of Loving Cup was perfect and so special. We really appreciate that you were willing to learn it for our 1st dance! Our guests raved about the music and performance overall. A lot of positive feedback about the song mash-ups as well. We saw a lot of people out on the dance floor that are normally wallflowers at weddings. Everyone had a blast! Thank you!!

Party of Nine is the BEST! They had our dance floor PACKED from 8:45-12! They play such a variety of music - from Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars to Michael Jackson and Journey. It was fantastic! So many people commented about them. When most people hear you are having a "wedding band" they give you that "good luck" face. Well this changed everyone's mind! I honestly forgot that real people were singing half of the time because they were that good. The singing was phenomenal, the drums, horns, keyboards... it was all wonderful! They even come with their own sound guy to make sure the music sounds perfect in the room! Bernadette was so detail-orientated that I was completely stress free on wedding day. I knew she had considered everything and she would handle any problems that got in her way. She was always extremely professional and super time-conscious. They only took a 15 minute break ALL NIGHT. The party never stopped! People say that they remember 3 things about weddings - the music, booze, and food. When you hire Party of Nine, your guests will only have positive things to say about your music! It will be a great time, guaranteed!

What a terrific band! They were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. They have an extensive list of songs and their execution is great. Our guests were blown away by the band and the energy on the dance floor was unlike any other wedding I've been to. They really get into it and feed off the crowd. Bernadette was very helpful in planning and performing introductions, picking first dance songs, and creating a playlist for the reception. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a one of a kind band and a lively dance floor.

My first experience with party of nine was at my sister wedding four years ago! My family is big on live entertainment and once we listened to party of nine we knew we had to book them! I just got married in August and I have to say my dance floor was pack from the second the music started to the very last song! We had an outdoor wedding in massive tent and there sound was amazing!!! Every single song was great! And people are STILL talking about how they have never had so much fun dancing at wedding and how great the band was!! I must say the Justin Timberlake remix is amazing! They please everyone from young to old! My biggest thing is dancing and party of nine truly made sure no one left that dance floor!!! I can't thank them enough for how amazing they did to make our wedding day the best day ever!

Party of Nine definitely lives up to their name. If you want your wedding to be a party... book the party of nine. The dance floor was full the entire night. They got the party going and kept it going. They were such a pleasure to work with and were very accommodating. Not only did they learn a special song for my son's first dance but my son and I chose a song to dance to that they already knew and it was definitely a crowd pleaser. I would absolutely recommend this band to anyone who is interested in live music at their event.

Party of Nine is hands down the best live band in Buffalo. We had the pleasure of the band playing at a fundraiser for my school. From the first song, the dance floor filled up and I never saw it empty. Their music flows perfectly, the musicians are tight, and they keep the vibe upbeat, happy, energetic, and FUN! Bernadette just gets it; her voice is amazing, ranging from Michael Jackson to Taylor Swift to Donna Summer, she naturally works the audience and is kind enough to chat and take pictures with people in between sets. The keyboard player sings Justin Timberlake "better than Justin Timberlake", to quote one of our guests. The sound is on point always, and the entire band works together to make the event a night to remember. My colleagues were talking about Party of Nine for days! Aside from being an amazingly talented group of musicians, they are a great group of people, and I would recommend them in a heartbeat to play your next corporate event, wedding, or other celebration!

If you are getting married, the only recommendation I have is to book Party of Nine!!!!! If you want your guests to be up dancing all night, then they are the entertainment you need. They played for my sisters wedding 5 years ago, and just played for my wedding on 7/30/16 (I booked my wedding around THEIR availability). Not only are they an amazing band, but they are entertaining and engaging. Music is one of the most important aspects of the wedding reception, therefore you need this band. They play both old and modern music to guarantee your guests of all ages will enjoy the music! After my night, I found myself saying "I don't know how you have a wedding without Party of Nine". I truly cannot say enough amazing things about them. Bernadette is extremely organized and responsive, and met all my needs answering any questions I had. Her communication was amazing. This band was the best decision I made, and I recommend you make the same decision when deciding on your wedding music. This band is worth every penny and will have your guests dancing all night, and shouting "one more song" at the end of the night. My dance floor was completely packed the entire time Party of Nine was playing. Party of Nine is the one thing you truly NEED to make your wedding a success!!! I can guarantee that! Thank you Party of Nine for making my day absolutely perfect and the best night of my life!!!

Party of Nine is soooooooo AMAZING! Bernadette hands down an amazing vocalist and "manager" of the band. They play everything! Old school for the older, and newer for the younger. Everyone is telling the truth when they say "they make the party". No lie I was on the dance floor the entire night. I unfortunately didn't talk to as many people as I should have, but they were dancing too;) Bernadette and the band are going to cater to you. I had one request to please play Maroon 5's "Moves like Jagger". My 6 yr nephew loves them. She not only learned and performed, but brought my nephew up to sing. He came up to me afterwards and said "AUNT KANDACE YOU MADE MY DREAMS COME TRUE". Simply amazing to watch my dream come true and here she was making my nephew's! Totally worth the expense because the performance is priceless! I can't Compliment or thank them enough! Fantastic band and one of a kind!

We can't say enough great things about Party of Nine. BOOK THIS BAND EARLY! My daughter and now son-in-law contracted Party of Nine without every seeing them perform, on the advise of my son who saw them at a charity event the night our daughter got engaged, and he grabbed their card and spoke with Bernadette. The Band performed the Father/Daughter and Mother /Son songs beautifully, both which they had to learn, their was not a dry eye in the place. All the music kept the dance floor packed. We received so many positive comments regarding the Band from so many guests of all ages, from 20 some things to 80 year olds. We had a June wedding and the band performed outside on the patio of our club. Even people that lived near our venue asked us who the band was as they could hear them play and were impressed. What a wonderful experience from the moment we booked Party of Nine. Never had to give it another thought, they are the best!

Party of Nine was the absolute best decision I made for my daughter's wedding. I was expecting them to be fabulous and they exceeded my expectations. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. From the first communication with their leader and lead singer Bernadette to the end of the evening when the crowded dance floor shouted "One more Song, One More Song" to which the whole band came back and brought down the house with one more song. Bernadette is extremely thorough, organized and professional. She is a sweetheart too. She did everything we asked her to do. Her interaction with the crowd was just fabulous. Our guest could not stop gushing about how good this band was. As far as the band goes, they are fabulously talented and just very nice people. Having a band with a 3 horn- horn section is just incredible. They were the hit of the reception. I have always said that a live band can make a party a success and with Party of Nine you can not go wrong. I recommend anyone who wants their wedding reception or party to be a success to forego the boring DJ route, and make the commitment to having Party of Nine be their entertainment. I can guarantee, your event will be the talk of the town if you do!

The Chair of our fundraiser (The Bucket List Bash) highly recommended Party of Nine as a new and fresh sound after having the same band for three years at the event. They exceeded our expectations to say the least! Bernadette, the band manager and lead singer , was AMAZING to work with. She was attentive, patient and most and BEST of all, organized, every step of the way. Party of Nine went with the flow of the evening perfectly. All of the band members were beyond friendly and professional. Bernadette was asked to make announcements throughout the night and did so with grace and thoroughness. The guests of the fundraiser raved about the band, danced the night away and were downright disappointed after they played their last song. I would highly recommend Party of Nine for any private or public event. We are in the process of booking them for our event next year and I look very forward to working with them again. I am positive that they will be a huge draw to get even more people in the door. Best referral ever. Best band with so much talent!!  Thank you Bernadette and Party of Nine for a great evening!

We used Party of Nine to provide music for my company’s 15-year anniversary party and we were extremely happy with their performance! Party of Nine is very professional, energetic and engaging, and they really got the party going. It’s obvious the band members are tight with one another and they mesh very well together. We were thoroughly pleased from start to finish. In addition, Bernadette was extremely easy to work with on the details, and very communicative. If you hire them, you will not be disappointed!

Some people choose to celebrate their personal milestones quietly and without fanfare. Not me! I was getting ready to celebrate my 50th birthday and wanted to do it in style. That meant music – and only the best.  After experiencing Party of Nine at a friend’s birthday a few years prior, I kept it in the back of my mind, that if at all possible, I would hire them for my 50th because they were that good. After contacting Bernadette and working out the details, we were good to go!

My party was on February 12, 2016, my actual birthday. Along with my special day came a major snow event - Western New York style! I am happy to say that despite the challenge with the weather, the party took place and the band played on.

Party of Nine made my 50th birthday one I will not soon forget. From my very first inquiry, I was impressed with the attentiveness of Bernadette. Not only was she professional and prompt with communication, she was committed to making my day as memorable as possible. Mission accomplished! Her attention to the set list was outstanding and spot on! The dance floor was never empty, creating an amazing party atmosphere. Everyone is still talking about how great the band was.

Thank you, Bernadette and the talented group of musicians that make up Party of Nine. Hiring you to perform at my 50th was the best decision ever!

If you are looking for a great party band, Party of Nine is the very best! We had the pleasure of having the band play at our July wedding. The band was and still is the talk of our wedding between our families and friends. Everyone said the band “made our wedding” and raved about the great music that everyone danced to all night! We had guests who don’t usually dance at functions up on the dance floor!! Bernadette is phenomenal to work with. She is helpful, accommodating, professional and simply a joy. We trusted her guidance because of her experience and knowledge. I can’t say enough about Bernadette and all of her band mates. They are responsible, talented, and the right choice of a party band. They truly made our wedding day so special, fun, and memorable!!!

What a great experience! I heard Party of Nine play at an Anniversary Party 2 years ago.. At that point I was determined to schedule this "Party Band" to play for my son's graduation party! It was a absolutely the best decision I made!! The band was outstanding! played all the favorite tunes and created an atmosphere of fun & an enjoyable evening! Bernadette has a personality that is outgoing and has a way to connect with her customers! She generates a level of energy and gets folks excited and wanting to apart of the fun!! That evening we met some talented musicians & delightful friends as well! Thank you for making Trevor's party so memorable! Till our paths meet again! Cheers!

Party of Nine played at our wedding in August, and they were truly amazing!! From the moment I first contacted Bernadette right up until the end of our wedding night, the band was as accommodating and helpful as possible. Bernadette truly took so much stress off of me the day of the ceremony because she was so prepared and organized. Their performance was the absolute highlight of our night! My husband and I, along with our families and friends, were on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. All of the band members are incredibly talented and their talent, combined with the wide range of songs in their set list, made their performance perfect. Unlike many wedding bands we came across, they appealed to all age groups, and everyone felt welcome on the dance floor. Our wedding guests are still raving about how great Party of Nine was and how much fun they had. We looked at several bands before choosing Party of Nine, but as soon as we saw them perform, our decision became clear. They are worth every single penny, and I could not be more happy with everything they contributed to our wedding. I can truly say that our wedding was the most fun night of my life, and that was largely in part to Bernadette and Party of Nine!! You need to book them! Look no further! (Also, the hip hop and Michael Jackson medleys are a must.)

As a Buffalo native living in Seattle, planning the wedding from afar posed its challenges. However, working with Bernadette to plan all the details around the entertainment was a piece of cake, thanks to her responsiveness, professionalism and expert advice. My husband and I knew we wanted to surprise our guests with a special choreographed first dance. We reached out to Bernadette for suggestions and she hit the nail on the head with a current yet unique song that was a total show stopper! Most of our guests were from out of town and everyone was totally blown away by the entertainment provided by Bernadette and the band. From classic hits to current pop songs (including some hip-hop!), all the tunes got our guests young and old on the dance floor. It's been 5 months since our wedding and people are still talking about what an awesome party it was, thanks to Party of Nine! You guys make me proud to be from Buffalo!

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!!!

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!!!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!!!

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. Worth it!!

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 satisfied clients!

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!!!

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!

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 for everything!!

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!

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!!

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!

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!

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!

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!!

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!!!

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 them. Soon!

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!!

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 have them!!

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 amazing".

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!

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!

We had an amazing wedding and we can't thank you enough for making the whole party dance and sing all night long!

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!

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.

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 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!

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!

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 Wonderful !!!

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 wonderful.

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!

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 Anniversary Party.

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!

Another amazing 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.

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!

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!!

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 work!
