Testimonials

Thank-you for making our wedding reception a party to be remembered! We had so much fun and everyone there was dancing the whole time. We have had person after person tell that it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. I am a believer that if the band isn’t good, the reception isn’t good. I told Ray that I wanted the reception to a huge party and Stretta’s job was to make sure the night fun. JOB WELL DONE!! The night was a huge success and was the best, most fun night of our lives. We were very impressed with the entire band’s professionalism. You did a wonderful job of engaging the crowd and very tastefully emceed the evening. Wonderful song selection and great energy. Everyone from 76 to 6 was on their feet dancing! Thank you for helping to make a wonderful and extraordinary evening that we will never forget!

Our group gave great reviews to Stretta. They were great to work with, leading up to the performance, and during the performance as well. The music was exactly what we asked for, even learning a new song for one of our executives. A great and talented band. I would recommend them to anyone
