Having enjoyed numerous Sunday dinners at Barnwood Grill, serenaded by the superb musical duo, Gomez and Sadlon, we hired them to play at our Rehearsal Dinner of 30 at the Marriott. They came early, set up and played beautifully throughout the dinner, giving us exactly the mood we had hoped for at this most special occasion for our family. Everyone raved about how beautifully they performed yet they managed to stay in the background so we could present the toast and socialize as planned. It was a beautifully enjoyable evening that went exactly as we had hoped for and more! I would most highly recommend them as the perfect addition to any special event! Thank you, Rick and Thom!
If we could rate Gomez & Sadlon with a higher score, we absolutely would! We hired this amazing duo for a 60th birthday party and our guests are still raving about them! They were wonderful to work with - booking was easy, they were flexible with our timeline for the party, and even played Happy Birthday when the cake came out. We highly recommend hiring Gomez & Sadlon for your next event. We will certainly be using them again in the future. Thank you for making the party so much!
Such a wonderful job at our wedding cocktail hour. The guests loved the music and we loved hearing it while we were taking our pictures! Thank you thank you thank you!!
We recently had a retirement party for our managing partner and wanted to do something a little special for the event. Gomez & Sadlon were recommended to me by the caterer and I listened to the music on their website and was very pleased. The event was 60 guests in a beautiful venue. They provided relaxed and soothing background music during cocktails and dinner and drew raves from the guests. Really added a lot to the party. I highly recommend them.
Love these guys! They are very talented! They play all the standards everyone wants to hear...lots of compliments all around on Mother's Day!
