High Definition Band

Why book High Definition Band?

Yes, High Definition plays weddings & parties. But, we are not your typical wedding band! High Definition is an eight member band comprised of Grammy nominated, studio caliber, national touring, music school/college trained, enthusiastic musicians. Yes, we can play all the dance favorites plus 100's of others. The key is entertaining, wowing the audience! Members of High Definition have the experience of performing at many national venues were being entertaining and talented is the criteria. When people hire HDB, they can't believe that they will have a the talents of Bob Father and Nadine Toma singing at their party or reception. And for far less money than the other bands.

High Definition Band was Fantastic!

The band was fantastic! We've received countless rave reviews from our guests. We had high expectations and the band managed to exceed them. And what a value! Most importantly, the bride and groom were thrilled with the band's performance and feel that the band was a key contributor to making their wedding reception a huge success.

Best Wedding Band Ever!

High Definition played at our daughter and son-in-law's cocktail hour and wedding reception at the Crowne Plaza Golf House in Lake Placid on October 29, 2011. To say they were amazing is an understatement - they had the dance floor over-flowing for the entire evening. Guests were even dancing between dinner courses. They played continuously except for one very short break to eat! I strongly recommend booking High Definition for your next party! We certainly would!

High Definition Rocked!!

Our daughter and son-in-law were married on June 1, 2013 at the Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown, NY. High Definition was amazing! The beautiful ceremony music was perfect and the cocktail hour music set the tone for the entire evening. Dave and the other band members did such an amazing job keeping everything on schedule and they played through most of dinner and then got everyone on the floor for the entire evening! The music never stopped and our guests had such a wonderful time! So many guests remarked on how incredible the band was and how professional they were! Our daughter and son-in-law had the most wonderful time at their wedding and they were so pleased with High Definition!

High Definition was AWESOME!!!

What a blast it was to have High Definition at our wedding. From the moment I started planning our wedding, I knew I wanted to have a band to get the party started, and to keep the party going. As soon as the band started playing, our dance floor was filled from the beginning to the end of the evening. Dave said "yes" to my every request--even the weird ones, and the last minutes ones as well. The band was professional, courteous, and so much fun. We have received nothing but rave reviews from all of our guests, and we could not be more thrilled that we asked High Definition to be a part of our day!

Best Wedding Band EVER

High Definition Band did an exceptional job providing wonderful music for our daughter's wedding. The dance floor was packed from the first dance until the last song. Dave, the band leader was very personable and the comminicated with the bride's partents and the bride and groom to ensure the entire evening went well. Their website has a huge selection of songs to choose from and they play all expertly! Nadine, the lead singer spent time with the bridal party to make sure everyone was introduced correctly and names were not mispronounced.
The band was PERFECT for Crooked Lake with a large dance floor and stage area for the band. They could not have been more pleasant, professional and talented group to work with. THANKS HIGH DEFINITION! for a wonderful time!!!!

Wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, The High Definition Band did it all for my daughter's wedding. Dave Perrotta is easy to work with. He was flexible about timing, patient with myself and my daughter as we planned the destination wedding in the Adirondacks. The wedding was about what we wanted. The band kept everyone dancing all night, The vocals were great. The band covered classical for the ceremony, jazz for the cocktail hour and rock/dance music for the reception.

The High Definition Band did an excellent job performing at our wedding ceremony and reception. They were talented, lively, and fun; all while being classy and not going overboard. They got everyone dancing at the proper times, but kept attention on the bride and groom. They were also very flexible and perfectly accommodated our requests... which was especially important since we choreographed our first dance, and were very specific about how it was to be played.

High Definition was great from the very beginning, such a wonderful vendor to work with during the wedding planning process. Dave made everything so easy and stress free. They provided very elegant music for us during our cocktail hour, and then played our whole Wedding Reception. The night was so much fun! We still get compliments on how amazing our band was. The flow of the night was so organized and just how we wanted it, the songs they learned for us were perfect, Nadine did a great job announcing and making sure all the names were correct, and they had our dance floor packed the whole night! They really listened to our requests, and just strived to make the night exactly how we wanted it......and they made our night a dream come true! It is obvious that they really care about the people they work with. We would highly recommend High Definition to anyone planning an upcoming event! Thank you again High Definition!

One of our best wedding planning choices!

High Definition was an excellent choice for our wedding. Having a band (instead of a DJ) was one of my high-priority items, and I don't regret it! Dave was really great to work with leading up to the wedding. He helped me plan out the schedule of events and was very kind the whole time, reminding me that I could have it how I wanted it since it was my special occasion. During the wedding, Nadine did a great job as Master of Ceremonies, double checking that she had the wedding party announcements absolutely correct.

The band was flexible with on-the-fly changes, and fabulous at keeping the energy up. They followed the crowd's energy. For example, if the crowd was still dancing a lot, they didn't throw in a slow song and kill the buzz. They knew when to play which songs. And they played them really well! They even let one of our friends who is a talented singer join them on stage for a song.

The next day, all our friends commented on how fun the wedding was and how great the band was. I think those two things are certainly connected!

The investment we paid for High Definition was more than worth the value it brought to our wedding celebration.

Exceeded every expectation!

We booked High Definition Band for our October 29, 2011 wedding in Lake Placid, NY. Having listened to some samples and reading reviews online, we knew that the Band would deliver, but we had no idea just how fantastic they would be. Within moments of the Band starting to play, our guests were up dancing, and the party never stopped until the final song; how could it - each time the Band finished one song, they rolled into another one that you just couldn't miss!
It is also worth noting that Dave and the Band were a pleasure to work with in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, being incredibly flexible with our musical requests and helping us to figure out details such as the timing of the evening. On the night of the reception, the Band played a critical role in helping the event to "flow". In fact, one of my guests thought that one of the band members was a wedding planner, she was so on the ball!
In short, we could not have been more pleased with our decision to book High Definition Band.

AMAZING!!!

When we were planning our wedding my then husband to be had only one request - a live band. I had been to a lot of weddings but never a wedding with a live band and was extremely nervous about this. We did extensive research on all of the bands in the area, found a few we liked and polled a few people - unanimously after hearing them they all said go with High Definition. Once we contacted Dave, all of my nervousness went away. He was fantastic at making me feel like #1 he knew what he was doing and #2 what we wanted was extremely important to the band. Leading up to the wedding there was clear communication and I knew exactly what to expect. On our wedding day I was blown away! Guests raved about them all night and still to this day are commenting on how great the band was. I was touched that although they were hard at work and doing an amazing job - Dave and Nadine checked in with us multiple times throughout the night to see if there was anything we wanted. High Definition exceeded all of my expectations! Don't hesitate to book these guys - it will make for an unforgettable event!!!!

High Definitions did a tremendous job for our reception. They were very flexible with our requests for the evening, including learning a few songs that we asked them to play. The announcing was quite professional and well-done. The music complimented with the flow of the reception, from dinner to cake-cutting to dancing. The band sounds absolutely amazing with every type of music they play. They are each incredibly talented, including vocalists. The dance floor was packed all night, and the party could have gone on to the wee hours of the morning. This band made the evening, and this compliment has echoed through all of our guests.

I was the groom. The first thing my father said to me at the reception was not "congratulations, son." He said, "this band you booked is kickin'!" My father doesn't use the word "Kickin'" but he sure loves to dance with my mom.

Every generation can appreciate this group's talent and musical poise. They were friendly, prompt, well-paced and fun. If I were to marry my wife again, I would book High Definition.

Meeting and Exceeding Expectations

We couldn't be happier with how our experience with High Definition turned out. They were incredibly easy to work with leading up to the wedding and knew exactly what questions to ask to make sure everyone was constantly on the same page. They not only played all the songs we requested from their list, but also learned a couple covers for us and performed those wonderfully.

They got literally everyone at our wedding up onto the dance floor and managed to keep everyone there for the duration of the reception!

The number one response we received from guests was that High Definition was the best wedding band they'd ever seen and that they had a blast dancing to their music.

I didn't have to think twice about any of their choices and they gave us one of the most memorable wedding closers that I can think of. And, they were available for our ceremony, which was great - played all of the songs we wanted! Plus, very affordable for our special day!

I'm glad that we chose High Definition for our daughter's wedding. The variety of music that was played kept everyone on the dance floor. The musicians were all easy to work with. They learned songs for our daughter's wedding without any hesitation and did them very well. We asked them for advice on choosing a particular song, and they offered their opinion. Nadine coordinated the bridal party before announcing and then announced them clearly and professionally. The group worked with us in the other events during the reception, such as cake cutting, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, garter, bouquet. The band was accommodating in doing any requests made and kept the guests dancing all night long. I highly recommend live music from a band as opposed to a DJ. You never get the full effect from a DJ. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the variety of music that they performed. We received so many compliments on how great the band was. After all, music makes a wedding. I would highly recommend High Definition to anyone who is having a wedding, party, etc. They make the party and know exactly what songs keep the dancers on the dance floor.

Review by Kristina N.

I will be completely honest. First off, my husband was adamant about having a band rather than a D.J. at our reception. When we started to research bands in our area, the rates were much higher than we could afford. Somehow, we came across a pamphlet for High Definition. When I called Dave to get the rates, I was in shock and immediately skeptical. High Definition was head and shoulders less expensive than the other bands. Dave addressed these concerns and assured me that they were not in this business for the money, they just love what they do. To further prove to my husband and I, Dave invited us (with the permission of the couple) to watch them in action at a wedding. We were shocked, the band was awesome!! We booked High Definition very soon after to play during our cocktail hour and the entire reception. Dave met with us numerous times to plan for our big day. This was extremely comforting to my husband and I (in retrospect b/c during planning you are so busy) because on our wedding day, it was like we had known Dave forever, everything felt perfect!! The band even learned 3 songs for us!! Beyond accommodating! Honestly, there are not enough praises to give this group! All of our wedding guests were shocked!! They are still talking about how great the music was! One more thing to say – I don’t think there was a moment when someone was not on the dance floor, even during dinner!! They were awesome!!! I 100% recommend this band!! If you have any questions or want to see pictures or video, contact Dave. He can get in touch with us.

High Definition blew our minds away! We hired them for our wedding ceremony which was held on the Adirondac boat on Lake George. Dave also played at our ceremony in Bolton Landing and it was just beautiful! He definitely went out of his way to make the ceremony very special for us and our families.

The wedding reception was unbelievable. Before dinner my husband and I danced a routine to "I Get a Kick out of You" which the band had learned for us. It was flawless. After dinner the music contined and we were all dancing the entire night, one song kept being played right after another. At one point I had to stop and wonder if they were going to take any breaks! All night and in the days that followed, many of our guests inquired about the band. They thought they were amazing and must have cost an arm and a leg. When they told us the price we were charged, everyone was in shock. We definitely chose the best band EVER for our wedding.

I would recommend High Definition to EVERYONE! Dave organized everything, was great about staying in touch and touching base every so often, and made sure to make our wedding so awesome. We can't thank them enough.

Great band - nice selection of tunes - I've seen them in the past and they have only gotten better with the addition of the horn section - outstanding keyboards

Overview

Our show / performance is geared to cater to the Bride & Grooms wants / dreams. We will take only 1 break for dinner during a wedding reception. We will play all dance tunes, unless otherwise requested. We cater our song list to appeal to all age groups. We will keep everyone dancing , singing and partying!

Our show will feature one of the best vocal groups you can find anywhere. We also have a dynamic horn section and a tight, polished energetic rhythm section.

What is also very important is our stage volume. We are committed to keeping the volume at a enjoyable level for all. Bands and DJ's, most of the time bring large PA systems with sub woofers. We have the best PA system we could find, no subwoofers are needed. This is an important factor in volume control. We guarantee that our volume will be just right.

We are committed to providing the highest level of service possible. We bring enthusiasm, energy and FUN to each and every High Definition performance.

Thank you for checking us out.

Good Luck,

Dave

High Definition Band

Additional Booking Notes

We also feature an integrated DJ system in our state-of-the-art PA system. We also have a wireless microphone for announcements, toasts, blessings, etc.

Cooperstown, Albany, Sara Toga, Schenectady, Lake Placid, Lake George, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, New York City, Massachusetts and Vermont are just some of the places we've traveled.

Our best advertising is our live performance and music. The combination of our talents and price have made High Definition a popular choice for weddings, parties and special events.

A couple client reviews:

Dave,
I just wanted to thank you guys for doing such a spectacular job! I must admit that I didn't know what to expect because I had never heard you before, but I was so very very impressed! You are all so incredibly talented! The day could not have gone better, and I always say that music can make or break the party. I am still hearing compliments about the band when I run into people who were at the wedding. It would definitely not be an overstatement to say that you and you band absolutely MADE the party! I knew it was going to be a crazy time when the dance floor was packed even before we were served dinner!! The venue even told me that you guys were the best band they had ever heard! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Dear Dave and the Band,
We wanted to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks for helping us create such a wonderful and funny wedding reception. Andy and I are so happy that you were a part of our special celebration. We have so many memories of all of the great songs and dancing during the evening. We often find ourselves laughing when we remember the evening. reminiscing about how much our guests enjoyed the great tunes and endless opportunities to get out of their chairs and boogie.

First off, we are so happy that the band was able to accommodate our wedding song choice. It sounded perfect. We also loved the variety of music and the ability of the band to make everyone happy with song choices. We still hear from our wedding guests frequently about how much they enjoyed the band. In fact, many guests tell us that High Definition was the best wedding band they ever heard. We were very grateful that the band was also able to accommodate our wish to extend the reception and music for an extra hour-we wanted to keep on dancing! Moreover, Dave and the band were extremely helpful and knowledgeable from the very start of the wedding planning process. Dave was always willing to talk, answer questions, and provide reassurances. All in all, Andy and I incredibly pleased with our choice of High Definition. They were an absolutely fantastic wedding band and a smart choice for anyone searching for a fun, energetic wedding experience. Andy and I would highly recommend High Definition to all future wedding couples. We couldn’t have been happier. Thanks again, guys, for such a great night and countless memories. We truly appreciate it.
Cheers and Happy holidays,
Chrissy and Andy Woodring

Dave and High Definition,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We had so much fun dancing and listening to awesome music. Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how great the band was. We will be sending you some photos of the packed dance floor. You played an important role in making our wedding what it was: Perfect! It was a pleasure working with you.
Thanks again!
Katie and Kevin

Dave,
The wedding is now over and my wife and I consider it a huge success. The energy and youthfulness, plus your extraordinary work over all the hours made for an extremely happy evening. We can’t thank you enough. I enjoyed your female singer whose range and abilities made each vocal section come alive. I enjoyed your guitar work and strat and only wish I could have sold you the best of my shop of years ago. The band was tight, had great energy with the dancers and the crowd, and the songs were infectious-didn’t ever want to take a seat because of the choice of songs. Good good rhythm, from one to another. If we ever need a band, you will be called upon. Take care for now. Again it was great for us and many many folks loved you. Also the owner’s daughter and assistant thought High Definition was great, they may contact you.
Thanks again,
Robert

Testimonials

Dear Dave,

I wanted to take this opportunity to truly thank you for all that you and the band did for us at the Lake George Club on 9/20/09.  The evening could not have gone any more perfect and you guys really rocked!  So many of our guests said that we picked the right band.  We had so much fun!  Perhaps Kara and I could go to see one of your sessions some evening?  We would like that very much.  It would bring back some terrific memories!  We're still wishing we could go right back to that day and start all over.  Thanks again for your help in making our day pretty special and best of luck to you all.

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. Michael Ristau

Dave,

Thank you, High Definition was absolutely fantastic! You guys made the party! Everyone danced and sang all night long. It was nothing but FUN! Everyone was raving about High Definition.

I went and saw a bunch of bands who were charging twice your price, I wasn't overwhelmed. A friend recommended High Definition, I thought because your price was half of some of the other bands that you wouldn't be as good. Was I wrong! I hired High Definition right away. You guys should charge more!

I also want to thank you for learning all the songs for us. You guys did a great job! None of the other bands were willing to do this for us. You guys were great, I will recommend you to everyone.

Thanks again,

Mike G
