"Just got back from honeymoon this week and am getting back in the swing of things - Sir, the band was great! What a great time everyone had. It was awesome! Thank you so much for everything. Your lead guitarist and the rest of the rhythm section were impeccable. Singers have voices like angels :). All in all, an awesome band! We recommend the Ovation Band to others for future events!"
- Brent M.
"THANK YOU SO MUCH! The night was amazing, thanks to you and the band and especially for letting me accompany you onstage! Everyone had a great time on the dance floor and were raving about Ovation! It is a night I will never forget! "
- Jessie & Joel
"We wanted to thank you for putting on the performance of a lifetime at our wedding! From the minute you started playing, there wasn’t one person in the entire room that didn’t turn their head in amazement. Your introductions were thoughtful and well spoken and the music was seamless and appropriate from start to finish. We were approached by so many of our guests complimenting us on our celebration, but EVERY SINGLE PERSON we spoke with said how incredible the band was. Any other wedding band we have ever seen pales in comparison to Ovation. You were energizing, entertaining and extremely engaging. We simply can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make our day that much more memorable."
- Mike & Meredith
"Thank you for such a great performance. You have no idea how many people came up to us (and still are) asking where we found you guys. From picking the perfect songs to getting the party really rocking, you were awesome. You can bet that we are definitely trying to spread your name around. Everything was perfect. Thanks again for making our night so special."
- Phil and Alyson
"Dear Marc and the Ovation Band, Thank you for your part in making the Higham/Drayo reception so special and so much fun ! Many people told us how much they enjoyed your band. You were all fantastic !"
"Ovation was outstanding. I just heard them at a wedding this past weekend and would highly recommend them. Their music selection covered everything from the 40's through today. They joined the dancers on the floor and really put on a show. I danced all night. Thanks Ovation for making Lilly and Frank's night a night to remember. I'm going to keep my eyes on your calendar so I can see you again! "
- Marie
"You all certainly deserve an "OVATION"!
Your excellent performance for both our wedding ceremony and reception was absolutely OUTSTANDING! You were all wonderful to work with. You made planning music for our wedding a breeze with all of your knowledge and expertise with special events.
Our guests thought you were fantastic! We were very happy we chose you and will highly recommend you to family and friends in the future."
- Frank & Lilly
"We had the privilege of having The Ovation Band entertain our guests at our 35th Wedding Anniversary party. Trust us, there is no other band we would ever consider having. In fact our son and daughter-in-law had The Ovation Band play at their wedding reception two years earlier. The outcome at both events was a complete success and impressed guests who had such a GREAT time. No one wanted the night to come to an end, but all GOOD things seem to.
I am so "souled" on The Ovation Band !"

"I can't find the words...so I will just say that God gave you and your band a gift that I am so glad you shared with us all. What a spectacular time we had Saturday at my brother's wedding. I have always said that the band will set the tone for the evening, thanks for making this wedding so memorable. You've picked up a few more fans!!"
- Nancy V.
"Thanks so much for making our wedding such a success.
I can't tell you how many people said that you guys were absolutely fantastic. Everyone had a blast!"
- Dom F.
"I just had to let you know how thrilled I am to have Ovation play for my wedding! Of all the wedding decisions I have made so far, booking OVATION is the one I am most excited about! I can’t wait to dance the night away!!!!!!!!"
- Lillian A.
"We wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much we loved the band. You guys are great!
This morning we were catching up with friends and everyone was convinced that you were the best band ever! That should come as no surprise since no one wanted to go home."
-Michelle and Matt
"I just wanted to thank you again. Our wedding was wonderful, and The Ovation Band really made the night especially great! We’ve received so many compliments about the band. It was really a pleasure working with you."

"I can't find the right words to describe just how thankful I am for the fantastic job you and the band did. I got back into town from my honeymoon Tuesday and my mom told me that everyone can't stop talking about the wedding and how much fun they had and how great you guys were...they all want to book you for something!! I can tell you that Chuck and I definitely had a great time...we could have danced all night (and I know my family could have too!).
The whole night was just perfect and you guys had everyone on the dance floor having a good time. I'm so glad we got you guys for the wedding because I don't think it would have been such a hit with any other band.
I'm so pleased with everything and just can't thank you enough. "
- Kristen P.
"Just had to tell you how much we enjoyed your music. The guests could not stop talking about how much they loved the music ~ you were all outstanding and made the reception more fun than we could have expected. People were saying goodbye to me and then a song started and they were back on the dance floor! Thank Goodness we found your band! We will see you around town :)"
- Tom & Denise K.
"THANK YOU for the amazing performance you gave at our wedding on the 16th. People are raving about you guys. A staff person at Firestone said you were the best band they have ever heard. Everyone had a GREAT time. All of your audience interaction was something people had not experienced before. You kept the party going and gave people some great memories. I wouldn't be surprised if you got some requests to play more weddings for our family members!!! Thanks again! We will definitely come to see you play if you are in the Akron/Canton area!"
- Jill S.
"Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. You helped to make the evening truly spectacular! We have received tons of phone calls from our guests saying how much they loved the band at the reception. You managed to get everyone out on the dance floor (even some people we thought would never get out of their seat!!) The way you handled every detail made the night so much more enjoyable for us. Thank you for helping to make it such a memorable occasion. We will be sure to recommend you and come see your shows whenever possible!"
- Buck and Gina Nemecek
"Your band is AWESOME, SPECTACULAR AND VERY TALENTED! We saw you for the first time at the Lorain International Festival and we love you! We'll be following you when you're in Lorain County !"
- Denise M.
"Thank you for the outstanding performance at our wedding! We just watched the wedding video and laughed at how much fun everyone had! It also meant a lot to us that you guys saved the party after our reception hall botched up dinner service! Thank you, we appreciate it and our guests still talk about the outstanding performance! "
- Christy and Dave
"Hi everyone, I just wanted to tell you that we had such a wonderful time at the Geneva Lodge on New Years Eve. We danced almost the whole night and every song played was fantastic. We hope to see you there again next Year."
- Laura and Bob
"Thanks for making our daughter's Wedding a very special day. When we met with the bride and groom on their engagement weekend eight months ago, they said they wanted a reception where everyone had fun. Your band set a new level of fun for our family. I am sure we will all be talking about this for years. Your band is a class act and well worth every penny."
- Father of the Bride
"I just wanted to tell you how great you guys were at our wedding. Everyone is talking about your band as one of the reception highlights. The biggest argument my parents and I had [prior to the wedding] was about a band. My parents had already selected two bands for us to choose from. But, one of our groomsman told us about the Ovation band. After hearing you, we knew you were it! Although it was a fight with my parents, thankfully the bride won !!! That night, after the reception, as well as, many times thereafter, my parents have told me how right we were to choose Ovation. Know that it is a rare occasion for them to admit when they are wrong. Ovation helped make ours a storybook wedding! Thank You!!! "
- Katie Ridel
"Saw your band play at The Fireplace in Youngstown. YOU ROCK!!!."
- Kathy K.
"You guys were amazing!!! I think this story sums it up perfectly: My parents’ friends are social people, get out a lot and have a great marriage, too. But, they have not danced together in 14 years. They danced the entire night because of you and the band. I truly believe that music makes a party, and people are calling our wedding the “wedding of the century”!!!!! We have received an endless amount of phone calls about the band. I have never seen a dance floor packed the entire night like that. You guys made my dream wedding a reality. Joe and I enjoyed every minute. The way you guys transitioned from a jazzy cocktail hour to dinner music to dancing was unbelievable. You were such a pleasure to work with that night, too. Everything (cake cutting, intros, toast announcement, etc., etc. was so smooth). My only complaint is that it had to end. I think you guys could have kept people dancing until the sun came up."
- Jami and Joe
"Thanks again for everything - you guys were more than great - you were fab. You have a new fan base here in Pittsburgh. Thanks again for your professionalism and great music. You guys and gal made the night special!"
- Brian and Amy
"On Behalf of the Cleveland Clinic Health System and the Employee Activities Committee, I would like to thank you for the outstanding entertainment your band provides for our annual Service Awards Event. Your performance and professionalism are always consistent and very entertaining to our culture here at the Cleveland Clinic. We appreciate the energy you put into each and every performance and the interaction from your band with our honorees, management staff, and guests. These qualities and so many more are what make you the best band that the Cleveland Clinic has had the pleasure of working with. You guys (and girl) are awesome!!! Again, thanks for another fantastic year and we look forward to working with you for this year's event. Take care and please keep in touch."
- Joanne Huffman, Employee Activities Coordinator
"WOW! What a Band! You have the dance floor packed all night. Totally professional from top to bottom. You are first on our list of recommendations."
- Pat Butto and the Party People
"Working with Marc was so great that I knew the evening would be perfect and that's exactly what it was. Marc even called me the day after the wedding to make sure everything was ok. Whenever we see our family, the FIRST thing they bring up is our Daughter's wedding. We are already planning another party up here in Michigan. Thank you for making our night special."
- Mr. and Mrs. Boll, Cummins Engines

- Jess & CC Berg
"I was at the Oyster/Friend wedding in Alliance, Ohio this past Sunday. One word for this group...AWESOME. After you all left, everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed listing and dancing to your music....yes please, add me to your mailing list. I live in Martinsburg, WV but it sure would be worth the trip! Thanks"
- Cindy
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you again. You guys did a phenomenal job at our wedding on Sept. 10th. This Friday when you are playing at the 356 Fighter Squadron Restaurant, in Canton, keep your eyes open for a bunch of us who plan on going to enjoy the show. Russ and I both believe in supporting local musicians. Best wishes to the whole band."
- Holly and Russ
"Impressed with Ovation's performance on Saturday, Jan. 20. I can't wait for another appearance to Canton or a local area. The showmanship and energy level was certainly felt! Thanks for making a dismal evening ecstatic. You put laughter and smiles on our faces."
