We are so glad we picked Fantasia for our wedding band! They did an amazing job. Everyone enjoyed their music and was dancing all night. We received tons of compliments about them from our guests. Frank was easy going and great to work with. We requested for them to play a song not on their playlist, and they were more than happy to learn the sheet music and work with us to make sure it went well. We are so appreciative of them going above and beyond for us. From our conversations with Frank, it felt like Fantasia is made up of great people who just love to play music. They were exactly what we were looking for in a band! Thank you, Fantasia!

Hi Frank,
Thank you so much for a great evening. You really know how to rock the guitar. Well Done! Collectively we think it was a great success. . . . I’’m confident the feedback will be “make sure we book Fantasia for 2017.” Thank you again!

Hi Frank,
It’s great to hear from you and thank you for following up. We only have great feedback for you and Fantasia. I think it was obvious that you were a hit. So many people stayed and danced. Our board members also gave us positive feedback for the band. I hope you had a good experience  
Let’s keep in touch as we will start planning the 2016 Big Gig very soon. Thanks so much!

I would highly recommend Fantasia to anyone. They have played at our fundraiser for many years and I have received nothing but positive feedback from the guests at our events. As the organizer of the event, I love working with Frank and never sweat the details because I know he will accommodate any reasonable request regarding the event. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me

Thank you and all of Fantasia for the great performance at our reception! We have had nothing but rave reviews about you. So many people commented on how nice it was to have a band rather than a DJ & just loved everything that you played. Among many others, everyone is particularly raving about “Start Me Up” and the Santana song that your sister sang.

I can’t really think of anything that would have been better if done differently. If I had to say anything. Everything was PERFECT!!!

Thank you again for the great performance. Dan & I will be checking your web site often to see if you’re playing anywhere in the area. We’d love to hear you again & again!

Best regards,

Hi Frank,
Hiring Fantasia was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding reception!!

Most everyone who went to the reception mentioned how much they enjoyed the band. I don’t know how many people came up to me during the reception and asked, “Where did you get these guys?”, “Where did you see this band?” “How did you find out about them?” Each and every one of these questions was followed by something along the lines of, “They’re great!”

The dinner music was fantastic. The set list flowed beautifully. The volume was just right. And the vocals and music were incredibly great!!

Anyway, my wife and I thank you, Frank, and all of the band members, for all the help you offered us through the process, and for the professionalism and ease with which it was to work with you. I can’t thank you enough!

All the best,


Hi Frank,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how pleased we were with Fantasia’s performance! Your professionalism and energy throughout the night more than exceeded our expectations. There honestly is not a single thing with which we were the slightest bit disappointed. If in the future you perform in the same manner as you did for us, you will continue to please many a bride . . . and therefore the groom!

Best of Luck!

Dan S.


You guys were just amazing. We keep getting compliments on the band, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you got more requests to do weddings out this way. I’m sorry that I cannot even give you constructive criticism because you met & went beyond our expectations! Thank you so much for coming all the way out here to play at our wedding. You guys were awesome.


Hi Frank,

I just wanted to thank you once again for the great job you did performing at our wedding on November 1st. We received so many great compliments about your band and everyone really thought you did an outstanding job. I couldn’t think of anything you would need to improve on.

You were even better than I had imagined and your CD doesn’t do you justice. Thanks so much for helping to make our wedding a great success.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future clients.

You and the band did a great job on Sat. night — reading the crowd and keeping it lively! People are still talking about it. Thank you! Great choice on the last song to cap off a fabulous party! I am sure we’ll have you all back. Plus, I will put in a good word at the Union League Club for events there.

Happy Holidays!

Hey Frank (and the rest of Fantasia)-

We just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you again for the great job you did on June 14th at our wedding reception. You guys sounded great! I’ve received numerous compliments about the band and the music that you played. A few guests told me about how they really enjoyed the fact that the songs sounded so much like the originals.

Also, thank you a ton for putting up with us and our whole first dance “performance”. Your version of “God Bless the Broken Road” sounded great, but once you kicked into the Grease song, you guys just shined! We had a blast with our choreographed dance and hope the band enjoyed it as much as we did.

As you noticed the floor was packed for most of the night (even the older adults were up there shaking their “thangs”)…and the mix you played was just perfect. If a band can get my 62 year old aunt who is a nun out onto the dance floor to polka, I know my money was well spent.

Hello Frank:

Our friends are inquiring about your band, so I have given them your contact information. You have truly made our daughter’s wedding celebration ONE FABULOUS DANCING NIGHT because of your music!! Friends said on a scale of 1-10, FANTASIA is a 10!! Thank you for the memorable dance music!

On and off, my husband and I play your demo CD, so that we can hear your great voice and exceptional performance. Fred Fox Studios truly captured your band’s performance.

Wishing you and the rest of the band members a great Thanksgiving and happy happy holidays ahead!!

More power to you!!!

Hi Frank,

Heather and I personally want to let you know that we thought you and your band did a tremendous job on our wedding night, and we have gotten so many compliments to prove that! You kept a lot of people on the dance floor the entire night! I mean, at times I don’t know if you knew me and Heather personally but your song selection was spot on…. much the reason we did not hire a DJ. Your group sounded full and you all did a great job multitasking the additional timbre parts.

One major plus to you Frank is your ability to stay flexible and loose. Upon our arrival at the reception hall, Heather and I were a bit stressed because we knew everything was running a bit late. You took care of it very nicely. We also liked how you left the details out for us to worry about when contacting the reception hall personnel regarding set-up and staging. We had so much on our plate leading up to the wedding that that probably wouldn’t have been good for us to need to think about.


Dear Frank,

It was such a pleasure working with you and your band Fantasia. As you already know the dance floor was never empty once the music started!

Thank you for helping to make Marty and Maureen’s evening so memorable!
Hope to work with you again soon.

Hi Frank!

You guys were GREAT! The first thing we keep hearing from everyone is how much they loved the band, and I have heard several stories that go like this:

Person #1: When is the band coming back on? (DJ played during band breaks)
Person #2: They’re playing right now.
Person #1: This is the band?? This song sounds like the original!

Thanks for making our special day even more memorable!

Aaron & Julie
