Wedding Reception - Indianapolis - September 8, 2012
I wanted to take the time to thank you and the entire First Impression Band for making my wedding reception a blast! I had several comments made to me by our guests about how much they enjoyed the band and their performance. I also wanted to thank you for learning the Kenny Chesney song for my dad and I. I know he enjoyed the song and even had some tears at the end.
I enjoyed seeing everyone dancing, even older guests that typically do not dance at wedding receptions with only DJs. I know everyone had a great time at our reception and that The First Impression Band played a huge role in that fun!
I will definitely be recommending the band to future brides!

Wedding Reception - Columbia Club - June 16, 2012
I just wanted tell you what a wonderful time everyone had Saturday night. The music during cocktails was wonderful as well as the music during dinner. Everyone commented on how wonderful the band was and certainly had a great time dancing. If I am asked, I will definitely recommend your band for events. It was so nice of you all to learn the song for the father and daughter dance. I especially wanted that song for the lyrics, and I don't think any of the mothers in the room had dry eyes while it was sung. Bob got such a kick out of seeing so many women wiping their eyes. So thank you all for playing that old song.
Thank your members for us. It was everything we had hoped for. A beautiful room and a wonderful band. We all had a great time.

Mike and I can't thank you and "The First Impression" enough for playing at our wedding! Our guests were raving about how great you all were, in fact, one of Mike's older uncles said it was the best wedding band he had ever heard! It was truly a night to remember. You guys were incredible!
Thank you so much for working with us! We will certainly pass your information along to our friends who get married in Indy in the future!

Thank you all so much!
Wedding Reception - October 10, 2010
And what a send-off!!! Love Train was the PERFECT way to end the evening. I won't forget that for a long time. The limo driver said we were the first couple he'd ever seen dance out to our limo! We just got proofs of our pictures back and it was so great to see everyone having such a wonderful time dancing. There are some really neat ones of the band too that you might actually want. I can send those along as soon as we get the original files if you'd be interested.
Thanks again for EVERYTHING! I will definitely be reccommeding First Impression to anyone I can.
Corporate Anniversary Party - September 25, 2010

Wedding Reception in Louisville, KY - November 7, 2009
I heard nothing but rave reviews from everyone who heard you play. I am currently working on a budget; and will be in touch as soon as funding is approved. You guys were terrific! I hope to work with you soon.
Eric and Jamie - October 3, 2009
Talk about a first class professional group of people! Jeff is as easy to work with as anyone that I’ve met and he always has your best intentions in mind. Leave your worries behind because Jeff plays Master of Ceremonies which makes everything transition extremely smoothly. The band learned a new song for our first dance and pulled it off perfectly. The quality of music is second to none. All members are very accomplished musicians meaning they play all styles very well from funk, to blues, to jazz, to rock to big band to ballads and they can adapt accordingly. They are fun, energetic, and know what to play and when to play it to keep the party going and keep the people on the dance floor. Young and old alike were up dancing and if they couldn't dance, they were toe tappin in their chairs. One of those bands that you could just sit back and enjoy. The quality of the band was all people talked about during the reception and for weeks afterwards. Jamie and I can't thank you all enough and please send anyone my way if you are looking for a recommendation.

Hi there, Jeff--
Give our best to the band and know that I will certainly spread the word about you to anyone I know planning a wedding!
All the best,
Wedding Reception - November 8, 2008
Dear Jeff and other members of the First Impression Band:
We believe a band can “make or break” a celebration, so you made ours the fun, joyful, exciting and awesome evening that it was. Your band is outstanding—both in its instruments and voices. So many people commented to us how very much they were enjoying you, and I hope they told you also! You certainly made a wonderful “impression”!
Thank you again for beautiful music that inspired us all to dance the night away! You sure helped us to fulfill a dream—
Wedding Reception of Anneliese and Brad - October 4, 2008
Jeff and First Impression –
Thank you again, and keep up the great work!
Wedding Reception of Becca & Mark - August 2, 2008
The band was absolutely fabulous. They were also flexible. My son-in-law is an amateur percussionist, and they welcomed him sitting in. When I forced my daughter onstage to have her picture taken with her new husband on the drumset, the singers grabbed her and she sang half the set with them. It was the hit of the night.

Jeff -- It was a pleasure having you perform on campus. Received a message from the President that she loved the band. THANK YOU!!!! If I can be a reference or help you in any way don't hesitate to contact me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
Fundraiser - Carter's Crusade - January 26, 2008
OH MY GOSH! You are fabulous. The First Impression Band offered an amazing performance for our black tie fund-raiser. We feel fortunate to have "stumbled" upon The First Impression Band. Our event had attendance of about 350 guests and I have heard nothing but fantastic reviews from our guests. What a professional, yet fun group of entertainers. I am so pleased with the event in whole, but I feel that the entertainment was the key to a successful and memorable evening. We can not thank you enough for a superb performance. We will definitely not only recommend The First Impression Band, but will use them again in the future!
With so many thanks,
Wedding Reception of Danielle and Jonathan - August 25, 2007
Thank you again for such a fabulous evening. I actually just got a comment today about how awesome you all were – which was one of many. We can’t thank you enough for making our reception so wonderful….we all know how important the music is, and we couldn’t have found a better fit!

Wedding Reception - September 8, 2007
Scott & I just wanted to let you know how much we loved the First Impression Band. YOU WERE FABULOUS and we got so many comments on what a great job you did at our wedding. Thank you so much and please share with your team that you were just awesome. As you could tell, we were a dancing crowd and everyone had a great time. Thank you. We loved having you part of our special day.Let me know if you want to use us as a recommendation, glad to help out!
Wedding Reception - September 2, 2007
I want to thank you guys for playing at our wedding. I knew you were going to be good from your demo, but you guys were phenomenal. Most of my friends that attended the wedding are musicians, and we couldn't get over how tight you were. The bass player was especially outstanding at times.
Typically, my friends and relatives do not dance. You guys made it irresistible to get out there and shake it. We have so many great pictures of our guests dancin' on into the night. Because of your band, what would have been a memorable occasion, turned into what almost everyone said was "the best wedding that they had ever been to". I can't thank you enough for that. All of our guests had positive things to say about the band. We hope that you get some referrals from our wedding so that my wife and I can come see you again!
Wedding July - 28, 2007
Jeff, Just a note to thank you and your band for making John and Kristen's wedding celebration so perfect. It was uncanny, with the few contacts we had made with you beforehand, and yet you seemed to know what we (and the crowd) wanted. It was great to see such enthused responses on the dance floor. The professionalism and talent that was exemplified on every single piece played throughout the reception. I can't say enough about your singers, who were perfect as well. If you ever need a written reference, feel free to call on us at any time. I'm sure, however, you already have plenty. On the evening of and and the days that have since followed, one after another asked, "Where did you find that band?" We hope to catch you sometime in the near future when I am able to just sit down, relax, and enjoy your sounds. Maybe you'll get another wedding up this way that I can crash :). My only regret was that my father-in-law wasn't there to hear YOUR "special" version of his favorite song. ( He is starting to feel much better now). I'M SURE HE WOULD HAVE LOVED IT!! My best to all of you!!

Wedding Reception - May 4, 2007
I wanted to let you know again how AWESOME you guys were at Kelly's wedding. The band and the music made it so complete. I thought it was an awesome wedding from the start of the prelude to the final song of the night. Our family and friends all thought it was awesome, too! Please let the guys know again how appreciative I was of a job well done and how meaningful it was to have you and the band perform at Kelly's wedding. I will always remember this and look forward to hearing you again in the future.
Best wishes to you always.

Holiday Party - Dec. 11, 2004
You were a big hit !! I had so many wonderful compliments about your band. Our owner thought you were all fantastic (as did I). You did a great job getting everyone into dancing. We had more people than ever stay until the very end. We would definitely like to have you again next year at our holiday party. Thank you so much again and we look forward to working with you next year!
Wedding Reception - June 5, 2004
We wanted to thank you for all that you did for our wedding! We still have guests telling us about how much they loved the band. So many people said it was the best wedding they had been to and we know it was due largely to First Impression. The music was phenomenal and you guys were able to work with the guests in such a great way! The Led Zeppelin song blew us away! When I asked about it I never expected it to be so amazing! Guests loved it too, another thing people are still talking about! I know it meant a lot to my father as well. Thank you so much!
We are trying to think of another party to throw juist so we can have you guys play again! :)
