RJO Testimonials

“To the Raleigh Jazz Band, Thanks so much for a beautiful, classy and fun reception! Our guests had a great time and so did we! Many people commented on the “great band”; in fact one of our friends joked, “of course Hayley, the musicologist, would have fantastic music.” We couldn’t have pulled off this great night without your help, so please don’t hesitate to ask for ours. We’d love to give you guys glowing references for your professionalism, accomodations for special requests and above all great music!”  Bob and Hayley O’Donnell

“Everything was wonderful. We were thrilled with the music provided by the Raleigh Jazz Combo. We really appreciate all that you did for our event!” Jan Mathews-Hodges

“I am please to say how much I enjoyed just being in the midst of such an extraodinarily talented and gifted group of musicians and vocalists. The Raleigh Jazz Orchestra is amazing. I was in awe! Both attending your rehearsals and hearing you in concert has shown me the type of professionalism all of you as a whole represent. Your performance made my day and rekindled a spirit I though was long gone. You guys are awesome and I look forward to hearing and seeing you all soon again.”  Christopher Bryant

“the Raleigh Jazz Orchestra 7 piece band did an absolutely outstanding job. Several people commented on the superb musicianship and we were all amazed at how great the band sounded!” Brad Sharp

“You kindly helped me to arrange the Raleigh Jazz Trio for my husband’s 60th birthday party this past July. I would like to engage the same trio for another event as they were truely outstanding!” Susan Rose-Pizzo

“I just had to send you a note saying how much I appreciate you and all the work you did to make the reception a great success! Everyone was impressed – so many people asked me “how did you FIND these guys they are GREAT!” Your arranging “It Had To Be You” made our first dance a success. I truly cannot thank you enough. You and the band were wonderful to us. You have my recommendation to anyone and everyone. Hopefully I will see you again sometime at the Fred Astaire Dance Studios!” Katrina Krause

“I just wanted to extend my personal gratitude for the RJO performance last night. I think everyone enjoyed it, and for my purposes, it was “edutainment” at its finest. Our department chair was quite happy with the attendance and the program. I hope we will be able to have the ensemble back to Wake Tech in the future. Thanks again.” Scott Schlesinger

“Thanks for arranging everything with the musicians. We had a great event and are very happy with the performance. Please keep me on your mailing list for future performances by the RJO. Thanks,” Matt Griffith

“I just wanted to let you know that the band was great last night! Thank you so much. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks again,” D.R. Horton Real Estate.

“Thanks to you and the other musicians the festival was a huge success. We have been getting emails everyday since from folks that were here thanking us for such a good time! We hope to have you and the other musicians back again. We are going to have a summer concert series and it would be wonderful to have the full orchestra. Keep in touch and try to get back to visit the winery when you have time to enjoy the wines!Thanks again.” Tina Smith
