We saw Joel on our cruise March 2011. He actually made a joke and gave my daughter his guitar pic after playing an awesome round of Eagles songs...When he gave her the pic, he told her to beware that women get pregnant after getting his guitar pics!! Low and behold, when we all came home from our cruise, she took a pregnancy test and it's POSITIVE!! No joke. My daughter & her husband are so excited...I told them they should name their baby Joel if it's a boy....

I wanted to pass on a note from our guest speaker on the morning of our second day. Thanks so much again for a great conference.
I also would like you to pass on the fact that the audio visual group was the best I have seen. John Zambrano, and all the others were right on it. Paid attention, wanted to make it right, changed my slides in a moment's notice, had the song ready, picked up the cues to begin and end each time, kept checking the battery, went to extra effort to give me info on getting a good mike and battery pack like the ones they use. They are the best, and whoever chose them should know. Awesome.

I had to take a minute and write in about the great band Hip Service that played the wedding in Napa. As soon as they plugged in people were hitting the dance floor and the energy just kept building. The band members were friendly and created an atmosphere that made everybody comfortable getting up to dance and have fun. The musicians were terrific and the four singers were each excellent in their own right. We had a great time and I would recommend Hip Service to anyone looking for a band that you can rely on to deliver a great time. Thanks, Randy

Hope you are well. I just wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to you and the band...
We absolutely LOVED them ~ they were AMAZING! Every song was better than the last and they got EVERYONE dancing, ALL night long! I've gotten numerous compliments on them and will HIGHLY recommend them to all my friends and family. THANK YOU!
AND, I wanted to ask you about all the photos online -- How/Where did you guys take these? I LOVE them! Is there any way we can get copies of these??
Seriously, these are some of the BEST photos I've seen (very few people took ANY at the wedding so I was SO excited to see these photos!!)
Thank you again for EVERYTHING

I just wanted to thank you so much for the great people you sent our way, along with yourself of course. You have been a great help and I will always pass your information along. Doug Pauly did a beautiful job. People loved him. Lovetrain of course was fantastic. The dance floor was never empty unless they weren't playing. I have had many phone calls complimenting the band and Doug. They all made Ashley and Josh's wedding a very special and memorable day. None of us will ever forget it. I even had a blast, danced way too much, I had blisters on the bottom of my feet. Thank you so very much you guys are awesome.

They were so professional, on time, friendly, professionally dressed, sounded amazing, and so fun to work with! Thank you so much!
Lindsey and Brian's wedding wouldn't have been such a success without them!

We were invited by Laura Simpson to come to the Ritz and hear her play the harp in December 2009. After hearing her play we hired her for our wedding - May 22, 2010. We sent Laura a deposit check and signed contract with her at that time. I received a phone call from Laura this morning at 7:30 that she would be unable to play for wedding because she was taking a more important engagement to play for the Napa Symphony. She passed this news on to my fiance and I a little over a week before our wedding - which we consider to be terribly unprofessional. We are completely disappointed and left without a harpist on our wedding day. While I understand that playing for the Napa Symphony is much more prestigious opportunity for Laura to play and only happens once year (as Laura explained to me) for me - my wedding day is once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm still dealing with the aftermath but wanted to make sure this was posted to hopefully save some other future brides from being in the same predicament I'm in now.
AEC sympathizes with your disappointing harpist experience ...but please note, this was not a booking by AEC and our agency was in no way tied to that particular event. Had AEC been involved with the process, a last minute cancellation would have been covered by a replacement artist. AEC features many artists on our roster, however, we do not exclusively represent these artists. While we can hire them for you and negotiate terms, we are not responsible for any agreements made directly with the artist that is not documented with an AEC contract.

First of all I want to thank you and John and the whole crew for such an outstanding job yesterday. Sean was so very happy with the outcome of the meeting. He was very impressed with the professionalism of your group and the final product. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with you and the crew. I'm glad to be apart of your team!
Again, Michelle and I thank you so very much!

Thanks so much for providing such an EXCELLENT trio for our Wine & Jazz reception. They were a huge hit, and hit just the right decibel level for the room. The Al Marshall trio was the perfect call.
Please send me the final invoice asap so we can get billing wrapped up. FYI, I think we still owe you the signed contract, unless you found the fax I sent? I'll send it later this week when I'm back in the office.

Just wanted to reach out to you to tell you how great Gilda was on Valentine's Day. I didn't get a chance to thank her personally that night before she left. If you could extend my gratitude to her I would appreciate it. Melissa was also very thorough and very prompt. Great doing business with you. Talk to you soon-

Its been a long time and it is great to know you are still the man with the master plan. We are here in Ohio working with some local musicians slipping and sliding in the snow this time (January) of year, can't wait to get back to California soon.
