TESTIMONIALS


Dear Elliot & Members of Key Tov,
Thank you so much for performing at our simcha! We received so many compliments at the wedding and after about how wonderful you were, and we couldn't agree more. You all sounded fantastic, and each musician heightened every part of our wedding with joy & ruach.
It would be impossible to tell you how much we appreciated your calm flexibility throughout the day. Neither of us were prepared for quite how much of a whirlwind the entire day would be, but you and your bandmates were always relaxed and ready to go with the flow, no matter what was needed or requested. For that we are ever grateful!

Thank you Key Tov for making our wedding day so amazing! Thank you for being the best band ever! You helped make our wedding day so special.

Hi Elliot (and all of Key Tov),
Just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding on May 19th! Everyone loved it and had a great time! Thank you for making our simcha fun, lively, and enjoyable for our guests. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else!

Melissa and Chayim Mescher

Elliot,
We can't thank you enough for the job Key Tov did at our wedding. Your Yiddishe sets are second to none and we were blown away by the secular sets that kept everyone dancing until the very end. From start to finish the entire process was easy, straightforward and efficient - you are truly a pleasure to work with! You have put together an amazing team at a great value and we are so pleased we made the right call in choosing Key Tov as our wedding band. Thanks again and we look forward to hearing you at many simchas to come!

I can't fully express with words how thankful Jodi and I are to you for creating such a special experience for our hora. As you know, I was anxious about creating a long and authentic hora that I would remember forever. You far exceeded my expectations. I have been approached by many people who wanted me to know that the hora was unlike any other they had seen. And we owe it to you. Thank you for singing and arranging it and making it perfect. Thank you for your energy. It was definitely the highlight of my night!

Elliot,
I have to tell you that people are still talking about the wedding and the wonderful band we had. Please do not hesitate using the Alperts as a reference in the future. We would rave about you.
Thanks to everyone in your group for putting themselves fully into the wedding and making it memorable.

Hi Elliot,
Finally almost 2 months later I’m able to call you when I’ve been able to catch my breath to tell you thank you. Because my wedding and Joe’s wedding was so beautiful. You guys did an amazing job. Your voices were phenomenal, I couldn’t believe how beautiful everything sounded at the chupah. And my only regret is that I didn’t call you sooner to tell you what an amazing job you did. The sound from the band was amazing - everything was perfect. And I want you to know that I will definitely recommend you to everybody I know, anybody who asks, and I just wanted to say thank you because you really help make it a beautiful day.

Dear Elliot,
I want to thank you again for helping us make Aliza and Yishai’s wedding such a glorious simcha. You and your musicians - and your brother - were so good and professional that some of our guests thought we “brought in this band from New York.” Maybe now they’ll realize that Chicago has a band that’s better than NY! It was a pleasure working with you - Annie seconds that - and I hope we’ll have a chance to do it again in the future!

Dear Elliot
I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the music! Everyone had a great time and raved about our 60's music. Thank you for taking the extra effort to do that, something that was out of the ordinary. Everyone told us how much fun they had and I could see that even though not everyone was dancing, they could not stop their feet from moving with the music. Your singing during the Chuppah was beautiful, we were very impressed.
Just wanted to let you know again how terrific the music was at Becky's wedding. We appreciate that you kept the volume at a reasonable level that allowed people to hear themselves think. In fact, my sister was just telling me that too!!
Thanks again and we can't wait to hear you at your next simcha!

Riva Pearl

Dear Elliot,
Good morning!
This comes to officially thank you/the orchestra,Yoni for a wonderful musical performance at Chana and Heshy's wedding. Literally hundreds of voicemails, emails and phone calls later received from the attendees of the wedding. One thing is crystal clear-they absolutely LOVED the music they heard. Elliot, you are an absolute pleasure to work with. I shared your website address and phone # with many of the relatives and friends who have children either of Bar/Bat mitzva or marriagable age. Hopefully you'll be getting more business coming your way. By the way, great thanks for incorporating the good old Jewish wedding songs from the tape I gave you into the musical repertoir of the evening-it was fantastic and exactly what the bride wanted. The sefardi songs were lovely too.
Thanks once again for the magical evening!
Looking forward to doing business with you in the future.

Dear Elliot:
It is with much gratitude that we thank you very much for playing at our wedding at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare’s Nikko Room on Sunday, September 7, 2008. The music you played was simply spectacular. The pre-ceremony music was absolutely perfect, the precessional/recessional/ceremony music was simply beautiful, the reception music was fun and fitting for the room and the music for the dinner was exactly what we wanted. An extra special thank you for playing our requested songs and for making very wise decisions when it came to the dance music. You and your band certainly did not miss a beat! In fact, many of our guests commented on your magnificent voice as well as the band's gifted talent to play all of those fabulous songs.
On a personal level, we would like to take this opportunity to tell you and your band how appreciative we are for all that you did. The fact that you worked so hard to make certain that our wedding would be picture perfect meant a great deal to us. We feel truly fortunate to have had such great people working with us and we thank you very, very much for helping us start our married life with much joy!

Elliot and his 7 piece orchestra can be customized for parties of any size, so whether your wedding is big or small, you will have the right size band. My mother is a professional musician and composer, and she agreed that the members of the band were excellent musicians, technically proficient and well-trained. The band works well together, and it shows. They really kept the party going. Quiet music, dance numbers, hebrew songs, pop music, jazz, yiddish tunes, klezmer, they played it all and played it well. Highly recommended! Very easy to work with. We had specific requests for lengths of sets, types of music, etc., and they did everything we asked. The bandleader was the MC for the event, which made it easy for everyone else. Now the cutting of the cake, now the first dance, etc. was all on a list, and everything went according to plan. Great band!
