LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. We (and all of our guests) can't say it enough. Band was absolutely fabulous, the play list was EXACTLY what we liked to listen to, and it was much more personal touch compared to having a DJ play records. You guys made our first dance so memorable. I mean, I could not have found a more random or obscure song AND SOUL CITY SHAKEDOWN NAILED IT.

Jon was outstanding to work with, personal and professional and this was echoed by the band. One of the most important aspects of our wedding was to find an incredible band and Soul City Shakedown knocked it out the park and went so far above our expectations. The Pianist during our ceremony, the Jazz being played during our cocktail hour and the impact the full band made at our reception will never be forgotten.
Brianna
Working with Jon was a super easy process, he put together a package for us to have a DJ for our wedding. we hired Leo as our DJ and he listened to exactly how we wanted our reception to go! From the processions to introductions and reception everything was flawless and perfect!

Jon Ardito Entertainment is the absolute best in the game. We used him and his team for our wedding in September and could not have been happier! Aside from providing a full band, Jon's team did the outdoor ceremony music, steel drum at cocktail hour and the photo booth (huge hit!)

Jon and his team were absolutely amazing for our big day. The logistics, style and organization of them all were amazing. Jon was responsive and understanding during the crazy time of planning. They did a terrific Job and we would absolutely recommend them again to anyone. P.S. the photobooth was a HUGE hit.

Hiring Jon Ardito Entertainment was an easy decision from the moment we met Jon. He listened to what we had in mind for our big day and was very accommodating. Wedding planning can be quite stressful at times and Jon was one of the best vendors at communicating. We had Jon as our MC and DJ Dan on the turntables for the night and they nailed it! The dancefloor was packed all night and our guests were raving about how great the music was!
