  • The Louis Pettinelli Jazz Trio ("Lou +2") was wonderful for our event! The musicians arrived ahead of schedule, played very festive jazz that fit our event perfectly, and had our guests dancing the night away. We really enjoyed having them. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great jazz trio!

  • It was an absolute pleasure hiring Louis Pettinelli Music to perform for my wedding proposal! I reached out to Louis with the idea of performing 'Fly Me To The Moon' before I proposed to my girlfriend. He was immediately on board with the idea! I appreciate the time and effort he put into preparing for the performance - we coordinated via audio messages to determine appropriate scale and sent me an instrumental recording of the piano to help me practice. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better trio to work with. Louis, you made our proposal truly special and I’m so thankful to you and the rest of the musicians for your services!

  • "The band was absolutely phenomenal! Louis was very easy to work with, communicative and kept us on track during the entire preparation phase leading up to our wedding - when he said we were in good hands he definitely meant it. Working with Louis was definitely the most worry-free part of our whole wedding planning process. But most importantly, Louis and his band delivered beyond expectations - all our guests loved their performance and I was even a bit sad that I wasn't in the room the whole time to enjoy their music. 110% recommend to anyone who is looking for a top notch professional jazz band!"

  • “The Louis Pettinelli Quartet was everything I expected. They played at our wedding reception cocktail hour and all our guests stated how classy it was. We submitted specific songs and his band played it all. I appreciated how flexible and accommodating his was with our request. He was able to honor our desire for a 30 minute opening session with just the pianist and an hour performance with the whole band. I was very surprised when the sax player broke out the clarinet for one the songs. All the band members were professional and respectful. At the same time, you can tell they really enjoyed playing their set. I highly recommend Louis Pettinelli and his musical colleagues. He understands your needs and delivers it with the highest quality, professionalism and respect. Bands and musicians can learn a few things from Louis Pettinelli.”

Everyone wanted to know how I found such a wonderful group and ask how to get in touch with them in the future. My event was a success with their performance and music.

  • “Louis and his jazz band did an amazing job at my husband's 65th Birthday celebration! From the time I contacted Louis, he was responsive and easy to work with. The Band was FANTASTIC! Everyone of our 45 guests loved them and wanted to know how I found them. I highly recommend!”

  • “Louis, I wish we can give you more than 5 stars. Great job and thank you for going above and beyond by playing our music selection. For your next event and future events only hire Louis and his band. Thank you so much.”

  • “This was our first year hiring a live band for our annual company Christmas Party. In the past we have generally gone with a DJ. This was a much preferred choice and Louis and his band and vocalist were amazing. The price was very reasonable for the quartet and vocalist actually cost as much as a DJ and much much better to have live music. Will definitely hire these guys again. A truly amazing evening thanks to their wonderful music.”

  • “Lou and his band did a phenomenal job at our wedding. My wife and I had our wedding at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore and Lou's set matched our theme perfectly. Our only regret is that the night couldn't last longer! Lou was punctual and had no problem setting up. He had all our guests, young and old, on their feet and dancing the whole night. We received so many compliments about their music and especially the singer. We highly recommend the Louis Pettinelli band for any event!”

  • “I was so impressed with the punctuality! As a planner, we often stress about the entertainment being ready to go before the first guest arrives (who is always rudely 5 min. early)...I would definitely hire this group again. My guests absolutely loved them!”

    Kendra H.
  • “Louis was super easy to work with and I would love to hire him again. He was prompt with messages and with arriving at the event, even in the rain. He arranged with his partner what would work timing wise to maximize the efficiency which I thought was brilliant, especially while the venue was still setting up. He saved me a fortune in having to hire AV through the hotel.”

  • “I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Pettinelli for five months in a prominent NYC restaurant. His staff was very professional, had a great appearance, and most importantly, was able to demonstrate their commitment to jazz through their outstanding appearances. They were also very flexible. Upon request, they are able to change instrumentation and experiment. One week, someone would have an xylophone as lead, then a saxophone the next, and maybe a flute the next. If at all possible in the future, I would absolutely recommend this group for any function. Thank you!”

  • “The Louis Pettinelli Group provided 4 hours of music for my wife's birthday party at 618 Banquet Hall in Freehold NJ. The music was as perfect in quality of choice and delivery of sound as it possibly could have been. Everyone raved about the music selection and professional performance they provided all evening. The business process for scheduling and payment was simple and easy as well. I highly recommend them for anyone who enjoys great music.”

  • “We had planned a new year luncheon at work but because of holiday schedules, we didn't reach out to musicians until a week before the event. Louis was quick to respond, had a fair price, and was available to perform. His band arrived on time, were professional, and played one heck of a set. The music was great and everyone enjoyed it. I would recommend Louis and his band to anyone. We were so pleased by the performance and I was grateful for our seamless interactions.”

  • “I hired Louis Pettinelli to play a corporate event at the Kimmel Center and I couldn't have been much happier with the result. Louis is very professional and takes his work very seriously. They were absolutely terrific in every sense. The music was exactly what we wanted- no light jazz, but a more progressive upbeat style that kept the party moving. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”

  • “Louis Pettinelli and his jazz quintet did a fantastic job at my event! They created an atmosphere of class and style for the evening, playing songs that were appropriate for the crowd. I was very impressed by the musicians and the vocalist and look forward to keeping them at the top of my list of performers for upcoming events. Well worth the cost. I highly recommend!”

  • “I hired Louis Pettinelli Music for my client’s Wedding. Everything was amazing. From the first conversation to the end of the reception was outstanding. The owner, Louis was very responsive and professional and was always available to answer questions. We had meetings to go through all the details about the workflow. The band’s performance was AWESOME! The DJs were amazing - Most of the guests were on the dance floor all night. Everyone had a blast and they kept the party hopping! Had a lot of great comments from my guests. They were impressed. By the way, they also provide a Chinese translator which is really satisfied my clients. I would definitely use again.”

  • “Louis and his band recently performed at our wedding. Everything about our experience with him and his team exceeded our expectations. In the months leading up to the wedding Louis and I had several check-in conversations to discuss the type of feel my husband and I wanted for the event, special song requests, etc. We asked for several songs outside the traditional set for our ceremony and they performed them beautifully. We had so many compliments from guests about how wonderful Louis and his band were. The sound was simply perfect. I would 100% recommend Louis and his band for other weddings or special events. He's wonderful.”

  • “Louis and his band played at our wedding and was absolutely fabulous! He was in contact prior to the wedding in order to make sure he had our song selections correct. The day of the event the band showed up with time to set up. Even though it was a rainy day and the event was outside under a tent they had great spirits! They continuously checked in with myself and husband throughout the ceremony to make sure things were running smoothly concerning first dances, etc. Multiple people at the wedding commented on how wonderful they were. I would highly recommend! Thanks Louis!”

  • “Louis and his team did an excellent job for our annual colleague awards gala. Louis was a great communicator before the event to learn the details surrounding their gig and it helped put us at ease with the many moving parts required. We requested the band play music during a cocktail reception and dinner service and they provided the perfect variety of songs and utmost professionalism for this event. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for jazz musicians.”

  • “Louis was absolutely wonderful providing a full 16 piece orchestra to play rarely played music from the 1920s as well as a ton of jazz standards from the 1930's and 1940's. Not only was it a tough endeavor which he pulled off excellently but the musicians that he works with were all absolutely top notch. It was truly impressive how wonderful they all were and how well they all played together. I look forward to hiring the Lou Pettinelli Orchestra again for future gigs.”

  • “The band was the perfect addition to my dad's birthday event. First and foremost, the music was absolutely wonderful. I had a few guests that were musicians and they had nothing but compliments for the trio (everyone wanted their information!) But I would be remiss if I didn't also mention my experience with the business side of things. From the start, Louis was great. He was very responsive and very professional. And it was very easy working with him. I have no reservations and would highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you all again!”

  • “Louis Pettinelli Entertainment performed at the IEEE IM 2019 conference at the Double Tree by Hilton on April 9th. The band was a 4 piece-ensemble with Louis playing the upright bass, Julian on the drums, Carter with his cool red keyboard and beautiful vocals by Kerensa. Along with being highly talented and professional, the band was also very friendly and it was a pleasure to work with them. People attending the event loved their performance and few stayed back till the band stopped playing long after the event ended. I received very good compliments for the band from all the teams organizing the conference and the attendees. I would definitely love to work with them again in the future. Thank you again for a wonderful evening, guys!”
