I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are for your presence at our celebration. You and your band MADE the night. I have never seen a dance floor so packed for the entire night!!! Every single song you played was a raging hit and you sounded absolutely awesome!!
I also can’t thank you enough for playing so long and even coming back for an encore. I know you didn’t have to do that and truly appreciate your enthusiasm.
The next morning I must have received compliments about you from every single guest!! People were blown away.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU so much!!!
XO Camille & Lucas
The band was excellent! Everyone that I spoke to had nothing but compliments for your performances. Btw, your cover of “Midnight Train to Georgia” (one of my favorite r’n’b tunes) was killer. I will definitely recommend your band to others who are looking for excellent entertainment.
5 stars is not a high enough number to describe how INCREDIBLE this band is
– I want to give them a 10+++. Talented, professional, flawless, energetic –
so many people at our event asked me – WHERE did you find this band – they are brilliant!! Kimberly and Aidan – simply unmatched vocal talent – what a great combination!! I almost don’t want to gush TOO much because I don’t want them to be too booked for the next time WE need them!
Thank you to each and every band member, as well as to your hard-working sound and support crew,
for making our 70th Anniversary Celebration a truly memorable occasion.
I cannot thank you and the band enough for making our night such a HUGE success!
I must add that Kimberly had such a great stage presence in her red sexy dress and her gorgeous hair surrounded by all you “men in black”!!
My only wish is that I personally could have had more time to sit back and “absorb” the whole show
– I was so busy running around!! Please let me know if you do any gigs that are paid venues –
my hubby and I would love to come out to see you again in a more relaxed environment for me!!
Much continued success to each and every one of you!
My wife and I hired The Bluesual Suspects for our wedding on July 2012. We had a few bands to consider during the planning stages, but it was The Bluesual Suspects’ unmatched versatility that led us to choose them – they can play anything from Frank Sinatra to Feist and they do it real well! We had 231 guests at our wedding and our oldest guest (87), youngest (15), and many in between told us they were easily the best wedding band they had ever heard! Reaching across generations like that is not easy, in fact, it takes real skill and as a musican myself, I really appreciated the kind of ability they bring to the table. They can play as a12 piece with a great horn section all eveing, or keep it more low key during dinner and bring out the horn section after dinner. We went with the 12 piece from start to end so they could mix and match better. They managed the sound in the room extremely well, as it was never too loud or too quiet – just the right volume to keep everyone dancing and mingling! Finally, their bandleader, Jeff, was the most professional and pleasant wedding vendor we had to deal with. After dealing with numerous awful elements of the wedding industry, it was such a pleasure dealing with Jeff.
Lastly, wedding bands in general are expensive. We did extensive research and came to that conclusion. However, the Suspects’ price falls in line with every other wedding band we considered, only they were significantly better. So I say, if you’re looking for a band, look no further, these guys will take your event to the next level. Trust me!
I hope you’re well.
I meant to email you sooner, but between our honeymoon, moving out of our apartment, and our move to California, it’s been a little hectic. We leave for California next Monday!
Nevertheless, Sabrina and I would like to thank you and The Bluesual Suspects for playing at our wedding. Old and young, everyone told us how much they “LOVED” the band! I expect you’ll be hearing from many of them in the near future, as you guys were really great. On top of that, it was incredibly refreshing to deal with someone as sincere as yourself throughout the wedding planning. So thank you again and please let me know if you’d like me to write a testimonial.
All best and talk soon,
This next one was particularly satisying to receive because the event was four years ago!!
Just the other day someone mentioned again how great the music was at our wedding which was July 19, 2008 almost four years ago, and people are still takling about you guys. You guys are amazing! Thank you again for such a great job!!
Laurie & Jim Ray
Our wedding was a blast and it was all because the entertainment was so amazing.
From the grandparents’ generation to the four year olds, we all loved the music.
You definitely played all the right songs and got everyone up on their feet. We were
surprised to see that so many people stayed so late to listen to you play and dance!
Our guests are still raving about the band to us and our bridal party. You guys looked
so great as well and really matched the atmosphere of the Arcadian Court. Thank you so much for making the night truly memorable for everyone.
Thanks again for the fabulous job you, the
band and the technicians did for Jacqueline and Matt’s
celebration! It turned out so well and as you could tell by the all night
of dancing, your band read the crowd and kept them moving!!
Take care and thank everyone for me.
Thank you and the band for a lovely evening. It was amazing and everyone was so flabbergasted by the performance, it was just pure class! An amazing evening, thanks to you guys. Sheer professionalism. Beautiful! I should forward some of the comments. Everyone was asking about the band and I was only too happy to spread the news! Thanks again for a fantastic evening and I will keep your card close by! Nico was blown away. His family was the thrilled at the mere concept of the gift of a private band in your own backyard

Brandon and I were lucky enough to truly have the fairytale wedding of our dreams.
Thank you to you and your group for an amazing show and fantastic music.
We have passed your name on to many many people- everyone was asking about where I heard about your band. We cannot thank you enough.
I will send pictures your way asap.
Your band was outstanding!! We have received so many compliments on what an excellent time everyone had dancing & listening to your band play. Music can make or break an event & The Bluesual Suspects made a special day totally awesome!
Jeff, Just a quick note to say thank you and to let you know that we have had so much positive feedback about the music at our wedding. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks. Too bad I’m only having one wedding!
Never before have we had such a great turnout on the dance floor!
It was truly a great night and a lot of that had to do with the amazing entertainment. We have received many compliments still about how this Gala was the best yet.
Thank you and your band again for a great night!
You guys ROCK!
Danced with you all night at the Canadian German Gala Ball.
What a great evening.
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you so much for playing at our wedding!! Your band is amazing, and did such an insanely great job!!! It’s all everyone was talking about all night. Seriously, no one cared about anything else! Haha.
In fact, people are still talking about you guys!! And also, thank you so much for learning our song for the ceremony! It sounded beyond perfect, and it was everything we wanted!! You’re all amazing!!
Jeff, here are some pics of the wedding. Thought u might like to see how handsome you all looked. Your female lead singer is amazing! Wendi loved the first dance and Michael (who actually surprised me that he was able to dance!!) thought it was wonderful. Great job by all of you and many thanks. To top it all off, I was even impressed with your sound technician. I got to bed at 5am and he was still out there packing up!!
Thanks again for everything and have a good day.
Thanks for the great music at Naomi and Jon’s wedding! You were able to please all the age groups (no easy task) and we received many, very positive comments. Hope we have the opportunity to hear you again soon.
The Bluesual Suspects played at our wedding. We would highly recommend the band for any event or celebration! They helped set the mood with a mix of recent and older songs and had a lot of energy. We really enjoyed having them play and our guests did too.
Naomi and Jonathan
I just wanted to tell you how great you guys were. We are really sorry our itinerary didn’t allow you to play more but everyone sure enjoyed the music while they had it. Hope you had a good night and could you please let me know if you guys are having a concert or anything so we can try to come.
Thank you very much,
I wanted to write you and the band to say thank you once again for a spectacular evening. I can’t begin to tell you how many people from our wedding made a point of telling us what a great band you guys are. There is no doubt in my mind that our wedding would not have been the same without you guys. I will recommend your band to anyone that I know that is looking for musical services.
Love Mitzy and Leon Dadoun
Thank you so much for providing such a fabulous evening of music for us. We received so many comments about how fantastic The Bluesual Suspects were and everyone raved about how great the music was. Of course, the only complaint was that you didn’t play long enough but that was beyond our control!! I guess we were trying to pack too much into one evening.
We appreciate your understanding and patience throughout the evening and in working with us to provide the best possible time for our members.
It was a pleasure to work with such a professional band and we certainly appreciated all your efforts in accommodating our requests. It would have been wonderful to simply enjoy an entire evening of your wonderful music that so appropriately fit our theme for the evening.
I’m sending you a link for the pictures of the event. There are a few of the band so you’ll get to see a good recap of the evening which you contributed in making the successful night that it was.
Many thanks again.

Thank-you for a great performance on Saturday!!!!!!!
All the timing was perfect thanks to your patience on stage.
I look forward to the next one.
All the best,
We saw you guys at Hollywood’s last night. In one word……..amazing!
Your’s is the best band we’ve seen at The Hollywood so far.
We had a great time!
Marlene & Victor
Just a short note to thank you so much for making Kim & Hugh’s wedding reception at The Palais Royale such a special event. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed listening to the band and your music selection was perfect for the occasion. Having The Bluesual Suspects perform certainly kicked off the evening in great style and set the “party” tone for the rest of the reception. Everyone remarked on what a difference having a live band made to the overall success of the evening. We would certainly recommend and endorse The Bluesual Suspects for any special occasion.
Lynn & Wayne Day
As my dad stated, thanks so much for the wonderful, wonderful music !! You guys were terrific – you really made the event so special and catered the music to match the venue perfectly. Thanks so very much – we will always remember the Bluesual Suspects and would highly recommend you to anyone (and everyone).
Hi. Just saw your band last night at Ribfest in Mississauga. Thought your band and vocal was great!! Sorry I missed you in Brampton
I hope to see you at one of your next concerts.
Jeff, Jeff, Jeff!
I keep meaning to send you a note – On week two of the event everyone was going on and on and on and on (you get it) about the great band we had for week one!!!! Who were they?…I kept telling everyone your web info!!!
Hope something good comes from it…can’t wait to have you back for
Marketing & Events
Your band was just wonderful. I know that long after my guests will have forgotten about what hors-d’oeuvres and antipasto we served or the colour of the tablecloths, they will remember the great music and vibe that The Bluesual Suspects provided.
Thank you so much for making me look so good!
Jeff, the review on band was excellent and it was a pleasure working with you and all the band members. As an event planner, I definitely don’t always have the opportunity to say that! I really enjoyed watching you as you certainly love what you do.
Look forward to doing it all again soon!
I hope you and your band members have recovered after that especially long set at the end! We’ve been getting nothing but incredibly positive feedback about the event and your role in contributing to that. I’m so glad we could make it work this year to feature the Bluesual Suspects – you were the perfect fit for this year’s event.
What a fun event. I must have given your number to ten people already…….do I get a commission?
Jeff, I thought you’d like to see an e-mail I just sent to a friend who is looking to hire a band for his company’s corporate function:
I’ve been a fan of The Bluesual Suspects for a long time. What I
love is the versatility of their music. They seem to appeal to everyone,
from my teenage kids, to my generation, and even my mom! Great stuff to keep a party rolling!
I just wanted you to know I had a great time Saturday night at the Cadillac Lounge. So great that I forgot to pick up my Credit Card from the Bar! Sound was great. Keep up the good work!
