We hired the Kenzie Jazz band to play our small/intimate 40 guest wedding at the Grand Victorian in Niagara-on-the-Lake this past summer. We couldn't have chosen a more wonderful, talented (and stylish!) band. Julie's voice is out of this world, and the band completely knocked all of our guests socks off. I had made a request for a song that the band was not familiar with for our first dance (These Arms of Mine by Otis Redding.) Much to our surprise, the band learned it and played it for my husband and I. It was simply beautiful, and one of the great highlights of our special night. Thank you Kenzie Jazz for helping make our wedding a dream come true.

We hired Julie and her band for our wedding reception and they were really amazing. Everyone commented on how great the music sounded and how lovely her singing voice was. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same had we gone with someone different. Prior to the wedding, Julie was very responsive and professional. She answered every question we had in great detail so that we felt comfortable with what we were purchasing. She also accommodated special song requests for us and played them beautifully. I would highly recommend Julie and her band to anyone in the future.

Julie and her band were simply amazing! I have no words to describe the wonderful performance they gave. Our guests were delighted, and most important - my wife (birthday girl) was on cloud #9. Every aspect of working with Julie was flawless, and when it came to the performance itself, she was fantastic. Beautiful voice, great selection of songs, fantastic delivery - THANK YOU JULIE & BAND! I would strongly recommend the Kensie Jazz Band and I am certain you will not be disappointed. Tal Vilenski
