MORE CLIENT FEEDBACK:


"Thanks for a great show! You guys were fantastic!!!"

Laurie Labaska,
Monroe Townshp. NJ


"The Philly Latin Connection Band was outstanding, and helped make our Latin Experience Reception a fantastic success! Your musicians, your singers and your musical selections were excellent and kept everybody going."

C. Elaine Turner,
Abington Memorial Hospital Womens Board


"We had a great time, in a great part due to your band. We've had several comments about how the band was excellent and really added to the atmosphere. In fact, we were saying the next day that at some point in the future we should consider a private party with a live jazz band (you'll be the top choice)"

Robert Babbish,
Long Beach Island, NJ


"Just a note to thank you again for an amazing "Night of Jazz!" My friends and I enjoyed the wide variety of music that you performed for us. It was a perfect evening that no one wanted to end. It has been weeks and my friends are still commenting on how wonderful your music was and on how it was the perfect get together. Thank you so much for creating such wonderful musical memories for my husband, my friends, and myself. Thanks again for sharing your fabulous talent with us. We must schedule you in again next summer."

John and Maureen Gold,
Wenonah, NJ



"EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL!!!!!! We actually are still getting compliments on having you entertain the guests prior to the wedding. All of your suggestions were greatly appreciated and helped me make the evening even more AWESOME then we had anticipated. We'll see you soon at the Prime Rib!"

Pam & Victor Foreman,
Pensauken, NJ


"Everyone was THRILLED with your piano playing and said that the music 'made' the party for them. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us."

We were very pleased with the Barry Sames Combo. The three pieces and a singer combo we had was great. Everyone wanted to know were we found them. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

If you're looking for the consumate trio (piano, bass, drums) for your event, look no further than Barry Sames. Barry handled our entire event - from start to finish - like a true professional. Moreover, in terms of musical ability, you won't find a better group anywhere. The talent of this group amazed me - and I've heard the best. Finally, they took every request in stride. In fact, they encouraged our input every step of the way, and made us feel like we were a part of the band. Don't risk your event with an unknown quantity: Barry Sames is a sure thing.

Hiring Barry Sames Music Combo was absolutely one of the best things we did for our wedding. In terms of skill, we'd be hard pressed to find anyone better, and their professionalism and friendliness was top-notch. If I had to do things over, I'd hire them again without hesitation.

Barry Sames Jazz Combos were an absolute delight at my wedding. We wanted a Jazz band that could play a wide array of contemporary, soulful, and gospel music. They were very professional through the whole process of planning the music play list and they even learned a few songs that were not on their play list. This was a very reassuring process for a bride that strives for perfection. I received a lot of compliments from my guests that are used to attending Academy of the Arts performances. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Roberts, Esquire

We were very pleased with Barry Sames music combo. They did an excelent job. They were very perfessional in their performance and dress attire for our wedding. They sounded so good. We all were very happy and enjoyed every bit off music we asked them to perform,then some. The Bosanova vocalist we asked to have was also excelent. We will definately use them again and again for any future functions we will have. If you choose them also, you won't be dissappointed. "TRUST US". M & T Nesbitt

The Pavan Trio was wonderful and really added something special to my event. They looked and sounded great and the coordination was seamless - when I arrived they were already set up and perfoming. I can't recommend them more.
