B.D. and his band are absolutely amazing!!! We were hosting a business cocktail party and asked for a jazz quartet (guitar, bass, drum, saxophone). The very moment when they started playing everyone was like "WOWWWW"... The music was good, the band was easy to work with, and I would highly recommend them. Hopefully we can work with them again in the future.

We booked B.D. and his band for our wedding last month at Rose Bank Winery and they were absolutely AWESOME! B.D. was extremely professional and top notch from the very first interaction. We wanted to have jazz music as part of our event but also wanted a band that could play other things well on top of that. And that's exactly what we got! They did jazz music during the cocktail hour. Our guests loved it! During the reception they had everyone dancing. They also learned "I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons)" by Nat King Cole for our first dance. Thank you, Justin, for making that moment so perfect! Our guests had a great time! This band is truly talented!

Absolutely first-class experience with BD Lenz start-to-finish. Super easy communications - BD would get back to emails / calls quickly. Very accommodating - BD worked with us to make sure we had play list we liked. When weather turned outdoor bash to an indoor party for 100 people, BD and his band had no problem setting up inside and giving an amazing performance. Very professional every step of the way. Best part - wonderful music that our guests were raving about. Cool songs. Got the crowd dancing. If it weren't a Sunday evening we would have had them keep the crowd going more. Would love another opportunity to hire them. We highly recommend BD Lenz!
