Matthew and his band were absolutely amazing! They were so easy to work with, very generous to accommodate our needs to maintain a strict budget as this was a fundraiser and, oh, did I mention they sounded fantastic?!? We received so many compliments on their talent and how well their jazz paired with our Gatsby theme. They were friendly and honest, we could not have asked for more! I'm just sorry that I did not get to thank them in person and congratulate them on a job well done! I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed! Best- Cara DePaul
For programming, we work hard to provide variety within even basic genre choices. For example, with a set of music from the American Songbook, we will choose songs in an order that provides interest in tempo, feel, and even key centers so that listeners can feel a sense of movement, even on a very subtle level.
While each musician in Prelude Productions performs at the highest level of musicianship, we all understand that most often our role is secondary in a cocktail hour or corporate function. We are happy to be sensitive to volume and physical space issues, and we are readily aware that we are an addition to your event, not necessarily the main attraction.
Our goal at Prelude Productions is to provide you with the greatest sense of ease regarding your event music. With just a simple consultation, we can create a beautiful addition to any special day.
Please visit our website for more information.
We look forward to hearing from you!
"Prelude Productions led by Matthew Rybicki played my wedding on Labor Day Sunday, and wow, they were awesome. My husband and I wanted a jazz band with the range to play a some Rock, R&B and Pop as well. We auditioned several bands and Matt's group really impressed us. They also had unbelievable flexibility. They had a guitarist accompany our ceremony and had additional band members come later in the evening as they transitioned from their superb jazz repertoire. Working with Matt in planning the music program was a pure delight. He was seemingly always available, very responsive and had great suggestions. He also was very accommodating. The wedding performance itself was just great. They are a very talented and professional jazz group. They played an excellent jazz set during our cocktail hour and then another during the dinner. After dinner they moved toward more danceable music with terrific variety. Their lead singer is a real talent. Her range is impressive. There are not too many singers that can pull off Adele, but she is more than up to the task and then some. Our guests are still complimenting us on our band selection. Their rates were very reasonable making them not only a great band, but a terrific value as well. We couldn't recommend them more highly." - Adi Haller, August 2012
