Jon arrived one half hour prior to showtime, exactly as he said he would. He was very accomodating and was patient as we had to have our show begin a little later than stated. Everyone enjoyed his performance, his history of Motown information which filled the time inbetween songs, and his lovely voice. He provided background music via tape for the program, and brought all his own equipment with him. We would be glad to have him back!

I arranged for Jon to entertain at my husband's 65th Surprise Birthday Party. Jon's performance was excellent! He was more than accomodating in providing everything I wanted. He tailored his performance to fit the event and the audience. His singing was so great people initially thought that he was lip synching. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event in part due to the service that Jon provided. He made a great addition to the party.

They nearly ruined my wedding!!! First of all, they did not even come and say hello to myself or my husband. They were not enthusiastic at all, no one MC'ed and we had to cue them for everything, cutting the cake, bouquet toss and garter toss and they did not have any music prepared for those events. Also, they took a lot of breaks and requested that they be fed and helped themselves to the bar! Our guests began to leave because when they went on their breaks they didn't even put a CD on! I was so disappointed. I really trusted them to entertain and they wouldn't even announce the bridal party (my aunt ended up doing it). I could go on and on.....We asked them to leave early and our friends played their iPOD's. I requested that they refund my money (except for their travel expenses) but I was refused. EVERYONE who was there said what a shame it was that I was in tears over the fact that some of my guests left because they wee BORED! It took me some time to respond to your request for feedback because I truly feel bad for this man who claims to be a great performer because he believes it! My husband and I are taking legal action because we feel like we were robbed. I hope that no couple ever has to go through what we went through because of this band. It was extremely unfortunate and I wish I could have that day to do over more than anything. People always say that no mater what goes wrong at a wedding no one will notice as long as they are having fun.....My guests said they began to have fun when the band left. I can not express how upset this made me.

ABC TV Performer-- Jon Turk & Wildflower!’s Response:

To all customers reading this...I encourage you to compare this feedback to the other comments which speak for themselves. We as band members have no idea what the bride's problem was...we did our jobs professionally as always. We think she was looking to blame someone for a reception that didn't go her way. Whatever is really bothering her, we feel sorry for her dismay and God help her. Her Dad paid the balance of our fee without complaint or ill feelings as far as we could observe. As to the possible court action that is being threatened, I have alerted the American Federation of Musicians legal department of this unfortunate incident and they stand ready at o

Jon performed for my mother-in-laws 70th birthday party. Jon really helped to make our party a success. He was on time and very professional. His music brought forth a positive reaction from the crowd and they loved singing and dancing to the oldies. I would strongly recommend Jon for any event or performance. Thanks Jon for a wonderful time!

Hello - We hired Jon as the entertainment for my mom's surprise 60th birthday party and he did not disappoint. He lived up to his "promotions" and then some. He had the whole party dancing, singing - he has a full range of Motown - oldies and modern + turns out he is a Beatles enthusiast as well - how great is that?!. He was terrific. Not only is he talented, but he is extremely professional, accomodating and dependable - a rare find in my opinion. In the end, we wound up asking him to play an hour and half longer than originally booked and several party guests called after the fact to say what a great time they had. This guy is the real deal, I'd hire him again and be happy to provide a future reference upon request. Hope you find this feedback helpful! And Jon, thanks again for a great party. Regards...Michele W. Party - 10/28/06 Swedesboro, NJ
