Testimonials Kaufmann / Skolnick Wedding November 16, 2013 ?Let me say again, and again...THANK YOU for the Incredible Experience you gave us on Saturday night! I only wish I had another upcoming affair so that we could do it all over again! You brought it, as did the entire group and we are over the moon with joy!! Everyone I've talked to said this was by far the MOST FUN they've ever had at a Wedding and they were blown away by The R Factor! That means everyone from the very young to the very old. At 12:30 we were not ready to stop. Too damn much fun! Please let me know, besides FB how I can tell people about how fabulous you are and that you are the #1 band here in Minnesota and they should not consider hiring any other. I not only talk and dance a lot, I write really well!! Sharon Kaufmann ------------------------------------------ Jenna Vine Wedding June 29, 2013 Hi Emil! Wow!! You were AMAZING on Saturday!!! Thank you for playing at our wedding! We knew you were great, but you blew us away! Our family and friends loved you and still cannot stop talking about how much fun they had!! Some of our favorite quotes we heard from our guests were "band of the century!" "Best wedding I've ever been to!" "We've never seen a dance floor so packed ALL night long!" "I think the band members had just as much fun as the guests!" We are so happy we chose the R Factor! Thank you again and best wishes to you all!!! Jenna and Marc Mayer :) ----------------------------------- Benjie Kaplan Wedding August 26, 2012 I can't believe that it has already been two weeks since our wedding. Now that I have finally come down from the high I wanted to take a quick moment to thank you for making our wedding reception one of the BEST of the summer. The energy that the band brought that evening had the dance floor packed from start to finish (and then some). The arrangement of the songs we selected, mixing old and new flawlessly, made the evening fun for all of our guests young and old, and your willingness to play an extremely long set with rolling breaks ensured that nobody had a reason to leave early. The band was indeed a Highlight of the evening, and we can't thank you enough. We look forward to seeing you again at our friends weddings in the months and years ahead (See you at Oakridge in November)......and if anyone asks us, you can bet we'll tell them that there is ONLY ONE BAND WORTH HIRING! All the best Benjie and Libby Kaplan ------------------------------- Brad Taylor Wedding August 2, 2008 Thank you guys for the best wedding you could ask for.  All my family and friends are still raving about the band and sing and danced all night long.  You all are to be commended on being so professional and attending to our every musical need.  The R Factor Rocks!! Brad Taylor

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 6, 2014From Eau Claire, WI

The band was wonderful!! All night long the comment I received the most was..."where did you find the band?" Everyone loved them. Everyone was up dancing, all our friends, colleagues and even my 88 year old grandmother. The band showed up on time for setup and started playing right on time. They also were very good at communicating their needs (stage, power, etc.) up front prior to the event, which was wonderful, there were no surprises. Many of our guests put in requests and they were able to respond to the guest requests. The band was dressed well, and was extremely friendly. You won't be disappointed!

We would like to thank The R Factor for making our wedding dance so special and fun for all. The dance floor was packed ALL night long! The talent of The R Factor is amazing. Our guests felt like they were at a concert. We were so happy that we had a band for our event and would hire The R Factor anytime. Thank You...Thank You...Thank You! God bless you all...Barb and Tom Thorson and Jenna and Hunter Volk
