Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 27, 2013From Springfield, OH

The Tom Daugherty Swingin' Sounds Orchestra was amazing, exceeded all of our expectations! They were very professional and the music was spectacular! The Tom Daughterty Orchestra made our father's 87th birthday a night we will never forget. We cannot stay enough about the impact they made on the evening.....they were first class, ....A of the heap!!!!! If we could we would give them 10 stars!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 7, 2011From Columbus, OH

The Tom Daugherty Swingin' Sounds Orchestra was exceptional. I think back and remember how I looked over all of their reviews wondering if we would say the same things in the end. Well, here we are with another wonderful review. Everyone at our wedding said the band made the night so special and fun. It was music that every generation got up to dance to. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you all for making our wedding celebration that much more special.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 18, 2011From Lebanon, OH

We recently (June 18, 2011) had the Tom Daugherty Orchestra perform at our daughter's wedding reception. We had numerous compliments on the music, their professionalism, and their willingness to work with us. They provided background music during dinner, helped with announcements, and did a tremendous show during the dancing/celebration part of the wedding. Of all of our vendors, Tom's group was the best/easiest to work with. I highly recommend them for your function!!
