(performances under a different band name): 5 STARS- This group had a great chemistry and played wonderfully together. They stuck to the genre of music we had asked for, and were very accommodating when it came to special requests. Our guests ranged in age from 1 year old to 85, and the group played relevant music that was enjoyed by all. I highly recommend using them at your party/venue, and plan on hiring them again in the future. - Daphne E 5 STARS- The band was so amazing and was extremely accommodating. They made it easy on my team arranging the event because we did not have to worry about a thing. We had the band for an event on a Monday and asked to have them again the next day because we were so pleased. Would highly recommend them!! - Hailey W 5 STARS- ** provided OUTSTANDING entertainment for our International Food and Wine Festival Social Event!The musical selections chosen, the talented delivery of each song, and the interaction with the crowd, made for an exciting evening for all of our guests! ** also must be commended for dealing with the challenging acoustics in our Atrium, the site of our venue. They handled this situation with the utmost of professionalism and decorum! What resonated over and over again from our guests were words of praise saying that this was by far, "THE BEST" Band to ever perform at any of our Social Events! I would most highly recommend ** for future events! - Sharon R

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 5, 2023From Hollywood, FL

Where do I even start-i googled to find a live band for my father's 70th and stumbled across TTP. I watched several videos until I heard them sing a particular Era and genre. As soon as I heard them I knew the search was over. From the second I spoke to Chris on the phone to the end of the party it was a pleasure. These guys are a class act. They made my fathers night. They listened to what I wanted for his surprise party, delivered and then some! They allowed my father to sing with them and really enjoy his birthday. Their voices are beautiful and I can't recommend them enough! Thank you again for making my father's 70th Birthday the best night ever! Gina

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 23, 2023From Miami Gardens, FL

Tone Poets in Miami Florida was phenomenal. We celebrated my dads 80th birthday party and they were on point. Our theme was roaring 20’s but we wanted some Motown music, music in the 70s and 80s and they knocked it out of the park. You must sign this group to all of your events!!! They can JAM!!!!!!
