Debbie Taylor Band was absolutely amazing and truly made our wedding what it was. Everyone raved about the music and the energy in the room as Debbie and the band kept the party going at the right pace all night. She was more than a pleasure to work with and accommodated every single request that we made. We also had a very complex ceremony and Debbie and her band were able to customize the music to our needs and it could not have been more perfect!!!! We could not have been happier with the Debbie Taylor band and because of them, we had the most magical wedding and a night we will never forget!

The affair Saturday night celebrating our son’s wedding could not have been any better because of you and the band. In fact I believe there may be a few people still on the dance floor.
From the ceremony through the entire evening, the Temple rocked. I do not recall ever seeing so many people who never stopped dancing. Every song we requested was performed as well if not better than the original. The singers were fantastic.
Again, our sincere thank you for a job well done.
Temple B'Nai Torah, 1/17/2015
We all thought you and the band were terrific on Saturday night for Ali and Nick's wedding.
The music for the ceremony was perfect. A number of people recognized the song from the Princess Bride and commented on it - even the rabbi commented during the ceremony that it was really a perfect song for Ali to walk down the aisle to, because that day she really was a princess bride.
We have gotten lots of terrific feedback from the guests at the wedding about how much they enjoyed the band and you really did have people up and dancing.
From when we first spoke on the phone, to when you met with us and the kids, to the actual event, you were a pleasure to work with from start to finish.
Thanks so much,
The Westin Colonnade, 1/18/2014
Our wedding would not have been as spectacular as it was without the Debbie Taylor Band! They have an incredible energy and are so talented. There was literally never a moment that the dance floor wasn't full! Debbie took the time to meet privately with us and was so responsive to my song requests. She helped structure the night to be as perfect as I could have imagined. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a lively and entertaining party!!

We loved the band!! I was just at a family event recently and people are still talking about our band being the "best" band they have heard at a wedding. The variety of music and amazing sound of the singers and the band helped to make our wedding a memorable night for everyone who was there. You really did an excellent job of getting the guests on their feet and dancing the night away. Thank you for being fantastic!

I hired the Debbie Taylor Band for my children's wedding at the Diplomat Golf Resort in Hallandale , Fl. They were just fantastic!! There was never a moment that the music wasn't playing. They had music for my ceremony, cocktail hour and grand ball reception. Debbie was a fabulous MC as well as an amazing singer. In the planning stages Debbie came to my home for a meeting and after that very first meet our worries just melted away. Our guests didn't stop dancing all night and are still talking about it and it's a week later. Thank you Debbie - you rocked us all night long!
P.S. All ages were there at the wedding and all ages had so much fun!
Epic Hotel, Lauren and Allen, 10/20/2012
Arleen & I haven’t come down yet from our Wedding High, mostly due to your bands terrific performance. Since we‘ve been home, all we keep hearing from all the guests is how great the band was. From your running of the timeline to the sound of the band everything was perfectly orchestrated which culminated into the “Best Wedding Ever”. We can’t thank you enough for making sure that this Big Day was a truly EPIC Day. Please feel free to use us as future references as we would be proud to tell people of how pleased we were with choosing your team. You certainly OVER delivered.
We had the most incredible wedding night that we could ever imagine. The energy of the night was truly fantastic, inspiring and unforgettable. All of our guests couldn't stop raving about the band and how amazing you all sounded! Thank you for doing an outstanding version of our very favorite 'Valerie' and a very cool Happy Birthday version to my brother at midnight! Our night was even more extraordinary because of all of you. I wish we could do it again! Hope to work with you again one day.
Westin Colonnade, Claudia and Daniel, 10/21/2012
We just watched the wedding video and are in love with all the music!! You guys were AMAZING! Our first dance was so beautiful and you nailed it just like I knew you would, thank you so much for agreeing to learn it especially for us :) We have received so many compliments about you guys and a few "can I get their numbers?" You were so great and we are so thrilled that we were able to book you for our most special day. Thank you thank you thank you!! Please send us the link so we can leave you guys an awesome review!!
B'nai Israel , Staci and Jonathon, 9/02/2012
Dear Debbie and the Band,
After performing at Dana and Brian's wedding 2 years ago, it is hard to believe that you could have done it any better! Once again, you exceeded our expectations at Staci and Jonathon's wedding! You and your band are so professional and made our celebration such a memorable event. The music choices were terrific and everyone commented on how you keep the music playing from start to finish! Everyone had a great time and you kept people on the dance floor all night long!! Most important, you have been such a pleasure to work with. We are very grateful.
With warm regards,
Juliann & Selden Ross Wedding, 8/11/2012
"WOW!", " "Flawless!", "The BEST, BEST Party Ever!", "Elegant, Simple but Sophisticated!", "The Band, Flowers, Venue, Food and Service were spectacular!", "Continuous High Energy and FUN!"
Just a few of the raves we heard about Juliann and Selden's wedding. You and your band made it happen. You created an atmosphere and night filled with beautiful music, energy, and FUN; and you did it with elegance and grace.
The most consistent accolades were for you and your BAND. "Non-stop, High Energy, the best time we have had at a wedding in ages." The "Explosion of Music", impeccably arranged and delivered was perfect. The Bride and Barbara were so very happy. You made it effortless for us. By the way, the first dance was a huge hit. Several people said it was their favorite moment of the night!
We can't express how much we appreciated all that you and your fellow musicians did to make it all come true. The Bride, the Groom, and the two of us, want you to know how much we appreciated your performance and support. You all helped make our weekend a most memorable and wonder-filled experience.
Barbara and Bruce Lenes
PS: Please share this with all of your wonderful musicians and thank them for all their hard work.
Coral Gables Country Club, 5/27/2012
Dear Debbie & Band,
What can one say. Thank you for setting the tone for an "Evening to Remember". Here it is a week later and family, friends and guests are still talking about Maura & David's wedding. From the introduction of the Wedding Party to your last song there was non-stop dancing and entertainment. You guys are the ultimate professionals.
Thanks again for the "Evening to Remember" and "Keep Rockin in the Free World".

Thank you again for making Laura and Steve's wedding celebration so wonderful! There were so many complimentary remarks from family and friends regarding the talent and excellence shown by you and the band. You guys were PERFECT!

Westin Diplomat, 3/03/2012
First Jackie's wedding and now Lauren's! WOW!!! What can I say... the music was absolutely fantastic! Again you carried the night with the best mix, best sound and best MC'ing ever! I keep being asked if you guys were lip syncing, they thought Cee Lo Green and Black Eyed Peas were in the room! Can't thank you enough, you are a TRUE professional.
AMAZING!!! My dad took the words out of our mouths! Thank you again for doing what you do. You guys were incredible...
Lauren and Justin
I just want to thank you and the rest of the band for making my wedding the best wedding I could have ever dreamed of! You guys did the most spectacular job in making my party the most fun and amazing night of my life! I loved every song you guys played, you choose the perfect mix, and the party flowed flawlessly, I didn't want it to end! And even 3 weeks after the wedding we are still getting compliments on how amazing our band was, and I couldn't agree more! So, I thank you again, for making my wedding the best night of my life... and I definitely danced all night long!
All my best,

Royal Palm Country Club, 10/29/2011
Charles and I wanted to thank you for the FANTASTIC job that you and the band did at our wedding! We had SO much fun, and our guests cannot stop raving about how you were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding! I have already had requests for your information and hopefully it will turn into some more business for your group. I know Marla from Royal Palm was also very impressed with you all.
THANK YOU again for a fabulous job and for working with us throughout this whole process! Hope you and the guys are well and we hope to see you soon at Duffy's!
Boca Raton Resort and Club, 10/15/2011
Words can not express how amazing all of you were at Bryan and Diane's wedding. People always say that if you're dance floor is always crowded it's the sign of a good party. Well people were tearing up the dance floor all night. From start to finish your professionalism was incredible. You made our life so easy. It was one thing we knew we didn't have to worry about. When they wanted an obscure Avenged Sevenfold song as their first dance there was no hesitation on your part. After the song was sung they were beyond thrilled with the rendition and even told us it was just as good if not better than the original. From the processional music to the cocktail hour to the party itself your performance was flawless. We are so grateful to all of you for making the wedding a true fairytale for Bryan and Diane.
Thanks again for everything.
Addison Restaurant, 7/16/2011
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything! You were without question the BEST person to work with throughout the entire process- and without you our wedding would not have been the same...
Please stay in touch and let us know if you’re ever in NYC.
Welch /Brenner, 1/16/2011, "Pier Top" at Pier Sixty-Six
Debbie and the Band,
Thank you sooo much for giving us the party of our lives! After the wedding, our friends and family without fail, told us how much fun they had and how GREAT the band was! It was amazing how you could take a few song suggestions and extrapolate that into a full party set list!!! Every song was something we loved and you guys played it as good (or better) than the original. We had a wonderful time, much of which is due to you!
The Addison, 10/23/2010
Debbie, you and the band made our night truly unforgettable! Everyone had such a blast and kept telling me how they had never heard such an amazing band play at a wedding. ‘Our song’ was played so perfectly and to tell you the truth, we loved it even more than the original!! Without you this wedding would not have been complete. You are such a talented woman, but more than that you have a big heart and a caring soul. I’m so glad to have met you and hope we can stay in touch!
Thanks again for EVERYTHING,
The Palms Hotel, South Beach, 9/26/2010
Now it is time for me to send you a note to let you know just how lucky we feel that we chose to have The Debbie Taylor Band perform at Syndi and Hatem’s wedding.
We love Debbie and the entire band! They are amazing! Each and every member of the band is so talented. Together and individually they produce beautiful music. And what a wide range of beautiful music they perform. Their diversity is a true testament to their talent.
Special kudos to Debbie Taylor. She is a great band leader and a very special person. She not only sings beautifully, but she conducts herself in such a caring and professional manner. Debbie and her band truly prepared themselves for this most special occasion. Debbie really understood the kind of wedding that Hatem and Syndi wanted and she carried out all of their wishes beautifully.
In my opinion, the band is the number one most important component of the wedding reception besides the guests and the venue. The Debbie Taylor Band did not disappoint for even one moment. The place was rocking and everyone had a great time. The guests were on the dance floor the entire night! A great time was had by everyone and I must thank Debbie and her band for that.
Please let me know if they ever need a reference. It would be my pleasure to “sing” their praises.
All the best,
Boca Pointe, 6/13/2010
I need to send this to you and to whomever wants a band and a lead singer and a bandleader who will first listen and observe, then suggest, then do more listening and observing, then do more suggesting, and finally help create an event with an atmosphere far beyond expectations of joy and energy to the point of corralling every guest to the dance floor to express his/her love for the guests of honor! Debbie, I could not have imagined a more perfect person to really be the ringleader of our wedding! From our first conversation in Barnes and Noble, you know (because I told you :) ) that I felt like our vision was your vision, and that's really the ideal partnership, in any context, but especially for our wedding. And from then on, you listened and made my sending numerous emails to you almost humorous, putting me at ease and emphasizing how your job was to make our wedding the most memorable it could be. And I swear, I will share a glass of vino with you at some point in life! :) On the wedding day itself, you remembered how Adam loves his Lady Gaga, and I love how, in your first meeting with him before the ceremony, you brought that up and made him feel comfortable too! You have to know that all his friends out here keep bringing up how they've never seen Adam so animated and so alive as he was "singing" and dancing to "Bad Romance". I honestly have never seen my new husband so full of life and energy as he was on our wedding day, and I credit you and Standing Ovation for a large part of that: Before the wedding, I warned Adam that I would be on the dance floor most or all of the night and that I hoped he would be with me; Adam wasn't so confident, but he said he'd see. Well, as his friends also remind him and me, Adam didn't leave the dance floor all night--an occurrence no one, including Adam, could have predicted, but everyone is only amazed by! Thank you. You and Standing Ovation kept the energy level at a constant high, from your choice of music to getting out onto the floor with dancers.
I honestly felt like you and the band had known my family and my friends for years, and you were sharing in our joy as members of that family! And you must also know that if you ever want to come out to Colorado, I could book you for two weddings immediately! Four of our friends left our wedding and subsequently asked us if they thought you and Standing Ovation would ever travel to sing at their weddings! You've set the bar high for them, and I'm so incredibly proud to say that you did it at our wedding!
Thank you so much, Debbie and Standing Ovation...You truly made the wedding of our dreams come true!
Boca Pointe, 6/13/2010
I was invited to a friend's house for the fourth and another friend was also invited. Both couples were at Jen and Adam's wedding. Well, the conversation got around to what a wonderful affair we had and then both couples said," Wow! The band was fabulous!" They loved all the music that you played. In fact, one friend kept commenting that you went from slow oldies to Motown and then Lady Gaga. He was amazed saying that you sang all the genres of music soooooo well!!!! We were beaming from ear to ear because we were so happy that YOU were playing at B'nai Torah when we came to listen. No other band could possibly have been a better fit for us. You have an incredible voice and after talking and listening to you as well as feeling all the heart and emotion you put into Jen's wedding, we know that you also are a very special person. I am so happy that our paths connected even if just for a little while.
Wishing you a lifetime of love and laughter,
B'nai Israel, 5/01/2010
I'm sorry it's taken us so long to contact you; we have finally come down from the wedding and recently returned from the honeymoon. We truly wanted to thank you for EVERYTHING! You made our wedding the most amazing, memorable, fun night of our lives. From our indecisiveness to our multiple e-mails during the week of the wedding, you were nothing but supportive and reassuring. I can't tell you how many comments we received from family and friends regarding how incredible you and your band were. Throughout the evening, everyone kept coming up to us asking, "Are you sure that is actually your band playing and not a CD?" They could not believe how great you sounded, and neither could we. The week following the wedding we got numerous comments from guests asking how our same band performed the Hora and then did a Kesha song. To this day, over a month after the wedding, we are still hearing about your band and you "made the party."
Debbie, thank you so much for everything. We appreciate you making the most special night of our lives even better.
All our love,
B'nai Israel, 5/01/2010
Honey and I would like to thank you for making the wedding such a fantastic night. Everyone raved about the music. My daughter Jamie had to keep turning around to make sure you guys were singing and it was not the radio with the original artist. The night flowed perfectly and I haven’t danced that much since the 70’s. Jackie and Josh had the wedding to remember and it wouldn’t have happened without you.
Thank you so very much,
Temple Kol Tikvah, 6/22/2008
Wow,Wow,Wow!!! All night long we received compliments about you & Standing Ovation. Plus the ongoing phone calls we received after the wedding complimenting you. Everyone enjoyed your beautiful voice & also the selection of music. Family & friends were amazed how the band played continuously without a break & enjoyed the music. You & the band were perfectly perfect! You’re a beautiful lady & have great presence. You add so much warmth & energy. We all had a wonderful & fun time dancing the night away. You are a delight & a pleasure & we look forward to seeing you at our next child’s wedding. Thank you for making Corey & Morgan’s wedding beautifully memorable. You’re the best!!!
P.S. Rabbi Gutnick raved about you!
Hyatt Pier 66, 2/17/2008
Now that our lives are getting back to normal after our memorable wedding at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 on February 17, 2008, I wanted to drop you a note to thank you and your band for all your attention and hard work in making this important event so “over the top”. I have received numerous phone calls and even written notes to say how much our guests enjoyed the evening, how phenomenal the music was and how beautiful you were. As you and I discussed, the music really set the tone for an amazing evening. I was always confident in your musical ability and pleased with your talent and experience to “read the crowd” that kept our guests up and moving.
It’s always nice to receive compliments on a job well done, but I am especially delighted when sophisticated and worldly guests who have attended numerous, elegant affairs and charity events raved about our choice of musicians. I know it was an eclectic choice of music that was requested so “hats off” to you and your band for pulling it all together so professionally. Everyone was happy. Thanks for holding the hands of the nervous parents and accommodating all our special requests. Ian and Elisha had their dream and their vision come true thanks to you and your part in making it happen. I can’t wait to see the video to relive that amazing evening. It was a night to remember forever.
Dadeland Marriott, 4/5/2008
Art and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your band for making Karen and Brian's wedding such a huge success. From the moment we met you, we loved your wonderful personality, your warmth and that you were concerned about every little detail of our wedding. We also appreciated your immediate response to our e-mails and that you were so willing to learn the songs that we wanted played if you didn't know them. We can't tell you how many people have complimented you and your band -- everyone was so impressed. Our wedding was so lively and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the evening. All of that is attributed to you and Standing Ovation. We went into the evening with high expectations but we must admit, that you went above and beyond what we expected. Thank you so much for everything. We have already given your number to one of our friends and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you or use you again at another affair. Music Associates is very lucky to have Debbie Taylor and Standing Ovation represent them -- you do it so well!

Indian Creek Country Club, 12/1/2007
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an incredible performance at our wedding. Your vocals and musical accompaniment paralleled the sounds of the songs true to the record. You promised ‘Lady in Red’ would be true to the original in tempo, form and verse. And so it was allowing us to perform our choreographed dance with ease. Thank you for changing the last verse to ‘Lady in White’. It meant so much to me! Your band is really amazing. Alexander and I went to a wedding in DC last weekend. Apparently their band was “the best in the area”. Well let’s just say they were not up to par with you. They did not play continuously; rather, they put on a CD and took long breaks. When they were on, they did not play music to keep the crowd going. Thank you for being a truly hands on MC and Lady in charge! That allowed me to have fun and enjoy the party. You are by far the Best Band in South Florida. You deserve the greatest accolades. Thank You!
Maria and Alexander Gary
Temple Beth Emet, March 31, 2007
Thank you for making our wedding an amazing night that we will always remember. The entire band was exceptional and not only did we thoroughly enjoy ourselves but we have gotten countless compliments from our guests. You truly know how to take the event to the next level and you clearly devoted a lot of time, effort and consideration in making the music and atmosphere so special and celebratory. We are so grateful that you played “G-d only knows” for us and we definitely had the time of our lives! We hope to hear your band at another event soon!

Dear Debbie and the guys,
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for making our wedding celebration so wonderful. Your energy, enthusiasm, and personalities are what drew us to you in the first place and on May 26th we finally were given the opportunity to see you in action!
Debbie, we can’t thank you enough. Your willingness to please is overwhelming. You were always wonderful with a quick response to ALL of our emails and answered all of our questions without a problem. You were prepared to help us figure things out in reference to choosing of songs and how our evening would fall into place. We must admit, knowing you and your level of competence, there was never a concern.
Your professionalism was very obvious when you were asked to work with a hotel and banquet team, and photography that you never worked with before. We owe our seamless wedding to you!
Every member of your band has such great personalities; they really work very well together. Their talents with your vocals really added to the essence of our wedding. One of our most memorable moments was when you sang the Phantom of the Opera song as a duet. We can remember just staring at the two of you and just listening and watching the awesome performance.
We told you that our group likes to dance and thanks to you and the guys, the dance floor was never empty. We will not hesitate to call you up for a future event.
Thanks so much for adding so much to our wedding celebration!
June 22 2007
Cheryl and I want to take this opportunity to thank you and tell you how impressed we were with your performance at our son’s wedding. We cannot tell you how many people complemented us on the band and told us that it made the wedding a great success.
As a result of playing at our wedding, we have referred you to many of our friends and will continue to do so!
Remember, we still have (3) more daughters and we expect you to be there at each of their weddings!!
Thanks again, you are truly a talented and wonderful individual.
Frenchman’s Reserve, June 2007
“Its The Debbie Taylor Band” towering above your expectations. My wife and I are quite picky about music and really into an experience of entertainment. After selecting and meeting privately with Debbie, we knew our wedding was in special hands. When the big day came, our expectations were blown away. This band is off the chart, they just keep getting better and better! You must trust them and let them shake your groove thing. The only way you can lose is to select someone else!

Diplomat Hotel, August 2007
Now that I almost recovered and have come back down to earth from the excitement of my party, I want to thank you for helping to make August 18th a day that I will always remember as the best birthday party I have ever had over my four score years of life..
The musical selections were terrific. The way your Band played was terrific. (My guests danced so much that they barely took the time to eat!) The song performances were of star quality.
You received the most deserved rave reviews from my guests. You and your Band could not have been better... and I could not have been more pleased and appreciative! Thank you.
Thank you so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. It was a night we will cherish forever and having you as our bandleader made it amazing. So many of our friends commented on” how great the band was,” so we thought we would pass that along to you. Everything was perfect! We will definitely be passing your name along to anyone we known planning an affair. Thanks for everything!
Bonnie & Wayne Miller
Dear Music Associates,
We wanted to write a letter to you to absolutely praise The Debbie Taylor Band!!! We were married on February 28th at the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort and we could not be more thrilled! We had several different occurrences that could have upset any bride/groom. This particular evening, although the daytime was beautiful, the evening turned into a slight mini hurricane. We were supposed to be married outside but had to bring the ceremony and cocktail hour in at the last minute, with a broken chuppah. In addition, at about the first course of our meal, our photographer came up to us and asked us if he could leave. The point in telling you all of this is Debbie really saved the day for us. She had a positive attitude that was contagious. We mentioned to her about our photographer and she had a take charge attitude and made sure we did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding night. The band listened to what we wanted and played every single song we mentioned to them. We extended them a half hour but if we had them play all night long, our guests would still be there dancing away. We have been to (and will be at) so many weddings but none of their bands will compare to our band, The Debbie Taylor Band. Thank you so much for taking such good care of us and for “making” our wedding!!!
Dear Music Associates & Debbie Taylor,
Our daughter’s wedding was Nov 12 2005 and we are still on cloud nine! Words cannot say how fantastic Debbie and the band were! They performed all evening at the highest energy level. Their voices were so beautiful and our guests were up dancing all night. The duet that Debbie and her singer Al performed was incredible! Our guests cannot stop raving about our band. The band truly makes the party! This summer my son is getting married in Baltimore MD and his future mother-in-law wants to hire ‘our band’ ! We would be happy to give Debbie & Standing Ovation a raving recommendation to future clients..
Fountainebleau Hotel July 6th 2013
Debbie and her crew were as usual, beyond perfection and I'd never hesitate to recommend them.
Professional,Punctual, Perky…great sound/fabulous song list; accommodating to requests and of course Debbie is the best "Emcee" in the Bizz!
She really "gets it" and makes not only the clients but the guests feel like VIP's at an exclusive party.
I know that everyone had a wonderful time - mostly in part to the Divine Ms Debbie and her Talented Team!
All the best,
Ms. Debbie Taylor - Bandleader Extraordinaire!
Thank you again for being such a fabulous person and amazing “leader” (of more than just a “band”). You are an absolute joy to work with and are not only extraordinarily beautiful on the outside but have an “inner beauty” to match. We are extremely fortunate to have been treated to your talents for the second year running and hope to be able to work more with you in the future. The band was fantastic and the energy in that ballroom was electric!
As you know, the Founders Ball is one of our major annual fundraising events. While the food and décor are important components, the event simply doesn’t “gel” without wonderful music. You and your tremendous team really kept up the momentum and as usual you were amazing to work with. Nothing phases you! I especially appreciate your patience and follow through in the pre planning process and your professionalism and “can do” attitude on the night of the party!
We’re just lucky people to have met you. I’m looking forward to the next time we have a party together!
Thanks again to you and all the Standing Ovation members!
Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation, September 25, 2007
Summer is over and plans are under way to lock all the details in place for next season. We’re all looking forward to next year’s “Founders Ball” on March 22, 2008! The main reason for all of our excitement is due to you and your extremely talented “Band Mates” who truly “rocked the house” at this year’s Gala. We are still receiving rave reviews from folks who’ve attended our Events for many years – all pretty much confirming that this past year was the “Best Ever.”
As you know, our donors are getting younger – at least a third at the last Ball were under 50 and they absolutely loved the event. What made it special is the fact that you pulled this off seamlessly with our Veteran Founders having an equally great time. Not an easy feat! We’ve even had compliments from people who are involved in planning Galas for other charities, saying that we’re going to be a tough act to beat…
So there’s the challenge for you. Next year will be even bigger and better! I can’t divulge our theme yet, but suffice it to say that it’s over the top and promises to be even more fun. We will have fantastic décor and excellent food again at the Intercontinental – but it just won’t be Fabulous without you and “the guys.” We’re so looking forward to having you entertain our important guests again, and in keeping with your Orchestra’s name: it will truly be a STANDING OVATION!!!
Thanks again for contributing to our success – keep on playing and see you next March!
September 18, 2006
On behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, please accept my most sincere thanks for sharing your musical talents with us at so many of our events. You always make the evening wonderful by bringing your beautiful voice and your outstanding musicians with you. You have become an important part of our fundraising team and many of our long time supporters look forward to hearing you perform.
We are fortunate to have your support of the lifesaving work we are doing at the CF Foundation and I wanted to take the time to tell you that you are very much appreciated. We realize a large portion of our fundraising dollars from special events and you have always helped to make them successful.
I hope you will continue to be part of our efforts and I hope you will be there to sing at the party we’ll have on the day that CF stands for “cure found”.
With kind regards,
Please forgive me for this overdue letter of thanks for the outstanding entertainment your band provided for the “Queen of Hearts …… A Knight to Remember” 2001 Boca Raton Heart Ball.
From the planning stages in the very beginning to the execution of the actual event, the performance could not have gone more smoothly, and your music selection was top notch. The Debbie Taylor Band is one dynamic talent, and there is no way that this letter can ever contain enough thanks and praise to truly do you justice.
You had our guests entertained from the minute they arrived at 7:00 p.m. until they departed at midnight. Keeping 450 people happy for 5 hours straight, as we all know in this business, is close to impossible. Your company did this without a hitch and our guests are still talking and raving about it!
We are gearing up for next year’s event, and I certainly hope we have the opportunity to work with you again. In the meantime, I will wholeheartedly recommend you and I will happily spread the word of your great performance!
As we reflect upon Donna Klein Jewish Academy’s 17th Benefit Ball, Saturday evening, we would like to thank you for helping to make this event as successful as it was. The ball was an elegant evening and a lucrative one. Everyone had a wonderful time.
We cannot thank you enough for the role you played in creating the mood and setting the tone for the evening. Our event had a complicated program agenda. Incorporating a silent and live auction, a sit down formal dinner and a party where everyone is dancing is no small feat. We especially appreciate your attention to detail, making certain that everything was the way we had discussed. You went out of your way working with the hotel and our committee, always with a smile, always pleasant, always professional. As a master of ceremonies, you were second to none. Your music selection appealed to all groups and was most enjoyable, whether for our listening pleasure during dinner or dancing.
It was our pleasure to work with you and the rest of the band. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Donna Klein Jewish Academy family, we want to extend our utmost appreciation. We look forward to working with you on future events.
Thank you for supporting Donna Klein Jewish Academy “Where the Exceptional is Expected”.
Bar Mitzvah Testimonials
Dear Music Associates,
I have now had the pleasure of having Debbie Taylor perform at 4 functions of my own (two office parties and a Bar & Bat Mitzvah for my son and daughter), and one additional function for our local dental society.
I felt the need to let you know how pleased we have been with her singing, professionalism and her overall talent.
I also must tell you, at each of the four affairs without exception, virtually anyone and everyone I spoke with did not comment on the food, nor the place, nor the drinks, but instead could not help mention how great the music was. I heard only positive comments and the highest of praise for Debbie and her singing.
Every time I have seen her, she has given “one hundred and ten percent”, and has truly had the effect of making each affair great!
In all fairness, the other musicians playing along with Debbie
have also been fantastic as well.

Re: 60th Birthday Celebration
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for a fantastic evening last Saturday night at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel. Your band delivered exactly what I was looking for throughout the evening. Your music created the ideal backdrop to our cocktail hour and dinner and enabled people to talk and enjoy each other’s company without straining to hear or to be heard. When dinner was over, you quickly transitioned into one of the best dance bands I have ever experienced. I think you will agree that everyone was dancing and having a great time up until the very end of the evening. Thanks for staying the extra half hour for those people who just did not want the dancing to end!
Throughout the night, people asked me “how did you find such a great band?” I was happy to tell them about you and how carefully you listened to what I wanted for the evening. Thank you for listening and delivering! I am not sure when I will need a band next but, you can be sure that I will be calling you!
