Take care, Lisa S.", Estes Park

"I just wanted to thank you again for blowing the doors off our wedding reception last Saturday night in Grand Lake. Our guests have told us that we had the most fun wedding reception music EVER and frankly, Dan and I had much more fun than we thought we would. Thank you for making sure everything went smoothly, and thank you for keeping the dance floor packed all night. My fondest memory of the wedding reception was during the last few songs of the last set (Glory Days, Don't Stop Believing, Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night) when literally every single person in that place was jumping up and down. You all ROCKED it, and we are so appreciative. Blinded By The Light was.... AWESOME. Dan and I listened to the album version this weekend and we were amazed that the band nailed all of the solos and all of the crazy effects. Swayed and sang during the verses, jumped and air-guitared during the choruses. I can verify that EVERYONE danced. It was SO fun to dance to that song !" - Emily S., Grand Lake, CO

"Thank you so much! What a night! Amazing wedding reception music. As I said after the wedding, you guys absolutely killed it. The ceremony sounded great, the dinner music was phenomenal (So What, Stella Blue..Are you kidding me? SICK!) and once the dancing began you kept that place rocking all night.
There were some tough music critics in that crowd (none tougher than me) and you blew them all away! In addition, you had Hilary dancing for over 3 hours, and she doesn’t dance!!! Hands down the best dance band I’ve ever seen at a wedding. Many of the guests said the same thing. To top it off, you allowed Rorey and Zeb to play with you which meant more to me than you could possibly imagine. I told you the story at the end of the night.
I’ve been racking my brain to find an occasion to hire you guys again. Don’t worry, I’ll think of something! If I can ever serve as a reference please let me know.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I picked out three things…the bride, the band, and the bar… and you didn’t let me down."
-Bob S. Donovan Pavilion, Vail

"I wanted to thank you for making our wedding the amazing celebration and party that it was. You guys totally rocked!!! I know I expressed how important music and dancing was to both and Josh and I, and you totally exceeded our expectations. So many of our friends and family asked us how we found your dance band, and told us how amazing they thought you were. You went above and beyond with the Hora, and I’m quite certain we set a Boulder record for the longest hora in history. Your band played a huge role in making my wedding one of the most wonderful and fun nights of my life. I would be more then happy to write a testimonial for your website< or to act as a referral for any future couples (especially Jewish ones looking for a lively hora!). We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know getting married, and I’m sure Jessica our wedding coordinator will too! Please pass along these words of praise to the other members of the band. Thanks again!!!" - Karen, Boulder

"Well, I’ll add my accolades to all the others. Matt and everyone in Spotlight Band were terrific: Fantastic music, great fun, NICE people! The Spotlight dance band was beyond doubt the best money we spent for our daughter’s wedding reception. I wish we had another daughter so we could book you again . . . Alas, we don’t. But we’ll sing your praises to every client we’ve got. I just hope we get to dance with you again at another party someday! Thank you, THANK YOU!!"
-Jan and Guy B. Santa Fe, New Mexico

"Just chiming in to echo my wife's remarks. You guys did a fantastic job and I can't count how many people asked us how we found such a great dance band for our wedding reception music, so we hope to see you again at some of our friends' upcoming nuptials. ;) Also, we appreciate you being able to change directions at the drop of a hat to keep the party rockin'! We had a blast and all of our friends were blown away by your expansive repertoire and playing ability, and these are people who see 100's of shows a year and know what good music is, so again, thanks!"
- Josh, Boulder

"I just wanted to tell you how much difference you made at Emily's and Chris's wedding reception. Emily and I did not agree initially about the music and even a live wedding band. We were coming from 2 different generations. How fortunate that we ran across your band. It made it all work beautifully.
You all are so talented and nailed Patsy, Metallica and rock. Everyone danced and just had a blast. I left briefly and when I came back all the young people were jumping around facing you and just listening like they were at a concert. It was a great moment.
Your video on line doesn't do you justice cause you ROCK. I also love that you were so professional yet cool. Matt you did a fantastic job with MC as well. Thanks again."
-Susie and Gary F.

"...Exactly what we were looking for; talented wedding reception musicians capable of performing our non-traditional favorites as well as wedding dance songs ...If only our friends had a live wedding band (and a local band too boot!) for their wedding reception like this I would've quit whining during the first song!"
-Danny, Groom, Denver, CO

"First of all, I want to say that your cover band made our wedding what it was. You are all so talented and we couldn't have asked for anything better. We had so many people come up to us to tell us how great the band was. Our friend Cliff told us it was the best live wedding band he has ever heard and I agree. Thanks for the great jam music. I almost felt like I was at a concert! You all were great!

-Heather, bride, Estes Park, CO


"Tell the band they were just fabulous: the sound, the music, the singing, the songs. Everyone was so pleased. We had dancers from under 2 to 90+!" -DeDe C., bride's mom, Monarch, CO
"Thank you and the Spotlight Dance Band for a great experience - we had so much fun at the wedding! Best, -Lisa & Martin, Santa Fe, NM

"My one concern was for our wedding music and you guys went above and beyond any expectations I had. The "Buster" to "Antelope" was killer. Everyone had great things to say. Thanks for being so flexible and giving us a great day!"

-Ryan, Estes Park, CO


"Bing who was a guest at Justin and Miko's Wedding on St. Patrick's Day said to be sure to tell everyone, "This is absolutely the most bad-a$$ wedding dance band ever! I had a blast!"

-Bing, Tabernash, CO


"I just wanted to drop u a note and tell u thx!! everything was great! all of u did a wonderful job! everyone thought the band was great! thx again!"

-Wally B, Father of the Bride, Scottsbluff, NE


"Thank you so much for venturing to Steamboat and helping to make our wedding ceremony and wedding reception music so special. You all were incredible and helped make the wedding reception amazing. Everyone raved about you the entire evening and long afterwards. We have already recommended you to several people as well! You were a pleasure to work with and are all very talented musicians. Thank you again for being such an important part of our special day - we love the Spotlight Band!"

- Liz & Mark, Steamboat Springs, CO


"Your band is amazing!"

- Maria K., Denver, CO


"You guys "rocked"...David and I wanted to pop in to say thanks again for making our wedding reception music so amazing.

People are still talking about how GREAT the band was. We really appreciated all your enthusiasm and love for music. Thanks again!"

-Lisa & David E., Rapid City, SD


"The Spotlight Band was just the kind of wedding entertainment we needed. Everything went without a hitch. They were there, set up and ready to go ahead of schedule. I've known a few cover bands in my day, and believe me, that's a biggie. They were everything I expected and more. This is a versatile, tight dance band for a wedding, capable of soft dinner music to hard-driving rock 'n roll, and everything in between. The two-person version of the band (flute and guitar for the wedding ceremony music) even learned and played a song that I wrote for my bride as she walked down the aisle. That's service! I highly recommend the Spotlight Band if you need a dance band for a wedding or corporate party."

-Andrew M., Breckenridge, CO


"It was truly a pleasure meeting you and the Spotlight Band. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a job well done. Your ability to transition from cocktails to dinner and back to full dancing was spectacular! And I loved the effort above and beyond with the Swedish folk song. You have truly won my heart for future events. I look forward to working with you again in Breckenridge."

-Michelle Bennewitz, Wedding & Event Planner


"You guys were awesome. I will be sure to recommend you to everyone and anyone. What a party band! We had a blast and I hope you had fun with us rowdy New Yorkers. Sorry I kept stealing the mic from you at the end. I was the happy and drunk bride! Thanks for everything."

-the Killians


"Thank you all for making our wedding day unforgettable! We had such a wonderful time. You all were absolutely amazing! Thank you for spending so much time coordinating and making everything perfect. You guys were great. ;-)"

-Jared & Ashley


"The Spotlight Variety Band was our wedding reception band for our wedding in April of 2003, and we were very pleased with the job that they did. When we were looking for a live band for our wedding, we were on a budget and getting very discouraged at the prices many of the dance bands and variety bands were asking for. When we found The Spotlight Band, they were so affordable that we were initially worried that they were "too good to be true". We definitely got more than we paid for!

The band has a very versatile and diverse play list including all the favorite wedding dance songs, and Matt Bassano worked with us to choose our "special" songs such as first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. He paid close attention to specific songs and types of wedding dance songs that we wanted and did not want to be played at the reception, and respected our wishes. Matt professionally worked with the hotel wedding coordinator to make sure that both set-up and the entire wedding reception went perfectly. The Spotlight Band was punctual, prepared, and looked very appropriate for the occasion. They sounded great at the reception, with some wonderful voices for the singing. We were definitely happy with them.

Matt also performed the traditional piano music for our wedding ceremony music, and we were equally pleased with his work there. He had excellent suggestions for us when we were uncertain as to our options, was professional at all times, and sounded very good.

I would not hesitate to recommend Matt Bassano and The Spotlight Variety Band if you need a live band for a wedding reception or other event."

- Carolyn, Bride, Denver, CO


Spotlight did an absolutely fantastic job and I am so glad they enjoyed themselves too!

We had a ball and it was really nice that Matt allowed my friend Harwood to get up and sing and honored a few of our impromptu requests.

It really was a pleasure working with you all. I would highly recommend Ad Hoc and Spotlight Wedding Band to anyone.

-Hilary, Bride, Lyons, CO


"We just want to thank you and the band for doing such a fabulous job at our wedding. You were so wonderful, and all we got were compliments about how good you were. Hopefully we'll be able to hear you play again in the future. Thanks again!"

-Rick & Sarah D., Denver, CO


"Fabulous job at our wedding! Thanks so much, everyone loved the variety band. We will be recommending the Spotlight Band for weddings of our friends." - Peter & Gretchen, The Sanctuary, Sedalia


"I didn't get a chance at the wedding reception but I wanted to thank you guys for the show you put on. You guys made the dance party rock! Thanks again for making our day that much more awesome!"
