Letters of Recommendation

Dear Mark,
I would want to thank you for an excellent job by Sambita during my daughter’s wedding at Astor’s Beechwood Mansion in Newport last October 5th. Both the Bride & Groom - Lisette & Sean - expressed their amazement how wonderful the music was during the evening, and our guests from all over the world had the best time ever and told to us that they won’t soon forgot this event. We both know it’s all about the music! From the very beginning of your Wedding Ceremony accompaniment by Flute & Keyboard, to the Cocktail Hour with Guitar, Bass and Percussion and Sambita during the Reception & Dinner Dance - very professional and the best selection of Latin and standard American dance music. You certainly got the party going. Th e event planners at Astor’s and Russell Morin Fine Catering were amazed that you only took one break! Congratulations on a job well done. We will most certainly recommend you highly.

Wedding Party of Lisette & Sean


Phenomenal!!! I dream of dancing to their music! Mark is a genius when it comes to reading the crowd and bringing out everyone's joy by giving them the perfect song and beat! There is no combination he can't master!!! At my wedding they gave Salsa to Latin lovers and timeless powerful hits to Indians and Americans! They kept everyone dancing and laughing and loving!!! I dream of them playing in Cape Cod by the beach the unmatched amazing salsa song "Cali Pachanguero"! I will always remember that they made me the happiest bride when they superbly performed that highly complex song which they learned for me!

Dear Mark,
Although this note is long overdue, it comes to you with our sincere thanks for the outstanding musical performance of your band. It was our son Tom Hand’s wedding to Megan Cassella at the Peabody Essex on September 20th, and you accomplished all that we hoped you would do for us. You provided us with a memorable, joy-filled, fun evening with unbelievable instrumentation and arrangements. Tom and Megan will never forget all that you did for them. Your professionalism, talent, and expertise were tremendous. Your kind words to all of us were truly appreciated. From the moment we said hello during the cocktail hour to the last note that you played, we were thrilled. All that we hoped for came true, thanks to you and your band. Please convey our sincere appreciation to all of them. May you continue to be successful with your endeavors.
With warmest regards,

Tom & Janet


Dear Mark,
I wanted to thank you for a terrific evening! Sean and I were blown away with your band’s enthusiasm and range. My favorite part of the evening was on the dance floor with your rendition of Bel Biv Devoe, Poison! Totally unexpected, and everyone was loving it! We truly appreciated the atmosphere you created - it was exactly what we were hoping for. A fun party! We cannot thank you enough for such a terrific evening, on our special day. I have recommended you to 3 other friends that are getting married in the near future, so hopefully they will make the wise choice and book you!  ank you again for all you and your band’s hard work, and for the evening of a lifetime.
