Dear Gus & Arcadia,

We cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make our wedding great! You were perfect and more than we expected/hoped for! People are calling us left and right and complimenting on how great a job you did! You helped create amazing memories for us! The dance floor was crowded all night! Your continuous music was fantastic…as well as your song choice and ability to read the crowd! We definitely recommend you to anyone!

Dear Gus and the Band,
How can we ever thank you all for the incredible performance you guys put on at our wedding? You essentially made the party! It was amazing to work with you from start to finish. We came to 3 showcases during our engagement just because it was such a nice break from all our crazy planning and we enjoy you so much. Actually, your showcases are the perfect date night!
We really appreciate the time you took to learn these extra songs for us and I’m so thankful for all the time you gave me to create the perfect playlist. Your performance of our wedding song “Then” was more special than I ever could have imagined. The flow of the night was pulled off flawlessly, even the music during dinner was perfect. Everyone’s feet were killing them by the end of the night which is exactly what we wanted!
People are still talking about you guys and I recommend you to anyone who will listen.

THANK YOU ARCADIA! What a great band! I read a lot of reviews, listened to many local bands, & visited some showcases & learned that Arcadia is a top notch wedding band. I was right! After going to their showcase we booked Gus and from that moment we never worried about the music or whether our guests would have a good time. We didn’t need to. My friends and family had such a great time dancing no one wanted to leave the wedding. Not only did Arcadia sound great, but the songs they played were right on. A perfect mix of requested and non-requested songs. My father in law loved that you played a Rolling Stones song so much he had to get on stage and sing it himself! (Thanks for that!) Their version of our first dance “Forever” by Ben Harper was better than the original. “White Rabbit” was a great surprise and people are still talking about how awesome it sounded. For me, the best art of booking Arcadia was that Gus and the band members were a pleasure to work with and were so nice to my 5 year old nephew the day of the wedding. He loved being able to walk on the stage!!! Thank you! You will be highly recommended.

We booked arcadia after hearing them at my brother and sister in law’s wedding a year earlier. They did not disappoint. In fact – they may have only gotten better with time. Gus was great to work with and was very accommodating. We chose “you’re my best friend” by Queen as our first dance. Gus re-learned the song and rocked it! They put on a great Hora as well and really all of the songs they played were spot on. We got SO many compliments from our guests on the music and I can’t really remember most people in their seats – everyone was on the dance floor the whole night. They say the music is one of the most important aspects of a wedding and they are right – Gus and Arcadia helped make our wedding a fantastic / perfect night!!! We would recommend them 1000%!

My husband and I booked Gus and Arcadia, and they are, by far, the best band. Everyone, including my 77-year-old father, was on the dance floor all night!! We are an older couple (39 and 43), and we did not want our wedding to feel like a prom or a cheesy dance club. Arcadia played the right mix of music from all genres and for all generations, sounding so much like the original, or even better. All night long, so many people came up to us telling us how wonderful our band was. They continue to ask us about the band, and I already had a request for contact information by someone who is having an affair shortly. What drew us to Arcadia was the sound quality of all the musicians–bass, drums, percussions, guitar, keyboards and sax. Gus switches from guitar to sax when necessary, and the sound of the sax just adds such class and oomph to the particular song. Gus’s voice was also stellar, and it was also important to me to have at least one female singer–Arcadia has two, and they are out of this world!!! Tracy and Chrissy complement each other so well with their distinct but beautiful and fantastic voices. The band was extremely professional yet also so personable–they were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We could not have asked for better entertainment! We wish we could have another party soon just to have them rock the night for us again!

Gus and Arcadia did the most amazing job at our wedding! The dance floor was packed all night and they really listened to us when we had special requests. Our guests were so amazed and felt like they were at a concert! Arcadia really made the day so memorable.
Mariel & Michael
We had Arcadia play at our wedding reception, and they were AWESOME! The dance floor was packed with people the whole night. Gus was wonderful to work with during the planning months… he was always available to answer our questions and made recommendations whenever we needed them. The band did an excellent job at executing all of our requests. Everyone had a blast, and we still get compliments on how excellent the music was at our wedding.
Mara & Michael
They were the most awesome wedding band ever! Everyone raved about them! You guys rock!!! Thank you!
Victoria & Simmon
THE BEST!!! Everyone from my wedding is still asking for their number. The band Arcadia is by far the best bad out there. Everyone was dancing the entire time. They truly created a great day for us. They are the best in the business. I would highly highly recommend them!!!!
Dear Gus and Arcadia,
Where to start….words cannot express how amazing you guys are and how much you rocked our wedding. Nick and I have been hearing non-stop from our guests that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and “how incredible” the band was. As you guys have heard before, we had people saying that they had to keep looking to see if it was a band playing as you played each song so well people were convinced it was the original. The crowd fed off of you and in turn you fed off the crowd and it was just such an awesome party filled with great energy! We have friends of ours getting married next August who asked for all your info after our wedding and may have even contacted you already. We gave it to them happily as we are hoping to experience your awesomeness for a second time. We are referring you to everyone we know and cannot thank you enough for rocking out our wedding!!!
We love you guys,
Jenny & Nick
Dear Gus and Arcadia,
We are beyond pleased that we chose you for our wedding reception at the Garden City Hotel. Almost a year later and friends and relatives STILL talk about how incredible your performance was. We would like to sincerely thank you for all of the effort you put into making our reception the best day of our lives. The way in which you all performed our wedding song was better than we could have EVER expected. Your friendliness and professionalism surpassed our expectations & we will forever be grateful to you. We will continue to recommend you to everyone we know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
