Hi Joe,
Just wanted to drop you a quick thank you before we leave for our honeymoon.... You guys were amazing. This morning, all we kept hearing from our guests was how you guys blew everyone away, everyone had a great time!
Also, the Molly Pitcher is adding you to their sheet of references because they were so impressed.  Our maitre'de said that each time she opened the doors to the kitchen, the cooks were singing along at the top of their lungs... even they seemed to have a great time and love the music.
I'm sure you realized what a great time everyone was having (based on the chanting at the end of the night for you guys to keep playing!!!), but I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all the hard work you guys put into it.
Thanks so much for making it the best night of our lives.  :)

"We are so happy we hired the Joe Baracata Band for our wedding reception. The Band really kept the dance floor packed and were extremely professional. For weeks after our wedding, all of our friends and family raved about how great the band was. The Band couldn't have been a better fit for our wedding. The song selection for the whole evening was outstanding. I couldn't be more pleased with how great the Joe Baracata Band was at our wedding reception!"

"Dear Joe and "The JB Band",

All I can say is that you guys R-O-C-K-E-D the house during our party!! Every single guest there has either called me or personally told me that it was an AWESOME time and that, and I quote, "The band made the night!" So, the only question remains is...When is the encore?! Can't thank you enough for the energy, perfect song list selections and the performance! The sets were spot on, tight and sounded as if we were at the actual concert for every song! Keep up the great work, and we will absolutely see you next year! YOU ARE BOOKED!!

Best regards,"

Joe is the best!!! He and his guys MADE our wedding AMAZING!!! They're professional, reliable, and above all AWESOME MUSICIANS!!! They had the whole party rockin' so hard that we practically had to drag our guests off the dance floor in order to get them to leave at the end of the night. Two years later and our friends and family are still talking about how great the band at our wedding was. Plus, seeing our 200 guests (young and old) fist pumping to livin' on a prayer was a highlight of our night! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a great band, with a lot of heart and soul to play their wedding. No doubt they know how to get the party started and keep it going!

Hey, Joe. 
The music for our wedding far exceeded our expectations! The guests were on their feet the entire night. For months after the wedding all our friends and family kept raving about the band.   
You were easy to work with, you played all of our favorites and I have recommended your band to all of my newly engaged friends. Thank you for everything! You are the best!!

"Dear Joe and Band"

I hope you are having a happy new year! Thank You so much for playing at our formal in December. From start to finish you guys were really awesome and could not have done a better job. My classmates thought the band was great and kept asking me who you guys are. By the end of the night, you got everyone out on the dance floor - that was amazing! Thank you again!!!  See you this summer.

We couldn't ask for anything more for our wedding at Shadowbrook and the Joe
Baracata band exceeded all expectations. This band rocked through the night and
people who didn't already know asked me over and over again, Who was that awsome
band at your wedding? Everybody knows that the music is the key to a great party
and Joe Baracata fully and successfully completed that mission. We felt proud
and secure knowing that this band was the best decision we made when planning
our wedding. Their voices are so professional and easy on the ear, people easily
can listen to them and feel excitement while eager to hear what they play next
for hours upon hours. They are more than a bar band, they are professional and
their realm of songs seems endless. They even learned a few extra songs that
were important to us and pulled them off beautifully. To us, it was important to
bring the sounds of the Jersey Shore to our wedding, but even if you aren't from
the Jersey Shore (like many who came in from out of state for our wedding)
absolutely loved this band and wanted to hire them for their special events. We
couldn't have asked them for more and they will always be celebrated and
appreciated more than they know in our hearts. The Joe Baracata band just simply

Dear Joe and Band,  

Well, we can't thank you enough for such an awesome night! When we first got engaged one of the first things we decided on was asking you to play at our wedding! We knew it was exactly the kind of party we wanted and we had a blast! I can't even tell you the amount of compliments we got on "our" band.  You guys were amazing!

and.. We owe our Wedding Song selection to you.  It was perfect for us ( and we'll always be that awesome couple who played Metallica at their wedding)  haha!

Thanks for everything

 "For the last three years our annual holiday gala would not be a true party without Joe Baracata.  The band is awesome, our 150 guests vary in age and the band plays music from different gendres and decades to make sure everyone is having a good time and dancing.  At the end of the day what truly makes a party is the MUSIC. It is now part of our tradition."  Bellaria - MetLife, NJ
