    So glad we choose Turnaround Band with Raquel Berlind as the lead singer for our wedding reception.

    We wanted to go with a classy feel, decided to go with a live band. It made a huge difference and Turnaround and Raquel really showed up for us. They were very professional and a tight group that clearly love what they do.

    They provided music during the cocktail reception and during the dinner.

    Raquel worked with us, they learned the first dance we requested and even introduced an amazing dance teacher to give us a few lessons. The first dance was so much fun and everyone was surprised (even me!).

    Raquel has great energy and a great voice.

    I highly recommend this Quartet for any of your inspiring functions. – Steven M

    Alexey and his wonderful band of musicians infused our wedding ceremony–and the night–with just the right touch of mood-enhancing music that worked seamlessly with everything else we had going on. It was the perfect touch to our beautiful outdoor wedding by the magnificent Lake Tahoe.

    Alexey was a joy to work with from the moment we had our first conversation–a complete professional and very patient to boot. He gave us a lot of guidance while also being receptive to our requests and ideas.The Turnaround Band Jazz Quartet performed classical wedding music, switched to jazz, standard and bossa nova through cocktails and dinner to our guests’ delight. They even managed to crank out a couple of MJ tracks in jazz rendition (my husband’s a huge fan). We are satisfied and grateful clients and recommend them fully for any special event in need of quality musical entertainment.

    We hired the Turnaround Jazz trio for our wedding at the deYoung. In every step of the process they were responsive, accommodating, and very easy to work with. They did a lovely job playing during our dinner, making the evening truly wonderful and magical. There were many musicians at our wedding, and I got nothing but compliments on the excellent job they did!

    We hired the quartet to play at our wedding and cocktail hour and processional. Their music was fantastic, lively, and classy. We have numerous jazz fans at our wedding and have received multiple compliments on how great the Turnaround Jazz Band was. They arrived and set up early and were flexible in making the event exactly how we wanted it. I would fully recommend the Turnaround Jazz Band for any event.

    Thanks again! – Josh S.

    We were looking for a solid, incredible jazz band for our wedding in September 2012, and couldn’t have been happier with The Turnaround Jazz Quartet. We had been debating whether to go with a live band or a DJ, and I’m so glad that we found them. They were just amazing — energetic, smooth, and fun. They were also really good at keeping the kids at our wedding entertained with their music.

    We were especially impressed with their flexibility. Alexey worked with us to accomodate all our requests, and they even learned a new song outside their normal genre — a Harry Belafonte song (Calypso!) that my wife really loves — and they pulled it off wonderfully. They had the whole room going in a Tonga line!

    The vocalist, Raquel, was superb, adding a brightness and vibrancy that kept everyone dancing much longer than we’d anticipated. And Kevin, the piano player, also performed during our ceremony, helping us select just the right music for the processional.

    Overall, they were just perfect. We got so many compliments on them. We can’t wait for the next opportunity to hear them play. We’d book them again in a second. – Kurt P.
