“Amazing band that really connects with the crowd. We accidentally ordered an outdoor dance floor that was a size larger than we needed. Or so we thought. It was PACKED edge-to-edge the whole night. Carl and company had an energy, personality, song selection, and performance vibe that kept everyone going for hours. Two phrases I heard over and over were “Where did you GET these guys?” and “The band is unbelievable.” And they’re so great to work with. If you want to be SURE, this is your band.”

“The Quake Band was AMAZING!! We had a last minute cancellation and the saved us and gave us the most fun and unique wedding reception I could’ve imagined. The entire crowd was on the dance floor the whole night, dancing to a wide variety of songs for all different age groups. All our guests are saying it’s the best wedding they’ve been to, and a HUGE amount of that is credited to this band. They even worked with me to surprise my husband by performing a song with the band! Unforgettable night. I would recommend The Quake Band in a heartbeat.”

“Carl was fantastic from day 1! He was very informative and quick to respond to any calls or emails. The day of the wedding we had no worries because they had everything perfectly in order. The music was amazing and our family and friends danced ALL night!! They played all genres of music and couldn’t have been better! Thank you Carl and to the rest of the band for making our night so memorable and fun!! We will definitely never forget it.”

“Carl and his band The Quake are incredible musicians and true professionals.  They kept our wedding party on the dance floor the entire time and nailed our first dance song (“God Only Knows” Beach Boys) which we asked them to learn.  I cannot recommend The Quake enough!  If you want to make sure your guests have a good time at your wedding…. HIRE THE QUAKE!”

“There’s no way our wedding reception would have gone as smoothly, or been as exciting and unforgettable without The Quake. Between the fantastic variety of music and Carl’s emceeing, they ran the show; heck, they were the show!! They had everyone up on their feet and dancing the minute we finished our first dance – what a way to get the party started! And the dance floor was never empty. I can’t even say how many compliments about the band we’ve got from friends and family who attended. The Quake’s professionalism and their genuine desire to HAVE FUN was evident and quite contagious at that. We would recommend The Quake to anyone and everyone.”

“Carl and the Quake played at my daughter’s wedding reception for 190 people in a tent at the base of Elk Mountain on Sept 6, 2014. They were absolutely incredible. Everyone was dancing all night and comments from the folks attending were that it was their favorite band ever! Actually some folks knew too that this was the SECOND engagement with the Quake for the Young family. Carl and his group also played at our son’s wedding in 2010.

We previewed multiple bands before making our choice in 2010. Carl and his band are simply the best dance/wedding band in the greater Philadelphia area. We recommend them highly as do our family and friends!”

“When we met with Carl and the Quake we told them all we wanted for our wedding was to have everybody dancing ALL night. Sitting was not an option. Luckily, having seen them at my brother’s wedding 2 years earlier, I knew they would fulfill my request and in no way did they disappoint! From the minute introductions started until the very last song, they had the all of our guests on their feet. Their selection of songs to keep the party going was fantastic and they played the few requests we had perfectly. 

I can’t tell you the amount of people that came up to me that night and told me how amazing the band was and how if they have an event, they will definitely be calling The Quake. I am lucky my brother found them 2 and a half years ago and I was thrilled they were here with us on our special day. They even allowed a few of our guests to take the stage with them and sing to us. From start to finish, the whole night was perfect and we could not have asked for more. Everybody knows that one of the main components of a successful event is the entertainment. People may not remember the flowers or the food, but they usually remember the music. We know all of our guests had the best time because of the entertainment we choose. Thanks again to The Quake! You really rocked it!”

“Thanks again for everything you did to make our wedding the most fun that most guests had ever experienced. We were told on numerous occasions by many different people that they typically didn’t even enjoy weddings, but had more fun than they’d ever had at ours. The job you did from the beginning until the end was a very big piece of that. Not only was the music phenomenal, but you did an outstanding job of getting people out of their chairs and really turning it into a party. People danced the entire time and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you again and we’ll certainly be recommending you to any friends/family in the future.”

“I wanted to send a personal letter your way, but haven’t had a chance so decided I better use email so the message would get to you sooner. The evening was lovely! Thank you for everything. What I can share with you was the chatter that I heard during the event and afterward was AMAZING! Everyone had a fun time – which says a lot because I know a lot of fundraisers can be boring. Gauging by the response from the crowd – I think everything was great. Thank you for your generous pricing and generous spirit. You were a delight to work with in the planning – and I appreciated your help with the Audio portion of our program.

Have a great summer – and my best to you and your band.”

“We would like to thank you for everything. Our wedding was perfect and has everything to do with you and your band. THE QUAKE is the best band ever. We had an amazing time and everyone was talking about you guys. We were extremely impressed with the way Rudy and the band played the Dave Matthews song that we had our first dance too. You really blew the roof off and the song was on point. Your selection of music was great and all the vocalists were perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you and we will be recommending you to our friends and family!!!”
