“It was original, it was big, it was historic. And the BRIDES Dream Team Wedding at Walt Disney World could not have happened without you! Watching you and your fabulous musicians rock the Magic Kingdom from dawn until the end of the night was a thrill - such energy and excitement. I especially loved the choice to break into “Celebration” at the end of the ceremony, capturing the joy of that moment. We were honored to have you as part of the first-ever BRIDES Dream Team, and pleased to share your expertise with the readers of BRIDES in the editorials leading up to the wedding. Many thanks for your passion and enthusiasm for this project, and for a job very well done!”

“Kushner Entertainment’s SoundConnection was phenomenal! My husband and I did so much research to try to find the perfect band. To us, the band set the tone and Sound Connection did just that. I have never been to a wedding where just about every single person was on the dance floor. They were so good at reading the crowd and keeping people smiling and dancing all night long! We also decided to have a soprano sax and keyboardist during the ceremony and they were breathtaking. I also had a singer sing as I walked down the aisle and it definitely took my breath away. I will be forever grateful for having found Sound Connection. Our guests are still raving about them! I will highly recommend them to whoever wants to set the perfect tone for any party!”

“I am still reliving the night in my mind at wish we could do it all over again. Bellagio has never seen such an over-the-top display of entertainment! From the moment the doors opened, our guests were entertained non-stop. Thank you so much for bringing our vision to reality. We certainly stepped out of the box and truly gave our guests a full night of continuous entertainment. Andy, you and your talented performers of SoundConnection are fantastic and full of energy! Bellagio’s NYE Celebration was an incredible and outrageous night, and we were so happy to have you a part of it.”

“I’ve been to several weddings in New York City thinking each one had a tremendous band. However, after hearing and seeing SoundConnection perform at a friend’s recent wedding, they blew away every single band I ever saw in NYC. I can’t wait to have them at my own wedding!!”

Ben R., the knot ★★★★★

“Incredible sound, energy, and audience engagement. The Free was the most fun wedding band I've ever seen. Their great mash-ups kept guests entertained and impressed. We got continuous positive feedback from everyone that was there. Strongly recommended for anyone looking to have a once in a lifetime celebration!”

“PopCulture Strings was AWESOME!! As our guests arrived for the wedding ceremony, they were delighted to hear the beautiful string music. All the musicians smiled and warmly acknowledged the guests which was truly wonderful. THANK YOU!!!”

Janie I. ★★★★★

“Trio Caliente was absolutely fantastic in every way…Trio Caliente had my attendees dancing the night away the entire time, mixing current pop songs and the latin feel as well as latin/salsa/rumba music. I have already had at least five people approach me about booking them in the future. Perfect in every way. Book them now!”

Emily B., the knot ★★★★★

“Not enough positive comments could be said about the Kushner Entertainment team and Rhythm6 and how the team helped make our day so special. The coordination for the event ahead of time was seamless and the actual event blew us, and our guests, away -- honestly, our guests are still talking about how amazing Rhythm6 was! The band was so fun to work with, receptive to all types of new ideas (between new songs and our entrance to the main ballroom) and the energy in the room from the moment they stepped on the stage until the last song was more than we could have imagined.”

“If you don’t want a regular wedding band you MUST call Project Orange! We had wanted a classy, funky vibe and Toni brought it ALL! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night - young, old - it didn’t matter! The band played such an awesome mix of jams, people are still texting and calling asking about them! No one wanted to stop dancing and used dinner as a commercial break in between dance sets! We cannot wait for another excuse to party and have Project Orange make it epic! They are worth every cent and just hope I get invited to a party where they are performing soon!”

rowena and jeremy ★★★★★

“I just wanted to send a huge thank you to SoundNation for the tremendous performance they gave at our wedding reception. There was a perfect balance of dance music, slow songs, and music that was just right for quieter moments. The dance floor was packed throughout the evening and those dancing even included my mother, who is not normally very inclined to dance at all! I also wanted to let you know that we had multiple guests who came from abroad to celebrate with us, and one in particular (from Rome) dubbed SoundNation “the best band in the world!” We received no end of additional compliments on how wonderful SoundNation was and we know exactly who to recommend if we hear that anyone is looking for a world class band.”

“[The Big Beyond] were absolutely AMAZING!! So easy to work with, sounded great, flexible, very interactive and entertaining!”

andrea, president, extraordinary events ★★★★★

“A big thank you for your incredible performance for our President’s Club program this February in Hawaii. Not only were you flexible, accommodating, creative and professional in pre-production but also [Andy] and your band on-site gave us all and more than we asked for. From the small ensemble that accompanied our awards program to SoundConnection entertaining during the dance party, the quality of music was superb. And, using your ensemble in two ways makes for a very cost effective option. In addition, your in-ear monitors and creative flexibility allowed for us to reveal the band in interesting ways and gave us a great amount of artistic license. Thank you again for all of your help. We look forward to doing it again soon!”

“The Free was AMAZING!!! I can’t tell you how many people approached me asking who they were, and to tell me how incredible they were. Such an interactive band we couldn’t have asked for more to ring in the big day with us!”

sean, president, designs by sean, inc. ★★★★★

“SoundConnection is so much more than a band, more than just a group of people on stage making music. They bring the art of playing musical instruments to a whole new dimension. It becomes theater, and they are the actors. Through their performance they weave together stories and take the audience on a journey. They engage and interact with the audience in a way that I nave never witnessed from any other musical group. They do not let themselves or their performances become bound by the size of the stage or the length of their cables and wires. ”

martin p. dempsey, production director, crossmedia ★★★★★

“I wanted to personally thank you and the rest of SoundConnection for the tremendous performances your group gave at the Coca-Cola Olympic events. In my 14 years of producing corporate events, I strongly feel that SoundConnection gave the most dynamic, energetic and passionate performances I’ve ever experienced. The band raised the level of enthusiasm and enjoyment of the high-profile audience to new heights. I’d sum it up by saying your performers made the event.”

shanna s., the knot ★★★★★

“We had The Big Beyond at our Biltmore wedding in Asheville this May and they were INCREDIBLE. The band was super interactive, very dynamic and diverse. They played the classics as well as the newest Top 40 list. The band had my guests on the dance floor all night. They were definitely a pivotal vendor on my wedding night and my husband is already trying to convince me to book them for his 30th Birthday this year. HIGHLY recommend!”

Martha S., the knot ★★★★★

“Sound Nation put on an amazing reception for our wedding. Their talent, energy and understanding of the crowd was top notch. Everything was perfect! The Kushner Entertainment team was so organized and easy to work with. Their communication and comprehension of the style and vibe for the night was fully understood and implemented perfectly. Wish we could do it all again!”

“I can’t say enough about how amazing [Project Orange] was for our recent wedding. They seriously made the party. The band’s performance at the wedding literally left us speechless - there were moments when my husband and I stopped dancing just to turn and stare, we were completely dumbfounded by their range of voices and instrumentals. It was insane!”

katherine, wedding wire ★★★★★

“The entire experience from start to finish was amazing! Leading up to the event, the team worked with us to make sure they understood our vision, provided suggestions, and helped to craft a timeline that helped the event to flow. SoundNation was nothing short of amazing - the dance floor was packed the entire night and we have received MANY compliments on how great the band was!”

julie bitton, production manager, movie and a makeover TBS ★★★★★

“I’d like to say how pleased we were as a Show to work with Kushner Entertainment and SoundConnection. Andy and his wonderful group performed during our episode “THE WEDDING PLANNER” for Movie and a Makeover with TBS. They did an amazing job for the show, the wedding party was so thrilled to have them performing. The entire group was so professional and has such positive energy, I will use them again for another television opportunity.”

Erika litman, former publisher, modern luxury magazine ★★★★★

“…You don’t have to look much further than the uniquely talented professionals working in the local wedding industry to find some of the region’s most profoundly creative movers and shakers...Take Andy Kushner, for one. The founder of Kushner Entertainment - the iconic DC wedding entertainment company - recently launched his own podcast, The Wedding Biz, to chat with prominent wedding pros such as Sylvia Weinstock (aka the “Queen of Cakes”) and world-class wedding designer and planner David Beahm. The broadcasts are funny, honest and a must-listen for all local brides and grooms.”

Carol R. ★★★★★

“[Trio Caliente] were fantastic. Great talent, lots of fun, very accommodating and determined to make our small space work for them, and our guests thought they were great too!”

Michael, wedding wire ★★★★★

“We loved working with Kushner Entertainment and Rhythm6! From my first call with Natalie to scouting out Rhythm6 during a rehearsal to dancing the ENTIRE night away during our wedding, we were in the best of hands throughout the process. During our first call, Natalie took 30 minutes to learn more about mine & my husband's relationship to determine which band she thought reflected our personalities. She also met us a few weeks before the wedding to discuss our vision for the party and provided recommendations, which were greatly appreciated. Emails and phone calls were always returned within 24 hours by the KE team. And lastly, we LOVED the band's song choices, skills, and overall energy! Our guests also loved the band as much as we did! We thoroughly enjoyed working with the entire Kushner Entertainment team and wish we could party with the band every weekend!!”

kristin, wedding wire ★★★★★

“We were BLOWN AWAY with SoundNation, one of Kushner Entertainment's bands. We could not have imagined a livelier group of talented musicians and vocalists. They were so easy to work with leading up to our wedding, and they did an amazing job learning and performing our first dance song. Days and weeks after our wedding we received compliments from our guests - young and old - about how wonderful the band was. Everyone was up and dancing all night, and SoundNation truly made our wedding unforgettable!”
