This band made the wedding a success. Everyone of all ages was pleased with the music. They play it all and very well. Moreover the price was reasonable and the business was very professional. Prompt call back, good communication, very responsive to change. On time,... Read More cooperated with venue and the whole process was seamless. I would have another wedding just to hear them play again.

CK Entertainment is a class act. They had everything set up before hand and wore professional attire. We hired CK Entertainment to perform for our wedding on March 12, 2016. They were everything we hoped for and more. Our favorite thing about CK Entertainment is that they feel... Read More out your guests and play music that they know your guests will enjoy. Our guests were dancing all night and having a great time. It has been over two weeks since our wedding, my husband and I are still getting phone calls about how awesome our wedding was. This was all because of CK Entertainment. CK Entertainment is reasonable as well. They are not over priced like most bands. If you want your wedding to be a success, I would hire CK Entertainment in a heartbeat. Carey was wonderful to work with and was very prompt with emails. Thanks again CK Entertainment for making our wedding day so enjoyable.

My thoughts...

Reviewed on 11/12/2015 Charlie K

I wasn’t going to write this review as I was always taught if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all. And then I thought of another bride excitedly looking for a band and coming across this one (as I did) with only good reviews, booking them, and then... Read More having the same poor experience that I did. I watched the videos and checked everything everyone had to say about them, and although the videos looked out of date – they were listed as a “featured” vendor on The Knot’s website so I put my trust in that along with the good reviews. I spoke with the manager on the phone – Carey and he was super helpful when I was asking for a quote and for more info. He added more value by telling me that he would play more instruments himself for free – which I thought was really nice of him. As soon as I paid the deposit everything changed. He was no longer helpful, he appeared abrupt and his emails came across borderline rude. I had a planner so she took over thankfully and all I had to do was complete a Bridal info sheet with names, roles, song and genre choices etc. I completed it with our choices and it’s sad to say but they didn’t play even one of the listed songs – not one! I never really noticed on the day, however afterwards I realised that we may as well not have bothered sending it. If they had any issues with the songs or queries I would have expected them to ask for clarification or more info – both of which they didn’t do. When our first dance song came for some reason on they only played it in the instrumental version – despite the fact that they had two singers. As weird as that was we made it special by everyone else singing the words. I had no issues with the strings that were played during the ceremony or the piano that was played during the cocktail reception. My issue was during the party. There was no atmosphere, they didn’t play much to get the guests dancing and the female vocalist’s voice was poor. It wasn’t strong at all and she was hard to hear with the live band playing. I felt the band played well, however I found out after the day that they complained about the food and went to the bar and got free alcoholic drinks on more than one occasion. They had way too many breaks, and at one point when I think they’d been gone about 40 minutes the best men and the planners assistant all spoke to them separately about the music and coming back. They played until not one minute past 11 and when my brother asked for a last song they wouldn’t allow it. The planner also informed me that they demanded another $150 on top for something the day after the wedding, which we refused to pay, sent an email response similar to this and never heard anything back. Such a shame that we spent so much and it was poor, however we didn’t allow it to ruin our day as thankfully we had a party bus and a 45 minute journey back to make up for the lack of the partying. I wouldn’t recommend them based on my experience.

I am sorry that this client was not happy. Had she and her planner provided us with a tent for cover on an outside event with a 30% chance of Rain none of this would have occurred and was a contractual agreement which they choose... Read Less Read More
