If I could give Malloi more than 5 stars, I would! Everything about this band was perfect, from the initial contact to the actual performance and everything in between. We had two appointments with the two lead singers, Gaston and Kelley, to go over details and what we wanted... Read More to have played. They were very flexible and were even willing to learn any music we wanted to hear that they didn't know how to play (which ended up being nothing since they have such a wide range of talent). I was a pain in the neck with the announcements at the reception--I made a playlist (the band could have performed the songs live, but it would have been tricky with the specifications I was asking for) with certain songs to be played at specific moments within the song, which I didn't think they'd be able to do. Poor Kelley spent hours working on this list, because she wanted it to be exactly the way I wanted it to be, and it was! It was flawless! They played live during dinner, and for the rest of the night, were able to read the crowd to keep the momentum going. Everyone at our wedding still talks about how amazing the band was, so I thought I should pass this information along to future brides/grooms. If you are considering hiring a band, you are missing out if you do not book Malloi! You definitely will not be disappointed, and they will exceed your expectations.

Malloi has played an important role in the Owner/President Management Program (OPM) at Harvard Business School graduation celebrations for over 10 years. The band is amazing and their performance is always the highlight of the night. Each and every year, they manage to get... Read More over 150 people on the dance floor with music that is perfect for the audience. From the moment they step on stage until the last note is played, guests are treated to a wide range of music selections that keep the energy high and the atmosphere welcoming. Gaston and the other members of Malloi are extremely professional and proactive, which is very helpful when coordinating large events. We can’t wait to see them again in August!

Our son and daughter-in-law had a destination wedding, which meant that many of our family and friends from Rhode Island were not able to attend. We wanted to have a celebration in Rhode Island to honor the newlywed couple and to celebrate this wonderful occasion with those who... Read More could not attend the wedding. Our son and his wife decided they would like to have a relaxed, Hawaiian luau-type celebration. We spoke to Gaston and advised him of what they wanted. The rest is history and wonderful memories. From the moment the FANTASTIC band MALLOI started playing, to the moment they ended, against the screams and shouts of our guests on the dance floor to keep playing, it was an afternoon of non-stop fun, fun, fun. MALLOI dressed for the occasion in matching Hawaiian shirts and had Hawaiian props for the guests. They played music that fit the occasion and kept all the guests engaged. From the moment they started playing until they ended, the dance floor was packed. Gaston is a consummate professional. Not only did the band MALLOI provide great music and entertainment, but Gaston also emceed the entire event to perfection. Gaston is a showman who knows how to work the crowd. The band members work great together, and as such, they are the glue that brings your event together for an absolute, wonderful time. Way to go MALLOI!!! We have recommended you to many and will continue to do so. You are the best!!! Bill and Alice

If you are looking to have all generations of your family & friends on the dance floor, you will want to hire MALLOI for your wedding! My husband & I are both musicians and from a musical family-- our standards are high. MALLOI exceeded all of our expectations and even had the... Read More groom dancing (something he does not voluntarily do). Gaston is such a showman and warmly connects to guests and will work with you to carefully craft the event of your dreams. We did not have a wedding planner and were psyched that once we arrived at our reception, MALLOI took over. They know exactly what to do to put you at ease-- as far as announcements and running the show go. Highly highly recommend MALLOI without hesitation!

We were fortunate enough to welcome Malloi for our first signature event - Spring for Strings for Community String Project at Linden Place in Bristol, RI - May 2015. The event sold out and the guests danced all night long to the wonderful band MALLOI. Gaston and the band are... Read More true professionals and the music was amazing! They performed contemporary music as well as era inspired music. It was a great mix for our event. They went out of their way to make sure we had the music we wanted. We can't wait to have them back for our next event.

We hired Malloi to play at my son's wedding a week ago and they were absolutely phenomenal!!! They arrived approximately 2 ½ hours before the ceremony, professionally dressed and fully prepared, even to the extent of bringing extra equipment in anticipation of any glitches that... Read More may arise with any aspect of the wedding. They have the special ability to appeal to people of all ages. All of our guests absolutely LOVED them, whether they were in their twenties or fifties, and once everyone got on the dance floor, they never left – and the band kept playing!! IT WAS A BLAST!! Gaston Malloy is wonderfully charismatic and engaging, Kelley and the other members of the band couldn't have been nicer. They certainly went above & beyond! If you've never seen the band Malloi, you absolutely MUST! Malloi, can't thank you enough for making my son's special day an incredibly memorable one!!! It was our pleasure to have you be a part of this wonderful celebration!

After checking out a bunch of bands, we picked Malloi and couldn't have been happier with our decision. They were so easy to work with and really flexible with our needs/requests. They played everything from current hits to classics and even some fun surprises. Our wedding... Read More was a real party and once they started playing during dinner our guests got up and didn't sit down until the end. We even asked them to stay longer to keep the party going.
