"We were so fortunate to have found Ray Colao and his band for our wedding. Under an unfortunate circumstance, we had a last minute cancellation by a wedding entertainer we had previously booked and with only about a month until our wedding weekend we found Ray. He just so happened to have an availability for our wedding weekend and with short notice we booked him and his band, immediately knowing how lucky we were to find them.
In hindsight, our last minute change in plans was an absolute blessing in disguise because the performance that Ray and his band put on during our Latin wedding night celebration was unbelievable!! Ray and his band brought the party to life with their energy and spirited performance! He did more than just provide excellent, energetic music, he got the crowd involved and took our celebration to another level. He even brought professional dancers that showcased some incredible salsa moves which was very entertaining to us and our guests! We received so many compliments from our guests that they loved the music and performance during this night of our wedding. Ray is a terrific performer! We couldn’t have been happier with the way the night went and we owe so much of this to Ray and his band! It was exactly what we wanted and more! Thank you so much for being a part of our special weekend, we will always remember you fondly!

"Absolute perfection! Ray and his band were so very professional, beginning with the preview he provided in his home, to the last song played at our daughter's wedding. The acoustic guitarist was perfect for the ceremony, and the trio during cocktail hour equally so. Ray's sofisticated style led the way all evening. He works the entire venue, making it so much fun to get guests on their feet. His voice is amazing! The band members are also top notch! Our guests are still raving about how much they loved the music :) THANK YOU, RAY...you made Loren and Tyler's wedding a beautiful success!"
