Here are a few of the rave reviews we receive regularly!
Below is the review we received after playing Cynde’s 2nd daughter’s wedding (Jeryn):
FABULOUS! Everyone raved about the BAND! All of the guests wanted to know where I found you! They couldn’t believe that you were a band playing the songs, because they felt that you sounded just liked the original artists! I felt that you sounded better than the original artists! LOL
You helped make the evening – the kids felt that this was the best Wedding that they have ever been to – even if it was theirs!
Hi Chris [and CEE Band],
[Kick Ass] That’s what everyone was telling me at the wedding. “That is an amazing kickass band!”. So true! City Express was wonderful and my husband admired your Chick Corea salute. What a hopping, fun wedding. Music set the tone! I was totally surprised by my daughter singing some of her vows; their first dance, including air guitar, was a hoot; then [the groom] joining the band for Smooth… priceless. You read the crowd correctly. To say they loved dancing to your music is an understatement! And my Boston homies loved Dirty Water! And the drum licks, yeah! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This was the feedback we received after playing Cynde’s 1st daughter’s wedding (Rissa):
“Chris, Tony and the crew from City Express Entertainment played at my daughter’s wedding this past weekend – and they were FABULOUS!!! Everyone was up dancing the entire evening and no-one sat down! I have gotten so many e-mails and phone calls raving about the band! Chris played for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Bobby and Gina sang, and Chris, Keith, Artie, Steve, Tony and Ivo played for the reception. I cannot imagine another group that could have been better! Thanks to the band for Saturday night! oxoxox” – Cynde
To the wonderful Tony T Entertainment – As always New Year Eve was great thanks to you, your band & DJ combination. We have been going to the Ethan Allen Hotel for the past 4 years only because of you & your crew. After you did my daughters wedding back in 2011 we have become hooked on your band & will continue to follow you around. Thank you once again & will check our your schedule to find out where you are performing.
All the best; Ronald & Arlene Bastone
Hey Tony T, you made our Christmas Party Fantastic! Between your amazing band & DJ music you really kept us on the dance floor & it was so awesome that we were able to make requests on the spot. You guys are great. Can’t wait to see you perform at Madelyn’s wedding in August of 2016. I highly recommend you guys & will continue to pass out the word.
Thank you for everything; Everyone at Family Dental Associates.
Hello Tony & Thank you for performing at our Italian American Family Dinner Dance at the Marina Del Ray Catering. You & your professional touring band were a smash hit.. Your vocalists are fantastic & the musicians were amazing, plus Ronnie your DJ was right on & very entertaining! As you know we had 350 guests & you kept them on the dance floor. The top 40 music sounded like the original artists & the music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s was a true experience. You & your crew perform so well together & you can see the electricity that you all have on stage. You played all our requests & made the event a total success. Thank you all & see you next year.

To Tony, Lucy, Chris & Band; OMG you guys did a great job. My family & friends are still talking about the band. Having the DJ was a nice touch but the Band really made things happen. When Lucy, Trudy, Bobby & Paul started dancing & singing on the dance floor, well that made the entertainment go to a higher level, plus the Sinatra Show was the icing in the cake. Thank you & will see you guys soon at future gigs. Renee & Sandy – Oct. 18, 2015

Hi Tony, Just want to tell you that you made my daughters wedding complete on August 30, 2015 at the Falkirk Estate Country Club. You did everything you said. The music was not to loud, but loud enough to keep everyone dancing. We all had a great time. Thank you for everything, Loreli King

Hey Tony T, Chris & Band, You guys did a great job for my wedding client at the Inn @ Saybrook on May 23, 2015. Everyone raved about the band. As you know this client wanted some classic rock, & when you guys did the Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ELP & Foreigner stuff they could not believe it. They thought they were at a concert. I know form working with you for the past 10 years that you can play anything & your musicians are pro’s but this was amazing. I am so glad to have you & your band working with me together performing at weddings. There is nothing we can not do.
Thank you & see you at the next gig.
Jimmy Nuzzo, Dance to the Music Entertainment………..
Hi Tony & Band, we had such a wonderful time at our black tie dinner dance & it was all because of you. We originally thought that having background music would be the way to go, but we are so glad that you took control of the evening when no one was dancing & started to play top 40 music. Everyone was dancing & we all had a great time. Lucy, Trudy, Paul & Bobby are amazing singers & the rest of you are just like you said professional musicians. Thank you so much & we are contracting you again for next year.
Best to everyone: The Tanya Culver Event March 21, 2015
To Tony, Lucy & Chris; Thank you so much for entertaining us on March 11, 2015. I am so glad that we booked you for our event. We spoke with so many bands but when we came to see you perform at the Doral Arrowwood Hotel it was a done deal. Your band was great & you kept my clients on the dance floor, which from past events I though would be impossible! From now on we will be booking you for all our special events. Thank you for making the evening a success.. Kristin Lopez – Planning Contractor

Hi Tony, Thank you for making all our dreams come true on my wedding day April 18th 2015. My family enjoyed your music including the 1940’s, Motown & Disco era, plus my friends were amazed on how you played today’s music like Uptown Funk, Party Rock, Adele, Arainna Grande & the Jalo Pitbull stuff kept all my friends dancing. You & your band are true professionals. All our Best & hope to see you at future events when you perform; Lisa Davis
To Tony T & Band,
Thank you and your band so much. You were the best. Everyone raved about how great the music was, and the special treat of Frank Sinatra. They were still talking about it on Sunday at the brunch.
Thank you Tony T for everything!

Thank you; Philip Stern
Dear Tony T, We had such a great time at the Amber Room Colonnade 2 weeks ago on September 16th. Your band was great and the Sinatra Tribute show was fantastic. When we saw the ad for the show in the paper, Cathy & I said this sounds like a good night out, but it was a great night out. Your band entertainered everyone and the dancing did not stop. Thank you for a wonderful evening. God Bless you for your talent. Frank and Cathy
Thank you for a wonderful night of music; Tom & Catherine
With deep appreciation, Cheryl and Ken Brady
Take care, and hopefully see you all again at a gig when we’re back in town…
Just wanted to send you a note to let you know that we had a great time
A special thank you to the Doral & Tony T’s band of fantastic musicians for making my parent 45th anniversary a special night. Everyone was able to enjoy the buffet & the Tony T band played my parents favorite tunes. My parents had a great night thanks to Tony T & his fine musicians. We will be back for more Saturday nights!
Tony T & his band can do it all & we loved the Motown, Jersey Boys, & Dion set. You guy are the best & we will be back more often.
Listening to Tony T & his band was a treat, the vocalists were as smooth as silk, and the lead guitarist was great. Tony T on drums was very entertaining with twirling drum sticks. When Lucy sang At Last everyone stopped to listen plus the male vocalist’s were awesome.
