"You guys are incredible. Emily and I had our reception at the Clay Center a few weeks ago and the band was the absolute highlight of the night. Emily and I went into the planning with 3 imperatives: Great Wedding Band, Great Food, Great Photographer. In that order of importance. All that to say, we had high hopes and expectations for a wedding band. Well, Santa Cruz far exceeded every expectation we had. Judy and Little Thomas were a blast. Several of my friends and relatives made specific comments about the quality of the band. The vocalists were outstanding and the musicians were equally impressive."
-- Bill Johnson, Mid-Atlantic Technology Research and Innovation Center, Inc., Charleston, WV 

"For three consecutive years, the Santa Cruz Band has provided the musical entertainment for our company's annual benefit. They are professional, talented and very accommodating. Santa Cruz is very popular in this area, with good reason. People love their music. I would recommend this band for any occasion."
-- Linda Williams, Prestera Foundation, Huntington, WV 

"Santa Cruz playing at our reception made it "the absolute best wedding reception ever" according to dozens of our guests! We have been so used to going to receptions with DJ's but they don't even compare to the energy, excitement, and liveliness that a live band provides. And Santa Cruz's musicians are top-quality! As soon as the wedding ceremony was over, Santa Cruz provided the dinner music while the guests were eating. One guest came up to us and said, "they are playing really good songs that I want to dance to right now!" Even though she, along with many other guests, were itching to start dancing, they patiently waited until the Bride and Groom could have our first dance! The floor stayed packed with guests of all ages the entire time.... and it was extra special when one of the lead singers came out onto the dance floor with us! It was worth every penny to book Santa Cruz for our wedding reception....not only did we thoroughly enjoy ourselves, but our guests had an incredible time, and are still talking about it!"
-- Isaiah & Rachel Haynie, Wedding Reception at Marshall University, Huntington, WV

"Santa Cruz Band was a terrific addition to our Jackson General Hospital Gala this year! The voices were amazing, the crowd interaction was loads of fun, the attire and demeanor were very professional, and the talent was impressive. We would definitely recommend this band for any occasion. They were a blast!"
-- Rhonda Davis, Event Coordinator, Jackson General Hospital, Ripley, WV

"Hey guys, we had an absolute blast! Thank you so much for sending the pics! Everyone loved the band! Thanks again for making the trip and for making our day that much more special."
-- Laura Graf, WCHS TV8 & FOX11, Huntington, WV

"Everyone loved the band! They did a great job!"
-- Kyle Sowards, Marshall University, Huntington, WV

"Santa Cruz is simply the cream of the crop when it comes to musical acts in West Virginia and surrounding states. We were lucky to have Santa Cruz play at our wedding in 2005 and have tried not to miss one of their shows locally since. Santa Cruz Band is worth every penny and they keep the party going from beginning to end. We would highly recommend them for any memorable event and we couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding, and they were a big part of that. Don't hesitate to put your faith in Santa Cruz."
-- Aaron and Courtney Arnold, Huntington, WV

"We thoroughly enjoyed your band at the Bayer Holiday Party and everyone who attended just raves about the music and the band members' voices! Thank you and your band for a wonderful time. Your band made our party!"
-- Dee Hays, South Charleston Technical Center

"You and the band did a phenomenal job at our party. We have never had that many people on the dance floor after 11 p.m.! Everyone in the band has such a great voice. I sure wish that I could sing...A BIG THANK YOU for making our party a great success! I'll speak to my manger when he returns from vacation the first of the year about the party and music for 2007. I'll be in touch."
-- Susan A. Caldwell, Bayer Material Science

"My phone has been ringing off the hook this morning. I have had at least 4 calls from people (I don't know how some of them could have gotten my work number) bragging on the job the band did New Year's Eve! I thought you all did a fantastic job, but I figured I would be a little prejudiced, but it appears others share the same opinion. Great Job!"
-- Gregory A. Nichols CPA, DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprises

"Thanks so much! We absolutely loved all that you added to our reception. It was a wonderful time, and a true celebration. I continuously hear great comments on your performance. Thanks again!"
-- Brian & Sunny

"Wow – I heard you all at the MU Homecoming event at Pullman Square last fall and you were great! I'm looking forward to you all playing for the Summer Sounds event in Huntington!"
