“This past Friday's wedding had an incredible singer... Peter Oprisko!
Peter and his band were extremely good. While it's so common these days to hear music from DJ's, I'm always glad when a wedding I'm photographing has a band. And these guys are not just any average band either... Peter's band was "tight"! I couldn't help but think, "Wow! These guys are Incredibly good! While some singers are content in just staying near the stage and performing, Peter was found wandering over at the tables singing to the guests! I'd have to say, you can't do that unless you are really good! Interestingly enough, there were several accomplished musicians among the guests as well. For instance, the father of the groom happened to be a world-class guitar luthier (builder of guitars) and the groom is studying to be a maker of violins! And, one of the world's best harmonica players(Howard Levy) were among the guests as well! Playing music for these guys, you'd better be good! Peter and his band did not disappoint one bit!
If you are looking for some great music for your wedding, consider Peter Oprisko!”

“We are veteran professional musicians of more than 20 years(bass and piano). We have a FULL Studio built in our home. We have toured and worked with musicians from all over the US and Europe, some very well known. There were at LEAST a dozen or so musicians in the crowd at our wedding who have also been signed. Everything from fusion drummers to heavy metal guitarists who have and still are touring the US & Europe and recording on various projects at any given time.
We did NOT pick your name out of a hat! We did weeks of research. Listened online to 100's of samples of various bands & performers, spoke with and met dozens of performers and ultimately came out to watch YOU perform live before making a decision! In our opinion, you sir, are the best in the business! Your vocal work & style are outstanding! Your band was equally impressive! You did a GREAT job! Your stage presence & audience interaction were GREAT! Everyone absolutely LOVED your performance!!!! We all had an amazing time. WE think you are GREAT! You are a consummate professional. Thank You!”
