Sorry we didn't get a chance to talk to you a little more at the wedding but we just wanted to send you a note to say you guys were unbelievable!!!
Thanks so much for learning some of those songs we had requested - we really appreciate it. We had a wonderful night and thanks to you the whole crowd was on the dance floor start to finish! We have received so many compliments and accolades on the band saying how "awesome" you were.
Thanks again,
Meg and Jeremy

Just can't thank you enough for making lifetime memories for my daughter her husband and the families. You guys out did yourselves!! Everyone is texting all day Best wedding ever!! 10 out of 10!! That band is amazing!!Favorite moments:Watching Lauren and Brian dance to their favorite song lol they are the best. Also you standing on the railing singing the song shout!! And so much more! You made a lifetime of memories for my daughter just like your dad did for my husband and I. Thank so very much!!!!

 -- Many thanks for the beautiful music you all provided for our wedding last weekend in Philadelphia. You guys are the best!!! and the room full of happy dancers can attest to that. Your selections from the ceremony, through the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing were exactly what everyone wanted and we thank you for it. Several people asked about your band -- guests and hotel management so your reputation is spreading far and wide!! We appreciate your willingness to travel the distance -- you make us look good!
Stan and I have no more daughters but I hope I get invited to some wedding somewhere that you will be playing at. You probably need no references; but if you ever do, please do not hesitate to let us know. We would lay it on thick!!

Thanks so much.

Just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you for rocking our wedding reception last Saturday! Our first dance & parent dances were perfect... And to start off open dancing with "September" was beyond awesome. You've gained another 200 fans for sure. Thanks again for everything,Katie & Tim Batty

Hi Paul and the Primetime musicians,
Your band made my daughter's wedding reception! Guests were asking all evening where we found you. Of course we found you at Lauren Wilson's ( the matron of honor )wedding in Vermont. We were pleasantly surprised that you were from Syracuse.The music you play is perfect for dancing and great for all ages. My young 20's cousin's as well as my 81 year old mother danced all evening.
Thanks again,
Julie DuFlo

Hey Paul! You guys were amazing and all of our guests were blown away too by your music. Our families who don't normally dance were even on the dance floor that night! Absolutely nothing but amazing things to say. Really can't thank you enough! See you at the Retreat! Chris & Chelsea

Dear Paul and the rest of Prime Time Horns,
We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding a night to rmember!  Even months later, all of our family and friends continue to rave about how asesome the music was!  Even though our big day is over, don't think you are going to get rid of our "crew" that easily!  We will forever be "groupies" and can't wait to see you sometime soon on a local dance floor!  Thank you for all of your hard work and help!  You guys are THE BEST!
Kyle and Beth Pritchard

Thanks to you and all of Prime Time for making our wedding reception!  You had EVERYONE on the dance floor!  You do a great job feeling the crowd and keeping everyone dancing!  Thanks!  WE LOVE PRIME TIME!
Shannon and Dan Kane

Dear Paul and the Prime Time Band,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on April 5th!  You did a wonderful job and of course we love your band.  I heard nothing but great comments about the band and music.  Thank you again,
Love, Lisa and Ed

Thanks again for performing at our wedding.  Everyone loved the band and had a blast dancing!
Love, Karen and Mike  10-4-14

Dear Prime Time Horns,
Thank you so much for such an incredible reception!  Your rendition of our song was BEAUTIFUL (truly) and perfect.  You got everyone dancing, you stayed extra for us-everyone LOVED you guys-you are amazing musicians.  You made our reception a party to remember!
Thank you!  Love Marie and Bill Lakie

To Paul and the Members of PTH,Our sincere thanks for making our daughter's wedding reception on Sept. 7 at Midvale CC in Rochester, NY an absolutely fantastic celebration! Expectations were high going in and the group far exceeded all we could have hoped for. The party mood was set from the first song and continued through to the last, without an open spot on the dance floor seemingly the entire night. Your handling of the ceremonial dances and presentations was also done with appropriate class and sentiment. We received text messages and comments throughout the night about how great the band was and how the reception was the best that our guests had ever attended. The accolades continue to come in. We will be PTH fans from here on out! Thanks again for all you did to make this a most memorable occasion. Sincerely,Dan and JoAnn Kuhman

Dear Paul and Prime Time,The two most important elements of a great time are the people and THE BAND! Lindsey and John changed the date of their wedding to make sure that you would be their band. I told them, "no one remembers the date, but they will remember the party!". Thank you for creating such a fun environment and making their wedding the "best wedding reception EVER!" ( a quote from multiple guests!)My husband and I danced every dance and enjoyed our daughter's day as much as she did. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now all we have to do is create an occasion where you can play again : )Carolyn Ahern

Hi Paul-
Just wanted to thank you for putting on such a great show at our wedding on Saturday. The night would not have been the same without Primetime there. I had so many guest tell me how wonderful the music was. Thanks again for all of your hardwork!
Luciana and Wade 6/22/13 Shenendoah @ Turning Stone

Paul - Thanks so much for the fantastic music at the wedding. Everyone commented they haven't had that much fun at a wedding. The dance floor was always filled with dancers, you kept everyone out there with your great variety of music. Thanks again,
Kevin Kutas 9/29/2012

Just catching my breath after a joyous wedding on Saturday. Of course, Prime Time was wonderful again and our families and friends had a terrific time on the dance floor. I am pretty sure the military guys did too J
As I told you Saturday night, it was a true pleasure to work with you again, as it allowed me, going into wedding #2, to have great confidence that the music would be tremendous.
If you need any references, and I am sure you do not, don't hesitate to contact the Fletchers.
Although Jim and I are at the end of the wedding - hosting cycle in our lives, as you could probably tell, there are many more first cousins who will need a band over the next few years. I am sure you will be hearing from some of them in the future.
Best wishes…and see you at the Retreat!

We just got back from Europe last week, so sorry that this thank you is so delayed!! THANK YOU for making our wedding such a BLAST! We have had tons of our guests comment on how fabulous you guys were. No one had ever seen a dance floor fill up so quickly! Our wedding definitely wouldn't have been the same without you. I hope you guys had fun because we know that we did! Once again, I cannot thank you enough for everything! We will definitely spread the word to others about what a great job your band does (and in fact, we've already told one couple who's looking for next summer...) Anyways, thanks again - - we look forward to coming out to see you play sometime soon!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Stephanie & Conor Murphy :)

Hi Paul,
We just got back from our honeymoon and I had been meaning to email you to say thank you to you and the band for such a wonderful time at our wedding reception.
Our parents heard so many positive compliments about the music at our reception- you guys truly made it special!
Thanks so much for your efforts the day of, and for all the back and forth prior to the wedding. My parents mentioned the other night they are going to have to follow you guys around local venues this summer to hear some tunes and reminisce about the reception.
Thanks again,

Dear Paul and Prime Time Horns,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding!!! All we have heard since the wedding has been "Who was your band? They were AWESOME!" Everything w as absolutely perfect and you definitely kept everyone on the dance floor all night long!
We really can't say enough about what a great job you did with both the music and also the MC duties. Also, we truly appreciated you learning a new song for our first dance in such a short period of time. We really couldn't be happier with everything and we thank you so much for making our big day so memorable.
~Katie and Tim (11/26/11 wedding)

You guys were SO good last Friday. Dan and I, our parents, extended family, friends and wedding party are all still recovering from theparty you threw. Thanks for making it so much fun!We will forever sing your praises to our single friends now thatthere's no more LaFexes to get married. A sincere thanks for makingeach of our weddings a blast.Be well.Anne LaFex

Paul and Prime Time,Words cannot truly express how grateful and appreciative Kyle and I are to you guys for playing at our wedding in Binghamton on August 6th. You all made the night undeniably memorable not only for the both of us but for all who were in attendance that night. There are too many "who was that band, my god they were phenomenal" to count or mention. Paul asked me at the bar "are you ready to blow the roof of this place during dinner" and did you ever!! From "10th Avenue Freezeout" to "Shout" you all had everyone dancing and having the time of their lives. We owe a big cheers to you for playing our 1st dance song "hold on" to perfection and would not have had it any other way!! You truly have earned the reputation of CNY's premier band...With many thanks and support,Nick and Kyle Lynn Tucci

Hi Paul,
Wow! You guys (and girl) were awesome! Marielle and I had a blast and every person we've talked to said you were the best band they have ever heard at a wedding. My Mom and Dad loved the Aerosmith song and Marielle said that was the first time she had ever seen her Father dance! Thank you guys so very much!
And also a special thank you for being so poised and professional.
Thanks again for everything Paul, and we'll be seeing you guys at future shows!

Hi Paul! Thank you for everything you and your band did to make our wedding such a fun and memorable night! Andyand I just got back from our honeymoon and we have been looking through pictures and talking to friends and family. Everyone keeps saying it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding, we know that is a direct compliment to you guys! Thank you for helping make our wedding such a special night!! Kelly and Andy6/18/11

Hi Paul,
I wanted to send you a quick THANK YOU! for making our wedding day that much more spectacular. Everyone absolutely loved the band and I think you and the band could tell from all the dancing. A day has not yet passed when someone has approached me to say "the wedding was beautiful and the band was amazing!" We absolutely enjoyed ourselves to the fullest and you and the band are to thank for that! Thank you again for everything!!

We just got back from our honeymoon in Aruba and I wanted to send you a quick note (with a formal one to follow) to say thank you for playing at our wedding. Your band was absolutely phenomenal! As you could see from the wedding, we are a big dancing family and we wanted to have a great band to help us party, and you guys did not disappoint in the least bit!! So many people told us how great you guys were and how much they enjoyed the band, so we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so memorable and such a great time for everyone! If we can convince my sister to get married in NY you will certainly be getting a call from my father because he especially was more than pleased with how well you guys did.
We frequent upstate NY quite a bit so we will be sure to check your schedule and come see you guys play.
Thank you again!

Dear Prime Time,
Before school begins again, I would like to take the time to thank your amazing band for your contribution to a very special wedding day for Emily and Greg. As you know, we booked you without the bride and groom ever hearing you, based on our experiences hearing Prime Time at a few weddings. Emily and Greg were totally amazed and delighted by the whole night. We really appreciated you learning "My Wish" in time for the weddding, that was extremely special. Every song was great and the nearly continuous play kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Even the sworn "non dancers" got up and danced! The entire Long Island contingency was totally amazed by the vocals, the horn section and the great sound......the most interesting comment I heard about Prime Time that I thought you might like to hear was that "it wasn't about the band, it was about Emily and Greg" and that was totally true. So thanks again for letting Steve and I and all our friends be your backup singers the entire night.
Keep playing and we will be in touch when our younger daughter decides to get married.
The coolest father of the bride and his wife Steve and Jean Lemanczyk

Thank you so much for helping to make Brooke and Andrew's wedding the special day that they have always dreamed about. You and your band were fantastic! You did a great job as the master of ceremony, and the band played all the right songs to keep everyone on that dance floor the whole night. Everyone also enjoyed the keyboard music during the cocktail hour. I told you that an open bar and a good band make for a fun reception, and you certainly proved my point. So many people came up and commented on how great you were. You don't need to worry about us recommending you because your name will be the first one we give out. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference because we will certainly rave about your performance.
Again, many thanks for providing our guests with a night of wonderful entertainment. It was so nice to see everyone having so much fun.
Lynne Hanly

Hello Primetime!
Elizabeth Strodel here. I wanted to write and say thank you for letting me sit in with the band. I had a great time and really appreciated it. You guys sounded great! Everyone had a great time...shout was awesome!. Please thank Lenny especially for letting me play his amazing drums, they were probably the nicest I have ever played. Good luck with all the date's this summer. Come check out The Delinquents sometime.
Thanks again,
Elizabeth Strodel

As a planner and guest at the D'Amico/DeFio wedding you were the bright spot in an unfortunate dark night! After the electricity went out at Belhurst Castle we needed something to get us moving. A bit apprehensive your musicians got everyone singing, dancing, but more importantly smiling. I have to say that this wedding was the most fun I have had in a long time and you helped make it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your musical talent but most of all your endurance on a very STEAMY night! you all should be commended! You are a class act!
Maria Scarfino
(Just a note about this wedding.  The power went out at 8:00 due to a thunderstorm and Prime Time played without power on the dance floor until midnight.) 

Hi Paulie amd Prime Time!!!!!
I wanted to Thank you for the outstanding job you did at our wedding!!!!! Your sister has a beautiful voice!  We will be seeing you when were in syracuse. We will come hear you guys somewhere. Thank so much for making our wedding over the top. Lucia

Paul and Prime Time,
I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for the amazing job you guys did at our wedding. People are still to this day talking about the band. People who previously would have never considered bands for a wedding are now thinking about it! Everyone we have talked to said that it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. Absolutely everyone had a blast. I knew that Primetime would be good, but you guys went above and beyond all expectations. Thanks for making it such a memorable event. Mike Shepherd

Dear Paul and Prime Time,
We wanted to thank you for all of your efforts that made our wedding truly special. We had the time of our lives and our guests enjoyed the entertainment immensely. Its just a shame that everyone's feet were so sore from all the time on the dance floor! Thanks again and we look forward to hearing you again the next time we visit Central New York.Best Regards,
Carolyn and Andy Weinberg

Prime Time,
What can I say? Thank you so much for making our wedding so fun! You truly are extraordinary entertainers. Everyone had a great time, including us and especially the mother of the bride!
Thanks Again!
