- "The grand performance of your 10 piece band was a key highlight of our April wedding reception and celebration and a home run!  Your performance stands as proof that a "live band" atmosphere is the best way to engage the guests and keep them talking about the event weeks later. 
     Your individual attention and inputs from the planning stage to a great performance by a group of professionals was well organized at every step.  The music appealed to our diverse audience from youth to senior as was evidenced by the crowded dance floor for much of the evening.  A special thanks especially for researching and performing our special song requests and playing for Ana's solo performance.  Perfect in every aspect and a job well done!  You raised the bar on wedding reception performances in the Central Valley. 
     On again, thank you for helping us to create a great experience with lasting memories for everyone.  You are a real professional and most accommodating to our needs.  Please feel free to share our name and event to those wishing to plan their perfect wedding celebration."
Highest Regards,
Jeff and Ana


 -  "The family of Mike Murphy and the employees of Murphy Bank would like to thank you for the quality and professionalism of your performance at Mr. Murphy’s 90th birthday celebration last Saturday."
-  "Your arrival and set up was timely, the musicianship excellent, and the tunes varied to appeal to the wide demographic of those in attendance.  Those of us who helped organize the party very much appreciated the flexible nature you exhibited when various people needed to use your sound system to make announcements and later with the bands accompaniment lead the attendees in singing “Happy Birthday” to the guest of honor. Both you and your band members were cooperative and courteous in every way and the live music the band provided was instrumental in making our event a memorable occasion." 
-  "Believe us when we say, that should the opportunity arise, we would not hesitate to recommend you and the band to anyone who was contemplating holding a similar event."
Warmest Regards,
Paul W. Heath
-  "Just wanted to let you know how pleased and excited we are about your performance at our daughter’s wedding last October. We are still hearing from the guests about how great the music was.  Our family tradition of a garden wedding at home was the perfect fit with your band. The music selection was terrific so all generations had a great time on the dance floor. Your jazz ensemble was perfect for the cocktail reception. Even our neighbors stayed up to listen and enjoy.  The quality of the musicians and vocals was exceptional. All members of the band were gracious and very helpful in making our special evening a great success. You really helped give us the ambiance we wanted and the guests let us know over and over again how much they enjoyed the music. Thanks again for the professionalism and care you took in making our daughter's wedding a great time for us and our guests."
Best Regards,
The Garza's


 -  "One turns sixty only once, and we could not have had a better band to celebrate the occasion. The music the band produces and the energy and personality of its members provided a level of entertainment that none of the guests will soon forget. 
     As you recall, the occasion was a surprise affair for over a hundred people. My wife is full of praise when she recounts how helpful you were in staging the party. Thanks for providing so many practical suggestions and proposing a song list which complimented the affair. This was no easy matter, since the guest list ranged from college age to retirement plus 20 years. I particularly enjoyed the singers using wireless microphones which allowed them to perform among the dinner tables and on the dance floor.
    Let me time my hat to you and your band again, Joe. All of the efforts both during the party and behind the scenes made the party a complete success. I hardly can wait until my surprise 70th!"
Scott Sturman
"We heard a ton of comments about the band -- people loved it!!   We really appreciated the fact that we were able to talk during dinner and weren't drowned out by music.   As you know, the people there loved to dance -- and filled up the dance floor from the start to the finish.    We will surely recommend you to other people!   Thanks for letting us use your keyboard!!"

“Joe Lenigan’s Band is the best around.”  That is what I keep hearing from everyone who has ever attended one of their performances or danced to their music.
As an event coordinator, I recommend and hire the best and in my book that is Joe Lenigan.  The music ranges from the oldies, Frank Sinatra, show tunes to the swing, country, hip hop and all the newest and the latest.  Best of all, you can count on Joe to give you your monies worth every time plus he is creative and will help you with valuable suggestions.  I have worked with Joe Lenigan since the early 90’s and he is dependable and he is “The Best”.

-  "Well done – as I knew it would be! As the event planner / coordinator for the CSUF’s Viticulture & Enology Department’s annual fundraiser, A Celebration of Wine, I’m responsible for presenting a first-class event to a state-wide audience and you never let me down. This audience represents a wide cross-section of attendees from young to older. With your wide range of music spanning the different music types and eras, your band plays an important role in our success. Along with nearly 100 wineries from across the state and food from nearly 50 respected restaurants, you’re the icing on the cake – offering a wonderful, get up and dance musical experience during our Coffee & Desserts time. Each year this part of our event grows which I’m sure is reflective of your broad range of music, the fun and interaction between your band and our audience, and word getting around that you’ll be there once again. Here’s to the last 10 years – looking forward to the next! Be sure to put us down for June 7, 2009 – same time & same place!"

-   "I would like to thank you for the great performance of you and your band for my daughter’s Wedding.  I cannot tell you how many compliments I got for your performance.  You and your band’s performance made it a first class affair.  Your services exceeded my expectations.  One of the guests commented on how the band could move from one style of music to the next so easily.  He informed me he also plays professionally and he thought you were one of the best bands he has ever heard.
Again, thank you and the band for making such a great evening even better."

-  "People have not stopped talking about our Gala event at the Radisson Hotel on February 4, 2006.  Thank you for making it a success.  I heard comments such as, "This has been the most fun Gala by far", "This was a great way to end the conference.  Everyone worked hard and it was great to cut loose and have fun", and "You have raised the bar with the Gala entertainment".
The most enjoyable sight was seeing our state board members out on the dance floor - for every dance.  They were very impressed with Central Valley for putting together such a great conference.  The Gala Banquet was the last event of the conference, so that is how they will best remember us.
Thank you again and I am looking forward to more occasions of being on the dance floor with your band."

-  "Joe Lenigan's Little Big Band was the highlight of my daughter's recent wedding reception.  From the wonderful full sound of classic big band music to the rhythmic upbeat rock music of the 60s, 70s, 80s, etc.  it was first class all the way.  This band made the reception!  As hosts of this event, we were complimented all evening on the fabulous band that was playing! They made us want to get up and dance!  Singers Bob and Debbie couldn't have been better.   Their voices blend so well together and their personalities come shining through their music.   The smooth sound of the 3 piece combo during the hor d'oeuvres hour was just the right ambiance for everyone settling in at the reception and awaiting the arrival of the wedding party. I knew if Joe Lenigan's Band was playing at our event that it would most certainly be a night to remember and my hopes became reality."

-  "Engaging.... In a word this is what the LIVE sounds of Joe Lenigan's Little Big Band will do for you and your event; it will ENGAGE you, creating an atmosphere that will be remembered by you and your guests for years to come."
With "Automation" everywhere, every day, and so many of us on "AUTO PILOT" why bring a D.J. to your event when such quality talent is available locally?
Live music allows you the opportunity to customize tempo to your crowd, I have had the opportunity to work with Joe and his "Little Big Band" on several occasions and his group is First Class from start to finish and will not disappoint you or your crowd.
Joe's talented team of musicians and vocalists have customized their work to fit the mood of every event I have planned, from my own wedding to a recent back stage gala for the Fresno Metropolitan Museum at the Kenny G concert, which was a smashing success.
Wishing you an event that you will cherish in your memories for years to come!"
