It was an abnormal event, something special!! I'm very happy how it was for a couple reasons: 1- The customer service, everyone did what I asked for! The songs by the meal and by dancing was exactly as discussed, No intro's, Etc. 2- The sound was beautiful, of course a lot had to do with the way the hall was an open air space, but the bottom line it was a great event, everyone was dancing throughout the night! Thanks and Hatzloche!
Freilach did an outstanding job at my daughter’s wedding on May 17, 2015. We had started planning the musical aspects of the affair very early because we were all aware that the various members of the wedding party had distinct and sophisticated tastes. Moreover, the venue we had chosen (Capitale, in New York City) was a challenging space because of its high ceilings and hard surfaces. Choosing the music and singers for the event was a collaborative process, with my daughter and her fiancé making many of the choices, while my wife and I made others. Avrumi Schreiber made sure to visit the venue in order to get a sense of the challenges it presented and guided us through the complexities of selection and educating us in the process. He had a well tuned sense of how a particular musical piece might sound in place and gently steered us in the optimal direction. Eventually, our choices expanded to include a multitude of Hebrew songs, a healthy selection of classical and jazz music, a bit of swing and an extended series of social dance music sets. The band handled all of these with aplomb. We were particularly pleased with the music at the chuppah. These pieces presented particular challenges as each group in the wedding party walked down to specifically chosen pieces, none of which were repeated and all of them unusual selections. The choices ranged from the sweet to the dramatic and required a fair amount of rearranging in order to accommodate the instrument availability. Our guests were thrilled with the result. In short, Freilach was professional, able to solve the inevitable problems in a creative fashion and thorough in their execution. The end result was wonderful.
As Producer of the annual Soul II Soul concert series, I have had the opportunity to work with many bands. I must say that working with Freilach was a very enjoyable experience. Their professionalism coupled with flexibility made working with them a pleasure. Soul II Soul 5773 featuring MBD and 8th Day was a huge hit and the feedback was extraordinary. To a large extent, credit goes to Mendy, Avrumi, and the team at Freilach for how great everything sounded and how smoothly the show ran.
We were awesomely happy. Everyone was talking about the music.
You guys were absolutely FANTASTIC! We got SOOO many positive comments about how beautiful the band played. The sound was great, the songs appropriate in every way, and the Ruach was DerHoiben!! Thank you again. you made the Simcha as beautiful as it truly was.
