The rhythm section members have played for the likes of Chaka Khan, Patti Labelle, Donna Summer, Luther Vandross, Harold Melvin and The Bluenotes, The O'Jays, Musiq, Jill Scott, Ray Charles, Grover Washington Jr., and many others. Every dance style; from standards to funk and soul, R&B, hip hop, rock, and alternative is executed with the highest level of authenticity and richness. When it's time to "party", you will be blown away by the "Baddest Band On The Planet"

Holiday Party

In my view it was one near-perfect piece in a near-perfect evening. There's always room for improvement in anything I do, so I hope to be even better on my part next year; but the Members seemed to think it was the best Holly Ball ever. El and the Group were terrific, appropriate when the music needed to be more muted, and had the whole place (including the balcony) really jumping when the "get down with it" dancing was going on. El has it going on, if you ask me. Please accept our congratulations and our thanks.

Fancy Dress was a hit this year; the best one we have had in a long time. Carnivale absolutely killed it. You were spot about them, and El is a great guy. I cant thank you enough for all you helped me with this year.

Already looking forward to next year.

Bride

Carnivale was absolutely fantastic. I couldn't have asked for a better band to play at our wedding. A number of guests came up to me at and after the event and told me that it was the best wedding band they had ever heard. El was also a true pleasure to work with. If Carnivale needs any references, you should feel free to use me as a contact.
