Rosetta Stone was formed in 1988, under the direction of Bruce Sullivan. Highlights of their years together include touring eighteen different countries for the U.S. Government, performing aboard the world's largest cruise ship, the S.S. Norway, appearing at The Doral Hotel in Miami, and at Trump's Castle Casino in Atlantic City. Their musical repertoire spans everything from Cole Porter and George Gershwin to classics from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's to more contemporary music of today. With their emphasis on versatility, audience involvement, strong arrangements, and superb vocals, Rosetta Stone is an exciting and fun addition to any special event.
Our daughter got married in Charlottesville on Saturday, and Rosetta Stone performed for the reception at Glenmore Country Club, with the Jazz Trio performing for the cocktail hour before. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the band. Their professionalism, musical ability, and general sense of fun are amazing. Our guests, from 8 to 85 were on the dance floor constantly, and we received compliment after compliment. Most volunteered their opinion that it was the best music they had ever enjoyed at a wedding reception. Where to begin? Desiree's vocals are gorgeous, Bruce Sullivan's nimble keyboards, Bruce Nichols' wonderful (and amazingly designed and lit) lead guitar, Randy's rhythmic bass, and Ty's spot-on drums are the best! And they all sing superbly! Their short clips on the website are really great, but their live performance is even better! All around, after choice of bride and groom, the best decision we made was Rosetta Stone. And they even let me sing "Beyond the Sea" with their amazing back-up accompaniment! The Jazz Trio was also a great choice, getting folks dancing and "In the Mood" even before the reception began. Thanks again for all your help. We would love to book Rosetta Stone again; we hope they travel to Winchester as well, if needed.
Thank you so much for participating in the celebration of our wedding day. The music you and your band provided was absolutely perfect! You sounded sophisticated and it was clear that you all enjoy what you do. I have received so many compliments on the band and how you set the mood for one of the most amazing evenings of my life. It was truly a dream come true and you and the band were a perfect fit.
