Bride & Groom
Terry - Oh my GOSH.....was I ever wrong to worry!!!! EVERYbody LOVED the band! They were the absolute PERFECT band for us....wonderful 1st song: "You Send ME"......Collette, in the office, said they practiced a lot that afternoon, including, "You Send Me", and that the staff just loved them, too. Their soft jazz thru dinner was just the right thing, and then their dance music afterwards was great, too. They stayed till 11:00 and a few people were still dancing, but really, probably could have left a little earlier, as it was an older crowd, and we all crash earlier than the young-ins. But really, Terry, we could not have been more pleased and delighted with anybody else! Plus, they were adorable and charming! Steve , Rachael, and Jenny all loved them, too; apparently, they were one of the easiest bands to work with, as well. Soooo, thank you, thank you, for talking me off the ledge....you were absolutely right: perfect match for us!
Terry, I don't have their email, so could you forward this to them for me, please? Many thanks. Oh, also, if you need a typed or hand-written letter about them, were happy to do that, as well!

Event for North Carolina Governor
The Business was great. They even sent a thank you note for booking them which was a nice added touch. We got lots of great compliments on both the event and the band.

Mark & Bobby (Nov. 4th, 2011)
Good Morning Jim - I just wanted to say thank you so much for making Melissa & Brad's wedding reception so much fun for them! You and your band members always do such an incredible job!
Terry - Just getting back to the real world after our honeymoon in California! I want you to know we absolutely LOVED this band. Every aspect of the evening was done perfectly, and I cannot tell you how many people have raved about them to us over the past few weeks. They were so professional and talented, and even hung around a bit chatting with my family afterwards. I loved their music, FANTASTIC, and they really made the reception. I don't think we stopped dancing at all. I have recommended East Coast, as well as the Business via EastCoast, several times and will continue to do so. Lots of engagements lately!
Thank you so much for playing our wedding last weekend!! You all did such an amazing job... not one person was off the dance floor all night! All anyone is talking about is how great you all were. And of course, thank you for learning "night shift"...that was Christian's highlight from the entire wedding. Y'all are the best!!
Hey Jim - I just wanted to let you know that y'all were so amazing on Saturday! Everyone was raving about y'all. Thank you so much for everything, and I hope y'all had as much fun as we did. You made our reception truly amazing! I will definitely be recommending y'all to everyone I know. Thanks again! Take Care,

Bride & Groom
Jim - We cannot say enough good things. The Business absolutely exceeded our expectations and all of our friends and family just keep talking about how much fun you all are! We too had a blast -- dancing and cutting up on the dance floor and you truly helped to make dad's night with our surprise for him. We are so glad to hear you guys had fun too; it is clear that you all love what you do - we just hope our crowd made it a little easier than usual. All in all - the whole wedding weekend was a ball and you guys more than played your part in that. Thank you so much; we look forward to passing your name around and tracking you guys down on our next visit to the area. Our best,
Elizabeth & Jason O. (Sept 24th, 2011)

Good Morning Ellie:
Good morning Jim,
I cannot say thank you enough for being the most amazing band EVER! You guys made Rad and I's wedding night. It was simply perfection! Classy jazz into the dance party of the year...everyone is still singing your praises. You guys rocked the house, or should I say lawn... it was simply a night we will never forget. Thank you, thank you, thank you! PS. be sure to send us the album, we can't wait! PPS. You've got a family of friends in NYC and Charleston, let us know if you're ever visiting!!! - much love, Megan & Rad B. (October 20th, 2012) ~ Charleston, SC Wedding
Thank you all SO much for coming out for the Lenovo & Microsoft Windows 8 event on 10/25 in Morrisville NC. The event was very well attended and you guys put on an amazing performance!! I enjoyed chatting with you while you set up. Please know that I will refer you frequently!! Amy A. (October 25th, 2012) Microsoft Launch Party
We didn't know where to begin when trying to book a band for the reception. We wanted a group that could do music that our generation and our parents (and grandparents!) could dance to, which seemed like a tall order. When my cousin (who is himself a musician in Asheville) called me to tell me that he normally hates wedding bands but saw The Business recently and thought they were great, we booked them on the spot. Jim and his team were nothing short of fantastic. They played a mix of 60s/motown, big band era, and wedding classics. We started dancing as soon as we arrived at the reception at 6ish, and danced all night long. EVERYONE was on the dance floor and had the best time. They were also extremely accommodating of our requests. They send you a list with their repertoire well in advance, and you can tell them what you absolutely want (and don't want) played. We ended up putting the same song on both lists, and when a guest specifically requested it, Jim quickly took me aside to make sure it was ok before he played it. :-) We played an iPod with country and contemporary songs during their two breaks, and they also agree to learn one new song for your event. In my case, they not only learned the song but agreed to let me sing it to my hubby. It was a highlight! Ellie, their agent at EastCoast Entertainment, handled all the administrative details leading up to the wedding with the utmost professionalism and ensured that everything went smoothly. We can't say enough nice things about The Business. Booking them was the best decision we made, and we made some good ones!
"The Business, are true professionals who make a direct connection with audience members from the moment they hit the stage. In the world of live music as in theatre, a proverbial "fourth wall" commonly separates the performers from their audience, but that wall is destroyed by The Business who create an experience where audience members are participants in the celebration as opposed to being mere consumers. I've been privileged to watch The Business perform on numerous occasions. Their shows are characterized by diversity of material, superior musicianship, and danceable rhythms. The blend of familiar songs from the sixties through the eighties never fails to produce smiles, celebratory shouts, and dance floors filled with satisfied celebrants. Audience members always feel like they've gotten more than their monies worth and leave feeling like they've participated in a celebratory experience as opposed to just attending a concert. In any field of endeavor, excellence and professionalism lead to success. The Business have demonstrated that they know how to please an audience and have developed a loyal fanbase who follow them from venue to venue to experience good times and good vibrations. I recommend them highly."

The Business brings the "Real Deal" to your event. Six of the best players that Western North Carolina has to offer comprise this incredibly energetic and soulful group. You will delight on the dance floor or from your seat as the music is infectious to dancers and listeners alike. Whether you prefer a classic vocal jazz ensemble or a "blow the roof off the place" dance band, or both, The Business delivers the goods. Even if you don't like surprises, you'll love this one. Treat yourself and your guests to the best in the business and let The Business do the rest.
