I am so sorry for not getting back to you!!! I'll be completely honest...Because of my busy career as a Physician Assistant, extended honeymoon out of the country, & a bit of chaos in my since a car accident totaling my car, I have been really bad about responding to personal emails in the last month! Again, I'm so sorry, and was just thinking to myself the other day how I wanted to write back to you to tell you HOW WONDERFUL White Chocolate was!!
My husband and I, plus family members, wedding party, & I strongly believe all guests in attendance at our wedding, would definitely give them an EXCELLENT, OUTSTANDING review!!!! They were absolutely wonderful and made the evening a perfect one!!! All band members were very well-dressed, happy & smiling, so much fun yet very tasteful, and extremely talented!! We knew from other reviews (and yourself) that they were a talented group vocally and instrumentally, but their musical abilities went far above & beyond our expectations!!!!! For weeks now after the wedding, we continue to get lots of compliments on great the band was...how amazing the guitarist was, etc.!!
As you may or may not know, our 1 song request we REALLY wanted played at our wedding was Journey's "Don't Stop Believing!," my husband's all-time favorite song!! Frank Adams was honest with me upfront & told me ahead of time this song was too vocally challenging for most bands... he apologized that they wouldn't be able to perform it. To my husband & I's surprise at the wedding reception, the band performed it with a brilliant twist of involving the guests to help sing the words!!! Words can't describe how much fun that was, & how incredibly happy that made us!!! The last song of the night, the band members wrapped their guitars around Brandon & I's neck & let us take a turn! It was awesome!! :)
On a side note, I communicated with Frank Adams via email several times before the wedding, & in person the night of the wedding. He was such a nice, professional, easy person to work with!! He sent me the most sincere emails, before & after the wedding, and was SO VERY accomodating to my husband & I's music requests!! He truly makes that band!! I certainly hope I'll have another function in the future where I can utilize his band again!!!
Please feel free to post any of my positive words on your website!!
Take care & Happy Holidays!!

Wedding Reception June 2010
The wedding went great this weekend and "all their dreams came true!" The band was awesome!! We really enjoyed working with them and Caroline and her family were very pleased. They did an awesome job with interacting with the crowd,especially towards the end when they came off the stage area and moved thru the crowd with their instruments.

Everything was great with White Chocolate. They were extremely professional, and everybody loved them. I keep getting messages from friends about how fun the band was! Thanks again for your help with everything - I feel like I made such a great choice with White Chocolate!
Frank, We absolutely loved you and your band (White Chocolate) and everyone at the reception had such a blast. You really helped make the reception a real party and that is exactly what Karen and Jason wanted. Thank you so much for helping make the reception such a success and most importantly fun!

I never appreciated how much a band can set the tone of a party until our daughter's wedding. White Chocolate made our wedding reception an absolute blast and true celebration of family and friends. Right after Katy booked the church and club, she booked you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a truly perfect day

White Chocolate was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process! The communication was easy and straightforward and yet they allowed us to customize our event with learning a new song and an introduction prior to the start of dinner. As we were running late, they were willing to play straight through without any breaks which allowed us to really get to the heart of their great music. Thank you, thank you!

White Chocolate was all we could have hoped for and more. Picking a wedding band is tough because you don't know what you're going to get and you want a band that's easy to deal with. White Chocolate is an awesome band! They played every song to perfection and got everyone involved. We literally told them where to show up and they took care of the rest. Whether it was the way they slowed down "crazy love" for our first dance or when they let my good friend sing "johnny be good" (on the fly, I might add), White Chocolate was everything I envisioned the ideal wedding band to be. We could not have made a better choice. PERIOD. Trust me on this one, if a great band that will get everyone involved and MAKE your wedding reception is what you are looking for, look no further. White Chocolate is your band.
Thank you White Chocolate!
Jonathan and Stephanie Y.
We totally enjoyed you guys and had a fabulous time. We got many, many compliments on the band that night and in the days after. Great song selections, great vibe, great players. I guess there's no better way to compliment a band than to recognize the fact that the bride and groom stayed and danced until well after 1 am! Thank you so much for your positive attitude and professionalism. You made our wedding memorable and so much fun. When people stay and dance until 2:00am it really says something. We will tell anyone in need of a great band about our special experience with White Chocolate. Thanks again for a great night!
Dave and Daria P.
Thank you guys for a tremendous hit of an evening! Your ability to interact with the crowd and get people involved was a highlight of the evening. The music mix was outstanding. The energy and enthusiasm from your guys was electric. You'll be back many, many times if I have anything to do with it!
