This band was perfect for our wedding reception working in coordination with the caterers to make a perfect evening. Anyone who spoke to me at the wedding reception and afterwards always included a a statement about how great the band was. They kept people dancing and singing with there amazing musical skills.

I looked around for bands for our wedding for almost 5 months. When I came across Ariel Music and Events website, I was blown away by their sound! I had a few of my friends go see them at a free showcase and they said they had a great time. I booked them right after! They were so great about setting up times to talk, especially with me planning this whole thing out of state. To top it all off, the band was absolutely fantastic at our wedding!!! It has almost been a full month, and people are still talking about how fabulous the band was! Thank you for making our night so special and so much fun!

Ariel has been the entertainment for the Red Cross Celebrate Red Gala several times over the past 5 years. Their quality of musicianship is excellent and they have wonderful energy! Their manager works in great detail with you to meet your event's needs - for example, we needed low volume background music for the dinner portion of the night followed by upbeat dance music to close out the evening. We have had difficulty with lower volume requests with other entertainment in the past but Ariel did exactly as we requested and the guests were extremely pleased! Their prices are reasonable, too, and they are always reliable. Highly recommend them for any event!

I got married on February 17th and used Ariel for my band. They were amazing!!! Everything went so perfectly. Liz is so nice and very easy to work with. The band played all the songs we wanted them to play and did not play any of the songs on our do not play list. People from our wedding are still talking about the band and keep saying how amazing they were. The night was so perfect and I could not be happier with how Ariel performed. Definitely use them. You will not regret it!

We love Heartbeat Dance Band!!!!!! We worked with Elizabeth from Ariel Music & Events and had Heartbeat play at our last two annual black tie events and they do not disappoint! They are an amazing band with a wide range of music selection from the old Big Band standards to the current pop hits. Heartbeat is fun and gets everyone up and out of their seats ready to dance the night away. Michael has an amazing voice and charms everyone with his smooth Sinatra style dinner music. Christi and the other musicians were super engaged with everyone and intuitively knew exactly the music everyone wanted to hear!!! Our members (lawyers and judges) are excited to know Heartbeat/Ariel will be the band at next year’s Barristers’ Ball and we can’t wait to see them again in 2019!!!!
