“The Alex Donner Orchestra was a fantastic choice for my daughter’s wedding reception in DC! (They play all over the place.) Their playlist is enormous yet they had no sheet music in front of them…astonishing! From big band to contemporary, they covered it all and kept the dance floor hopping. ”

“One of the things that made us choose Alex Donner over other bands, is that we felt the focus still remained on us as the Bride and Groom, rather than a band that wanted to be the center of attention. They did an amazing job of reading the crowd, and slowing things down/speeding things up as required. EVERYONE was dancing, and we got fantastic compliments on the band afterwards. Highly recommended!”

“I was very impressed at the range of music they could play at the drop of the hat. Even though they had prepared for a different genre, they transitioned very well. Everyone at the reception danced well into the night and were so grateful for the awesome music. Alex Donner Entertainment has packages for most budgets. And for a wedding reception, where the most important thing besides the couple is the band, i highly recommend them.”
