Hey Mike!
Adrian and crew were fabulous on Friday night! The family (specifically Mom) could not stop raving about them! She mentioned wanting to connect with you all regarding sending Adrian and his crew a gratuity.
Really kept the dance floor moving, prompted guests well, and Adrian was communicative as always!
Another great show!

Hi Mike,
Adrian and the band were flat awesome. The only regret I had was that I forgot to even try to say hello to him. I will blame that on coronadistancing. Our planner, Alexis Milby from LK Events, coordinated everything. She was thrilled when I told her who would be playing. She has worked with Adrian a bunch and said he is a dream to work with.
Because of the weather (too wet in the garden for the ceremony), we moved the ceremony inside. My organist from our church reached out to Adrian to see if he could borrow his keyboard instead of lugging a second one from the church. Adrian was so kind and generously allowed Charles to use his keyboard. We were so grateful. This actually simplified things for our videographer, too.
I stand by an earlier email to you regarding your attention to detail and your responsiveness. As a former corporate leader, I appreciated that more than you know. I have nothing but kudos for Adrian and for Sam Hill. I will happily write a review for the Knot.
All the Best to you,
Nancy

Hi Mike!
We loved working with Sam Hill. The process was so easy and we were given great options that fit our budget and tastes. We have been recommending you to all of our friends with upcoming weddings!
The Adrian Duke Project was incredible!! We received so many compliments on the band, their style, and our first dance song. Adrian was very relaxed and accommodating to our requests and even some last minute changes. He was responsive via email and so easy to work with. Our guests were on the dance floor all night long! The song list was awesome and the quality of all of the musicians was top notch. They made our reception!!

Thank you for your note! They were amazing! I mean they surpassed all expectations (and they were high based on previous reviews)!
I am so appreciative of the professionalism and talent that Sam Hill offered. It was worth the investment in a large band even though we had a smaller venue. They had the floor full all night.
Thanks again! Please make sure Adrian knows how much I appreciate him and what he brought to our wedding.

posted 9/17/19:
Hiring The Adrian Duke Project through Sam Hill Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. From day one, Andy was so easy to work with and helped me to select the perfect performers for our event. Adrian was super easy to work with too and took all of our requests for the reception as well as for our special dances. The band was lively and kept the guests on the dance floor the whole night. Thank you all so much for making our special day even more perfect!

Hi Mike,
We were thrilled with Adrian and and the entire band. Extremely professional, polite, not demanding, sounded excellent, and we continue to get comments from friends about “how good the band was.” They played exactly what we asked for. There was no space on the dance floor for the last two hours.
I will be sure to leave a review on The Knot. Let me know if you want any more info.

Andrew,
The Adrian Duke Project was awesome! The music was fantastic. We knew they were good after hearing their promos, but they were unbelievable in person. We got so many compliments from our guests, and everyone was blown away. They have such a huge variety of styles and songs. They indulged us with softer jazzier music while everyone ate, and then ramped it up afterwards for the big party. We all had the best time, and I would highly recommend them to absolutely anyone. They were also really easy to work with. We waited until the last minute to find them, and then even longer to discuss music selection, and it really came down to the wire with a few last minute requests, and THEN we made some changes on the fly at the wedding. I'm sure we weren't the most organized or easiest to work with, but they were so accommodating in every respect. They made everything happen smoothly, and we really appreciated their ability to roll with the changes. 10/10 would book again.
As for Sam Hill, you guys were great as well. Probably the most easily navigated wedding band websites we looked at. We loved how many options you had and how they were laid out by cost. We also really appreciated all the music and videos from the bands online to review.
And then talking through different options directly with you could not have been easier.
Thanks again for all your help,
Ben & Dylan

The Adrian Duke Project was fantastic! They exceeded our expectations in every way. So many of our friends and family (lots of musicians in our family) raved about the band and told us how they made their night. Our dance floor was huge and it was filled up the entire night with dancing. I am so happy to have found them and will be keeping track of their show schedule to see them again in the future!
Thanks Adrian for making our wedding night the best night of our lives!

5star review posted on WeddingWire.com
from 9/29/18 wedding in Staunton VA:
ADRIAN DUKE PROJECT We used Sam Hill to book the Adrian Duke Project to play at our wedding reception in Staunton, VA. The band was fantastic, very professional and consummate musicians. They set the tone during cocktail hour with a nice jazz set and then had the dance floor packed until the last song during the reception. The guests did not want the band to stop (the drummer also had a showstopper performance during last song). Great song selection and easy to work with. Highly recommend. Sam Hill was also great, very communicative and helpful.

Hi Andy,
Thanks for reaching out. We are heading home from our honeymoon during which we spent a lot of time talking about our wedding, particularly the band. We thought they were fantastic and were exactly what we wanted. Very professional and obviously excellent musicianship.
In particular, we felt that they got the crowd on to the dance floor and had great energy during the songs. The dance floor was packed all night, which is exactly what we wanted, and our guests were definitely hoping for “one more song.”
We will leave positive reviews on the sites you mentioned. It was a pleasure working with Sam Hill and we will recommend to others.

Best,
Dane and Micaela

Anne and I were completely thrilled by the Adrian Duke band. We, the kids, and all of our guests were blown away by this highly talented, classy group. Adrian gave cocktail hour just the right cool feeling on the lawn, in spite of the heat on a hot muggy afternoon. Later, great vocals by Adrian and Theresa and awesome musical accompaniment by the band made the evening magic – they say they know how to keep folks on the dance floor and they proved it. In short, we loved everything about the performance and found all the business aspects leading up to it completely satisfactory.
Thank you,

Hi Andy,
We were so happy with Adrian Duke and his band we received numerous compliments about the music and how great they were! He played the requested jazz/swing style songs for the cocktail hour and it was not too loud, so guests could mingle and visit easily. The song to which Kate and Efren danced Pure Imagination was just perfect he worked with them to make sure it was the version that was performed by Harry Connick, Jr. and everyone loved it!
Adrian and his group got everyone out on the dance floor after dinner and played straight through till the end of the evening. He was able to incorporate songs that were requested by the bride and groom along with songs he felt were appropriate for the crowd, and no one was disappointed!!
Adrian and the band members are so very professional and provided a classy and enjoyable evening of music for our event at Mount Ida Farm and Vineyard it was a perfect evening and we will be forever grateful!
Warmly,

We knew that we didn't have to worry about them when it came to the big day because the process of sharing our details was so clear & easy in advance! No complaints at all from us: they were there and set up by the time that we got there, and they kicked off right when they were supposed to! They seemed to put all their energy into performing and we had such a great time. Many guests have commented to us that the band was their favorite part people were on the dance floor the entire time. My dad was beyond happy with them too, which meant so much. Please pass our gratitude on to all their members as they were the biggest hit of the wedding!

I believe one of our guests even tried to hire them on the spot for another event I'll be sure to pass along information to them. I was not the most communicative bride, so for not having much interaction with the band I can't believe how smoothly it went!
They were very accommodating when I requested a song during the reception and it ended up being one of my favorite memories of the night.

I can definitely say that the Adrian duke project surpassed every expectation we had. Adrian was willing to learn a song for our first dance, played our requests and even let my friend, who is a nationally touring musician sit in on drums. Music is a big deal to Kaitlyn and I and we could not be happier with how things went. They really put on an amazing show for us, and Adrian said that not many weddings he plays were as interactive as ours was, so that was really nice to hear. It was super easy working with you all. Thanks again!

My (now) husband and I LOVE to dance. It was the number one priority for us to have a fun band at our wedding, and Sam Hill Entertainment did not disappoint. I had heard Adrian Duke Project previously, but when I inquired with Andy at Sam Hill, he made it happen for us!! Their communication to us was always prompt and kind, as well as extremely informative and personal. As far as bands go, Adrian Duke Project was 10/10 and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band!! They were so fun and talented and kept the energy alive the entire night!

Adrian Duke was a tremendous hit at our wedding on Sunday. Easy to work with, and the music, as one guest commented, was more concert quality than wedding band, and every tune was danceable. The deafening applause after their final tune was further evidence of the high quality. The preview videos we looked at/listened to really did not do this band justice – they’re so incredible live.

Pat and I were so happy with the Adrian Duke Project! They were so easy to work with the month before and even answered questions up until the day before the wedding. They did a wonderful job on our first dance song and parent songs even though the songs are not on their typical song list. They played a great mix of music during the night and avoided a lot of the typical wedding songs which was exactly what we wanted.
We had guests coming up to us that night saying that was the fastest they had ever seen a dance floor fill up at a wedding and that was definitely a result of the band. Pat and I kept saying we wanted to spend the majority of our reception out on the dance floor with our friends and family and the band made it all that we could have hoped for.
I'd be more than happy to be a reference if anyone is looking to book the band in the future.

Thank you so much for recommending them, they had a great song list prepared and even fulfilled many requests the best was Take a Load off Annie, put the load right on methat the groom dedicated to his bride ANNIE! As the mother of the bride, it brought tears to my eyes but looking around...I was not the only one! Thanks again, it was a great night! I will figure out how to get to THE KNOT and recommend Sam Hill and The Adrian Duke Project!

Hi Andy,
Thank you so much for all of your help in planning our wedding. We absolutely adored Adrian Duke and his music the entire band was just fantastic! People were on the dance floor the entire night long and he played so many things that we loved. Independently, their band is just so talented musically! It was awesome to watch them jam. We had so many friends and family come up and let us know how awesome the band was, which was so nice to hear since we loved it so much, too!
The customer service you and your team provided for us was great. We appreciate your understanding when we needed to reschedule our wedding and the support your provided us throughout the process. Thank you again for everything.

Andy,
The Adrian Duke Project did a phenomenal job providing music at the reception for Caryn and Guy. The band played through dinner, and as soon as the meal was completed, the dance floor lit up and stayed full until the evening was over. The quality of the music was amazing. The selections were perfect. Honestly, I was so impressed with them! Please give them our thanks, for making the wedding reception so much fun.
Donna Lyle


My husband and I decided that it was very important to book a live band for our reception. We are both from musical backgrounds, and so having a talented and musically welltrained band was very important to us. We fell in love with the sound of the Adrian Duke Project after hearing them on the Sam Hill Entertainment website, and decided to book them. They were wonderful to work with, and one of my favorite parts of the night was when my husband looked at me smiling and excited because they had learned a new song that we requested just for our wedding! They had fantastic energy during the night, and they were professional performers who provided excellent entertainment and music without being cheesy or kitschy. They sounded even better in person than on their demo. All of our family members and friends (many of whom are professional musicians or music professors) were impressed with the band’s style, sound, and range of music. They played the perfect music and we danced all night long! We would book them again in a heartbeat, and would definitely recommend them to our friends.

I really don't think any of the guests were sitting down long once the music got started. And the female vocalist...wow. She is awesome.

I can't say enough good things about Adrian Duke's band! They were extremely professional and low maintenance. The music was great last years dance chair proclaimed best band ever! She also said she's never seen any of our members still dancing at midnight and all credit goes to the band!
I really appreciate their flexibility. We were late getting to dinner, and the band was getting ready to start Adrian and I decided that it would be better for him to play the piano during dinner and he and the sax player did an incredible set at a moments notice.
I am so glad we chose the Adrian Duke Project for our dance can't wait to see them again!

Hi Andy,

The Adrian Duke Project was INCREDIBLE. We had SO MUCH FUN. Loved, loved, loved the music. They stuck to our requests perfectly. I don't know if you got to see the form I filled out for them, but I made some ridiculously specific preferences, including play and do not play requests, our preferred ratio of music genres, and even asked that they put together a medley (with recommended tempo ranges) for the fatherdaughter dance. Not only did they make it all work in the best way possible, but they were gracious and completely professional about how specific we were (when I'm sure it's easier for them to have more creative license). Everyone was dancing the whole time. The number one compliment we received from guests was about how great the band/music was they're still talking about it. I almost want to get married again just so I can book them for my wedding a second time. Maybe when my future kids get hitched. Thanks for all your help making it happen!

Hi Andy,
The Adrian Duke Project was incredible! They were very professional, very kind, and very fun to dance to. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I can say that their musicianship is of the highest quality. They also did a really good job of reading the room: slow songs when people needed some romance, and they were quick to switch to something funky when the dance floor started to thin out. My hope was that the last 2 hours of the wedding would be a giant dance party. Mission accomplished. I have also received countless compliments from awed guests about the quality of the band.
Needless to say, excellent job. Thank you for helping Nicole and I make our wedding the celebration that we hoped it would be. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to express my satisfaction.

Hi Candace,
Oh my Gosh they were wonderful!!!
Prior to the wedding I was in touch with Adrian for some specific requests. He was so helpful and easy to work with.
We had an outdoor cocktail hour and a trio play...wonderful!
The reception was amazing. We had a formal sit down dinner in a bit of a high end place. I was actually concerned the meal might drag out and get in the way of the party. That did not happen thanks to the great music. When the band started playing everyone got up up to dance and it just kept on going. I actually think some guests skipped some of the food to enjoy the band. Theresa is the best! She recognized and remembered us from our other daughter's wedding, where they played 2 years ago. She is such a nice person and what a voice. At the end of the reception they played for almost an hour and a half without a break. They literally brought the house down.
That was our last daughter to be married so no more weddings. We are going to come up with a reason for another good party so we can have them come and play again. They are really so special.
Thank you!

They were the consummate professionals throughout the evening delivering a fantastic and entertaining experience for all of our guests during the cocktail hour, dinner and reception. Numerous guests remarked on the quality of the band and their wide range of musical ability, playing everything from classic rock to Motown.
Leading up to the wedding, dealing with Adrian and Sam Hill proved to be an extremely easy and professional experience. Prior to the big day, Adrian corresponded with us several times over email confirming the date, time and type of music requested. He was early for setup and ready to play the music we requested during the precise times identified in our schedule.

Hi Andy,
Thanks so much for all of your help with this. Honestly, I can't tell you how happy we were with the job that Adrian and his band did at the wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect... they were professional, fun, and they sounded amazing.
In all honesty, the two things I heard the most from all of our guests was 1) how beautiful Ashleigh looked and 2) how awesome the band was. No joke. They blew everybody away.
We will definitely pass along your info to any friends and family and certainly you'll be our first stop when we throw another party someday!

Andy,
I cannot say enough about the success of the Adrian Duke Project on Saturday!
The band was absolutely great! The selections, the musicians and vocalists were exciting, enthusiastic and just wonderful to listen and dance to. Teresa's face lit up when she was on stage. The joint was jumpin' and the crowd loved them! Basically, they're just really so very good!!!
I also enjoyed talking with all of them during the breaks. You can definitely count me as a fan of the ADP. Wow! I want to work with them many times in the future.

They were fabulous! Everyone has been telling us how great they were and how much fun they had. In my opinion, the quality of the music at a wedding is what makes the event memorable or not, and our wedding is absolutely one that people will be talking about for a while! They played the exact styles of music and songs that we had requested, and everybody had a blast. Thanks so much!

Dear Andy!
We were so pleased with the band! I can't tell you how many of our guest just raved about them. The dance floor was packed and we had a ball celebrating! I have given their name to many who have asked (along with your name as well!)
They did such a great job in playing music everyone loved and could really dance to. Everyone was having a great time, all generations ...from my 80 old mom to the teenagers and everyone in between. We even had folks singing along at the top of their lungs! Adrian Duke Project fulfilled every expectation we had and then some. In addition to so many commenting on how great they were...we also had several comments on how talented they are , instrumentally and vocally. Many said they were definitely a cut above your normal good wedding/dance band.
We wish them and you all the best and thank you for a fantastic performance.

Adrian was WONDERFUL. Thank you for making our event so perfect!!! Everyone has told us how much fun they had both dancing and listening to the band play. Our family is particularly finicky when it comes to music...and he hit all of the right notes. My family and I went through his entire song list and sent him an extensive do not play list. Not only did he talk back and forth with me as to what I was really looking for in terms of music, but he went out of his way to make sure I felt comfortable. My Mom (the most outspoken music critic in the family) even said she'd love to book him for an anniversary party next year! His music and band interaction was truly the icing on the cake for us. Thank you!!

I will absolutely (and already have) recommend the Adrian Duke Project to everyone I know...as well as Sam Hill Entertainment. It was so wonderful to work with you all!!

Hi Mike,

Thanks for followingup! We wanted to thank you so much for recommending The Adrian Duke Project! They were fantastic! They kept up the energy throughout the night and did great renditions of the songs we requested, especially our first dance and then a truly epic Hora and Hava Nagila (guests said they had never seen anything quite that incredible before). They played a great mix of slow and fast, older and even threw in some newer.

The female vocalist (who's name escapes me at the moment) finished the night off with a very memorable At Last, capping off a great night of music. We owe much of our party's success to the constant energy and party vibe that Adrian and the band provided. Guests remarked to us throughout the night, and frequently since then, how great the band was and we couldn't agree more.

We could not imagine hiring a better band to have played our wedding and they provided everything we had hoped and more.

Thanks!

Ben and I just had the best time dancing and most everyone was up out of their seats almost the whole time. In addition to doing a great job with our special request songs, Adrian even helped make my parents feel special for their anniversary by putting together one more surprise for them (You're Still the One by the Orleans) that was not on their song list. They were all very professional, very talented, and we'd certainly book them again!

Hey Andy
Thanks for checking in with us. Adrian and his band were amazing. A few key things we were particularly impressed by:
Communication/responsiveness: We emailed Adrian detailed information and had two relatively long calls with him over weekends leading up to the event (2030 mins). He responded quickly and it was clear he diligently read all of our stuff and did a lot of work to accommodate our preferences.
Strong performance of customized song list: The band played the songs from the list we had requested, and even played a lot of songs that we requested that were not on their official list but that Adrian thought the band members knew. This made for a great night as we played a lot of hits with the UVA crowd. The band really made an impact on the evening as their performance was stellar. The female lead was especially good as she was able to sing more softly/mellow when necessary (which was key for us as we did not want her to dominate) but she really turned it on for a few solos which people loved.
Adrian was completely on point for everything and made the wedding especially memorable!
Thanks again for the help, and please pass along our thanks to the band again.

Hi Adrian,
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the band for doing an absolutely unbelievable job on Saturday. I may be biased, but the dozens of people who told Erin and I the same are not: you guys were the single best party band we've ever heard. From the first dance (not even on your song list) to the outstanding finale, you and the band just knocked it out of the park. You even managed to get my 87 year old grandmother on the floor for the last hour, the same woman who needed help getting off the bus. Two people have already asked for your contact info for events in DC coming up too!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You gave us the soundtrack for best night of our lives!
All the best,

Sorry for just now getting back to you. The wedding was absolutely incredible, and The Adrian Duke Project deserves huge amounts of credit for that. They were phenomenal!
Adrian's preceremony music and the pieces we selected for the ceremony were beautiful. Many guests did not realize it was the same keyboardist who played at the reception and commented on how much they enjoyed the music played at the ceremony.
The energy of the band during the reception matched our guests excitement...and on a hot summer night too! Camm and I truly could not have been happier with our choice and their performance. It was such a complement to the whole evening to have such a lively and wildly talented group of musicians play for us. We've also heard
nothing but great feedback from our guests. The only complaint was that it had to come to an end!
I thank you so much for your help throughout the process. It was such a pleasure having the Adrian Duke Project and their wonderful sound at our weddingsomething we won't soon forget. As I know more and more people getting engaged and planning events, I will be more than happy to pass along our recommendations of both the band and Sam Hill Entertainment.

I am sorry it's taken me so long to write you back. Adrian Duke and his band were absolutely incredible. We had high hopes, and he surpassed them all. I am quite the perfectionist, and far and away the most onpoint, professional, and talented person we had involved in our wedding was Adrian and his band. For every other vendor I could give you a list of things that weren't what we discussed, either due to laziness or oversight, but not Adrian, I have nothing but glowing and grateful comments for him and his bandmates. They did everything we asked them do (played all our requested songs, and even let our guests and my husband and I on stage to sing along for some songs), did everything we asked them not to do (refrained from all the please do not play songs). All of the musicians were so so talented, and the lead female vocalist and Adrian: WOW! The music they played during dinner, and then later during dancing were perfectly suited for each phase of the reception. Our dance floor was absolutely packed for the entire dancing time. I attached a couple pictures, but I have a lot more if you'd like to see them. These are just from friends, I'll also forward our photographer's shots once we get them back. I truly cannot thank them enough, they made our reception so memorable and special and perfect. It was a great treat to have them play. We've been very excited to share there name with all our guests who asked about them, and there were many!! Please pass our our sincere thanks to them.

Adrian and the band were FABULOUS! The guests raved about them.
Adrian did a great job at keeping the volume down just enough for
people to carry on conversations, which was important to us. We
wanted our guests fully engaged in the party...interacting, in motion,
mingling. When it was time to fill the dance floor and keep it
filled, he ramped it up at exactly the right time. Not only did the
venue have to turn the lights on and kick us all out at the end of the
night, but the dance floor was filled with three generations of
dancers, not just the very young, and Adrian and his group of very
talented musicians were totally reponsible for that.
Our phone has been ringing off the hook with calls from guests who
said that this was the best wedding they ever attended. That it
wasn't just a wedding reception, but a really great party. No
ordinary wedding band could have helped us create that. We would
recommend the Adrian Duke Projekt to anyone wanting to throw a really
memorable event.

Adrian and his band did not miss a beat; they were fantastic. We never had to worry about music selection once, which was a huge relief given the number of other responsibilities that accompany planning a wedding. Fortunately, Adrian has an adept ability to read the crowd and provide them with music that continues to keep them moving. Once the event was in full swing, I'm not sure that people stopped dancing, even to use the restroom! Adrian's voice is incredible (so too is the female vocalist's, oh my!) and we have not stopped receiving compliments on how perfect the band was for our event.

I provided Adrian with a list of about 10 songs, and asked him if he'd have a problem coming up with what we'd want for the rest of the evening based on that brief list... there was no problem at all! His calm demeanor helped me relax, and every person in the band had a hand in a great show!

HI Hank,
The band was absolutely wonderful; everyone praised them. Thanks to them and to you and your associates for making it all happen. Below are some comments my wife wrote up for a blog post about our wedding vendors:
Adrian Duke is a wonderful singer and piano player and his band was fantastic. Adrian played piano while our guests were eating lunch, and then the band got everyone dancing during the long, hot Sunday afternoon (not an easy thing to do, as you will know all too well if you’ve ever been to an afternoon wedding!) The band played a wonderful variety of 70s and soul music that was popular with guests of all ages. They played all our special request songs and they sounded GREAT. Adrian sings, but he also brought a female singer with him for those songs that only women can sing… she was great too. The band was punctual, professional, friendly and easygoing. They said they’d had a late night gig in Virginia the night before, but you’d never have known by watching them. I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to have REAL LIVE musicians playing at your wedding. They can respond to the crowd’s energy and create a mood in a way that a DJ just can’t do. There’s nothing better than dancing to live music at your wedding…unless it’s watching your 11 year old brother figure out that HE likes to dance, or your 6 year old brother perform his new moves for all your family and friends. Or hearing your various aunts tell you that they finally managed to get your reluctant uncles to dance with them! There is no way that this would have happened with canned music. My local family is already busy trying to think up excuses (anniversary parties? birthdays?) to hire this band again. We dealt with their agent and everything was streamlined and taken care of for us.
We'd be glad to be a reference for Adrian and for your services at any time.
Many thanks for all your work,
Derek

Hi there,
It's Allison Wade. I'm writing from my work email account instead of my Yahoo one. You had asked about the Adrian Duke Project. Hank, they were everything we hoped for and MORE!!! I was so excited to finally meet them and even got to chat them up a little before the ceremony (there was a traffic pile up on 40, so our ceremony was delayed a little). I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them a little more before the wedding started, and the music was nothing short of spot on the entire night. I know people are typically supposed to wait until the married couple has their first dance to open up the dance floor, but once the band started playing Into the Mystic during dinner, I couldn't help myself: I grabbed my little nieces and we formed a circle on the dance floor and danced that one out! (See attached picture)! It was AWESOME!!! Our guests continue to rave about how phenomenal the music was, and we just couldn't be more thrilled that in worked out so well.
We definitely had a gut feeling about the Adrian Duke Project, and we are so pleased to see that we were right! Thanks so much to you for guiding us in the right direction and to the band as well it is rare to see such talent in a wedding band! They are leaps and bounds above the typical wedding ensemble. Bret and I can't sing their praises loudly enough!
Thanks so much!!!

Adrian was awesome! He and the band were everything we wanted and then some. They kept everyone dancing the whole night, and did a great job on our special requests. We didn't want the night to end! Thanks for all your help getting the band lined up.

Hi Andrew!
The wedding was amazing, and Adrian and the band were a a HUGE part of that! We were super impressed with their performance (it was even better than we were thinking it would be based on the preview tape you sent us), as were our guests. A bunch of people specifically mentioned how great the band was during the reception; one of our friends was even asking for a lot of specifics about Adrian, how we found them, what agency we used, etc. They played the perfect mix of motown, oldies and classic rock (just like we requested), and hit almost all of our specific song requests. I know many of the guests were requesting songs as well during the reception, and they were very accommodating. So I would definitely say they were a hit!
Hope you've been doing great and thanks again!

Hi Andy,
Adrian and the band were awesome! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. The compliments we have been receiving are the obligatory, “The bride was beautiful” followed closely by, “The band was amazing!” I think everybody from 25 to 95 had a great time.
I was especially happy with how accommodating they were with special requests. The songs requested for the first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and even the cake cutting were not on the band’s posted songlist. I figured it was a long shot, but asked if they could play them, and they did – perfectly! Our first dance was to ‘Beloved One’ by Ben Harper, and I wish I had a recording of Adrian’s version. Who knew that someone who sounds like Ray Charles could make Ben Harper sound so good. There were a minor mishap about when to play songs for the special dances, but Adrian was easy to talk to between sets and everything worked out perfectly. My only regret is that I didn’t have more time to pay attention to the music.
Thank you for working with me and I would absolutely recommend the Adrian Duke Project for any wedding.
Regards,
Brad

Sorry it has taken a while to get in touch with you. We recently moved to Lexington, VA and got back from our honeymoon, so things have been pretty hectic.
The band was great. Really there are no words that can truly describe how much fun and how good they were. Throughout the night everyone was asking about ADP. Even now, three weeks past our wedding date, our friends and family are still asking us where we found them. My parents were a little unsure about spending the money for a band, but told me a few nights ago that we really got a steal from you all. From the moment they arrived they were extremely professional and even more talented. I hope that they had as much fun as we did. My only regret is that we did not audio record the evening so that we could enjoy that night for years to come. They were a major piece to a wedding and reception that went off better than we could have ever hoped.
Now that I am back in Lexington I will definitely tell everyone I know at W&L about them and Sam Hill Entertainment. Kelly and I are already planning to see them again.

Our photographer's husband is actually in his fan club, so before the reception while taking pictures, she just raved about him. He didn't disappoint. We have only been back two days and everyone Emily and I have talked to have commented on the band!
He was amazing! I would give my highest recommendation to them, and would hire them again if we ever had a party that size again. Please, please, Thank Adrian for Emily and me. He was great. He played soft music during dinner, picked it up a notch between courses, and jammed the dance floor the rest of the night!
It was just a gig for them... but Emily and I will remember that night the rest of our lives! And they made the night so much more memorable.
Thank you guys so much,

They took two breaks all night and at both breaks I heard everyone asking when the band was coming back. The crowd seemed a bit demure during cocktail hour and I thought we might end up with an early evening but Adrian and his gang revved them up and kept them dancing until the last possible minute. From a professional perspective, they were also very easy to work with. Adrian and his team hit some heavy traffic coming in to town and I was worried that they wouldn't get set up in time but they did with time to spare! They also cleaned up in record time!

Justin Billcheck was super helpful. I found the whole process of booking the band to be very easy and straightforward. And I felt comfortable and assured in my decision. I also liked all of the email communication. It is hard for me to take personal calls at work but I was able to handle most of it through email and I felt that Sam Hill did a great job of contacting me and sending me everything I needed from the contract, reminders, checklist, etc.

Justin,
Thank you for the follow up and for the congratulations. The wedding went off without a hitch. Now it's back to normal life...
I have been meaning to email Adrian, which I still intend to do. We really couldn't have been happier with the music and with Adrian and his crew. The level of musicianship was so much better than anything else we considered, and the music they played was perfect. I think we were probably on the more difficult end of the high maintenance spectrum in terms of what we were looking for in our reception music. We requested slower jazzier music for the first set or two, and progressively faster music as the night went on.
The band nailed it. Several of the older folks (including my wife's grandfather) loved the jazzier stuff played during dinner, and everyone loved dancing to the faster later that evening. Also, the brass section was awesome, and we were thrilled we got them (I couldn't believe it when Adrian said that most people don't splurge for the brass section). Probably my only concern is that the band was a bit too loud for the space, at least initially, but that was purely a function of the size of the room and the number of musicians, not something that Adrian was doing wrong. I should also mention that they band members did dress very well our wedding was black tie and you did warn me that they don't do black tie. But they all looked great and were very professional, as you promised.
Thank you for your help in getting Adrian Duke to Nashville. I can't recommend him highly enough. If I can ever serve as a reference for him or Sam Hill, I'd be thrilled to do it. And Lauren and I already trying to come up with another reason for a party so we can invite Adrian again.

The Adrian Duke Projek completely exceeded our expectations, which were already pretty high after hearing a sampling of their work. They played a great jazzy set during dinner, then, when dinner was over, they turned up the energy and got everyone out on the dance floor with a great mix of soul and old R&B classics. Everyone we spoke to during the reception told us how much they were enjoying the band and the dance floor was packed until the very last song. Even a couple of months later, whenever the wedding reception comes up someone mentions the band and says they were blown away by them. It was great to not have a cheesy wedding band, but instead a talented band that played great music.

Hi Andy!
Adrian and his Projek were absolutely fantastic. Thanks to them, the Caplanis/Goldberg wedding celebration became a true party. Not only did their great sound get (and keep!) bodies on the dance floor, but they were even so obliging as to allow friends and family to sing with the band! I can't say enough about Adrian's excellent rendition of my selected father/daughter dance song, To Sir With Love, which he learned at our request. I had great concerns that this tune which has historically brought tears to my eyes would reduce me and my father to a sobbing mess on such an emotional day, but Adrian's energetic and soulful cover kept us all smiles and tapping toes.
MANY thanks to the Projek and to you for helping to make our wedding reception such an awesome and memorable affair. Rest assured that, in the future, when friends and family are looking to party, Sam Hill and The Adrian Duke Projek will receive my highest recommendation.
All the best and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I think I'm in love. He is so talented I can't stand it!
It was a departure for the crowd at first but he totally won them over. People are still talking about him.
They did a great job! No complaints here. I hope they enjoyed it.

Hey Justin,
Adrian was greatwe got many complements from many people, particularly the Baton Rouge/New Orleans contingent, who uniformly agreed that Adrian has the New Orleans sound down. I will certainly not hesitate to recommend him again, and though I am in Houston now and will be for some time, I look forward to seeing him in the future when he plays the DC area.
Also, I want to thank yall at Sam Hill for your help, and I will also recommend to anyone searching for live music that they contact Sam Hill Entertainment, and you in particular. Thanks for everything,

Che,
The wedding was great, everything went very well. Adrian was great, everyone was very impressed with his abilities and unique voice. I would definetly use him again for an event, and recommend him as well.Adrian knew every song requested and he also learned a couple of songs for us. I also would recommend Sam Hill, it made the process of finding a great musician very simple. I appreciate your help, if a situation arises were I need to book entertainment for an even in the future I will get back in touch with you. Take care.

Thanks Justin. The whole weekend was an absolute blast. Highlands was the perfect setting (75 & sunny all 3 days) and The Farm at Old Edwards Inn was amazing to say the very least. The biggest shock of the night was Adrian Duke's voice. He was incredible. I think a couple folks thought his music was recorded at first b/c he sounded so much like Ray Charles...but they caught on pretty fast. You were SO RIGHT about his versatility. He somehow managed to please the 20something crowd as well as my grandparents...and they are 90. Grant and I were so amazed by his range of sound and couldn't get over how he nailed Back of Your Hand by Dwight Yoakam. That was NOT a blues/jazz/soul request so we were amazed that he hit it.
Thanks for the great recommendation and let me know if you have more questions. Cheers!

I just wanted to call you and tell you how very very good Adrian's band was on Saturday night at Katie and Josh's wedding. We just loved it. We would definitely use him again, they were so talented! We could not have asked for a more perfect situation. Thanks for lining this up and introducing Adrian to us. We hope to have another occasion to call on you and Adrian soon. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Even our neighbors who listented from afar said he was great. Thanks again, and on behalf of my children, thanks so much. We could not have asked for more perfect music at the wedding!

We thought the Adrian Duke Band was fantastic. The musical style was exactly what we were looking for very upbeat, authentic, and soulful. We've had a lot of people tell us how good the band was and how much fun they had dancing to them. We were very pleased with their performance and would hire them all over again.
I hope you are doing well.
