I greatly appreciate it. Jeff and his band were absolutely great! They were the perfect entertainment for our event. The band was extremely professional and we received tremendous feedback from our guests about the music. We would not hesitate to use Jeff, if and when, we hold another event.
Also want to thank you and Sam Hill for such an enjoyable experience. Everything went so smoothly. Hopefully an event will present itself in the future that allows me to work with you again.
Cheers,

Far exceeded expectations and couldn't have been more accommodating, professional, and warm, not to mention talented! Their selection of music, timing, and general flow of the entertainment was excellent and couldn't have been better. We were so impressed and we thought they did an absolutely amazing job.
To your second question, working with Sam Hill was seamless and easy, we are very happy we worked with you all to get it organized. We will definitely give you guys a shout out on the Knot.

Dear Mike,
The Jeff Decker band was fabulous! My husband considers two things to be of primary importance at a wedding the first is food, the second is that the band is good but doesn't impede conversation(we have left receptions previously when the music got too loud). The Jeff Decker band was perfect in music and volume. Everybody danced and talked and talked and danced. They could not have been better.
Thank you so much.

We were very happy with Jeff and the band: it was easy to communicate and coordinate with them prior to the event, and everything on the day of went very smoothly indeed. The music was terrific, the guests had a wonderful time on the dance floor, and Jeff was a great emcee. Getting live music was a bit of a splurge for us, but I think we're both very happy we did so the Jeff Decker Band brought a great deal of class to the event that we simply couldn't have matched with a DJ or a more modern pop band. Thanks so much!

Hi! Andy!
We were very pleased with the Jeff Decker band. They turned out to be ideally appropriate for the occasion and what I had in mind. People could still have dinner conversation and walk around to other tables. It wasn't too loud and the scene was very classic not loud, modern and dancy so it fit the bill really well. I can tell they have lots of experience reading a situation to see if music should be played to a particular situation. It was unexpectedly very hot that day and I felt they did a wonderful job despite the blistering heat! I hope they felt accommodated.

Everything went amazingly well at the reception! The band knew when to play quieter background music and when the dancing should start. They had prepared the songs that we requested and even let my fatherinlaw (also a musician) sing along for a song. They were also very flexible with our schedule.
In sum, I have no complaints and only the highest praise for the Jeff Decker Band. I will of course refer you to anyone looking for live music in the future.

Thank you for your email followup! The wedding went GREAT and it was nothing short of a dream come true!! I wanted to write a personal note to let you know how things went with the band! I was honestly MORE than impressed. They were FANTASTIC! I believe they were the highlight of my reception. Not only were they easy to work with, they were very kind. Jeff Decker worked with me and allowed me to sing a surprise song to my groom. He was also very accommodating with a special request song for my first dance. The Jeff Decker Band was also the MC of my wedding and his soft, sweet voice was so soothing and not overbearing like many MC's can be. The music was INCREDIBLE and the variety of tunes was fantastic for the event. I not only had wedding attendees ask about the band but also had many vendors as well. Naturally I told them Sam Hill Bands! I will continue to rave about this band and using your site for booking. Thank you for everything and making day so special!

Thank you! John and I said numerous times to one another throughout our reception about how amazing Jeff and his band were! They were true professionals and they truly kicked off our party! Jeff was very gracious, and he and his band rolled with with several schedule changes and made the reception flow naturally. We are so
thankful and that helped us relax. Personally, I was so grateful that they learned my fatherdaughter dance, even though it was not in their repertoire. Having that added gift made it very special.
Thank you again for your help making this possible. Leading up to our wedding, we were asked by several people who would be doing our music. We were happy to tell them then, and now after watching and listening to them firsthand, we will surely recommend your company when we hear the need.
We wish you all the best and a special thanks to Jeff and his band for making our day so special.

Thanks so much for the congratulations! The wedding went beautifullly. As hackneyed as it sounds, it was a dream wedding. It was a really happy occasion and I honestly believe everyone had a great time.
Which leads to your questionthe Jeff Decker band is awesome. They are professional, without a doubt, courteous, gracious, entertaining and livelyyet know when to be unobtrusive and provide background. People I never thought would dance did. To be honest, they were first band I considered and my impulsive choice was absolutely ther ideal choice. With them, I didn't worry about a thing, question a thingaside from asking them not to play At Last for my own personal reasons (i hate it when i hear that at weddings, plus I'm not exactly the youngest bride) and asking for one specific processional, I let them do their thing. And, boy, did they! Every guestages 11 to 90remarked on how much they enjoyed the music. Their music created precisely the atmosphere I was after.
Thanks to you and the rest of the Sam Hill staff for making it so easy and for accommodating when I asked that the band do the ceremony songs as well. You have been so helpful, the communication has been great and I will definitely send anyone needing bands your way. Heck, I'm looking for a reason to have a party just so I can!

Andrew,
Excellent group. Superb musicianship. Especially fine keyboardist. And Jeff reminded me more of Harry Connick than Frank. As a kid who worked his way through school playing in stage, dance and club bands, as well as small jazz groups, I’ve “been there, done that”. Certainly know the challenges. Jeff had fine rapport with his crowd, read its mood well and played all the right tunes. From the perspective of a septuagenarian former musician, you can’t go wrong with The Great American Songbook.
Bottom line, my wife and daughter were pleased, as were her husband’s family. Especially happy to have found a quality band on such short notice.
Please pass on our compliments to Jeff.

Andy,
We could not have been more pleased with the Jeff Decker Band. Please recommend them to any of our clients! I heard nothing but raves from every one the whole evening. Thank you again. My first recommendation to any bride requesting live music is to check first with Sam Hill. We appreciate the fact that despite our limitations you can still provide the client with excellent entertainment.

I just wanted to write you all to let you know how glad we were to have The Jeff Decker Band play at our wedding reception. We were very impressed with the skill of all four band members and the poise with which they directed the reception. They made our reception a constant, classy party, as our guests were able to talk with friends they hadn't seen in years or dance the night away. The Jeff Decker Band gave our wedding reception the touch of class and swing we wanted. I would suggest Jeff and his crew to anybody who was looking for a fun, elegant atmosphere at their reception. Jeff and his band are true professionals. Thanks again,

Jeff Decker was AWESOME!! He was SUPER EASY to work with, and had to deal with a bridal party of 11 and last minute additions of the 3 ushers! HE was FABULOUS. Worth every penny, and then some! I look forward to booking them in the future. Thanks so much for the excellent recommendation!

Thanks for your followup Andy! The reception was fantastic and we received
huge props on our choice of entertainment. I have been freely recommending
Sam Hill when folks ask how I found Jeff. The band was as good as we had
hoped. They did a great job, kept the mood going and even let me do a couple
of numbers with them. They were also flexible and stayed a little longer to
accomodate the party.
My fatherinlaw, who was quietly critical over the production and money
spent on our big day thinking most of my decisions were overkill, said that
I don't know how much you spent on them, but it was the best deal you got
for the whole day. My perspective is of course a little different than his,
but I too believe the investment paid off.
In the end, I would choose the Jeff Decker Band for another jazz/swing band,
and I would definitely call Sam Hill next time I am planning an event
requiring some help in the selection process. You helped us find and match
the right band with our event, and that's what its all about.
Thanks again for everything. You made the selection process a breeze.

Hi Andy,
thanks for your note, and for your help in booking Jeff's band...
We had a great time, and Sam Hill was great in helping me reach Jeff on the
day of the wedding when all of Richmond (and, as I hear it, most of
Charlottesville!) was without power and confirming that Jeff was going to be
able to make it. Jeff was REALLY helpful in coming early and setting up an
extra sound system for us in the garden where we were exchanging our vows,
since we couldn't find a party rental company who rented them out. In all
the hurricane and last minute madness, we hadn't been able to come up with a
song for our first dance, so fortunately Jeff was really flexible, ended up
'winging it' and really helped make our reception seem polished when behind
the scenes it was pretty disorganized!
His band was great, the music was beautiful and really made the evening fun
and romantic, and everybody loved them! (He even had the older generation
out dancing!)
Thanks to Jeff for doing such a great job and to you guys for helping us
find him; I'll be sure to pass along the word!
Best regards,
Christy

Hi Justin,
I'm just now back to Cville after a very long (11 night) honeymoon in St
Lucia. I wanted to let you know that Jeff Decker was absolutely amazing. I
mean _amazing_. I spoke with him a week or so before the day and indicated
that our friends and family are college professors, colleagues at UVa, and
that I'd really like the music to be classy and to have less ballads,
standards, and (as I think I put it awkwardly) cheezy, kitschy wedding
music. He said, ok, I think I hear what you're saying you want more
jazz. He played Miles Davis, Nat King Cole, Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie,
Charlie Parker, Gershwin, and people loved it! He really got people up and
moving. I honestly cannot tell you how many friends and family were like
Where did you find this guy? This is some of the best wedding music I've
ever heard! And it really was. Around 10:30 or so, we put on an ipod
playlist for more recent tunes and Jeff let us use his sound system and
speakers.
All in all, I could not have been happier with Jeff and his band. There were
many very cool things about the night, but Jeff is first class and he truly
made it a night to remember. I would highly, highly, highly recommend him
and his band.
Thanks again for all of your help at Sam Hill. You all have been terrific!

Andy,
Thank you so much for all of your help to ensure that the music portion of
our wedding was a success. It's tough to find reliable and honest vendors
in the wedding industry and we took great pride in knowing that we were in
good hands and that you and your team at Sam Hill were looking out for us.
You certainly did not let us down.
And of course, as to be expected, Jeff Decker and his band blew everyone
away. They were so much fun and provided such an elegant atmosphere at our
reception. Jeff was very accessible during the planning stages and also
very accommodating (I had a friend sing our firstdance song and under his
direction, it appeared as if she had been singing with the band for years).
He also listened to our requests and made sure that they provided exactly
the service we were looking for. Because we were having a smaller reception
and not a ton of dancing, we didn't want our band to be center stage, but
rather to provide background music for a sophisticated cocktail reception.
They did just that. They moved with the flow of the crowd, so when guests
liked a song and started dancing, they would continue with that mood.
However if most everyone was sitting back and talking, they would play a
little softer and more instrumental. A huge pet peeve of ours is to be in
the same room as a band at a party and not be able to hear yourself talk.
We shared this sentiment with Jeff and they followed through. They are such
a talented group and I am so very happy that we were able to book them for
our wedding. I could not have been more pleased with their performance.
Thanks again for everything! I'll be sure to pass your name along to other
Cville brides. Hope to see you at a game this fall!
Take care,
Catherine and Will Davis

Hi Andy,
The Jeff Decker Band was fabulous! Jeff and his band completely exceeded
our expectations. When we started our planning process, many people
stressed the importance of good music. One friend said, have your wedding
in a hut if you have to, but get a good band!. Jeff was even able to
prepare two special songs for us that were out of his typical genre of
music. His interpretation of the songs was fantastic and created a memory
we'll always have. Everyone commented on how great the music was. Even
though we had a small wedding with all age ranges in attendance, the music
appealed to everyone.
Jeff was a pleasure to work with and I would tell anyone who is planning a

Dear Andy,

Thanks so much for your email. Sam Hill Bands was by far one of the easiest and most reliable vendors that I worked with. I appreciate all that you did to make my wedding come off as beautifully as it did.

Jeff Decker and his band were fantastic. When things got crazy I didn't have to flag him down but he actually took the time to call me and get all the information he needed. His band learned two new songs out of their genre, and allowed our friend to sing along with them, which was incredibly flexible and made my day even more special. We absolutely loved the music, and my husband (who is a musician himself) went on for days about how talented the group was.

The next time we or one of our frinends is planning a big event, I'll know exactly where to go for quality music and professionalism.
Thanks again,
