Hear what previous clients have to say about us...


I wanted to say thank again for creating the best night ever! People keep sending me notes saying our wedding had the most spirit of any wedding they'd ever attended and this is in great part thanks to you guys! You had everyone rocking our Hora for an impossible amount of time and did an amazing job of keeping the fun happening :) And we had many people come up to us and tell us "wow what a great band!" Thank you guys so much, best night ever!

-Anya & Nate Fay(wedding)

“Dear Daniel, Thank YOU for an incredible time! You were all so wonderful -- both
musically and personally. Everyone had a fantastic time!...We loved working with you and your band. You will be in our good memories forever.”

-Cheryl Rothenberg & family, Monroe, CT (bat mitzvah)


"Thank you for a fantastic evening."

-Geracht Myers family, Hoboken, NJ


"The Chai Notes turned our Bar Mitzvah into a fantastic simcha! Dan and the band are so talented and versatile. The clarinet playing was beautiful. Laura, the vocalist was lovely and lively. They had my son and his friends dancing and playing the whole time. From music, to hoola hoops, to magic, and even scarf juggling, they kept the young and the not-so young involved and happy. And, they were a pleasure to work with during the hectic time leading up to the Bar Mitzvah. I heartily recommend The Chai Notes!"

-The Silverstones, Blauvelt, NY (bar mitzvah)



"These guys are the best! I am their biggest fan and, if I could, would even follow them around from show to show, wedding to wedding, bar mitzvah to batmitzvah...just to see them play! They turned our party into a real simcha! And it was a complete success thanks to the Chai Notes. Thanks Dan and Laura!"

-The Abramsons, Yorktown Heights, NY (wedding)



“You do good work. I recommend you to anyone, at any time."

-Cynthia Curtis, Bayside, NY (90th Bday Celebration)



“The Chai Notes played for both my daughters' bat mitzvot and really made their parties something special. Both the kids and the adults enjoyed their music and entertainment thoroughly. We were delighted they were with us to celebrate these important simchot.”

-Paula Lerner, Lerner/Dunlap family, Belmont MA (batmitzvahs)


"We are so glad to have discovered the The Chai Notes. These are young energetic musicians/performers who truly love what they do. They play great music, and they also did a great job with the DJ'ing. Our wedding didn't seem like just another "gig" to them. The band leader, Dan (who himself recently married, and to our lovely vocalist Laura) was very helpful to us throughout the planning process the months before. The entire celebration turned out truly outstanding, from ceremony to reception. We received many many compliments on the band, and we ended up giving their number out to many of our friends..."

-The Levines, NYC (wedding)

"I've been telling Dan over and over now, he should quit his day job! He is too good of a musician, and his band is remarkable! If I were his boss at work, I'd fire him right now. He was born to play for simchas :)"

-P. Abbitt & Shands fam (private event)



"These guys know how to make a party one to remember!"

-B & J Rosenthal (wedding)



"Is there anything these guys can't do??? They rock, they swing, they dance, they do shtick, they juggle, they do magic, they DJ....One highlight of our party was the juggling show, followed by a mass scarf lesson. Everyone was juggling and colorful scarves flying everywhere...great music, and everyone had a great time...an incredible party. Thank you Dan and thank you Chai Notes Band!"

Thank you so much for helping us make our celebration so wonderful. Feedback from family and friends has been so happy with the music. The whole event was so special. Thanks for being a part of it!

Thank you so much. We did indeed have a wonderful time, and pass on compliments from our guests, both for the quality of the musicians and for a volume level that allowed conversation among family members who don't see each other so often.

S. Waters, NJ (batmitzvah)

Just want to thank you for an amazing musical Bris. You and your othermusicians were great. Your wife has a beautiful voice too. Like you said, I would get so much more for my money than I could have imagined. I am sure you will get future gigs from this. Even the moyal said that in his entire career he never saw anything like it.

-H. Koven, Coral Gables, FL (bris)


Thank you for doing a great job. You received favorable reviews from all our guests.

-H. & R. Goldmann, Heathrow, FL(wedding)


Thank you for making our event truly special. The band really made the party. Thank you again.

J. & T Segal, Palm Beach Gardens, FL (bar mitzvah)

I am just now barely starting to come down from the high of the weekend. I think back on the day and just smile over and over again because everything was so wonderful. The Chai Notes were an integral part of making our family's simcha so special. You and the others were so flexible and so easy to work with, but more importantly, everyone loved your music and said it was the music that really made the Kiddush feel unique. My dream was to dance the Hora with my son and I got that dream. Thank you.

S. Levine, West Palm Beach, (bar mitzvah)

Thanks for helping us to ring in our 13th year. You did an incredible job and the guests were so pleased. I'll be sure to get your website onto ours so that people know where to turn for great music.

Michelle Dreiblatt, Director, New Jersey Jewish Film Festival (event)


The music was wonderful and the people in the quartet were very talented and lovely- and of course the music was fabulous.

P. Shampan (double engagement party), Roslyn, N.Y.

I wanted to thank you and the band. Rebecca was absolutely Happy.... I was the one who pushed the Klezmer Band and she wanted a DJ then she got interested in having a band and she got both!!!!! You really were excellent an excellent MC and band. The smoothness of the party the Havdalah and the candle light was excellent. It's the little things that ...albeit unnoticed that make the event spectacular. Her friends all said it was the BEST of the B'nai Mitzvah of the year :-)

A. Howard, (batmizvah), Worchester, MA
