Here is what our clients have to say:

Our wedding with the Hornettes, October 5th 2013.

We had never heard the Hornettes before the night of our wedding. They were hired by my brother who is also a musician in Ottawa and he assured me they wouldn’t disappoint.

Even with high expectations they blew us away! The band was so good that our guests couldn’t help but get on the dance floor for their soundcheck! This meant that our first dance was actually the 10th dance but that’s just details.

Our friends and family were on the dance floor until they turned the lights on and the venue kicked us out.

Do yourself a favor, skip the Dj and hire this band. The music makes the party, and these guys know how to party!

The Hornettes were the best possible band to have play at our wedding. Killer vocals backed by a fantastic band, the Hornettes bring hard hitting rock and roll, class, style and horns!

Their high energy gets people on their feet and dancing all night long. Would hire them again in a heartbeat and wish they played every wedding I was invited to.

Nothing comes close to the experience and energy of having a live band for your wedding, and The Hornettes should be your only choice!

The party at our wedding would not have been the success it was without the outstanding musicianship and presence that The Hornettes bring to the dance floor. From R&B standards to modern hits, this band will get everyone dancing late into the night.

We couldn’t have asked to work with a more professional and talented band, and recommended them to anyone looking for the live-band experience at their wedding.
