Hello Fernando,
Thank you very much for your music and performance at our event last week at Peller Estates Winery. I was very surprised at how well your quartet performed, it is difficult sometimes to tell from just Youtube videos but it was much better than I expected. Everyone was very impressed with your band and I had lots of comments. I will highly recommend the quartet to everyone.
With many thanks.... my very best regards to you and the band!

Bat Mitzvah Celebration at The Park Hyatt Hotel Toronto. August 19, 2012
Fernando, your music was just perfect! I especially enjoyed the singing... I don't remember that from the last time. Your friend has a beautiful voice. Unfortunately I am finished with bar/bat mitzvah celebrations for my children, but your name will be kept at the top of my list for the future, and of course for any referrals.
Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Wedding February 19, 2011, at The Arts & Letters Club, Toronto, On.
Dear Fernando,
Thank you very much for your kind note and especially for the band's performance at our wedding. Your band sounded terrific and our guests had a great time dancing to your tunes. The music during dinner was also perfect, providing a great atmosphere for us and our family and friends. Your band was also extremely professional, showing up at the appointed times and being flexible enough to adjust your set-up to accommodate the room on short notice. We would absolutely use your band again for future events and will recommend you to our friends!
Thanks again for your hard work and hopefully we'll have an opportunity to hear you again in the future.

Wedding July 25, 2010 at The Royal Ashburn Golf Club, Pickering, On.
They played our 50 person wedding last night and were wonderful. It's tough to get a small group up and enjoying themselves, but they had everyone on their feet dancing through the night - people couldn't resist. The jazz undertones for the cocktail hour and dinner, upbeat rock and ballads for dancing - and just overall willingness to work with us made things just great. What a great day - everyone loved them and their sound. You will not go wrong hiring Fernando and his group to cover your entire wedding / event. Thank you for helping to make it such a wonderful day.
Dave and Linea.

Wedding of August 16, 2008 at The Liberty Grand, Toronto, On.
Wow, the Tavares Jazz Trio was outstanding. We hired them for our daughter's wedding reception at the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex and they were everything we hoped they would be. We asked them if they could include a female jazz singer to the trio, and they added Liz who was just amazing. All of our guests commented on how they enjoyed the music. Fernando and his musicians are very talented. I hope we get the chance to meet up with them again sometime! Thanks so very very much!
