Corporate Christmas Party at Bravi Restaurant in Toronto, ON
December 17, 2016
We've had The Tavares Band at at least 5 different corporate events and each time they were fantastic!!! They are always a pleasure to work with and have always been accommodating of our needs. The female lead vocalist (I apologize, but I forget her name) has an incredible voice. Her version of "Rolling in the Deep" is better than Adele's!! In my opinion, you really can't go wrong with having these guys play at your next personal/corporate event. Their professionalism always made my job easy. Thank you Tavares Band!!!!

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.

Dear Fernando,
Thank you very much for playing so beautifully at my daughter's wedding. You (and your quartet) make beautiful music! If someone wants a reference or a testimonial about your ensemble please direct them my way. You played a great part in the success of the day.
Gratefully yours,

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!

The Tavares Trio was great - perfect for my corporate event! They were very accommodating when making arrangements for the event and very professional. The music was elegant and created a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere for the cocktail party. I would definitely recommend them for future functions.
