  • Lovett Hall, Wedding Reception | "Gary and his orchestra provided an elegant & classic feel for a perfect wedding day! Prompt communication and extremely accomodating throughout all the palnning, it was like a page right out of The Great Gatsby! Thank you for everything! Our 'first dance' song was awesome!!!" -Samantha & Dane

  • Wedding Reception | "Gary, we wanted to thank the band for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. We felt your style and sophistication was exactly what we were looking for. The vocalists did an outstanding job with our first dance song and other special requests. We received many compliments from our guests about your performance. Even though that did not dance commented that they really enjoyed your music.
    We also wanted to give a big thanks to Nicholas (Elysium) for doing a fabulous job with the announcements. Last but not least, the overall sound of instruments was just perfect. We appreciate your professionalism and helping to make our wedding spectacular."

  • "Thanks again and we hope to see you again some time soon at one of your shows." -Jeff & Kara Holda

  • Wedding Reception | "I can't begin to tell you how many compliments we received on the music and how much people enjoyed themselves! The quartet was the absolute PERFECT background to a delightful dinner. And the whole orchestra was just amazing. Being 300 miles away, and having booked you on reputation and referral alone, I have to say, we didn't only ‘do good’, we ‘did excellent’! I think one guest put it best..’Everyone listened, everyone enjoyed, even if they didn't dance. It was perfect!’”-Bride

  • Wedding Ceremony and Reception | "An incredible group of entertainers that made our special day stand out in all our guests memories. I was amazed at how many people made a point of saying: ‘What a great band! Where did you find them?’ Thank you for doing an excellent job! I did not hear the quartet except for two songs, but all the guests and family were impressed." -Cindy & Dave

  • Wedding Reception | "GG Orchestra elevated a very nice wedding reception to the absolute best wedding reception we've ever attended. Being the bride and groom, we might be biased, but dozens of our guests have made special effort to tell us the same. Every interaction with the band from initial contact, to planning, to the event was beyond completely professional. They even put forth extra effort to add a special song to their repertoire just for us. Hiring GG Orchestra was the best addition to our special day. GG Orchestra's fee was also much less than we would have guessed, and nothing could have added more class per dollar. Why spend a bunch of money on a forgettable, carbon-copy DJ, when you can spend a little more on GG Orchestra, a great band that plays great music that everyone will enjoy, remember, and talk about for years?"

  • Wedding Ceremony and Reception | "We wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding. You set up such an elegant, timeless & romantic tone for our reception. The dance floor was filled throughout the night with guests of all ages and several people have told us that they loved the music and were sad when it ended! We could not have found a more perfect band. We wish we could do it all over again – this time, we would probably serve fewer courses for dinner so we could spend more time dancing!"

  • Governor's Gala Reception | “Your band did a great job at the Governor's Gala, you guys sounded WONDERFUL."

  • Lovett Hall, The Henry Ford | "It doesn’t get any better than when guests are inspired to dance the night away! Gary’s big band and quintet sounded incredible and set the perfect tone to kick off our holiday celebration at The Henry Ford. We have used them two years in a row because they are so well-received. Gary’s professionalism and friendliness is a benchmark in the industry.”

  • 2015 Spring Fling - Families Against Narcotics | "Dear Gary, Families Against Narcotics wants to thank you so much for the fantastic job the GQ Jazz Ensemble did at our Spring Fling on May 7, 2015. This was our second Spring Fling, and you & your band helped to make it a great success! We had all kinds of great compliments on the music and the professionalism of your band. We were looking for sophistication, and you delivered!"
    -Families Against Narcotics, Lapeer Chapter

  • 2015 Commodores Ball - Clinton River Boat Club | "Just wanted to drop you a quick note about the performance you and the orchestra provided for us at the DYC last Saturday night. The evening was a great success and the musical entertainment was the focal point of the event! The DYC did a great job as always with the food, service and setup, but we received more compliments on the music provided by you folks than all of the other aspects of the Commodores Ball combined! Comments about the great sound, vocal styling and arrangements along with the professional appearance of the stage and performers were repeated to us over and over again. Everyone asked us how we knew about you and commented they would recommend you and the orchestra for future events.
    As you know, setting up an event such as this takes a lot of time and planning, and you couldn’t have been more accommodating and professional to work with. From the contract, to set up, performance and breakdown, it was as seamless as could be. Thanks again!"
    -Gary Kirrkamm, Commodore - Clinton River Boat Club

  • 90th Anniversary Event - Fox Hills Country Club | “I have always believed that when an organization is hosting a special event, hire the best entertainment available. You want your attendees to have a great time, and create a wonderful memory in the process! The Gary Greenfelder Orchestra and GQ Jazz Ensemble exceeded all of my expectations! The age of our guests spanned from the 20 somethings, to the 80 somethings. We needed the entertainers to deliver a high quality, diverse, and of most importance... enjoyable music experience! Gary's groups achieved all of this and much more! They are...simply the best"
    - Lindsay W. Chalmers, Vice President of Goodwill Industries

  • Detroit Yacht Club | “Just can't tell you how much everyone enjoyed your group. All the guys in the group are so nice, and Amy (lead Alto Saxophone) is a real show-stopper--can she play!! Thanks again for performing at our Club."
