About the Band

Bandleaders Glenn Carvin (keyboards) and Kenny Faison (sax) have assembled one of the most talented and versatile party bands on the scene today with a unit that stacks up favorably against any other national act. 5 amazing vocalists on the front line, 3 power packed horns and one of the tightest rhythm sections anywhere round out the line up. Members have performed all over the world with major recording artists including Aretha Franklin, Peabo Bryson, and most recently Justin Bieber, and have also appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, and Dancing With The Stars.

Reviews

I truly believe that I just heard the perfect corporate band. I rarely want to stay to the end of a dinner event because I am usually the first person in the ballroom that day. I have to admit I tried to leave but I kept getting pulled back in. Just like the guests that never left the dance floor. 
Larry Walker,General Manager at Meeting Dynamics, Inc.
Bandleader Glenn Carvin:“We are honored and humbled when we hear that kind of praise, but the reality is that the entertainment buyer has a lot of choices. The market is extremely competitive and filled with bands that have either been around much longer, or new to the market and testing out the latest fad or gimmick in an attempt to be unique in a very crowded field - that by it’s nature can be very confusing and all bands start to look and sound alike. We’re not much into gimmickry though. We just want to go out and kill it every time we hit the stage. Great marketing has it’s place, but in the long run, word of mouth trumps it every time.”

 

Hey Glenn! This is Lauren Smith with It Takes Two Events. Y'all did an fantastic job this past weekend, I was blown away by the talent!

Hi Glenn,
Between the Ravens game yesterday and packing for the honeymoon today, I haven't had time to write my formal thank you notes like I had hoped, but I couldn't leave for my honeymoon without sending a quick email to say THANK YOU for making our wedding reception the most fun I have ever had dancing the night away. I loved the band's rendition of "Wild Horses" for our first dance and one of my favorite moments of the night was when "All I Want For Christmas Is You" played right after our cake cutting so I really appreciate you having the band learn both songs. I also appreciate you shifting gears later in the evening to play some of the fast songs from the list that we had sent of our favorite songs. I don't think I left the dance floor for more than ten minutes all evening because it was just too fun to be anywhere else! We have received SO many compliments on the band and comments like "best band I've ever seen" and "party of the year with the best band ever" so I am confident you will be getting more requests and bookings for Baltimore events in the future!
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!

Glenn, you guys were INCREDIBLE. I have had so many people tell me you were the best band they've ever seen. I have never seen wedding guests dance as long and hard as they did, but I am sure you are used to it!! You guys provided a non-stop party. Thank you again for letting Ben perform with you - that was such a special surprise. I hope to see you at another wedding from our group - I am sure you will be getting some business back in Tampa after that performance. I am going to write you guys a review on wedding wire, and please send me any other sites that you would like us to post a review.
Thanks again,

Dear Glenn,
Amazing! No other words to describe the Atlanta Showstoppers performance at Megan and Chase's wedding reception! They were more fabulous than we could have ever imagined!!

Megan had nothing but kind words to describe each time she talked to you or emailed you in regards to the band and what to expect. This was perfect night in which we will forever cherish. Thank you for helping to make memories that will last a lifetime for Megan and Chase!

Good morning, Glenn! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to email you -- I've been out of town twice since the wedding and I keep waiting until I have time to compose a fabulous thank you to tell you how much we appreciate all you and Atlanta Showstoppers did to make Emily and Hank's wedding a huge success! I can't tell you how much fun we at the wedding and your band is one of the main reasons we did! The music was fabulous from the very first song until the last! Everyone had such a great time and I can't believe they got me on stage again... but who can resist Donna Summer?! You all were so gracious to let us and all our guests take over the stage and be participants rather than just spectators! You were so professional and I love that we got to visit several times before the reception -- you were able to get a feel for what music we liked and how we wanted the event to transpire! And the band executed our wishes to perfection!!! What a fun night! I have a feeling you will be in Dallas sooner than later -- because EVERYONE wanted to know who you were and where you were from! I can't wait to see your pics and videos! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for making our special family event so wonderful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Alex and I hardly left the dance floor which is exactly what we wanted – you made the night! We cannot thank you enough for providing so much fun for us and for all of our family and friends. Your ears should be burning as people have been raving in Memphis for 2 solid weeks!

On behalf of both Lee and I, thank you and the Showstoppers SO MUCH for such a great night on Aug 24th. We really could not have had more fun and you guys were the absolute hit of the wedding. Lee and I are so grateful that you guys would come all the way to Memphis and then put on such a great show. You got the party started and you never stopped – it was awesome. I hope this is the first of many trips you guys are able to make to Memphis after this wedding. Based on the way everyone was partying, I’d say it’s a safe bet you will be there many times in the future. Also – please tell me you have some video of us onstage, and especially of my singing. I saw you in the corner with some video going. If you have it, we would love to have a copy. Thanks again so much for helping make our day so special. And Chris – thanks so much for all of your help in getting this arranged. Trust me when I say you missed one hell of a night. Many thanks,

Glenn……I could not let another day pass by without thanking you and The Showstoppers for absolutely making my daughter's wedding reception so perfect! I had never seen your band live and selected you purely on the advice of a close friend who was a big fan. We weren't disappointed!!! From your arrival at the Memphis Country Club, through the setup, the performance, and breakdown of the equipment……….it was all done was so professionally. I understood it was your first time to perform in Memphis, and when the band played "Walking in Memphis" everyone went wild. Hope to see you in our part of the world again.

From the first time you responded to my request for information about the Atlanta Showstoppers, up through all of your correspondence with Beth and Joe,and your interactions with me on the day of the wedding, before, during and after the Showstoppers' performance, you were an absolute pleasure to work with. And, perhaps most importantly, the band's performance was truly OUTSTANDING! Beth and Joe, and Linda and I were just thrilled with the high energy, professional performance of the group, and our sentiments were echoed by almost every guest who spoke to us after the event. We could not have asked for a better performance. You can be sure that if others ask us our advice about choosing a band for a special event, the Atlanta Showstoppers will be the group we recommend. Please share our thanks with the entire group and, once again, thank you for being so gracious and so easy to work with. We really appreciate all of your efforts. Sincerely,

Hi Glenn, Just wanted to thank all of the Atlanta Showstoppers for an unforgettable night for our daughter and son in law's wedding reception at Charlotte Country club Sept 29, 2012. From the very first song our guests were on the dance floor for three straight hours...Your musicians are the best I have ever heard..all songs sounding better than the original artist, unbelievable talent!! We have been getting raves all week and cannot thank you enough for agreeing to play for the reception! I will always be telling people looking for a band (just did a couple of days ago to a complete stranger who's brother is getting married next October), that you guys are the best of the best..as one of our guest's said on their way out last weekend "whatever you paid for that band, they are worth twice as much'!!!! I have to agree! Thanks so much again Glenn!

Glenn I have just returned to Atlanta after a wonderful weekend. The wedding was a rousing success thanks to you and your fabulous musicians. I cannot tell you how much fun everyone had, how many of my friends who rarely dance were on the dance floor, and most importantly, how much fun the bride and groom had celebrating with their friends. Sarah is by nature a reserved and calm individual, and yet, she felt so comfortable and happy that she was dancing the night away on stage with you and showing a side of herself that I rarely see. It was so heartwarming!! The night turned out to be just perfect, and we owe you (and Betts Love who recommended you), the most gratitude. We will continue to sing your praises as will everyone who was there on such a special evening. Thank you, thank you for being part of our wedding celebration. Diane Wilson

As Father of the Bride, let me say there are 2 important things you must do when planning a wedding: 1) hire Lindsay Pitt as Wedding Planner And 2) hire the Atlanta Showstoppers as your band! Both are simply the best! Thanks to both of you...you made it a very special night! Neal Freeman

Glenn, We are on the road to recovery but not there yet. We got home last night, as we had to handle a number of things at Sarah's apartment Sunday and Monday. You guys were outstanding Saturday night. From the very start people were asking me "What band is this and where did you find them?" (the credit for that goes to Sarah). Then once Sarah did her dances with Matt and me, and folks were able to take to the dance floor, the comments and questions even increased. I recall toward the end one guy in his 30s grabbed me and said, "I've been to probably a hundred weddings and without a doubt this is the best band at any of them it's not even close." A big indicator is how many people were still there (and dancing) at the very end. Another indicator is this: after everyone had left, Laura and I went out to my car and it was full of gifts. We were really tired but didn't feel comfortable leaving all of those gifts in the car overnight so we went to Sarah's apartment and unloaded the car. We finally got back to the Hyatt around 1:00 and as we got to the lobby the bar was packed, and we saw it was mostly folks from the reception. Our son Daniel told us later that people didn't want the evening to end and basically overran the bar which required the hotel to go find extra bartenders to handle everything. Daniel said there were still around 100 people there at 1:45 when the hotel closed it down for the night. I can assure you that the people didn't head to that bar because the supply of beverages was limited at the reception. It was because they were all still so pumped from the reception and you guys were a key component of that. The way your band interacted with the crowd was great and it made the evening so much fun for everyone. We also appreciate how you stayed a little longer than normal and took care of all of the special requests, including playing "Mrs. Robinson" for the finale. We will definitely spread the word as we see opportunities to do that, both in Charlotte and elsewhere. In fact, one of my Raleigh partners asked me today for some links to your info. I realize that assuming the price is the same, your favorite venues would be in Atlanta but the Carolinas are probably your second choice because of proximity and the prospects of having audiences like we had Saturday night who really appreciate what you do. I will be glad to serve as a reference for you so if someone asks for one, feel free to have them call me (at work is fine). I will tell my assistant to be on the lookout for people periodically calling about the Atlanta Showstoppers. Please tell the rest of the Showstoppers how much everyone loved the evening and thank them for us. Take care. Larry Lawrence J. Scott

Steve, I would say, without a doubt, they are the finest dance party band I have ever heard. We had so much fun and they were extremely professional.

Glenn, Simply put, you guys exceeded all expectations. Ashley and I couldn't have had a more professional, talented, crisp and energetic band than you guys. Every. Single. Person. I spoke with during and after the event raved about you. Even my more musically snobbish friends could not believe how amazing you guys were. Thanks so much for providing the energy and excitement we needed to make the night truly amazing. Additionally, our friends pleaded for an encore and you guys delivered. And, in attending many weddings recently, I can honestly say I have never seen a wedding band encore. That shows you how much fun we were having! I also received a pretty detailed email from one of my groomsmen that does a much better job that I in expressing our overall impression, therefore I'll pass that along as well see below. Thanks again and hopefully we'll get to see you again sometime soon! Jason Meyer Groom

"Jason, what can I say about the Atlanta Showstoppers that hasn't already been stated in Rolling Stone about the Temptations, Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye or any other bigtime Motown outfit? Because that is who this group perfectly emulated, with each band member having a unique skillset that complemented the others. From the moment the Showstoppers began playing at your wedding, and for the next 3 plus hours, the band delivered an inspired, massively fun, and expertlyperformed show. They exceeded all expectations and thoroughly pleased everyone. And when I say “everyone,” I mean a group that spanned demographics of all ages, backgrounds, and musical interests. You could tell that everyone felt completely comfortable to cut loose, dance to their hearts content and join in on the fun. The consistent energy level that the band provided during the entire show was something you do not see normally at weddings, and it made the reception forever memorable. The band knew how to aptly cater to the audience and constantly was interacting and engaging with the crowd, which only added to the excitement. They were truly topnotch and I am sure you agree with me that you should have them at any other event, small or large, that you want your guests to have the time of their lives at. I seriously can’t believe how much fun I had, and the amount of fun I had was only over shadowed by the amount of perspiration I had in my shirt at the end of the night from my three straight hours of dancing. Unbelievable." Groomsman

Dear Glenn, Marianne and I are forever grateful to you and each one of your band members for the superb performance you gave Saturday evening for Ashley and Jason and the wedding guests in Charlotte. It is difficult to know where to begin with the praise. We received countless compliments from those in attendance on the music, your band's energy and its stage presence and the fun and joyfulness The Atlanta Showstoppers created. For me the beginning was the fantastic job everyone did with my request for Power of Love / Love Power by Luther Vandross, a beautiful song which has much meaning and history for me and my daughter. You replicated a complex arrangement to a T and you did this in short order. From the rhythm (awesome) and the vocals (awesome), to the phrasing, to the keyboard work and then the beautiful gospel background, you did us proud. I thank you ! The Showstoppers energy and endurance was unbelievable. You had everyone dancing and enjoying from minute one for three straight hours. Hearing about it is one thing, seeing it is another, and being a part of it, still another. You put us on higher ground. Further proof is this the staff at the venue dropped their work, came out from closed doors, wanting to hear you, saying "this is the best band ever at this club." Your band members were courteous and professional very impressive. You had young and old participating in the fun, and yet you kept a pretty raucous crowd under control that too was impressive. Thank you also for performing Ashley and Jason's requests. There were many young talented persons in attendance as part of the crowd, and no doubt, they will remember the Atlanta Showstoppers for many years to come. You will see them again, as you will Marianne and myself. It was a night to remember and we thank you all. Sincerely,

Not only were Jaimie and Andrew totally impressed I have had more emails, texts, and phone calls from everyone about how amazing the band was. When you opened up with Earth, Wind and Fire one of the guys at the reception hadn’t seen you yet he only heard you from another room and told everyone around him “Only Milton and Cara would get Earth, Wind, and Fire for the reception!” he came into the area where you were and never left the dance floorthe thing is he NEVER dances! Andrew told me yesterday even my dad danced and he doesn’t dance either. Fun, fun, fun!!! When we get the video and pictures we will send you some of the band. I know this won’t be the last time we see you! If you ever need references please feel free to have them contact usonce they speak with us they will be sold!

I got married last Saturday in Charlotte, NC and the Atlanta Showstoppers played at our reception. The band's performance was incredible, and they had the dance floor packed all night. The band was the talk of the evening...and brunch the next morning. If I ever need a band again (and when my sisters get married) there is only one name that we will consider...the Atlanta Showstoppers. Thanks to Glenn and the rest of the band for an great night.

Glenn, THANK YOU again for performing at our wedding reception at Charlotte Country Club last weekend. Finding the party band was one of my few assigned wedding tasks and the one I took most seriously, as I firmly believe the band can make or break the reception. As you know, the Atlanta Showstoppers came very highly recommended so we had high expectations...and the band absolutely shattered our expectations. The energy, versatility, and overall quality of the band were all incredible, and the dance floor was packed all night long. As such, the band was the talk of the reception...and the farewell brunch on Sunday. Literally, guests ranging from 20 years old to 90 years old all had great things to say about the Atlanta Showstoppers. There were also a few newlyengaged couples at the reception, and we hope they use you at their weddings so we can see you again soon! Ryan J. Jack

Dear Glenn and Kenny! I cannot even begin to tell you ALL the incredible glowing compliments your band received from our guests the majority saying you guys were undoubtedly the BEST SHOWBAND they had ever seen and believe me, our guests have seen plenty ! The energy apparently started the MINUTE the doors to the Ballroom were open and though we were not able to be in the room at that time, my understanding is that dancing started almost immediately!!!!! If it had not been interrupted by the usual wedding fodder, of the First Dance, toasts, and then the sit down dinner, we truly believe the dance floor would have remained packed for 5 hours!!!! ALL 250 guests were on the dance floor at one time or another and to this day, we are STILL receiving amazing emails, posts and calls about our wedding celebration being the BEST EVER!!!! Though we do know the setting at the Ponte Vedra Club in Florida, the decor (through Unforgettable Events), the dinner, etc., were absolutely unequivocally top notch, the ATLANTA SHOWSTOPPERS in our opinion absolutely made the evening complete and truly unforgettable! The fact that you all played straight through the evening without a break, kept the energy in the room so high and exciting (we even asked to have you play an additional half hour!)....people we know who normally wouldn't dance MUCH, were on the dance floor practically all the time! The voices of your singers were fabulous many times sounding better than some of the Original artists, in our opinion! The interaction with our guests made it truly fun and a memorable experience for all! Thank you for such a great evening and such memorable talent! We may be calling you to do a party in Asheville sometime!!!!!!!! Best regards,

Dear Glenn: We are the ones that should be writing you to thank you and the Showstoppers for the outstanding entertainment that you provided for us on Saturday evening. I could go on for paragraphs about how good the music was and how many people stayed until the end, dancing with such abandon that their creaky bones could hardly get out of bed the next day. But I also am so pleased with how easy you were to work with, and how responsive you were to every suggestion about timeline, especially during the evening when dinner service was delayed, and the timeline had to be modified. The Ball Chair for next year was in attendance, and I'm sure that she took note of all of the above. You were fabulous, and we thank the Shackelfords as well as the Entertainment Committee for their selection of the Atlanta Showstoppers as our entertainment! I hope that you get many engagements as a result of Saturday evening's performance! Please relay our thanks to all the talented band members! All the best,

Hey Glenn! You all really did a fabulous job. You got the timing just right. I heard from someone this morning that they loved how they could talk over dinner. That was important. That same person also said they regretted that they had to leave as they had a prearranged limo. They wanted to stay and dance. Have never seen this crowd dance so much. We also had a crowd that stayed later and danced longer. I think you are magic. Thank you so much for making us look good and providing great entertainment. I would gladly go to any party where you are entertaining. Please tell all the band how much we enjoyed them. Best

Glenn Your show was perfect as it has been in the past three years. As I have said in the past, the Showstoppers did a great job of "playing to the crowd" and keeping all ages entertained. The additional members to the band that you had for our event made it even better than in years past and made it seem fresh. I will be talking to the chairman of next year's ball in February to start planning for next year so I will let you know early 2012 to see your availability. We are most likely looking at December 21st for next year's ball if you want to pencil us in. John Simpson (December 17, 2011)

Charleston Debutante' Ball

Not normally one to do this, I have to rave about the best party band I've ever heard. At a recent social event, the Atlanta Showstoppers took the stage with the following personnel: several vocalists (men and women, all talented and loaded with stage savvy), a bassist, a guitarist, a percussionist, a keyboardist and three horns. They unleashed a very impressive song list that most bands don't even attempt to play because they're either too difficult musically or too demanding vocally. In fact, 90 percent of what they played I'd never before heard performed live. Not only did the Showstoppers have a go at some very challenging arrangements, but they nailed them. Numbers early in the set included "It's a Shame" (The Spinners, impossible vocals), "The Best of My Love" (The Emotions, ditto), "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is" (Chicago, soaring brass, demanding tempo changes). Selections got a lot more contemporary as the evening progressed...if you really need to rev things up, this would be the group to do it. Get your wallet out though, because you'll pay for what you get. Dr. Edward Gilbreth

Ted, They were FANTASTIC! Everyone was talking about them all weekend long. They made our party! I have had two parents call to get their name. I was so impressed with their music, their act, their professionalism and the ease of dealing with them. Glenn Carvin from the band called several weeks ago to introduce himself and to be sure they knew what we expected of them. Since they had never played the venue, he stopped by and met with Grand Central several weeks ago. That really impressed me and put me at ease. He called to discuss costumes, music and how to "utilize" them for a fun evening. Everything was a total success! They played nonstop from 9:00 until 12:15 and everyone danced nonstop until 12:15. I know some people never left the dance floor. They were exactly what we wanted. Thank you for everything. I would recommend them to anyone who asks. They are at the top of my list for a true party band! Thank you for all of your help!

I rarely want to stay to the end of a dinner event because I am usually the first person in the ballroom that day. I have to admit I tried to leave but I kept getting pulled back in.

Larry Atlanta Showstoppers played for us for the third time in the last 5 months. I can honestly say that I think this is the nicest and most talented band I have used. They had the dance floor full the entire night from the first dance to the last. The crowd was begging for more! They are brilliant with their playlist, they are timely, they are nice, and they do everything and more that I ask of them. At one point during the band's break, Glenn Carvin helped me hand out blankets to guests that were cold! Who does this? Well the Atlanta Showstoppers do it all! The Hagans and every guest will testify to the amazing energy and fun they created. I will always lead with Atlanta Showstoppers when I propose a band for any function they go above and beyond. Do you know that Glenn contacts my clients when they sign the contract to thank them? Do you know that he actually looks at timelines and suggests things that will go better for the event even if it means they miss a break or play a little longer? This band is first rate! I love them!

Hi Ted This email is a follow up to my phone call in praise of the Atlanta Showstoppers. Prewedding Glenn was a dream to work with, both for the bride and wedding planner. The band arrived in plenty of time to set up and that was very important since the wedding was at home. Each member of the band was attractive and well groomedvery professional. One guest commented on the sequined dresses set against the backdrop of twinkling city lights....magical. Most importantly they had a fabulous sound. For three straight hours the dance floor was packed. I had numerous guests ask who the band was and afterwards some emailed to get their name. The Showstoppers also were wonderful to allow my children to get up on stage and dance. Guests enjoyed the family act. I am grateful to the band for being so flexible. The ending was great. I can not sing their praises enough. The next day it was nice to see that they had left their band room neat and clean. A five star band!!!! Very classy!!!! A happy client, Kitty Caldwell

At one point, I even felt like a rock star up on stage. Plus I loved how all my siblings, husband, and even mother could not resist the limelight. You all literally made the evening. The floor was constantly overflowing with smiling faces and energetic bodies moving to the rhythm. Thank you for playing our song, the “Soulful Strut.” Having that as our first dance actually meant so much to us, we still talk about it. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Thank you for the wonderful energy you brought to an unforgettable night!!! All the best,

Showstoppers!! Ross and I want to thank you for making the trip to Boston for our wedding. YOU WERE SENSATIONAL. We knew that you were fabulous but you literally surpassed our highest expectations and kept the dance floor PACKED all night long. The fact that our guests were chanting "one more song" at the end of the night says it all. Our family and friends cannot stop talking about our wedding and we know it's thanks to the Showstoppers!! We hope to see you again soon in Boston! All the best, Christie & Ross Stern (October 1, 2011)

Thank you SO much for making the trip to Boston, we were absolutely honoured to share this special day with such a classy group of people to say nothing of incredible singers/performers!!! We would just love to go see you every weekend!!! I sent many of the cards that you gave me with our Director of Catering at The Four Seasons!

Hi Glenn I just want to thank you and your band for the fabulous job you did playing at my daughter's wedding this past weekend. We all appreciate how you learned Higher and Higher and Africa especially for the party and also what careful attention you gave to the list of songs we told you we all liked in choosing your play list for this occasion. The first thing almost everyone said to me during the reception was "Who is the band? They are incredible! That is the best band I have ever heard!" I know you get these comments all the time, but I did want you to know how much our guests enjoyed your music and your energy. Also, my husband had told me when he saw you perform at the Atlanta Country Club that you had everyone there up and dancing. I witnessed this at our reception, too. One of my friends has a husband who never dances with her and always leaves wedding receptions early....she told me this morning that this was the first time he had danced with her at a wedding and the first time he had ever stayed to the end of a reception. I think this is a testament to how great your band is. Once again, our family's thanks for the large part you played in making the evening such a great success.

Words cannot begin to describe how fabulous the Atlanta Showstoppers were at our wedding. Although I'd seen you play before, you exceeded my expectations by a ton. You were the highlight of our wedding and created a night that we will never forget. I cannot tell you how many comments I have gotten from our guests on how great you were. Please extend my greatest thanks to everyone in the band. Is there any way you can send me your playlist? I'd like to recreate the set as a moment for my wedding album. Thanks again and I hope to see y'all play again soon! Lindsay and David Mathews (August 13, 2011) Carolina Inn Bride and Groom

Hi Glenn, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Angie and I landed last night (or this morning depending on how you look at it). Thank you for the email. Angie and I came away extremely happy and impressed with the job the Atlanta Showstoppers did. The music really got the celebration going and was more than we both could have imagined. Please thank all of the members, especially for allowing me to sing "Shout" with them. I also thought Angie and Vince's dance to "Butterfly Kisses" was one of the best moments for me of the weekend. I certainly will be recommending you to anyone that asks. Thanks again!

Thank you Glenn it was a great pleasure as well! You were so great to work with and I appreciate your openness to try something different from your normal gigs and bring a little West Coast to the East Coast! Thanks

Hi Glenn I can't say enough how wonderful you and the Showstoppers were! We had such a fabulous time and we have heard so many compliments about the band. It was a wonderful time and Jason and I had a fantastic time. I am sorry it took me so long to respond, but I just got back from the honeymoon yesterday. We had a great trip and now it is back to reality for me. I don't return to work until Monday and I am busy trying to get us settled. I wish we had another Shackelford because I really enjoyed everything and was so sad when my reception ended. I was having so much fun and I couldn't believe it was over. Thanks so much again!

Thank you, Glenn, for producing an absolutely wonderful evening of entertainment. The response from the delegates and their families has been overwhelmingly positive about the final night event and especially the band. As you mentioned, it was obvious there was tremendous energy in that ballroom I think out attendees could have danced all night!!!! Again, thank you for all you did to ensure it was an evening that will be remembered for years to come. Know that if there is an opportunity to partner in the future, I would be more than happy to do so and I'll be sure to recommend you to my meeting planning peers in the industry.

We had so much fun at the wedding and the next day I told my mom and all other people I have talked to that as long as you have a good band you will have a great wedding!!! Thank you so much for giving us a great wedding! I loved that everyone was dancing and everyone told me they had a great time and how fabulous the band was! I think some of the men may have even fallen in love with your female band members!!! It was everything I wanted! Thanks, Laura Dodson Ritchie (June 25, 2011) Hilton Sandestin

Hi Terry! AWESOME!!! The band was TOTALLY AWESOME!!! Every guest was commenting on how wonderful the band was. I had the Georgian Terrace put up a huge dance floor because I was anticipating that everyone would want to be up and shaking their booty! And I wasn't wrong! The dance floor was never empty! The band was terrific and although I only had a short opportunity to meet and speak with Glen, he couldn't have been more accommodating. I just wished that I had a moment that evening to tell everyone in the band how extremely pleased I was with their performance. I so enjoyed working with you as well, Terry. We must stay in touch. I have another daughter only 19 months younger than Amanda and someday soon I will be planning another wedding! And believe me, I will be booking THE ATLANTA SHOWSTOPPERS!! Thank you for all your help! Kathy Freebairn
Mother of the Bride (June 11, 2011)

Thank you for your kind note. The "Showstoppers" received high praise from (without fail) everyone that I spoke to at the reception. For me, the enthusiasm demonstrated on behalf of the attendees was quite unusual. They seemed to strike the perfect balance between the young and the old crowd and their song selection provided a very natural progression enjoyed by all as the evening moved forward. My guess is that you and they will be receiving more request from the WinstonSalem, Greensboro and Raleigh area as those were the three cities which were heavily represented Saturday. Lynn and I have always wanted to host an outdoor party at some point in time at our farm near High Point when the weather is optimal. Rest assured we will book the Showstoppers first....and then set the date for the party! Please send my sincere appreciation to each member of this talented and congenial band.

OMG, thank YOU! You and your band MADE the wedding reception the huge success that it was. I am blown away by your talent.

Thank you a million times, Glenn. Liz James

Hi Glenn, Thank you so much for the lovely email. We absolutely should be the ones thanking you! You guys did the most unbelievable job and certainly made the party what it was. Everyone (and I mean everyone!) was raving about the Atlanta Showstoppers and we feel so lucky to have heard you by chance at the Cloister on New Years Eve! Thank you all for making our night so very fun, I'm sure you could tell that Alex and I certainly had the very best night of our lives. All the best,

Thank YOU! You were AMAZING!!!! Everyone has been talking about how talented you were. I am thrilled we used you and we will reccommend you in the future. You made our wedding amazing. I came in from the bathroom at one point and no one was sitting!! You had everyone up dancing the entire time. I really appreciate you allowing me to go up on the chair and stage dive as well!! We had a blast!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Suzanne and Matt Sellecchia

The Atlanta Showstoppers were wonderful! We kept getting compliments throughout the night and the next day at brunch about how much fun everyone had dancing. Thank you for your help in this process! Best,
Casey Proescher Bride (April 2, 2011)

Casey's mom here. I have to second Casey's comments. The band was not only amazing, but the volume was perfect! I was worried that such a large band would blow the ear drums out of us older folks (as has been our experience at many other weddings and dances). But the Atlanta Showstoppers' sound was just right. I wish I had just planned to have them stay another hour because, as MOB I had to chat most of the night. I want a chance to dance more to their wonderful music! They were awesome! (Oh well, I do have two other unmarried daughters, so maybe I'll get that chance....) Thanks again, and please pass along our heartfelt compliments to the band members! Peggy Roche
Mother of the Bride (April 2, 2011)

Wow, what a fabulous party!!!!! Ya'll were incredible and made the party so much fun!!!! I constantly am having people tell me that it was the BEST band we have ever had. Everyone would really love to have you again next year. Men who have always dreaded the evening and never dance were out on the dance floor... having a ball. It was amazing the number of people that said they had never had that much fun at the Masqueraders Ball. All that was due to Atlanta Showstoppers. Ya'll are AWESOME!!!!
Helen Stewart

I just wanted to send a much belated thank you. You guys were phenomenal. We had such a great time and our guest have had nothing but wonderful comments about the band. I can't believe ya'll learned that song that fast, ya'll are pros. Thanks for making our day so special. I'm sure weddings become the same ol same ol for you guys, but ya'll do a great job of keeping the energy going for those of us whose day it is. Take care! Heather
Bride

Rick and I are happy to recommend The Atlanta Showstoppers. The wedding reception for our daughter was perfect, and The Atlanta Showstoppers added fantastic music and lots of fun for the evening. As requested, they started out with easy listening music for a little while and then engaged the guests on the dance floor for the rest of the evening. They kept the momentum going with their fantastic sound and expertise and certainly provided exactly what we hoped for. They are unquestionably a great band, and we can't wait to hear them again sometime! We would recommend them to anyone looking for that calibre of band. Every aspect of dealing with them was perfect. Thanks so much for your assistance. Caroline Baarcke

cannot tell you how much positive feedback we have received about The Atlanta Showstoppers. You were fantastic. The music made the whole wedding.... My feet are still sore!! Both of Lauren's Maids of Honor are newly engaged ( over the past 2 weeks) & have not begun to plan & asked for your info. I know another couple not yet engaged got your card as well as our friends from Baltimore. Everyone has mentioned the band Great job & thanks for playing the sings she requested especially "California Gurls. ". You guys are the best. We had never heard you play in person but could just tell from listening online that you were the right band for our guests. Thank you so much. You made it such a fun & memorable evening for all of us. Sharyn Dachille

You guys were fantastic!! The Atlanta Showstoppers was arguably the best party band that I have heard in over a decade. Fabulous repertoire. Superb vocals and horns. Wonderful talent! I cannot give enough praise. Everyone at the party shares my thoughts. We hope the Showstoppers become frequent visitors to Nashville. Jon Nesbitt
Wedding Client

Ellie. The Atlanta Showstoppers far exceeded my expectations. The lead singers where fantastic, the horn section made the sound resonate and Glen did a great job putting together a song list that keep everyone dancing and never stopping. "Monee/Monee" was the best followed by "We Are Family" should be part of every wedding going forward. In fact I am going to send you a video of this part of the evening. Everyone wanted to know where the Band came from and I suspect many will try to use them for their events. You made me proud. Thanks for being part of the "BEST WEDDING EVER" Brian & Maree Einhorn

Wedding Photographer Wilmington NC

The Atlanta Showstoppers were absolutely amazing. People are still talking about them and it is over a month later. Everyone from the photographer, catering staff, wedding planner and guests were amazed by their talent. I can't even count the number of people that said "best band we have ever heard at a wedding". Guests are saying it was the wedding of the century and I know a big part of that was due to The Atlanta Showstoppers. I would 100 percent recommend them to anyone. High quality performance, great crowd interaction (lots of people ended up on stage with the band throughout the night), and very friendly and flexible. Thanks again!

We are still recovering from the wonderful wedding reception for Allison and Hunt! The setting, dcor, food were all fabulous, but I feel that the Atlanta Showstoppers were the highlight of the evening. We have had two other bands at our daughter's weddings and we think that Atlanta Showstoppers is the best of all three. Your music appeals to young and old and the energy is fabulous. Thanks for the CD...I listen to it my car and it reminds me of the wedding reception. Kinsey Harper

Wow. You all were fabulous. Everyone is raving about the Atlanta Showstoppers!! I am going to run a few errands at lunch and pop in the CD you gave me. Thanks a bunch for that! I just can't tell you how much fun we had and you all were the catalyst. Allison and Hunt said it was the best party they had ever been to and it was a dream come true for them. Thank you for your willingness to meet our crazy requests. I hope I didn't get too carried away out there. I think the dress was holding me back! Thank goodness! Hope we have an opportunity to see you perform again. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know. Paulette Basham

I just wanted to thank you and The Atlanta Showstoppers for everything! Our guests are still talking about how great your performance was as well as what a great time they had at the reception. Our wedding would not have been as much of a success without you. Thank you so much for being easy and flexible to work with. It helped they whole evening go smoothly. Two couples that attended our wedding (the Tetricks and the Laings) enjoyed The Atlanta Showstoppers so much that they have booked you for their weddings. They are extremely excited to have you all perform at their wedding receptions! Elizabeth McNeely

The Showstoppers were AMAZING!!! People from both Atlanta and New Orleans have not stopped talking about them. There have been comments such as, "They were the best wedding band that I've ever heard!!" Hill and I would not change a thing about them. Not only did they sound fantastic, but they were extremely easy to work with. Glen is such a nice guy, and he really does care about his clients. Thanks so much for all of your help Rick, and I hope you have had a great summer! Regan Dupuy
Wedding Reception

I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to let you know that the Atlanta Showstoppers were absolutely fantastic at our wedding on 5/22. We have both been to many weddings, and I can honestly say this was the best band by far. Glenn Carvin and the band were all very professional, responded to our song requests (including learning a special song), and kept the party going all night! We received many compliments from our guests as well, many who told us that was the best wedding band they have heard. I would throughly recommend them to your clients who might be looking for a great band at a very reasonable price! Thanks very much for suggesting them and if we ever need a band in the future we will surely be repeat customers! Brad Morgan

Wow! What an amazing evening. After a beautiful wedding celebration and gathering on the lawn at the Grand Hotel, the doors were opened to the Grand Ballroom once the wedding party arrived. From the First Dance with Jennifer and Philip till the last dance the party didn't stop! The entire night the dance floor was packed and everyone was filled with the beat of the music! The range of music was amazing, each selection was upbeat and sounded like the original artist. The Atlanta Showstoppers were first class and did an amazing job bringing everyone together to enjoy the celebration. Now a week later we are still hearing from friends and family about the amazing band and music at Jenn and Philip's Wedding. Jamie McAleer
Wedding Reception

I speak for Caroline and myself when I say that you and the band did a fantastic job for our wedding. From our first dance (which was impressively performed) to the last, when we were up on stage dancing, every song was perfect! I have talked to so many people that attended the reception that were raving about the band. I will continue to pass recommendations along to other friends of mine that are getting married in the next year or two. Caroline Williams
Wedding Reception

Just a short note to tell you thanks for recommending the Atlanta Showstoppers to us for The Moses wedding party. I was the person who took care of them, and they were just awesome folks and so nice and personable. They all were so professional, courteous, and kind too. I really enjoyed getting to know them all. But the best part is how they took over the party scene with the most unbelievable array of songs that fit everyone's genre. This band has vocals that will match any band. The musicians are all talented and can play any type of music. They had great energy, and only took 1 short break....I have never seen so many people on a dance floor at one time with wedding clothes on partying and dancing like they were at an inaugural ball or the Super Bowl! When I say they are great, this does not do justice for their sound, vocals, music quality,stage show, or party atmosphere they created. They were simply awesome. In closing, I want to say I would give them my highest recommendation for any level of party desired, as they are ready to play for the President also! They exceeded our expectations and the wedding party feels like they got a bargain in them looking at it financially. If anyone would ever like me to give them a testimonial, feel free to have them call me or email me personally as I am one of their biggest fans now! Davey Brown,
R.Ph

Glenn, I cannot thank you and the band enough for making our wedding such an incredible event!! Everyone I talk to who was there comments about how incredible y'all are and what a fun time they had! Y'all truly exceeded my expectations. Rob and I both had a wonderful time at our wedding dancing, and I have y'all to thank for that. You are wonderful musicians and did a fantastic job. It was great getting to meet you as well. Hopefully some of my friends will use y'all for their weddings and we'll meet again. I thought you might like to see the pictures from the night, so I've included links to our photographers' website below. Thank you again so much, Jennifer Scarborough

Rick, Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous show the Atlanta Showstoppers put on at our daughters wedding. I had 25 to 30 people tell me during the evening that they were the best band they had ever heard. They played a great variety of songs that sounded as good or better than the original artist. The dance floor was so full the entire evening, that at one point people were dancing on the stage and the band never missed a beat. Glenn was a pleasure to work with and all the band members were very professional, friendly, and engaging. I was a little nervous in that we had never heard them before but I could not have been anymore pleased. Once again thank you for recommending the Atlanta Showstoppers. Mike Scarbrough
Wedding Client

The Showstoppers were AMAZING! Glenn was fabulous to work with prior to the wedding and during the reception! The band played such a great variety of music! Our guests were completely blown away by their sound and variety and we had several guests who are getting married in the near future who asked for their name. I'll pass along your contact information to them:) Thank you for all of your help! Catherine Klein

Wedding Reception Have had so many guest come up and comment on what a great show the Atlanta Showstoppers put on. This was the 102nd year of the Redstone Christmas Ball and everyone agreed it was a total success and possibly the best ever. An event such as ours which includes a formal presentation followed by a dance can be tough to program for. Our guests ranged from the college age presentees to their grand parents and great grandparents. You and the Atlanta Showstoppers performed exactly as requested by playing selections that appealed to all ages early in the evening and therefore filled up the dance floor from the minute you hit the stage. As the night progressed you gradually picked up the tempo and continued to keep the dance floor crowded for the whole evening. I was amazed that up until the last song we still had many of our older members on the floor as well as a crowd of the college age dancers. It is no small feat to get 21 young ladies dressed in formal ball gowns and white gloves to kick off their heels grab their dates and dance late into the night, but you guys performed that feat. I will be referring the Atlanta Showstoppers to any of my friends who need a great band for a corporate event, wedding or ball. Yours is the type of band which makes one almost want to invent a reason to have a party. John Simpson

Kenny and I would love to take this time to tell you how wonderful you all were at our recent wedding reception. The amount of talent in all of the band members was at it's best totally awesome!! The volume of the music was at it's best, not too loud that we couldn't visit with our friends, but just perfect! The joy that you brought to all of us will never be forgotton, and for that a "BIG" Thank you. As for myself, a cancer survivor, you brought to me many blessings of being able to hear the song as I danced with my son, "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Grobin. The gentlman who sang that song gave my son and I a moment together that we will cherish forever....He was tremendous!! Thank you for your gift of song, and God Bless Becky Morris

We have to thank YOU! It was an amazing evening and the Atlanta Showstoppers played a big role! I am so glad we chose you for this year's Gala and I would love to see you play again at our Gala next year.

Please mark those two dates already if you don't mind and let me know if you have other people interested in those dates. Stefanie Jehlitschka

The Atlanta Showstoppers are the Absolute Best Band!!! The horns led our precious bride and groom into the reception playing "I'm Going To The Chapel And I'm Going To Get Married" which set the festive, fun mood for the evening! Having an at home wedding had it's challenges. Even though the electrical transformer at the street had been upgraded several months ago, it decided to blow with the increase power required and put us in "Black out wedding mode"! But the Atlanta Showstoppers kept the party going strong! I did not know how important it is to have a great horn section! They were unstoppable! And the very second the power returned, it was Non Stop dancing fun! From the amazing versatility of their song list to the awesome musicians and spectacular vocalists, this band can not be beat! The level of service was off the charts even under these adverse conditions. With this fabulous level of musical talent, the bands cohesiveness was inspiring. They are all in sink with each other and realize the importance of their contribution to the Whole Event. JR, with East Coast Entertainment, Glen Carvin, with The Atlanta Showstoppers and all the terrific band members and crew, YOU ARE OUTSTANDING! Ginny McKay

The Atlanta Showstoppers were fabulous. I don't think I have ever seen people having such a good time dancing and listening to a band. The dance floor was full the entire night and I have had numerous letters, emails and phone calls about what a wonderful time people had and asking me where the band came from and who they were. The Atlanta Showstoppers are so talented and totally know how to work the crowd for a perfect evening. Glen, you could not have been nicer to work with and you and the band did everything we asked and more!! I know East Coast Entertainment only represents the best and Atlanta Showstoppers should be at the top of their list. Thank you again for helping to make our daughters wedding reception a HUGE success. Doris Lyons

Wedding client

First, I was struck by your humility. It told me instantly that your band's talent was real and didn't have to be propped up by insincere showboating. When the music, accompanied by your voices began, it was like liquid electricity poured forth in the room. People stopped talking and turned to look.We could have been sitting in a concert hall, your style and quality were so soul piercing. The musicians played to perfection from the drummer to the guitarists , the keyboard player all topped off by the horns and saxcreated goosebumps! The richness of the two womens' voices with yours, and the band's amazing variety were so enjoyable with each new song. I just drank it in with appreciation. There was never a time the whole evening that I was jarred by a glaring mistake. While you performed a range from Frank Sinatra to Aretha to rap, the crowd was mesmerized. The dancing was nonstop. We have received cards, emails and long distance calls from friends that came from Germany, China, NYC, California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Washington, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Iraq, about how your band blew them away. When we started planning the wedding, the bride and groom wanted a DJ because "the bands never sound as good as the recordsso why waste the money?" My husband and I really fought to have you. During the reception, they both came to say that you were absolutely the best thing about the reception and to thank us for having hired you. In short, you made a loving wedding, the most absolutely perfect memory for a lifetime. Many soldiers and their families will replay this sterling, good memory in their minds, during their tough and lonely deploymentsand that is what we were after. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Ramsay Gorham
Mother of the Groom

I am the father of the groom. You've heard from everyone so you might as well hear from me. Your group was fantastic. I am not so much a band expert as I am a person who realizes when a special event takes place. This was an event of relationships. Yes the wedding of Becca and Walker was incredible. We also had 14 active duty Army soldiers and their wives etc. We also had 5 parents of the active duty soldiers. All of these guys have had extensive deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Several were head back for another deployment. Walker will go to Afghanistan for his forth deployment in December.Most of these guys had not seen each other since graduating from West Point in 2005. My son Walker got to spend the most important day of his life with his wonderful Becca and to hug long lost soldier friends. Your band made this a very special night for these guys. You made them feel proud. You made them feel special. You gave them a great time and to be able to share this with their families. Yes your performance was excellent. Even more importantly your attitude towards these kids made them feel special. I have a saying"you can't teach class". Your group has class because of the way you treated these soldiers. I would strongly recommend your group for your talent but more importantly for your ability to make these special kids feel appreciated. F. Gorham

I want to thank you and the rest of the Atlanta Showstoppers for the first class entertainment you provided at Becca and Walker's wedding.

The memories of the flowers, food and decor will fade, but we will never, ever forget the band! Gaylord & Jo Bralley

It was a pleasure to have the Atlanta Showstoppers at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club. The band sounded fantastic and people are still talking about how much fun they had.

I just found my first internet connection in France. We arrived in Nice today after a few days in Paris and Cannes. We wanted to let you know what an amazing job we thought The Atlanta Showstoppers did at our wedding. We had an awesome time and could not have selected a better band!!!! Everyone was still talking about you ya'll at brunch Sunday morning!!! I would love a CD from the wedding!!!! Thank you!!! Lara San Martin
Wedding Client

I've actually just dropped you a note in the mail, but it can't hurt to reiterate how grateful I am for your help in finding the Atlanta Showstoppers to be our wedding band! As I mentioned countless times in emails, we wanted a band who could really lead the night in to being a super fun party. And they did it! You know, Jamie and I didn't really think about the fact that we hadn't even heard our band live until right when we got out on the dance floor (we had just a few other things going on :). But when they started with Jack Johnson, and we heard them pull it off almost as well as the real thing, we knew we were in for a great night. I had more people tell me what a great band they were, and it was nice to be able to tell them how professional and accommodating they were as well. Glenn was really intent on talking back and forth so that he had a good idea of what we were looking for and the environment we wanted to create for our wedding reception. I was so appreciative. All in all, it was the greatest night of our lives (for so many reasons), and I appreciate the part you played. Molly

“Twentyfive years of catering wedding receptions is enough to write a Wedding Book. We were recently introduced to the Atlanta Showstoppers for an outside “Father of the Bride” style wedding reception in Augusta, and our town is upside down! They appealed to every member of the audience and the dance floor stayed full all night. I was happy to have the food upstaged by the band because we enjoyed them, too!” Vera Stewart
Event Planner

"The Atlanta Showstoppers were terrific and I have received nothing but great feedback on your performance. Everyone loved you guys and you really took it to another level beyond anything we have ever had before! Many thanks!!!! Kristen Scott
CoChair Queen of Angels 10th Anniversary Gala and Auction

"The Atlanta Country Club would like to thank the Atlanta Showstoppers for a wonderful performance at our annual President's Ball. The sound and the high energy level of the band was fabulous and the feedback from our members has been great! We also appreciated the music selection which appealed to the widely diverse age group of the audience. The Atlanta Showstoppers are extremely talented and professional and we look forward to having you come back and perform at Atlanta Country Club again." Butch Braton
President ATLANTA COUNTRY CLUB

The Atlanta Showstoppers were the hit of our entire wedding! My guests were absolutely blown away by how amazing they sounded. I must have gotten over a dozen comments from my guests about the band! Thanks again! Elizabeth Neeland Fetzer (bride)

What a smashing success the evening was! The Atlanta Showstoppers are great! We loved it, the audience loved it, and it was one of the most exciting things to happen to downtown Roswell in, well... forever! Cristi Smith

The Atlanta Showstoppers were fantastic! We have heard rave reviews from everyone. You could probably get a feel for how great a time everyone was having by watching the crowded dance floor! The music and singing were as good as it gets.Thank you so much for making Liz's wedding reception a big success! I just wish I had another daughter! Elise Neeland

“The Atlanta Showstoppers were the perfect band for my 70th birthday party. They played a perfect mix of laid back music during the sit down dinner and then brilliantly picked it up for the duration of the party. We got so many compliments. Glenn handled all the details so we didn’t have to worry about anything. I want them back for my 80th!” Stanley Slutzky

What a great band! They played for my daughter's wedding and were unbelievable! The song selection was so much better than any other cover band I had ever heard and everything they played sounded just like the original artists even better in some cases. The vocals are as good as it gets and those horns are killer. When I heard them play another venue a few weeks later, they were just as good the second time. Cary Williams

“Everyone is still talking about how great all of you were! Thanks for all your help in making it the perfect evening for Lara and Tim. I want all to know how wonderful the Atlanta Showstoppers are and how easy you are to work with. Thanks again for all your help in giving the guests an experience for a lifetime!” Laurie Vance, Special Events Manager, Canoe Atlanta, GA

“Walker and I just made it to Washington and honestly we both can’t even put into words how much FUN we had thanks to the Atlanta Showstoppers...you all made the reception and everyone was on the dance floor wanting more! Your sound, style, and ability to play almost any type of music and just kill it was AMAZING!!! The lead male vocalist was unbelievable but I have to say I sure liked the lovely ladies on both the left and right...I just couldn’t get enough...I would have danced all night to you guys playing!!! People will be talking about you guys forever! Thank you so much for everything!!!” Becca Gorham (Bride) Seattle, Washington

“I want to thank the Atlanta Showstoppers for the first class entertainment you provided at Becca and Walker’s wedding. Your band is incredible and is the perfect choice for a wedding reception. Thank you too for your excellent communication with Becca in planning the song list. The memories of the flowers, food and decor will fade, but we will never, ever forget the band!” Gaylord and Jo Bralley (Bride’s parents) Shelby, NC

“When we laid out the money for your band, I was nervous to say the least. When the music began, it was like liquid electricity poured forth in the room. People stopped talking and turned to look. We could have been in a concert hall your style and quality were so soul piercing. The musicians played to perfection from the drummer to the guitarist, the keyboards all topped off by the horns created goosebumps! The richness of the 3 vocalists and the band’s amazing variety were so enjoyable with each new song. I just drank it in with appreciation. There was never a time the whole evening that I was jarred by a glaring mistake. While you performed a range from Sinatra to Aretha to contemporary the crowd was mesmerized. The dancing was nonstop.

We have received cards, emails and long distance calls from friends that came from Germany, China, NYC, California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Washington, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Iraq, about how your band blew them away!

When we started planning the wedding, the bride and groom wanted a DJ because “the bands never sound as good as the records so why waste the money?” My husband and I really fought to have you. During the reception, they both came to say that you were absolutely the best thing about the reception and to thank us for having hired you. In short, you made a loving wedding the most absolutely perfect memory for a lifetime. Many soldiers and their families will replay this sterling, good memory in their minds during their tough and lonely deployments and that is what we were after. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!” Ramsay Gorham (mother of the groom) Albuquerque, NM

“Glenn, I am the father of the groom. You’ve heard from everyone so you might as well hear from me. The Atlanta Showstoppers were fantastic! I am not so much a band expert as I am a person who realizes when a special event takes place. This was an event of relationships. Yes the wedding of Becca and Walker was incredible. We also had 14 active duty Army soldiers and their wives. We also had 5 parents of the active duty soldiers. All of these guys have had extensive deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Several are headed back for another deployment. Walker will go to Afghanistan for his fourth deployment in December. Most of these guys had not seen each other since graduating from West Point in 2005. My son Walker got to spend the most important day of his life with his wonderful Becca and to hug long lost soldier friends.

Your band and the special tribute (“God Bless The USA”) you performed made this a very special night for these guys. You made them feel proud. You made them feel special. You gave them a great time and to be able to share this with their families. Yes your performance was excellent. Even more importantly, your attitude towards these kids made them feel special. I have a saying that “you can’t teach class.” Your group has class because of the way you treated these soldiers. I would strongly recommend your group for your talent, but more importantly for your ability to make these special kids feel appreciated. Thank you for helping to make this a magical event!” Frank Gorham (father of the groom) Albuquerque, NM

“It was a pleasure to have the Atlanta Showstoppers at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club. The band sounded fantastic and people are still talking about how much fun they had. I can’t wait to have you back and neither can my members! Word normally travels fast around such a small island, but news about the Showstoppers had traveled before the night even ended! See you again soon.” Jennifer Mitchell, Figure 8 Island Yacht Club Wilmington, NC

“I don’t even know where to start! What an amazing job you guys did at our wedding! We were looking for a band that could lead the night into a super fun party and the Atlanta Showstoppers exceeded all of our expectations. I have heard more feedback from our guests about how great our band was and how much fun they had on the dance floor. People are still talking about it. When Jamie and I heard the first few notes of Jack Johnson’s “Better Together”, we knew you were going to be perfect! Thank you for being so professional and accommodating as well. The fact that you were so easy to work with made our experience even that much better. It was the greatest night of our lives, for so many reasons, and you all played a large part in making the reception everything we could have hoped for! I am so appreciative!” Molly Allen Hargather (Bride) Atlanta, GA
