Testimonials

“WOW” is the best way for me to describe Gene Press Productions.  What you did for us was more then we ever dreamed of!  I’m still hearing comments to this very day that our band was truly “one-of-a-kind”.

Being in the events industry myself, and having recommended Gene Press Productions to my clients throughout the years, it was an easy choice when planning my own wedding.

Gene and his staff’s ability to help us put together multiple vendors in a short time and turning them into the finished product quickly and efficiently was wonderful, and working with Gene was an absolute delight.  He was receptive to all our needs and made it happen.  You guys are AWESOME!  Thank you so much for making our wedding a huge hit!”

“ I am so grateful to you and your team…I was tasked with hiring an authentic African ensemble…with little notice…you made it happen with ease.  Your familiarity with the space and strict security regulations at the United Nations made load-in, setup, and execution a breeze.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for the hard work and dedication you displayed at our Annual National Convention & International Business Opportunity EXPO.  It was truly a pleasure working with such a quality organization.”

“Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for once again making our fundraiser a huge success!“

“Thank you so very much for making my daughter’s wedding the elegant, exciting, warm and wonderful day that it was!!  Your music was superb.  Your band was sensational.  For you, it’s business, but for me, doing business with you was a pleasure!”

“Thank you SO much for all the work you did to make our event special – you have an amazing attention to detail… nothing but positive reviews from all our guests.”

“Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for the time and effort you spent coordinating the music for our fundraiser at the Rainbow Room.  Your band was a class act and the music…terrific!”

“Gene has performed with great professionalism for both my corporate and social clientele.  I have always admired his dedication and expertise in the entertainment field.”

“Planning a Bar Mitzvah is certainly anxiety-producing, yet filled with pride and joy.  It’s for this reason that we wish to extend our warmest plaudits to you and your staff.  Your professionalism in this day and age should be enough, but when that attribute is combined with warmth and talent, the mix is unsurpassed.”

“The Heard Museum’s ‘Moondance Gala’ has enjoyed the magnificent dance music by Gene Press for the past decade…a big part of our tradition…”

 “Our event went off without a hitch!  Your band was outstanding, as was the comedic magician.”

“Yes, my feet are hurting. You did it!!! Great job last night. Lots of dancing. Everyone had a blast. I heard many compliments about the band. Thank you for listening to our request for contemporary up beat music. You made it lots of fun. I loved hearing all of my special requests too. They sounded great!!
Thanks for everything. It was a pleasure working with you.”

“Just a quick note to say what a great job you, the orchestra and your vocalists did on Saturday night!! My husband Richard and I had a blast! I’ve received so many compliments from our Ball guests that evening. Most notably, everyone appreciated the high quality of the performances and the wide range of musical genres that you played.

Perhaps the greatest compliment of all is the number of people who started dancing immediately!! I am still shocked that happened and so pleased that it did. That only happened because the music was so terrific. You filled the room with wonderful sounds all night long. And, we even got to talk over dinner quite nicely as you played great stuff then too! A really incredible Heart Ball performance, thank you!”

“Gene Press made magic for Heart Ball Twenty-Twelve. Thanks to him, the evening commenced with a trio that was spot on, and continued with a full orchestra that got it just right through the dinner hour, speeches and dancing.

Gene is a master to work with. He’s hard-working, professional and so knows his stuff. He sweats the details and the final effect for your evening really will be…just magic.

Thank you Gene!”

“Thank you so much for everything last weekend.  You made the night unforgettable for the guests!  It seemed like they never wanted to leave the dance floor, and you provided such an incredible atmosphere.  I am so grateful to have worked with someone as great as you!”

Dear Gene,

Thank you for everything last night!  Everyone was raving about your performance.  Al and I spoke this morning about how much everyone loved the music and what you did for the event.  You are “so in” for next year!

Renee Dee                                   President – Black, Starr & Frost       Orange County Heart Ball 2015

                                                                                                                                                                  

“The very talented Gene Press has been providing the musical backdrop for the International Quality of Life Awards Gala, held annually at the United Nations, for nearly two decades.  Gene is the essence of the consummate professional, always delivering on his word, and it’s indeed a pleasure working with him as my team and I plan each year’s event.  From my own personal experience, I know you can always count on each and every musical performance to be of the highest quality, carefully crafted to fit the client’s wishes and spirit of the occasion.”

Harriet W. Giles, Ph.D., Director of External Relations, College of Human Sciences, Auburn University

“I would like to recommend Gene Press Productions for their unparalleled level of service and ability to find the perfect entertainment to enhance your special event.  Gene provided the perfect pianist for our cocktail pre-wedding reception that was held at the St. Regis.

As for our wedding the next evening at the Hotel Plaza Athenee, Gene provided a marvelous classical trio for the ceremony and cocktail reception.

The highlight for our wedding reception was a fantastic cabaret performance by Broadway star, Deb Lyons, accompanied by a truly talented  jazz quartet.  We kept Deb as a surprise for our cabaret-loving crowd, and they are still acclaiming her talents!

Gene’s behind-the-scenes production, in addition to all of the musicians, worked tirelessly to provide us with exactly what we desired.  Our guests are still raving about the entertainment months after the wedding.  It was apparent at every step in our planning that Gene was engaged, caring, and intent on making our events a success, which he certainly did!

Again, we want to thank you for the marvelous work you did in implementing the wonderful and memorable musical accompaniment to all components of our wedding.”
