What an awesome wedding! I had such a great time. It was a glorious day and I had this wonderful lunch with my little sister across the street at a French cafe before I loaded the equipment in. It was great fun running into Eddies grandmother too.
I've been playing for her retirement community every month for several years and I also have photographed her for my Senior Glamor Shots company I run. I saw her again this weekend we were really braggin' on the wedding :-) :-) Everything about your wedding was memorable. The strawberries were the best I ever ate, your mom was a doll, the crowd was wild...I wish they were all this fabulous!!! I'm looking forward to seeing you in Hilton Head, Brittany asked for a contract today! - Self-published

Good Morning Jen!

I can’t thank you enough for your contribution to a lovely evening. I have a little something for you and just planned on using your address on Ridgewood Ct is that correct?

I have a friend whose daughter is getting married in a few weeks and having a reception here Memorial Day weekend, that Saturday night, 5/24/2008. Can you recommend anyone for a string duo? They are having the reception at Harmony on the Lakes in what is considered Hickory Flat I believe. My friends name is Corinne Schulzke. It is easiest to reach her by email right now She leaves town this weekend so time is of the essence. She had made some contacts but never heard back from them.

"March 2008 Wedding"

Hi Jeni,

I just wanted to give a personal thank you. I am sorry that I never got the chance to say hello to you! I really wanted to speak to you in person,but never found the chance! Funny, the way a day that you plan for for such a long time can just fly by! That being said, the Society Express Band was TREMENDOUS!

I had a great time and so did my guests! Especially, my dad's family. They were the one dancing in the circle during "rolling on the river." I told Neal to watch out- as that is where I come from!

At any rate, I just wanted to say thanks again for such a wonderful afternoon. Please pass my thanks along to the rest of the band, you all did a great job. Neal and I really appreciated your talent and you helped make our day that much better!

"A review from a former client"

December 9, 2007

Dear Mark and Tamar,

Jeni asked me to email you a reference on her and her band. We used them for our oldest child's Bar Mitzvah and our youngest daughter's Bat Mitzvah. Our two children in between we hired a very high end DJ. First of all there is no comparison between the Band and a DJ. Second Jeni has the very best band. We went to see at least 5 bands before we hired Jeni the first time (10 years ago) and she was beyond any doubt the best and continued to be the best when it came to our youngest (1 and a half years ago). Jeni plays everything. Her band has a superb sound and the vocals are great too. Jeni is very reliable too and will do anything you ask her to do musically. I recommend her and her band to everyone who wants a great party. She has my unqualified endorsement.
In fact I may be using her again in the near future.

Book her before someone else grabs your date - she is very popular. Let me know if I can furnish any further information.

Hi Leslie,

What a wonderful review. I just emailed Jeni telling her she should always use you as a reference. I really appreciate you emailing me so quickly. Your email was all I needed to clinch the deal. I just emailed Jeni asking her to play at my daughter's batmitzva party.

Thanks again.

Tamar Stern


We used all 7 pieces and it was fabulous. You won't regret it. They are just awesome. The kids want DJs for BMs but even the best, and we had the best, are too loud. Jeni knows how to keep the volume just right. My son was crazy for the Beatles and she played all the songs he wanted. You have made a good choice.

You won't regret your decision.
Mazel Tov on your daughter.
