Client Testimonial from Heather & Emerson’s Wedding - CWB Performed at Bellvue Manor Venue

Without any question, the BEST band in Toronto. Hired Chicken and Waffles to play for our wedding. They did not disappoint. Everyone had a blast listening and dancing to you guys groove out. They carried the party. Many people were wondering who these guys were and where we found them. Not only are they amazing musicians, but amazing people as well. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to you, and working with you. Deryck was with us every step of the way for planning as well, and the rest of the band members were approachable and helpful. They were fun and easy going, and most of all they played some amazing music exceptionally well! We look forward to continuing our friendship with these guys. Amazing band!

Thank you!!

Good Morning  Deryck,

Thanks for the kind words! We are back from the Spice Island - Grenada - relaxed and thankful that we had such a great and Blessed day on May 10th.  The band was amazing as per the usual and we were both so happy with the music.  Please tell Omar that I was ok with sharing the dance floor with him for Too Real by Kerwin Dubois - although his eyes were closed while dancing so not sure he even saw me :)

Client Testimonial from Wedding -  CWB Performed at The Berkley Church

Hello Deryck,

Honestly – you guys made the evening. Everyone, EVERYONE, came up to me to comment on how great you guys were. The music was perfect, you guys sounded amazing and every song made me want to get up and start dancing. And we did!

The house set, the reggae, even the top 40 stuff that I usually don’t like just worked perfectly. You guys were amazing. Thank you for making it such a great night.

I hope you guys got a chance to eat and enjoy yourselves. Will be recommending you to anyone I know getting married.

Keep playing together…you’re too good not to.

Client Testimonial from a Wedding for Julie and Dan Steinberg - CWB Performed at The Four Seasons

Hi Deryck,

Thank you so much for your kind words.  We are so happy that you played at our wedding.  You did a phenomenal job and everyone has been raving about it!  Plus, you did inspire our late night menu :-)  

Everyone was very happy with the fact that it was a little quieter when people were eating and could talk to one another during dinner.  But then, you brought the heat!  We really appreciate the energy and excitement you brought to our wedding and believe that your love of music really shows.
