Stuart and I cannot find words to properly express how thankful we are for your kindness and generosity. Your Band and your singing for our ceremony - WOW! Thank you for making the happiest day of our lives so perfect and special.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Shlomo Haviv Orchestra!
Let's talk pre-wedding. Shlomo and his wife Sarit could not have been more accommodating! Despite being located in Brooklyn, they were willing to meet with us twice in Manhattan. In between meetings, they were exceptionally responsive via email, phone and text message. They took us step by step through every important moment of our big day so that when it arrived it was a truly seamless experience. I (the groom) went into this wedding saying the only two things that mattered to me were the food and the music...and so this was SO IMPORTANT to me to have very specific songs and genres at specific times.
One of the worries I had going into this with a band VS a DJ is that the music selection would be limited. Would a wedding band be able to play pretty obscure songs like Cake's "Love you Madly" or Collective Soul's "Shine" AND a Greek Sirtaki??? Not only were they able to accommodate my requests, but they nailed the songs! But don't just take my word for it, when you meet with Shlomo and Sarit, they will give you mp3's and videos of them playing songs/genres you are interested in so you know what you're getting. Bottom line - they will put together exactly the right ensemble (whether you just want a smaller "core" band or a full on orchestra) for your event.
But none of this would matter if not for the quality...which was AMAZING. Rock, R&B, Top 40, Motown, Jazz, Big Band, Israeli, Jewish, Greek...you name it...we had it at our wedding. The music was so good that we had the wedding reception audio put on my iPhone and listened to it during our honeymoon. Shlomo himself is an incredibly accomplished, talented singer and plays an incredible amount of instruments.
In short, Shlomo and Sarit put on an amazing event that people come up to us a year later to tell us how great the band was. It was exactly what we wanted and I can't imagine anyone else being able to meet/exceed our expectations!
We were first introduced to the Sholmo Haviv Band at an event where they were performing. I was blown away by the singers and energy they brought. I told my husband we must have this band at our wedding. Our wedding guests were a true reflection of NYCs melting pot and we wanted music from all genres and a dj for the last hour to play 90s hip hop. Shlomo knew exactly what we were looking for and he delivered. It's been a year since our wedding and we are told every time we see our family and friends that we had the best band they have ever heard. We are so grateful to Shlomo and the band for making a day we'll never forget so special.

Shlomo, his wife, and son Michael are an amazing team. Mrs. Haviv handled all the logistical details and communicated clearly what all the charges and options were. Shlomo, Michael, and their crew showed up early and got everything ready. They did the announcing and music at the Tisch, under the Chuppah, and at the wedding. Everything was unbelievable, and they did a great job "sensing" the crowd and playing the right music to get everyone dancing. My wife and I could not have asked for anything better.

Shlomo was truly amazing and made our wedding day perfect. We hired Shlomo to do all of the Jewish music at the wedding. The horah was extremely important to us and we wanted it to be special. From just a few conversation with Shlomo he got exactly what we wanted. We are still getting non stop compliments about the horah and ceremony music and how amazing it was. People are telling us they have never seen or heard anything like that. He even thought ahead to bring instruments to help make the sound better. We thank Sholmo for making the day so perfect and would highly recommend him. He is very professional and very talented at what he does.

Providing a review for Shlomo Haviv Music is the least that my wife and I can do to show our absolute and genuine appreciation for the work, time, effort and love that they put into making our wedding great and memorable for us and all of our guests!!
The event was beautiful, because they put their hearts into it and really made all efforts to ensure the flow and organization of the entertainment from beginning to end.
They ALL did an incredible job and we'll never forget it!!
We can't thank you enough!

Working with the Haviv family was truly a pleasure. They sat with us until they had the same vision in mind as we did. Everything was PERFECT. Shlomo and his band performed at the Chupa ceremony. The music sounded beautiful and Shlomo's voice is just amazing. They did a live hora which sounded great and got everyone on their feet. Mike Haviv was our DJ and he did an amazing job. He has the same ability as his father to read the crowd and play what they wanted to hear. It was great. Sarit coordinated everything for us. She is so organized and had everything planned and executed to the T. I could not thank this family enough. True talent and professionalism. I definitely recommend their company. You will NOT be disappointed.
Shlomo Haviv was able to work to make our wedding the perfect experience for both family and friends. Shlomo Haviv enriched our event and made our wedding an unforgettable experience. I strongly recommend Shlomo Haviv and I believe he will surely be a valuable addition to your wedding!

I had Mr. Shlomo Haviv for my wedding and I was extremely satisfied with his outstanding performance along with his band.
He really enhanced the event and uplifted the spirit among all the guests. He made my wedding an unforgettable one.
I highly recommend him for any event.
Thank you Shlomo.
Shlomo Haviv and his band made my wedding! We loved that he could sing in multiple languages. We specifically wanted hebrew and Russian and they rocked it. Following the international music, we were blown away by the pop music. Shlomo gathers an amazing team of performers. I highly recommend this band! They're such fun!
When we met you we knew we were in good hands. You made us feel at ease and we were overwhelmed by your awesome musical performance. Shlomo, people are still raving about your singing at the chuppah. We look forward to many more simchas! With gratitude.

Thank you so much for helping us have the best Hora ever… You rocked the house! It was really wonderful to have you at our wedding and we hope to see you again soon!

Shlomo Haviv and his band were absolutely AMAZING!!! They are so versatile and covered everything from Hebrew/jewish music and the hora to top 40 music and American classics. Shlomo also sang 'im eshkachech' at the ceremony which made us all so emotional we cried: his singing is so powerful and beautiful he gave us all chills and truly made the ceremony the most amazing moment of our lives. Our guests are still raving about our band and ceremony music. From the start, Shlomo Haviv Music was SUPER accommodating, knowledgeable, patient and organized. Shlomo Haviv and his band read the crowd and the dance floor was filled all night long! I highly recommend this band. They made our wedding and exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a band, look no further. They even offer a Band & DJ package which really fit our needs as we wanted the last hour to be DJ music. Michael the DJ rocked the house and Shlomo Haviv Music really covered everything we could have imagined and then some. A+++++
Shlomo Haviv really know how to cater to the audience! He would play exactly what we wanted, but also made sure that everyone was up on the dance floor and having a great time. Even my family, whom isn't usually the type to get up and dance so much at a wedding, was packed onto the dance floor! He really made our night extra special! And for travelling from New York to Philly, he was definitely not outrageously priced either, but certainly worth every penny!
Shlomo Haviv, his wife Sarit and his children Michael and Linda are INCREDIBLE!! They blew us away with their warmth, professionalism, and unbelievable talent! They travelled to Philadelphia in 2014 for our wedding, were so accommodating and truly made us feel like we were part of their family. To this day our friends and family are still talking about how amazing and diverse our band was! Thank you all so much for making our day so much more special-- we mean it from the the bottom of our hearts!
We had a real pleasure dealing with Shlomo. Although he is based out of NY, he played in Philadelphia plenty of times and will travel. The real beauty of his band is that he will assemble a custom group of musicians depending on your needs, and they are all excellent. He is honest and most importantly, has a beautiful voice. As an MC, he is exciting and charismatic, and everyone told us what a fun party we had. Thank you, Shlomo!
