Gabriella W. - October 2018
Ready in 10 was by far one of the best things that happened to my wedding. When I asked my guests what their favorite part of the wedding was, so many people brought up the band! I dealt with Sal from the very beginning when I first booked the band for my October wedding. From our first conversation, he was very kind and put me at ease (which is what you want if you are the bride). I planned my wedding myself and it was so nice not to keep checking in with the band (unlike some other vendors that I had to). Sal and the team were always there when I wanted to talk or had questions. When I was looking for a string quartet for my wedding ceremony, Sal mentioned that he knew of one and would get some info on pricing and availability for me, which he did and I booked them! When I told Sal that I was a huge fan of the Backstreet Boys and asked if he could learn one of my favorite songs, they did and performed it SO well. It was a huge hit among my wedding guests. The band was also engaging the crowd while performing. Ready in 10 kept everyone interested and they performed such a wide variety of music types that had even my elderly family members dancing into the early morning! My college friends were even asking for an encore at the end of the night! I am so happy with how everything turned out with the band!! You will not go wrong booking Ready in 10 for your wedding. 5/5 stars.

I’ll start with the main things that make Ready in 10 amazing, and then get into the details of what made them blow us away at our Wedding. So, first off, they are super professional and were really easy to work with. Every little request we had they pulled off and Sal was cool and calm every time we spoke with him in the planning stages before the wedding. And let me tell you, we did things very non traditionally, and they accommodated us with ease. At the Wedding, they sounded incredible. From our Ceremony, to Cocktail Hour (ours was more like 2 hours), to the Reception, everyone at our Wedding kept coming up to us saying how amazing they were, asking us who they were, and where we found them. We had just the 5 guys and not the girl that you see on their website, which we were initially concerned about but they reassured us they could play anything regardless and they were not kidding. Once they start playing you won’t be thinking about anything but how much fun you’re having and how much fun everyone at your Wedding is having. They played every song we wanted and absolutely nailed every single one of them. Now, let me get into the finer details of how great these guys are. From Ceremony to the end of the night, they didn’t take a break. They did, but not everyone at once, and so even during dinner we were serenaded by one man and a guitar before they seamlessly switched to give that guy a break. This wasn’t something we were expecting. We expected for them to put on a playlist or something, but what they did made all the difference. We had a schedule for the day of, that the band was very aware of and we had a wedding coordinator to help on the day of as well. But, as things go, everything went to hell in terms of timing lol, but no one would have guessed it because the band just kept playing and kept everyone entertained as our cocktail hour (1.5 hours for us) went to 2 hrs. Then, we had a surprise for our guests with an ice cream man, but he came about 15 minutes early before dessert was set up and the kids at our wedding found out and the game was over there lol. Again, the band kept everything rolling. While most people were outside waiting for their double cones, the band played music that was maybe a bit more mellow but still had a groove to keep the party inside moving. Absolutely perfect. Once everyone started getting back on the dance floor they followed suit and adjusted their playlist and we danced the rest of the night. We also threw a last minute song request at them for the last song, which they of course played and everyone went wild. So, they had to of course play another song as our families shouted, “one more song” over and over. They were clearly prepared for this with the perfect song to appease the wild audience and yet calm us all down a bit. Really perfect. So, I hope I provided enough details for whoever is reading this to book them now. You won’t be disappointed and Ready in 10 will make the party amazing and make it your own. Thank you again Sal, and the whole band, for everything you did for us. Truly amazing talents and truly genuine and amazing people which is even more important in my opinion.

I really do not think a review is enough to explain just how great Ready in 10 is... We live in Florida and were planning our wedding in NY. Our number one priority for our wedding reception was to have a party we would never forget. We scoured the Knot and the internet looking for the perfect band for us when we came across Ready in 10. Just by chance, one of our bridesmaids was visiting us in FL when we brought up Ready in 10 - her jaw dropped. Not only was she a self proclaimed "groupie" of the band, she and her sister had fostered a friendship with their lead singer Sal. They couldn't say enough great things about the band! Little did we know we would soon feel the exact same way! Our expectations were high, but Sal and the whole Ready in 10 band blew our expectations away and gave us the party of a life time. Sal had the entire party dancing the night away, and didn't stop until the venue turned the lights on to notify us that we were officially out of time - actually we were 15 minutes over! These guys are true professionals with amazing range. Sal played light guitar and sang during our ceremony and cocktail hour. I cannot recommend this option enough - he was fantastic. For the reception, Sal joined his 5 other band mates. They covered the "must have to keep the parents happy" wedding songs at the beginning of the reception, then kicked it up an amazing playlist of hits from 90's and 2000's to get the party really going for us (we are in our early 30's). Each song was better than the last, and they sounded amazing. We have received multiple texts from friends and family asking for the bands information as they are as hooked as we are! While everyone enjoyed the venue and food, EVERYONE has raved about how great the band was. I cannot thank Sal and the entire band enough for making our wedding a truly unforgettable night. The entire process of working with Sal was easy and enjoyable. We had a handful of special requests, and they not only catered to them, but nailed all of them. While we are sad our party of lifetime is over, we are so excited to have forged a relationship with Sal and are ecstatic that Ready in 10 has a ton of shows around Long Island. Now if I can only convince Sal and the band to spend their winters down in Florida! Once again, thank you so much for giving us a night no one is soon to forget!
