The Significant Others: What They're Saying!


"The band was fantastic!  Everyone danced constantly and yelled "Encore" when the night was over.  We could not have been more pleased!"

-Mother of the Bride (June 26th, 2011)


"Hey Andy - The Venture Rays were awesome!!  They were professional, talented, with such fun personalities.  We really enjoyed having them play.  All of our guests just raved about how good they were and how much fun they had at our party.  The Venture Rays had everyone dancing, and most importantly, the birthday girl had an amazing time.  Thanks so much!  Hope to work with the Venture Rays again in the future!"

-Liz (host of private birthday party, JUNE 2011)


"Hi Scott, I just wanted to thank you again for an amazing show Friday night.  I had people telling me all weekend how great you all were!" 

-Jenna Baer (Office of Annual Giving, University of Richmond) - JUNE 2011


"Hello, Scott. This is Damien from the October 17th Main Street Station wedding. Now that we've settled in here in Denver (we got internet this morning), I wanted to thank you and your band for such a great time. You guys were both very professional and fun, and the little improvisations due to my own aloofness (I know we weren't the easiest couple to work with), were seamless. Really, thank you so much. Everyone has had great things to say about your performance!"

-Damien (married OCT 17, 2010)


"Venture Rays, You guys rocked at our wedding. I'm so glad I found you on line. The music couldn't of been better! Thx for being part of making our wedding one of a kind. And to end on ring of fire! Ahhhhh. :))))). Well we our off to HI for our honeymoon. I'm Def. Gonna recommend you guys to anyone that needs a kick a-s band. We are going to post a good review once we are at a computer. Scott, please forward this to the entire band. Have a great day!"

-Anna-Marie (married OCT 16, 2010)


"Hey Scott!! Just a note to thank you and the Venture Rays for a FANTASTIC performance last night at Anna-marie and John's wedding. You all knocked it out of the park!! I'm sorry I left without saying goodbye, but I knew that once you gave into 1 extra song If I waited for you to finish I could be there all night!!! Please pass along my thanks to your band, I enjoyed everyone. I look forward to working with you all again soon."

Hi Andy, Loved the Venture Rays band! We had lots of compliments about them. In addition to providing excellent entertainment, they were also very personable. I would highly recommend them. :) Amanda

Andy, Thanks for reaching out. The Venture Rays were wonderful! They really did a spectacular job at our wedding. My biggest thing was having a band that could keep people out on the dance floor - and Venture Rays did just that. So much dancing!!! They were really, really great! I couldn't be happier with how the night turned out.

Thanks, Jennie


"The Venture Rays perform a great show including both modern music along with some not so distance past hits with a modern twist. The band is current, professional, and easy to work with. They've been at our outdoor events the last two years, and we consider them one of the top bands in Central VA."

Brian B. Mancini Director, Dinwiddie County Parks and Recreation

Hi Andy, We are back from the honeymoon and all settled in, so I wanted to respond to your email that I received last week. I'm not sure if my mom responded yet or not, but we absolutely loved the venture rays. They played a wide variety of music for our guests... everyone (including me!) was on their feet the entire reception. They played the familiar hits with their own twist to the song... and kept it upbeat to keep the crowd interested. We had some issues with the weather and they were very accommodating. They even played a little late for us when the other parts of our reception (dinner, cake) went long. They really made our event the amazing party that it was, despite some rain! Many of our guests complimented us on the talent of the band and couldnt believe that we hired them without ever seeing/hearing them in person! I would absolutely hire them again - I just wish we could have heard them play for longer during the night. I was on the dance floor chanting "One more song!" at the end of the night... sadly we were already past the noise ordinance time for the town. Thanks again for recommending them, please send on my compliments if you speak with them.

Julia Hayes

Hey Andy The Venture Rays were great. They learned a song for us and kept the party going past their scheduled stop time. They were pleasant and professional and we loved having them. Please pass our names on to anyone considering them for a wedding. Thanks for following up!
