"My husband and I hired Central City Orchestra for our wedding this past June and they truly were the highlight of our entire night!  As big music lovers, having a live band with great energy and sound was the number one priority for us and Central City Orchestra surpassed every expectation!  They were absolutely PERFECT!  We went to go see one of their showcase shows and we could hear the music outside as we walked up to the venue.  Before even walking through the door we knew we had found our band!  We loved them so much we decided to use them for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well which added that special touch.  They are all such talented musicians!  Not only do they sound amazing and know how to get the party going with their high energy performance, they were also very professional and accommodating throughout the whole process.  They helped keep the flow of the wedding going and there was never a dull moment!  They also learned a couple of our favorite songs which helped make our night even more special.  Hiring Central City Orchestra for our wedding was the best decision we made for our wedding.  Our guests still make it a point to tell us how amazing they were!  Thank you CCO for making our wedding day the best party ever!"

"What an incredible band! The dance floor was packed all night! At one point during our daughters outdoor wedding, the power needed to be shut down for a little while due to lightning. CCO didn't let that stop them as the horn section continued to play and kept the party going. All night long, our guests started every conversation with, "where did you find this band?" They were shocked to find out that they were a central Pennsylvania band. Everybody assumed they were from NYC or Philadelphia. Katie was very easy to contact and always available as we planned the wedding. She worked great with us and the caterers to manage the flow of the evening. Everything was perfect! 10 out of 10!"

"Simply put, Central City Orchestra was amazing. They have such high energy, great style, and everyone in the band is incredibly talented. They are very professional, but very warm and friendly. Many of our guests went out of their way to tell me this was the best wedding band they have ever seen (including some guests who a band at their own wedding). Hiring this band will be one of the best choices you make for your wedding. I cannot recommend them enough." 

Mark Simpson

Development Coordinator, The Arc of York County, York, PA

"Our agency, The Arc of York County, hired Central City Orchestra for our gala fundraiser, our 2nd annual The Arc Ball and Auction on March 9, 2019.  They were an instant and absolute hit with our guests, and Katie was wonderful to work with from the planning side of things.  She worked closely with me to make sure that everything was in place and we had a good plan for the evening's flow.  When we had an unexpected narrower timeframe to set up, the band worked within the constraint and were still ready to perform before they were needed.  I had the chance to see CCO in performance both before and after we hired them for our gala.  What I love about them is, as a group and as individual performers, they are so versatile and so consistent at the same time  --- every time I hear them, the show is never the same; but it’s always excellently performed!  The vocals and the instrumentation are always on point, and you can tell that each of the CCO members is having as good a time performing as the guests are experiencing their shows."

Director of Alumni Relations, York College, York, PA

"We hired Central City Orchestra for our alumni weekend which included an audience of over 600+ guests during our grand finale event. Central City Orchestra did not disappoint! They were incredible to work with and our audience RAVED how great they were! Katie and her team had a lot of great ideas and were fabulous partners. Their stage /lighting was extremely professional and their upbeat energy was contagious! We look forward to working with them for many years to come!"

Brianna Meisenbacher

Event Coordinator, James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA

"The band was such a pleasure to work with. I hired them for a museum gala. They played from 8pm-midnight and kept the crowd moving the whole night. They have incredible energy. I had at least 5 guests ask me who was playing because they were interested in booking for future events. High recommend."

Anthony True

Groom, Elizabethtown, PA

"CCO did an absolute incredible job on our wedding day. Their organization and planning throughout our meetings and on our day helped the reception go as smoothly as it could have gone! They handled the introductions and worked with all of our requests perfectly. They even reached out to other vendors we were working with separately in order to keep everyone in the loop. We were so happy with the performance and so were all of our guests. We heard all throughout the day and for weeks after that it was the best wedding/celebration our family members and friends had ever been to! We are so thankful they were available and able to play for our wedding! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a live band performance for any event!"

"Fantastic! Thank you for making our wedding a memorable one. All of our guests raved about your performance. You really brought the energy and fun to our special day. My husband and I can’t thank you enough. Hands down the best band! Super professional, too!"

Laura Townsend

"Central City Orchestra performed at our corporate customer meeting. They were a HUGE hit! Our customers raved about how good they were and said it was the best customer event they attended. The band was so awesome I was instructed to book them asap for next year's event - and I did!"

"Let me first start by saying that our wedding would absolutely not have been as amazing as it was without Central City Orchestra! Professional from start to finish regarding the day-of process (they asked us questions about how we wanted the day to go that we hadn't even considered and were so helpful with the stressful wedding planning process) and every kind of fun under the sun on the day! My family is quite reserved and I saw a very different side of them (a very fun side of them) during our wedding! I am convinced that it is because of CCO! I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you, CCO! You made our wedding my favorite wedding that I've ever been to!"

Lauren DeAngelo

Bride, Lancaster, PA

"Absolute ever. From beginning to the end- just incredible. They took time beforehand to really get to know myself, my husband and our families in order to make our wedding the most enjoyable night possible. Katie even came to our venue ahead of time to meet with us and our wedding coordinator- making sure I did not have to do a thing on our wedding day. They took care of everything and it went so smoothly! They threw a complete party- We still have people telling us on a daily basis what a blast they had at our wedding- I give so much credit to our band! They are not only a party, but they made the night very personal and special for us as well. They kept the party going all night long- playing music that every age group loved. Dancing with my husband and my dad to a song we picked and they learned meant so much to us - a moment I’ve looked forward to my whole life. I just cannot say enough good things about Central City- I cannot wait to follow them around to other events! I am beyond grateful for all they did on the most wonderful day!"

"You NEED this band for your wedding. From the start Katie and Amy were an absolute pleasure to deal with - they are professional, easy to communicate with, kind, and a ton of fun! All of our guests have been talking non stop about how much they loved the band. Incredibly talented musicians and vocalists. I highly recommend booking them ASAP!!!"

Lisa Gdowik

Bride, Philadelphia, PA

"BEST WEDDING BAND EVER. Central City Orchestra literally brought the roof down on our perfect day. We had a SURPRISE wedding and they were absolutely amazing, they got sound check done early so as not to give the surprise away to guests who were just arriving, they hid in the ballroom until cocktail was over and helped surprise our guests right along with us. They played from the heart and it became more than just music - it became a feeling and all of our guests experienced it. I just got married - and I am looking for reasons to throw another party and have them come out again!"

Stefanie Allison

Bride, Williampsort, PA

"CCO Was a dream come true! They were non stop energy and we had so many compliments from our guests and non stop dancing!! I would highly recommend them to anyone! Katie helped me find the perfect playlist for our wedding and even assisted in offering suggestions for other vendors! We wish we could relive this day over again- thank you CCO!!"

Jessica McLaughlin

Bride, Mechanicsburg, PA

"Where do I even start- CCO was amazing/perfect/so much fun! Working with Katie was a breeze and she really made sure that she knew exactly what we wanted. All of the band members are very talent and sound great together. They also played a great mix of music that kept all of our guest dancing. You would be crazy not to book them!"

Gale Zorzorpian

Mother of the Groom, Fairfield, PA

"OMG!!! CCO is the best!!! So much work goes into being a professional wedding orchestra and Central City Orchestra takes it over the top!!! I can not imagine there is any other band that could be any better. Their planning, attention to detail, ease of coordinating plus of course, the performance by these fabulous talents, makes any reception a huge success! Everything else (venue, food, flowers, decorations) doesn't even matter and pales by comparison to their dynamic presence! Thank you again and again and again XOXOXOXO"

Nancy Husser

Mother Of The Bride, Elizabethtown, PA

"I had Central City Orchestra perform at our daughters wedding and they were fantastic. They listened to our requests, made other suggestions that were very helpful and when they performed, they were very engaging with the attendees. They kept the reception going strong all night. Professional, professional, professional. I would highly recommend them for any event".
