Cocktail Hour/Dinner Set

If you desire musical ambience as your guests arrive, during cocktail hour or as a soft accompaniment to your dinner, enjoy our quartet featuring drums, piano, bass and saxophone. Our repertoire spans almost every genre of music including soft jazz, Broadway classics, movie theme songs, easy listening pops and light Gospel standards.

You can also expand the quartet performance with some sultry vocals from one of our singers or some jazzy horns from our talented ensemble. For that special “intimate touch,” another popular option with our clients is having one of our talented keyboardists as a solo pianist.

“The quartet played during dinner and my wife, a jazz pianist herself, was literally brought to tears as she listened. Awesome!”  – Steven Kincaid, Tampa, FL

The quartet has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and on A&E, CW33, and other networks. In addition to touring and performing internationally, DSQ has played “at home” for Presidents Obama and Bush, and the NBA and NFL organizations. They have opened for artists such as Air Supply and Kenny G, and have played alongside Josh Groban, Chicago and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Comprised of violinists Tatiana Glava and Melissa Priller, violist Ian Zanca and cellist Gaston Colloca, DSQ takes you on a journey to the nexus of classical music and modern pop where artists like Beethoven and Bono collide.

“DSQ ended their performance with a cover of Guns N’ Rose’s “Sweet Child of Mine” that just floored everyone in the building.” – Red Carpet Crash Review

Bride & Groom Intro/Exit

You just got married. Doesn’t that deserve a super cool introduction? Consider horns or a drum role before you officially make your first public appearance as man and wife. Or, perhaps you have a horn or drum role as you head out to the car to make your exit.

  • All I can say is WOW!! Simply Irresistible played at my daughter’s wedding in April and I have been to five weddings since then and everyone is still talking about how our band was the best they have EVER heard! The dance floor was packed from the first note until the last when we were “literally” shut down at 2 am. Nobody wanted to leave!! The dance floor was so crowded, the videographer said it was the very tightest dance floor she had ever tried to video. The band’s high energy matched my daughter’s personality exactly and made the wedding PERFECT! I wish we had another wedding to plan so we could hire this band again….we are thinking maybe for an anniversary party! Thank you, thank you for the fabulous job you guys did and for being so great with the guests! You are simply AMAZING, simply IRRESISTIBLE, and simply THE BEST!!

  • Concerts in the Round was a huge success this year…Simply Irresistible clearly stood above the rest as the fan favorite.  It was like watching a national act that you would see at a big arena play party music for three hours non stop.  Unreal!  I didn’t want to leave for fear of missing a song.  Clearly SI is one of the best bands in the country.

    Bob Durkin Concerts in the Round
  • Simply Irresistible is so incredible. I seriously could not imagine a better band. The band was very friendly, and we could tell that they really love to entertain. They played to the crowd and definitely got everyone up and moving. Thank you so much for the best night of our lives!

    Jennifer Wedding Guest
  • I cannot begin to explain how incredible I (and everyone) thought Simply Irresistible was this past Saturday. I think everyone would have stayed out dancing hours more if they could! Everything was literally perfect. The entire band and singers were amazing and nothing but professional in how they conducted themselves. We do lots of events all over the world and Simply Irresistible will certainly be on our radar for all our large events. I have already passed your information and rave reviews to our various events people around the world. I could not have imagined a better band for this wedding or any event. You all have something very special going on. I keep watching all the videos I took!  Please pass my thanks along to everyone. I didn’t get the chance to thank Ronnie and everyone in person. Thanks again so so so much!

  • Ronnie, I just had to sit down and take a minute to send you a warm and heartfelt thank you!!! Simply Irresistible’s performance April 29 for Circle Of Life was just incredible. The medleys, the musicianship, the vocalists and harmonies, the dancers, the intensity…Wow you guys just rocked!! The client is thrilled and we ALL look forward to next year!!

    Danny Ward Ward & Ames Special Events
  • Simply Irresistible and Party on the Moon performed together at our event in October. The girls were amazing and the entire group wowed the guests. I think we could have left off the food and drinks and our guests would have still been intoxicated off these two (2) outstanding bands alone!

    Barry West AIFD / Blossoms Events
  • The band was fabulous. And so personable!!! They sang a special song that we had asked them to sing for the honoree’s birthday- and it was just perfect and not part of their usual repertoire. Thanks so much for arranging to have Simply Irresistible play for this party. They are awesome!!!!!!

  • Simply Irresistible was out of this world at the Heart Ball Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Trump and Andre Leon Tally loved them. Ronnie and his team truly made the evening very special. I will happily recommend them to any of my colleagues around the country.

  • I can’t even begin to put it into words how amazing Simply Irresistible was last weekend. People cannot stop talking about it. Everyone wanted to know who they were so expect to get a lot of phone calls in the upcoming years when people start getting engaged! They literally made the night so special. They were also so sweet to me and super personal.

    Virginia Bride
  • Your recommendation for Simply Irresistible was the best. They rocked the house down for 4 straight hours and we all had a ball. We have good friends that found a spot on the dance floor after the bride/groom dance and they swear they never left it! Thank you for keeping our booties waggin’ and our dance shoes movin’!!!!!!

    Deidra Smith
  • Simply Irresistible played at our wedding in Nashville, and we absolutely LOVED them! I want to thank the band for working with me in the months leading up to the wedding and being so helpful.  I can’t tell you how many people said how much they loved the band. They were SO energetic, SO fun, and they did a fabulous job of keeping the party going and getting everyone dancing and having a really fun time!

  • I wanted to be certain that your company and team is aware of the true gem that you have with this band. Please continue to recommend them to our brides, and we look forward working with them again in the future.” (Simply Irresistible)

  • A rare combination of awesome talent, nice people, beautiful costuming and perfect song selection. (Simply Irresistible)

    Sharon Riley RSVP Events
  • In all my years at Cree, our team cannot remember ever having so much fun. With the three beautiful, need-to-be-recording SUPERSTAR ladies plus those rockin’ guys, the band (Simply Irresistible) was as good as any national act I have seen. THEY ARE JUST AWESOME! Enjoyed Much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alice Stone-McClary CREE, Inc.
  • While our expectations were high, this talented group (Simply Irresistible) exceeded them. They were the consummate professionals both on and off the stage and will be the point of remembrance for this occasion. If a Bride and Groom want to make an unforgettable wedding memory, this is the group to have.
