Client Reviews

Southeastern Council Foundation Chair's Dinner

Marianne, Client

"The Ritz-Carlton Hotel provided me with the contact information for the Crescendo Amelia Band and I am so happy that we booked them for our event.  They are an amazing group of young musicians who truly put on the best show for groups of all ages! They were very easy to work with from beginning to end and our group thoroughly enjoyed their evening of fun and entertainment.  I will definitely invite them back for future events in the Amelia Island area."


Concours d'Elegance

Lauren Udzbinac, Client Relations Manager

RM Auctions, Ontario, Canada

“On behalf of all of us, I would like to thank you and CABB  for making our event so much fun. Our clients & staff thoroughly enjoyed your performance at our client reception. It is very clear that you are an incredibly talented, class act group of musicians.  We were looking for a way to make this event more exciting, while keeping it elegant & this was exactly what we needed.  Your level of professionalism from start to finish, was very impressive. Planning events can be very stressful, so being able to rely on you was a major relief. You almost made it too easy! Once again, thank you to you & everyone in CABB for a night we will remember!”

"The whole band was AMAZING! The crowd loved you and it was a wonderful night. We would love to have you come back again for sure. Thanks again to you and the rest of your members for putting on a fabulous show. "



Father Daughter Ball

Faith Christian Academy

"Our 15th annual ball was a huge success and it could not have happened without the big sound from Crescendo Amelia. They kept our dads and daughters on the floor all night dancing the night away. Thank you to all your band members, we'll see you next year!"

How the Big Band Stole Christmas

Cass & Wilford, Guests

 "I can't begin to tell you how much my Dad and I loved the show last night! We have already decided that it MUST be our new family holiday tradition. From the musical selections that were chosen, to the range of vocal stylings within the genre, to the fabulous surprises (swing dancers --- INSPIRED!; aerial ballet -- THRILLING!) to the wonderful rapport of the performers with each other --- it was a holiday gem for ALL ages. This was my Christmas present to my Dad and he said "no other gift will surpass it."

Strut Your Mutt Outdoor Festival

Steven Hutra, Event Director - SYM

"Your contribution as the stage band was critical to making this year’s event a huge success.  Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed your performance.  We hope to see you again in 2015!"


ACT Theatre Show

Linda McClane

Managing Director, Amelia Community Theatre

"We have had the pleasure of having Crescendo Amelia Big Band at our theatre for sold out concerts on two occasions. Band members were easy to work with, being both reliable & professional with great enthusiasm for their music. The audiences at our 170 seat theater ranged in age from children to senior citizens and all agreed that it was a terrific concert, and that they would return to hear the band again.”




A Night with the Stars

Liz Morgan, PR & Special Events

Jacksonville, Florida

"A Night With the Stars was a fundraiser for ElderSource with a retro glam Rat Pack theme, so we knew the music would really set the tone. Hiring Frank Basile & Crescendo Amelia was the best decision we could have made. These guys are super talented, professional and got everybody dancing. I will be booking them again!"

“Oh my gosh what a fun night and we thank you all so much for your great performance!! We look forward to working with you again in the upcoming years and until then, we will promote you to others in need of some great music.”




Cafe Karibo, Banquet Event

 Justin Brunken, Event Planner

CED, Nebraska

“You guys were one of the best bands I have seen in a long time.  The singer you had was amazing, including every individual was fantastic in their own right. I was looking for the right band for the occasion and I found the only one, I am sure, in the area that fit, and that made me look good!


Fan Review

Pam & her dog Lulu, #1 and #2 fans

They are a wonderful group of musicians who are all very personable, warm and very talented. They take the time to be hospitable and make you feel at home. Thank You Crescendo Amelia Big Band for making my life more spectacular & fun! You guys are awesome & I am proud to call you my friends. Lulu and I get so excited to hear CABB play at the "Art Walks" and various out door events in Downtown Jacksonville and other venues in the city."
