The best part of having gone through the gauntlet that is planning and executing a wedding (aside from being married to the love of your life, of course) is all the compliments you get after the fact. Genuine compliments that let you know all the trouble and ALL the money was worth it. It feels really great to know your friends and family enjoyed themselves on your big day. Well, at least that’s true for me and of all the compliments, critiques and comments I’ve received about my big day was how fun our reception band was and how incredibly talented their lead singer is. I cannot recommend Serafia and her guys enough. They crushed it, plain and simple. They were professional and easy to work with. Young and old, hip and not so much… they had everyone on the dance floor and having a blast. Seriously, they had my mother-in-law doing the worm… the WORM people!?! They learned sentimental songs to us and even emceed reception events like the garter and bouquet toss. They really are so great. If you are considering a wedding band, you can’t go wrong with Serafia; trust me, I plan events for a living.

I have watched Serafia grow as an artist and a professional for many years. She is the real deal, classy, talented, beautiful, sensitive to the client's goals and flexible. And she can turn right around and show her edgy side and get right out there when the venue warrants. Her career is growing all the time. Corporate and social clients will very much appreciate the rare abilities of Serafia.

Serafia’s performance left our guests in awe of her beautiful voice. Many of us were in tears as she sang Etta James’ “At Last” for our first dance.
Not only can Serafia bring the house down with her singing skills, she also brings a warm and friendly personality to the event. I would recommend anyone looking for a talented songstress to consider her.

The Blood Center of Central Texas hired Serafia and her guitarist for our KVUE blood drive promotion on September 3, 2015. She added so much warmth and talent to our blood drive! The donors were tapping their toes, smiling and really getting into her music. Her voice is amazing, not to mention her warm, charismatic personality. She is a polished professional and a joy to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for your event. She lights up the room!

Serafia and Dan performed at my daughter's engagement party as a surprise to my daughter and her fiancé. She brought beautiful vocals and a sense of warmth to the evening. From 21 to 65 year olds, all were entertained. I am extremely lucky to have found such wonderful talent. In fact, we will be hiring her for the wedding. THANK YOU so much for making this night special, you are truly a multi-talented artist!!! Thanks to Dan for playing his instrument so beautifully as well. Hire her, you will be wowed by her amazing talent and her amazing voice!!!

Serafia did a wonderful job for our wedding. One of the most important things for our wedding was the music. I love 1920s jazz and wanted someone singing it, who could portray an accurate representation of the music. There are very few people who understand the feel of that style of music. We met Serafia when we researched wedding singers who might be able to accomplish this, and she instantly understand what we were going for. I was so excited to have someone else to talk to about the music that I am passionate about with! Serafia got a list of songs from me that I wanted for the evening and they rehearsed far in advance, which I was very impressed with. The evening wouldn't have been complete without her tying in the feel of the music. I cannot say enough good things about her and her band. We will definitely be booking them for anything we have in the future that requires awesome musical talent. Thank you Serafia!

Serafia and Daniel played at our Christmas Party last year and their music was awesome. It really set the tone for our holiday event, as a wonderful variety of soft classics along with collections from various artists made it a fabulous event. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a special group to play at their party.

What a nice experience working with Serafia in a professional recording environment; she delivers on many levels. This is a very talented person and I can only see a continued ladder of success. In the studio, flaws are much more apparent than any other medium; the "tape doesn't lie". And, even though in this day and age technology can erase flaws, it is a pleasure to work with someone who isn't in need of such fibbery. Give her a listen. Enjoy.

Serafia performed at two of our company events in June, and she was incredible. Our attendees loved every minute of her performances, and some of them even sang along with her. We can't wait to have Serafia perform for our group's next event!
