Chris Fischer
Countryside Golf and Country Club

“I have been planning events and hiring bands for a long time and can honestly say that no band has ever come close to providing the kind of experience that The Dee Dee Wilde Band did this past Saturday night.  My club of mostly retirees was at one point bouncing up and down like a Miami night club, a sight I never thought I’d see!  The interaction by the band with our members was infectious and kept the dance floor full all night.  The play list was perfect, with dance standards from the past and present and they really blew me away by adding a few Country music covers.  I have lost count of the number of compliments and rave reviews that I have already received from my members.  They literally are now counting the days until they will be back!”

Lillian Rodriguez
Wedding, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort
“I couldn’t have been happier with Resort Talent and Entertainment!  From the moment we met Jan, her professionalism impressed me.  This was a destination wedding and could have been very unnerving to put my trust in vendors away from home.  Instead, the entertainment was the easiest part of my day.”
Esther Owusu
Wedding, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort
“Jan was always available and professional during our planning stages.  Her feedback and suggestions were helpful and she made excellent recommendations based on our needs and budget.  Jan doesn’t just sign you up with a musician; she follows through and makes sure everything runs smoothly.  Our wedding was flawless!

“Jan, the circus was wonderful and comments ranged from “Best Ever Event” to “It was Wonderful!”  As expected, guests of all ages enjoyed the event.  Thank you for all you did and for the unexpected “extras”!  It was so appreciated.  Hopefully this will become an annual tradition plus you will get future business from the Waldorf Astoria and other Edward Jones offices.”
Heidi Frederick
Ronald McDonald House Charities
“Jan – you did it again!  What rave reviews we received regarding the band you booked for our Ronald McDonald House Annual Storybook Ball!  Definitely the best band we have had in the fourteen years that I have been chairing this event.  The Ronald McDonald House fundraiser was a great success.  Many thanks!”

    I would highly recommend Jan as an event planner and to book all entertainment.  She has vast knowledge of the talent on both the east and west coast of Florida and provided us with many wonderful options for our daughter's wedding, all within our budget.  Jan is wonderful and we will use Resort Talent and Entertainment again in the future!
  • Jon Tryon
    Wedding, Naples Private Club
    The Dee Dee Wilde Band was terrific!  My family and friends danced and sang until we could hardly move.  Not only could Dee Dee sing like a bird, but their sax musician was fabulous!  Jan, you did everything we asked and could have needed for our wedding.  We would hire you and that band again in a flash!
  • Kim and Grant Henderson
    Wedding, Bay Colony Beach Club
    Jan, you were professional, responsive, and you were incredibly wonderful to work with.  We felt like you understood what we wanted and provided the exact service that best fit what we were looking for.  Also, you gave us very competitive pricing and we felt like we were  given the best deal possible.  We highly recommend you to anyone needing entertainment!
  • Amy Meyers
    Wedding, Naples Yacht Club
    Everything was flawless each night – the Jazz Trio on Friday, the String Ensemble and the Band on Saturday.  We rocked all night and wouldn't do anything differently.  Jan, you were a superstar - such a fantastic coordinator and so detail oriented. We had the best night of our lives and the music really made the day come alive!  Thank you!
  • Celie Stumm
    Wedding, Naples Private Club
    Jan: I cannot thank you enough for all your help and taking the INCREDIBLE PICTURES!  This was such a treat to look at the next day!  You were so nice to do that and we cannot thank you enough for all of your help with the booking of our entertainment for our wedding day.  You all did a wonderful job and were a pleasure to work with!
  • Tee Baur
    Private Party, Naples Private Club
    Jan, the Moroccan party you designed was fantastic and the belly dancers and snake charmer were awesome.  I really appreciated the team effort that everyone made to make the evening a success.  Thanks for being on-site to help make sure everything was just right!
  • Pamela Gluckman
    Wedding, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort
    Regarding the very specific pieces of music I wanted at each specific phase of our occasion, Jan got it all right!  And not only that, she was very helpful in suggesting entertainment for our children who felt immediately that they were a big part of our wedding.  Jan made it all so easy that we wish we could do it all over again!
