-- "We knew when we heard you that we wanted you for our wedding.  You guys rock!  You played your hearts out and it was fabulous end of our 'knight.'  Fondly, Laura and Emmett." (Bride and Groom, September, 2014)

--  "Best wedding Ev-ah (but you already knew that!). Working on letting the rest of the world know!" (Mother of Bride, August, 2013)
 
-- "Rob, had a great time at the wedding. Thanks to you and the guys for making the night so special. I think you measure the success of a band, by the amount of people on the dance floor and it never emptied." (Father of the Groom, August, 2013)

 

-- Check out this blog from the Migis Lodge (on Sebago Lake) where we played a wedding in October, 2012. Beautiful location, wonderful families & friends, and we think it's safe to say that everyone had a great time. Hear for yourself by clicking on the blue "blog" above, and then watch Sarah & Ryan's video.

 

-- "We had sooo much fun too.  Your music was amazing and everyone loved dancing.  I saw people dance that I never thought would be caught on the dance floor.  We appreciated how you embraced our whole family and made all our guests feel comfortable and welcome at the wedding.  We will certainly recommend the Delta Knights to our friends.  Thank you and we so enjoyed getting to know each of you."  (Bride, June, 2012)
 

-- "These guys just played my wedding this past Saturday and they burned the barn down (our reception was in fact in a barn) with their awesomeness. I've never seen a group of guys have so much fun while playing a wedding, nor I have ever heard anyone cover The Band quite like they do (I've been playing Ophelia and The Shape I'm In on my iPod non stop and can't stop smiling). I can't recommend you guys enough. And thanks so much for being a part of me and my now wife's special day. None of our guests can stop talking about you -- and they shouldn't -- it was beyond perfect and so awesome. If I'm ever back in New England I'm going to hunt you guys down and make sure I see one of your shows. THANKS SO MUCH!" (Groom, September, 2011)

 

 

-- Hi Rob and Crew!  You guys were great at our wedding!  Thank you for playing to the crowd.  We had a blast and many of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was.  Thank you again, Matt & Casey (Bride & Groom, September, 2010)

 

 

--"Rob and the Delta Knights - you guys rock!!! Kevin and I had the time of our lives dancing to your music at our wedding - all my friends loved you also - I bet you could tell how much fun you made our  celebration!!! - if you ever need a recommendation just ask -- Thanks again - Jeanie" (Bride, June, 2010)

 

 

--We're just returning from a few days away and you all were at the top of my list to write to, to thank you for making our night flow, rock, and SO much fun!!!   Everyone at brunch the next morning had lots of compliments about the wedding, but the one ALL mentioned was the band, the BAND, THE BAND :)  We couldn't agree more.  You all had aunts, uncles, cousins, mentors, and other folks we never expected to see cut a rug on the dance floor, out there shaking it down!  One of our favorite moments of the night was sitting back at our table and just watching everyone move out there to SUCH great music--it is a memory I will have with me for the rest of my life.  Getting home and receiving your note, well, we just can't help feeling even better that the feeling was mutual.  I've been at those weddings where things just never seem to quite pick up on the dance floor, and it is such a gift that ours ROCKED every minute you all were playing.  Thank you for an unforgettable evening for all involved!
Best, Erika and Peter" (Bride and Groom, October, 2009)

 

 

-- "I could not have been happier with the music at our wedding. They are real musicians but also know how to get the crowd moving and having fun. And they were so nice, they even lent a guitar to a friend who wanted to perform a special song for us. Highly highly recommended." (Bride and Groom, September, 2009)

 

 

--"I am so glad that you and the rest of the band had a great night playing at our wedding.  We are so happy that we chose the Delta Knights!  Our guests told us that they loved the music and from our pictures, it's obvious that they had a great time dancing.  Thank you for playing quietly during dinner.  So many people commented on how nice it was to be able to listen to music while having a conversation!  Our first dance worked out great.  Currier and I had a blast dancing too!  I only wish we could have had another hour to dance more!!  We want to thank you for doing a great job and for being so wonderful to work with throughout our wedding planning.  I  really appreciated all the time you spent with me on the phone  answering all of my questions, and your attentiveness to all of our needs. Best, Ilana" (Bride, June, 2008)

 

 

--"You did a fabulous job!!  We LOVED what you did with our first dance.  People were coming up to us afterwards and saying what a great song and what a great band.   Heidi, the event planner at the Stonehurst, told us that all of the guests really enjoyed the music as well.   Cheers, Rebecca" (Bride, 2008)

 

--“Matt and I have been meaning to write to say thank you.  You guys did an unbelievable job.  Our guests had an absolute blast dancing and are still raging about (how) great the music was and how much fun they had. Everything went perfect and the Delta Knights played a huge role in the success of our wedding. Also, thank you for being such a pleasure to work with; we really enjoyed getting to know you.  Please pass our gratitude on to the rest of the band! 

Sincerely, Lindsay and Matt” (Bride & Groom, October, 2007)

(And from the Wedding Planner) -- "I wanted to thank you and your band for such a great job last Saturday at the wedding.  We all provided a night the guests will be talking about for years to come.  A pleasure to work with you. Patti" (October, 2007)

 

 

--“I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to have you at our party on Friday night for Will and Julie.  Your music is really one of our best and most lasting memories of the whole weekend.  We have had so many compliments about your music – It just made the whole evening more special.  I do hope our paths will cross soon again as we have become definitely Delta Knights groupies! Thank you so much for not only being so talented but also such a nice addition.

Best wishes, from Penny & Walter” (Parents of the Bride, August, 2007)

 

--“Jon and I wanted to write to thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception.  All the guests have given you rave reviews!  You really made our reception everything we could have hoped for!  What a fun night!  Please feel free to use us as a reference! 

Best, Kate” (Bride, July, 2007)

 

--“The Delta Knights did an amazing job performing at our wedding at Searle’s Castle, New Hampshire.  The band's performance got everyone on to the dance floor well into the night, helping us extend our special day as long as possible.  Guests were having so much fun dancing that they didn't want to leave and we are still getting compliments on the music!  The band played the perfect mix of songs and there was something for everyone.  I will forever have the memory of my Dad getting down to "Mustang Sally".  In addition to being great performers, The Delta Knights are also most accommodating, easy going, friendly, and very affordable.  Don't waste your time checking out other bands.  You won't find a better one.” Steph and Oscar (Bride & Groom, August, 2006)
 

-- "We had an amazing time at the reception.  Thank you, and the Delta Knights, for an incredible performance.  We received so many compliments on your group’s abilities.  Mike really enjoyed hearing “NY, NY!”  Mike and I would love to be included on your reference list.  Thanks again for traveling down to Jamestown and rocking the night away! 

Peace and Love, Sarah Van Sleet”   (Bride, September, 2005)

 

--"Ben and I would like to thank you and the band for making our wedding day such a night to remember.  We could not have been happier and the music was perfect.  Our guests had the best time and really enjoyed your music. Thank you for being so helpful.  We couldn't have picked a better band. 

Thank you, Cate Gaynor" (Bride, July, 2005)

 

--"We loved your band.  Booking you was one of the best decisions we made about Marie's wedding.  If you ever need an endorsement or want to use me as a reference, feel free.  I think if Pat's Peak hadn't closed us down, people would have danced for hours more.  Best wishes, Carol Swiech" (A happy Mother-of-the-Bride, 2004

 

 

--"Hi Rob!  I just wanted to thank you guys for doing such a fabulous job at the wedding!  All of my guests were complimenting you guys the next day and everyone just had a blast.  If you guys ever need us for a recommendation, please feel free to contact me.  Thanks again for making our night so much fun!!!"
(Julia Tiedge, A happy Bride, 2004)
 

-- "If you are looking for a fun and lively band that will get everyone out on the dance floor, then the Delta Knights are your band.  I can't tell you how many of our guests raved about the music at our wedding!    I would highly recommend the Delta Knights - they were friendly, professional, easy to work with and affordable." (Jean Clark, Bride, 2004)
 

-- "Wow, did we luck out by hiring the Delta Knights for our wedding!  We were a little overwhelmed with wedding band choices and took a leap of faith based on your demo CD...  super responsive, accommodating, easy to work with during the planning process... showed up right on time, got set up and ready to go with no problems...very relaxed and easy!  I was nervous that our guests would be bored at the reception, but as soon as you started playing, the party took off.  What a great feeling to see our parents, aunts and uncles, friends, and even some of the staff out on the dance floor letting loose with some hilarious and never-seen-before dance moves.  It was clear that you guys really love what you do, and your enthusiasm was contagious.  We got the feeling that this wasn't just another gig for you guys, but that you genuinely had fun and were part of the party.  I completely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a great, responsible, completely fun and danceable band that doesn't feel like a schmaltzy and canned "wedding band."  Thank you guys so much for making our wedding one of the funnest nights of our lives.  Best, Emily & Ben Butler, Boston, MA" (Bride and Groom, 2004)
 

-- "Thank you for making our day so special and so personal.  We appreciate all of the time and attention to detail in making everything perfect.

Best wishes, Todd and Beth" (Bride & Groom, 1999)

-- "Thanks so much for the awesome evening of music at our Moonlight Masquerade.  Everyone was just thrilled with how great you all were.  Loved you playing behind your head!  And the costume changes.  Thanks again, and let the other guys know how much we all loved the show. Best, Judy" (Freeport Community Players Board of Directors, October, 2015)


-- "That's why we love you Rob!  You are a true professional and people who work with you are too!" (Manager, Fireside Inn, 2014)


-- "Hey guys, We caught your gig in Scarborough last night. Despite the rain, I
think it was a good show. Good set. You sounded great, and the 2 new guys added more "power" to the group. You'll be able to expand your song list x10 fold. Hope to catch you again, soon. TC and rock on Playas!!" (Fan, 2013)

 

 

--"Dear Rob,
               Wow !  Where to begin?   You guys really, truly delivered a virtuoso performance in every respect.  It was spectacular, straight up! The Delta Knights are by far the best musicians we have enjoyed dancing to in years.
        Donna and I have been teaching lessons for quite a few years now and most of the folks in that hall were students of ours, past or present.  Donna and I were truly touched by that tribute Waltz, the kind words , and the recognition we were given at this dance.   Thank you for that gorgeous Waltz.
      We have danced to a lot of local bands and not so local bands in our years of dancing and teaching dance.  The magnificent Knights treated us all to one of the best evenings of wonderful variety, and balance of genres we have ever enjoyed.   It wove a perfect tapestry of pleasure for everyone present.

     I am partial to the addition of a sax player to that combination of musicians.  I don't know where Darren learned his craft but he is, hands down, among the three or four very best sax players I have heard live.  His notes blow true precise and always in exquisite control, while reaching towards the edges of what the instrument can deliver.   Donna loves listening for the bass guitar, as do I, and it is a huge benefit to have one so accomplished as the Knights do, with Sandy.  We so much appreciate the incredibly high skill level shown, and on top of that, this man has an even more impressive voice.  He has a wonderful range.  Fact is, all the voices were great, and the attention you show to harmonies just makes it the best of the best.  The melody and voice of the band in lead guitar was just magnificent , the likeness to Belushi not a distraction at all.  

     Rob, I want you each to know you were truly appreciated and obviously you each delivered a tremendous performance.  Fact is,  you are not only each great at what you do, but there is a tightness, collective betterment, and obviously superior team effort in what you deliver.   There's an obvious compatibility and friendship that shows through in the music.  You should each and all be very proud of what you do.  It's been a pleasure dealing with you in every respect. 
     We would dearly love to have you play for us again in the future.  Thank You all so much, Keith and Donna for DownEast Dancers" (November, 2008)

 

 

 --“On behalf of the Gorham Business & Civic Exchange, as well as all vendors and shoppers who participated in Marketplace 2007, thank you for your musical contributions which added to the success of our event.  We all enjoyed listening to your band so much both during Friday’s Reception and Saturday at the Event.  It was a real treat to have you play and we heard nothing but praise.  You really added a touch of class…!  Please accept our sincere appreciation and thank you all for braving the storm to be a part of Marketplace…!”

(Trish Moulton, President, Gorham Business and Civic Exchange, March, 2007)

 

 

-- “I just wanted to thank you and the other band members for performing at our party at the Bethel Inn.   You did a great job and we all had a lot of fun.
Sue”  (Maine Machine Products Holiday Party, 2003)

 

 

 -- "You guys were a hit!  I can't thank you enough for making the journey to Blueberry Point, and giving us a night of music and dancing to remember.  You have a great groove, and super personalities - We'd be lucky to have you back for another smokin' party!  You guys were truly amazing - a big thank you from me (and the other 45 people who had great things to say about you too!) 

Thanks again! Dolly" (Private party, 2002)

 

-- “Thank you to you and the other band members for doing such a super job for New Year's Eve at Cotter Union. Everyone loved your music and the evening was a great success.  Thanks again. I look forward to working with you again at some point in the future.”

Karen Farrar Ledger, Colby College (New Year's Party, 2002)

 

-- "We can't thank you enough for your time and talent in making our 50th Anniversary such a lively one.  Those of us who don't go dancing anymore tend to forget how much effort goes into setting up and keeping people happy - I can assure you, you did it that time!   Ever grateful, Mary and Emil" (50th Anniversary, 1999)
