More Testimonials

“I was very fortunate to have had DC Music Entertainment and the Bemcha band play music for our wedding ceremony and reception. Pablo and the band were extremely generous with their time — including helping guide us through designing the program of music for the ceremony and in learning our “first dance” song for the reception. The band was extremely patient and flexible while on-site — including accommodating a last minute reshuffle of the ceremony music. The band even went the extra mile to provide backup music to a Bulgarian song performed by one our my relatives. I could not be more happy with both the level of service that Pablo provided and the professionalism of the band. I’m pleased to give DC Music Entertainment and the Bemcha band my highest recommendation.”

-M. Koparova – Bride

“Bemcha Delivers! We strongly recommend Pablo Gabriel, and DC Music Entertainment to anyone planning a special event. First and foremost, the four-piece ensemble, Bemcha, that played for our wedding was outstanding. Each musician complemented each other, and put his own spin on a mix of timeless jazz classics, modern pop songs, latin jazz, and even a fantastic rendition of Bob Seger’s “We Got Tonight.” The arrangements and timing for both the ceremony and the reception were extremely well thought through yet flexible enough to adjust to what the audience seemed to enjoy listening to. Perhaps more importantly, DC Music Entertainment delivered a polished and professional product on time in the most unusual circumstances. Our wedding occurred during Washington D.C.’s worst blizzard in modern times, yet the musicians arrived at the venue early and ready to play despite the fact that the Washington metro area virtually shut down for an entire weekend. We were grateful for the effort each musician put forward in this regard. DC Music Entertainement exceeded our expectations in every conceivable way, and for that reason we wholeheartedly recommend Pablo and his entire crew for any wedding or special event.”
– Sincerely, Greg & Jodi Louer (Bride & Groom)

“My Law Firm was sick of the same old entertainment and looking for something different. We found it with the Bemcha band! Bemcha switched seamlessly between Latin jazz, salsa, straight ahead jazz and more…it was awesome, they were very professional and we highly recommend the band.”
-Kelley G. Keener, Marketing Service Specialist, Ober Kaler

“The Bemcha band was amazing! They rocked the festival and really got the crowd moving and shaking. Their sound was unique and and they weaved in and out of many genres. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality and professional ensemble”
-Janet Lugo-Tafur, Executive Director, AdamsMorgan Main Street Group

“I booked the Bemcha band to perform for our school auction. We hired Bemcha to perform Brazilian bossa nova and samba music to compliment the theme of our event. The band was fantastic and when attendees of the event requested salsa, merengue and mambo, Bemcha was able to accommodate their request. The band was early, professional and packed the dance floor all night long. We highly recommend Bemcha and Grabielismo Productions.”
-Sharon Cassidy, Lowell School Auction Event Chair
