Reviews

“The band for our wedding was fantastic. The whole Simcha was “leibedig” exciting and energetic. I hope Barock continues to entertain and create great music for years to come. Thank you for all the other little extras you threw in to make our Simca so Special.”

-Ely & Miriam

“As you know the music sets the tone for an affair. The mood that BaRock created was just perfect for us. YOu and your band were wonderful. I truly appreciate the effort and the time that you spent with us understanding what we wanted, and guiding us in planning the party/ your suggestions were “Right on”.

“The band sounded great. The size of the bans and their composition were perfect, and each of the musicians was super. The background music was truly background music – always enjoyable, and never overwhelming. The dance music had a real energy, and the Klezmer set was wonderful. You are truly a professional, and we are extremely grateful.”

-Ephraim & Chava

“Thank you for all of your efforts, patience, and caring for our daughter’s wedding. Everything came off GREAT! We’re still getting compliments on the music. Our friends were really impressed with the music all evening; during the smorgasbord, chuppah, after the chuppah, and the dinner. Your staff extended themselves to make this a special day that “came off” without any hitches.”

-Kalman & Barbara

“We would like ott thank you for an excellent job at our wedding! You guys were a hit – we had a great time, our guests had a great time and we appreciate your help in making our Simcha such an amazing event.”

-Orly & Eric

“We would just like to thank you for the wonderful job that you did at our wedding. Everyone has been telling us how much fun they had at the wedding and you played a huge role in that. People truly had fun dancing and “boogying” and some even commented on the pleasant volume of the music and the great song selections. The first time that we met with you way back in September, you mentioned that you never missed a wedding because of snow. At the time we thought that sounded great but we didn’t think it would ever apply to us. We are happy to say that despite our wedding taking place during the worst blizzard in New York City history, your record still holds strong. Your professionalism allayed our worst fears when you called the evening before the wedding to assure us you would be there the next day when they were still predicting just a foot of snow. We were further impressed when we woke up to over two feet of snow that you called again to confirm that WE didn’t cancel the wedding because YOU were ready to go. We can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond in circumstances that were out of your control. Thank you for turning what could have been a disastrous day into something special and memorable for reasons other than the snow.”

-Stacy & Seth

“How do you adequately thank someone who turns your Simcha into hours of magical joy?/ I don’t think that there is anything I could say that would do justice to the job that you and your musicians did at our children’s wedding. Everyone has asked us how we found you. Your music selection, the virtuosity with which it was performed, the enormous range of Barokc’s repertoire, and the intangible extra that you brought to the music is something I cannot adequately capture by descriptive words or even by listening to tape. I will always be grateful to you and your contributions to our Simcha.”

-Meyer & Ellen

“I am sure you have heard this before but we have never experienced a more beautiful, spirited, and enjoyable musical contribution to a Simcha than that which you provided at our wedding. Whether it was the music that we chose for the Ceremony, the truly dazzling collection of music that you played during the dancing and dinner, or the perfect (and delightful) volume at which all of it was played. I wish that I had every moment of your music to listen to over and over again. It was an unparalleled performance and helped to make our wedding one that our guests will remember always. Many, many, many thanks to you and each of your musicians.”

-Michael & Tovah

“Thank you for the fantastic music your band created. Thanks for the spirit you generated, enabling the guests to express themselves by participating in spirited dancing, merry-making, and achieving the most wonderful Simcha. The variety of music and tempos prevented monotony and was perfectly appropriate for all the occasions of the wedding.”

-Daniel & Lorena

“I wanted to let you know that your band greatly contributed to making our wedding a special and memorable occasion. Your wonderful group of professionals knows how to play! Each different part of the day – ceremony, cocktail hour, reception had just the right feel, thanks to your musicians. We had so many compliments from our guests and relatives about the band that I thought you should know how much we appreciated your efforts.”

-Fern L.

“I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional a cappella singers you arranged for my son’s bar mitzvah. Their performance was truly outstanding and added a unique touch to the celebration. The harmonies during the davening was nothing short of amazing, and I’ve received countless compliments on how much they enhanced the overall atmosphere of the bar mitzvah. The Zemiros were especially beautiful and set the perfect tone for the party. Thank you once again for contributing to the success of this special occasion.”

-David & Nancy

“Thank you so much for adding a distinct and unique touch to our wedding party. In addition to the great big band sound that you have personally developed, I greatly appreciate the personal handling of all of our, sometimes very sensitive requests. We were also the beneficiaries of your generosity in delivering even over and above contractual obligations and again it is most appreciated by all of us. I truly appreciate your advice to add the enhanced sound system to ensure the volume is appropriate at all times. Thank you for everything.”

-Marc & Fran

“Thank you so much for all of your enthusiasm, encouragement, and help as we [planned music for this year’s dinner. Our 850+ attendees have come to expect a certain level of professionalism and elegance at our dinners. One of the facets that least to this glamour is the music, and from the time you started the play for us, a few years ago, you have helped mold and maintain the excitement of the evening. We are most appreciative of your involvement.”

Aggie S. – Sinai Schools

“Thank you so much, once again, for providing such an excellent show at our wedding. It has been nearly 10 months and the memories of the music are still fresh in our minds. We so appreciate all the effort you put into the performance, the musicians, and the music recording. Don’t underestimate the power of each Simcha you perform at. Just recently we attended a friend’s wedding where you performed and just to be there listening to you and your band brought all those wonderful memories back again. Thank you so much for making our wedding a night to remember forever!”

-Chemmie & Yaeli

“We are so happy that we had the privilege to have you and your orchestra play at our children’s wedding. Our entire family is indebted to you and your contribution to our Simchah. Our Simcha was enhanced by your professionalism and artistry as musicians, Each one of your musicians displayed their personality which was evidenced in their enthusiasm. You received rave reviews from everyone. Of course when you left the handstand to play on the dance floor, playing with the joy of classic Klezmer style ( I will always remember dancing with your clarinet player as he played), you added a dimension of novelty that very few orchestras would have dared. We can’t recommend them enough!”

-Phil & Shelly

“I’ve heard from numerous sources, from guests of all stripes, that they really thought the band was great. My husband enjoyed the jazz, my sister-in-law enjoyed the Charleston, and Rebbetzin Rosensweig enjoyed all of it. Friends and relatives echoed those sentiments. That means you covered all the bases. I’, glad to hear members of the band enjoyed themselves too as they entertained us. I have but one son to give to a daughter-in-law, to paraphrase Nathan Hale. The next best thing I can do is recommend you warmly to my friends and their eligible sons and daughters.”

-Goldies M.

“I wanted to thank you again for the outstanding job that you and your band did at our children’s wedding. Many people told us that it was one of the most leiberdig and enjoyable smachot they had ever attended, and a large part of that is attributable to you and your band. The fact that so many people were still on the dance floor as the clock struck midnight attests to how great you and your and was. Thanks again for making the night so memorable.”

-Yossi & Shira

Just a note of appreciation regarding your superb participation in our numerous concert events. As Avraham Fried; ‘s musical conductor, among others, I am always at ease when you are supplying the musician. As you know putting together a large orchestra of the best musicians that New York has to offer is a very special talent and you have done so, time and again flawlessly. I look forward to our continuing professional relationship

-Steve “Simcha” BIll

“We wanted to thank you so much for the great job you did conducting our music for the wedding. People were thrilled with the band and the Simcha Leiner show! Everyone contributed to how great the music was. It made our Simcha great. You are a pleasure to work with.”

-Jacob & Rachel

“We had an amazing experience with Barock Orchestra! Their unique blend of traditional Jewish melodies with contemporary twists set the perfect tone for our celebration. From emotional ceremony moments to lively dancing, BaRock’s energy and passion

made our day unforgettable. Working with Irina and Tony was a breeze—they understood our vision and made everything stress-free. Their sound was vibrant and lively, yet perfectly balanced, allowing for easy conversation even during the dance music. If you want a talented, passionate wedding band, look no further than BaRock Orchestra. Thanks for making our day magical!”

“The Pinnacle Performers” “It’s hard to fathom that we were fortunate to have the most EXCEPTIONAL BAND in the entire country perform at our wedding! The entire venue was buzzing with energy, and not a single person had a voice the next morning – everyone danced throughout the ENTIRE night. I found myself torn between staying on the dance floor and getting another drink – a delightful predicament! If there was a ticket price, I’d be willing to pay a PREMIUM to witness Barock live at a concert..After attending numerous weddings in NYC featuring the so-called ‘top-rated bands,’ Barock Orchestra has undoubtedly set the bar as the absolute best.”
