Testimonials

  • “The band did great.  The crowd loved them, they played the perfect mix of music!  Mother Nature didn’t cooperate at the end of the night, but all in all it was an awesome show.” Kristy-Rivertown Days 2016
  • “Things went really well!  We got a lot of positive comments from people, and they all said they want them back again!” Stephanie-New London Water Days 2016
  • “Jonah & the Whales were terrific! There was the threat of severe weather.  We had the band set up that afternoon knowing we might have a limited show.  Thankfully the band agreed to start a half-hour early and were able to get a 90-minute set in.  At 8pm, we reassessed the weather and decided to do another set. For the most part, the bad weather stayed away but then just before 10pm, I got a call from the National Weather Service reporting a storm developing and heading our way within the hour.  I let the sound people know, the band played their final song and was able to be packed up before the storm hit.   It was a great example of cooperation all the way around and they were a pleasure to work with. In between looking at the weather, I was also able to enjoy their performance.  They exceeded my expectations.  They were professional, fun and put on a great show.  I have nothing but high praise and a big thumbs up for Jonah & the Whales.  I would recommend them to anyone and look forward to working with them again in the future.” Brent-Rocherster Fest 2016
