Nina & Peter,
I just wanted to reiterate how much we enjoyed having you guys play at the wedding. As you may have been able to tell, Jess and I love music and love dancing, and it was critical to us that we find a special and talented band for our wedding. You guys were the perfect choice. We had high expectations (based on several of the references you gave us) and they were exceeded!
Also, a very, very special thank you for allowing me and my brothers to play alongside the band and pay tribute to my Dad. Up until ~4 months ago, I actually hadn’t picked up my Sax in over 10 years. Surprisingly (and thankfully) it all came back to me relatively quickly. That moment meant a lot to me, Jess and many other people at Phipps’ that evening. It will always be one of the most special moments of my life, and I thank you for helping me turn that idea into a wonderful reality.
The Elite Show Band was AMAZING and made our wedding incredibly wonderful!! Nina and company were so professional and attentive, plus the band has genuinely nice people who seemed to care about making our reception really fun. The music and singing is amazing in person and our guests danced and danced all night. A ton of people came up to us and asked about the band, and I definitely think it was the highlight of the reception. I highly recommend!
We hired the Elite Show Band for our daughter’s wedding. This was the best decision that we could have made. Our guests are still commenting on the wonderful, enjoyable Band. Peter & Nina are professional, and energetic the entire night. Peter always returned our calls when we had questions. Kayla, the coordinator is also very organized and friendly. She stayed with the Band the entire night to ensure that everything went according to plan. You will not be disappointed!! Don’t hesitate! Book this Band today!
Nina and Peter and the rest of the Elite Show Band are incredible in every sense of the word!!! Not only are they immensely talented, but they are also caring and compassionate people. We will never be able to thank them enough for all that they did for us and for turning our reception into the event of the year!!! The dance floor was so packed that I (the bride) found myself dancing on the carpet. All night people were coming up to us saying “we love this band!!!” It has been three months and our guests are still raving about the band and saying they were the best they’ve ever seen at an event. Music can make or break an event and you cannot go wrong with the Elite Show Band.Nina and Peter and the rest of the Elite Show Band are incredible in every sense of the word!!!

Nina, Peter, and the entire Elite Show Band were spectacular – both as musicians/performers and as pseudo day of coordinators for us. Nina & Peter are organized professionals and put an anxious bride and groom at ease after our planning sessions and phone calls. On top of having the answers to all of our questions, they knew the questions to ask us that we had not thought of and guided us in the right direction for cadence of our big day. On top of being organized, they were totally flexible and listened to any little tweaks we wanted to make, even changes we made the days prior to the wedding. Once we made it to the reception, they had great music for our cocktail hour, acted as MC’s for all of the speeches, and really started to shine once they and the band got the dancing under way. Between our requested songs and their ability to play to the crowd, the music was an absolute hit. They played new songs + classics and kept the energy up until the lights came on. We have received compliment after compliment about our band. We would highly recommend Nina, Peter, and co to anyone who wants seasoned pro’s who can make your night something special! Thanks again guys!!!
The elite show band honestly made my wedding night they had the dance floor packed the entire night! (even family members I never saw dance were out there and having a blast) they engaged with all our guests as well which made the night feel even more special and personal. Every detail I had asked of them was done flawlessly from announcing the bridal party to playing every song I had asked for. This band is extremely professional and helped me along the way with everything I needed and my concerns. They were all such genuinely nice people and extremely talented I am so happy I went with the elite show band. My wedding would have not been the same without their entertainment!
The Elite Show Band far exceeded our expectations. We were unsure of what to expect because we never have seen them live and just watched videos, which were great, but you never know! They were even better than the videos we watched, Nina and Peter were very professional from the planning side to the day of the wedding. They helped me have the best day of my life and my wedding guests as well! Everyone raved all night over how great they were and kept asking who is this band! Thank you for keeping the dance floor alive, as so few weddings have that throughout the night anymore. Bottom line, if you want an amazing performance and your guests to have fun and most importantly, have fun as the bride and groom, hire the Elite Show Band!!
Peter, Nina, and the entire Elite Show Band crew were nothing short of outstanding. Countless guests came up to us afterwards and asked who the band was, as the Elite Show Band was a huge hit. The entire process working with the band from the start was smooth and Peter was always available if we had any questions or concerns. As the groom, I will recommend the Elite Show Band to any and all who ask for my opinion about the best wedding bands in Pittsburgh. That list will begin and end with the Elite Show Band. On behalf of Lauren and myself, thank you for making our wedding such an incredible day!
Elite show band really over-delivered for our wedding. Everything exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier. We definitely recommend them for your wedding if you are considering. First, they were extremely flexible and willing to travel all the way to Akron, OH from their base in Pittsburgh. Peter, Nina, and Cami were very helpful throughout the planning process, alerting us to things about our wedding reception plan that hadn’t even crossed our minds. The online planning tool was easy to use and a great way to organize all of the band-related decisions for the reception. As far as the actual night and performance, they hit it out of the park. They put together a great set list based on the general themes that we asked them to stick to. Peter and Nina were great in interacting with our guests and kept the party going all through the night. Our guests had a wonderful time and are still raving about how much fun they had weeks later. Elite show band really knows how to put on a great show and get a big dance party going.
We highly recommend The Elite Show Band. Nina and Peter were totally amazing to work with. They were positively full of smiles and fun energy. Many of the bands we watched videos for were like watching stiff robots playing songs. The band was a concert like experience. Can you say down to earth to deal with? Peter and Nina were like booking a band at a neighborhood store that you frequented for the last 25 years. We can’t say enough great things about them! The videos online of the band are great, but truly don’t do the band justice. They were jaw dropping live. We only had a couple of songs that we definitely wanted to have played and they were able to play all of them perfectly. In fact, they played all of our first dance songs live too and we thought we picked songs people never used! We didn’t have any choreographed dances, so them playing all the songs was perfect for us. They were able to shorten some of the longer songs for first dances too without anyone noticing the changes. We really didn’t want our special dances taking up a lot of time and Nina and Peter helped us get the party started in a timely fashion. We have fielded so many compliments for our wedding, the majority of those towards the band. Besides the few songs we wanted played, we let the band run with their own song choices. The dance floor was packed not only for the initial hours after dinner service, but right up until we had to shut it down. Even our 92 year old grandmother was dancing the night away until 12:30 in the morning! I know I’m a bit biased, but in my 40 years I have never had so much fun at a wedding. I even got compliments on the band from hotel staff. One saying that he has been doing weddings in the hotel for 12 years and this was easily top 3 ever for the amount of fun everyone was having and that he thought the band was phenomenal. I’m a fun guy, but I’ll have to defer most of the credit for the amount of fun people had at our wedding to The Elite Show Band.
Elite show band absolutely MADE the reception. We could not be happier with how things turned out! Their professionalism, talent, and experience were so evident. They were able to read the crowd and keep everyone engaged and having fun. The highlight of the night was when they invited my brother on stage with them to play drums! It meant so much to my family and we really had a blast ending the evening this way. We recommend this band with the utmost enthusiasm! Now we just need to come up with a reason to throw another party and hire them again!
Elite Show Band was absolutely the highlight of our wedding reception. Peter and Nina were wonderful to work with from the moment we reached out to them, right up until our wedding day – a huge plus for an out of town bride! Not only did the band sound great, but they were interactive – they got guests on the dance floor and kept them there for the whole reception. We had some problems with our venue and the dinner service, but all was forgotten once the band got the party started. We got compliments from many guests that this was the best wedding band they’d ever heard (we thought so too!). In my mom’s words, they “made the wedding!” Highly recommend!
I cannot say enough good things abut Elite Show Band! To me, the music was the most important part a reception and one of my very top priorities when planning my wedding was finding an amazing band. Elite Show Band did not disappoint and truly ended up being one of the best things about our entire wedding. The band is nothing short of AMAZING! I have never seen a dance floor as packed as it was at our wedding. Our guests were even dancing during dinner – that is how great they are! Everyone kept coming up to me and asking where I found them because they thought they were the best wedding band they have ever heard. Not only does the band sound great, but Peter and Nina really know how to read a crowd and keep the party going – they are expert emcees and kept the evening flowing effortlessly. We originally booked the 6 piece band, but ended up upgrading to the 8 piece a few months before the wedding and it was so worth it! I would definitely recommend going with the 8-piece if you can fit it into your budget – the horn section really takes the music to the next level! Peter and Nina were so professional and really great to work with leading up to the wedding as well. They are extremely responsive and always got back to my emails and calls very quickly. I had numerous questions throughout the planning process and they were more than willing to answer them and help to make suggestions on how to make the evening run smoothly. They even learned two new songs that were not on their playlist for my our first dance and my father/daughter dance — I was so appreciative that they were willing to do that for us because it made our reception that much more special. I really felt that they went above and beyond to make sure that our reception was absolutely perfect. We were so happy that we chose Elite Show Band! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to make their wedding reception spectacular!
We are so happy that we chose Elite Showband to do our wedding. Nina and Peter were professional and so fun to work with. Everyone was on their feet dancing during the entire wedding, and I know everyone had a great time. They played music that applied to all ages and everyone commented on how great our band was. I would definitely say that Elite Showband is the best wedding band in Pittsburgh!!
The Elite Show Band played at my son’s wedding this past weekend. wow, Wow, WOw, WOW WOW !!!!! What a magnificent performance. Basically nonstop highest of quality music. Exceptional absolutely exceptional. Fun for all ages. As I moved about the room as the father of the groom the comments about the quality of this band were never ending and unsolicited. Every person who spoke to me that evening made comment as to the enjoyment they had listening and dancing to the band and the stunning high end of everything about them. If you are considering a band for any type of event I would not hesitate a second in signing up the Elite Show Band.
I really can’t say enough great things about Elite Show Band – they are FANTASTIC! Our wedding day was truly a dream come true and the reception was a non-stop party thanks to Elite Show Band. I have never been to a wedding where the guests started dancing BEFORE dinner was served. The band actually had to ask our guests to sit down to make sure they ate! But, as soon as plates were cleared, everyone rushed back to the dance floor – and stayed there the ENTIRE night. All of our guests – from 18 years old to 80 years old – danced and sang the night away. My 86 year old grandmother danced through the last song! The majority of our guests were out of town and we had countless people tell us that Elite Show Band was the BEST band they had ever seen! Everyone just seemed to have the greatest time. We booked the 8 piece band which was truly the perfect mix. Peter and Nina provide non-stop entertainment, and not only that, but they are also the sweetest, most genuine people you could ever have the pleasure to meet. They truly care about their clients. The few weeks leading up to our wedding, they were extremely thorough, which took a lot of stress off of us. They work with you to make sure they give you the wedding reception of your dreams – and they deliver! They not only give you the reception of your dreams, but they also make you feel incredibly special. If you are even considering a band you must book Elite Show Band – I really do not think there is another band out there that can top them – they are outstanding! Thank you Peter and Nina for the Best. Day. Ever!!
The Elite Showband played at our wedding on 8/29 at Oakmont Country Club. They are beyond talented and know how to get the dance floor full and keep it full for the entire event. Peter and Nina are very professional and really know what they are doing. Everyone keeps talking about how amazing our band was. I’ve seen a few bands in the Pittsburgh region and I can confidently say the Elite Showband is the best band in Pittsburgh.
We cannot speak highly enough of Elite Show Band! They brought the party to the dance floor and not a single person was left sitting in their seat. And no one wanted to leave the dance floor at the end of the night. Nina and Peter were an absolute joy and ease to work with throughout the whole planning process. They worked with us to learn new songs for our father/daughter and mother/son dances and created a customized playlist. This is the band you need for your wedding!!
If you are looking for a band that will take your wedding to the next level The Elite Show Band is the choice for you! Not only are they professional, but are absolutely the best sounding band we have ever had the pleasure of listening to. They kept the dance floor packed the entire time, they have the ability to read your guests to know what and when to play songs! We couldn’t have been happier with our choice, they truly made our Wedding Day one to remember! Our wedding guests are STILL talking about how fantastic the band was!
I’m from the Philadelphia area, but my son’s wedding was out in Pittsburgh and I was tasked with finding a band. Since it was too difficult to drive out to Pittsburgh, we read a number of reviews online and listened to different bands on YouTube. We decided to go with The Elite Show Band and I have to say, they exceeded our expectations. At first we selected the 6 piece band but, later upgraded and added the full brass/horn section. You would think that the brass would only play on a few numbers here and there, but instead they played with full rich brass on almost every arrangement (I particularly liked the Chicago number they did). Our guests could not stop talking about and complementing the band and how wonderful they were. They kept us on our feet all night long with a fantastic selection of songs, both classic oldies and current hits. They played a terrific full arrangement of Uptown Funk, which even got the old-folks up off their chairs. To top off the great music, the band also took care of all of the MC’ing for the night, in introducing the wedding party, cutting the cake and making all the usual announcements. Besides the great vocals and instrumentation, they also had a sound engineer with a wireless tablet who constantly monitored and made all necessary volume and balance adjustments through the night. The wedding reception was absolutely fantastic thanks to the Elite Show Band. They are a great group to work with in planning your event and you could tell that they also had a great time in entertaining us.
One of our priorities was to have a phenomenal band….and we found the,. Nina and Peter put their hearts and souls into their performances and engaged with the audience. Lee and Luke were so thrilled and very few guests left the dance floor in a 4 hr window. Their professionalism and showmanship shine through. We hired the 8 piece show and for the Omni venue….it was perfect! So glad we found them and hope to use them again.
First of all, I would just like to say simple words do not do this band justice! If they were written in gold and diamonds we might have a start… The Elite Show Band is unlike anything I’ve ever seen at an event such as a wedding. They engage themselves with the guests during the entire length of the event and you can easily tell they are absolutely in love with what they do. They are such a beatifully talented group of musicians. They are beyond accommodating and simply special!
I lost count of the number of guests who stopped me to compliment the band during and after the wedding. They were everyone’s favorite part of our reception! Not only was their performance energetic and crowd-pleasing, but they were a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. Nina and Peter (the singers and band leaders) were able to accommodate our song choices and were quick to respond to all of my emails with questions and updates about the reception. They also provided an easy-to-use electronic form to organize all of the information they needed to announce our bridal party, what songs to play, and the order of our toasts and blessings. They are more than just musicians, as they also MC the entire event and keep all of the moments at the reception (cake cutting, dinner, dances, etc) moving along seamlessly. I am so glad my husband, our families, and I opted for Elite Show Band: they are true musical professionals and they brought so much life to our party! In retrospect, I can’t imagine having anyone else perform at our reception– they made the evening memorable for all who attended.
The wedding was everything they dreamed of and more. A big part of the wedding’s success was due to the music provided by the Elite Show Band. The wedding guest list included people from Los Angels, New York City, Washington DC, and many more cities in between. Without exception every guest was so excited at having a live band, but also by the excellent quality of music being played by the band. Guest’s were asking did you bring this band in from LA or NYC? We really appreciate how the band set the tone with the lively music, from the moment the bride and groom stepped onto the barn dance floor and kept the energy level high and the dance floor full until the reception ended. You adjusted on a moments notice when the bride decided to dance with her 95 year old grandfather and his request was New York, New York. In addition to exceeding our expectations, and our guests, the venue, Destiny Hill Farm, was also impressed. The people of western Pennsylvania and the surrounding states are indeed lucky to have a band of your quality and talent in their backyard. Peter and Nina, you are top notch professionals and conduct yourselves on that level in all aspects of your business dealings. The bride and groom found you accessible and easy to work with. Thank you from the bottom of our hears for providing everyone at the wedding with a night to remember!
Incredible performance…our guests are still raving about Elite Show Band and inquiring for more info for their own son/daughter’s weddings. Peter and Nina were extremely organized and professional. Not only did the 11 piece band put on a show, they provided great energy, kept our guests engaged, and made sure the night ran smoothly. Hands down the best band we have seen at a wedding. They were very accommodating and worked with us to provide speakers/mics/music for our outdoor ceremony (we were married at Destiny Hill Farm – ceremony was outdoors and the reception was in a barn). We would recommend Elite Show Band to any future bride and groom in a heartbeat! Thank you Peter and Nina! Sincerely, A very grateful bride and groom.
The Elite Show Band was AMAZING and everything we wanted in a band for our wedding. They were able to play a variety of music that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! We had MANY guests comment how awesome the music was for the night. Not only were they great entertainers, but they were extremely professional and easy to work with throughout our planning process. We would highly recommend them to anyone!
The band was one of the most important decisions in planning our wedding because we believe that the band and the food are the two most memorable parts of the wedding. We researched over 10+ bands that were recommended to us by word of mouth. After listening to music clips, several people each independently selected Elite Show Band as their favorite based on the clips. This was the first sign to us that Elite was the easy choice. Elite was extremely open and accommodating to listening to any concerns that we had and addressed them appropriately. We had been to weddings in the past where the Hora was too short and very disappointing. Elite suggested the idea that they will continue playing the Hora until either my wife or I gave them the signal that we were ready to stop. They also agreed to not play the few songs that we were not fans of on their song list. My one criticism is that when we were reviewing the song list, we googled “Elite Show Band song list” and a list came up with the same exact formatting as their website. We meticulously reviewed this list, but it turned out that somehow it was not their actual song list so we had to redo the whole process. The night of the wedding, one of our hopes was to have the dance floor packed the entire night. It was! From the second after the entrance and the first dances were over, guests flooded the dance floor, in large part thanks to Elite’s excellent performance. The Hora was phenomenal. I was having such a great time that I didn’t want it to end, but I asked my wife when it is over why the music stopped, and she said she had to give the signal because she was exhausted :)! I had countless guests come up to me throughout the night remarking how great the band was. And, the music they played was so diverse that it had all three generations out dancing on the dance floor. Overall, Elite far surpassed our very high expectations and I would highly recommend them for your event!
Hiring the Elite Show Band was the best decision we made while planning our wedding reception. We wanted the music to be the highlight of our wedding reception and the band absolutely delivered!! All of our guests had a wonderful time and danced from the first song until the band stopped playing. They played a wide variety of music throughout the night and played all of the styles phenomenally. I do not have enough good things to say about them! Wedding guests have still been commenting about how amazing they were 3 weeks after our wedding and my new husband and I could not have been more happy with the music. They were so professional, accommodating, and personable to work with. I give them my absolute highest recommendation! Thanks Peter and Nina!!
Elite Band was wonderful. They are very responsive and professional. They have amazing voices and the band itself it really talented. They have a huge range of music and do a great job listening to you regarding song selection. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole time. I would completely recommend them to anyone. The band really impacts the mood and fun level at a wedding so it is something important to get right and we are so happy we chose Elite Showband.
Nina and Peter were awesome. Everyone at my wedding raved about them and they definitely made the night a party! Everyone was on the dance floor all night having a great time! I had them play a song for my uncle who passed away a month earlier and they did a terrific job. I told them I wanted an up-beat song to honor him, without bringing the mood down and they did just that. Very professional. My only complaint is that they had to stop at the end of the night! haha
We can not say enough good things about the Elite Show Band. They very a fantastic band and kept people on the dance floor for our entire 5 hour long wedding reception. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the Elite Show Band and loved the variety of music that they were able to play. Multiple guests said that it was the best wedding entertainment that they have ever experienced. They were so easy to work with, answered our emails quickly, learned not only our first dance but also our introductory song for the reception. The conference call we had with Nina and Peter about a week before the wedding was fantastic, they really got to know us, get a feel for the type of guests we were having, the songs we wanted to be played and wanted to stay away from, how we wanted introduced into the reception and so much more. I would recommend the Elite Show Band to everyone, they made our wedding an event that we will never ever forget.
Peter and Nina were great to work with and very professional. They kept our wedding flowing and people dancing all night long.
