Testimonials

Here's just a sample of what people are saying about Group du Jour:


Hey there, Bill,

"Thank you again for an amazing performance at
our wedding! It was truly incredible! We had so
many of our guests tell us how much fun you guys
were and how awesome Group du Jour is!
Group du Jour was an incredible band!   Bill, the
lead singer, was excellent to work with leading up
to the wedding. He was very receptive to our
unique requests. The band’s set lists were
awesome, and the dance floor was packed all
night! The songs the band played included today’s
hits to all-time favorites. We did a 15-minute dance
set before dinner, and even before dinner,
everyone was having a great time dancing! My
now husband and I received many compliments
from our guests on how great and fun our band
was. The music was very appropriate for a
wedding and included each song we requested. I
would highly recommend Group du Jour to any
bride and groom looking for a band that will keep
people dancing and entertained all night long!
Group du Jour is also very affordable for a band of
its size!
Thank you again!"

Sincerely,
-Chelsey

Dear Billy,
 
Joe and I want to thank you again for the awesome performance from you and the band at our wedding. Sara and Gerry were extremely pleased with your music.
 
You packed the dance floor!! People are still asking about you and many compliments have come your way.
 
We have never been disappointed in any of your performances, and we can only hope you will still be "rocking" when our other children get married!
 
It was a pleasure working with all of you.  You guys are truly the BEST around!
 
Best regards,
 
Karen Sproul and family
 
Bill and band,
"I just wanted to send a note to thank you for
making Kayla's party so special. Group du Jour is
by far the best band we have ever had for our
parties. Everyone was raving at your performance.
The selections of songs, the spot on
arrangements and harmonies, and read of the
crowd were second to none. I would also thank
you for letting Meg sing with you. She really
enjoyed fronting a band again.
I'm sure we'll be using you for all of our future
events and hope to get to catch you at the Bar on
Oak Friday."

Thanks again,
Joe, Mary, Megan and Kayla Costello.

Wow. Thank you for helping make our wedding reception one to remember. Everyone loved you and your band. You all definitely know how to rock the crowd and played just the right mix of music, whether it was meal time or dance time you nailed it.
I have already passed ur name on to some friends at work and hope we have the opportunity to use u again.

With thanks

Hi Bill,

"Missed seeing you at the resorts. I can honestly
say that you and your band were one of the main
reasons we would book there. When choosing
dates I would call them to get your schedule and
reserve only then. We enjoyed quite a few New
Year's Eve Weekends with you.
You didn't just play great music but your
interaction with the audience was funny and
enjoyable.
Will definitely be seeing you perform again in
person. Thank you for many nights of enjoyment."

All the best
Rob


During my 27 years of serving as General Manager of two of the most prestigious private country clubs in Northeastern Pennsylvania, I've had the extreme pleasure of working with Billy Lombardi and the "Group du Jour" band at both weddings and club dinner dances on countless occasions. No musical ensemble has played for me and my clients more than this outstanding group of talented entertainers during that time and no band has been more consistently on top of their game at each and every performance. Billy and his band are the consummate professionals in every way and offer a level of musical entertainment that is second to none, which is why I book them at every opportunity for my club.

I have nothing but the highest praise for "Group du Jour" and strongly recommend that you hire them for any and all special occasions. I'm more than certain that both you and your guests will be very glad you did!

"I love working with Bill Lombardi and Group du
Jour. We have many bands come to the Club, but
few with the talent, versatility and ability to adapt to
each events specific needs. Definitely one of our
favorite bands."

Dear Bill,

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!  You all truly made our All Class Gathering at King’s College one to remember.  Our alumni and friends of King’s still talk about what a great band we had that night and that we should have a party like that every Homecoming weekend (We will!).  I got tons of compliments! And I couldn’t stop dancing (as you probably noticed!) J  The songs were perfect, the energy was amazing and the sound was un-matched!

Fantastic. Professional. Easy. Group du Jour was all of these things and more.

Hi Billy,

"What an incredible night . . . I can't tell you how
much we enjoyed listening to your band last
month at Bartoli Winery!  Watching you perform
and listening to your voice brought me back in
time . . ."

"You guys freaking rock!!! I literally drive 2 hours
just to see you perform and it's worth it! You sing
songs by The Beatles, Black Eyed Peas and Earth
Wind and Fire - so versatile and so unbelievably
talented!! It's always a wonderful time."

We have been following Group Du Jour from the 1980's. Being in a rock n roll band (vocalist and bassist), we can appreciate what this band has to offer. They cover all types of music from Country to Classic Rock, Rhythm and Blues to Motown, Lady Gaga to Earth, Wind and Fire and even Rap. They have to be the best party band anywhere! AND, not only are the musicians impeccable, the vocals are right on the money! They are a must see!! Also, as an added attraction, they are down to earth people who are in this business to please. You are in for a good time when Group Du Jour is on the marquis.

MICK & PATRICE


We have followed Group du Jour for at least twenty-five years and just loved to hear them play.  They are such a versatile and talented group of musicians because they play all venues - from the 60's right up until the present time.  Group du Jour is so professional and such great "showmen" that the dance floor is always packed with folks enjoying themselves.  You get a "Life is Good" feeling when listening to them perform.

THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT!
