Thank you so much for the CD's.  I enjoy listening to the original
arrangements of familiar songs and the ruach of the performance.
Especially in these dangerous times, it is a joy to hear these
Once again, we were so happy to have you perform at Josh's bar-mitzvah.
I have been looking forward to dancing a freilich set at his
bar-mitzvah since he was born.  I look forward to having you sing at
future bar mitzvahs.  We have at least 5 more to look forward to.

You made beautiful music that everyone enjoyed on many different levels. Thank for making our daughters Bat-Mitzvah very special!

Music is key at a wedding party and we were very happy with our choice of Izzy Kieffer. When the sound was playing, you just wanted to be on the dance floor. Even those who didn't dance couldn't help but jump right out of their seats. We never had so many people approach us just to say "awesome party!" and comment on how lively it was. He provided just the right mix of dinner and dance music. Even the time spent waiting for the guests of honor was enjoyable (as we were told). And if there's a song he doesnt know, you can rest assure that he'll have it taken care of in time for the big moment. Just as importantly, Izzy is professional, real easy to deal with and very accomodating....whether it's providing more time, additional sound or specialty musicians/singers or a variety of musical genre (traditional Jewish, modern American, European, Middle Eastern/Sefardic, etc.). Also, not only did the customer not have to chase after him but he took the proactive role, communicating with us as well as others, knowing that we had more important things on our minds. Finally, the price is right. You get more than what you pay for!

Be well,
Mark and Shani Vegh

Dear Izzy,

Thank you for your group's good work at our son's Bar Mitzvah on 3/20/04. We enjoyed having you, someone who was known to the Heschel community, and we enjoyed working with you to make the group's performance suit our personal needs.

Shabbat Shalom!

Merle Wolff

Everyone thought you all were great and added something very special to the event. People said to me "where did you find this group, they were great." Everyone enjoyed the variety of music you provided.

Please feel free to use me as a reference. Thanks again for everything.

Dear Izzy:

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much my wife and I were thrilled with the Acapella performance that you and your company provided at Sammi's Bat Mitzvah on October 11, 2003. Your group was the perfect touch to enhance our Shabbat luncheon, and turn it into a great affair.

Once again, thank you for a job well done.

Very truly yours,

Thank you, Izzy! Your acappela Orchestra was so professional and musically excellent that they put so much ruach in Aaron's Bar Mitzvah luncheon this Shabbath. Throughout the event you entertained with the perfect mix of authentic Jewish songs and guest requests. You got everyone dancing the hora and all the kids up and interacting with your musical games. Lots of people asked about you and I past on your number.
It was a pleasure working with you. Your orchestra out preformed all our expectations and made our simcha truelly special. On behalf of my whole family - YASHER KOACH

Thank you and your colleagues so much for your talent and great attitude on Shabbat. You aded so much to an event which was so meaningful to me. Perhaps even more than the music (which everyone enjoyed) was your "menschlichkeit."

We would be happy to recommend you to any of our friends or to serve as a reference.

Thanks again.
