We are so thankful for our wonderful audiences and their warm and enthusiastic responses to our shows this year. We have truly loved sharing our music with you at special events, festivals, weddings, our Christmas Shows, culminating with the honor of performing at Cardinal Francis George’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Thank you!
A Wonderful Show!

Real crowd pleaser…
Tony and the AKO have twice been featured in our popular Summer Concert Series. Wonderful music and a fun director set the stage for great entertainment. The Anthony Kawalkowski Orchestra is a real crowd pleaser!

Thank you so much for the wonderful perfomance your orchestra gave for the Norwegian American Hospital Viking Ball at the Drake Hotel. Everything was just perfect, and thanks to you, the event was a success.
We were so impressed with your professionalism, talent and creativity. All of our guests enjoyed your music and could not stop dancing. It is simply impossible to narrow in on my favorite moment you provided, but what was especially memorable was the beautiful music by the strolling violinists. I do not stand alone in your praises as many of our guests can attest.
It was certainly a pleasure working with you and I look forward to doing it again in the near future.

Like the real thing…
This orchestra made our reception classy and fun. We liked the variety of music they play- everything from classic, contemporary, polkas, and much more (ask Tony for a song list). And if a song you would like isn’t on their list, they will write an arrangement for you (with enough notice, of course). They arranged “You’re My Inspiration” by Chicago for our first dance, and it sounded just like the real thing. During dinner a smaller ensemble accompanies Tony while he goes around to each guest table and plays a song of their request on his violin. Our guests raved about how much they enjoyed this (even my husband’s friends, who don’t usually go for his type of music)! And there were always people on the dance floor during the dance portion. Tony was easy and flexible to work with (and we hadn’t even met in person before the wedding). They truly made our reception the great party that it was!

How can we say thank you! You made our wedding a most beautiful wedding experience. People are still talking about the “music.” Your musicians and vocalists were just wonderful. Thank you…especially for the Moonlight Sonata…

You’re the best…
Thank you does not begin to express our appreciation for the incredible job you and your band did at our wedding. Everyone thinks you are the best in the world and everyone had a great time dancing. Thank you for all your hard work preparing the music and the last minute changes. You’re the best!

We will always remember…
I do not even know where to begin! You are a true talent. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful music you played for us and our guests at our wedding. Your passion for your art shows through and each of us present at the wedding were so lucky to be able to enjoy it. From the strolling violins at each table to the greeting of the strings at the top of the stairs for the dance with my father and with Chris, to the entire evening of excellent songs that got everyone on their feet. Everyone continues to comment on how fabulous you and your orchestra were! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it so special. We will always remember the music!
