Gary Fong 50th Birthday Party
Malibu Estate
50 Guests
I have used Rembrandt for different special events for 27 years! From
my wedding in 1983 to my second wedding three years ago at our ranch
in Kelowna, British Columbia Canada (yes, we flew all of the band
members to Canada because they are THAT good). And my wife recently
hired them (15 piece band) for my 50th birthday party in Malibu. Yes
we had under 30 guests, but the band was that worth it. And were they
overpowering? No, one thing about a great band is if they can play
during dinner hour and the guests can speak at a normal level.

And as a longtime musician, I am just a fan of every artist
individually and collectively as a group. Their energy is infectious
and for a dance floor, there is nothing so fun as to have Rembrandt
playing the most awesome, diverse set of music - anything from Glenn
Miller to the latest popular releases. And they learn requests, too.

We had five lead singers. That doesn't include the bandleader, Doug -
who himself is an amazing singer. This is not a corny "oompah"
wedding band. DJ's don't have the live presence and energy of festive
live music.

This band is a must for any event, large or small. I kid you not,
there is nothing you can do for your event more valuable than hiring
this band. I've probably referred them to over 100 friends and
clients, who have used them.

Braun/Heintz 100th Birthday Party
Langham Hotel-Pasadena
100 Guests
We LOVED you guys! Your band made our 100th Birthday Party a wild success. We received many, many compliments on what a great party we had and how great your band was. Several people have asked us for your band's name and wanted to know how we found you.
Rembrandt is a fantastic band that plays fun, party music and really connects with the party guests.
Please, please feel free to attribute any quotes you want to Jeff and me, and feel free to use our names as references. We had a great time at our party and Rembrandt made all the difference. I was thinking of "cheaping out" and hiring a DJ, and I was so glad that I hired Rembrandt.
Doug, I will ask some of our friends for their comments as well, but please know, I think you are the best-kept secret in the Los Angeles for event entertainment. Fun, consummate professionals that deliver results.
Janet and Jeff

Mitchell/Deschamps Wedding Reception
Fairbanks Ranch Country Club
210 Guests
Hi Doug,

We have had so many compliments on our wedding and the first thing guests asked is "Where did you find that band? They are amazing!" We had a large dance floor and it was filled all night! I have never had seen so many people dancing at an event. Even our older guests, who I did not know could dance, were out there having a blast. The band was so versatile that every generation enjoyed the music. Rembrandt even learned our first dance song at no additional charge. When the wedding was ending the band got an encore and they were so nice and played an additional song. During the planning process Doug always responded quickly to any questions and was very helpful in planning our day of timeline. It was the best money we spent on our wedding. You will not be disappointed!
Take care,
-Lauren & Lionel

Smoker/Grove Wedding Reception
Montage Beverly Hills

Dear Doug and Rembrandt Members,

From the first moment I spoke with Doug Waitman on the phone, he was terrific. My daughter's wedding (Grove/Smoker) November 12th, was in a few weeks and my son and I wanted to do a surprise for the newlyweds on their special day. I wanted to recognize the (Grandparents) along with singing a special song (Grampa) by The Judds and my son was to play the guitar. I explained to Doug that I had never sung before and that I was very scared. He stated that I should continue practicing and that if I was to faint, get emotional, or just plain change my mind on doing this, they (Rembrandt) would carry it on without a hitch. The music they played was enjoyed by all who attended and they still talk about the wedding, as one that will remain in their hearts forever. Having the "Rembrandt Band" as part of the wedding, made the entire event even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I must say that although my son and I are not professionals, having Doug and Rembrandt's backing us with our surprise, was one of the best choices we ever made. Thanks Again "Rembrandt", for making our event so very special!

Doug and Rembrandt Band,
Thank you so much for performing at our August 28, 2010 Wedding. You can definitely tell how great a band is by how many people are on the dance floor and how soon they begin dancing. As you remember, the dance floor was FILLED before dinner was served! We had to ask people to sit down to eat (the bride and groom included!). As soon as dinner was "out of the way", no one left the dance floor the entire night. Your selection was right on for the crowd (half late 20 year olds and half 60+). Even the grandparents danced to Blake Eyed Peas! Your performers were kind, fun and put up with one heck of a crowd (including a bride who demanded a mic and the stage!). I have been to many weddings and will go to many more and I can guarantee that I will never find a band better than you.

Thank you for being a part of our event, our memories, and our fun. Even my 70-year-old dad who was concerned about getting a live band due to the cost said to me "You were right. This band was well worth it!". Thank you for being amazing!

Dear Doug & the Rembrandt Family:
Wow! What a party you put on for our wedding. We cannot thank you enough for giving us and our guests such a memorable evening. Zev and I had one major priority for our reception and it was to keep the dancing going all night long-and we certainly got that. Not only did you fill the room with tons of energy, you guys also sounded amazing! We got so many raving reviews from our friends and family commenting on how impressed they were with our band. People told us you were the best band they ever heard. Thank you for listening to all our requests and for being such a pleasure to work with. We only wish we could have partied into the morning hours with you! Doug, thank you also for preparing and playing the beautiful ceremony music-everything sounded great and we can’t wait to watch it all back on video. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know getting married in the Southern California area in the future.
All the best to you, and thanks again for being so awesome. We couldn’t have made a better choice for our wedding!
With much gratitude,
Tamara & Zev

 Dear Rembrandt,
It is truly music that makes the party, and Rembrandt made our wedding! You did not miss a beat. Literally. You were refreshingly organized. From your snazzy appearance, to your voices and the sound quality that set the energy level with our guests. You exceeded our expectations of a wedding band!
We got more comments on the band after the wedding than we did with any of the other vendors. Without Rembrabdt my wedding would not have been the same! I put on my wedding video just to listen to the music when I need a lift-me-up around the house. It sounds like the real thing. I highly recommended you and we cannot wait to throw another celebration just to have you perform again!.....
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Adamick/Caballero Wedding
Hotel del Coronado-Coronado Island

Dear Doug,

It’s been a little over a week since Emily and Eric’s wedding and I’ve had a chance to catch my breath ... we’ve had 2 family birthdays, a trip to Las Vegas, and 4th of July all crammed into the last 7 days....

Of course you know (because how could you not?), the wedding was just spectacular, exceeding all our expectations, and a big part of that was the music provided by Rembrandt. I really want you to know, from my heart, how deeply I appreciate the fabulous job the band did all evening long. Without exception, EVERY guest that I spoke to was so excited about the band! From the moment I stepped into the ballroom, the band set the tone with lively music and continued to do so all night long. I think it’s rare to see nearly 100% of guests still on the dance floor at midnight begging for more, yet this is what we had. I wish I had had the time to speak to your band members personally, but of course I was busy dancing with and talking to my guests.

I have always felt that music is the single most important component of any party or celebration – certainly a wedding – and I was thrilled that Emily and Eric chose to have a live band. I am even more delighted that they chose Rembrandt; although the distance and travel fee were a consideration at first, I would do it again in a heartbeat, and I am also glad we decided to extend the playing time until the end of the party (instead of switching to a DJ for the last 90 minutes).

The band was so great at keying into the energy of our guests and kept that dance floor hopping all night. People don’t often remember what they had for dinner or how good the cake was, but they ALWAYS remember the great time they had on the dance floor. Thank you so much for making that happen.

In addition to the compliments of our guests, the personnel at the Del were saying how great our party was and how it had been a long time since they’d seen (if ever) a wedding so completely wonderful and fabulous, especially the music. Everyone was just saying WOW!!! :)

I am most happy to personally recommend you to anyone wanting feedback about your ability, talent, and service.

Have a great week!

Hi Doug,
I just want to tell you again that the band was loved and thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone told us that it was the best wedding they have been too. We are now two for two which is what we wanted. Shana's friends had a great time as did ours. Even the groom's side are asking for your number as some of them are from Los Angeles. You were all phenomenal. You absolutely made happen what we were seeking.
Our friends are now requesting that we start planning a 40th wedding anniversary.
Everyone was beautifully dressed. We were very happy. You delivered what you promised.
I loved Elton "Doug" John.
Shana said you also did some Ray Charles. The bride and groom are ecstatic with the success of their wedding.
Thanks again,
Sharon and Jeff

Dear Doug,
The music for Medleine and David’s Wedding was simply perfect. How did you ever acheive that delicate balance of music loud enough to create a great vibe for dancing but soft enough to be able to carry on a conversation? Everyone I talked to specifically commented on what a wonderful band we had, and, of course, they were right.
We can’t thank you enough for adding so much to the evening. You helped create the joyous feeling we wanted to share with our guests. Please extend our heartfelt thanks to all the musicians in your band. Your music added so much to an evening we will remember with joy and pride forever,
