WEDDINGS

• Peggy, bride, regarding band: "Good Cop Bad Cop absolutely made our Malibu wedding. In fact, when our former venue couldn't accommodate a band we changed our venue 6 weeks out so that GCBC could perform on our special day. Kenny was great to work with from beginning to end -- extremely professional and a super nice guy who really knows his stuff with music and sound. The band complimented our event perfectly -- playing lively dance music, to a few ballads, to chill dinner music. They even learned four songs for our event at our request!! Every member of the band had a smile on their face the entire time and you can tell they are passionate about performing. They sounded amazing, and no one wanted the night to end because we were dancing so much. Every one of our guests who we've talked to since the party say that Good Cop Bad Cop is hands-down the BEST wedding band they have ever heard. Peggy D., Wedding, 7/27/12, Malibu West Beach Club"

Ken and the band were kind and professional and we really appreciated how accommodating they were to our requests and schedule. The variety of songs was a hit with our very diverse crowd and we cannot thank them enough for really making our day very special.

They had a nice playlist throughout the night, and cranked it up and got the crowd going as the night progressed.

During that period of time, this band and it's leader, Ken Beckenstein, have at all times demonstrated a high degree of professionalism. Ken is a tremendous vocalist and is a pleasure to work with from a business standpoint - not only does Ken possess a great deal of talent, but he also has a concern and feel for what will translate into the best possible experience for both patrons and the establishment.

I didn't realize beforehand that it would only be 2 of you doing an acoustic type of show, but I think it suited you extremely well. I was totally into all the songs. All of us were. : ) You sounded a lot like the original artists giving it your own flavor with the percussion and the whistling. That was great!...Hope to see you again soon!"
