In planning for my husband's surprise 65th birthday, I went online looking for a 50s/60s type musical group. You'd think that I'd be easily able to find it in Boston, but I had to go to Ohio to find Bill Foley and I made the best possible choice. He has a wonderful voice, a great repertoire of songs, and he plays the guitar so well. The event was Feb. 10, 2013, just after one of the biggest snow storms in Boston's history. Bill made the journey and delivered everything as promised. - Andrea K, 2/2013, Private Party, Boston, MA

Bill's talent and experience helped us pull together a beautiful wedding with very little planning on our part. We found him to be very personable and professional.

We all loved him and were touched by how much he loves what he does. We highly recommend you! -Diane K, Wedding Ceremony, Logan, OH  2/2010

Burns & McDonnell wants to give a huge round of applause to Bill Foley for a tremendous job done. Burns & McDonnell Engineering Co. has a reputation for outstanding client functions following the APWA Congress and Expo Events. The music and song by Bill added to the cocktail party aboard The Santa Maria ship in Columbus , Ohio . He played light, upbeat music that was enjoyed by all. The event was flawless thanks to his timeliness, care and communication. As I was not able to travel to Columbus prior to the event, I relied heavily on the ideas of Bill and his knowledge on the acoustics of the space. Since returning to KC, I have heard nothing but great things from all the Burns & McDonnell staff and clients regarding the music. The music added to the cocktail party without becoming overpowering. It was a lovely serenade to those enjoying the sights from The Santa Maria ship. -Emma S., Corporate Event, Columbus, Ohio  9/2009

Bill was great.  All of the guests were full of great comments and I look forward to booking him again. Bill was more than fair on price, but most of all, full of talent. I would reccomend him for any event.  -Jason S, Corporate Event, Mansfield, Ohio 8/2009

You performed at our wedding last September and I was soooo busy at the time that I just now thought to give a word of recognition for your performance.  You were wonderful and so pleasant and professional.  I really appreciate your effort and success in making our day that much more enjoyable.  Everyone was highly impressed and they were shocked, when at times they thought they were listening to a CD and looked over to find out that "No" that the beautiful sounds were the wonderful vocals and acoustics of Bill Foley!!" - Brooke B., Wedding Reception, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, 9/2007 

Bill Foley was very organized. He followed the time outline that we created and kept the reception flowing. His band was talented and respectful. They checked in with us during the reception to make sure we were happy with the way things were going. Many of our guests complimented the band and were interested in booking them for future events. We couldn't have asked for anything different from this band. --Diane D., Selma, IN, 6/2008

Thanks, Bill for making my husband's birthday party a great success! Your voice and music is wonderful. The nicest part about the evening was that we could talk to our friends and family without shouting over the music. Thanks again for making our event perfect!

-Chris H, 9/2008, Church Service, Sidney, OH

Bill was very personable and played requests we had.

Bill helped us to make a memorable nursing home week celebration.
Natalie H., Columbus, OH 5/2008

-Clint R, 6/2008, Wedding, Columbus, OH

We couldn't be happier that we found Bill Foley. He was thoroughly professional and a pleasure to work with. The band is very talented, and all of the music at our wedding was exceptional. Bill got our guests dancing and kept them dancing the whole night. Our guests specifically commented to me that they loved the band and the style and variety of music they played, and wanted to know how we found them. We would definitely recommend Bill Foley to anyone. Thanks so much for everything! You made our wedding truly special! David and Laura Kaufman

Wonderful job! Did exactly what was asked of him. Would hire again and highly recommend!
-Tara A, 4/2008, Community Event, Raleigh, NC

Bill was great! His voice rivals John Denver, Jim Croce and James Taylor. Bill handled the wedding music and reception with the experience and professionalism that brought rave reviews from our guests. Bill's ability to read our guests (we had a mix of young and old) and his mix of music kept everyone entertained until the end of our reception. We need to also send a special "Thanks" to Bill's wife, Cresha, whom was a big help to these first time parents of the bride. We were very fortunate to have Bill handle the music and the entertainment at our daughter's wedding. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Bill again. -Missy Y, Wedding Reception, Fort Wayne, IN 7/2008

Bill was at the event building and set up before I even got there. He was very friendly and allowed the feel of the party set the tone for which music he chose. Bill was just very nice.
-Heather P, 12/2007, Birthday Party, Newark, OH

Bill Foley was awesome! I threw a Farewell party for my husbands deployment. We had a wide age span in the attendance but Bill preformed songs that everyone knew. He was on time and even began a little earlier than asked so that was a treat! When not singing he played songs and also took requests. I would highly recommend Mr. Foley.
-Sarah S, 12/2007, Private Party, Columbus, OH

I was very pleased w/the Bill Foley Band, and really have no complaints. I was nervous going into it, not knowing if they were going to perform to my expectations, but they did. I didn't have to tell them 'otherwise' while they were performing. Also, Bill was very personable and friendly. He went out of his way to speak w/me and make sure I was happy, and he spoke w/some of the guests too. Thumbs up! -Heather H, 8/2009, Thompsonville, MI

The Bill Foley Band is amazing! I will admit that I was concerened about having a a live band play at our wedding reception. We were having a sit down dinner and I was nervous that it would be so loud that people wouldn't be able to enjoy dinner and chat with each other. After sharing my concerns with Bill he assured me it would be fine and he was right. The music was perfect through dinner and then we danced the night away. They are very accomodating and great to work with. We received many compliments from our guests and some inquired as to where to find them. I would definately recommend the Bill Foley Band to anyone! -Brett B, 12/2008, Wedding, Summersville, WV

My wife and I were married on November 22 in what I like to call The Middle of Nowhere, Kentucky near Natural Bridge State Park. Bill Foley and his trio played our reception, and they were fantastic. The music was great, and Bill and his wife handled all of our requests, large and small, with ease. I highly recommend Bill Foley!
-Taylor S., 11/2008, Slade, KY

Bill and his band were exceptional! They totally came through for my wedding day. They knew exactly what to play at the right times to keep everybody happy and entertained. They kept myself and the guests dancing all evening. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I absolutely would recommend him to others and would use him again myself. As a matter of fact, I'm trying to figure out what kind of party we can have next so I can get him back to NC! The people in charge of my wedding commented on him as well. How nice, and professional he was. He came out early to check out the place to make sure everything was in order. On a scale of 1-10, Bill was an 11! Great Job!

The Bill Foley Band exceeded our expectations. They were very talented and professional. Bill was very helpful throughout the entire planning process.

Guests are still asking me where we found the band. We could not have been happier with our choice!

The Bill Foley Band was fantastic! They played a mixture of music that everyone could enjoy! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
-Jenny D, 12/2007, Corporate Function, Cincinnati, OH

The band performed in the art museum, not well known for its acoustics. Despite this, they sounded amazing. The last four weddings I have been to this year have had minimal dancing by the guests. This was not the case with the Bill Foley Band. Young and Old, everybody seemed to get up to get down. Also, the cd of our songs for the intro, mother/son, father/daughter dances wouldn;t read, and believe it or not, Bill knew the songs. All was saved. Having worked amongst musicians my whole life, this is the best band in the region for a top notch, sophisticated wedding or event. I am very grateful.
-Julie B, 10/2007, Wedding, Cincinnati, OH

 Bill Foley and his band far exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were quite high to begin with, based on all of the other positive reviews. With only a few exceptions, we let the band decide on what music to play and we couldn't have been happier with that decision. Both the young and old at our wedding enjoyed listening to and dancing with the music.
-David B., 9/2007,
Cincinnati, OH

Bill and the trio did a great job. Everyone throughly enjoyed the performance
-Kathleen S., 8/2007,
Marysville, OH 

We could not have selected a more perfect band for our wedding reception. So many of our guests kept asking us about the band and wondered where we found them. Beyond their talent, they were extremely accommodating and gave us wonderful suggestions on music and timing of those special wedding reception monents. We were able to truly enjoy our reception and our time with our family and friends and just let them m.c. the evening. It was so nice to not have to worry or keep watch of time for toasts, first dances etc. They made it possible for us to just enjoy our day and they handled everything! Thank you Bill Foley Band!!!! I would recommend you all in a heartbeat!
-Jennifer K, 7/2007, Wedding, Athens, OH 

We had Bill Foley's 3 piece band play at our outdoor casual pool party wedding reception and they were wonderful! They were more than accommodating to us on the wedding day and throughout the planning process. In addition, they are extremely professional. The songs they sang/played were great, so many people mentioned that it was hard to tell the difference from the original artists. If our guests weren't up dancing they were were singing along and tapping their feet. I'm not very eloquent with my words, but this band added "the icing on the cake" making our wedding day absolutely fantastic!
