"I first heard this band a couple of years ago at a church anniversary party. I was amazed that a band existed that was able to play both excellent Greek and American music for our wedding! Carol and her team gets everyone dancing on the floor and no one wants the night to end. We highly recommend this band. They were worth every penny and more."
"My husband and I along with our families are Greek and Italian and we wanted traditional Greek and Italian songs. They were so helpful in selecting songs and were very thorough with song selection, timing and wedding party names, etc. Our guests were all complimenting on how great the band was and saying what a fun time they had greek dancing. My family, friends and myself were all very impressed with The Carol Sarlas Orchestra - I highly recommend them and can not wait to have them for another event some day!"
"We couldn't be happier with the choice we made with this band. Our dance floor was packed all night long. Carol and Chris are complete professionals, super nice, honest, very responsive, and their music is incredible! Carol even let my brother sit in and play bouzouki! We got a package that included the Artistrings string quartet for our ceremony. Thank you so much!"
