Hot Club of SRQ Testimonials

Special Events - Straz Center

I am a programming manager at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, FL. I book and work with world class artists and entertainment companies almost every day. The Hot Club of SRQ are no exception. These are truly world class musicians who also happen to be professional, punctual, and a bunch of truly pleasant gentlemen. If you want authentic, unique, Gypsy Jazz to complement your event... hire them. Period. (Joel Lisi)


The Aland Duo were amazing! From the moment we spoke with Keven on the telephone he was professional and accommodating. EVERYONE at the event were so amazed by their talent. Many of our guests left with cards so that they could book for their own events. They played throughout our event keeping everyone entertained with their unique style and talent. They even played a few impromptu lullabies for a baby who was very entertained! We would most definitely use the Aland Duo again for any future events because of their talent, professionalism and dedication to their craft! -Sincerely, Terra Tominelli & Michelle Messier, Terra Nichol Academy of the Arts

Absolutely phenomenal! They were not only professional and kind but talented beyond compare! I received nothing but the highest praise for the Duo and cannot wait to see the video of their performance at the wedding. I had a specific song I wanted for the processionals, entrance song, etc. and they exceeded every expectation I had. They worked hard and made our night even more special because of their time and dedication. Kevin and Jon are true professionals and masters of their craft and tackled a myriad of different genres with style and grace and absolute class. If you are thinking of top notch, fun and amazing entertainment book The Aland Duo! Thanks!

Valentine's Day Party

Unbelievable talent, personable and professional is the best way to describe this duo. I can't say enough good things about these guys, several of our very particular customers said Keven Aland was the best violinist they had ever heard and his guitarist (Jon) was also amazing!! Their song selection was perfect for our event, especially their originals. I'm looking forward to booking them again soon... I've still got goose bumps!!! Alexis

Very talented musicians

Keven/Aland Entertainment are fabulous. From the start Keven took the time to understand what kind of music we wanted to hear at our wedding and gave me lots of suggestions. The amount of time and thought he invested in preparing our music far surpassed my expectations. On the wedding day the live music performance was excellent from start to finish and many of our guests complimented us on the band. I would highly recommend Aland Entertainment to anyone who wants live musicians to play at an event.
