Emily Poirier

I hired the Kensie Jazz Ensemble to play for our store's grand opening party. With the intention of this celebration to create an elegant, yet fun atmosphere -they could not have been more perfect for this event! They were easy and quick to communicate with beforehand and were on time and professional. Julie's smooth, rich vocals were matched superbly by a group of incredibly talented musicians. Suffice to say, myself and all in attendance were blown away. I would certainly hire them for future events, and highly recommend this group!

My husband and I booked Julie McGregor and the Kensie Band to play at our wedding reception. We were very impressed at the musicianship and professionalism they demonstrated. The band was unobtrusive during setup and was very responsive to requests. They also provided special lighting throughout the evening, which was a delightful surprise. We received many compliments from the guests on the band's performance. We were thrilled with the Kensie Band and we highly recommend them.
