Here's what others are saying about Jack and the band:
"...Jack Furlong [and his] band have been wonderful supporters of Susan G. Komen for several years. [They] have generously offered their musical talent for our events in addition to donating their music to our fundraising auction. Jack is always professional, prompt, and gracious. His music is beautiful and helps set the tone for the entire evening. Those who bid and win [his band] in the auction have nothing but the highest praise for not only his music, but the level of service provided. Their musical talent as well as their ability to accommodate a variety of venues sets [them] apart from their peers." -Nancy H., Fmr. Executive Director, Central and South Jersey Affiliate, Susan G. Komen For The Cure
"...Jack Furlong...provided the perfect ambiance for the cocktail hour of our wedding reception last summer. The gentlemen were punctual, professional, and a delight to work with. Their musical selection was a joy to listen to and set a light and fun tone for the rest of the evening. Several of our wedding guests approached us throughout the evening just to complement us on choosing such a talented group of musicians. We highly recommend [them] for your wedding or next function!" -Jim and Lauren B., Somerville, MA
"The Jack Furlong Orchestra was the perfect addition to our wedding celebration. Their combination of classic standards and upbeat dance music fluently helped us transition from dinner to dancing. Dancing to Michael Buble's "Everything" was one of the highlights of our night, a moment that we will remember forever. The members of The Jack Furlong Orchestra are truly talented showmen (and women) with a classic sound. We were so pleased with their performance at our reception!" -Chris and Jess E., Hoboken, NJ
