Peat Moss played at my daughters wedding on October 29, 2022. And let me tell you this band was amazing they had everybody up dancing the entire night. Thank you Peat Moss for an incredible evening with my family, as the father of the bride you completely rocked the night. You made this beautiful evening memorable for a lifetime.

Barbara helped us book Peat Moss and the Fertilizers for our wedding, and I truly cannot say more good things about both of them! The band was amazing, and had everyone on their feet the entire time (literally). They really elevated our entire reception, playing all different types of music that everyone loved. Barbara helped make that happen. She is a joy to work with! She answered every question I had, no matter how tiny, in a timely fashion and made sure every request was taken care of. When I asked about adding a female singer and saxophone player, and how to play my grandfather's old singing recordings during the dinner break, she helped coordinate with ease. Barbara made me feel like family, and I cannot recommend her, and Peat Moss and the Fertilizers, enough!

Hands down the best wedding band there is. These guys and gal kept the party going the entire time! We had multiple people tell us after the wedding how much fun they were. Can’t wait to go see them live at a Bar one of these nights!

Peat Moss was just the best at our wedding. They were always playing to our crowd and the dance floor was packed the entire night. We had such a great experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for a fun band that gets the whole crowd going from start to finish.

Peat Moss had our dance floor packed all night. One of my guest said that at our wedding of 250 people, you could count on two hands the amount of people sitting down at any given time. They did a great job of reading the crowd and knowing what songs people in their 20s and 70s would all enjoy. Barbara Klein was great to work with, and always friendly and professional. You won’t regret choosing them for your wedding!

First of all... there was never a doubt in my mind that I would be using Peat Moss and the Fertilizers for my wedding band. Our wedding was last night and I'm writing this ASAP because I want to be able to express just how amazing they were. Barbara was always a pleasure to work with.. so helpful and easy to speak to. Thank you, Barbara! We did some non-traditional entrances into the reception hall, and I was able to speak with Greg from the band ahead of time to make sure everything would be perfect... and it was.

 

Gosh I don't even know how I can write just how wonderful they were. I've always enjoyed seeing them play at bars.. and I knew I wanted them at my wedding - long before I was engaged.

 

In fact, I booked them before I booked my venue. Their price is very reasonable compared to other bands and worth every penny. I've been receiving texts all day about how amazing the band was. These guys are so talented and the dance floor wasn't never empty. Even during dinner I just wanted to get up and dance. I am so thrilled with our easy decision to have Peat Moss and the Fertilizers at our wedding. I never had a doubt that they would be amazing - and they more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you so so so much for making our night the best ever. 

We had Peat Moss and the Fertilizers play at our wedding at the end of October and our friends and family are STILL talking about how incredible they were. When we started planning our wedding we knew as lovers of live music that we needed to have a band. After a brief search, my parents recommended Peat Moss and the Fertilizers because they went to a wedding they played at and said it was the best wedding band they've ever seen. We knew we wanted them! The process with Barbara was smooth and easy. She is very energetic and organized, we loved working with her! The band stole the show at our wedding. Our venue was definitely not local for the band (it was about two hours upstate) but they made the trek and set up early so their van would be out of site before our ceremony began. This meant so much to us that they were set up early and were ready to go! They were energized and got the crowd excited during our introductions, first dance, and parent dances. The magic happened though when they started playing. They immediately got people on the dance floor and no one left the dance floor until dinner was served. Their set list was well thought out and flowed so incredibly well. They fed off the energy of the crowd and played them exactly what they wanted to hear. They even learned three songs that we requested and we definitely hope that "Shipping Up to Boston" is added to their regular rotation because they absolutely crushed it and it was a highlight of the night. They were so down to Earth and awesome to talk with as well. They were easy going when it came to dinner time and they stayed to chat as they were cleaning up. They were absolutely incredible. We highly recommend you book Peat Moss and the Fertilizers for your next event because we can promise you that your guests will have a BLAST and will rave about the band for many months after!

I was so nervous to book a band - it can really make or break the night! But Pete Moss and the Fertilizers were incredible - people were talking about them all night and for weeks afterwards. They have amazing range, and learned new hits (T. Swift and Dua Lipa :) that we requested. 

SUCH a great choice - we loved them. And Barbara is a joy to work with. She was our nicest vendor when we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID. Highly recommend!

Barbara was amazing to work with! She was so helpful from the first phone call to our wedding day. We chose Peat Moss and the Fertilizers and they did not disappoint! Everyone is still raving about the band. They kept everyone on the dance floor all night. We were so happy they played every song we requested and even learned our wedding song. Thank you Barbara and Peat Moss and the Fertilizers for a perfect wedding!

We worked with Barbara to book the band Peat Moss and The Fertilizers for our wedding. The whole process was made so simple by Barbara, she was always quick to answer our questions. The band was amazing! I would recommend them to any other brides in the area, especially if you want everyone dancing

Barbara Klein was a fantastic talent agent, and the band represented -- Peat Moss and the Fertilizers -- they were incredibly talented, professional, and nice. I can't say enough about her or the band. They had a wide variety of songs we could choose from, and were able to tailor their set list to our wants. The band was a huge hit at our wedding. We had tons of guests talking about them the night of, and days and weeks after. Thanks, Barbara! I can't say enough good things about your or Peat Moss.

 

After a perfect ceremony, we were so ready for a perfect reception .. which it was, in great part due to "Peat Moss And The Fertilizers." They're the quintessential wedding band.

 

Letter perfect. Not too loud, but really rocking .. not overly sentimental but right in that sweet spot you want for such an important day. As Godfather of the bride, I so wanted the very best for her, and they really delivered. The dance floor was packed for every note of every tune. I emphatically recommend them. Did I say they were good?

Peat Moss and the Fertilizers were absolutely amazing at our September 7, 2018 wedding! My husband and I never left the dance floor! They were so fun, entertaining, and high energy. We were thrilled that they learned our first dance song and my father daughter dance song as the songs were not on their song list. It meant so much to us. They exceeded our expectations and guests are still raving about how fantastic they were!

 

Barbara at Omnipop was a pleasure to work with while planning our daughter's wedding. Barbara is a true professional. She was always available to answer any questions we had during the process. She is kind, caring and enjoyable to chat with. The band we hired was Peat Moss and the Fertilizers. We cannot say enough about them. They are so talented. and full of personality. They had everyone up and dancing the whole night. Barbara suggested we add a female singer. We took her suggestion and had the pleasure of Jackie singing along with Peat Moss and the Fertilizers. She is extremely talented as well. We have had so many people reach out to us expressing that it was the best wedding that they ever attended. We contribute a large portion of that to the band. If you are looking for a fun and talented band that will keep the party going, we suggest you hire Peat Moss and the Fertilizers. You will be glad you did!

Peat Moss and the Fertilizers did our wedding in NYC on May 18, 2019. We could not recommend them more! From start to finish our experience with the band was amazing! Barbara and the band listened to our every request, were wonderful at communicating with us and making us feel comfortable leading up to our big day. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music was all amazing! No one sat down all night as we danced the night away! The band even offered to learn the song we wanted our first dance to, no questions asked! We are still getting compliments from our guests about how great the band was! With how stressful wedding planning is, it was a breath of fresh air to deal with a company and band who was so responsive and really cared about making us happy on our big day!

Peat Moss and the Fertilizers (plus a 3 piece brass section) was absolutely incredible and a major highlight! We got (and are still getting almost a month later) so many compliments about them. They really made for a great celebration. They did an incredible job with our first dance song, that at one point my mom thought they weren’t playing since it sounded exactly like the recording. The dance floor was packed and barely anyone was sitting for more than dinner, and a few minutes for dessert. When the curfew set in and they were no longer allowed to play, no one was leaving and everyone offered to pay whatever the fine was if they would play another song! Some friends asked the band for a set list and gave it to us to keep as a memento the next day (highly recommend). We didn’t want the night to end but we’re lucky to have so many amazing memories. We really don’t have enough nice things to say. The band couldn’t have been better! Barbara was a pleasure to work and speak with during the planning process. She was always happy to answer questions and is a true professional. She answers honestly and won't lead you astray.

We hired Peat Moss and the Fertilizers for our wedding in July, based on seeing them at both my sister's wedding and another wedding. Barbara was attentive and very helpful during the planning process.

We hired the pianist to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour... he played beautifully!

We requested that the band learn two songs for us that were meaningful for our event. They did a fantastic job! Everybody danced for the whole time... the dance floor was never anything less than mobbed! I recommend Peat Moss and the Fertilizers to anyone who would like to have an upbeat band who plays every genre of music out there! They're so friendly, and flexible, and they helped to make the night.
