    Isabella and the band made my entire wedding so special! They played for our ceremony as well as our cocktail hour and everything was flawless. The timing of everything was impeccable. The music they played sounded angelic. I received multiple texts and calls for days after our wedding from our guests who said their favorite part of the wedding was Isabella and the band - I couldn't agree more! She is such a delight to work with and was happy to play songs that I requested! I would HIGHLY recommend using Isabella and her band for a wedding or any sort of celebration for that matter!

    Isabella and her band performed for our company's 60th anniversary party, and they were great! Not only was she easy to deal with, quick to contact, and totally professional, but she went above and beyond when we asked her to add some music from the year of our founding (1958). She was not only willing, but enthusiastic, in mixing that music in at the last minute. I highly recommend her!

    I contacted Isabella for a 40th birthday party of one of my best friends who is having a long battle with cancer . Isabella was so accommodating and flexible with music choices and planning of the party . Her beautiful soft voice combined with the piano made the event even more special and unforgettable for my friend and all of us . It was a one of life time experience!!

  • Knights of St. Patrick Banquet Chairman

    Knights of St. Patrick Banquet Chairman New Haven

    The Knights of St. Patrick Annual Banquet is a long-standing, historic tradition that takes place each year on March 17th for the past 139 years! Founded in New Haven in 1878, The Knights of St. Patrick is a nonprofit, charitable organization that helps promote the cultural traditions of Irish-Americans, and whose membership is open to all genders, religions, and ethnic affiliations. The heartfelt virtues of the original members are very much alive today. The Knights of St. Patrick constantly open their collective hearts and Club facilities to many worthy and charitable causes. The decorated and prestigious history of the club itself and the Annual Knights Banquet is archived and stored at the CT Irish Historical Society building at the Ethnic Heritage Center at Southern CT State University. As documented in the newspaper archives from the late 1800's - 1900's, it was the most Irish social event of the year. The "who-s who" throughout New England, New York, New Jersey and beyond were in attendance! The Knights of St. Patrick are deeply proud of this historic tradition and the current officers and members work passionately and persistently to preserve and honor all that the annual dinner represents. The only entertainment has been the renowned keynote speakers. But, the co-chairs of the event decided a couple of years ago to add musical accompaniment to the cocktail hour at the elegant New Haven Lawn Club where the recent dinners have taken place. Given the significance of this event to the club, the added element to this proud tradition could not be just anybody!! Isabella on piano has been the perfect accoutrement to the signature event of the Knights of St. Patrick. Her graceful piano selections are a beautiful backdrop to the cocktail hour. She knows the exact ambiance we wanted to created during this portion of the evening and executes it with sheer elegance. She is professional and reliable, and a lovely personality all around. It is a joy to work with her!

    "I booked Isabella for my son's communion celebration last year. It was a very intimate party with all our closest friends and family. From the moment I contacted her, she was extremely professional and was very detailed working with me making sure she understood what I wanted. I have to say that she absolutely did an amazing job! My friends and family still talk about this party and ask me all the time to throw another one with Isabella as the singer. The entire group was unbelievable, perfect sound, the songs were beautiful and it just created the perfect happy atmosphere where everyone was just having a great time. Isabella's voice is incredible. I recommend her highly and I guarantee that people will love it and will continue to talk about her beautiful music over and over! Her music will not only entertain your event or venue but will also brighten your soul. Love Isabella and will hire her again in future events!" - Carolina R., Cheshire CT

    Twice, we hired Isabella and her band (Sambeleza) for our company outing. They were spectacular, entertaining and extremely accommodating. Since our outing was held at a Beach Club facility located on the shoreline, the sound and music provided by Isabella and her group added to the ambiance and was the perfect touch for a great evening of entertainment. Isabella music can be described in one word .... sweetness.
