Hi Chirsoula,
We wanted to thank you and the band for everything last Saturday. You all did such an incredible job! It was exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for keeping the dance floor full every time you were up there, engaging with the crowd, keeping the kefi alive all night, working well with the dj, etc. Everyone loved the music and danced their butts off (including us). You helped make our night so amazing and memorable!

Thank you!!!

Dear Xrysoula, Demetris and Rythmos Band,I wanted to let you know how incredibly pleased I was with the entertainment you provided for my son’s wedding at Trump Chicago Hotel on May 23, 2015. From the very beginning and during the planning phase I found you to be extremely pleasant and incredibly easy to work with. You assured me that everyone would enjoy the performances and you absolutely delivered! While ours was a traditional Greek wedding, the majority of guests were American and experiencing our culture for the first time. I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments I received from our guests. Of course it should have been evident from the dance floor as there was virtually no room to spare and people were having a ball. Your ability to make people want to have fun “Kefi” was fabulous. Many things go into a successful wedding atmosphere: food, venue, service and entertainment to name a few. I definitely hit a home run because the guests were treated to an elegant evening with all the cultural trimmings and your band played the pivotal role. The music was brilliant, and when the singing started, many thought it was a recording as the sound was spot on. Excellent entertainment during cocktails, dinner, and of course the dance sets. All were wonderfully talented musicians, very professional and exceeded my expectations. I have never had this much fun at an event and while I admit I missed out on some family photo opportunities, I spent most of my time on the dance floor and loved it!!!
Many, many thanks

Several times this past year, Rhythmos has graced, Koukla’s Kafenion, our luncheon venue for our Seniors. Their talents, genuine warmth and their engaging style has brought much joy to all that have attended these events. They not only bring their music and song, they bring back memories for our parishioners. Xrysa’s voice and her caring enthusiasm have filled the room with ‘kefi’ each time. Thank you Rhythmos!

Yia sas Xrysoula kai Demetri. We just wanted to drop a note and say thank you very much for the amazing night this past Sunday! We and our guests loved your band and the addition of the violi was perfect to include the mix of traditional laika and island music. We received numerous compliments that night and during the week. So thank you for the intimate wedding as we wanted it to be as old school and traditional as possible. Thank you for making it happen and we hope you enjoyed it as well. Until the next event!

We had the greatest LIVE Greek band playing. The Greek band Rythmos played all night with the perfect volume, repertoire and dance music. A truly amazing addition to an already beautiful evening…EVERYBODY danced, including me.
Rythmos did an amazing job at keeping everyone on the floor yet not overbearing where conversation was impossible. They wrapped up the edges to a wonderful evening of good friends and great food. Highly recommended for private gatherings. Super highly!!!

Dear Chrisoula and the Rythmos band members. We cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful time at our daughter’s wedding. The entertainment at any function can make or break a celebration. We picked your band to play at our daughter’s wedding because of your wonderful enthusiasm, your great music abilities and your kefi. My future son-in-law wanted a specific zeibekiko played for his dance to my daughter. Within three weeks you all learned the song and performed it flawlessly. Your music is breathtaking, and makes everyone want to stay and dance. In addition, we were amazed as to how easy it was to work with you and set up the music for our wedding. Chrisoula you are just a joy to work with and I wish we had another personal function to bring you and your group back to Albuquerque. Thanks to your band you made our beautiful wedding spectacular!! Love you!!

There aren’t words to describe what an amazing atmosphere the Rythmos team brought to our wedding day! It was a feeling felt across the party, and days after, how amazing the live Greek music was and what “kefi” it brought to the wedding. During the biggest zebekiko circle I’ve ever been apart of, Xrysoula, the lead singer, pulled up a seat with her mic and joined us in the middle of the party! The band played according to the vibe and rhythm of the guests dancing the night away. The music never stopped, and we all felt like we were in Greece dancing in the bouzoukia. Xrysoula and Demetris were so great throughout the planning process and met with us a couple weeks before our big day to customize the type of music we were planning to have.
Thanks, Rythmos, for making our wedding celebration a night to remember! We look forward to seeing you at another event soon!

We recently invited Rythmos to play at our “Night at the Bouzoukia” event and were blown away. Xrysoula and her bandmates had the crowd on their feet and our guests danced until the very end, when we reluctantly had to send them home. The weather outside may have been blustery and cold, but you’d never know it from the ‘kefi’ inside. It was a great pleasure to work with Rythmos and we look forward to having them play for us again. Bravo to a fantastic Greek entertainment group!

Dear Xrisoula, Dimitri and Rythmos Band Members,Just to say efharisto poli does not express my gratitude to all of you for making my daughter Angela’s wedding day an  “over the top”  event. My God, your music is fabulous.  Xrisoula, your voice is fantastic  The rest of the band was indescribable.  All of the songs you played got the entire crowd in such a mood….kefi is an understatement.!!! Albuquerque has never seen such a band–the whole town is talking about you all. Thank you thank you thank you for coming here and making this a wedding to remember.  All of my dreams as a mother and planner of the wedding were truly fulfilled. I love Greece, I love the Greek culture —I am proud of my roots and today I am even prouder. My love to you all.  If ever I can do something for you, let me know.

A wedding band that is culturally relevant for both of us!
When planning our wedding, we knew we wanted a reception that would have the whole party dancing.
When I decided to have a big Greek wedding, I knew that live music was the best way to set the tone. My husband’s family is from Cyprus and we knew we had to impress our international guests. Rhythmos was absolutely the way to go. I was worried about choosing the right music because I am less familiar with Greek music however, they knew exactly what songs to play and when. In fact, before the wedding, they came to meet me and my husband to go over music selections and our wedding itinerary. It really helped me feel confident about the music selections and I felt more at ease about the event. They even reached out to my side of the family and agreed to play recorded American music for my guests as well.
Because of their understanding and taking the time to get to know us personally, they were able to keep all our guests entertained the entire event. There was one point when the whole party was on the floor! This was just what we wanted!
I can’t thank Chrisoulla and Demitris enough for their talents and professionalism. Their efforts truly helped to make my reception memorable and fun.

I thoroughly enjoyed performing Xrysoprasino filo with the band for Dino and Emily’s wedding Saturday night. The arrangement was really good and I appreciated the instrumental melodic duets that highlighted the melody. Thank you both very much for the opportunity! I’d love a chance to perform with you again! Rythmos Band is excellent, and I so enjoyed your singing Xrysa! Dimitri, you are the backbone of the group! Our expression in Italian for your future engagements is “Tante belle cose”!
