The best compliment someone can pay to someone is a referral--for someone to take the time out of their busy schedule to jot down a note of thanks. Below are just a few things our clients are saying about TEA.
The most impressive thing is the number of endorsements from local musicians with whom we have had the pleasure of working with over the years. They are important to us because musicians know what to expect from an entertainment agency. They have worked with many agencies and have acquired general working know- ledge of what goes on behind the scenes. They are in a unique position to recognize a job well done.
TEA has been receiving handwritten thank you notes since way before the Internet. Should you wish to see more, please ask. We'll be happy to supply you with as many as you need.
"We thank you so very much for all of your help in making this event a huge success. Folks loved the strolling performers for cocktails and the Jazz Quartet for dinner as well as the comedian. Thank you for keeping on top of everything. You were always so quick and thorough with your responses. Thank you for all of your help the day of the event as well. Thank you again for making it such a wonderful evening." Kennethra Bell Corporate 75th Anniversary Party
"Fabulous! I want to take this moment to tell you that our performer was simply superb- exceeding all of our expectations! Team player, music selection and presentation all made him a big hit at our company party this past Saturday I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Thank you for putting this together and we look forward to working with you again in the future. Sincerely, Michelle Hansen" Corporate Seasonal Party Call to see who they hired!
"Being responsible for our Christmas Party was a huge undertaking and a bit overwhelming until I found Triangle Entertainment. With one phone conversation, Michelle had me on their website looking at bands, listening to music, and examining song list. The whole process went from stressful to actually fun. We were able to take her recommendations and choose the perfect band for our Company Holiday Party! We danced all night and it appeared that I knew what I was doing. I have already been designated as next years coordinator and I know I'll be going back to Triangle for their services. I would highly recommend Triangle and Michelle King to you if you are searching for live entertainment." Sarah Goodyear Corporate Seasonal Party - (300 guests) Call to see what band Sarah hired!
"We thoroughly enjoyed having Big Chief perform at Bob's big b-day party, and several guests told us how much they enjoyed them, too! In fact, I'd be interested in knowing where to catch them around town. Please put me on their performance e-mail distribution list (if such a thing exists). You were a pleasure to work with, Michelle, and I wouldn't change a thing about how you do your job. You're a pro and working with Triangle Entertainment Agency was easy and your recommendation of Big Chief was right on target. Thank you! Diana Denton" Hired for husband's B-day party
"Just wanted to thank you guys for doing an incredible job and let you know how much everyone complimented the band all night and ever since then. Please let Mike and Gary know as well that their talents did NOT go unnoticed! We appreciate the professionalism and great tunes you guys provided for our reception. TEA was fantastic and you were very easy to work with. Thanks for all your time and patience dealing with me as it was a difficult decision to make. Take care and good luck in the future!" Brandon Norris In-home Wedding Reception
"The performer you sent us did an AMAZING job on Cinco! Arrived on time in-spite of horrendous weather. He was also great with the children getting them to interact with the magic and slight of hand performance. The music was perfect for the adults too! Who would have thought one performer could do all that? Very impressive. Thank You! Matt Breeding" Restaurant / Entertainment for Cinco de Mayo
"I came to Michelle at Triangle Entertainment with an absurdly short deadline and ambiguous requirements for a band. I don't want to encourage anyone to be as difficult a client as I was, but my experience shows just how capable Michelle is and just how enjoyable the band can was. Less than two weeks before my fraternity's biggest annual event, I contacted Michelle in desperate search of a band. She worked tirelessly to interpret my requests and produced a short list of recommendations complete with samples. Eventually, we decided on the band that would be perfect entertainment for us. From there, MIchelle and the band handled every detail making organization absolutely effortless on my part. On the night of our event, the band stole the show. We had planned to cut them off and finish the night with a special DJ set, but no one dared interfere with the atmosphere they had created. By the end of their setlist, my guests were demanding more and the band was happy to oblige. It seemed that they, somehow, were managing to have as much fun as we were. I would undoubtedly recommend the band and Michelle on their individual merits. Together, they are a well-tuned machine and a pleasure to work with. Good luck, Tom" Call to find out what band they hired.
"I have worked with Michelle King over the 20 years. She has booked top name entertainment for me over the years and when I threw a "curve ball" at her about the concept of the Icon of Jazz Series she came through with "flying colors" and assisted me in placing my restaurant Cappers on the map as a top rated Jazz establishment. I would recommend Michelle King for any entertainment needs you may desire. She is a true professional in her industry." Karl Ritz Owner Cappers Restaurant
"TEA is Awesome to work with! Work on any budget any music. I had a last minute cancellation of a guitarist. I found TEA through on the web and they got right to work on finding me someone. Michelle is awesome to work with, she worked over the weekend, kept me in the loop about everything and found someone for me 7 days before my party. Same kind of music that I wanted and everything. Process is straight forward and easy. She was always ready to take my call if I had any questions. They made sure the artist had directions, and all specifics, and even better they had the set list too. I would use them again for sure." Jackie V.

"Michelle, Thank you so much for all of your help. The DJ you suggested was fabulous and my family has nothing but great things to say about how he went above and beyond for our wedding. My brother, Ken couldn't say enough good things about him. Ken & my dad were able to see and hear the entire ceremony as if they were right there( tears). You gave me a very special gift that day, better than any gift I could ever imagine. It's always a girls dream that her father would be with her on her wedding day and you gave me that. I can't possibly express what that means to me and to my family. The staff at the hospice center in Canada where my father was, were quite excited by the events as they have never done anything like that before. My understanding is that they plan to use this ( Skype) for future hospice patients. It's like a gift really. We truly appreciate everything you all did for us. Thank you, Jen and Josh Hayward" DJ / Musician Package Post wedding talk has been that the music was great! Again, Thank you! The piano music was also very nice and worked out beautifully for our procession -thank him for learning all the music that I requested.
"Dear Michelle, Buddy and I want to "THANK YOU," for the great job you did to make our 50th Anniversary a BIG success. We received many compliments regarding the DJs music, and everyone had a terrific time including Robin (bartender) & David (manager). Robin said she would've love to join in with dancing, & David was out of breath when he watched our folks on the dance floor. Arie, who is the Siena Manager,said, "I couldn't believe when I walked in & everyone was dancing and having a great time." Your music & customer service made this happen, and if ever we have another big party, be sure you will be contacted. Thanks, again to both of you. Best Regards, Mary and Buddy" October 8th, 2011 Hired DJ
"I've been meaning to send you a note to thank you for doing such a great job and for being so attentive, patient and flexible. Everyone loved the music! Your customer service is great and offered me a peace of mind- money could not buy! Your music selection was amazing and I received nothing but compliments. I knew that it would be good. If we ever get another chance to have a party, I will certainly call you. Thank you also for the on-site consultation and your help with planning the set up and decorating. Not expected but it was a big help. Take care and let me know if I can help you with future referrals." Connie Tillman Hired: DJ for Birthday Party.

"Everything was absolutely perfect (except for the hot weather). The band was terrific!! Lots of people asked me where I got the band. They performed all the appropriate songs from the 60s, that we had chosen in advance. They were very polite to work with and the pianist played his fingers off and the band sang up a storm!! We even had an employee who got up and “sang”. She must have gotten caught up in the moment as she is not really know for her singing ability."
