Once again, we had a wonderful celebration, first with our daughter's Bat Mitzvah 2 years ago and now with our son's Bar Mitzvah. Everyone no matter age or religion had such a terrific time. Our event felt so warm and inclusive, people are still talking about it. The biggest compliment though came from our son who midway through planning our event decided he wanted a big DJ party instead. So our compromise was the party with Lox and Vodka would be during the day for our relatives, our adult family friends and about 20 of his friends and then he can have that loud DJ party in the evening with all his friends. After all was said and done, he told me he enjoyed the Lox and Vodka party more! Your amazing energy, creativity and beautiful music kept everyone engaged. I truly enjoyed myself and just like the first time you helped us create absolutely wonderful memories. Thank you!

Hi Caron, I want to thank you so much for creating, managing, and performing an awesome simcha celebration for CJ and us!  Everyone had a fabulous time, and it was a fantastic success!  We are so grateful to you and the band for everything!  Cheers!

“Hi Caron, High praise from the seventh-grade set: Gabe tells me his friends reported to the child who was unable to make it on Saturday that she had missed "a wicked good party." Doesn't get any better than that! I'm sure you know that we all had a great time and you also know that it was because of your musicality and enthusiasm. Thank you for making the party exceed our expectations--we loved every minute of it. Hope your harried holiday season is thoroughly enjoyable--we look forward to crossing paths with you again.”

“Dear Caron,
A very special thanks to you and the band for transforming our event at the Ratner Museum into a very special Bar Mitzvah celebration for David.
Our guests of all ages took delight in the music, your energy/enthusiasm, and successful efforts at getting everyone up and dancing. The kids loved the games, and the adults enjoyed the nostalgic background music. The teaching dance numbers were a lot of fun. And our opening remarks were nicely accented with the band music.
Everything went off flawlessly -- OK with the possible exception of my starting to do the blessings out of order! I am also so appreciative of your performing Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope you Dance." My dancing along with David to this number was unanticipated and a very special way to end the evening.
Thank you and the others for EVERYTHING!”

Fondly, Ellen G.

“I just wanted to get back to you with another big THANK YOU! Caron, you and the band helped make our simcha all that we hoped it would be. I can't tell you the number of complements that we received about you and the band. The atmosphere that you created really made it a wonderful and Jewish event, and because of that Evan has a feeling that his Bar Mitzvah was something special. Of course, the opportunity that Evan had to play with the band was a great moment and will be a special memory that I am sure he will always have. Wow, you were all great ! Thank you again.”

Love, Lloyd and Marcy

“Caron, What a wonderful celebration we had! Leah's Bat Mitzvah was more than we could have ever hoped for, everyone felt a part of things, no matter their religion or age. So many of my guests have mentioned to me what a warm, inclusive event we had, which is no small feat with 160 people and it's all thanks to you.

“The most unforgettable part of the party for me was when you had our all of our guests form a big circle (which took up the whole room) before you taught us the Israeli dance steps and you told Leah to take a moment to look around and see all her family and friends who had come to celebrate with her. A number of our guests were moved to tears at that moment.

“Thank you for being so amazingly energetic and helpful beginning with the planning process and throughout the entire event. From managing 70 kids to personalizing the candle lighting to accommodating all of Leah's special requests, you helped us create truly wonderful memories.”

"Dear Caron: Saturday was a day that went fom joy to joy. My daughter was radiant and confident at the bima. I could not have been more pleased for her or proud for myself. The celebration that followed was a huge success. Everyone had such a wonderful time. You and your band received rave reviews. Back at my home on Saturday night and Sunday morning we were still enjoying the memories. ... Please feel free to use me as a reference. My son's Bar Mitzvah is 2 1/2 years away. If you are available, could you please send me a contract? Many thanks! PS - Glad I listened to you about dessert!"

Warmly, Beth

“Caron, Everything was fabulous!! Your band, the best. The Beatles music, my favorite besides the traditional Klezmer stuff. You were a great MC and my family has done nothing but call me on the phone, one by one, telling me that it was the best Bar Mitzvah that they had ever been to. I can't thank you enough.”

Love, Linda

“Dear Caron, Ernie and I wanted you to know how delighted we were with your music, your spirit, and your willingness to handle all scheduled 'events' at Candi and David's wedding reception! We received a large number of compliments from guests who enjoyed the klezmer music and the Israeli dancing...I was amazed how many folks got up to dance!! I believe because you telegraph such a sense of fun and because the music is so rousing that almost no one can resist joining in. Candi asked me to be sure to tell you how thrilled she and David were with the party--they had a blast!! Please pass on our thanks to all the guys in the band and keep us informed of your upcoming concerts!”

Sincerely, Ann

"Just beginning to recuperate from Saturday night but I wanted to let you all know that I didn't think you all were very good, I thought you all were absolutely fabulous. I thought that you just did a fantastic job and I just couldn't have been happier and really made the evening for everybody. A number of people made similar comments to me. So thank you, thank you, thank you and we'll be in touch again. Thanks."


“Caron, I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you did for our wedding reception. The groom's father raved about you during the wedding, and since the wedding all of our friends and family have all said, "...and the band was fabulous!" whenever they talked about the wedding. We can't thank you enough. Please feel free to give out my contact information as a referral.”

All the best! Jessica

“Thanks to your spirit and sensitivity, and the wonderful musicianship of your band, our wedding dinner-dance was the most loose and lively one I've ever been to -- and how nice that I can say that about my own wedding! So many people have told us that the opening Israeli dances were the best ice breakers they've ever experienced, and clearly they made for relaxed and spirited table conversation after, So again today rabah. Hope to see you soon!”

Warmly, Marilyn M.

“Dear Caron and Lox & Vodka Musicians, Our family wants to express our very great appreciation for all you did to make Adam and Einat Moskof's wedding such a warm, inclusive, fun, and unique celebration for everyone attending. I hope your collective ears have been burning because everyone who spoke to us at the time or subsequently has remarked about how much they enjoyed your music and the way in which you shaped a collection of friends and family from disparate backgrounds, ages, and interests into a cohesive group of celebrants moving to the same joyous rhythms and feelings. Our Israeli family members, friends who had not danced Israeli dances for years and those who had never danced them were alike enchanted with the experience of moving together.

“We also want to express our pleasure in the sensitivity you exhibited in selecting appropriate music and varying your selections. It was so pleasant to be able to dance to songs we had selected, to rely on your good judgement regarding the mood and preferences of the guests and to know that you would honor our request for keeping the sound volume within bounds. Caron, we are also grateful for your experienced hand guiding the wedding procession. Whenever we recall the day, we will remember you all with great affection.”

Sincerely, Patricia and Howard Einat and Adam

“Hello Lox and Vodka, I just wanted to express our belated thanks to you for making such great music at our wedding. We know that our set up (mechitza for the first set only) and the diversity of our guests presented a challenge, and you helped us to not only overcome it, but also to have a great evening all around. Everyone commented to us how much they enjoyed Lox and Vodka. Thank you for helping to make our wedding so special.”

Sincerely, Howard and Deborah
