The BEST entertainment that we have ever had in our 50 years of running conferences…The Vic Ferrari Band was simply awesome!! They kept the dance floor hopping the entire night, and the interaction between the band and our attendees was fantastic…THANK YOU…THANK YOU, for making our “50th Anniversary Conference” the best ever.
Gentlemen – I’ve been swamped all week and am only now getting around to sharing how very pleased we all are here with Friday night’s show. It was unique, exciting, and very well done. We were proud to present it on our stage, and hope to do it again in the future. VIC FERRARI’S SYMPHONY ON THE ROCKS works very well in a PAC (performing arts center) setting. I will happily advocate this to anyone who asks, or offer you a formal testimonial if that would be useful in marketing this marvelous evening of entertainment. Additionally, working with all of you was a true pleasure. Thanks, and best wishes!, Executive Director, Capitol Civic Centre
Greetings! Thank you (and the rest of the group) for such a memorable and enjoyable concert!! I cannot begin to tell to you how special it was to see Capitol patrons so engaged with a performance. The night was, truly, electric and so much fun. I spoke with all of the Capitol Board members who attended and they were thrilled; you made their night (and, possibly, the entire season, to be candid). And, our sponsors (sitting in much of the two front rows) spoke so highly about the show; they were so excited and proud to be involved.
I saw many new faces in the audience; people who are not our regular patrons. This is so meaningful from the standpoint of sharing the bliss of live performance with those who don’t typically visit the Capitol. It’s also essential in supporting what the Capitol can offer as a performing arts venue. Yes; we can rock (as you demonstrated so perfectly on Friday).
I thoroughly enjoyed working with all of you. It was clear from our initial meeting that you are all true professionals who care deeply about sharing your talents and ensuring that the enjoyment of the show lasts far beyond the final note of the encore. And, it certainly will! Again, thank you for everything!, Marketing Director, Capitol Civic Centre
Dear Presenters, I’m sharing an accolade for a show (special event) that did very well for us last month (; their success here should be easily transferrable to other venues. To clarify: I have no vested interest in this group or in any of their bookings.
The VIC FERRARI band is well-known throughout much of Wisconsin, and various other parts of the country. They are excellent musicians who do great covers of classic rock. But it’s the larger VIC FERRARI SYMPHONY ON THE ROCKS show that we just presented. This show puts a hand-selected symphony orchestra behind the band – it’s a powerful evening of really exceptional music. They worked with us to select some local high-caliber musicians for some of the instrumentation, adding to the appeal in this community.
Certainly a familiarity here with VIC FERRARI was a big part of the success. But it’s an excellent show regardless. SYMPHONY ON THE ROCKS exceeded our expectations for quality, and met our expectations for income (sponsorships matter). And the audience—mostly baby boomers, but many younger, spanning professionals to biker types—LOVED IT big-time. The leaders of VIC FERRARI really extended themselves at every phase of event planning and execution. They care about the music; they care about the performance; they care about the venue doing well. They are looking to do more PAC type gigs. We plan to bring them back next year. Oh—our bar sales that night were about 2.5 times our previous record one-night bar. I’d be happy to share a contact person with the band if you wish to know more. Just shoot me an email. Thanks!, Executive Director, Capitol Civic Centre
