“I would recommend using Magnolia Entertainment to anyone, every experience I’ve had working with Joshua has been great. He guides me in the right direction pairing the best artists with the event I’m planning.  And he has collected a great selection of artist to choose from.  Professional, courteous and talented!!!”

"I recently used Magnolia Entertainment to book a jazz trio for a small event.  Everything from start to finish was flawless and in an event planner’s world, this is rare!  Joshua helped to book the jazz trio and he was very responsive and easy to work with.  The music was excellent and got rave reviews from all of our attendees.  I was very impressed with Magnolia Entertainment and I highly recommend them to anyone!"

"We hired Joshua Gouzy and Showarama Gypsy Jazz for our wedding.  They were great to work with and were completely flexible when I asked if they would mind accompanying my family friend who was going to sing a couple songs during our ceremony.  She is a professional singer and she was raving about how great they were to work with.  They played beautiful classical music for the ceremony and then switched to jazz for our cocktail hour after the second line.  All of my guests the next day were saying how great they were. I would highly recommend them for your wedding day.”

"Working with Magnolia Entertainment is always a great experience, from the professionalism of their management team to the very talented musicians that they staff. We had a custom request this past New Year's Eve for a trumpeter to play along with our DJ, and Magnolia Entertainment delivered on that request promptly and efficiently. The trumpeter was fantastic and truly wowed the crowd with his talent! We would love to have him, and any other Magnolia Entertainment musician back in the future."

"I seriously cannot recommend Magnolia enough! They talk to you about what kind of music you want at your event (we chose a New Orleans jazz trio with minimal singing for our rehearsal dinner) and they deliver some of the best entertainment around. I found them to be easy to communicate with, professional, and lovely in person. They truly enhanced the ambiance of our rehearsal dinner, and our friends COULD NOT stop talking about how great the band was. I want to go back to New Orleans every year and have a party where they play. Highly recommend them for any events."

"The Magnolia Entertainment Jitterbugs were absolutely amazing! The Jitterbug is an oldie but goodie and perfect for our classic New Year’s Eve Great Gatsby Theme Event. I was very impressed by the professionalism of the entertainers, they love what they do and it shows.  From the talent to the poise, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Magnolia Entertainment and will use them for future events and I highly recommend them."
