We thoroughly enjoyed having you play at our wedding reception. Our guests continue to rave at how much they enjoyed dancing (or listening for those who didn’t dance) to your fabulous “mixes”, how “tight” you all played together, and how personable all of you were. We knew we picked the right band and sure enough you pleased music lovers spanning age 15 months to 80. We especially appreciated your professionalism and most of all for playing “A Little Less Conversation” – IT WAS STUPENDOUS!!! I am forwarding your contact information to a list of vendors for future clients looking for a rockin’ band! Many Thanks, to have you there and help make our night a most memorable one for us and our family and friends. All our best.

We’ve booked these guys for multiple parties and events, including our wedding in 2011. They’re always professional, on time and easy to work with. Dean and his crew really know how to rock the house and keep the dance floor full with a variety of great tunes. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again or recommend them to anyone. If you’re looking for great live musical entertainment for any event you can’t go wrong.

Smoking Cobras really helped make our wedding a success. It was easy to plan with them and without giving them a song list they seemed to know exactly what we were looking for that night. Weeks later we still have guests commenting on the music and how great the band was that night. Highly recommended.

GREAT JOB at the Tachi Palace tonight guys! I got to meet Dean last night… good folks, highly recommend for events that will light a fire under collective rear-ends. Trust me, when you can get VIP gamblers out onto the dance floor instead of sending them to the slots you are doing something right.

In April 2014, we had a 50’s theme Tenant Appreciation Event. I was looking for a band who could deliver an energetic 50’s set for our approximate 700 guests. The Smokin Cobras exceeded my expectations. They were on time, dressed for the occasion and had my guests dancing. Being in a band myself, I can honestly say this is a very talented group of musicians and singers. A plus is Dean always responded to calls and e-mails in a timely manner. I highly recommend “The Smokin Cobras” for your next event!

I would highly recommend the Smokin’ Cobras after having used them for a recent corporate event. They were professional, fun and really engaged our group when on the dance floor. The music was great and the band brought so much energy, that event with a small event, people were out dancing. They love what they do and will do a great job for you!

We hired The Smokin’ Cobra for our company party. The were wonderful! They got most of our company up and dancing which was a real surprise. They took many requests with no problem. Our President says he wants to have them back for our Holiday party! Can’t wait!

It was a lot of fun to have you there. Everyone was buzzing it up on Monday about how great the party was and how good the band was. Appreciate everything and how easy you were to work with. A few of the folks have already looked you up on the web and found that you play out at the casinos in Temecula and they might come out to see you!! Thanks for giving us an excellent performance.

The Smokin’ Cobras rocked La Palma!! Whether your crowd is young or young at heart they will be dancing and singing along with Dean, the lead singer of the Smokin’ Cobras, from the first to the last song. The buzz from the crowd was this was the BEST band City of La Palma has booked! Their performance is high energy, family friendly and A LOT of fun! Be ready to sing and dance right along with them!

The City of Rancho Cucamonga was extremely pleased to work with The Smokin’ Cobras for our 2014 Summer Concerts in the Park. We truly appreciated their professionalism and energetic delivery, providing a top-notch performance and captivated the hearts of our Rancho Cucamonga residents. We were so excited to see and hear all the rave from our residents about The Smokin’ Cobras. They were fun, energetic, connected well with the audience, and most of all brought great sound and entertainment to our city. The Smokin’ Cobras proved why they have been called “California’s coolest Rockin’ Oldies review.” Dean Simone and the rest of the band were full of charm and love for their work and the audience. The City of Rancho Cucamonga was thrilled to have them in the 2014 line-up.

Smokin Cobras performances are simple: Rock and Roll at it’s finest. Awesome group of musicians. They have played for our Park After Dark Summer Concerts Series for three consecutive years, and their music is always well receive by the audience.

I have received many positive comments about your band and how it made the 9/11 ceremony meaningful and enjoyable for those in attendance…. thanks in part to the talented performers who help us offer quality entertainment at our ceremonies. I know I speak for my City Council colleagues in offering our heartfelt thanks for your performance.

Dean and The Smoking Cobras were amazing!!! They made my 40th birthday party a huge hit! The music was sooo good, they had amazing energy, and we just could not stop dancing! Everyone at the party told me how awesome the band was and wanted to book them at their next event. Thank you for making my birthday so special!!!!

I hired The Smokin’ Cobras for one of the most important days of my life – my 50th birthday bash last August! The guys ROCKED the place and had people dancing all night! Their mix of rock n’ roll, Southern Rock and a taste of country made it possible for everyone to enjoy. They were professional, on time and very courteous to the people there. I got so many compliments for hiring them, but they did all the work! Thanks, Dean, for making my night so memorable. I can’t imagine another party without your band! Now, I have to think up excuses to hire you again!!!

The Smokin Cobras were great, they were excellent. Everybody at my daughter’s quinceanera loved them and wanted to know how to hire them. The great thing is The Cobras do all kinds of music for the old and young… our guests of all ages loved them.

Dean and the band played for our Fourth of July party at Bayside Village –over 300 people– and everyone loved them. They did a variety of tunes and got us dancing, foot stomping and singing along. This is their second year and we hope to have them back again.

Smokin Cobras did a gig for us in Camarillo and they were a great band. Everyone liked them and we have already invited them for a return engagement.

I can not express in words my gratitude for you and your band at your Happy Days event on Saturday night at St. Peters. Not only great entertainment, but a true class act and good people!

Thank you to all of you for making our first annual Spring Fling Dance such a success! You really made our event so special to our students, families, staff, and community. With playing all of our favorite 50’s rock and roll songs, you got everyone up, dancing and singing along! Thank you, also, for taking the time to ensure a personal touch to our event. From ensuring our school name was pronounced correctly to learning about our school culture, our community felt embraced with such class. We can not thank you enough. We will definitely have you come back next year.
