WE'RE DOING MORE THAN EVER!
We love our clients
Expert & Owner of Stonefield's Estates | Beckwith, Ontario
We have hired Ambush for a number of different occasions over the last 5 years. They have performed at our concert series, at our weddings and at our private parties. Each time, Ambush never ceases to amaze us. They have the ability to take an entire room filled with hundreds of people and get them all on the dancefloor the moment they start their first set. And with each and every event, they keep our guests on the dancefloor all night long! Their energy is infectious. Their talent is incredible. They make every event that much more special and fun. They have a really amazing way of pleasing a crowd and getting them involved in their show. They are extremely professional, kind, warm and friendly. All of our dealings with Mark were so easy and so pleasant and we just love working with them! We just love having them with us to celebrate special occasions and we cannot wait to have them back again!

National Workshop for the Canadian Institute for Procurement and Materiel Management.
Many thanks for your performance at the National Workshop for the Canadian Institute for Procurement and Materiel Management held at the Ottawa Convention Centre . AMBUSH was a fantastic addition to our Gala Dinner. Your play list was dynamic and lively and kept people dancing well into the night. However, it was your inclusion of our audience that raised the bar. It was a great idea to pull the select few from the audience and include them in your set. Seeing our Vice President on stage (who gave you a run for your money) was priceless and highly entertaining for our group. The performance was absolutely outstanding and enjoyed by all.
It was a real pleasure working with you as you were professional and truly accommodating throughout the entire process. If discussions on that evening are any indication, we will be sure to have you back again same time, same place next year!
The County of Carleton Law Association at Chateau Montebello.
We recently hired Ambush to play at a conference for the County of Carleton Law Association at Chateau Montebello. Although I have a day job, I have played in bands regularly for the past 25 years. I have seen many (many) bands. These guys were as professional as I have ever seen. They show up early, set up quickly and quietly, they don’t cause any issues or drama. They ask about ways to make the event better. Their set-up is professional and clean (no cables all over the place, cases are all stored away). They go above and beyond and earn every penny. They are all great musicians – the band sounded great from the first note to the last note. They display tons of energy and are very crowd conscious. The song selection was bang on. They were happy to take requests and basically do whatever was needed to make the night a great success. The crowd loved them and there was dancing right up until the last song. Most of all, they were really nice guys. I would definitely hire them again and I recommend them to anyone. If you want to make sure your night is a success, hire these guys… you won’t regret it!”
DJ from Quality Entertainment
This is my letter of recommendation for Ambush, if you’re looking for high energy show will a
very open and danceable style of music Ambush is the way to go, hands down! At the basic level, the sound quality is exactly what you want - crystal clear, crisp, loud and “feel-able”.. This in my opinion very much so adds to the overall ambiance of the band’s performance – It truly does create the atmosphere of being at a rock concert. It’s Fantastic!
Ambush also has good looking lighting that syncs to the music which also really and truly adds to the show. Performance wise, Ambush goes above and beyond from what I’ve seen from other bands, as DJ for over 15 years I get to see and also work along side many bands, I’ve worked along side Ambush at 6 or so events now and I think that Ambush goes beyond what most other bands offer with respect to their performances, They use wireless guitars/basses, wireless vocal microphones and they take advantage of the fact that this allows them to be mobile and will even get in the crowd from time to time to keep the energy high by “hyping” things up – They also will says things like “everybody scream” etc. as well as get the crowd to sign along, clap, jump and many other interactive instances with the audience!
Ambush truly does bring things to a whole new level! Also they have a tour bus….. come on! this is a REAL band!! If you would like to talk more with me about my referral of Ambush please feel free to contact me anytime.
