It's time to CELEBRATE... so it's time to call Marino Music!
Governor Bredesen’s Inaugural Ball
Diane and Frank,
Thank you for being part of a wonderful day! Diane, you have a beautiful voice
and you’re piano playing is exquisite. The jazz you both perform is great.
Balance Consulting, Inc.
Just a note to thank you for the entertainment you provided for the Balance Consulting 1099 National Tax Forum Conference held at the Nashville Convention Center in July 2005. I must admit I was concerned hiring morning entertainment from a company thousands of miles away. I received your company’s name, Marino Music< from the Renaissance Hotel along with a strong recommendation regarding your professionalism and the quality of your entertainers. I certainly was not disappointed. We couldn’t be happier with the musicians chosen to perform.
Working with Marino Music was easier than I had imagined. Frank seemed to understand just what I was looking for in entertainment and provided just that. Marino Music was easily accessible and returned calls and e-mails promptly. I would recommend Marino Music without hesitation. Thanks so much for all your help!

Som Brasileiro-“A Night in Rio”
Throw together a nine-piece band with Diane Marino’s tantalizing,
burning voice and you get one of the best sounds north of the border. Add
overtones of jazz with undertones of bossa nova to a happenin’ rhythm
section, pounding out a blend of Latin and African beats and you get the
Sounds of Brazil, or Som Brasileiro. Whether your familiar with Samba or
not, this band will cause energy to build up in your feet and you’ll
soon realize the passion of Carnaval. Even when the band slows the pace
you’ll feel the sensuous beat pulsating through your veins. If you’ve
never experienced the contagious samba beat as Som Brasileiro does it,
you’re missing out on the most invigorating sounds on the planet.

Crown Plaza Hotel
Diane & Frank-Marino Music-
I personally want to thank both of you for your excellent musicianship and professionalism, both musical and business, while performing for all the corporate and private banquets at the Crown Plaza Hotel in White Plains, New York. Your being able to perform in any given situation is a tribute to your complete professionalism.
I so enjoyed meeting you and listening to your jazz quartet at Harrah’s Casino. I have not stopped playing your CD’s-they are marvelous!
Thank you so much for your great music.
Good Company was fantastic! All of the comments received at the dance floor as well as the front desk were very positive. The comment that stands out in my mind was made by a lady at the end of the night when she said “she had attended the Barkley Bash for 10 years and that it was the best band that she had heard”! The fact that when you were playing, the dance floor was so full speaks for itself. Great job!

On behalf of Dismas Charities, Inc. and our 400 guests, I wish to thank you for a superb evening of entertainment. After experiencing your shows in Nashville I was very confident of how the Marino Jazz Quartet would enhance our Moonlight and Magnolias Derby Ball. In the true style of consummate professionals, the Marino Jazz Quartet provided richly engaging performances that brought many guests to share with me how much they enjoyed your musical talents. I look forward to working with you again as we plan future events.
