Hello Henry,

Luda and Klara were absolutely wonderful. They were professional, elegant, kind, punctual and, best of all, extremely talented. We are very thankful for their performance and for your organizing the event at such a short notice.

Thank you!

His violin was the perfect, elegant touch for our ceremony!

Thank you so much for your professional services. We were really pleased with our violinist, Michael R. He was very professional and communicated with us frequently prior to the wedding to make sure all our needs were met. Highly recommend him. He made sure to play all the songs we requested and even added two that were not on his list..

Phenomenal!!! Can't wait to hire again.

Michael was beyond professional. He arrived 15 minutes early, was a delight to us and the crowd and everyone enjoyed his choice in music! He read the attitude of the room and tailored that to the songs he played. 10/10 would recommend The Internationals, and Michael!

Client Review
Very please with Mike's performance and professionalism of the company. He played during our cocktail hour, and it looked very classy to my guest. Mike did a nice job playing also. They give you a list of songs that you can choose from, and you can suggest some songs to see if the pianist can play it. My pianist called me in advance (closer to the wedding date) to make sure we were on the same page, which I thought was a nice touch.

It was a hit!

We had Arkady play the accordion at our backyard Oktoberfest party this past weekend and he was a hit! The ambiance he created was wonderful, he was personable and the guests loved him! He also took requests graciously and mingled so well I forgot he wasn't a guest of ours. The whole experience was great, easy and straightforward.

Absolutely incredible musicians!

My husband and I struggled to hold back our tears when we heard our song being played as we walked down the aisle. We couldn't be happier with the professionalism and ability to adapt to our Persian ceremony. I would absolutely recommend The Internationals a million times over!

Wonderful Experience

We had Michael come out to perform for our anniversary dinner. I asked for Italian music to bring back memories from our honeymoon in Italy. He was extremely talented and professional. The music was outstanding! We really enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend this company to anyone!

It was perfect!!! So very happy!

I hope he knows how special he made our day and so happy to keep him as a surprise to my groom to enjoy as well.  We loved how he worked with our pianist and vocal singer.

A perfect touch to the proposal!

My proposal could not have gone any better than it did. Arkady was very professional and prepared thoroughly for the day. Both, him and Henry, communicated with me throughout the process to make sure that plans were perfect and that there would be no hiccups when my fiancé arrived for the proposal. The music was beautiful and Arkady mixed in my requests with some of his classics and the collaboration worked FLAWLESSLY. I was very impressed with these guys and will seek them out for future services. GREAT JOB GUYS!

Wonderful violinist!

The Musical Christmas melodies played were a perfect touch to Our dinner party. Professional, talented, and the repertoire of music selections beyond my expectations. He even played my grandfathers violin that had not been played in years and was used in silent films. Thank you for making the event very memorable !

A nice two piece add-on to our event.

The two piece band (accordionist and violinist) were a nice addition to our line up of entertainment. They performed during the cocktail hour and during dinner. The whole process was easy. I signed a contract with a small deposit a few months before. They called to confirm two weeks before. They arrived an hour before their start time to set-up. When they played, they were good. They music was enjoyable. It was the perfect addition to the dancing music that followed dinner. I would hire them again.

Outstanding

Henry worked with me late into the night to book an accordion player and singer for my son's burial. Arkady and Kyle had only two days notice but performed the song, "Losing You" beautifully. It was a wonderful tribute to my son and was a nice moment during an extremely difficult time. We were also much later to cemetery than I thought we would be, but they were both very understanding. Thank you.

Henry, thank you very much for all the help getting Arkady and Kyle to perform at the cemetery, they were wonderful. The song was a fitting tribute to the impact our son had on us. I greatly underestimated how long the service would be and how long it would take to get the procession going, so we were over an hour late to the cemetery, but Arkady and Kyle were very understanding and I am very thankful for that. Thank you again.

only superlatives

I can only give superlatives:
-- Arkady (of The Internationals) has a huge repertoire in the genre requested.
-- His performance was lively, and he sounded really good.
-- He interacted with the attendees well, and he was full of smiles.
-- He was on-time and he made simple setup requests with no demands.

Professionals through and through

In my experience booking programs/performers for libraries, this may have been the easiest. The Internationals delivered on every agreement and performed wonderfully. We booked them to play outdoors and despite winds and overcast skies, they performed happily and with no incident. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Mr. Sergienko and his musicians!

The Internationals played beautifully during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The musicians got sheet music to match the music I wanted perfectly. At the rehearsal, we practiced the processional along to a youtube recording of the song. At the wedding, they sounded just like the recording, so everything went very smoothly! We have received many compliments on the musicians. Henry and I communicated for months, reviewing which instruments to use for the ceremony, which songs to play, etc. I was impressed Henry actually came to my ceremony to ensure everything went as planned!

We were very pleased with the professional performance on keyboard and accordion by Mikhail Antoshin. He was a very pleasant man and very talented. He even came over to the table and sat in front of my 95 year old mother, whose birthday it was, and sang a song to her while playing the accordion. We would hire him again for an event. The only thing I wish is that he had played the accordion more, but we didn't ask him to or he probably would have. We highly recommend hiring Mikhail for your party.

Thank you for recommending Michael (accordionist) for my Dad's 65th Birthday Party. He arrived early, warmed up, and played some excellent music. My dad was up and dancing and soon the rest of the party guests joined in even little kids formed a circle. For one person that is quite a feat. Excellent experience with booking and communication as well. Definitely would recommend!

We hired Mikhail from the Internationals to play the accordion for our father's 87th birthday party. What a terrific performance. He was punctual, professional and talented. It was apparent Mikhail had prepared for the party. He had anecdotes and facts about the music he played. The hour and a half flew by! He really set the tone of the party and everyone throughly enjoyed his performance. Setting the date and getting the contract together was a breeze as well, thanks to Henry. He responded quickly and was also very professional. We appreciate your group and would recommend these musicians to anyone looking to add a little fun to a party.

Nina made our party a success. Although it was an 80th birthday celebration, there were all ages, and she was able to play to all. It was like she was one of the family. We were very pleased and look forward to using her for future functions. I would recommend her for any party.

Henry was our contact person, and his communication was excellent. Anyone planning a wedding knows how important that it. The musicians (cello, violin, piano) were on-time (early, actually), played beautifully, looked professional, and were polite. They were reasonably priced as well. Highly recommended.

Hi Henry,
We wanted to thank you so much for  helping us with music for our wedding celebration! Arkady was an incredible pianist, and provided beautiful songs for the ceremony itself, as well as for the full hour of cocktail party following ceremony, before dinner began.  He was extremely professional and so easy to work with. When we weren't sure about what songs to play at certain times of the ceremony, he was  always helpful to suggest options for us.  He was very knowledgeable, talented, and professional.  The cocktail party piano music was just beautiful, and added class and elegance to the whole atmosphere. Our guests were very impressed!

And Alex's band was absolutely incredible! They played everything we wanted them to play, and had so many great suggestions for us that we hadn't even thought of.  They were flexible, organized, professional, fun, and incredibly talented musicians!. The breadth of music that played was so vast, from jazz during dinner to party music for dancing until the bar closed down!  We couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was!!!! We still keep hearing comments from family and friends about the band, and I think Alex and his band now have many new fans after this wedding! We will be looking to catch Alex again on the Chicago  music scene!  Thanks again guys, you really were incredible! You helped make our night special!

I can't say enough about what a fantastically talented and professional group The Internationals are. I hired their violinist and double bassist to play my girlfriend's (now fiance) and my favorite song as I proposed to her. Between almost 100 emails back and forth, Henry and I were able to set everything up perfectly, even though I was organizing the event from Oregon to take place in Chicago. Everything went 100% smoothly. The music was beautiful and the musicians were dressed to the hilt. If you need to hire one or more musicians for any event, I would absolutely recommend The Internationals without a doubt. I would hire The Internationals again in a heartbeat! :)

Great performers, very professional and affordable

I had a violinist and a cellist play at my wedding and they were very professional. They had a big repertoire of songs and even played some that I requested.

Furthermore, there was no problem from the performers playing at out ceremony outside. They then traveled to the reception inside and did a great job and the throughout the 4 hours they pl ayed at our cocktail hour and dinner in which they sounded great and were very professional.

I would choose to have performers from the Internationals play for me anytime. The best thing was that we did not have to stress out about the music we told them what we wanted and they pulled it off flawlessly.

Hi Henry!
Sorry for the late response, but we left right after the wedding for our honeymoon and just got back. 

We LOVED the musicians! They were extremely professional and played beautifully! I know they only had a few weeks to learn a few of the songs, but they sounded flawless. We had guests come up after to tell us that they loved the ceremony music. My only regret is that I wish I would have walked down the aisle slower so I could have heard more of Cannon in D :) I was so nervous, I walked too fast!

Thank you very much and I hope you can share my above email with the 2 musicians.

Best,
Kayley and Doug







The violinists were absolutely wonderful and added such a special element to our outdoor wedding ceremony. They were also a hit during the cocktail hour before the reception. We also appreciated that they checked in a few days before the wedding to ensure our expectations will be met. Thank you!

Yes we thought he was very very very good!

Arkady came early to check out venue and where he would be playing.

He arrived on time and set up quickly. My family really enjoyed his accordion music. He had a wide array of songs he played (ex: Italian, polish, russian, german, etc.).

This was for my in-laws 50th Anniversary luncheon and everyone was delighted with the background music. It was a hot day and we were in yard; he came inside to the kitchen and stood in doorway and was outside as well. He was able to move around with people and the volume of the instrument was not over powering. People were able to mingle right next to him and still hear each other.

The cost of the event was not expensive for the great joy he brought to the occasion.  People don't always think accordion music. But it was delightful and spirit filled/giddy event to all!

 My 80 year old Dad and 52 year old brother and 81 year old mom and 75+ old in laws were dancing on the porch and in the yard....my dad twirled me around....... I have it on video....it was hysterical and one of those events that is now memorialized in everyone's brains because of the added touch of this timeless music. Brought everyone together. Thank you so much!

The Internationals
The Aurora (Illinois) Historical Society was hosting an evening of celebration for more than 100 years of Italian American settlement and shaping of our cultural history, and we had just about given up finding an *Italian band*.  Then The Internationals came to our attention and through our door, and they were absolutely perfect.  Not only were the combination of accordion and mandolin ideal for an Italian sound, but they had an incredible playlist of suitable music and kept going for 3 delightful hours.  They even, with barely a week's notice, added an instrumental version of a selection from the opera "Tosca", which probably doesn't get requested that often, but which they knocked out of the park.   Our guests loved the musical atmosphere and were singing and dancing in no time.  We could not have been more pleased, and definitely will seek out The Internationals for other parties in the future.  Thank you, gentlemen, what a great pleasure it was to host you in Aurora!

They were a big part of the ceremony with excellent skills and impressive taste. Thank you and thanks to Igor and Mikhail.

SINCERELY  Yelena.

Gennady Sergienko and Arkady Pevchik have performed at my place as a band and solo on several occasions and were absolutely loved by the public. The dynamic performance of Russian , Ukrainian, Jewish and All-American favorite songs takes turns with jokes and interaction with the ones in attendance and public is kept interested for the whole duration of the concert. It is not a rare picture when restaurant patrons would sing along and dance during performances.

I have enjoyed working with the band ,
Best wishes to you from Crepe Bistro staff, keep up the great work , and will be looking forward to work with you again in the future!

Dear Henry,
 
The music provided by Arkady was beyond our expectations.  He played all my requests and encouraged the guests to sing along.  He made the party an unforgettable evening.  Thank you so much.

Hi Gennady,

We were very pleased with the program for our Fish Boil.  Ladies were dancing, gentlemen were sitting close listening, we sang with him as he played "Happy Birthday" and "Always," he was pleasant and professional and a very accomplished musician.  Thank You!

Thank you for referring him to us.  We are please to give him a very high recommendation.

Sincerely,

This is a recommendation letter for a group of musicians “The Internationals”.

The Internationals has performed at the location of the International Business Club on December 6, 2008 during the Concert “Fall in St. Petersburg”.

Their excellent performance accompanied with a great contact with the audience made the concert a unique and extraordinaire cultural event for the members of the IBC.

I would recommend “The Internationals” for any type of gathering as a great and vivid entertainers.
