Thanks, Rick! We really enjoyed having your band play on our big day - it was a great day had by all. Look forward to seeing you guys live again soon.
Brittany and Tyler - Sapphire Creek Winery, Oct 6th, 2018
"WOW! This band is the best! They play a variety of music and their band leader, Rick, made sure that he got all our music preferences/requests. They kept the party moving and their music got our guests out on the dance floor. Many commented on how much they liked this band! I would definitely recommend The Edge!"

Ryan and Penn’s wedding reception – September 22, 2018
Dear Rick, Angelina, Bob, Mike, Dan and Jeff,
Thank you, Rick and the Cutting Edge, for making our daughter's wedding extra special. Fron the songs you learned for the first dances to keeping the dance floor filled until the final song, we are so pleased that you were part of the celebration. We received countless compliments from our guests on how much a live band adds to a party and how great you all were. I have to say you sounded incredible. The groom initially thought you were playing a recording of their special song (and so did I) until he saw that you were performing it! We don't know when, but we'll likely have one more wedding in our future and most certainly will be looking to book you again.
Best regards, Matt & Terri Sivik - June 6, 2017 - wedding
The most entertaining band I have seen in a long time. Easy to work with and fulfilled every wish we asked. Two weeks later and everyone is still talking about them.

Great fantastic fabulous and very entertaining and very talented! Bryce and Kym Custer - June 22, 2013 @ Vosh

Absolutely great band - I wish you covered weddings down here in South Carolina too! Congratulations on a job well done!" Photography by Andrea Knapp - May 25, 2013 @ Blue Canyon
"Simply put this band rocks. We must have been told 50 times by our friends and family that, "the band was great". They were so flexible with our requests on music, first dance song, even allowing a friend of ours to join them for a song. Rick did great job with the introductions and we look forward to seeing them play again soon. The dance floor was packed for every song, can't imagine our wedding without having such great entertainment." Brian and Erin Pender - October 16, 2010 @ Cleveland Renaissance

Lynn and Bryan Baranowski - September 25, 2010 @ Blue Heron Golf Club, Medina
"Rick & the Cutting Edge did a fantastic job at our wedding. The dance floor was full the entire night and everyone knew the words to every song they played!

Everyone loved the diverse songs and high energy provided throughout the night. Having looked at your song list and seen the videos online I had very high expectations. You definitely exceeded anything Katie or I could've ever dreamed of. The emceeing was great and the songs were awesome. You were a huge part of making our day so special. So thank you."

"Hello, Thanks so much for playing at our wedding! We had so many compliments about how wonderful your band was. I do have a suggestion for the future. Chris and I were talking about how it would have been really cool to get a recording after our wedding of all the songs you played as a keepsake to remember because the music was awesome and it would bring back so many memories from the wedding. I don't know if it would even be possible for your band to do that, but I think that a lot of brides and grooms would love it! Again, thank you for everything! Your band was so awesome, it totally made our wedding perfect! Thank you," Amy & Chris Garey - June 27, 2009 @ The Bertram Inn

"Rick and the band were absolutely fabulous to work with. We could not be more proud of choosing them to play at the Courthouse for our wedding May 16, 2009. They kept the dance floor full and played an extremely difficult venue flawlessly. We heard only positive comments from a very diverse crowd. Rick even thought of many things that we forgot about along the way that helped us out. One of our friends even said, "I'm not a dancer, but this is the best wedding band I've ever heard." Rick and the band had him out on the dance floor all night. Thanks so much for all of your work. Hopefully we'll get to dance to your music again soon!" John and Katie - May 16, 2009 @ The Old Cleveland Courthouse

"We realize that this is a bit late, but we needed to write to you about the wonderful experience at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. Amy and Bill Bambic were married at Pine Ridge on June 29. Rick and the Cutting Edge helped to make their wedding a fabulous event! If you recall, this was quite a traditional Slovenian wedding. Your song selection, including the three sets of polkas, certainly got everyone on the dance floor! Your decision to have a "strolling accordion" was very well received by all. We most enjoyed the fact that you tailor-made the song selections (whether it was a polka or "Paradise by the Dashboard Light"), according to your observation of the crowd. Most of all, we (the parents of the bride) were able to enjoy the wedding due to your expertise. Relatives and friends are still raving about Amy and Bill's wedding. Our compliments and thanks to you and the band for a wonderful wedding. We have three more children, so you may be hearing from us again!" Thanks again, Jim and Mary Anne Burya
