First, I wanted to thank you for arranging for SEVERE Pleasure to play at my Dad’s Celebration.  As you know his wish was to skip a funeral and have a party with a great rock band - SEVERE Pleasure fit the bill. You were a pleasure to work with and made setting up the event easy.


The whole band was so kind and were set up and ready to go before the guests arrived.  Everyone at the party commented about the great music and the energy of the band, the guests were on the floor dancing the whole time! We loved how you included my Dad’s favorites in the playlist from the Rolling Stones to Tom Petty - you rocked the house.  


Please feel free to give any people who are looking at using SEVERE Pleasure my number for an in person recommendation, your band would be a great addition to any party.


Thank you again for playing at my Dad’s celebration.





I am the General Manager of the Rinconada Hills Homeowner Association in Los Gatos (RH), which is formed from the 434 living units in the development. We have an active community which, among many other things, includes a Social Committee which organizes events for our members.


On a couple of occasions recently the Committee organized TGIF events and hired Dave de Carion’s band, SEVERE Pleasure, to provide music. (Dave is a homeowner at RH.) We were quite pleased with the music presented, and the first event produced one of the largest turnouts in quite some time.


Since we have a broad age demographic some of us were surprised to find their music, classic rock & roll, appealed across the age spectrum; it was great! They are a professional band and appeal well-rehearsed. The events have come off without any difficulty and I’m certain the Committee would have no difficulty hiring SEVERE Pleasure again.

Thank You! M.Y.

To whom it may concern:


Recently I chaired the Saratoga Rotary Art Show, which included a pre-show party for our members. On the recommendation of a friend and fellow Rotarian, I hired SEVERE Pleasure to do the entertainment. It was a smashing success. I quite enjoyed working with them for the following reasons:

  1. Their music, classic rock & roll, was great. They are a professional band and quite well rehearsed

  2. They showed up when they were supposed to, played their music, kept us all dancing, and wrapped up without a hitch


Should the occasion again present itself, I would definitely hire SEVERE Pleasure again.
