If you’re searching for a band that delivers more than just music, Pelagos Entertainment is the act to book. I had the pleasure of having them perform at my 40th birthday party, and their show was a masterclass in musical excellence and cultural celebration. Nikos, the standout performer of the group, is an artist of rare talent. His voice, capable of both powerful crescendos and tender nuances, has a hypnotic quality that can captivate any audience. Additionally, his expertise with the lyra brought an authentic Greek vibe to the festivities that was simply enchanting.

Our wedding was transformed into an unforgettable celebration thanks to Pelagos Entertainment, and a huge part of that success was due to Nick's incredible support from beginning to end. From our first conversation, Nick was not only professional but also genuinely enthusiastic about making our musical dreams come true.

Pelagos Entertainment's performance was nothing short of spectacular. Their talent and ability to engage the crowd turned our special day into a magical experience.

We had Pelagos Entertainment for our wedding and it was by far the best decision we've made! They brought such excitement to the dance floor and enchanted the whole room! Greek and non-Greeks alike took part in cultural dances; it was such a hoot! They really do make music come to life!! The smoke machine was such an added bonus to make us feel as though we were dancing on the clouds for our first dance. They really are top notch - and had the upmost professionalism and respect for us as a couple! They always were available to meet through Zoom, and made sure to accommodate our vision for our special day We would absolutely recommend!!! 10/10

Fantastic musicans! Wonderful people! Book them today. Don't waste another minute looking for anyone else. They play any/all types of Greek music. They are great to work with..They go the extra mile to accommodate your individual requests. We have booked them for multiple events and have seen them play at many others. They are simply the best. They listen to what you do and do not want, and aim to please. They play to the crowd and respect what the host asks for. There's no long intro killing time before getting to the excitement (unless you want that). There's no ego dictating what they will or will not play. There's no nickle & diming to squeeze more out of their contract. They are purely skilled, talented, dedicated, passionate musicians who aim to please. We have worked with many bands over the years in varying capacities (personal events, church events, dance group events, and so on). Pelagos is my band of choice because they deliver exactly what we ask of them, without having to ask twice and without breaking the bank. Moreover, they "get it". They FEEL the music. They listen to what you ask for, they understand what you want, and they know how to execute. I recommend them whole-heartedly and without a single reservation. You will not be disappointed."

"Where to begin with! What an experience I had with this fine group at our private party. From the first phone call I had with Nick, I immediately knew that I was dealing with a professional. His positive attitude, the way he thoroughly explained every detail to me and his confidence he showed over the phone were remarkable. The band was REMARKABLE! They had a very large repertoire and kept our guests dancing all night long. I'm so happy I found them and will be definitely recommending them to everyone and will be hiring them again for any of our future events. I wish you guys continuous success because you truly deserve it!"

"A band makes or breaks an event. Well, your band, the music you played brought so much "kefi" to the Christening. We all enjoyed ourselves so much. The love that you have for music is evident in how you sing and play your instruments. You are all very talented, and I look forward to seeing and hearing you all play again."

"This band is the real deal. I first heard them perform at a festival in Baltimore back in 2019 and they were phenomenal. Their professionalism, their passion, their positive energy and their performance on stage had everyone dancing on their feet all night long. It was a night I will never forget. This is one of the very few Greek bands that have ever impressed me this much and I can’t wait to see them down here again. I highly recommended them!"

"Thank you so much for making our day complete. The whole day we felt like we were back in Santorini. Thank you for creating the most energetic atmosphere and keeping all our guests entertained with both the Greek music!"


"I first heard this band back in 2019 at St.Demetrios in Astoria, NY for the Amorgos Vasilopita. The passion and the kefi they gave during the event was unique and they had people dancing non stop. Hopefully things with COVID come back to normal soon so I get to see this amazing and talented group perform again in the near future. Best of luck to you guys always, which you undoubtedly deserve!"

I chaired the Epiphany Glendi and Epiphany Ball in Tarpon Springs, Florida for 2023. The goal for our events were to bring back "old Tarpon", energetic glendi with lots of dancing and "kefi"; that's what our town was full of during my childhood! Niko and the team he put together were a key factor to making sure we met our goal!!!!! It was an amazing weekend with so much enthusiasm and kefi! I continue to get messages from the community talking about how much fun everything was. I look forward to working with Niko and team in the future! He's easy to work with and reliable!
