Barry C. Mc Murtrey, Yale '88 - Chairman, The Yale Whiffenpoofs 105th Anniversary Reunion
"The legendary Whiffenpoofs of Yale University are America's oldest collegiate male close harmony a cappella singing group.  Our theme song having been immortalized by Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, the brave WWII Black Sheep Squadron, among many other great singers, the Whiffenpoofs themselves have entertained audiences in every state, on all seven continents and the high seas, and to millions on national television.  When any gathering of the alumni of Whiffenpoofs occurs, there are many stories of parties and dinners in castles and mansions, on resort islands, at the Waldorf Astoria, at the White House before the President, or in palaces worldwide before Crowned Heads of State, just to name a few.  In other words, a gathering of Whiffenpoofs is a gathering of gentlemen singers who know a good party  and the very best in cuisine. As the Chair of the 105th Reunion of the Whiffenpoofs, I had the daunting task of putting together a banquet for this selective, not-easily-impressed crowd on a surprisingly modest budget.  Choosing the Ballroom at LoRicco Tower, one of the beautiful, hidden entertainment gems of downtown New Haven, as a venue, I was ledto David Horton and the folks at Legendary Events Catering to provide our feast.  I told David I wanted a big, delicious, top-notch meal at the most moderate price possible.  David came back with a varied gourmet menu and a brand-name, full open bar at an incredible price per head.  I have organized events with New Haven caterers before, and Legendary Events had by far the best prices I had experienced.   But, the proof was in the pudding.  The night of the Banquet the staff was prepared the moment guests walked in the door.  The bartenders were fun, great mixologists, and fast as 200 were served and served again during Cocktail Hour.  The wait staff was friendly, graceful, and gracious.  And, the food!  The food was absolutely magnificent, and this was remarked on by alumni of multi-generations (and their wives), from ages 24 to 45 to 62 to 87.  The vegetable dishes were fresh and crisp, the pasta was wonderfully rich and creamy, the tenderloin was moist and flavorful, and the incredible salmon dish simply melted in your mouth.  I could not have been more pleased, and neither could my fun-loving but choosy group of 200 Whiffenpoofs!  What a night! When the charitable work of the Whiffenpoof Alumni Association, the principle reason of our organization's existence, was explained to David Horton, he even made a contribution to the Yale Whiffenpoof Alumni.  What class!  I highly recommend Legendary Events Caterers for a delicious, magical evening that will thoroughly satisfy."

Bill Buckingham - Director of Marketing for the US Squash Association
"I always use Legendary Event catering when running events in the Greater New Haven area. We operate tournaments and meetings with attendance as small as 10 and as large as 1500. The service they provide is unparalleled. We run events all over the country with varying levels of logistics involved. I am always confident, whether calling at the last minute for a delivered 35 person breakfast and lunch order, or planning a fully catered party for the entire tournament field, I can count on a no hassle process and a successful event. The food provided is always top quality and the comments I get when using LE are unanimously positive. Dealing with F & B purveyors from all regions, I can’t express how important it is to have someone as professional and reliable as LE. The prices are always very competitive and often are even much lower that I pay elsewhere. I would not hesitate to recommend LE to other groups, and, as a matter fact have on many occasions."

"Legendary Events Catering has provided delicious food for parties, holidays and other functions that I've hosted over the years. David and Esteban are always easy to work with- often providing creative menu options that perfectly match the essence of the event. The quality of both the food and the presentation is always first rate. I wholeheartedly recommend Legendary Events to anyone seeking a professional caterer for their next event."

"We have nothing but accolades for Legendary Events Catering! Our daughter’s engagement brunch at our home was magnificent. The Staff arrived well in advance of the party to set up and prepare. The food was plated beautifully and it was delicious, the service was attentive without being intrusive and clean up was impeccable. David Horton was the “answer man” when it came to planning and event details. He’s a pro. We recommend Legendary Events without reservation."

Dave Hass
"Legendary Events catered our "Welcome Back" Memorial Day BBQ for the Woodbridge Club, a pool and tennis facility located in Woodbridge CT. The BBQ was delicioius and beautifully presented and included fresh salad, potato salad and incredible hot dogs and hamburgers. The staff was very pleasant and served right off the grill, so everything was hot and fresh! The event drew a large crowd and rave reviews."

"I have hired David for the last two years to cater all my parties and I have to say that he is amazing. The food is top quality, the servers are professional and friendly and he himself has a great personality. He offers the best suggestions and goes above and beyond for the people he provides his catering services to. I would recommend him to anyone for any kind of event"
