    We had heard him perform at another wedding we went to and we both noted to ourself just how much John could bring the crowd to life and how engaging he was. It was simply the best wedding experience we have ever had and we wanted to have that same.

    We were blown away. Everyone of our guests said just how great the band was and how he really made the party happen and come to life. We can’t thank you enough for making our special day, that much more special."

    They played amazing music at a sound level perfect for guests to still be able to converse during dinner and then raised it up to get everyone dancing for a great party.

    I can report that most all my guests said this was the best party they had ever attended and the band was a big part."

    One problem, the beer truck complained that beer sales were down sharply while you were playing, due to the high number of people dancing :)

    I hope that someday we get the opportunity to work together again, you have a great team..."

From your range, depth, and selection everyone had a great time....Several couples have already approached us about contacting your band in the future. Just like the website shows and our guests did too, you guys get people out there on the dance floor having fun and letting loose, wanting to get a picture and sing with you.
