The Knot – 2015
“Arvell and Company absolutely ROCKED the house at our launch party for The Knot in St. Louis this year! Everyone was dancing and having a blast the entire time they were playing! They are absolutely awesome performers and really know how to get everyone up and moving! I have continued to receive compliments for weeks after our event from the wedding industry pros at the party about how much they loved Arvell and Company and how much fun they had! I would definitely recommend them for any couple’s event! No doubt they will be sure to have your guests raving about how awesome they are and how much fun they made the event long after!”

Arvell & Company were amazing! As the bride, you want everything to run perfectly and smoothly, and you want music that will get everyone on the dance floor, whether fast or slow. Arvell was PERFECT in all aspects! He was incredibly professional, and made sure he had prompts from our wedding planner to read every name in the right order throughout the night. And the singing, ohhh the singing!!! For anyone looking to create a unique and special vibe, book Arvell! He sang such a cool mix of classics and modern songs that really got everyone dancing. He has a great eye for what the crowd is into. The woman singer in his group rocks too, and the horn instruments had such a cool sound. He even let my brother play with the band for one of the songs! For the father daughter dance he sang “Shama Lama” from Animal House and it was so neat! He told us he had not played that song before, but that he was happy to learn it for our dance! Having Arvell made my wedding feel truly special. Many many people came up to me after the wedding and even weeks later to tell me that was the best wedding band they have heard! There is something so classic and beautiful about having talented live singers! You will not regret choosing Arvell!

The dance floor was never empty at the wedding reception, thanks to Arvell! He switched seamlessly from oldies like September to new hits like Happy and kept the dance going. Best band at a wedding I’ve ever heard – it’s pretty awesome that it was at my own!

I can’t say enough how great this band is! They played last Saturday for my daughter’s wedding reception and they helped to make the celebration a huge success. I appreciated their musical talent, their professionalism and their charm. They kept the dance floor filled the entire night! They have a great sound and a great variety of music to appeal to every age range. I am so pleased to share our great experience with Arvell and Company. Do yourself a favor and go hear them play. or do yourself a bigger favor and just book them now. They are the best!

Arvell & Co. played at our wedding reception and they were amazing. Having a great band that kept people dancing all night was very important to us and they did not disappoint! From the time the dance music started the dance floor was never empty. We’re still getting compliments on how great our band was and how it was the best wedding band people had ever heard! We’d seen Arvell & Co. perform before but even we were shocked at the range of songs they played: oldies to pop to country, pretty much everything! I didn’t even bother giving them a no-play list aside from a couple artists we dislike (mainly so they knew not to play while on breaks) because I knew Arvell & Co. would play great stuff and engage with and feed off the crowd. As the bride & groom, we danced all night, which is exactly what we wanted. Everyone had so much fun at our reception thanks to them!

They performed at my daughters wedding on 5/31 at the Coronado Ballroom. THEY ROCKED! Everyone had a blast! I especially loved Arvell’s duet with my son, “Livin’ on a Prayer”. What an incredible night! I HIGHLY recommend them! The dance floor was filled the entire night!

Arvell was a blast! He learned the song we wanted for our first dance. He played music for all generations and got everyone on the dance floor. He was much fun. We got tons of compliments on the band.

We hired Arvell (7 piece with female vocals) to play at our wedding last month and they were wonderful! We and our guests loved the band and at the end of the night everyone wanted one more song! They kept everyone dancing the whole time. We still keep getting compliments on how good they were. Arvell was very professional and even learned a new song for our first dance; it could not have been more perfect. They can play any type of music and is not limited to one or a couple genres of music. I highly recommend hiring Arvell for your next event.
