Reviews

When we first sat down and discussed the feel of our wedding day, we both agreed that the band one of the most important decisions. We wanted all of our guests dancing and having a blast, but we also wanted a seasoned group that could monitor the flow of the evening, and also make sure everything progressed properly. Hiring the Downtown Band was hands down the best decision we could have made. They were professional and prompt when we first reached out to them, and on the day of, we could not have asked for anything more! The were wonderful throughout the entire evening, and our guests were ready to party! We've had more compliments and kudos about the band, and guests have literally told us this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Hire this band now - you will not regret it!!!

Leslie B. – 9.8.18 wedding

All I can say is they are worth every. single. penny. Energy was up and going when it needed to be, they read the room, and took their ONE break when the crowd needed one too. They made our cocktail hour and reception one that will not be forgotten. I cannot speak highly enough of this band, we are already trying to find another event to book them!! Beyond thankful they were available -- memories of a lifetime were created with this crew!!

Robin P. – 12.14.18

My husband found the downtown band for our wedding. I can’t say enough about how wonderful they were from start to finish. Everyone of our guests has bragged and complimented the band. We had the best time, and so did all of our guests. It’s been a few months, and we keep receiving comments about “that band.” Truly, it was an endlessly memorable party for our guests. After being together almost 12 years already, our wedding was formulated more as a huge party for all of our friends and family—no down moments, several bars—and the downtown band delivered exactly what was asked; they kept the momentum up all night until they left for the night. We can’t say thank you enough for making the environment what it was. From the band members to the dancers to the string quartet, everyone was so vital, vibrant, and glamorous. Justin Caldwell and the entire band are extremely talented, and there is simply nothing like having live music that reverberates through a crowd. Would make the same decision 10 times over.
