Contemporary’s wedding bands combine high-energy performances and diverse set lists to make sure everyone, from your college roommates to your grandma, stays glued to the dance floor.
We booked our 7-piece wedding band through Contemporary Productions for our wedding reception and could not have had a better experience doing so! The staff was incredibly helpful! At first, we weren't sure exactly what sound, style, or group we wanted to go with. We had people attending from both coasts as well as local folks of ages 20-80, so we really wanted to make sure we had a band that would appeal to all ages and backgrounds. The Contemporary Productions staff listened to all that we were hoping for and gave us several recommendations. We then checked out some of the groups in person and then made our decision. As we got closer to the big day, CP helped us square away all of the details for our band. We had a lot of moving pieces with a unique reception timeline and a lot of different activities. The band doubled as our emcee and they kept everything moving right along so effortlessly. Then, once it was time for open dancing, the dance floor was packed with all ages dancing the night away. We got so many compliments from our guests on how great the band was (we had Arvell & Co). Thank you Contemporary Productions for helping us hire the perfect band for our big day. From initial contact to the last dance on our big day, we were most pleased with the booking/planning process and big day. Thank you!
Greatly exceeded my high expectations! My Friend Mike was a FABULOUS success at my son's wedding!! I trust my son and daughter in law's judgment immensely so I knew when they picked this band that they had to be awesome but WOW, it was even better than I hoped!! EVERYONE was on the dance floor - including the groom's 86 yr old grandfather!! I tipped them each a $50 bill including the sound man but please pass on to the band my sincere and enthusiastic praise. And the trombone player was sooo fantastic that I wish I would have added the extra horns that are an option!! The wedding weekend went off without a hitch and a fabulous time was had by all at the reception and My Friend Mike is a big reason why!! GET THIS BAND - you WON'T be disappointed
Griffin & The Gargoyles were AMAZING to say the least! They were a delight to work with from start to finish. The band had the dance floor filled the entire night. People, all ages, were dancing and having a ball all night long. They truly know how to work the crowd and keep people engaged. Not to mention, they are incredibly talented. We ended up adding the female vocalist last minute and we're thrilled we did because she was amazing. We would highly recommend Griffin and The Gargoyles to any and everyone. We got numerous compliments on the band, and people telling us it was the best wedding band they've ever heard!
FatPocket is literally a perfect wedding band. They played everything from Motown to classic rock to rap (current kind and early nineties kind, so double bonus) to pop hits to dance party favorites. And they were SO engaged with the crowd - the dance floor was full from the second they started playing to four hours later when I had to forcibly kick people off of it. Exceptional choice and honestly can't believe how good the price point was compared to other bands in St. Louis, especially given FatPocket's range of talent and professionalism.
OH MY GOD. Charles Glenn and his band are INCREDIBLE!! They were rockstars and we had an amazing time with them. What a ridiculously talented group. All the guests raved about them and they really helped make our wedding memorable and outstanding. We cannot thank you enough, Charles, and the whole Contemporary Productions team for your stellar work. BOOK CHARLES TODAY!!
