As far as bands go.. we cannot day enough amazing things about this one!! Hiring Fat Pocket to perform for our wedding was one of the first checks on our planning list and easily one of the best parts of our day. Planning a wedding during a pandemic was a task on its own, but working with this group made the day that much sweeter when it finally came around. Guests matched our praise for these guys with the rave reviews even still a month out from our wedding! The quality of the performance Fat Pocket gave to our evening was filled with more energy than we could have even imagined! The group was amazing to work with as far as details and directions go, very transparent and always quick to respond to any and every email sent their way. Hiring this band is one of the easiest decisions to make if you are looking for a high energy, incredible sound and vocalists, and interactive group of beyond talented individuals to keep your dance floor flooded and guests screaming for encores well into your night!
We were one of the lucky COVID couples that were actually able to get married. From rearranging guest lists, to new venues, to completely replanning everything less than one month out, the folks with FatPocket were beyond comparison. They did a great job keeping in contact with us and being VERY responsive to our crazy plans. Customer service is BIG for me and FatPocket blew away all of my expectations. As an added bonus, every single person who congratulated us that attended the wedding mentioned how amazing the band was. They played for hours and my new bride and I never left the floor. Thank you FatPocket for making our wedding perfect even during the middle of a pandemic.
I saw Fat Pocket years ago at Westport, playing a gig. From that moment on - I knew I wanted them to play my wedding if I ever got married. Found the guy eventually but I knew I already had the band! ;) I even picked my wedding date around their availability. Even with COVID - and postponing a month - they were still able to make it work. This was their first show back in months and they knocked it out of the park. Everyone raved about them and I am thrilled it all worked out. Thanks!
When you hire a band for your daughter's wedding you wonder what the effect your decision will have on the overall event? WOW There were numerous times we looked around the room to realize 90% of our guests were on the dance floor, I think that is my answer. Interactive, lively, talented, professional, moving & affordable........this band may be way to fun for the most of you! LOL We worked with Peter Schankman to set things up and knowing his Dad, I must say...look out "Dad" this band is phenomenal! They rocked the house from the time they started until we ended reluctantly. By far the best wedding band my 58 years have ever seen and we had many guests say the same! Book them now because we had many guests ask how they could book them! Fat Pocket, you were one of the key pieces that made the night...keep up the great work. The members of the band played numerous instruments, but the horn section is unbelievable. Singers are super! What more can I say, easily the best band of their kind in The Lou! Band appeals to young and old. Don't wear new shoes or your feet are in big trouble! Wish we could turn back the clock and do it all again!
What can I say that hasn't already been said? This band was amazing at our daughter's wedding last weekend. Every age group (pre-teens through senior citizens) was out on the dance floor the entire time--no easy feat to accomplish. The horn section alone is worth the price--and the fact that they came off the stage into the audience was very cool and fun. Prior to booking them, we heard them play at one of the local bars--and they were great--but they were even BETTER at the wedding. I was constantly being asked--"who's the band?--they are amazing". I am actually thrilled that some of the bands we had originally considered were already booked for the date of our daughter's wedding as that led us to Fat Pocket. Easy to work with and reasonably priced--you won't regret your decision if you pick this vendor. BEST DECISION EVER!
Having FatPocket at our wedding reception is by far the best decision we made and they were worth every penny! They were interactive, so friendly and easy to work with and the mix of songs they played kept the dance floor packed all night. I cant say enough good things about them! If you are looking for a St Louis area band for your wedding reception, look no further and just book FatPocket today!
We couldn't imagine a better band for our daughter's wedding! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night -- including the sophisticated East Coast guests who want to fly Fat Pocket to NYC for their events. Book them now before they become too famous. So easy to work with.
Wow. Wow. WOW!!!! FatPocket was the icing on the cake of our wedding day. When I say we had a party... we had a PARTY!! We had a wide range of ages at our reception and EVERYONE was on the dance floor from the beginning to the end of the night. They worked the crowd and the horns even came into the audience to play Proud Mary. Was the highlight of the night! Our guests are gushing about the band and saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to. They were the best choice we made for our day and soooo easy to work with. Peter was extremely responsive and so easy to work with. They were so attentive to myself and my husband during our reception and made sure we were taken care of. Many of my guests asked for their contact info to play at future events. I couldn't imagine my day without them. Thank you Peter and all the guys/gal in FatPocket for the best night of our lives!
FatPocket is seriously the best wedding band in St. Louis. We are so happy we chose them for our big day. We wanted our reception to be lively and our guests energetic, which is exactly what happened. FatPocket kept not only the bride and groom on the dance floor all night but the entire guest list out there too. They turned the Art Museum into the best party we could have asked for! They play a wide variety of songs that keep all generations entertained. We even had a few engaged couples tell us FatPocket made them decide to switch from a wedding DJ to band. Best decision we made!
Just wanted to thank you and the entire band again for everything. I thought you were fantastic at the Layton wedding but Saturday seemed extra special too. It is such a pleasure to work with you. I really appreciate your customer service pre-event and making sure everything goes off smoothly and according to plan. Please extend my gratitude to all of the band members. I know Lauren and Andy were thrilled and I personally heard lots of compliments about everything. It was wonderful from start to finish.
This band was amazing!! As soon as they started playing, everyone was on the dance floor and no one stopped dancing the entire time. They switched it up through out the night and came into the crowd to dance, sing and play - which was super awesome - and every song was perfect and kept the energy up all night!! We got so so so many compliments on our band and they seriously made our night extra special and beyond fun! I would hire them again in a heart beat!
We booked FatPocket for our daughter's wedding last month. Wow!! This band is professional, talented and Oh, so fun! The guests danced from the first song to the last, and everyone had so much fun. People continue to talk about the band! They definitely rocked the party! We plan to see them again.
Wow what an unbelievable night!!! We had the most amazing time at our wedding on 5/13/17, and we truly believe that the band sets the tone (hehe pun was definitely intended) for the night. You guys did a phenomenal job and the energy level was consistently high! Can't tell you how many compliments we got about the band! The dance floor was PACKED the entire night!! 5 stars FOR SURE!
Everyone was on the dance floor with Fat Pocket for our wedding. A week later and my feet are still sore from dancing! Total entertainers - they kept the energy high and the party going. Music was a priority for us in planning and booking Fat Pocket was one of the best decisions we made. They knocked it out of the park.
We had FatPocket for our wedding band in July. They were amazing!! I can't tell you how many people are still coming up to us saying it was the best band they have ever seen at a wedding. I couldn't leave the dance floor. It was one amazing song after another. Lot's of energy, wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much for making our wedding unforgettable!
