David and the rest of Southern City Lights did the BEST job of making my wedding reception so much fun! All of my guests were thoroughly entertained all night, and the dance floor was always the place to be! David took all of my requests (even the strange ones) in stride, and the music and entertainment at my wedding was everything I ever dreamed it would be! My family is one to never leave the dance floor at a wedding, and so the band at my wedding was very important to me. Thanks to Southern City Lights, my guests, my family, my husband, and myself all had the most fun night! I would highly recommend Southern City Lights to anyone looking for fun, quality entertainment for any event!

Wow! I cannot speak highly enough of David and his team at Southern City Lights. I reached out to them to play at our wedding reception for June 2021. He was very good with communication and was always available to answer any questions my husband and I had. Even with us having to change dates because of the pandemic, David was very flexible and understanding. His team did an amazing job of setting up their stage area at the reception. We received so many compliments from our guests of how great our band was! Southern City Lights is an awesome band! They made sure the music matched the mood and kept everyone entertained the whole night! Book them for your next wedding or event…. I promise you won’t regret it! – Jena & Cameron Hooper

When my now-husband first told me he wanted a live band instead of a DJ, I did not think it would be within our budget. It turns out Southern City Lights offered many different options for all price points and instrument preferences. We were able to pick and choose exactly what we wanted for our big day. David and his team were the epitome of professionalism, personalized touch, and SO much fun! David talked us through every step of the process, so communication and expectations were crystal clear. We opted for instrumentals during the ceremony and a five-piece band for the reception. Our friends and family are still talking about how much fun our wedding was - and we all know the music makes the party. SCL had everyone on the dance floor from Grandma Bebop cutting a rug to our toddler niece showing off her moves to all the uncles singing together. The only sad part was when it was over! The saying goes "where words fail, music speaks". Music has played a huge part in our love story, and there is no one we would recommend more than David and Southern City Lights. Reach out and get in touch. I promise you'll be glad you did!

If I could give 10 stars I would! I had a huge Christmas party planned for months and my music plans canceled on me last minute. Not only did David step in to save the day, but gave us the experience of a lifetime! He made a good party great!! I can’t wait to hire him again! He was amazingly professional and responsive. Went above and beyond what I expected! Hiring him guarantees a successful event!
