J D DJed our wedding the other night and we had a BLAST!!! He kept the music going and everyone of all ages was on the dance floor having fun. Despite the rain & power outages at our outdoor tented wedding- he went above and beyond to make our reception so special and memorable. We can’t recommend him enough!

Oh my! The best band ever! We had them at our first daughters wedding and they were so GREAT that we hired them a year later for our second daughter's wedding. I almost wish I had a third daughter lol. Actually, we have been thinking of a way to celebrate something else so we can have them again. They are so good at reading the crowd and playing music the crown wants to hear. WONDERFUL and easy to get along with!

Top Tier Band played at our wedding reception in Chattanooga, and they were amazing! JD is super responsive to emails, so there were never any communication issues. They learned a couple of sentimental songs for us, and they even worked with some of our family members behind the scenes to surprise us with my husband's uncle as an Elvis impersonator. They were more reasonably priced than other bands we looked into, had no problem with traveling from Nashville to Chattanooga, and their performance was absolutely phenomenal! Our dance floor was packed all night long, and our guests even demanded an encore at the end of the night (the band was kind enough to perform a few more songs). We were worried about hiring a band that we had never seen/heard in person to play at our wedding, because the music is so key to a fun wedding reception, but we needn't have worried a bit. They sounded better on songs than the original recordings! I can't recommend them enough!

We had Top Tier Band play at our wedding in Nashville recently. They were AMAZING! Our friends and family kept coming up to us all night long remarking how great the band was. We spent the whole night dancing and singing! At one point I looked around and almost every single guest was on the dance floor, it was awesome! Our friends and family were even dancing to the iPod songs when the band took a break because of the great atmosphere they created. JD made everything SUPER easy and they were wonderfully flexible the night of. No one wanted the night to end. Cannot speak highly enough of Top Tier and JD and would recommend booking Top Tier to anyone!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review! We really appreciate you booking the band and your kind words! It's always our goal to keep the dance floor packed and sound as good as possible, so I'm super glad we accomplished that! :)
