Though we live in NY my husband and I got married in VT, about 4 hours from our home. We decided to hire Nick because he had the best and most enthusiastic presentation, was willing to work with us on pricing and willing to drive the distance, and because we know his family well. Not only did he make the long trip, but he brought Brianna, his incredibly talented daughter who sang live at our wedding. Nick sang at our wedding as well and he was fantastic! I can't say enough how absolutely amazing our wedding was because of him! I don't think my husband and I sat still for more than a minute! We danced ALL NIGHT!!! It was the most fun we've ever had! The music was perfect, we had given him a list with some songs and gave him liberty to fill in the blanks. I'm only sorry I missed hearing him singing while we were taking pictures but everyone raved about it. Brianna did an absolutely incredible job as well. I have been getting endless comments and compliments from every single guest about what a fantastic DJ we had and how amazing Brianna was. I'm so glad we were able to share her talent with our guests, she always brings me to tears with those pipes! He even custom recorded certain songs to be sung along to live, and it made all the difference in the world. I especially want to mention how much Nick had my back during the entire afternoon and night- and that really meant so much to me. As a bride the last thing I wanted was to have to deal with timing issues as they kept coming up, and having his support and guidance really kept everything in perfect time- every last detail from the songs played at certain times, the announcements, to providing the music for not just Brianna but my sisters live singing. Not only did Nick provide the music for our ceremony and reception, but he also video recorded every detail of the afternoon and evening, including the ceremony and reception. He was able to do all of this with just himself and his daughter! He usually has assistants with him but the distance and having an event the next afternoon made it impossible to have them there- though he honestly didn't need them at our wedding- he pulled every single moment and song off perfectly! His enthusiasm, which is what convinced us to book him in the first place, was there 200% throughout the entire night. He had the perfect amount of enthusiasm without being too crazy over-the-top cheesy, which was exactly what we wanted. He absolutely delivered- everything we expected and wanted times ten. I can't sing his praise enough- he made our day run smoothly and was constant support for us, which was above and beyond what we expected. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone for any event, especially weddings. He was simply phenomenal and made our day the best and most fun day EVER! I have to add as well- we've been to a handful of weddings this year (other than our own) and no other DJ even came close to giving the energy Nick had, and not one of them got the party going or kept it going like Nick did at our wedding- not to mention none of them came close to Nick's pricing- so our friends paid a lot more for a lot less. We still, 4 months later, get compliments and comments about how we had the best DJ, the best music, and the most fun wedding!

I wanted to write a quick review of the Alan Louis Band. I was in the market for my wedding and saw these guys play. They were extremely good, Alan was very professional. I didn't book with Alan, because we went with a family friend. It was a very tough decision, but I would book them in the future!

Spencer and Sequoia brought the soundtrack to our wedding. Seeing and hearing them play live for our reception was a treat for our guests and one the highlights of the night. Their music is beautiful, modern, unique and leaves everyone wanting to hear more. We didn’t have to worry about any of their setup, they came with everything they needed and added zero stress or complications to our wedding planning. They are professional to work with and trustworthy. We loved to have one of their original songs as our first dance! They made our special day even more unforgettable. All we have to say is a big thank you for putting life into the music at our wedding. Levi & Leslie Ballard

I looooove Soulful Sounds! They are my favorite band. They played at my wedding in August 2015. I'm so glad I gave them a chance. Besides picking my dress they were the best decision for my wedding. People still talk about how great the band was. My only regret was that I didn't have them play the whole night. The guys are so prefessional and they dress for the job. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. I can't wait for my next event to have Soulful Sounds play. Keep up the good work guys. I feel like they get better every time I hear them. Love Vicky

My wedding was amazing thanks to Mich and the Skyline Drive Orchestra. When I first called Mitch, he made me feel like I was part of his family and had me so excited about my wedding. My husband asked only one thing from him, have everyone on the dance floor dancing all night and he made that wish come true!! When the wedding was over, all of our guests just raved about how amazing the band was and told us they wish they could continue to dance for hours after the wedding was over. We have been married for 6 months and I have guests still talking about the band. Thank you Mitch and the rest of the band for making my dream come true!!

BD Lenz was the absolute perfect wedding band for us. They were easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and just an unbelievable group of musicians. BD was easily reachable via phone/email leading up to the day, and was completely professional throughout. They really knew how to keep people up dancing all night and even allowed me to come up and play a song with my old band. BD stayed up and played some lead guitar, just such an awesome experience. Music is so important to my wife and I, and there's no better band we could think of to play on our day. Please, please, please hire this band. You won't be sorry!!!

I went to Klein's last night in Belmar with my friend Rachel to see Jeremy and Jimmy Acoustic Duo. These guys are great! Their rendition of songs are amazing and their sound is incredible. Jeremy & Jimmy truly enjoy what they do and it's reflected in their performance. So, if you're ever looking for live entertainment whether small, big, corporate...these two will surely bring it! They also founded "Wrapped Around Your Finger"; a full on 9 piece event/wedding band. Check 'em out! Thanks guys for a great night!👍

The Verdict played at our welcome dinner in VT the night before our wedding for around 150 guests. They were amazing, and exceeded our already sky-high expectations. We and our guests had an awesome time, and we have The Verdict to thank for it! They are extremely talented musicians, and you can tell they love to play together; there is a soul to their music that is not typical of most bands. They really read the mood of the crowd and make sure everyone is having a good time – they played softer background music during cocktail hour and dinner, and then switched to dancing music after dinner that got everyone out on the dance floor. They are true entertainers – getting everyone at the event out of their seats dancing, laughing and celebrating. John, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely flexible and responsive. He answered all our questions beforehand and worked with us to make sure the evening was exactly what we wanted. They sound amazing – their song list is extensive and varied, and they can play anything from roots reggae to pop with a great reggae vibe. We highly recommend the Verdict for any party or event – they were a pleasure to work with and will make sure everyone has an AWESOME time. -Emma & Jeff

The Jersey Surecats drove about 70 miles in a snow storm for my daughter's wedding. They provided light cocktail music. Then played a wide variety of toe tapping dance cover songs. They were the life of the party. In fact, several guests inquired about them so that they can hire them. They even learned several songs for the wedding. They were cooperative and went the extra mile for us.

I first heard Bria’s band at local coffee shop one weekend. I enjoyed them so much that I invited them to perform at my wedding reception! They were on point! They had everyone dancing...even my grandma. They were so easy to work with and very professional. They customized their set to fit what we requested. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I would definitely recommend them to anyone !!!

Having a live music aspect to our wedding was something my husband and I prioritized during our wedding planning process. Our decision to use Set3 Jazz as the musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour was perfect! Mitchell and his band were amazing performers and great to work with throughout the entire process. Mitchell worked with us to help us customize the music for the ceremony while also providing great suggestions for the evening. The guests loved this aspect of the wedding and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Mitchell was very professional; the band arrived in advance for set-up, dressed perfectly and were so professional and quick to respond throughout the entire process. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

They truly made my wedding reception a memorable delight. The live band and dj combination was amazing! My 80 year Aunt was up dancing with my 2 year old nephew. You can't really put a price on the countless memories created that night. This was only a small ticket price. Hubby and I were thoroughly impressed. Thanks! We really appreciate you Radio Play Sound!
