I CANNOT rave enough about The Highballs!!! Pre-wedding - As a former event planner, I was a pretty hands-on bride. Working out the details with the band could easily have been a very stressful ordeal since the band sets the tone for and steers the reception. With The Highballs, though, it ended up being completely enjoyable and one of my favorite parts of the planning! They were were so responsive and easy to get in touch with. Their Website is fantastic and full of key information. Meredith (their female lead vocalist and event coordinator) sent the reception planning form with plenty of time to spare. She had such a good vision of how the reception would progress, what music would fit where and what timing of all the reception elements (cake cutting, parent dances, etc.) would work the best (and was spot-on with all of that). She followed up at just the right times to reconfirm everything. Basically, Meredith was thorough and thoughtful about every aspect of the planning, and it was a huge weight off my shoulders because I knew that the reception would be in good hands. Reception - The Highballs' performance at our reception was perfect!!! Guests young and old keep telling me, my husband, and our parents how much they loved the band. They played "standards" during dinner, which sounded fantastic and gave people time to eat before they started dancing. After dinner, though, they launched into 80s and oldies (tailored to play our favorites), and EVERYONE rushed to the dance floor! They will learn one special request song for your reception (we did "Still the One" by Orleans for an anniversary dance), and it sounded like they had been playing it forever. They also give you the opportunity to list recorded songs to be played during band breaks, and I think I heard all of those. In sum, my wedding turned out perfectly, and I had some wonderful vendors, but I have to say that hiring The Highballs was the second-best wedding decision I made ... first-best being, of course, saying yes to the groom! :)
