Perfect night and perfect music

We initially booked Around Town Entertainment because Adam and Gaby were so professional and responsive and easy to work with. They helped walk us through the options for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and even got on the phone with me a week before the wedding to finalize how the timeline would work. We booked a pianist for the ceremony, who did an amazing job and was able to learn a song that my sister sang during the ceremony.

We had a jazz trio for cocktail hour which was great. It was a cherry on top that the night of our wedding, Authority Band blew everyone away! We booked a 9 piece band with 3 extra brass (sax, trumpet, trombone). The band catered to every request we gave them beforehand, as well as totally understood the musical vibe we were going for just from us highlighting songs we liked in their repertoire. We loved that they had such a broad range of songs, and it was incredible to have a live band that could play David Bowie, Madonna, Jackson 5, Blink182, Harry Styles, Robyn, Earth Wind & Fire in the same night. Every guest of all age ranges (19 to 60+) were out on the dance floor the whole night. Also super impressive that they do not take any breaks all night - the dance floor was always full which was super important to us. We loved every minute of our wedding and having the perfect band made it even better!

Around Town was so amazing for our wedding! Well worth the investment

I'd give so many more stars. We couldn't be happier to recommend Around Town Entertainment -- they absolutely helped make our wedding so incredible. From booking to wedding day; entire process working with Adam was so easy and seamless - he gave us great guidance on our ceremony, cocktail and reception selections and helped us feel so confident in their ability to work with our venue and walk us through the day's timeline. We ended up using violin and piano for our ceremony, a jazz trio for cocktail and full band with an added horn section and it was AMAZING - so worth it! Our guests are still raving about the band and people came up to us during the wedding and called us after to ask how we found them-- they were so impressive! I was most nervous about music because we have such a varied musical taste and they delivered above and beyond! Everything from house music to R&B and classic hits. Our first dance was a Lauryn Hill R&B inspired cover and I am still stunned at the amazing performance they put on. They learned every song we requested, read the crowd and kept the party going all night long. Truly just such amazingly talented musicians and wonderful to work with.

BEST DAY EVER - thank you for your part in it!

Our wedding was the absolute best day of our lives and Around Town most definitely played a part in that!

From the very start, we knew we were working with a well-oiled machine. Adam was extremely communicative often replying to our emails within a matter of minutes.

We appreciated the fact that he made us feel extremely confident in our musician selection and always steered us towards what was best for our wedding, never towards the more expensive option. He assured us that a 7-person band would rock out just as much as a 12-person band and boy was he right!

Our guests raved about the band the entire night and following days. The team on-site was extremely kind, easy to work with, and SO MUCH FUN. The vocalists were AMAZING and the musicians were SO talented. Our guests were so impressed by the fact that the music was non-stop.

Around Town did such an amazing job curating a set lists based on our selections and got the party going in no time. Our dance floor was packed the entire night which is just what we wanted.

Our ceremony and cocktail hour music was absolutely perfect and we were so glad to be able to knock out all our musical needs with the same company.

Do not hesitate to book Around Town - they are the real deal. So professional, so fun, and SO talented!! Thank you Adam and team - you helped make this the best day of our lives.
