Best Decision Ever!

We knew we wanted an awesome band for our wedding! After listening to many, we went with Attraction and let me tell you.... they were worth every penny! Dave was incredible to work with leading up to the event and even indulged us when we wanted to have the band play mostly Motown. The female singers were EPIC and the entire band brought the energy all night long. Our dance floor was packed ALL NIGHT! We had guests raving and even those that didn't dance said they felt they were "at a concert". Attraction is the best investment you'll make in your wedding/event. Don't miss out!

Attraction is incredible!! When my wife and I set a date, Attraction was the first thing we booked based on the wonderful experience my brother had with them performing at his wedding, and once again they made the wedding! Working with Dave put us at ease and he helped us get our plans in order, it was like having a second wedding planner. And, above all else, the music was incredible and the dance floor was packed the whole night. We could not have asked for a better band and any couple that is lucky enough to book Attraction for their wedding will not be disappointed. As with my brother's wedding, people could not stop talking about how incredible the band was. Definitely book Attraction if you can, it will make your day!

Attraction was awesome! They were great to work with and the band was so talented. They listened to our song recommendations and other suggestions. They kept the dance floor going all night. They were a blast and I would highly recommend them.
