Wedding @ Valley Green Inn 9/2/18
Although this review is super late, we wanted to make a point to give BD and his band a great review because we could not have been happier in our choice for a wedding band.Sent on 06/30/2019
1) After dealing with other bands and entertainment companies which felt like talking to car salesmen, BD Lenz was a breath of fresh air. He was direct and honest about what he had to offer. He let us take the time we needed to decide, rather than being pushy like a lot of other vendors. He was always professional, direct, and timely in communication.
2) The quality of this band was amazing! They are so great, and we received many compliments on the band from wedding guests. People were dancing all night. Their list of songs is impressive, and includes both popular songs and also rock/funk songs which we loved. He also learned 2 songs for us at our request.
3) The value of this band is incredible. As you may know already from your wedding searches, going for a band rather than a DJ will cost you. That being said, the price we paid for BD Lenz was a bargain compared with many other bands who we were less impressed with. We felt like we were very lucky to have happened upon and booked BD for our wedding.

These guys and girl are so amazing I flew them to Georgia for my wedding. Guests had a great time, but by far the facorite part was the band. I have heard compliment after compliment (really raving) about how they made the wedding so much fun. I love them!!Sent on 03/20/2015

BD Lenz was extraordinarily professional and helpful in the planning stages, always promptly responding to our varied inquiries, and accommodating us throughout the process. He made the process a lot smoother, particularly as we got close to the date. Even more impressive, though, was his performance. BD Lenz learned 2 songs for the acoustic guitar for our ceremony and played them perfectly, and his fantastic band picked up two additional songs by request and added some flair and their own jazz/Motown spin to them. This was in addition to playing over two hours of excellent music on a hot summer day. Just a remarkable job by them; I offer my strongest recommendation.Sent on 08/27/2011
