Thank you Ben Mallare Events & Entertainment for an incredible and unforgettable evening. When I look back at my wedding day, my favorite moments were seeing how much fun my family and friends were having on the dance floor. Ben and his band are so talented and their music caters to people of all ages – even older family members were letting loose during the reception. My 5-year old nephew danced nonstop for 2 hours!
We chose Ben’s Standard package (vocals, guitar, drums & bass) for 5 hours, which included our cocktail hour & reception. Ben worked out the logistics of the set-up in our venue and was able to set up in 3 locations – an outdoor courtyard for cocktails hours, inside the reception hallway during dinner, and a separate room for dancing.
We communicated with Ben mostly via email and he was always so friendly, responsive and informative. One of the characteristics about Ben that I truly appreciate is his willingness to help. Two weeks leading up to the wedding, I realized that I needed a mic and speakers for our ceremony and Ben gladly provided the equipment (Ben was not contracted for our ceremony). I also made a last minute request to have Ben facilitate the "Shoe Game" during our reception and he also gladly said yes. He has such a positive and can-do attitude, which was very reassuring during the planning process. Ben provided us with a song list, which included a wide range of songs from different genres; we were so impressed with the list and simply just noted a few of our favorites songs and gave Ben the freedom to choose what to play (we loved everything that he played at the wedding). However, we did make specific song requests for our first dance, introduction and last song of the evening, which he fulfilled.
My husband and I have already started to recommend Ben & his band to my family and friends who are getting married because we selfishly want another opportunity to celebrate

Ben and the band ROCKED it. Ben (the MC for the evening) made sure the event ran smoothly from start to finish. The venue was tricky in terms of size and sound but Paul (sound/tech) was able to accommodate perfectly, keeping the sound levels and energy just right throughout the event. And that's to say nothing of the band--two sets of nonstop hits that kept the energy up and the dance floor full. Comments from guests were along the lines of, 'love the song selection!', 'I can't believe they've played 6 songs straight in a row--and I haven't stopped dancing!' and 'this is the best wedding band I've ever seen!' Highly recommend!

Ben Mallare & Band we're absolutely FANTASTIC. Not only did they have my wedding guests on the dance floor until midnight, they went above and beyond to make our day feel special. As the bride, I was able to play the drums for "Livin on a prayer" and their manager even stayed after hours with the music equiptment so we could keep the party going until 2:30am. Ben's a total stud with great stage presence and was able to keep 250 guests up and moving. We also really appreciated the fact that he can MC our wedding and keep the flow of the night in check. Thank you Ben and Band!
This is an excellent vendor. We highly recommend!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Ben Mallare band was incredible.. they kept the dance floor going, and having a live band versus a DJ is such a fun addition to your reception. Ben and his team connected to the crowd, and were a pleasure to work with!
