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!Sent on 06/07/2017
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

Amazing Wedding Band
When my husband and I spoke about what our non-negotiables were for our wedding a band was one of them. We had been to nearly 30 weddings together before our own and loved the energy a great band brought to the party. We were so thankful that our planner for Ben Mallare for us, because they were a hidden gem. They learned new songs that we had wanted for the ceremony and for first dances. We danced the entire evening including the time they spent packing up their equipment at the end of the night! They read the crowd and kept people on the dance floor during the reception, which is exactly what we wanted. The next day at our farewell brunch and even to this day we have friends and family comment on how amazing the band was and all we can say is, “Yeah, we know. They were the best.”Sent on 07/22/2019

Made our wedding magical!!
The Ben Mallare band is amazing!! They made our night so special, from the acoustic guitar at the ceremony, to the cocktail hour acoustics and the full band playing all night at the reception- they nailed it. Everyone was on the floor dancing having a great time and the band kept the energy up the whole night. We are so over the moon happy having the Ben Mallare Band at our wedding. It was magic.Sent on 07/14/2019
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!
