Booked A House on Fire via Best Bands for our January 7, 2017 wedding in Lake Placid, NY and we have SO MANY good things to say! We are from Southern CT throwing a wedding in Upstate NY, so we had never heard the band in person. We booked based on the great reviews, some awesome videos/recordings, and their impressively long and varied song list. Hans (who heads things up) was extremely communicative and very receptive to our specific needs (very detailed song requests for what we were going to walk out to, cut the cake to, first dance/parent dances etc.). Everything went off without a hitch and they perfectly nailed doing a seamless mix of classic rock, top 40s, and more eclectic Phish/Grateful Dead/reggae (which is the stuff we’re into!). Everyone raved about how great they were and how unique and fun the music selection was (not your typical top 40 wedding stuff… which was EXACTLY what we were going for!). They also went way out of their way, not only by coming from Burlington, VT to Lake Placid, NY on a frigid, snowy day, but by bringing their acoustic drum set and by letting my husband’s band from back in the day do a few songs at the end. Plus, everyone was so nice, so enthusiastic, and clearly having a great time! Book them!

Book them!! They are the best! We have had them for several events and they get everyone out on the dance floor. From 3 years old until 90 years old. They play great music and the singers are awesome!! I highly recommend House on Fire.

Holy cow!! That is all I can think to say! House on Fire did BEYOND an amazing job at our wedding. 95% of the guest (big wedding of 200) were out of their chairs and dancing, so much so that the floor was shaking and bending. When the band finished their last song, the whole crowd proceeded to shout "ONE MORE SONG", which they gladly played! I cannot speak more highly of this band and the truly fantastic job they did at our wedding! Thank you guys so much! I would recommend this band 20 times over.
