    Talented musicians and a great performance!

    Blockhead was AMAZING. We cannot recommend them enough, and we credit them with making our wedding SO MUCH FUN. They played such a great variety of music that we had teens and seniors breaking it down on the dance floor all night. Every guest we’ve spoken to since the wedding can’t stop raving about how fantastic they were. Several people told us they don’t usually like wedding bands but Blockhead was a totally different experience. We love that they perform locally so we can go for a date night or out with friends to see them again! They also performed an acoustic duet for our ceremony and cocktail hour and our guests were recording videos of them playing and singing along. The whole experience was easy, personal and exciting. It felt more like a special event to have a great band play at our reception versus a DJ. Anyone who is on the fence about booking a band or having trouble finding the right one, look no further. Blockhead is everything you need and more for an incredible value!

    Do yourself a favor and book this band for any event you're having. We booked them never having heard them before so I was a little nervous because their price is so reasonable. THEY ARE AWESOME. From working with us so much to determine the right music for the night (and we were difficult) to bringing an amazing amount of energy to the dance floor - they are better than anyone else out there and our guests could not stop talking about them. The whole band was amazing and so much fun... just book them. I have been to weddings with 12 piece bands that cost $20,000 and Blockhead is better.
