Choose Blockhead! They're fantastic

Blockhead was amazing! Our guests cannot, even a month after the wedding, stop talking about how fantastic the music was. They kept the dance floor hopping all night. They were incredibly easy to work with, so reasonably priced, and truly just a highlight of our wedding experience.

Made our wedding SO much fun!

We hired Blockhead for our wedding on 10/15/22 and it was easily the best decision we made in the planning process. Can鈥檛 say enough good things about this group of talented musicians and our friends and family can鈥檛 stop talking about how awesome the band was. From taking care of the sound/gear for the ceremony, acoustic for cocktail hour, jamming out at the reception and DJ-ing our fave hits during the breaks - they did it all. They were professional, responsive, easy going and just an absolute pleasure to work with.

Cannot recommend enough!

Our first priority wedding hire was Blockhead. They played at my cousin's wedding and we were on the dance floor the whole night- the energy they brought to her wedding has been unmatched at any of the other weddings we've gone to.

They played a mix of music from your traditional wedding songs to Blink 182- our whole crowd had a blast and we still have people mentioning how great the band was!

As far as planning they got back to all of our emails promptly. They arranged it so our officiant could use their mic and mic stand, and because of them I had beautiful acoustic guitar music when walking down the aisle. Their planning sheet helped us stay organized and on track.

Overall we are so happy we had them at our wedding and we hope to dance to their music at other family weddings in the future!
