    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!

    Congrats, Katie! And thank you so much for the review! Appreciate you having us. Such a great crowd, a beautiful venue, great food and an awesome time

    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!
