We are blessed to have one of the best bands in the country. Such a bold statement, but absolutely true! The great thing about Los Angeles is that most musicians and performers who live here came from somewhere else with a dream. Having that as your starting point makes for an outstanding talent pool when a bandleader puts together a team to work with.
My West Coast band has been a premium leader in the industry for over 18 years now with over 1900 weddings and parties to show for it. We've performed from Los Angeles to Paris, and NYC to Maui for celebrity weddings and local brides with the same energy and committment to excellence for all.
Most of our players also tour individually with world reknown artists such as Rod Stewart, Keb Mo, Arturo Sandoval, Natalie Cole, Bobby Caldwell, John Tesh and Barry Manilow to name a few. We even have an X Factor star in our wonderful female vocalist Elaine Gibbs.

Chuck Wansley After Hours truly made our wedding unforgettable. They played the Jurassic Park theme song to the delight of all our guests, learned a Jeff Perry classic for our first dance, and kept everyone on their feet all night! The band's energy and performance left a great impression on all our guests -- we fielded so many compliments about how we had the "BEST BAND EVER". Both Chuck and Suzanne were so helpful and professional throughout the whole wedding planning process, which could get stressful when planning a wedding from across the country. It was so comforting to know that on top of all the wedding planning minutiae, we didn't need to worry about our top priority (a killer band!).Sent on 11/01/2015

Everyone had a great time in huge part because of this great band. The female vocalist was incredible! Chuck and Suzanne was so easy to work with. They listened to what we wanted as a couple and worked and gifted us with the most fun and memorable evening of dancing and music and magic!Sent on 02/27/2015

Chuck Wansley & his band is hands-down the best in the business. Of course, they can play, and yes, they can sing, but what's most important? Chuck can improvise at the drop of a hat. He can read the crowd when they look like they're getting tired or antsy. For our father/daughter song, we gave Chuck the title but didn't realize there are 2 versions of the song. When he started playing the other version, we looked at him in confusion, and the man didn't miss a beat! The band switched versions before we even knew what happened!Sent on 09/27/2014
This is the band you want at your wedding.
As a professional singer and bandleader, I had the opportunity to work with Chuck in several occasions and all I can say is that Chuck, is a number one class act. In my list he is number one. I truly recommend Chuck Wansley - After Hours. Yari More.
i first met Chuck Wansley through a popular entertainment booking company decades ago. it was just magic when the ballroom doors opened and Chuck was leading the band. The guests couldn't wait to get to the dance floor to start partying, even if the bride and groom hadn't been introduced already. Chuck is able to get the energy of the party going even before the formal introductions and first dance happen. that's always a great sign that you are in the presence of a special brand of entertainment. Chuck's rich and mellow voice morphs from crooner to soul, to disco, to show tunes, and beyond. You know with Chuck that you are getting the real deal! A sharp dresser, warm wit creates a fun atmosphere to engage everyone in making their experience one of the best it can be with Chuck Wansley and After Hours band.
Hands down, the best wedding band in the country. Tight sound, professional musicians, covers that are better than the originals, prepare to party with Chuck Wansley and After Hours.
