Professional, expert live performance of a calibre rarely seen in wedding bands
The Straytones were exceptional, with high praise from our wedding guests (all-night dancers & outside listeners).Sent on 09/20/2019
We were thrilled by their unexpected song choices, outside of lists of songs that they sent us beforehand (upon which we were given the chance to veto 8 songs and insist upon 12 particular tracks), and their willingness to accommodate us all round. They learned (as standard with their regular package) 3 songs and we were delighted by excellent interpretations of our first dance ('The Book of Love' by the Magnetic Fields - which they gave some lovely fiddle improvisation to, as we hoped for) and Grace Petrie's 'Northbound' (which they gave a Johnny Cash-esque stomp), in particular. But they also agreed to perform the hora for us, which was above and beyond their agreement with us, but they were happy to do it which was lovely.
As a former music journo, I have seen many live bands & the bride is a musician too, so it's impressive that the band exceeded our expectations. Their setlist selection, pace, style & enthusiasm, willingness to gauge the audience & ricochet the energy around the room all made them the perfect choice for us and for our guests. There was plenty of dancing, singing and enjoyment had by all. Even those for whom a live band was too loud were impressed and enjoyed by what they heard from outside while chatting with fellow guests and made a special point of saying so to us afterwards.
All in all, the Straytones are exceptional and although we knew they would be good (at the very least), we wren't prepared for just how much they brought to our evening. Really highly recommended.

My go-to band! They're the best.
Rogue Radio is the best 9 piece band I’ve ever hired & I hire a lot as an event planner. They go above and beyond and have such a positive attitude. They are young, attractive, energetic, and sound AMAZING! It was an elite wedding for 250 guests in Malibu for in a huge property and they nailed the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They were accommodating in every step of the way and the band lead Sean went above and beyond for over 3 months to get on phone calls with the couple and myself to make sure every detail was perfect. This is the band you want without a doubt, they are my go to from on!Sent on 09/24/2019

My husband & I did a ton of research for each vendor we chose. I’m talking excel charts and spreadsheets galore. We talked to at least 6 bands before Crowd Theory. A work colleague of mine recommended them because she had used them for a charity event. Once we heard their music and started communicating with Sean, we were sold. When I say you NEED to hire Crowd Theory right now, I mean it. Stop looking at bands because they are it for you. Even 7 weeks later, our guests are still gushing about how amazing they were, as are we. The day of the wedding my husband and I were over the moon about them, they sounded incredible. Sean is amazing as well. From the beginning he was so easy to communicate with and was so willing to work with us on what we wanted for both the ceremony and reception. He’s the coolest guy- like someone you want to be friends with afterwards. They exceeded our expectations to the nth degree. We are so grateful to Sean and Crowd Theory and could not have imagined having any other band at our wedding. We have had so many people tell us our band was out of this world and we couldn’t agree more. I want to have another event just to hire them again. You need to hire them. You will not be disappointedSent on 10/07/2019
