    Awesome Wedding Band

    We got married this past June 2022 and hired DMG to play at our wedding. We originally wanted DMG because they seemed like a genuinely fun group that knew how to get a crowd going (and good music/dancing was a priority for our wedding). They were so easy to work with, professional, and sounded amazing at our wedding. Everyone talked about how much fun they had and our dance floor was hopping throughout the night! We had both the band and DJ, making it a good combo of music selections. We also used their photobooth add on which was a hit and the photos are priceless! We strongly recommend hiring DMG if you're looking for an amazing time!

    No regrets!

    You should hire the Dan McGuire Group. My husband and I were struggling with the music for our wedding. We wanted a live band, but we’re big rock fans and didn’t want a ton of stereotypical “wedding” music. I’m also a musician and needed to have a talented group. We were about to give up and just get a DJ when we found DMG.

    Even if rock music isn’t your thing, I highly recommend DMG. They were a highlight of the entire event; people couldn’t stop talking about how good they were and how much fun everyone was having. I’m still getting compliments when I see people months later.

    It was really important to me to have a wedding where people got up and danced. I wanted people to get together and let loose and that is exactly what happened. DMG was really great at reading the room and with creating a setlist that ebbed and flowed throughout the evening. I’d also be remiss to ignore Adam, who emceed and was DJ during band breaks.

    All around, we had a wonderful experience, and I don’t have a single complaint.
