    Amazing music

    My husband and I first heard Dat Band at my friends wedding and immediately feel in love with them. We hired them for our wedding and they played exactly the kind of music that we were looking for. They are interactive and get the crowd involved which is what we wanted. Even taking song request, Chad made sure I was okay with anything before it was played. Not only that, there was a small situation with our venue the week of the wedding that thank God Chad made me aware of which helped save a lot of headaches. I would hire them over and over again.

    A Home Run!

    Two weeks later after Dat Band performed at our wedding on 11/3/18, my guests are still telling me how great the band was and how much they enjoyed the dancing. Choosing Dat Band was one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process. There were a few things that really stood out as "above and beyond" in our experience: (1) They kept the crowd dancing for our entire reception!!! They didn't just perform on stage but actually went out into the crowd and interacted with the guests! I was also pleasantly surprised that they encouraged a dance-off with my husband--all night long people were complimenting us on our spontaneous dance moves :). (2) Chad was always the first one to reach out to let us know of upcoming decisions we needed to make around our song choices, secondline path, and reception timeline. Other brides who have gone through this process I'm sure agree with me that there is a LOT of initiation required when it comes to communication with multiple wedding vendors, so I truly appreciated Chad's proactive approach and felt like we were always good to go with the logistics around the band. (3) If you plan on doing a secondline then it is definitely worth it to get their all inclusive planning package. Chad carved out several hours of his time to work with the city to get our route finalized and on the day-of the wedding served as the primary point of contact with the police to ensure that the parade started on time. To sum it up, they made the process super easy and delivered on every aspect - it was a home run. #welovedtheband #DAT BAND FUNK YOU UP
