Fantastic high energy performance that left everyone raving
I cannot speak highly enough about the absolutely amazing experience Dat Band delivered for my wedding reception. My husband and I knew from the start that we were looking for a band that would keep people dancing all night long, and Dat Band delivered and more. The wide range of songs, from rock n roll classics, funk, and current hits, combined with Dat Band's musical skill, made them really stick out to us-- and their reputation for high energy and for drawing people onto the dance floor really sealed the deal for us. Once we got in touch with them, the process for booking was fast and easy. The band manager got in touch with me right away, and was always available to answer questions. We had a few special requests for first dance songs and for our exit song, and even though the band didn't already know them, they were enthusiastic to learn them and did a sensational job. I'll never forget the way my heart raced when I heard the opening notes to my husband's and my special song on that magical night. We found that the band really delivered amazing value for their price-- I cannot stress enough what an amazing job Dat Band did for us. Every single person I've talked to about the wedding has raved about the band, and I have been told, over and over since, that it was the most fun wedding anyone can remember. I would book Dat Band again in a heartbeat-- Their true professionalism and off the walls fantastic showmanship and performance really set the mood for the whole night, and have created memories that are going to last us a lifetime. I've already been encouraging my friends to book them like wildfire.Sent on 12/16/2018

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.Sent on 12/01/2018

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 UPSent on 11/20/2018
