Seamless, versatile, SO FUN!
Dat Band played our wedding ceremony and reception this February and I truly can’t even thank them enough for creating the most fun and personalized atmosphere for us! Chad checked in several times with our COVID updates, was always timely with responses and was so patient with our many many changes. Ultimately, Dat Band made all of our dreams come true... our guests raved about the Second Line and reception music! Not only amazing artists but really good people to work with. Would be crashing any event they do in the future!Sent on 04/01/2021

Chad and Dat Band are the kindest people ever!!! Chad went out of his way to communicate with me back and forth professionally! He was so generous and sent me a brochure and small token of his appreciation for just contacting him!! Truly one of the most thoughtful things ever! I can’t say enough about Chad and his willingness to make any bride’s day perfect!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!Sent on 02/25/2021

If you’re thinking about booking them do it now before it’s too late!
Dat Band played at our wedding and they were INCREDIBLE! I knew we wanted to hire them after seeing their extensive song list. They can do everything from old to new, rock, rap, country, etc. About a month before the wedding you fill out a detailed form regarding the songs you do and don’t want to hear. They do an amazing job of following this form! They also took song requests during the reception but they never played songs I didn’t want to hear. Everyone danced all night! In addition to their extensive song list they will learn up to 3 songs of your choice. There’s really nothing bad I can say about them and I can’t thank Dat Band enough for making our wedding fun and unforgettable!Sent on 12/22/2020
DAT BAND's reply:Wow Alli - thanks so much for the kind words! We hear lots of adjectives but INCREDIBLE is one we're going to hold on to for a while... thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts. We appreciate you so very much!!
