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 12/13/2018

Fantastic in every way
Easy to work with and provided a wonderful experience. My daughter (the bride) already wrote a review, but as father of the bride, I can't say enough good about this band. If you book them for your event you will not be sorry!Sent on 05/21/2019

Dat Band was THE BEST! We looked at so many bands and we chose based on reviews, price, and the demo’s. Because we are in Shreveport and they are in NOLA we weren’t able to make it down to hear them live. But the reviews are spot on. Dat Band has the best price for the amazing service you get! Armando had everyone dancing and the music was so good! One of my favorite things was that, in the craziness of the wedding, I hardly had any time to plan the music and I started to stress a little. Armando called me before the wedding and assured me that they had everything taken care of. I didn’t pick any of the reception music other than the first dance songs, which the band was so accommodating for and did an amazing job! Dat Band was outstanding when it came to reading the room and just playing the songs that everyone wanted to hear! That was so great because it took so much stress of off me and my family while we were planning the wedding. I can say, other than the music at one point, the band was one of the few things that I never got stressed about because of all of the reviews raved about how easy they made everyone. They absolutely exceeded my expectations in this area. They made it so easy and they were fun and helpful to work with! I think that Dat Band was definitely worth every single penny that we paid! I believe that the band is what really drives the wedding reception and it was so great and 150% worth it!! I loved having Dat Band at my wedding and it was a reception that I will never forget! If I had to do the whole thing over again, or recommend Dat Band to a friend, I would say DO NOT HESITATE. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!! We loved Dat Band so much that my husband and I are writing this review on our honeymoon because we want everyone to know how amazing they are! Thank you Dat Band for helping make it a stress-free day and for really bringing the party! We hope to see y’all again soon!!
