Greatest Wedding Band There Ever Was or Will Be
My wife and I are big music fans and knew we wanted to have a band at our wedding. That said, after having been to so many weddings and seeing average bands that play the same songs, we knew we wanted to find the perfect band that embodied our relationship and the party that we wanted to throw with our friends and family to celebrate our love.Sent on 06/09/2020
Dexter Lake Club Band was hands down the greatest thing about our wedding. These guys f****** rock. Seriously. From the moment we met Jamie at a showcase in the city and heard them, we knew this was the band we wanted to play at our wedding to have our guests dance and party their asses off.
Jamie and the group could not have been more professional, fun, enthusiastic, and amazing to work with. We had a small snafu with our original wedding date and had to move our wedding back three months and our biggest stressor was not the food, photographer, flowers, or anything, but ensuring the date lined up with DLCB’s availability. He knew we had to have them so our guests would hear the greatest wedding band there ever was.
Most importantly, the group knew how to cater their song choices to the audience. There were moments at my own wedding I truly felt like we were at a concert. I was looking around a bunch and saw people yelling lyrics at the top of their lungs. DLCB learned 5 songs for us which brought the house down. And I’m confident that for the rest of our lives we’ll never forget the feeling of screaming the lyrics to All These Things That I’ve Done with hundreds of our closest friends as we slowly ascended from the ground during the bridge of the song.
What. A. Night. My wife and I can’t thank each and every one of the members of DLCB for the energy and passion they brought to our most special night of our lives. My father-in-law even thanked each of them by first name during his Father-Of-The-Bride speech because of how badass this group is. Seriously. Five months later we still have people telling us that was the greatest band they’ve ever heard at a wedding and won’t forget that party. DLCB, we salute you.

Dexter Lake Club is the go-to wedding band for us!
Dexter Lake Club played for one daughter's wedding in 2014 and another daughter's wedding last month. Clearly we were satisfied the first time - and just as pleased this time. All genres, open to special requests, high energy, and . . . a delight to work with (which was especially important to me as the mother of the brides). Have one more daughter left to marry - and expect to be calling Jamie for her wedding as well!Sent on 05/29/2019

Best Wedding Band Ever!
All of my guests agreed that Dexter Lake Club Band was the best wedding band ever. We were up dancing from the first songs and hardly took a break to eat! The band is so good at creating a fun and welcoming energy and reading the room. Leading up to the wedding we gave them our suggested bands/genres that we liked. They did such a great job of curating the perfect song list. Multiple guests have asked us for their information because they were that good. Book this band you won't regret it!Sent on 10/28/2019
Dexter Lake Club Band Price Rates
It is always a thrill to provide sound for these great musicians when they are in my area. I work with lots of great bands but if I ever needed entertainment for a special event, this would be the band I would hire. Talented, friendly and always going the extra mile for their client. The Dexter Lake Club Band will provide all the professionalism and energy to make your event awesome.
Excellent band - highly recommended!
Simply the best. You'll be thrilled you booked them.
