our wedding was magical. I hope every bride feels this way. I am still on a high. All of our vendors brought their A game and made the night a memorable one for all of the best reasons. Diamond Alley went above and beyond to make our day special. The musicians are skilled at their instruments as well as vocally. They have amazing range and are adept at keeping things on track. They know how to read a crowd and to keep them dancing. I have been to many weddings...I can tell you, this one was one of the most fun and the band certainly played a large role in that. The very large dance floor was packed all night. People raved about the music. The band learned several special songs just for us. Bill Baker, keyboards, played for our ceremony and our cocktail hour. He also learned new songs for us. We were blown away. Each band member, Doug, Kris, Steve, Bill, Jim and Bill, is super talented and together they rock! The crowd raved that they performed songs better than the original artists. This band has been together a long time, they are true pros, and they knocked it out of the park for us. We are forever fans!Sent on 11/01/2013

We can't say enough good things about Diamond Alley - they we awesome. They played most of the songs we requested (we requested a lot of songs) and they even learned 3-4 songs that we asked them to learn if possible. They know how to entertain and get the guests dancing. We have seen and heard the band perform about a half dozen times in the last few years and we consider the band members friends. The band was not inexpensive to hire, but we considered it worth the price since they "made" the reception for 110 guests.Sent on 06/01/2014
We work a lot of events and have heard more than our fair share of local bands. I thought I couldn't be impressed any more - until I heard Diamond Alley. Their high energy performances won't just energize your guests -- they've got the power to rejuvenate the old, perhaps even resuscitate the dead! All of its members are accomplished musicians - and all of its members are powerful vocalists. Add to that an unbelievably high energy, strong performance skills and the ability to connect with their audience, and they are hands down the BEST band you will find. So look no further!
