    Phenomenal from start to finish

    We hired Soultones and DJ Live through Downbeat and they were phenomenal! They brought incredible energy and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. We had multiple guests comment on how amazing the musicians were. Joel and Diego were very clear and easy to communicate with leading up to the event and really took our preferences into account. We had very specific details we wanted (ex. having lives musicians play acoustic covers of EDM pre-ceremony) and they worked with us to make sure every detail was exactly the way we wanted. We would 100% work with them again and highly recommend them!

    Every wedding needs DJ LIVE!!!!!

    DJ LIVE was INCREDIBLE!!! They made our night so special! We had a little over 200 guests and all of them were on the dance floor. They were engaging, so friendly, and the ultimate hype men! We couldn't recommend them more. It has been one week since our wedding and our guests have not stopped reaching out to tell us how awesome they were!! Truly worth EVERY penny!

    Amazing experience

    LOVED the entire Downbeat team. Joel and Diego were great at communicating with me and helping me figure out what I needed. We went with DJ Live and that was the most amazing experience our guests absolutely loved it!!

What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!

Downtown Beat LA is the first group we recommend for our clients who are interested in a live band for their wedding or event. Their onstage presence, sound, vocals, and energy gets everyone on the dance floor moving and singing along! They also understand the logistics and dynamics of events and are not just there to perform but to create entire experience. They were a pleasure to work with and hands down our favorite band in the industry!

Confetti Skies Confetti Skies Wedding Planners

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Downbeat LA. Our client hired their band, The SoulTones, and I couldn't have been happier with their professionalism as well as their ability to get EVERYONE on the dance floor. All of the band members and sound crew were so great to work with and very respectful. The band was amazing and I loved their energy. I also really liked how the sound engineer was constantly checking to ensure the sound was perfect. Overall, I really enjoyed working with such a talented bunch of people and I enjoyed working with Diego on the planning side. If anyone is looking for a live band, I definitely recommend them! The quality of their services is outstanding.
