Amazing Band!!

My wife and I hired DownCity Band simply because they were one of two bands on our venue’s “Approved Vendors” list. We looked them up on WeddingWire and saw their good reviews, but were admittedly a little nervous about them since we hadn’t heard them play before. All of that concern went out the window (or rather, tent flap) as soon as they played our entrance song, Dancing Queen by ABBA. They were fantastic!! People were coming up to us all night saying how great the band was. The dance floor was packed all night long as they played one great song after another. They’re energy was electric, and they really made for a fun, memorable evening for everyone there. We can’t recommend them highly enough. And they’re so affordable!!! Worth absolutely every penny.

Best band ever!

What can I say but ALOT about Down City Band!! If you are debating whether to hire a DJ or a band and you come across this band - I highly suggest you hire DCB for your wedding or function!!
From the moment I reach out to David he was very quick to get back to me and helped me thru the process. I was not a bride that had very specific songs or requirements, and David gave me many suggestions and I had trust they would make our day great, and that they did.
I did my due diligence and reached out to a couple of other bands and DJ's to compare. By far for what you get with DCB ever penny is more than worth it( they are more than reasonable). One of the members played the keyboards for our entrance for the ceremony plus they had 3 band members playing for our cocktail hour. Then the full band played for the reception, and they rocked it!!
Every person at my wedding, literally came up to me at some point during the night to tell me "this band is AMAZING, what a great find! " I couldn't agree more...
When I told my husband that I got a band for our wedding - he had no idea who they were, so about a month before the wedding the band was playing at a local establishment so I took him to see them. He was more then happy that they were going to play for out wedding!!
So again, I cannot express how professional, helpful, trustworthy and all around amazing Down City Band is, and will make your special day even more special!!
Forever thankful!!!

The best!

DownCity Band was AMAZING to work with. They were so great with communication leading up to the wedding which really put me at ease. And then at the wedding they were INCREDIBLE! Our guests have nonstop been talking about the music and how good they were. The dance floor was packed the entire night, I couldn’t be happier that I worked with them!
