I can't say enough about Down City Band! Growing up in families of musicians, and being musicians ourselves, my (now) husband and I were very, very picky when it came to booking a band for our wedding. It had been my dream since I was a little girl to have a band play at my wedding, as my father played bass in a bunch of wedding bands (Shoutout to The Purple Shades!) and I wanted to honor his fondness for that time in his life. My husband and I checked out bands from New York City to Boston to Connecticut to New Jersey, and everywhere we looked, we felt like the bands were super tacky, subpar at musicianship (I know, we're music snobs), or outrageously expensive. We did not have an extra $8,000 to throw down for entertainment. Then we came across Down City Band. We went to see them play at The Villa, and we were thrilled at their performance! Maceo sounds like Otis Redding! Both Maceo and Jessica have so much energy and kept the crowd on their feet the whole time. No need for gimmicks with this band--they are skilled musicians who can play funk, soul, jazz, dance, pop, and rock. Once we asked them to play at our wedding, I couldn't believe how affordable they were! Dave, the bassist, was the main person with whom I communicated and coordinated during the months leading up to the wedding. He was so positive and calm and always said "It's gonna be fun!" in a way that got me more excited about my own wedding. He helped me with my pre-wedding stress immensely. The band even agreed to play a song with both of our fathers! Since our wedding, everyone has been raving about the band, and my mother told me yesterday that it was hands-down the best part of our wedding. It brought such a great energy to our event and I am convinced that it played a huge role in the memories people will keep with them from that day. I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 08/13/2017

Have a Party with DownCity
If you want to create a party, DownCity Band delivers. They have it all: horns, strings, drums, vocals, choreography, enthusiasm... In terms of preparation, it was very easy to work with DownCity so no need to stress. Their professionalism was outstanding, as was the hoppin' dance floor their music helped to create.Sent on 05/23/2019

Professional, talented and an absolute blast!
Our guests raved about Down City Band!! Each member was fun, talented and professional. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. Dave was incredibly easy to communicate with throughout the planning process and they were all so accommodating on our big day. Their song list was extensive and they even asked if there were additional songs we would like them to learn for us. I could not say more positive things about this band. BOOK THEM!!!Sent on 06/19/2019
