GREAT Band!! Love these guys!!
I first started listening to The Out of Town Blues Band at the New Vegas Lounge when I lived in DC. They quickly became my favorite band. I recently threw a birthday party in Wilmington, NC and decided to hire them. They planned accordingly, and made the trip down. They delivered above and beyond what I expected. Justin asked me ahead of time if there were any special song requests, and they delivered them (Michael Jackson, Biggie, Rick James...)!
We had an older crowd including my mother and some of her friends present at the party early in the evening, so they tailored the music to them, but everyone there loved it (Motown/beach music, etc.). Surprisingly, my mother and her friends were the first ones on the dance floor. After a brief set break, they came back on and played the songs I requested. We loved it! Justin made special note that it was my birthday and made it the best one I've ever had. You CANNOT go wrong with booking this band. I am happy to be a personal reference if you would like. I love these guys and you will too!

We booked the band for three hours, and I could have easily listened to them for three more. We did a walk-through ahead of time to confirm location as well as a backup plan, and they were great about answering any questions. They took a few requests which they played really well, and their general style of music, I'd generally refer to as Motown/jazz, is something that a lot of people know and love and can dance to, so as far as pleasing a crowd it is hard to go wrong with the Out of Town Blues Band.

If you care about good music and great dancing at your wedding, hire this band. Hiring these guys was one of the first choices we made, and one of the best. Highly recommended. They are easy to work with and extremely talented musicians. They can play everything - we classic Sinatra to disco to blues and they performed beautifully. They also are there to make sure that you and your guests have a great time and will get in to the celebrations with you. Great music and experience. Worth every penny. You can go hear them any Friday or Saturday night at New Vegas Lounge and see for yourself.
