Each band is trained and experienced in working with you and your caterer, event planner, photographer and videographer to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly from the service or ceremony to the last dance of the evening. Of course, we don't neglect the music either. When it comes to performance, Entertainment Exchange bands are unmatched.  Whether you choose a premier Entertainment Exchange band or another of the 100's of bands available through our network of cooperative agencies - Entertainment Exchange is your one stop shop for bands.

DJ's: Your DJ's musical selections and personality can make or break any party. That's why at the Entertainment Exchange, we feature only the most experienced and professional Disc Jockeys. Our DJ's act as your "Master of Ceremonies", help you plan and direct your schedule of events, dress according to your instruction, and make sure your guests have a great time. So, for your Wedding reception, choose a DJ from the Entertainment Exchange to help create a magical event with just the right music and a polished professional performance.

Classical Ensembles: For your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour or a grand reception, nothing can substitute for the elegance of a string ensemble. Our Bel Canto Ensembles provide full-time, excellent musicians from the Washington/Baltimore area symphonies, shows and concerts. They are skilled in performing classical, Broadway show tunes, and contemporary music and can play as stationary or strolling combinations.

Jazz Groups: There is nothing like the cool sophistication of jazz music to liven up a cocktail hour or wedding reception. For listening or dancing pleasure, a small jazz combo or a full big band swing orchestra may be exactly the unique entertainment that you are seeking.  Entertainment Exchange offers a wide variety of skilled jazz groups that can perform music ranging from standards, big band and swing to popular jump boogie and contemporary "smooth" jazz.

Entertainment Exchange can also help you with many other aspects of your wedding.  We can provide: Audio Production and Equipment, Dance Lighting Packages, Staging, Sound Systems, and many other theme event entertainment options.  We can also offer cooperative discounts with a number of fantastic photographers and videographers that we consider our business partners.  Ask us how to save 10% on video and photo services.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard, "The bride and groom never get to enjoy the wedding reception." Well, 'Round Midnight made that impossible - we had the time of our lives. The dance floor was packed the entire time and all we could talk about the next day was how great the band was. The variety of music they played suited all of our guests and from start to finish, 'Round Midnight was so easy to work with! I highly recommend for anyone wanting live entertainment at their wedding.

I have to say that Free Spirit blew it out of the park. I can't say enough about the band. Free Spirit is absolutely amazing. They are a class act. Everyone was wonderful and I can't thank you all for making Meagan and Max's reception a night to remember. The crowd was on the dance floor all night long and everyone came up to me asking where we found this incredible band. I was told it was the best wedding they had been to and a big part was Free Spirit. I have given your name and information to several guests who are looking for bands to play at their wedding next year. I also want to thank Mike Ostrow personally for his quick responsiveness and how easy he was to work with. Everything ran so smoothly and with such ease and perfection.
