Seriously BEST Wedding Band Ever!
I chose to go with Rasheeda and The Entourage Band after I'd seen a couple of reviews online and saw some of their videos. All the reviews said they were great, but in fact, they were beyond FANTASTIC!!!! I come from a dancing family (Irish Catholics) and everyone shows up at our family weddings with their dancing shoes - my wedding was no exception. Rasheeda and the rest of The Entourage Band had people out on the dance floor even before the toasts began! Throughout the night and in the days afterward, everyone kept saying the band was out of this world!!!!Sent on 10/21/2018
So what makes them great? A couple of thoughts here....
1) Great vocal diversity!
The vocalists on the band were so diverse that they were able to cover a huge repertoire of songs. From Motown to ballads to modern day R&B, they were amazing. My sister (Maid of Honor) said there were multiple times throughout the night when the vocals were so good she thought it was a recording of the original. Simply amazing!
2) Seamless Song Transitions
The band seamlessly transitions from one song to the next which amped up the energy in the room (tent). The beauty wasn't just that the songs they played were great it was how they coupled them together and then created smooth transitions - no awkward pause, no leaving the dance floor!
3) Personalized Touches
The last song of the night was AMAZING. One of the vocalists brought us home with an awesome rendition of Shout including him jumping off the stage, coming up to myself and Casey (husband) and providing a personalized message. The whole place was going wild and the extended and more personalized version made it feel like a great sendoff. Finally, like many bands, Rasheeda offered to learn a song for the event. I requested "Say A Little Prayer" which is a beloved family song. They learned it and then played it as the encore - great idea and really brought a personal touch to the wedding.
4) Incredibly Responsive and Helpful
Throughout the planning process, Rasheeda was incredibly responsive and helpful. She proactively reached out to me about songs, planning, and other logistics. She even helped coordinate the sound for my ceremony which at the last minute changed locations. I cannot overstate how important this is to make a great evening. Rasheeda was an amazing professional, incredibly easy to work with, and an amazing singer.
I have no doubt that my family will continue to gush about The Entourage Band for years to come and I hope that we can bring them down to Philadelphia for future events (FYI - they travel as far south as Philadelphia and as far north as Boston!). Could not recommend this band more highly!!!
Entourage Band's reply:Hi Maurie. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful review! We had an amazing time at your wedding on Shelter Island. Everything was fantastic...the grounds, the guests, the wedding planner and last but not least the couple of honor. Thank you again for letting Entourage Band be a part of your special day.

Talented, Responsive, Entertaining
We had a wedding on July 4th 2019. Entourage Band was our entertainment. We asked Rasheeda to add a "Israeli Specialist" for our Hora. We were not let down. Their singers were very talented. The Israeli Specialist was great. I just wish we had more time to dance with the band playing. No complaints what so ever.Sent on 07/08/2019
Entourage Band's reply:Hi Seth & Jodi! What an amazing wedding at Windham Mountain Ski Resort.
