Awesome Music for a Memorable Wedding Reception!!
One Love is hands down the best wedding band. If you are able to get them for your wedding, DO IT! We have received so many compliments from guests about the music at our wedding reception. One Love was instrumental (no pun intended) in making sure our guests had a great time!Sent on 10/31/2018
Leading up to the wedding day, Eric and Melissa were great communicators, and made sure they had a good sense of the type of music and experience we were looking for. We had a few conference calls to walk through our requests and the format of the reception, and then they coordinated with our venue to take care of the rest. It was very organized and seamless!
One Love is comprised of a group of extremely talented musicians - they are a "stacked" team. In addition to sounding great, they have a very wide range in terms of what they can play. Over the course of the evening, they were busting out 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s pop, motown / soul, hip hop / R&B, punk rock, latin - you name it! There was something for everyone. They even went out of their way to learn some new songs we requested ("Coming Home" by Leon Bridges for our first dance and "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" by Stevie Wonder for the father / daughter dance) - all of which sounded amazing. One Love did a great job of curating the musical selection - they ended up playing a number of hits from my college years (which obviously got my buddies all fired up). Everyone had such a great time on the dance floor.
I would recommend One Love to any bride or groom who wants exceptional music at their wedding (or for anyone looking to throw an awesome party, for that matter)!

A Dance Party for the Books!
Eric, Melissa, and all of the members of One Love are truly incredible. From our first phone call, we could tell that they would help us make our wedding day one to remember. They did not hesitate to take on our first dance song, which is not particularly mainstream, and they nailed it. They started playing from the moment guests walked in until the end of the night, and all of our guests made it out onto the dance floor. They played a song for everyone, and people still comment on how wonderful our band was. They are not only extremely talented but incredibly kind, patient, thoughtful, and professional. We feel so lucky that we found One Love and hope that our paths cross again with them. They truly exceeded our expectations and made our wedding a dance party that is one for the books!Sent on 11/02/2018
