This band made our reception EXACTLY what we wanted it to be, an absolute party!! They are top notch vocals, performance and EVERYTHING. Phenomenal to work with and I'm searching for another opportunity to recommend or re-book them. Worth every penny & so much more. You will be hard pressed to find a better wedding band!Sent on 06/03/2019

If you want your wedding to be the best it can be then you need to hire For The Win. The band is awesome. My feeling for music at a wedding is...…."the music either makes it or breaks it". This band definitely made it!!!!!!!! Everyone attending said that it was the best wedding they ever were invited to in years. Just a incredible night of music and fun.Sent on 10/11/2018

Booking For the Win as our wedding band was one of the best choices we made throughout the wedding planning process. They were absolutely incredible! Our guests could not stop raving about how great For the Win was at bringing the energy to help get everyone out on the dance floor. Between Amanda and Ryan, they have the great vocal range to nail any song--and the instrumentals are electric! For the Win was very responsive to our questions and requests for the playlist and made the planning very easy. If you are looking for a band that can light it up with current hits, but also has the ability to play some motown/traditional wedding reception songs, we cannot recommend For the Win highly enough!Sent on 09/24/2018
For the Win is an INCREDIBLE band!!! Amanda, their lead, is wonderful and easy to work with. Booking them is without a question, the best decision you can make for your wedding!! They will have the dance floor going all night long, for sure!
OHMYGOODNESS!!!! November 18, 2017 was amazing! My clients hired “For The Win” to play for their wedding reception and people would NOT let the band go! FTW was supposed to finish their set at 10:00pm so we could send off the Bride and Groom by 10:15pm. However, the Father of the Bride asked them to play one more song, they played two! And THEN the crowd was chanting, “One More Song!” and they obliged with the Bride and Groom front and center standing on chairs! After the final set ended and the guests were clearing out, the Groom said to the Bride, “They were AMAZING! Can we party like this EVERY weekend?!” They loved it! The sound was well balanced and the band was very professional! When we (planners/photographers/videographers) were on our vendor-dinner-break, the band played “Take On Me”. It was so much fun watching the faces of the photographers and videographers when the lead singer HIT the high note in that song ... not once, not twice, but EVERY time! If you are looking for a band to play Top 40 hits from the last 40 years you don’t need to look any further! This band has definitely earned their name… For The Win!
