    The Perfect Wedding Band

    A band is going to cost a pretty penny regardless of who you hire...so we wanted to make sure we picked a great one, and we did! We had seen For the Win in Clarendon and heard they did weddings, and we are SO happy we decided to book them! My husband and I were a bit worried about the first dance & father-daughter songs (we almost didn't even do them) but the band was able to shorten the songs we picked and also made those dances fun and relaxed. The rest of the night was a blast and everyone stuck around until the very end. I can't say enough good things about the entire band. We are excited to continue going to their shows in DC/Arlington.

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!
