About For The Win

ForTheWin is a party band from the Washington DC area playing a wide variety of Top 40, Pop, Rock, HipHop, etc for clubs, weddings, festivals, private events, corporate events, and everything in between. Fronted by the dynamic duo of Ryan Angelo and Amanda Andresen, their electric stage energy, powerful vocals, and rapping skills never fail to impress and allow the band to play a wide range of material. Backed by one of the most experienced and talented bands in the DC area, their chemistry on stage is incredible and contagiously infects any crowd. Matt Greene on guitar is a veteran of the cover band scene and for lack of a better phrase.. he shreds. Holding down the groove are Bill Ledbetter on the drums and John Daise on da bass. Bill is a local music legend who's band Well Built was signed by Atlantic Records right out of college and John is a groove machine who previously played in funk, soul, and jazz groups in DC. Rounding everything out is Joe “Keys” Maier who brings a wide pallet of sounds and strong musicianship, literally allowing the band to play anything from Bruno Mars to the Beatles. The chemistry of this line-up is undeniable and makes them the ideal entertainment choice for any event. Their #1 goal is to make sure that all have a great time, sing along, jump, dance and leave entertained. #FTW

    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.

    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!

    The most consistent comment guests gave about my wedding was "how fantastic the band was!" Fantastic is not a strong enough adjective to describe how amazing, enthusiastic, and fun For The Win is. They made our wedding. I specifically chose them after hearing them live, because I knew they could pull off oldies for our parents and current hits for everyone else. They keep the party going all night long. I saw empty chairs and a full dance floor, couldn't have ask for a better band. They played everything we requested and even more. I can not highly recommend them enough, see them live and you'll see why!

    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!
