Amazing music, Genuinely Kind Team

I cannot say enough amazing things about the Franklin Alison Band and their talented musicians! Their musical performance was the talk of the night at our wedding, and every guest said that the band made the event (and we agree). The band read the crowd throughout the evening and flexed their musical selections to make sure that everyone was up and on the dance floor.

The band learned our first dance (Ed Sheeran's First Times) and performed such a beautiful rendition of it that I thought it was better than the original version! Several performers also played during cocktail hour, and the jazz trio was the perfect addition to this part of our night.

I also want to comment on how genuinely lovely everyone in the band is. I lost my mom about a year before my wedding day. She had helped us pick the band before her passing, and so she had been in some communication with the band manager, Laraine. Between my mom's passing and our wedding day, Laraine emailed me several times to let me know that she was thinking of me and my family during this difficult time -- something that wasn't necessary but really meant a lot to me as the wedding approached. The band was able to hold space for some of the big emotions that everyone at our wedding felt, and I appreciate that they were able to both entertain while also being sensitive to the mixed emotions felt by many of us on our wedding day. In addition to being fantastic musicians, they are also great people who go above and beyond their actual job.

Some final pieces of information that helped us select this band for our wedding were: The band will not take set breaks throughout the night and will instead filter musicians in and out so that the music doesn't stop and start periodically. That was important to us, as we wanted to ensure continual music during our reception. We also liked that the band has been together for a really long time and doesn't switch musicians regularly (as this is something that does happen in other bands we looked at). These were key pieces of information that helped us to select them as our wedding band, and we could not more highly recommend them.

Best band ever!

We could not have been happier with Franklin & Alison Music! Laraine was extremely communictive through the entire planning process and was phenomenal to work with. The band was amazing! Our guests are still giving us compliments on how much they loved the band. They read the vibe of the room from start to finish and our dance floor was packed the entire evening! You need to hire them for your wedding. It took our wedding up 10 notches and we are so thankful that we had the opportunity to book them!

Did you ever hear a song and couldn't remember the name of it?

There are thousands of songs in my head! Iknow the titles of these songs & most of the lyrics. I can recall the names, faces and first dances of vitually all the brides and grooms we've worked with over the years.

You want to hire someone like that to design the music for your event. Let's get creative
