Fresh Take Is Our Favorite Band

We absolutely adored working with Fresh Take, both as a planner and having them out at Lakeside at Welch Estate! They rocked it out start to finish and from the MC moments (where they were able to adapt quickly and seamlessly to changes), to the great song selection (I don鈥檛 think I stopped moving once the music started), and SUPER quick load out at the end of the night (which is an amazing feat in and of itself). It was an absolute pleasure start to finish and I can鈥檛 wait to work with them again soon!

Hire this band!

We were blown away with Fresh Take's professionalism. Their band leader, Daniel, was incredibly organized and they were a pleasure to work with. Not only did they do all the very important, behind the scenes things right (logistics, communication, SOUND QUALITY, etc.) - their music was top notch. Our dance floor was FULL all night long, and they we were showered by compliments from our guests on our great band. They were also quite flexible - learning requested songs and even allowing a family friend to be a guest singer for our first dance. 10/10 recommend hiring this band!

Bottom line: amazing!

Fresh Take far exceeded our expectations on our wedding day! We knew they would be awesome from the tracks we had previewed and by how lovely and responsive they were leading up to the big day. Corresponding was easy, quick and honestly their enthusiasm in their responses made me more excited for the event. To be frank, they made our wedding! They played all night, no breaks and manged to mesh my tastes (pop, top 40) with my husbands (classic rock). They kept all of the generations entertained. Lastly, they were not simply a great cover band - they are all seriously talented artist. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that they were the best wedding band I've ever seen and I am so grateful they played on our big day!!
