    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’t 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’t wait to work with them again soon!

    The perfect wedding band option!

    Fresh Take was the perfect choice for us. They were able to curate the perfect cocktail hour DJ-style music and then absolutely killed the reception live band time. The initial booking and planning was great, and as we got closer to the wedding, Daniel ensured we had all the details ironed out. You get a great song list to choose from, across multiple genres and decades. They don't include many country songs, which was perfectly fine for us but might be a surprise to others. We did add a brass player for an addition cost and it really was the icing on the cake. You could add two if you'd like. They include a sound engineer which keeps balance and adds another level of professionalism. They are one of Virginia's best wedding bands for a reason. You will not be disappointed.

    Very fun and professional band

    Fresh take just played my wife and I's new years wedding reception re-do that was originally cancelled due to COVID-19. They were great. They learned two songs for us, and played a great collection of funk, classic rock, and modern favorites. Some of the songs they played were: shout, mr. brightside, shut up and dance, uptown funk, etc. All of which were crowd pleasers and had everyone on the dance floor. If you book them, be sure to spend the extra money to add the horns section! It was totally worth it. Daniel is the band leader and he was very responsive and amenable to our needs. Highly recommend.
