    Best Band Ever

    The Frank Simmons Band is everything you could ask for in a wedding band & more. Frank was an absolute pleasure to work with in advance of our big day & somehow managed to top that with his professionalism the day of. With our wedding coordinator leaving after our ceremony & an inexperienced maitres d, Frank stepped up and went above & beyond as an MC to keep the night on track. That was in addition to leading a band that many of our guests said was, and I quote, “One of the best bands I’ve ever heard!” I even heard from a few guests who said they felt like they were at a concert because of how magnetic & charismatic the band was. However, that’s not to say that they took any attention off of my wife & I - in fact, they invited us up to be a part of the show and we felt like rock stars! Aside from Frank, the other band members have amazing range, allowing them to play any genre of music with ease. I cannot recommend The Frank Simmons Band highly enough. Save yourself the stress of searching for a wedding band and just book Frank - you will NOT be disappointed!

    Best in the biz - Ignition Band

    We hired Ignition to perform at our wedding celebration at The Bowery Hotel and can't thank them enough for being what may be the best wedding band in history. We were completely floored by how talented they are--they played hit after hit, with amazing transitions between songs, engagement with the crowd, and absolutely stellar skills. The compliments from our guests keep coming in! The song selection, energy, care, professionalism...everything was beyond top-notch and exceeded our highest expectations. Ignition is absolutely outstanding. We are so grateful for every minute of artistry and fun they provided us!

    Frank Simmons Band - Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia

    We hired the Frank Simmons Band for our wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia this past weekend, and simply put, they were incredible. Frank was easy to work with in the lead up to the wedding and expertly facilitated the evening. And most importantly, the band was outstanding! They set the tone for the entire wedding, had everyone out on the dance floor for hours, and our guests kept coming over to compliment the band and tell us how much fun they were having. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without the Frank Simmons Band!
