The Hot Topic Band was the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. From start to finish Dawn was a dream to work with!! They are so incredibly talented and professional. The band learned two songs that were not apart of their current song list (which is quite extensive) one being our first dance song Jason Mraz "I won't give up" and the other being a favorite of my now husband Theory of a deadman "Easy to love you" The entire event was preformed flawlessly and my guests could not stop talking about how great our band was. When we started wedding planning the first vendor we discussed was entertainment and I was not willing to have any less than a live band. My experience with Hot Topic Band proved to me that my instinct was right. I would love to have the chance to hire them again, or attend an event they are the entertainment for. I will recommend them as much as possible!Sent on 09/16/2012

Hot Topic was amazing! Our guests were raving all night about how great our band was! That is obviously important, but what was great for me, as a bride planning a destination wedding, was how accomodating and helpful Dawn was to work with during the planning process. We used Hot Topic for the ceremony and cocktail hour as well, what a great value to have them the entire evening! They exceeded any expectations and I would highly recommend them!Sent on 07/18/2012

Hot Topic Band was recommended to me through my reception venue. They were super easy to work with and REALLY GOOD! When we first contacted them Dawn was really sweet and let us come listen to them when they were playing for another party. They were great. They played everything we wanted and had an expert touch. Everyone was dancing til the end of the night. Even when they were playing tracks while breaking down and the music stopped mid way through the song, the guests kept dancing and singing the words because the band had everyone going! Hot Topic really made the party a good one!Sent on 06/08/2010
