    Hire Kicks!

    My husband and I greatly respect the lead of the band, Gary. We hired Kicks over a year ago for our wedding in April after seeing them perform at two functions - once at a bar as a showcase and once at a cooperate event. We were very impressed both times. They are a fun group, and all of the band members are very talented. We "interviewed" a few bands prior to choosing Kicks, but we felt most comfortable with Kicks, largely because we felt that Gary seemed honest, real, and nice to work with, compared to other bands that treated us more like a number and just wanted to get our business. We never felt that way with Gary.
    Unfortunately, our wedding fell in the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we were forced to cancel our reception. Despite the band's lack of business and income during COVID-19, Gary was so understanding and empathetic and promised that he would provide us a full refund. He is a class act guy, honest, down to earth, and easy to work with! Prior to canceling our event, we had spoken with him on the phone multiple times, and he even met us at our venue to review logistics and set up. Although we were unable to have Kicks for our event, we highly recommend them for the reasons above.

    We hired Gary to be our DJ/MC for our wedding and we were extremely happy with his work. I had previously seen him in action at my cousins wedding 5 years ago and knew that he would be perfect for our wedding as well. He helped us to create our reception timeline and answered all of our questions. We were able to 100% customize our ceremony music, including video game sound effects in the middle of our ceremony. Gary didn't miss a beat and kept our families on the dance floor all night long. Our reception was a fantastic party thanks to his experience and professionalism.

    Gary and his band were fantastic to work with! All of our guests were on the dance floor the entire night thanks to them. We received numerous compliments from guests about how wonderful the music was. They played a variety of classic and contemporary songs that appealed to all of our guests. My bride and I were also very happy with our first dance song. Most importantly, Gary communicated extremely well with us throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend Kick's for any event!

Gary and Kicks are a fabulous band. They are some of the best musicians in San Diego, provide flexible configurations and have an extremely extensive playlist. Not only is Kicks a great band but Gary is a wonderful person. He was a mentor to me when I first started in the industry and I had the chance to see him in action on many occasions. He will make sure that you have what you need and deliver it with a smile! I trust Kicks with my referrals and you should too!
