    Great Experience with Live Wire

    Anthony and the Live Wire team were excellent! They had our wedding rocking from the moment they started and our guests were blown away by the talented singers. We would highly recommend them for any wedding.

    AMAZING & sooo much fun

    Anthony and his Live Wire band are incredible. They definitely know how to get people up and dancing. We had a day wedding and was worried that people would be not be in the mood to dance, but Live Wire took care of that and had people dancing the afternoon away and no one wanted it to end.

    Best Wedding Band!

    My husbands brother & close friend both used livewire for their weddings, so we knew we were going to have a great band. They did an amazing job and everyone had a blast dancing all night. I received many compliments from my wedding guests! They also took requests, when I wanted to here some taylor swift they played her right away! My kind of band!!

Anthony and his team were amazing to work with. They were very reliable, showed up on time and had the schedule printed/ready to go. I was very impressed how organized their band members were the day of the wedding. The couple was very pleased and I would definitely recommend them to others for weddings/events!

Hawk Inn and Mountain Resort Hawk Inn and Mountain Resort Hotel Weddings

Live Wire is a fantastic band with amazing energy! I would recommend them highly. They had the crowd on the dance floor all night, and the female lead singer was so entertaining and engaged the guests.
