    Excellent Wedding Band

    Locomotion did an amazing job at our 9/8 wedding. In the months leading up to our wedding, Gary was great to work with. He was responsive and able to answer any questions we had. On our wedding day, they kept the guests dancing and added so much
    our wedding day. Guests were so impressed with Locomotion. We had Locomotion play a bass and keyboard during the cocktail hour and then the band rocked it during our reception. I would definitely recommend Locomotion as a wedding band.

    Locomotion Band is AMAZING! My husband and I have seen them multiple times at different venues, but they hit it out of the park at our wedding!! They provided our guests with a variety of music to dance the night away too, never once was the dance floor empty! They were great to work with, they accommodated all of our personal requests, and made our Special Day extremely memorable! If you want to have a unique spin to your wedding day, choose Locomotion Band, you will not be disappointed!!

    My husband and I first saw locomotion at a friends wedding - about 6 months before we were engaged, and both took a mental note that we had to use them at our eventual wedding. The band has so much energy, a great horns section, makes sure to interact with the crowd, and plays great music that ALL of your wedding guests will enjoy. Once we were engaged I reached out to the band and was happy to find that they had great pricing, and even offered a discount if you booked early enough! I received quotes from a few other bands just to do my due diligence and nothing matched their offer. From then on out Gary was great to work with. We went to see them at a public show and he gave us a bottle of wine w/ card to congratulate us - and this was even before we let them know we were going to use them. They have a great song selection and if you have a song in mind for one of your dances that they do not play, they are willing to play the track for you. The wedding went even better than we could have imagined, with a packed dance floor for the entire night. After our wedding, so many guests reached out to us to say how amazing the band was and some even asking for their information to make recommendations to friends. All in all - great experience!
