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!!Sent on 06/20/2018

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!Sent on 07/01/2018

My husband and I could not be happier with our experience working with Locomotion for our wedding at the Wadsworth Mansion last July. The musicians are top-notch, the music selection appealed to all ages and we had a blast dancing that night. The band was thorough in understanding our needs and requests ahead of the wedding and the night ran as planned. We had to make a last minute call on where to set up due to the weather forecast, but Locomotion was incredibly flexible and ultimately helped us go with plan A! We've received many compliments about the band that night and the fun atmosphere they created for our wedding!Sent on 06/22/2018
