About Lucky Penny

We are wedding specialists and have played everything from formal wedding receptions at the Ritz Carlton, to beach weddings -- literally on the sand in Sarasota, so we can tailor a plan for your wedding.

You can appreciate how the right band either makes or breaks an event and how important it is to hire a band that knows the wedding reception and ceremony territory well. The Knot magazine does a Best of Weddings issue each year and we were named "Best Wedding Reception Band three years in a row. We were also named Wedding Band of the Year for Central Florida for 2018 by Luxe Life Magazine and we are Wedding Wire rated. We know how to PRODUCE the show for the entire evening. We usually start out with some lighter, acoustic-oriented music and then segue to dance music, and the place gets very FUN. We play everything from Elvis to Lady Gaga and we get hired most often for our ability to please a crowd of all ages. From 60's to today -- we got 'em covered. We strong 80s and 90s with killer Journey, Bon Jovi, as well as Top 40 hit dances songs from artists like Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, and even Kings of Leon. What we play is hit music that people LOVE to dance to.

Very few bands have a five-star rating on the Gigmasters site, and with 58 testimonials, no one has a longer list of satisfied customers than we do. We have professional sound, full lights, and even a DJ machine for break music. We have a professional announcer in the band so we do all your MC work. The bottom line is when you hire us for your reception the band is one less thing you will have to worry about. And, of course, our Band Coordinator will make sure all your special dances and events happen on schedule so you can RELAX and enjoy the evening. Lucky Penny is a Florida corporation and carries $2 million in liability insurance, important to you and important to your venue. Turnkey all the way.

    I cannot say enough great things about Lucky Penny. We were honestly blown away. I first heard about Jim Hopes and Lucky Penny from my sister-in-law. They had looked at the band for her and my brother's wedding, but they were already booked on their wedding date. Then, two other friends mentioned Lucky Penny. By the third time, we knew we needed to check them out.

    We went to a rehearsal at Jim's house and were impressed with their playlist variety and sound, so we decided to book them. We knew they would be great, but we didn't understand how great. We, along with our 130+ guests, danced the night away...literally...until just after midnight. The band sounded awesome. They are all talented and professional and they cover most genres and just about every decade from the 50s to now. The dance floor was packed with guests from 3 years old to 85 years old until the very last song. Jim did a great job with our introductions and modifying the band's playlist to fit our style. Their new lead singer is fantastic. Their sound guys were accommodating and played all of our song requests during the band breaks.

    THANK YOU Lucky Penny for helping make our wedding everything we dreamed and hoped it would be!

    I know a lot of couples reading this have probably gone through a dozen or more choices for a band and it's very difficult to make the choice either blind or from a few YouTube videos. It was hard for us, too. But there was no question we made the right choice. We were thrilled with Lucky Penny because not only were they fantastic, but they played throughout the night.

    Jim took the time to go over the music plan in detail with us in the days leading up to the wedding, and accepted our recommendations for down time music. But they didn't need much of it. As I noted, the band played throughout the night with few breaks and everyone at our wedding told us specifically how much they enjoyed the music. They were professional and we got everything we paid for and more. They even learned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song at my request.

    Lucky Penny was fantastic. Couldn't recommend more.
