The most amazing and engaging band!!!

I cannot begin to put into words how amazing this band is. One of the few things we knew from the beginning of our wedding planning process was that if we could pull off a live band, that is what we wanted. We love to dance and our friends/family have always loved a good party. Matchmaker band did the most amazing job keeping everyone entertained and up and dancing all night!!

I dreaded the idea of music selection but they made it so simple with a list of loves and a list of avoids. This took so much stress off of us and they did such a great job picking songs that matched the vibe we told them we were going for and the songs that we provided on our "Love it" list. They also read the room perfectly and did a great job of matching the vibe of the moment.

Not only are they incredibly talented musicians, but they are very talented entertainers. The singers had matching dance moves and even came out onto the dance floor to interact with people and get everyone hyped up. The number one compliment we got after our wedding was how amazing our band was, and we have had multiple people ask for their information for future weddings/events. I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BOOK THIS BAND AGAIN. They are truly amazing and worth every penny you invest if you're looking to have great music for entertainment and dancing.

Matchmaker did everything to make this the most amazing day for us. first of all the sign up process is super streamlined and was easy to add on more products like a string trio. Next was the music selection which they give you a list and you pick 10 must plays and 10 do not plays, and they take that and run with it to create the perfect playlist. we also provided first dance, mother son and father daughter dances along with any other details we felt like including, like a special request for an intro song.
the day of was seamless and they came in and set everything up. our main hope was that everyone would be out on the dance floor by the end of the night and that was certainly the case with match maker playing. They started off the dinner set playing some great motown classics to ease into the night and with each set they started to play more and more songs to get people moving and shaking. Ultimately reaching a crescendo toward the end of the night with everyone screaming Backstreets back at the top of there lungs (the crowd was mostly 80's and 90's babies). they were so attentive, interactive with the crowd and really just knew what was needed for everyone to have a blast. Highlights: they pulled us up on stage(not planned) to sing one of our requested songs(you don't have to go up there if you don't want, but we were all about it), the soul train dance line that one of the singers initiated. Proud Mary being played where everyone was in a full on dance circle.
couldn't recommend them more!
