Look no further! Hire On The Beat! We loved them!!

Where do we even begin?? We found On The Beat through online recommendations. We were initially very impressed with their website and the very high reviews we read from previous clients. Coming from a musical background and family, the one aspect of our wedding we needed to NAIL was the entertainment. We also had guests coming from all around the world to visit Southern California for the very first time, so we wanted to make their travel worth every penny. Our goal was to keep as many elderly friends and family (who would have otherwise gone home after dinner) on the dance floor until the band closed out the venue. During the search, we went back and forth with different bands and DJs for over three months, but for some reason in the back of our minds we just had a feeling that On The Beat would guarantee us the true quality we were looking for with the price we were willing to pay. A few weeks later after our initial virtual interview with Robert and Megan, we decided to make the decision to hire On The Beat. Suffice it to say, they met and absolutely exceeded expectations in all areas. The band was praised all night and talked about even 3 months later!

Robert and Megan made the planning process so easy for us. They laid out the contract for us early on to help us manage expectations for the big day. They also were SO flexible with our wishes. We had hoped to have a close family member play keyboard for the bridal processional. Robert and Megan made that happen without us having to worry about anything. The keyboard and sound was prepared and ready to go with an ample amount of time for my brother in-law to sound check and practice prior to the ceremony. They constantly made themselves available to us to answer any questions that we had throughout the planning process using their seamless client “one stop shop” website. They were also able to accommodate an additional trumpet player within a month of the wedding. One of the aspects that also made On The Beat stand out from its competitors was that they gave us a blank Spotify playlist to let us fill in whatever songs we liked. At the wedding, they performed at least 90% of the songs that we had requested. It was an absolute blast.

To those of you reading this review, look no further for your entertainment needs. Robert and Megan will take great care of you. If you want your wedding to be the greatest party you have ever hosted, HIRE THIS COMPANY!

We are trying to find every excuse to hire On the Beat again, so its highly possible that we might hire them again for our future child’s 1 year old birthday party! HAHA

Robert and Megan, thank you for making our wedding a day we will never forget for the rest of our lives. We appreciate the hard work that your team put on and we will never forget you all!

The Best Wedding Band EVER!

Groom & bride here: On The Beat Music Agency was fantastic! Rob and his team were fantastic to work with and incredibly professional. Honestly we wish all vendors could be as easy to work with and communicative and OTBMA and Rob were.

We had heard his band, The Mixtape play at our relatives' wedding and were so blown away we had to have them for ours. At the time, we and the other guests kept saying it was the best wedding band we had ever heard. Somehow, for our wedding, they took it to another level! They absolutely crushed it! The dance floor was never less than 75% full at all times! Even three months later we still have people coming up to us saying how amazing the wedding was and asking where we found that awesome band!

Additionally, Rob did an impeccable job emceeing the night. He had the perfect tone and was able to flow from one item to the next perfectly.

In summation, if you are looking for an awesome band to dance the night away to. Stop looking, you've found them already. Do yourself a favor and hire OTBMA immediately!

Stop looking now and hire Sir Duke

Holy smokes this is literally the best band! I have so much to say about them - all positive. The band themselves absolutely crushed it and kept the party going! The musicians were top notch and so much fun!

Also, the management of the band was exceptional. The week of our wedding we heard some surprising limitations from our venue and I sent an email to the band manager immediately. Within an hour, we were on a call brainstorming our options. The timeliness and their ability to pivot on such short notice was so impressive and we are so thankful for them.
