    The absolute best!

    Port City Shakedown brought the house down at our wedding reception and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! They are so talented and were fun and personable with our guests too. We booked their ceremony + reception package and have no regrets!! Everything was super easy throughout the planning process and went perfectly on the day of! Our guests are still raving about how great Port City Shakedown was and they were truly one of the favorite parts of our entire wedding!! We could not recommend them more!

    Best Time Ever!

    Port City Shakedown definitely made our reception the blast that it was, and they were such a pleasure to work with. They were extremely organized and made the planning and choosing of the set list so easy. I don't think our guests left the dance floor all night! They were even kind enough to let a friend of ours come up to perform a song. It was such a memorable surprise! Truly had the time of our lives, and would absolutely recommend!!!

    Get your party started!

    We could not have asked for a better band to celebrate with at our wedding. The party started and ended with them- what great energy! Our guests loved their song choices and sang & danced the night away. The Port City Shakedown exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to find another reason to work with them again.
