This band is incredible! It cannot be emphasized enough, as you will read with other reviews, this band MAKES the party. They are highly professional and trained musicians, and at the same time they know how to get down and have a great time! Their enthusiasm was infectious and had everyone on the dance floor all night, which is just what I was hoping for! We didn’t get to see them live before hiring them like many other reviewers, but the videos on their website are helpful and speaking with Mary, the band’s leader instilled a level of confidence that they can handle just about anything! Seriously the videos on their website don’t do it justice, they ROCKED the house. They put together a perfect mix of classic and new songs that everyone loved. SO many of my guests were coming up to us throughout the night saying “WHERE did you find this band??!!!” We also heard from a lot of people that it was the best wedding they’ve been to in awhile or EVER which is pretty much the coolest thing you can hear on your wedding night. We had guests of all ages and everyone enjoyed themselves, which I know had everything to do with Rare Blend. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Mary and Rare Blend, you helped make our wedding the party we were hoping for!Sent on 07/22/2016

Rare Blend is single handedly responsible for the amazing time I had at my wedding. A lot of things went wrong for us that day--our venue was outdoors and not properly heated, guests were freezing, we had 2 power outages, event staff were disorganized and clueless and I was frantic and concerned and not having a good time UNTIL Rare Blend took the stage. They turned it all around. Mary and her band were PROS. They played through a 5 min. power outage with an incredible drum solo, the guitarist had an amazing moment soloing and rocking out with my husband (who was on air guitar haha), the lead vocalist brought down the house SEVERAL TIMES. Every single guest danced at least once, many of us choosing to be out on the dance floor the entire night. And I truly appreciated that they brought their own photographer. It was so cold that I had a sweater on for much of my wedding. The only time my dress was visible was when I was dancing, so I can not WAIT to see photos taken on the dance floor. All of our favorite moments happened there. I had SO many guests tell me it was the best wedding they've ever been to--in a cold tent no less! We are so indebted to Rare Blend for giving us the wedding we hoped we would have. Not to mention the fact that when you hire them Mary will walk you through the entire day so even if event staff fall short and you have no wedding planner she's got you covered. AMAZING EXPERIENCE with this band!Sent on 10/05/2015

Rare Blend was the absolute best choice of our wedding! Mary worked with me in the months leading up to the big day in order to ensure that the night was going to go exactly as I pictured. We worked out the timeline, song choices, and she even worked with the reception venue to make sure everyone was on the same page.Sent on 10/20/2015
On the day of my mind was so much more preoccupied than I'd have ever imagined, and I don't know how anything would have gotten started/done without Mary. She organized the wedding party entrance, got the toasts going, told the venue we were ready to start cake cutting, and so much more. I would say Mary alone is a great asset on your wedding day!
But onto the music which is what's really important. I'll start by saying I have never seen a dance floor more full at a wedding. There was never a time throughout the evening that the whole floor wasn't crowded. Even when the band took their breaks, the prerecorded song choices kept everyone on the floor. They played every type of music that we could want, and they played it better than I could have imagined! The majority of our wedding guests were 40+ so we wanted music they'd like, but we also wanted music our friends in their 20s would like. It seemed like no matter what song was being played everyone loved it.There were new pop songs that Rare Blend played that I know many of our older guests wouldn't have danced to if it was just a DJ, but having this caliber of a band just created an energy that made everyone want to stay out there!
It has been over a month since our wedding and my husband and I, and our parents, still get comments daily from our guests that they've never had so much fun at a wedding. Countless people have said to us that they NEVER dance at weddings, but they were dancing the whole night!
So take it from me, the person who really didn't care to have a band, that Rare Blend is a must have! They made the wedding into a day that will be unforgettable for everyone, not just us.
This talented group keeps people on the dance floor. Friendly, professional with an extensive reperetoire. We love photographing receptions when they are playing!
