Book Them ASAP!

We found Restless Carolina through Instagram after what felt like months of looking...and we immediately knew we had to book them. We are SO glad we did. They were incredible! They are all very talented, their song lists are very diverse and modern (hello, Olivia Rodrigo and Beyonce!), and they were very kind and easy to work with. All night and weeks after, people kept telling us how they were the best wedding band they've ever seen. They kept the party going and I'm just so glad we found them because they really made our night special.

The best wedding band!!

This band knows what they are doing!!! They are so beyond talented, Brian and Jessie have the most amazing voices and sing just about anything and the vast array of musical instruments the members play makes it all come together so perfectly. Having seen them play at other events it was a very easy choice as to who we wanted to play at our wedding and we couldn't have enjoyed it more :)

Best wedding band ever

When I say they are the best wending band ever I'm not exaggerating. They went above and beyond to help us in every aspect of our wedding ceremony and reception. Everyone who we spoke to about the wedding told us how much fun they had and not a single person didn't mention the band as being amazing. Wish we could do it all over again and hire them again!
