About Royal Dukes Band

Winner of the Couples Choice Award 2015!

 

The Royal Dukes Band is the function and events band that is not just your stock-standard "Wedding Band"   With regular  showcase performances and a  free demo CD you can see and hear us live before booking, then pick and choose the size and configuration of your dream band. As full-time professional young musicians, we focus squarely on getting your night up and jumping, but without the cheese.     Best of all, we are self-managed, so they are much less expensive than other bands in this quality bracket – you are not paying any agents of middle-men!  Pricing from $1500 - $5200, depending on band size.    We can play all the classics and 70s, 80s, 90s etc, and all the latest stuff too – from Frank Sinatra and Chuck Berry to Black Keys and Beyonce– and everything in between. Although our band was built from the ground up to fill the dance floor, we are trained jazz musicians and are just as happy to play cocktail music, acoustic covers, and all of those tunes that work best at the beginning of the night, before the party has really fired up!  But when it is time to fill the dancefloor, this is when we really excel!  We pride ourselves on knowing exactly the right songs to play at just the right time to pack your dancefloor.  See our website for a  selection of some of the many tunes that we can play, plus  live recordings etc...    Our flexibility allows you to choose between 3 – 14 of our full time professional musicians who play with the likes of Alicia Keys, Prince, Gotye, Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, Beck & Tony Bennett, to name a few. At our  regular showcase viewing nights you can check us out in action, and see for yourself why our young band already has an enviable reputation in the industry.     We hope to see you there to experience our vibe, our energy and speak to us about how we can make your big day absolutely sensational!!

Royal Dukes was awesome! I was a little nervous at first when they said they don't take requests because they feed off of the vibe of the party, but this was not an issue at all! They were able to keep our guests dancing all night which is exactly what we wanted! We have received endless compliments on how AMAZING the band was at our wedding. They were also so organized and friendly throughout the whole process and day of. Our singer, Sam, came up to me at the end of the night and took a few minutes to speak with me and tell me that she enjoyed performing for us. I thought this was really sweet and it has stuck with me how personable she was. We used them for our ceremony music (acoustic guitar), cocktail hour (acoustic trio), and for the reception (7 piece band). It was so convenient that we could use them for all three parts of the night. An added bonus is that they were super affordable!

We couldn't have said "I DO" without "I DANCED ALL NIGHT TO THE ROYAL DUKES BAND!" Words aren't enough to express the sheer JOY and GRATITUDE we have for The Royal Dukes Band! We hired the 8 piece band for our wedding May 26, 2018 at Pecan Springs Ranch because you can't NOT have the horns section---they totally brought the house down! I saw the RDB perform at a showcase in Downtown Austin with one of my bridesmaids who is a musician. I knew she'd be a great person to bring because she would have honest feedback and help me choose the lead singer that best fit our wedding vibe and personalities. We both danced and laughed throughout the entire show! We honestly loved every showcased vocalist! We went with Sam (female lead) and Jordan (male lead). SO HAPPY WE DID! Their professionalism and perfected planning/execution process is both impressive and reassuring to a bride juggling so many planning details! For me, the overall wedding goal was to throw the party of a lifetime for myself and my groom, and if everyone else at the wedding enjoyed it too, great! WE THREW THE BEST PARTY AND THE ROYAL DUKES BAND MADE THAT ALL POSSIBLE! I don't even have an adjective to describe how much fun we had. Our guests will be talking about our wedding band forever!!!!!!!!!! To book the RDB is to guarantee your night will be a BLAST!
