Unbelievable!!!

When my husband and I started planning our wedding, we both agreed that the most important thing to us was having a band and great live music. We LOVE a good dance floor. Boy did Sam Hill and Young Hearts come through! I don't think words can describe how awesome Alyssa and Young Hearts were to work with and to have at our wedding! We had a blast working with Alyssa prior to the event and then the night of, WOW, just wow. I had guests coming up to me all throughout the evening in shock with how great they were and I had to agree with them! Now, a couple of weeks post-wedding, all we talk about as a family is as much fun that dance floor was! Thank you so much for making our night so awesome! Even the last 30 minutes when we opted for their DJ to wrap up the night was amazing! And Young Hearts' version of "Tennessee Whiskey" is the most amazing thing I've heard :)

Also planning a wedding during COVID was difficult, to say the least. Working with Andrew when we had to postpone our wedding a year made our lives so easy! Thank you again for everything Sam Hill and, most especially, Young Hearts!

The Adrian Duke Project

The Adrian Duke Project was amazing! From an operational standpoint, they got set up on time, played the songs we requested, and were good at MC'ing the intros. From a musical standpoint, we had very high hopes for the Adrian Duke Project and they over delivered! The dance floor was packed the entire night -- which was exactly what we wanted -- and musically they were phenomenal. Multiple people asked us where/how we found them and told us what a great job they did. They were absolutely the highlight of the reception.

What a night!

Sam Hill Entertainment provided our wedding band, Soul Expressions. They were incredible and made our wedding into the most amazing party. Our guests danced all night long and had an absolute blast. The band started off by learning two new songs that we requested! Then, they performed every song almost better than the original. Guests who say they never like to dance, got on the dance floor! The band members moved throughout the crowd and engaged with us and our guests throughout the night. I can't say enough about the quality of each member of the band and their professionalism and energy!
