Side One is one of the world's leaders in event entertainment having played almost 2000 events in 10 years for many Fortune 100 companies, high end events, and celebrity weddings at a price that won't break the bank. Side One Seattle is one of our 4 flagship teams (we also have bands in Vancouver BC, Calgary, and Toronto) and they without exception, make every event the best parts of our clients' day.
Side One offers solo performers all the way to a 12 piece dance band and everything in between for all of your musical needs on your special day plus full professional AV for all parts and locations of the event (and it won't be some cranky soundman wearing a Motley Crue Tour '82 shirt at your wedding at the Sunset Club). And musically, Side One is so diverse and can really offer so much range that our guests are usually left spellbound how a band can pull all of that material off.
There are also so many logistics involved in a wedding and the timeline ends up looking like the production schedule akin to the Oscars or Grammys and rest assured that our team is there help to you from the time of booking up to the event itself to make sure that you everything is executed flawlessly and that no detail is left out.
Whether it's a ceremony string quartet, acoustic duo for your cocktail hour, a Jewish Horah before dinner, an MC keeping your event flowing, a jazz quartet while you eat, or a dance band with a slamming horn section playing some the latest Lizzo or 90's throwback jams, Side One has got you.

Guests are still RAVING about this band!
Side One performed at our wedding in October 2019.Sent on 04/05/2020
They were nothing short of incredible throughout the entire booking, planning and live performance experience.
Our wedding guests are still raving about the band!! At some point or another, it honestly seems like every single guest (regardless of age) has commented on how awesome "Side One" band was.
If you have high standards, appreciate attention to detail, and are looking for an extremely talented band with impressive stage presence - you can't go wrong with Side One! You'll be in good hands!!

Side One was amazing!! We used Side One during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor all night and had an amazing time. They played a variety of hits that appealed to our wide range of wedding guests. Our wedding wouldn't have been as much fun without them!Sent on 09/29/2016

It's not even really a question of whether or not we'd recommend Side One for a wedding. We absolutely would but more than that, if we had friends even considering a band, we'd badger them relentlessly until they booked Side One. There are three things that I just thought they did incredibly well.Sent on 04/15/2016
1) The playlist. Absolutely perfect for us. I like indie, my wife loves hip-hop and our guests' tastes varied even more. The band put together an unbelievable playlist that really suited our group.
2) The performance. Wow. We thought that we might have thrown them a bit of a curve ball with a tricky first dance song and we're wondering if they'd be able to pull it off. They did. And it was perfect. But there were just so many great moments throughout the night that we never would have imagined like when the female singer (sorry- don't have your name) raps the verse in No Diggity. Amazing!
3) The energy. Our wedding wasn't a large one (about 80 people) and we were worried that we might not be able to keep the dance floor full. Not a problem at all. There wasn't a single song that felt phoned in or like the band was just going through the motions and I've never seen our friends dance like they did that night.
Thank you again so much. You were one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. We wouldn't have changed a single note.
