If you want to have fun at your wedding, hire Sly45
Just do yourself a favor and hire Sly45. They're worth every penny. The band kept people on the dance floor all night long. I'd describe Sly45 as fun, friendly, cool, and professional. Andrew is an incredible MC that kept the whole wedding flowing, and worked with all of our vendors to make everything come together. We had so many people compliment the band and how talented they were, and everyone noticed how the dance floor was packed the entire night. We (Bride and Groom) got up on stage with the band, which made for some epic pictures. ALSO, Wylie and Andrew and the team learned an epic version of Toto by Africa as our last song, and made it a party to remember.
We also had them DJ our ceremony and do all of the sound acoustics. We were right by the water with wind and noisy sea gulls, and the sound tech figured out how to make it sound perfect. You could hear our officiant crystal clear.
I can't say enough about Sly45! Andrew, Wylie, and the team was fun to worth with, and extremely talented, which made for the best night of our lives. Thank you, Sly45!

Sly45 is a definite recommend
We asked this group for help with supporting a COVID-19 nonprofit and they absolutely crushed it. What impressed me more than their deep musical talent and production value, was their enthusiasm and ambition to support the cause. Book Sly45 for your event.Sent on 01/26/2021

best live band team
We really enjoy the time working with SYL 45. They are the live band and can play the songs that you want to play. They are creative and interested person. They can put you and your friends' names into the songs. During the COVID 19, we delay our wedding date. The make a music video for us on our original wedding date. They are really sweet and warmth. We recommend this live band as your choice.Sent on 11/30/2020

Team of SLY 45
As a native of Rockville Maryland, Andrew eventually become an art major with a focus in Ceramics at Wittenberg University – Springfield, OH. While his pottery studio in Fells Point is alive and well, music performance and matching clients with talented artists take up the majority of his work life. Passionate about always attempting to improve in all aspects of life, his time off includes practicing drums and snowboarding trips out West to Colorado and abroad. “Do what you love, and you will never feel like you worked a day in your life.”
After an obsession with playing live music completely took over his life Wylie headed to UMBC to gain a degree in music with an emphasis in jazz guitar performance. While he had some success writing music for documentary cable tv shows he found his true calling when he teamed up with Andrew and Lee to pack the dance floor at weddings and other large events. When he’s not onstage Wylie enjoys cooking Asian and Italian cuisine, adventuring outside his comfort zone both locally and abroad, meditation, shameless dancing, humble self-improvement books, and running games of Dungeons & Dragons with friends
In my mind there is no question for entertainment but to hire SLY 45 or a band under the Watershed Entertainment umbrella. Each musician is extremely talented and knows exactly how to get the party rocking from the first cord. I have never been to a SLY 45 event or gig where the dance-floor was not overflowing! Working with Andrew & the Watershed Entertainment team is always such a pleasure and I cannot wait for the next event where we can dance the night away together again!
