Amazing music, lots of variety, best band!
For our wedding, our priorities were good food, flowing drinks, and music that would keep people on the dance floor throughout the reception. Sly 45 definitely delivered on keeping everyone singing and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG. Guests repeatedly told me they couldn't believe how great the music was! Sly 45 was also really flexible with us and gave us great advice when we weren't quite sure if our ideas would work. Sly 45 does this awesome thing where they offer to learn two songs chosen by the couple, and we picked two doozies (Africa by Toto and Country Roads by John Denver) that they absolutely nailed! From the variety of songs to the sound engineering to their professionalism, we couldn't have asked for a better band. Thanks Sly 45!Sent on 11/12/2018

Stop searching...Sly45 rocks!
Sly45 played our NYE wedding in Washington DC, and they rocked! We chose Sly45 based solely on their website a friend's recommendation...they did not disappoint. Andrew was a professional and a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. The band's engineer perfectly modulated the sound for our difficult venue. And when it came to the actual show (ceremony + reception)...they 100% nailed it. My only regret is that we didn't book them to play longer!

Sly 45 rocked it at our wedding!!! It's almost a week after our wedding, and people are still talking about it! Our engaged friends loved them so much, they called them the very next day to inquire booking them for their wedding. We utilized them for reception only - we did a 4.5 hour service with 5 band members (saxophone added). The sax was the best touch!! They brought their own lighting and did all the MC for the night. They were also very organized leading up to the wedding. Easily reachable via phone or email. They sent us a google doc timeline about a month before the wedding which included everything, from the introductions, to the first dance songs, to the preferred songs we wanted them to play. They will DJ any song you want, and if a song you really want is not on their song list already, you have the option of asking them to learn two new songs, which I thought was really neat. We absolutely loved the versions of the songs we asked them to learn. Even though we had 175 guests to say hello to, I never wanted to stop dancing, they were just that good! We are so happy we booked Sly 45 as our wedding band, something we will never forget!!Sent on 11/12/2018

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!
