    AMAZING wedding band

    Though we were married in Indianapolis, we live out of state, and so we booked The Band Etc. and Encore Entertainment for our wedding sight unseen. I am SO glad that we did, because they were incredible. Darren and Larry were friendly and easy to communicate with. They were able to accommodate all our requests, even learning a few songs for our ceremony and reception. And the performance--wow! The piano for our processional was so moving, the jazz standards set the tone for the cocktail hour, and the band killed it during the reception. The dance floor was packed all night and multiple guests said it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. The live flute solo during Toto's "Africa" blew everyone away. Definitely hire them for your next event--you won't be disappointed!

    Book this band without any concerns

    Band was excellent on so many levels. They were professional and easy to work with and help us with ceremony and dinner music as well as providing sound for officiant and readers during ceremony. Very strong musicians and vocalists and they have a solid songbook for many tastes. If you use the Band Etc., you won't be sorry.

    The Band Etc.'s reply:

    Vernon,
    Thanks so much for that review. You and yours were also great to work with.

    Amazing 10/10

    The Band Etc was absolutely amazing. They were professional, on time, and cared about all the small details. They sounded fantastic and our guests continue to rave about how great they were. They read the room and kept people on the dance floor. The band was a non-negotiable for my now husband and am so happy we had The Band Etc. Would highly recommend you have them on your big day, you won't be disappointed!
