If you are trying to decide on the perfect band for your wedding, there is really no other decision to make but to hire The Benjamins! Music is one of the most important components of a wedding and I PROMISE that you AND your wedding guests will be extremely satisfied with your choice in having them as your band. Not only do they accommodate your song requests but they also incorporate songs they know from their professional experience playing at weddings which guarantee to fill the dance floor all night long. And that is exactly what they did at our wedding! Our dance floor was packed the entire night with guests of all ages, from my grandparents to my 18 month old flower girl who became one of the youngest Benjamins fans that night. Even my 89 year old grandfather, who had just recovered from foot surgery was out moving and shaking along to the band that night. They played a variety of music from songs you typically expect at wedding (Elvis, The Beatles, etc) to current radio hits, all with a unique "rock" type spin. It's as though you have a private concert at your wedding. We had so many guests coming up to us throughout the night raving about the music and asking us where they can see them play again. In fact, we were having so much fun out on the dance floor along with all our guests that we extended the wedding an hour to keep the music going. Our videographer even emailed us after the wedding to say that he has seen hundreds of wedding bands and to quote him "That was one kick ass wedding band, a total breath of fresh air from the Tommy and The Tone-deaf types we usually see!" It's now four months since our wedding and we are still hearing from guests that it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended because of the music. If you are looking for a memorable night of incredible live music and entertainment, DO NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER THAN THE BENJAMINS WHEN HIRING A BAND FOR YOUR WEDDING!! -Michele Vagge-Brenneck and Rob Brenneck

The Benjamins are the best!!!

The Benjamins absolutely rocked our wedding!!! They brought amazing energy that had the dance floor packed all night long, which is exactly what we wanted! We especially loved that they played lots of 90s-2000s pop punk songs that are our favorite, and they incorporated our requests! We would book them again in a heartbeat!

Incredible! Will 100% make your wedding!

The Benjamins were absolutely incredible and made our wedding! We had their pianist for the ceremony, solo acoustic guitar for cocktail hour and the complete 8 piece band with horn section for the reception. Highly recommend the horn section! The whole band absolutely rocked! They have a huge song selection and with both a male / female singer they can really diversify what they play. Our package also came with a DJ MC that did all the introductions and announcements which was awesome! During dinner they will have the DJ play a genre of whatever you want. There will seriously never be any dead air and if you hire these guys I promise you the dance floor will be bumping. Furthermore, they simply run a great business and are extremely professional. The point of contact, Joe, was extremely responsive and diligent. If you want to have a wedding to remember I highly suggest the Benjamins and if you can, definitely go with the complete 8 piece band. You'll get more than just a wedding band I promise. You can tell these guys / gals really care and want to make your big day special.
