    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.

    The PERFECT wedding band

    Choosing a band for our wedding felt daunting to my husband and I! We had a list- 90s grunge for him, a few wedding dance tunes for my parents, and some really talented musicians to live up to our standard (as I am a music educator and many of our guests were professional musicians). The Benjamins checked every.single.box. No song request denied, from ceremony to the end of the night 90s mash up to wrap up the end of the party- what a FUN band! Since our wedding many people have gone to other events have said "they had a band, but it wasn't the Benjamins!"

    Book Them Now!

    The Benjamins were everything we wanted from a band and more. The ceremony and cocktail hour music was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The reception was absolutely amazing thanks to The Benjamins. They had everyone constantly on the dance floor and made the party unforgettable. We had so many guests both during and after the wedding raving about how good the band was. I would HIGHLY recommend The Benjamins to anyone looking to hire a band for their wedding.
