Life of the party!

Before any other decision we made about our wedding, we knew we wanted a live band, and The Bishops were exactly what we hoped for. They kept the party going after dinner and got just about every guest out on the dance floor. Bryan was a delight to work with on both the business and creative sides. He happily took requests for the setlist no matter how vague or specific and there's nothing we would've wanted different.

On top of being a pleasure to work with, these are some talented musicians! The multiple vocalists made for a truly dynamic night of music, and we were so glad we added the trumpet and sax too.

Your search for a band is over. Hire The Bishops!

Hire The Bishops, your guests will thank you!

The Bishops were the heart and soul of our wedding! Their incredible music and captivating performance had everyone on their feet, creating an unforgettable atmosphere of joy and celebration. Bryan, the band leader, was an absolute superstar. Not only did he lead the band with professionalism, but he also took on the roles of MC, ensuring the smooth flow of events, and handled the sound for the ceremony and cocktail hour flawlessly. His easy communication style and attention to detail ensured that every aspect of the day was a success. We were impressed by and so appreciated their willingness to learn and perform a song for us. Despite not having the chance to see them live beforehand, we were confident in our decision and thrilled with the outcome – their music sounded great and added an extra layer of magic to our special day. The Bishops went above and beyond, exceeding all expectations and making our wedding a night to remember!

Bishops were awesome - high recommends

The Bishops were hands down the first and best decision I made when planning our wedding. You won’t be disappointed! Bryan is super easy to work with and very transparent about what he can do. Everyone had a super great time and after the wedding was over …there was not a guest that didn’t comment on how great the band was the next day. Bryan will make a rock star out of everyone involved! Hiring the Bishops transformed a basic event into the event of the year and an event people will recall for decades to come!
