They know what they are doing and EVERYBODY EVERYBODY DANCED AND LOVED THEM!!! Hoping for another opportunity to see them again soon!!!

Carmine Band is the best!

Carmine was amazing. He really helped run the whole night and worked with the venue for making things run smoothly even though he had never been there before. He introduced speaches, got out in the crowd and even played rquests we thought might be too "odd" for most bands.

Our processional was the song "Concerning Hobbits" from the Lord of the Rings movie and it was beautifully played on the keyboard in the greenhouse we were married in. He also was happy to play the "Cantina Song" from Star Wars for our recessional which other bands might have scoffed at. He even had one of the band members bring an alto sax for this special request of ours.

After that they played at cocktail hour and the reception with classic party and wedding music that everyone enjoyed. "The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne was our first dance and it was PERFECT with the horn section. They really controlled their sound and volume well and we didn't feel like we were being blasted out by the music like we have felt at other weddings we've attended even though it was a full 8 piece band.

I can not sing their praises enough. You should hire The Carmine Band!

Love the Carmine Band!

We hired the Carmine Band for our June wedding at Ocean Gateway. We asked Carmine to help with our ceremony, as well as play during the cocktail hour and reception. We could have never pulled off the ceremony without the help of Carmine and the band. They took care of all of the music and mics and were right on cue. Having a few members of the band play during the cocktail hour made it feel so fancy and fun! Of course, they played great music for the reception that we and our guests danced the night away to.

Carmine and his band are willing learn a few songs at your request. We picked Mango Tree by Zac Brown Band for our first dance and they nailed it. Carmine and his band are thoughtful, kind and personable and we are so grateful for all of their help. We highly recommend considering Carmine Band for your wedding!
