    Just amazing

    Ryan and his band were by far, the best vendor decision we made for our wedding. We spent weeks looking for the right band for our wedding and we nailed it by hiring these guys. They performed for 6 hours between our welcome drink, ceremony, happy hour and reception. The sound quality was awesome. The songs they chose were so “us”. They totally killed it with learning some new songs for us too. Their rendition of Nathaniel Rateliff’s “S.O.B.” was spot on and our friends/family are still talking about it. We had numerous people tell us it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended and Ryan & band are a big big reason why.

    Best night of my Life

    All I can say is, Thank You! I had my wedding this weekend and you all played your hearts out. Hands down the highlight of my night was hearing your amazing renditions of our favorite songs. Your band was professional, early to set up, communicative and friendly with us and our guests. But most importantly you sounded amazing! Ryan Tennis, your band mates exceeded my expectations in talent and friendliness. Your keyboardist was phenomenal, I am partial to the piano and could not believe how well you all captured the complexities of both Grateful Dead tunes as well as Railroad Earth! You even surprised me by playing a special song for me and my dad (over the rainbow/wonderful world) that if it was extra work to learn was not necessary but was truly appreciated. I am forever grateful for you all being a part of our special night! You all received high praises from the guests and the venue staff owner. Many guests commented that they had never had so much fun at a wedding :-)

    Ok this is a MUST if you want your day to be the BEST ever and your guest to nonstop brag days/weeks/months/ years later. It’s the perfect touch. EVERY SINGLE GUEST RAVED!!!!!! Multiple people came to me, texted me days after still telling me how awesome the drinks were, etc. Like if that doesn’t tell you something idk what will. Aaron was AWESOME!!!!!. Soooooo easy to work with. All my emails were answered right away. Made every single step STRESS FREE!!!! Instantly made us laugh and feel like we made the absolute right choice at our tasting. He was easily one of my FAVORITE parts. The drinks… ohhhhh myyyy godddd. Amazing. Like I still don’t know how he does it. The tonic was incredible - drinks on tap to dieeeeeeeee for. We did cocktails and tonic on tap then a full bar – liquor beers champ wine etc - The bar, presentation, every detail.. 5 stars. I felt like the coolest host with him there. I really feel like guests come to weddings for the open bar/cocktails/drinks… trust meeeeee -- this is the WAY to go.. Seriously… you will regret not doing this. Aaron thank you so much for everything on 11.25.17 - you were amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like I can’t give you enough compliments. Your great - Thank youuuu! <3 Tara & Rob
