    Absolutely blown away.

    The Cool Rulers were absolutely incredible and we are SO happy we found them!!! We had a number of musicians at our wedding and quite a few older family members who generally don't dance. By the end of the night there wasn't a SINGLE guest who hadn't danced or made a comment to us about how fantastic the band was!! For weeks after the wedding, guests have been reaching out to us and telling us what an amazing time they had, thanks to the fantastic music. The Cool Rulers were the best band we could have hoped for and were super easy and friendly to work with. They were flexible and helpful and we would recommend them to anyone and everyone!! They MADE the party. Thank you, Cool Rulers!!

    Highly recommend

    My wife and I highly recommend The Cool Rulers for your wedding. Our dance floor was brimming from start to finish and our friends and guests are still raving about the band (as are we). They are a seriously talented group of musicians with a versatile playlist and the ability to read the room perfectly.

    They were accommodating with our song requests and even helped us play music through their speakers before the ceremony and during breaks.

    Our experience with the booking aspect was also great. Charles and Aaron are responsive, helpful and professional.

    We’re so grateful for the memory The Cool Rulers gave us!
