    They Did Not Disappoint!

    My husband was adamant from the start of wedding planning that we had to have a live band at our wedding. I did a lot of research online and when I came across the Cool Rulers and listened to their music...I was sold. There was nobody else that compared to them. It also took 0 convincing for my husband to be on board. He loved them. Charles was very easy to work with and so kind. He listened to some of the ideas we had for music for the day of the wedding and even threw out some really great suggestions that we hadn't even considered. The Cool Rulers played acoustic guitar at our ceremony, jazz at our cocktail hour and then we had the full band for the wedding reception. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE!!! They blew us away. Not only do they all have great personalities...the instrument solos, the women hitting those high notes, walking into the crowd singing to our guests...our friends and family went nuts over it. They were so fun and to this day whenever our wedding gets brought up everyone talks about the Cool Rulers being the best band they have ever heard at a wedding. I only wish we could throw a party all the time and have them play for us! I would 100% recommend them.

    Get ready to have the "best wedding ever"

    All I can say is - WOW! These guys are the real deal. My husband and I are both musicians, so we wanted an epic band for our wedding. The Cool Rulers are exactly that. Their talent and professionalism is through the roof. You seriously won't find a better wedding band than this crew. Also, their song repertoire is FULL of fan favorites, so get ready, because you'll have to drag your guests off the dance floor.

    Thanks for an amazing night. You made our wedding a dream come true!
