About The DC Transit Band

The DC Transit Band is a 10 piece dance band featuring the fabulous vocals of Lindsay Diles and Josh Alfred embelished by a four piece horn section and anchored in a veteran rhythm section.

We play a wide variety of popular dance music and our repertoire is packed with frequently requested songs at weddings, dances, and corporate events.

We offer a high quality Jazz Quartet to entertain your guests during the cocktail hour. For your dinner, we can offer an excellent easy listening dinner set sure to please folks of all ages. And when it's time to dance, we can keep 'em on the floor for the remainder of the night!

We'll work with you to plan the entire reception program. From your grand entrance and announcement of the Bridal Party, we can tailor the entire reception to meet your needs. We'll work with you to select your First Dance, the Mother & Son Dance, the Father a& Daughter Dance, and the Last Dance. We have special songs for the Cake Cutting, the Garter Throw, and the Boquett Toss.

Formed on 9 January 2011, with the vision of becoming a Wedding / Corporate Events and Festivals Band. We rehearse in Mannas, VA and our members reside throughout Northern Virginia and Maryland. Most of our musicians are teachers and have degrees from prestigious schools. We pride ourselves on giving you our best so your wedding or event will be a great memory for the rest of your life.

Live music will make your event special. Selecting our band will be one of the easiest and best decisions you'll make.

    Easiest wedding decision there was

    If you are reading reviews - just stop. Go ahead and book DC Transit Band before someone else snatches them up.

    I first heard of DC Transit Band from a friend. She heard them at a wedding, and the next morning texted me to tell me that she found my wedding band. As soon as I got engaged,my fiance and I reached out and we couldn't be MORE thrilled with our decision. From the start, Cam and the group have been an absolute DELIGHT to work with. My husband and I went to listen to them one night at a bar and were blown away by their talent. When we finally got to chat with them during set-break, we were blown away by how nice and fun and all-around great they were.

    My husband and I procrastinated a little about our song-selection. Cam was so patient and professional and helped guide us through our check-list and gave us some great suggestions and guidance as we chose some special songs. He helped coordinate a string quartet for the ceremony who was incredible and nailed our songs (including a very special request song for my husband as he walked down the aisle).

    And at our party, Cam, Lindsey and the band were the best! They learned some songs for us (and on short-notice, much appreciated!!). They kept everyone on the dance floor and bouncing around. There wasn't a down moment, I just wish the party was longer so they could have kept playing. So, so many people throughout the evening kept coming up to us and complimenting the band.

    Music is such an important choice at a wedding and can make or break a party. DC Transit Band is the best choice you could make. Their voices were on point, the instruments were on point, their song selection was on point. They made our wedding into a beautiful live affair and we couldn't be happier with our decision. We hope we have another special event soon and get the chance to hire them again! Do yourself a favor and stop looking at anyone else, you WILL NOT find anything better.

    The best decision we made about out wedding was to hire DC Transit Band. They went above and beyond our expectations and I could not be more thankful. Everyone I spoke with at and after our wedding complemented the performance. It was a hot day for our wedding and they were still so high energy and fun! The music selection was perfect and we are just so happy about how everything went. They put together an amazing selection of fun music and kept the party going! Hiring DC Transit Band was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I will be forever grateful that they were a part of our special day!

    I'm a wedding planner, and I've worked with The DC Transit Band on two weddings now. Both times I've been blown away by their professionalism, flexibility, and commitment to making each wedding the very best it can be. The members of the band are all consummate musicians, and they bring incredible energy to their performances. The DC Transit Band isn't your typical "wedding band." They provide an awesome experience for you and your guests, and they're there to support their couples throughout the process of planning the entertainment portion of their wedding. They're my #1 choice when recommending live music to couples, and I can't wait to work with them again!
