From planning to our wedding night, The DC Transit Band was everything I could have asked for!

To start, just book them!! From the start of our planning experience through our wedding night, The DC Transit Band was phenomenal! Cam (the Band Manager) was so personable and professional, and always made himself available to answer any questions I had. He came prepared to every call we had and was always willing to offer his professional advice, which I needed and very much appreciated. During our wedding EVERYONE raved about how talented and fun they were. The dance floor was NEVER empty for three straight hours. My husband and I cannot thank them enough for being everything we could have wished for. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Wonderful experience

Cam and the band accommodated every wish. They learned 4 new songs (including one that would be sung in Korean by the bride’s parents) and didn’t bat an eye. They were flexible throughout the evening and followed our every wish, even making changes to the schedule on the fly when things didn’t go quite as planned. The value for the experience was phenomenal, and we couldn’t be happier with the band’s professionalism and skill. They really helped set the tone for the evening.

Cam was responsive and communicative throughout the planning process and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Very easy to work with, and a gentleman.

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!
