    We had The Essentials perform for my son and daughter in law's wedding two years ago and then very recently for a large outdoor Block Party. On both occasions The Essentials more than delivered!! They were GREAT!!! Everyone loved their performance and had a fantastic time dancing to their tunes.

    If you want great music from an entertaining and talented band that makes people want to dance and party, then BTE:
    Book The Essentials!

    Our guests raved about our wedding band. More than one person said it was the best wedding band they had ever heard. People were dancing all night, and we also had a second line after the ceremony that got everyone right in the spirit of things. Thomas was super-easy to work with, and the band sounds incredible. I love their song list––you will not miss the cheesy top 40 hits you get bad covers of at most weddings... instead, you get Motown hits that transcend all ages.

    I hope this band keeps their price as reasonable as it is now. They are a bargain and didn't blow our budget, which only made us appreciate their talent that much more.

    These guys were AWESOME! 60s Soul with all the greatest hits. They learned the Hava Nagila and rocked it!
    Guests reported that ours was the best dancing wedding they'd ever been to. Thank you, Essentials!
