an absolute must!

We had the Joel Young Band at our 10/14/23 wedding, and they were an absolute HIT! We got compliments on them all night long. I'd booked them after my sister did for her 2022 wedding, where they were also a huge success. Super easy to communicate with during the planning process, and they absolutely brought the fun day-of. They even learned a song in Italian for us because we had family flying in from Italy! Our dance floor was packed truly all night long, every song, every genre, every decade of music, didn't matter! People, myself included, really enjoyed when members of the band came out to the floor, especially during the Piano Man sing-a-long! Absolutely a 10/10 must-book vendor - you won't be disappointed!

The Best Night Ever With The Best Band Ever!

The Joel Young Band (JYB) was by far one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding! My husband had seen them perform at his sister’s wedding about 6 years ago and he knew he wanted them to be part of our day! We reached out to Joel about 11 months before our wedding on 11.25.22 and we were thrilled when we learned they were available! Three weeks before our wedding, my husband and I had a phone call with Joel to go over our timeline for the reception, and talk about song selections for our first dance and parent dances, as well as entrance songs and a song for cake cutting! When we shared our choice for our first dance and asked Joel if they knew it, he replied “No but we will learn it!”. Fast forward to our reception, and JYB absolutely knocked their rendition of our first dance out of the park. It was truly such a beautiful moment and it was made by their amazing talent both instrumentally and vocally! The whole night was incredible. They truly kept the party going all night long, playing everything from current hits to classics that had everyone moving and out of their seats! Their talent is evident in every song they play! All night, our guests were coming up to us saying “amazing band” “they are so great” “where did you find them?”, clearly we had made a great choice! Throughout the planning process and the night of Joel was communicative, fun, professional, and easy to work with! I truly cannot begin to thank JYB for making our reception so incredibly fun and special. We have memories that will last us a lifetime and we are so grateful to them for being part of our big day! We want to do it all over again just to have that epic party! Lots of love, Mary & Jonathan G.
