    Better then I could have hoped for

    Hiring the Jon Bates band was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day. Jon and the rest of the band put SO much love and heart into each and every song. They kept our guests dancing all night long. Jon met with us before the big day to make sure that they would give us everything we wanted. They did that and More. We even asked for them to learn a few special songs and again. They were quick to make sure that they knew every song we wanted played. The best thing was that we asked Jon and the band to learn a special edited version of a song for my Father / Daughter dance. They did an INCREDIBLE job. The way they made the song their own made that moment even more special for us. If you are looking for a wedding band that will do more then just, Play the music. Then you have found them.

    Jon Bates brought my wedding to the next level

    Jon Bates Band are a blast, they were professional, on time, great performers, and did a great job turning my wedding into a dance party for the whole night. I gave them songs to learn and they nailed it all with a fluid performance that kept people dancing and having a good time. Anyone getting married in the Tri-State area, get this band!
