    Best ever!

    We saw the Jon Bates Band perform at our friends' wedding in Vermont a number of years ago. My now-husband and I knew (before we were even engaged!) that we wanted these guys to play our wedding, should we get to that point together. Fortunately, they travel all over and were happy to come to Delaware for our 10/5/2019 wedding.

    Communication was smooth throughout the entire process, and they were completely open to working with us on our song list and catering to what we really love most. Their rendition of our first dance song was spot-on to what we hoped it would be.

    They played a consistently strong set all night and had everyone - and I mean everyone! - up and dancing. I can honestly say that it could not have gone better, nor could we have enjoyed it more.

    I highly recommend this group of talented musicians.

    Incredible band, everyone loved them

    Incredibly talented, wonderful band! Everyone agreed they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. We only had 46 guests and they were fantastic, getting every single person dancing and singing along, sure they would be just as amazing with hundreds of guests - we felt so lucky to have them as a huge part of our big day. Also so lovely to work with, and played every one of our requests! Thank you!

    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.
