    Look No Further They are the BEST

    If you are questioning what band to hire, look no further! This is the BEST wedding, or bar or bat mitzvah band I have ever heard. No one was sitting and I cannot count how many people came up to me and told me this was the best band they ever heard at a wedding or big event. They learned Tupelo Honey for my husband to dance with his daughter and they played Havan Nagilla for a hora and chair dance. They worked around a timing mess up by the caterer. I was worried and went to Byron and apologized and he held my hands and looked into my eyes and said, "Do not worry, we are here for you" and the rest was history! When I say I have heard great bands, I am talking about 12 piece bands in NYC and Philly and this Austin band knocked their socks off! Like I said, look no further. A band of this quality makes the party really great! My daughter, the bride, and the groom wanted a DJ and I had to convince them, and after this party, they said that was the best decision. Even though the bride heard them before, she also said they exceeded her expectations!

    The Pictures Band's reply:

    I literally have tears in my eyes reading this. It means the world to me to make your reception the best ever and it looks like it happened!!!! We worked on this for about a yr and it feels like we became good friends along the way. Hopefully, things can go smoothly and it is so easy and fun. Things often can change in the course of the evening tho and our experience really helps us to adjust and stay on course to make it a success for you and your guests. The band prides itself on handling most anything and we all enjoy a successful result, so everyone is happy! We enjoy doing the horas at Jewish weddings because there is such joy that crescendos w the momentum creating such fun and wonderful memories! We are often asked the difference in a DJ or our band and the answer is always the interactive entertaining energy that is just not quite the same otherwise :) The horns/singers all have such fun going out into the crowd/dance floor and interacting with everyone so they all enjoy the evening! Thank You Vivian again for having us! I really enjoyed getting to know you and Simone along the way!!!! Gratefully- Byron and THE PICTURES BAND
