Amazing! 111

We LOVED the Pictures Band!!! They are so professional and easy to work with, sound INCREDIBLE (I think they can play any song!!!), and can get any crowd going!!! We got so many comments from guests on how great they were and how they felt like they were at a professional concert. They had everyone out on the dance floor. 100% would recommend!

Ultimate wedding band!

My daughter & son-in-law selected The Pictures Band for their wedding based on reviews. I had some apprehension having never heard them & not having any personal references since we're in Houston & they're in Austin. After meeting with them we began to get more comfortable, once they began playing all concerns were vaporized...they were great exceeding all expectations! They brought a very high level of energy to the reception all night long. We could not have been more pleased & can highly recommend them!

Best of the best!!!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Not only is their music phenomenal, but every band member is so kind and went above and beyond for our special day. They were truly the life of the party and the energy on the dance floor was amazing all night long. Cannot recommend enough!
