Could not have found a better band!

The Plaids were amazing at our daughter’s wedding. When we hired them, Doug immediately reached out and met with us to find out exactly what we wanted for the day. He was really interesting in creating the vibe that we wanted. The band’s interactive database allowed for easy communication about songs, announcing of the wedding party and any other relevant details. Skip ahead to the wedding day… When they struck the first chord, the dance floor was full, and it stayed that way until the last song! The variety of music they played was amazing: from AC/DC to the B-52s to Lizzo and everything in between! If you want a band to keep your guests dancing and make the day just perfect, call The Plaids. You will not be disappointed!

Get Ready to Party!

The Plaids ROCKED the house at our wedding in Winston Salem! They took our requests and ran with it and even learned our first dance song with some customizations. It was truly a party and had every one of our guests dancing. People are STILL raving about the performance to this day! We could not have imagined our wedding without them :)

Super Fun Band - Perfect Group!

We booked The Plaids to perform at our wedding in the Outer Banks in nearly November this year. They were AWESOME! From the beginning, Doug was so easy going and fun to talk to. We told them about bands/songs we liked, and they were able to put together an entire set list based on our tastes. They also prepared music for the dinner which was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed them so much! We had a couple of special requests, which they were totally accommodating towards. We had SO much fun because of them!!!!

We really cannot recommend them enough.... we will definitely book them in the future for parties and any other instances where we would need a band! Book these guys!
