Best Decision of the Evening!
Dear people planning events in the Austin area,Sent on 02/25/2019
Hiring the Sophisticates was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding reception! Dax and his crew were friendly, fun, accommodating, talented, and didn't mind when I took over the microphone for a couple of songs and started my own personal live band karaoke.
Beforehand, Dax and I spoke extensively about how the evening would progress and which songs we definitely wanted to hear and the band even learned a song for our first dance. As the bride, I didn't have to worry about the timing of anything or make sure my guests were having a good time. It was all handled by them.
We also paid just a little extra for the saxophone player and he was amazing and added so much to the songs. As a musician, I couldn't imagine just hiring a DJ. The band brings so much more than just a song. There is personality and performance!
You won't regret hiring them for your event :)

Great Band for our Great Wedding!!
The Sophisticates are the best band for the money in Austin for weddings or any occasion. We checked out several bands and all were good, but several had complicated or demanding contracts, or were very expensive. Dax took care of us in every way and made sure my bride had nothing to worry about during the wedding plans and at the reception. He was great as MC, and the music selection during the dinner and after was perfect. Everyone at the reception RAVED about the band!! Dax and his fellow band mates nailed all of the classic favorites. The dance floor was full the entire time. The Sophisticates was a great band for our great wedding!!Sent on 11/28/2018
