    Special Edition is the best of the best!!

    To put it simply, we cannot get over how FANTASTIC The Special Edition Band was at our wedding this past Friday. Our guests have not stopped raving about how great the music was and how much fun the band was!! John and the band did ensemble jazz music during the dinner hour, and then switched to party music afterwards. To say they sounded amazing just doesn't seem like enough! Despite very little guidance on musical selections from us, the band read the room like pros and played music that kept people on the dance floor the entire night! When I went up and spontaneously asked one of the band members if they could play a slow song, the band effortlessly glided into one and got every couple in the room out on the floor. When the song was over, they seized the opportunity presented by a crowded dance floor and broke out into the conga! SO much fun!! Around 10:30, John had my coordinator tell me to just give the signal when we were ready for the last song, with stern instruction that there was no rush... and when I did give the signal, the band glided into "Don't Stop Believing" so smoothly I was astounded. The best part though, was when the horns followed my husband and I out for our send off playing "When the Saints Go Marching In." My family is Cajun and I had always dreamed of a wedding in the French Quarter growing up... and somehow the band made it feel like I got that moment!! It was incredibly special. If you're looking for a wedding band who sounds phenomenal, responds to all communications promptly, and who is reasonably priced, look no further than Special Edition. John and his group is simply the best of the best. We would hire them a thousand times over!!

    Great band that keeps the crowd out on the dance floor!

    The Special Edition Band was professional through the entire event planning process and so easy to work with! John Adams, with the band, was always very responsive to our emails and helped us narrow down music selections.

    We had a fantastic wedding reception, and the band was a big part of the night. Our guests were dancing the entire time, and we had many compliments from guests on the band and how interactive they were and their ability to get the crowd going! Thanks for a great night! I would highly recommend to others looking for live music in the DFW area.

    Thank you so much for placing this review for us, and for taking time to write it. We loved serving you all, and helping make the event a grand celebration! You have our very wishes and regards. John Adams The Special Edition Band
