They are the best you could possibly get!
If you're looking for your wedding or special event band-- you can stop looking. This is it! Joe and the Walk-Ins were absolutely amazing during our wedding in August. They were so lively, entertaining and kept the party going from start to finish! I got SO many compliments on them all night and long after the wedding!! They really know how to throw a party.. and for an amazing price too! I stopped Joe multiple times throughout the night to have him make announcements for me and he made it so seamless and natural. He was also a wonderful MC for the toasts and announcements. We truly couldn't have chosen a better band. Everyone loved them!Sent on 10/06/2019

Exceeded All Expectations
I was a little nervous about hiring a band over a DJ because I’ve seen some so-so bands at weddings in the past. The Walk Ins were amazing! Joe was especially great as an MC helping keep everything on track and flowing well, which took a lot of stress off myself and the bride to just enjoy the night. All of our guests raved about the band afterward. They did a great job mingling with the dance floor and guests to get them involved. I have never seen such a packed dance floor all night. Best of all they are very reasonably priced. I would personally recommend adding the horn section as well. If you have room in the budget, well worth upgrading over a standard DJ service.Sent on 12/29/2019

High energy, fun, interactive band
The Walk-Ins made my wedding truly incredible! Joe is not only talented, but he really knows how to start and keep a party moving. He interacted, sang, and danced with all our guests (even those who could not get out of their seats) and made sure everyone was having fun - and they did! Countless people came up to me that night or thereafter (even friends who don't live in IL) and said they were the best band they heard at a wedding and asked for their contact info for their NYC weddings!
He also adapted to our traditions by playing southside Italian music, invited my husband to play with them (he plays the piano), and of course passed the mic around to anyone who wanted to sing a tune (including me :). I cannot say enough good things about Joe and the Walk-Ins; you won't regret hiring them!!Sent on 10/13/2019
