    The best! Highly recommend

    Absolutely the best! Professional, talented, and so incredibly fun. An excellent band really does make the party, and I am so glad we went with the Ward Eights for our big day. My dad, who played used to play in a wedding band back in the 70s and 80s, described the Ward Eights as "masterful, superbly professional, organized, excellent judgment, well played". The band's song list covers so many different genres and it left all our guests blown away. Many of them said the Ward Eights were the best wedding band they had ever seen. Dave is super responsive, easy to communicate with, and very thorough. We were in great hands and I would recommend the Ward Eights 1000%.

    Rocked the House!

    The Ward Eights were truly spectacular and everything we could ask for in a wedding band. Professional, helpful in making sure we thought of everything for the big day, and most importantly - put on an amazing performance! So many guests came up to us afterwards and told us they were the best band they’ve seen at a wedding. They managed to get nearly everyone on the dance floor.

    We are so happy we picked them for our special day. They made sure the entire reception went perfectly from cocktail hour to send off. Can’t recommend enough!

    We always tell our staff that we are as good as our vendors. I truly believe we are all responsible for making a couple, family and friends have the best time of their lives. The Ward Eight did not disappoint. We LOVED working with them. Not only are they incredibly talented with two lead singers, male and female, (AWESOME) they are as equally professional and a blast to work with. Being a venue owner, many times we have to ask the band to make announcements which are never very exciting. Dave the lead singer cracked me up, he always made them fun! When a band can make my job easier it's a good night! I would love to have them back to Bishop Farm any time. They are a perfect fit for our venue.
