I cannot say enough amazing things about The Ward Eights! We actually found them at a friends wedding in Rockport, MA and found that their music was so absolutely unbelievable that we took their business card right after the reception. They were the reason why we decided to not have destination wedding. We worked with Dave to coordinate all the details. He was incredibly responsive and very accomodating. We asked them to learn My Type by Saint Motel, they could not have done a better job. It was beyond perfect, they totally crushed it!! They had everyone dancing the whole night, even guests that said they don't dance. They are such a fun, upbeat, incredibly talented and down-to-earth group of musicians. All of our guests were raving about how awesome the band was, they made our wedding! They completely fulfilled and exceeded our expectations!! I highly recommend The Ward Eights to anyone looking!

Nothing but overwhelmingly positive things to say about The Ward Eights! First of all, quality is top notch - they are insanely talented and play so well together. It was clear that this was not their first rodeo and they are incredibly professional while still being really fun and personable (not at all show-boaty, which was a HUGE turn off when we were trying to select a wedding band). They have a great selection of songs that is diverse and appealed to both my husband and me who have very different musical preferences. They do offer the option to learn 2 new songs, which we actually didn't even do because we were really satisfied with their offerings. All I wanted for my reception was to be on that dance floor from start to finish and they made that very easy. They really read the vibe of the room and made great songs selections, in addition to our 5 must-play songs. Not exaggerating when I say that every guest I spoke to commented on how awesome they were, many saying they were the best wedding band they've seen. They were also really flexible and accommodating - we had a traditional Armenian dance that we wanted to do and they made sure the song was queued up and ready to go during one of the breaks. Lastly, also just super easy to work with -- friendly, easy going, professional, responsive.. If a wedding band is a top priority for you, as it was for us, you really can't go wrong with these guys! They made the night!

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.
