About Top Tier

Top Tier is a top-notch, award-winning wedding band based in Nashville, TN that services the entire state of Tennessee, Kentucky, and anywhere else within a 500 mile radius. Top Tier is the best of both worlds - a fun, high-energy party band and a smooth, light jazz band all in one. Since forming in 2009, they receive the Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Award annually along with The Knot's Best of Weddings Award. They have 5 lead vocalists to offer a diverse repertoire of over eight decade's worth of the greatest hits from a wide-range of music genres, including classic rock, oldies, Motown, R&B, pop, jazz, country, and top 40. Top Tier can be hired as a 5-piece, 6-piece (with sax), or 8-piece band (with 3-piece horn section). We also have Top Tier DJ service for events without the budget or space for a band.

Top Tier's band members have shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, such as Rick Springfield, The Cars, Craig Morgan, Tiffany, Phil Vassar, Ambrosia, and John Ford Coley. Collectively they have performed everywhere from casinos to arenas to headlining major outdoor concerts. Members of the band have also written and recorded music with members of Sawyer Brown, Thompson Square, Winger, Giant, and Steve Perry’s band. Music that they have written and produced has been used in major motion pictures, TV, advertising, and recorded by several artists.

Top Tier takes pride in going above and beyond to make sure every client's event is second to none. Over 200 fantastic reviews of Top Tier have been posted online.

    Guests are still talking about the band

    One of the first decisions you make as you are planning your wedding is Band or DJ? For us, it was a band all the way, and it really does make your wedding go from a wedding to a WEDDING! We ended up booking Top Tier's five piece band, and our guests are STILL talking about how this was a wedding unlike any other they've been to because of the band! Top Tier knows exactly how to get the party started - their talent, their song choices, their energy are all so on point and bring the perfect vibe for you and your guests. Even my dad got out on the dance floor which is a sight I never thought I'd see! So many of our guests were still on the dance floor for the last song, if I can give any advice, it's to book these guys for as long as you can get them!!! Thank you Top Tier!

    Top Marks for Top Tier

    One of the first things I did after getting engaged was book Top Tier Band! I knew I wanted a live band and after doing a lot of research and listening to demos, I decided Top Tier Band was the one! We had so much fun having them play at our wedding. They definitely kept the party going!

    JD was great to work with throughout the planning process. He was very responsive to my millions of questions and got back to me promptly. He also acted as emcee and did a wonderful job keeping us on schedule.

    We are so glad we booked Top Tier Band for our Wedding!

    As an assistant working with Top Tier, I have learned so much about the wedding business from JD, the band owner and leader. JD is wonderful to work with – he is so organized and prepared for every event. Many times he has had to work without a wedding planner or coordinator and has done much of the work himself! First and foremost, he wants to make sure that the night is perfect for each and every couple. He goes above and beyond for every customer and works very hard to accommodate special requests for clients. He is also extremely responsive to their needs. As a wedding planner, I love working with JD and Top Tier because I know that everything will run smoothly and that JD has the clients’ best interests at heart. The band is phenomenal – so upbeat and it is very obvious that they truly love to play music together. I can’t say enough great things about JD and the band, and I’m so grateful to be a part of this wonderful company!
