There is just no way to put into words how AMAZING this band is!! I can honestly say they made our wedding perfect. We chose them because we loved their song list and also because they were the best value around after tons of research on other bands. From the beginning, JD made me feel so confident that they were on top of every detail, which was important for us planning an out-of-state wedding! He was incredibly quick in responding to my very long emails! We had several special requests to honor a few birthdays and anniversaries for our friends and they coordinated those flawlessly. But far and away the best thing I can say about Top Tier is that I was on the dance floor for our entire wedding reception :) Every song was a hit and the next day at brunch our guests (old and young!) couldn't stop talking about the band and how well they interacted with the crowd. Many of our friends played the tambourine and the cowbell, and my husband actually sat in with the band and played the guitar and sang a song too! It was definitely the highlight of the night for him. If you're looking for a band who can keep the hits coming, make all of your guests want to dance, and create amazing memories for everyone, definitely choose Top Tier!Sent on 06/20/2013

Top Tier Band was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! They were hired early on in the process, and seemed to check in at great times to be engaged with me during the planning process. The event went off without a hitch and I never had to worry about my guests having fun because the band was that good! The band played for us slowly during dinner, and then got the party started afterwards. I would without a doubt hire them again for any events I have planned in Nashville. We loved y'all!Sent on 04/09/2019

Dance floor was packed all night!
We loved using Top Tier Band for our wedding reception! JD was super responsive during the months leading up to the wedding and learned a new song that we requested for our first dance. Everyone loved the song selections, and our guests kept telling us how much they loved the band in the days following our wedding. The name of the band says it all!Sent on 04/02/2019
Top Tier's reply:
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!
Top Tier Band ROCKS! JD was unbelievably easy to work with and great on responding quickly! Top Tier does an amazing job in giving a couple the type of reception they are looking for! We always tell our couples a band or DJ can make or break a reception-Top Tier exceeds in making the reception a HIT! We look forward to working with Top Tier Band again and again!
