Top Tier was an excellent choice
Top Tier was an outstanding choice for my daughter's wedding. The Band was extremely flexible and responsive, as the reception went through various changes. Top Tier played a repertoire that offered everything from contemporary to the classics, and had all the guests and wedding party dancing the entire time. The band was extremely engaged during the entire reception.Sent on 07/30/2020

Great Experience with Top Tier Band!
Top Tier Band did an awesome job playing our wedding! The music was great and we received a ton of compliments from our guests. JD is a real pro - great to communicate with and made the whole process easy on us. We added the horn section which brought some great energy. I would definitely recommend booking Top Tier Band - they'll do a great job and it's one less thing you'll have to stress about!Sent on 05/10/2020

The best band we could have!
WOW! This band was fantastic! They were so easy to work with and they played the best music. Everyone was up dancing from start to finish. I'd hire them back again and again!Sent on 05/06/2019
Top Tier Band & DJ Service's reply:Thank you so much Karen! We had a fantastic time at the wedding and loved seeing all the dancers packing the dance floor! It was our honor to provide the entertainment for such a beautiful 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!
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!
Top Tier Band rock the house! Check these guys out if you want some of the best musicians in Music City to keep your guests on their feet and feelin' the beat!!
