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).

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.

    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!

    Where do I start?

    From the beginning to the end Top Tier was everything we could’ve imagined and more. JD was extremely professional, responsive and accommodating as a contact so that we never had to feel stressed or concerned they wouldn’t deliver what we hoped they would...Not going to lie, I hyped up the band/dance floor to everyone I knew that was coming and they blew the hype out of the water. My only regret was that the reception had to end and they had to head home!! Can’t wait to see which one of my friend brings them back into the fold in the future and would honestly say if you’re looking for bands then look no further!!!!

    Top Tier's reply:

    Wow, thank you SO much for the fantastic review Quinn!! We're thrilled that you, Joan, and the guests were so happy with the band! We truly appreciate you taking the time to leave those kind words! We wish you and Joan all the best and hope to see you both at a future 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!
