    10 out of 10!

    If you want everyone to be up and dancing and have a great time at your wedding, you need this band! We had them at our wedding on September 28th and they were amazing! Anytime we run into someone who was at our wedding, they all have commented on how great our band was! Great singers, great dancers, and terrific song selections that kept the atmosphere fun and alive all night long! My husband and I could not have been happier with our decision to hire them! They did an incredible job and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

    Best Wedding band EVER!


    12 south is the best wedding band ever! They were recommended to me by a co – worker who said they made her wedding, and I thought maybe she was just being nice or exaggerating, She wasn’t! They made my wedding too! We actually had 6 south, the 6 piece band, but you would never have been able to tell it wasn’t the whole band. They had EVERYONE up on their feet dancing the entire wedding from my 9 year old cousin to grandparents and parents. They made it a blast! Our guests were raving about them and still are! If you want a band that will make your wedding, BOOK 12 South band!

    The best decision I've ever made

    No other band can make a wedding as fun as 12 South Band can! They are INCREDIBLE! Our guests never stopped dancing and were blown away that the band didn't take a single break. They kept playing hit after hit with amazing choreography. They came out and interacted with guests and had us on stage to dance too. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how awesome they were. If you want a really, really fun wedding band, get 12 South!

    Greatest Band Ever

    This band was the highlight of our daughter's wedding reception. Everyone was up dancing and celebrating. Played 4 hours with only a 10 minute break and the dance floor was packed. Can't say enough good things in such a small space, just don't look anywhere else. BOOK 12 SOUTH BAND. I never talked to them, all arrangements done via emails and they did not fail to meet our every expectation. Every guest came up to us saying this was the best band they've ever heard. Hire them now and don't look further. You will not regret it.

    Outstanding

    The 12 South Band went above and beyond to make our wedding memorable. They played the perfect mixture of oldies and new day music to keep everyone happy and dancing all night. We still have guests talking about how awesome the band was! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a wedding where you dance the night away!

    Best wedding band ever

    Drop whatever you are doing and immediately book this band! It will be hands-down the best money you spend.

    I had my wedding in Charlotte and we had so much trouble finding a band there that we liked. After we watched (and cringed at) every promo video for every band in the city, my hubby had the genius idea to go farther afield and look for someone in Nashville. I was a little worried about the added travel cost, but it was super reasonable (we ended up paying about the same for what we would have for a Charlotte-based band). They were incredibly easy to work with and were all such wonderful human beings!

    And as soon as their performance started – my mind was blown. Their energy level was off the charts and their costume changes and light effects added to our excitement. My photographer even commented that at one point she had trouble taking fun pics of us because we were all just staring open-mouthed watching the band like we were at an epic concert! But don’t worry, the staring quickly turned to dancing and that dancing did not stop. We danced and sang along with the band til 1am with only a short break. They had such a great music range so there was something for everyone. We were shocked that by the end of the night almost everyone, regardless of age, was still there dancing the night away.

    Thank you guys for an epic night. You’re welcome back in Charlotte anytime.

    Wow! What a band

    We recently had this amazing band at our Wedding in August, they were a huge hit! We had people from all over the state come to Kentucky for the wedding and everyone was just taken away by how awesome 8 South was. The dance floor was packed until the end of the night. This is one thing you must have if your wanting a amazing wedding! We haven’t got our video or photos back but posted are some from our wedding planner.

    If they aren't available, change your date!

    Here's the thing: This band MADE our wedding. At least 90% of our 200+ wedding guests were on the dance floor almost the entire time. All anyone could talk about how was incredible the band was -- and our entire wedding was objectively awesome. Their version of the horah was the best I've ever seen. They were fun, energetic, talented, responsive, and more than happy to learn the songs we requested. They even learned the Game of Thrones theme song for our cake cutting! Just...hire them, okay? You won't regret it!

    Out of all the vendors I dealt with......THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST!! I loved working with Anna (who was also very helpful in developing a timeline for me). If you want a fun fun wedding reception, you MUST hire this band. Costume changes, sang tons of songs of all genres, FUN! Our guests couldn't stop talking about it non-stop. LOVE LOVE LOVE these people!!!

    What an absolutely fantastic band!!! They played at my daughter's wedding. They are not only professional and extremely talented, but the crowd absolutely loved them - so much that the dance floor was still full at the end of the night. Diversity of music played appealed to everyone as well. They're a must hire for any function!!!!

    This band is AMAZING! Our wedding was moved inside a barn due to the rain and they were completely flexible and willing to work with our day of coordinator. We were just "going with it" and they know how to do that. They're the absolute best. Our bridal party and guests danced the night away. They played our first dance, father/daughter, mother/son with perfection. We had the 8-piece band versus the 12-piece because our venue was a little smaller. Will forever recommend this band!

    We have been having the same conference at the Hilton Sandestin for over 30 year and this was BY FAR the best band we have ever hired! Anna was such a pleasure to work with while planning, very professional. I felt like I was in a music montage, the band was NON stop for over 3 hours with costume changes. And when it was over they came back for an encore. Could not have asked for a better band! THANK YOU 12 South!!!!

    If we could do it all over, we would have left a lot more time for the band to perform. Anna was great to work with, especially in her flexibility to meet with us while we were in town (destination wedding). 12 South was one of the best decisions we made for our reception. All of our guests were on the dance floor the whole time and loved the energy from the band members and the song selections they played. We wish we could party with this crew every weekend.

    My husband and I were absolutely blown away by 12 South Band. We opted for the eight piece option and they exceeded all of our expectations. Leading up the wedding, they were very responsive and easy to work with. Anna even gave us dance lessons and choreographed our first dance! They set a lively, energetic tone for our reception and guests were on the dance floor all night. Our guests raved that they felt like they were at a concert and could not stop talking about them! We are so happy with 12 South Band and would recommend them over a DJ any day!

    you can not beat this band.. we used their 8 South Band plus 1 for my daughter's April wedding here in Memphis.. I had attended a cousin's wedding in Nashville January 2016 and thought they were so good that they would be great for my daughter's wedding.. they kept the crowd on their feet the entire reception and the crowd at the end was as big as at the beginning.. my daughter and her new husband had a blast.. you can not go wrong hiring them.. such fun! A day and night to remember!

    12South Band is the best band we have ever seen or heard. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Ten Stars!
    Anna choreographed a family dance for us that was so fun to learn and surprised our guests in lieu of the typical father daughter etc. dances. We are still smiling and laughing about how much fun we had and how great 12South Band was. I want to hire them for another party soon!

    My husband and I met at Rippy's on Lower Broad and wanted our wedding to showcase the night we met. Naturally, we picked the Nash Country ensemble of the 12 South Band and were absolutely blown away!!! Not only did they go above and beyond to learn our random request songs, they played every song I suggested or requested from their set list. During the planning stages, Anna was so responsive and helpful which translated seamlessly with the band once our big day arrived. I can't even articulate in words how amazing of an experience it was working with them. We had Industry professionals as guests, and all of them were asking where we found them! We got married in Franklin, and even had the Franklin PD show up because they were rocking so hard! We took this as a huge compliment to our party! :). Don't hesitate! Book this band!

    This band MADE. MY. WEDDING. I knew we'd booked a good band, based on the reviews and their incredible promo video, but I didn't even comprehend just how good they actually are!! They were better than any CONCERT I've ever been to in my life, and word on the street is that our wedding will go down in history b/c of 12 South. I probably should have talked to my wedding guests more, but I spent the majority of my wedding reception on the dance floor, having literally the most fun I've ever had in my entire life. My knee was swollen the next day from dancing, and I lost my voice from singing, but it was totally worth it. I'm now in this weird state of depression that the night is over and the band is gone. I may be married and all now, but I miss my 12 South friends. It was truly the best night of my life, and I couldn't be happier with how amazing they made our wedding reception!

    Don't even think about it, book this band!!

    Hands down the absolute best decision my committee and I made for our fundraising event! This band had a good part of our 300 guests on the dance floor by the end of their first song and kept them there all night! They are as professional as they are talented. We booked them for the following year before they had their gear packed up!

    P.S. Nashville is not an easy place to perform and they totally rocked it (even the country artists in attendance agreed).

    The 12 South Band seriously made our wedding night!! Picking a band was probably one of the biggest decisions throughout the wedding planning process because all we wanted was for our guests to have an absolute blast. And with all said and done, I couldn't be happier that we found the 12 South Band! Their energy had everyone on the dance floor as soon as they took the stage and it lasted throughout the entire night! The level of talent within the group is unbelievable... on top of providing just a great variety of music, they are true entertainers. I was too busy dancing my butt off, but I wish I could've watched their every move! We have received endless compliments on how amazing and fun our reception was (many have even said it's the best they've been to) and we owe it all to the band! Additionally, Anna was so easy to work with and responsive during the whole booking process. AND they learned our 3 special dance songs for us, which turned out beautifully!

    All in all, this band is AMAZING! I honestly cannot say enough about them and how highly I recommend them for any event in need of great entertainment! I can only hope I get the opportunity to see this band perform again someday. A million times Thank You 12 South Band!!!!

    12 South far exceeded my expectations! Everyone including the venue staff remarked about how professional and polite every member was and how easy it was to work with them. They were punctual in setting up. Their actual performance was over-the-top!!! They sang every genre and were extremely talented. The showmanship was fantastic with lighting changes and costumes and great choreographed dance. The dance floor was not big enough to accommodate everyone who was dancing to the sounds of 12 South. The attendees would have stayed forever if the band had kept playing. I have had two people in the first 24 hours ask for the contact information on the band. Yes, they were that good. Absolutely outstanding and a total pleasure.

    Our in boxes are filled with compliments from our guests raving about this band. They delivered an exciting performance for our family's wedding reception last weekend. No doubt they are extraordinary performers, both musically and as stage artists who can captivate the audience. Their pace of play is remarkable. They were the ideal capstone to a great celebration.

    Stop reading these reviews and book this band!! It's hard to put into words how incredibly glad we were that we booked the 12 South Band for our wedding. They are some of the most talented musicians you will ever meet, and they are SO FUN! My husband and I joke about being wedding crashers just so we can hear this band again! Our wedding was over a month ago, and we still have people tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to. Our guests had so much fun and so did we! Anna was a dream to work with and was very prompt with returning emails and phone calls. Thank you 12 South Band!

    12 South was awesome for my daughters wedding! did everything music wise, before, during after!! Loved them playing appropriate music during dinner, and of course MC-ing all the wedding stuff! No worries about set up, very professional! I used to have clubs, so I know the issues with timing, set up, etc. Great attitudes throughout the day! And once the crowd got into it, they know what to play. Cant say enough about this band. Best of luck to the band and its support staff!

    There is no way we could have had a better band!! They were so great. I have had more people than I can count tell me it was the funnest reception/band they'd ever seen. From kids the grandparents, everyone was on their feet dancing the entire night! They had so much energy and really brought it to the stage (and off the stage)! Since the wedding, I've had 2 or 3 different people with upcoming events ask for the bands information! I would definitely recommend the 12southband to everyone. You will be missing out if you don't!!!
