    Fun, festive, entertaining!

    What to say about Andrew Thielen Big Band? Being from Charleston, it felt like a piece of home I was bringing with me to my wedding. I currently live in Florida, but our wedding was at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC which not only is within the travel zone for the band, but they had even played this venue in the past and that was a huge reassurance that they were familiar with the venue and grounds. They have played Saturday Night Live and Betty White's birthday event- so that was all the resume I needed!
    Andrew was an absolute pleasure to work with- he communicates very easily over email and was able to discuss with me everything down to timing, decor, song lists, band options and add ons, and the actual contract over the phone.
    The band absolutely brings down the house! I had multiple wedding guests come up to me and say that this was by far the best wedding band they'd ever heard and most impressive stage set up, and also the crowd was dancing until the very end of the night!

    For the wedding, I used/;
    Hornpipe
    Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring
    Canon in D
    Trumpet voluntary (bride processional)
    Recessional :
    Marvel Avengers theme (they killed it!! everyone loved this!)

    the jazz trio for cocktail hour was awesome.

    For our first dance, Andrew wrote a new arrangement for “It’s been a long, long time” a version that would be 1 minute and 49 seconds long for us.

    Truly, everything was a dream. A very fun dream. If I had a way to do it all again, I'd hands down choose them again!

    Andrew is AMAZING!!!

    Andrew and his band are the BEST!! Our wedding planner recommended Andrew Thielen Big Band and his DJ and they were AWESOME! Our guests are still talking about how great they were. We had guests on the dance floor before dark, and we all danced the entire night! Andrew is very talented and we couldn't have gotten anything better!! Thank you so much!!

    Only book The Andrew Thielen Big Band if you want your guests to dance all night, overflow the dance floor, a band that is beyond interactive with your guests, and looks and sounds out of this world. There are no words to describe how amazing their sound and presentation is. I had a terrible experience with my initial wedding band. They cancelled on me five months out. Andrew was there to save the day. Looking back, my first band canceling was the best thing that happened to me because there is no way they could hold a candle to The Andrew Thielen Big Band. I was a bit nervous because I booked them based solely off their soundbites on their website (which were amazing). I had never heard them live. They were approximately 100x better live than on their website, which I didn't know could be possible. They blew me away. My husband and I have talked about how awesome they are every day since the wedding. Guests were wondering how in the world we found them. Our one friend who attends so many weddings it is practically his job told us they were the best band he had ever heard. People were dancing the night away until the very last song, and we didn't want it to end! Not only are they AMAZING at what they do, Andrew is an absolute delight to work with. He is so professional, kind, and charming. If you want a wedding to remember for years to come, book The Andrew Thielen Big Band. They provide sound in a way no other wedding band can.

    Wow! Need I say more to give this band credit?! They had a huge variety of music, and they kept the crowd entertained the entire evening. Their sound was superb, and they played at the appropriate sound level for our event. Everyone, young and old, danced until they stopped playing. We couldn't have selected a more fun band to help us celebrate our event, and we would certainly use them again!

    The band was amazing. Great music, everyone danced, they ran a good show, getting people involved even (my guests and I are very musical). I love big band music. Only problem - they made fun of my mom emailing them a lot. Not cool. But I still highly recommend them. People are still talking about my wedding, and I know the music is a big part of that.

    The Andrew Thielen Band was a wonderful addition to our wedding. I have had so many guest compliment them that they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. They were very gracious to arrange our first dance song and include an addition tot he father-daughter dance. The dance floor was packed when they were playing. I would definitely recommend them!
