A Truly Professional Musical Group
From the moment we found DC Fusion's amazing demo tape on-line, Chris Grasso has been instrumental in helping us plan our daughter's wedding reception. He responded quickly and clearly to every email and phone call, provided helpful advice on event timing and playlists, and was incredibly accommodating and patient as we worked to re-schedule the date and location of the reception during the pandemic. In the end, we cancelled the reception due to COVID concerns, but Chris refunded our entire deposit. His was the only company among all our vendors (venue, caterer, photographer, videographer, florist, etc.) to refund our deposit. We hope to re-book DC Fusion for another event in the future. In the meantime, we wish Chris, his incredible musicians, and his company all the best.Sent on 08/04/2020
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Michelle, I really can't express how much this review means to me and to all of the members of the band. I know how disappointing it is for your family not to be able to have the big celebration you had planned, but I'm so glad that you're all doing well and staying safe. I hope that one day soon, we'll all be able to celebrate life's milestones the way they deserve. Wish you and your family all the best!

Loved DC Fusion!
DC Fusion was such an amazing wedding band. I booked them for our July 13, 2019 wedding after only hearing their song samplings online, and I am so so happy we went with them. They are so talented! All their songs were wonderful, and their rendition of our first dance song (which they learned for the occasion) was perfect. Our guests loved them and kept telling us how great the band was—especially when the saxophonist came out on the dance floor! Everyone was dancing all night long. All communication with the band before the wedding was so helpful too. As one example, we didn’t want our first dance to last for the entire song so they suggested what was a natural break in the song so it would be about one minute and provided an MP3 file editing the song accordingly. They also made suggestions to our timeline that made everything flow much better than I had originally planned. I cannot recommend DC Fusion enough, we loved them so much!!Sent on 07/15/2019

Stop your search now!!
DC Fusion provided the entertainment of the century at our wedding in January, and we were absolutely blown away. As a bride and groom, you're stretched pretty thin on your wedding day. As we paraded paraded through the hall of our venue attempting to greet all of our guests, we kept asking how things were going in the main ballroom. Every guest said "the dance floor is full and the band is amazing," which we expected them to say since we really liked what we saw from DC Fusion online. However, when we finally made it back into the ballroom and saw for ourselves what the band was doing on the dance floor, we were FLOORED. The floor was packed, the sax player was rocking out in the crowd, people were jumping and screaming... It was beyond words. DC Fusion played their heart and soul out and 100% made our wedding memorable for us and our guests. Amazing musical talent, all great musicians and vocalists. Fantastic mix of songs (including the two they learned for our first dance and parent dance) and really read the room perfectly. From the moment they played our first dance, to the final rendition of "Shout" to close us out, we were amazed by DC Fusion and highly recommend them as THE wedding band of DC. If you're reading this trying to pick a group to play your wedding, stop your search right now. DC Fusion is the only way to go.Sent on 02/15/2020

Chris Grasso and DC Fusion
Chris Grasso was just terrific to work with! All along the way he was helpful, flexible and professional. With excellent attention to detail, he guided us to a perfect wedding party. DC Fusion was such a fantastic band. They had everyone on the dance floor the entire night with a wide selection of songs to suit all tastes. Their sound was strong from beginning to end.

Killer dance band; accomplished, professional and worth every penny.
After playing countless club gigs myself, and having heard scores of club / wedding bands, I have to say, these folks are among the very best of them. As tight, versatile and accomplished as you'll find, professional in every sense, and just a killer combination of musicians and singers. Every one of our guests said they were the best dance band they'd ever heard. Can't say enough about them - check out their demo video on their agent Chris Grasso's site - https://chrisgrassomusic.com/Fusion/ As they say at the end of their video, they WILL make you dance.Sent on 05/20/2019
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Thanks so much Bruce! We are so glad that everyone enjoyed the band! We appreciate being a part of your wedding, and wish you and Ann all the best! Hope to see you at another celebration soon.

They made our wedding the amazing party it was!
My husband and I highly recommend Chris Grasso and DC Fusion. Chris was a delight to work with and DC Fusion is an incredible wedding band! The entire experience was so easy and stress-free. Chris and the band were all so professional and they made our wedding the amazing party it was! Multiple people came up to us and told us DC Fusion was the best wedding band they had heard! You won't go wrong with hiring them!Sent on 11/17/2018
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Dear Molly, we are so happy to hear that you and your guests had a great time and enjoyed the music! It was such a pleasure to work with you. Wishing you and Eric all the best!

Highly Recommend - Incredible Band
DC Fusion was an awesome wedding band from start to finish. Their manager Chris Grasso was incredibly responsive through the entire planning process and worked with us to make sure we had the experience we wanted on our wedding day. They learned the songs we wanted them to for our wedding day, they were totally open and amenable to our song list requests, and they sounded incredible on the wedding day!Sent on 11/04/2018
They were flexible with the size of the band, and went with a slightly smaller lineup because we had a relatively small dance floor area. They had great energy, kept our dance floor packed all night! We were totally pleased with our choice in wedding band and would definitely recommend them to anybody.

Dc fusion is amazing!
My brother used Chris Grasso Music and after all of our family and friends raved about them my now husband and I did not want to use anyone else. DC Fusion lived up to all of our expectations, and made our day extra special. They are so talented and even performed our First Dance Song, which we will remember forever.Sent on 11/15/2018
We highly recommend them to anyone who wants a band that can get a crowd going, and would chose them again!!
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Dear Marissa, we are so glad that DC Fusion is becoming a family tradition! Thank you so much for inviting the band to be a part of your celebration. Wishing you and Sean all the best!
Sondra · Married on 06/02/2018
The band was amazing! Our one regret from the wedding is that while socializing with all of the guests we did not get enough time to enjoy how great the live music was! We got so many compliments from all of our guests who had a great time! We had so much fun! They learned the song for our first dance and gave a great performance! We could not have asked for a better band! Chris was so responsive! We went through all of the details in advance and talked through our rain plan on the phone the day of the wedding. He was so accommodating in answering questions! It was clear they were very experienced! Having live music is more money than hiring a DJ but it was well worth it.Sent on 06/26/2018

Dear DC Fusion, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! You did exactly what we wanted: You kept the dance floor packed and our wedding rocking all night. DC Fusion has a reputation for being able to read a crowd and they lived up to that reputation. In addition, DC Fusion granted our every wish, including our very detailed requests when it came to our: Hora, father/daughter dance, first dance, parental tribute dance, introduction as husband and wife, and opening set. When the saxophonist jumped down to the dance floor to do his thing, our friends and family went wild. DC Fusion never had to resort to encouraging or directing people verbally; their musical direction did it all. DC Fusion accommodated us by playing for our pre-ceremony cocktail hour as well, even though it required them to do some logistical juggling of the instruments that would be used again in a different location for the reception. Their classic jazz musical selections during the cocktail hour were perfect. Finally, communications with DC were easy and professional throughout. Their reached out to us more than a month before the wedding with a questionnaire designed to facilitate music planning, their song list, sample time-lines, and contact information. We spoke to both the band's manager and leader before the wedding and felt completely confident that our wishes were understood. We knew it at the time but now, six weeks after the wedding, we look at our photos and videos and are reminded again, of how great DC Fusion was. If you want your wedding dance floor to be continuously full of happy friends and family dancing their hearts out, go with DC Fusion. You'll be thrilled with the results.Sent on 07/03/2018

Made our night!!
The band was hands-down the best decision we made about our wedding. Everyone loved it from our little flower girls all the way up to the grandmas! They played a great variety of tunes and kept people on the dance floor all night. People are still talking about how fun the band was! Chris was professional and very responsive to all our requests. It was a pleasure working with him! Everything was easy to coordinate and he gave us peace of mind about how the day would go. With so many things to worry about, he made it easy to check something off the list. I recommend them to everyone! They really made our day extra special!Sent on 12/27/2018
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Greetings Molly and Luis, and thank you so much for making the band a part of your wedding! It was a pleasure working with you, and I'm so glad to hear that everything worked out so well. Sending you all the best - and Happy New Year!

DC Fusion performed at our wedding and completely blew us out of the water! We requested 2 new songs not on their song list for our first dance and our "father/daughter mother/son" dance and they were both perfect! DC Fusion kept our guests on the dance floor all night with an amazing selection of songs. I highly recommend DC Fusion, they were instrumental in our perfect wedding night.Sent on 01/11/2018

We are so glad we chose DC Fusion to perform at our wedding! Throughout the planning process, Chris was very responsive and professional! We loved every song the band played and our guests couldn't stop raving about the music- many guests said it was "the best band" they'd ever heard! Once the music started no one wanted it to stop- truly, when it came time for our reception to end no one wanted to leave because they were having such a great time on the dance floor. I mean it when I say choosing DC Fusion as our wedding band was one of the best decisions we made.Sent on 11/14/2017

DC Fusion absolutely made our wedding!!! They were phenomenal! The music was amazing and the musicians truly kind and accommodating. They were able to read the crowd and really made the night special. They took into consideration our preferences and really delivered exactly what we asked for. The individual dances were wonderful. We had two musicians also play during our cocktail which was a nice touch. Working with Chris was easy; he's organized, helpful and very responsive. We are just so thankful for the wonderful experience that they gave us and our guests. Would recommend 100%! Thank you guys so so much! Big shout out to Randy on guitar, you're incredible!!!Sent on 10/11/2017

Booking DC Fusion was easily one of the best wedding vendor decisions we made. The entire band was terrific - everyone loved the music and people are still telling us how much fun they had on the dance floor! Benjie and the band went out of their way to incorporate a few special moments/tributes to key people, and the entire night was flawless.Sent on 09/26/2017
Additionally, Chris was an awesome partner to work with throughout the planning process. Our venue presented us with a few unexpected challenges, and Chris was crucial to helping us navigate around them. He was incredibly patient with my many questions and concerns, and provided helpful guidance to ensure our entire night was seamless and tons of fun for everyone. Could not recommend them more highly!
Chris Grasso Music's reply:Thank you so much for inviting DC Fusion to be part of your wedding, and for the wonderful review. We are so glad to hear that everyone enjoyed the band and had a great night. Look forward to seeing you at another celebration soon -- wishing you and David all the best!

Chris was so great to work with--helped us find just the right band for our wedding, with a great repertoire and fantastic groove. We hired DC Fusion--as someone who's been playing music for pay since the 1970s, I have to say they were absolutely amazing, rave reviews from all my guests, including many musicians and a few pros. Chris was amazing to work with, thought of everything, great and fast communication, 100 percent professional. I'd work with him again any day!Sent on 07/12/2017

If you want a dance party at your wedding then DC fusion is the way to go. From the first song to the end of the night, the dance floor was packed. So many people came up to us and told us wow... where did you manage to find that band- they were amazing. I was a little worried about going with a band because its somewhat of a wild card- but I should have not worried about all because they knocked it out of the park. It was very important to for me to have a wedding where everyone had a great time and DC fusion made that happen- I am so thankful they were part of my big day!!Sent on 06/20/2017
Nicole · Married on 04/22/2017
Such a great band!!! I used the vocalist and keyboardist for my ceremony and the full band for my reception. They learned a few songs that were special to me and their existing song list is quite extensive. We had a long, 6 hour reception and they were amazing the entire time! I honestly don't know how they did it!Sent on 04/30/2017
The saxophone player would come onto the dance floor on occasion and blew away the guests with his solos. The vocalists were amazing and the drummer has quite the voice too! The guitarist, keyboardist, saxophone player, and entire band- absolutely great. I had a number of guests ask me the name of the band too!
All my communication was with Chris Grasso (the manager?) and he was super responsive and accommodating.
My sister did a surprise toast that involved music and she said her communication with the band in setting up the surprise was perfect too.
Nothing to complain about! Definitely recommend!
