    Amazing band!

    We chose D Play for our wedding on 4/20/19 at Felicity Street Church, and we were blown away by this band! From the first song, our guests were on the dance floor! Overall, John the manager was very easy to work leading up to our wedding. We truly loved this band and our guests raved about them. We had guests from all over the U.S. tell us about how this was the best wedding band they had ever experienced (and we agreed). Thank you D Play for making our day so special and memorable. YALL ROCK!!

    Savior during COVID-19

    John has been an absolute blessing to work with! We were so excited to book DPlay for our wedding, but COVID-19 had other plans. John was a saving grace in rescheduling with us quickly while all other details were up in the air. He responded to my panicked emails ASAP and offered so much advice in navigating this craziness. DPlay was one of our most important vendors, and to the extent that it’s even possible now, we appreciate John all the more.

    Daughter's Wedding

    "The Best Band". We loved DPlay. The guests at our daughter's wedding are still raving about how great they were. Many have commented that this was the best wedding they had ever attended. The musicians and singers are incredibly talented. Their appearance is visually stunning. They can play any genre and kept the dance floor full all night. We could not be more pleased with our decision to hire DPlay. We highly recommend this "Best Band" for any function.

    DPlay is hands down, THE best band you can get in the entertainment industry! Super professional, punctual, well dressed and worth every penny. Every song is spot on what the crowd wants and each musician is mad talented. I wish I could relive my wedding reception over and over. DPlay brings it!

    D-Play Band

    This band was AMAZING! They truly executed the songs and genres we requested. No one left the dance floor the entire reception! They were so engaging, energetic, and talented! Every person in the band was into every song and truly put on their BEST performance! To this day, our guests still ask us, “What was the name of your band? They were awesome!”

    The most amazing band we could have ever hoped for!

    D Play was absolutely amazing!!! They had such high energy all night, and truly kept EVERYONE out on the dance floor throughout the entire evening. You hardly ever saw any of our guests sitting down, and that's exactly how we dreamed of it being at our wedding. We are still getting compliments from friends and guests saying how this was the greatest band they have ever seen! We didn't have any specific requests, but the set list they came up with on their own was fantastic. It was the perfect mix of upbeat oldies and all the newest hits you hear on the radio! You will not be disappointed if you book D Play for your wedding, I can guarantee it! Thank you so much for exceeding all of our expectations, you are the BEST!

    Wow! D play, an all-around experience!

    "The best wedding band I have ever seen and heard!" - All that our wedding guests could say at our reception and second line in New Orleans in October 2019. Long story short, D Play knows how to put on a show. They brought the house down with talented vocalists, high energy, lots of brass, and plenty of moves. My wife and I could not be happier that we chose D Play to keep our 250+ guests grooving all night. After the reception, their brass band led us through the streets and absolutely crushed it. John, the band manager, made sure to answer all of our questions and requests, even the nit-picky ones. You can tell he cared that we have the best experience possible. The band learned a few extra songs for us and even changed up their playlist on the fly the night of the reception. I would recommend D Play to anyone who is looking for a band that knows how to keep the crowd loose and engaged, and to turn up the party. We all had a blast. Thanks John and D Play!

    Incredible!

    The best wedding band ever!! They met with us early on and understood our music vision! Great horn section, and the lead female singers were enthusiastic, beautiful, and spunky. The band played funk songs for the Mardi Gras Indians, who made an appearance at the end of the wedding. Everything about D Play was perfect!! Thank you for making our reception so amazing!

    Unforgettable

    They were professional, organized and most importantly the best band ever! They were on the dance floor with everyone interacting with the crowd. The music was amazing and they kept the crowd going until midnight! They were especially accommodating when it came to learning songs we requested and helped us surprise the groom with a special guest (Bully from MSU!). Can’t say enough great things about this band, definitely recommend hiring for your wedding day!

    DPlay is the best band in NOLA

    I’m a firm believer that the music is at least 60% of what makes a wedding fun and enjoyable. Sara and I didn’t just want to have a great wedding, we wanted it to be unforgettable. I’ve got to be honest, DPlay absolutely crushed it! From a business acumen standpoint, John was very responsive via email and phone. He also made time to meet with us when we came into NOLA from Chicago.

    At the reception, they played everything from Drake and Rihanna to John Legend and Justin Timberlake. Their song list is very long and extremely diverse so they can tailor the music to any crowd. They also have a tremendous feel for the audience and what types of songs everyone is into. I really enjoyed how they were interactive with the guests and singing on the dance floor.

    There were multiple times during the start of certain songs when our guests were losing their minds and so excited about what song they were playing. After the reception, everyone raved about DPlay and how that was the most fun they’ve had at a wedding and that our band was incredible.

    If you have a younger crowd that likes hip hop, then DPlay is the band you need to hire. If you care for more traditional wedding music, but you want it to be a lively atmosphere, hire DPlay.

    DPlay exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t thank them enough for making our wedding the best night ever.

    Amid a hurricane, D Play delivered BIG TIME

    When there's a hurricane barreling toward your wedding, it's good to have wedding vendors who are reassuring, calming, and whose first question is "what can I do to help?" John with D Play was exactly the person we needed to navigate us through a tremendously difficult week as Hurricane Michael made landfall. John stayed in touch, helped troubleshoot, sourced extra generators (since power was out in the area), and kept us comfortable. John and the rest of D Play showed up ready to party. We had an uncertain week with the storm and all of the re-routing we had to do for our guests (all who ended up staying northwest of where they had originally intended, due to the aforementioned power outages, and inability to fly into ECP). Throughout the night, people kept coming up wondering where we'd found D Play, and raving about how good they were. D Play is authentic, full of talent, and they went far beyond the call of duty to make our wedding so special. You'd be lucky to have them perform for you. We were.

    If you are looking for a high energy band that makes the crowd dance all night, D Play is it. Our family and friends love to stay on the dance floor and that is what we did from beginning to end. Communication with John was easy and efficient.

    Absolutely Amazing!!! This band knows how to bring the party! That’s just what my husband and I wanted. So many people have told us they did not leave the dance floor and they had the best time! I told them that was what we wanted... and DPLAY made it happen! They are so fun and so easy to work with! If you want to have the time of your life and your guests to as well... CHOOSE DPLAY!

    I had done a ton of research for a band as that was my #1 priority (making sure my guests danced all night long!) and I heard nothing but great things about D Play! They were SO easy to communicate with from the very beginning and their professionalism and promptness was unmatched. Sadly, the date we ended up choosing didn’t work for them but John gave me contact info for their sister band, GOT Groove (who is also amazing!) and John sent me all the information I needed along with the proposal within the same day. They really care about the overall experience and tailoring the performance to match your needs. I 100% recommend John and his band to anyone who is looking for a professional, energetic band for their wedding or other event!
