    Book them!!

    The HSO made our wedding better than we could have dreamed! They kept the party moving along all night and everyone was dancing. Allan met with us to plan out the whole event. The band learned two new songs just for our wedding! Every one of our guests said that the band was the best wedding band ever. My advice to you is to book this fabulous band for your wedding!

    Amazing Experience

    This is the best wedding band I have ever heard. My good friend had them two years prior to my wedding and my parents were so impressed that they held onto the business card that whole time.

    The best decision

    High Society Orchestra was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. They made our wedding better than we could've dreamed. The musicians are fantastic talents and the singers were not only incredible, they danced on stage all night. There wasn't an empty spot on the dance floor. Allan helped plan the whole evening and was so cooperative throughout the process. Definitely book them for your wedding!

    Perfect band for our wedding!

    Allan and the orchestra are fantastic professionals. The musicianship of the band is amazing and the emceeing was top notch! Allan let us choose the songs so we were able to pick exactly what we wanted. High Society brought incredible energy to the wedding and the dance floor was packed. I don't care what people say about hiring DJs, nothing can match a real live band. You won't be disappointed that you hired them.

    The best band!

    We were very happy with High Society Orchestra. Your band leader, in particular, was excellent! We will recommend them to everyone. I almost wish we could get married again so we could hire them again!

    High Society Orchestra's reply:

    You were a beutiful bride. The groom was a lot of fun. It is always fun to play for people like you. High society has been playing weddings for many years.

    Hire them!

    We were really pleased with the High Society band. Everything they told us they would do for us was true. Allan helped us prepare the timeline for the night and everything was perfect. Two months prior to the wedding, they sent us their song list and asked us to pick out the high energy songs we wanted. They also asked us to list any songs we didn't want played. The night of our wedding, they followed the plan to a T. They also provided music for the ceremony too. The applause from our happy guests on the dance floor was incredible! If you're looking for a band who will make your party a success, hire them!

    Made my daughter's wedding perfect

    We have now had High Society play at both out daughters' weddings with the most recent being two months ago. Absolutely the best in every way! Professionals who have been a very big part of both our family weddings and leave all in attendance raving about their performance. We high recommend High Society!

    An Unforgettable Night!

    High Society was absolutely incredible. It was one of the best performances by a wedding band that we have ever seen. They have incredibly talented musicians and singers. Allan was so easy to work with. He was super organized and the planning was very clear and easy. If you want to wow your guests, High Society is the answer! They are very flexible and always willing to accommodate. They were very cooperative in learning a few new songs for the wedding. Their Motown medley is incredible. The dance floor was packed all night. Their selection of songs is amazing and they made our night unforgettable. Again-- amazing band!

    The best decision we made

    Words cannot express how wonderful the High Society orchestra was at our wedding. They were absolutely unbelievable! Our guests were dancing all night and we received many compliments. Hiring them was the best decision of our wedding. We are so glad that we booked you. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else.

    Best Band Ever

    Wow! They were off the charts! We would not hesitate to hire them again! They sounded phenomenal, had the right mix so that the guests were always on the dance floor and they kept the party moving until the end! Maybe what impressed us the most was their professionalism! Challenged with a less than abundance of room for themselves and their equipment, they showed just what professionals they were by adapting and making the best out of a less than ideal amount of space. They were fantastic!

    Incredible band!

    Allan and the HSO were about as outstanding as one could ask for. They performed at our wedding in June 2018.

    Allan was thoughtful, helpful, and accommodating throughout the process. His band members were terrific and I've had guests at the wedding continue to approach me months later to say how excellent the music was.

    We had HSO join us for the string quartet during cocktail hour and the 10-piece band during the reception. All of the music was so well planned and timed, we could not have been happier.

    Thank you to the whole ensemble!

    November 4, An incredible night. Comments where about the bride, the food and the music. The music was great it kept the guest engaged though out the night. The dance flow was always full, and the singers where wonderful and all 3 of them where engaging, personable and very talented. They had everyone on their feet from the flower girls and ring bearers to my 82 year old Uncle, and everyone in between. We had guests from all over the country, every comment had mention how great the band was. Carlo did a great job kept everything moving smoothly and his playing was spot on and great. Please a big thanks to the Carlo, set group, the musicians, the sound guy everything was great and we appreciate the warmth,professionallsm, and talent you provided for us. Frank & Kathy

    High Society did not disappoint! We had over 260 guests at our wedding, and ALL of them were on the dance floor the entire night. The group allowed us to customize our songs to our liking, and they sounded amazing. I would 100% recommend High Society to anyone looking for an awesome wedding band!!

    This band was totally amazing. There were five singers on stage, they had so much personality and talent, our guests were enthralled with them. They were not only great dancers but they communicated with our guests and had everyone dancing. The band was unbelievable, the musicians were top notch professionals, we picked the music and they did a great job playing our choices. This orchestra made our event, I could not have asked for anything more. The were OUTSTANDING and our expectations were more than met. You will not be disappointed, they were truly the best.

    There are no words to describe how thrilled we were to have found the High Society Orchestra. they are unlike any wedding band that you have ever seen or heard before, Allan, their manager is an honest and reliable business person, that is very cooperative. Given how important music is at any wedding, it is crucial to find a band that can keep your guests on the dance floor having a blast. They have played at three of our sons weddings and we would not have had any other band. Best band ever - hands down. Every guest at our wedding raved about the music. the energy that they created was fun and exciting. If you want an absolute kick - ass wedding that your guests will remember for a long time, this band is the best. BOOK - THEM!

    The band was the most important decision for our wedding. We had a big dancing crowd and we wanted an energetic band that would keep everyone on their feet all night long. High Society brought such professionalism, experience and fun. From start to finish, they knew exactly what to do. This comes with experience and their over ten years of playing together shows. They enjoy what they do and this reflects to the crowd. Our wedding guests left raving about the music.

    We had a 100 people dinner and dancing celebration party at a country club. All of our friends raved about the band (5 musicians and 3 singers). We had young, middle age and older folks and everyone had a great time.

    Allan was very professional and helped plan all aspects of the musical portion and announcing the Bridal Couple. They provided the highest quality non-stop musical entertainment, and everyone at the wedding reception was dancing all night. I had no fewer than 40 comments from friends after the reception that it was the best ever!! I would definitely use High Society again!
