The BEST band!
OPOV Band is a MUST! They played for our 350+ guest wedding reception and were the talk of the town. They had the entire crowd on their feet the whole night! They brought soul and energy to our wedding cocktail hour and reception and FAR exceeded our expectations. From our initial contact and booking to the day of our reception, they were timely and professional. You will not regret hiring them for your big day. Thank you OPOV for sharing your talent with us and our guests!! We can’t wait to celebrate with you all again!!Sent on 12/03/2019
OPOV Band's reply:Chibbi, Thank you so much for choosing OPOV Band for your special day. We had so much fun sharing our talents with you all. This was one of the largest and probably the most memorable wedding celebration we've experienced. The combination of cultural celebration scenes and music were amazing. Thank you for challenging us to broaden our musical horizon with the special requested songs that were different than other wedding reception we've performed. We feel like you guys are part of the OPOV family now. Looking forward to doing other events with you all. Have a bless, happy, and victorious marriage...

Band does not disappoint
My wife and I booked this band for her parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. We first saw them in action about 2 years ago and said if we ever did an event we would look them up. They sounded great then and did not disappoint. From the moment we reached out to them you can tell they wanted to exceed our expectations and that they did. The band performed live music for the vow renewal processional and recessional which added an authentic touch to the ceremony. They sounded amazing. At the request of the bride and groom, they performed “At Last” by Etta James for their first dance. They kept the hall filled with music while guests dined and during the reception. Guests were asking about how to book them for their own upcoming events. If you have an event where you want great sounding music, I’d recommend the OPOV Band hands down.Sent on 06/08/2019

Best Motown/Funk Band in Birmingham by far!!!
I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing the OPOV BAND was at our wedding reception on 4/6/19. From the first time I spoke with Sam I knew they were the right band for our wedding reception. They were so accommodating and learned our first dance songs for us so they could play them and man did they kill it. My husband and I chose “Crush” by Dave Matthews Band for our first dance song. That song is definitely not easy to learn and play but they brought me to tears when I heard it. I was floored with how good they sounded. They also learned and played a special request I had. My dad loves wagon wheel by Darius Rucker and they played it for him as a surprise and my dad was so excited. The whole band was interactive with the crowd and got the guests to get out of their chairs and get down on the dance floor. The talk of the wedding reception was how amazing they were. And not only were they all amazing performers they are just good genuine people who enjoy taking part in making a wedding reception special and fun. One of my aunts has a couple of friends getting married and has already given her friends their contact information because she was so impressed just like all of the guests were. It was truly a special unforgettable wedding reception all thanks to the OPOV BAND. Trust me you will not be disappointed if you hire them!Sent on 04/11/2019

We could not have had a better experience with OPOV Band for our wedding reception! We asked them to bring the party and they did. There have been dozens of compliments on the band and people were dancing the entire time. I had high expectations for the music quality and they were exceeded. The singers were engaging, harmonies were tight, and the music behind them was always clean. Equally importantly, these were great people to deal with from months before the wedding to after the reception. I really can't recommend this band highly enough.Sent on 10/06/2018

Carl and OPOV were so great to work with! Very professional. They contacted the venue and had everything set up and ready to go prior to the event. They played a variety of music from 80's rock to new country and lots of fun stuff in between! They did a great job of involving the crowd and keeping the flow of the party going!Sent on 07/30/2018

OPOV was the perfect addition to our special day! They were fun, upbeat and extremely talented - from the vocalists to the musicians! My husband and I (as well as our guests) LOVED how interactive they were with the audience. They played a lot of upbeat songs based on the genres we chose for our big day and were pleased with all that they did to ensure our day was fun and engaging for everyone. We had so many friends/family asking who the band was and how they could book them for upcoming weddings and were happy to recommend Sam Thomas and the rest of the OPOV band as well as EastCoast Entertainment (Hunter Lawley). We can't thank OPOV enough for making our day simply perfect.Sent on 06/20/2018

The band as a whole and each member individually is amazing!! Where to even begin... all of our guests raved about how great they sounded. I am a wedding photographer so I've heard LOTS of bands and hands down OPOV is one of the best!! They have a great song list to keep guests on the dance floor! They were so agreeable and helped me pull off this surprise party for my hubs. My husband loves bands and live music so it was very important for me to do this for him. The party was cocktail formal and The band really classed up the event. Their attire is spot on and I am beyond thankful for the energy they brought to my husbands 40th surprise bday party! I will forever book this band for any event that we host!Sent on 12/05/2017

OPOV Band was recommended to me by Hunter Lawley, at EastCoast Entertainment. After watching a couple videos of performances, they seemed pretty fun, so I decided I'd like to have them play at my wedding reception. I must say though, their live performance at the reception blew us all away! They learned requested songs for our first dance and the mother-son dance, and did an awesome job! All of our guests raved about how great the band was; their music selection, their friendliness, their professionalism. They were able to keep people on the dance floor, which is exactly what I hoped for. I highly recommend OPOV Band!!Sent on 12/06/2017
OPOV Band's reply:Kimberly, thanks a million for your great review. We had so much fun playing your reception. The crowd was absolutely wonderful. Omg, we all had a blast partying with your parents too. We loved your dad Kevin. It was just a great time. We would love to perform at yours or any of your friends and family next event .

This was the best decision we could’ve made for music entertainment. OPOV Band was Awesome! We’re planning to get them again in March for my Mother in law Birthday and Retirement party.Sent on 11/22/2017
OPOV Band's reply:Thanks Oletha for your wonderful response and for uploading some of the photos. We had great experiences playing for both the outside wedding ceremony and the reception in the huge outdoor tent. That was a first for us, but one we enjoyed and will never forget. We are glad that everyone enjoyed the Band. We enjoyed the crowd as well. Having your wedding on the Dry Fork Plantation was historic and we appreciate you giving us the honors to do the music for you. Call us again for your next event, we'd love to do it.

OPOV played for the City of Montevallo's Bicentennial Birthday bash. Over 6,000 people attended. Even three months later people are still raving about OPOV. They were energetic and brought an incredible vibe to the event. As the mayor of the city, I especially appreciated their professionalism and enthusiasm. I highly recommend this outstanding group!!Sent on 01/28/2018
OPOV Band's reply:Thanks Hollie for the great review. This was definitely one of our most memorable events in 2017. A big shout out to the people of Alabaster for their warm acceptance and hospitality to us. The event attendance was awesome. The crowd was very responsive and the car show was impeccable. We had a ball interacting with the vendors and they were so complimentary of our song selections for the event. It was great chemistry and a great time. We look forward to being Alabaster's band for your events.
