Royal Dukes Austin
I will make this short ... EVERY guest at our wedding came up to us after our reception to tell us the Royal Dukes were beyond fantastic and the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. Our guests were on the dance floor all night long. My legs are still sore. Of course, I took full credit for making the decision to hire them. And go with the 8-piece band if you can - the horns are worth it.Sent on 02/25/2020

What an incredible band!
My husband and I got married on September 28, 2019 at The Belmont in Austin, Texas. Given that we were getting married at a music venue, we were really set on a finding a great band to feature at the wedding (cue: Royal Dukes Band). I was struck by their combination of affordability and quality - everyone seemed to have loved working with them. AND SO DID WE. I worked with Amy in the months leading up to the wedding. She was friendly, relatable, creative, and fun, which made the process of wedding planning super enjoyable. What's even better though was the band itself, which also included Amy as the lead singer! They brought contagious energy and stellar vocals, and they knew exactly how to work the crowd the whole night - the dance floor was packed. Thanks to Amy and the Royal Dukes Band for making our wedding extra magical - 10's across the board!Sent on 10/21/2019
Royal Dukes Band's reply:Thank you for the kind words, William! We loved working with you and performing for you and your guests to make your special day magical. Wishing you both all of the best in your marriage!

Definitely hire the Royal Dukes!
I can't say enough about how wonderful the Royal Dukes were at our wedding! The whole process was super easy - we worked with Eundo and everything at the wedding was spot on, even the songs we requested to be played on the breaks while the band wasn't playing. They were so much fun and I felt like they were genuinely having a good time up there along with our guests. They were just good vibes and nice people which is what I'm all about. And the voices - oh man! The musicians were top notch and booking them was super affordable. My background is in music and we wanted it to be a big part of our day and the Royal Dukes was just a perfect fit. Thank you guys so much for being so awesome!Sent on 02/25/2020

Kept Everyone Dancing
We booked Royal Dukes on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed! Evan was easy to work with and super responsive. I was thrilled with the flexibility they provided in terms of the size of the band we were wanting and the jazz trio was the perfect addition to cocktail hour. Everybody had a blast the night of!Sent on 02/23/2020

They were the best
Royal Dukes was INCREDIBLE. So, so talented and so, so nice. I talked to so many bands before I found them and was giving up on booking such an incredible band that would fit into my budget. It is kind of mind boggling what you get for their affordable price point. I even talked to a couple DJs who weren't all that much cheaper. But, truly, they were great. All of the guests loved them and they were able to accommodate all of our song requests - even a weird mash-up between a piano sonata and Hey Ya! to surprise my dad with during our dance. Incredible.Sent on 02/25/2020

We have worked with Royal Dukes Band many many times over the years in the wedding industry. We are always so pleased with their professionalism. They are easy to work with from beginning to end. Evan is always so attentive and helpful. Our couples have never had any problems & are always thrilled with how their wedding went. The dance floor is always packed & the team at Royal Dukes are always willing to help & do whatever it takes to make the night memorable. We are so thankful for them!Sent on 01/25/2020

We had an 8 piece band play at our daughter's Christmas wedding reception in Houston. They were absolutely amazing!!! Played Jazz during the cocktail hour, Jazz and Christmas music mixed (as requested) during dinner, sung father/daughter, mother/son dance songs, and kept everyone dancing all night during the reception. Caleb, Nacoya, and Hugo were our singers; Caleb was also our MC. Again, OUTSTANDING!! The horns section and the rest of the band, phenomenal!! The band truly exceeded our expectations!! I booked and communicated through Jon. He was so easy to work with and very patient answering the million questions I asked him. He listened to any concerns I had and put my mind at ease. We had a few special requests we ask for and Jon made everything happen with no problems what so ever. He was also very helpful deciding what songs should be played during introductions and breaks. People raved all night about how awesome the band was!! I would highly recommend this band!Sent on 01/11/2020

We knew the Royal Dukes Band was good, but WOW! They catered to all of our guests and just about everyone, young and old, was on the dance floor. We had about 220 attend and about 85% were dancing the night away. Thank you, Royal Dukes Band. :)Sent on 11/18/2019

We had a fantastic experience with the Royal Dukes! Communication leading up to the day was timely and professional. The music was fantastic and the vocalist, Sarah, was an excellent MC! This band knocked our wedding out of the park! Highly recommend this group - book them!Sent on 06/24/2019

So talented and so much fun!!
Could not speak more highly of Royal Dukes! Evan is flawless in the planning, worked with our budget, and knew exactly which band was perfect for us! The band was so polite and so incredibly talented. My wife and I had a 5 piece band with Gordon as the lead singer and MC. They brought the party we always wanted. They sounded like a 10 piece band and made people that don't usually dance have an incredible time on the dance floor! Do yourself a favor and hire them. Affordably priced and a pure delight to work with.Sent on 06/22/2019
Royal Dukes Band's reply:Thanks, Pamela, you're too sweet and were a pure delight to work with as well! We had so much fun bringing the party to your wedding!

Fun and fabulous!
The band made our wedding night extra fun! We heard so many compliments about them from our guests for days after the event! They sounded great, brought the energy, and had everyone dancing the whole night! They were also very professional and responsive leading up to the wedding and had a helpful client portal that I could add different notes and preferences and schedules too whenever I wanted. I am so grateful for The Royal Dukes and all their help in making my wedding the best party and hope you choose them for a wedding of your dreams!Sent on 06/11/2019

Hire them - best band
WOW!!! I have no words to describe how completely blown away we were by the amazingness of the band. As a destination wedding, we never had a chance to visit their showcase but booked based off of the demos online and the reviews. We heard them for the first time on the wedding day and they sounded absolutely amazing and our dance floor was packed the whole night. The band MCed our entire night and never missed a beat. Every song we wanted was played and played extremely well. Our wedding party decided to coordinate a flash dance and Royal Dukes helped make it happen! All of our guests kept commenting on how beautiful the ceremony guitarist played and sung. I highly recommend that you book Royal Dukes - they will make your event so much fun and one to remember for years to come. Special shoutout to Marc Martinez for helping us coordinate everything.Sent on 06/07/2019
Royal Dukes Band's reply:Laura, we're so glad you made the leap of faith in choosing us for your wedding solely based on demos and reviews. Definitely a night to remember - especially that flash dance! Thank you for this awesome review. We are so glad we made your special day a memorable one!

It was a party!
We LOVED the Royal Dukes Band. They put on quite the performance at our wedding and played the perfect mix to get everyone engaged and on the dance floor. Everyone in the band, from the brass players to the guitarists to the vocalists did an outstanding job and were full of life and full of energy. It felt like they were part of the party! Amy was wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding and very responsive to questions and helped in prompting our plans. She thought of things that we didn't even think of! All together, our wedding day went perfectly and many of our guests said the band was the best part! Also- shoutout to Wednesday and Micah for their amazing singing. We highly recommend them!Sent on 05/26/2019

Best wedding band ever!
BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!!!! I had a lot of super specific requests and they nailed every single one. They were all so nice and everyone just had the best time! We had a 7-piece and at one point the sax player came out onto the dance floor to play - it was great! So much energy!Sent on 02/16/2019
Paige Patterson · Married on 01/03/2019
So much fun
We adored the Royal Dukes Band! It was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding to hire them! Worth every penny, and a huge value for the energy and expertise they bring. Jon was SO great at getting all the details pinned down before hand on what we wanted our wedding to feel like. And, when (like every wedding) the schedule got a little off the mark on the day of, they did a great job of just knowing what music to play and exactly how to keep the energy up in the reception. Every single guest LOVED them, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the way our reception was handled by the band!Sent on 05/11/2019

Excellent pricing + flawless execution
BOOK THEM NOW! Do not think any longer. Their pricing + quality of service and execution was absolutely flawless.Sent on 01/11/2019
They made our wedding ceremony and reception so special. Amy (manager + talented singer) was so kind and patient throughout the process. I could not have hoped for it to go any smoother.
Amy actually met me for coffee early in the planning process + spent some time on the phone making sure I was comfortable and happy. Her input meant the world to me and I am so fortunate to have Royal Dukes play for my wedding. Everyone was raving about Sam (lead singer) and Chris (lead singer). They are beautiful people and beyond talented musicians. Royal Dukes were beyond my expectations. My heart was so happy at the end of the night. It is everything I could have hoped for and more. BOOK THEM NOW!
