    Very accommodating!

    The music is beautiful, exactly the right volume, and they make the evening really fun! But above and beyond that, I made some pretty outrageous request for accommodation for my son’s wedding. They bent over backwards to give me everything I wanted. I wish I could give them 10 stars for flexibility.

    Ultimate in professional entertainment

    Shining Star provided the ultimate experience in every way. Not only the music which was fantastic but also helping to lay out all aspects of the event from timing to other ideas to make the experience truly special for the bride, groom, their families, the wedding party and all guests. Memories are created by special experiences and Shining Star helped create lasting memories!

    Book them now, you won't regret it!

    Shining Star Band is the BEST! They performed at one of the dinners during our corporate conference and they were the perfect fit. They played a wide variety of music that appealed to people of all ages, they were so much fun to watch and they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. We will definitely be booking them again!

    The Absolute BEST!!!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jodi and the Shining Star Band. We saw them live at a hotel and we knew right away we wanted to book them for our wedding. Jodi was amazing through the entire planning process - she worked with us and our parents to make sure everyone was happy. She organized ceremony music and cocktail hour music on top of organizing absolutely all our reception music. She was incredibly flexible and willing to work with us for all our wild requests. They have an extensive song list to choose from. We starred some songs and they made an amazing compilation for the reception. Jodi was also an incredible "MC" for the night, introducing everyone and getting us smoothly through our night.
    And the energy they brought to the reception.... is literally infectious. I cannot recommend them enough. If you are not sure about going with a band.. go see Shining Star play live around the city and you won't ever doubt again!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all you did!!!!

The hora was a blast, and it was wonderful to see you all partying on the dance floor. Thank you for allowing us to be the soundtrack for the beginning of your new and exciting lives together! Please come out and see us, stay in touch and Mazel Tov again!

    Best Band Ever

    Choosing to go with Shining Star Band was easily one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding. It’s been months and people are STILL talking about how amazing they were! Jodi was an absolute delight to work with, always responding very quickly and made me feel like everything would be handled perfectly (and it was). They kept everybody dancing and singing all night long which is all we really wanted. I truly could not recommend them more highly, they are exceptional!!

    A great job at my daughter's wedding

    They played my daughter's wedding. The dance floor was packed the entire night right to the finish. The band took the time to learn a song that they had not played before for my daughter and I to dance to (which meant so much to me, I used to sing it to her when she was little). We all had a great time. Musically, they were tight and killed it.

    Best Day of Our Lives

    The band traveled to Sedona to help celebrate our wedding! This was the most magical day of our lives. Jodi and the band were engaging, fun, and excellent. There wasn’t a song where the dance floor was empty. I would recommend Shining Star to anyone who is looking for a live band with a great lead singer :) The only requirements which I believe are normal are: place to stay because of traveling, outlets for outside available, stage be built, dinner for entire band. If you want a live band and not a dj book them now!

    Highly Recommend

    Can't say enough positive things about the Shining Star Band! We were lucky enough to see them perform at Ocean Club before our wedding and booked them immediately after.

    Jodi performed during our ceremony and even learned a few songs that we requested to make our day even more special! The band has a variety of songs, which is great for engaging audiences of all ages! The band was also willing to play specific recorded songs that we requested during their break. Highly recommend hiring this band for your event!

    Amazing Wedding Band!

    We are so happy that we hired Shining Star Band to play our wedding. Jodi was so personable from the start, and made us feel like our wedding was her priority (even though we knew she obviously had others booked!). They learned our first dance song, which was very important to us. Jodi served as an emcee for the night and worked well with our planner, which took all the pressure off of us to make sure the night's schedule flowed smoothly. So many of our guests told us after our wedding, "The band was awesome!" which was great to hear, and they had people dancing all night. If only we could have had the night go on for longer so we could continue dancing. Jodi even helped me find a musician for our ceremony, which made my planning so much easier. Thank you, Shining Star!

    Awesome first class band!

    Jody and her Shinning Star Band made our wedding complete. All who attended were thoroughly impressed with the groups talent and professionalism. Jody’s years of experience and love of music was obvious and our guests shared the sentiments. The dance floor was filled with happy dancers young and old throughout the night! Jody also arranged for a rock IDOL to perform a few song.... White Wedding was a hit! Jody rocks!

    Jodi was phenomenal and helped out so much. She was always responsive and gave us great ideas for the reception.

    Skip the idea of a DJ, spend the money and make for a fun enjoyable and unforgettable evening. This is a great band, with lots of variety for your event. Go with the base set or add a few more pieces really helps to bring quality and character to your evening. From dinner to late night, they knew exactly how to increase the tempo/energy as the night got moving. Your guest will love them as will you. Jodi knows how to MC the evening as well and to help keep the night running smooth. My brother for his wedding had Shinning Star perform....I was so impressed that a few years later when I got married I knew exactly who I wanted. Well worth the money, very professional great to work with, you can not go wrong.

    If Shining Star is available, don't hesitate to book them. They played for my son's wedding and relatives I never dreamed would even get up out of their chairs, rocked the dance floor all evening... including me! Great memories we'll have forever!!!
