    Fantastic Band!

    Our guests are still talking about how good this band was at our wedding reception. Also the BEST to work with and plan! They performed perfectly from dinner through dancing, and really kept the party going the entire night. I’ve also attended other parties where they’ve performed and they are consistently awesomely accomplished performers.

    Amazing Band!

    This is the second time this band has played for our family’s weddings, and we cannot say enough wonderful things about them! They keep your guests dancing till the very end and have a vast variety of genres to sing. They are amazing!

    The Pictures Band's reply:

    Congratulations Amanda! Wow what a night! We have only done one other wedding this year where we got to do both weddings for the same family, so it means the world to us with the trust you have shown in us! I hope you liked a couple of the behind the scenes pics I sent :) Happy New Year and Thank you so much again!

    I've never seen my company dance like this!

    I hired this band for an engineering company release party at the JW Marriot in San Antonio. I have NEVER seen engineers dance their butts off like they did that night!! The band was beyond professional and had a contagious energy that infected everyone in the banquet hall. We had roughly 500 adults dancing for hours. The crowd didn't want to leave, and the band played an extra 15-20 minutes before giving a gentle nudge to the crowd that the night was over by playing some slower music to end the night. I loved working with them, as they were flexible and I had enough other things to worry about. Thank you so much for making our corporate event a grand success!!

    we booked the 8 piece band

    That is Awesome Katie! Everyone is so over the moon about how happy you all were! I loved the remark "NEVER SEEN ENGINEERS DANCE THEIR BUTTS OFF LIKE THEY DID"! I so very much appreciate you taking the time to write a review. I know you are very busy and it means the world to us! Maybe we can do it all again for another party sometime soon!
    It was Epic and we all had such a Blast! Thank You!

    You have to have the Pictures Band at your wedding!

    We could not have been happier with our decision to have the Pictures Band play at our wedding! From the very beginning, they were so responsive to all of our questions and extremely easy to communicate with. Their song list is excellent, and they had our guests dancing all night. If I could give the Pictures Band 10 stars, I would!!! We absolutely loved them!!

    The Pictures Band's reply:

    The 10 star compliment is Awesome!!!!
    Thank You Stacy so very much! #Grateful
    Do our best to go the extra mile learning songs (private dance surprise!) etc and to be there when you need me, so thanks for that as well :) One of the band's biggest goals is keeping all the guests dancing! It is both a Science And so much Fun at the same time! Y'all were such a lovely couple to work with so it's mutual!!

    The Best Band!

    We could not recommend The Pictures enough! Not only were they super easy to work with (responded to my questions in a timely manner) but they were such a hit throughout the night! I have received so may comments about how great our band was. They really kept the dance floor going all night long and made such a special night so much fun!

    Can't Go Wrong With the Pictures!!

    The Pictures have played for a lot of dances, parties, and weddings I've been a part of over the years, so I knew they were an easy and perfect decision for my wedding. My whole family loves them! From the very beginning Byron was extra friendly and responsive ~ so helpful in getting things going. Because they've been solid for years too they were flawless in working with my venue. The Pictures were professional in planning and then awesome and fun on our big day. Kept the dance floor going till the very end. I highly recommend them!!

    Thank you Erin so very much for the awesome compliments! My own personal goal is to make your dreams come to true as best I can. The band is also always trying to go the extra mile to better in every department we can think of :) Grateful is the word that comes to mind the most for you hiring us! We really appreciate it it!!!

    The Pictures were absolutely amazing! We had family and friends travel from all over the country for our wedding in Austin. The one common denominator was everyone told us they LOVED our band. We didn’t have a set song list. The Pictures read the crowd perfectly and did not disappoint. Great energy...Great band...Great night! Don’t look anywhere else. We saw a few Texas based bands while we were looking and nobody compared to The Pictures.. trust me.. I did a lot of searching.

    Not only did they sound amazing but they were also very responsive and accommodating in the days leading up to the wedding. It was a pleasure working with them!

    I cannot say enough good things about The Pictures Band! They were fantastic, easy to work with, great music and kept everyone dancing all night. Two friends have already inquired/booked them for their daughters wedding after attending our daughters wedding. We LOVED them and hated to see the night end!

    Hi Holly!!!! Congratulations on such a wonderful wedding! So thrilled you were happy with our performance and service! We are grateful that your two other friends have inquired to book us as well! We very much appreciate that because we primarily work from word of mouth! Once again, thank you so very much for your faith in us to keep your guests entertained throughout the night! - Byron

    The Pictures performed at our wedding in Houston, Texas on June 30, 2018. They are without a doubt 5 star performers. Their energy, sound, professionalism are flawless. Byron would reply to my emails within MINUTES. I am so happy we were able to book them because I can not imagine the night with any other band. Thank you guys so much! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

    I knew I wanted to have no other band other than The Pictures for our reunion. I was not disappointed. Everyone had a GREAT time. They are all still talking on social media about how much fun it was to have The Pictures. You can't go wrong with booking them!!!

We so very much appreciate getting to be a part of your special event! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

    Wow. Where do I start? this is our second time to have The Pictures Band play at a family event. They were great the first time around and just completely blew us away at my son's wedding recently!! They played a tremendous variety of music and did it all incredibly well and we've heard rave reviews from every generation of guests at our wedding. The wedding party and guests danced the night away and just were like energizer bunnies jumping up and down to the music!!!
    My daughter loved them enough to book them for her wedding coming up in 2 months.....
    Not only are they great musicians and entertainer's but really truly nice and service minded people. Just so easy to work with and a pleasure to be around. YOU WILL BE INCREDIBLY PLEASED WITH THIS BAND .
    Bravo and thank you Byron and the band !!!

    They are so much fun! We had them for both our engagement party and wedding. They honestly sound better than most of the original versions. They can play anything and everything, it seems like.

    We cannot say enough good things about The Pictures Band. In fact, our family and friends are still talking about how amazing they were at our wedding...and we got married over 50 days ago! They were kind, professional, energetic, quick to respond, so much fun...and exceptionally talented. They nailed our first dance song, kept the dance floor crowded the entire night and played such a wide, entertaining range of songs. We absolutely loved The Pictures Band and cannot wait for someone in our family or circle of friends to get married soon so we can have The Pictures Band play again! Thank you, Byron and band, for making our wedding reception so fantastic!

    What can I say?! The Pictures were flat out amazing! My wedding was this past weekend and everyone was raving about how great the band was. The dance floor was packed for all their sets and I couldn’t have asked for a better party/wedding.

    One added plus was I mentioned the song my dad and I wanted to dance to; the band didn’t know it, but learned it just for my wedding. How amazing is that?!

    If you are looking for a phenomenal band that will get all your guests out on the dance floor, look no further. I highly recommend The Pictures to everyone!

    I have been to a couple of weddings with The Pictures Band prior to my wedding and when I started planning I knew exactly what band I was going to book. I was so excited when they were available for my wedding and I officially had them booked. Where do I begin, we had a 10 piece band and they are seriously worth every penny. All of our guest were ranting and raving about how amazing they were. They play a little bit of everything from different genres to different time periods. They are very energetic and so much fun! If you are planning a wedding in Texas and are looking for a band. The Pictures Band is the band to book!!! Byron Smith their manager is also really great to work with too and is very nice! Hands Down the best experience with The Pictures Band.

    We booked The Pictures for my daughter's wedding and are so happy we did - it was the perfect choice. I had attended another wedding where they played and knew they were a great band. My daughter and son-in-law wanted a wider range of music from country to current and I wasn’t sure if they would be a good fit but they were fantastic. They are so versatile and their play list is very extensive. They were easy to work with throughout the whole process – it was obvious they wanted to help make the event exactly what the bride and groom wanted. Throughout the evening and since the wedding, guests keep talking about the great band. They kept the energy high the entire evening and the dance floor was full until the end of the wedding – I know everyone would have enjoyed more time. I can’t say enough great things about this band – they helped set the tone for the wedding and kept it fun all night long!

    Thank You Dana so very much for your kind words! Emily and you had such great vision of exactly what you wanted it to look like. We try and listen closely and realized that being a beautiful barn style wedding, we wouldn't use our big 'concert' lighting (lasers , snow etc). That really made for such a perfect look throughout the room! I was so happy to hear such a clear ideas of what you all wanted and we were happy to help do our part. Also, we added a fiddle to create the barn dance feeling and wow that was so FUN!!! The Photos are AMAZING!!! Thanks again for your wonderful words! We sure appreciate it!

    Loved having The Pictures be apart of our wedding day! What attracted us to them was their broad range of music - from country, to pop, to oldies -- we wanted something all our guests would enjoy. It was hard to find a band that did everything PLUS country, and this band was it! They were even able to add a fiddle player. Byron was THE most accommodating and truly wanted to make sure my vision came to life, and it did -- They sounded great, looked great, and on top of it all were just such nice people! Everyone was on the dance floor having a good time the whole night --
    Would most definitely recommend The Pictures to anyone.

    There are not enough words to express how AMAZING The Pictures were at our wedding! Every single guest has come up to me at one point or another since the wedding and mentioned that the best part of the entire wedding was the band. We had an extra long reception because it was a New Year's Eve wedding and the energy never dipped for a second because The Pictures kept everyone rocking and on the dance floor all night long! I can't recommend them enough to anyone looking for a band that can get anyone on the dance floor and bring the energy to any event. They were just absolutely AMAZING and completely accommodating to any of our last minute changes or requests! If you are going back and forth on booking them, just go ahead and do it right now, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you to The Pictures for making our wedding everything we could have dreamed of and more!!!!
