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.
Congratulations again!!! Wow, what a wonderful compliment! We sure do appreciate your family and had such a great time working on this wedding together. You are so sweet and hope to see y'all again for another party sometime in the near future! Maybe one of your bridesmaids :)
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.
Hi Emily! Thanks so very, very much for the incredibly sweet things you had to say! We are grateful for you having us and had a great time with all of you dancing the night away!! It was also very fulfilling to see your dream come to life as the details all came together like they did! I really enjoyed that too!!! Thanks again so much!!!
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!!!!
Wow!!! We had a such a wonderful time giving you all a great show and enjoyed every moment of it! We appreciate getting to perform for you all! Thank you so very, very much Tori and Becca!
The Pictures Band played for our daughter's wedding and they were absolutely FABULOUS! From our first contact via telephone and email, they were responsive, eager to help and excited to deliver. We booked the 8 piece band that included 2 horns. They played wonderful dinner music and then all the hits during the reception. There was great energy and our guests danced all night long and everyone commented on how fantastic they were. They delivered 100% and we couldn't be any happier and highly recommend them. Thank you so very much! OUTSTANDING!
Thank You Nadine for such a warm and wonderful review! We enjoyed working with you and very much appreciate your confidence in hiring us! Hope to see you again at another party sometime!
I first saw The Pictures Band 14 years ago when they played at my brothers wedding and they were so fantastic and so memorable that I didn't even have to think twice when it came time for me to pick a wedding band for my wedding. Their performance at my wedding was beyond outstanding. The wedding guests were impressed and intrigued by the band within 30 seconds of playing their first song. I've never been to a wedding where all the guests swarmed to the dance floor before the meal was even served. The Pictures kept the guests dancing ALL night long, all the way up until the last second of the last song. I could not have been more pleased and impressed with this band and they were worth every penny. I am forever grateful for their hard work and amazing job they did. My wedding was perfect and complete because of them! I had 214 people at my wedding and all 214 people reached out to me or my family asking for the bands card and their name and EVERYONE raved about how amazing they are.
Arianna Thank You So Much!
You and Kyle were so gracious and we appreciate your wonderful compliments!
I know we were on Instagram together for awhile and I was looking forward to getting to meet you in person at the reception! You were all so fun with dancing so early on that I remember we took a break just so they would sit down and eat-ha! What a wonderful compliment!
I will pass this along to the band and Thank You again! It was a blast working with you!
Y’all. This band. Hire them and hire them quickly – they are AMAZING! Our wedding was October 21st and we just got back from our 2 week honeymoon. If you want your dance floor to be packed to the brim at all times – this is your band.
From the very beginning, music was one of the few things my fiancé and I were particular about with regards to the wedding, and we were willing to splurge on this element.
During our search, we went and saw two different bands in the same week. After we saw the first band, we were feeling really good about them and agreed that our minds were all but made up - the second band (which was The Pictures) would have to completely blow us out of the water if we were to change our minds. WELL, we got in the car after watching The Pictures perform, and my fiancé looked at me and said ‘so, The Pictures it is then.’ They were incredible - high energy, interactive, and clearly had a knack for reading the crowd. The lead singer, Chris, truly has the ability to sound exactly like every single artist he performs. It’s insane.
Beyond the obvious fact that they’re great at what they do, they were unbelievably easy to work with. Byron was my main point of contact and he was so responsive and helpful every step of the way. The contract and terms were simple and transparent (no hidden fees or costs), and the price point is incredibly reasonable for the quality of the performance you get.
The Pictures will interact with you all night. From inviting my husband and I onto the stage to jumping down onto the dance floor to mingle with the guests – they were entertaining at every turn. SO GOOD!
Oh my goodness Whitney, Thank You So Much for that very thoughtful review! Wow, you really made all our day! We really try to go the extra mile and make your special day the Best! Everything about your day was so memorable and unique! We had a blast!
THE BEST WEDDING BAND I COULD HAVE EVER ASKED FOR!!!! THEY ARE SOOOO ORGANIZED AND PROFESSIONAL. THEY KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO PLEASE A CROWED. I DO NOT RECALL 2 MINUTES OF MY RECEPTION THAT THE DANCE FLOOR WAS EMPTY!!!! THEY HAD OUR GUEST DANCING NONSTOP! I WOULDN'T EVEN LOOK ANY FURTHER, THE PICTURES ARE THE WAY TO GO! TRUST ME!
Wow! Thanks so very much Julia! It was fun from start to end for sure. Your planning was excellent too! We sure appreciate your having us and hope to see you at another event! Maybe a brides maid will get married and we can see you again! :)
The Pictures Band was AMAZING!! They truly made our wedding reception incredible and everyone was raving about how great they were after. They were professional, accommodating, and did a fabulous job of making our big day one to remember forever! I would give them 10 stars if I could and look forward to working with them again for future events.
Hi Caroline! :) Thank you for that incredible review! Making you happy on your special day and helping fulfill your 'recipe' is our goal! We really enjoyed working with your family again too!!!!
I originally heard The Pictures at a wedding in 2011. I was a young high school senior and told my parents that night "no matter when I get married, I want them to play at my wedding." Well jump 6 years later, right when my husband proposed I said "we have to plan our wedding around The Pictures." We then went to Austin a few times to listen to them. We were absolutely hooked and my husband was just as smitten as I was in 2011. July 29th, 2017 came (our wedding day) and The Pictures played and it was more than I ever imagined. I cannot recommend them enough! If you want to have "The Wedding of The Year", The Pictures are required to play. They are great to work with and make the reception more enjoyable than the mac & cheese and cake!
Wow, Thank you so much Brittany for that incredible story. We so appreciate hearing that you planned your wedding date around us and we are so proud and grateful to have been your band!!! :)
The Pictures did an amazing job at our wedding. From the very beginning, we knew we had nothing to worry about, as Byron was incredibly responsive to all of my questions and very flexible with me while working through the scheduling. As the day drew closer, Byron took the time to give me advice on how to time the events at the reception and really calmed my nerves.
Our guests were raving about our band, The Pictures, the entire night and because of them, we have converted several family members and friends who previously believed that a DJ is the only way to go for a reception.
If you are on the fence about whether or not to book a band, I would definitely advocate for The Pictures! They carried the show (pun intended) and made our reception a party! It is clear that they are experts at what they do and you can relax knowing that the entertainment is taken care of.
10/10 will book The Pictures for any future event where we need live musical entertainment. Thank you guys, again, for being part of our day and celebrating with us!
Wow! Thank you so much Adrienne for such a vote of confidence! We appreciate you hiring us and try to go the extra mile to give you memorable WOW moments! Also, thank you for the personal compliment. This has been my career for most of my life and is my passion to work closely with you and find that perfect 'recipe' that will make your night very special! Thank you so much!!! :)
The Pictures are a magnificent band! The entire process from booking them to the night of the reception was an enjoyable experience. From the first dance to the last dance the dance floor was packed. Definition of a successful wedding reception: When the bride's 6 year old cousin and her 95 year old great aunt are dancing on the dance floor at the same time. Also, I loved the surprise bubble show at the end of the night! Thanks so much Byron and the band for making our night so wonderful!
Thank YOU Carson for having us for your very special day! Your compliments and descriptions make my heart very Happy! We are grateful!!!!!
We loved our entire experience - the band is so wonderful to work with and they absolutely bring the party!! We have gotten multiple inquiries about who our "AMAZING BAND" was. If you're looking for a wedding band, you've found your perfect option in The Pictures!! :)
Hi Andi :) We appreciate your taking the time to do this review and want you to know we were honored and excited to be the band on your special day! Really Incredible! Love the picture of you both raised on the chairs during the hora. It was absolutely beautiful!
Our guests had nothing but GREAT things to say about these guys. They were fantastic and kept the dance floor full all night. One note - they have specific meal requests (gluten-free and vegetarian), so just be prepared to satisfy those. They are detailed in the rider they provide.
Thanks so much for the perfect 5 star review. Our celiac and vegetarian are easily handled w a simple meat and veggies plate and just any veggies you may be serving. You do not have to order special for us. Thanks again for your nice review :)
Having already seen the Pictures perform before, booking them for our wedding was a no-brainer. They not only play just about every genre of music you can think of, they play them all extremely well. Super accommodating, and helped make our night unforgettable!
THANK YOU NICK!!! We so appreciate getting to perform for you and pleasing you and your bride, family and guests too!!!!
The Pictures Band is INCREDIBLE! They just played at our son's wedding and I can't even begin to tell you how good they were! Everyone loved them and kept asking who they were! My husband summed it up perfectly, he said "we heard them several years ago at another family members wedding and they were great, BUT they are even BETTER NOW!" You will NOT be disappointed if you choose The Pictures Band! Best wishes to the band, you helped make our family's special night even better!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank YOU!!! :)
We are grateful and sure do appreciate you having us!
We have attended many weddings over the last several years. The Pictures are by far the best band we found. Very talented musicians, excellent vocals with broad range. They were a pleasure to work with and connected with our group. Cannot say enough good about this group.
Thanks John :)
We sure appreciate it!!!
INCREDIBLE band - dance floor was full and guests are still talking about how much fun they had!! Byron is awesome to work with. Very upbeat person and quick responder.
Thank you so very much!!!!!
The Pictures did a fabulous job at our wedding. Aside from being very easy to coordinate with leading up to the event (we had a planner, Ren Newey of 36th Street Events...but we had corresponded with the band ourselves as well), their performance this past Saturday night was *stellar*. I've lost track of the number of guests that walked up to me to comment about how fabulous the band was (or to ask who the band was / how we found them / giving various kudos).
They were very high energy (not spastic, but just upbeat and fired up in an infectious way) and really played every song superbly from start to finish. There was definitely no 'phoning it in' going on here; these guys (and gal) must be exhausted after a show like this. We looked at a number of bands that seemed great as well, but many of them specialized in a given type of music: exclusively Motown, Sinatra-type stuff, etc. The Pictures were incredibly versatile -- their catalog draws from old and new, and many styles. We would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone needing a versatile band with a very broad appeal that will be sure to infuse the event with excitement and great music.
Thank You so very much Corbett!!!!! We surely appreciate your wonderful review and really had a great time with you all too!! That's is part of the secret sauce.... You have to thoroughly enjoy being there and sharing that wonderful special energy! :) Thank you again!
I first heard The Pictures at my cousin's wedding in 2014. I not only enjoyed their entertainment, but my cousin recommended them without hesitation and could not stop raving about how much all of their guests loved them and how wonderful they were to work with. As soon as we found out they were available for our wedding date, we booked them without giving it a second thought! The Pictures absolutely made our wedding reception as fun as it was. The dance floor was full the entire night due to their expansive setlist and engaging performance. Byron was wonderful to work with as well! He was very quick to respond to any questions or requests that I had. He was so kind throughout the entire planning process and was always available to speak on the phone or via email to talk through any sort of logistics for the evening to ensure that the night was exactly what we wanted it to be. They even tailored their setlist for the evening to certain genres/categories per our request. We asked them to learn our favorite song and they did so without hesitation - and did a great job performing it! Since our wedding, we have heard from so many of our guests about how much they enjoyed The Pictures and that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. I would recommend The Pictures to anyone! If you're looking for a band that will get all of your guest on the dance floor, no matter what age (my grandma has not stopped talking about how great they are!), then look no further than The Pictures!
Thank you so very much Abby!!! We had a blast and looked like the entire room was up and dancing all night!! It was wonderful and easy working with you and I so appreciate everything!!!
Great band, will hire them again for another event without second thought!
Thank you so very much!!! :)
The Pictures played our wedding at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort this weekend and it was truly the icing on the cake! The entire time they performed no one left our dance floor! They put on a great show and are so fun to interact with that our guests are still raving about them. We went with all 10 guys (horns and all) and it brought everyone to their feet. Their website does not do them justice, they are THAT good!
That is so incredibly nice! We sure appreciate it!!! :)
Best Vendor of my Wedding!!
If I could have only selected one vendor for my wedding, this would have been it. The Pictures single-handledly made the evening an unforgettable party for everyone there! Extremely interactive, great at reading the crowd, and highly talented as well. Played an impressive set, ranging from former decades to current top hits. Byron (the liaison/band member that we dealt with during the planning) was so incredibly friendly, and also quite helpful when we asked for advice. Also, the band was more than happy to learn a new song for our first dance (and did a great job performing it!). Truly excellent. This, hands down, will be your best purchase if you select them for your event.
Thank YOU so very much!!! :)
We sure do appreciate your review and Congratulations again!!!
When we first got engaged, the first call we made was to The Pictures to see if they were available. We had seen them perform before and knew we wanted to have them for our wedding.
The Pictures Band is a professional band at a highly reasonable price. I honestly believe that the band could charge double for their talent and entertainment value. They do a wide variety of music, and they are very good at it! My grandparents loved the old-school, classic music for dinner and then my friends loved the upbeat music for dancing. This band is so very talented and really made the evening amazing. They even learned our first dance song on their own. It was not on their set list, but they took the time to learn the song and executed it flawlessly. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! :)
The Pictures were outstanding! They got everyone to dance at our wedding: guests of all ages, guests who normally don't dance, etc. Repeatedly, the first thing people said after our wedding was, "Your wedding was wonderful, and the band was absolutely amazing!" I couldn't agree more. The band coordinator's responsiveness with planning before the wedding was great as well. I couldn't recommend The Pictures more, and I'm sure many of my friends will be using them in the future.
We very much appreciate that!!! :)
