If you consider yourself 'a music person' who loves music (and your guests do too) and having a quality band is a TOP priority to you, then look no further than The Pressure Lounge.Sent on 09/28/2016
We wanted a band that had solid musical skills (most important!), kept the wedding band cheese-factor to a minimum and would collaborate with us to develop a set list that our guests would know, love and dance to... but that still felt uniquely personalized by us. I did NOT want it to feel like a predictable wedding playlist! And of course, we wanted to cost to not break the bank. The Pressure Lounge exceeded our expectation on every level.
Josh made an effort to get to know us personally and really understand our music tastes (and our dislikes - I had a long list of 'do not play' songs!). My husband wanted a few New Orleans style funk/brass songs... so they brought on some horn players and learned a handful new songs for us. We wanted songs from the past five decades across all different genres and they played them all flawlessly. I wanted an obscure acoustic song that I love for our processional and without a question, Josh made it happen. We seriously pushed the boundaries and never found the end of their willingness to accomodate and do everything within their power to make our day amazing. Our guests were dancing nonstop the entire time and continue to rave about the band. What's more? After the wedding, Josh sent me a beautiful panoramic picture he had taken of our ceremony in progress after he was done playing the processional song. How sweet is that?!
I admit, I was reluctant at first because The Pressure Lounge itself didn't have the lengthy track record that other popular 'wedding bands' out there have... but I quickly learned that each band member is a total pro with expansive experience playing in other cover bands, I was sold.
I can honestly say selecting The Pressure Lounge was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Can't recommend this band enough!
