Requested for our gala every year!
We have used Undercover Live for our Gala fundraiser for the past three years and for other school events. They are great for all events and play music that everyone loves. Prior to booking them, we would have a different band each year, but now everyone requests we have them back!Sent on 04/16/2019

All our guests said "Best wedding band they'd ever seen!"
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Undercover Live. We booked their 10 person band, and they were absolutely incredible. The dance floor was electric and completely PACKED all night long. Even our parents friends did not get off the dance floor. From "Shout!" to "Good as Hell", there was a song for everyone, and all of our guests kept telling us that this was they "Best wedding band they had ever seen." They completely made our party!Sent on 12/02/2019

Undercover Live is an amazing band and they definitely know how to get the party started!!! We actually drove up to hear them play one weekend to see if they were the right fit for us...the minute they started to play and I heard Carla's voice, I knew they had play at my wedding! We met them after their set and George was super nice and helpful explaining the wedding planning process to us. Since we had very specific music requests and certain traditions for our big Jewish wedding, George was really helpful in making sure all of that happened! All of our guests were SO impressed with the band and had amazing things to say about their sound, energy and performance! The musicians were insanely talented and amazing and I cannot say enough about the singer's incredible voices. Carla, our MC, did an amazing job keeping the energy up throughout the entire night and she was so helpful in making sure that we got everything we wanted and needed. We had multiple correspondences with George and Carla before our wedding to make sure we were all on the same page. I recommend making sure that you are very clear and specific about anything regarding timing and songs. Overall, we are so happy we had Undercover Live play at our wedding and are so grateful for them making our wedding the best night of our lives!Sent on 02/09/2020

We got married on 9.28 and Undercover made the reception so fun!! They had high energy and played an amazing mix of songs and genres! They had every age group on the dance floor. Even after the night all the guests kept coming up to us telling us how fun and great the band was! It was an easy process from start to finish and could not recommend them more!Sent on 10/11/2019

Amazing band for wedding. Would hire for future events.
Talk of the post wedding brunch! Couldn’t get in a word before people saying, “Wow that band was amazing!” And....my now wife, has been to over 30 weddings and, although biased, can’t remember a better wedding band. We had 25 year olds to 75 year olds rocking out!!!Sent on 08/21/2019

The audience LOVED the band last weekend UNDERCOVER. Thank you for having the group bring out their finest musicians. I think we’ll have them back next year. I hardly ever receive feedback whether good or bad, but people were coming up to me all night saying they loved them.

Best decision we made !
Undercover Live was absolutely amazing! It’s been a week and all my friends and family keep talking about is how awesome they were. A live band was really important to me when I was planning and I am beyond happy with our decision. They’re a must book! We got the 8 piece band !Sent on 07/13/2019

Fun, Easy, Responsive & Entertaining!
Undercover live was a great source for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception!Sent on 07/15/2019
They are the whole package! They not only kept the reception and party going at a great pace, Carla the lead singer and Emcee was on top of the timeline. They provided a piano and sax for the ceremony and cocktail hour! They are a lot of fun and play a lot of genres to keep you entertained. I would highly recommend using them for your wedding or any event! They are very easy to work with!

We had a small wedding of 17 people and so we just requested a singer and keyboardist and it was just absolutely perfect. They were professional courteous made sure they were organized. The keyboardist did a great job and the singer Tina was just absolutely tremendous she did a phenomenal job and had a great voice. We would recommend them to anybody.Sent on 07/27/2019

Best wedding band!
I would definitely definitely definitely recommend Undercover Live! They are a prepared, detailed-oriented, and versatile band that helped make our wedding vision a reality. We had a PHENOMENAL experience with them!! George is so responsive and easy to work with, which makes a HUGE difference! He accommodated all of our needs and requests and worked with us every step of the way! Carla, the emcee, is AMAZING! She said everything we wanted her to say and was super enthusiastic and got the crowd excited! The whole band is super talented and everyone was dancing all night! Everyone complimented me on the band all night and are still talking about them. I looked at a lot of bands and Undercover live seemed the most reliable, affordable, and fun, and they lived up to that and more!! They played all kinds of songs including top hits from today which was so fun. They all know each other and you could tell their chemistry on stage. Also the light crew and sound checks were perfect. We also got a violinist through them who was perfect. I am so happy we chose them.Sent on 07/09/2019

Booking at Parq
We booked Undercover Live for a business event at Parq. They were excellent. Any band that can get our group dancing is worth having.Sent on 04/12/2019

Grilled Cheese Soundwich - a huge hit at our event!
We heard Grilled Cheese Soundwich at an event last summer, and loved their music. We booked them for an event last Saturday and couldn't have been happier! They engaged the crowd and were very energized!Sent on 03/23/2019

Hands Down Best Band in SoCal!
I wish I could just make this decision for you newly engaged brides! If you love music and are looking for a band I know how stressful it can be as you want to somewhat stick to a budget but also ensure all of your guests have the best dancing of their lives! Let me tell you---- Undercover Live was by far the best decision of our wedding!
I got a lot of grief for demanding a band from my soon to be father in law and family, but after seeing the reviews on websites and after getting a few more videos from George, I was so very confident! My planner had her own list of local bands but they were all missing something. Undercover stood out! And now my family and father in law all have gone out of their way to say that they were by far the best band they have ever heard at a wedding!
When George showed me their 7 person option I was sold! The lead singer was perfect for our desire to stretch genres such as motown songs to Pharrell to the Weeknd, the female Carla was a vocal powerhouse perfect for my requested Tina Turner's Proud Mary and could rock some Edna James or Katy Perry, and lastly my family is all from Georgia so we needed some Van Morrison and beachy vibes. Seriously this band can do it all!
Let me walk you through a few of the things to expect:
1) George is awesome and leads setting you all up. He provides you with a questionnaire early on to help you map out your day and songs you love/hate.
2) Any and all questions you need help answering George answers within a day max! Super impressive and appreciated!
3) A few months before the wedding you or your planners reach out for insurance, yes they have it, and also basic logistics- all of this goes super flawlessly.
4) A week or 2 before the event George schedules a call with you and your fiance. We talked through the questionnaire and he was so insanely nice to oblige our quirky requests. For example we didn't want a bridal party intro, we wanted our intro and first dance combined, and then we also were quite picky on music requests. He was so considerate and although you may think, sure they will hear those requests but something may go differently in translation. NOPE! He even let us send over a list of songs we loved from their list and seriously the band played ALL OF THEM! He was so nice he even asked ways to make the whole performance or Emcee'ing unique- such as sports shot outs or hometown phrases. They played Georgia by Ray Charles so amazingly later which was during dinner service that all the guests got up to dance before dancing was supposed to start! (My family and a lot of friends are from there).
5) A few days before the event Carla called me! I was so ecstatic at this point - she was going to be our Emcee so she wanted to be sure George had relayed all our requests and also make me feel at ease. Thank you soooooo very much Carla! She even felt me out on her outfit choices. SO nice! Above and beyond on this for sure!
6) Day of- wow! The band arrived all on time, 7 people in the band and a sound person. All the exact folks we requested a year prior, all wearing black and obliging our other request to wear white bow ties we gave them, and my planner LOVED them! They are now on her preferred vendor list because they are just so cool!
This is seriously a rare find- you have to book them! The dance floor was packed all night long! They told me they have all played together 14 years or something crazy. They could tell when people were tired or a slow song was needed and definitely knew how to ramp up the pace! The lead singers and the saxophone player all have wireless mikes so they were on the dance floor dancing with us! So cool! My husbands 97 year old grandma and all of our family was sooooo happy and loved all the music! They were impressed it wasn't the usual cheesy slide songs or chicken dances. Undercover Live can make your dreams come true and they truly made me and my husband's dreams come true on 2/16/19! We thank you all for your amazing talent and cannot wait to recommend you at other gala's we support in the community or friends' weddings too. Lots of love to each of you!

Best Wedding Band Ever!
Undercover Live took our wedding to the next level and made it a huge and magical success. George, Carla and the rest of the band absolutely nailed it; the music never stopped and the energy never left. The dancefloor spoke for itself - no one wanted to leave! Needless to say, feedback from our guests has been consistently "best wedding band ever" and "Undercover set the bar really high." In fact, multiple guests highlighted Undercover as not only their favorite element of the evening, but one of the best bands they've ever experienced at a wedding.Sent on 02/22/2019
From the word go, every detail was meticulously thought out, as though they were planning this event for their own families. Everything was handled so personally and professionally; we are beyond lucky to have been provided Undercover's knowledge and experience. They accommodated all our crazy requests and made sure we felt at ease through the whole engagement.
Thank you for Undercover for ensuring we have nothing but beautiful, amazing memories to last us our lifetime.

Fabulous group in every way!
Undercover Live made our wedding so much fun! From the music they selected to the energy they brought to the room it was perfect for our 250 person wedding. Our guests all said how good the band was and how much they enjoyed it. They even helped arrange a string trio for the ceremony which was beautiful.Sent on 02/13/2019
Undercover Live Entertainment's reply:Thank you Brifor the kind words! When you think of an elegant wedding yours was just that, so amazingly beautiful!! We appreciate you having Undercover Live perform for you and your guest. Wishing you and Carlos all the best wishes for your future together. Sincerely, The Undercover Live team

Look no further--you've found your wedding band!!!
Hiring Undercover Live! was BY FAR the best decision we made for our entire wedding! Best money spent in the wedding budget! Right off the bat, working with George was a dream. He was extremely responsive and attentive to any questions or requests we had. Leading up to the wedding, it was clear that George has everything covered--we didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to music.
And then our wedding day came, and WOW!!! Our guests can't stop raving about how excellent our band was, even three months later! Undercover Live! did it all--they incorporated music for everyone to enjoy and kept our dance floor jam-packed all night long. We could not be more impressed with their talent, their energy, and incredible performance. We were completely blown away by how amazing they were!!! Seriously, look no further--you have found the best wedding band BY FAR!!!Sent on 03/25/2019

This band made our wedding feel like it was a private concert. They engaged our guests, and everyone at our special day can't stop telling us how awesome the music was. Working with them felt as if we had known them all for years. They did an excellent job feeling the vibe of the crowd and kept playing great music. I thoroughly enjoyed the range of vocals this band brings, it was one of the reasons we chose them.Sent on 11/10/2018

Book this band asap!
I cannot say enough positive things about Undercover Live Entertainment. They MADE our Wedding. The dance floor was moving and groovy from the second they struck their first musical note. They had everyone so pumped that even when they took their break, and put on an ipod -- people still kept dancing. That never happens at weddings! I would say run, don't walk, to book this band.Sent on 11/08/2018
They listen to your song lists, don't play list, and suggestions and were truly so easy to work with. Everyone after the wedding said what a great band they were and how much fun they had. If I could give 100+ stars I would!! Best Band Ever! Thank you Undercover! [Stefanie, Bride married in Palm Springs in Fall 2018]

Undercover Live played at our wedding a few weeks ago and did a fabulous job! The band had great energy and the MC did a wonderful job directing the reception! Our guests have mentioned on multiple occasions to us since the wedding how great our band was. I highly recommend them for future wedding performances or event performances!!Sent on 11/05/2018

Truly a PHENOMENAL band! Our guests cannot stop raving about Undercover Live!
Without a doubt, hiring Undercover Live was the BEST decision in our wedding planning process. They surpassed all of our expectations. Our guests cannot stop talking about the AMAZING performance and are asking how to hire them for their next event. George was responsive, professional, and the entire band was a CLASS ACT. We can't thank them enough for making our reception something our guests will never forget. As I was watching my closest friends and family dance the night away on our wedding day, it felt like I was at an upscale and private concert. It was incredible. During their performance, my guests kept asking, "How did you find them and how do we hire them?!" Undercover Live is truly a phenomenal band and you will NOT be disappointed. We recommend Undercover Live to anyone dreaming of a fun, memorable, and heartfelt wedding reception. Our wedding planner, who is based in Tahoe and has planned MANY events with live bands, was also BLOWN AWAY by the band's professionalism, performance, and overall value. She had never seen a band as awesome as them. We so look forward to seeing them at a friend's wedding or birthday celebration soon!Sent on 10/20/2018
