Weddings, Receptions and Rehearsal Dinners
Since waaaay back in ’87 we’ve been playing wedding receptions and private parties. Our versatility, professionalism and charm have won over audiences, families and wedding parties wherever our band performs. From destination weddings in Lake Tahoe NV, Park Cities UT, the wine country in California, Puerto Rico and Mexico to our home base in Texas, my band and I guarantee a fantastic night of music and dancing. From 50’s classics, 60’s rock and roll, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, boy bands, Indie bands, movie soundtracks, shout alongs, hair metal, and line dancing, we got you. We have an incredible female singer too. We’re talking Rihanna, Tina Turner, Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Shania, and all the classic duets too. And we always welcome special song requests. You can view our current Song List here to get a glimpse of our expansive music library.

I’m available to play the cocktail hour as a live solo act, smaller band such as a trio, or even prerecorded music from one of my playlists or one of yours. This can be booked on it’s own or as an addition to one of the above Wedding Reception packages.
In addition to the reception and cocktail hour, I also offer live or pre-recorded music for your ceremony. Whether it’s instrumental guitar or you want me to sing a special song as you walk down the aisle, I have a large list of wedding songs to choose from or I can learn a special request for you. I can also arrange for other musicians to join me (female vocalist, strings, piano, etc). I can also provide a microphone for your officiant if needed. If you have a videographer I can also work with them to insure that all the audio from the ceremony, speeches, or any other important moments are captured on their recordings.
I am also available as a solo act for your rehearsal dinner. I can provide prerecorded or live dance music if you’re looking for more of a party atmosphere, or I can keep it more laid back for a classic, dinner vibe. I can provide a microphone for speeches and if you’re planning on sharing a video, I can provide a sound system for any special music or playlist you may have.
DJ vs. Live Band?
Full disclosure – I am definitely not a DJ. I am friends with several, excellent wedding DJ’s and I am in awe of them, have tons of respect for what they do, and I know I could never pull that off the way they do. However, if your wish is to have a live band AND also have someone play some of your favorite songs from the original artist, take requests, and that sort of thing, then we are happy to do that for you. Essentially a night of non-stop music even when the band is on break.
Check out our ever-changing and quite entertaining Song List. Jazz, Motown, country, love songs, Alternative/Indie, 80’s hair bands, classic rock, boy bands, obnoxious sing-longs, dance, pop, and Lizzo, LOTS of Lizzo! And we’re constantly updating the list with new material.
We have a fancy lighting-package upgrade available: moving lights, trusses, hazers… it’s cool. We’ll need to check with your venue’s fire code / sprinkler system first. And we’ll need additional clearance above and behind the stage area, but totally worth the extra price.
We have room uplighting available: Wireless, programmable LED lights that we can synchronize with the stage lighting.
And Even More Lights
We have a Gobo projector: Impress your guests with a peronalized monogram or image shot from our projector onto the floor.
