45 Riots played at my wedding and I could not have been happier with their performance. Literally every single person in the room was on the dance floor and I truly felt like I was at a concert watching the band members play. They were upbeat, fun, energetic, and truly amazing to work with. It was such a pleasure working with Adam. He was professional and extremely thorough. We felt very confident in his hands.

Both our event designer and our caterer commented that they have never seen so many people dancing for so long. My husband and I never once sat down at our seats and my mom was shocked that all of her friends were dancing so much. I think it is truly a testament to the talent and energy of 45 Riots.

I heard about 45 Riots through a close friend. After seeing them play live at BB Kings in the city I knew I had to have them at our wedding. Adam was wonderful, so easy to bounce ideas off of and always quick to respond to any number of my questions either by phone or email. I felt extremely confident in having them be a part of our day and looking back, I couldn't have imagined it any other way.

I have gotten so many compliments from both our friends as well as older family members, all of whom were on the dance floor. You couldn't help but dance when you saw and heard the band's energy!!

We had 45 Riots play for our wedding on 9/27/14, and we still have people telling us nonstop how unbelievably incredible they were! They had everyone up on the dance floor and were really intuitive at reading the group, so they knew when to play some slower songs or songs for different ages. I can't say enough about how amazing they were every step of the way. Adam was so organized and made me feel so confident that they had all of our requests in mind. It was truly a night we won't forget, in large part to them!

People can't stop talking about how amazing the band was. We really had a incredible time thanks to 45 Riots. These guys are top notch; from the very moment we booked you until the moment our guests were shouting "one more song!" I know our group didn't want the music to end. Our only concern was that the dance floor was not big enough...everyone was dancing! We even had guests take their business cards so they can see them play again in the city. I'd recommend 45 Riots in a heartbeat. One of my bridesmaids just booked them for her wedding

We had the most amazing time with JJ and 45 Riots at our wedding. I can't even put into words how perfect they were. We could not stop dancing and we heard nothing but compliments from our guests. They were so professional, fun and easy to work with and we would recommend 45 Riots to anyone and everyone! The guys knocked it out of the park for us. They were the talk of our wedding, the band was as tight as we knew they would be, but the energy level they put forth was beyond any expectations we had. The band was the engine that made our party as crazy as we wanted it to be and we appreciate the professionalism displayed through every stage of our process with 45 Riots. JJ and his team were pure energy from start to finish and ensured that we will NEVER forget our wedding!

The 45 Riots put on the most amazing performance at our wedding! WeI cannot express how lucky we feel to have had them perform. They made the night for us - all we ever wanted was to host the party of a lifetime and they made that happen!

Each of the band members is so clearly gifted and together they are absolutely fabulous! Our guests could not stop raving about the band!

Not only did they put on the performance of a lifetime, but working with Adam and the band was SO easy. He was professional and easily accessible throughout the entire process.

We would HIGHLY recommend this band - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Thank you again to the 45 Riots for making our wedding so special!

We used 45 Riots at our 7/26/14 wedding at The Garrison Inn. 45 Riots absolutely "made" our wedding. My husband and I love dancing (even if we are not very good at it) and we love music so we knew that the band choice was incredibly important to us. Our friends (who also love to dance and who also love music) were blown away all night by 45 riots. We keep getting cards and emails about how much fun everyone had dancing at our wedding.

45 Riots is much more than your typical wedding band. They are true musicians with amazing talent. They listened to all of our requests and were able to perform very new songs. Plus, you can tell they absolutely love what they do!

On a professional level they were punctual, responsive, and very organized. I had phone calls and an in-person meeting with Adam Mason who runs 45 riots. He made specific notes about all of my requests and he called our venue coordinator beforehand to make sure everyone was on the same page. Lastly, Adam and the other members of 45 riots are some of the sweetest people I have ever met. I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding so fun and memorable!

Like many grooms I had the good fortune of being able to sit back as my future wife did most of the heavy lifting of our wedding planning. But when it came time to pick our wedding band something snapped in me and I went into full-on Groomzilla mode. I didn't care about table arrangements or up-lighting or font styles, but I felt adamantly that I needed to find the perfect wedding band that would keep the dance floor packed all night long and have everyone talking the next day at brunch. I channeled my inner Simon Cowell and one by one eliminated bands that I watched videos of online or saw in person until thankfully I eventually found 45 Riots. After watching a video of them online, my wife and traveled from Philly to New York to hear them play live, and that's when I was sure I had found our band. Their musicianship was incredible, their vibe was super fun without trending into cheesy wedding band, and every song of every style they just knocked out of the park. Amazingly, they only continued to impress us from then on. Adam was a pleasure to work with and somehow managed to make coordinating with us out-of-towners and accommodating our requests look easy. Our wedding planner was equally impressed at how professional Adam and the band were and how great they were to work with leading up to and during our event. Most importantly of all, they didn't disappoint on our wedding day as our reception flowed great and the party rocked thanks to 45 Riots. My only regret would be that night flew by me in a blur and it was over too fast, so to whomever reads this: please hire 45 Riots for your wedding....and then make sure I get the invite!

We'll always have great memories of our wedding, and 45 Riots is a huge reason why. First, before getting to how outstanding the band itself was, Adam Mason - the group's musical director - was awesome to deal with. Throughout the entire planning process, Adam was a total professional, consistently timely and thorough in communicating with us. He was more than willing to bring the band down to Philadelphia, and subsequently went on to accommodate any and all additional requests that we made. It was clear that Adam and the band were committed to doing whatever it took to make the night special for us. They couldn't have made it easier for us to trust them with our vision for their role in the wedding.

As for the music, it was flat-out phenomenal. Prior to the wedding, we had been very impressed with what we had heard from the group after checking out its music videos, and also having gone to one of their shows at B.B. King's. The night of our wedding, though, 45 Riots completely exceeded all expectations. The procession / recession music was done with an excellent touch, while the playlist for the dance sets built up great momentum throughout the night. As the band worked through a diverse batch of material, which ranged from pop to R&B to rock, and to rap, they managed to transition seamlessly between contemporary and classic hits, all while putting their own distinct, energetic stamps on every song. The musicianship was superb. It was really fun to hear a group do its own thing, and be original. In no way did anything about 45 Riots sound cliched, stale, or tired; their playing was passionate, inspired, soulful, and of exceptional quality.

All in all, we couldn't have been happier with having chosen 45 Riots to play our wedding. They came ready to party, and made sure that we and all of our guests did just that the entire night.

In no way did anything about 45 Riots sound cliched, stale, or tired; their playing was passionate, inspired, soulful, and of exceptional quality.

All in all, we couldn't have been happier with having chosen 45 Riots to play our wedding. They came ready to party, and made sure that we and all of our guests did just that the entire night. Read less

We chose 45 Riots for their independent presence and their excellent musical abilities.
And we were definitely NOT disappointed! We had such a great time on the dance floor and our friends continue to rave about our band months after the wedding. From the beginning, Adam was very professional and accommodated all of our wishes. On the wedding day, all the band members
were incredibly enthusiastic and brought great energy to the party! Thank you 45 Riots for making our wedding day so memorable!
