Anyone who attended our daughter's wedding will be talking about "the band" 747 Orchestra for months to come. No Hollywood movie star could have a band as amazing as this orchestra. They are in a league of their own. The energy 747 brought to the party was through the roof! From the horn section and unbelievable singers, to the outstanding drummer with the cool sunglasses, I can tell you that your guests will be in awe. We loved when the band's singers and horns came out onto the dance floor and played and sang directly to the bride and groom and everyone dancing! The music the band played kept the dance floor packed. All our guests were dancing and singing to every song the band played. It was like the room and party took on a life of it's own. The best way I can describe the experience is "surreal." The talent and the incredible hard work of 747 Orchestra helped to make our daughter's wedding a night we will never forget. 747 you have our eternal gratitude and we will be recommending you to all our friends, acquaintances and colleagues who are planning celebrations. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! If you are considering a band for your wedding, 747 Orchestra is a no-brainer. Their level of skill and professionalism is off the chart. The dance floor was packed all night. Two months later, it's still all anyone talks about. Amazing does not begin to describe how good they were. Nanci Silver, the band leader, was fantastic. She did everything we wanted and then some. We only wished they could play for another 5 hours. They made an incredible wedding unforgettable. Thank you 747.

Best band ever!!! The professionalism alone is fantastic. The music is amazing! We had the pleasure of attending a wedding with 747 and knew we had to have them for our own. you will not be disappointed. The dance floor was packed the whole night. We received compliments from every guest about the band and how fantastic they were, how fun they were and how amazing their song selections were. They made our first dance so memorable. Each song was better than the last. Truly amazing and worth every penny! I would absolutely recommend 747 to anyone looking to have a fabulous dance party!

We heard amazing things about 747 Orchestra and booked them for our wedding in March. They are, hands down, THE most awesome band ever!! The musicians are so cool and their songs and arrangements were the bomb. Our guests did not stop dancing so we had to stay another half hour, but man, was it ever worth it! If you are fortunate enough to have 747 Orchestra for your wedding, you are in the best possible hands. :)

When we selected 747 Orchestra for our wedding last month it was because we saw them at 4 of our friends' weddings. This band is beyond AMAZING!! We left most of the song selection up to them because they know how to make a party happen and ours certainly did! They have a very long history providing dance music and it is easy to see why! Thank you 747 Orchestra and we will see you in a few months as we are guests at yet another wedding

We were thrilled with the band and overall experience of working with 747 Orchestra. The music was fantastic. They really know how to get everyone on the dance floor and keep them there.

My only hesitation for not giving 5 star ratings across the board was the band manager's refusal to work with our day-of coordinator and some inflexibility on song selection. Everything ended up working out wonderfully, but there were a couple of tense conversations.

The band was one of the very best parts of our wedding. The band was very professional - and extremely fun! People were up dancing the whole night long, from the very first song to the last. Our friends and family (of ALL ages) raved about the music.

The only challenges we had were negotiating with the band leader about song selections.

747 ORCHESTRA responded with the following comments:

I noticed your guests were beginning to leave the party and the cake had not been cut. I,in good faith, went over to your caterer and brought this to his attention, but he didn't seem to care-if you recall, there was so much cake left, it was offered to the band members. This was well after the main course was finished, and 747 Orchestra had all your guests dancing, as your photos evidence on our Facebook page - 747 Orchestra.
It was wonderful planning the music for your anniversary party, Cheryl, and I wish you and your husband many more years of happiness.
