Airwaves was AMAZING! Ted Karas was so easy to work with, a great communicator and very accommodating. No prima donnas here -- Ted and Dixie are just nice people. The band is composed of great musicians who really give a great performance. They really MADE our evening. They have an incredible playlist with so many songs from every decade, and they were happy to learn a new number for the bride and groom's first dance. This is the best band in Cincinnati for a wedding or party!

Awesome band! We loved these people. They were so great to work with. Ted Karas informed us of all the things we needed to know, provided playlists and thoughts about how the reception time should flow which was very helpful to us. Such sweet people and very accommodating with regard to music preferences. They kept our guests on the dance floor and everyone wanted to know where we found such a great group of musicians! There's nothing like a live band and these people are so great!

Airwave is by far best wedding band in Cincinnati! If I could give them 10 stars I would! My husband and I started looking for wedding bands shortly after we got engaged and stumbled upon Airwave on a wedding website. We decided to check out one of their shows at Carlo & Johnny and literally booked them that night (Yes, they are THAT amazing!) Dixie's voice is one of the most beautiful, soulful voices I've ever heard in my life! Just spectacular! We loved them so much that the months leading up to our wedding we went to almost all of their shows at Carlo & Johnny for our date nights. Ted, Dixie and Keenan all took the time to say hello during their breaks and even went out of their way to play our wedding song!

The range of music that they are able to play is incredible- from Cole Porter Hits to Lady Gaga (and it all sounds great!) We really appreciated that they were able to learn two new songs (Simple Man and Do You Love Me by the Contours) for our Mother/Son, Father/Daughter dances! Ted was extremely easy to work with and did an amazing job emceeing the reception. Our guests went crazy when they played "Blurred Lines" for our Bridal Party Grand Entrance--too fun! Do yourself a favor and book Airwave for your wedding! Our guests are still talking about our amazing band and what a great time they had dancing the night away! Thank you Airwave!- Homana & Matt

We cannot say enough about this band!! From learning to play the bride and groom's requested first song to keeping even the non-dancers on the dance floor, this is the band you want for your next event. Ted is so easy to work with, and takes all your special requests. Our guests loved it when the sax player played in the middle of the dance floor. The night just flew by! Thank you Ted and Dixie! It was a great reception!

Airwave is a MUST book!!! They did an amazing job the whole night. Ted MC'ed the reception, and the band kept people dancing all night long. The event coordinator said that in all of her years working at wedding receptions, she had never seen so much dancing. If you want your guests to have a blast, you should book this band. They're extremely professional and fun, and I would highly recommend!

Airwaves is great! Ted was very responsive through the whole process. My mom and I went to listen to them at Jeff Rubys (where they play every wednesday) and Ted made a point to come up and introduce himself. We had a lot of guests in the 20-30 year old range as well as parents and grandparents who were on the dance floor all night, which is exactly what we wanted. Great music for everyone!

We couldn't have found a better band to play at our wedding. Airwave was perfect from start to finish. They have a extensive song list to choose from and played a wide range of music that had our guests dancing all night long. Many of our guests commented how much they loved our band. I would highly recommend Airwave to play at your wedding. You won't be disappointed!

Airwave Band was absolutely fantastic. They made our reception so much fun! My husband and I really wanted to sing a song together for our guests, and they worked with us to make that happen. They were very easy to work with, and their music was incredible. All of our guests were up dancing at the start of the first song! I will forever recommend Airwave Band to everyone I know!

My husband and I selected Airwave for our 2013 wedding.After seeing them play at Jeff Rubys, we knew they could put on a great show and came highly recommended.
I cannot say enough good things about them. They know weddings and know how to put on to keep your guests entertained. Ted was exteremly professional to work with and stayed in communication with us throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding.
They played a variety of songs, and even learned to play a new song (at no additonal cost) for our first dance.
My favorite memory was when the sax player came onto the dance floor and played his saxophone around the guests. My guests applauded and whistled! It was a blast and an memroy I will never forget!

Airwave made our wedding reception a success and I can not thank them enough!
