Not only is Attraction extremely entertaining and engaging, they're easy to work with, too. Their band leader Dave Barton will happily work with you to ensure you're happy with the song selection prior to your event - including special requests or if someone wants to sit in with the band. He's exceptionally detail-oriented and will work with you or your event coordinator to ensure a good flow & momentum and maximize the most music during the course of your event. Their state-of-the-art sound system is always at the volume level that suits you, and you can always count on the band looking great in sharp, stylish black or tux attire. Want a larger band? Attraction can add a horn section, too!

Perfect Volume. 'nuff said. Never a complaint. Guests can talk, visit, and dance to our music without problem.

Long power sets to pack the dance floor. Attraction feature sets that consistently run 75 minutes or longer!

Sennheiser in-ear monitoring. No squealing. What does this mean? NO volume complaints. Never a " band/DJ was too loud". Not here!

All lighting is high-end LED - small footprint with very litte electrical pull.

First dances that stay true to the original recording so YOU can prepare and be spot on.

Yes! We can add even more music - either recorded or live for your cocktail hour.

Newer upbeat appropriate DJ mixes played as required on our state-of- the-art PA. Your iPod? Can do!

NO mixing board at the fifty yard line! ALL of our mixing is done remotely using iPAD wireless networking from a well dress sound tech.

Something for everyone. Look over our songlist from Ke$ha to Louis Armstrong to The Temptations -there is a song for ALL age groups.

Weddings often require a band that can easily move between light background music to high-energy, raise the roof dance music; from romantic ballads to get-everyone-on-the-floor party hits. Attraction provides top quality fun, music and attention to detail. Attraction can announce your wedding party as the enter the reception. Attraction will take breaks when you are cutting your cake or taking pictures to play as much music as possible. Attraction will perform fun tunes for your bouquet toss and garter traditions and Attraction will happily make any announcements you may require during the course of the reception. Read less

Attraction was simply amazing. We hired them for our wedding and had the time of our lives. Guests came up to my family all night commenting how great they were and how much fun they were having. Attraction did a great job of interacting with the crowd and played the best songs ever. The band was professional to work with and Dave Barton did a fabulous job with communication and made sure the wedding was a blast. Attraction was by far the best band we have ever heard.

Attraction was absolutely fantastic at my wedding. Dozens of guests pulled me aside to tell me how much they loved the band, their selection of music and their energy. They kept people on the dance floor all night. Their team is highly professional and was open to suggestions from us prior to the wedding, which was important to me. I'd absolutely work with them again.

Attraction was great, they were willing to learn our first dance song, the last song of the night We're Going Home By- Drake and played the songs we chose off of their playlist. They also played our iPod of the songs we chose on their breaks throughout the night. The band did a great job of introducing/making announcement and overall keeping the reception running smoothly. Last but not least, they kept the dance floor packed, they were energetic, and involved with our guests, they really kept everyone in the moment of the celebration!! They met all of our expectations and more.

We wanted our wedding to be a mega dance party and this band made it happen! Everyone danced all night and my grandmothers were breaking it down in the middle of the dance floor. One said she hadn't danced like that in ten years since my grandfather passed away!

From the beginning, the communication was exceptional. As our wedding neared, Dave Barton contacted me directly and we chatted for an hour about what I expected, requests for birthday announcements, had to play list and tons of other things. He can offer great advice for anyone nervous about first dances. Just an overall great professional and fun guy!

The entire band blew my guests away. I've had several guests tell me they had never heard/experienced anything like it. People want to hire them from all over. We brought them from VA to GA. They love to travel!!

I am a wedding photographer and have obviously been to many many weddings. Of course I am partial to my own but ATTRACTION was really such an amazing decision that we still rave about months later! My husband is such a music lover and this was a big decision! I have never heard a band this good at a wedding. The added horns section was the bomb!! All singers had amazing voices, dance moves and stage presence. Tasteful and charismatic!!

They know how to get a party started and when it's time to kick it up a notch. One of my favorite things is that besides a couple of must play songs and some information on what we definitely did not want to hear, Dave and the band had free reign of song choices! It really makes for a stress free wedding. No one is saying "I didn't hear that song..." or "I missed this song.." They are so professional that they just keep the night going.

I could go on forever and ever about them but just seriously don't search anymore! They are killer!
