Planning a wedding can be stressful. Working with the Big Kahuna Band is easy.

The band was incredibly flexible and made songs they learned especially for our reception sound like part of their catalog.

They can (and did) play everything from Glenn Miller to Bruno Mars and back again. Even better, they know how to read a crowd and will work with your venue to make sure the whole thing goes off without a hitch.

If you want your reception to stand out and your guests to spend their night on the dance floor, do yourself a favor and hire the Big Kahuna Band!

The Big Kahuna was great. They learned new songs for us (country music) and did a great job with it. You can tell they really enjoy what they do and have fun doing it. Their excitement was really enjoyed by the guests.
The band is professional and easy to communicate with.
We think they are a wonderful band and highly recommend them. My only advice to future brides is if they ask about cutting the parent dances short, specify what they mean by short. Our songs were originally 5 minutes so we assumed they would play 3 minutes but it ended up being about 1 minute (even less for the mother son dance). However we were short on time so that could have contributed with ours being cut so short. It's your wedding and the band is happy to do what you want to make it your dream day. If you're looking for a band you won't go wrong with the Big Kahuna.

Casey, Donna and the rest of the Big Kahuna Band were really great. Email and phone correspondence leading up to our big day were a pleasure. They were very receptive to songs we wanted included that they did not already know. They were able to roll with the punches and make last minute changes, even when I emailed them less than 12 hours before the wedding with changes. Oh, and of course, they were all very talented musicians! They really know how to get a party started and keep it going. I recommend them to anyone looking for a great band I'm the tri state area.

Wedding planning entails many choices and when the right one is made it makes all the difference in the world. My wife and I were considering a DJ vs a band and as the planning evolved we decided on a band. Reviews were of course our guide and we found the Big Kahuna Band after multiple sources linking back to them. Without a doubt and with pleasure we are adding our testimony of making the absolute best choice in choosing these guys. They are absolutely a fantastic group of musicians who love what they do and that very element translates right into the atmosphere they create. We loved them and our guests did as well. We received so many compliments on choosing such a great band. Our night was amazing and everyone had a wonderful time. Music is a big factor in your entertainment and if you are looking for a band then we highly recommend a tremendous group of wonderful musicians. Thank you Big Kahuna Band for making our night that much more special.

We just got married (10/26/14) and our guests made sure to let us know that they loved the band we picked. We loved the Big Kahuna Band too. They had so much energy throughout the entire night and only stopped (briefly) so our guests could take a break and eat their dinner (our guests probably would have stayed on the dance floor if the band kept playing!). This band truly loves what they do and they enjoy making your wedding feel special. They made us feel special by learning a couple new songs for our ceremony (keyboard only), our first dance, etc. They also went with the flow when the bride's brother requested a brother/sister dance. Our parents were happy that the mix of music they played kept all generations on the dance floor all night. Some highlights were Donna singing our first dance song "Crazy for You" by Madonna, when Doug came out onto the dance floor to sing in the middle of the crowd with the mic, and the quirky vocals the guitarist provided for songs like "Love Shack"!

Thank you!
Jillian and Michael

Umm where to start. Living in the Hudson Valley, I knew that I had my work cut out for me for finding a band. I searched for bands in the city all the way through Albany. Luckily, my parents found out about the BK Band. We went to a showcase at the lead singers house, and they completely wowed us! 1st wow was because of how great they sounded. 2nd wow was because of how many band members they had. 3rd wow was because of how reasonably priced they were. My mom had some pretty tight restrictions for the band...aka she would not accept a band that didn't play Cher. They learned a Cher song for my mom, a song dedicated to my grandmother, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and our first song. How many bands can you say that will learn that many songs for a wedding! We had a prep call the day before the wedding, and I can not tell you how professional they are. They wanted to make sure they were saying everyone's names right, went over the schedule, and the song selection to make sure that the night went off perfectly!! During our wedding when we did our walk around, every single table asked us where we found them and how great they were. They had everyone on the dance floor all night, and they jumped up with my mom during her Cher song and sang with her. During my grandmothers song, I asked to sing the song lead and they totally let me! I can't tell you how much fun I had. They also read the room to see how the crowd was reacting to the evening. They truly made our day special and can't thank them enough. If you are located around the Hudson Valley, I 100% recommend this band for your wedding.

Big Kahuna Band was FANTASTIC! We would honestly and wholeheartedly recommend this band for a wedding or special event! Casey, the manager, and Donna, the lead singer were extremely helpful in the planning and organizational process in the months leading up to our wedding including learning a few songs specifically for us! On our wedding night, the band was a huge highlight! They got us and our guests dancing and everyone LOVED the songs as well as their musicality! Even weeks after the wedding, we are still getting comments on how sensational Big Kahuna was! The singing was spectacular and the musicians were amazing... particularly the horn section! We would LOVE to spend another night of dancing and fun with Big Kahuna! Jen and Zeke, October 4, 2014
