REAL MUSIC made by REAL PEOPLE using REAL INSTRUMENTS providing REAL ENTERTAINMENT!

We create, in real time, a super special unique, entertaining wedding or event just for you, and only you!

Be exceptional and be loved! Your guests will love you for it!!

Our musical styles cover Swing, Classic Rock & Pop, Big Band, R&B, Jazz (Traditional, Dixieland and Straight-Ahead), Variety and Christian Music.

My line-up includes Bill Sargent's "REALLY Big Band", The famous Bill Sargent Big Band, Bill Sargent's Trad-Jazz Rousers Dixieland Band, and smaller custom groups including Quintets, Quartets, and Trios.

To secure a Bill Sargent Band for your event, contact me today!

My availability is very limited. I don't perform for just anybody and everybody. I, and my band, have earned the right to perform only for the very best clients, the very best events, and the very best weddings. I limit myself to performing for those who place a high value on really excellent music; those who have a passion for great music and consider it to be important in their life and for their event. I am for those who want their event to be different; a step above everyone else's event.

THEREFORE, if you are that kind of person, there is really good news for you. First, you will be getting a band that people don't get to see at your friends' weddings, or all kinds of public events all over the place. You will be providing your guests with something truly special and unique. Second, if you are that kind of person, I will give you first-class personal service and attention, because I consider you to be special and your event to be very important and I will settle for nothing less than pure excellence. Life is simply too short to accept anything less. Read less

It was so so good working with Bill - absolutely no regrets hiring Bill Sargent Bands for our special day! Bill added several of my requested songs to his band's playbook, stayed in touch, and kept everyone moving on the dance floor! So fun for people of all ages, all of our friends and family loved listening and dancing to a live band!

The band was personable, friendly, and professional. We used them for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Everyone, especially my dad, was impressed and thoroughly enjoyed their musical ability and talent. My aunt sang along from her chair. They played in my sister's home and were loud enough to hear around the house, but not too loud that people could hold conversations without have to shout over the music. It was exactly what we asked for. The experience made it a night to remember for us, our 80 guests, and most of all our parents. Thank you Bill!

Bill and his band were outstanding! From our first call to the actual date, the process was handled so genuinely and professionally and easily. Bill collaborated with us to integrate our vision, our dreams and our faith into our music selection and atmosphere. Bill was great at enhancing and making suggestions to help us create the most special and wonderful day of our lives. The musicians were so very professional, warm, inviting and so incredibly talented. They touched our hearts and that of our guests with their skill and demeanor. They created a most unforgettable day and we have a picture of each one of them and their instruments in our keeping. He made our day full of faith, and fun and wonderful romantic classics.

They were very professional and flexible and provided much better entertainment than a traditional dj service. They helped make the day memorable. I wouldn't have changed this at all. I would definitely recommend the Bill Sargent Bands to anyone who is looking to have live music at their event.

The Bill Sargent Band (quintet) that we had was absolutely phenomenal - our guests commented on it all night long! Our only misgiving was that it took them a long time between songs, which often left you feeling awkward on the dance floor. If I were to do it again, I'd make sure they had a more organized set list. Overall, though, the music was amazing, the sound was perfect, and our guests LOVED the live band!

Bill Sargent Bands responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your input regarding the response times. I checked my email correspondence and found in 2011 Marina emailed 8/10 and I replied on 8/10. She emailed on 11/5 and I replied on 11/7.

In 2012, Marina emailed on 1/27 and I replied on 1/27. She emailed on 4/29 and I replied on 4/30. She emailed me on 5/18 and I replied on 5/18. She emailed me on 5/23 and I replied on 5/23.

The above does not include phone calls and voice mails.

I realize that in the past, due to travel, there may have been a day, perhaps two, between inquiry and response. I have since corrected this and we now have the fastest response time in the industry. And, by response, I do not mean via auto-responder. I strive to give you the very best customer service available anywhere, and to me, that means personal attention from me, not a secretary or an agency, no filters or gatekeepers, but direct communication between you & me, Bill Sargent. Again, thanks.
