Current Invention played for my recent wedding reception. I have gotten many rave reviews from our guests about the music and the talent of the band. They were very accommodating and helpful not only on the night of the event but during the planning process as well. You won't regret hiring them for your event!

Daniel Barber and "Current Invention" were a wonderful choice for our wedding reception. We could not have been more pleased. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, energetic and talented dance band. From booking to contract administration to set-up, sound check and performance, Daniel made everything go smoothly. We never worried about a thing. CI has a lot of varied talent displayed in their musical selections. What's really interesting is their ability to "read the crowd", make their selections, and time them as to how the event is unfolding. Our guests are still talking about the great time they had on the dance floor!

Current Invention played for my son Chris' wedding to his lovely wife Jennifer. Daniel was very helpful and responsive to my sometimes changing list of songs that I was considering for the Mother/Son dance and also the music that my husband and I enjoyed for our dances together. Many of my requests were songs that the band had not played before but it certainly didn't sound that way when they played. The music was definitely one of the highlights of the day and I very much enjoyed working with the band. It is almost two years after the wedding and I still hear compliments about how much fun everyone had! Thank you for much for making a memorable day even more so.

Current Invention responded with the following comments:

I spent a LOT of time working up some new (and very challenging) material for this client, MUCH more than usual, actually. Everyone I heard from afterwards, including the client, seemed pleased with the outcome. I'm sorry to see that that may not have been enough in this case. Another learning experience, I suppose!

I scheduled Current Invention for my brother's wedding. Their skill level is fantastic. Their sensitivity to what styles and what kind of energy would be best as the night progressed was perfect. They were easy to talk details with, extremely flexible and a pleasure to do business with. One hundred percent professional. I was especially impressed with how skilled they were with playing jazz. I was blown away by their renditions of Miles Davis's "Footprints" and Pat Metheny's "James." Their rock, R&B and motown really kept people dancing and held the crowd's attention throughout the night. If I had to plan music for my brother's wedding all over again I wouldn't even consider looking into other bands. Daniel would be the first person I would call. Book them today!
