We provide great memories. Located in Los Angeles and leading the way for more than thirty years now, de Bois is the first call for wedding entertainment in Southern California. Our musicians can deliver any style of music a client desires for their special day...from Sinatra and Buble' to Motown and Rock & Roll, from 80's to Top 40 and everything in between. de Bois Entertainment's bands are made up of musicians and vocalists who play together week after week - they are never randomly assembled, therefore they know each other’s every nuance and there is never a missed beat in the music or the flow of the event.

Over thirty years of experience in the business has enabled de Bois Entertainment to provide the information and guidance that a client needs to make the best entertainment choices for any style of wedding, including the ceremony & cocktail hour as well as the reception music. Randy Stern’s background (over 16 years as keyboardist and musical director for Lionel Richie) brings experience and expertise that which is unparalleled in the event entertainment industry. Susan de Bois has been at the forefront of event entertainment for more than 30 years.

If desired, a consultation enables the client to view video and/or listen to audio of our world-class bands and performers, and discuss what is exactly needed for your event. Once the entertainment is selected our top-notch staff will work with you to customize a timeline including song selections along with any other special requests.

"Our goal is to provide the very best in music and entertainment and assist in you in creating the most memorable event".

My husband and I booked the band Impact for our wedding and we could not have been more pleased with their performance! Terri and the rest of the staff at De Bois were a dream to work with. Terri communicated with our day of coordinator to ensure the timing for the evening worked perfectly with our preferences and the timing of toasts and food. The band kept perfectly to the agreed upon schedule and they emceed the evening with class. Nearly all 220 guests were dancing all night long, including all our friends in their 20s and all our parents' and grandparents' friends too! We received compliments on the band from everyone. Most importantly the band sounded incredible!! The singers are excellent, the music was amazing, and the sound quality and volume were perfect. De Bois even sends sound technicians with the band to ensure the sound is excellent and there are never any technical difficulties. The price is well worth it!

They played all genres (including the country we asked them to learn) and had SUCH great spirit. Terri and Randy were great on the administrative side as well! HIGHLY recommend them!!

We had the Earl Alexander Band at our wedding and they were FANTASTIC! They were classy, yet so fun and played all the Motown and current songs that we loved. There was a perfect flow of music through out our reception- from the moment we sat down to find our seats ( with Sinatra style standards) to the end of the night where they played Beyonce and Pharrell Williams...my husband and I were so pleased. We are a young couple with lots of young friends, so we wanted to make sure the band wouldn't be boring...we had absolutely no worries with Earl Alexander! Our parents and their friends loved the slow dance songs and old 70's hits they played too! They were so versatile and sounded great in every song. I must also give a shout out to Terri @ DeBois Entertainment who we worked with and was so helpful throughout the whole process. We had so many requests and questions but she made us feel at ease and comfortable the whole time. Thank you again DeBois Entertainment and Earl Alexander Band!

de Bois and their bands are absolutely fantastic. We had the pleasure of having TC & Traffic Jamm be our band and they were out of this world good. All of our guests couldn't get over how great they sounded, the energy they played with, and the fun they brought to the party. In fact when they were done all the guests chanted "encore" and they were good enough to play another song. TC then stuck around afterwards and talked with guests - really nice of them. Highly recommend them and also de Bois in general - very professional and responsive - everything went off with out a hitch. Thank you!

Unbelievable band for the reception---everyone was on the dance floor the whole night! Masta and the backup singers were incredible! Many of the wedding guests said this was the best band they had ever heard. Dealing with de Bois Entertainment was extremely easy--and they provided a wonderful ceremony orchestra and cocktail ensemble as well. We were thrilled with the results and would highly recommend them as tops in the business.

We had High Rize as our wedding band, and they were amazing! Music was incredibly important to us and the band exceeded any and all expectations we had. Everyone said it was the best band they've ever heard at a wedding - and we agree! Would ABSOLUTELY recommend them to anyone getting married. True professionals who can play every type of music - sometimes even better than the original.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with DJ Jimmy. He is a very talented DJ, with a great jazz singing voice. He kept our wedding upbeat, and made sure to include all of our requests in the evening mix. We would highly recommend him to anyone getting married that appreciates live singing of classic songs by Sinatra, etc.

We booked DeBois Entertainment for our daughter’s wedding and it was first class all the way. We contracted with their band, The Earl Alexander Band, and they did not disappoint. The band brought seven pieces including a sax. The dance floor was full, and everyone, of all ages had a great time. DeBois set up additional music sound systems throughout our venue for the ceremony and cocktail hour and that went smoothly also. It was a fun night, very classy and very lively. The Earl Alexander musicians are not only talented, but they also know how to please the crowd, and to conduct themselves with the utmost finesse.

Father of Bride says: TC and Traffic Jamm
Unbelievable band!! TC has an incredible voice and is a classy showman and MC. Musicians par excellence. Great female singer. Our playlist included songs from Seger, Bon Jovi, Santana, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, Bruno Mars, Frank Sinatra, and more. They can do anything even with a late night request (B-52's Love Shack). Great guitar and sax rifs.
If you want the dance floor crowded all night, this is your band. Nothing but raves from the guests, ages 20's to 80's. I would hire them again in a second. Excellent collaboration with our wedding venue coordinators.

I used the band TC & Traffic Jam for my wedding in February. This band is AMAZING! My husband is latin and so for our party, they even added a latin singer to cover every genre of music that we wanted at our party. They learned all of the songs that we wanted them to learn and the playlist for the event was amazing. This band will make your party great and Teri and Randy at Dubois will do everything they can to reassure you of this as you plan your event. They are worth every penny and one of few vendors from my event that I can wholeheartedly recommend with no hesitation. My party went until midnight and all of the guests were sad when they played their final song.

My husband and I got married in beautiful Palm Springs just barely two weeks ago. We returned late last night from our honeymoon and have not stopped talking about our amazing wedding weekend, A huge favorite of our celebration was of course of incredible band, De Bois Entertainment's "Entourage" band, who truly made our night! I live in Los Angeles but we got married in Palm Springs and was worried we would not find the style and level of entertainment that we were hoping for to entertain our crowd of 120 people who had flown in from all over the country expecting to dance and have fun! When Terri and Randi at DeBois told me that we could get the band of our choice down to Palm Springs, my head was spinning. I knew that would be the final touch of our wedding that we just had to have. The band itself was truly amazing. The wedding flowed exactly as we wanted, they played our mix of requested music and the schedule went off without a hitch with set-up, coordinating, etc. Terri at DeBois was an angel in helping to coordinate and finalize all the details for our big day. We can't say enough about them, we love them, we love them, we love them and we can't imagine our big day without them. Thank you Terri, Randi, DeBois and "Entourage" for making our wedding night so memorable and fun!

Both vocalists were amazing, our dance floor was not big enough, people were dancing around their tables. I will recommend entourage to all my friends. If you are looking for a band for your wedding please use them, they were amazing. Randy and Jimmy were so easy to work with and very well organized. The whole process was simple and easy. There online song selection list is great. The band was professional, talented, and wonderful.

Luckily we booked De Bois early on in the planning process for our 10/26 wedding and they made everything a breeze! Once we booked we were assigned an event coordinator, Terri, who was so great to work with and was always very accessible. She was so lovely and sweet and alleviated any stress we had. Off the bat we knew we were in good hands.

We had De Bois do our ceremony sound (outdoor wedding) and the string quartet for ceremony and cocktail hour. The music was absolute PERFECTION and really made an impression on our guests. We chose more modern songs for our ceremony (they can play anything!) and it made our wedding more memorable and different. We received so many compliments on the music and it created such a lovely atmosphere for our guests to enjoy appetizers and drinks.

For our reception, we booked the band Masta who was also AMAZING!!!! They were so fun and energetic- there was never a dull moment! Every guest was on the dance floor the whole night and, once again, we received even more compliments on how talented and fun they were. We kicked off the reception with the hora and they could not have done a better job. We had a mixed group of people and were concerned some guests wouldn't know what to do but Masta led everyone through it and people left saying how much fun it was! The night was perfect and the band rocked everyone's socks off!

De Bois did a great job with everything at our wedding and I am truly glad we booked them. If your goal is to have a memorably fun wedding or event then I highly recommend their services... they are simply THE BEST!

High Rize played at our wedding on 8/25. All I heard from guests was "the band was amazing." I have bride brain and don't recall the exact details, but I do recall- they were seamless. The sound was pristine, the flow was natural from song to song like a fine live concert. We ended with Journey's “Don't Stop Believing” a real high-note to end for us kids from the 80s. They played all of our favorite songs. They also surprised us with a live version of “All of Me” by John Legend, a new single not yet released- it was magical. I hope next time I can just be a guest at a wedding and just enjoy the moments again.

My wife and I only considered having a band for our wedding from the very beginning. When we first met Randy we told him that a band can help make or break a wedding, which is why it was so important to us to chose the right one. We chose the band Entourage and they did not disappoint! They are extremely talented and very energetic. Entourage definitely set the mood and got everybody up on their feet.
We are extremely happy we met Randy and with our band choice. We got married in August and guest are still expressing how much they loved the them.
Thanks to Randy Stern, and everybody at Debois Entertainment, and of course to all band members of Entourage!
Also a special Thanks to the string quartet during our ceremony which was perfect and really help set the mood.

High Rize was the band at my wedding in July and I could not imagine my wedding without them - they definitely made the night! I will be recommending them to everyone planning a wedding or needing a band for their event!

As our guests were being asked to come in to the Reception (from Cocktail Hour), everyone couldn't help but immediately begin dancing as the music was fantastic and High Rize's energy had everyone in the dancing mood!

All of our guests could not stop complimenting the band - I'm sure they'll have many more booked weddings from the guests at my wedding as quite a few of my engaged friends asked for their information.

I can also honestly say that the dancing part was my fear leading up to my wedding - 1. Because I don't like to dance/am not a good dancer, and 2. I didn't want one of those weddings where no one dances and everyone sits around staring at each other.

The second I walked into the ballroom for our introduction as Mr. & Mrs. and went into our first dance, all my fears went away. I danced the WHOLE night and loved every minute of it thanks to the High Rize team! Plus, all of my guests were up and dancing for every dance set! At the end of the night our guests were chanting "One more song! One more song!" because everyone was having a blast and didn't want the dancing or night to end.

High Rize was the band at my wedding in July and I could not imagine my wedding without them - they definitely made the night! I will be recommending them to everyone planning a wedding or needing a band for their event!

As our guests were being asked to come in to the Reception (from Cocktail Hour), everyone couldn't help but immediately begin dancing as the music was fantastic and High Rize's energy had everyone in the dancing mood!

All of our guests could not stop complimenting the band - I'm sure they'll have many more booked weddings from the guests at my wedding as quite a few of my engaged friends asked for their information.

I can also honestly say that the dancing part was my fear leading up to my wedding - 1. Because I don't like to dance/am not a good dancer, and 2. I didn't want one of those weddings where no one dances and everyone sits around staring at each other.

Thank you to the entire DeBois team for making our wedding band experience so wonderful! Everyone was quick to respond, answered all of our questions, and worked within our budget to make sure we had everything we needed.

Karizma was AWESOME, and we had people coming up to us all night saying it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to... and we know it was because of the music! Thank you!!!

We booked Karizma for our wedding. They were AMAZING! We had 215 guests at our wedding and you know people had a good time when about 150 people were there for the last song of the night. They catered to us SO WELL, ending the night with a slew of 80's hits and capping off an incredible evening with Don't Stop Believing. You name it, they played it (Journey, Bryan Adams, ACDC, Fun., Bruno Mars, Jennifer Lopez....). Great Hora Medley too for all of you Jewish prospective clients!

I would recommend Karizma in a heartbeat.

Masta is amazing!!! They definitely made our wedding unforgettable. All of our guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how great the band is. They knew exactly what to play and when to play it. The entire wedding danced until the VERY end and I could not be happier. Not to mention, working with Randy & Terri was SO easy. They were so accommodating and made it such a dream. I wish we were having another party so we can have them play again! Masta is AWESOME!!! Debois Entertainment is GREAT!! And I cannot say enough good things about them. Don't think twice about working with anyone else. They are the best!!!

de Bois was fantastic! So easy and fun to work with, and we were so happy with the music at our wedding!

Our wedding was cross-cultural (half Persian and half 'American' for lack of a better term) so we were a bit nervous about finding the right music to keep everyone dancing and having fun. Randy and his team put together a combination of an amazing band (Impact) and an awesome Persian DJ (both from de Bois), who kept the party going the whole night! We received SO many compliments on the music (from both sides of the wedding) and they were well-deserved. Was really a great experience working with de Bois! Thanks for helping make our special day so much fun!

I chose Entourage (from deBois) as my wedding band. All I have to say is WOW!!!! They were so amazing. It seems like all anyone wanted to talk about during and after the wedding was how incredible the band was. They sang every genre you can imagine...and they sang each and every song maybe even better than the original artists who sang the same song. They provided such amazing energy to the party, and they kept everyone out on the dance floor for 4 continuous hours. Simply amazing, and the best money I spent on my wedding. I'd hire them over and over and over. And Terri and Randy at deBois are so helpful and attentive. They do such a great job of making sure the band sings your favorite songs and steers clear of songs you don't want. I'm so thankful that I had Entourage as my wedding band. Simply amazing!!!

I am not sure what I can say about de Bois! We had the string quartet for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were beyond amazing. We picked more contemporary music for the actual ceremony, which sounded beautiful. They even played our special request when I walked down the aisle...the theme song to Beverly Hills 90210! It was so fun and sounded great!

During the cocktail hour, I had so many compliments on the quartet. They played upbeat music that really fit the fun atmosphere we were trying to have. At one point, one of the musicians congratulated me on how fun the wedding was, and said she had such a good time learning the 90210 them...she laughed and said that was a new one for them.

I would DEFINITELY recommend de Bois to anyone/everyone. If their string quartet was this good, I am sure their other music is just as amazing.

Thanks again for making my day so special!

Our expectations were exceeded exponentially on Saturday night.
We asked that the band learn "Turn Around" by Kenny Loggins. I had major doubts that they could do
it properly for the Father Daughter, Mother Son dance. Well... Masta, the lead singer, far surpassed anything Loggins or Harry Belafonte (the
original singer of that song) have ever done. Masta is an artist of extraordinary talent! He also sang "Dance with My Father Again" which
brought everyone at the wedding to tears. He is not only a "wedding singer" he is a master artist and one who I will remember the rest of my
life. I only wish I had a recording of how he and the incredible guitarist and the rest of the band "nailed" this song (including some "orchestra" that was in the Loggins piece)
for my husband and daughter (and for me!). It was incredible. The band created lasting memories for our family and our guests. His voice and the artistry is unsurpassed! The band not only learned this and the bride and groom's first dance, they put together a montage of "hip and happening" music as well. What a wonderful night it was.

YAY for everyone! And, or course, many thanks!

Our band- High Rize - and deBois Entertainment exceeded our expectations on every level. We are STILL receiving compliments on our band - "they had so much energy!", "they played all the right songs,"; "they sounded exactly like the originals" - we have heard each of these statements over and over. The deBois team was extremely professional and responsive, with wonderful creative ideas to make our wedding entertainment exactly what we had hoped for. And the ceremony music was beautiful as well, capturing the mood we wanted to create perfectly. The reception band could not have been better. Guests who never thought they'd get up there were up there; people danced throughout the entire evening; we even went 1 1/2 hours over because people did not leave the dance floor. I feel so incredibly grateful to have had deBois and High Rize on board for what was the best weekend of my life. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends, including my sister, who is next up (i hope!). Thank you deBois!

DeBois provided all elements of the entertainment for the wedding ceremony and reception: the Spanish guitar trio, Entourage band, and DJ. We could not have been happier! Randy and Kristin were quite receptive to our needs and requests, proving to be adaptable as things changed. Friends from Spain were amazed and approving at the artistry of the guitarists; guests of every age danced all night to the incredible music of Entourage and mash-ups between the band and DJ; and, for the after hours "club," the DJ ratcheted it up for the younger crowd. We could not have been happier, and kept hearing all night..."best band ever!" This was wonderful feedback, as the bride and groom originally had wanted only a DJ, concerned that a band would not be able to play the music as originated - Entourage absolutely dispelled that notion, and the happy couple was thrilled with their friends' response to such an incredible live band experience. We could not be more delighted with how all the musical elements contributed to a wonderful wedding.

We enjoyed working with the team at de Bois. They were very detailed, patient & responsive. We selected their band MASTA and we could not have been more THRILLED with our choice! I was very picky so I wanted to choose every song that would be performed for the entire evening, even the songs played during the band breaks.

de Bois sent me extensive song list in advance to choose from. I was even able to select a few special songs in advance which were not on the list.

My guest had such a fantastic time dancing at our wedding. Masta has such AMAZING stage presence and he even came out onto the dance floor and got people out of their seats to dance WITH them. People absolutely LOVED it! I would recommend Masta & de Bois Entertainment without hesitation!

We had High Rize play our wedding and they really made the wedding what it was - an incredibly fun, high energy, smooth night -- the best night of our lives. We received so many comments about how amazing the band was both the night of and in the days that have followed.

It was only after attending several weddings as guests that my now husband and I realized how important the band is: they can truly make or break the night. High Rize TOTALLY made our wedding reception.

Also important, they took every single one of our suggestions and incorporated them so smoothly into their own playlist. It felt like a really unique, personal experience, which is a large part of what made it what we wanted.

I have already recommended High Rize and de Bois to one friend and will continue to do so!

We loved how they brought our guests to the dance floor and set the mood for each event (father/daughter dance, cake cutting, introduction). They performed great music for dinner as well, including Bebel Gilberto, which my husband loves!

Yes, it's expensive..but it's worth it. Totally worth it!

No hands bar, AMAZING. We hired High Rize and received many compliments like what a great band! They can play!!!

In the beginning of hiring a band. I almost hired the wrong band. A band that I found on the internet (Martini Kings). By the grace of instinct, I could not for the life of me sign the weird band retainer. I also had a weird feeling and I felt like it might not be a good hire. I instinctually knew I should hold off hiring them until I asked more questions. The band leader was such a jerk and had a bad attitude (I have emails to proove it). I felt so burned by the experience that we were opting to hire a DJ rather than a band. I hated that I was treated badly for asking questions and realized do not hire a band directly because there is no way to protect oneself if they perchance not show up to my reception. Thank god for instincts. I then asked our event planner to recommend someone trust worthy and MUST have a professional attitude. She recommended De Boise Entertainment. I made a call to there office-- after hours-- and I got an immediate phone call from Randy. He was very nice. I told him my dilemma and my bad experience with the other band I almost hired. I met with Randy S at his office on a Sunday. We could only meet on the weekends and he was very flexible with his schedule. We told him what kind of music we liked and he showed us some bands he thought would fit. We told him that our budget and was willing to work within our budget. In hindsight we could have hired a DJ to save money, but the band took it to another level. We are so happy we hired De Bois Entertainment. Thank you Deboise. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.

By the grace of instinct, I could not for the life of me sign the weird band retainer. I also had a weird feeling and I felt like it might not be a good hire. I instinctually knew I should hold off hiring them until I asked more questions. The band leader was such a jerk and had a bad attitude (I have emails to proove it). I felt so burned by the experience that we were opting to hire a DJ rather than a band. I hated that I was treated badly for asking questions and realized do not hire a band directly because there is no way to protect oneself if they perchance not show up to my reception. Thank god for instincts. I then asked our event planner to recommend someone trust worthy and MUST have a professional attitude. She recommended De Boise Entertainment. I made a call to there office-- after hours-- and I got an immediate phone call from Randy. He was very nice. I told him my dilemma and my bad experience with the other band I almost hired. I met with Randy S at his office on a Sunday. We could only meet on the weekends and he was very flexible with his schedule. We told him what kind of music we liked and he showed us some bands he thought would fit. We told him that our budget and was willing to work within our budget. In hindsight we could have hired a DJ to save money, but the band took it to another level. We are so happy we hired De Bois Entertainment. Thank you Deboise. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME. Read less

De Bois was great to work with. They are very professional and have great resources. We had a live jazz quartet for our wedding and they were fantastic. We had rave reviews on the music from everyone at the wedding. They showed up early, were professional, sounded great and played exactly what we were looking for. I could not be happier!

High Rize played at our July 30th wedding. We only had a chance to hear their music online and the price was great so we booked them. I have seen many wedding bands that were great- but this band is beyond great!
It was the first time about 70percent of our guests from out of state has heard a live band instead of a DJ play at a wedding, and one month later they are STILL talking about it! In fact many want a "cd" of all the songs performed at our wedding. Anyways we couldn't have been happier with the music and it made the entire wedding a better event because of it!
We also loved how they provided us with a song choice sheet prior to the wedding and we were able to decide which songs we for sure wanted played, would love to be played, and didn't want played at all. I loved being able to be part of the song choices!

Entourage played at our April 30th wedding in Beverly Hills and they were absolutely amazing, exceeded my expectations which were already quite high. Working with De Bois Entertainment and hiring Entourage was one of the fastest and easiest vendor decisions we made. We really wanted our wedding to be fun and music was a top priority for us, so we spent the extra money to have Entourage and it was worth every penny! They were so accommodating to all our requests, learned a song for our grand entrance and performed it to perfection, kept our guests (of all ages) dancing all night long and just filled the room with energy and excitement. They knew how to read our guests and interacted with them brilliantly - even now our guests are still telling me how amazing the band was. Hire them, don't even think twice! We had the time of our lives at our wedding and Entourage were truly part of that.

They definitely keep the energy level high for your reception. They will learn 2 new songs for you and they have a wonderful range. I love that TC can sing Usher's "Yeah" and Frank Sinatra too. You won't be disappointed with them.

Our experience with DeBois was a pleasure from start to finish. We loved our band, Masta. We had heard them before at a friend's wedding and they were fabulous. Masta himself is so talented, warm and charismatic. The music was fantastic and they really got everyone up on the dance floor. I can't recommend them enough. Music is such a big key to the success of your event. With DeBois you can't lose.

High Rize played at our wedding this past weekend in Santa Barbara. All the guests said they had never seen a wedding before where everyone hit the dance floor immediately. Like the previous reviewer remarked, everyone was dancing the whole night. The band could tell what our style was based on the songs we requested and the ones we asked them to learn, so they played more songs from those genres/eras that weren't on their master list. Because the band is so large and they have so many different vocalists, they can successfully perform any song and have it sound like the original. Really amazing.

We had guests coming up to us all night saying "WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS BAND, THEY'RE AMAZING?!" After they played the last song, our guests literally demanded an encore when everyone began chanting "one more song! one more song!" They were already packing up, but they played another!

We could not be more thrilled with our choice and would recommend De Bois and High Rize to anyone looking for a band that will absolutely make your event.

The guitar trio we had from de bois to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour were also FANTASTIC and really set the mood and fit the setting beautifully. We had them learn three songs for the processional, bridal processional and recessional and all renditions were flawless and stunning.

Thank you De Bois!

We hired Entourage to play our wedding and they were amazing. I'm a music snob who was a little worried about hiring a professional "event" band vs a touring band that plays their own songs, but the fact is that guests want to hear songs they know, and Entourage could not have been more talented, tuned in to the audience, and high energy. They're not cheesy at all - just multi-talented music pros. They sound just like the originals and have a long/diverse master song list, but what excited me the most was that they learned 10 additional songs that we wanted them to play (we did pay for rehearsal time). They played everything from Allman Brothers to Smokey Robinson to Beatles to My Morning Jacket to Talking Heads - add in some funk and hip-hop. Very diverse and solid.
Entourage is not cheap, but they are worth it if you have budget for 8-9 professional musicians who will tear the roof off. Highly recommend them for any wedding or other event - really the perfect band.

Words can't express our eternal gratitude to Randy Stern and De Bois Entertainment for making it the most amazing wedding we could ever imagine. From the very beginning, Randy was the consummate professional. Before we chose to go with DeBois Entertainment, we saw and met with many of the wedding bands in Los Angeles. We decided to go with Randy and the High Rize Band. Randy was by far the easiest, the most pleasurable and flexible to work with. We were not the easiest couple to deal with -- we were planning a big wedding with guests from different backgrounds. Randy delivered and never said no to any of our requests, changes, suggestions, last minute additions, song requests, etc. He worked diligently with us, our wedding coordinator, the staff at the venue, the lighting people, videographers and the rest of the team. He went out of his way to meet us at the times convenient for us. He went above and beyond the call of duty.

The wedding band was something out of a storybook. Randy built out the stage and put together a 25 piece band. They sounded and looked immaculate. They played the songs we wanted them to play and did a stellar job with everything. The master of ceremonies was perfect. Our guests were raving about the band and the dance floor was full of people all night long. We couldn't imagine the band being this excellent. Randy, De Bois and the band gave us the best night of our lives that will be enshrined in our memories forever.

If you are looking for a wedding band, this is where you need to go. We went to over 30 weddings and met pretty much every band in LA. Randy is a true professional and we give him the highest recommendation. I want to express my praise and gratitude to Randy and his team and make sure future brides and grooms go to him for their special day. I really cannot imagine a better experience. If anyone wants to discuss this review, please don't hesitate to email me at sashafrid007@gmail.com.

My husband and I can't say enough good things about DeBois Entertainment and their band Entourage. The management was excellent, and the band was extremely flexible. They even learned a new song that we requested they play as a tribute to my husbands father who had recently passed away. It meant the world that they were able to learn it in such a short time. Most importantly, they know how to play a party and judge a crowd. Our wedding was amazing! We will remember our guests surrounding us on the dance floor late into the night. I also happen to be an event planner and would recommend this band to anyone who is looking for a fantastic wedding band.

If you are getting married in LA, want to have a 10 minute HORA and keep the party going all night - use de bois Entertainment! Mazta was the band we selected. We added 2 horns and 1 female vocalist, they killed it. Mazta was amazing. That band really knows how to get a Jew wedding party going. They are so talented and organized. From our first meeting with Randy to our last email with Terry, we were very impressed with de bois attention to detail and professionalism. Our wedding guests were dancing from 7:30 pm to 1 am. They played a wide range of music for the younger and the older guests. We received several compliment on the band during the wedding and post. It's worth the money, hire de bois and see if Mazta is available for your wedding. You will not be disappointed!

The band did a great job, looked great, were great hosts and made the reception very memorial for all! We went with 7 pieces instead of the usual 10 to try to watch the cost some. I would definitely recommend this company, and this band in particular.

We met with de Bois Entertainment and were impressed by the bands they represented and by their professionalism. Based on a video they showed us of a few wedding bands, we chose the Ricky V Band. We liked that the lead singer - Ricky V - could sing the rock songs and the female singer had a good range for any songs sung by women. We even spent an additional $750 for a young, male African-American singer who could handle the motown songs.

On the day of the wedding, the band insisted upon being placed on the edge of the dance floor -- greatly limiting our dance area - even though we had wanted them to be stationed on a landing above the floor. De Bois said they would come by the venue BEFORE the wedding day to see if the band could play on the landing, but we really don't know if they ever did that. If they did, we never heard about it and were therefore surprised when we entered the room for the first time to do our choreographed salsa dance - with half the floor taken up by the band, we had to wing it during our first dance.

In addition to this, most of the band members were unrecognizeable to us. With the exception of Ricky V himself, NONE of the other musicians seemed to be the ones in the video we saw, specifically not the female singer or the African-American singer. This was so obvious to us that, for the first hour, we were convinced that this was not the band we hired. (These musicians were talented enough, but they were not what we expected. The de Bois contract states that a musician might be replaced if someone has a scheduling conflict or something, but in this case, almost the ENTIRE band was replaced without anyone saying a word to us!).

But the worst thing was this:
We were told by de Bois that, for a 4-hour reception, the band would play about 40-50 songs. We were given their playlist -- basically, a long list of songs that the band already knew how to perform. We were told that we could choose 10-15 must-play songs from the list. We could also designate the DO NOT play songs. We chose only 8 songs that were must-play tunes. The Ricky V Band played NONE - not one - of the songs on our must-play list. Also, we indicated 90 other songs from which to choose and told them that all other songs should be considered DO NOT PLAY. They completely ignored our request and basically played what they wanted to, without regard to what we asked them to play.

The following Monday, just before leaving for our honeymoon, we called de Bois to tell them of our less-than-satisfactory experience. They were "sorry" but offered nothing more than that. We weren't trying to get our money back, but, in the name of professional courtesy we did expect something more than, "gee, that's too bad about your wedding day -- I guess there is nothing we can do about it now."

I would advise any bride and groom to consider another entertainment company lest you get the "bait-and-switch" that we experienced.

We met with de Bois Entertainment and were impressed by the bands they represented and by their professionalism. Based on a video they showed us of a few wedding bands, we chose the Ricky V Band. We liked that the lead singer - Ricky V - could sing the rock songs and the female singer had a good range for any songs sung by women. We even spent an additional $750 for a young, male African-American singer who could handle the motown songs.

On the day of the wedding, the band insisted upon being placed on the edge of the dance floor -- greatly limiting our dance area - even though we had wanted them to be stationed on a landing above the floor. De Bois said they would come by the venue BEFORE the wedding day to see if the band could play on the landing, but we really don't know if they ever did that. If they did, we never heard about it and were therefore surprised when we entered the room for the first time to do our choreographed salsa dance - with half the floor taken up by the band, we had to wing it during our first dance.

In addition to this, most of the band members were unrecognizeable to us. With the exception of Ricky V himself, NONE of the other musicians seemed to be the ones in the video we saw, specifically not the female singer or the African-American singer.
