Your relationship with E3 Detroit will be the best wedding-related experience you can possibly have.

What separates the truly unique, top tier wedding service providers from the mass majority of weekend-warriors and part timers? What sets apart the passionate industry leaders from those who are interested in a quick dollar and just booking a large quantity of events? It's the relationships with our clients and their families. It's the unending pursuit of bettering ourselves and developing our skills and knowledge through involvement and education. Mostly though, it comes down to caring about what we do and how we do it. Knowing that we have an opportunity to take ANY event and make it the absolute best it can possibly be. This is why E3 Detroit exists.

There are many providers out there, some on this very weddingwire.com list, who will never know you apart from last week or next week's client, who will never truly understand what makes you unique and what your perfect wedding day looks like. There are even some who don't know what music is on the charts today, let alone can play it with passion, style and accuracy. And for sure, there are those who will portray an image to you that is nowhere near who and what they really are. We encourage you to meet us, talk to us, grill us and be sure we are the right fit for you. Let us help you shape your wedding into exactly what you've envisioned in your head and heart your whole life. This is what we do every day, and our past clients, who are now our current and future friends, will be happy to let you know how far we are willing to go to make sure this happens.

Our bands are cool, not cheesy. That alone separates us from a majority of the providers out there. Our bands are exactly who we present them to be. They actually exist, and they actually play every weekend together. We don't assemble them on the fly after you've booked. Be wary of this! Know who you're hiring and what they provide, or you will absolutely regret it later.

We are a group of dedicated, passionate fun people who see our job as an opportunity to create amazing experiences. We’d like to take your vision and your goals, and mold them into something you’ll be proud to say you were a part of. Check out our WeddingWire profile or our website to learn more, and at your request, let us tell you more about our ability to give you the event of a lifetime. Read less

WOW!!! What an amazing reception, the band First Call made our wedding reception one of the most fun I have attended. Most of the guest, including myself, did not stop dancing all night long, even my husband who does not dance, danced!!! I may be a little partial because I'm the mother of the groom and of course I would have fun, anyway, but my family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our reception. First Call did a great job in selecting the music for the age range of guest. During the cocktail party, Rachel (the MC) made a special point to meet up with me, the mother of the groom, and the mother of the bride. She asked about names in bridal party, suggestions on the order of cutting the cake to who and when speeches would be made. She helped to make our exciting (and at times stressful) event, much easier. All I can say, if you want to have a fun reception that friends and family will never forget, hire First Call and E3 Detroit, they are definitely WORTH IT!!!!!

Our guests are STILL raving about the music from our wedding -- almost two months later. The Dan Rafferty Band made the wedding a success -- and this is NO over-statement. They are a dream. Incredibly talented, versatile, warm, professional, and an over-all JOY to get to know through what's sure to be a busy (and sometimes stressful!) engagement year. I will continue to recommend them to every bridal couple I meet. =)

AMAZING! Dan Rafferty Band got everyone at our wedding up on the dance floor the whole night. I got so many compliments after the wedding about the band. They were so professional and easy to work with. Derek is responsive and really took the time to get to know us and cared about our wedding! I would highly recommend. Great Value!

The Dan Rafferty Band is awesome! If you're looking for a band to make your reception fun, this is it. They're pricey, but they're definitely worth it and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the music and the MC. Derrick is great to work with and really makes sure the night runs smoothly and that everyone has a great time. Booking this band was one of our smartest wedding choices.

I can not say enough great things about The Dan Rafferty Band! If you are unsure about a band vs. dj or you have several choices in mind, I encourage you to contact The Dan Rafferty Band. We were so impressed with them that we hired them on the spot. I think the band sets the tone for the wedding and The Dan Rafferty Band made our wedding an absolute blast! From the 2 jazz players during the ceremony, to the energetic and personalized MCing to the dance floor, everything was amazing! Everyone danced the whole night, to the point where the dance floor was still packed during the last song. My only regret is that we didn't book them for longer. We booked them until midnight but we could have danced for much, much longer. We highly, highly recommend The Dan Rafferty Band!

They met with us to discuss what we wanted the night to feel like and then majorly delivered. Derrek is quite the party started and emcee as well. IF YOU CAN AFFORD THEM...DO IT!!

Fantastic !!! We just had our daughters wedding at the Henry Ford Museum. I had not seen or heard the band perform prior to the wedding, so, was just a little concerned about the music because I do believe that music will make or break an event. WHAT A GREAT BAND ! They had the bridesmaids "performing" to Stop in the Name of Love, the musicians interacted with the guests on the dance floor, and the dance floor was constantly full. It was unbelieveable. Many comments from our guests about the great band. This is money well spent if you want to have a memorable event.

The DRB is AWESOME. They really know how to get the party started and keep it going. From the cocktail hour to introductions, to the dance floor they are great. Our wedding was over 6 months ago and guests still ask about the band and mention how fantastic they were! Can't wait to catch them again around town!

Dan Rafferty was by far our favorite vendor. Our friends are still talking about how great they were and how much fun they had at our wedding.
They were so great to work with, did everything we asked, and made sure everyone- young and old, had a fantastic time.

The Dan Rafferty Band is AWESOME! The photographer (tres jolie photography) that endorses this band is actually referring to our wedding. Once the temperature dropped late into the evening it was freezing! The band kept it alive though. They never stopped singing which kept people dancing (and warm)! It was amazing to see people having such a great time when it was so cold that you could see your breath. We're still getting phone calls from friends and family telling us how great this band is.

Derek was awesome to work with. He made sure that every detail was taken care of and made sure that we had nothing to worry about. He is also a fantastic emcee. Energetic and knows how to get the crowd going.

Stop looking around at other bands, you're just going to keep coming back to them. Trust me.. they're fantastic.
