New to Wedding Wire as a featured act, reviews coming, available immediately upon request, Gary Jenkins and Thundering Hearts is a high-energy show/dance band and DJ specializing in classic rock, r & b, and contemporary country music. They’ve performed on the private and corporate markets for fifteen years and have shared the stage with “Huey Lewis and the News”, “ Kenny Loggins”, “KC and the Sunshine Band”, “Jay Leno”, “Martina McBride”, “Marty Stuart”, “Diamond Rio”,“Charlie Daniels” and “Dierks Bentley.”

Although a nationally known corporate act (Coke, ATT, Harley Davidson, and many others), they perform at private functions and weddings where people want more than a typical band. Since Gary performs as a comedic emcee at events throughout the year, these skills come in handy for the bride and groom who want to take the party portion of the evening to the next level. His emcee skills, plus the level of excellence and showmanship displayed by the top notch Nashville players in the band, create a unique entertainment experience.

Gary on weddings: “I take weddings very, very seriously, even more seriously than our corporate shows. I know this is one of the most important days of the Bride and Groom’s lives and I want to communicate with them as much as possible before the event so I can give them the exact experience they desire. If they want a low key background band, we can be that band. If they want a great party and or have friends and family members who play or sing or who I might coax into a “spot-light dance”, we can REALLY be that band. I’m going to do my research and be prepared to create that crazy/special/photo or video moment where family and friends are celebrating, dancing, laughing, and having the time of their lives. We are never intrusive. We know the event is not about “us”. We are focused on the Bride, Groom, and their two families coming together”.

If you want a great band, able to create show-stopping moments musically, with a band leader who is a great entertainer/emcee, and who will customize the music and level of interaction to your desire, consider Gary Jenkins and Thundering Hearts.

*Gary and the band can reduce their size incrementally (6, 5, 4, 3, 2) down to one, which is Gary providing his emcee services, custom interactive comedy (if requested), that is related to the Bride and Groom, and live acoustic, vocals, and harmonica along with 4,000 songs on his DJ rig for a custom live entertainment/DJ experience that is perfect for smaller venues and budgets. We will completely customize this and all performances for your event! Read less

Gary Jenkins is a terrific entertainer and his band is chock-full of talent! He was delightful to work with and met every request we made of him. He went out of his way to personalize our event, making sure to okay requested songs and to accommodate our bridal party dance number. He is a great stand up comedian and kept the party going from beginning to end. I would use Gary Jenkins and the Thindering Hearts for future events and will recommend him to all of my friends! He made our wedding the special party and celebration I always dreamed of!

Gary made my son's wedding go off without a hitch! He took time to get to know the bride and groom, kept the crowd engaged and knew exactly what to play. Everyone still talks about it a year later. Best choice ever!

Gary Jenkins and the Thundering Hearts were the perfect band for our wedding reception. Very reliable and easy to work with. They learned our first dance song and performed it beautifully. Gary is a crowd pleaser and kept the guests entertained all evening! I worked corporate events at the time and wouldn't have chosen a different band to play my wedding! They're great!

We used Gary Jenkins as our band for our wedding reception. When we hired Gary we got much more than just an amazing band we also got a great emcee who kept the flow of the reception moving. Gary was very easy to work with, and even brought in specific band members to fit the music we selected. The dance floor was full the entire evening. To this day people talk about two things from our wedding reception, the great food and the amazing band!
