Wow! We were looking for a band for our afternoon wedding reception that could play both American and Irish music. Because we had an afternoon reception, we were particularly interested in hiring a band that could get people dancing before sunset. Good Clean Fun exceeded our expectations. We couldn't believe how many people were dancing...young and old. So many of our guests commented to us afterwards about how great the band was, and how ours was one of the "funnest" weddings they ever attended. Trust me, this was all due to the awesome job Good Clean fun did. We can't wait to do a road trip to see them again sometime.

From the very beginning Michael was extremely professional, courteous, and prompt in his communications. He was very interested in making our wedding reception everything we wanted it to be.

For anyone looking for a band for a wedding (or any other occasion) I would highly recommend them.

We had Good Clean Fun play at our wedding ceremony, coctail hour and receiption. They were INCREDIBLE! They certainly knew how to get everyone up dancing and having a good time. Our wedding had people of all ages, nationalities and various tastes in music - they took all of that into account. As music lovers my husband and I had an idea of what we wanted played throughout our day. We thought the music list GCF provided gave the band an idea of our favorites and they integrated other songs througout the day to get people to enjoy the festivities. We loved that the volume was not too loud and that people could talk to those sitting next to them; but loud enough to party! The band went over everything in detail with us in the weeks leading and day of our wedding. The band was very professional, dressed appropriately. We felt that the MCing was the perfect combination of humor and respect. Everyone commented on how great GCF throughout the day. We highly recommend this band and give them 5+++++..... star review!

These guys were absolutely perfect. The live band may have been the best part about the whole wedding. Much classier than a dj. They played a good mix of the songs I selected from their wide repertoire and they even learned a song for our first dance, which they played beautifully ("feels like home" by randy newman). good price, good value, highly recommended. oh, and the classical guitarrist for the ceremony and cocktail hour was fabulous as well.

Hi Leah and Mark,
Thank you for the marvelous review!
The classical guitarist is my cousin John. Classical guitar is all he does, and he is a genius.
Thank you for having my band at your wedding reception.
And you nailed, a live band is just classier than a DJ!

Mike and Good Clean Fun were the reason people had sooooo much fun at my wedding!! They are not your typical wedding band. . .in a GOOD WAY! They are not like many of those enormous, loud and somewhat cheesy wedding bands you have seen time and time again. They are real musicians and their sound is amazing!! They know how to read a crowd and keep EVERYONE dancing! I have never seen a wedding where NO ONE was sitting because the band kept everyone on their feet all night! They even learned the song my husband and I picked as our first dance. . .and when I asked them to try and play and "acoustic, slower" version of the song they had picked, they delivered with a version i WISH i had a recording of!!
I can not thank them enough for the amazing job they did!

AMAZING band.
we used them as a 6 piece band and used their dj as well, but they are available as a 3 piece and up.

Mike was amazing to work with.
The band had everyone dancing all night.

They managed to play all of our requests and learned some songs just for us last minute.

They had my 70 year old dad dancing to Jump Around!

We did a "surprise" first dance, where we mixed Storybook Love with Apache and they did it just right! Mike didn't tell anyone else in the band what was happening so when the music skipped they all looked horrified as well, which helped fool our guests.
Mike even did the intro to Apache as seen in the episode of Fresh Prince.

It was amazing.
The band was great and people are still talking about them!
