Our wedding day was absolutely amazing! Livewire did such an amazing job at our wedding reception. From the moment we fell in love with them at the showcase to the very last song they played at our wedding, Livewire was such a pleasure to work with. Anthony made the whole process so easy and very comfortable. He worked with us and kept constant communication to make sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. On the day of the wedding, the band showed up very early to setup and practice and we're ready to rock by the time the reception started. Chantel first greeted us to go over everyone's names and give instructions. She was really nice and seemed genuinely excited about the wedding. Her voice and performances were so incredible. Our guests are still talking about her ability to sing and entertain. She also honored one of our requests during the wedding to sing a specific song and it was beautiful. Jimmy sang our wedding song and nailed it. It was a song that was not on their playlist, but he definitely took the time to practice and it sounded exactly the way we wanted to hear it. Clurel started off the night with a great dance song and really got all of the energy up. Finally, a big shout out to Ashanti who really surprised us with her performances. She came out into the crowd on many occasions to get all of the guests involved in the song. She even made it a point to come up to me and my beautiful bride on multiple occasions to see how we were doing and talk with us. Ashanti was definitely a big hit with our guests. Overall, I highly recommend Livewire for your wedding reception. You will not be disappointed!!!

Live Wire performed at my son and daughter in law's wedding on July 4, 2105 at the Fountainhead. They had all the guests on the dance floor the entire evening. They learned four special songs for the couple, including their wedding song. Anthony and the entire band were wonderful to work with. Friends and family are still talking about how wonderful Live Wire were a month later!!! We would highly recommend them for an amazing wedding experience !!

There are no words to describe how perfect in every way the band was for my daughters wedding this past Friday night at Giorgios in Wading River. From the constant communication during the planning stages, to arriving early and ready to go on a holiday weekend, we could not have made a better decision. I have not stopped receiving messages about how fabulous the night was because of your talented group of musicians. People have told me that they have never seen a dance floor so packed. Thank you so very much. Please keep us in mind if you need any recommendations and of course, we will send pictures when we get them back!!!

Livewire Entertainment played at our wedding and they were absolutely amazing. They can play anything with perfection; from my first dance Michael Franti's, Life is better with you, to a Phantom of the Opera tune for my dance with my Father. Everyone was on the dance floor after our first dance and the dance floor was full the entire night. They read the crowd and performed an ideal mixture to please everyone from Frank Sinatra during dinner into crowd pleasing dance songs as the night grew to a close. Every guest at our wedding commented on how fantastic the band was and their incredible versatility.

I really couldn't have dreamed it to be any better. They really made our day special. Call them today if you are looking for a band.

I do not even know where to begin to rave about how incredible Live Wire Entertainment was at our wedding. Music and good food are the essential components to a good wedding so we were very picky about finding the best wedding band. We knew our family and friends we needed a very energetic band that could play a wide variety of music. LIve Wire blew our expectations out of water. The dance floor was packed from the very first song till the last one. They played such a range of music - current dance to motown to 80s - and every song sounded like a recording of the original. The week before the wedding I had asked Anthony if the band could do a mashup of Hakuna Matta and Dont Worry be happy as a tribute to my late father, it was amazing to say the least. I couldnt believe in such a short period of time they were not only able to learn it but perfected it! All of our friends and family are still weeks later talking about how much they loved our band. We have been told countless times how they were best wedding band anyone had ever been to. I would absolutely hands down recommend this band to anyone looking for a wedding band - and would love an invite so we can hear them again!!!!

I can't say enough great things about the band! Live music and dancing were the most important element of our wedding, and Live Wire Entertainment did not disappoint! From the very first song to the last song, each and every single one of our guests was on the dance floor celebrating our marriage with us! From oldies and classics to today's best hits, the band played it all. They did a great job reading the room, and playing the music that got everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor. As the night came to a close, no one wanted to leave the dance floor. Everyone started chanting "one more song, one more song" until the band played one final Bruce Springsteen. It was the perfect ending to a perfect night, and we can't thank Live Wire Entertainment enough. Everyone is still raving about the music!

Live wire is the best! We went to their showcase and knew we wanted to book them immediately. It's been over a month since our wedding and we are still having people tell us how amazing our band was. They are professional, reasonably priced (we contacted several other bands and all were much more expensive) and insanely talented. They were so great to work with and even learned our unconventional wedding song and accommodated some other requests we had. They kept everyone on the dance floor and definitely helped make our wedding a memorable one!

Live wire is the best! We went to their showcase and knew we wanted to book them immediately. It's been over a month since our wedding and we are still having people tell us how amazing our band was. They are professional, reasonably priced (we contacted several other bands and all were much more expensive) and insanely talented.

Best. Band. Ever! We had Live Wire play at our wedding, and they were absolutely incredible. Not one of our guests was in their seat. They were all out on the dance floor the entire night. You NEED to hire them. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding.

We loved having Live Wire for our wedding band! We received so many compliments on the band throughout the night and thought they did an amazing job of keeping the energy up at our wedding! They provide a great mix of music and are responsive to requests made by the bride and groom. I highly recommend them and one of my friends has already booked them for her spring wedding!

We had an 8 piece band for our October wedding. To say that they were fantastic is an understatement. We had seen them at my cousin's wedding 18 months earlier, so we knew they would be great, but they exceeded our expectations. The dance floor was full all night long.

A great band was my in-laws' only request. They had never heard or heard of Live Wire, but they were blown away by the performance. They and their friends, guests at many weddings, keep talking about Live Wire and several have referred them to other friends. Everyone was particularly complimentary of the lead singer, Chantele.

The song we wanted for our first dance wasn't in their repertoire but they learned it for us and performed it well.

We highly recommend hiring Live Wire for any party.
