Before you hire a band for your wedding make sure you know what you want.

Do you really want to hire a "Wedding Band"? If you do there are dozens of great ones on this web page and just about all of them will do a good job.

OR do you want a younger, FUN, Dance Party Band that knows how to play weddings? A band that has been featured by independent experts as one of the best bands in Philadelphia. A band that can play anything from Billy Joel to FloRida. Diana Ross to Ke$ha. Frank Sinatra to Bon Jovi or Bruno Mars, Classic rock, Motown, Top 40! Plain and simple Love Jones brings the party! Fronted by some of the most talented young vocalists in the Philadelphia area and backed by a strong diverse band, Love Jones isn't your parent’s stuffy old wedding band. We are fun, spontaneous, and have a stage energy that is contagious to your guests!

Your wedding really is all about the fun, but a band has to be so much more than fun. You spend so much time and energy planning your wedding but eventually there comes a time when you have to turn everything over to your vendors. You have to trust them... THAT IS SUCH A HARD THING TO DO!! But dealing directly with Mark the band owner and band leader, not an agent or salesperson, helps relieve some of the stress. You get to work and plan with the person that will actually be at your wedding! Mark is part wedding planner, part friend, and the event MC. When the big day arrives you will feel very comfortable knowing he is at the reception working with the staff to make sure everything runs the way you planned!! Search the internet, read the reviews and you'll see why this band is so successful!

Agency bands will charge thousands of dollars more and you might not even get the same musicians that you hired! We can offer you a complete package including a cocktail hour musician, the 8 piece band, a sound tech, light tech and MC for thousands less! Finally while looking at bands, ask the band leader if they use tracks when they play. Most bands actually play recorded music behind them while they are playing!!! Essentially what you get is a Karaoke band! We are one of the very few bands in the area that don’t play to tracks. We play all instruments LIVE!!!

If you have any question or to make an appointment to see us perform at our studio in Manayunk, please feel free to call us at 610-308-2067

This is your big day. Make the right decision, your parents wedding band or a Fun Dance Party Band Read less

Perfect wedding band at a very reasonable price! Love Jones played our wedding at the Crystal Tea Room (Philadelphia) and were fantastic. They created such a great energy that had our guests (about 400 people) dancing throughout the night. We picked them over other wedding bands because we felt their songs sounded more like the originals rather than a wedding version with a big brass sound. They are great at reading the crowd and adjusting their set list accordingly. They even let me jump on stage and play a song with them which was the highlight of my night.

Gary was extremely helpful throughout the process leading up to the big day, and made us feel comfortable that we were in good hands. He contacted us at all the right times, provided sound equipment for our two ceremonies and cocktail hour, and learned to pronounce some tough names for introductions. Their keyboardist learned a couple songs for our processional and sounded great as well.

Overall, we couldn't be happier with the choice we made. All of our guests mentioned how good the band was. And the food and band pretty much make the night.

Love Jones was absolutely amazing!! All we wanted for our wedding was for our guests to be on their feet dancing the entire time and Love Jones made that happen! Gary offered many great suggestions to allow the day to run smoothly and took the worrying out of our hands. I truly felt confident in our choice with this band. All we had to do was show up and enjoy the day, Gary made sure everyone was there they needed to be at the time they needed to be there. Would hire them again in a heartbeat! You won't be disappointed!

Love Jones Band was spectacular. From the low-key tunes at the cocktail played on the sax and the piano to the high energy dance songs played during our wedding reception, Love Jones was simply amazing. Everyone was up and dancing the entire night. The perfect blend of oldies and new age music was played. Gary was such a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. Not once did I have a worry about how things would go at the wedding. Gary paid such close attention to detail and helped ensure that I was comfortable with the flow of the night so everything went smoothly. I would absolutely recommend Love Jones Band for your next event -- you will not be disappointed!!! Thank you Gary and team for a wonderful night and a rockin' party!!

Over the top spectacular in every way. The sound was amplified perfectly for the venue. The songs for the bride and groom were sung even better than the original artist. Gary was easy to work with, very responsive to calls and emails and the group rocked the party. Our only regret is the wedding is over but the guests are still raving about the Love Jones Band. The compliments we have received are endless but not surprising as there were empty seats all evening with a full dance floor. The schedule of the evening was perfect from the pianist and horns at the cocktail hour to the enjoyable dinner music to the rocking final set. Thank you Gary and fellow band members and vocalists for a fabulous evening that will forever be in our fond memories. Our daughters wedding was spectacular and we could not done it without you

WOW! We danced our butts off at our wedding and it was amazing! Love Jones worked with us before the wedding to get a feel for what kind of music we liked and wanted and put together an amazing set list that had our whole wedding on the dance floor! Every single guest complimented the music and how much fun they had! If you want to have a blast with live music, oldies, classics, and new top hits then you want Love Jones!

You are crazy to not book The Love Jones band as your wedding band right this minute! They truly made our wedding! Gary was so easy to work with and helped plan every detail. He was able to give our cocktail hour the romantic feel that we wanted and then carry that throughout dinner, and then the band really got EVERYONE on the dance floor for the rest of the night! I highly recommend using The Love Jones Band for both your cocktail hour and wedding reception!

Having a band at our wedding was the one thing that my husband and I were adamant about - but we did not want a cheesy "wedding band." I happened upon The Love Jones Band on one of the wedding sites and read a whole bunch of awesome reviews. Their reviews are excellent because they are an excellent band, period. However, I was initially a little hesitant because they were very reasonably priced compared to other wedding bands in the area - which made me worried that perhaps they were not very good. Gary held our date for us and suggested that we come see them at a local bar they were playing at. We did and we booked them the next day. They are that good. They do not feel like a cheesy "wedding band" in the least and their songs and versatility are amazing.

We hired them for our ceremony as well as the reception. At the ceremony the pianist did a great job and Gary was there early that day to make sure everything was set up and went smoothly. Gary is awesome - he was responsive, organized, and took care of everything that we asked of him. At the reception, our guests loved the band and could not stop talking about how talented they are. They learned three songs for us, which they did a fabulous job on. They performed for 5 hours and sounded just as good and had just as much energy up until the very last song of the night. I would recommend The Love Jones Band to anyone - you absolutely cannot go wrong with them.

Where do I begin? After driving Gary crazy with my own insecurities, I'm surprised that he even wanted to perform at my daughter's wedding at all. Gary was so intent on having me trust him that I look back on it and feel ashamed of myself. I have one daughter and only one chance to give her the dream wedding that she wanted. She wanted a DJ and her dad and I wanted to have a band. After seeing how much her father loved them at their showcase, the kids figured that they would let dad have his own way. The Love Jones Band didn't fail to deliver. They were AMAZING!!! They had everyone on the dance floor just as Gary had promised me that he would. I had dozens of people asking me their name and telling me how great they were and I'm talking about a couple that had their wedding at the Four Seasons --- they were so impressed! I knew the food was going to be great and needed the band to be terrific. The Love Jones Band delivered the whole night long! Please go to their showcase, listen to them, and book them for your next affair. You will not be disappointed. At the end of the night, Gary approached my husband and I separately to see if we were happy and if they could improve upon anything. As Gary had said to me in an email, he would think of Amanda's wedding as if it was his daughter's wedding and he did! Gary and the band are terrific and a real class act! Thank you so much, Gary, for helping to make Amanda and Chris's dream wedding a reality!!!

Love Jones was amazing!!!!! Gary was super helpful before our wedding, and even arranged for us to have a last-minute switch for our first dance (I changed my mind literally 3 days before the wedding and he made it happen- totally amazing). The music was awesome and the vibe the band has is really lively and fun and upbeat. Also each person in the band was really nice.
Everyone danced basically for the whole reception- the music appealed to all ages and all tastes. My maid of honor loved them so much that she has chosen them for her wedding next spring.
