I could not understand WHY my daughter was so insistent and willing to direct so much of our wedding budget toward the band, but she was totally right.....Memphis Train MADE the reception!! By the end of the evening, some of the band members were playing their instruments and dancing on the dance floor with the bride, groom and guests. They were so much fun and very professional. I had heard them several times before at Fiesta functions and knew they were good, but, I have to say, they MADE the reception. I highly recommend!!

We got SO many compliments about our band. Our guests are still talking about how awesome they were. Mark was so easy to work with from the start, super nice, accommodating, helpful. I wasn't expecting him to be at our venue all evening, but he was there the whole time making sure everything went well. The musicians were AMAZING, so fun and personal. It didn't feel like they were putting on a show for themselves (like I've seen a lot of wedding bands do), they were there to make sure our guests had the best time possible - and they delivered! I will recommend Memphis Train Revue to everyone! I hope I get to see them at a wedding soon, or even have them play a party sometime in the near future.

I may be a little biased since it was MY wedding, but even three months later people are still talking about how much fun they had at the reception. Forget the ceremony, forget the amazing food we provided... no, it is all about the band and the booty shaking that went down. To sum up the comments, "Memphis Train made the wedding the most memorable out of any wedding I have ever been to." And that is coming from parents too. Every so often I will think back to my wedding night and remember how sore my feet were after the non-stop dancing, how my face and belly hurt from all the laughing (especially from the twerk competition!), and the great memories that all my friends and family now share. Do yourself a favor, if you have any type of event that needs live music, make sure Memphis Train is your first call. You will not be disappointed.

P.S. I'm trying to think of new events I can throw just so I can bring them around again!

Memphis Train Revue was truly the reason our wedding was so amazing, stress-free, and memorable!

Mark was incredibly organized from the beginning, always promptly responding to all our emails and asking all the right questions (most we hadn't even though of ourselves!). They were all very professional and eased any concerns we had about announcements, timing, and the day-of schedule.

From the start of the ceremony to the end of the ceremony, their sound was amazing. Honestly, our guests are still, 3 months later, commenting on the band's incredible performance. They did a fun intro for the wedding party, a fabulous rendition of My Girl for the Father/Daughter dance, announced all the big events (cake cutting, garter toss, etc.) really interacted with the audience, and even paraded around the venue for a traditional New Orleans dance called the Second Line.

At the end of the evening, my mom's was just beaming, saying, "I want to be best friends with the band!"

I can't recommend them enough. Thank you Mark and Memphis Train!

WOW!!! What a show!!! This gorgeous team of talent brought their A game to our wedding. They rocked the staged and got everyone dancing. They were fun, classy and had some fun jokes. The only bad part was when they had to stop playing - which wasn't until midnight! We could have danced all night. They were wonderful, I highly recommend you hire them and invite me :-)

I wanted to wait a couple of days before writing as I wanted to be as fair as possible when explaining how great this experience was. This band might be a bit over your budget, but I can assure you if you have family & friends who enjoy dancing, MTR is totally worth the investment. I cannot tell you how many of my guests commented on how great and how perfect the band was for our daughter's wedding reception. AustinMusicWorks was so professional and throughout the planning process, I was very happy.
After just going through planning for a large, formal wedding, I can tell you the best thing you can do is hire great vendors and MTR would be on my list again. Having a great band is the best investment you can make in your wedding planning.
Unforgettable was the twerking contest - so much fun!

Memphis Train Revue was spectacular! Our outdoor reception was warm and muggy, but that didn't bother anyone once they took the stage. They packed the dance floor from start to finish. Everyone loved them!
