My husband and I would absolutely recommend Memphis Train Revue to any couple on the search for an amazing band for their wedding reception. They were an absolute blast and had everyone on the dance floor all night! Mark Grossman is a consummate professional - he was helpful and patient throughout the planning process. He was also key to making sure the night ran smoothly and was a ton of fun for us and our guests. We cannot say enough great things about this band. They will make your wedding unforgettable!

Memphis Train Revue did our wedding for us at the Bob Bullock in Austin, Texas on June 18, 2016! THEY WERE AWESOME!! They had everyone up on the dance floor in minutes! They learned our first dance song and even did an impromptu last dance song for us. If you can book this band, do it! I still have people telling us how fun the band us (we might have even got to dance on their stage!)

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!!

Memphis Train Revue was everything that everyone said they would be: High energy band with great musicians, extremely professional to work with, very quick to respond to any questions. The band set the tone for my daughter's wedding ---a very fun celebration and people danced the entire time. Mark Grossman made the process so easy from the very beginning. I never worried about this aspect of the wedding---I knew we were in very good hands with MTR.
I HIGHLY recommend this band!! They were FANTASTIC!!!

Memphis Train Revue is awesome! So many of our guests commented on how much they loved the band.
They sound great and have great energy - very talented group. Mark with AustinMusicWorks was so helpful leading up to the
event. His experience with wedding receptions was invaluable, and we were so grateful for his input and
advice regarding the flow of the reception. We hope we get to experience it all as a guest at future parties!

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 :-)
