Design Band totally made our wedding celebration! From everything to cocktail hour, ceremony, and then the reception, everything was absolutely perfect! I worked with Manny to plan all the details and he made the process very easy. He was super responsive and made sure all the details were taken care of.

The band is very talented and read the crowd well! The party never stopped - the were people on the dance floor from the first dance all the way to the end of the night. Tracy was AMAZING! So funny and really engaged with the crowd. I am SO happy we decided to go with them. Our wedding would have never been as fun without them! If you're on the fence about going with a band or a DJ, go with Design Band! Best wedding planning decision we made!! They're the best!

We hired the Design Band sight unseen at the strong recommendation of a trusted friend. It was possibly the best decision we made for the wedding. I wrote a thank you to the band and am including some of my comments below:

"It has been three days since the wedding and we are still receiving phone calls from the guests. Everyone comments about what a great reception it was and they invariably want to know about the band. You all made a super wedding reception into an epic party that folks here will be talking about for years. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Your understanding of what to play for the audience, and the professional way you all do it amazed us. You are not just outstanding musicians but true entertainers. The ease that you let guests come to the microphone and just sing and dance along, or in the case of my niece, to do the lead vocals got the audience into it immediately. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. You did not just entertain at the party, you all became part of the party and that made it special.

Although we had not personally heard you perform prior to the wedding, the reviews from friends convinced us that you were the band we wanted. They were correct. If in the future anyone is looking for a reference for the Design Band please have them call us."

Design Band plays to the audience. If you are young or old, they will be able to entertain you, get you out on the dance floor, and ensure your night is memorable. They can play a wide range of music and sound authentic no matter what generation they are appealing to. If you want to ensure that your reception is a success, add them to the mix. You will not be sorry. We hired them recently in Seattle and had guests of varying ages many from San Francisco and we received such praise. The next day facebook entries were posted stating BEST WEDDING EVER. We even received hand written letters from another generation thanking us for the great time Thanks Design Band. You are not only talented but easy to work with. What a rare and delightful combination. Weddings cost so much and using this band will help ensure it is all worthwhile. 2/19/2011

Design Band was great. They were a huge hit and everyone loved them. It was great to see all of our guests up and dancing the whole night. They did a great job, and my friends can't wait until the next party so we can have the band play again.

Thanks Design Band!

A friend told me I would be the hero if I could get this band for my son's wedding. I was lucky to get them a year in advance on a cancellation. I was the hero and more. The wedding was months ago and friends are still commenting on how fun the band was. They tailored the song list to the mood and tempo of the evening and hit it perfect every time. They also provided background and processional music for the ceremony, and learned a new song to accompany a friend who sang. Overall I could not have been happier with the entire performance. When they finally stopped playing well after midnight the place was still packed-no one wanted it to end. My advice: get this band, then pick the date and place.

I heard that DesignBand would be awesome (some friends had told me they would be), but I just had no idea how awesome they would be! The ceremony music and sound was perfect – everything was right on cue like we had practiced it a hundred times. I felt very comfortable trusting them to take care of all of that, which was great, because I really didn’t want to have to worry about that as I was going down the aisle!
