One word, PERFECT! The first decision we made about our wedding was to have a live band and Band by Design was amazing! Everyone is still taking about how good they were and how the party never stopped. Best money I spent!

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!

They even learned 3 new songs for us, and spent a large amount of time helping to plan the day. Numerous guests complimented the band, and they helped make the evening fun for everyone.

I can honestly say that Design Band made our wedding. We planned our wedding date around their availability and I am so glad that we did! They were very responsive to pre-wedding emails and phone calls, and they were totally flexible on what kind of mood we were looking for. Of course, we wanted a fun and vibrant mood, and they sure provided the party of the YEAR for us.
I also felt completely comfortable just letting them play a list they thought was great and then I didn't have to worry about it. They are the consummate professionals.

I loved the Design Band! They did such an amazing job at the wedding. Many guests begged me for their information to have them at their own events. They kept the party going and made great jokes. They were professional and fun--a hard balance to get!

We are a musical theater family and had many entertainers in attendance. Everyone "sang" the praises of The Design Band. Simply, they are the best wedding band I've ever heard.

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."
