Since the early 90's, Music Garden has become the Southeast's most recognized entertainment agency. Our staff has booked bands and disc jockeys for tens of thousands of successful events including companies, wedding receptions, associations, festivals, inauguration and campaign parties, mardi gras balls, and many other types of events. Although our representatives are scattered throughout the southeast region, our booking and production capabilities are national. WHY USE MUSIC GARDEN? The reason for the Music Garden's successful track record is - to put it simply - our staff and our bands. There is a Music Garden representative in every major market in the Southeast. Each one of them is easy to reach if you need to ask questions or talk about changes or details. There are also staff members who advance details with each artist prior to your show. There are several "online agencies" around that offer discounts because they have no agent expense. The transaction takes place between the artist and the buyer online so there is never a discussion with a responsible agent. Unfortunately, that leaves no agent to help you, the customer, deal with details or problems that may arise, no agent to give advice on which bands to choose (saving you a lot of research) and no "back-up" plan if your chosen on-line band has an emergency at the last minute and can't make your event. At Music Garden, we have chosen to take the good, "old-fashioned," "hands-on" approach to cutomer service, which is people helping people. WE ARE PROUD OF OUR BANDS AND DISC JOCKEYS We are proud of our roster, which is comprised of the most professional and exciting bands and disc jockeys in the region. We also book casino nights, comedians, hypnotists, acoustic acts, dueling pianos, harpists, violinists, bagpipes, and other types of entertainment. To get more information, please browse our site. You will find pictures, songlists, references, audio, video, and other information on many of the bands. Contact Music Garden to find your local representative who will provide you with service in choosing a band that's right for your event. WHAT DOES MUSIC GARDEN HAVE TO OFFER? Unlimited Variety of Entertainment Choices Extensive Buying Power Quality Entertainment Reliability & Integrity Competitive Pricing The best roster of bands and entertainers in the Southeast Access to almost every act in the nation Friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and experienced staff We also offer event management services for all your national events.

We booked our band through music garden and we had a great experience! For awhile we couldn't decide on band or DJ and we are pretty picky about music, we didn't want anything cheesy. Dawn at music garden was a great help and even suggested less expensive options for ceremony music. We chose the Black Jackets for our band and they were awesome! They played a wide variety of music and everyone was on the dance floor all night! They listened to our requests and were a big part of such a fun reception! I would highly recommend going through music garden!

We had Troline at our reception, and they did an incredible job. They kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect band for our reception. We had such a great time at our wedding, and it would not have been as great without Trotline. Get them if you can!

Music Garden was easy to work with. Rick was very helpful and offered several suggestions at different price ranges. We ended up selecting Powerhouse of Mobile, AL and couldn't have been happier. They were fun, learned 2 songs for us and helped with our outdoor ceremony sound setup too. Music Garden sends you all paperwork quickly and will help you be 100% comfortable with your band selection.

This band is from Mobile but played our wedding in New Orleans and they were fabulous. They played every song we asked for and lots we did not. They arrived early, were professional, had great dance moves and their manager Sylvester Parsons was the easiest guy to work with. His wife came to our reception to assure which added a great deal of comfort in the craziness of a wedding day. They kept the party going for 4 hours and no one wanted to leave.

You should know that one of our biggest requirements for the reception was to have an incredible band, so everyone would dance...and 2nd Coming did just that! My husband, parents, and I went through every song on their song list and said "yes" or "no" to determine a very large play list for them. They loved having that list of songs "to play" because we knew the guests and the music they would like; therefore, our guests danced the entire time of the reception! We asked them not to play any soft music or instrumentals during the time after the wedding ceremony because we wanted everyone to begin celebrating! We booked 2nd Coming through Martin Brasfield at The Music Garden, and he was very easy to work with and helped us to find a band that would best-suit what we wanted. I can honestly say that as a twenty-something, 2nd Coming kept our friends, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and even our grandparents dancing the whole time at the reception with their energy and great music!
