Premiere is wonderful! Not only is their playlist versatile
and their instrumentalists and vocalists top notch, but they are flexible and very able to accommodate special requests with advance notice. They are professional and reliable---and once your event begins...you can sit back, relax and have that glass of champagne....Premiere will make everything happen just the way it was planned. People of all ages from 4 to 90 will get up and dance! We've had Premiere play for an engagement party in our back garden, as well as two wedding receptions! If we can use a band for a future event, it will be Premiere!!

The Premiere Band helped us create the perfect wedding. They were on time, always professional, and enthusiastic. We considered having a DJ play at the wedding to save money, but in hindsight our best decision was to hire The Premiere Band. We had older and younger people attending the wedding, and the band was able to play music from several decades so that everyone had a chance to hear one of their favorite songs. They have an amazing ability to get everyone on the dance floor. The band usually have 5 members, but you can add "brass" players for an additional fee. I strongly recommend paying the additional fee and even with that you are getting a tremendous deal for a lot of talented musicians.

Premiere band played for my wedding after they were referred to me by a friend, and they were great. They were the perfect band for us and played a huge variety. I agree with the other review about the wide variety, and that it was awesome to see everyone dancing regardless of age. I would definitely recommend them to my friends/family. They will also customize their set list and take out songs you don't like. Overall, it was a great experience and we had a blast.

Also, the contact person was very easy to get in touch with and communicate with. She was always happy to answer my questions and deal with our requests!

We hired Premiere Band after having heard them play at a friend's wedding. They were great about getting everyone up on the dance floor and playing music that appealed to a wide range of ages (everyone from our college friends to our parents were out on the dance floor).

I loved that they were able to customize the experience for us by adding a brass instrument to their band since we had some of our songs that we knew we would want that sound present for.

They played all of our special songs perfectly and were very flexible about playing CDs or prerecorded music if our songs hadn't been something easy for them to learn.

Great to work with and would very much recommend them!
