Raising Cain specializes in extraordinary weddings! When you're looking for that special, exceptional wedding that "rises above the ordinary," look no further than Raising Cain. Spectacular, amazing weddings and performances are our trademark since 2001. Just click on the "Videos" tab on your screen, and you'll see just how true that is. And as you're doing this, be sure to also click the little button in the lower right hand corner of the video viewer for full-screen viewing...our brand new video looks AMAZING in full screen mode!

With Raising Cain, your dance floor is PACKED and your reception is epic! Can you say big fun?! All your guests will ask "Where did you find this amazing band?!"

Raising Cain just received Wedding Wire's 2014 "Couples' Choice Award," and we are deeply honored. According to Wedding Wire, this award "recognizes the top 5% of local wedding professionals who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Winners are determined by recent reviews and extensive surveys from over a million WeddingWire newlyweds."

In 2012, Raising Cain was awarded "Best Variety Band in the Nation" (out of 10,000 groups considered) by the largest online booking site in the U.S. And in 2010, Raising Cain, alone, was selected by the White House Social Director to play for President Obama and 1,000 guests at a gala, black-tie event in Denver. (More than 50 Colorado bands were considered.)

Ultra-fun dance party receptions are our specialty! Rather than just playing "one type" of music, we pride ourselves in covering no less than 10 styles of music really, really well. From ultra modern pop, to 80s, to funk, disco, classic rock, Motown, to country, we play it all and we play it great.

We feature two extraordinary lead singers - one male, one female. So we cover an incredible amount of music by both male and female popular artists, backed by extraordinary lead guitar, rhythm guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. We can also add horns as an option.

We can play your ceremony, too. Three out of five people in the core group are classically trained musicians, doubling on classical violin, classical guitar, and classical piano. This classical subgroup of ours is called The Adagio Strings. We can also arrange a full string quartet if you prefer.

As a result, Raising Cain is your "one stop solution" for a perfect, extraordinary wedding!



We tend to book up quickly, so contact us right away at 303-499-3395, mike@raisingcain, or www.raisingcain.org! Read less

Some of the best money spent on our wedding was for this band--they were awesome!!! The band's leader/liason, Mike Marsh, said it best to me when he said, "Our job is to pay attention to the details so that you don't have to." For a person who is normally OCD, this meant so much to me and took away a lot of the burden! They were extremely professional, easy to communicate with, and very quick to respond to any questions/issues. They were right on cue the whole night and played a great variety of music with AWESOME VOCALS that kept people dancing and having fun. On several occasions, I caught myself looking for an iPod because they sounded so much like the original artist of whatever song they were playing. We look forward to hopefully seeing them at other events in the future!

Raisin Cain is an amazing band! They played at my wedding at Red Rocks in May 2014. Very professional and they rocked the place!! I can't tell you how many of my guests have complimented our choice in a band. The music they played hit various genres which pleased the guests. The band learned one song which we selected as the song for our first dance. It was "Lucky" by Jason Mraz. Wow! They mastered it! Furthermore, I had a few guests ask if Raisin Cain plays at public venues just so they could go listen to them. My advice to any person looking for an exceptional band...book this band immediately. You won't be disappointed!

Raising Cain Band delivered a fantastic wedding band experience. The band had great musicians and singers--not just one, but three great singers. They played a variety of music and we loved the wedding dinner music which offered great songs from the 1930s & 1940s--which many of us over 60s guests just loved. Then the rock and roll dancing music got underway after the cake cutting. Awesome!

We had the benefit of having Raising Cain play at our wedding this year and we were astounded by the quality musicianship and incredible diversity of song selection. The band did an excellent job at playing off the vibes of our guests and keeping everyone on the dance floor. We especially appreciated the care given to set up the sound system so, even in an intimate setting like ours, we could listen to the music and have conversations with those around us. We highly recommend this combo!

Raising Cain provided the music at my sisters wedding and I was amazed at the quality and variety. They played a wonderful range to keep everyone on the dance floor, and at times I forgot I was listening to a band the quality was that good. One of the best things about Raising Cain is they ensure the sound matches the venue. The sound was at the perfect level that you could still have a conversation and not have to yell or repeat yourself. Plus, afterwards I did not have that "fuzz" feeling in my ears. I highly recommend booking Raising Cain for any event, they are the best!

This band's performance was beyond our expectation! I had not heard them play prior to our wedding...they were recommended to us by someone else who had used them. They were awesome and everyone got out on the dance floor. We had so much fun! Not to mention that working with them prior to the wedding was a real pleasure. They really know the business and are extremely professional. We could not have been happier. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

We hired Raising Cain to play both our wedding ceremony and reception. From the moment we hired them, we were so impressed by their professionalism and responsiveness. The Band's manager stayed in close contact in the weeks leading up to the wedding and helped us with all sorts of planning details. Since we did not have a wedding coordinator, it was extremely helpful to work with a band that was so knowledgeable about weddings and that could answer any question wedding-related. On the wedding day, we could not have been more happy with Raising Cain's performance. A few of the band members played classical music during our ceremony. They were prompt in setting up, professional, polite, and the classical music added so much to the processional. As for the ceremony, the band was fantastic. They adhered to our favorite genres, played a great horah, learned our favorite song for our first dance, and truly got everyone dancing. They were lively and extremely talented and we couldn't have asked for more for our wedding. We would 110% recommend them for a wedding or any party!

Raising Cain performed at my June 22nd wedding and they were amazing! Mike, the manager was so professional and very responsive and helpful whenever I had any questions regarding the planning process. He and my wedding planner worked very well together coordinating timelines and the flow of the ceremony and reception were flawless. I gave the band a list of song that I wanted them to perform and they sang all of the ones I wanted and all of the guests were out on the dance floor all night. Everyone had such a wonderful time and we have the band to thank for a lot of it!

We had an awesome experience with the Raising Cain Band. Mike, the manager, was extremely responsive, patient, and helpful in guiding the planning process in terms of how the band fit into the timeline, MC'ing, etc. We were planning the wedding from long-distance so didn't have a chance to hear them live before the day of, but they were exactly as good as I hoped the would be and got all of the wedding guests out on the dance floor. We had a blast that night, and know that much of the credit goes to the great music!

Mike and Raising Cain did an amazing job for our wedding! We spent a lot of time beforehand trying to figure out what songs we wanted for the ceremony, first dances, etc... Mike was very responsive to all our e-mails and was extremely helpful! He and the band spent a lot of time before our big day making sure everything was perfect, and even learned a song for us for our first dance. He even arranged our ceremony and cocktail hour music.

That night, the band was amazing! Not only are they very talented and their music rocked, but their energy on stage really made it a night to remember; you could tell that they love playing and were really having a good time on stage. They even went out of their way to help me surprise my wife with my own "musical talent" Over a month since our wedding and family and friends are still telling us how much they enjoyed our band!

Thank you Raising Cain for a truly magical and unforgettable night!

Mike and the Raising Cain band did a tremendous job at our wedding. For me, having live music during our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception is really important so I searched for a great band. When I ran across Raising Cain my search stopped. They were even more impressive live! Mike was great to work with as he walked us through the whole process from start to finish. We received tons of complements from people who attended our wedding saying how good the band was. 5 star performance!

I was so impressed with the professionalism and diversity of this group! They played for my daughter's wedding dance and I got compliments the entire evening on how great the band was! They appealed to everyone on our guest list due to their wide selection of songs - everything from jazzy blues during
dinner to swing music, country, classic rock and current hits for the dance. They even performed the couples' first dance song - something my daughter requested that wasn't on their playlist, but the band learned it and perfected it just for that day!

The band's manager, Mike, also played violin for the ceremony creating the absolute perfect
ambiance for the outdoor wedding - strings among the aspens- is there anything more beautiful?! We are so glad we chose this group! They are remarkable!!

Let me first start by saying my husband and I researched wedding music for months. In fact the band was the last "big" vendor that we hired (we had already picked the venue, food, photographer, and florist), because we knew it would be a huge part of the wedding reception and we wanted it to be fun and memorable to all. After watching many wedding bands play in the Denver area, we also watched videos, read reviews, called numerous others, but still couldn't find the "one" band with versatile style, that we were excited to have at our wedding. Some bands just sounded ok, and would have done the job, but we weren't impressed. Others were great, but to be great they had to have 10 musicians or so, and their cost was well above our budget. We almost settled for an ok band or DJ, but then we stumbled upon Raising Cain's website while doing one last hopeful Google search for Colorado bands. We liked what we saw. We contacted Mike who was very responsive and invited us to an open house that same week. We were very impressed, and hired them after a few days. We just had our wedding on May 18th, and when we look back, we couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Raising Cain. Many of our guests who don't normally dance, danced. Many who like to go to bed early, stayed until the very end and told us it was the most fun wedding they had been to. Most importantly - we had a blast! Mike was very organized, and communicated with us well ahead of time to ask about our song preferences. We had a pianist for the cocktail hour, then jazzy music for the dinner duration, and dance music the rest of the night. We even had a last minute change to our timeline (we ended up doing toasts and cake cutting earlier than planned), and the band adjusted flawlessly. Take a look at their song list. It's hard to find other bands that offer this much variety. Raising Cain is wonderful, and their videos don't do justice to how they sound live. You won't be disappointed! :-)

Raising Cain played at our wedding in July and we could not have been more pleased with them. Our wedding planner first recommended them to us, and we went to one of their open house nights. They were so professional with still being personal and took the opportunity to get to know us, our style, and what we were wanting for our wedding.

At their open house, both my fiance and I, we VERY impressed with the variety of songs and genres that they offered and played wonderfully!! I was also very impressed to hear that many of them have degrees in their instruments, and the others have played for a very long time, which showed in their skill level.

They were very professional when dealing with myself and our wedding planner, and covered all the bases so that there we no questions when it came to the wedding day, which made it run so smoothy. Mike, who was our contact, could not have been nicer and was truly a pleasure to work with.

We hired them to not only play at our reception, but also we had an acoustic guitarist for the ceremony, and a jazz pianist for the cocktail hour. Both we were wonderful and really set the tone for the wedding.

My new husband and I, along with MANY of our guests stayed until the end of the night and danced the night away to the sounds of Raising Cain. Even after the wedding, our guests mentioned how much they enjoyed the band at our wedding, and how talented they were.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Raising Cain to any other bride for their wedding, or for any event where you want a professional, talented, FABULOUS and fun live band at.

Raising Cain was wonderful. We danced the night away and virtually everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor having a fabulous time. I've lost track of how many people came up to me afterward to say it was the most fun wedding they'd ever attended--and I give a lot of credit for that to the band. I'm a bit of a music snob and I can say they are excellent musicians who play a great all-around set for a diverse audience. They are also professional, timely and responsive. Raising Cain was not the cheapest band we found, but the quality of their music was better and to us it was well worth it to know we could rely on top quality and a great experience for our guests. Their song list was more than adequate. We didn't have to worry at all about this band doing their job, and they were willing to accommodate some special requests we had, including playing bluegrass during cocktail hour. I am so happy we chose Raising Cain--we now have vibrant memories of our wedding day to last the rest of our lives.

I cannot give high enough praise for Raising Cain as a wedding band. Simply put: they are an ideal one-stop-shop for ceremony and reception musical needs.

Mike and his crew of professionals have clearly been doing this for a while: their "cheat sheet" for the planning and execution of the event was remarkably thorough and ensured that everything went without a hitch. It was particularly helpful for us to have this as a guide early on in the event planning process since we were planning our own ceremony.

Their flexibility and capability ensures that whatever style of ceremony or reception you have in mind, they will have the personnel to make it happen (note: except for horns). We contracted a guitar-violin duo for the ceremony and the full 5-piece band for the reception and it fit our wedding size and style perfectly. They also helped to provide microphones and amplifiers for the ceremony itself - a nice added touch that saved us from finding a rental company at the last second.

Their repertoire covers every major genre/decade of music and provides enough variety within each genre to fill an evening, ensuring the performance is personalized enough for the couple as well as their guests. The quality of the performances leaves nothing to be desired... if they can't get your guests movin' and groovin' or singing along then nothing will.

As a final added bonus the group is committed to learning and performing a song of your choice for the reception - it's no wonder they have such a wide repertoire, including a lot of current hits. This option alone gives your special day a uniqueness, quality, and personalization that is tough to match for the price.

Raising Cain exceeded my expectations at my wedding! They play all genres of music and do it well! I was blown away by how much fun they were to have for my reception. They also made accomadations for our dinner hour because of how my venue is set up - they brought an extra sound system to set up and play dinner music - it was wonderful and thoughtful. I highly recommend Raising Cain for your special day or any other event!
