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 2015 "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. Email mike@raisingcain.org, or call him at 303-324-6156, or visit our website at www.raisingcain.org! Read less

Raising Cain was amazing at our wedding! We decided to have dancing sets in between each meal course. We were not sure how our crowd would react to this set-up but the dance floor was full the entire time because Raising Cain was so good! Their energy and song-sets were so good that our guests couldn't help but get up and dance any time there was a chance! People didn't even want to take breaks. I heard from multiple guests about how great the band was! I was planning the wedding from out of town and relied on reviews when picking the band and I am so glad I went with RC. They truly made the night! I would not hesitate to book them for you wedding!

We could not have asked for a better wedding band. We initally wanted to use them as they played at our friends wedding a few years back and wow! They went above and beyond anything I could have asked for. We had a couple members play during our ceremony and cocktail hour and the music was just so lovely. During the reception, the band completely catered to the atmosphere and our guests loved every minute of dancing. Mike was super responsive to during our initial booking and with whatever questions I had leading up to wedding day. Everything was absolutely perfect and I cannot give them a high enough rating.

Raising Cain is absolutely AMAZING and they made our day so incredibly special. We hired them for both our ceremony and reception. Mike Marsh is the contact person for the band and he was always very responsive to any email or phone call and made the wedding day seamless. The band is so talented and did a great job of reading the crowd to keep people dancing all night long! They even came out on the dance floor and danced and sang with us. I had so many people tell me how amazing they thought the band was! Absolutely the BEST decision I made for my wedding. If you're looking for an amazing wedding band that can play a variety of music to keep everyone dancing all night long, then look no further - Raising Cain is the best!

We could not have been happier! Raising Cane played at our son's wedding 7-29-16 at 10 mile high station in Breckenridge Colorado. The dance floor was full all night and everyone's comments were best wedding ever! Price was a little higher than quoted by a couple of other bands but worth it! Would definitely recommend!
Mike was very helpful with the planning.

We truly loved Raising Cain. We only had the opportunity to listen to them online before hiring them, but as soon as I spoke to their band manager I knew they were as good as they seemed online.

They were absolutely great to work with. Every question I had during planning, Mike would get on the phone with me and gladly talk with me about ideas for as long as possible. He also never hesitated to tell me when a certain song I liked wouldn't sound the same on the piano we were having for our ceremony, and things like that. Although he always told me his thoughts honestly, he was always willing to explore where I was coming from.

On the big day the band couldn't have been better. They put on an amazing performance, sounded so good in our venue, and were super enthusiastic. A lot of people in party don't like to dance, but they continued to play just as enthusiastically when there was 2 people on the floor as when the floor was full.

Thank you so much Raising Cain!

If you are look for a wedding band, I'm just going tell you to STOP and just HIRE Raising Cane! I felt as if I was looking for the impossible when searching for a band, and Raising Cane was perfect for not only my reception, but ceremony as well.

Before the wedding, Mike and I chatted almost monthly to help iron out every little detail. From beautiful classical string music, to rock and roll, to country, they cover it ALL. Aside from the music, it was so reliving to know that they took care of the toasts, first dance, and directing our crowd as to what was happening during each hour of the evening.

Future brides, I'm telling ya, just save yourself the headache of searching through multiple websites-- they are THE BEST!

Our venue recommended Raising Cain, and I'm glad we listened to them! I love to dance, and they had everyone dancing all night! Tons of guests commented on how great the band was. They played music that appealed to all age ranges so that everyone was up. They have an incredibly long song list, but also learned a new song for our first dance. They really made our wedding fun and ensured that it was a party!

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Raising Cain at our Devil's Thumb Ranch wedding this August. Mike was wonderful to work with and very thorough during the planning process, making sure everything from song selection to phonetic name pronunciation for announcements was covered and planned for. We used them for both our ceremony music and reception and were thrilled with both performances. Thanks to Raising Cain, our reception was incredibly energetic and our guests (of all ages) danced the whole night. More importantly, they were incredibly flexible on-site when we ran behind on the reception and asked them to play straight through (3 full hours)! Since then, we have heard from many guests who said it was one of the best bands they had ever seen. From a value perspective, Raising Cain was the most reasonably priced vendor we interviewed in Denver (by far) and even learned two new specific songs for us at a very minimal charge. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in Colorado!
