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

This band played for my daughters reception. The have such a wide variety of songs that everyone was pleased. And every song was done very well. The night flew by and the dancing was great.
They were willing to travel way out to eastern Colorado and were pleasant and very professional!
Our little town will talk about the fun dance for a long time.

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!
