My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with the performance that Republic of Music gave at our wedding! We had the reception on a Yacht that cruised around San Diego. We were concerned with the logistics involved with a live band playing on different decks at different points of the evening, but RoM went out of their way to coordinate everything in advance to deliver flawless performances the entire time!
Also - the flexibility of their music styling was wonderful. My wife and I were very particular about what we wanted played and worked very closely with the band leader (Tiana) on the setlist. While they can perform music from all different eras, we mainly wanted dance music from the last few years. RoM was able to perform live and professional renditions of VERY current hits like "I Gotta Feeling", "Only Girl In The World", "Poker Face", "Rolling In The Deep" and many more. Our guests were blown away with how current and fresh RoM keeps themselves!
Stop shopping around! Go to one of Republic of Music’s showcases, see how great they are for yourselves, and book them for your wedding today!

We had an 8-piece band for our reception (3 vocalists, keyboard, drums, bass, guitar, and saxophone), and they played the whole range of music from ballads to country to pop dance FLAWLESSLY.
But, the performance only was the icing on the cake. Well before the date, Tiana responded IMMEDIATELY with poise and helpfulness to a multitude of requests--from a special reception entrance song to a incorporating a special family sing-a-long (yes--it was a unique request) in the reception... and lots of other small details that made the wedding celebration uniquely ours. She and the other vocalists did a costume change that made things extra special, and the country set just blew us all away.
My LARGE extended family commented on how GREAT the band was--how well they timed stuff/ how they got people dancing/ how flawless and professional the sound was (none of the out of key or slightly off rhythm or weirdness I've heard with other places). And everyone danced--all three generations of us, including my husband's fairly reserved parents, an accomplishment. More than one person said that the wedding celebration was one of the best they had ever gone to.
On top of this, the price was perfect for our budget and a bargain for an element of the celebration that, in my opinion, with the food and open bar, makes or breaks the party. Thank you for making our night memorable and for making us leave the celebration worry free and happy that everyone had as good a time as we did.

This band is beyond fantastic. They blew the roof off at our wedding; I have never seen so much energy in one room at a time, people were on the dance floor non-stop, which is exactly what we wanted! The vocalists were all stellar, and were individually fantastic, but together there was just amazing charisma. They had costume changes too, that really gave an extra something special to the evening.
My husband and I planned very closely with the band leader-we discussed which genre of songs to be played at which times throughout the evening, which is pretty normal, but even our wedding planner was impressed with how specific they were about timing details between meals.
At the last minute, literally a week before the wedding, we decided to have an after party. I asked the band if they could also DJ, and without batting an eye lash, they did. They asked for songs that we'd like to play, and had absolutely everything we wanted. I'm thrilled that I got them for the extra time. Everybody commented about the band, and rightfully so! Yay Republic of Music!

It is easy to see (and hear) why Republic of Music is the very best. We had our wedding at The Hotel Del Coronado on June 11, 2011 and started searching for music options 3-4 months before. We met with several bands but RoM was the clear choice to go. From the very start, Tiana showed professionalism, understanding and interest in our wedding. We attended one of RoM’s showcases and booked them the next day. Tiana was very responsive in working with us to plan our reception. Which brings us to our wedding day. Everyone was blown away by their talent. Their singing lineup has got to be the BEST out there (no joke, some of their renditions are better than the originals). The whole band brings energy and sounds amazing live. RoM did a good job of playing a mix of music and making sure to play some songs we requested. I thought this was a cliche, but guests really were coming up to us and telling us how fantastic the band sounded. RoM was a crucial part in making our wedding a success. We would highly recommend Republic of Music.

Republic of Music played at my wedding reception and they were amazing!!! Our guests have not stopped raving about how great the band was. They had my guests on the dance floor all night and played a great mix of music to keep everyone happy. They are very talented and created such a great atmosphere for our wedding. They were also willing to accommodate all of our special song requests. Tiana was wonderful to work with - she is responsive and helpful and truly loves what she does.
(Suzanne & Ben Wedding 4/30/2011)
Words cannot express what an amazing job Republic of Music did at our wedding. I cannot think of ever experiencing an evening more perfect, and your band was a main piece of the puzzle. From your seamless breaks, to your overwhelming professionalism in the face of an ever-evolving evening of music, Christina and I could not have envisioned entertainment that was more perfect. Thank you for an absolutely unforgettable night!
(Bob & Christina Wedding 3/01/2011)
The band was just amazing.. they kept the whole crowd dancing on their feet until the reception ended.. They were flexible to adjust the type of music depending on the response. It was a good mix of current hits and the not-so contemporary ones and everyone was able to relate to their music. Highly recommended!
(Jed & Dakotah Wedding 10/30/2010)
RoM did an amazing job at our wedding! They kept everyone of all ages dancing all night and played all of the songs we wanted. They were extremely professional and were always quick to answer any questions. My husband ended up performing a surprise song with Eric and it was perfect. Choosing RoM was one of our absolute best wedding decisions!
(Brian & Tabitha Wedding 10/16/2010)
We were married October 9th, 2010 and hired Republic of Music for our wedding band. They were off the hook amazing! Extremely easy to work with. Tiana Hartsten, the owner is great to work with, makes everything so simple for you and caters to your every need. They really worked with our budget and accommodated all the songs we wanted to hear. Not only were they the songs we wanted to hear, but we felt like we were at a concert. Everyone danced all night, it was the best night of our lives and Republic of Music made it even more special then we could ever imagine. Every single member of the band is extremely talented and they are worth every single penny. I am still getting phone calls telling me how amazing our band was. Thank you for making our wedding so special!!
(Daniel & Leylah Wedding 10/09/2010)
Republic of Music was spectacular!! Tiana and the rest of the band members were so professional and easy to work with. They made our reception incredible and many of our guests came up to us and said that they were the BEST wedding band they have EVER seen. I cannot say enough positive things about RoM and I would recommend them to anyone who is considering a band for their wedding day!!
(Ariel & Gabe Wedding 10/02/2010)
We booked Republic of Music for our wedding and they were amazing! I seriously can't say enough about how great the band is. Eric learned our first dance song and it sounded wonderful. The band had people dancing all night long. People didn't sit down! Our reception was on the hot side because the AC wasn't working that great and people didn't care, they just kept on dancing. The members can sing everything from disco to country with such ease. They are worth every penny and made our wedding memorable and fun! Definitely book them.
(June & Chad Wedding 7/10/2010)
Republic of Music, Tiana and the members of the band are amazing! We had the BEST time at our wedding and the music made the party! RoM was recommended to me by a friend who attended a wedding where they performed. She said they were terrific and urged me to look into booking them for our wedding. I have to say I was blown away. They exceeded all expectations. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night and asking for more at the end. These guys will give you an amazing experience!
(Stephanie & Charles Wedding 7/04/2010)
I'm the bride:
Our caterer and coordinator recommended Republic of Music to us, and we could not have been happier - they MADE our wedding for us, and I'm not exaggerating.
We had 200 people in a tent at a private estate in Rancho Santa Fe. The band's crew came to set up very early, they provided cocktail music and the party band - 12 pieces. Tiana from the company coordinates all the bands personally - you can email her or call her at any hour and she is always attentive, professional, and knows what she's doing. The band was incredible - each musician an artist, the singers were GREAT, and I swear, I'd never have thought that a wedding band could go from Nat King Cole, to the Stones, to U2, to Lady Gaga in one set, but they did and everything was amazing. We had the time of our lives because of this band. They're wonderful - hire them - they are worth every penny. There are only two things you need for a great wedding, alcohol, and a killer band - these guys will get you 50% of the way there.
(Brandy & Zach Wedding 6/12/2010)
Republic of Music was the absolutely perfect band for my wedding! The only direction I provided them was that I wanted my guests on the dance floor all night long! Republic of Music did just that! They played music for everybody, and for every age group. The compliments I received from my guests on the band choice ranged from everything to: "They played every song so well, it sounded like the CD!" and "There were times where I would go to sit down, and I'd get right back up again". I would recommend Republic of Music to any bride for a wedding celebration!
