We booked the band Hipshack for our wedding and we loved them! The people at Sam Hill as well as Jeremy (the band member I had correspondence with) were all a pleasure to work with. They made the process very easy and enjoyable. They played a great variety of music and they learned our first dance song for us - it (as well as everything else they played) was great. They really know how to read the room and play songs that will get people dancing. Everybody at our wedding loved them!

The one thing that I will say is: book early! - Our experience was that a lot of the bands book up really quickly

My wife and I used Sam Hill Entertainment for our wedding band. They hooked us up with Six Stylez out of Greensboro, NC and we couldn't have been happier. The band was great and they kept the party bumping the whole time. I would highly recommend using Sam Hill as well as the band Six Stylez. Both were the perfect choice for us.

We hired Soul Expressions as our wedding band and I think it was the best decision we made throughout the whole process! I cannot say enough about how amazing they were. We had a 200 person wedding and once we finished dinner, not a single person was in their chair. There actually wasn't enough room for everyone on the dance floor. Their energy was amazing and they did a great job reading the crowd to keep the party going. Selecting the band was one of the biggest decisions for us because the most important thing for us was for everyone to have a great time. It took a lot of looking into other bands to make the decision - and to be perfectly honest I was really skeptical because a lot of bands the same size charge an outrageous amount more than Soul Expressions so I was nervous that it was because they weren't as good but that is definitely not the case! My wedding guests were getting their business card at the end of the night and I'm pretty sure a few friends/children of our wedding guests have already hired them. We have had so many people, young and old, tell us our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever been to and we have Soul Expressions to thank for that!

Our band was the best part of our wedding!!! We booked Artificial Flavor through Sam Hill Entertainment/DePalma Productions and it was worth every cent. The entire night we did not get off the dance floor. At the end of the night, I was exhausted from how much fun I had. Luckily we had a huge dance floor because we were not the only ones who danced all night long- the entire floor was packed the entire time! Every single guest raved about our band and how great they were. Truly, EVERY SONG was incredible. The singers came out on the dance floor and we got to dance, and even SING, with them! I wish I could do my wedding day all over again because of how much fun I had due to the band. THANK YOU Artificial Flavor- I would highly recommend them to anyone and am hoping that we can see them at another wedding!

Sam Hill Entertainment is the best resource for finding the perfect wedding band for you. They will work with you on budget and send you band options that meet your style until you have found your wedding band. Our band was The Significant Others and they were, hands down, show stoppers! We received so many compliments from our guests about how good they were and how much fun everyone had. And of course, the groom and I loved them!!

Pre-wedding, they were easy to work with and were very timely with their responses to our questions. They were very professional and very accommodating.

During the reception, the band found us to touch base on the timeline. We were off timeline schedule by about 15-20 minutes, but the guys were completely cool about it and made everything work. They announced the toasts and first dances and kept everything moving along.

I think one of the best parts of the reception and the band is that at the end of the night, they KILLED the last song (Journey - Don't Stop Believing) and left EVERYONE there wanting more! I think even some of our guests started chanting "encore"!

We would most definitely recommend The Significant Others and have been spreading the word to all our friends and family who have been asking "How did you find them?" Sam Hill Entertainment is the way to go for you entertainment needs at any event. I can't wait to use them again in the future!

I cannot say enough great things about our band, MO SOL and Sam Hill Entertainment!! We had a few bridal party members that had been to a wedding where they played and they came highly recommended! From the beginning our agent, Andy Jaspen, was on top of it. Responding to emails immediately, regardless of the day or time--including Friday or Saturday nights, and made it so easy to set everything up.
A few weeks before the wedding Ms Monique sent us a questionnaire to find out what songs we were using for the first dance, father-daughter and mother-son dances, if there were any requested/special songs and to get the final timeline of our event. Breaks were taken at the perfect times, during cake cutting, garter/bouquet tosses, and they sang all of those special first dance songs live (John Legend to Rascal Flatts--and they nailed them)! The band members were interactive with the crowd just the right amount, and kept the hits coming one after another. We dreamed of having a wedding reception that was a big party, and MO SOL delivered. Everyone was dancing, not only our friends, but our parent's, their friends and coworkers, and even the grandparents were out on the dance floor breaking it down.

They were a little pricey-but worth every penny and more. Seriously, if you are interested in having the best reception ever, where everyone has a wonderful time--this is the band for you. Absolutely amazing.

We had Ten Spot through Sam Hill with two additional horns and they were amazing! High tempo, great energy, and allowed our guests to sing with them on stage. My husband and I highly recommend them for any wedding or live band occasion. The guys were very flexible as well, since our venue didn't provide them a schedule in advance. Professionals and played GREAT music all night!

I worked with Sam Hill Entertainment to book my wedding band for my wedding at The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA in June 2014. Andy Jaspen (my contact at Sam Hill) helped me choose a band that he promised would keep everyone on the dance floor - and he delivered 110%! My band, Horizon, was phenomenal! They were incredibly easy to work with and they rocked the house! Not only did they keep our friends dancing all night long - but my parents friends as well. They were truly amazing and I can't say enough about how wonderful Andy and the rest of the staff at Sam Hill were to work with!

We had a great experience with Sam Hill Entertainment, they provided us great insight to help us pick our wedding band, Walrus. From the beginning, they listened to our likes and dislikes and quickly sent us 6-8 bands that would fit our budget and music preferences. We had never heard our wedding band live when we booked them, so was slightly nervous, but as soon as they started playing, we knew we had made the right choice. Even cooler that we got to request that they learn a special song that was important to us, the whole night was perfect. Thanks Sam Hill & Walrus!

I cannot sing enough praise for Sam Hill Entertainment. We used them to book our band, 10 Spot, who were phenomenal. This was probably the easiest piece of wedding planning to coordinate due to the helpfulness, flexibility, and professionalism of Sam Hill/10 Spot. Our emails were quickly responded to and they accommodated many of our requests. The band was incredible! I never got off the dance floor and our guests had a wonderful time. They performed songs for all ages and everyone commented on how great they sounded. They even surprised my husband and me and learned our first dance song (something we didn't expect them to do). A pleasure to work with and I will highly recommend Sam Hill/10 Spot to any bride!

Sam Hill Entertainment was wonderful to work with when selecting the band for our wedding. They provided a number of options based on the music we were looking for and the budget we were working with. In the end we selected Soul Expressions and have only great things to say about the band. Soul Expressions was fantastic and loved by guests of all ages. Many of our friends have since sent us notes raving about how the band would hop on the dance floor while playing their instrument or singing making it a truly interactive event. Wilbert of Soul Expressions was also a pleasure to work with as he was very responsive to all my e-mails and did an excellent job as MC. Of all the vendors in which I worked with for my wedding Sam Hill and Soul Expressions take the number one seed. I certainly would recommend Soul Expressions and Sam Hill Entertainment when searching for a band for any event!

We booked Blue Tips Rhythm Review through Sam Hill and it was a great experience on all fronts.

First of all, the band: What can I say, these guys were named best wedding band by Washington City Paper in 2013 for a reason. Blue Tips Rhythm Revue was everything we thought they would be and more. My husband and I are big live music fans and had high expectations and the band totally blew us away. They MADE our wedding reception.

They learned and played our first dance song with ease and added their own flavor to that and every song they played. The band had a well crafted setlist and knew when to keep the music more low-key (while everyone was finishing their entrees) and when to crank up the energy to really get the party going. We received numerous compliments throughout the night from all of our guests. People were either dancing or watching them in awe - having THE BEST TIME EVER. We held our wedding reception at a live music venue and even the staff were blown away by how good the band was.

Sam Hill was a pleasure to work with. I'd definitely recommend booking through them, even if you don't book our band (which you should). They, and the band, were friendly, professional and I know if I ever have any type of event that requires music, I know who to reach out to.

We worked with Andy to find a band that met what we were looking for and was within out budget. We booked the Jangling Reinharts based on Andy's rave reviews. Sam Hill bands made the booking process easy and convenient. The band was also easy to work with and very accommodating of our requests. Our perspective was that honey play weddings all huge time, so ewe gave them a couple of our. Favorites and left the rest up to them. They are a wonderful generationally friendly band that has an impressive repertoire. Everyone raved about how wonderful the music was. My parents friends were the first ones out on the dance floor. Their dinner set was really appropriate, then they opened up the dance floor. Their last set got everyone up onto their feet. The guys were very professional. I would hire the again, without hesitation, for any big event and recommend them to anyone planning a wedding!

We selected Nocturne band based out of New York and went with the 11 piece version with the horns. We had searched in the DC area and just couldn't find a band that compared to Nocturne. We actually went to see the band at a holiday party in DC so we could see how their performance was in person. They are amazing! They sound as good in person, if not better than their demos. They bring such great energy and truly know how to keep a party going all night long. That is just what they did. The dance floor was packed until the very last song! Our guests raved and raved about them. The band lead, Matt, is a doll and was so responsive along the way, answering every question we had. They also worked with us to sing our first dance song and coordinate timing with our choreographed first dance. They are awesome and I wouldn't think twice about booking them again for an event.

We hired The Bellevue Rhythmaires for our wedding ceremony. These guys were great! They were super responsive, professional, organized, and were even willing to learn new stuff at the last minute. They even walked with us (and played music) as we went parade style from the ceremony to the reception - in the pouring rain! We received many compliments about the music. Would definitely recommend them!

We used Sam Hill Entertainment to find our wedding band, The Whiskey Rebellion. They were absolutely fantastic and not only provided music for the reception, but also for the ceremony and cocktail hour. We loved their bluegrass/folk style and during the reception, they had everyone on the dance floor with their covers of oldies and current music, but with their own flair! The bandleader, Ryan, was an absolute joy to work with and incorporated our unusual requests of songs for the ceremony, without any hesitation. The band was so kind to learn two new songs for our wedding, one for the ceremony and one for the first dance. Their style is one of our favorite kinds of music, but we were happy to see that our guests enjoyed them so much too! The band is great because you can either dance along or sit back and enjoy listening to what they're playing, without having to shout to hear the person next to you. Definitely a wonderful band for the bride and groom who don't want a DJ or a big band, but want to stick to their rock/folk/bluegrass musical roots! Would happily go to one of their concerts to hear them play again!

Sam Hill Entertainment is a very professional and prompt service. We found their website user friendly as well while researching band choices. We booked Hipshack for our wedding through Sam HIll Entertainment and couldn't have been more pleased! Jeremy, from Hipshack was a pleasure to work with before the wedding accommodating our special song requests! In addition, we decided to add a horn player to the group and it was a great choice! They had everyone out of their seats and out on the dance floor! Many guests raved about the band and how much fun they had with Hipshack! I would definitely recommend Hipshack to anyone planning a wedding or other special event! Thank you Sam Hill Entertainment for helping us find an amazing band and making it a pleasant experience!

Sam Hill was amazing and so easy to work with! They recommended a few different bands for our wedding and we actually ended up booking two! Gallatin Canyon is an amazing blue grass band that we had play our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. We received so many compliments on these guys and they were so wonderful with every little request. They selected some great songs and were extremely talented musicians.

We had the Jangling Reinharts take over after dinner and opened up the dance floor. I cannot say enough good things about them! They were so much fun and kept the dance floor bumping all night long. My whole party, young and old, were having a ball for the whole night. They learned my husband and I's song for the wedding as well and did a perfect version of it that made it feel so personal and unique. We both even got up on stage and sang with them for portions of songs. They definitely knew how to work the crowd and I had numerous people tell me it was the best wedding band they had ever seen!

We are planning on tracking both of these bands down when they are playing a bar or other public venue to see them perform again! I've already passed the contact info for both along to guests from the wedding that want to book them for their own events. Highly recommend Sam Hill, Gallatin Canyon and the Jangling Reinharts! All parties involved did a phenomenal job!

I worked with Andy @ Sam Hill Entertainment to book our wedding band for our 9/14/13 wedding in Pawleys Island, SC. With his help, we booked Six Stylez. We were planning our wedding from New England, so we obviously could not see Six Stylez live prior to our wedding date, which was a little nerve-wracking. Andy assured us that they would be incredible and noted that they had sample songs on the Sam Hill website. We also found some videos of performances online which helped make our decision. In the weeks leading up to our wedding date, the band reached out to us and was professional in every correspondence. I was blown away with how awesome the band was on our wedding day. Our family and friends were on the dance floor all night, and in the days following our wedding, everyone raved about how incredible the band was. I highly recommend Six Stylez as a wedding band and Andy @ Sam Hill Entertainment was also great to work with!

I immediately got a response from Andrew with a list of bands in our price range. After listening to the sample songs of the Adrian Duke Project we knew right away that's who we wanted. They exceeded our expectations and people are still talking about how much they loved our band. Adrian is so talented and can do almost anything! You won't regret booking them!

Everyone that came to our wedding is still talking about how awesome they were. They really take the time to interact and get to know the crowd. They made everyone feel comfortable and want to get on the dance floor. I was really nervous when looking for a band because they can make or break the night. The Dickens were the best choice we could have made. I'm just sad that we can't hear them play all the time.

I used this company to find my band, The Venture Rays. I initially worked with Sam Hill Entertainment to find the band, which they were very helpful and great with communication. Once we found the band, and knew we wanted to use them, then all communication was turned over to me and the band. Everything worked out great, and I was able to coordinate everything with the band members. I didn't feel like I was booking through some large entertainment company. I knew exactly what I was getting on my wedding day. Sam Hill Entertainment and The Venture Rays were excellent!

Sam Hill Entertainment was recommended to me by a colleague who has a lot of experience with planning events. Working with Mike at Sam Hill bands was a great experience! He helped me in selecting the band (Beleza- which was AMAZING as a four-piece band), gave me their schedule so I could watch a performance beforehand, and was in consistent communication with me. The pricing was also very reasonable, compared to a lot of other bands I had inquired about (and other booking agencies) in the DC area. I highly recommend them and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them for future events!

We chose Another Level to play at our wedding reception. They were awesome! They learned a song for our first dance. The groom and I never had a doubt that they would be they are very experienced and know how to keep the crowd going. We gave them some songs we didn't want them to play, but basically just trusted Kevin and the rest of the band to do what they do best. We weren't disappointed. At the end of the reception, they had the groom and I up on the stage area doing a rendition of Proud Mary. We had a blast and the pictures are awesome. Every single person was on their feet dancing. Our guests absolutely loved it and thought it was planned but it wasn't. My sister now wants them to play at her wedding!

We could not have been more happy with DC Fusion. We've attended many weddings through the years and they were by far the most fun. The quote from one of Natalie's friends "Best Party Ever", pretty much sums it up.

DC Fusion was on-time, professional and maximized space in a relatively small reception hall with a capacity of 200 (we had 225 guests). We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

We had the Jangling Reinharts perform at our wedding reception. My mom didnt want a band but once she heard them she was in LOVE! They were perfect! They learned our first dance for us and it was great. We didnt send them a huge "do and dont" play list. I sent a couple songs and they understood our style. They impressed everyone at the wedding from kids to grandparents! LOVE THEM!

We used Sam Hill to hire The Dickens. Sam Hill was wonderful and easy to contact. They stayed in touch with us and made the process so easy.\r\n\r\nThe Dickens were UNBELIEVABLE. They were flexible, kept the crowd happy, and were so accomodating. They made our day so wonderful and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a variety of music and great dance band!!!

We love Walrus!!! They are the best cover band in the Triad area. The musicians are some of the best musicians around and the lead singer, Ray, has a great voice and is very entertaining. They have a very extensive song list to choose from with a lot of non-traditional wedding music, something for everyone!

The dance floor was full the entire time at our reception and we received a lot of compliments afterward about how much fun the music was.

As I was working with Sam Hill Entertainment for a reception band I had inquired if there were any suggestions for ceremony music. With Sam Hill Entertainment’s website they have sound clips for their artists which make it very user friendly to listen and get an idea for the style of sound you are looking for. As each artist has multiple songs in the sound clip you get a good feel for the various songs they perform. When Anthem was suggested for ceremony music I instantly loved their sound clip. This was perfect and exactly what I had in mind. With the string ensemble I had had the flexibility of adding or leasing the number of people to fit the size venue. The quartet played beautiful ceremony music. While my husband and I were off taking photos we didn’t get to attend our cocktail hour but the funny thing was out of the entire evening, we were excited to know if our guests enjoyed them at the cocktail hour as they have a twist on modern songs played in a string format. Take a listen on line; there sound is the coolest thing I have heard in a while.

The jangling reinharts played at our wedding, and they were AMAZING. We love rock/alternative music (ie not R&B), and they were perfect. So many of our guests commented that they were the best wedding band ever, and I couldn't agree more. The entire party, young and old, were on the dance floor the entire night. We didn't request any songs and left it up to the band, and the song list was incredible. They played a ton of sing-along songs that had everyone sing at the top of their lungs. They MADE the party, and I honestly couldnt have asked for a better and more fun wedding due to the reinharts. I couldn't more highly recommend this band.

I also want to note that our wedding was a saturday night at hotel monaco in DC. I was worried they would be more of a garden wedding type band/country, but not at all. They rocked the house.

We used the Six Stylez band for our wedding, and the people at Sam Hill Entertainment were so helpful. If you want to book this band, you have to go through them, but they were very responsive and nice. I enjoyed working with them, and the band was so great. They are a group of good looking, young guys and they play so many fun songs (lots of 80s, 90s, and today). Everyone of all ages was out on the dance floor. I highly recommend checking out their website. They have some samples, and you will love them. People still tell me how great they were.

A HUGE thank you to Andy from Sam Hill Entertainment for making our wedding so amazing!

I had reached out to Andy in the very beginning stages of my planning process, when I really had no clue what I wanted. He emailed back and forth, spoke to us on the phone, and was just an enormous help in finding us the music we wanted.

We ended up going with Peter Richardson for classical guitar music during the ceremony and cocktail hour, and the Dickens Band for our reception. I HIGHLY recommend both for any events. Peter was so professional and talented, and the Dickens were an absolute blast and kept the dance floor packed the entire night.

Thank you, Andy, for all of your suggestions and help during our long planning process. You were an absolute joy to work with and I will be recommending Sam Hill to everyone in the future!:)

Sam Hill Entertainment helped us find our wedding band, DC Fusion. The selection process, thanks to the easy-to-navigate website and guidance from Andy at Sam Hill, made it easy and fun to find the perfect party band -- which is exactly how DC Fusion performed. The band was there in plenty of time to set up, played dinner appropriate music at a conversational level at the right times, and then really stepped up the party once the dancing got going. They played a perfect mix of songs to make the older folks happy and then picked it up with more recent hits for the young folks. They even humored my family by playing with them along to a song they had created about me and my husband. We received a ton of compliments on the band throughout the night and since the wedding. DC Fusion exceeded our expectations and we could not have been happier!

After going to listen to 10 Spot, we were hooked! These guys MADE our reception! The dance floor was full the entire reception and I had a hard time leaving to go mingle with guests. I looked around at one point and saw my parents friends as well as our friends all dancing at the same time. Everyone loved the music!! I highly recommend!!! Thanks guys!

Sam Hill Entertainment linked us to DC Fusion, an incredible band that absolutely MADE our wedding. Their energy, vibe, harmonies, and funk got everyone out on the dance floor from the FIRST minute and no one stopped dancing all night long. They were a HUGE hit and everyone was raving. We were thrilled and lucky to have them, and their price is a BARGAIN for the quality, tone, and professionalism you'd crave. The saxophonist came out on the dance floor to wow the crowd, the duo thrilled, and they were just so much fun. I highly recommend DC Fusion and the service that Sam Hill provided. Attentive, responsive, and customer oriented right from the get go. You CANNOT go wrong!

DC Fusion is a great band and we would highly recommend them. They were very easy to work with, more than happy to learn a song or two, and readily agreed to play a song so that the bride could surprise and serenade her new husband. Our guests danced all night long and everyone had a great time. The pictures of the evening captured the dance floor packed and smiles on everyone's faces. Since that night, we have had many compliments about the band from our guests.

I highly recommend Sam Hill Entertainment for finding a band or DJ for your wedding! The site itself is easy to use based on your preferences. We found DC Fusion, a band for our wedding in Baltimore. They were OUTSTANDING!!! They played a variety of music that kept our guests on the dance floor all night long! After the last song, our guests were screaming for them to play another song!! Both lead singers got off the stage and into the crowd. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful they were. In fact, many of them have already requested information from us to pass along to their friends/family for future events. Rick, the sound engineer was easy to work with the entire night and he made sure everything went smoothly. Chris Grasso, the manager from the band, was the contact person we were able to keep in touch with during the planning process. He was always available and he responded to emails within minutes. He answered any questions we had regarding the band and music. I highly recommend using Sam Hill Entertainment to find a band/DJ for your wedding! I especially recommend using DC Fusion as a potential band...they were honestly fantastic!!

Mike and Justine helped us find just the right band that fit our budget, and it was probably the best decision we made for the wedding reception. They made everything simple and easy, answered all of our questions quickly, and helped us get together all the information for our band.

The band - The Golddiggers - was fantastic. They sounded great, kept everyone on the dance floor, and did a good job of being MC for the night. We could not have asked for a better experience.

The Jangling Reinharts made our wedding a party! We were looking for a slightly unique band that played the classic and modern rock music that we listen to. The JR were perfect for us. Not only did their song list include almost all of our favorite new and old songs but they were flexible enough to learn a few other songs that we wanted them to play. They also rocked out! They were sooo fun and they looked like they were having a blast! We felt at times like we were at a rock concert! Many of our guests commented that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard!

Our band was the Hometown Sweethearts, and they were the BEST BAND EVER. We couldn't afford a giant band like everyone expects, but this three piece knows how to rock out and get people on the dance floor! Their set list was great, everyone was raving about them all night and asking for their contact info. We already want to have another event just for an excuse to book them! By far the best vendor of the night, we will be recommending them to everyone we know in the northeast!
As for Sam Hill Entertainment, their booking company, they were great to work with too. Prompt to questions, available for calls, and our transactions went through very smoothly. Highly recommended!

First of all, Andy at Sam Hill Entertainment is extremely helpful - he is VERY responsive on email and by phone. We spent forever trying to pick a band, and other talent agencies would tell us "all our bands are great," but when we found Andy, he was able to really help us narrow down a band that fit our needs.

We chose the band 10 Spot and it was great! We were very happy with them. The circumstances were a little challenging at our wedding venue in that the reception was on the second floor of the building and there was no elevator. So the band had to carry their equipment up. And then they had to set up and sound check during the cocktail hour after the wedding, since the wedding itself was in the same room as the reception. As far as I know, the band did all this without complaint.

To me, the band sounded a little off during the first few songs, though I suspect this was in large part our fault since they couldn't really do a proper sound check due to the cocktail reception going on literally in the next room over. But they quickly corrected and sounded very good.

We thought they did a great job of playing quietly during the meal itself...it was great to have the music, but we could still have conversation. And in the post-meal dance set, 10 Spot was terrific. They pretty much had people on the dance floor the whole time. They sounded awesome, played great songs with a lot of enthusiasm...they made it hard to leave the dance floor!! A number of people told me during and afterward that it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard.

So all in all, we were extremely happy with 10 Spot and Sam Hill Entertainment and would strongly recommend them to others.

I LOVED finding and booking my AMAZING band (Infinity Show Band) with Sam Hill Entertainment. Hank (me regionally assigned advisor) helped me narrow down from all the awesome options and figure out the perfect band for my wedding (seriously, ask all 350+ of my guests and they will completely agree!). There wasn't a dull moment on the dance floor! The communication between Sam Hill Entertainment, my band, and me was seamless and the band was flexible to the details of our wants/needs. I definitely recommend any bride to find their band through this company - it was almost too easy!

There wasn't a dull moment on the dance floor! The communication between Sam Hill Entertainment, my band, and me was seamless and the band was flexible to the details of our wants/needs. I definitely recommend any bride to find their band through this company - it was almost too easy! Read less

We used Sam Hill Entertainment to find the perfect band for our wedding and they did! Andy helped us and he was great - very patient with our indecisiveness. Once we decided on exactly what type of music we wanted, he knew the perfect band in our price range. Heartbeat of Soul was amazing - everyday we have someone tell us how much fun our wedding was and all because of our great band! We would definitely recommend using Sam Hill Entertainment's expertise when searching for a band.

We hired BS&M to play at our June 2010 wedding in Washington, DC and they were phenomenal. We picked them just based on a recommendation from Andy at Sam Hill Entertainment - we said we wanted great dance music that would appeal to both our parent's friends and our friends - a mix of oldies, motown, and modern. And BS&M came through in every way!

Quality of Service: Excellent! They played oldies/motown in the beginning and everyone was dancing. Then they got a bit more modern and EVERYONE was dancing - our friends and family loved them. They nailed the hora too! By the end of the night, our guests literally were shouting one more song. They came out and did Billie Jean and it was such a hit. We took a chance picking a band we'd never seen before and I couldn't be more relieved and thrilled with how they played.

Responsiveness: Dave Barton is great to work with. We spoke with him on the phone and told him the style we liked, told him songs we didn't want to play, went over first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. and he was so agreeable. I emailed him a week before the wedding requesting a song that wasn't on their list, asking about volume, etc and he wrote back: "We will get ALL this done for you - volume, song list, Alicia Keys" He put my mind at ease and he delivered!

Such high quality - I would dance to them all night! I would recommend them to anyone.

This band is AMAZING. They knew exactly how to get everyone dancing and keep them dancing for the rest of the night. They were so much fun, interacted with us, and even let me sing with them! I don't think that was such a treat for our guests, but I had a GREAT time. They are worth every penny, and I can't wait to go to another event where they are performing.

We had The Jangling Reinharts play our reception. I LOVE this band. They played a great mix of old and new rock, learned a REM song for our first dance, and kept our friends & older family members alike on the dance floor all night. They also did a great job of keeping things flowing in general--they played quiet but still interesting songs during dinner (loud music during the meal is a pet peeve of my parents) and kicked up the energy after dinner. They clearly know what they're doing, and made sure they had our timeline right, names pronounced right, etc etc (even the details that we didn't think of). These guys are a ton of fun.

We also booked Morewenna Lasko & Jay Pun to play our ceremony through Sam Hill. He plays guitar and she plays violin. They're local musicians who we know & have seen play around town quite a few times, and they were fantastic at the wedding. They were willing to learn a song or two for us, and had plenty of suggestions for the parts of the ceremony where we were at a loss for what music to play. We also asked them to play some of their originals while people were being seated. They braved the cold (in March) & played beautifully.

I'd absolutely recommend both bands to anyone.

Disclaimer: I do have personal ties to Sam Hill, but I think enough other reviews back up what I've said...

We hired The Rhythm Kings of Virginia Beach, VA, through Sam Hill Entertainment for our wedding. They were WONDERFUL! We wanted a band that would keep the dance floor moving all night while providing music that would appeal to both younger and older guests. The band was professional, prepared, and so fun we decided to extend the reception half an hour. Their manager at Sam Hill, Mike Miglino, was consistently responsive, helpful, and always professional. I highly recommend this company - and this band - to anyone looking for an awesome reception.

We worked with Juleen of Jan Davis Entertainment in DC. Jan Davis helped us book of of Sam Hill's (their sister agency) bands-- the Jangling Reinharts.

As for the band, The Jangling Reinharts... They are the most awesome wedding band ever! We wanted a band that played cool cover songs, classic rock and got the crowd moving and they more than exceeded our expectations. They played everything from The Beatles to Journey to Guns N'Roses. Everyone was up on the dance floor the whole night and I would say the band (along with our excellent venue) was the key to our completely awesome wedding. I can't recommend them enough-- and their prices were much more reasonable than most of the stuffy, "wedding bands" in DC. We haven't stopped getting complements on the band.

It was difficult to find a band living abroad, but Sam Hill was able to provide us with a lot of information such as genre, price range, song lists, cds, and even a few dvds of selected bands performing. Andrew was always quick to respond to my emails and was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. We chose Novelty and were happy with their performance. The band was an important element for us, since we are both serious about music, and we feel that our experience was great.

A 5 star vendor in every sense of the phrase.

We booked the Adrian Duke Projekt through Sam Hill for the wedding. We sprung for the extra 5th piece, so there was a keyboard, drums, sax, guitar, and bass. The band has a New Orleans type sound with a super unique voice in Adrian Duke. They were phenomenal. They play 50s through 80s mostly and they nail every song. The dance floor was packed all night, all special requests were honored, and all pre-requested songs were played. We heard so many compliments about the band from all ages.

We were able to work directly with the band as much as we liked. My husband was on the phone with Adrian or emailing him whenever we had a question. He was very responsive and very polite.

Awesome, awesome vendor and band.

They kept the wedding reception rocking all night but varied the songs so that all age groups were happy. They are worth the price even though it was a stretch for my budget.

Sam Hill Entertainment is music agency providing information on and access to all kinds of bands to fit every budget.

We ended up booking Sound Connection, a 10-piece band that was amazing. Our guests danced the entire night and no one wanted it to end when the band was done.

Music was probably the most important thing to me for the wedding. I researched bands the most. It was challenging finding ones that were available in four months, as well as ones that I liked (fun, professional, engaging and GOOD!) Mike was so thorough and worked with me on everything. He did not give up on me no matter how picky I was. We snuck a preview of the band performing at a wedding and we were blown away. They were our splurge but we booked Sound Nation! I was a little nervous when they sent over the rider because I was envisioning a diva band that would only want white m&ms in their green room or something. Sound Nation was anything but. Completely professional all the way and such a joy to work with. They were very flexible with the space (there were pillars and steps which made the space planning challenging.) They were worth every dollar - very talented group. They read their audience and got the room dancing. Every single person I've spoken to who was at the wedding commented on how great the band was! Every single person. They made our evening a complete blast!

we went through sam hill to find our band, and ended up using the retro kats. they were a great jazz band, where we could choose the size of the band for our wedding. we ended up going with a four piece because of the small venue. we loved the band, and their lead singer gwen, who helped us figure out everything. they went out of their way to hook up sound to our ceremony site, which ended up being a ways away, determined to get us what we wanted for our day. so easy to deal with, great personalities, and the music was perfect. i think going through a booking agent is always more expensive, but we had a hard time finding a jazz band without it, and we loved them. we loved them.

We booked DC Fusion through Sam Hill about 1 yr before the wedding. Sam Hill was easy to work with and when DC Fusion contacted us about 30 days before the wedding they were also easy to work with. We revised our wedding itinerary at least twice, got a little extra time (for extra $) and the band contact was always responsive and easy to work with. They learned 2 songs for us despite the songs not being in their normal style and did a great job with them. We also had a small dance floor and at my request to set up compactly they definitely did, so we had lots of room for dancing. My caterers were terrible but DC Fusion kept the night on schedule for which I am super grateful.

This review is really more about our band (The Dickens) than about Sam Hill (but I will say that Sam Hill was just fine to work with. No complaints.). The Dickens, however, we out of this world AMAZING! They really made our wedding night the fun dance party that we were hoping it would be! The dance floor was packed all night long! These guys don't even pause in between songs, they just mash the song up and blend one right into the next! It's really cool and keeps the momentum on the dance floor going. Wow, they rocked:) I highly recommend them! They only reason I didn't give them a perfect score is because they lost a few points for responsiveness (they were really hard to get ahold of when I had questions pre-wedding). But that said, I would book them again in a heartbeat and you should do the same! Also of note, they really take care of you on the wedding day. They were so nice and attentive to the groom and I! They made the evening run extremely smoothly. Well done guys! I highly recommend them!

He hired Right Foot Red for our wedding day, through Sam Hill Entertainment. Andy at Sam Hill was great to work with, and answered all of our questions. We had seen Right Foot Red perform at another wedding, and knew we wanted them for ours. We were lucky that they were available and within what we thought was a relatively reasonable price range for a live band.

In the weeks leading up to our wedding, the band leader of Right Foot Red got in touch with us to plan out our final details. He helped us with our timeline, father/daughter dance, and answered our final A/V questions. He was very professional and helpful.

My only note would be that my husband and I spent a long time going through RFR's set list, and selecting specific songs that we liked and didn't like. We sent that song list to the band. We're not sure what happened, because they definitely played songs we asked not to be played.

But - at the end of the day, we didn't really care. All of our guests were dancing the entire time, and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I would highly recommend Sam Hill Entertainment and Right Foot Red.

We chose Another Level through Sam Hill Entertainment. Sam Hill helped us choose the perfect band after asking what type of music we wanted to hear. "Another Level" was very reasonably-priced and did an excellent job at the reception. Our guests were dancing the majority of the night and raved about the music afterwards. They were somewhat difficult to stay in contact with which caused some mix-ups at the beginning of the reception, but they definitely made up for it in their performance!

We hired First Generation Band from Atlanta, GA for our wedding. They were absolutely amazing! Every guest loved dancing to the mixture of motown/swing and pop music they played. They were super engaging with the audience, extremely friendly, and kept the energy high. The two downsides were that they were a little difficult to get in touch with prior to the wedding (slow response time via email) and they seemed a bit confused how to transition from the ceremony to the reception even though they were given a detailed schedule of events. They did learn a special song for our first dance though which was awesome and I really appreciated their efforts in that. I would highly recommend First Generation Band to anyone!!!

We had a trio of instrumentalists play for our ceremony and cocktail hour and they moved seamlessly from traditional ceremony music to lively bluegrass for the cocktail hour. Working through Sam Hill was a breeze, they kept sending us bands to look at until we found the right one, and the online catalogs they keep of each band's music is really helpful during the planning phase. Would definitely use Sam Hill, and Jackass Flats, again!

We used Sam Hill to book e3 for our wedding. SamHill was great to work with. The send us a packet with samples from the bands, reviews and videos. I really enjoyed the entire list of sings so that we could compare the genres covered by bands. The only issue we faced was that the band we booked didn't know some of the songs listed on their playlist. If they just make sure that the lists match what songs the band really knows this could save confusion. I had guests requesting Kanye all night because their web site and playlist said they new it. Guests thought that I kept asking not to play it. Ugggghhh just play my Kanye!

We used Sam Hill Entertainment to book our band 'Sound Nation' for our Sept 4th wedding. First, I would have to say that after contacting several other band booking services, Sam Hill was the fastest to respond and had the most options in our price range (FYI: bands are SO expensive, but worth the money!) Sound Nation was a phenomenal band and kept our dance floor packed up until the very last song. They learned our first dance song and sounded awesome! They were on time, dressed professionally and played a great range of songs. Everyone has complimented us on our choice of music. Sam Hill and Sound Nation come highly recommended!

What I liked the most about Sam Hill was the way you could browse through their bands by genre and price range. It made picking a band much simpler. We went with the rock band Vinyl Headlights, and I couldn't imagine having gotten a better band. Everyone loved them, they were very cooperative with meeting all our "wedding" requests like doing the grand entrance, setting up the ceremony songs, which was important as our ceremony music was very non-traditional. I thought the bill paid towards Sam Hill was a little steep, but then again the band made the wedding amazing.

The Jeff Decker Band played our wedding.

I have mixed feelings on the band. I felt that Jeff chose to do some things his way, instead of the way that I had planned. Since we were one of the first weddings our venue had and I was very organized, I carefully planned the floor plan and timeline. I sent those items to Jeff. They set up the band in the wrong place - on an angle probably 5 feet away from the dance floor, so it made for a disjointed band/dance floor experience. The speakers were facing the dance floor on an angle, not directly, so it was hard to hear the music and see the band while dancing.

My bigger problem, however, was with the break music/timing. Jeff said they primarily take breaks during times like dinner to keep the flow of the event going smoothly. I discussed this with him and created a 40 minute playlist of fast pop and rock n roll songs and included that on the timeline as the music to play for the last 40 minutes of the wedding. Instead, the band took a break after our bouquet toss at 9:20 and put my playlist on extremely low volume, so it sounded more like muzak, not dancing music. With the band gone and the muzak on low, people started leaving!

So, by taking a break at that time and turning my playlist on low, two things happened - no one danced to any fast pop music during the whole wedding and people thought the wedding was over 10pm, when we still had another hour. I was extremely disappointed because I was counting on that hour as the fun dancing part of the wedding (a part which multiple family members had complained we would miss out on by hiring a jazz band, but I tried to rectify with the playlist that we spent several hours creating).

I had the feeling that Jeff didn't feel like listening to a "bossy bride" when I had emailed him a few times in the last couple of months with questions.

The Jeff Decker Band played our wedding.

I have mixed feelings on the band. I felt that Jeff chose to do some things his way, instead of the way that I had planned. Since we were one of the first weddings our venue had and I was very organized, I carefully planned the floor plan and timeline. I sent those items to Jeff. They set up the band in the wrong place - on an angle probably 5 feet away from the dance floor, so it made for a disjointed band/dance floor experience. The speakers were facing the dance floor on an angle, not directly, so it was hard to hear the music and see the band while dancing.

My bigger problem, however, was with the break music/timing. Jeff said they primarily take breaks during times like dinner to keep the flow of the event going smoothly. I discussed this with him and created a 40 minute playlist of fast pop and rock n roll songs and included that on the timeline as the music to play for the last 40 minutes of the wedding. Instead, the band took a break after our bouquet toss at 9:20 and put my playlist on extremely low volume, so it sounded more like muzak, not dancing music. With the band gone and the muzak on low, people started leaving!

So, by taking a break at that time and turning my playlist on low, two things happened - no one danced to any fast pop music during the whole wedding and people thought the wedding was over 10pm, when we still had another hour. I was extremely disappointed because I was counting on that hour as the fun dancing part of the wedding (a part which multiple family members had complained we would miss out on by hiring a jazz band, but I tried to rectify with the playlist that we spent several hours creating).

I had the feeling that Jeff didn't feel like listening to a "bossy bride" when I had emailed him a few times in the last couple of months with questions.
