Imagine your friends and family still talking about the fun they had at your wedding for years to come ! After all of the flowers, table linens, centerpieces, favors, and food are long forgotten, what people actually REMEMBER about weddings is how much FUN they had. And the one thing that creates that fun atmosphere more than anything else is a live band.

The Sonoran Serenade Big Band definitely makes a "statement" about your good taste and style that no DJ or the typical "four guys with guitars" can match. Our talented and experienced Las Vegas quality dance band recreates the elegance and sophistication of the golden age of the big bands. And we play the best dance music of every era from the 1930’s thru the 1990’s, so our music is appealing to every guest at your wedding. Our male and female singers are two of the most talented vocalists in the Valley and have performed at venues from coast to coast. These are your favorite songs of all time that range from Sinatra and Elvis to the Beatles and Michael Buble …… and musical styles that range from ballroom dancing to high energy rock & roll. So the dance floor is busy all night long ... and we take special requests !

All wedding clients get their choice of up to 3 "special songs" even if they are not in our current repertoire that we will prepare and play for their "first dance" and other special dances throughout the evening.

The Sonoran Serenade Big Band makes a visual and musical impact that makes your wedding truly unique and memorable. Call (623) 398-9691 or email info@azdanceband.com today for further details and let us make your special day as perfect as it can be.

We offer the highest quality musical entertainment at very affordable prices.

We hired Sonoran Serenade Big Band instead of a DJ for our wedding and they were great! All of our guest enjoyed the music of the amazing band and everyone was talking about how unique they were. We loved having them be a part of our wedding and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and entertaining alternative to a DJ. John, the band manager, is especially awesome. He made us feel completely at ease that everything would run smoothly. And it did! This band rocks!

I LOVED working with Sonoran Serenade. There is nothing they can't do. John was able to find a classical guitarist for my ceremony, put together a custom package, find all the songs I wanted, and changed the arrival time of the entire band just a couple of days before the wedding. They sounded EXCELLENT. They get people dancing on the floor, had a FANTASTIC version of "Shout" (I highly recommend it). John and the whole band are friendly, professional, and someone I would hire again. I need to throw another party just to hire them. I can't wait to go see them play at Warren's Jazz bistro, just to hear them again. Thanl you again guys!

Sonoran Serenade was one of the most impressive things that happened at our wedding next to saying "I do." My husband was responsible for finding the music and considering my type A personalily, I wanted to be involved and it to be perfect....well it was!They responded to my husband within 12 hours of getting our first call and were so kind on the phone and made my husband feel at ease about selecting them. John Cowan, the band manager was with us every step of the way - he went to the venue to check size prior, met us when we came into town (we were out of state), helped select music and mostly just reassured us that it will be a great event and a fun party! added bonus, I was able to sing with this incredible 20 piece band. Thank you for being remarkable.!

The Sonoran Serenade band was the number one thing that people raved about after our wedding. We had a small, elegant receptionnd the Sonoran Serenade band truly made our wedding beautiful and memorable. Elvin is a professional, very responsive and he went out of his way to ensure that we got everything we wanted on our big day. I would recommend this band to everyone. Bystanders at the resort where we were married thought we were having a celebrity wedding once they heard the music...seriously. It was worth every penny. ny.

Elvin and the band were outstanding and made my daughter's wedding reception very fun and memorable. Elvin was very organized and professional and he took the time to meet and go over all of the details long before the wedding so that they could learn the special songs and make her wedding a "dream come true". Everybody danced all evening! My next two daughters hope to have his band at their weddings too!

Working with Elvin and the Sonoran Serenade Big Band was truly easy and they were very accommodating. Living in Kingman, AZ, we had our choice of bands from Las Vegas, Phoenix, and LA. Our reception was a 1940's style hangar party so Sonoran Serenade fit in perfectly. We chose them because of their sound, look, and more band for our buck. Elvin was very organized and on top of all the details. Overall, everyone was very satisfied and enjoyed the evening-very memorable.

I called Elvin Monteleone when we were planning our music for our reception. Throughout the whole process Elvin was very helpful, and responsive to any questions we had regarding all things band (songlist, stage, attire, first dance, ceremony music, cocktail hour, etc.) Simply put; The Sonoran Serenade Big Band was really the highlight of our reception. They were awesome. All of our guest commented on how cool the band was. If you like Big Band music and some 40's standards; then you'll love them. They have a male and female vocalist who are both great singers as they sing about 45% of the time. The rest of the playlist is instrumental. They do and will play 50's-present music and are willing to work with you for the atmosphere and party that you want to create. For our wedding they played their standard set with some 60's and 70's R&B that had our guests up and dancing. They have a big sound; really filled the reception room. I'm not sure I'd really change anything about our experience with Elvin or the band.
