The Sound Investment Band was the most talked about part of our reception. I can't even count how many people told us how much they loved the band. Guests who don't normally dance were up on the their feet dancing the night away. The band did a great job of choosing various songs that guests of all ages enjoyed. They even took requests throughout the night. I would choose Sound Investment Band in a heartbeat if I were planning another event.

Wow! I cannot thank Sound Investment enough for DJ'ing my wedding! I have heard the whole band play several times and absolutely fell in love with them. They are phenomenal and upbeat, really get people on the dance floor. You could request literally any genre or song, and they've got it covered perfectly.We decided to have Phil from Sound Investment, DJ our wedding and he was fantastic! Not only did he DJ but he sang a few sons including our wedding song, Billy Joel, "Just The Way You Are" which was incredible. The whole night was awesome, non-stop dancing from every age group. He even had our obscure requests. Prior to the wedding we had a great consultation where we listened to a ton of songs, very relaxed and cool to pick your playlists that way. I highly recommend Sound Investment Band or DJ. After our wedding I think 3 or 4 of my friends booked them as well!

Phil and the SIB have provided entertainment for the St. Anthony Italian Nite event for the past 8 years. We have only been doing this event for 10 years. They are extremely versatile and can slide from rock to old standards to old school ethnic music. Any request made can always be accomodated. They never fail to amaze the crowd at their performances and the event has been sold out since they began. They deserve a 5 out of 5 score and even better.

As the groom, the only thing I wanted was a live band and I was very happy with the band. During dinner they played at a level that you could still hear the person next to you talk and when dinner was over the party really started. The dance floor was crowded all night long and our guests have a great time.

A band was a must for our wedding, but many were so expensive. I will honestly say I was a little worried because Sound Investment was cheaper than the others we considered. However, they exceeded our expectations. The dance floor was packed the entire night! They learned two songs for us and accommodated all requests. The band even traveled to Baltimore for our event. We highly recommend this band for your wedding or special event.
