The band was excellent to work with and completely professional. One of the highlights of our big day for sure. We had a very diverse crowd so it was not going to be easy to entertain everyone. All of our guests were on the dance floor and everyone kept saying how great the entertainment was. They even learned our first dance song! You will be so happy if you hire Str8up for your event!

Our wedding was over two years ago now and we still get comments about what a fun wedding we had and I think the band had a lot to do with it. They are very entertaining. People of all ages danced at our wedding. If I could have another wedding I would book this band again. I love the way they transition to the next song in a set without pausing and having a lot of awkard commentary. Its like having a dj but much better.

This band was unbelievably good! They enjoy playing together, and that energy is contagious. Excel Lewis is the band's manager, and he worked with us on creating the songlist. Lenora, lead vocalist, volunteered to be our emcee. People danced the whole night, and kept remarking on how wonderful the band was (to us and to the band). They were also a steal for a six-member band, and they would've been worth it at twice the price.
