The DC Transit Band is a 10 piece dance band featuring the fabulous vocals of Lindsay Diles and Josh Alfred embelished by a four piece horn section and anchored in a veteran rhythm section.

We play a wide variety of popular dance music and our repertoire is packed with frequently requested songs at weddings, dances, and corporate events.

We offer a high quality Jazz Quartet to entertain your guests during the cocktail hour. For your dinner, we can offer an excellent easy listening dinner set sure to please folks of all ages. And when it's time to dance, we can keep 'em on the floor for the remainder of the night!

We'll work with you to plan the entire reception program. From your grand entrance and announcement of the Bridal Party, we can tailor the entire reception to meet your needs. We'll work with you to select your First Dance, the Mother & Son Dance, the Father a& Daughter Dance, and the Last Dance. We have special songs for the Cake Cutting, the Garter Throw, and the Boquett Toss.

Formed on 9 January 2011, with the vision of becoming a Wedding / Corporate Events and Festivals Band. We rehearse in Mannas, VA and our members reside throughout Northern Virginia and Maryland. Most of our musicians are teachers and have degrees from prestigious schools. We pride ourselves on giving you our best so your wedding or event will be a great memory for the rest of your life.

Live music will make your event special. Selecting our band will be one of the easiest and best decisions you'll make. Read less

The DC Transit Band played for our 25th wedding anniversary, and did a fantastic job. They played the best dance music as well as the requested "first dance" song. They kept the party jumping with their high energy performances, and also kept us on track acting as a MC to ensure we got the events (like cutting the cake) completed when we wanted. Their professionalism was excellent and we received tons of compliments during and after event from our guests about how great the band was -and they were! They play the perfect variety of music that everyone hears their favorite songs. You can't go wrong with a band that has 2 fabulous singers, great musicians, and of course, a horn section! We loved the DC Transit Band's performance at our event and would hire them again for sure!

DC Transit Rocked! They're an amazing group that play terrific music. Great arrangement, two awesome singers and every instrument you could want (including an horn section!). Plus Cam was really responsive and easy to work with and they made sure to play the songs we wanted to hear. And our guests raved about how good they were. Overall, they were terrific and we couldn't be happier. Thanks DC Transit!

If you are looking for a band, want incredible quality and value for your money, zero headaches, people who put up with your craziness, and a set of very happy, excited, and entertained guests – Good news. DC Transit Band is/does all that and more.

My fiancée and I crashed weddings and charity event, we drove to out of town to the north and south, we stood in bars and flopped on basement practice rom couches – all to see over a dozen bands. We wanted our event to be perfect – Meaning everyone would have a great time (dance a lot to great music), we would not spend a crap-ton of money, and probably most importantly, we would not have to worry about anything on our big day - so that we could just enjoy ourselves.

It is sad that we had to see so many bands before we realized that no one would top DC Transit – we could have saved ourselves literally days of time.
Seriously – If there is one piece of advice I can give to anyone considering a band for their event, don’t be fooled by DC transit’s relatively low fee – this is a situation where you get more than you pay for (in a great way!) Book them. You will not regret it.

They will rock your event, but probably even more valuable for us (and maybe for you?), they were incredibly accommodating of our desire to have customized songs, change plans at the last minute, send us recordings of new versions of particular songs, and generally good-naturedly demonstrate patience and understanding in the face of what most normal people would consider an overly demanding bride and groom.

I can’t say enough good things about the DC Transit Band. (I’d probably max out the character limit here.) But one final point – make sure you pick some songs that take advantage of their horns. They kick ass.

I was unbelievably fortunate to have found the DC Transit band!!! I was instantly the BEST Mother-of-the-Bride ever!!! Long before the actual date – Cam Towner – The managing musician - asked questions about the entire Wedding Ceremony and Reception as it was all in the same place, and set-up a timeline for the entire wedding. They provided all the equipment for an outdoor wedding, i.e.: the Officiates microphone - who thinks about that? I didn't! They provided all the LIVE music as the guests arrived (no recorded music) and set the tone for the entire wedding. My daughter walked down the aisle to a very special song that their male lead singer - Joshua Alfred- sang at my daughters request - It was perfect!!
Lindsay Diles, the lead female singer, took over as the Emcee and it was smooth sailing! The entire band was amazing!!
But beyond their outstanding talent and professionalism, here is the part that I will forever be indebted to DC Transit for – Tropical Storm Bill!!
The weather was beautiful - but we knew we “might” get some evening rain as we were on the outer edge of Tropical Storm Bill. We were at a beautiful wedding Pavilion in Frederick, but I had not wanted the rain/wind walls to the Pavilion to be attached – because I truly believed it would stay perfect! Funny thing – I really should have said yes to the rain/wind walls! But DC Transit played on – through two power outages and torrential downpours! It was a deluge of rain and wind!! The band moved their equipment away from the edges, the guests moved the tables in closer, and the band played on!!! When the Venue lost power the band sang and the guests sang with them! They saved my daughter’s wedding! It was truly amazing! They were absolutely the calming force in the storm!!!
I can’t say enough about The DC Transit Band. To ‘weather’ my daughter’s wedding was the culmination of years of experience and professionalism and LOVE - the DC Transit Band is amazing!!!

We booked DC Transit Band for our recent May wedding, and we are so glad we did! From the start, Cam the band leader, was engaging and responsive as we planned our day. He met with us and listened to all of our requests, but more importantly suggested ways to make the evening move more smoothly. On the day, the jazz quartet was great, a perfect accompaniment to our outdoor cocktail hour. During our reception, the full band was absolutely spectacular. They provided the perfect entertainment for our guests and kept everyone dancing all night. We expected the band to be great, but they exceeded our expectations ten fold. Professional, affordable, and extremely talented musicians, we cannot recommend their services more highly.

D.C. Transit played at our daughter's wedding and we could not be happier. Cam and the entire band were wonderful. While being very professional they were so much fun. You could tell that they really enjoyed being there and wanted to make our event very special.

Cam is wonderful to work with and we were impressed and liked him immediately when we met him and the band at a venue earlier where we went to hear them play.

I cannot say enough good things about him and the entire band.

We used the DC transit band for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music. They were incredible and our guests raved about them throughout the night and afterwards. They kept our dance floor moving and played a great selection of music. They were also extremely responsive to our emails and requests prior to the wedding, agreeing to learn a song for my husband and I to sing as a duet with the band in lieu of a first dance that they also provided to us to rehearse beforehand - it was a highlight of our wedding and a memory we will never forget. We had looked around at other bands in the DC area before selecting DC transit, and DC Transit is by far the best value for the quality of service and music that they provide. You can't go wrong selecting them!!

DC Transit went above and beyond for our wedding. They accommodated a request I thought no one would fufill and made this special event even more memorable than I ever thought it could be. Almost 3 weeks after the wedding I'm still running into people that are asking who this band was and where can I contact them. They are truly a top-notch, professional and incredibly fun band. No matter what the occasion is, DC Transit should be everyone's choice for live entertainment. As a musician, I was blown away by their musicianship.

The DC Transit Band was amazing!... I'll start off with coordinating with Cam the band lead and trying to organize the program for our wedding. Cam was so prompt in responding to any questions at any time, and any requests that I had he made it happen. They were the only vendor for my wedding that I did not feel stressed or didn't have to worry about anything at all. Any song choice we needed, they were able to play it. Although the song choice for our first dance and mother/grooms' dance was not listed on their repertoire, they were able to practice it and play it within a couple of weeks time. They also provided a jazz quartet during our cocktail hour which was perfect, and their instrumentals were so beautiful. They played a variety of music from the 60s to today!... Lindsey and Josh the lead singers were phenomenal, their voices had our guests so emotional especially during our first dance. They had all our guests on their feet, having a great time and everyone couldn't help but only to say that the band was what made our wedding spectacular and so magical!. They showed up on time, was very prompt, and coordinating with them was so easy and they were so reliable. We would highly recommend the DC transit band for any venue! We'll see them at our 10 yr anniversary!.
