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

How can we begin to tell you how great DC Transit Band was. They kept the party going all night with great music and were able to read the crowd beautifully. We got so many complements from people about how great the band was. I wanted to play a special song for my wife on banjo and they were down for it and made me sound great. Also, they lead a great Hora (for those looking at Jewish weddings). I seriously can not begin to recommend them enough. We plan on going to hear them at events around D.C. Cam was so great working through.

I'm a wedding planner, and I've worked with The DC Transit Band on two weddings now. Both times I've been blown away by their professionalism, flexibility, and commitment to making each wedding the very best it can be. The members of the band are all consummate musicians, and they bring incredible energy to their performances. The DC Transit Band isn't your typical "wedding band." They provide an awesome experience for you and your guests, and they're there to support their couples throughout the process of planning the entertainment portion of their wedding. They're my #1 choice when recommending live music to couples, and I can't wait to work with them again!

If you want a band that is accommodating, friendly, has a wide range of songs to suit every taste, and sounds great playing them, you'll want to book The DC Transit Band. I can't tell you how many guests commented on how great the band was. They played for six hours and the energy that they brought to the room never flagged. People were up and dancing all night. They even hit the photo booth, which was awesome.

From my first inquiry in February to the end of my daughter’s wedding last weekend, it was clear I was dealing with consummate professionals who love music, thrive on crowd feedback, and can get (and keep) a party going!! Leading up to the event, our venue coordinator confirmed that this was a great band with which to work and that even she had received positive feedback about the band. I have received several comments, texts, messages, and posts from our guests about this fantastic band. As with any big event, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes activity, but the band was front and center for my daughter’s wedding making it “the best day of her life.” Actually, they are masterful at both: the behind-the-scenes activity managed by Cam Towner made the event look effortless. He spoke with my daughter and me before the event to make sure everything was on track, prepared a timeline of the event, a script to ensure order and pronunciations were correct, and added songs to the band’s repertoire for the father-daughter dance and closing numbers. Customer service was OUTSTANDING! The jazz quartet was perfect for the cocktail hour, and I honestly wanted to dance during dinner hour music—it’s all that uplifting! Their specialty though was in creating a fun and festive atmosphere for the reception. The dance floor was never empty, the sound was great, the lead singers were amazing, and the musicians were talented and versatile—just the perfect blend of creativity, energy, and technique. They played just the right mix of current hits, party classics, and special requests. Wow!! We literally had to herd people off the dance floor for the sparkler send-off. I honestly cannot recommend DC Transit Band highly enough!

The DC Transit Band is a group of absolute pros. You'll love working with Cam, the band's bass player and head logistics and coordination man! I promise, keep looking for a band and you will not find a higher-quality, more talented, more professional and more party-oriented group out there for the money. These were some of the best dollars we spent for our ENTIRE wedding - our guests (along with my wife and I!) were talking about these guys for weeks after the wedding.

DC Transit played at our ceremony and reception--they are amazing! They had the whole room dancing, and our guests loved them. They were still talking about our band days after the wedding! Their band manager, Cam, is very responsive, reliable, and easy to work with. They took all of our requests, and their rate is more than fair. I can't recommend them enough!

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!
