The Downtown Band was amazing! A pleasure to work with and incredible to watch perform. Their energy is great and everyone at our wedding loved dancing all night. All our friends raved about how fantastic the band sounded - in a town full of musicians it's always a treat to find talent like them! Would definitely recommend them to anyone hosting a wedding or party - they are wonderful and SO MUCH fun.

WOW!! If I could rate Justin and his group higher than a 5.0 I would because they were FABULOUS. They were so easy to work with and did exactly what they said they were going to do! Our father/daughter and mother/son songs were not on their playlist but they obviously could be now because they played them both and did a fantastic job. Everyone has commented to us about how great they were. Their sound was top-notch and they all seemed to be having just as much fun as our guests. When the evening was over I told them they were PERFECT - and it was so true. If you want a great evening of music and fun, get The Downtown Band.

If you're looking for THE BAND to hire for the party of a lifetime, look no further. Justin and The Downtown Band are extremely professional to work with and leave you with only one responsibility: having fun! They were more than willing to learn songs for our special dances and played them with such ease. At one point during our special night, the entire party got such a fun surprise with the horn section on the dance floor with us playing "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon. Everyone at our party was sure to tell us that The Downtown Band was the best band they've ever heard at a wedding. You will not be disappointed!

We booked this band because of all the great feedback we heard and it not only lived up to what I heard, but exceeded it by a landslide. There was never a time when people were not on the dance floor and the band was extremly responsive to the mood and played songs accordingly. If you're looking for a great time, look no further.

I had two friends who had previously hired The Downtown Band for their weddings nd I KNEW I had to have them at my reception. When I decided on a time of year to get married, I checked with them before setting a date. I was willing to work around their schedule, that's how awesome this band is. They are professionals, you don't have to worry about a thing. You don't even need to provide them a play list, they can feel the crowd and make your wedding into a party. My group of friends is depressed because I was the last to be married and we don't know if we will ever see Justin and the band again. They are true professionals and you will never regret the decsion choosing them.

I am a wedding planner at a hotel in Charlotte, and I must say, this is one of the best bands I've worked with. They arrived on time, were responsive to all day-of changes, and were great performers! The music was fantastic, not too loud (usually I have to ask the band to turn it down), and were able to accomodate "non-band" songs that were special requests (i.e. the cupid shuffle, etc.). All in all, I Would definitely reccomend Jason and the Downtown Band!

We cannot thank The Downtown Band enough for ALL that they did to help making our wedding such a special day! Justin was such a pleasure to work with. He is a professional and we always heard back from him with answers to our questions. He helped guide us along so that we felt comfortable with what arrangement we chose and how the flow of the night would be. He made booking a band for our wedding simple and fun. We cannot tell how much that mean to us.

They traveled all the way from Nashville to Charlotte. They arrived with no problems. In fact, our venue had nothing but great things to say about them. Throughout the day, we heard how professional and friendly the band was. The staff at the venue really appreciated working with them.

The entire reception was unbelievable and PERFECT. Jason did such an awesome job the entire night! He got the crowd involved was absolutely perfect! His timing was impeccable. We could not have imagined it going any better than it did!

The banded sounded great. Nobody complained about anything! The band read the crowd and played great music all night long! In fact, nobody wanted to leave the dance floor. Even the DJ music was fun and had folks on the dance floor. It was a huge party and everyone loved the band!

It was perfect from beginning to end! We would absolutely highly recommend The Downtown Band to anyone.

With love,
The new Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Jessica DiMicco

If you are reading this review, look no further. This band is tremendous. They are able to read a crowd and the dance floor was never empty. Our guests are still talking about the band and the Uptown Girls... saying it was the best band ever! A bartender at the hotel said he had worked there a long time and without a doubt this band was the best he had heard. If you want great musicians and vocalists and great fun then this is the band.

The Downtown Band played at our wedding and they were AMAZING! We used strings for the ceremony and they did an amazing job. The horn section led everyone out from the ceremony to the reception site which was a lot of fun and the guests loved it! They played the perfect set during cocktail hour and then finally we had the full 10 piece band at the reception and they were out of this world! Several people have told me they were the best wedding band they have ever seen. Justin is wonderful to work with! Very nice, helpful and responsive and he did an amazing job MCing the whole night. He also set us up with someone to play at the welcome party the night before the wedding and they did an awesome job! Overall we couldn't be happier and I have already recommended them (before the wedding even) to a friend who is using them and will continue to do so!

They are fabulous musicians and performers and not only fun to dance to but also wonderful to watch. Even guests who don't like to dance (can you imagine?!) were transfixed just watching them. All of our interactions with Justin were positive and we were thrilled with his performance. If you have an opportunity to work with him, you really should - you'll be very happy!

The Downtown Band plus the Uptown Girls added were the very best. They provided piano music through cocktail hour. Justin did a great job announcing cake cutting, toasts, etc. When the Downtown Band started playing after dinner the dancefloor was immediately full. We received so many wonderful comments about not only how great the Band was from sound perspective but also the song choices were enjoyed by all. Could not recommend the Downtown Band enough. Great evening was had by all!

The Downtown Band was more than we ever could have hoped for in our wedding band. They were so awesome at reading the crowd and playing accordingly. Beautiful ceremony music, classy cocktail music and then such fun dancing music when it got a little later. Justin the main contact and singer has such a great personality. Our guests loved him! These are class-act, talented folks. We are so happy they were part of our day.

We had The Downtown Band play at my daughter's wedding reception and had an overwhelmingly positive experience on all counts! From the booking to the onsite setup, everything was handled in a very professional and courteous manner. And when it came time for the band to actually perform, they were amazing. We had many comments from the guests about how "tight" they were and how great they sounded. Also, Justin emceed in a very mature and appropriate fashion. The band was high energy and really added to the enjoyment of the whole event. I HIGHLY recommend this band!

We absolutely loved EVERYTHING about The Downtown Band! They were incredible and provided the perfect music for our cocktail hour and reception. We had the ten piece band, which kept the party going all night long. It was such a treat when all the trumpets and brass came out onto the dance floor.

Justin is great at reading the crowd and knowing what to play. Every member of the band is extremely talented and they have such an amazing repertoire of songs. The dance floor was packed all night long with some family members that I have never seen dance at other weddings. Since the wedding, we have received so many positive compliments from our guests about the band. People continue to tell us how much fun they had and that this was the best band they have ever seen!

Justin was wonderful to work with and he made the planning process and logistics so easy. They traveled two hours to our reception site and the setup was perfect. We are so happy we had The Downtown Band play at our wedding, it made it a magical night that we will never forget.

Without a doubt, I would recommend them for any event. I hope I can go to a wedding in the future where they are playing because I would love to see them in action again!

We just cannot think of enough great things to say about The Downtown Band! The 5-piece ensemble was the perfect size for our venue and they kept the dance floor packed all night. They did an excellent job of "reading the crowd" and playing music to suit all tastes and ages and skillfully announced the events like cutting the cake and giving the bouquet without killing the festive mood. It's a difficult thing to keep 20-somethings and 60-somethings dancing all night, but Justin and The Downtown Band did it with ease. They were certainly the highlight of the reception and - a month later - our guests are still talking about them and how much fun they had. Even our wedding coordinator and the venue manager said they were the best band they had ever had play at one of their events! Two thumbs up for sure!

The Downtown Band exceeded our expectations on every level. They were so accommodating to all of our pre-wedding requests, all of our song choices, and blew us out of the water the day of our wedding. They were so easy to work with. Justin and the Downtown girls truly engaged everyone at the wedding and got the crowd going. We had so many people come up to us to say that this was by far the BEST band they have ever heard at a wedding. For all of the weddings we have been to, we have never seen the dance floor so packed and for the entire night. Truly can't say enough about how fabulous they are.

I can't say enough about this band. They just played for my daughter's wedding here in Lexington, Ky. All of our guests are still talking about them. Justin is extremely professional and talented. We also had the Uptown Girls who were fantastic. My daughter also wanted to add the trumpet player to the the band (it became an 8 piece band) and that is really the way to go. This band needs to be playing at more Lexington Weddings, they are awesome!!

We were lucky enough to have them play at our wedding. Oh my lord is really the only words when you see this band. This band was above and beyond anything we ever could dream. To start off with Justin is amazing to work with and helped us in the decision process of what we needed. Jason and the band can not thank you all enough. This was the highlight of the night by far. From our family to friends every single one of them said the Downtown Band is by far the best wedding band they have ever seen. My friends in Chattanooga are still talking about them. There is talk of wedding crashing just to see these guys again. The ladies were amazing. All the instrument players were amazing. We are so extremely pleased with our decision thank you all very much. If they are not booked for you wedding or event hurry they are worth at least double of what they charge we promise you.

As a wedding planner, we interact with numerous bands throughout the year. The Downtown Band quickly became a favorite at a recent wedding at aVenue in Nashville, TN. They were reasonably priced with options to match any budget. They were quick to respond and thorough in their questions about the schedule of the evening. Justin is a fantastic lead - we loved the variety of music, the little bits of choreography thrown in and their ability to keep the crowd on their feet! He adjusted easily to changes and requests throughout the night and MC'd the event with ease. Two thumbs up from us!

They rocked the reception for several hours! A month later and we are still hearing from family, friends, and even other vendors that worked our reception how great The Downtown Band performed!! All I wanted was for my dance floor to be packed - and it was for hours!!

I highly recommend them. Their energy and musical talent is sure to make any occasion unforgettable!

First and foremost, The Downtown Band is full of incredibly talented musicians. They are true artists! The band is professional, entertaining, and interactive. They really understand what it takes to get a crowd participating without being overly aggressive or cheesy.

Their song catalog is extensive so you can be assured that they have you covered...from oldies to current top 40 hits.

Our guests couldn't stop talking about how great they were. Do not hesitate to hire them!

Since our wedding, we've had numerous friends tell us it was the most fun wedding they ever attended, and a lot of that has to do with the Downtown Band. I don't think there was a single moment when there wasn't a decent crowd of people on the dance floor.

Justin was really easy to communicate with and very flexible to our schedule. They played songs that satisfied all age groups at the wedding. I really can't recommend them enough if you want to provide your guests (and yourself) with a super fun night. They're by far the best wedding band I've ever seen.

I am BURSTING at the seams at how incredible Justin and the Downtown Band was for our October wedding at FrontPorch Farms. Literally, one of my favorite parts of our wedding. Justin is an absolute doll who is professional, timely, and flexible. They made our special songs sound so original and were so flexible in adding them to the set! They provided a "Sinatra" hour during the cocktail time and then played for the rest of the reception while MC'ing the whole thing. There is seriously not one song they cannot do. They have the ability to accompany any size venue or occasion needed. With a husband as a drummer, it was important for a NO-CHEESE band...these guys killed it. Literally, every single person that talks about our wedding mentions how good the band was. Justin also was willing to customize packages to fit our desires. Do yourself a favor and set aside money for this vendor. It will totally be a highlight!

The Downtown Band was hands-down the best investment we made in our wedding. Justin and the downtown band not only handled our reception but also our ceremony and cocktail hour.

They played absolutely beautiful music throughout the ceremony, including a fantastic instrumental rendition of "lost in this moment with you" as I walked down the aisle that had our guests sniffling with tears in their eyes by the time we made it to the front. The string duet never missed a cue throughout the whole ceremony!

At the reception, pretty much immediately after the band started up all of our guests, from my 20 year old nephew to my husband's 70 year old parents, were on the dance floor and that was where everybody stayed the whole night. The Downtown Band knew how to jumpstart the dance floor after the cake cutting, how to rile up the younger crowd as the older folks retired for the evening, and exactly which crazy requests to ignore.

The number one comment we got from our guests was about how amazing the band was. There was still a huge group of us on the dance floor when it was time for the band to go home and we were all having so much fun that we ended up going downtown until 2:30am! The Downtown Band was definitely instrumental in making our wedding a success. Will happily refer them to all our friends and family and probably start following them on Facebook to see when their next public gigs are.

Mike and I couldn't not have asked for a better band to play at our wedding! We stumbled upon the Downtown Band online while wedding planning and from the get-go the band was wondering-- so easy to work with, always quick to respond to emails, & honest about what we needed to make our day what we wanted. Of all the fabulous things at our wedding, the band is what we still hear friends talk about! They played thr best songs and were so fun to party with during the reception- they even did the limbo with us!! When it was time for us to leave, the dance floor was still packed & our guests weren't bummed we were leaving, but that it meant the band would stop playing! I'd book The Downtown Band again in a heartbeat!! -Lindsay & Mike Ridenour

I cannot say enough great things about Justin (lead singer) and The Downtown Band. From the very beginning, they were quick to respond and easy to work with. Justin's friendly demeanor, energetic attitude and charisma gets your guests out of their seats because they WANT to dance and join in on the fun. A live band brings a whole new dimension to a wedding reception and this band brought their A-game during every song! They learned new songs just for us and did an excellent job filling in the gaps between the songs we requested. I would DEFINITELY recommend The Downtown Band if you're looking to have an unforgettable event for you and your guests. Thank you Justin and The Downtown Band for rocking it out at our wedding reception! We loved every moment!

The Downtown Band was extremely professional and great to work with! They were very accomodating with our song requests and really made our night special by playing specific music we loved. We also really liked how they put their own spin on songs instead of trying to sound exactly like the artist, ie sound effects or sounding unnatural. They really sounded amazing, had great energy, and had the dance floor packed the whole night!

I would like to use words like 'wow' and 'fantastic' and 'awesome' to describe the Downtown Band experience during our wedding, but I don't think that would really do them justice. Put it this way, we keep finding ourselves revisiting every shaky cell phone camera video that our guests sent us of our reception just so we can listen to music in the background. On a related note...if you book The Downtown Band...book a videographer.
We decided to book the entire 10 piece band even though we were only anticipating around 100 guests. The great thing is, at absolutely no point did we feel as if the band overpowered the room. They fit in perfectly from the ceremony music, through the cocktail hour, and all the way through the reception. We had an eclectic crowd of 20 somethings through middle age-rs and absolutely everyone commented on how great the music was.
Of course you can't talk about The Downtown Band without spending a little extra time talking about Justin. From the very first email we sent, we knew that Justin actually cared about what we wanted in entertainment. He was more than willing to work with whatever music we suggested, and was just as willing to take the reigns when we ran out of ideas. A true professional. What's even better is that you can get some free previews of exactly what you can expect at one of Justin's gigs around Nashville. Our favorite place to stalk...I mean...watch him perform was at Sambuca in the gulch:)
I know that we'll be looking back at one of those shaky cell phone camera videos in a few years just like people look at that viral video of Paul Rudd in his previous life as a bat-mitzvah DJ. We'll be glad that we booked Justin and The Downtown Band when we did. Don't miss the opportunity to book these guys!!

The Downtown Band provided the music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (10-piece band). They were amazing! Our guests were coming up to us all night long complimenting the band and asking where we found them. Even in the video of our first dance, you can hear guests in the background discussing how great the band sounded. Justin was very professional but fun to work with and responded quickly to all of our e-mails. They followed through on all of our requests, which included playing a couple of special dance songs for us that were not shown on their song list. Outside of a few special requests, we left the song selections up to the band, and they did a wonderful job playing songs that fit the various age groups we had. They had everyone up and dancing. Even some family members who never dance got out on the dance floor. We are so happy we selected The Downtown Band, they were definitely one of our favorite parts of our wedding day.

Even some family members who never dance got out on the dance floor. We are so happy we selected The Downtown Band, they were definitely one of our favorite parts of our wedding day. Read less

I could not say enough good things about Justin and The Downtown Band! They were so flexible with last minute changes to our reception plans and did a great job of incorporating my guests. Their music is incredible (and they have a lot of variety!) and they really set the tone for a great party. I would recommend them to everyone! You will not be disappointed!! Talented, fun, genuine, and so easy to work with!

We loved The Downtown Band at The All Academy and ROTC Military Ball! They did everything we requested from a specific military song tribute to a great dance to start off the evening. They were energetic and played just the right songs to keep the group dancing. We were hoping people would stay well into the evening and this band made that happen. We were so pleased with this band!

I am a wedding consultant out of the St. louis area. I had the pleasure of working with Justin with The Downtown Band on all aspects leading up to the wedding from ceremony music to the wedding reception. He was professional and willing to honestly tell you his opinion on flow and music choices. The night of the wedding, I was very impressed with how well the band sounded and how their energy kept the wedding guests on the dance floor all night long! Justin embraced some of our non- traditional music "mini sets" and they went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend them and will continue to do so for my clients who are looking for an evening jammed packed with dancing, energy and fun!

The Downtown Band exceeded all of our expectations from start to finish! They were very informative with their questionnaire that allowed us to better enjoy the wedding day knowing they had all of their questions answered. They arrived on time and needed little guidance. The ceremony music was right on cue at every moment. Once the reception began the band leader knew all the names by heart as he announced the wedding party. When they started playing music, they got everyone involved from the oldest to youngest. I couldn't count on two hands how many people complimented us on the band. The next week, a friend of ours scheduled the same venue and told us the venue coordinator was already suggesting the Downtown Band. Great band!

We loved the band!! Everyone was on the dance floor all night long and they were just wonderful. I asked them to do something special for just the bridesmaids and they did that and it was so fun! There were a couple of songs we asked them to play that were not on their list but they did not play those, but it did not matter all their songs were better than I imagined, and they learned all the important ones for the dances and stuff! I highly recommend this band!

I loved working with Justin and the Downtown Band. His set list was amazing, he listened and accommodated our requests, and we happily danced the night away much later than we anticipated. Everyone commented on what a fun wedding reception it was, and I know that's mostly due to The Downtown Band's music.
