The Drywater Band's credentialed lineup of music industry professionals includes notable recording artists, choreographers, session players, touring musicians, record producers, and certified audio engineers. With 14 lifetime Grammy awards/credits distributed amongst various Drywater personnel, the group has set a new standard for corporate, dance, & wedding entertainment. By matching the most appropriate vocalists and musicians to specific genre preferences, Drywater provides an authentic and highly customized entertainment option.

Instrumentation: The Houston, Texas based Drywater Band performs as a 7 band all the way to a 15-piece orchestra, and consists of male vocals, female vocals, keyboards, pedal steel guitar, lead guitar, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, bass, drums, fiddles/violin, and percussion. Various Drywater musicians and crew have performance, recording, and/or touring credits with Taj Mahal, Hank Williams Jr., Bonnie Raitt, Santana, La Mafia, Doug Supernaw, Isreal Houghton, James Fortune, Lonestar, Ray Price, Jay Leno, Jason Mraz, Don Henley, Kelly Osbourne, The Wailers, Smokey Robinson, Pat Green, Cory Morrow, Willie Nelson, and many more.

Repertoire: The Drywater Band plays a wide variety of different musical styles while maintaining a high degree of authenticity. The band's 300 song repertoire consists of Top 40, Rock, Country, R & B, Pop, Jazz, Latin, and Hip-Hop selections from a wide variety of artists including Stevie Wonder, George Strait, The Rolling Stones, Katy Perry, The Temptations, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Johnny Cash, Maroon 5, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Frank Sinatra, Beyonce, Lionel Richie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dierks Bentley, Pat Green, and many more.

Production: The Drywater Band's production includes premium sound, wireless microphones, energy efficient LED stage wash lighting, break music service, and master of ceremonies. From an intimate 50 person dinner in a small banquet room to a 1250 person corporate event in a 30,000 sq. ft. ballroom, Drywater can handle nearly any production challenge with the band's own equipment.

Weddings: Since 2004, The Drywater Band performed at over 275 wedding receptions. The group works closely with Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio brides, grooms, parents, and wedding planners to ensure that entertainment for your special day is scheduled and performed with special attention to detail.

Corporate: In addition to providing high-energy performances for corporate parties, Drywater can also provide dancers, instructors, and interactive dance lessons. In addition, the group is also well adept at performing "house band" duties at corporate awards ceremonies and presentations. Technical directors can rest assured knowing the band's familiarity with "stings", "in-ear monitors", "talk-back mics", "reprisals", "cues", and "stem mixes". Read less

The best band ever! We were so excited to be able to book them. My daughter wanted a wedding reception where everyone danced and this band accomplished that - the dance floor was always full. They learned 3 special songs for us and had a wide range of songs to select from. We HIGHLY recommend The Drywater Band. Thank you for a great evening - our guests raved about you!

The Drywater Band did an amazing job at our wedding! The MC'ing was not over-the-top and the music kept everyone dancing. Our guests are still talking about how great they were. Although they are more expensive than other bands out there, you truly get what you pay for. Thanks again for making our wedding such a special event!

Drywater is hands down the best wedding band I have ever heard! They were unbelievable. I know I may seem biased since it was my wedding, but I had an overwhelming amount of guests tell me the same thing. From the beginning of the booking, Andrea & Bruce were super responsive & helpful. Each member of the band was so talented. They really made it the perfect night & everyone was on the dance floor the entire night! I cannot say enough great things about this band. I would love to book them again someday for another event. Booking Drywater was one of the best decisions I made throughout my wedding planning. The variety of songs they can play is unmatched. Each of the "special songs" we requested they were able to play. From Beyonce's "Love on Top" to Michael Jackson, to George Strait - they really can play it all. What I liked most about them is that they were not the run of the mill "cheezy" band that you would expect at most weddings. They made each of my first dances so special and so memorable. They were even able to play the "Grand March" which turned out to be one of the highlights of the evening. BOOK DRYWATER ~ You will be happy you did! And book early - they are so popular, they book almost a year in advance.

Of all our vendors The Drywater Band was tops! Worth every penny! Fun, professional, great voices, super music! The dance floor was packed from the very first song to the last. So many guests said they didn't want to leave so they could enjoy the band. And most importantly, the bride and groom had the BEST time! I would recommend Drywater in a heartbeat!

I was a guest at the Parmer/Ancone wedding on 4-26. The Drywater Band was fantastic. Greatest mix of dance music ever. I felt like we were at a "big-name" concert. Vocalists were outstanding! Musicians outstanding! If they had played all night, we would have stayed all night!

Dry Water played at my son and new daughter's wedding in The Woodlands and they were great! They did a really good job of keeping things light during dinner, but you could feel the pulse building slowly until the lid popped off of the house. Big band and big fun. Did a great job of playing music the wedding couple picked out, supplemented by 15-20 of their hit arrangements. There is a reason all of their reviews are 5 stars....because this band is nothing but tremendous.

Drywater performed at my daughter's wedding on New Year's Eve. My daughter and her new husband, as well as all the guests loved the band. My daughter had indicated I could cut back on flowers as the band was more important. Drywater was recommended by a wedding planner friend of hers who indicated this band would keep the party going. They did not disappoint! They have an extensive list of songs and also provided the break music after we submitted the songs they wanted. My son is getting married in June and his future in-laws were at the wedding and have now booked Drywater! They are excellent. Andrea was a delight to deal with. They also handle the Master of Ceremony duties.

The Drywater Band was everything I hoped and more at our wedding reception! They had come recommended to me by a friend that had seen them at a wedding. After reading reviews and perusing their website, my fiance and I decided to go watch them play. After that, it was a done deal, and we booked them for our wedding. They were my splurge, as they were more expensive than other bands I was looking at, but they were worth it. They are very professional, great to work with, worked with a lot of my requests, extremely talented, and they know how to throw a party! They were the emcees at our reception and did a great job, and their music kept everyone on the dance floor, which was most important to me. They also have a huge depth of music to choose from. It was very hard to find bands that played both country and pop, and The Drywater Band does that easily. They also played The Grand March, which was a huge treat. I highly recommend them. They really ran the reception and made the night run smoothly and made everyone have an extremely good time!

Incredible!! We could not get over how wonderful the band was, and received so many compliments from all of our guests over their amazing performance. EVERYONE was out on the dance floor the entire night...across at least 4 generations! What an amazing gift they gave us to dance and celebrate with all of our friends and family - we will never forget it!

The Drywater Band is simply amazing. Their range of music styles is fantastic, and what is more, they do each style - Motown, Country, 80s, Disco - with the same unbelievable level of quality. As one of my wedding guests remarked "You can have the best venue, the most exquisite food, but all anyone will remember is if you had a great band." We danced all night and could not possibly have been any happier with our experience with the Drywater Band.

We hired The DryWater Band for our daughter's wedding and could not have been more pleased. Although the cost was more than we initially planned to spend, we hoped that the band would provide great music for our guests while not making it necessary to shout all evening. Our voices wouldn't have lasted 15 minutes! We were very pleased that they kept the volume at a good level for all - pleasantly loud for the guests that wanted to dance but not too loud for the older generation to be able to visit with one another. We were able to make the rounds and greet all of our guests with voices intact! The quality of the music was amazing - their ability to customize the band according to the type of music we requested meant we had vocalists who were experts in a specific genre, not jack of all trades. Our daughter and fiancee were able to hand-pick the playlist from a very long list of great songs which was modified somewhat by the band as they responded to the type of music that the crowd was enjoying the most - an arrangement which we felt was ideal. My communication with Andrea was always prompt and professional, which gave us a lot of confidence from the very beginning that this was going to be money well-spent. We were not disappointed - the DryWater Band was a big part of the success of our daughter's reception and we continue to hear what an amazing party it was, for young and old alike!

Our wedding would not have been the same without Drywater! It was everything we wanted from a band. They played a great variety of music and the dance floor was never empty. From the first email to the last, Andrea was so responsive and made sure all the details were correct for the big day. All of our guests raved about the band and how they had so much fun dancing. My brother and his fiancé ended up signing a contract with the band a couple of days later for their wedding next year. Drywater is worth every penny and will make your event unforgettable!

We have been receiving complements like crazy on what a wonderful performance they put on. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding band. My dad was super happy and loved all the songs they played. My sister-in-law is going to use them at her wedding in June.

Drywater Band was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. As per most brides I was very picky and took forever to decide on a band. Fortunately Andrea Wiggins was extremely patient with me! I emailed her a year before the wedding, but over months and months I still could not decide what I wanted. When I finally signed the contract, payment was simple and there were no hidden fees, or "fine print". She is very friendly and a refreshing reminder that nice people exist in the wedding industry!

This was a Detroit meets Houston wedding. I was trying to find a band to play Southern Rock and Motown.. two very separate genres. Andrea reassured me from the beginning that her team would cater to our wedding. They did. They were so amazing! Every guest (250) was on the dance floor for the entire night...no one wanted to leave after the last song. Really.

Bonus: they stayed to hang out at our after party, and sang. One of the coolest moments of the night, was sitting around the Remington Lounge as they busted out acapella. Their singers, their musicians, their entertainment... absolutely on point. I'm smiling as I write this review. They made our wedding one for the books. Thank you Andrea, and another Happy Birthday to your husband.

Fabulous. We got more compliments on the band than any other aspect of my daughter's wedding. We have used Drywater before and would not hesitate to use them again. You will not be sorry if you book them, they are well worth the price. Actually, would rate them a 10+ but this application will not allow me to do so.

This band was fabulous. They went above and beyond for my daughter's wedding and were worth every penny. My daughter is from Texas and her husband is from the Detroit area. We requested Country and Mo town music and agreed to a 9 piece band.
A 12 member band showed up with 2 fabulous black singers. One male and one female. The female singer sang the title song from movie "The Body Guard" and brought down the house. So many of out guests actually "watched" and listened to this beautiful song. I t made me want to cry. I can't say enough nice things about the band and every faucet of how they handled my daughter's wedding. Maggie

I can't rave about Drywater enough. I was first introduced to them when they played at my sister's wedding at the Hotel Galvez (6/5/2010), and couldn't believe how good they were.

I was hesitant at first to have a band since I find that they're usually better for listening than dancing, and dancing was very important to me (plus bands in general are much more expensive than a DJ). That's not the case with Drywater. They can read a crowd like nobody else, and I guarantee that all your guests will have a blast on the dance floor. They're not cheap, but they're worth every penny.

I can't even begin to count the number of people that have told me the band was one of their very favorite things about the wedding. Friends have already contacted me about getting them for their upcoming weddings.

I will be the first to admit that I was not enthusiastic about having a band during the reception as I've been to some weddings where the bands were awful. I am SO glad that my now husband and father talked me into going with Drywater because they were absolutely phenomenal. They had every single guest on the floor dancing the entire time that they played and I was incredibly impressed by their ability to go from country to soul to rock n roll without missing a beat. I would have made a huge mistake if I had gone with a DJ or any other band besides Drywater. If you want to guarantee that your guests will have a fantastic time and dance the night away then you need to talk to Drywater.

We were married on September 14th in Lakeway, Texas and since then, the thing we have heard over and over and over again from ALL of our guests is, "You're band was AMAZING!!!"

We cant say enough good things about Drywater band. They SEEMLESSLY transitioned from "Blurred Lines" to "Friends in Low Places" to "Proud Mary" and had the dance floor packed the ENTIRE night. They were extremely easy to work with before the event, showed up on time on the day of and each member of the band was VERY professional.

Bottom line, if we had to do it all over again, we would ABSOLUTELY choose Drywater Band to play at our wedding. If they weren't available on that day, we would find a date that they were available. Drywater Band will be one of the best decisions you make on your wedding day!

Andrea was very quick to respond to my emails and the band kept our guests up and moving all night! They also did a fantastic job being the "Master of Ceremonies" and announcing the wedding party; very smooth and upbeat! I would recommend this band in a heartbeat to anyone... if you are looking for a band for a wedding, corporate event, holiday party, etc. Thanks Andrea and Drywater for everything!

Wow. I've been to a lot of weddings and Drywater is hands down the best wedding band I've ever seen. Music is very important to my husband and I, so we did tons and tons of research. We probably looked at most of the wedding bands in Texas. Drywater impressed us because they had such an extensive set list and great voices. They don't sound like your typical cheesy wedding band. Throughout the planning process, their manager, Andrea, and band leader Bruce were so helpful and professional. Seeing and hearing the band live on our wedding day exceeded my expectations. They made our wedding so much fun and kept the dance floor packed until the last song. So many of my guests have told me the music at our wedding was the best they had ever heard at a wedding. Drywater is definitely priced on the higher side, but you get what you pay for and you won't be disappointed!

Pricey, but I cannot over exaggerate how fantastic this band is! They are simply INCREDIBLE and made our reception such a party! We got endless complements on the band and probably my favorite part was that my grandmother had just as much fun as my college friends. Andrea was phenomenal to work with before and during the reception. She was very quick to respond via email and thorough, which is not the case with all wedding vendors. We had the 8 piece band. They are certainly an expensive choice, but I don't regret a thing. At least one bride-to-be who attended my wedding is now using Drywater and possibly more. I would recommend them again and again!

I’m from Houston, and though my husband is from Pittsburgh, he loves him some country music. But we also wanted to be able to get some Top 40 and some Oldies into the mix. Enter DryWater Band. They learned a new song for us (our first dance was to Brad Paisley’s “Then”), and were so easy to work with and professional from start to finish.

Our guests loved them, and many were on the dance floor all night long. In fact, one of my only regrets about our wedding is that I / we didn’t dance more! We loved getting to chat and catch up with friends from afar, and before we knew it, the night had flashed by (yes, it’ll happen to you too!).

The only advice I have (regardless of what band/DJ you select) is that if you really want to be sure that everyone hears a particular announcement (people get so distracted that sometimes it’s hard to hear even what’s coming through a mic), make sure to tell the emcee to wait for a few minutes in order to truly get everyone’s attention. (specific example: my mom missed our cake cutting, b/c she missed the announcement). Not anyone’s fault – just not something I thought ahead of time would even be a possibility.

In short, the music was great, the energy was consistently high, and they did a wonderful and very professional job! HIGHLY recommend!

We were nervous at first because we had never heard the band play before but the band came highly recommended from a friend who had heard the band at another wedding reception. The band's website was so helpful and it made the decision easy. Andrea was amazing to communicate with especially as I became more overwhelmed as the wedding drew near; she was always so understanding. As we walked into the reception, we were so impressed with the talent in the band. Words simply cannot express the fun times had by all due to your amazing performance. Throughout the night everyone asked who you were and were extremely complimentary. As we danced to the last song of the evening, we looked around and realized few guest had left the reception and we realized that was made possible to the The Drywater Band. We will be sure to pass your name to anyone looking for a band. Thank you for making our wedding reception incredibly memorable.

As all our guests commented that evening that the Drywater Band was the best wedding band they ever heard. We must agree. They kept our dance floor packed the entire night. With a mixture of country, rock and roll and standards there was definitely something for everyone. They were excellent at reading the crowd-when to speed it up and when to slow it down. They played our father/daughter, bride/groom, mother/son songs perfectly.

With a mixture of country, rock and roll and standards there was definitely something for everyone. They were excellent at reading the crowd-when to speed it up and when to slow it down. They played our father/daughter, bride/groom, mother/son songs perfectly. Read less

The Drywater Band played for my daughter's wedding. They had the crowd on their feet and dancing the whole night! They play all styles of music and have a large repertoire. All the guests kept asking where we found the band. You cannot go wrong booking this band for your event, I highly recommend them!

Drywater Band was the best decision we made for my entire wedding hands-down. Soo many of our guests have commented that they were the best wedding band they've ever heard. They were so professional and accommodating from the beginning and willingly learned several new songs for us in addition to their already extensive set-list. My grandfather said that dancing to the band at our wedding was one of the top-10 experiences of his life and I couldn't agree more. They even accommodated a last minute request during the second set that night. I recommend DryWater to anyone who wants to dance all night and make sure their guests have an amazing time.

My husband and my parents are really the ones that convinced me to go with a band over a dj; I had these terrible visions of Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer showing up at my reception.
We decided to go with The Drywater Band based solely on their sample music from their website, and from reviews we read online (it also helped that they have played at The Aggie Ring Dance). When the band started at my reception.....I was blown away. Their instrumentals are perfect, every person in the band is a great singer, and the blonde female singer, she had some pipes on her!!! Their music selection was varied and very appropriate. We heard a mix of everything from George Strait and Pink to The Beatles and Jimmy Buffett. We had TONS of our wedding guests coming up to us during the reception and tell us how awesome the band was, and they were right!!!

People STILL talk about how great the band was at our wedding! They set the mood of the atmosphere of the whole reception- and that's not a light load to carry! My family was please and EVERYONE dance the night away. They were great to work with in communication leading up to the wedding too. I didn't feel like the night was about them either, but a reflection of what I love, music, dancing, and people. It brought the whole wedding together!

Drywater performed at our wedding in Oct. of 2011, and we could not have been happier. It was amazing that half of musicians performing in the band were grammy award winners. This is a GREAT band with top quality production. We shopped many bands, and while Drywater was among the priciest, they were worth every penny! Thank you Drywater!

OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE this band!! I can't say enough about them! Everyone at my wedding had a blast with them & so did I. My husband & I still get people talking about this band. The Drywater Band was fabulous at my wedding and I would love to hire them for any other party I have (whenever that may be).

They play a variety of songs and really know how to get people on the dance floor. My brother got married a few months prior to me & I was getting pulled in the direction of hiring the same or same type of band they used. I'm so glad I stuck to my plan. We loved the band & it seemed as though they really enjoyed themselves too which is very important to me.

They are worth every penny! many of our guest kept asking us "where did you find this band?" or "this band is so good!" we had no doubt that their performances throughout the night would make our wedding!

The band sounded great and went with the feel of the crowd. Everyone had a great time dancing. The band members were very talented and played very well.

The only thing I would suggest is double checking with the wedding planner or family with regards to the first dance songs. Ours were out of order and the band had to start over. It's not a big deal but could have been avoided.

Overall we loved having them play at our wedding reception!
