The Highballs played at my wedding on June 28, 2014, in Athens, and it was an absolute BLAST. My husband and I had seen them perform in the area several times, so we knew we were getting a great and extremely fun band, but I can't say enough about how Meredith helped make the event run seamlessly. Her event planning experience shines through as she truly has as much talent in this area as in her singing and performing - she was organized, thorough, helpful in the whole process, and kept things running smoothly all night on the day of the event. Guests are still talking about how much fun they had at our reception, and this is thanks in no small part to the job that Meredith and the Highballs did. They are amazing!

It's shameful that we have taken so long to post our feedback because the Highballs were PHENOMENAL! We could not have gotten any luckier, and almost everyone who was at the wedding followed up to get more information about the band. My aunt in South Carolina even called them to see if they were available for her son's wedding next spring (they weren't). THAT'S HOW GOOD THEY ARE!

Meredith was wonderful to work with and everyone was delightful. The talent is through the roof. These guys are the real deal and we feel so blessed that they were able to play our reception. We had a relatively short engagement and I was a little bit of a space cadet when it came to wedding stuff, despite being very organized in my "real life," and Meredith was a champ and so cool about everything. It made my life so much easier to just put my trust in the team, and my spaciness certainly could have meant we had an unpleasant surprise, but instead, they were even better than we'd hoped for, and we KNEW they would be good. Very professional, very personable, kind, considerate, talented, fun, approachable--just perfect in every way. I can't say enough about them and hope we'll have another chance to hear them perform soon. Immediately after the wedding, my parents and I were like, "Let's have a Christmas party so we can get the Highballs to play again!" I've recommended them to everyone.

The Highballs put on a show last night like I have never seen before from a band. Their energy was so amazing they made set my already great wedding over the top. They were so great to work with from day one, always there to answer questions and provide comfort in the stressful wedding planning process. The wedding guests were coming up to my wife and I and telling us how incredible the band was and asking us questions about them. I would recommend The Highballs to everyone! Book them for your event I promise you will not be sorry!

There is not one negative thing I could say about the Highballs. They were amazing and wonderful to work with every step of the way! After seeing my friends and sister deal with other bands, I was very appreciative of all of the help with planning Meredith offered! She really understands the flow of a wonderful party and they had everyone on the dance floor all night! Even on the big day, she would come by and give me a "ten minute" count until the cake cutting, garter toss, etc. which really allowed me to just concentrate on having a good time because I knew she had everything under control!

We had an incredible experience with the Highballs from start to finish. Meredith was helpful and friendly throughout the process, was always responsive to requests and concerns, and did a great job of keeping in touch with us in the months leading up to the wedding without overwhelming us with information.

Most importantly, though, the band is fantastic! They did a great job of running the reception and keeping things moving, and the music is awesome. They're great -- high energy, enthusiastic, and just plain fun. Many, many guests told us afterwards that the Highballs weren't only a highlight of our reception, but one of the best wedding bands they had ever heard. We had to agree!

Their playlist is long and varied, and there wasn't a dud in the songs they played for us. They also have an extremely broad appeal -- we had a very varied crowd in terms of age and occupation -- everything from graduate students to society movers and shakers to 90 year-old relatives. The Highballs had a knack for playing to the whole crowd, keeping everyone on the dance floor, and making sure people were having a good time.

And just as a tip: Make sure they play "Like a Prayer." You'll regret it forever if you don't. Thanks, Highballs!

The Highballs played at my best friend's wedding in Athens in 2011 and were amazing. In fact, when we began planning our wedding my dad's only request was that they play at our wedding as well. Meredith was a pleasure to work to leading up to the wedding and the music was great at our wedding! The dance floor was packed thanks to their great music. They read the crowd and kept playing songs that everyone loved. One of the musicians also provided the music for our ceremony for a minimal charge which great and very convenient. Our wedding was so much fun and a huge part of that was thanks to the Highballs!

Jason and I knew we wanted The Highballs from the beginning and we couldn't be happier with our decision! From our first meeting to our wedding day, Meredith had everything under control and right on schedule! If you're looking for a fun, energetic band that everyone, and I mean everyone, will love, you HAVE to get The Highballs!!

The Highballs are pure fun and energy! We had a great experience pre-wedding as well as on the big day. Meredith was beyond helpful with the planning process and flexible with our song choices. The band wants it to be "your day" and is adamant on making the music reflective of you and your guests.

At the reception, people were on the dance floor the ENTIRE time and loving the song selections. I don’t think my husband and I sat down the whole night. I heard so many comments on their excellent performance and my husband and I couldn't have been more pleased.

Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without The Highballs!

We could not be happier that we chose The Highballs to play at our wedding reception. Many of our guests were used to the "same old band circuit" of Atlanta bands and loved hearing a band that was fresh and different! Meredith was so easy to work with and made sure that every detail was set for the big day. Our time schedule was a little thrown off for the reception, but The Highballs had no issue and made sure the night went smoothly. Their music is very well-rehearsed and they have a great, diverse playlist. Our guests had a great time dancing and rocking out and many of them commented how much they loved the band. I would absolutely recommend them for any reception in the Atlanta/Athens area!

The Highballs were absolutely amazing at our wedding. They were incredibly professional and very easy to work with. We had a consultation with Meredith over a month before the wedding and she helped us finalize the itinerary for our reception. The Highballs were also very accommodating to our special request to have some family members perform with them.

The music was exactly what we wanted and our guests had an incredible time. There was not a dull moment! Thank you so much to The Highballs for making our wedding reception a blast!

We would recommend The Highballs to any couple wanting to have a fun and lively wedding reception!!
