We found the Highballs through a recommended vendor list from a venue we did not use, but we are so glad we found the Highballs! Meredith is so easy to work with and very responsive which isn't the case with wedding vendors. They help you craft a complete itinerary for your entire reception and then emcee the entire evening. It was such a relief knowing that they would help guide our guests through our reception and we could just enjoy ourselves. In addition to being organized and professional, they were just a blast. The dance floor at our wedding was packed the entire evening because the Highballs played great song after great song. We received so many compliments from guests on how much they enjoyed the band and how much fun they had. Even our 77 year old grandparents hit the dance floor for some songs. The Highballs made our wedding reception exactly what we were hoping for and much more. They were a slight splurge for us, but I would chose them again because of the superb service they provided and how much fun we all had.

We could not have been more pleased with The Highballs! They were professional, friendly, accommodating, and just all around FUN! Our guests (especially the Father of the Bride) still raves about how fantastic the band was. If you are considering a band, look no further. :)

When I first started the wedding planning process, I asked several people to name the most important part of the reception. The unanimous answer was "the music," because that determines how much fun people will have. The HIghballs were the first band I thought of. They are known for being entertaining and Meredith's voice is unbelievable. Thankfully, they were available. Meredith is so easy to work with and has a lot of knowledge and experience to help everything go smoothly. I felt so comfortable during the entire process. The band learned a song for our first dance which was amazing and made us feel so special. They made all of the announcements and kept the schedule without sacrificing the energy of the crowd. They have such a diverse playlist - it is unrivaled. They know how to make everyone happy! My goal was to have fun at my own wedding, and they definitely made that happen. It was better than I even imagined. I don't think I had an empty dance floor all night. Everyone was raving about the band and people are still talking about it and saying that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. They are the best band around and I would book them immediately!

I had high hopes for the Highballs after listening to them and reading reviews online and they still blew me out of the water on our wedding day. Meredith was awesome to work with from the get-go in terms of help with planning our day and how to make things run smoothly and there were extremely flexible around how we wanted to structure the night. MOST IMPORTANTLY, everyone at our wedding had a blast and was raving about the band afterwards. I'm biased, but it was the best party that I've ever been to and the Highballs were a huge part of that. They played an awesome set that they tweaked after garnering our feedback and they can really play!! I couldn't recommend these folks more!

Meredith and the guys were FABULOUS to work with! Super personable and easy to work with. They kept our guests on the dance floor the entire time! We HIGHLY recommend this band for any event, but they truly made our wedding reception the best time we could have imagined. We would give them more than 5 stars if we could!

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!
