The Pictures band from Austin would love to perform for your wedding. We have been around for aprox 20 years, so have a solid reliable reputation that you can count on to make your Wedding Reception the most memorable. The Pictures Band have performed around the world for the troops and for the President's Inaugural Ball. The band has also done weddings involving such notables as Lance Armstrong, Michael Dell, Roger Staubach, Jerry Jones, Anne Archer and the Dixie Chicks. The Pictures are confident that there is not another band out there with a better resume in this field. We are available to travel anywhere. The band will learn your first and second dances too.

We have four different sized bands to accommodate most venues and budgets. Our five piece band has drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and a male vocalist. Everyone sings in the band. Our six piece band adds either a sax or female vocalist. Our eight piece band adds a trumpet and sax and girl singer to the basic five piece band. The ten piece band adds a trombone and bari sax to the eight piece configuration. By the way, many times we are asked to add the female vocalist because of our demo CD having so many great female tunes. Our male singer actually did most the female songs on that CD, so it is not essential that the female be added.
We have drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and vocals in the five pc band. It is all the essential core members.
The quote is for a standard four hour event.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Read less

We have attended many weddings over the last several years. The Pictures are by far the best band we found. Very talented musicians, excellent vocals with broad range. They were a pleasure to work with and connected with our group. Cannot say enough good about this group.

The Pictures did a fabulous job at our wedding. Aside from being very easy to coordinate with leading up to the event (we had a planner, Ren Newey of 36th Street Events...but we had corresponded with the band ourselves as well), their performance this past Saturday night was *stellar*. I've lost track of the number of guests that walked up to me to comment about how fabulous the band was (or to ask who the band was / how we found them / giving various kudos).

They were very high energy (not spastic, but just upbeat and fired up in an infectious way) and really played every song superbly from start to finish. There was definitely no 'phoning it in' going on here; these guys (and gal) must be exhausted after a show like this. We looked at a number of bands that seemed great as well, but many of them specialized in a given type of music: exclusively Motown, Sinatra-type stuff, etc. The Pictures were incredibly versatile -- their catalog draws from old and new, and many styles. We would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone needing a versatile band with a very broad appeal that will be sure to infuse the event with excitement and great music.

I first heard The Pictures at my cousin's wedding in 2014. I not only enjoyed their entertainment, but my cousin recommended them without hesitation and could not stop raving about how much all of their guests loved them and how wonderful they were to work with. As soon as we found out they were available for our wedding date, we booked them without giving it a second thought! The Pictures absolutely made our wedding reception as fun as it was. The dance floor was full the entire night due to their expansive setlist and engaging performance. Byron was wonderful to work with as well! He was very quick to respond to any questions or requests that I had. He was so kind throughout the entire planning process and was always available to speak on the phone or via email to talk through any sort of logistics for the evening to ensure that the night was exactly what we wanted it to be. They even tailored their setlist for the evening to certain genres/categories per our request. We asked them to learn our favorite song and they did so without hesitation - and did a great job performing it! Since our wedding, we have heard from so many of our guests about how much they enjoyed The Pictures and that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. I would recommend The Pictures to anyone! If you're looking for a band that will get all of your guest on the dance floor, no matter what age (my grandma has not stopped talking about how great they are!), then look no further than The Pictures!

The Pictures played our wedding at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort this weekend and it was truly the icing on the cake! The entire time they performed no one left our dance floor! They put on a great show and are so fun to interact with that our guests are still raving about them. We went with all 10 guys (horns and all) and it brought everyone to their feet. Their website does not do them justice, they are THAT good!

Best Vendor of my Wedding!!

If I could have only selected one vendor for my wedding, this would have been it. The Pictures single-handledly made the evening an unforgettable party for everyone there! Extremely interactive, great at reading the crowd, and highly talented as well. Played an impressive set, ranging from former decades to current top hits. Byron (the liaison/band member that we dealt with during the planning) was so incredibly friendly, and also quite helpful when we asked for advice. Also, the band was more than happy to learn a new song for our first dance (and did a great job performing it!). Truly excellent. This, hands down, will be your best purchase if you select them for your event.

When we first got engaged, the first call we made was to The Pictures to see if they were available. We had seen them perform before and knew we wanted to have them for our wedding.

The Pictures Band is a professional band at a highly reasonable price. I honestly believe that the band could charge double for their talent and entertainment value. They do a wide variety of music, and they are very good at it! My grandparents loved the old-school, classic music for dinner and then my friends loved the upbeat music for dancing. This band is so very talented and really made the evening amazing. They even learned our first dance song on their own. It was not on their set list, but they took the time to learn the song and executed it flawlessly. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

The Pictures were outstanding! They got everyone to dance at our wedding: guests of all ages, guests who normally don't dance, etc. Repeatedly, the first thing people said after our wedding was, "Your wedding was wonderful, and the band was absolutely amazing!" I couldn't agree more. The band coordinator's responsiveness with planning before the wedding was great as well. I couldn't recommend The Pictures more, and I'm sure many of my friends will be using them in the future.

AMAZING and you should BOOK THEM!!! We hired The Pictures to play at our wedding this July and they were fantastic! During dinner they played classic music at a nice level. People could hear the music but were still able to talk. The first song that they played post dinner had everyone on the dance floor! Nobody left the dance floor until the lights went on at the end of the night. At one point I looked around and there were laser beams, from their light display, going around the room and smoke coming up from the stage, also provided by them, and I felt like I was at a concert! I am still so impressed with their level of skill and professionalism that I can hardly believe they were actually at my wedding. They were so good I can hardly believe it. My 90 year old grandma loved them, my 60 year old parents loved them and my 30 year old friends loved them! BOOK THEM!!!
