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

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.

The pictures MADE our wedding into the fantastic night that it was.

They sound amazing and people still have not stopped complimenting them a month later.

They put on an amazing performance and absolutely had everyone dancing all night long. They learned our first dance song and did an AMAZING job with it. Honestly, I was absolutely blown away!!

I found the pictures because another friend used them at her wedding years before...when I got engaged, this was a complete no-brainer. I knew they would do a great job, and they exceeded my expectations in every way!

Worth every penny! If you're thinking of getting a DJ to save money, don't! The Pictures is all anybody can talk about after my wedding. They say: "Best band ever!" "Do they travel?" etc! Also, compared to other bands, they are very reasonable. Great to work with, fun, easy-going, AMAZING musicians. Cannot say enough good things.

The Pictures band is amazing! I originally found them at a friends wedding last year when they performed at the driskill. Not only did they sound great, they kept everyone dancing all night long! A great indication of an awesome band!

Each of the members of the band are very talented and bring a unique element to their performance abilities.

For my wedding, it was great working with them prior, with Byron specifically and setting everything up. Our wedding coordinator finished out all the meetings and confirmations towards the end but she said they were a pleasure to work with just as I had experienced earlier on in the year.

Just as I had seen them perform at our friends wedding, they did just the same at ours - FANTASTIC! Everyone said it was the greatest wedding band they'd ever seen and as I expected - no one got off the dance floor! We boogied down all night long! Fun times and I highly recommend them!

There is literally no better wedding band out there than the Pictures band. At the end of our wedding, all our guests shouted "One more song!" to our band- we both had never heard of anyone chanting "one more song" at a wedding! All night long, everyone absolutely raved about this band. They are fantastic and also just really pleasant and professional guys to work with. How the lead singer manages to make his voice sound like Alicia Keys to Aretha Franklin to Brooks n Dunn is beyond me. Fantastic! One great line by one of our guests- "If I had my back turned, I assumed the music was being played off an ipod, it was that much exactly like the original song." Great, great, GREAT band. Totally made our reception!

The Pictures absolutely ROCK!!!

From the very beginning, Husband and I knew we wanted a live band that could cover all types of music (oldies, country, Sinatra, R&B, 80's, hip hop, top 40's, etc...). The Pictures can do them all and they sounded fantastic! They accommodated all of our requests and were great to work with!

They learned a song for us and performed it flawlessly. They even performed the same song twice (since the first time they sang it, I didn't get to dance with my husband to it). The slow song they chose for the last dance ("Wonderful Tonight") is one of my favorites, and it was such wonderful way to end the night.

They kept the dance floor packed all night long and all of our friends stayed until the very end. They definitely knew how to read the crowd and even the music they played during the breaks kept everybody on the dance floor as well. Many people (both older and younger crowd) have told us that our band was the best part of our wedding.

Chris was also kind enough to emcee for us and did a great job!

If you are looking for a wedding band, The Pictures is THE band to book. We are so glad we had them at our wedding, and I know for years to come that we (and our guests) will still remember them!
