On any given night you can find them playing "Callin Baton Rouge" and moving right on to "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and then the most recent Nickelback hit. Not too long after that it's a five song non-stop dance marathon that includes "Girls Just wanna Have Fun", "Walk Like an Egyptian", Poker Face" (Did we mention that there aren't any girls in the band?), Hot, Hot, Hot, & Low. Closing the night one can expect to hear Zac Brown, AC/DC & Sir Mix-A-Lot.... Or something completely different...

No genre is off limits, No era is untouched, No Hit is out of reach

Their songlist is one of the most varied in the business and people love it. If you walked in off the street and heard them for the first time playing just one Country, Rock or Dance hit, you could easily assume that they were born to play that kind of music and then get completely thrown when they play something so completely different.

Chalk it up to Genius or simply ADD, you never know exactly what you're going to hear when you go to a Rude Band show.

The Rude Band plays an almost non-stop four hour show, with only one break. By the end of the night you may be wondering if you should start working out.

For 21 years, The Rude Band has been packing bars, ballrooms, street dances, colleges & fairs. With concert quality sound & lighting production, it's hard to believe that they can be that good.

The Rude Band is by far the best choice we could have made for our wedding. We didn't want to go the traditional route of getting a DJ and they were the perfect solution. Their variety of songs had everyone dancing. They were very flexible and professional. I would highly recommend them for any venue

We booked The Rude Band for our wedding, and we are SO happy that we did! The dance floor was literally packed after the first song, and stayed that way for all 5 hours. I've had 2 of my engaged friends already ask for the band's contact info. Multiple people told me that night that The Rude Band was the best band they've ever heard. Best wedding planning decision we made by far!

Thank you so very much for playing such a great show at our wedding.

I have been a huge fan of The Rude Band for quite some years so I thought of no other band when choosing one for our wedding. The band not only played at our wedding but learned how to play our wedding song as well as a song I dedicated to my husband. Garrett was also the one who married us which was so special as he, with the help of his wife, wrote the entire ceremony. I couldn't say enough great things about this group of guys! If fun and entertainment is what you are looking for then look no further than The Rude Band!

We LOVED having the Rude Band play at our wedding! It was a splurge for us to have them, but they were worth every penny! I truly feel that the music at an event sets the atmosphere for the evening and we had the most positive, fun, and loving energy possible at our reception. All of the guys are so kind and helpful as well. I'd hire the Rude Band again in a heartbeat if I had an event for them to perform at.

I would have liked to have some better communication with you in the weeks prior to the event. I emailed someone about introducing us as we entered the reception, and then at the reception was told you wouldn't do that after we waited for 20 ish minutes. This wouldn't have been a problem, I just would have liked to know before hand.

The band was fantastic, production was spot on. Everybody liked the band. We had to remind the band about the first dance/father daughter dance (then they had to download it), but other than that everything went smoothly. Would not have minded a couple more slow dances right away so more people would have gotten on the dance floor, then ease into more upbeat music. Overall I would recommend the Rude Band to others.
