My husband and I were married this past weekend and chose Shine as our wedding band. We seriously have NOT stopped getting compliments from guests about how awesome the music was. From the very first email to the day of the ceremony, John was extremely responsive and easy to talk to. The ceremony music was beautiful, and the reception was absolutely awesome- the dance floor was completely packed the entire night- they sure knew how to read a crowd! I can't overstate how happy we are that we went with Shine, and I would highly recommend this band to anyone! Thank you so much, Shine, for making our day so awesome!

John and the Shine Band were perfect from start to finish. John was so easy to work with and provided great feedback on all of our plans. On the night of our wedding, they did a fantastic job and sounded just like the recordings that they have online. I know some brides like to see a band perform before picking but honestly, they provided so many samples online and the other reviews were so great that I didn't think it was necessary and I am glad that I went with that instinct. There are so many things to worry about when planning a wedding that the band sounding great shouldn't be one of them - and with the Shine Band, no worry is necessary. They did a seriously great job.

John is really easy to work with and very thorough. The Shine Band served as a great MC and made the transitions in the evening seamless. We live in DC and weren't able to hear the band live before our reception night-- it turned out to not matter. The Shine Band sounded fantastic! We are still getting compliments on how great the band was that evening. They made every effort to accommodate our requests and I felt like John offered a lot of valuable advice on timing and music selection. We mixed eastern and western traditions and cultures at our reception and the Shine Band was very flexible with our requests. In sum, this is a great band at a really reasonable rate. We are thoroughly satisfied-- both with the quality of music and showmanship as well as with the customer service and responsiveness. A wedding can be stressful but choosing a band shouldn't be at all. The Shine Band knows this and really excels at being top notch entertainment.

We picked the Shine Band for our wedding after hearing them at a wedding we attended, and we're so glad we did. John was super easy to work with in the stressful pre-wedding period; he did a great job working with us to get lists of important songs and to better understand the vibe we wanted for our wedding. On the day of, the band was more or less perfect. They were the model of professionalism in person - On time, friendly, and on point throughout the day. The dance floor was packed all night long, and we received lots of compliments from both people who loved the music, and people who were thankful for a wedding band that could strike the right balance between a rocking party and people still being able to hear each other.

John and his band are incredible! They were so kind from the first day we reached out to them. We had the opportunity to go and see the band play locally before our wedding and it was like a mini reception to get us excited for the big day! They were to invested in their music and the crowd, we knew we had picked the right band. They came over and met my family and our friends and made sure to play a few of our favorites that they would be playing at our wedding.

Before the reception John and I had a few phone calls back and fourth for planning and he was not only helpful in helping me decide on music but the general timeline of the evening. I didn't have a wedding planner, so hearing his experiences from past weddings helped make our night perfect!

Our family and friends were glued to the dance floor the entire night. I wish it could have never ended!! John and the Shine Band will be the only band you ever hire for an event again!

The best decision we made was having The Shine Band play at our wedding at the Scituate Harbor Yacht Club on May 14, 2016. They were absolutely fabulous! We HIGHLY recommend them! John was so accommodating to us from the first email we sent to the day of the wedding. So many guests commented to us how much fun they had dancing. Even friends and family who don't like to dance were out on the dance floor with us. We are so happy we chose to have a live band. The Shine Band really made our wedding a huge hit. Thank you again for making our day so memorable!!

After months of research, my husband and I independently arrived at choosing the Shine Band for our wedding ceremony and reception music. We both wanted a band that could capture the attention of ALL our guests, a mix of young adults in their 20's and older adults from our parents' generation. Shine really shines with their musical talent and YEARS of experience in the wedding industry. Leading up to the wedding day, we worked mainly with John Harris from the band, and he's PHENOMENAL. He's the most responsive vendor I've ever worked with, and he provided us with very useful tips and feedback on our wedding timeline. He was also very patient and went through many edits of our wedding timeline with us to refine our vision, which was incorporating some my Korean cultural details into the ceremony-- Shine's music was so universal and accessible that they even got my grandmother (in her 80's) visiting from Korea to get up and dance with us! Our dance floor was so packed the entire night that we felt bad for not having a larger dance floor! If you want a band that is pleasant and easy to work with, and is skilled at reading your guests and playing versatile music, the Shine Band is IT!
