Shine is AMAZING! John Harris made the process so easy from the moment we contacted him through the wedding day. Every correspondence was prompt, they played all of our special requests, learned the song my husband danced to with his mother (which was not on their song list), and even allowed my father (who is a musician) to get up and sing a song. I have worked in Event Management for over 8 years planning multiple weddings and Shine was by far the best band to work with, they are extremely professional but very fun and have a great mix of songs for all guests to enjoy! Our guests were on the dance floor all night long and the set list could not have been better! I would highly recommend this band to any couple booking their wedding. Shine is the perfect choice!

Shine was amazing from the moment I contacted them for a price consultation. I knew live music was something I wanted at my wedding but wasn't sure where to start as I had never been to a wedding with a band before. But John made it easy from our first conversation! I would highly recommend Shine over any DJ - Especially if live music is your thing! John was very helpful with the planning and answered all of my e-mails quickly. The band learned a great (not so well known) song for my dance with my father and it turned out incredible. I am still receiving compliments from guests a few months later on the band. They made it easy to keep people on the dance floor - playing everything from the classic's to new pop and country. Book them now!!

Wow! I cannot say enough great things about Shine! John was a pleasure to work with before the wedding and extremely responsive, and they kept our guests dancing the entire night! Because of them, our wedding had an incredible energy to it, and the music they chose was perfect for our 20-something friends and our parents 50 to 60-something friends and family. They did a wonderful job learning our first dance song and also incorporating some of my favorites. This band was absolutely perfect!

The Shine Band created a magical, memorable evening for my sister's wedding. The music was absolutely magnificent. We could not have chosen better. We danced the night away. John, the band leader, was very personable and professional. Arrangements were made with ease.

I can't describe in words how special it was to have Shine play at our wedding and ceremony. The music and set list were perfect, and they kept people dancing throughout the whole night until we basically had to pull people off the dance floor because they loved the band so much! They made our special night better than we could have imagined.

Also, John was incredibly responsive and helpful. He made scheduling and organizing the event so simple and was a pleasure to have as our contact for the band. I will surely be referring Shine to all my friends and family who decide to get married in the future.

Thank you so much!!

I hired Shine for my daughter's wedding it was the best decision I could have made. They were AMAZING!!! John Harris was so easy to work with and accommodated all of my daughters and son-in-laws request. They played the guitar and flute during the ceremony and it was beautiful. They then played the sax and guitar during the cocktail hour which set the perfect atmosphere for people to mingle. But they really "Shined" during the reception. Their mix of music kept our guest, including myself, on the dance floor all night. My only complaint was that the night ended to soon!!

If you are thinking about hiring a DJ for your upcoming wedding because you can't afford a Band. Think Again!!! Shine is affordable and worth every penny. You will not be sorry.

These guys were AMAZING! John was so helpful with the ceremony music, very detail oriented and made sure prior to the event we were all on the same page! I danced my entire wedding, and never even stopped to kick off my shoes! They had the crowd dancing the whole time! They were the most reliable, but affordable and worth every penny and more!

I had the Shine Band for my wedding at the Lord Thompson Manor. They were AMAZING, everything from the guitar and flute at the ceremony to the reception were perfect! There wasn't one lull in dancing, everyone had a great time and the floor was always packed. They are so good that there were moments when I thought I was listening to the actual recording. We just had so much fun - and they really helped to set the mood! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band, I'm trying to find an excuse to throw a party so I can have them perform again! I'm so glad I went with a band instead of a DJ, it really created a fun lively atmosphere!

If it were possible, I would give Shine Band 10 stars, and i'm not kidding! Shine played at our wedding reception this past November and we could not have been happier with their music. My husband and I had a wedding song which isn't really a frequent play, and John was more than willing to accommodate us and play our special song. It really made our night to have it as our wedding song! :)

From start to finish, planning was an absolute breeze! John was extremely helpful in suggesting mother/son and father/daughter-in-law music. The mother/son pick turned out to be one of mom's favorite songs!! With only a few generic suggestions from us, the band played an amazing variety of music that suited us and every last guest. People we never expected to see dancing completely rocked the dance floor! I can honestly say that we left that night wondering what kind of party we can have next, just to have a reason to work with Shine Band again!! No DJ will ever compare to a live band, and Shine tops the charts!!! Thank you Shine for making our reception a night we will never forget!

Brides who are stressing over a wedding band - look no further!

I was so apprehensive when it came time to pick a wedding band. Having experienced nightmarish cover songs and horrible chicken dances, I was worried that my husband and I would be unable to find a band that fit our tastes and our budget at the same time. All of that was put to rest once we found Shine!

Shine absolutely made our wedding reception!

They were flexible with our song choices, were willing to play a few recorded tracks when it felt right, but more importantly they killed it live. We even had to clear a table out of the room to create a bigger dance floor! I don't think I stopped dancing all night. From pop to jazz standards, classic rock (this is where they... I have to say it... really shine) to contemporary, Shine truly keeps all of your guests dancing.

My personal favorites were their versions of "Dancing in the Dark" (I love Bruce Springsteen) and David Bowie's "Modern Love;" my grandmother was busting a move to Frank Sinatra and my 16-year old cousin was pumped when she heard "Call Me Maybe." Something for everyone!

John was so easy to get in touch with via email or phone and really responsive to all of our suggestions. He took all of our "do not play's" into account and I walked into the reception feeling confident that the music was going to be amazing!

If you're looking for a stress-free, creative planning experience, professional, non-invasive emceeing and music that sounds more "band" and less "wedding," Look no further. I seriously can't recommend Shine enough!
