This band is awesome!!! Leading up to the date they attended meetings & returned e-mails promptly. We were so impressed by the attention to detail, from playing the Hora to their willingness to learn special requests, everything was spot-on! The music was incredible and they played a huge mix ranging from Rat Pack to newer pop and rock hits that everyone from my grandmother to my younger sister enjoyed. During the last song of the night the band members came out on the dance floor and rocked it while they were playing! Overall I'd give the STL Big Band two thumbs up and would highly recommend them to everyone!!

We had The St. Louis Big Band for our wedding reception and loved every minute of their performance. From Joe's excellent voice to the overall classy look everything was great. My guests were extremely impressed and everyone commented on how nice it was to see a band instead of a DJ. We spent alot of time on the dance floor and every song was better than the last!

Stop looking and pray that you book the St. Louis Big Band for your wedding. Ryan and his crew simply made our wedding. If you are looking for an incredible night, a classy feel, then look no further.

A few notes:
They have an incredibly broad diversity, all the standard big band classics but they will throw in some Black Eyed Peas if you want. They learned our first dance song. This sort of customized experience is rare to find.
They kept the dance floof filled. Ryan conducted the band perfectly, keeping the people out of their seats.
They provide an easy service. Easy. A couple of emails. One meeting. Then they did all the coordination with the hotel directly. They arrived early, stayed late, sounded great, brought their own PA. Easy.
They provide a diverse service. We wanted a band and a DJ. They did both. Band cut out at 10:30 and then DJ played our custom mix of dance tunes until midnight. All for the same price.
They are professional. Simply put, they will enhance, not detract from your wedding. No monologues, mike hogging, nothing but what you want.
They are an absolute steal. We shopped around and found other bands overpriced. One we saw was drunk. Not St. Louis Big Band. They are phenomenal. Pray that you can book them now.

We used the St. Louis Big Band's DJ services for our wedding in May. They were AMAZING. From being quick with email responses to meeting me in person whenever I had questions, it was so easy to work with Ryan, the director. You can really tell that he cares about making sure your wedding day is everything you really want it to be. And their prices are a STEAL. I can't say this enough, their quality of service during the planning process and throughout the wedding was such a breeze, and they don't charge anywhere near what competitors do.

The DJ for our wedding reception was Nic, and he was incredible. He was really nice and easy to communicate with, and he played a good variety of music. He never hogged the mic or talked too much, but he would still chime in when everyone was having a good time in order to get people pumped up and on the dance floor.

The only hiccup we had was with dinner, but it was nothing major. Nic dismissed the first few tables to head back to the buffet line for dinner, but then stopped making the announcements after a few minutes. Once we realized only half the tables had their food, we asked him about it and he picked it back up. Not a huge deal, and no one was too upset about it.

Seriously, if you're still needing a band and/or DJ for your wedding, look no further. Our wedding was in Hermann, MO, which is about an hour and half outside of Saint Louis. The boys had no problem making the trip out for our reception. BOOK THEM BEFORE THEY'RE GONE!
