I'm a big music guy and was pretty critical about choosing a band. These guys fullifilled beyond my expectations. Their price was extremely reasonable compared to other local bands and they were far better. They started as a 4 peice when originally booked and we later added a fiddler and 2 horn players (strongly recommended). We had about 3-4 songs that the band was kind enough to learn for us and they crushed them. Tod was a very cool and easy dude to work with and I could not recommend The Walkens more. Dance floor was always moving and our guests still rave about them to this day. Make sure they play their Led Zeppelin Medly!

We came from Milwaukee to have a destination wedding in Phoenix with a small group of family and friends (50 people). Having The Walkens play on our big night was the best decision we made all wedding next to the spare rib mac & cheese! Tod was great to work with throughout the entire planning process and very accommodating. They played the best set list and absolutely crushed it! There was music played throughout the night that was fun for everyone at the wedding, and far exceeded expectations. A truly memorable experience!

The Walkens were outstanding at our wedding! The dance floor was packed the entire time they played and everyone raved about the band. Tod is incredibly nice and easy to work with. I appreciated his laid back personality in the crazy wedding industry. The Walkens were hands down the best choice in vendors I made!

These guys are AWESOME! More people should include live music on their special day. Our guests of all ages truly enjoyed their music and they kept people on the dance floor all night. Our wedding was at a private residence and two of the neighbors came by to say the band sounded awesome from their back patios.

We immediately know they were our band. Tod and his band are amazing, hard working and talented musicians. Our wedding was at the Sanctuary so the venue was great, food amazing.....but everyone, and we mean EVERYONE is still talking about the band. We wanted a band that was personable and kept everyone on their feet dancing the whole night...and they were simply perfect. Would try and create an event just to have them play again!

We hired The Walkens for our wedding at Royal Palms on 9/27/13 and they were AMAZING!!!! Even before the big day, Todd was so kind and accommodating! He made great recommedations from an entertainment standpoint, which actually made the "transitions" of our evening - from intros to dinner to toasts to dinner - absolutely perfect! Everyone danced the entire night! They are a MUST-HAVE for any event! HIRE THESE GUYS... you will be so happy! =)

My daughter had seen The Walkens perform before and said that they are the band that she wants to have play at her wedding. She was absolutely right on. They were outstanding and the crowd loved their music. We had over 200 people attend the wedding which included all ages. People stayed and danced all the way up to the end of the evening. The mix of music was great.
Tod was very responsive. Whenever I emailed him with questions or requests he immediately responded. Their set up was quick and professional looking. Very friendly guys who interacted with the audience very well. They accomodated all of our requests to use their microphone for annoucements and the various toasts and statements that were made. They even played quiet music during dinner when it wasn't part of the contract and they also had nice music playing from their IPad when they weren't performing.
The band members were all outstanding musicians and the singing was great. I highly recommend these guys as they are professionals who are super talented.
