INFO FOR BAND

Are you an agency or a band?
Band
What is the size of your band?
Medium (4-6 musicians)
What music genre does your band play?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Blues, Classic Rock, Country, Dance, Funk, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
We dress just like our promo pictures. The guys wear all black with matching royal blue ties, and our female singer wears a black dress.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes, although our website has many song clips as well as a performance video.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Our rate always includes learning two songs that are not on our set list. We can learn more than two for an additional fee.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
We usually arrive 2-3 hours before the guests arrive to complete set-up and do a thorough soundcheck.
How much space do you usually require?
It depends if we perform as a 5 or 6 piece band. We prefer at least a 16' X 16' performance area, but we are accommodating and can work within smaller space limitations.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do have a banner, but if the client prefers that we don't use it, that's no problem at all, just let us know beforehand.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We use all hi-tech LED lighting. Some we program with various sound activated chase scenes, and some on a solid color. We have a lighting controller to change colors/patterns instantaneously.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes, we'll gladly serve as Master of Ceremonies free of charge. We occasionally talk between songs to engage the crowd, but we know we are there to play music and keep people on the dance floor!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We are professionals who have many years of performing experience. We know how to read crowds and we know the songs that will always get people on the dance floor! Plus we are an extremely fun, high-energy, entertaining band, which is contagious. We have a great time performing and that positive energy livens up the entire room and gets people moving!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We usually do three 15 minute breaks for a 4 hour performance. We require that the client provide us with a meal since we are usually at the venue setting up several hours before dinner and we wouldn't get a chance to eat otherwise.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Yes, we always play recorded music on our breaks and will gladly play recorded music before we start (during cocktail hour or dinner) if you'd like.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have top-notch, professional fill-in players for each band member in case they are unable to attend (which would be extremely rare). The fill-in players have all rehearsed and performed with the band previously.
What is your overtime rate?
$300 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes, we charge for travel expenses, but how much we charge has several factors to consider: The distance/travel time, if we need to get lodging, if so, for how many nights?
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Our usual deposit is $500. If we need to reserve hotels for an out of town performance, the deposit may be higher. We require a deposit and signed agreement to secure a date.

Top Tier was simply incredible! JD was excellent in communicating with us prior to our wedding, and the band truly made our reception one for the books. Everyone, both young and old, stayed on the dance floor the entire night and had a blast! The music was great, the band was fun, and JD was professional and organized. We highly recommend them for any event!

Top Tier was great! We had them play at our Nashville, TN wedding. They sounded great and the guests enjoyed their upbeat personalities. Their music variety ranges from classic wedding songs like "We are family" and "Love Shack" to the present day hits like Hunter Haye's " Wanted" and Bruno Mar's "Treasure”. They even took time to learn two of my husband's and my favorites, "Happy" and " Beat of the Music". Guests got up and danced while our wedding party hit the stage with the band!

JD was great with corresponding throughout our engagement. He was on top of all our wedding details and MC'd the wedding with the timeline that we requested.

Top tier is a must HIRE!!

Top Tier was absolutely wonderful for my wedding! They kept the guest on the dance floor from the start of the reception through the very last song. I didn't want it to end! They even let a few guests who are in a band play their instruments on stage! I had never heard Top Tier in person before and we were blown away. I am still getting comments weeks later how fantastic they were. JD was very timely with his responses. Hopefully we'll see them again soon!! Thanks for a memorable evening.

Top Tier was absolutely fabulous!! JD was a pleasure to work with before the wedding. They have an extensive song list that covers music multiple decades, as well as many of today's top hits. By the end of the evening, everyone at the reception was on the dance floor! The whole band was so energetic and fun, and they even prompted a limbo contest under one of the guitars -- what a fun surprise! We received so many compliments from guests about how wonderful and engaging the band was. We knew that Top Tier would be a wonderful band, but they far exceeded our expectations and helped to make our wedding absolutely perfect. Thank you!!!

Top Tier completely blew us away at our wedding reception. We knew we were getting an amazing band for our wedding, but we had no idea that they would so absolutely fabulous. When planning our wedding, the most important component to us was our band. We were well aware that a band can make or break your reception. Top Tier actually brought our reception to the next level. Not only do they have amazing talent that can basically sing any song you could ever imagine, but they are engaging and have a way of making your reception the most memorable occasion for everyone involved. My husband and I were hoping for a fun-loving memorable night consisting of an amazing time with friends and family. Top Tier provided us a top notch night that is not only the most incredible memory for us, but our friends and family cannot stop talking about it.

We LOVED having Top Tier at our wedding reception. They did a perfect job of choosing music that was appropriate for the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, and kept the tone of the evening so welcoming & vibrant that folks were dancing during dinner. During the dancing portion of our reception, they interacted with our guests & let guests use a tambourine, cowbell, etc on the dance floor, as well as facilitated the limbo for our guests. Everyone had a great time dancing and asked us to extend the reception! The music itself was outstanding - we only watched their demo reel online & asked for some live clips but really did not feel as though we had watched the band live until the day of our wedding - and they wowed us at how great the music sounded. Even for the songs that we asked the band to learn, they sounded perfect. We searched high & low for local bands and ended up asking Top Tier to travel a few hours to our venue - and they were still comparable in price to local bands that were not nearly as good! JD was incredibly responsive & professional throughout the planning process. I could not recommend this band highly enough, and I'm so glad we decided to have them!

There is just no way to put into words how AMAZING this band is!! I can honestly say they made our wedding perfect. We chose them because we loved their song list and also because they were the best value around after tons of research on other bands. From the beginning, JD made me feel so confident that they were on top of every detail, which was important for us planning an out-of-state wedding! He was incredibly quick in responding to my very long emails! We had several special requests to honor a few birthdays and anniversaries for our friends and they coordinated those flawlessly. But far and away the best thing I can say about Top Tier is that I was on the dance floor for our entire wedding reception :) Every song was a hit and the next day at brunch our guests (old and young!) couldn't stop talking about the band and how well they interacted with the crowd. Many of our friends played the tambourine and the cowbell, and my husband actually sat in with the band and played the guitar and sang a song too! It was definitely the highlight of the night for him. If you're looking for a band who can keep the hits coming, make all of your guests want to dance, and create amazing memories for everyone, definitely choose Top Tier!

Top Tier is a great band. We are based in nyc so we had to select a band based on reviews and videos. We ended up picking Top Tier for our Florida wedding based on the stellar comments here and they exceeded expectations at our reception. They are extremely easy to work with. JD is very nice and accomodating and the band is very professional. The guests loved the music and Top Tier made sure everyone was having fun. We highly recommend the band for your wedding.

I mostly worked with JD when getting things planned. We were a big wedding on a budget, and these guys really worked with us to fit in there. We are a musical couple with talented friends, and they were more than willing to allow our friends to plug in and play our first dance. When the band started playing they were worth every penny. We had a lot of elderly family at the wedding (calm crowd) along with our young and wild friends (party crowd). The band was awesome at reading the crowd, and played age appropriate music (quiet and chill) during the beginning, and then really picked it up when the old folks left. They even got down and danced around with us while playing! These guys really feed off of energy on the dance floor. I HIGHLY recommend this group. They truly were an essential part of our reception.

JD was great to work with. He went above and beyond to make sure that all of our requests were handled, and responded quickly to my many emails leading up to the day. The band was amazing and so much fun! They played requests, and let the rowdy groomsmen sing along and play the tambourine.

JD was great to work with. He went above and beyond to make sure that all of our requests were handled, and responded quickly to my many emails leading up to the day. The band was amazing and so much fun! They played requests, and let the rowdy groomsmen sing along and play the tambourine.

Top Tier was fun and easy to work with! Their answer to every question we had was simply yes! Our guest loved the band and thoroughly enjoyed how the band continued to include us (the bride and groom) in their performance on and off stage. For the price, quality and service, I would recommend Top Tier over and over again!

Top Tier was fantastic. From the cocktail hour music to the very last song, the music was great. They learned a few new songs for us and sang them beautifully. Everyone dance all night and was sad to see them leave. That's when you know it' a great band!! Thank you Top Tier!

Top Tier was wonderful! They were extremely accommodating & friendly. Our guests loved them & everyone enjoyed listening to them & dancing! We loved the "Top Tier Cheers", too! Never seen a base guitar used as a limbo stick, but they did it & it was great! They even let me (the bride) get on stage & play along with them! We highly recommend Top Tier if you are looking for a fun & entertaining band for any occasion!

Top Tier was absolutely amazing! They were great to work with and always promptly replied to my emails - even when I sent them in the middle of the night! They played every song I wanted to hear, there was not a single one I didn't want to dance to! They really got the crowd into it and it made for an amazing reception. I'm still getting compliments about the band and how amazing they were.

Top tier was a delight to work with. Booking was super easy and staying in touch with them via prime source was just as convienient. They were able to learn several signs for us to make our day special but also have an extensive play list to keep everyone on the dance floor. I had no idea how much fun our wedding was going to be and I think we have top tier to thank! Highly recommended!

Top Tier was so great! JD was the best person to work with, he was truly a breath of fresh air for me when it came to my wedding vendors. He really made me feel like my wedding reception was important to him, and not just another gig. His goal was to make my reception run smoothly and make sure my husband and I and all of our guests had an awesome time, and he did both of those things. The band was so much fun! They interacted with the crowd, and accommodated all of my special requets. Such a great decision!

Top Tier was the band we hired for our wedding at the Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville, TN. They were fantastic and we had so much fun dancing to their music! They kept us all dancing to a variety of music and were immensely enjoyed by all ages! Amy, the lead singer, was wonderful! She interacted with the crowd and had everyone involved. We had many compliments from our guests on behalf of the band. Top Tier is definitely a wonderful choice for a wedding band. They are very organized, respond to emails quickly, have a day of information sheet, so there aren't any surprises. They arrived on time, did a souind check before the guests arrived and were ready to announce the bridal party and rock the night away with all of us after the ceremony.

We are from Ohio and when we were looking for a band for our daughter's wedding in Nashville, we were totally at a loss. So I hired Top Tier totally based on recommendations from other brides- and wow were they right! Top Tier far exceeded any expectations I could have possibly had. They had the crowd on the dance floor from the very first song until the very last! They came unto the floor and interacted with the crowd, and they were the nicest people you could ever have asked for. Their professionalism was over the top. I would hire them for another event without even thinking twice! They absolutely made the reception one people won't forget soon. I can't even tell you how many people came to us during and after the reception to tell us that this was the best band they had ever heard. If anyone is looking for a wonderful dance band for any event that is made up of the nicest people ever, don't even give it any other thought- just book Top Tier. We are so thankful we did!!!BTW, we paid extra to have the saxophone player, and very glad we did. Alina Hurley Ironton, Ohio

Top Tier was absolutely amazing throughout the entire planning and wedding process! They kept my dance floor full the entire night! They were quick to respond to emails and very accomodating with anything I needed. They even sent encouraging words the days before the wedding. I had not heard of them from anyone but just found them online so it was a gamble to book them but man did it pay off! I was able to tell them the songs I preferred them play and they gave an amazing party! I have had several guests ask for their information to book them for their own parties/ weddings. They also did a great job learning my first dance songs. They had a fantastic stage presence, a perfect mix of performers but still kept it professional and it did not feel like they were putting on a concert- just keeping everyone super happy! They are very talented performers!

This is the band! Professional, easy to communicate with, and most importantly a fantastic sound with a great song selection. Top Tier knew the songs to play and created a fun, happy, everybody dance mood! Everyone at the event remarked about what a great band they were. By the end of the evening, they had become part of our family of friends. They truly love what they do, and the result creates an atmosphere where everyone has a great time, gets up and dances, and becomes part of the celebration! Hiring them was the easiest part of the wedding plans, hire them and forget it because they are dependable and take care of business. Super people, super music, and great entertainers!

JD and Top Tier band were FABULOUS! They absolutely made our wedding reception. We chose them (the 5 piece version) basically sight unseen because they were within our budget and they have an extensive and diverse catalogue of songs. Little did we know we would get more than we paid for in the best way possible. Not only did they have such great energy and level of performance, but they also went above and beyond for us to make sure our wedding truly felt like it was our party: they learned a new song for us, tailored one of their existing songs to fit our desires, and they even let some of our friends get up to sing our first dance. Our guests had an absolute blast, and so did we. I cannot say enough good things about them. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to have a rock star band without needing to sell an organ to pay for it. They are the best.

Thank you, JD and Top Tier! Thank you for making our wedding reception fun and memorable.

Top Tier was absolutely fantastic and our crowd danced the whole night. They even brought out a limbo!

They were flexible with songs we wanted - we copied their playlist and highlighted the songs that we'd like to be played and we gave them an ipod with songs to play during breaks. We loved the music and our parents' friends loved the goldie oldies.

The only thing I would make sure to do would be to make sure to coordinate to have some type of music playing in the background when the bridal party was introduced.
