Let's party like they do down in New Orleans! "Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulers!" or "Let The Good Times Roll!" with Zydeco-a-Go-Go, the Mid-Atlantic's #1 Zydeco Band.

We are so happy we chose Zydeco-a-Go-Go to be our wedding band. They were fun, played all of our requests, and had everyone dancing the whole night! They extended their set when we asked, and three of the guys also played our ceremony. They are so talented and we had the best time with them. Highly recommended!

I've been a fan of Zydeco-a-go-go for years. When my friend asked me to be his best man for his wedding and reception at the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia I told him I had just the band for him. He was reluctant at first, but has thanked me ever since for convincing him to just trust me. Needless to say when I got married they were my first choice and had to twist my wife's arm a little because zydeco music is just not everyone's first choice when they think of wedding music. But as far as I'm concerned Zydeco-a-go-go is the ONLY choice for wedding music. Pete was phenominal with the music selection, they learned some songs we requested, they played/sang "over the rainbow" while my wife walked down the isle which still chokes me up a bit (and I'm actually far from a wimpy guy), they couldn't have been more appropriate background music during dinner and when it was time to bring the house down they ROCKED! If you are considering having zydeco music at a wedding keep in mind it's perfect for a group of people of all ages, colors, religions, etc... There is nothing specific which one group responds to more than other which you might have with other genres. EVERYONE responds to it and I guarentee it is IMPOSSIBLE to sit still while its playing. It's just something everyone will enjoy. Not to metion the fact Pete Gumbo and Zydeco-a-go-go are the best at what they do. I live in New Orleans now, orginally from Philadelphia, and I still tell people the zydeco music here is fine, but I still have to go to Philadelphia for the best zydeco music!

Keep in mind too that zydeco, like most music, is best appreciated live. It is incredibly interactive. Do NOT make your judgement based entirely on a CD or something you've heard on the radio. I very rarely listen to zydeco in the car or at home, but never miss an opportunity to see these guys live.

We had a wedding in Maine which the band traveled to from Philadelphia which made them a little more expensive than our local choices, but they still werent the most expensive. They were by far the best value of any of the choices we considered!

If you are reading this then I congratulate you because you are well on your way to making the best/easiest decision of your wedding process. You won't go wrong with these guys! Best of luck and feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions at deberly@deberlyllc.com. I will be happy to help with your decision any way I can.

Good luck and Laissez les bon temps rouler!
(Let the good times roll!)

PS Thanks again to Pete for such a great/memorable experience!!!! I hope this isnt laying it on too thick, but you were just such an integral part of the whole experience! This review is a very small token of my appreciation of you guys.

My wife and I met in New Orleans, and music has always been very special to our relationship. On top of that, I am a musician myself, and I am very demanding when it comes to the level of talent that it takes to impress me. Needless to say, the band was a very important decision for us. These guys delivered 150%. We asked them to play a lot of New Orleans R&B and funk which they did an excellent job with (they even learned a few songs), but it was the zydeco that really tore the roof off the place. Before the wedding, I was a little concerned that people not familiar with zydeco wouldn't really like it, but once that rhythm section got going, everyone hit the dance floor. My wife and I have had countless friends and family tell us that our wedding was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, and Zydeco-a-go-go deserves most of the credit for that!

These guys were a tad pricier than most, but worth every penny. Great fun and one of the highlights of our wedding day. They put on a great show -- and I literally still listen to their music on my iPod -- not something you can say for most wedding bands. We had great feedback from our guests as well. Pete Gumbo is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Zydeco-a-Go-Go was absolutely fantastic. They made our wedding day. They are worth every penny as they created a fun and lively atmosphere. At several points in the night they had ALL 200 guests on the dance floor - no easy feat. I have recommended and will continue to recommend them to every bride and groom. For a guaranteed good time, and a band that is in a different league from your average wedding music, you can't go wrong with Zydeco-a-Go-Go. You and your guests will love them!

Zydeco A-go-go was absolutely FANTASTIC when they performed at my wedding in September 2007. I work in the music business and consider myself a bit of a "music snob", Zydeco A-go-go combined both the utmost of musicality and also shear entertainment with perfect taste. Their combination of Zydeco, 50s rock & roll and Motown kept people on the dance floor from start to finish. I still consistently hear 2 years after my wedding that I had "the best wedding band ever".

My husband and I were married on February 3, 2001. 9 years later...what is the one thing that people (including myself and my husband) are still talking about? THE BAND! Zydeco-a-Go-Go was simply FANTASTIC! I can not rave about them enough!! We wanted a band that was fun, relaxed and a bit "different" than your typical wedding band. Zydeco-a-Go-Go DELIVERED! We were married in NYC and Pete and the entire band put every nerve I had at ease. Zydeco-a-Go-Go conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism. They arrived way in advance, accomodated every request we had (from start to finish), were open to all our ideas and even had one of our friends get up and do an improptu song with them. In the next few months, my husband and I, are planning on making a trip to PA to see them play and relive all the fabulous moments of our wedding. We're also hoping to have a 10 year anniversary party. If this happens, Zydeco-a-Go-Go will be there to play. We wouldn't have it any other way!!!!!!!! I can guarentee you, Zydeco-a-Go-GO will make your day a day that you will never forget and will talk about for years to come!

Thanks again Pete and gang! Jim and I (and all our family and friends) really do still talk about you guys all the time. Of course I'm a bit biased, however, I've not been to any other wedding in the past 9 years that has had a band as great as you guys. I've had friends of mine say the same thing to me too! Thanks so much!!!! :) Tenley
