Before you read this: This is NOT a "wedding band." They are a swing band and will not play kitchy wedding music of any kind. Double Down stays true to their style.
Being a musician, I wanted live music at our wedding. We went to see them based on a friend's reccomendation and found them to be a high energy, high quality swing band. The price was fair and while a lot of people were intimidated by dancing "correctly" they all raved about the musicality of the group and would love to see/hear them again!
They will learn up to two requests (within their genre) if you give them enough time (unfortunately we did not) and will work with your likes and dislikes on their song list.
We loved having "untraditional" music at our wedding!
Double Down is an incredible band. They learned two songs for our reception and they were absolutely amazing, as were every other song they played. Professional, talented, reliable, accessible, fun and so nice. They set the tone for an incredible reception and we were so thankful. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!
Hiring Double Down was the first--and best--decision we made about the wedding. They are a fantastic group of musicians who really have fun with their craft, and get the audience going. Everytime someone mentions our wedding, they always talk about the fantastic band.
Double Down was so much fun! They made the wedding come alive and the price could not be beat. They learned two songs for our event and made our first dance a huge success.
