Undercover Live Entertainment
The band made the night! We had fabulous food from our caterer then moved on to a fun night filled with great music and dancing. Our guests left wanting more! George was always quick to respond to an communication from me, we had a tight venue which didn't give them as much room as they normally have but they made it work with no complaints! Absolutely wonderful experience with them!
our guests kept telling us how much they loved the band. the band worked with us and our song choices - we were specific on the songs we wanted included from their song list. thank you for giving us great music to dance to on our special day.
Having a band was the highest priority for my husband and me. When we heard Undercover perform at the Sandpiper in Laguna, we were hooked and knew they were THE one!
Undercover is the epitome of quality and energy. Their covers of all genres are spot on and they really kept the dance floor full all night long. We are still getting compliments for having them. To top it off, my husband and I just got our wedding video and after watching/re-living the day, my husband said, "Maybe we should plan an anniversary party just so we can book them again!"
George at Undercover Live was extremely helpful in addressing our specific requests. We were able to order advanced recordings of our first dance songs to practice with and he was able to deliver them to us within one week. His musicians (the trio for our ceremony and the pianist/singer for our reception) learned our music and performed flawlessly. We were very happy with the MC service provided by the pianist/singer, he was professional and classy - not at all what you'd think of when you think of a "wedding singer". George came to our wedding to ensure that everything went smoothly. Even my request for the trio to "change the sound" of my processional song when I began to walk was executed to perfection, despite more specific or even musically relevant instructions. George understood and was very thorough in getting all the information he needed to make the music perfect throughout our wedding. He was also very patient in working with us to find the right pianist/singer for us and did just that. I would definitely recommend Undercover Live!
THIS BAND WAS GREAT! No hesitations from the moment we asked them to play for our wedding. We saw them play for our friends wedding and then confidently booked them for ours. They were very professional and everything ran SO SMOOTHLY! I highly recommend them :) They're a lot of fun and can really get people into dancing!
George and Undercover provided music and lighting for my wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic. Our wedding was mostly younger folks that really wanted to dance, and every single one of them came up to me either during or after the reception and had the same comment: "this is the best band I've ever heard at a wedding!" Undercover was simply spectacular from the very beginning -- planning was a breeze with them; they were incredibly flexible. Carla as MC brought a ton of energy to the event. And in terms of the quality of their music, I can't say enough good things -- they played some older stuff but mostly modern hits (which is what I wanted), and they did it perfectly. These guys made my wedding truly magical and memorable -- I can't recommend them highly enough. Best dollars I spent on my wedding, by far.
PS -- George also hooked us up with DJ Chad for our afterparty. He was awesome -- crazy-good dance music with awesome lighting effects. Highly recommend him as well.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! Hiring Undercover Live to play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We spent a lot of time searching for the right band. Undercover was the perfect choice. Not only did they sound awesome, but they dressed professionally, interacted with guests, and kept the party going!
Carla was the lead singer/MC and did a wonderful job. They played the perfect mix of classics, new hits, fast songs, and slow songs. We had so many compliments on them.
I can't say enought great things about them.
HIRE THEM. you will not regret it!! :)
We are so happy to have selected Undercover Live for our wedding! The band was amazing. We received so many compliments from all of our guests! Thank you for a great night!
George and crew did an excellent job! Our most professional vendor, very timely on all responses, extremely professional in all dealings..which cannot be said about other vendors... showed up on time, set up quickly, flexible on song choices and excellent performers. A band can make or break a wedding...and Undercover Live Entertainment made our wedding a 10! Singer did an excellent job in her MC role and supplied a top rate performance. Worth every penny of cost to have them. Cannot recommend them more highly...they will not disappoint. Best wishes to the band in the future, we would use them again any time.
Undercover Live was spectacular! Highly recommended!!!
When people ask what our favorite decision for our wedding was we both answer UNDERCOVER LIVE! They literally rocked the house and made the evening beyond special. Working with George was great! He is very responsive and professional and made us feel completely comfortable leading up to our special day. On the day of our wedding the entire band was great - they had everything set up on time, they looked great and they did a fabulous job of both music and emceeing the event! The dance floor was packed the entire evening with every age group as Undercover Live played an amazing mix of oldies, eighties, and current music! Our guests are still raving about what a great time they had and several of our guests insisted that we send them the band's info after the wedding!
We would HIGHLY recommend Undercover Live! for any...
Undercover Live is a phenonenal group and really made our wedding a step above others we have been to. We are still getting people asking us everyday who they were and telling us how much fun it was because of the quality of the music and band. George was very professional in helping us plan our big day's soundtrack and a great showman (guitar solo amongst our crowd during Livin on a Prayer is a memory that still stands out in my mind) and Carla was absolutely a phenomenal performer. I honestly have not one complaint and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Undercover Live for making our wedding an amazing party!

We were thrilled with the band's performance at the reception. The band was one of favorite aspects from the entire wedding. We loved the way Carla communicated with us throughout the reception. We felt as if we had known her for several years due to her warm and friendly personality. The set list was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Nearly every wedding guest I spoke to after the wedding could not stop raving about how amazing the band was. We are from New Orleans and live music is very important to many of us, so for those people to say such great things about the band really shows me that Undercover was the best choice. Even though our event was on the smaller side (100 guests), the reception never lagged. The dance floor was filled from beginning to end and this was surely due to how great the band was. The Second Line was great as well. We honestly couldn't have had a better experience with Undercover!
The ceremony musicians were good and what we were looking for, but there was one problem. The pre-ceremony music never happened. We were under the impression that they would play for 30 minutes before the ceremony began and they did not play at all. Our guests sat in silence until the actual ceremony began. I'm not sure why this happened, but it could have been the wedding coordinator's fault. Regardless, this didn't deter from how great the day was and I would still highly recommend people to book through Undercover for their ceremony musicians. It was easy on us and that was important. Also, many of our guests loved the cocktail hour music (accordion). I didn't get to hear him play as I was taking pictures, but it sounded like it was a hit.
George and Undercover Live were the best decision we made (besides choosing to marry each other)! They worked with my now in-laws to surprise me and my husband with a flash mob! Their performance never lagged in intensity and everyone was up on their feet. I couldnt have asked for anything better, thank you so much!
This is the best band that I have heard at a wedding. They kept the party going with great music. Their choice of songs was excellent. Almost the entire room was up and dancing most of the evening. I attribute the success of the evening largely to them.
We did a surprise flash mob for the bride and groom. The band was so helpful and cooperative in pulling it off. Carla, the lead singer, started it off for us. The guests loved it!
Undercover's performance at our wedding couldn't have been better. We continue to get compliments on how good our band choice was. They played a wide range of songs and were open to our preference. These guys rock (and roll). Highly recommend them.
Words can not describe how impressed my husband, myself and our guests were with Undercover Live. Even before the wedding, they had great communication and were very flexible/accomodating to our requests. At our reception, they put on an amazing show and kept our audience on the dance floor from start to finish! From announcing the wedding party to closing the night with a rendition of our first dance song (which they learned just for us!), they kept the energy going all night! We received so many compliments and our guests were raving about them for weeks to come. They were not only incredibly talented but very helpful when we had a problem with another vendor. I highly recommend Undercover Live to any bride and groom to be... hiring them was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding!
I wanted to email you to let you know how much we enjoyed Undercover! So many people have commented to us about how much fun they had at our wedding and how amazing the band was.
You all sounded sharp all night and the band was tight in every set. All vocalists did an amazing job,we loved it. You kept the dance floor packed the whole time and played a great set of songs that made us really enjoy ourselves and make our wedding such a special event. Thank you for all of your work and making our wedding as amazing as it was. We hope you had as much fun as we did.
Thanks again, we will certainly keep Undercover in mind for any future events and all recommendations to our friends.
My husband Bryan and I recently got married and really wanted a top notch band. The full retail rate was tough to deal with most bands and George at Undercover Live really helped us on the price. The band was really amazing.
We had a pretty awesome cover band the night before at our wedding so we were nervous that we either over paid for the wedding or the band wouldn't be as good -- that was all put to rest as soon as they played our first dance song. They learned a difficult Annie Sellick bi-lingual jazz version of Nature Boy that was absolutely flawless.
From there, they made the party. We did a 7 piece band which is so important because you need the horns. 9 would be better if you can afford it. The entire team was so professional and accommodating and the music and showmanship was out of this world.
Don't get a DJ! :)
You guys rock!
We just wanted to send you guys a quick email to say THANK YOU for doing such an amazing job at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were such a big hit -- every song we requested from you guys was done perfectly! We couldn't have asked for more and we're so happy we found you guys! As you could probably tell, we had an awesome time, and got so many comments from our friends about how much fun they had and how hard they danced! I still have blisters on my feet!!
Please forward this on to all band members -- Carla especially, she was an amazing emcee!
Our daughter was married on July 9th,2011 and she had decided months before her wedding that a LIVE band was a must.Celeste and Damian really wanted a fun dance party for all their friends that were attending, mostly from out of state and newly graduated college students.However, we also had a variety of age groups attending, from very young nieces and nephews to elderly Italian aunts, uncles, and Grandparents. We wanted "TOP 40" to Frank Sinatra....well, Undercover was fabulous! They were professional, on time, were dressed like movie stars, elegant, engaging, and took over our wedding reception with ease. My husband and I, along with the bride and groom, and parents of the groom, all relaxed and enjoyed every minute of the evening. Our reception was from 4 pm until 11 pm and Undercover was there until 11 pm!! All the young guys fell "head over heels" with the lead singer,Carla. She was soooo much fun and had such charisma as she introduced the 11 Bridesmaids and Groomsmen and bride and groom. Needless to say, she followed the timeline that our wedding planner drew up and we were thrilled. As Mother of the bride,I can highly recommend this wonderful group. You will not be disappointed and they are so much classier and engaging versus a D.J. with karaoke. They are worth every penny!
Undercover Live was amazing from planning to the last dance. When I was deciding between bands, George told me that they were the best band for the price - and I think he proved they are the best band at any price. They learned songs, were flexible about timing, set-up, and stage structure, and kept people dancing all night. The best pictures from my wedding are people going crazy on the dance floor with Undercover Live behind them smiling and doing their thing. Thank you!!
Could not have been happier. Everyone could not stop talking about how fun the wedding was and how great the band sounded. I could not possibly recommend them highly enough.
Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE danced thanks to the awesome entertainment provided by Undercover. I mean, even the 90 year old grandma was out there swaying to the music! Book them now!
My Name Is Brian Stevens. My wife and I were married in March of 2011. Our wedding was a wounderful day for us and our family and friends. We spent months planning and prepping for this day. The one thing that was the most important to us was the entertainment, since this is usually the only thing guest really remember about a wedding. Food and ice sculptures are soon forgotten but a great entertaining band will alway be remembered even years later.That is why we chose UNDERCOVER for our band. After seeing them perform at a bar in our home town we knew they were going to be the hit of our wedding. George and Carla and the rest of the band are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They were willing to go beyond all my expectations to make our day special. They would call us all the time to help us pick out the perfect music for all the dances and gave their suggestions on what works best, since this is a stressful time this was really appreciated sometimes you dont know all the options or what will work. The UNDERCOVER band took care of everything. George was even willing to play his guitar for us while my beautiful bride walked down the isle. They even introduced our wedding party on the sound system and a one point let my father-in law join them on stage for a few songs. They were very open to letting us have our special day the way we wanted it. Any song that we wanted them to play they had no problem accomidating our likes and needs. We have only been married a few months but almost everyday i get a comment about the band that we had at our wedding. I have had many people ask me for my band info so they can you UNDERCOVER at their wedding. This band is beyond amazing, friendly, professional, and just a real down to earth group who til this day i still keep in contact with and occasionally go see when they are at a local bar. If you want a band that will give you a great memory of your special day with that personal touch that your are striving for, look no further. UNDERCOVER will definitally be playing at my anniversary.
Me and my family love to dance so to have a good band was a must! I loved their music they played many many songs i love and i didnt even have to tell them what to play.
This band really went above and beyond. We were scared at first about having a live band, but our fear was pointless. The dancefloor was NEVER empty, and we had the best time. I could not have imagined anything better for our special day. We both highly recommend their services and swear to you that they are extremely fantastic. Thanks UNDERCOVER you guys made our wedding at the Fox Theater one that we will remember and cherish forever. In fact, the one thing all of our guests keep talking about is the music! We love you guys. Jennell and David
Undercover was so much fun at our Wedding this past weekend! The dance floor was packed the entire time they played! All of the guests had a blast and many requested band info. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a fun and entertaining band for their reception.
Just book the band already. You're not going to find a better band to play your wedding ANYWHERE around southern California, maybe even the US. If you can book them, the Undercover band is an absolute steal. For the price of a DJ You can have a real live band with professional entertainers to add class and personality to your reception, and I promise you, unless something is seriously wrong with your wedding guests Undercover will rock the mic and keep the dance floor packed. Everyone young and old had a blast at our wedding, and almost every single guest without exception remarked about how awesome the band was. Just book the band already, you will congratulate yourself later for making such a smart decision, Undercover will make your wedding great.

It has been a few weeks since our wedding and we still have people telling us that we had the most amazing band. They cater to all age groups by playing all types of music; and they had no problem playing all of the songs that we requested. We could not have been happier. I don't think that there was one time throughout the whole reception that the dance floor was not filled. We highly recommend them! They were very professional and went above and beyond. Thank you Undercover! You truly made our wedding reception unforgettable. We will definitely hire you for our next event!
Meg and Clif
Thank you for everything!!!! We can't imagine our wedding without you- you did such an amazing job entertaining our guests. We loved every minute!! We have been fortunate to have been invited to several weddings and never once have we have seen a wedding start and end with sooo much energy! You guys kept the crowd going until the last song and we (and our guests) are still talking about the fact the wedding ended with everyone chanting "ONE MORE SONG." Thank you for everything! You truly exceeded our expectations!
My wife and I are so happy with the entertainment Undercover provided at our wedding! From the beginning they were extremely easy to work with. They had a wide range of music to choose from and they were very experienced and knowledgeable when it came to planning a reception timeline that would work with what we wanted. Carla did a great job as the MC of our 150-person reception. She knew just what to say and when to say it. She kept the party flowing effortlessly, on schedule, and brought a lot of energy. The music was also amazing. Several of my friends that happen to play in bands as well commented that Undercover was a really talented group. They brought a lot of enthusiasm to songs both old and new. We would strongly recommend Undercover to any couple planning a wedding. Additionally, we have seen them play in bars and restaurants and they perform very well in that atmosphere as well. I can’t say enough about them. They gave a great performance, were extremely professional, and from my research, very reasonably priced. You can’t go wrong!
We booked the Undercover Band for our wedding reception and they were amazing! I cant tell you how many compliments we received about the band. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night, and I even heard someone danced till they split their pants!
Thank you so much Undercover Band for making my wedding spectacular!!
Undercover was the highlight of our reception - they are spectacular. We took several months to find a band; we didn't want the traditional "wedding singer/band" that played tired run down music. We wanted quality sound, with a variety of music to rock the ages. I listened to their sound bites a dozen times before picking up the phone to call George. George blew me away - he was helpful and fun and very patient as I asked my bridal 5,000 questions.
We were on the dance floor all night, but the "kick" was when we went back to review the candid snapshots of our guests dancing - so many hysterical and very "special" dance moves - the kind you get when people are legitimately having a good time.....priceless!
Carla did such a nice job emceeing the event; your vocals are beautiful. George and the band were all about "showing our guests a good time" ---we couldn't have asked for more.
I like many of the other guests have been asked for their number; we have a work event coming up soon, and I think Undercover might have to make it back to San Francisco :)
For those of you planning your wedding, let me say this - your wedding music sets the tone for the evening --- seek out the best of the best.
Undercover -- thank you for making our special day spectacular!

Undercover Live, is an amazing band who I highly recommend to perform at any wedding or function that you want to dance and have a GREAT TIME !!!! They sounded awesome from begining to end.
They're nothing short of Awesome! I can't give them enough praise on how great they are. Incredibly talented, personable, accomadating, professional and easy going. The lead singer is pretty cute too. They put on a great show and keep the energy high, which keeps the dance floor full. You're wedding will suck if you don't book them now!
I would HIGHLY recommend Undercover. Our dance floor was FULL the entire night and I got a ton of compliments on them. We loved them so much we got them to play an extra 30 minutes.
The highlight of the evening was a dance off between the groom's friends and my friend's. I'm disappointed to say the bride's side lost, but it was SO much fun.
Thank you Undercover for making our night.

Undercover did a great job at my daughter's wedding this past weekend. They were great in the planning process, including taking on a kinda quirky new father-daughter dance song. They also worked with my daughter in setting up the songs before hand.
When we arrived at the reception hall they were tuned and up and ready to perform. The musicians were well rehearsed and worked well with each other. The lead singer was an excellent performer and engaging. They were were having fun performing and that just heightened the fun for the wedding quests.
I would enthusiastically recommend them to any friends and family for weddings or any other performance needs.
Undercover is an amazing band to work with - from beginning to end. They spent time with us over the phone and via email getting to know us, our style, and all of our special requests for the big day. The band learned a song just for me to sing to my husband at the reception. Their music, energy, and stage presence are so incredibly awesome. They kept everything on schedule for us, had everything right, and everything was perfect. Our colors were black and hot pink and they even coordinated their outfits. They all looked so good and professional, and sounded even more amazing! We highly recommend them if you're looking for a great, high-energy, fun reception!
When I grow up - I want these guys to play at my big party!
Best renditions, incredible talent, super cool cats! Current hits - Best of the classics!
You won't be...

They always aim to please when it comes to special requests. Need your first dance song specially arranged, no problem. I enthusiastically endorse Undercover Live. Best entertainment company out there.
Fantastic group of exceptional entertainers. Their sound will definitely get you out of your seats and onto the dance floor. They are very engaging and will keep the party hopping all night long!!!
Undercover really knows how to get people up and dancing! They are professional and easy to work with. Working with them is always a pleasure!
I worked with this band a few weeks ago and I can honestly say I was very impressed. Very appropriate music for any wedding and never too loud.
I loved working with Undercover! They are so energetic and really had everyone on the dance floor...the bride and groom had to extend them to overtime because they just couldn't stop the fun. Carla, the MC and lead female vocalist is just SO super cute and fun...not to mention how awesome all of the other the band members are. I cannot wait to work with them again soon, it made my night even more fun.
"Hi George, It was a pleasure to meet you and work with your band. Carla was spectacular all along the way. It was an unfortunate start with the electrical challenges, however things do happen and it is really all about the way it gets handled. You handled it beautifully, efficiently and very professionally. Once you got it started, I have to say I was extremely impressed. My brother is a musician and it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to music entertainment…….. I look forward to working with you again in the future and would highly recommend you to any client looking for a band that can "make the party happen".
