    Amazing band!

    The band was extremely flexible working with us while we navigated the pandemic and had to reschedule multiple times. We wanted a big dance party and, with them, it was worth the wait. They played an amazing show and many guest said it was one of the best weddings that they had been to because of the band. They not only played songs we picked in advance, but took requests from guests. We would highly recommend them for any event!

    Big City All Star Band's reply:

    Thank you so much Kate! It's crazy how much has happened since we first talked a couple years ago, but it was all so worth it in the end. We had an amazing night with you and Thomas and all your friends, and love hearing that you and your guests did too!

    Life of the party!

    World class performance from world class performers! BIg City All Star Band was the biggest hit at our wedding and we constantly have our guests reaching out to us to say how much they loved the band. They had our guests dancing till 1 am and the dance floor was packed. Cannot say enough to recommend them, they were phenomenal.

    Best band ever!

    I don't think i's often that your wedding guests STILL talk about the band at your wedding a year after your special day. Well, that's our case having had Big City All Star Band play at our wedding in July 2021. Countless of our guests are STILL sharing memories of "the best live band they've ever heard". Carlin and his band members are so incredibly talented, playing a vast repertoire of music. When you can consistently appease the musical tastes of your entire guest list, you know you are doing something right. Prior to our wedding day, Carlin was a great communicator and wonderful to work with as he was flexible during ever changing covid restrictions and understanding and willing to discuss options within our budget. Carlin was also able to set up the mics and sound system and play our pre-selected music during the ceremony and cocktail hour. A complete surprise and amazing bonus was the band's photographer, Nicole Majury, taking phenomenal photographs of our reception and sharing them with us! Seriously, book Big City All Star Band. You will have NO regrets, I promise!

    Big City All Star Band's reply:

    Hey Kelsey & Jordan, these are exactly the words that make everything we do feel so worthwhile! We were thrilled to be a part of your big day, and both of you were total sweethearts throughout the whole process. It was truly an amazing night. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this and we wish you guys all the best!

    Worth every penny

    Big City All Stars was incredible. I had so many comments from guests about how good they were/the music was. Carlin was super easy to work with, flexible and is of course very talented. I highly recommend them for any event.

    Excellent Band, unlike any other

    This is a fabulous band! I am a wedding planner by profession and when it was my turn to get married, I had no doubt in my mind I needed to book BCAS. Actually, my husband and I booked our wedding date around the band's availability (!) so they were one of the first vendors we hired and boy did they not disappoint. One year later, everyone still talks about our wedding reception. From a guitarist at the ceremony to first dance to the band sets to the DJ-ing in between, this is THE band to book. I always recommend them to my clients. You will not regret it!

    The hottest band in Winnipeg

    This amazing group of musicians left our guests wanting more and did not want the music to stop! I would not hesitate to recommend this band for your next event!

    Fantastic!

    Beautiful music!! Big City All Star Band was the most flexible and accommodating during our wedding planning, and the music at our ceremony was absolutely beautiful! You'll be getting high quality music and I guarantee your guests will love it! Would recommend to anyone!

    Big City All Star Band's reply:

    Thanks Jenna! We were so happy to be able to make something work for you despite there still being some restrictions in place. It really couldn't have been a more special day and we were honoured to be able to play for you. All the best to you and Lee!
