We hired Dr. Strangelove to perform at our Wedding, they were absolutely the Highlight of the night, it was the best decision we made for entertainment for us and our guests. They had everyone on the dance floor, even the non-dancers got up and danced to them. They got the energy going and kept it up all night long. The entire band were so professional and so helpful with song choices based on our crowd. It's been 2 months since out Wedding and people are still talking about them and how they danced and danced. For us it made our Wedding Reception an unforgettable time. A BIG thanks to each of the band members for making our Wedding unforgettable not only for my husband and I but for all our guests too ! Thank You So Much :)

Thank you to Dr. Strangelove for providing the fantastic entertainment at Sarah and Stephen's wedding. The energy level and fun had by all age groups was a testimonial to the great talent and crowd awareness of the band. The guest feedback was uniformly positive. Dr. Strangelove's music was a major contribution to the success of the evening.

Dr Strangelove rocked the house at our wedding last august. We have seen them many times at the Roxy and at the Bowen Island Dock Dance and knew that they were who we wanted to hire.
They exceeded all expectations and everybody was dancing and having a blast.
I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to hire a band for an event or party.

We hired Dr. Strangelove for our daughters wedding last September and let me tell you they were amazing. Right from the booking process to the actual event day they were professional and personable and made the process so easy during what can be a stressful time. They accommodated all our daughter and her husbands song requests for all parts of the reception. We had 230 guests and there were at least half of them on the dance floor the whole time. Guests are still raving about what fun they had dancing up a storm to these amazing performers. If you are looking for a wedding band don't hesitate to contact Dr. Strangelove, I promise you won't be dissapointed:):) John & Erin Coughlan.

I've been watching Dr. Strangelove since the days of sneaking into the Roxy. These guys are like the Madonna of live bands; familiar yet constantly evolving. They can play all the classics you love, while also staying current and fresh. With just the right amount of playful banter and huge musical talent, they always put on an amazing show and no one leaves without a smile on their face.

We had the pleasure of having Dr. Strangelove be a part of our wedding this summer and they were very professional getting things in order for us which was appreciated. They take their craft seriously and it shows.

They consulted with us on venue details for an appropriate sound rig, and also worked with us to help decide on musical numbers to play for our first dance. They even offered to learn new songs for us if needed which was fantastic.

There is plenty to be stressed about when it comes to planning a wedding (as we learned) but we always rested easy that when it came to the dance (and we all know that's the best part!) the night would be unforgettable.

The energy these guys bring to your event is worth every penny and is something that canned music simply cannot match. Its was truly special being able to dance the night away and see every generation having a blast.

My only words of warning with Dr. Strangelove would be availability. When you're good, you're busy, and they are both! So don't expect to contact them on Monday for your party on Friday. Get in touch with them sooner than later for your best chance to have them be a part of your event.

We had an amazing day with an unforgettable finale thanks to this talented group.

Thank you Dr. Strangelove!!
