    Best band ever!

    We hired Famous Players as our wedding band after seeing them perform at my brother's wedding a few years ago. They were just as fantastic for our event, playing an amazing 2 hour set that kept people dancing the night away! They played a mix of classic favourites and songs that came out as recently as within the past few weeks. Every song sounded great, and they brought an awesome energy to the performance.
    They also provided us with a jazz trio that played during dinner, and an acoustic guitarist for our ceremony. They were also wonderful and we received feedback from our guests that the music was by far the best they'd ever heard at a wedding. Don't hesitate to hire them for your events!

    Great wedding and party band.

    I've seen them at a few events here in Vancouver. They always throw down! They got the party going each time. Easy to recommend.

    This was the best money we spent on our wedding, worth every penny! Kelly helped us out from the start with logistics and we probably had about 50 emails back and forth the few months leading up. He was patient and on the ball with everything. They absolutely ROCKED. When our wedding ended people across town could hear the crowd yelling "One more song! One more song!" Our guests were dancing from start to finish and didn't want the party to end. It was an experience that was unforgettable. They are amazing, classy, fun, and total pros.

    We hired The Famous Players for our June, 2013, wedding in Seattle, and it was one of the best decisions we made. The band was sensational. We wanted a band that could play everything from Journey to Louis Armstrong to Flo Rida and we got that and so much more. While the FPs aren’t cheap, they are well worth the money and every single guest continues to rave about them weeks after our wedding. If you are looking for a high energy dance party, you can’t go wrong with these guys. We opted for the 10-piece with horns and all band members were so so talented and great. Since we are a bit biased, here are some quotes from our wedding coordinator and photographer, both of whom have worked countless weddings:

    “I overheard so many wonderful compliments about the day and EVERYONE seemed to LOVE the band. Who by the way, was VERY easy and great to work with.”

    “Dancing... dancing and more dancing provided by the rockin band Famous Players Band… your wedding definitely set the bar very high for a great wedding.”
