About Side One Entertainment
Dancing takes up half of your reception, but all too often it's a part of the wedding that is overlooked. If you want your party to be a barn burner, having a live band is a must - and having the right live band can make or break your night! Side One was founded by an event planner and a musican and is set up to meet all your needs for the big day, not the least of which is burning up the dance floor. Side One is not your cliche wedding band in frilly tuxedos playing Mustang Sally, they are young, dynamic entertainers and professional musicians, and will rock your wedding for a price that won't make you cry.
Side One offers an extensive repertoire covering everything from Aretha, Tina Turner, the Beatles and the Stones right up to the most current hits by the likes of Kanye, Nikki Minaj, Flo Rida, and the Biebs. Side One will customize the set to meet your style and entertain absolutely all your guests. And they promise that at no point there will be any YMCA-ing! They basically shrivel up and die anytime they hear of the chicken dance being played at a wedding. Side One also offers live music options for your ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner, and audio solutions for mics for your officiant, MC and speakers - basically anything audio for your event, they have you covered!
Side One Entertainment are available for travel anywhere in the world and have bands locally based in:
Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario

Absolutely incredible! They played our wedding in Roche Harbor, Washington and blew the doors off the venue. They played for almost three hours straight with no break and had the dance floor full the entire time. Two weeks later and we are still receiving compliments on how incredible they were. Top 40, R&B, 90s hits, and classic rock... they nailed it all. If you don't book them for your. Pacific Northwest wedding you are not doing it right! Rob & Co. are the best of the best.

I first saw Side One perform at a work function and they left such a good impression that 4 years later when I started planning our wedding I told my fiance that we HAD to hire them. It wasn't hard to convince him. They were amazing to deal with and their performance was unreal. The dance floor wasn't empty all night! We've had so many guests come back to us to let us know how great the band was and how they have never seen such a busy dance floor. I highly recommend spending the extra money for a dance band it totally changes the energy of the party and it's worth every penny!

Side One was amazing!! We used Side One during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor all night and had an amazing time. They played a variety of hits that appealed to our wide range of wedding guests. Our wedding wouldn't have been as much fun without them!

It's not even really a question of whether or not we'd recommend Side One for a wedding. We absolutely would but more than that, if we had friends even considering a band, we'd badger them relentlessly until they booked Side One. There are three things that I just thought they did incredibly well.
1) The playlist. Absolutely perfect for us. I like indie, my wife loves hip-hop and our guests' tastes varied even more. The band put together an unbelievable playlist that really suited our group.
2) The performance. Wow. We thought that we might have thrown them a bit of a curve ball with a tricky first dance song and we're wondering if they'd be able to pull it off. They did. And it was perfect. But there were just so many great moments throughout the night that we never would have imagined like when the female singer (sorry- don't have your name) raps the verse in No Diggity. Amazing!
3) The energy. Our wedding wasn't a large one (about 80 people) and we were worried that we might not be able to keep the dance floor full. Not a problem at all. There wasn't a single song that felt phoned in or like the band was just going through the motions and I've never seen our friends dance like they did that night.
Thank you again so much. You were one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. We wouldn't have changed a single note.

Side One is a phenomenal band. They created a positive environment and the dance floor was packed from the beginning until the end. If they played until 6am the dance floor (filled with people both young and old) would have stayed rocking the entire time. Side One was a game changer and we're trying to dream up another event... With Side One of course.
