    You definitely want Side One for your wedding!

    When we first started planning our New Years Eve wedding our goal was to throw an epic party that everyone would remember, so a live band was a must. We came across Side One on Wedding Wire and started reading their reviews—all great. We then watched a few YouTube videos and were sold. Admittedly, I was a little nervous since we hadn't seen them perform live but all my doubts immediately disappeared as soon as they went on. They absolutely killed it! All of our guests, both young and old, were on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone keeps raving about how awesome the band was. The set list was spot on and they nailed all of our requests. We wanted an epic party and Side One most definitely delivered!

    On top of everything, the communication and accommodation by Rob & co leading up to the day was great, which cannot be overstated when you're planning a wedding.

    If you're looking for an awesome wedding band, do yourself a favour and book these guys! You will not be disappointed.

    Great band!

    Side One played at our wedding in Seattle and they were AWESOME!! Rob played guitar for our outdoor ceremony, which was exactly the vibe we were going for. Then we had an 8 person band for the reception, and they were fantastic. Super talented, great energy, and really had people on the dance floor! They also did a pretty extended hora, which was amazing!! A good band was a priority for us for our wedding, so we did a lot of research on this, and Side One did not disappoint!
    They were also a pleasure to work with in the lead up to the wedding. Would definitely recommend!!

    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.

    Best,
    Jeff & Lena

    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.

    I am the mother of the groom and I must say that this band was exceptional. The demographic at a wedding can be diverse, as are music tastes, but this band kept our guests on the dance floor all night.
    Feedback from our guests included: best wedding reception band I have ever heard, the band was outstanding, wow, they put their heart and soul into their music, and on and on. Thank you to this group for fulfilling our hope for a wonderful celebration for our family. You are amazing

    Side One was amazing from the start. They were professional and went above and beyond, helping with other aspects of our wedding. They kept every guest on the dance floor all night - even those who claim the never ever dance. They blew us and our guests away, leaving us with amazing memories we will always cherish.

    Side One Rocks! We had the 8 piece band play for our wedding reception and they had everyone dancing all night long. Our guests didn't want to leave because they were having too much fun. In the weeks following the wedding, we received many unsolicited comments from guests indicating how much they enjoyed the music. Rob and his team are great to work with and very professional. They not only learned our first dance song but absolutely nailed it. The night could not have been better.

    Thank you Side One for making our big day so amazing.
