    Best of the best!

    We were looking for something unique for our wedding, something more than the typical DJ service. Two-Bits put on nothing short of an amazing show for our special day. Every single guest commented on how much fun they had and everyone enjoyed the live music. Two-Bits even went above and beyond to learn our song for our first dance which really just made that moment the most special moment which we will remember for the rest of our lives. We 200% recommend Two-Bits!

    Just incredible.

    The Two Bit bandits were AMAZING. Honestly, the dance floor was just a riot, everyone had so much fun. Our guests could not stop talking about how good they were playing acoustic at the ceremony and with people arriving. Everyone kept coming up to me on dance floor later in the evening telling me how how great this band was. They played all genres...3 full sets and DJ'd in between so we were able to request some of our favorites ahead of time, all of which the band played.
    Jae was a pleasure to chat with, very professional and responsive to my emails and questions. Their full wedding package is perfect and at a reasonable price. They even found a wonderful female singer to add to their group for us who was fantastic.
    We STRONGLY recommend the two bit bandits for couples getting married, your guests will have a sweet time.

    Above and Beyond & Incredibly easy to work with during COVID

    Jae and the Two Bit Bandits were incredible to work with from start to the finish! They were easy to communicate with, reasonable and accommodating during COVID, and put on one heck of a performance at our Wedding. They had an issue where their drummer injured his back a few days before our wedding and was unable to play - had Jae not let me know they had a backup drummer I would have never known! Thanks for making our day so memorable and getting everyone out of their seats to dance!

    Best Wedding Band

    The Two Bit Bandits played at our wedding reception on September 4, 2021 in Edmonton, AB and they were absolutely amazing! The music was so much fun and included multiple genres with something for everyone. They had our guests dancing all night and many people commented on how much they loved the band. Including them was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding and we cannot recommend them enough. Thank you!

    Best Wedding Band Ever!

    If you want your dancefloor bumping all night long... look no further and book these guys! They played everything from country, classic rock, 90s hits to hip hop medleys. It was an awesome night and all of our guests have since commented on how awesome the band was. Coming from a music lover and attendee of many live concerts... you will not be disappointed!

    Excellent band

    Hired for our ceremony and reception. Provided the sound/lighting/AV equipment and also DJ services between their sets. It was important to us to have a great band to keep everyone on the dance floor, and this band definitely delivered. Able to play a wide range of music to keep everyone engaged. Also willing to do a number of special requests. Strongly recommend this band, great musicians at a very affordable rate.

    Best wedding decision we made!

    If you want to have a fun wedding reception, the Two-Bit Bandits are your ticket! These guys absolutely blew us away. They learned 2 new songs for us for our ceremony and first dance (and nailed them!), and legitimately kept the dance floor packed all night. EVERYONE who came couldn't stop talking about how amazing the band was. This is the place to spend money on your wedding. No one will remember your flowers, or centre pieces, but everyone will remember how much fun they had partying with the Two Bit Bandits! Cannot recommend them enough!

    Groom with one task.... The band

    Your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life, and when you are in charge of music/entertainment/band... Do the smart thing and hire The Two Bit Bandits. My only responsibility for the Wedding was to find the band and now that the wedding is over, everyone keeps raving about THE BAND and of course the Gorgeous Bride:)

    Amazing Band for our Wedding!

    The Two Bit Bandits were the perfect choice for our wedding band! They were amazing at reading the crowd and kept the dance floor full all night long! During the time when they DJ'd, they took requests and also did a great job of keeping everyone dancing. We would highly recommend them!

    Best wedding band in Alberta!

    Choosing The Two Bit Bandits as our wedding band was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning. From covers of classics to their different "mash-ups", these guys kept all generations of guests on the dance floor until late in the evening. Despite sometimes being slow to answer emails, they communicated well, made time to meet us in person before the wedding, and made sure that all the same details were sorted out before the wedding day. On the day of the wedding, they showed up with all the necessary equipment and lots of time to set up. They were professional, organized, and flexible - even letting a guest use their equipment for an impromptu performance. These guys are excellent musicians and nailed every song they played. Weeks out from the wedding, we are still having guests comment on "that amazing band"! If you are looking for a band for your event, this is the one!
