  • Royal Dukes Band ensured that the dance floor was never empty at our reception. Josh worked with me in the weeks leading up to our wedding with the type of music we were looking for and worked with us in our special requests. They have a wide range of songs in their repertoire and the few obscure songs we absolutely wanted to hear they let us put in a playlist to play during their break. We received compliments throughout our reception and after about how great they were. One of our guests has even booked them in her wedding next year, as a result. Thanks Josh and the Royal Dukes Band team!

  • The Royal Dukes Band played at our wedding and they were truly incredible. From the minute we contacted them to the wedding date they were extremely nice and had great service. They were willing to walk us through every part of the process of the wedding and gave us suggestions based on their expertise and made our requests happen. We had them sing our first dance song and it was incredibly special and unique. They were a blast the whole night, all our guests commented on how much better it was to have a band rather than a DJ. We had a 9 piece band for the reception but only a few played during cocktail hour and during dinner which was perfect for the atmosphere. They interacted with the crowd so well, they knew exactly what to play when and would engage people starting a dance off between our younger cousins. Overall this band was amazing!! They definitely helped to make our night unforgettable and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • Choosing The Royal Dukes band was one of the best choices my husband and I made for our wedding. I found them online and was hooked as soon as I heard the sample music on their website. We went to see them at a band preview in Austin and had the best time. We knew at that point that we 100% we wanted them at our wedding. Ryan (the lead singer) was incredibly helpful when it came to answering my questions and helping us decide how many piece band we should choose based on our music preferences and wedding size. They offer several different options which is great for all budgets. When it came to the day of the wedding, they did not disappoint. All of our guests loved the band and gave us compliments all night for choosing them. It was obvious that they were creating a good time because the dance floor was packed all night. In fact, I danced to every single song!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band and doesn't want the traditional cheesy wedding songs.

  • From the initial contact through the event itself, the band provided a completely stress free experience. We were given a customized web page to send updates and requests, and any email communication was answered quickly. The band provided precisely what we had asked for! You cannot go wrong with the Royal Dukes band!!

  • If you want your guests to have a good time and dance the night away at your wedding reception, immediately hire Royal Dukes Band!! They were absolutely awesome and we got tons of compliments on the band/music throughout the night. Ryan and the team are great to work with - from giving you an easy worksheet to fill out to prep for the reception, to quick responses to emails and everything in between - they were awesome! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed having them play at our reception. Hire them now!

  • The Royal Dukes Band did a fabulous job at our wedding. We've had numerous guests compliment us on how well they did. They engaged guests of all ages. We had people from 5 years old to 75 years old out on the dance floor at one time. It was exactly what we hoped for! I would without a doubt recommend Royal Dukes Band to anyone planning a wedding. Skip the DJ and go with the real thing. It's worth every penny!

  • My son was married this past 4th of July in Dripping Spring, Texas. It got very interesting because we live in Houston, my daughter-in-law was from Naples, Florida but recently moved to the Dallas area and my son was living in Buffalo, NY. They had decided to get married in Dripping Springs, Texas so most of the band was from Austin. We actually hand picked our female vocals from Dallas and our male vocals and keyboardist from Houston. I could not wait to hear them all together and they didn't disappoint. Everyone loved them! It looks like my daughter might be getting married within this next year and if they are available, I will be hiring them again. They were on time and ready to play when asked. When the wedding party was introduced, the wrong music began to play for the first dance on the iPod. The band asked what song it was and then began to play it live. They were very apologetic but I thought they recovered well. They even allowed my dad to sing our Mother/Son song with their ... Read more

  • One of the best wedding bands we can remember hearing, we are delighted to have had these folks at our event. The playlists were just right so that guests of varied ages were all up and dancing. Volume was perfect, no one felt unable to have a conversation. When lots of folks are on the dance floor, it is a really good sign, and that's what the Royal Dukes accomplished. We used their six piece band. They were easy to deal with and super flexible, and accommodated our request (late in the process) for help with ceremony music and a mic for the officiant without any hassles. Julian coordinated for us, and did a terrific job; he handled the prep meeting, the bride & groom's requests, and made sure things ran smoothly. Many of our guests commented positively on the band, they were great.

  • The Royal Dukes Band recently played at our reception and they were awesome!! The music was nothing less than perfect and they played songs that were fitting for whatever the moment was. My husband and I did not have any specific songs for the band to play besides the first dances and we put our trust in RDB to pick great songs to get the guests dancing and they did just that. They went above and beyond what we could have expected and made sure that everyone was having a good time. Ryan and Samantha are amazing singers and I was so excited that we got to have both of them perform. Josh was my contact throughout the whole process and he was very helpful and patient when I had a million questions. I was planning my wedding by myself from hours away which was not always the easiest but Josh was able to always help and answer all question to calm my nerves. Everyone was wonderful to work with and was so much fun. It was fun seeing all the photo booth pictures and seeing the band had taken ... Read more

  • Where do I begin?!? RDB was one if not the best vendor we used for our wedding. They blew us away with their talent and ability to play all genres of music. Our guests danced the entire night and we have received dozens of compliments about how great they were. There really aren't any words to describe their performance on our wedding night. They were absolutely amazing!

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Royal Dukes. They played our wedding reception recently, and it was an absolute blast! All of the band members are extremely talented musicians. All of our guests raved about them, and the dance floor was full the entire time. Plus, they ended the party on a perfect high note (who doesn't love "Shout" by the Isley Brothers!). Ryan, the manager (and a really awesome singer!) was wonderful to work with in the planning stages. They set up a band page for you where you can tell them exactly what you want (and edit it easily in case you change your mind). Ryan was also a fantastic MC the night of the wedding. My new husband and I and all of our wedding guests had an absolute blast thanks to The Royal Dukes Band! You really cannot go wrong hiring this band for your event!

  • I don't know where to begin? I worked with Julian, the bands manager. Julian walked me through the entire process. The band followed my wedding timeline to the exact T. They even came in early to set up so that they would not interfere with our ceremony. That's how considerate they were. We had a 6 piece band, thanks to Julian, he really wanted that sax and I did too. They kept the wedding classy, fun, and they look good too. Great for a mixed crowd. They played classy stuff like Elvis and Frank Sinatra during our cocktail hour. They played everything we had asked them to play including all of the line dancing songs. They weren't too loud either. The sound was just perfect enough to the point that you could still concentrate and talk among your guests. They're priceless. I loved them! Scotte emceed and he did wonderful. He make all of the important announcements and even sang happy birthday to my husband. They played Adam Sandler's, "I Wanna Grow Old With You" during our cake cutting a... Read more
