  • When I first set out to find a band for our wedding, I was extremely overwhelmed. There were so many choices, each band had a different vibe, the quotes ranged significantly, and I was worried that in the end, I would be disappointed with my choice. I visited a few of the main wedding planning websites and started looking at their reviews when I came across the Ben Mallare Band. I LOVED their promotional material. It was current, exciting, the vocals and band were impressive but most importantly…everyone looked like they were having a blast (both band and wedding guests)! I reached out to Ben Mallare and heard back within a couple hours (which wasn’t my experience with multiple other bands I reached out to who never got back to me). I could tell he was a pro and he immediately made me feel at ease. My gut said I wouldn’t be disappointed, and my gut couldn’t have been more on point. Ben and his team made the entire process absolutely painless. He catered to special requests, ... Read more

  • The absolute best band for your wedding, our guests couldn't have had more fun. Ben and team made all of the planning extremely easy, and even accommodated us having live guitarists for the ceremony, full band for the reception, and even a dj for the late night. We had multiple people ask us for the band's contact info during the wedding, as people were absolutely impressed with the performance. Everything was perfect - the instruments, the singing, the constant dancing atmosphere. People couldn't pull themselves away from the dance floor. We can't say enough good things about this entire team.

  • Ben Mallare Band was the best hire of our wedding night hands down. Symeon was our coordinator and Stefan was our Emcee and they were both awesome! We were nervous to have our first dance/father-daughter/mother-son dances to live performances, but they absolutely killed it! The covers of the songs we chose were done beautifully and flawlessly. Our guests were out on the dance floor all night long, and so were we!! We’ve been asked repeatedly for the band’s info and got so many comments about how great they were and how fun they made our big night. We can’t put into words how awesome they were, all we can say is, if you want to actually have fun at your wedding...book them!! You will not regret it.

  • Ben Mallare absolutely ROCKED at our daughter's wedding in Malibu! They were WONDERFUL to work with and accommodated every one of our requests from learning the father/daughter dance to providing the prelude, processional and recessional music! They kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening! I can't say enough about Symeon Tzvetkov, the executive coordinator! He was incredibly professional and coordinated every detail perfectly! We had so many wedding guests remark on our AMAZING BAND! I highly recommend them and hope to use them again one day!

  • Ben Mallare was a pleasure to work with, as he was super responsible to emails and made us feel as though we were in good hands! We were fortunate enough to have Chantry and his band play at our wedding reception. Talk about INCREDIBLE! They know how to get the party started and keep it going all night! Everyone raved about how AMAZING they were and we could not agree more! We highly recommend them :)

  • We couldn’t be happier with the Ben Mallare Band. All the important things you stress about were a breeze - they were on time, professional, full of energy and made our day something to remember. Our guests are still talking about how fun the band was! The dance floor was never empty and everyone was bummed when we had to kill the music. Both the live band and DJ were phenomenal and all-around talented musicians. They know how to blend throwbacks, classics and new-hits together so everyone can enjoy the dance floor. Also, our wedding brought together two different cultures, and they made the entire day feel seamless and authentic (plus, they were great about welcoming all our customs, games, etc.) It was all so much fun and they played a huge part in setting the mood - we just wish the music kept going and we had more time with these guys. Recommend to everyone!

  • The Ben Mallare Entertainment group was just excellent for all our wedding ceremony sound and reception entertainment needs! Ben’s group is very professional and responsive through the planning process. They provided us with exactly what we needed for the ceremony including speakers, a microphone stand, and handheld and lapel microphones. During the reception, we specifically had the All-Stars group with Rebecca and Gabriel as our lead singers. Because we planned our wedding from the East Coast, we needed to make our wedding band decision based on the Ben’s provided video examples. We were already confident that this group would be awesome from the videos, but on the day of, they well exceeded our expectations. They played such a great selection of background music during the dinner, did a fantastic job MC-ing, and absolutely killed the dancing part of the evening! Many of our guests (and of all ages) came up to us during the reception saying this wedding band was one of the best t... Read more

  • Ben Mallare and his LA team were amazing for our wedding at Bel Air Bay Club. Even the venue coordinator said (before the wedding) “I heard them during soundcheck and they were great!”. They got our guests dancing all night long and pumped up our guests. They sounded awesome, we’re reasonably priced, and super easy to work with in the planning process. Definitely recommend them :)

  • When my husband and I spoke about what our non-negotiables were for our wedding a band was one of them. We had been to nearly 30 weddings together before our own and loved the energy a great band brought to the party. We were so thankful that our planner for Ben Mallare for us, because they were a hidden gem. They learned new songs that we had wanted for the ceremony and for first dances. We danced the entire evening including the time they spent packing up their equipment at the end of the night! They read the crowd and kept people on the dance floor during the reception, which is exactly what we wanted. The next day at our farewell brunch and even to this day we have friends and family comment on how amazing the band was and all we can say is, “Yeah, we know. They were the best.”

  • We hired Ben Mallare Signature Band plus horns for our wedding in July and we couldn't be happier! I cannot tell you how many guests came up to us to tell us how amazing our band was. Ben kept everyone dancing all night with back to back hits ! We are still so blown away by the band's musicianship, professionalism, and overall performance - we hope someone we know hires him so we can see them perform again! In all honesty, Ben and his team were outstanding from start to finish. They nailed our first dance song that we asked them to learn, they handled all our questions leading up to the big day, and truly made our reception a night to remember. Thank you Ben and the band!!

  • Ben Mallare’s band performed at my wedding in June for the ceremony and reception. All my guests were impressed. My wife’s boss wants to book them for a future corporate event. Talented musicians. Charismatic. Fun. Production quality performance that adapts to the situation…makes your first dance look like a TV show level production with spot on timing and transitions. You take a bow and they end the song and transition to next. Great MC. Great coordination. They were able to accommodate a unique venue layout for the stage no problem. Hand in glove process. BOOK BEN MALLARE!!

  • The Ben Mallare band is amazing!! They made our night so special, from the acoustic guitar at the ceremony, to the cocktail hour acoustics and the full band playing all night at the reception- they nailed it. Everyone was on the floor dancing having a great time and the band kept the energy up the whole night. We are so over the moon happy having the Ben Mallare Band at our wedding. It was magic.

  • To be honest, Ben's band was our third choice initially, and that was only because we didn't find his band on our initial search. However, once we heard his promo video and spoke with him over the phone, we knew he was the right choice to play for our wedding. He went out of his way to make our event amazing. We did not need him to perform the ceremony, so he brought an additional musician, which really filled out the sound. And, even when out timeline got a little messed up during the event, the band handled it like absolute pros. Even when something went "wrong" (the band missed a cue), the piano player played it off like nothing was wrong and just lightly soloed over our speech until it was time for the band to come in. As a musician myself, that is a level of musicianship and professionalism that really makes a difference. From the moment the first note was played by the band, the dance floor was occupied. We received numerous comments from our friends and guests that t... Read more

  • Ben Mallare and his talented group was a HUGE hit at our wedding. They got everyone dancing the entire time. Guests are still raving about it over a month after our wedding. They played music that was good for all ages too. Ben was super easy to work with leading up to the wedding too. He responded to all inquires very quickly, which is so helpful when planning a wedding. I would hire them again in a heart beat!

  • Ben and his team were absolutely amazing! They were a huge help throughout the whole planning process. We had multiple locations for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception and they were willing to help with everything! On the actual day of the event they exceeded all our expectations. For cocktail hour they did an acoustic set with part of their band, for dinner they did a classic set, and then for the reception they absolutely killed it with a wide variety of music for everyone!! It was so great to have an endless variety of music. Throughout the WHOLE night and after the wedding everyone complemented us on how amazing the band was and one of the best bands they have experienced at a wedding. I cannot recommend Ben and his team more!!
