  • Ben Mallare Entertainment (BME) exceeded all expectations and performed beyond our wildest dreams! BME played at our wedding in St. Michaels, MD in April 2021 and was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. It was the number one compliment from our guests – everyone LOVED them! We got an 8-piece band and were blown away by the quality of the performance. Both Ben and Samantha ROCKED it as lead vocalists! Ben Mallare has a gift for leading all the guests into creating a fun party atmosphere and kept everyone dancing and engaged all night long. We were a thrice-rescheduled COVID wedding and Ben and his planning team were engaged, supportive and sympathetic every step of the way. They are a well-oiled machine in terms of communication, logistics and noticing the small details. If you’re looking for the best of the best, a show-stopping band and a night to remember – book Ben Mallare Entertainment!

  • 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.

  • The Ben Mallare Band is truly amazing and worth every penny!!! We had our wedding in Maui, and The Ben Mallare Band was by far the best decision I made for our entire wedding! I had seen their YouTube clips and knew I had to have specifically Ben sing at our wedding. His voice is amazing and the perfect pitch for any song. I also had two other female vocalists, a guitar, bass, and percussion. We requested a song by the Avett Brothers for our first dance, as well as a slow Taylor Swift song, and both were amazing!! The band judged the crowd perfectly and picked the perfect songs to play throughout the night that I couldn’t have picked better myself! Every time someone I know gets engaged I can’t refrain from calling them to tell them they have to have the Ben Mallare Band at their wedding because it will be the best decision they have ever made! I can’t wait until the day I get to hear them play again!

  • The Ben Mallare band MADE our New Years Eve wedding! They were so easy to communicate with and helped us create the wedding of our dreams. The performers were BEYOND talented and all of our guests are still raving about how much fun they had dancing the night away. We hired the Ben Mallare band to play music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They learned a handful of unique songs we wanted to incorporate throughout the evening (one being "You Will be Found" by Dear Evan Hansen) and they absolutely nailed it! Their prices are incredibly fair for the insane talent they bring. I'd look no further and book them ASAP :)

  • We were thrilled to have hired Ben Mallare & Band for our wedding in October and couldn’t have been happier with their performance and professionalism. From the outset Ben and his coordinators were very responsive to any questions we had leading up to the day of. We asked for some last minute changes to song selections and they were more than happy to accommodate and played them perfectly. Their energy the entire night and ability to read the crowd was fantastic and kept people on the floor the entire time they were playing. We also used Ben as an MC which made for a seamless transition during the speeches and breaks. We received so many comments on how impressive their song selection range was and how lively they kept everything. When we saw family and friends over the holiday’s people were still commenting on how amazing the band was. Do yourself a favor and don’t overthink it – book Ben and his talented team for your special day!

  • 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.

  • If you are planning for your wedding when the world is no longer upside down and are considering Ben Mallare Events & Entertainment, I promise you, booking Ben’s team will be the best decision you make! We know so many couples (including our closest friends and family members) have had to postpone or rethink their special days. It has been over a year since our wedding and with so much change and uncertainty in 2020, my husband and I have been doing a lot of reflecting. Over a year later, not one person can recall the food we served or the flowers on the table, but people still mention our wedding band and rave about the dance party! People being tossed in the air, the floor rolling with movement (thought it was going to break!) and people of ALL ages dancing the night away! I was lucky enough to attend a family friend’s wedding in Seattle with my parents where Andy and Jessa headlined. We were blown away by their talent and professionalism and it was the ONLY request my Da... Read more

  • 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.”
