  • Just booked The Dan McGuire group for our wedding in May of 2020! So excited to have them play at our wedding. First discovered them at a bar in Frederick, from that first time seeing them perform my friends and I have loved their energy and talent! They have been amazing about being in contact with me and my fiance. They have great ideas on their contract, are willing to answer all questions, quick with responding, and are totally willing to work to make our wedding request/dreams come true! On top of the guys being a talented band, but for weddings they travel with an expert wedding DJ to keep the guest moving and interested all night long! Can't wait for our wedding and to dance the night away to the talent of The Dan McGuire Group!

  • I originally hesitated to hire the Dan McGuire Group because my daughter's wedding was in Charleston so we had the additional cost of travel for the Group. But when I started looking at the cost of having to hire someone to play the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception and also a DJ to fill in the breaks, it was a no brainer to hire these guys! They did everything and even did the sound for the celebrant and I didn't have to worry about anything. They were all totally amazing and really gave my daughter and new son-in-law the party they really wanted. If you don't select these guys, you will miss out on the best band. EVER. Dan's vocal range is amazing and their song list is awesome PLUS they will even learn some songs just for you. Had my daughter crying during the father/daughter dance as they performed a special song my husband requested. I can't say enough about how great these guys were!

  • These guys blew the roof off of the place. The dance floor was packed all night! We’re so accommodating and nice, not to mention extremely talented and professional. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Amazing band and DJ combo!

  • I swear- I danced the entire freaking night with these guys... I seriously didn’t want to spend the money for a band but my husband won that argument... and I’m glad he did! Our wedding would not have been half as good without them. The dance floor was PACKED. Just book them. Do it!

  • Dan and Jon were extremely accommodating and were more than willing to help with anything that was needed. When the night of our wedding came, the band absolutely made the cocktail hour and reception! I got so many compliments about how great the band was and how amazing the songs were played. I more than highly recommend them. They’ll make your event unforgettable!!

  • The Dan McGuire Group was the perfect choice for our wedding. We mostly made plans through Jon and had a phone conference with Dan and Jon together to go over what we wanted. They are so professional and thorough. Their spreadsheets for planning the reception had things I never would have thought of. They handle the ceremony music, cocktail hour music and emcee the entire wedding and kept everything on track. I love that they DJ as well as have a live band. They also worked with our officiant and the sound equipment she needed. They were so flexible with allowing my brothers to perform the songs for our first dances. I believe they are fairly priced for all that they do. Everyone LOVED them and we had so much fun at our wedding because of them. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thanks again! -Aubrey & Marco Ghirardelli

  • Dan McGuire group really made our wedding. They did beautiful acoustic music for the ceremony and cocktail hour and the full band for the dancing and reception. The unique part of this group is they have a professional DJ that will DJ the band breaks and their DJ acts as the MS and coordinator. We had a different timeline/set up for our wedding and without Jon helping to coordinate I know something would have went wrong! They are extremely easy to work with, responsive and they learned special songs for us - performed them perfectly. If you are looking to have your dance floor packed all night this is the band/DJ for you!!!!

  • The only downside is that, as the bride and groom, you will be extremely jealous that all of your guests get to enjoy them for the entire event while you are off taking pictures, etc.! We used the DMG for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and it was one of our best decisions for our wedding! The planning process was seamless and by having Dan and the band and Jon as DJ, you get the best of both worlds and do not have to compromise on the pros/cons of band versus DJ. Plus the music was just amazing! Both Dan and Jon excel at what they do and they keep the energy high throughout the entire event. In addition, they provide you with a bunch of fun ideas that can make your reception that much more memorable, will learn some songs for you and were easy for other vendors to work with as far as hooking up to sound, etc. Thanks again! - Sarah and Daniel

  • We cannot say enough, and our guests have continually stated that the music choice for our wedding was perfect. The Dan McGuire group and DJ Jon were absolute professionals, Jon handled all of the MC'ing and ceremony music. Dan and the band handled cocktail hour and main entertainment during our reception. Having a live band that can totally rock and cover modern and a wide variety of songs really kept our dance floor rocking all night long. We had guests of all ages who had nothing but positive feedback. We cannot recommend them enough. Do not hesitate to book them and get excited for one of the best days and parties you are going to have!

  • These guys were great from the planning to the actual main event. They even learned a few new songs for us! The DJ did a great job of keeping the timing of everything on schedule. "I can't believe they are able to play and sing such a broad variety of music!" Highly recommend them for any event!

  • Dan and Jon did spectacular jobs as both a live music act and DJ/AV coordinator (respectively) during our wedding. Jon was attentive and scheduled multiple calls with us before our date to make sure we were all on the same page. What was really impressing about Jon was how he handled a last-minute (literally, minute) change of our ceremony from an outdoor site to a nearby indoor site due to inclement weather. On SUCH short notice, Jon hustled to get music playing while our guests found their new seats while getting three mics set up at the new location. He minimized the transition time and made the whole situation feel very natural. After the ceremony, Dan played during our cocktail hour. He chose fun, upbeat songs that set the mood. I had people coming up to me all night telling me how fun it was to have live music. Dan and Jon were absolute pros and we can't recommend them enough.
